  1. Complete Skype for Business Integration into Teams

    Honestly, this is a tall order due to the fact that Teams was not launched this way in the first place, but my real world experience, and feedback from the field, is that having Skype-for-Business-like functions in Teams (chat/Presence/etc) be separate from Skype for Business itself is not only confusing for many users, but inhibits adoption. Users want to consolidate the number of apps they use, not increase it. I personally find this to be true.

    Teams is an incredible tool with so much potential, but living and breathing in Skype for Business, like so many of us do, Teams…

    • Joining a Team

      CHANGE PROMPT:
      Change "Add team" to "Add or join a team": I avoided this button because I thought it would always create a new team. It wasn’t evident to me that I could browse for existing teams there too.

      PREVIEW A TEAM:
      Provide the ability to preview a Team without immediately joining, to see what the reason for the Team is and what Channels exist. It’s a little cumbersome to have to join, realize the Team isn’t what you thought it was, and leave.

          • Unread message count on Chat, Teams, channels

            Right now there is a unread message count badge on the Activity tab icon (I guess you only get that if you have followed any channels?). However I would much rather prefer if the badge was on the Chat and Teams tab icons so I can see where there is activity. Currently collapsed teams are also indicated having activity. Expanded teams should have the same indication.

            Furthermore, the unread activity badge on both the Activity and the application icon count unread channels. I would prefer a message count.

              Hi everyone, thanks for flagging this. Sorry it’s been frustrating!

              We’re reviewing all your comments and feedback very closely and coming up with a plan. I’ll have another update soon once the folks who head up Notifications and Framework get back to me with an update.

                Hi everyone! Many of you had emailed me when we rolled out “show user actively typing” in the chat area, that you’d like this in the channels area too. I’ve merged the tickets together to help you build support for this idea, and I’ve also sent it into engineering for a review.

                Keep submitting your thoughts on this item and encouraging others to vote. Its a great idea.

                Create a native Calendar tab. I am able to create a Calendar app in the Teams sharepoint site and embed it in a Tab as a WebSite tab but that could all be automated with a Calendar tab.

                    • Search Through Attached Content

                      The search engine looks for the keyword in the chat history. Would be very helpful if it also searched through attached documents such as .txt .doc. Sharepoint has that funcionality.

                        Used to be that I showed as green when I was active. Now it's constantly yellow, making it look like I'm not active.

                          Hi everyone, thanks for the additional comments after I marked this as “completed.”

                          I’ve looked through the comments and elevated this to the dev team. They have informed me they are working on this and are starting testing now. So, presence will soon be more active to your machine activity and not just your Teams activity.

                          Thank you for keeping this ticket alive so we can truly “complete” this issue!

                              As I create more and more teams, I need to be able to group or categorize them. It seems like the only native groupings are "favorites" or "more". I would like to be able to create other categories. Once I get over 30 teams, grouping them into detailed categories is going to be imperative to stay organized.

                                  You can do this! The best way to do it is using a distribution list (DL). For example, when inviting users to a team, just adding a DL like everyone@mycompany.com will automatically invite everyone in the DL.

                                  Let me know if this makes sense, or if you have any more questions.

                                  Sincerely,

                                  The latest version of the Windows App (1.0.00.10951) makes the entire entry bold (not only the name) when including another team member using @[name]. If i delete and retry a few times I can sometimes get the name added without bolding, but it's very inconsistant (and quite annoying).

                                    IMPROVE actual markdown:

                                    Disable auto-formatting of markdown
                                    *italic* not *bold* or _italic_
                                    Make it the SAME as GITHUB
                                    https://guides.github.com/features/mastering-markdown/
                                    which is closer to DaringFireball
                                    http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/

                                    IMPROVE for mobile:
                                    Please add markdown support for Android client.

                                    IMPROVE for other languages:
                                    Currently the code formatting doesn't work for german keyboard users due to the system expecting another character after the `
                                    Due to that, Teams does not recognize the ` and interprets it as any other character.
                                    I think that needs to change.

                                      Every time you create a task in planner via Microsoft Teams and assign it to someone in your organisation/team it would be nice to see that task in outlook as well. I want to know and to be alerted that I have a task assigned to me without having to lon on to Microsoft Teams.
                                      It would be great to have a place to see how many tasks have been created in a team/channel and the status of each one.

                                      • I want a private channel

                                        Currently, teams can create public and private teams, but they also need to have the ability to restrict who can view channels on their private team. This is because teams are created for each project, but there is information that only administrators want to share. Also, since the administrator wants to delete inactive teams and channels, it is not necessary to enter the room, so I want you to visualize it rather than hide it. Thank you for your consideration.

                                        • Wiki needs image embedding

                                          I was working on a wiki article for a channel and wanted to embed a picture. The best I could do was paste a URL. I would like to embed an image in sharepoint or just a plain image from my pc so I can talk about it in the wiki section and aid the reader understand better.
