CMVM How to Use Teams for Research Grant Submissions
This page contains two short guides to support setting up a new Team using Microsoft Office 365, and how new users might use a Team for collaborative working, as well as links to other material on Teams.
Setting up a new Team for a research grant application
How to set up a new Team using Microsoft Office 365, and invite people to collaborate, with the example of preparing for a research grant application.
This guide is based around an example where University staff collaborate, together with external collaborators, to prepare a research grant for submission.
The same principle can be applied to many other collaborative scenarios, such as organising a conference, co-writing books or chapters, and developing a course – such as planning the syllabus, developing talks and workshops then developing the workshop materials and content.
Using Teams via an invitation
How to start using Teams if you’ve received an invitation to join a Team.
This guide gets you started using Microsoft Office 365’s Teams. It’s based on the example where you’ve been invited to a Team, and gives suggestions for how Teams might help effective collaborative working.
Further material on the pilot phase of Teams, such as use for live class chat, online conferencing, remote audio-visual support for centrally managed teaching spaces and managing shift work is available from https://www.ed.ac.uk/information-services/computing/comms-and-collab/office365/teams
