More Jive Pros →

"This solution is great for ad hoc video conferencing. It's so easy to start a meeting.""The most valuable features are visual and audio, as they are very clear with no interruptions.""The video conferencing is good.""The most valuable feature is the ability to collaborate.""Message and chat retention is a valuable feature.""The most valuable feature for me is the chat.""Our company is moving from their Skype for Business to Teams.

More Microsoft Teams Pros →

"The search engine could be improved and also provide some kind of indexing."

More Jive Cons →

"I had to type the team members versus being able to set up a team's group of names as you can do with Outlook.""The biggest issue is web content.""The security needs improvement, as well as the ability to back up private chats.""The UI can be further improved upon. When I used to use Skype, Skype was a small window that opened on your desktop. With Teams, when you use it, it occupies your full screen just like if you were in Word or Excel. Skype worked more like an app, which I preferred. I liked being able to use it in a minimized screen. If Teams could emulate that a bit, it would be a better user experience.""Inability to see large numbers of participants.""On rare occasions, it freezes and some people will lose sound or they could lose video.""It's a bit slow, especially if you are downloading photos.""Microsoft Teams does not have any features that Zoom, Skype, or Webex don't already have."
