Overall Satisfaction with Stack Overflow for Teams

We tested Stack overflow for teams to organize our internal documentation. In the end, we noticed it was not the best tool for that job. But, it is great to generate a forum-like conversation among different team members; as well as to keep track of tips, best practices, etc. However, it is not very useful for small teams; for that case is easier to simply discuss these topics in person
  • organizes questions and answers in an easy to read way
  • Allows users to vote or downvote answers
  • Allows to add comments that are not necessary an answer to the question
  • Motivation: the tool works fine but we could not make our team use it on a daily basis
  • Organization: after several questions have been created it is kind of hard to find the required information quickly
  • questions and answers based forum usage
  • Allowing to vote positive or negative to an answer
  • Quick replies that do not have to be answered but maybe derivated questions, clarifications, etc
  • Helped us to start organizing our internal knowledge; although we used a different tool at the end
  • Helped us to centralize our internal development discussions
As a forum, Stack Overflow for teams works much better than Confluence; it allows to discuss and balance different topics in a quick and distressing way. However, to hold documentation and important information; Confluence is better at its job. I would recommend [keeping] all ephemeral information in Stack Overflow and all the important and durable information in a documentation system such as google drive or Confluence

Would you buy Stack Overflow for Teams again?


it works great when your company needs to create an internal developers community and give them a space where they may discuss several topics. It also works great for an internal FAQ and internal forum. However, it does not work well with small companies; there is simply not enough movement to justify the purchase.
