Building a centralized work portal using Workhub

Workhub in Microsoft Teams is a new app that has been added to allow the creation of a centralized work portal for an organization. Here, users can access the latest news about their organization and collaborate efficiently by integrating this with other applications.

To add this app, you can follow the same procedure as the previous apps:

  1. Click on the ellipses () button, then More apps, search for Workhub, and click on the app icon:

    Once the app is added, configurations need to be made by your administrator.

    Your administrator can also make you an administrator to provide content. For instance, if you are part of the marketing team and can provide content on the latest marketing news for the company, you can be an administrator and start configuring the app so all users will be updated with the latest news.
