It lets you collaborate with everything…

It lets you collaborate with everything in no time. Everything that you need, from emails to chats, from calendars to assignment planners, all in a single shot. A single annual installment is enough for the whole lot. Every time we do or share projects or works, a backup is always generated letting you access them even if the original ones get deleted. Also, they prove to be highly secured in nature. Since they are also available online, it lets you access the data from anywhere. At certain times, a need of restarting the program emerges when the access to your data gets altered. There is no option for editing the comments posted. It may literally take hours to process during updates. They turn out to be more time consuming than expected. Also, the update notification tends to appear only when in middle of some operations in any of their apps. This can cause a lot of frustration for the users. -via Capterra

Go to software for just about any of…

Go to software for just about any of our office documents, archives, and files. We used to buy one license per device, now with Office 365, we are given up to 5 devices per person/license. Documents can also now be edited online via the web browser. Also, authoring is made social and collaborative, i.e., multiple persons can work together on a document at the same time. Updates are frequent to make sure we have the latest features push to our devices, but also for certain macros or harmful extensions and files, Office is constantly being updated for security. Office 365 also integrates well with Dropbox among the many possible 3rd-party integrations. Let’s admit it… .doc, .xls, .ppt, etc. are the file types of choice for the majority of our offices, schools, etc. We’re locked in with Microsoft, and sadly it seems they don’t really make it that easy to be compatible with other open source software or similar online tools (e.g., Google Docs). The formatting when converted looks terrible and not so compatible. Social and with up to 5 devices per person… Office is now easier to use, always up-to-date with the latest features, and made social/collaborative online. The look, feel, features are decades ahead from other web or open source alternative software out there. -via Capterra

I like the email functionality of this software . I like that I am able to easily sort my emails that the way it set up is easy to see my emails and then I can change my view so that I can see them in a way I would like to see them Setting up appointments on the software is difficult and that’s putting it lightly. First of all you have to be in your own calendar or when you set up an appointment or a meeting then it gives you an error saying that because you’re not in the correct calendar it won’t track replies to your meeting request . That is a big pain is going to limit you to that then you should be able to select the proper calendar at the beginning when you first set up a meeting at the end after you’ve already typed in all the information. There’s nowhere that you can save a meeting and go back in and adjusted like you can email draft . This function would make it much easier to set up meetings I use it successfully on a daily basis to receive reply and store emails. I also used to set up meetings for multiple bosses -via Capterra

For the most part it just works and it works well in a business environment. My users at my company love the added benefit of OneDrive for Business’s 1TB of space that comes with the subscription. The sharing capabilities of OneDrive coupled with the rest of the Office suite are unbeatable plus you get the MS support to go with it with real live techs for issues or questions. In an environment with a corporate firewall, it requires a bit of setup and it is tough to catch everything right away. So you have to fight some issues at the start until you figure out what your firewall requires. Random issues with versions and features to specific versions can be quite frustrating but the support is there to help with that. The techs are very knowledgeable and quick to respond. High user productivity with simple management and quick support. There are also tons of features and the cost is affordable and tiered. -via Capterra

Office 365 gets you the most current…

Office 365 gets you the most current Microsoft Office package, kept up to date through a subscription service, complete with a robust management console for adding users and creating groups for emails, calendars, and other shared access. It’s the same east-to-use software users are familiar with, but with a management console accessible from the web that allows administrators to add or remove new users, setting them up with all their software in just a few short steps. It also permits the creation of groups for things like email or calendars through Outlook, allowing shared access quickly and easily. The only downside is given the reoccurring pricing, it is not the option I would recommend for a non-business class user. For a personal user, it would be better to purchase the software outright, or go with an alternative solution like Libre Office. Office 365 is all the great and powerful features of the Microsoft Office suite, but adapted and expanded for use in business to enterprise class environments. It’s quick and easy to add new users and get them joined in with your office environment and to manage them later from any computer with an internet connection. -via Capterra

Provider Overview

Launched in 2017, Microsoft decided it needed to jump in to the newly developing team collaboration market with their Office 365 addition of Teams. Similar to other options available, Microsoft Teams builds off of the idea of a persistent, cloud based work chat. However, different from all other options, Microsoft Teams specifically builds off of the Office 365 platform to bring together the entire Microsoft Office  Suite of applications and solutions. Microsoft themselves bills Teams as an entirely new experience, one that brings together people, conversations and content while also bringing to the table the necessary tools that teams need – all wrapped up in the familiarity of Microsoft’s Office applications.

Microsoft Teams is a different solution from others on the market, and from the grand-daddy Slack specifically. While Slack can work for almost any size, its strength in smaller teams especially those with developers, Microsoft Office has an immediate edge in the Enterprise market. With so many companies already invested in the Microsoft Office 365 environment, or even older Microsoft legacy apps, the familiarity and basis for adding Teams to their arsenal already exists. With its unique activity feed, chat ,teams, meeting and file sharing support, along with deep Skype and Office integration, Microsoft Teams stands as a unique option to expand on an already existing, widely used and robust platform of office solutions.

Editor’s Bottom Line of Microsoft Teams 

 

While at its core Microsoft Teams aims to deliver a similar experience to other solutions in this market: that is a replacement for email, an easy way to connect with coworkers, stay on top of projects, and ultimately cross tasks off your to-do list. How each platform enables teams to complete work will differ on factors like the features and tools available, the ability and availability to integrate and customize with other tools, and the overall ease of use. Microsoft Teams manages to  hit all of these points, in a way that hasn’t been done before quite the same way just yet – and the real trick of Microsoft Team’s sleeve is the platform from which it was able to grow.

Built from the ground up off of the Microsoft Office platform, specifically the subscription and cloud based Office 365 solution, Teams works directly and very closely with the existing Microsoft Office solutions that are so incredibly in offices, schools and even homes. In fact, Teams is only available to companies utilizing Microsoft Office 365, and is built into that subscription model. The power of Teams becomes most obvious when fully invested into the entire Microsoft ecosystem. Teams expands beyond the idea of simple, yet consistent, messaging with occasional file sharing or a video call.

In fact, Microsoft Teams allows users to easily share Word or Excel files to be edited directly within Microsoft Teams, or even allow users to sync up their Outlook inbox and Calendar for quick access to all your important information. With the combination of an activity feed, similar to a Facebook news feed, and both private one on one chats, team spaces, and specific meeting spaces, Microsoft Team’s makes it easy to stay on top of not only your coworkers and their projects, but your own projects and files as well – all while enabling deep collaboration on your resources directly in the same exact app. Oh and don’t forget deep Skype integration for video and audio calls, along with the other multitude of available integrations

Microsoft Teams is aiming a bit higher than other options on the market, focusing mostly on the Enterprise end of the spectrum. The combination of the already loved Office 365 suite of solutions, and the in depth collaboration and communication provided by Microsoft Teams, is an incredibly capable combination that will empower users to get more done, quicker.
