Some points about creating Teams

  • You should consider creating a Team when you have a long-term group project/similar that can be clearly defined from other projects
  • Creating a Team also creates a SharePoint site for files that can be accessed and edited by all the people in the group at the same time
  • We highly recommend that if you have an existing team or team that serves a similar purpose to stick with it to avoid the clutter of many Teams and to leave student-created teams when you are finished with them.
