Teams, obviously 😁

Are you contractually obligated to say that 😁😬

Teams by far.

Does Teams only work for internal meetings or does it work for sending a link to clients like the other services?

like

I have used it for both. I cannot place a call to someone outside my company, but I can schedule meetings.

I love Teams but have so much issue with my external clients and their firewalls or wtf ever keeping them from joining that at this point, I’m just on Zoom 🥴

like

Zoom! We find setting up meetings and sharing screens via Zoom is easier. Honestly, right when quarantine and WFH started, teams still had it where you can only see 4 people, so we found ourselves choosing Zoom and have stuck with it! We love it

like

Teams by far. I’ve even started using Teams to host small webinar sessions instead of using WebEx.

like

WebEx is the best one so far. Not because I works at Cisco but I had the opportunity to use every single of them but WebEx has so many options and very stable platform!

I've never been on the presenting side of the Webex, but I've used it when salesperson I'm buying from wants to use it and I've found it the most frustrating to use. On Friday, I spent 10 minutes trying to get the sound to work and then we swt he'd to Google meet. The first time I ever used it I didn't realize the camera came on by default and I'd just come back from hiking so the sales rep got a full view of my sweaty chest and wild hair.

Teams. However why isn’t there an option to see 20+ participants or sort by those with video on?

That’s correct. ✌🏼

I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?

Looking for advice on project management software or tools for HR consulting. Our firm doesn’t have anything that is standard or used at all, and while some of us are starting to venture into using Microsoft Teams, I feel like there are so many tools out there and we could be doing things way more efficiently. We work in small client teams (1-3 team members per client usually) and it’s a mix of strategy, tactical, and outsourced HR work. Any suggestions?
