TEAMS is THE WORST!
You forced the replacement of Skype for Business without having the same (even minimal) functionality available in Teams.
1.) There is no pop-out chat window for participating in multiple conversations at once.
2.) No easy way to see missed chats (flashing icon isn’t in real time or noticeable); No Outlook notifications of missed chat summary.
3.) No Chat summary auto-cataloged in Outlook Conversations
4.) Lack of searching of previous Conversations
5.) Lack of deletion of some Conversation parts
6.) Automatic minimalization of Team Meeting screen share when trying to access files or other content in Teams.
7.) Lack of tight integration with Outlook Calendar and Teams Status. (Busy/Away/etc) The availability of a person in Teams does not always reflect accurately.
8.) No way to keep a resizable screen up for quick and easy visual as to who on the Team is Available for a chat. The Chat box is large and can’t be effectively resized.
Overall our team members are very frustrated with Teams! It feels like we are being forced to endure a Beta testing situation with Teams roll-out.
The lack of these basic but heavily relied upon functionalities in Teams has slowed our internal productivity and collaboration!
Fix it or allow users to continue using Skype for Business until the app is ready for prime-time, daily business use.
Teams is a piece of ****. Unbelievably difficult/complicated to and join a meeting and missed important interview as a result. Zoom absolutely ***..es all over this piece of garbage
u ***** cant even make the back button work
I find again that Teams is a disaster. I have tried joining an event for 2 hours this morning that is hosted by Teams. Yesterday I was able to join without a problem. I have run the very good cleanup software Advanced System Care to remove any code fragments etc and rebooted my PC only to find Microsoft needed to update and configure my Windows 10 Pro, but after that Teams still does not work.
FOR REAL! microsoft teams is the most laggy thing ever KEEPS CRASHING. when too much people send a chat message at the same time it starts lagging so bad and sometimes just crashes. My processor is on 100% constantly when im in a meeting. ZERO optimisation for ****** devices. I have to use it all day so fix the problems

An overrated guy (i.e. a huge ******) from my company decides that all employees should now use Teams instead of Slack (because he won't pay Slack to get message history).
And Teams keep crash / lag / don't show cam / randomly fail to find micro / fail at sharing screen after a bunch of update...
THE WORST APP EVER... DEFINITIVELY

bloated slow junk software, hangs all the time on older android versions and makes device too slow

Unfortunately MS is using a phony price structure many Corporate 500 Companies have picked MS.
Again, mostly these decisions are made without considering the end users in mind. MS Teams is a simplified messaging platform with a really bad meetings experience.
Bottom line cost is of major concern but unfortunately without considering the end user work experience it slows productivity from end users. There are major competitors (Webex) that give a ‘State-of-the-art the Art’ user experience without compromising the end user experience or for that matter security.
in my scariest nightmares, never ever I would have imagined to say that I do love Skype.
Okay, to be fair, not everything is bad about Teams, I love the GIF feature. It's just awesome to express your own frustration about Teams itself even better.
You stuffed it with so many features, which might not be too bad in the end, but if you aim to replace your #1 business chat software by it, have you ever thought about to also equip it with a comparable user experience?
I mean, I am using this now since a while along with Skype, but I really wonder if you are using it even internally?!
How much do you actually like it to permanently switch between chats and contacts?
How much do you actually like it not to have a contact list which you can decouple from the chat window?
How much do you actually like it not to get rid of old chats (without the need to hide them)
How much do you actually like it to have meeting chats flood your chat window, and stay there?
How much do you actually like it to get permanently asked to join some meetings?
How much do you actually like it to get ripped out of something important, only because some a**hole clicks the button for you to join?
Is anyone in your company actually using it in business, or do you already prefer Zoom?
For now, I can only hope our company is not gonna switch Skype off entirely, as else, I feel I have to quit, and get back to paper post delivery.

I agree, but it gets even worse.
1. Suddenly, it decides to change account - then reports the account is incorrect.
2. The test call - when you answer it, keeps ringing and can't be shut off.
3. To use Teams, you have to use the authenticator - then the authenticator itself asks you to authenticate your login through the authenticator - it's like Catch 22 - at the end your still not logged into Teams.
4. Once you (somehow) manage to get it, trying to just make a call or a video call is nigh impossible.
It's not intuitive to use. Not user-friendly. Confusing and poorly integrated into other MS products.
It's a nightmare!
I got a yellow card at school for some other problems you didn't mention:
1. automatically disconnects you and you can't join even after restarting
2. Files delete themselves
3. distant noises in calls
4. Incredibly slow
5. Incredibly bad screen sharing

I have a MS Home account under my email - I have a-multi-Office 365 subscription under this address for the family.
I logged into MS teams as a business account with the same email address.
Now when i log into teams - I'm told that my password is incorrect
When I select reset password, I'm told to contact the admin!
If I try to log in using my home account, i'm told that this email is already in use on teams
I have spent 3 hours to date going around 'support' systems in vain and then contacting the MS support number who eventually told me that I need to log into teams support.
How can i get a human to resolve this?
This experience is motivating me to exit Microsoft altogether - the support experience is the worst of all of our suppliers
Support links don't work. Phone contact sends you to back to menus and even ask you to re-enter the number that you just called from followed by a pound symbol - a what???
Wish the microsoft team tried being their customers with a tech issue.
Are they hoping that the customers will just go away?

Teams has honestly ****** me over so much. It is the modern world's way of torturing people and making them regret life. As a student I prefer getting harassed and bullied and then getting infected with covid rather then using Teams but the government hasnt allowed me to. Teams was probably developed by drunk developers who were mainly focused on masturbation rather then development. Microsoft has so many problems Im honestly starting to consider Linux or Apple at this point.
Our school just went from Zoom to Microsoft Teams and i can say that after almost a year of a pandemic I started now to feel stressed out because of technical aspects. The android app i terrible and crashes often. The computer version is sticking to random friends video so I dont see the teachers video. Cant see the teachers shared video. Microsoft is trash
Our Manager makes us use teams as a punishment.
Teams is terribly designed, so bulky and laggy. Didn't have much experience of Skype for Business but Teams really is flawed throughout. Microsoft want to make absolutely everything. Full with bugs - Bugs is the biggest UserVoice section for Teams. Needs a **** of a lot of bug-fixing. Really unstable. Crashes on me all the time.

Teams is hopeless - so hard to setup. I just wan to do a video call. Its so easy on zoom. What is wrong with Microsoft that they have to make everything little thing so difficult???
marc urguess commented
Not to mention it will not allow sign-in half the time without reinstalling!
ABSOLUTELY WORST SOFTWARE PRODUCT EVER, REALLY SUCKS
Simply said - crapware. Idle renderer process starts to eat one CPU core on daily basis, requiring to restart the app. Sometimes quitting the app restarts it instead since some kind of autorecovery mechanism believes that the app crashed in previous run. Unusable diagnostic data readable only for MS support... I can continue almost infinitely.
It seems just about impossible to look up a contact even when you have their information. Also, the app seems to want to connect over cel phones. Why would I want to team chat over a cel phone? Rediculous.
