Since Office 365 is cloud-based, Daria completes her adoption strategy PowerPoint presentation that she worked on yesterday and saves it to the channel in Teams. She @mentions her coworker Mark (who works in another region) so he can add his comments.

Because Mark is on the go, he opens the document in Teams mobile app and reviews the first draft of the presentation. He adds comments in the presentation that need to be shared with Daria’s colleague in the afternoon.

Daria and Mark co-edit the presentation in real time. They easily work on one single version of the presentation together while changes are saved automatically! They then use Teams Meet Now to discuss next steps.
