How to enjoy hybrid work with Collaborative Apps in Microsoft Teams!

We are used to remote work scenarios due to the pandemic. But what will be after? Probably, not everybody will return to the office. This is the time of hybrid work and we need solutions to work together as a virtual team while having sub teams in the same location.
