Microsoft Teams Integration

Microsoft Teams Integration

Microsoft Teams is the ultimate messaging app for your organization—a workspace for real-time collaboration and communication, meetings, file and app sharing, and even the occasional emoji! All in one place, all in the open, all accessible to everyone. With Bynder’s Microsoft (MS) Teams integration, you are able to instantly turn changes made within your Bynder DAM into messages in MS Teams so everyone will have the most up-to-date information. You’ll be able to work from both platforms and stay synchronized!
