Teams for personal and small business use keeps you and your family organized. Instead of using multiple applications to plan your family vacation, you can use Teams on your mobile device to plan and coordinate the vacation of your dreams with your friends and family members all in one place. Start with chat, share ideas, upload documents and receipts, and track your locations while you’re enroute.

How do I get started?

First, invite your friends and family to download Teams on their mobile device. Then, you can use one of the family or friends groups Teams made for you or create your own group to get them all together in the same (virtual) room.

Use the group chat to hash out the details of where you’re going and what you’re doing, then share travel itineraries and more. Did you find a cool website that has activities? Maybe a photo of a historic site you want to visit? Share them in the chat.

There’s lots of things to do to prepare. Want to start a recommended packing list for items everyone needs to bring?  While in chat on your mobile device, select the Plus button  The Plus button in Teams near the message box and select Tasks to create a packing list.  You can also create a list of things to do and places to see. Don’t worry about forgetting something; everyone can contribute to the shared list and it's all accessible from the Dashboard, so everyone’s voice is heard across the group.

Once you’ve got a plan, mark it on everyone’s calendar.

Are you staying at a hotel with a rewards program? Your family members may have a member ID number you can use on the reservation, or other information that you want to share securely with the group. You can share secure information with Safe on your mobile device.

When you’re on the vacation, make sure to capture all the memories right to the group using Camera on your mobile device so your whole family can relive the trip after you’re back in the group's Dashboard.
