This article explains about Microsoft Loop, how it works, and its advantages
What is MS Loop?
Microsoft Loop is a transformative co-creation experience that brings together teams, content and tasks across your tools and devices. Loop combines a powerful and flexible canvas with portable components that move freely and stay in sync across applications — enabling teams to think, plan, and create together.
How do I use Loop components in other apps?
Loop components are currently supported in Teams, Outlook, Word for the web, and Whiteboard. Choose one of the links below to learn more:
1. Microsoft Teams
First things to know about Loop components in Microsoft Teams:
1) Loop components are built for collaboration:
When you send a Loop component, everyone in your chat can edit it inline—and see changes instantly. That means you can collaborate right inside a chat message
2) They’re saved automatically
3) The possibilities for collaboration are endless
Below are five common uses for Loop components:
- Compiling data
- Managing projects
- Focusing a discussion
4) Components are easily shared and always reflect the latest changes
5) More is coming from Microsoft Loop:
Loop components launched first in Teams chat, but they’ll be coming to Teams channels and to other M365 apps in the future.
Loop components are portable, editable pieces of content that stay in sync across all the places they are shared. You can embed them in any Outlook item (email or calendar event) just as you can also do in Teams chats. Streamlining the collaboration workflow, Loop components empower your team to ideate, plan, and create together.
3. Word for the web:
Loop components are live, interactive, collaborative objects that you can embed in Teams chats and emails – and now also in Word for the web – as a convenient way to ideate, create, and plan together
You can live copy/paste existing Loop components from other M365 applications onto a whiteboard and edit them inline with changes saved across instances in real-time.
