Collaborating with teammates is easier when in person, but digital workplaces make it a little tricky. In school, I would often send notes, ideas etc. through emails chats etc. to teammates, which eventually got lost amongst others. Consolidating all the data at one place would make our heads spin, especially when we had an approaching deadline.
Although we have a lot of online platforms, applications and other option which helps us collaborate with our team, Microsoft’s Loop is levelling up the game. Wondering how? Here you have answers to all your questions.
Loop is a Microsoft application which helps you integrate portable and collaborative elements with a canvas overview within your Office 365 environment.
You can add and create files with your team on real time basis. You can tag others and see who made the changes. Now you can consolidate all your important notes and data and share with your team hassle free. You can use it a s project management tool or simply to bring all the ideas at one place.

It is super easy. Just open the chat with the desired members of team, then go to the tool bar and choose the Loop icon (third from the left). You can choose the components from the list.
Loop has three major yet crucial elements namely
Loop has several components like tables, paragraphs, lists etc. which you can integrate into Microsoft ecosystem. Loop components makes it easier to share and collaborate for any project.
Pages is the canvas overview where you can see all your components added. You can customise its size. It helps you keep track of the projects and enables team to introduce changes to the components.
