Bringing planning, collaboration, and productivity all to one place!

What do you like best?

I LOVE being able to see EVERYTHING in one place, my chats, my task boards, my surveys, my notes, emails, everything. It is so easy to share across this platform, I feel like my collaboration has gone up exponentially since we have started using Teams.

What do you dislike?

Meetings through teams are shaky sometimes, the software behind it is not as good as a GTM or Skype, which if you are on Office365 Skype and Teams are both included, so I'd suggest just using Skype.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Teams is a very easy to use collaboration tool. It integrates all other Microsoft products and some others, like Asana, survey monkey, etc. I highly recommend trying it, especially if you are investing currently in a "chat" software, it has so many other features outside of just chatting.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Collaboration is the main business problem, and it has helped dramatically. I am able to share documents, emails, calendars, task board, etc. I also manage most of my projects through Teams, having members of the project make notes on the team page, store documents here and discuss next steps. All without having a physical meeting, comment on your free time.

Skype and Outlookkiller...for free

What do you like best?

- If you are already an Office365 User, it is for free

- full integration with other Microsoft services

- easy to use

- full skype functions integrated

What do you dislike?

- no real guest access (you need a microsoft account)

- html embeeding only with SSL

Recommendations to others considering the product

Microsoft Teams is a new and fresh software, which will be getting better over time. If you are already using a collaboration tool, compare the features. If Teams doesnt meet your requierements, just check back in after some time (Teams gets new features every month).

If you are already a Office365 User and don't have any collaboration tool yet, get it! Full Sharepoint, PowerApps, Flow and PowerBi (and many more) integration! You don't have to switch between 5+ different software / apps anymore. Everything at one place :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

- communication and collaboration in one place and team specific, everybody gets the same informations

- project files are always "up-to-date" for everyone, no mail attachments anymore

What Team Collaboration solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Good Inter communication product

What do you like best?

This tool helps to collaborate with our colleagues in need of work and also personally. Sharing the documents and files from the cloud storage can be done from the same place. The most i like in this chat history can be backed up in our cloud store and can be taken when we needed which is more convenient, when we are working from home or at any other place.

What do you dislike?

To be frank, Nothing i can found bad about this tool anyway.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are very un-easy to be mingled with your colleagues just get in touch with this product and it will take you easier with all the employees. The problems or doubts can be cleared with other teams can be solved instantly with no additional time. Try this and stay in this.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Communications can be done with offshore peoples and the feedback can be shared in easier way, which is more helpful in solving the problems and clearing about the doubts about the products. Out work data can be stored on your cloud and it can used at any place such as when you go to meetings etc..

Not up to par with Slaack

What do you like best?

This is a vast improvement over Skype for Business. Private "one-on-one" and "group" chats are still available, but have been integrated with Team and channel chats that are visible across organizations and departments. Most recently, Microsoft has integrated its suite as well as several other apps, including Power BI, various "chat with customer" options, and other data analytics options that have made this software invaluable for any organization using the Microsoft Suite. Communication with this app vastly out performs Skype.

What do you dislike?

The program itself is very clunky, often causing lag even when you're running an OS with a ton of memory, RAM, and an up-to-date processor. This can be fatal. It's also lacking the crisp simplicity of Slaack but is well on its way. It also lacks the ability to have different levels of management within a team - we often need a team "owner," regular "members" or contributors, but also need a mid-level for a supervisory sort of role.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Rather than having Skype for Business, Yammer, and several other software options to ensure all types of communication in your business are taken care of, try this. It's worth it and would work for all business sizes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We are an on-demand business that functions well when communication across departments and across locations is seamless. Using email and Skype for Business weren't cutting it for us. We jumped on board with MS Teams in its Beta stages and have never looked back. We cannot imagine communicating the valuable, ever-changing, ever-demanding information of our business in any other way.

Getting to Know My "Teams"

What do you like best?

The multiple project management and communication is amazing. Additionally, persisted conversations and files make it easy to reference back and onboard a team member into an existing project.

What do you dislike?

Only been using it for a little while but it seems that the integration across Microsoft's other apps and sites can be overwhelming. Teams is supported by a back-end SharePoint site so a not-so-savvy tech user could get confused on how file storage and access actually works.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try it out and see if you really like it first. It takes a bit to get used to but a solid trial period will give you a lot of insight. Also try to find a webinar or watch YouTube videos on using Teams. It really helps streamline the user experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Again, keeping progress on multiple at each person's fingertips is great. They even have mobile app which works great.

Promising, but not yet ready for prime-time.

What do you like best?

I appreciate the communication functionality. Teams does have enhanced conversation capabilities, compared with Skype for Business. It's nice to have threaded conversations with work colleagues and to be able to look back at those conversations. As a meeting platform, it allows for good screen sharing and video capabilities.

What do you dislike?

Teams has the potential to be excellent, but it's not there yet. At this point it's kind of like a designer impostor Slack. There are definitely some little user interface annoyances that haven't been adequately addressed. Teams aims to be a one-stop shop for team collaboration, but it has trouble displaying some non-Microsoft websites - for example, Google Sites content. Although I understand Microsoft's desire to keep users in Teams to view content as much as possible, I would greatly prefer the option to open web content in the machine's default browser. Teams is also pretty scant on customization options and settings. Some basic functionalities like pinned posts are missing. Creating and joining public teams within the organization is sometimes confusing and unreliable, although adding team members manually seems to work fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't expect a polished product at this point. There are some aspects of the user experience that feel much more like a beta test than a mature end-user product.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Teams is basically about team communication. It does well at that, as long as the shared documents for collaboration are Microsoft-based. It works decently as a forum and instant messenger platform. It's also a good virtual meeting solution. I anticipate that when the software matures and our entire organization is using it, Teams will be a good collaboration tool.
