As you begin to use Microsoft Teams, you are probably wondering if there are any tips and tricks out there that you don't already know about. After using Teams for over six months and reviewing its list of features, I have compiled my top five list of helpful tools and shortcuts I learned while using the platform. These features do not come naturally but can be powerful when used and can save you a lot of time and frustration.
Send Emails to a Channel From Anywhere
The ability to email a specific channel in Teams outside the application makes communicating a lot easier if you are juggling multiple things or don't have time to log into the application. Once configured, you can email directly to any channel via any email service. Here is a step-by-step guide to configuring this feature:
First, open up Microsoft Teams and click on the ellipsis next to the Channel name and choose "Get email address"
Then, copy the email address associated with the channel, as shown below.
After that, compose your email and send to the copied address.
Now, everyone will see that email in the specified Channel within Teams as a message.
