The university will be transitioning to Microsoft Teams Calling. It is a feature-rich calling service with the ability to call anywhere you have internet connectivity.

This will create an integrated workplace bringing calling, messaging, meetings, file sharing, voicemail, and essential tools together in one place through the Microsoft Teams desktop and mobile applications.

The Benefits of Using Microsoft Teams

  • Create chat groups, teams, or channels to enable focused collaboration
  • Access to your phone from anywhere with the ability to make and receive calls from existing desk phones, your computer, or a cell phone using the Microsoft Team mobile app.
  • Calls are a quick way to connect in Teams. You can have one-on-one calls or calls with several people. You can set them up ahead of time like a meeting, or you can start them on the fly.
  • No longer bound to a physical device to manage your phone and calls
