Gimmal LLC, a Houston-based provider of information governance and compliance software, has just announced the release of Drop Zones for Microsoft Teams. With this solution, Microsoft Teams users have the ability to automatically apply metadata and properly store documents in SharePoint right from the Teams interface.

With a simple drag and drop method, users can drop documents in a designated zone on Microsoft Teams to ease the burden of manual tagging and ensure documents are managed according to policies. While Drop Zones are not a new capability for the 18-year-old information governance company, the Teams integration has been made available to accommodate many newly dispersed workforces who are utilizing Teams for collaboration.
