Stack Overflow 

With the Stack Overflow app, developers can find and share information about Stack Overflow directly in Microsoft Teams. You can quickly find the answers to your questions and share them with your teammates exactly where you work with them most often. 

If you ask the channelbot a question, you will receive the answer directly in the chat. You can also share replies with others on your team within a channel or chat. 

The app increases team productivity and helps to onboard new employees faster by centralizing knowledge in a simple and user-friendly format. The information remains up-to-date and does not become obsolete as on wikis, Confluence or SharePoint and prevents knowledge from being lost in  
e-mails and chat apps, which thus also prevents the repetition of questions. It helps to prevent institutional knowledge loss by continuously and organically capturing proprietary knowledge.
