  1. Linux client

    My team has some users on Linux, and one benefit Slack has is a Linux client. Without a Linux client on Microsoft Teams, some orgs may have to turn away in favor of Slack so everyone can participate without keeping a browser open all the time.

    • Remove the need to constantly log in

      Something has changed, but over the past 2 weeks, each time I reboot, or even resume from sleep, I'm presented with the SSO/ADFS signin page within Teams. As most users don't even notice this, most remain perpetually logged out, defeating the purpose of Teams.

        HI again everyone, I got your messages that this is not working for some of you on Android.

        For the Android app, can you confirm that you’re on the latest build?

        We shipped an update on Apr 6th (version 1416/1.0.0.2017040402) that should have fixed the repeated log-in issue. If you’re still getting logged out of the android app everyday, please let us know.

        Thanks!

          We’ve started work on this and we’re aiming for completion by the end of a month that starts with “J”. I’ll let you guess. :-D

          Thank you for your support of Teams, your great ideas, your patience and enthusiasm. We really appreciate you!

        • Please enable share control in video meeting

          We used to be able to share control in video meeting so we can do remote support.

          Please include this feature in the future releases.

          Thanks,
          Jason

          • Enable integration of Microsoft Teams to an existing SharePoint site rather than to always create a new site collection

            There have been a few ideas raised on integrating lists, OneNote, document libraries, etc. from an existing SharePoint site with Microsoft Teams, but in summary, it will be best if we could create a team upon on existing site, so that the "Files" and "Notes" tabs would directly reference the existing document library and OneNote in SharePoint. It does not make sense to have two separate sites: one for all the usual SharePoint stuff, and another just for Microsoft Teams.

              Hi everyone, thanks for your responses!

              I’ve talked with our Files team (here at Teams) and this item is planned, but note that for this item to happen, it has to be done by primarily by the SharePoint team.

              So I’m trekking the long haul across campus to knock down some doors on the SharePoint team to see if we can speed this up. Will let you know how that goes!

              It would be nice to be able to create a Teams meeting directly in Outlook similar to what Skype for Business does now.

                • Persistent notification

                  I'm using Mac and one annoying thing is that I'm not getting notified of new messages in team channels (whether I'm mentioned or not) because I missed the banner in the top right of the screen, either from being away from my desk or focusing on my second screen. The red icon is added to the actual application icon in the dock menu when I get a direct chat but there should be something here to indicate that team chats have new messages

                      • Would like the ability to create a reminder or task from a message

                        In Slack there is an ability to click message options and set a reminder to take action on that message at some later date, e.g., remind me about this tomorrow or in 1 hour, etc. I think they use their "slackbot /" commands to create this reminder. In Teams, it would be nice to have this ability or to create a task to take action on a message at some later time. Thanks!

                          I really like the suggestion of creating an alarm on a message, so you come back to it. I’ve passed this on to our engineering team.

                          Meanwhile, here’s another feature you can utilize for the same purpose — use our “bookmark” button, which is in the upper right corner of every message. This will save that message or thread directly to your profile. To access your saved messages, just click your face in the upper left corner of the product. You’ll see a tab in the left rail that says “Saved.” This is like a list of little reminders.

                          Hope that helps! :-)

                            • 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:

                                Integrate the client login with Office 365, similar to the integration of OneNote, Word, and Excel. This utilizes the current login information instead of prompting the user for credentials each time the client is started.

                                • Fix copy/paste

                                  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.

                                  Additionally when using an alternate theme like dark, copying messages out of Teams brings its background with it, meaning if you paste it somewhere else it has that dark gray background.

                                  When copying something into teams, it preserves its original font color on top of the dark background, causing problems with visibility. If you are going to allow pallette swapping themes, please add…

                                  • Relax browser support check

                                    The current browser support check is too pessimistic and prevents some modern browsers from loading Microsoft Teams. For example, up-to-date Chrome on Ubuntu Linux is not considered a supported browser, even though changing the User-Agent string to Chrome on Windows allows Teams to load without any problems.

                                    Please consider a) just letting the browser try to load Teams, b) using feature detection instead of the User-Agent string, or c) blacklisting known broken browsers instead of whitelisting if the User-Agent string is used.

                                    • Ability to re-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.

                                        • Fix OSX client updates

                                          It seems whenever the OSX client updates, we get a "An update is ready to install. Microsoft Teams is trying to add a new helper tool." authentication request, then the app quits. Or sometime the app just quits on it's own without any notification. When it launches again, the "loading" box then sometimes doesn't disappear. I really want to roll this out for our teams to start playing with, but having the app quit on us ~10 times a day without notification makes it unusable.
