Overall Satisfaction with Workplace by Facebook

Workplace was being used across the whole organization. We mainly used to communicate with different teams across different departments. It was used also for making announcements. It helped us lead our teams remotely throughout the difficult times of the pandemic to deliver our products to the customers, and the familiar user interface helped us get used to it fast.
  • Very Friendly and Familiar User Interface
  • Great Chat Capabilities
  • Announcements/News sharing is Easy
  • There was No Video Meetings Feature
  • It doesn't integrate with Third Party Apps like your Outlook Calendar, Email, etc.
  • There was No Screen Sharing capability
  • File Sharing
  • Groups Feature
  • Great Mobile Application which helps to use it on the go
  • Less Email Communication
  • Better collaboration between different teams working remotely
Unfortunately, Microsoft Teams wins by far in comparison with Workplace. MS Teams has many features that does not exist in Workplace like Screen Sharing, Integration with many Third Party Apps, Meetings, Webinars and the list goes on. I think Workplace would be only a good option if you are a small organization and you do not need all these kind of advanced features.

No

Did Workplace from Meta live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Workplace from Meta go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Workplace from Meta again?

No

Workplace is well suited for organizations that need a lightweight and familiar application to use it for their communication as they had the same user experience as Facebook. But I don't think it is the best application when it comes to full remote work as it lacks many key features available at some of its competitors.
