  • Common Area Phones in Teams
    2 Posts | Last post February 10, 2020
    • Hi Vitali, since there are device licenses for Teams Phones availible to setup a phone without teams client device based - isn´t this comparable with "Common Area Phone" in Skype 4B? OK the fallback to a default ID is not availible but i think the common area phone is availible in teams using a single device license.
      Greetings Matthias
    • Hi, you are right, I'll update the table.
      Thank you.

  • Teams features list according Device
    2 Posts | Last post June 22, 2019
    • Hi,
      The comparison table between Skype and Teams is great ..but by chance you don t have a table of features according the Device ?
      According to which device you are login you don't have the same list of features available (IPphone, IOS phone, Android phone, Windows client,..)
      As example
    • Hi,
      thank you for you kind comment. Agree this table is not device based, but more from a deployment point of view and, as you can see, more from a Enterprise Voice point of view, because these are, in my opinion, the more relevant differences between SfB and Teams.
      At this moment I've not planned to create a device based list.
      Best Regards. Luca
  • About Microsoft TEAMS Call Pickup Function
    2 Posts | Last post April 10, 2019
    • I understood that the call pickup functionality on Microsoft TEAMS was already released, however in the table, it seems that it is not available. I share the link so you can check:
    • Hi Javier,
      the Table is correct, sad to say is Microsft that change name to features. The "Call Pickup" feature that we know from Skype for Business (dial the call of a group of users to pickup incoming calls to that users) is NOT present in Teams and is NOT in roadmap. The feature you linked is a normal "Call Forwarding to Group (Team Call)" with a different name. I've commented negatively this "naming change" that create only confusions in customers and IT Pro. Hope this could help to clarify you.
      Regards. Luca

  • Excel Version

    • Hi Luca, 
      Really appreciate this comparison sheet. Is there any updated version available in .xlsx ?
    • Hi,
      your question is not clear. The excel file you can find here is updated 2-3 times per month. Simply download it again and you will get the latest version.
  • Attendant Console for Teams
    2 Posts | Last post December 20, 2018
    • Hello. We really appreciate your comparison sheet and want to thank you for your big effort. Can you please clarify "Attendant Console" for Teams? We can't find any solution which is working without the Skype for Business Client installed. Especially as new O365 customer just will get Teams, it is not possible (yet) to use Landis Attendant Pro for example. In your list it is stated as "Full feauture available".
    • Hi Stephan,
      confirm, there are few but functional Attendant Console for Teams, and more to come.
      The problem is that the entire "Voice" argument needs to be improved in Teams (compared to SfB).
  • GUI separation and controls
    2 Posts | Last post July 20, 2018
    • Nice work Luca some suggestion:
      Adding a line for GUI Separation:
      Currently in Skype we have GUI separation,  a windows for contacts, a windows for each chat...   very useful on modern large screens.   Currently Teams limit us to a single app.  
      Addin a line for Audio-Video controls and parameters:
      Also audio controls in Skype are very powerful.  Teams has nothing in comparison.
    • Hi, good comment, I've added "Complete Audio/Video Controls" and "Separated Windows".
      Thantk you
  • Excel download?

    • Hi Luca,
      Thanks for this.  There's a small typo in the title.  "feautures" should be "features"

    • Hi Darrell,
