What does Skype for Business do well? It allows streamlined and easy way of working together with coworkers at distant geographic locations. We can chat and share screens and let each other take control of the mouse. Team meetings via voice/video call are also very helpful. Instant messaging is a vital tool for working in a fast paced engineering field. Skype for Business makes my work so much better.
What does Skype for Business not do well? I would like to have option to save the instant message records. Most of the official conversations are done on email, but sometimes we also want to remember what was said during the IM chat.
What do you wish you had known about Skype for Business before using? I wish I had known at my previous companies that Skype for Business is an awesome tool for working together with coworkers, more than just a chatting messenger.
Have you used a competitor to Skype for Business? If so, how does it compare? I have only used Google chat, but it would not count as an official company wide program for working environment. Skype for Business is the only one I have used.
