Since the service's inception, Microsoft's 'chat-based workspace' has gotten a number of different integrations with both first and third-party solutions. This time however it's the turn of the latter, as Evernote is finally being integrated.
Beyond the standard announcement of this new capability, the relevant post also includes a small Q&A section related to the problems this collaboration enhancer looks to solve. In the words of Microsoft's Mansoor Malik - Principal Product Manager for Teams -, "We’re building a product for collaboration, so we have to be collaborative." In consequence, you'll be able to contextually share, pin, edit or search your Evernote content within a Microsoft Teams channel.
The two firms got the ball rolling on this partnership in part due to folks using Evernote as essentially "their second brain", says Evernote's Leo Gong. As a result, meeting notes and other pertinent info is stored in a notebook that - until now - had to be accessed separately from the communication hub. This integration reinforces what both Gong and Malik agree should be the goal of such things: the reduction of friction between the user and his or her data, both in terms of access and sharing.
Evernote for Teams is available now in Microsoft's AppSource directory.
