If your organization is on board with Microsoft Teams, there are several ways to make the most of the collaboration service. We've already highlighted some tips and tricks for teams, but did you know that you can also add some of your favorite apps like "tabs" to teams?

If your administrator has enabled it, you can do so by pressing the "+" Button button at the top of any Teams channel, and then choosing or searching for an application. These are our favorite Teams applications and how they can help you increase your productivity.


We've already covered how you can add YouTube to Microsoft Teams, but this is still one of our favorite applications for the collaboration service. Once added, the YouTube application will allow you to share links to playlists, channels, without having to abandon the Microsoft Teams experience. You can also search for videos with the integrated search bar, paste links or even post a video on top of any channel in Teams. This will save you time by having to open a web browser and search YouTube manually.

Microsoft teams can be integrated with Microsoft's own service, Planner, but Microsoft also offers Trello as an Application on computers. When added to Teams, you can see all your boards directly from Teams, without having to go to a web browser. You can also create new cards, monitor activities on the board, as well as move cards. That is essentially all that is already included in the Trello experience, and it is really convenient to have everything within the equipment, without having to leave the application. You can keep up with all your workflows at a quick glance and reduce clutter.

If you are looking for information at a quick glance, Wikipedia is usually the place to go. While you can usually navigate to a new tab in your web browser to do so, the Wikipedia application in Teams allows you to skip that trip. You can take advantage of the power of Wikipedia directly from Teams. That includes searching for articles and sharing with coworkers.

Using Wikipedia on computers is a bit different from YouTube or Trello. You must first ask your administrator to navigate here and then add the application to Teams. Once this is done, you can call Wikipedia searches from the search bar in Teams within any channel. Simply type @Wikipedia search to invoke the application and then enter your search term.


Microsoft Flow

Previously we explained how you can use Microsoft Flow to automate workflows, but there is also a Flow application in Microsoft Teams. Once added to Teams, you can connect many business tasks and save your team time. You can automate many tasks such as alerts, notifications or launch bots within Teams. You can also configure Flow to display Tweets and other information from other Microsoft services directly within Teams channels.
