Overall Satisfaction with Stack Overflow for Teams

Stack Overflow has been really helpful. It has helped the most in collaborating with other team members over product discussions. After using Stack Overflow for Teams, we had a single place where everyone posted their doubts and anyone from the engineering team who has the answer to it could come on the platform and answer the question or doubt. This way the question as well as the answer was transparent and publicly available and not sitting in someone's DM. The biggest relief it served was that now if you face any issue then before directly asking you can search it on Stack Overflow for teams and could find an answer there.
  • We can add tags to questions. This helps in filtering similar types of questions. So when our organisation collected more than 200 - 300 questions, we filtered the questions and we could generate a report on what topics most questions are asked. Then the expert on that topic took one session and explained everything to others as well.
  • Searching questions are pretty easy. We can either search using tags or using keywords. Hence if we got stuck anywhere while developing or brainstorming, we could quickly go to Stack Overflow and search if this question was already asked.
  • Stack Overflow also shows points for individuals. This way we were able to identify the developer with most points and hence reward them for their contribution.
  • Integration with Slack can be done better. As of now for every minute update we get a notification on the Slack channel. There was no way to limit that.
  • More integrations can be added. For example integrations with ClickUp or JIRA to directly create a task from Stack Overflow.
  • Points assigning algorithm could be better. If I am answering my own question, I used to get points, which ideally should not be the case.
  • Tagging questions.
  • Replying to answers by other people.
  • Marking an answer as accepted and/or upvoting/downvoting an answer.
  • It has reduced the TAT for questions and their solutions.
  • The "developer time" is saved as answers to most common questions are already at one place.
  • It aroused a competitive type of spirit as the one dev with the most points gets a voucher every month. So everyone was motivated to know the product more and answer as many as they could and achieve higher points.

In my opinion, Stack Overflow for Teams is well suited for an organization that is on a hiring spree for the engineering teams. The reason for it is because instead of catering to doubts of new joinees individually, they can be asked to refer to the Stack Overflow and hence will save a lot of time for both new joiners as well as the existing employees.
