Cons
"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.""I didn't know that Teams is part of Office 365, so I think that it should be better advertised with its features and capabilities.""The solution should offer a way for people to virtually raise their hands in a meeting so that everyone can speak. There's a user voice for this already, but it would help if there was some sort of visual cue as well.""If I could completely eliminate Outlook and only use Teams, that would help me immensely. Productivity would increase drastically and many of our team members would be more efficient in our day-to-day, as we would be living primarily in a single tool."

More Microsoft Teams Cons »

"The way to change the version of the files in SharePoint should be improved. The method of synchronizing files from local to cloud can also use improvement.""The workflow engine cannot support the business needs.""The solution lacks collaboration features."
