Review of Microsoft Teams on Windows

If you find it challenging to work alone and need a group of people to help keep you engaged and accountable to do some real productive work, you should try the Microsoft Teams. This is for you whether you enjoy working with people or alone. Microsoft Teams is a platform that helps to get people together to help them be more productive.

Inside the Microsoft Teams app, you are able to work and socialise at the same time. It is the one app that has options for filing, chatting, meetings, executing tasks and viewing the calendar as well as other features all in one space. With it, you can get your family to plan a party or even manage tasks at home.

You could work virtually with your teammates on Microsoft Teams through meetings and video conferences. You also have the opportunity of having all the important tools you need in a workspace in addition to the people who you collaborate with. It's a worker's dream space. It's even more awesome that all these features  aren't bulky. You can have all of those tools in your workspace and it doesn't consume a lot of reasonable space which is important to avoid lags. More than that, the sound output of the video and voice calls are amazing. 


   


Cool Features of Microsoft Teams:

  • Video and voice calls 
  • A very focused workspace 
  • Group calls/Video conference feature. 
  • Gifs, Stickers, Emojis to help in visual expression
  • Cloud storage for many documents. 
  • File sharing feature 
  • Task priority lists to help finish the most important tasks first 
  • Screenshare and whiteboard features for work meetings 
  • Dashboard view of all content to enable ease of access to files. 

 

Why choose Teams over Slack & other Office chat apps?

For starters, Microsoft Teams was created for ease of doing productive work. You can easily connect with external partners on work projects without giving off more data than you would like to give.

 It gives you the option of saving your important data in a digital bank of sorts. The security they offer is also topnotch. If you're not trying to use Microsoft teams for work, organising a part or a family function will work just fine with all the tools packed in the app. 


Advantages of Teams:

  • You get to place all your important work productivity apps in one space. 
  • It is seamlessly integrated with social media apps especially in the case of sharing important documents 
  • The video conferencing feature is awesome as even a one person call can be seamlessly turned into a conference call  
  • The video and audio quality are high quality.
  • Everything on the app from the chat option to work collaborations are optimally organised for a productive work time. 
  • Their security is solid and the customer support is top notch. 
  • It's easy to invite external partners using Microsoft Teams. 

 

Disadvantages

  • The navigation might be a bit complicated.
  • The filing system takes some getting used to 
  • It needs good RAM and Rom to operate optimally.

Top Pcmac Reviews

  • Nice start; needs polish

    By Jeratain (Pcmac user)

    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).
  • Law firm

    By me,you and everyone else (Pcmac user)

    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
  • Teams for construction

    By dopefosh2113 (Pcmac user)

    I work in the construction industry and we do not have many project management solutions that have been standardized across the industry. I initially tried using OneNote for managing projects and my team found it to be too lethargic. Later I added a new team member to the group and he immediately started using the teams app in our existing work group. It caught on like wildfire and within a week my entire team of 10 was using it. The ease of file sharing, instant communication, task assignment, wiki functions, and compatibility with other apps has made us all wonder how we got along without it. It solved many existing problems we had. Now we just need to convince the rest of the company to get on board.
  • A serious downgrade from StaffHub

    By amsllb (Pcmac user)

    Compared to StaffHub, the Shifts interface is inconvenient and difficult to use. It has been nearly impossible to get my team to use it consistently, as they rarely receive notifications despite having them all turned on. As a result, we often have shifts going uncovered until the very last minute when a manager has to jump in. We’ve even began messaging in addition to opening or offering shifts in hopes of triggering some sort of notification, to no avail. I will admit that I do find the desktop version more user friendly than the mobile, but that is useless in a fast paced ever-changing work environment. I have faith that it could be improved by making Shifts more easily accessible (perhaps from the bottom menu), creating a badge number to indicate when there are open shifts/requests, and improving the reliability of notifications. Fingers crossed that improvements will come soon.
