Yes, Slack has been around a while, and it does facilitate ongoing conversations – just like your persistent text message strings with your closest friends. BUT – Teams is better because:
- Security – it sits in the framework of Microsofts super secure data centers and offers a wide variety of controls to business users to keep information segregated or shared, safe for just your team, or share with a huge group both outside and inside your business.
- Integration – Can be connected and integrated with ALL of the MS Office apps and many more like Trello, Salesforce, Workday, etc. Your team never really has to leave the teams interface. It’s kind of like your cell phone screen, but way better at the multitasking parts.
- Voice – you can go straight from a text conversation to a phone call (VOIP) if the info just gets too complicated to type out! : ) and if your conversation is in a Team Channel, you can record the call. (So, you can save those important breakthru ideas.) Then it saves the recording to Microsoft Stream so you can share it directly from the cloud with others. No downloading, converting or other problems with large files!
