What is Microsoft Teams SMS?

Microsoft Teams SMS is an integration between Teams and a business text messaging platform. The integration allows the two platforms to share data and take action within one another so you can manage texts from the Teams channel of your choice.

How to Send Texts in Microsoft Teams

You have to integrate Microsoft Teams with a texting platform to start sending texts. Here’s a high-level overview of how to send texts through Microsoft Teams:

1. Choose your business text messaging platform.

Look for a business texting app that lets you manage texts and messages from popular apps (e.g., Facebook Messenger) via a Teams channel. Bonus points if it also gives you access to time-saving text templates.

2. Configure the messaging integration.

This setup process should take no more than an hour, and involves downloading your texting platform in Teams, confirming the integration in both platforms, and mapping incoming messages to the correct Teams channel.

3. Learn basic texting features.

Each texting platform handles Teams texting differently. For example, Heymarket lets you start new chats by @mentioning Heymarket. Test your integration right away to smooth the transition for your contacts. (They won’t notice the integration. They will receive texts as usual.)

4. Start sending and receiving texts.

Once you’ve learned the basics, you can start sending and replying to texts from within Microsoft Teams!
