  1. Support for Private Channels

    Looking for the ability to create a channel that only channel members can see. Private channels are available in slack. There is an admin for private channels who is the creator, and they are the ones who add/remove users.

    Five types of public/privacy that is being asked for by users:

    - Public-Open (visible anywhere including outside the org and anyone can join)
    - Public-Invitation (visible anywhere including outside the org, must be invited)
    - Company-Open (only visible inside the org and anyone in the org can join; outside the org must be invited)
    - Company-Invitation (only visible inside the org,…

    • Include Office 365 group calendar in teams

      It would be good to be able to click on a calendar button on the left hand side to get a view of the Office 365 groups calendar as you would in the calendar app. Good for being able to look and get a glimpse of what is coming up with the group. At the moment I have to go back to the calendar to look at it.

        I’m so happy to share an update with you! The feature team has let me know that they are working hard at this and are aiming for a spring time release.

        Please comment below if you might be interested in testing or TAP, and include the industry, company size, and location of your org. We would likely want to hit a very wide range of demographics.

        Thanks,

      • Compact mode

        I really like Teams. I do. But the current chat layout is not suited for professional chats. It's way to space consuming. It looks like something imported from MSN with smiley's that take half of the screen. I would say that Slack have nailed it because they focused on the ability keeping a tight window with lots of chat text visible. In Teams the window is full and starts scrolling after like 10 sentences.

        • I want to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time

          LOG INTO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
          Original user posted:
          I would like to heave this multi-team/tenant option within “MS Teams”, like in Slack. Currently I’m in four different organization. They’re using all office365, three of them now changed from Slack to Teams. I’ve to permanently login/logout to switch to the related MS Team. This is really time consuming.

          Another user says:
          We need the ability to sign in with multiple accounts. Many of us have several O365 accounts for various reasons (consulting, etc), and we’d need to be able to access teams directly.
          This is not a federation or B2B scenario, but…

          • Linux client

            My team has some users on Linux, and one benefit Slack has is a Linux client. Without a Linux client on Microsoft Teams, some orgs may have to turn away in favor of Slack so everyone can participate without keeping a browser open all the time.

            • Ability to archive channels

              Would be nice if we had the ability to archive channels. For example: we created a channel for a specific project. Once the project is complete, we can archive that channel or at least move it out of the primary view. I could see the channel list getting large and clunky quickly with multiple projects many of which are complete.

              Also, when a conversation in the channel is complete it should be archived or hidden.

                Unfortunately due to re-prioritization this item has slipped back onto the “backlog” for the time being.

                I hope to see it move back into “working on it” soon and will continue to engage the feature team with your feedback.

                We would like to move a project (channel) between groups to keep the information, or be able to sort channels to our liking.

                  • Teams uses 600MB and is super slow!

                    Quotes from various users about memory usage and slow performance:

                    "Team is a memory hog! 100s MB! Slack is about 50."

                    "The memory consumption is over 300MB!!! This should be a priority."

                    "Just started evaluating teams, 500+ MB and 10-15% CPU. This is in a citrix VDI. Does teams use hardware rendering? If so is there a way to turn it off? I had to do this with the rest of Office."

                    "I dont understand why my Teams application only uses 70MB when other people in my organization are towards half a gig! What is causing this Teams?"

                      The feature is still being worked upon. Many different changes are going into Teams and will provide a slow but steady pace to our performance increases.

                      I don’t have any new details at the moment but hope to get some additional feedback in the next several weeks.

                          If there was an Outlook tab integrated on the left, similar to the Meetings tab (which is effectively the Outlook calendar), one could stay in Teams all day and not have to switch out.

                            Please integrate more with Planner (hopefully soon with Kanban and timeline visualisation channels for tasks) and/or with sharepoint web parts that do this, so all tasks linked in one place. And Outlook as well (for calendar and emails pertinent to chats and tasks). Until then in effect Teams is yet just another tool to use that is not completely integrated for communication + coordination.

                                Dragging and dropping attachments directly from the e-mail window without having to first drag them onto the desktop (for instance) and them from there dragging them to the files tab in Teams would make many lives so much easier.

                                There are a few suggestions to enable drag and dropping, but it seems that it is already working, at least with the desktop client, but making that work directly from an e-mail window would be very nice.

                                    • Teams needs a REAL Calendar!

                                      Would love to have a Calendar to allow those in the same team to view each other's availability and whereabouts. Would make it a lot easier to create appointments/meetings.

                                      The calendar could be a tab in a channel (so then you could have multiple calendars in one team) or could be an icon on the left app bar, instead of "Meetings" which is helpful to no one.

                                      Could also be helpful to add a way for us to add a SharePoint Team calendar.

                                        Sorry for the delay on an update on this one! I’m hunting down the status for you and will update once I have it.

                                        Also, if you are interested in participating in testing or surveys for this, just tweet me at @skprufo.

                                        #1 User Request on SharePoint:
                                        Enable integration of Microsoft Teams to an existing SharePoint site rather than to always create a new site collection

                                        There have been a few ideas raised on integrating lists, OneNote, document libraries, etc. from an existing SharePoint site with Microsoft Teams, but in summary, it will be best if we could create a team upon on existing site, so that the "Files" and "Notes" tabs would directly reference the existing document library and OneNote in SharePoint. It does not make sense to have two separate sites: one for all the usual SharePoint stuff, and another…

                                          It seems like the wiki content is not searchable with the global search

                                          A wiki you cannot search for entries is useless...
