Good news! As a Premium or Enterprise user, you can now integrate Teams to see and send chat messages to customers in a space. On top of that, we’ve added a function for adding and handling your Teams meetings directly on the meeting timeline.

That way, you will be able to see and respond to chat messages your customers send in a space – even when you’re not in SP_CE. As a bonus, you and your customers will get a great overview of all your meetings and interactions.

To get started, head to your settings page and go to your integrations. There, you’ll be able to connect your organization’s Teams account. Which will mean that every new space that’s created in your SP_CE organization will get a corresponding channel in the user’s Teams app.

Note: To connect Teams to SP_CE the first time, you need to be the Global Administrator of your Teams account.

Chat functionallity

Chat with Teams in your spaces

If a SP_CE user in your organization has accepted the Teams connection, they will now find that a Teams channel is automatically created for each new space they create. With that, no Teams channel will be created for spaces created before the connection was made.

With the connection set up, the user doesn’t have to be in a specific space to communicate with different stakeholders. This, since all chat interactions can be managed directly in Teams. Where messeages and threads are synchronized in real time.

Plan your Teams meetings in the space timeline

Set your Teams meetings in the space agenda

On top of the chat functionality, you’ll be able to schedule your Teams meetings directly on the meeting timeline in any given space. Or, if you installed our Outlook app, you can book Teams meetings associated with a specific space directly from your own calendar. And if you recorded the meeting, your will be able to watch the recording with a click on the play button on the timeline.

With this, both you and your customers will have a nice overview of the process, and can always head to the meeting timeline in your space to see what meetings have been held so far.
