Additional Office 365 tools

This page introduces other tools and features you will see as part of Office 365.


Office 365 Teams are chat based workspaces which allow you to collaborate with colleagues on meetings, notes and attachments. You can be a member of multiple teams, and create channels within teams to allow you to separate streams of conversation from each other. You can record meetings and publish directly into MS Stream video portal.

You can even keep track of information kept in project management systems, such as Trello, Hootsuite and GitHub.

For more information on how we are implementing MS Teams at the University log into the Office 365 site.


Planner is an Office 365 tool that allows you to schedule and assign work and tasks to group members, and track progress to completion. It also integrates with other Office 365 apps like OneNote, Outlook and SharePoint.


Yammer is a private social network that helps you get connected to other members of the University and share information across groups. Only University co-workers can join, so your communications on Yammer are secure and visible only to people within our organisation. Yammer gives you the opportunity to join groups or topics relevant to your job or interests and activities. You can also follow co-workers and teams, and get their updates delivered right to your feed in real time.
