"It looks slightly less clean on Chrome compared to Microsoft Edge, but it's a minor difference. There is room for improvement in user experience, like positions of elements.""Although Microsoft is working on it, having a centralized network instead of creating multiple networks based on a domain would help businesses with multiple companies or child companies.""If you are using other applications that are tough to integrate into the environment, that can cause limitations.""Microsoft should work on templating and provide some built-in templates so that the changes can automatically roll out to all the configured communities.""Yammer has very limited features.""Yammer should include more integrations.""The interface is clunky and could be improved.""The permissions are a little bit over-complicated."
