More HCL Verse Cons →

"With respect to security, there needs to be more work done. I was surprised, for example, yesterday, when my daughter was able to use my Microsoft Teams interface for her schoolwork. I was surprised that they could do that, because I believe it was only for my own personal use.""Microsoft Teams does not have any features that Zoom, Skype, or Webex don't already have.""Whiteboard should be standard rather than an app.""Inability to call into meetings.""This solution is not as popular for companies to use as other solutions making it a disadvantage.""The user interface is non-intuitive and should be improved.""After six months of working with it, I still find the UI a little clunky when it comes to sharing content and moving around between features like the calendar and files.""Inability to see large numbers of participants."
