  • Solid App for Team Collaboration Aug 1, 2020

    By Sanjay-Writes
    I was a reluctant participant to Microsoft Teams when it came out. I felt that this is yet another application that’s purporting to bring teams together and make it easier and fun for distributed teams to huddle. I am glad I was wrong. Teams kind of grows on you. It doesn’t have a lack of features... but they are presented in a way that facilitates better interaction. Yes, there are issues when you invite someone external to participate on your Teams. This part of having external users I thought was quite difficult in the beginning... but it has come a long ways. Also, the part where you are having live events with external participants. I can understand that Teams has to observe a fine line between external participation and security. I think they have done that. I also find the limits on video conferencing a challenge; but for internal meetings, it works rather well. I love how you can bring in various assets into the meetings and engage with them. There’s a lot to love about Teams, and a lot to poke holes at... ultimately, the type of application will drive the engagement from your participants, and your eventual appreciation.

    I just don't have enough thumbs up for this application. It is very well integrated in all the other Office tools, it opens your eyes for apps you never thought about, easy to understand and use. And the fact that now you can have meetings and see everybody (even when more than 10 persons, and let's not forget the security) is just perfect. Good job Microsoft (from a heavy Linux user)!

  • Teams preliminary evaluation (first week) Aug 7, 2020

    By Kate Cullen10
    Praise: Internal integration of various technologies (Skype, Sharepoint, Outlook Calendar, etc.) and external connectivity with Office 365 constituents is seamless and functional. In particular, remote meetings capabilities, including chat, desktop share, audio, all work well within our corporate network. Also, client-based app and web-based app have essentially the same functionality and look-and-feel, which is definitely preferred. iPhone-based mobile app works well so far. Very good compliment to the main Teams usage on my corporate Microsoft Surface Pro. Criticism: I was never a fan of the Sharepoint-based file presentation and interface. Windows Explorer in details mode using libraries, shortcuts, etc. is preferred for file management. Maybe Sharepoint file presentation is needed for tablet devices. I’m a longtime laptop point-click user. Also, in meetings, it was not obvious how to re-display the control bar (enable mute, for example) once the control bar disappeared automatically. I learned how eventually, but guidance on such important items should be more prominent. I had to hunt for a solution.

    It had alot of useful properties, but i had some improvements to say concerning the assignments: (1) The way that we must check the teams one-by-one to see the assignments i may have is time consuming. It could be an option, but it's better to have a way for them to pile up together. (2) Maybe notify a day before due date than staying silent even until past the due date? (3) The calendar could be used to show the assignment's due date in it.

  • Love Teams! Needs a few things to be perfect! May 27, 2020

    By stagevi
    Teams has been an excellent communication tool as all coworkers are working remote now. Very easy to collaborate, create team calls, screen shares, etc. A few updates would be the cherry on top. 1. As a creative team we are always dropping files into the chat function to share progress shots, inspiration images and comps. I, and a lot of my team uses the same file naming structure for these images - so there are multiple files with the same name. Teams will not let you upload 2 files with the same name without a pop up window asking if you want to keep both files...and if I click yes it renames them xxxxxx(1), xxxxxx(2) and so on. Please make it so it either let’s me keep both files with the same name without asking or renames them automatically without asking. 2. When an audio call comes in via Teams it only shows the person initiating the call. If John Doe is calling through a multi-user group it only shows up as John Doe making team calls vs a single user call indistinguishable. A “John Doe via Project xxxxxx Group” would be all it needs. 3. More customizability within chat groups. We use chat groups 99% of the time vs broader team group windows. Would be nice to be able to change sounds, chat group avatar, background image, etc. Other than that love the app and it’s integration into Outlook calendar and contacts!

    Sometimes in between it automatically asks me for my credentials and when put in it just keeps loading. No matter how many times I restart the app it's still the same. Even when I switch accounts it happens. Out of nowhere while accessing it, the loading screen comes up. Everytime I am forced to uninstall and reinstall the app. This issue hasn't been taken care of. I'm not facing any issues on the desktop app

    Off late I have noticed MS Teams interrupting my usage of the phone. When I am using another app, it will pop up asking me to sign in. Even while playing a game. It is a good tool to have as it allows me to stay connected with work, but that's all I want it for... Work. (While writing this review, the app interrupted me). Using Samsung S9+ with Android 10.

    The problem is that this app gets a lot of errors while logging into our test papers. We have to click on retry again and again which might take 30 minutes and having a limit of 1 hour( as per school guidelines) with the problem of the app we only get 30 minutes of time to complete our test. Having a population of 180 students during a test only 20 are able to join on time. Teachers also say "This is not our fault" then who's it is ours? The students?

  • Needs some help! Apr 21, 2020

    By Gracie Leigh GBMS
    Overall, it’s a pretty great app! I had to download it for school, and for about the first week it worked great. I could chat with friends, turn my work in ( after 1 hour of trying to figure out how to do that ), and even call and FaceTime friends and teachers. But about 2/3 weeks into using this app, the bugs started happening. I can’t call any people anymore without the app just giving out and kicking me back to home screen, or doing the same when I try to turn into assignments. Very disappointed, now I have to email my teachers instead of being able to properly turn it in ( which causes much more stress for them too! My school has 1,200 students! ). I really love the idea of the app, but the glitches have almost taken over the app for me, and makes it stressful to complete school work. Also, I feel as if the app should have a guide when you first download the app too! When I downloaded it, the app was very confusing and I didn’t know where everything was, and it took me almost an hour to find my way into assignments and turning them in. It was like being in a maze! ( not a pleasant experience! ). I honestly hope this app can improve! COVID-19 will probably not end anytime soon, and I will be stuck using this app for at least a year. I don’t hate this app, but I think there are some large improvements that need to be made, so please take this as constructive criticism!

    I'm a teacher and we are asked to use this app to take classes. I use this app through my smartphone. There is one major problem that I'm facing these days. When I click on "screen share" for sharing a video, there's no option to "include system audio", as a result, the video is shared with the students without any audio to it. It makes the teaching learning experience an extremely pathetic one. Kindly do something about it.

  • Best Microsoft app in a decade Feb 10, 2019

    By DougNdenver
    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)

    The app is good. Its interface is awesome. But I would like to address some issues here. One issue, I mean. Whenever I try to open the files tab other than in the general channel, it shows me that there are some files. And then it disappears and shows that there are no files in this tab. Please address this issue. Otherwise the interface if this app is top- class and I love the system of having different channels. As expected from Microsoft. Keep up the good work.

    This app has great functionality. There's not one feature I have ever needed but was missing from the app. That being said, there are some issues with performance. When in a call as an attendee, I often don't see the content being shared by the presenter, while all the other attendees can, and my internet connection is fine too. This has often caused some inconvenience. If it's fixed, 5 stars on the way!

  • iOS improvements May 4, 2020

    By BT 1000
    The iOS version of Teams isn’t great. There are too many places all over the screen to click on, and everyone sees your arm moving around the screen until you turn the camera off (which requires you to move your arm around the screen). Just put all the controls in one strip, which a user could move to either the top, bottom, or either side depending on preference. And keep the strip up all the time - having to tap on the screen to activate controls is super annoying. Additionally, one should be able see whoever is talking while looking at other things, so just put in a “half-screen slider “ that lets you scroll over to the attendee list or comments or files or whatever. And then make it so you could continue sliding either direction so you can either go back to a full video screen, or forward to a full screen of “other”. Doing this would make the app much better to use!

    Excellent app to run meetings and organize the calendar. Also has the plus of offering chats (if you or your company has the license to do so). Excellent for productivity. Gets the job done n As minimalist as it can be, sometimes can be very "heavyweight" and takes a lot of CPU and RAM all for itself. I don't had the problems with freezing and stuff, because of my phone "hardware handicap", but I know at least three people that complained about that.

  • Nice start; needs polish Jan 3, 2018

    By Jeratain
    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).

    It worked just ok for me. I had to use this for my online classes and downloaded it on my tablet. I really wish it was a bit similar to the pc version cause over here I have trouble finding the chat box which should be with the mic and call end buttons like there is in the pc version. In the tablet version you can't even edit the files you upload. So I had to do it on my pc. Another thing is video background. It is available on the laptop but not on my tablet. Just make the tab version similar

  • No notifications May 18, 2020

    By Alallen01
    This app has a lot of potential, but can be very frustrating. My main issue by far is the lack of notifications on my phone. I have both the desktop and mobile apps, but can’t get a single notification on my phone. I’ve turned all notifications off and back on both in the app and in my phone settings. I made sure there are no quiet hours, turned on notifications even when I’m active on desktop, turned on all notification styles in my phone settings, went through each team and chat to turn notifications on, and nothing. I get nothing. If I want to step away from my desk for a few minutes I have to bring my phone with me and constantly check it. I’ve done every troubleshooting tip, even though it’s all the things I already tried. Please fix this, it’s a big problem to not get notifications. Other than that, there’s sometimes a noticeable lag in getting messages or statuses updating. I for some reason don’t get calls on my phone, but I used to so I think that may be connected to the lack of notifications. No ability to put that your out of office as a status without putting an event in the calendar. How is there not an “off” status? The closest you can put is “away,” which is frustrating when you need to chat w someone and don’t know if they’re away for a few minutes or the rest of the day. Overall, it’s a decent app but several improvements are desperately needed.

  • iOS App Needs Updating Jul 23, 2020

    By kelseykren
    I’ve had major issues with my calendar section of the app never loading. It continually says it is “updating” but never finishes loading. I would also really love to have more features that mirror the desktop app. I can’t initiate using the whiteboard from a video call, but I can participate if someone else starts it. As a teacher, I'd love to use this. It is also really difficult to use video conferencing for teaching because I cant keep the chat open with the video screen at the same time. Please consider adding a pop out where the chat can come up next to the video like the desktop app. I also find it difficult that I can only use one note if it launches the app (which also lack features that are available on the desktop version, like the math function) rather than being able to use OneNote directly from teams. Lastly, I want to be able to manage my teams from my iPad app because currently some of the manage features are only available on the desktop version. Otherwise, the platform itself isn’t bad and some parts of the app, such as assignments, are exactly the same as the desktop version if I have them side by side to compare. I’m not sure why the app has less functionality than the desktop version, but with so many people using tablets nowadays, especially to teach from, please make them the same with all functionality.

    Can't believe Microsoft has produced such an unstable application. It seems the app was not load tested. It hangs a lot,restarts automatically even while on a call, doesn't let you type anything for a long period of time (restarting the app doesn't help as well). Furthermore , the app hangs all the other applications open in your desktop/laptop. It's pathetic.

    I am giving it two star because the feature of record is not working and we are unable to find the recordings. Also the problem is that when we are presenters we are unable to change the settings or to kick a attendee out of the meeting. At the same time when I am presenter my app is lagging to much. I hope you will find the solution to my problem. I am waiting for your response.

    Microsoft in general is horrible. It prompts me to change my password everytime I attempt to log in to any application. I can never have a smooth log in with Teams, Skype, or my microsoft account in general. Beyond frustrating to try and accomplish any work, it usually takes 25 to 30 minutes to play the new password rodeo with this company. Once I have a successful password, it is only a one time use.

It is very frustrating as while we are working in such a difficult situation the app does not respond. Do look at these problems. Now, I m not even able to see the content shared by teachers in the channel. I have even tried uninstalling it several times but it did not help. In the chat section I am not able to see by previous chats .
