Creating a new team

Microsoft Teams is your one-stop-shop for accessing all your Microsoft 365 applications. Teams enables collaboration; team members achieve more together when all their chats, meetings, files, and apps reside in a single workspace. Creating a team does a lot in the background. It provisions a SharePoint site for you, along with a Microsoft 365 group for the team. Teams lets you connect with other services within Microsoft 365, as well as with third-party apps (via connectors).
