  1. Ability to add an email to a chat (not channel)

    Users can current forward emails to a Team's channel, but you do not appear to have this ability within Chat.

    i would like to use an email to start a Chat with someone, 1-to-1. Could this either be added to outlook or an email address be provided for each Chat

  2. Need to be able to pick your default screen when a call comes in

    Need to be able to pick your default screen when a call comes in. I prefer a screen with a key pad comes up.

  3. Ability to set speaker settings before dialling takes place

    The speaker settings are not linked to the general PC speaker settings.
    In the Teams App, it's currently impossible to verify or select the speaker settings on the soft phone before a call has been answered.
    This is really awkward and causes unacceptable confusion and stress particularly when calling for business prospecting.

    Please sort this out urgently!

    Thanks.

  4. Environment dependent characters won’t be properly shown

    When you type environment dependent Japanese character like ”令和” (reiwa), it’s shown as a square and won’t be converted properly.

  8. Website previews with GIFs play indefinitely, can not be paused

    Some Wikipedia articles have a GIF for the first image, which Teams picks up as the image for the website preview box in chat.
    The animation can not be paused, it plays indefinitely, unlike other animations and GIFs posted in the chat.

  10. change chat with one person to a group chat to share the already written content

    change chat with one person into a group chat and let the user choose if he or she wants to copy the written content for example from todays chat within the new group chat, often you start a conversation and later on people need to join and than you don´t need to copy or rewrite the whole topic...

  14. Notifications can't work on Huawei and Xiaomi Android phones

    Notfications can't be received when Teams is in the background, e.g. on Xiaomi 9 with MIUI 10.2.33. When Teams is in the foreground, notifications can be received.

    All notification and application settings are switched on.

    Here are all phone setting screenshots and application logs. When you reiview logs, please note there should be notifications in around every 5 mintutes from 12:00.

  15. Alert function when logging in from an unregistered device

    Are there any security settings on the settings screen of TeamsAdminCenter? For example, if there is a login from a device other than usual, such as LINE for consumers, will there be a notification that another device has logged in?

  16. Make global key bindings configurable

    I see there are other bug reports for Visual Studio but I was just on a call with a colleague and I couldn't press ctrl + shift + space in IntelliJ IDEA which made coding more difficult.

    Other software that does global keystrokes are editable so that they can be remapped so there aren't conflicts, Teams should also allow for this or at the very least be able to toggle off the global keystrokes entirely.

  17. Add a Member without an email

    Add a new member without having an email for them. When I hire someone knew and want to create a schedule for them but they have not been setup in Microsoft yet it would be nice to create a Name as a place holder before they are official as a placeholder. This was possible in StaffHub.

  18. Setting to get notifications for new posts only from channel owners/moderators

    I would like to be able to set notifications on a specific channel only for new posts from the channel's owners and moderators.Right now I can set notifications for all posts in a channel, but in, say, a channel where announcements of a service being down are posted, this means I would get notifications when someone who is not an owner is just asking whether it's down. To alleviate this, I'd like to set it to only get notifications when an owner or moderator makes a new post. In addition, I'd prefer it if this notification didn't trigger on new …

  19. Stop treating new replies as new messages in the channel list

    In the channel list, whenever someone replies to a thread, it's treated as a new unread message in the channel list. This creates a lot of unnecessary noise - if I cared about this thread, I would have joined it already.

  20. Copying Board

    Currently it is not possible to copy a board. I'd setup a board which was to be used as a template for future boards but when I decided to add a new tab to create a plan from a list that already exists, the board was created and replicated as per the previous - this is perfect. However, any subsequent changes made to the original board is then reflected in the clone board - not cool!! Similarly to how a task can be copied we should be able to copy an entire board and repurpose without it being affected by…
