Microsoft Teams is a collaboration app that helps your team stay organized and have conversations—all in one place. Here's a quick look at the left hand side of Teams.
To get your team up and running in Microsoft Teams, create a team, add people, and add channels. You can add people, groups, or even entire contact groups. If you need to add people from outside your organization, use their email address to invite them as guests. Add a friendly display name for them too. Use the command box at the top to search for specific items or people, take quick actions, and launch apps. Global administrators can create an organization-wide team that automatically adds everyone in your organization.
By default, every team gets a General channel, which is a good channel to use for announcements and information the whole team needs. To add more channels:
Working in Microsoft Teams lets you work on files together at the same time. Also, messages about the document stay with it and will show up in your team conversations.

Start 1:1 or group chats to collaborate with a smaller group or to talk privately, and pin chats for quick access.
Select Video call or Audio call to call someone directly from a chat.
To unpin a chat, select More options > Unpin.
Making Calls With Teams
Start 1:1 or group calls with anyone in your organization — no matter where you are in Microsoft Teams. If your organization has an Enterprise Voice or Business Voice license, you can call anyone from Teams even if they're not using it.
Add a delegate to answer or make calls on your behalf in Microsoft Teams.
Join a Microsoft Teams meeting from your calendar, via dial-in number and conference ID, or sign in as a guest on the web. Even if you don't have the Teams app, you can still join a Teams meeting.
In Microsoft Teams, you can show your desktop, a specific app, presentation, or any file while in a meeting.
If you need to present in an online meeting, show your PowerPoint slides right from the Microsoft Teams meeting menu.
