You can create reports, project plans, or many other things based on Microsoft solutions.

More Microsoft Teams Pros »

"The most valuable feature of this solution is the communication events.""The integration with Teams is the biggest value for us.

Teams allows you to stream, so that's good.""The design of the solution is its most valuable feature.""It's really easy to use the solution.""The initial setup was simple and straightforward.""The user interface and the way we can share and search information are the most valuable. It is very easy to use."

Cons
"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."

More Microsoft Teams Cons »

"This solution would be improved if it was well integrated with other communication applications.""The solution must be able to stream by itself, without integration, the same way that you are able to do it on Facebook Live, Instagram, etc. Streaming must be embedded into it.""Yammer should be able to integrate with Microsoft products, such as Outlook.""We tried to integrate into SharePoint, but it was not really efficient.""The product seems to just add to the complexity of using existing tools.""The way you want to control the communication could be an issue. It depends on what kind of company you are. We are a public company, and there are some regulations that we need to comply with. Its ease of use can be an issue for a company because anybody can subscribe and use it. There are many competitors that are overlapping. Since Microsoft bought Yammer, it tends to be in the shadow. It is not put in the front from the service perspective."

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."

"I don't know about the pricing. Now that Microsoft has bought Yammer, it should be a part of our subscriptions for Office 365."
