Really like the appearance of reporting and the web booking.

Microsoft Teams

One of the best internal communication platforms on the market is Microsoft Teams. The Outlook integration allows you to keep track of everything that happens throughout your day. Using instant messaging to communicate with your team is efficient and time-saving.

Pros

ACTIVE Education

  • Separation of payer and the person attending the activity. For example: children incur charges, but the parent is responsible for paying them.
  • Fast - in our old system there was a delay while customers waited for the system to respond.

Microsoft Teams

  • Scheduling - it's easy to integrate your meetings in Outlook
  • Invitations - Since everyone in our organization is on Outlook, it's really easy to invite someone to a meeting and make sure it appears on their calendar
  • Chat room / file sharing - it's easy to add files and links to the chatroom

Cons

ACTIVE Education

  • I really like the look and feel of ActiveNet Reporting, but it isn't extremely customizable. Maybe there is something I am missing, but other employees have shared that same feedback.
  • It would be nice to have the system synchronize with other software we use. (EMS, StarRez, etc.) When planning conferences, we currently have hotel guests and registration that we would like to share information for through each system. Currently it is just double data entry.
  • Would like to be able to add more resources and details to a room booking and have the corresponding departments be notified of the order/track inventory.

Microsoft Teams

  • The app does not work well with apple products at all.
  • The desktop application does not compete with other remote working platforms.
  • The screen-share is the most inconvenient. While presenting you cannot share a single tab/window, you are forced to share your entire screen. There is a privacy concern.
  • While presenting on behalf of a colleague, you will have to stop the presentation, mute/unmute then return to the presentation which is disruptive and unprofessional especially when recording.
  • The members of the organisation assume guests have the capabilities they have, which guests do not. Microsoft Teams does not work as a social media platform and the guest feature should be abandoned entirely because it is most frustrating for guests.
  • Guests invited to Microsoft Teams meetings cannot view multiple video cams while using a browser with a VPN service.
  • The activity/meeting feedback window in the app itself is chaotic and can be better organised. I recommend data logs that can be pulled when needed.

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.

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.

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.

ACTIVE Network allowed: grouping of classes, good interface, allowed importing of records, complex payment plans, per class fee structures, user fees, and trial classes.

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

ACTIVE Education

  • Not sure yet.
  • It is newer to me and my department.
  • Double data entry which is just extra man hours.

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.
