Microsoft Teams' user base is skyrocketing. Many companies around the world are switching to Microsoft Teams to enable their teams to collaborate and discuss ideas, projects, and more. Credit to Microsoft, new features are dropping for the app at a quick pace. Apart from updating video calling functions, Microsoft is also accommodating other tasks such as signing documents in the Teams app. That's quite useful to quickly sign and share documents.

Microsoft is leveraging the Microsoft 365 suite and OneDrive integration to share and send files among the channels.

Apart from sharing screens, you might want to quickly sign and share some documents too. You can download them, open a PDF editor or digital signature software, import the document, sign it, and then send it to Microsoft Teams. Or you can directly open the document in Microsoft Teams and sign it using the suggested methods below. No need of any additional software on the PC or Mac to sign documents.

To sign a document, select the signature function and place it in the documents. You can select from the built-in signatures, draw your signature using the red/black/green pen, or upload a signature from the PC. I found the built-in signatures to be more professional than SignEasy’s offerings.

After finishing the editing, hit Save and it will store that in Zoho’s library. You can access them from the Documents menu. Now, you can share the signed document with team members on the Teams channel.
