Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Teams

Right now, our company uses Teams for daily operations, meetings, and training. We have several groups set up as different departments, each with their own channels set up as projects. Each channel allows multiple tabs, in which we insert OneNote, Word, Excel, and web links to increase efficiency. The chat and screen share function is utilized daily.
  • A place to collaborate.
  • Native workspace to bring in other MS products, and even other web-based sites, and resources.
  • Increases efficiency between multiple MS products and features.
  • Wish you could share/send a channel between other groups.
  • Would like to see better web support for viewing Excel files, or other websites.
  • Can be a bit time consuming when managing the Wiki data, especially when removing old channels from OneDrive.
  • We now have quality meetings that we can track and refer to.
  • We were already paying for MS Office 365 - so it was way cheaper than any other PM software.
  • MS Office 365 Business and Teams can do everything a professional PM software can do. If you invest time into learning the program, and other suite features, you'll be as efficient as someone spending over 10k on their PM software annually. It's a bargain and no one takes advantage of it.
Microsoft Teams is better overall when used in a workstation to get things done collectively. You can share your screen with a simple call, @mention someone to notify them of things, insert your files or drive. It can do every thing these other applications are doing. What you are paying for in alternative products is the fact that someone went to the trouble to set up an out-of-the-box package, and more than likely will not fit your specific work needs. Moreover, I didn't realize there were ways I could be more efficient until I watched and read about building an MS Teams environment as it provides far more versatility, and makes it easier to get work done when compared to using the previous PM software that we tried.
They always respond and answer questions.

In a collaborative setting or one that requires information to be shared across offices and locations, Microsoft Teams is well suited. If you like the SharePoint site ergonomics than no, teams is not SharePoint. It's another way to interact with the same information, though.
