Microsoft made a big hullabaloo about Teams, it’s Slack competitor, back in November, but so far it’s been limited to a fairly small batch of preview users. That changes next week.

On March 14, at 8:30AM PT, Microsoft will host an online event marking general availability for Office 365 users, where you can expect the company to show off how to use some of Teams’ best features, and perhaps even some new integrations we haven’t seen yet.

If you don’t recall Teams is ostensibly a similar platform to Slack, but naturally comes with tighter integrations regarding Office products and Skype. We went into detail about the product during its announcement in November, so for more information check out our post from then.  If you want to tune into the event next week, you can register here.
