Microsoft Teams Vs Slack: How they are different from each other?
 As mentioned in our earlier post that we have started crafting down the ‘Slack vs X’ series of articles to let users know the existing collaboration software and making it easier to discover the best outfit. At this moment, we are decoding the dissimilarities between Slack and Microsoft Teams, which are poles apart in their strengths and weakness. Since the advent of team collaboration software, Slack has been acknowledged as the cool kid. He delivers things in his way with a fancy interface and unique combination of features. Well, keeping analogies on the couch, team chat applications have waved goodbye to the internal email structure and phone calls at the organizations.   Table of Contents   Pricing GettingStarted Layout Messaging Notifications Video and Audio Calls Integrations Support Search   So, without further ado, here we go:   Pricing - Which Application Breaks the Bank? Your greenbacks go more for Teams than Slack. Yes, it is true. For those who are unfamiliar, Teams did not have a Freemium version like Slack; but in July Microsoft has announced that a new grade of Teams is available at no cost in order to stand in the Slack competitor bar. Now, since both the applications come with Freemium editions, the ball is in your court - whether to upgrade or not.   Slack Microsoft Teams $8 per person $6 per person   The pricing for Microsoft Teams starts at $6 per person if you remunerate monthly with which you can obtain Office 365 Business Essentials account that incorporates several Microsoft services such as OneDrive, Skype, Exchange, and SharePoint. And the next edition come on the scene with $15 per person for a month. Along with the aforementioned features, it provides Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, and Teams.   The pricing for Slack starts at $8 per person if you pay monthly and you get Slack alone. It does not compose of any paid-worthy feature such as single sign-on option, accurate uptime, administrations benefits, etcetera. Those expect extra bucks from your pocket which makes the bill oversized.   Upon taking into account the costings of both the applications, Slack charges almost the same without an involvement of business services. That being said, you are devoting to a huge package of services when you purchase a Microsoft package. And, both the applications offers enterprise-grade plans if you want to check out.   On a side note, you do not a genie to get magnificent deals. Isn't it? Which is why:    Troop Messenger (we) – a unified and user-friendly team messagingplatform has made it official that the application is free until March 31st. Just saying!   Getting Started - Which Application Offers Smoother Setup? Well, it is not going to be a smooth road while deploying Microsoft Teams. Making the first move with Teams takes hell lot of time since you are expected to present a set of information such as personal data that includes business email (no cheating, okay?), mobile number, and credit card information(in case of premium version).   However, Slack’s deployment is as smooth as cheesecake. It does not ask you for any credit card or personal information unless and until it is a paid version.   In a nutshell, it took me almost seven minutes of time to deploy Slack whereas almost an hour for Microsoft Teams.   Wait.   For those who are in one hell of a hurry, we have compiled a quick synopsis of the differences between Slack and Microsoft Teams.   Features Slack Microsoft Teams  Price  Free Standard ($6.67/month) Plus ($12.50/month)  Depends on the version Office 365  you purchase  Uploading Files  Multiple 3rd Party Integrations for online file sharing needs  Users can use their One   Drive/SharePoint document libraries for online file sharing needs  Integrations 10 integrations limit in a Free plan, 800+ integrations in paid plans 180+ apps and services (as of July 2018)  Message History Limit 10K messages in a Free plan, unlimited in Standard and Plus plans Unlimited in all plans  Operating Systems Mac, Windows, Linux, iOS, Android Mac, Windows, iOS, Android  Screen Sharing Unavailable in the Free version, available in Standard and Plus versions Available in all plans  Audio/Video Calls Available Available (powered by Skype for Business)  Search Capabilities Can search messages and text within the files Can search messages, people, and files  File Storage Limit Free plan: 5GB file storage for a team Standard plan: 10GB per user Plus plan: 20GB per user Free plan: 2 GB/user and 10GB of shared storage Paid plans: 1 TB per organization       Layout - Which Application Gives Comfort Over Chaos? The layout of these applications appears like they have been cut from the same cloth. Like every team collaboration software, a left rail consists of channels or groups, conversations, tasks, and anything you have pinned to the top. The nucleus part concentrates on the details of the chosen conversation. And the right rail is subjective. For instance, Troop Messenger focused on the information that is one more layer deep such as filters, screen sharing and other contents of a conversation.   It has to be understood that both are having a small vertical dashboard for conversations, contacts, and channels. Coming to Slack, it is busy as the bee. It is visually intense with eight customized themes giving end users a chance to alter the dashboard of their workspace as they want.   Furthermore, if you are a member of numerous workspaces, you can choose a different theme for each workspace giving you a crystal clear workflow.   And Microsoft Teams does not short your expectations either. It gives you even more command over conversations with the help of personalized tabs.   Speaking technical, MT has an additional vertical that consists of tabs like Teams, Chat, Files, Meetings, and Activity.    Now, it is your turn.    Messaging - Which Application Made it a Cakewalk?   Both the applications offer instant messaging in one-to-one and groups/channels versions. These two applications have likewise messaging features such as supporting and sharing all types of media, editing, deleting, mentioning any member (in case of a channel) with @, threading etcetera.   By any chance of speaking about differences, Microsoft Teams holds the cup with advanced designing tools within its messenger such as the possibility of changing the font color.   Similar to WhatsApp, Teams also supports the feature of emoticon search. To elaborate more, when you are in a dilemma of which emoji to pick out, you can simply type the name of it and Teams get it for you. Also to messages, Slack permits you to reach with smileys whereas MT has limited it to Like (thumbs up) symbol.   Wrapping up, I would say that both Slack and Microsoft Teams have exceptional messaging features.   Notifications - Which Application is legend-ary? Since notifications is a significant feature in business messaging applications where end-users gets decided whether to halt or continue.   Speaking of these two, I would say that Slack has star-studded features in customizing the notifications. You can set up the alerts of your preferred keywords, you can set you to personalize your notifications in terms of Do Not Disturb for a predetermined time or you never want to hear from that person or channel at any point.   Slack even allows you to set distinct preferences for mobile and desktop versions.   In Slack, users can update the status automatically if you are going for a meeting or lunch or just taking a quick nap. When it comes to Microsoft Teams, the settings are umm, a bit feeble. You cannot customize channel notifications i.e., the settings are applied to all channels; you cannot personalize for one particular channel leaving the rest as active.   Also, Teams has provided only four options such as busy, available, away, and Do Not Disturb. Whereas in Slack, you can update the status as what you want. You can include text, image, emoticon and many more.   For instance, if you are on vacation, chillin’ in the beach, you can keep the status as clinking beer mugs followed by a text up to January 3rd.   Isn’t it legend-ary!? You tell me, please.   Video and Audio Calls - Which Application Offers Crystal Clear Outlook?     I have tested both the tools with my fellow workers in the office and we had a bit leisure doing this. It is a known fact that post the purchase of Skype, Microsoft has been producing new facets to the web or video conference in the business world.   Everything Microsoft works on responsive calling appears on Teams simultaneously. You can hold audio and video calls, web conferences within the house or offshore.   In addition, Skype has a built-in broadcasting feature where you can host a one-day meeting with almost 10, 000 other participants where Slack of it. You can even switch from a video call to instant messaging with just a button.   Besides that, Teams has an inbuilt feature of recording the call. And that recording will come into view of your chat feed once you are done with the discussion.   Teams is over Slack in video calling because you can only have one-on-one calls with a free plan and the group call head-count is limited to 15 whereas Slack has drawn a line at 80.   Integrations - Which Application is On Good Terms With All?     It goes without saying that Microsoft Teams is integrated with Office 365 apps where you would not find any issue in adding third-party services and Tools like Trello.   Although MT has a total of 180+ integrations while Slack has gone a long way in providing 800+ external integration systems.   Support - Which Application has a Better Helping Hands?     Let us assume that I want to make some X as an admin but I do not know how to do it. So, where should I look for? Looking left and right give any assistance? No, right?   Under these circumstances, Slack and Microsoft Teams both have decided to help you me out in their own way. In MT, the usual way to get help is through T-Bot. It pops up in your dashboard the moment you sign in. As you want to make X as admin, you can type as “make admin” in a message box and it fetches you the instructions of how to get it done.   In Slack, the simplest and flexible way to get help is to consult Slack’s Help Centre. I have to admit that Slack is few steps ahead in saving time and resolving the issue. When you just type the phrase “admin” the bot results the recommendations such as “how to remove Y as admin,” “how to make Y as admin” and much more.   End of the day, I believe that Google can obtain you the fast and accurate answers than in-built help centers of Slack and MT. Huh!   Search - Which Application says ‘try me?’     Sharing and exchanging files all-day long is one of the core activities in an employee life. Let it be of any format. In Slack, you can easily look through messages the files. It even allows you to search for the content that exists within the bounds of a file. So I decided to make sure of it.   I shared a user guide of 5000+ words with my colleague long ago in PDF format. I just typed the phrase “run user” to examine whether it would work or not. And guess what, it did! And why to leave MT behind? I tried the same thing with Teams and it provided me the accurate results too.   So, now - it is the time for the verdict: On the whole, Microsoft Teams is the finest application if you are possessing Business account already and you work more on Office 365 integrated applications. Slack is your way to go if you are looking for an adaptable and ardent interface that offers you a Freemium version and has some of the best third-party apps in the store.   Let us know in the comments section below if we had missed anything.

Discord vs Slack - Which team communication tool is the best?
Heads up! I am not a winner winner chicken dinner type.   First things first, Slack is a commercial choice for businesses while Discord is for the gaming community. And we cannot compare fish with a bird.   Comparing software belonging to different genres is akin to comparing a baseball player with a tennis player – both are players for sure, but the similarity ends there. I have hands-on experience in both the domains but I am no gamer. I cannot play Pubg for hours sitting happily on the couch. Luckily, my friends and colleagues at work feel like they are living while they are just playing the games on mobile. So they have assisted me in writing this blog post. We have recently started this ‘Slack vs X’ race to actually let users know the existing software tools and make it easier to find the best according to their services.   Slack is a team communication and collaboration tool designed based on cloud technology. It is an acronym for “Search Log of All Conversation and Knowledge.”   Whereas Discord is a freeware (software that is available free of charge) Voice over Internet Protocol(VoIP) that is developed for the communication in between the communities and the gaming teams.   Keep on reading to understand how Slack and Discord are different from one another :   Concept : Slack’s primary drift is towards business whereas Discord is running to become a meaningful platform for the gaming community.   Still, the gamers can just hang out in Slack.   They are much alike. Both are chat software with a comparable interface where the team communication is segregated into channels. However, the key difference is their end users a.k.a - target audience.   Interface : Discord maintains a similar interface like Slack. Nonetheless, I believe that Slack has done a better job in maintaining a simple user interface and organizing its features on the left panel such as channels, quick conversations, and the integrated applications.   On the other hand, the Discord interface is not a cakewalk for the beginners. Users would require some time to get used to the interface as the channels and direct conversations are placed under multiple menu tabs.   Users can personalize the color scheme of the interface to either light or dark in Discord; whereas in Slack, it is only the left panel with contacts is customizable. They have provided the eight color options to choose.   They have provided eight color options to choose   And if you are a techie, you can customize the entire pattern with custom Cascading Style Sheets(CSS). Upon making the certain changes for the CSS file of the desktop application or the widgets in Slack, you can mold the interface as you want.   All in all, Slack is not a simple collaboration platform and I personally think that it gets more and more suffused with diverse features each year passing   As I disclosed earlier,   I have used both the applications, it took me almost 5-10 minutes in understanding where I can actually change my color scheme.   With the beat,   when I used Discord, I instantly found what I want despite the fact it is designed for gamers. Additionally, once you are done with the account setup in Discord, you are on the loose to join and leave different servers.   But, you have to go through the complete boarding process in Slack to get added to any other team. End of the day even after this struggle of joining, navigation is as smooth as between the servers in Discord.   Conversations : Chats or conversations in Slack are arranged in public, private and direct messages modes; when in fact Discord has branched out the channels into text and voice.   However, the channels setting in Discord are so improvised as you can even set up the roles and permission to any other member in the group or channel.   While in channels, limit of the members in a channel is really a big deal for gamers.   Even though Slack has never made an official announcement of the official limit of members in a group, many users have got a message that ‘you have reached the maximum number of users.’ Later the number has been prolonged but nobody proceeded to discover it out.   At the exact moment, Discord has officially declared their 5000 online concurrent users limit in a channel.   Notifications : Notifications are a preeminent element in every messaging service or chat tool.   No user like to get annoyed every minute with a popup. It would be ideal to keep a tab on such popups without missing the important developments.   As luck would have it, Slack provides an in-depth control over all sorts of data or information as there is a whole page of Notification Preferences.   A user could set up his/her own keyword notification for a particular channel without poking out the other options.   Also, Discord notification settings did not disappoint me either. You can let a robot narrate notification for you and I found it to be pretty impressive which definitely be a good option for gamers. But you cannot alter the notifications of direct messages like Slack.   Integrations : Slack is a conquering hero when it comes to the integration of third-party software.   You can connect freaking 800+ applications. Since Slack is primarily designed to cater to the businesses, it integrates with many tools the companies usually use at work.    Discord cannot get in touch with your applications at work. Instead, you can amalgamate it with your games. Thank the developers for Rich Presence feature.   File Sharing : Obviously as messengers, both Slack and Discord allows users to share files. Discord has limited the size of 8MB but you can upgrade it to the Nitro paid plan and prolong the limit to 50MB.   Simultaneously, Slack limited the file upload of 1GB but you cannot embrace the files forever. Yep!   The storage space is 5GB per a user in free plan and it goes up to 10 GB in a premium version.   At the same time, Discord offers unlimited message and file history which seems commendable; especially when you want a constant access to all the files exchanged.   But see, here is the twist.   With 8MB, Discord lets you upload but you really would not share much. It acted so smartly in providing the endless storage space with a strict file upload limit.   File Search : If you are someone who shares files all day long and want to find you have sent a week ago, go with Slack. Do not look back. It not only allows the users the files they have uploaded but also from the files user has shared in a channel. Provided, if you are a person like me who often forgets the name of the document, you can even search within the document which is awwwsome.   Alas, I did not find this in Discord. After all, Slack is for business while Discord is for gamers.     Well, as all is said and done, I will keep it short. Both Slack and Discord are amazing tools. Each software is developed for its purpose. A large number of integrations, smart search filters, and the emphasis on the text communication has made Slack the one for businesses as a team collaboration tool. On the other hand, the voice communication and integrations with other famous games have made Discord a social network.   End of the day, the choice is yours. The choice of a team tool should depend on the objectives.   If you are still wondering where to go, Switch to Troop Messenger   Disclaimer: Considering the plethora of team collaboration software out there, we have started this marathon of comparing software products with one another after using them in our own team. So, as a result, we have crafted this article that inspects the perks, pitfalls, information, and features about the product in a succinct way.

Activity Monitor    Troop Messenger, therefore, offers you state-of-the-art security features that protect your data from cybercriminals.   Encryption  With the advance of numerous online frauds and security breaches, any online exchange of information calls for the security and privacy of the transmitted data, as any weakness in security could be disastrous for a business.   The new-age business chat app Troop Messenger uses Server-Side Encryption (SSE) to keep your data secure and confidential.

To enable it, click on the menu option on the top left corner of your screen.   Then go to Profile and select Security. If your device has a fingerprint scanner, it will show the corresponding option. Once you have selected the fingerprint option, keep your finger on the fingerprint sensor (on your mobile device) and click on “Confirm” when prompted. You can now use your fingerprint to access the app on your mobile device.   Activity Monitor  Troop Messenger is certainly an innovator when it comes to security features and this can be realized by exploring its activity monitor. If you go to your profile settings and click on the tab labeled “Activity,” you can see all those devices that are currently signed in to Troop Messenger with your ID.   You can log off from any suspicious devices by clicking on the icon that looks like a box with an arrow and you are logged out from that device.

Chats are supposed to be the fun way of interacting with people.   Business on the other hand is … let’s just say essential for this world to exist the way we know it. For all those who think that business chats can’t be fun or effective, the developers of Troop Messenger have an answer that proves them wrong.   This team chat app incorporates all the fun of an instant messenger and at the same time addresses the concerns that a business might have.   Well before : we proceed further, we’d like to emphasize the fact that has been foretold by many scholars — communication and collaboration are pillars of success for an organization.   Troop Messenger bears these essentials in its soul and brings you a load of features that not only help in keeping the communication and collaboration effective but also address the security concerns of an organization.   Off late there has been a debate that messaging at an office isn’t very beneficial. Advocates of this ideology have provided very reasonable arguments that it makes employees indulge in gossip and often communicate with people outside their organization. They also point out the amount of time that is wasted on searching for files in the instant messenger along with the effort it takes to clear up the history so that employees don’t run out of space on their devices.   While some of those concerns might be genuine, studies have shown that instant messaging is actually a faster way to get a work done especially when it comes to collaboration and is, therefore, more productive. More importantly, when there is team chat app such as Troop Messenger, it makes team collaboration more effective.   It has many remarkable features that make it a next-generation app. This app is not only compatible with a wide range of operating systems but also takes much lesser space to install.   It provides a server-side security for higher data protection. Although it allows multi-tenancy, the companies that use Troop Messenger can be assured that the data of each individual is kept separately. It has a massive storage size of up to 1 TB so users don’t have to worry about running out of space.   With such massive storage, the chat history can be pretty humungous and can lead to many issues. It makes searching for information or files one of the many dreadful tasks. Troop Messenger addresses those concerns by making its chat history completely searchable and also allows some data filters that can be used to search files in the chat history by their type.   It has an interesting feature called self-messaging that allows users to send ideas that they want to share with anyone. It lets employees communicate with users who are part of their organization and restricts them from contacting those outside the organization.   Its group chat has features of administrators as well as moderators that make the collaboration of a work over instant messenger more effective.   Features such as the ones mentioned here make the Troop Messenger one of the potential game CHANGERS.
