  1. Change which Tab is default landing page for a Team and/or Channel

    Right now the conversation tab is the default landing page for a Team and/or Channel.
    I want to be able to have a SharePoint site landing page in a tab and that tab be the default tab open when you navigate to a team or channel.

    Think of it like a landing page for that team. You may not want it to drop right into Conversations. If you can have a SharePoint page with a Microsoft Teams conversations web part, you get the best of both worlds.
    I can see a lot of scenarios where you'd want the chat window…

    • Incorrect status in teams

      We have noticed that our Teams statuses are consistently incorrect. Even when some team members are active in Teams they are shown as "away" or "offline". For example, although I can see that my status is "active", my colleagues see my status as "offline".

      Can you please fix this bug?

        Hi — My apologies for the delay in updating this item. We rolled out a fix a year ago for a specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you were still active on the device. We thought this had fixed the “incorrect status” issue. From comments below, it sounds like people are still seeing issues.

        If you are still having issues, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with device info and detailed repro steps to teamsml@microsoft.com.

        Thanks all!

If a user leaves the company or if we have new users, it is a manual process to add or remove them from a Team. Since we can select a Security group or Distribution list, changes to either should be reflected on the Team members.

            partially done  ·  Warren responded

            The zoom feature has released to the public ring. Using CRTL + or CTRL – zoom in and out on a Windows PC.

            I need to correct the information I provided last month about MAC. It appears the MAC version is still in testing and hasn’t yet gone out to the public. It is “In Testing” but will be coming to the public soon!

            The item tracking this specific update can be found at: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/admin/v3/suggestions/16933183/activity

            There now is a UI element that tells you your current zoom level and a Setting within the UI to preset your zoom preference.

            Since the zoom feature could very well cover the vast majority of user needs, based on the majority of comments and feedback, I will flag this item as Partially Done.

            Thank you for all the feedback and support!

            • Using Teams Offline

              MULTIPLE USERS reporting offline needs:

              ---

              Generally want to use Teams offline:

              If I am offline it would be great to browse through Teams and Channels in case I have to lookup some informations.

              Also viewing the latest notes in "Notes" on teams would be great.

              It would be enough to have "Read only" - for the moment my Teams app does not even open when I am offline

              Compared on my mobile - I can read all posts while I am offline.

              ---

              Edit while offline:

              just been using teams wiki to take and share notes in a meeting.…

                  The team is still working on this fix, as part of a larger design change. Given internal feedback, it has been decided the current design isn’t ready for primetime.

                  In the meantime, someone discovered that triple clicking will actually select all of the text. I know we want the real fix, but thought I’d share.

                  Thanks for your patience.

                • Let me @ Mention the user's first name instead of their DisplayName

                  Hi,
                  When mentioning someone with @, is it possible to use the user alias instead of the Display Name? In Slack for example, it is possible to choose whether to display the full name or the user name when being mentioned. Could be great to have it on MS Teams because it is shorter in messages where many mentions are provided.

                  • Add team wide reminders

                    We have weekly bot reminders currently on Slack and that would be a big advantage to getting our whole team moved over.

                    For example:
                    - Tuesdays at noon: Reminder - team meeting in 30 minutes
                    - Last Friday of month: Finish submitting hours
                    - etc....

                        I'd love to keep groups/channels in my list, but mute a channel so I don't get those. I get notified whenever some tags a channel eg @General, it's super distracting!

                        Also would like the possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received for a user that chooses to mute some group chat.

                        • Sort conversations so the latest posts are at the top rather than bottom

                          Messages currently come in with latest content at the bottom of the page. Would be good to be able to re-sort so the conversations with the most recent traffic are at the top. Also, move the "Start a new conversation" to the top so that its clear you're adding a new conversation and not responding to a prior thread (we have a lot of newbies who don't use the "reply" because the compose bar is on the bottom, and thus end up creating a bunch of new threads accidentally).

                          Conversations in Groups starts at the top and forces old ones…

                            We have thought this through and decided to prioritize other user-requested items, so this one has been declined.

                            It would be great if Teams would have the ability to always launch the desktop app when opening Office documents as opposed to launching the online version.

                            Rest of teams is awesome.

                              Channels should be followed by default with the user unfollowing it if they wish.

                                  Hi folks, I am collecting feedback on this so we can determine prioritization and user need.

                                  Please comment in the thread below and/or tweet to me at @skprufo about how this affects you, how you currently add members, and who you think would benefit from this in your organization.

                                  Thank you!
                                  Suphatra

                                  SITUATION: When you receive a link to a Teams file or folder, or really anything in Teams, like a Planner task - it sends you to the sharepoint site, regardless of whether you have the Desktop App installed and even if it is open.

                                  RESOLUTION: Make links to any Teams elements open directly in the Teams Desktop App

                                  This will save so much time and frustration from people, and also make Teams seem like a more integrated solution for everyone.

                                  • Separate speakers for Notification Audio vs Call Audio (Desktop)

                                    When headphones are always plugged in, it is easy to miss a notification. An option to specify different speakers for Call Audio vs Notification Audio would be awesome. Similar to Skype.

                                        Thanks for the suggestion! We have been hearing this request from more users, so it has been raised with the feature teams. I’ll keep you updated as I learn more.

                                      • Sharepoint tab linked to a list, a library or even a specific view

                                        At present, when adding a SharePoint tab, you can only link to a site. Since sites may be shared among several teams, team members will still have to browse the site to find material relevant for the actual channel. It would be nice if a tab could pull up a specific custom list, library or even a specific view of a library. That would keep stuff on the site in context for that particular channel.

                                          Users reporting multiple copy/paste issues for text:

                                          1. Can't paste multi-messages. Often, only the first line pastes, the rest disappear. As one user puts it: "On the Windows 10 desktop client it is nearly impossible to copy multiple messages from the chat history. A fraction of a second after letting go of the mouse, the highlight collapses down to a single message."

                                          2. Can't paste in general: "Copy & Paste is tempermental, when i try to paste text in from other sources it simply doesn't paste, but then if I only copy a few (3-6) words then it does. It…
