What is Kanban Tool? Visually manage your work. Kanban Tool is an intuitive solution used for visual project management and process work flow management with seamless time tracking and time reports. It allows to visualize workflow, manage tasks and projects with online Kanban boards and cards.

What is Microsoft Teams? Chat-based workspace in Office 365. See content and chat history anytime, including team chats with Skype that are visible to the whole team. Private group chats are available for smaller group conversations.

Kanban Tool and Microsoft Teams are primarily classified as "Agile Project Management" and "Group Chat & Notifications" tools respectively.

Some of the features offered by Kanban Tool are:

  • Kanban board
  • Kanban analytics: CFD, Lead and Cycle Time, Breakdown chart
  • Time tracking

On the other hand, Microsoft Teams provides the following key features:

  • All your content, tools, people, and conversations are available in the team workspace
  • Enjoy built-in access to SharePoint, OneNote, and Skype for Business
  • Work on documents right in the app

"Very intuitive and integrates with a lot of apps" is the primary reason why developers consider Kanban Tool over the competitors, whereas "Free" was stated as the key factor in picking Microsoft Teams.

We tried out a handful of communication tools including Slack, Microsoft Teams, and Google Hangouts Chat, before settling with Mattermost.

The customisability offered through your server's system console is unrivalled and in some ways overwhelming with the sheer amount of options that you're provided with.

All communication tools share 99% of their UI with each other, and Mattermost is no different, but that's not a bad thing. It also seems to have a less cluttered interface than the others we had tried, although I can't pinpoint the specific design choice that is the reason for this.

The fact that we can have control over all of our data (we're self-hosting it through AWS on a single EC2 instance) is also a great plus which none of the options that we looked into offered.

we were using slack and at the same time we had a subscription with office 365. after a while we hit the slack free limitation quota. and it got annoying. the search ability was useless in free tier. and more annoying whenever you search, it opens a webpage and doesn't do it in the app.

on mobile there were many cases that I didn't get notification of important discussions. rooms was the way to separate a talk. but it become tedious. each time for a new subject that you wanted to discuss, you needed to add all the team members into a new room. and after a while the room goes silent. you will end up with a tons of not-in-use rooms that you don't want to clean up them for history purposes. also the slack UI for sub discussion is very stupid. if someone forget to check the checkbox to post the subdiscussion in the main discussion thread, other team members even won't notice such discussion is in progress.

we was paying for office 365 and thought why not give the teams a shot. we won't be in worth situation than we are. we moved to teams and we loved it instantly, we had a separate tab aggregated all the files upload. we could reply on other talk. no need of creating a new room. this way room belongs to a team and not a certain topic. our sub discussion was visible to the whole team. enjoyed integration with azure and unlimited history. the best part was integration with outlook. it was a full suit solution. our stats become busy on outlook meeting events. we get weekly analyse. we didn't need to host our wiki seperated. we've created wiki per team. the communication was much more fun.
