In a world where young innovative companies having been running circles around time-honored giants like Microsoft, IBM, Oracle and SAP, it is rare to see one of the “80’s companies” produce an application that is (to put it bluntly) - relevant. Microsoft Teams puts Microsoft back on the ‘must-have’ software map, and could become the bridge the connects the old world with the new world. Unlike past product offerings, Microsoft Teams has made it easy to integrate newer (non-Microsoft) apps side-by-side with trusted enterprise apps like Office365 and SharePoint. Imagine a team collaboration “home page” where topic-based chat rooms, instant webcam meetings, private cloud file storage, mobile productivity apps and trusted office documents, live side by side in perfect harmony. For companies who are trying to make the transition from old to new; from Gen-X to Millenials and Gen-Z, Microsoft Teams provides an easy and intuitive way to get there. (Five stars)
Overall Teams is a decent collaboration tool. When using it without being used to other competitors’ methods of working then Teams is intuitive and nice. When comparing it to Slack, then Teams takes one step forward and two backwards. But not all is hopeless! The service simply needs a handful of features and UI enhancements to improve. In terms of the iOS app, here’s some quick updates: 1. When I get notifications on multiple devices, they should dismiss from all devices once I’ve acknowledged it on any of the devices. Right now when I read something on my phone, the Mac app keeps the badge notifications. The inverse is also true. This is rather annoying. 2. More granular notifications. I don’t want to see a notification for certain channels in a team, even if a channel command is used. The lack of a mute function is unbearable. 3. Dark Mode. It’s 2018 and I don’t want to stare at a bright background in the evenings. Please give the option to enable a dark mode to save our eyesight and battery life (for OLED screens).
What I especially like about this app is the fact that similar to WhatsApp it allows for a conversation to take place without multiple emails going back-and-forth and having other emails come in, in between those emails. It keeps a better flow to the work that’s being performed and doesn’t simply clog up our email boxes. I’m also able to not only create different teams for different purposes but if I really want to I can create different categories with each team. I especially like creating the different teams and dealing with different members of my law firm through those different groups, again keeping organized those discussions back-and-forth. I highly recommend using this app it’s been terrific it has a desktop component as well as apps for the iPhone
Chat and group chat options - functionally Teams is very similar to Slack but I think integration across many other Office apps (OneNote, etc.) gives Teams an edge. The UI does feel less slick, more dated and somehow less snappy than some other players in this space - I’m not sure how to articulate what i find problematic or underwhelming about the interface or it’s overall design but it just feels inherently corporate and less personal, perhaps more personality and personalization options could improve this aspect of the software, fun avatars, voice memos, active background images, logo and brand integration spring to mind. With Web, Desktop App for Mac and PC as well as mobile App offerings I can be accessible everywhere to my teams and the video conferencing and call options are pretty slick so far as well. Good job overall M$ ;)
Unlike the Teams app for PCs, this app is brain dead. You can’t hide chats. If all the places you want to hide irrelevant material, it’s on you mobile phone. The General page is also a waste of space, and there is no way to customize it for your users so it goes directly to files or chats. At this point it is easier to use text and email for both messages and content. The only useful thing it has that the PC app and web interface doesn’t is the ability to show if a user has access to Teams or not, but since chat is hobbled already, it’s meaningless. The only thing I find helpful is the calendar because I don’t sync my work calendar with my phone because of the way it integrates with my personal calendar and this keeps it separate. Microsoft really needs to work on these apps before rolling them out. And functionality should match the PC app. You may have to do it differently, but the functionality should be the same.
