Microsoft Teams

I think its great for short internal meetings and internal work. Desktop sharing ect. The chat is also really well done and works very well. We have not had any failures that has caused issues. It also great for adhoc groups and trouble shooting in our case it allows us to easily split off with cross functional groups to discuss issues without cluttering up a larger conversation. We also like that it is linked to our Active Directory information in Azure.

Pros

Abstract

  • Versioning for desginers
  • Collaboration between team members

Microsoft Teams

  • It has a presentation mode, video recording, and the recordings, as well as the transcripts, are stored in the cloud.
  • Microsoft Teams is simple to set up and manage. Excellent quality for video and phone calls.
  • I also like how it connects to Outlook so you can view your calendar there.

Cons

Abstract

  • Asset exports are not as great as Zeplin and others.
  • Filtering within files.

Microsoft Teams

  • The Chat Room - sometimes it's hard to find. The room sometimes seems disconnected from the meeting you are in. I like that it archives them, but it can be hard to find things in an archived chat room.
  • Cameras / Microphones - I wish it was more flexible in the kinds of cameras you can use. I'd love it you could include multiple cameras or to include video overlays more easily.
  • Scheduling outside your organization - Yes, I know you can just email someone to add them, but it doesn't work with Outlook and sometimes, the meeting doesn't get added to their calendar.

Microsoft Teams has really shown how it can assist in this current environment but even without so, it is valuable as a tool to connect with individuals and collaborate on conference schedules.

Abstract has a difficult learning curve. If a feature-branch workflow is new to you, then it will take some getting used to. They make a lot of updates to the interface and these feature releases get ahead of their documentation. They rely heavily on an excellent customer support team and are present on various Slack channels to help design professionals with issues.

Microsoft Teams 7.1

While the overall offer of Microsoft Teams is compelling, the whole organisation and UI has quite some confusing edges. There is a mixture of desktop apps, web apps and web apps displayed inside the desktop apps. Moreover, the CPU usage of some of the Microsoft Teams components are dreadful (e.g., OneDrive for Business is the highest CPU-consumer, even above 3D and video software). Somehow, the mixture of development approaches does not provide a really coherent view. As Microsoft Teams also incorporates the Planner, OneDrive, OneNote and Sharepoint toolsets, it doen't help that they all have different interfaces and that navigation between them is confusing. Files in OneDrive, versus Sharepoint online versus files inside a team files folder seem to be disjunct. Opening a Word file from the locally synced OneDrive does not present the same syncing experience as opening the same file via Microsoft Teams into the Desktop app. And occasional sync problems don't help either. That said, collaboratively editing MS Office files has improved a lot and is (almost) comparable to collaboratively editing Google documents. Almost.

Abstract by nature is complex and has to respond to whatever changes in Sketch. So there are frequent issues. Support can be slow to respond and are not always helpful, but they are quick to find and patch the bugs. Overall, it's not the best support, but it hasn't been detrimental.

I honestly have not used the support function for Teams much at all. The one issue I've had is when our organization implemented Duo two-factor authentication. When I tried to load Microsoft Teams, it would repeatedly send me Duo push notifications and never actually log me in. So I was forced to use the Teams web app instead of the desktop application. Our IT support team helped me with this issue but it required completely resetting my Teams account, and then the issue came back after a while. So I was not satisfied with the result. I don't know if the issue has more to do with Duo, or Teams, or our IT department's attempt at integrating the two through Active Directory, but either way it left a bad taste in my mouth.

I purchased and administer Abstract. It was requested by our design department who evaluated it.

Microsoft Teams has a survey or research feature, which is a significant source of data collection in the company. Also, Microsoft Teams integrates with different programs, and this brings efficiency and perfection in its role. Finally, there is the search and filtering feature from Microsoft Teams, which ensures no loss of data or time spent when looking for them.

Return on Investment

Abstract

  • Single source of truth for the team.
  • Could quickly get expensive with corporate accounts.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

Microsoft Teams

  • A positive impact has been in having to save time for IT staff from not having to deploy other collaboration tools, since Teams is an all-in-one collaboration tool.
  • Another positive impact has been in the ability to set permissions for different user groups. This helps to keep things more secure overall.
  • One negative impact has been in the extra time it has taken to try and get users up to speed with using the platform. More formal training is required.
