  1. 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.

  4. 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....

  5. Open links to teams in Desktop App

    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.

  6. 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.…

  7. When granting access a Security group or Distribution list to a Team. Changes to the security groups/DL does not apply.

    When granting access a Security group or Distribution list to a Team. Changes to the security groups/DL does not apply. 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.

  8. Mute a channel - (Mute Chat is complete)

    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.

    Mute a channel is still being worked upon. The team is still hard at work on this item. No updates at this time.

  9. 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!

  10. Support for http and not only https

    Only possible to use HTTPS urls as tabs. Would be nice if HTTP would work as well.

  11. 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.

  12. Make "Follow this channel" the default setting.

    Usual Microsoft lack of UI intuition.
    Channels should be followed by default with the user unfollowing it if they wish.

  13. Open in Word/Excel/PowerPoint as Default

    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.

Please write in the comments what you would like to see with Federation and I will incorporate it into this description. -Suphatra

    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!

  16. 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…

    Hi everyone, thanks so much for this request.

    We have thought this through and decided to prioritize other user-requested items, so this one has been declined. But please don’t stop telling us what you want, because we’re still working to get many of those done. We’re listening and appreciate your support and patience.

  17. Mass add users to a channel or team

  19. Allow ANYBODY to share their screen

    Currently we have to use other services such as Google Hangout/Meet or other video conferencing apps to meet with people outside of our company, because MS Teams does not allow screen sharing for anonymous guests. Its a real pain ********** that Teams doesn't have this ability and most other services do. We meet with people outside of our company a lot so we frequently need to abandon MS Teams for these meetings.
