Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams has become our organization's global collaboration platform. It addresses the need to work together - esp now that everyone is socially distant. We use it for text, meeting management, and video calls on a daily basis. File sharing has some use as does the Planner function, but these are still shared with other applications as well.
  • Collaboration.
  • Video calls.
  • Chat.
  • Integration with SharePoint.
  • Integration with Calendar.
  • Screen sharing isn't as good as Webex.
  • Resource pig - kills your battery fast!
  • Not as fluid an interface as other solutions.
  • Connect remote workers.
  • Video keeps us in touch F2F.
  • Ability to share files.
Better Microsoft integration, same quality of video, better chat, better sharepoint, worse screen sharing, worse resource management (battery).
Haven't needed any.

Do you think Microsoft Teams delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Are you happy with Microsoft Teams's feature set?

Yes

Did Microsoft Teams live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Microsoft Teams go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Microsoft Teams again?

Yes

Use Microsoft Teams if you are a Microsoft Office 365 and SharePoint shop. The deep integrations and inclusion with the license make it a no-brainer. With external customers we typically use a combination of other platforms so you'll need to manage more than one solution in most cases.
