Sanjay-Writes - Solid App for Team Collaboration
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.
Kate Cullen10 - Teams preliminary evaluation (first week)
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.
And i-oop sksks - Pretty good
Ok so we all know the global pandemic has bringed us to do everything at home. I am a student that uses this app DAILY and i really like it, but recently they did this new update that changed everything but not a lot because you could still understand everything that u have to do in the app so over all i liked the update. BUT there is this section on Microsoft Teams called assignments ( keep in mind that i have been using this app for YEARS)(*with no problem at all*) this section let you see all your assignments that you have to do and they’re due dates, how much they’re worth, etc. And this section was divided by every class, teams, group, etc. For example: if you went to assignments it would appear a list of all of ur classes, groups, teams, etc. And you have to click the class that you would like to see the assignments. I really liked how they were divided BUT now in the new update all of the assignments are put together and i REALLY DONT LIKE THAT because i like to keep everything very organized and i dont like that the assignments are all mixed together. Overall i like this app a lot and its very easy to use is just the little things that bother me a tiny bit.
Mannytech - The new form of communication
Our company started incorporating more advanced Microsoft products at the end of 2019, including Teams. What a time saver! No more jumping on planes and living around the notion that every meeting has to be done in person. From a global company stand point the first half of 2020 more effective meeting and forward progress on collaboration was done than any other year. Many things are integrated into Teams to make it as seamless as possible. Some of these include video meeting, screen sharing, multi screen control, calendar management, sync of calendar, multi device sync, controlled notifications, text message integration, user group creation, profile management, in meeting management like mute for those who don’t know when to mute microphone. In all very well thought out app. If you can’t do some of these things, it’s the administrative person that hasn’t given user rights. Watch out Apple because Microsoft has created one meeting management App for the modern work place so people can work remotely in this COVID era and any other future eras.
Ofuni - Underwhelming/frustrating user experience
Another title for this review might be “Jack Of All Trades, Master Of None.” This product is really not best in class for any product category. It’s not the best calendar app (Google’s is much better and easier to share with others), it’s not the best video chat app (Zoom is and will be the industry leader, at least until maybe Microsoft buys them out and buries them as they did with Skype), it’s not the best messaging app (Jabber or even wonky Slack are far better). It does do a fair job of integrating all these functions, but at a price. Teams really bogs down your system. For me, it’s at a point where I just never leave teams up and running. I only open it when someone else insists on having a Teams meeting. And it doesn’t play nice with other manufacturers’ email software such as Google or Yahoo Mail. The whole point of Teams is to force you to use Microsoft’s other products.
I also have concerns over privacy issues with Teams and Microsoft products in general. Teams has all sorts of nifty analytics on user behavior it can run for the owners of Teams software (i.e. the companies you work for). Unfortunately, as long as Microsoft continues to have corporate America in its back pocket, I don’t see any end in sight for this product soon.
lil happy liv - I love this app!
We went virtual over the last quarter of school and teams was awesome! It gave me notifications and the calendar was an awesome tool. I like how if you forget about a class it gives you a notification that tells you the class has started. And how the messages work like, well normal text messages. I also like how you can message your teachers about class work or anything! Maybe even just a thank you, and how you can message class mates but not strangers from other schools. I have never had a single lag! Oh and I like the new feature of being able to see more than four people on your screen. This works great as a collaboration app, an app for virtual meetings, even school! I am trying so hard to think of any criticism or something back right now, I am searching every inch of my brain. It’s like when you ask Siri and she doesn’t give you an answer. Well since there’s nothing bad to say, thank you for reading my “constructive criticism” comment.
Notobadmovies - Several improvements would be helpful
Having used multiple conference/online meeting applications, there are several items that have made Teams not the easiest to use. Several clients have had trouble logging in and easily using the application, can always say why I just relay their feedback. I also want to add new participants on the fly to calls/meetings by adding their emails but they’re not accepted if they are not ‘recognized.’ If using regularly for internal teams I’m sure it’ll run better but for external sales and presentations to new prospects it doesn’t run as smooth as I require. Several times when trying to launch conferences calls thru the Teams apps, participants couldn’t hear me. So then I had to dial in outside of the app but that created issues since I had already logged in online. It would also be helpful to be able to have a static conference ID for our business so I can use it regularly rather than having to schedule each call and use unique call/meeting log ins. We use Teams as it’s part of the MS applications and we want to keep everything under one umbrella, but there are improvements that would help to put it on par with other conferencing/online meeting applications.
JJ not twins - More things
Ok, I honestly hate school. But, I think this could use some updates. First, I think you should fix the quality! Idk if it’s my computer or the teachers computer but the quality on the videos are so blurry! I can’t handle it. Second, I think you should add more signs. Like the little signs you put like the hand, smile, clapping, heart and thumbs up. Add more! Like add a toilet so your teacher knows that means your at the bathroom. Third, add a timer for the messages to get deleted! Like after 3 days the post/message has been there then it gets deleted. This would be good so there’s not a bunch of messages/posts every where. And lastly, what if you could add a focus button. Like tap “Focus” and then the next person you click on the whole screen becomes that person. (Only on your screen though obviously) so we could just see the teachers screen or anybody’s screen you want to see. This could be good cause if you don’t want people to have there camera on you can just focus on who you actually want to look at. This would way more better and I hope you could add these.
stagevi - Love Teams! Needs a few things to be perfect!
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!
Khloe Vargas - glitchy.
i’ve had this problem where i can’t delete messages, i’ll click delete yet they will stay in the chat and just won’t go away. when i say this i mean in private chats i create with other people like classmates. my saved messages won’t work either, i press the purple bookmark to un-save them but all i have to do is refresh the page and they’re back. i think it might be because i deleted those messages, and so now they’re just stuck in this weird loop. i’m confused and i want to be able to use the chat normally again. also, sometimes when my teachers are trying to let the students into the meeting, it will not show us in the lobby. it’s happened twice and it takes time away from our lessons. PLEASE get this fixed. it’s so annoying and also i beg of you to add a feature to be able to permanently clear all chats with other people. like private chats that you create. the ones to talk with other students or mutuals. i understand that you could use other platforms but i have some student mutuals who i know only in school and intend to keep it that way, so please make that an option. there’s lots that needs to be done to fix this app and i’m very dissatisfied.
Romit.. - Best app for video conferencing
Really , this app deserves 10 stars . Very good app , I have installed both in my IPad and computer . It has many features like you can add background effects in your background, share your screen , record the call , add subtitles and invite participants and even guests! In chat , you can not only write messages but edit it like a champ! You can post in multiple groups , not allow people to reply and much more . You can also attach files and give praises and create a poll! in files column , you can upload files , make folders , download them , sync them , you can also make assignments and give grades ! and the new features just made me drive off ! The opening in new windows and together mode , raise hand , and quick meet option are just great! I don’t know why the foolish people are disliking this app , but I like it very very very very very very very very much.
Jeratain - Nice start; needs polish
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).
DougNdenver - Best Microsoft app in a decade
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)
No. I won't select another. - Indispensable
Outstanding. Quick to pick up. Everyone benefits from it; expert and participant alike. Excellent for exploiting visual, auditory, and participatory learning and collaboration.
In my experience as of April 22, 2020, multi-person editing (one person per paragraph) while on audio is a hysterically productive madhouse of rapid collaboration. It’s like watching Lionel Messi and the whole Barcelona football team do rapid-fire one-touch triangular volleys ending in a goal.
However, at the moment, PowerPoint allows only one person at a time per text box (wish it could be one per bullet), and for some reason I can’t edit Visio in Teams(wish I could). Best I can do at the moment is share my screen and watch someone else edit my file while I point out things with my mouse. Bummer, since Visio is my main tool for Business Process Modeling and Notation.
leftykiller - App crashes, no customer support.
I use it everyday as part of my job. Since Monday, 07FEB2021, it has frozen and crashed everyday. I have to uninstall and reinstall the app, and then it works fine. I’m forced to write this bad review because Microsoft has zero customer support. I went through the phone number, which led me to a website. Went through the bot assistant (which is worthless), and it said, “click here to talk to a real person.” I thought, “Great! Now I can get a trouble ticket in with the company.” I was very disappointed when it sent me to their public online forum, that they even warn you could have scammers posing as agents. This is extremely frustrating and I have given up. Once Microsoft fixes the bugs with their app, I will change my review. This is making me wonder why I pay a yearly subscription to Office 365 though, especially since it used to be that you could just outright buy the Office software suite, and you had better support where you could talk to a live person. Where is all of my money going Microsoft, if it’s not going to take care of your customers?
BT 1000 - iOS improvements
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!
BrianKy123 - Teams doesn’t work for me most of the time
Since august, I’ve been using teams for quite a while cause I have school. But when it doesn’t work, I get mad because I’m gonna be marked tardy for not showing up to a meeting on time. The problem is that the loading bar doesn’t stop, and when I tap to switch to a different chat, or the calendar or the teams, it freezes. And it freezes for a long time. I’ve tried to clear app data, I’ve tried deleting the app and reinstalling it, but nothing seems to work. I’ve looked up many ways on how to fix it, but it just doesn’t cooperate. I believe that I’m the only person having this problem since everyone else seems fine. But can I get some more suggestions on how to fix this? Overall, when I did use the app before, it was great. There were some minor problems, but those were fixed shortly after. Please tell me how to fix this, I can’t stand having to go to the website just to use teams.
Dancinut - Teams is great and the app is mostly great.
When my computer died and I started working from my iPad , I was worried I would loose a lot of my functionality in Teams as my organization works almost exclusively in Teams. I’ve been pleased to find that for the most part, the app offers the same functionality and even has a couple advantages. In a multi person call, the app will automatically shift from a multi view to a main speaker (talks more than 30-60 seconds without interruption) and back as needed. The down sides are mainly small such as you can’t have chat open and see the video feeds of others in the meeting at the same time. The only major piece of functionality that is missing is the ability to start a video call in a channel or a chat with yourself (which we use to record and share presentations.)
Developers: Please add this function to the app and you’ll have a 5 star rating from me. :)
Alallen01 - No notifications
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.
Kai not Karen - Baha
Not all these 8th graders coming to try and dent the 4.8 customer review with their “I hate school” reviews.
Anyways, this is a pretty cool app. It’s better than zoom, imo. It is tricky to get the hang of at first though, mostly because of the lack of training before the district had our school use this as our live classtime platform.
The only issue I have is recently it’s been seriously bugging out. Yesterday classes had to be cancelled and due dates delayed (which is cool, yes, but not for when we still have to do the lessons crammed into time later.) today, most of the students could get on but this morning the app on my ipad stopped letting me in. I’m about to see if it let’s me in now that I’ve redownloaded it, but if not I’ve lost my backup plan for when the school’s *global protect* stops working again.
Edit: no it did not let me in. Microsoft, please fix this, or if there is a way to troubleshoot that would be cool.
kelseykren - iOS App Needs Updating
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.
Gracie Leigh GBMS - Needs some help!
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!
Abmafe - Amazing Work from Home Flexibility
The best part of this app is that you can take work meetings on the go! If you’re like me and on countless work calls (most of which you’re not contributing too) get this app! Need to do the dishes but you have another work call where middle age white men just banter back and forth to hear themselves talk? Power up the teams app! Wanna go for a walk but you have yet another meeting that could’ve been an email? Power up the teams app! Need to go for a drive just to get out of the house? Power up the teams app! You can stream meetings through your Bluetooth app! Does your boss like to call you on Friday afternoon to make sure you’re working and not day drinking? Power up the teams app! Calls come through your phone. Cannot say enough good things about this!
Wavyrainbow81 - teachers can unmute you??
don’t get me wrong, i like teams. it’s really useful for our online classes but sometimes i get unmuted by teachers without me knowing. i find that disrespectful because it’s an invasion of my privacy at home. if teachers want us to participate in class then that’s OUR grade and participation. that’s on us. but having to go so low to unmute us without us acknowledging it is so messed up. everyone has personal things going on at home and i don’t like the idea of teachers being able to hear your personal stuff sometimes because they really do. i could be falling asleep just for one class and i’ll wake up unmuted with my phone or computer on my table and me sleeping on my bed and i’m always home alone too. there’s no way that’s fair. my grade is my grade , my fault. no excuse to listen in on what’s going on at my house. if i’m wrong that teachers can’t unmute you then there’s still something wrong with the mute button. i hope you see this as a wrong and fix this.
Ahlpybcde - I Hate Change! (Laughing)
I was...not happy... when I learned we were moving to Teams in my company. I don’t like change of any kind for the first 3 days. I reluctantly attended the initial training class on how to use Teams, rolling my eyes, thinking, ‘I will never figure this out.’ It’s been six months and I’m a huge fan! I can’t live without it! I use it on my laptop and I have the app. I’ve ventured out to learn more about all the other options on surveys and forms but am still learning. It took me about a day to figure out chat and navigate/participate comfortably in a chat. It took me 2-3 hours to learn how to successfully present a presentation and share screen w/co-workers. It took less than 30 min to set up my own Teams channel. Forms and other apps are taking a bit longer.
me,you and everyone else - Law firm
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
Hockeychic2 - iPhone image looks terrible to recipients
My company decided to use Microsoft Teams exclusively. I’ve used the app in both iPad and iPhone. The iPad app seems to be OK, but one of features that Teams needs to fix is that you can’t “chat” as the video conference is going on. If my colleagues are on a laptop and sending messages, I don’t see it. I am able to see the conversations after I’ve ended the video conference. Also the iPhone X (iOS 13.5.1) video only seems to work in portrait. And what looks OK on my end, looks horribly up close for my recipients (think funhouse convex mirror) with an extended wide side view. When I set the iPhone in landscape, the others see me turned 90º to the side still hideously up close. I literally need to hold the iPhone at arms length and lean back before others can see me at a normal size (but now I have the joy of looking out to the conferencees with a double chin 🙁). Microsoft fix this!
Mover and a Shaker - Sales Rep
I have never written a review on any app even the ones I like. Don’t ask why, however I had to write one on teams because it’s healed a lot of unneeded frustration in the sales entry aspects of my career. I have been able to talk to internal customer service people without waiting I the cue on the phone for a simple fix. Reach back out to the same service people if the previous issue is unresolved instead of trying to find “Nemo” in an ocean of service people when calling back. I’ve been able to see and understand my organization’s structure and look up managers and key organizational people. Also I’ve strengthened more working relationships within my organization. Teams is an effective and efficient systems and tool which has even More to offer than I care to type.
jclayton24 - Actually Impressed
I’m not one to stop and take the time to write a review, but if an app has ever deserved some praise it would be this one. My opinion is based solely on a few weeks of heavy use of Teams since COVID-19 has forced our crew to rapidly transition to working from home, so there could still be a slight chance that what I say fails to take all circumstances into account.
That being said, I really have enjoyed Teams as a collaborative tool. I’ve organized and participated in meetings with multiple users (usually 3 or 4, up to 10 on a few occasions) and the Teams interface has functioned flawlessly almost every time.
Screen-sharing with audio communication, video conferencing and group presentations are the features I’ve used the most, and they are all user-friendly and simple to execute. The multi-user meetings with content sharing even worked well on my iPhone (this was something that truly impressed me). Plus there’s a “give control” option that you can use if you need hands-on help trouble shooting an issue on your device (fyi - I’ve only used this feature on our company’s Macs and PC’s, haven’t tried it on a phone or tablet).
In summary: a few weeks in, and I’ve got nothing but praise for Microsoft Teams
apalko - Surprised
I don’t write a lot of reviews but have to say this app / service is slick. Our office uses MS 365 and generally detest MS software but figured I’d try this out to see if it was worth while for the team to use. I am actually surprised with how easy it is to use for chat and really surprised at the video quality. You can make voice calls and leave voicemails too! Sharing files and having team discussions in separate channels has been a blessing to my email inbox.
The only challenges experienced have been memory usage and battery drain. This app will gobble up every bit of free memory and battery power it can get its hands on. Since I’m on a laptop that’s no bueno¡
Overall, the service is stable, feature rich, and has great iOS apps. Again, really surprised me.
MTF, Esq - Cannot use chat feature
I am a public defender in NYC, and the court system has moved to this platform to conduct remote court appearances. Since early November, many members of my organization (as well as many prosecutors) have been unable to access the chat feature when we sign in to the courtrooms. This is incredibly detrimental to our work, because the chat is used for signing up cases and other essential communication. Sometimes I can use a “workaround” by signing out of Teams and joining as a guest, but even this is hit-and-miss and it deprives me of most of the other helpful features of the app. Frankly, I wish the courts had stuck with Skype for Business. I wasn’t having these problems then. I have been told by my organization that the problem is on Microsoft’s end and they are working on it. It has been two and a half months and I have not seen any progress on the issue or heard any updates about when we might expect a solution.
newshound66 - iPad app still only shows 3 other participants during a videoconference
Good video quality with no lag compared to Cisco Webex and Zoom, but it’s frustrating that the iPad app only shows 4 faces at a time, one of which is yours. Unlike Webex and Zoom, you don’t even have the option of swiping to see other participants’ videos. So you only see 3 other faces, only one of which switched to various people talking. The other 2 faces strangely remained constant during a video conference with 9 other people.
Despite spending a lot of time Googling, I did not come across any article indicating that the iPad app still had this limitation as of mid-July 2020 despite articles back in April 2020 that MS had increased the view to 9 people (which I now realize is limited to the desktop app).
In any event, kudos to Microsoft to allowing unlimited video conference times for free accounts when Webex has reverted to a 50-minute time limit and Zoom has always had a 40-minute limit.
Melana :) - Good, but lots of glitches
I’ve been using teams for a while, almost a few years, and I think that it’s a really good app for school, work, or whatever you use it for. I mostly use it fo online school, and it help organize a lot of my work. The only thing is that there are frequent glitches, and it makes it hard to do my work. Most of the videos that I get sent don’t load, and it used to be a once-in-a-while thing, but now none of the videos load. The space is left blank. I’ve tried many things, and none of them work. It also crashes randomly, and more frequently goes to a blank screen, freezes up, or just crashes while I’mi n the middle of something. But other than that, I think that teams is a very good app, and would recommend it if they would fix some of the glitches.
seanpatrickm11 - Teams Review
This app is pretty cool. How it differentiates from Skpe and others you can look at the screen sharing function allowing the person you are talking not only view your screen but take control of yours. The mobile function is easy and functions just as good as WhatsApp & others. Video & sound quality is good. Security is solid as you can set up a pin to log on so personal info is safe. My only gripe is the inability to delete messages. Maybe I just haven’t figured out how yet. Overall it’s great for businesses to keep in touch with employees. For example I’m in Dubai & I communicate with colleagues in Iraq, the US and Afghanistan seamlessly. We had over 150 employees on one call and the connection remained strong. Most definitely recommend A+++
amsllb - A serious downgrade from StaffHub
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.
dasprague - Functionality seriously lacking
Unlike the Teams app for PCs, this app is brain dead. You can’t hide chats. If all the places you want to hide irrelevant material, it’s on you mobile phone. The General page is also a waste of space, and there is no way to customize it for your users so it goes directly to files or chats. At this point it is easier to use text and email for both messages and content. The only useful thing it has that the PC app and web interface doesn’t is the ability to show if a user has access to Teams or not, but since chat is hobbled already, it’s meaningless. The only thing I find helpful is the calendar because I don’t sync my work calendar with my phone because of the way it integrates with my personal calendar and this keeps it separate. Microsoft really needs to work on these apps before rolling them out. And functionality should match the PC app. You may have to do it differently, but the functionality should be the same.
jordanjpayne - Overall I’m a fan
Chat and group chat options - functionally Teams is very similar to Slack but I think integration across many other Office apps (OneNote, etc.) gives Teams an edge. The UI does feel less slick, more dated and somehow less snappy than some other players in this space - I’m not sure how to articulate what i find problematic or underwhelming about the interface or it’s overall design but it just feels inherently corporate and less personal, perhaps more personality and personalization options could improve this aspect of the software, fun avatars, voice memos, active background images, logo and brand integration spring to mind. With Web, Desktop App for Mac and PC as well as mobile App offerings I can be accessible everywhere to my teams and the video conferencing and call options are pretty slick so far as well. Good job overall M$ ;)
B.Trivedi - Teams delivers on the promise of workforce optimization!
I am incredibly passionate about Teams and how it delivers an optimized & integrated experience for teams to collaborate across geographic and office boundaries.
With integration into outlook, emails, conf calls, video calls, chat sessions, document sharing, message boards, etc. is all integrated in 1 Platform! Use these features interactively to see the power of the teams
For example, I’ll be on a video conf call, when I decide to quickly share my screen, and pull up a document from teams library. My team and I can then send chat messages to other colleagues, while conferencing in 1 team member to ask a question. All this occurs without ever leaving the platform!
weather1026 - Pretty Poor Tool
Microsoft continuous to attempt to consolidate their various office functionality in a more collaborative environment using cloud technology as the basic storage/distribution platform. However, the design of TEAMS software is so incredibly poor that using it is not only frustrating, but also makes individuals quite unproductive.
Teams essentially looks like a OneNote application integrating storage, real-time communication and basic folder organizing capabilities. However, this quickly thrown together tools do not make teams more productive. It is at best a location where everybody can ‘dump’ his/her stuff into a common place. There is no flow, no prioritization, no transparency on what is currently ongoing. Unless you are constantly addicted to this tool and know every entry that is going on, good luck finding anything or catching up.
I found TEAMS software to be completely inadequate for productivity improvements of teams. This space awaits a true break-through innovation beyond, chats, folders and tabs.
7coops - FEEDBACK
It’s really good and and actually amazing. I wish the chat feature (which is really good) can be better and more “fluid” like emails that are received in outlook and composing a chat is like “composing” an email: Because sometimes if you have multiple chats going at once I feel it’s easy to respond to the wrong chat. I don’t like the “typing bubbles” that shows up when someone is relying/ typing to a message. It gives me anxiety seeing those typing bubbles. I don’t like them. I’m sometimes who is a professional but also struggles with dyslexia, so the bubbles don’t make people like me feel so good. The “type new message” are needs to be bigger and when the user hits “enter” on the keyboard, I wish it when to the next line instead of sending the message. TEAMS is a great tool and it’s the future but it must be more user friendly.
ejcHorse27 - Assignments Tab Update
Before the recent update, it was an overall easy app to use. Sometimes the app crashed, but it was pretty isolated.
Before the update, we were able to view our assignments from all of our classes in one place, however with the new update we have to select a class and we are only able to view assignments from that one class. This is a big inconvenience and created difficulty for many, and make sit much easier to miss out on assignments, especially as online learning has now started due to the coronavirus. It wastes a lot of our time having to filter through all classes and it makes it much easier to miss out on assignments.
Please take action on this as soon as possible, it is much more efficient to organise and plan out your day with online learning and homework when all assignments are shown in one place.
calbearspolo - Good potential / terrible execution
This ap, especially with the power and integration with Microsoft, has the potential to be great, but consistently falls down on the execution side. A few issues:
1. Call history, voice mail, chats, and other screens perpetually are stuck loading. Restarting, reinstalling, force quit all do nothing to help.
2. Video feeds are inconsistent/fail for group calls if you try to navigate the ap or switch screens at all. Audio will continue, but the video gets cut.
3. Multiple notifications for the same events -- if you miss a call, it shows up in the calls (when that works, see previous) and activities, with no logical way to dismiss the notification. Unlike ios call log, where all you need to do is open the screen to acknowledge the missed call, there are multiple menus to navigate for each one to mark as read / seen.
4. When the call history fails (per #1), the ios call history is also affected, meaning you can't find or make return calls at all from the ap or operating system. Hope you have a backup way to see who called you.
I can't give this one star, as it's not the lowest of the quality aps I use, but definitely a failing grade is warranted. If my organization didn’t tie everything through Microsoft and its office suite, I would definitely not be using.
nickname6942 - Excellent tool but needs some work
Teams is a very useful tool to get my work done and communicate with people in your workplace. However teams can be a little frustrating. I use teams for school and when I’m going through assignments I hate just being able to look at one class’s assignments at a time it would be really helpful if I could check more classes at once and not have to wait for it to load another classes assignments since I wake up in the morning scanning all the assignments and sometimes I switch between classes to see which I should do first to manage my time. The teams app is also laggy when ever I go through posts. I think the teams app is great but I don’t think it deserve the five stars although I would put 4.5 if I could but it’s leaning towards 4.
Mr.T Math - Lagging behind others in features
I really like the Teams video conferencing; it’s really the smoothest and least freezing option. However, the features are constantly lagging behind others. It took forever to allow more than 4 people at a time when others allowed many. When on a laptop signed in as a guest, a user cannot be pinned. And with the iOS app, I can’t believe there is still no background feature. It is often a requirement for privacy concerns (blur is available, but does not hide enough to satisfy privacy needs—though it should be an easy extension from blur to background). Not having the background feature limits the use ability of Teams. Please keep up and make available the features that are causing many users to use other platforms when we would rather use Teams.
OMG_123*# - MUST READ!!!
Hello there! I hope your having a nice day! I would like to share my opinion about, MICROSOFT TEAMS! I have had this app for 1 and a half years, and I have gone through some issues and some suggestions on it. I would really like to be able to upload a video more than a minute long into the files on A IPAD! Also no one can hear my audio when I share my screen to the class on A IPAD! I don’t know if you can do it on iPad, but it would be SPECTACULAR if it would happen. Mainly in iPads all the problems occur for me. Like backgrounds, screen share, and more. Also I would really like you to put back private chat. Life in teams was a lot better with that, so I can talk to my teacher PRIVATELY, instead of always going on a conference. This was my opinion on MICROSOFT TEAMS! Thanks for reading! :)
O'Snack - A 99% bug free app, amazing programming!
This app is so needed if you have a windows OS, or just even if your company or business uses any other windows programs. It makes file sharing with co-workers a breeze, never seems to crash, and has a very intuitive interface which makes adapting your whole company to this program so easy.
The 1% of bugs I’ve found is in the video call/conference call function, like losing audio or visual feeds occasionally (I use cheap logitec mics and cameras so that might be the issue there) but I think the faults are very understandable considering the volume of people using this function post-covid. I would still highly recommend over other video chat programs like Zoom.
Kylieshub1017 - Completely Acceptable! (Problem)
Hello! I’d just like to write a review, on the new update. I use teams for school, and work. Today it has updated.. I’m not sure if it’s part of the update, or might be a bug. I had a problem today on a teams meeting, saying.. “Getting Details..” A few minutes later it said “Please try again later.” I had my teacher call me in, since it didn’t work. I had to transfer my meeting from my phone, to my laptop. I love how you can do that, but not with that problem. Please, fix this!
If I have any further questions, or concerns.. I’ll make sure to edit this. I don’t get why this happened. Again, please fix it! This review is being written quickly, to possibly have this problem fixed. Please, respond! Thanks!
dopefosh2113 - Teams for construction
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.
ALIEN55 - I give it props for working mostly.
Ok the app does its main job for me tells me when I work but I don’t get notifications about my schedule and why the heck isn’t there an option to see my schedule when I first open the app it’s annoying that I have to click on the notification to then see when I work and when I click on the time I should just be able to see who is working and who isn’t working. I have to go through so many unnecessary steps just to find that info. Look I get it this app is new bud go look at hotschedule’s app and take a page from their book. Actually take a whole chapter from their book. I don’t just write bad reviews like most people do. Fix these silly little issues and I’m happy to change my opinion. Granted this is really the only feature I use in the app so I’m sure it’s a great app otherwise but this is my main concern.
cupcakestardust - Only one flaw
I LOVE this app! It is great because I use my mobile device for meetings and I can use my computer for work so, I like that it can be on mobile/Apple devices but the only flaw is, IT SHOWS THAT I HAVE NOTIFICATIONS WHEN THERES NOT SUPPOSED TO BE! Which drives me crazy! Everything inside the app is fine, (but I recommend changing the “you have to make people presenters when they enter the meeting” to “let people be presenters all the time”. The only thing annoying is the notification thing. And when I am on my Lock Screen, there are no notifications but when I am in my home screen then there is a number in the corner of the app logo. Thank you for reading this response, have a great day/night.

Sbanot - What I have been waiting for
For about four years I have been looking for a collaboration system to get away from the burden and inefficiencies of email. I have been using Whatsapp for work projects but then I was introduced to TEAMS!
So well thought out, adaptive and easy to use. The desktop, iPhone & iPad layout are all user friendly.
Our organisation has only been using it for four weeks but it is already streamlining workflow, response times are shortened and there is improved engagement amongst project members. Well done Microsoft.
JamesTClolXR - Just one major bug
This app is really helpful and I love it. But for some reason no matter what image I use I can't change my profile picture. I have even tried doing another way which was updating the profile picture on office 365 since teams and office 365 are connected and nothing has worked. I try to do this at least once a weak but nothing happens. Even when I press that check for updates button . I still doesn't register anything. Also when you update the profile picture though office 365 all the office 365 apps related to it are supposed to update their profile picture and none have updated. When i go into the edit profile picture settings in office 365 it shows that I have saved and I has updated the photo. I have had a look on the internet and I have found that a lot of people are having exactly the same issue. So I would nice if you could try and fix the bug. Because that would be a really good feature to have when you have multiple people in a meeting and you will be able to straight away tell who it is. Apart from that the app is perfect. That is why I am giving it 4 out of 5 stars.
lana😁😁 - (PLEASE READ🥺)!
I use this app for school and ever since I’ve used it it has been draining my iPad battery I used to only put my iPad on the charger every night or maybe once during the day but with using Microsoft teams I have to put my iPad on the charger after every class has finished, which this is not just only ruining my iPad battery life but also making my iPad extremely hot that I can’t even touch it properly, and not to mention since I’ve been using this app my iPad now goes off between 50% to 30% which it should be going off at 5% or 10% so this app ruins my iPad battery to the point where I have to buy I new iPad I’m going to be extremely angry!
So now I’m having problems with this app logging me in and out of calls when I’m in them so I’m missing out on important information for school, and not to mention with my battery draining really fast with this app it is also making my iPad really laggy so if you don’t fix this ASAP and this RUINS MY IPAD you will BE BUYING ME A NEW IPAD - thanks
Mauonnaise - Missing feature?!
To start with, teams is an amazing app and very convenient for work and schooling. However, in the screenshots used to show off the app in the App Store we can clearly see a chat button and working chat feature. However, once the app is downloaded this feature is nowhere to be seen, and I even had the feature for about a week when it was first implemented before it randomly disappeared with no warnings or updates. This feature was one of the most useful features and I see absolutely no reason for it not to be there. Until the chat option is re-added, there is blatant false advertising for this app using a feature that is no longer included.
* daily user - Missing so many simple things!
This app has real potential however is missing so many simple (yet important) things. For example you can only see 4 people in a video conference. The changes to capacity to enable you to see more than 4 people have been “in the works” for over a year with no updates! The same goes for changing the profile picture in a group chat. A year ago Microsoft said this was “officially in the works” but has still not managed to provide this function! You can’t create a ‘chat’ that is linked directly to a ‘team’ (you can only “post” in the team or, create an entirely separate - not linked - chat and add the same people). All of these functions seem so basic and yet don’t yet exist! Wasted potential really.
SN classic app user - Great but we expect more...hence only 2 star.
It’s a great app, but there are little things still not done properly. This last update on my 11 Pro Max makes the app runs where sluggish, have to press on things twice sometimes for it to register.
- Bluetooth issues - changed my audio to iPhone half way through meeting from AirPods and it doesn’t allow me to change back to AirPods (in fact just doesn’t display AirPods option in audio again.
- before joining the meeting if I have mute on, it’s auto unmutes after I’ve joined the meeting? Annoying bug.
- no pinned chat functionality. I don’t understand why it can’t be replicated from desktop app? If you have pinned chat in desktop app, it should reflect on mobile app.
James # - Excellent app, just needs one minor addition
The whole entire Microsoft teams service is an absolute game changer, and is much like having Skype for business & Slack integrated into the same application. Screen sharing is lightning fast. I cannot fault the collaboration side of this service!
The only thing which is quite frustrating, is the inability to have more than four people on screen when in a video chat. To make matters worse, you can’t swipe to a new page to see any other connected caller's video. Sometimes this can be problematic if a few people are talking at once and the active speaker who you want in the foreground doesn’t automatically show on screen.
I was very happy to see this was updated on the macOS app and the Windows app. If this feature was added into the iOS app also, 100% would be a 10/10 piece of software which doesn’t compare to any other platform or service.
Minor issue, but aside from that, it’s an excellent service provided by Microsoft
DMCCDO - Teams is excellent
Teams is a revolution in collaboration, the functionality is much more effective than the old SharePoint. The MS Office suite is very well integrated, you can have lots of different people working on the same file at once, you can chat directly about the collaboration in the file.
The meeting functionality is great, call quality is excellent and having the App on your smartphone means you’ll never miss a meeting again.
If your team isn’t using MS Teams yet, then you’re working in the ‘stone age’, email is dead, persistent chat is now!
mattjenb - Battery Drain and no auto dark mode
The functionality and feature parity of Teams is really good across platforms. But the quality of the apps is pretty poor.
Whilst I can handle some rough edges the main deal breaker right now on iOS is the battery drain - it’s terrible, my iPad was burning through it’s battery (usually it’s great) and when I checked the battery usage it was about 70% Teams which was very unreasonable since I’d only had a short audio call and otherwise the odd text chat.
My other general annoyance is the theme switching to dark is very clunky - it crashes and reloads the app by design! And this doesn’t seamlessly switch like most native apps when iOS switches.
Overall I wish some more care was put into the native iOS app - that battery drain is a serious issue - I need to use this on the go with confidence and I can’t right now.
Evan Thornley - Revolutionised our Organisation
Thank goodness we moved to Teams about 9 months before COVID! Our levels of document collaboration and use of video chat tied into our filing and messaging has been life changing for the business. The more we rely on it the more we need better training and structure to our use however as things can get lost (documents in particular) between Chat and Files - this is about how you use it not a flaw in Teams itself
Gavsta14 - Awesome... but better notification handling is needed
Love the app. It’s awesome. Works great across multiple platforms with great features... but...
The notifications on mobile can get pretty overwhelming. Particularly when you’re not using the device.
For example when your IM’ing from desktop you still get EVERY notification on your phone. You can sleep the phone notifications but you then need to remember to re-enable them.
General notification handling could be improved for message flood conditions too. I am part of several larger organisation group chats.
When there are multiple people discussing in the thread there can be dozens of notifications in short succession.
An implementation similar to FBMessenger would be great - you get a sound and pop up for the first one and then any notifications comin in short succession (say within 30s-1minute since the last notification) are delivered quietly.
flumoxxed - Great but needs couple of improvements
The calendar section needs to be able to show old calendar appointments. That would have be having to switch to Outlook.
Another issue is how when I use my phone for a call, it massively zooms in on my face so the person on a PC on the other end of the call gets a closeup. This happens to everyone I know. It needs to be more mobile friendly and out or have a visible on-screen guide on how far away the phone should rest so other call participants aren’t talking to a nose.
Wiebsomean - Flexible Teams
If you delve into Teams’ advanced features, you quickly discover a huge range of useful add-ins that let you do just about anything from within the Teams UI. It’s almost an entire operating system specifically aimed at collaboration with your colleagues. And the best bit is my emails have dropped from hundreds to tens per day as well. It is taking over from Excel as my all time favourite piece of software, and I’ve been using Excel since 1996.
Blue Ozzy - It’s ok for small meetings, HOWEVER...
...trying to run larger meetings, you can’t (choose to) see more than FOUR participants!
Checking chat groups/microsoft forums re this problem, which has been brought up many times over the last year, NOTHING but vague promises have eventuated.
Another thing, some participants don’t want to use their cam due to data limitations, and prefer to have a profile picture.
Should be easy to do? FORGET IT!
1. Tried to upload a profile picture, only to be told it’s the wrong format, try again. Tried jpeg, bmp, png, gif, small or largish - NOTHING!
2. No guide as to what went wrong or what format, size to use - NOTHING!
For a company flogging a ‘communication’ app, your communication skills fall very short of the mark - FAIL!
We’ve tried to run modestly sized meetings with 10-30 participants for work. Nobody’s been happy with the experience. So it looks we’ll be dumping it.
Time to move on...
PS Skype (another Microsoft takeover that went downhill) has the same problems
Waylon_69 - Needs to be updated with meetings functionality
With teams replacing the Skype for Business app on the desktop, this app needs to be updated with the appropriate functionality.
Right now, if I switch over to using only teams on my desktop I end up receiving all my notifications on my phone with Skype for Business. I can’t delete Skype for business because the teams iOS app has no functionality to join meetings.
coolgirlox - This is a great app for work!
I am 10 years old and I use this for education, this has been very useful during remote learning and I have contacted all of my friends during this time! This app is good for work and school, and I love how there is emojis. I recommend this for students or adults to use this for texting and talking with friends it work mates.
I give this a 5 star rating! I hope there are more updates for Teams!
eduteinment - We love it!
My small team of 5 is quite impressed by the app and the product in general. Meetings, chats, notes, wiki. The only thing we don't have is screen sharing which I hope is in the pipeline. We were never keen on signing up to another collaboration software because. HipChat was ok but not good enough for us. Never tried Slack and probably won't ever have to now that this is making our work lives so much easier.
4.5 stars because there's no screen sharing yet. Otherwise, it's a 5 from me!
alan.the.eternity - Doesn’t support MFA & Azure conditional access policy well
I have a situation that my Teams client on iOs14 kept getting blocked by azure conditional access policy that requires both MFA and limited access to Teams service and its dependencies EXO, SPO, Skype4B. The login failed to pass the conditional access policies because the Teams-T4L application only recognised single factor authentication and got blocked by MFA requirements at Microsoft Teams Login Service.
Meanwhile on the same phone using Safari browser I can connect to Teams web app successfully.
Way to go!
NLY68 - How Teams Meeting works for us
While we had Teams on our system prior to Co-Vid, we only utilised it for National catch ups. Since WFM inCo-Vid, we utilise it throughout our business internally over telephoning. Our non-centralised team members report they feel closer to the team and more part of it then when we worked in the office. It’s easily accessible and ensures that all team members are work ready in a WFM situation.
Ima fixer - No microphone setting to allow use on iOS
Video and voice calls not available on iOS 12.4.6 iPhone 6s. Attempting to make a call (voice or video) provides a prompt to settings to allow access to microphone. When pressing the settings button, it takes me to Teams settings and there is no microphone setting which can be changed. In fact there are no settings under Teams settings section. Going another way to microphone settings via iOS settings also shows the app has not even requested microphone use. Therefore the app is essentially just a texting platform, which is useless. Tired of being R&D testers for large corps.
Bukz - Great app but battery hungry!
This app is really good for collaborating with my team, in and out of the office. A major complaint is that it consumes a lot of battery, even when I’m not using it. An example: my iPad has teams installed but I leave it at home whilst I’m out at work. I would find that the battery has drained overtime by quite a lot and I’d notice that Teams had consisted of 80% of that battery usage. Microsoft, I urge you to fix this issue as this app is great but this really needs to be better optimised for mobile devices.
Bababarghi - Need notification on multiple devices
If you run TEAMS on multiple devices of yours, as soon as the first one get the notification message, other devices won’t show you the notification message assuming you have seen it already on your first device. Well, that’s not desired because I am not always in front of my laptop but I do always carry my phone with myself.
Please broadcast notification messages to all devices. Or at least give the option to users to choose this feature or not.
Eg3097 - Zoom wins on video meetings!
I am really enjoying Teams having just set it up for our company. My one great disappointment is that you can only see 4 people on a group video. It is really difficult to read the mood of the meeting when you can't see everyone. This is where Zoom has a huge advantage in being able to see multiple people on one screen and everyone in the meeting by swiping through the screens. Unless this is addressed soon we will have to use Zoom for our team meetings.
christian806 - Good but could be great
Just started using this through work. Have the phone app and windows App. Have no major complaints.
I’d like to see the ability to add custom backgrounds in video conferences and also turn off the auto away status. I’d really like to set my own status and keep it. Also when my laptop is closed and opened again, it seems to disconnect and will not reconnect until I open the window and let it load.
bigmange1957 - Teams
I have been using teams know for several weeks . The more I use it the more I seem to understand different aspects. It was hard at first. I wish that we could see more people. I may suggest there is a lot of stuff posted abut teams .. some of it is very detailed and hard to understand for most . Try and keep it simple .
ChanceyMax - Still buggy with iPhone but not bad
Developers need to acknowledge that there are still issues joining a meeting set up and active on a laptop/desktop interface for audio only via iPhone. Many times my colleagues and I connect only to hear silence. We have reported this through multiple channels to no avail... we have also experienced this problem outside our work IT environment, so we suspect it is an app problem and not on our side.
Jen wit - Access to channels
Hi have been using teams for our online Med scenarios.
I produce teams - 6 Groups of students to manage patients.
We produce documents etc with these discussions.
I have general meeting open alll day as we move from channels in small groups to webinars.
Is it possible to be able to access more than 4 channels. As I move between team channels at various points of the day to assist the student teams in their discussions.
Dinvic - CPO
MS Teams is probably one of the smartest / user friendly transforming business tools I’ve used. Only started with MS Teams 8 days ago. I’m working remotely as is the entire world, and the level of connection I’m experiencing is unbelievable. I’ve had no training, we had to implement immediately and we were up and running in a day. Thank you! I really mean it Thank you!
phantom34588bkf - Awesome!
This app is great! I have used it for school and it works really well. The loading is usually very fast and it doesn’t glitch a lot. Many features are there. The original one was really lousy, but this new one can let you see 9 or every person and allows you to raise your hand. This app is highly recommended.
SBNivi - Screen layout
Very happy with this app!
Few things Teams could improve:
- The layout of the people who appear in the screen, we should be able to choose the ones or see them all,
- Connect team with Microsoft forms, so people could answer questions instantaneously while during presentation
Hinemam1233 - So helpful!
Since covid-19 has spread over nationwide, schools in Australia as well as in other countries have closed and students are now doing online schooling. This app has been the most helpful app throughout my isolation journey. I can keep in touch with classmates as well as my teachers. Love this app, would recommend it to schools who haven’t used this for online schooling.
Gholi googli - Points
Good app- one improvement point could be showing the path on the top of the page even if the doc is open in web mode so when user closes the page the doesn’t get lost- traceability is a the weakness of this tools and also moving documents should be easier
Razik Ahamed - User status issue
The user status doesn’t get synced with the status set in the desktop application or the outlook calendar. One would expect that the app shows the user as available only when he actively looks at the mobile app and when the app is minimized or closed, it would show the status set in the desktop app or calendar. But no, that’s not how this works and more often the behaviour is kind of random too.
C-C-T - Great app. Better mobile file management needed
I am finding the MS Teams application To be incredibly useful. The collaboration features make working with the rest of the team so easy and it’s increasing productivity across all departments. My only criticism would be that the mobile application doesn’t have full featured file management.
Mr_burgess - Feedback option
Could not find a feedback option so unfortunately had to write it this way in the review section. Would be nice to be able to edit wiki pages within the app, whilst on the move. Have to resort back to using the pc version to make the changes.
ambient amy - Please FIX the upload photo problem
It’s 2020, we shouldn’t be unable to upload a profile photo. can you please fix this? I read that this has been going on at least since 2018. Can’t upload photo from computer or iphone. please improve User experience.
someone you don't know 10 - Very good
I really like teams and it is really useful. I use it for online learning and it has everything really. Meetings, assignments and ya. But one thing sometimes it does’nt load properly. Also please add backgrounds, they have it on the computer, but not on iPad, it would really be cool if you added backgrounds, because now you can only blur. Have a nice day! Hope this was useful!
Jozef imrich - Open, Sunlight and Democratic
A big challenge for many agencies and their groups or teams is keeping everyone in the loop and making everyone feel that they know what is going on. With Teams, this becomes so much easier.
Team is also more reliable as communication tool than Jabber of CISCO dysfunction
MarioLa75 - File uploads
Typically I promote teams app to everyone within my organisation and outside and rate you 10/10. So why 1 star? It’s bern 2 years since request was made in one of your forums to create ability for files to be uploaded into files structure directly through the app. Any updates on this feature?
Shaktijaan - Not Slack but Slick!
Having used Slack for some time I thought it would be hard to switch to Teams. It wasn’t at all! It’s slick and intuitive with features being released often to compete with the likes of Slack. Given it’s part of the 365 ecosystem everything is integrated so it’s slick and simple.
Well done Microsoft.
Sydney.Boy - Wonderful App which delivers value
Teams really simplifies the workflows and processes and the user experience is really sophisticated and standard for all the channels.
I really like the part of joining the meeting straight from the email to the conference bridge (no need type any phone numbers and meeting ids etc) ! Keep up the good work ‘Teams’ Team!
Tim the Great - Great app!
It’s a great cross platform messenger....much less buggy than some others that I won’t name. I like that you can also sync up your work or school address books....makes getting in touch with colleagues a lot easier and without giving up too much personal information.
ipradeepkrsharma - A complete collaboration
I’m fan of Slack but due to raised concern on integration with existing office applications, this was a limitation. After started using Microsoft Team experience is so rich that no one is missing single conversation and we are more in touch and collaborate ever before. Every office application integration is well established with enterprise security guidelines.
Not-happy-jan! - Excellent
....but would like to be able to sign into two organisations at the same time and switch between them. At present it doesn’t appear that you can do this. You have to sign out of one and sign back in to the other.
Thejameschew - Misses the mark
*NOTE* this is an iPad only review: Teams COULD be such a great app on the iPad. However, letting it down in so many areas are the lack go-to features found on the Desktop version. Especially with the advent of iPad Pro, it feels disingenuous to have an feature-lacking version of Teams that forces you to go back to the desktop if you want to access certain features.
Nightbloomthesavage - Really good!!
The only flaw i see in MS Teams is the fact that it is frequently lagging and crashing, but i put 5 stars on anyway because i really like the app. If i could give it 100 stars, i would! Only suggestion is maybe add more reactions, such as confused or facepalm. But yeah, i salute you developers!!
SammyButt - A bug.
there's a bug on the app and when I open side tab on accident in assignments it crashes, I have to restart the app and I lose all progress. I’m in year 5 and sometimes haven’t been able to hand anything in. Please fix this
sammmmysl - Great way to connect in while working from home!
With the craziness of the COVID-19 situation, Teams has helped me maintain connections with my work colleagues while we all work from home and are basically self isolating! Easy to use and good to be able to use on my laptop or phone.
banjchicapplpye - Much better now
It used to be VERY frustrating that you can only see 4 people but so much better with new update. Works well, some features aren’t as good compared to Zoom; you can’t do reactions, there isn’t a temporary unmute and you can’t swipe across to see the rest of the people: that is MOST important. But a good app.
Sibpatro - Love Team
Earlier we were using slack, go to meeting and other calendar applications which are completely replaced by one TEAM application. We love to use this because it's very easy to use, looking good and up to date with all the new features that you want

sparrow_2 - This app doesn't let me sign in.
I can't even enter my password on the app but I use it fine on my laptop. Everytime I try to log on, it says sign-on error. I've tried deleted and reinstalling many times
irish dance lover - This app sucks
Lots of bugs would not recommend

no✌️😁🧞♀️👁 - 🤢🤢
this app is what triggers my breakdowns before class.
valentinaaye - no❤️
horrible app 😡😡😡😡😤😤😤😤😾😾 all I learnt from my teacher was that
Wizard.V - Assignments feature 4/5
This is a great app for online schooling. My only issue is that the assignments feature on mobile is a little hard to use, if I wanted to go through all my teams assignments to see if there are any more I need to do before I start my weekend, I have to pick each team one by one, going back to the assignments menu each time. And worse, if a teacher hasn’t even assigned anything since they started the team, I get the ‘if your teacher makes any assignments they will be posted here’ page, and from there I need to restart the app in order to look at my other assignments.
I would love to be about to swipe left and right to go to my next team’s assignments, and clicking Next after selecting a team to view assignments for seems like a useless extra step. And I definitely don’t want to be barred from viewing other assignments just because I looked at a team who hasn’t set up assignments yet. Please clean up the assignments tab and make it a bit more user friendly!
a suffering poor poor student - It upsets me
Please delete this app, for the love of gods.
sumi1037676 - 🧑🏾🦲
xjsbqksnsm - terrible
✨10/10 would NOT recommend✨
WWEKhan_RingKing - Sucks so much
It gives us work
kt157478 - Recently notifications are incorrect
Notifications aren’t correctly showing up, I have 25 showing as the badge icon but I open up the app and only have one notification. Please fix
Elizabeth123Girls - makes my blood boil
i’m stressed bc of this app 💁🏼♀️✨
WWGD69 - Problem with notifications
Lately i see multiple notifications over the app , example 12, while i only have 1 new notification. If i open the app those 12 notices go away. Then i get a new message and again the notification count is higher than the 1.
alphacr0m - Can’t start video conference from the app
I see no way to initiate a video conference with my team from the iOS app. This is a major shortfall and, consequently, gives it a failing grade. Rectify this issue and I’ll revise my review to an improved rating.
iksnerf2 - Chat
Where is the damn chat section!?!
yuhanlin08 - Absolute worst “enterprise” chat system
Im forced to use teams due to some of our enterprise clients and it has been the worst experience. I constantly lose access to my account, always “oops something went wrong,” endless cycles of sending codes to email and 2FA with authenticator apps to then just have it blow up and go “oops” again.
There seems to be multiple accounts created with my exact email and the app doesnt understand how to handle it.
Pulling all my clients into a shared slack channel. Never touching this embarrassment of an “enterprise” system again
Happy Not Me - Not impressed
Joined a meeting and as the meeting started we were dropped and could not get back in no matter how many tries we made.
Not for me thanks. Yeah Google Meet.
Too many people is my guess!
orangesurfer - Why is a phone number required?
There is no justifiable reason that an email address shouldn’t suffice.
Plus, young kids don’t have phones.
Osti de clash royale - Calls
Sometimes I can’t join call meetings. It doesn’t appear in my channel.
No Itunes giftcard - Terrible
This app is terrible, 1/5 stars, crashes multiple times, and sometimes when people are sharing their screen it doesn’t show for multiple people.
bshakdbdi - Crashes
App keeps crashing once I turn meeting on. Screen goes ⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️ and I miss half my class
agentcoolguy41 - laggy and privacy issues
this app is extremely laggy and hard to use. also, sometimes when i join a meeting, i notice that it turns on my mic and camera without me giving any input and even after i disabled the camera permissions it constantly spams asking for permission to use the camera
shtas e marr je - onlineschool bad
i hate this
😡😡🤯😡 - This is trash
This is so horrible now we can’t even text anyone but the group chat so trash just delegated the app just stop this is trash we don’t even get to see our friends trash
bobby jow - if I could give this app a lower rating I would
dude the amount of times I got kicked out of my online classes was actually ridiculous. Sometimes I couldn’t log in so my parents would get calls saying I wasn’t in class but it was the damn app that wouldn’t let me join. This app pushes my buttons sm I can’t stand it.
NinjaAttackForce - Fix the notification badges
Every time I get a notification, the badge count shows a large number of notifications which is always inaccurate. Additionally, the badge does not go away if I acknowledge the message, etc. from another device. Please fix this.
rainbow tv - Great and useful
Great during this pandemic.
For online classes. <3
joan betris - ⚠️Don’t download this app!!⚠️

6666666666666688523942793: - Lol you’ll never get anywhere students
I’m about to go to college so I don’t have any hw now that the exams are cancelled hehehe also you students who are rating it one-star will never get anywhere because of the balancing system Microsoft teams has employed on the app. Have fun getting swamped with homework hahahahahahahhahahahahahahaha.
