Teams has really increased their video conference call quality in the past year and have made some great improvements to shared spaces. The app even works well for a mobile experience in managing my work project groups and conversations. I cannot stress how well this application is put together, and for managing small and varied groups of work it really helps get the job done.
My only difficulty with teams is that using it as a company wide platform means I have an abundance of active teams spaces and conversations are hard to manage or even maintain. Currently using another application (Slack) for a lot of the small “desk chats” I need for my team because teams feels a little too hectic to manage those alongside my larger projects.
It’s sad to see that any developer and even sysadmins are too lazy to be able to do their job. Instead, they want users to do their job for them, while collecting large salaries, because they don’t know how to make their apps and their website secure nowadays. They just want the salary and a social status to validate how wonderful they think they are. I work with sysadmins and developers, and they always use the excuse of “I’m told I have to do things like this…” because they don’t want to be the one who’s to blame for their actions… Stop being a lazy spoiled child and behave like a mature adult.
Overall the Teams app is useful way to stay connected while not at your laptop. However there needs to be improvements on the calls function. It’s too easy to accidentally call out when on the calls tab. This is especially frustrating when you were on a group call and have to apologize to multiple people. This can be remedied by including a prompt like iPhone has. Also it would be great if Teams phone numbers could receive and send SMS texts
I’m want to use the Teams call functionality as it easy to have one number for clients and colleagues. Please add these functionalities soon!!
All my Apple apps work (voice memo, video and Siri). However, since I updated the my iPad Pro to 14.6, the microphone stopped working in teams, and every other non Apple vendor application.
I was reading that the new “tracking” might have something to do with the problem. It’s obviously not a hardware error, and I’m sure it’s a Apple IOS hidden setting or bug. My teams still works on my iPhones, so it’s probably just the iPad Pro 11” 2nd Gen. My privacy setting is enabled for the microphone.
Please fix either Microsoft or Apple. I’m sure you will each blame the other.
I love this program in my work environment only because nothing like this existed in the work environment before and it’s unmatched in that market. That being said, Microsoft is only catching up to what online gamers have been doing for decades, collaborating and working together in massive scales virtually. Programs like discord etc all offer similar features with 1000x better performance. Microsoft teams is such a laggy system they risk the chance of a competitor coming out offering anything similar to being dropped purely over performance in the work environment.
Mainly of all most of the problems aren’t from internet connections, but rather from bugs and problems that occur from Microsoft. Especially when it happens to students that can’t join their class. Really for now, the only thing i can do is just tell teachers Teams is having problems when students have assignments due. The glitches an slowness the app has is immeasurable. It was really good at the start, but after 3 months passed, i’ve been experiencing the problem nonstop. I really hope Microsoft can up their game and fix his major issue.
Teams on the iPhone is "Ok", but it's a bloated app that continues to get bigger because there is no way to clean the caches it creates. The last update added a feature to devour approximately 10% of my battery every hour to sit in the background in hopes of a message coming in that it could tell me about. The overall usability is sightly worse than any other app in this space (most notably slack). But because you are likely using it because you have office365 for work or school, you'll use it any way.
I have been using teams for the past year and a half for school work. It has worked fine, with minimal bugs. But recently something that is VERY annoying started happening. Essentially the only way for me to open an assignment is to go to the assignments section. Not through a channel or messages. This may seem just like a petty thing, but this means I can’t see it when assignments are returned back. I hope I either figure out a way to fix this or it gets patched. Overall great app though.
I would give it 5 stars but the connection is ok but the thing is that when you leave the app it automatically turns off the camera which is annoying while ur in class since the teachers are gonna ask for it to be on but your working on word or something. I would suggest that they can make it so the camera doesn't turn which would help us students a lot. Or just make it so while in microsoft apps it stays on. Hope you read this.
It’s a really nice working hub with meetings and conversations..I wish they could pin the conversations like the desktop version does. And also create a draft conversation (for user itself only) to drop random memos rather than opening another window. Teams have been having a lot of connection problems recently too, can’t open the meeting and etc.
