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.

Good enough, but not Great

Reviewed 6 months ago

Good enough, but not great, especially if you have used other communicators. UX is light years behind the competition. The only 2 reasons to use MS Teams are pricing (included in MS Office), and the integration with other MS Office products.

Pros

Very good integration with Outlook and MS Calendar. Good switching between desktop and mobile during a meeting. Useful notifications / reminders when a meeting starts.

Cons

Alwful UI and UX, unintuitive UI, non-productiv shortcuts, not very configurable, not good default settings. Linux app is not on par. Search functionality is not very good. Has bugs - sometimes loses message history, not synchronizing b/n desktop and mobile apps, not showing the correct status, not sending notifications on time, etc. Missing some important functionality - like push to talk during a meeting, or good annotations. Some functionalities are not developed properly - for example integration with MS Forms is pretty bad. Comes short when compared to the competition like Slack.

Working from home just got a whole lot easier throughout 2021

Reviewed 6 months ago

Microsoft Teams, Wow Wow Wow! Well long gone are the days of spending 20 to 30 mins trying to get all my learners to battle through Cisco WebEx's complex dial in process....OMG the nightmares so many of us had with that is just beyond belief. Teams has been a lifesaver, timesaver, stress reducer in a time of high anxiety. It's been a brilliant investment by our workplace. We have our working meetings so easy to set up and in contrast to other softwares, there is no time limit. We can pass files back and forth, open files simultaneously to work collaboratively. It's saving huge amounts of time, improved efficiency and hence increased productivity. It has been a brilliant promoter of paper free working, less emails, and more in the moment work.

Pros

The video conferencing, screen sharing and being able to invite a limitless number of colleagues to the meeting with such ease has to be one of it's top strengths. Live transcription on the go during meetings Ability to see our colleagues in the display individually or a together mode on the seats; it's an extraordinary touch. Absolutely love how you're able to change backgrounds throughout the meeting during conferencing Very easy to set up and in contrast to other softwares, there is no time limit. The ability to pass files & documents back and forth and to open files simultaneously to work collaboratively. It's saving us huge amounts of time, improved efficiency and hence increased productivity. Breakout rooms are a breeze to set up and makes life so much easier.

Cons

Low bandwidth can be an issue, would have to switch the cameras off to compensate. Have to mute chats to stop notifications constantly popping up in the bottom right hand corner - can be very distracting during sessions. The whiteboards need better integration, e.g. being able to prepare prior to session, save after completion of sessions etc.

Pros

Starts with Windows, runs on a lot devices, screen sharing with a sound, various chatting features, ability to share links, files, take over the participants screens, record a meeting. Chat history is also a very useful feature. Easier to be set then Webex., outsiders can be called to the meetings quickly.

Cons

Sometimes loads for a time, the sw. takes a lot of space, so consume a big memory portion, searching for a text in the chat history may take time. When you move from one network to another, mostly jumping between VPN, it tends to lose the connection even when you got back to your "home" network and shows you offline, does not send/receive messages.

Microsoft Teams, a value for money group platform

Reviewed 9 months ago

I started using Microsoft Teams almost 2 years ago, since every university started teaching classes online. Our university provided us and our teachers with free Microsoft Teams accounts, so that we can use its features to their full capacity. For almost all of the classes it has worked amazingly, except for those that have more than 300 attendees. Those meetings are not supported by Microsoft Teams and have to be hosted on a different platform. However, I find Microsoft Teams very user-friendly, since you can access classes materials, announcements, posts etc very easily and get personal notifications.

Pros

Having used Microsoft Teams for almost 2 years, I really enjoy its interface. It has a very user-friendly layout and everyone finds it easy to use it, even on their first time! It is a very organized way of group sharing and communicating, since you can keep shared files on specific folders on each group channel, you can have both one-on-one and group meetings, share your screen and request control on someone's shared screen. It has a lot of fancy backgrounds for the videocalls and offers a lot of useful tools for the host of the meeting. Finally, I really like the threads under channel posts, so you can have a discussion under a specific topic, as a comment of the initial post, without having to scroll for ages on the channel.

Cons

I really like Microsoft Teams and find it very easy to use, but unfortunately, if you want to explore all its features you have to be willing to pay an average fee for each user. However, you can still use the free product, but with some limitations, like the maximum meeting time at 1 hour, or the maximum participants number at 100. However, even when paying the full price, Microsoft Teams participants capacity is at 300, so webinars with larger crowds than that have to find a different venue.

Improve inner company communication and focus email on external communications

Reviewed 9 months ago

Previous to using Teams most of our inner company communication was done via email, which lead to the every user have large mailbox sizes. It was this abundance of inner company emails, a lot of times with files attached, that lead to the death of our old Exchange email server and the migration to Exchange 365. Since Teams was included with our Office 365 subscription I made a push to get people to...

Pros

The chat feature is a excellent alternative to using email for inner company communication. Text conversations are much more readable than long email chains, and the option to have voice, video, screen sharing and file sharing all in one place has made inner company communication much easier.

Cons

The 'Teams' themselves are not as intuitive as they could be and it has taken longer to get our employees to buy into them as a means of collaboration and communication compared to chat. Looking through old conversations is cumbersome and finding old discussion topics is not as ease as email. While a word search is available it only will display a single message when a result is click without the additional context of surrounding messages. More options for viewing a searching old conversations would be extremely useful. The desktop Teams app uses a lot of RAM, older computers with less than 16GB might struggle to run it and other programs, which defeats the purpose of the application if it is not available all the time.

Pros

A ubiquitous and cheap Unified Communications that is deeply integrated into the Office 365 ecosystem. Although a Microsoft product is available on both Windows and Mac and iOS and Android. The app can be even be accessed via web browser for Linux OS's.

Cons

The Teams app can be intimidating when first opened and can take a little while to learn how to navigate and find the chats or groups you are looking for. Depending on the size of your organisation there can be a lot of noise if you turn the alerting on.

Efficient and Flexible Platform for Video Conferencing, File Storage, and Application Integration.

Reviewed 10 months ago

Because Microsoft Teams is more straightforward and easy to use than other video conferencing solutions, I suggest that everyone use Microsoft Teams. The Microsoft Planner App is accessible in Microsoft Teams for collaboration. The number of email threads is being decreased. Integration with Microsoft's Office productivity suite is provided. Any gadget may be used to make phone calls (as well as other tasks). In order to operate effectively, teams must plan meetings (with Ease) Your Activity Feed has been updated with the latest information.

Pros

It is the integration of Microsoft 365 collaboration tools and services, such as SharePoint, that has the greatest impact on the overall value of the Microsoft Teams application. Teams allow you to make the most of the features of a variety of applications, like Outlook, Planner, and SharePoint by using them from inside the app's user interface (UI) without leaving the app.Teams has been designed to be very user-friendly by Microsoft. You have a discussion tool that combines all of the other apps, as well as the chat tool, all in one place to make communication easier. The ability to make a video or audio call is available, files may be worked on without having to leave the chat room, and a meeting or assignment can be shared with other individuals while being inside the channel.

Cons

Surprisingly, customers of Microsoft Teams have reported that other Microsoft products are the most major stumbling barrier. Many people are still confused as to which tool to use in which situation, despite the fact that there are an excess of options accessible. When it comes to Microsoft goods, it is the company's duty to educate its customers about them.

Microsoft Teams provides a 360 virtual hub for almost any form of online/remote collaboration

Reviewed 10 months ago

We used Microsoft Teams as the virtual collaboration software to access an entire school's (bootcamp) curriculum and activities, including: - Attending live class session - Accessing our curriculum outline - Accessing course materials - Submitting assignments - Collaboration with facilitators and schoolmates Also, at work, we use it for small Team meetings with our team members in a different location in the office building and also team members in other countries. We occasional host organizational wide live events for very important announcements to our global team of 10,000+ employees.

Pros

I like the ease with which I could access all the resources needed for participating in various activities in our Bootcamp course. From live and recorded video classes, to uploaded learning materials, team discussions and live chats with text formating and urgency markers which beep an alert to get the receivers attention, to file uploads and assignment submissions, all were made easy on teams for web, desktop, and mobile. I also particulary liked using the dark mode version and found the many plugins available such as Microsoft apps and other third party apps very useful to make work easy. What I particularly like is that Teams cost me less in internet bills compared to other video calling software and I could turn on notifications to alert me of urgent updates.

Cons

There was one time I encountered a challenge with logging into the app. But I found a fix when I searched online.

Teams is ever-evolving and always improving the way we communicate with each other. Some key features that I like are the ability to call-in with a telephone on a conference call. Another is being able to invite guests to connect and message the organization. The Cloud flare DNS setup wizard is great too. Makes for easy migrations.

Excellent collaboration tool for teams

Reviewed a year ago

Since we are already using Microsoft office 365, it was an easier jump for us to adopt and onboard Microsoft teams.Being satisfied with the tool, it also helped to get cost savings and tight integration with the Microsoft ecosystem we have already adopted. I would prefer Teams any day over the alternatives purely for the peace of mind since it is more secure.

Pros

Microsoft teams provides all the functionalities like chat, message, call, audio/video meetings to enable collaboration among geo-distributed teams. We already had Microsoft business 365 setup, hence getting Teams was a breeze. We actually moved away from Skype for Business and adopted Teams for entire enterprise. It integrates well with our Microsoft ecosystem like Outlook, Azure DevOps, etc. Also it is very secured as compared to other alternatives in the market.

Cons

Microsoft teams UI seems outdated, it will be perfect to have a lightweight UI for desktop as well as mobile app for faster startup times for meetings. Also it will be great to have a centralized UI for all internal and external team org users

Teams has kept our team functioning at the same productivity while working remotely

Reviewed 2 years ago

We were separated because of the pandemic stay-at-home orders, but quickly came back together through Microsoft teams.

Pros

*Super easy to figure out how to use - very intuitive, even for low-tech users. *Allows people outside our organization to easily join on an invited video chat. *The video chat feature allows us to have a daily team huddle each morning and keeps the team together and motivated. *Teams allows us to have "chats" with user-defined groups. So every project has its own chat-channel. PLUS it integrates shared files into share-point. *Integration to other Microsoft products is helpful (Sharepoint, Outlook, and more).

Cons

*It was a little buggy integrating into my Outlook. I had to spend hours trying to get the two integrated and was fixed through some complicated settings I had to find. *It currently doesn't have break-out chat-rooms (taking a large group and dividing them into smaller groups). I had heard they are going to add this feature - but it is not yet available. *Since we present to youth, we need the ability to turn off chat-features to each other during presentations. This is not available like some competitors. Large-group webinar features seem to be lacking. *When we have our whole staff of 27, there are times it can lag and have choppy delays. Note: We are not sure if this is our internet bandwidth of Teams. *

Gathering people together

I have been using, configuring and deploying Microsoft Teams on the last two years, it is a very solid tool not only for communication, also for collaboration. With this pandemic situation, my company is working totally online, and Teams has been a awesome tool to provide Apps, meetings, dashboards, presentations, and the live event features are very impressive, if you go deeply on it, you have almost a television channel operating on your computer.

Pros

The integration with Sharepoint and Office 365 tools is really awesome, works very well, and also you can create and built-in Apps from Power Plataform inside your Teams's Group, and do not forget that you have all the Office 365 Apps to integrate within your groups (the number of the Apps will vary depending on your signature).

Cons

I believe that the price is not so good to medium/small companies, that probably will use a less professional tool, or a freeware with limitations.

A Global way to communicate with Microsoft Teams

Reviewed 9 months ago

Collaboration tools such as Microsoft Teams have shown the effectiveness of working in groups, where decisions are taken collaboratively and discussions are held among all parties involved. Because there is no need for physical space or communication costs, virtual meetings via web conferencing are advantageous for the business. The program is responsible for the efficient recording of all phone conversations or video calls. Last but not least, files and other information may be transferred efficiently.

Pros

Microsoft Teams is a scalable, secure, and easy platform for communicating and sharing information both inside and outside of our company, and it is growing in popularity. Meetings may be held online via video conferencing using Microsoft Teams, which is available for free. Instant messaging is the most instantaneous function, and it is also the most cost-effective and feasible.

Cons

When used, a significant number of computer resources are used, and the volume of CPU memory consumed increases dramatically. Microsoft Teams does not provide screen mirroring functionality. Microsoft Teams does not provide a news feed.

Teams: Best overall functionality and pricing

Reviewed 7 months ago

Overall its a great application with tons of connectivity and usefulness but it still could use a good amount of improvement.

Pros

Since Teams is part of the Microsoft Suite it comes with all of the functionality of other Microsoft programs. Users can host meetings, provide call-in numbers, set groups, and subgroups where you can store files. Teams opens files inside Teams or on the app needed to read that file. It also reduces the number of emails by use of chat and makes tracking files for programs easy by allowing efficient ways to keep everything in one place.

Cons

At times Teams user interface is difficult to use and you're left searching for the button to perform a certain standard action while on a meeting. Sharing files is a little confusing but something you get used to. Also in subgroups it defaults to "Posts" but it would be more convenient to default to "Files"

Pros

The fact that all 30.000 employees are just a few clicks away and that I can reach out to them in only couple of seconds is what I like the most. Teams also supports video calls and meeting rooms for up to 49 people which is the feature my team uses fairly often. Also, whole Microsoft Office package is connected to Teams which makes life much easier. Customer support is really good, I only had the need for them couple times and they were able to help me very quickly.

Cons

Pros

The price, which essentially comes with our enterprise O365 subscription for free, makes deploying Teams across your organization a no-brainer. While there was definitely a few years there where Teams struggled in terms of performance and features, its recently come into its own, with a robust feature set that rivals Slack. Especially like the meetings features, which are fast and easy to set up and have excellent voice and video quality.

Cons

I can quickly provide access to other people during meetings. When providing remote support to resolve issues with clients, it is very fast in its use. Files and document can easily be uploaded and shared for others to see. It stays in the files section and same file can be downloaded easily. Meeting recording is easy and can be used without prior training.

Pros

Easy use with office 365 is at the core of choosing this product because we can quickly use our AD/outlook contact to quickly setup meetings and collaborate. The synchronization and integration is so smooth with little effort.

Cons

I am able to use this software without any problem. However, I have noticed that it requires you to have a good network connectivity for you to enjoy using it else, you might get frustrated if this is not available. Perhaps Microsoft can improve on this aspect of low internet connectivity for people in areas where the network is not strong enough.
