Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable features are hyper-linking, the Drawing Tool, and enhanced tables.""It's extremely intuitive.""It is just the fact that it is a one-stop shop for all project documentation. It is compared to storing things in files and directories and stuff like that. It provides the overall usability and accessibility of many projects and documents in one area.""The integration's very good. You still have integration with lots of third party products, and it's very good.""It is easy to use.""There is a good library of templates for a wide range of needs.""It integrates well with other Atlassian products""The most valuable features are the ease of creating documentation, as well as charts."

"I think what the team likes most is the improvements when it comes to communication.""It is an excellent all-around communications tool that works well for business purposes.""The product is continually growing to add new features and functionality.""The chat functionality is the solution's most valuable feature.""You can add teams to a conversation. You can create reports, project plans, or many other things based on Microsoft solutions. It has improved communication between teams and within each team.""The group chat is very good.""There is a new Skype feature in Teams that is excellent.""The initial setup was really straightforward and easy."

Cons
"The standard table capability is substandard and virtually unusable.""The UI is good but bland. It could be updated a bit to make it more modern and interesting to look at.""It would be good if they can continue working towards making documentation and editing as quick and easy as possible. It has got a lot of capability, but I don't know how to use it. I don't find some of the things that intuitive. Sometimes, it doesn't seem obvious to me how to use it, but it is like learning any new tool. You actually need to get trained on the tool to get maximum out of it.""This is kind of by design, however, the lack of control in terms of editing the page to make it look the way you want it to look is an issue. It would be nice if there was more flexibility there.""The product should have a workflow with approvals out-of-the-box.""Space maintenance could be made a little more user-friendly.""I would like to see integration with Slack.""It would be interesting if they had graphical templates that allowed typical agile ceremonies to be documented better."

"I would say that Microsoft Team invitations from the calendar within the solution could be improved.""It may be a little daunting to learn and is still a tool in development.""The product is immature and lacks some of the features and functionality you would expect in a collaboration tool.""We occasionally have issues with synchronization between different dates. This aspect of stability needs improvement.""I think they can improve the all those segments for channel bulking. Also, some functionalities which migrated from Skype for Business to Teams, is not supported by Teams. We had used them in Skype for Business.""In the next release, I would like to have the interface modernized and brought more up to date.""The mobile application needs improvement. There are a lot of features on the web and desktop versions that aren't implemented yet on mobile.""I would like to see Outlook options added to this solution."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"For us, it's free to use. We don't pay any licensing.""When you purchase this solution you get some support.""The issues I have with the pricing are in respect to the add-ons."

More Atlassian Confluence Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Pricing is free to a threshold and then after that you have to license per user.""It is the standard license which is part of many Office packets.""We are satisfied with the price of this solution.""If you have content that requires more security and you want to use it in a more secure manner, with more protection, then it will come at a higher cost.""If you have clients who do not have a computer and are joining with their phones it's an additional fee of $5.00 per user.""The pricing for Teams is very competitive."
