Microsoft Teams

What is Microsoft Teams ?

Microsoft Teams is an entirely new experience that brings together people, conversations and content—along with the tools that teams need—so they can easily collaborate to achieve more. It’s naturally integrated with the familiar Office applications and is built from the ground up on the Microsoft Office 365 global, secure cloud.

OneDrive for Business

What is OneDrive for Business?

OneDrive for Business is cloud based storage system, hosted in Microsoft's data centers, which can be accessed from any internet-connected device. By default, each DOM/EPI user is allocated 5TB of storage and can be increased to up to 10TB of storage space under our Microsoft licensing agreement. OneDrive is very similar to your Home (H:/) drive, tied to your account directly. 

Office 365 Groups

What are Office 365 groups?

Office 365 Groups is a service developed with collaboration in mind.  Office 365 Groups are a shared workspace for email, conversations, files, and events where group members can communicate and collaborate.  For example, you can create a group for your team and invite other users to join the group, and then share documents, conversations, meeting notes, calendars, and OneNote information related to that specific group.  It works with the Office 365 tools you use already so you can collaborate with your teammates when writing documents, creating spreadsheets, working on project plans, scheduling meetings, or sending email.

Sharing Guidance

When sharing documents from OneDrive for Business or Office 365 Groups it is important to follow the guidelines provided by the ISO office.
