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.

The area that needs to be improved is modular asset management. When we are uploading the assets in bulk, it is not aligned.

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.

It's a costly product, but the number of available features justifies it.
