The most valuable feature is the screen sharing, which works well.Slack is a powerpack bundle of features that help small or large organizations to handle teams and their tasks.Its intuitive design makes it easy to use and understand, hence we do not have a need to spend much on educating our teams.Overall, it is a good idea as it works better than most solutions out there.It has definitively made an improvement on our productivity. Information does not got lost in hundreds of less important messages.Its integration with different apps is a great feature.

Cons
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.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.I would like to see Outlook options added to this solution.The mobile application needs improvement. There are a lot of features on the web and desktop versions that aren't implemented yet on mobile.In the next release, I would like to have the interface modernized and brought more up to date.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.We occasionally have issues with synchronization between different dates. This aspect of stability needs improvement.The product is immature and lacks some of the features and functionality you would expect in a collaboration tool.

I would like the text in chat to be more customizable.I would like to see the social sharing of blogs, announcements, or other news directly from the message corner.The only area of concern that I have is with the inability to preview received documents without having to download them first.The mobile app needs improvement. It consistently misses notifications.Notifications are not as good as they could be (especially for mobile).Slack could add additional and better integrations.

Pricing and Cost Advice
We are satisfied with the price of this solution.It is the standard license which is part of many Office packets.Pricing is free to a threshold and then after that you have to license per user.
