  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!
        Suphatra

        • Integrate fully with Planner, Sharepoint, and Outlook Tasks, Calendar

          Please integrate more with Planner (hopefully soon with Kanban and timeline visualisation channels for tasks) and/or with sharepoint web parts that do this, so all tasks linked in one place. And Outlook as well (for calendar and emails pertinent to chats and tasks). Until then in effect Teams is yet just another tool to use that is not completely integrated for communication + coordination.

            Hi everyone,

            For this item, we’re still working on this and you have likely already started to see updated Planner and SharePoint integrations over the last two months (namely, the ability to “Bring your own SharePoint Online” and also Planner updates outlined here: https://medium.com/@mansoor.malik/a-few-updates-to-planner-integration-in-microsoft-teams-6e9683d1e085). There’s still more to come though!

            Why I’m writing is because I need your help on a related, but different item. Another team, that specializes in our third party integrations, was interested in hearing what tools you like to use and would like to see in Teams.

            Just enter your favorites here:
            https://1drv.ms/xs/s!AryUNzh1ogZzif9Ba8ln1ps_y4Z_eA

            That will help us tremendously! THANK YOU for your continued support of Teams.

            Sincerely,
            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 folks,

                BYOS — Bring Your Own SharePoint! You can now integrate an existing SharePoint Online library into Microsoft Teams.

                Just add your own SharePoint by clicking the little plus sign in your channel, which is next to the last tab in any channel.

                Note — this will only work for existing SharePoint Online libraries. We do not have support for migrating existing on-premise SharePoint into Teams.

                Thanks and just tweet me if you have any questions.

                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

                      • Name a chat

                        When you start a chat with some people, this chat appears in the Chat tab with the names of people in the chat, and there is no way to rename it. It would be helpful to be able to rename a chat.

                              Hey guys, sorry for the double email on this. I got some details wrong. Whoops! Let me start over…

                              A few months ago, you provided this feedback. We went and created this feature. Now you can see the time and date stamps in the product. Yay!

                              Note: When a message is sent on the same day, you won’t see the date (unless you hover) — you’ll only see the time. After the same day, you’ll see a timestamp of the exact date and time.

                              Ping me if you have questions on this! See contact info below.

                            • SSO using ADFS / AzureAD

                              Is there a way to have the desktop app not prompt for credentials? We use ADFS and AzureAD and opening the Teams Desktop App requires an email address and password instead of just passing it through?

                                Hi everyone, thanks so much for your feedback. With our GA release, we have enabled SSO on Windows. We now support Native ADAL integration.
                                Hope you all have experienced the change and enjoying smooth login experience.

                                Today only 10 participants are allowed in chats.

                                Its essential to remove this limit.

                                • Teams icon doesn't appear in O365 after enabling in settings

                                  Added in settings. A few hours later no sign of teams anywhere. Found a link to the domain and that works. It is a preview I guess... but if the option is there, would kind of expect it to appear in the App menu etc.

                                    Thanks for your patience – the Teams tile now appears in the O365 waffle! Let us know what you think!

                                  • 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

                                        A team template!! Much like sharepoint document site or site templates that contain a specific layout and set of documents this would be amazing for a team template. We could deploy a team for each project we had that had a preset assignment of planner tasks and documents attached to it and a preset of channels that goes with that team. Could really make a big difference in the way we deploy and use teams.
