Collaborating with a Team
Office 365 features a Team Site where you can collaborate with other users whom you invite and give permission to participate at various levels; they can also have email capability through the Team site or only share or view documents.
People with access to the Team Site can read and see messages and shared documents that are posted using the web applications, or uploaded from a desktop version of Office (see Figure 7).
Figure 7 Office 365 provides a Team Site for collaboration with others.
You can use the Website tab of the Team Site window to configure your Team Site with its own design, including adding pictures or other elements (see Figure 8).
Figure 8 Adding a picture to a Team Site is done through the Website tab.
You can add users with whom to collaborate under Add Users in the Admin tab, and manage their permissions and licenses under Management.
Each new user can be granted one or more of the following licenses:
- Lync Online: Access to the messaging feature.
- SharePoint Online: The team site and use of the Web Apps.
- Exchange: An Outlook profile and access to email, contacts, and calendar.
In the Outlook area under Admin, you can add external users to your Exchange Server installation under General settings, or set up distribution groups of people with whom to communicate.
