Microsoft Team Integration is a part of Office 365 that lets you schedule meetings, create channels, chat with teams, collaborate and work together, and work on different documents inside the app.  

You can add the Nimble Connector to any of your channels in Microsoft Teams to access your Nimble account and perform several activities using the product commands available in MS Teams.

For example, you can add comments using the Comment command,  tags on a card using the Tag command, move a card from one column to another column on Execution Board using the Move Card command and view the details of a workitem in a separate tab using the View in Nimble command.

These commands help you perform the operations directly from MS Teams without going to the application. So, it is quite advantageous for users who are using both MS Teams and the application app as they can now manage their application account and perform various workitem operations from MS Teams itself. It will not only save them time but also provide an easier and faster way to work with the product.
