We’re making it easier to try Stack Overflow for Teams

Today, we’re thrilled to announce that our Basic version of Teams no longer requires a personal or corporate credit card to get started. No more pestering your boss for their sacred purchase card or putting down your personal card to only set several different calendar reminders to make sure you cancel in time before getting charged.

Building something is rewarding. Building something that works and solves headaches and hassles for people is especially rewarding.

We built Stack Overflow for Teams because people had a real need for a new knowledge management tool that helped them spend less time searching for information and more time building great stuff. 

Over the last four years, hundreds of thousands of people started using Teams. They told us how it solved their headaches and hassles, they suggested new features and functionality, and they gave us feedback. We listened and built, creating a solid virtuous cycle for ourselves and our customers. 

During this listen and build process, we discovered another real need—people need to try our product without a commitment and we need to give them enough time to build their knowledge base and really experience the product.     

Today, we’re thrilled to announce that our Basic version of Teams no longer requires a personal or corporate credit card to get started. No more pestering your boss for their sacred purchase card or putting down your personal card to only set several different calendar reminders to make sure you cancel in time before getting charged. 

Plus, we’re increasing the free trial from 14 days to 30 days. We all know how fast a 2-week sprint ends up being. We’ve extended the trial to 30 days to allow users more time to build up their knowledge base, add teammates and valuable tags, and discover some of the different features in a private environment versus what they might be familiar with on stackoverflow.com. 

We’re committed to evolving and improving our solution for our customers. We’re dedicated to making Stack Overflow for Teams the best collaboration tool in the market. 

To start your 30 day trial without a credit card, visit stackoverflow.com/teams and experience how Teams can help you and your teammates have more time to build great things.   

A bit of history on Stack Overflow for Teams

Since launching Teams nearly four years ago, we continue to be humbled. Demand for a central collaboration and knowledge sharing tool has only gone up over time. Regardless of a company’s size or the industry they identify with, people need information and they need a centralized place to find it.

Our enterprise solution launched first. It’s ideal for large teams with more robust security needs to keep their proprietary data safe. Shortly after, we launched the Basic tier of Stack Overflow for Teams, allowing our users to quickly and easily try out (and fall in love) with our cloud-based solution that resides alongside our Public Q&A solution we’re best known for—stackoverflow.com. Then, just nine months ago, we launched our Business tier with premium features like single sign-on, community support, and analytics. Throughout this evolution of the Teams suite, we’ve kept our finger on the pulse of our customer’s needs. 

Thanks to our hundreds of thousands of Teams users for their commitment to Teams over the years, including the time they’ve spent providing feedback on the product.  We’re committed to evolving our product by taking product suggestions from various internal teams that work directly with customers. This includes our Community Development, Research & Design, Sales, Marketing and of course our Product team that commit to spending hours each week meeting with current and prospective customers.
