  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.

    • Enable screen sharing without video call

      Enable an option to start a screen sharing session without starting a video call. This is a common use case in our organization.

        Hi everyone — good news and bad news. Good news is that I have an update from Engineering. Bad news is that they just let me know this has hit some road blocks and we won’t be hitting July’s target date. This is now expected to be delivered in September.

        I am sorry for the delay and will update you as this gets nearer to completion! Feel free to ping me if you want to be a beta tester for this feature!

        Thanks and hope everyone is enjoying their summer,
        Suphatra

      • 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! :-)

                      Hi there,

                      I would like to be able to install for all users of a PC via and MSI, the current installer installs into the users Appdata which means each user has to install manually.

                      I would like to see a "proper" installer than loads it to Program Files for all users

                        Hi, thanks for your idea! I have a few follow up questions — would you mind sharing in the comments below?

                        1. Do you want install privileges so that you can load the program for all users?
                        2. Or do you want a central repository which all users can access and deploy programs?
                        3. Do you want the access given to specific users only for the installer to deploy programs?

                        Cheers,
                        Suphatra

                        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…

                        • 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.

                          ---

                            Threads in the conversation make it too difficult to notice new messages. Let's keep this simple and have conversation history ordered chronologically. If users want to make a "post" and have a discussion on that post, this isn't the right forum. They should use Yammer.

                            • 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.

                                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.

                                  When there is a good post or conversation, you should be able to archive it :
                                  - send it by email (with potential files attached)
                                  - export to PDF or Text
                                  - save to a Sharepoint page

                                    Why we cannot use our group in Active Directory to create group in Teams?

                                      Hi everyone, I wanted to check in on this ask because it’s died down since GA, and also because the ask is not totally clear to me.

                                      Right now, we provide a way during the team creation process for you to select an existing Office 365 group. Are you asking to be able to do this same thing, but outside of Teams?

                                      Do let me know!

                                      Sincerely,
                                      Suphatra

                                      When sharing "screen", add an option to share specific application rather than share the whole screen. I've got a 34" ultrawide and sharing the whole screen with someone using a small 13" laptop screen is untenable.

                                        • Support native system emoji

                                          For consistency it would be nice to see the operating system's natively rendered emoji font. W10 Anniversary has great emoji that fit the Microsoft design style very well.
