  1. Allow Group Chats to be Converted into a Team Channel

    There are times when people start a conversation as a chat with a few people, and the chat gathers momentum and eventually becomes a regular chat room. It would be great to be able to convert a private chat into a Team Channel. The way it could work is, if the members of the chat are all part of the same team, you have a function where you can select that team from a dropdown list, and "Convert to Team Channel". The private chat would become a permanent team, and all previous chat history would be retained in the newly…

  2. Hide a user from Microsoft Teams

    It would be very beneficial to be able to hide a user from showing as a Microsoft Teams user. Right now it is super confusing for users when old staff members whose mailboxes are still being used show in Microsoft Teams. There is currently no option to hide these users from showing as contacts in chats.

  3. Make saved Outlook attachments visible to Teams

    Saving email attachments to a team Sharepoint site (Outlook 2016, Save to Onedrive, Group files) leaves them hidden from Teams. This is because the attachments are saved to the team's Sharepoint main folder, which is not associated with a channel. This is confusing to the user, who wonders why the files do not appear in Teams. The user has to know to open Sharepoint and manually relocate the attachments to the desired channel after saving them.

    One solution would be to expose channels in Outlook 2016, so the user can select the channel where the files should be saved.

    Another…

  4. Allow rearranging contacts and groups

    The new contact list is now live but it's missing the ability to rearrange contacts and groups by drag and drop like you can now do with teams and recent conversations.

    I have quite a few contacts and large groups so sorting them would be very useful.

  5. Collapse/expand conversations (hide/show replies)

    Users are asking for a few different things:


    1. Collapse/expend all button -- single click to collapse or expand all threads

    2. Admin setting for collapse/expand

    3. Button to re-collapse a thread once its been expanded (right now you have to navigate to another channel in order for the thread to re-collapse)

    Please add more granular requests in the thread below.

    Item 1 and 2 are Under Review.

    Item 3 has been Completed.

  6. Teams Presence should be 'real-time'.

    Having presence delays of up to 4 minutes makes presence largely useless. Having to resort back to typing 'are you free now' after calls, because I can't tell if they are still in the meeting, or have started another meeting or call. Or trying to call somebody and get rejected and a message saying "I'm in a call"

  7. Enable editing of Wiki pages in the Teams Mobile App

    Currently Wiki pages are read only in the Mobile App. Please make them read/write so we can make a quick change to a Wiki page while on the go. Thanks :-)

  8. Flashing Icon in task bar for unread messages

    Teams icon pinned in taskbar doesn't blink orange anymore when I receive new messages. I cannot find an option to turn this. Was this removed?

  9. Create Planner Task from a Teams conversation

    I would like to easily create a planner Task form a Teams conversation.
    e.g.: @Microsoft task: Enable Planner Task creation from a Teams conversation

    A Suggestion should help to set additional information e.g.: due date
    By default the bucket should match the channel

  10. Rearrange all Tabs within a Channel

    I know a similar request is marked as "We have this!", but it's not possible to move all tabs.

    I can rearrange the tabs that I add, but Conversations and Files cannot be moved.

    I would like to have a channel that starts with a Planner tab, and another that starts with a Wiki tab.

    Not everyone channel will be based around conversations, so it should be possible to move the Conversation and File tab to the far right.

  11. Meeting Call Me Back Number

    After entering a meeting, if you would like Teams to call you back you need to enter a phone number in the Call Me Back box. (See attached file.) It would be great if this box would remember the last number called and there was a user setting to save a default number. This would save you from having to enter in the number every single time.

    We are happy to inform you that you are able to join meetings by choosing “Call me” from the join dropdown on iOS & Android. To use this feature, you need to provide a phone number where you can receive a phone call. If the call is accepted, your meeting audio will switch to the cellular connection. Your personal and work phone numbers, if added to your account, will be available for selection automatically.

    The team is working to release this feature for Desktop. I don’t have dates to share at this time, but will keep you posted.

    Thanks!

  12. Lets make contacts great again!

    Can we please have an awesome next-level contacts interface and management!? Pretty sure we were promised cool stuff in SfB that never came :(

    While contacts management might seem like a pretty boring feature (because it is), its one of the most pivotal parts of the app. The whole point of the app is to communicate. So if you can't find or interact with contact information easily, it can be very frustrating!!!

    The first thing that needs to be resolved is the fact that the "Calls" tab is the central location for contacts. That doesn't see right or make sense…

  13. Show Week Number In Windows 10 Tray Calendar App

    Hi Windows experts!

    I can see week numbers if I start the Calendar App on Windows 10 but I'm not able to see week number if I just click date and time in the taskbar and the small calendar pops up. I would like for week numbers to show in the taskbar pop up calendar.

    Have a very good day!

  15. meeting reminders

    Regardless of where a meeting is created, Outlook or Microsoft Teams, the 15 minute reminders and the like should generate a notification from Microsoft teams to the user, either a popup dialogue window or otherwise.

  16. Video screen size when sharing screen

    When video chatting and sharing your screen, the video window is very small and you can't resize it.

    When you are in an active meeting and have video and screen sharing enable:
    1. Able to resize video preview
    2. Able to use multiple monitors with video on one and screen share on the other.
    3. Able to move the video around the screen freely.
    4. Overlay video on full screen screenshare.
    5. Able to freely resize your split screen with video and screenshare.

  17. Search Public and Private Teams

    Users report its very difficult for their peers to find a team that they have created. This hinders their ability to increase team membership.


    Other users report its frustrating that they can't just search ALL the teams at their organization -- that only a small fraction are surfaced to them in their "Suggested" view.


    The capability to view Public Teams when you click on "Create Team" is great.

    HOWEVER... it would be a better user experience if there was a prominent button or link called "Search for Teams".

    Teams needs this discovery capability to avoid the duplication of Team areas…

    Unfortunately we hit some snags and this has moved back to “working on it”. The team is working to make some corrections and I hope to have a release date in the near future. I’ll keep you posted with what I hear.

  18. Move planner tasks to another team

    We have created a planner tab in most of our teams. Sometimes a task on the plannerboard has to be moved to another team (e.g. next step on a task has to be executed by a different team), which now has to be done by deleting the task in the original team and adding one in the other team with copying data from the original task.

    Possible solution: when editing a task it displays the teamname and bucketname in the left top. When you click on the name you can select a different team (only teams you are subscribed to),…

    Good news, this feature is partially done. :)

    Planner tasks can now be copied to other plans. To copy a task, click on the “…” menu on the task. From there, you can select a different plan to copy the task to.

  19. Add option to have non-threaded channels

    I'd like the capability when I add a new channel to make it non-threaded. Threaded conversations are great for some channel topics, but other more casual channels get too cluttered with multiple threads. I'd prefer to have the flexibility to decide which format I want when I create the channel.

  20. Non Persistent VDI

    Support for Non-Persistent VDI. Currently Teams desktop App installs in the user App folder this means it can't be placed on the base image of non persistent VDI environments.

    Are there any plans to provide an alternative install for VDI. Currently we are installing Teams at login for VDI users as a work around.
