Microsoft Teams allows you to share files and folders, and collaborate on files with your colleagues. You can view and edit Word, Excel, and PowerPoint document using the Office applications available within Teams. To add a file:

  1. When you are logged in to Teams, you will find the Files area in the tabs across the top of the Teams site.

  2. Add files or folders by dragging them into the Files window from your desktop or shared drives.

When documents are in the Files area, they are available to everyone with access to the team:

  • Files such as PDFs can be viewed by everyone 
  • Office documents can be updated by everyone in the team even at the same time, for example adding information to different cells in the same Excel document. Each user’s action is identified by their initials
