Teams for telephone calls
Did you know that Teams has functionality for making telephone calls?
Our Nexus365 colleagues conducted a trial to see how Teams telephony might work with our existing telephone system, Chorus. On balance, the systems worked well together, although some features, such as hunt groups, couldn’t be extended between the two systems.
Adding telephony features to Teams comes with a cost for each user, but the needs of your unit may make this worthwhile. Local IT support staff colleagues interested in implementing telephony in Teams can find out more in the Training and workshops channel in the Nexus User Group Team.
