Microsoft Teams Primary Use Case

Tom Brouillette
Senior Principal Consultant at NCS Partners
We primarily use the solution for team conversations. For example, I use it for filing team documents, although, for individual notes and things of that nature, I might use OneNote. I'm using it more and more now for video conferencing within the organization. I haven't really used it too much outside of the organization, although my plan is to use it outside of the company in the near future. View full review »
Jelle Verbeeck
Proposal Manager at Data Unit NV
Microsoft Teams is used, in our case, to collaborate with all internal employees, to work on offering some proposals, and to work together online on files in Word and Excel. We largely use it to collaborate online and to have video meetings with customers. We can integrate SharePoint sites with other people. We have libraries that are available within Teams so that people can sync those libraries to their local drives and therefore will have the most up to date information and documents at their disposal.

Global Internal Communications Manager at a manufacturing company with 10,001+ employees
I think we're use Microsoft Teams for almost everything when it comes to communications. When I call my colleagues, I no longer using the phone. Because I use Teams so much, I picked up the phone the other day and it was strange — It was like it was the first time I picked up the phone. I use Teams as a phone. Even on my smartphone, I call people using Teams. We're using Teams to call people to set meetings, record meetings, share documents — all communication now goes through Teams. We create groups to share our documents and update them live. It is really very practical and collaborative. View full review »

Jimmy O'Rourke
Sr. Product Manager - AccuRev at Micro Focus
We use it for all communication between product development, product management, technical support, field teams, and other stakeholders. It is our primary vehicle for all communications. We have used it extensively to share content, such as spreadsheets, docs, PowerPoints, and other product related materials, for R&D and internal teams (e.g., the technical and field teams) as well as customer-facing documentation. With the recent COVID-19 forcing all our team members to work remotely, this solution has been an invaluable resource where we can easily set up virtual meetings (with or without video conferencing).

HelenTalbot
Business Analyst at a financial services firm with 1-10 employees
Our company is small, with only six people. I work out of my home, and one of my colleagues does as well. The two of us used this solution for instant messaging and bits and pieces like that. We didn't actually use the full service because we're not a big company. We don't have an instant messaging infrastructure, so we use Teams instead. My other colleagues did not use it because they are mobile and do not sit at a desk during the day. We stopped using it because my coworker is on maternity leave and will be off for another year. However, when she returns, we will probably go back to using Teams. View full review »
