We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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."
"The most valuable feature for us was instant messaging."
"The conversation capabilities and document management are the solution's most valuable features."
"It is easy to share and collaborate, including built-in, edit-in-place, autosave features, without having to download, edit, save, or upload."
"The online editing capabilities, file sharing, auditing, information security, ease of solution management, and the easy user adaptation to the platform are the most valuable features."
"The most valuable features are the collaboration and sharing."
"Ability to store files of any type."
"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."
"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."
"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."
