Getting better but still no Slack

Cheap Team Collaboration if you use Office 365 already

Pros
Collaboration between teams is possible. The integrations with office 365 apps is helpful. The fact that is it included with an office 365 license for free is it's biggest selling point. They are attempting to merge Teams and Skype for Business/Lync now so it's future is still in the works. Video meeting features are nice.

Cons
No Linux support outside of the web app, which does not support browser notifications or notification sounds. Not even close to slack in the number of integrations with other products. Slack has a better conversation flow than Teams does. Conversation threads in conversation threads can get a little confusing at times.

Best Team Collaboration software for MS Office suite users

Used occasionally for less than 6 months
Reviewed 2020-09-28
Review Source: Capterra

It is recommended mostly for large-scale corporations and companies. For startups and small business, it is much expensive. For medium level organizations, it is the best option if they are already using Microsoft ecosystem of MS Office suite software. So it integrates well with Microsoft 365 Apps like OneDrive. It is suitable for teams working together on a project to share files and chat with each other. Email management becomes much easier.

Pros
The most important benefit for us is that it integrates well in a Microsoft software ecosystem. Meeting and video conference quality is very good. Digital communication is manged effectively by this software. Teams can work on their respective project with a team leader using its capabilities by sharing resources and persistently communicating the progress of the project. All the necessary video conferencing features are available like captions, background blur, live chat, sharing, and recording screen. It also supports remote collaboration features. It is reliable to use for teams and never faced any major issue using it on Mobile App. Web App and Desktop Application.

Cons
Its cost is not affordable for startups and small businesses. Another thing is that the user interface and settings need a lot of time to learn. It needs to be improved and should be user friendly for new users to configure it easily. Customer support depends upon the pricing plan you select. But there are rarely any major technical issues faced using this software.

I think that is the best option for business communication in team, especially for companies which work remotely. This software is easy to use and has simple options for maintaining communication in the business. I prefer use the desktop version.

Pros
I like the most that software because it is very easy to use. We easy maintain communication with clients from abroad. There are a lot of options for business and for relaxed communication. Price is very good.

Cons
Online version is very useless. Maintenance is not very regular and support is very low quality.

It was a good experience as the tool enbales you to explore and then present in the most creative way.

Pros
The software is dynamic and user-friendly. The interface allows you to smoothly transition from one tab to another. Users can set up impromptu meetings and presentations. It is also fun with its advanced features like GIF creation, Inserting images, etc.

Cons
The value for money can be comparatively low when you have multiple platforms to interact within a system.

Microsoft Teams is an all-in-one collaboration platform. I recommend its use

Review Source: Capterra

We use Microsoft Teams as an internal communication platform. We use it in the office or at home to connect remotely and catch up on the various tasks. Also, it is an excellent file sharing tool. Currently we use it daily due to the emergency caused by the Covid-19 that forced us to work remotely.

Pros
I like Microsoft Teams because it allows both group and individual chats. The image and audio quality in video conferences is exceptional. Another feature I like is that it supports file transfers, which are normally very fast. Also, it has a really low price.

Cons
The only thing I do not like is that the screen sharing function sometimes has many interruptions. You have to have a really fast internet connection for it to work properly.

I really enjoy the features in Teams, you can do video chat and see everyone, coordinate with people and be able to send files to everyone in the chat.

Cons
I would say the only thing killing this app is the price, yes there is a "free" version but comes barebones with the premium version costing a significant amount.

It was really easy to learn how to use and do a test roll out. I managed to achieve that all within a day.

Pros
Its like slack or discord. But for a company. You can really get into it and do some really complex projects, that is if you can convince your users its worth it.

Cons
Its not cheap and it comes bundled with the rest of 365. If you have users on O Essentials or Premium then I would 100% recommend the time investment

Great tool overall. Easy to keep all communication and paper trails organized,.

Pros
Very cheap and offers an interface that is much more organized than Skype. Looks like Microsoft learned from those early mistakes to build a program that offers great video and audio along with very nice chat features.

Cons
It's still growing, but it is behind Slack in terms of integrations so far. Hopefully it can catch up in that department.

Microsoft Teams is a capable collaboration product and shows future promise.

Pros
Video conferencing options work very well, with nice features like together mode. Integration with other 365 suite members is well done, especially OneDrive integration. Pricing is affordable and free version works well as a starter pack. There are many plugins available for Teams which provided a better experience overall.

Cons
UI and UX is a bit lacking, does not have the same snappiness as competing products. Mobile app is buggy and tends to lag. I only use Teams when dealing with other partners that require it.

In Conclusion, Microsoft Teams is an impressive option that I rely on due to its capabilities as well as the peace of mind its security provides especially with the price tag it comes with. I have used other competitors' software, they are nice yet Teams win.

Pros
I like the great number of functionalities in the software The amount of security built into the software is relieving The price is very affordable The integration with other Microsoft 365 apps is impressive especially the one sing in, the Drive capacity, the ability to use the rest of the apps from within are commendable

Cons
The user interface is catchy yet can be reorganized for abetter look and access to different options, as in comparison with other competitors using Teams the first time can be slightly intimidating. The ability to search for other people can be modified to make it easier.

Pros
This will slot in nicely into your compliance framework for your average Microsoft shop. It also benefits from Microsoft having aggressive pricing, at least early on. This has many similar features to Slack and if you cannot use Slack for compliance reasons or cost, this will fill that void.

Cons
Let's be honest with what this is though, a Slack me too clone. There isn't a lot of originality to it and it feels like a pale competitor. Deeper integration into Microsofts own product stack would be really helpful. It seems like a product without a purpose beyond filling a market space.

Teams is a great tool to keep me connected and get answers quickly from my distributed product teams

Pros
Microsoft Teams support staff are excellent - they are attentive to any problems when chatting or calling and even proactively think of other areas where I may have questions or snares. The product itself has very innovative video chatting features that really set itself apart; including the ability to quickly start a call from the chat box which saves time and headache. The addition of gifs and other meme pictures are a nice touch, even though i seldom use them in professional settings. I could see them used more in other technology companies with different cultures.

Cons
Micseosoft teams is part of the office 365 environment, and should be noted that the cost can be slightly prohibitive if you are not a medium to large size corporation. Athough, the product is worth the price in my opinion.

Overall, as I stated I think this program out paces other video, live chat programs.

Pros
You can see who is available, rather than calling on the phone to find out that they are not available. Chats are saved. Easy to create specific groups. Love the easy video meeting, screen sharing with no time limits!

Cons
So far, I can find no cons with the program. Since I am not an admin, I have no idea what the program costs per month, but I would say it would be cheaper than Zoom or other video conferencing programs.
