Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Teams

We are rolling out Microsoft Teams as a collaboration tool across our organization as a possible replacement for Skype. We have beta users who have rolled it it out to their teams and I currently use it with my AP Team.
  • Easy links to Box and Sharepoint
  • Easy storage of internal Wiki info
  • Integration of group OneNote notebook
  • I do not like only having the option for persistent chat. I would like an option that really replaces Skype rather than documenting all conversations.
  • I wish we could have links in Wiki rather than only having notes
  • I wish the Wiki notes would collapse so that we can see just the head line of the the note rather than all the details
  • This product cuts down on the storage of necessary documents in multiple locations
  • This product allows all team members to have access to important files - regardless of format - in one location
  • This product has persistent chat, which can help for project management
It has a lot of great features and we are working to roll it out to our whole organization. It sometimes feels a little under-developed or maybe under used. There are some things I wish it did better - like integrating the group calendar rather than my own calendar and letting us have instant chat vs persistent.
Most people are not familiar with this product and there isn't a lot of training on this software on the web. I believe, however, it has great potential and I'm determined to learn what I can. Also you can't really call anyone for support so it rather relies on person to person input. It's not really the sort of tool you can look at and really grasp - like a smart phone. Maybe they could embed a help document in the software.
OneNote and SharePoint are powerful collaboration tools that I use heavily. The great thing is Teams incorporates these software packages into one instance. Your team can look at the shared OneNote; they can view and upload files in SharePointe; they can leave general notes in the Wiki section all from this one collaboration tool. I'm looking forward to seeing how this develops at our organization in the months ahead.
Teams works really well for internal groups who have documents they all need to access and share. It works well with other Microsoft products so you can access them through the Teams interface rather than searching through your internet browser or your internal network folders.
