I have a standalone network that is not connected to the internet. Can Teams be deployed on the systems in a way that they can collaborate on document editing using Teams, without being online? Or are all of the functions of Teams tied into the use of the internet?

    Hi JCain-1400,

    No, network is an essential factor for Microsoft Teams.

    The environment for Teams is online. All the services are online. If your organization has no network, Teams clients will have no access to these services.

    For more details about the network for Microsoft Teams, please refer to this article:
