Microsoft Teams Tips & Advice

Let’s take a look at the pros and cons of Microsoft Teams

Pros 

  • Microsoft Teams helps teams communicate and work more efficiently via channels, direct messages, and video conferences all in one place.
  • Rather than sending files back and forth via email, Microsoft Teams allows users to upload files directly to the tool and share them with other team members. The cloud further makes collaborating easy, even in real time.
  • Microsoft tools such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or SharePoint can be accessed inside Microsoft Teams.
  • Microsoft Teams integrates with many third-party apps, including Droplr

Cons 

  • Microsoft offers too many tools that are similar to Teams, such as Skype, Microsoft Stream, Yammer, and OneNote. This leads employees to confusion as to what tools they should be using.
  • Microsoft Teams limits the number of channels that can be created to 100. This may be enough for smaller organizations but larger corporations may run out of channels for communication.
  • Microsoft offers no unified search feature for conversations that take place across all tools which means there is no way to do a global search for a file or conversation that may have happened in a tool outside of Teams.
  • Organizations that use Office 365 may dictate that employees use Microsoft Teams as opposed to other tools that may be a better fit for the organization.
