In this article we’ll look into how to setup and add Microsoft Teams in your O365 tenant. Here, I am using Office 365 Developer Tenant, (to sign up for Office 365 Developer program, please use this link, free for one year). Once you successfully signed up, you can login to this page https://www.office.com/ In my Office 365 Home page nothing has been added so far, so its bit empty as you can see from the below screenshot.
Click on Admin and it will take you to O365 Admin Center. From the side navigation, expand Settings and click on Services & add-ins
Microsoft Teams will be available from the list of add-ins, click on Microsoft Teams. By the time I access Teams, Microsoft has moved few settings like – General Settings, Email Integration, Custom cloud storage, Calls and meetings, Messaging to Microsoft Teams & Skype for Business Admin Center, because they are taking Skype for Business Online into Microsoft Teams to provide single hub for teamwork.
Apps provide added functionality to your Teams. There two categories of Apps,
· Default Apps (mostly apps provided by Microsoft like – OneNote, Planner, SharePoint)
· External Apps (there are many external apps – here you can find some link)
The new admin center for Microsoft Teams & Skype for Business looks like as below
https://admin.teams.microsoft.com/dashboard and from this dashboard we can manage MS Team.
