New Office 365 Tools Available to Kent State Faculty and Staff

The Division of Information Technology recently expanded the university’s Microsoft agreement to include additional productivity and collaboration tools. Faculty and staff have access to Teams, Planner, OneDrive and other convenient collaborative tools integrated with Office 365.

Teams can make your workplace collaboration much easier; it allows you to hold individual and group chat conversations, share Microsoft Office documents, utilize planning tools and establish video calls and meetings – all within a single online workspace.

From Teams, you can access Planner, which gives you a visual way to plan, organize and assign tasks, including due dates and status updates. Teams also ties together other helpful tools like OneDrive for easy file storage and sharing, and OneNote for documentation and note-taking.

For more information on how Teams can benefit you, please visit the university’s O365 informational web page.

If the Teams desktop app is not already installed on your computer, talk to your local support technician.
