I’ve been a bit of a Microsoft Teams naysayer in recent months.
During the COVID-19 lockdowns, I decried the complexity of this collaborative app and avoided it like a wet gym sock. I thought:
Microsoft doesn’t understand how we work. The app has too many features. It doesn’t fit with the lifestyle of modern remote workers. I hate the color purple.
It was like this big lump of bloated software, sitting in an application tray collecting dust. I didn’t want to click on it, and I didn’t want to learn how it worked. At times, I reluctantly posted a few documents and tested out features, all the while wishing I was back on Slack.
I’ve consistently told people that Microsoft Teams is a joke.
I was wrong.
