Anyone using Teams over Slack? Want to understand if investing in WORK is worth it. Looks too over priced in any case.

    We tried using teams. It was horrible. We paid extra to get slack. Very happy with Slack. It was worth every cent.

      Significant differences in usability. Starting threads, creating groups much easier in Slack. One always missed notifications in Teams, so good bye realtime communications. Might as well switch to email threads.

    A lot of folks in our group used slack and when it was time to buy the license we were asked which one people preferred. We had O 365 and that meant Teams was free of additional cost and Slack meant more money. We did a trial and people still liked Dlack but the management decided to screw what everyone thought and told us there werent going to be any licensed tor slack. So we didnt have a choice, but over a period of about a year, people who hated Teams had stories to tell about how great Teams was. I personally like Teams and find it very useful and it's been getting better with time. We did have promlems with meetings and video recordings initially but it has been a while I found those problems return.

      Your example is exactly what's happening, and users love slack, management hates paying for something when there is an alternative already avaialble, after being forced to use it, people end up liking it. Microsoft is most slacks users dad's software... so there is a natural resistance to anything MS does... but there's a reason MS is still on top. Sometimes "just enough" pays the bills.

    Slack all the way. It’s way easier to use. It has changed our communication and improved it.
