Long gone are the days when different versions of the same documents were flying around on email. Set up Teams correctly and your colleagues can work together in real-time – with only one master copy of a document that is shared and accessed in real time between users. You can even revert back to previous versions of a document if somebody makes an error or heads in the wrong direction.
