Installing the Typeface app in Teams 

All Microsoft Teams for Business users can access Typeface from within Teams. Here’s how: 

  1. Go to “Apps” on Team's left-hand menu bar 

  1. Search for Typeface and click “Add” 

  1. Sign in (or sign up) from the Typeface bot 

If the app requires approval, contact your organization's security or IT team to enable the app. 

Using Typeface bot commands 

Once you’ve installed Typeface in Teams, you can begin interacting with the Typeface bot within the chat. This personal app experience lets you to brainstorm individually on ideas before sharing them with teammates.

Here are the basic commands you can use with the Typeface bot: 

  • Welcome: see an overview and sign in using your credentials 

  • Create: start creating content from a Typeface template 

  • Help: show a list of possible commands

Creating and sharing content 

Once you're ready to share your content, you can bring Typeface into your chats with teammates. Within your chat with that teammate, click on the three dots icon right below the message box. From there, select the Typeface icon to bring it into the chat. Typeface will then open within that chat, and you’ll all see the note “[Person] added Typeface here.”

Now you're able to share content ideas with your teammates. You can pull up an existing Typeface document or create from scratch using templates. When you’re ready to share the content into the chat, click on “Send.”

You can always edit the content after you send them into the chat. Just click the “Edit” button at the bottom of your message to re-open the document.

Repurposing content from teammates 

You can also use the Typeface app in Teams to repurpose content shared by teammates. Let’s say your teammate shared a URL (e.g. a webinar recording). Hover over their message and click on the three dots icon. 

Then choose “Summarize” and write how you’d like to repurpose that content into another format (e.g. a webinar recap blog). Then share it back to the team.

Refining content based on feedback 

When your teammates have reviewed your content, you can click the “Edit” button on your original message to incorporate their feedback. Make quick copyedits using Generative Refine or click into “Edit image” for a variety of image editing tools.   

Once you click “Share,” the updated content will be re-sent into the chat for the team to review.

Try it out 

Get started by installing the Typeface app using the instructions above. Then, try the following: 

  1. Add Typeface into a chat with your teammates 

  1. Open a template and generate content (see image and text guides for ideas) 

  1. Share the content into the chat, and refine based on your team’s feedback 


Where is the Typeface content that I create in Microsoft Teams stored? 

The content you generate using the Typeface app within Microsoft Teams is saved back into your Typeface account. You can access that content from your standard Typeface account. 

When do I use "Create an image" or "Create text" vs "Create from a template"?

The first two options are for quick creations. If you have a certain use case or channel in mind, Typeface's out-of-the-box templates are catered to your specific use cases.

How do I keep the Typeface bot visible in Microsoft Teams? 

By default, Teams will hide the Typeface bot from the sidebar. Right click on Typeface from the sidebar and click on “Pin” to keep it visible.
