Pushing activity from your RealtimeBoard boards to Microsoft Teams allows everyone on your team to be aware of new comments and mentions, any projects or team activities. This ensures that your entire team is on the same page and helps you keep track of RealtimeBoard activities in Microsoft Teams.

You can keep track of the following events:
- invitees sign up
