Likelihood to Recommend

Microsoft Teams

Companies with a large population should seriously consider using Microsoft Teams to communicate, especially if you are already using Microsoft programs like Outlook and their calendar. It all connects together inside of teams. So if you have a meeting on your calendar, Teams will automatically place your status as red (which is 'in a meeting). If you have a very small company and/or don't already utilize Microsoft programs, Teams may not be best suited for your needs.

Pros

Microsoft Teams

  • The ability to have a private chat with one person or a group message with everyone in your department.
  • All of our important documents are held in the 'wiki' portion of teams, which allows things to be easily accessed and all in one place.
  • I like that you can use GIFs right in the messenger. It adds a little fun to your usual chats.

Cons

Microsoft Teams

  • Teams will randomly close for no particular reason throughout the day on my computer. It's a bit of an annoyance.
  • The activity portion confuses me time to time on which chat it is notifying me since I have private chats with the same people in group chats. Causes a little confusion.
  • It took me a while to realize that there is a sidebar for the wiki portion. I was only seeing one file when I knew there was more but couldn't find them.

Usability

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams 7.5
Based on 2 answers
Teams has helped in improving team communication. It has helped in cutting down on so many emails. It has also provided easy sharing. I handle 5 different teams and each team is of 8-10 members. This has helped me a lot in team management and communication.

Alternatives Considered

Microsoft Teams

Microsoft I feel does better than 2 out of the 3 I listed because of Office integration. Most businesses now are Microsoft cloud based and Teams seamlessly fits right in there. Another benefit is if you are using MFA with the Microsoft app in of itself it can help streamline authentication and working offsite. Slack and Campfire just can't offer that.

Return on Investment

Microsoft Teams

  • Microsoft Teams makes meetings easier for us. It allows management to stay on top of the tasks at hand and manage their staff.
