The necessary tool will be more accessible to Microsoft Teams users, who previously had to login for every single use.

Another Microsoft Teams update? You know it! The popular collaboration platform is adding even more functionality, now targeting a previously frustrating login process for a necessary online tool.

As the saying goes about weather in Chicago, if you don't like something about Microsoft Teams, just wait; it'll likely change in a few minutes. The platform is so regularly updated that we can barely keep up with it, from adding compatibility with Firefox to updating functionality for parent-teacher conferences.

Now, Microsoft Teams is adding a new feature that will make signing documents and forms infinitely easier for its many users.

Microsoft Teams Adds Better eSign Login Functionality

Spotted on the Microsoft 365 roadmap, a new update to Microsoft Teams will improve functionality when it comes to signing into e-sign providers, and the update will be a serious time saver for those that need to sign documents through the platform.

“Users will only have to sign into their e-sign provider account once every 30 days. They will also be able to logout of a particular e-sign provider account.”

That's right, no more logging in every single time you need to access an e-sign provider. Now, you can just sign in once per month to sign documents and forms quicker and more efficiently with Microsoft Teams.

Additionally, you'll be able to logout of a particular e-sign provider account to more easily log in to other accounts, a feature that was not previously available.

Should your business use Microsoft Teams?

If your business is looking to better provide collaboration tools for your remote workers, or just want to stay in better touch with your team in general, Microsoft Teams is a very solid option. It offers a free plan for starters, which is always attractive for business trying to stay under budget and provides lots of features like video conferencing and project management to keep your team on track.

We've done a lot of research on these types of platforms at Tech.co and compared Microsoft Teams to some of its competitors. Zoom and Google Meet are comparable options that can provide video conferencing, but Microsoft Teams does provide a more complete solution, depending on your needs.
