[How does this affect your organization]
These integrations enable users to seamlessly get information and move conversations to where they belong. Whether a customer request begins through email and needs to move to a project team in Teams, or a big announcement in a channel needs to be shared with a broader audience via email, you now have the tools to easily make it happen.
Teams missed activity emails now show the latest missed messages and provide the ability to respond directly from within Outlook, letting you respond to conversations that need your attention faster, even when focusing on your inbox.
Share to Teams is an Outlook add-in.
Share to Teams does not allow sharing IRM/DRM protected emails.
All content is fully e-discoverable and GDPR compliant.
Reply to missed activity emails uses Outlook Actionable Messages.
