Teams is a workspace that brings people across UCLA Health, or within your department, together to communicate and collaborate. Teams provides one-on-one or group chats, live access of shared Office 365 files, the ability to host private and channel meetings, and review of chat history.
A team is a group of people you've invited to collaborate with. Teams are made up of channels, which are the conversations you have with your teammates. Each channel can be dedicated to a specific topic, department, or project.
Chat is at the center of everything you do in Microsoft Teams. From individual chats with just one other person, chats with yourself, to group chats and conversations in channels—chat has you covered.
Meetings are an essential place where work happens in Microsoft Teams. Meetings in Teams include audio, video, and screen sharing. They're one of the key ways to collaborate in Teams.
Use Microsoft SharePoint on Teams

Survey/poll your teammates by using Microsoft Forms
