Microsoft Teams is a chat-centered workspace in Microsoft 365. It brings people, conversations, files, and tools into one place, so everyone has instant access to everything — facilitate meetings, chat one-on-one, make audio or video calls, and connect your Teams site to third-party apps safely.
Be sure you have Duo to provide multi-factor authentication (MFA) with Microsoft 365 applications - including Teams - when on-campus or off-campus. OIT recommends using the Microsoft Teams desktop or mobile device application for access to all your Teams from your phone or other mobile device so that you only need to authenticate about every 90 days.
