  1. Add unread notification bubble to app icon

    Hi,

    Slack provides a notification bubble with the count of unread mentions. It also provides a notification bubble with a dot if there are no unread mentions, but there are channels with unread messages (example attached).

    Currently, Teams includes a bubble with the count of unread mentions, but there is no way to tell from the app icon in the dock if there is other unread activity. Could you please add this feature?

    Thanks,

    Matt

  4. Rubrics, marking and one note

    Good morning. I have a few questions. The first question relates to the use of rubrics on teams. I really enjoy working with the rubrics, but I find that the options for entering marks are limited. I struggle to upload or create rubrics with different mark scales. If the first category is out of 10 and the next category is out of 5, I struggle to create the rubric. Furthermore, rubrics give you the option to award a mark between two or three points. This is also not available. It also does not give you the option to work with…

  5. Self-correcting software to handle event errors

    When my computer starts acting up as it is now with a nasty keyboard lag I start investigating the problem checking my drivers and opening up the event viewer. When I see errors I start trying to track them down using google searches. This often leads me to Microsoft forums where Microsoft people are trying to direct users how to navigate fixing issues that Microsoft should be automatically fixing. It is nonsense that Microsoft expects typical users to fix software problems. When a Microsoft program detects an issue it should handle the issue - period. Not just post an error…

  6. API to list all user's teams, channels and recent posts in channels

    Going through all user's teams, channels and most recent posts in Teams is not a very performing process to do even if you had teams and channels ids prestored.

    The purpose would be to provide "latest topics/chat threads in your Teams" -view. Sorta similar like Yammers aggregate view to help user to get a glance of "what's happening" in his Teams.

    For example asking a bot "what's happening in my teams?" or this there could be a custom report/view (in Teams tab or in SharePoint) to user about what's the activity.

    The API call could return some data about the…

  7. API for Teams custom status messages

    Teams custom status message just rolled to clients. Is there a way to update the status via Graph (or other ) API, calling the client / updating a file or any other non manual way currently / nearby?

    It would open up interesting possibilities to update statuses (off duty, on duty for example).

  8. Notifications for unread messages should be visible on icon

    There is no notification visible for any new messages or for unread messages. If there are unread messages in this application these should be visible on icon. This may be indicated just by a Red dot. No need to show numbers if that is difficult.

  9. "Follow" Specific Users

    Would be great to select specific users to "follow" like Twitter. Or even something like a setting where I only get updates from users in my "favorites" contacts list. Most of the time I dont need updates from all these channels, I'd rather select specific people or a smaller group to get updates from when they post content. Thanks!

  10. Allow Teams video to run outside of a Microsoft Operating System

    The fact that the Teams Client is reliant on a Microsoft OS makes it expensive to build out MS Teams Video Room spaces. Managing remote video spaces that are running for example MS Surface PC's or Intel NUC pc's in order to host Teams is costly, operational inefficient and security concern driven. Teams is too fat. The Teams Client used by the end user on the their PC's can be fat, it can be OS driven, with all the bells and whistles, but please simplify the Teams Video Room System requirements. It should be simplified to run outside of a…

  11. checklist planner

    Planner Checklist item additions:

    1) Provide the ability to assign one or more people to Planner checklist items within a card.
    (The card itself has assigned people but each Planner checklist item should also have assigned people.)

    2) Provide the ability to assign due dates to Planner Checklist items within a card.
    (The card itself has a due date but each Planner checklist item should also have their own due dates)

  15. Increase Throttling Limit when accessing from Graph API

    I am trying to automate our Teams structure, by using the Graph API, and keep running into the throttling limits, which I cannot find any documentation for.
    It seems to be the Skype backend that throws the ActivityLimitReached error and it seems really really low.
    One of the issues is that in order to get teams structure (team main info, channel and tabs) you actually need to perform alot of graph queries, which all count towards your ActivityLimit, i guess.
    So basically, increase the throttling limit (not just a little, but alot!) or give us some other way of accessing…

  16. Forward calls

    Add Call Forwarding ("Redirect Call") Options to "Auto Attendant" (both working hours and after hours) and "Call Queues".

    We use an outside phone receptionist service to answer all our calls.

    This feature change will be helpful for businesses who want to forward to their mobile phone or an after-hours support service desk.

  18. The "Teams" should have nofications like the normal chat does and / or normal chat should be able to @team / @general / @all / @something

    The Teams don't have notifications but general chat does. General chat can't do chat room wide mentions. Combine Teams and Chat and / or add notifications to teams and / or add channel wide mentions in chat.

  20. Open Office documents as embedded OLE objects on Windows

    On Windows please open the document as an embedded OLE object or at least open Office desktop applications by default and without asking confirmation.
