  1. GUID's for Groups

    I am trying to setup a FLOW notification to a Teams Group and I am getting an error.
    "error": {

    "code": "InvalidRequest",
    
    "message": "groupId needs to be a valid GUID.\r\nParameter name: groupId"

    I am not able to find the GUID for the GroupID. Where do I need to look and would it be possible to link Flow to Teams where it looks up the information based on the user?

  2. Moving a page from a personal OneNote to a Teams OneNote is insanely slow!

    If I create a page in my personal OneNote and try to move it to a Teams notebook it literally takes and hour or more to synchronize. I've also lost at least one page that never made it to the Teams notebook at all. This is a major bug that needs fixing.

  3. Sync Office365 Group Files and Microsoft Team Files

    I like that I'm able to save an attachment directly into a Group folder. Now, thinking that that same Group exists in Teams, I'd assume that the Files tab in the Teams' page contains the saved attachment. But it doesn't. I can only access that saved attachment if I go to SharePoint. Why can't we sync both Files folders? Or create an option to save an attachment into a Team Files folder.

  4. More integrations in Outlook

    When reading an email in Outlook, we have the options to "Reply", "Reply All", "Forward" etc. It would be nice to also have an option to discuss in Teams instead of having to forward to the email associated with the team. This will help get users out of the habit of clicking "Reply" and discussing directly through email.

  5. Integration for Workfront

    It would be very nice to integrate with the workfront project/task management solution so that we can manage our tasks from within the teams desktop app.

  6. Web invite for non-Teams users.

    Just like SfB had an invite feature, using the Outlook add-on, which allowed us to send a meeting invite with a web link for non-SfB users. It is also important to allow communication with non-Teams users. As of now only Teams users can communicate with each other.

  7. better integration with other Products/no Office Online

    It would be great if Teams wouldn't neccessarily open everything in the online pendants of its programs. Especially in the desktop version and apps there should be an option to open it in the preinstalled office programs without having to download the files, dig them out, open them and upload them again.
    Also a desktop app would be great, the Win10 App is only compatible with ARM chips which aren't yet found in desktop PCs

  8. Include Teams message channels in SharePoint and Dynamics 365.

    Like you can do with Yammer, it would be great to be able to insert a Teams channel into a SharePoint site or Dynamics account page, etc. In Dynamics, you can use a Yammer chat in lieu of the Activity Feed. Likewise, in a Sharepoint Group site, you can use Yammer in lieu of a team news feed, etc. It would be great to be able to do the same with a channel from Teams. There are too many app-specific ways to communicate (activity feed for Dynamics, news feed for Sharepoint, Channels for Teams), and most people don't want to…

  9. Add in E-mail and e-mail functionality

    Teams could be a one stop shop application if it also integrated e-mail. Potentially under the file icon you could put an icon for e-mail and teams could work like an e-mail client. Again - I would use this exclusively - no longer have to have skype, outlook, one drive etc... all open when its all right here. Really would be amazing.

  10. Outlook Customer Manager Integration

    Teams should be able to provide a "Tab" for Outlook Customer Manager (OCM) in a similar way to the "Planner" tab.

    This would be a key capability for the running of sales teams. In business the customer contact is the centre point and this a massive oversight to have missed this! Yes you have a Dynamics365 connector but Teams needs to spans a lot more than this!

    Team discussions about customers should also show on the OCM feeds within outlook.

    Teams, Planner and Outlook Customer Manager are all from the same era and targeting small to medium businesses. We need…

  12. OneNote Integration

    It would be nice to be able to view and utilize other sections of the the Team's OneNote notebook outside of the General_Notes section. Currently I don't see a way to see other sections within the Notebook other than opening the notebook in OneNote Online or OneNote Desktop app.

  13. Apps: Integration with Security System Alerts (other systems too)

    It would be great if there was more support for Teams to connect to systems that provide alerts. For instance, systems such as Microsoft SCEP can provide email alerts for malware detections. If we have a team for SCCM management, we may want a channel where alerts appear thanks to SCEP malware detections. From there, we could create a conversation around that alert.

    There could be integration with Carbon Black, Crowdstrike, Sophos, Symantec, etc.

  14. Ease with which Excel files can be formatted, shared and edited within a team

    i) Edit with Teams/Excel online does not offer the full range of functionality which Excel can provide. Improve the UX and range of functions for both edit options to ameliorate simultaneous remote working
    ii) Opening links to files saved in Teams is not always a seamless experience. Different experience based on browser-type
    iii) Formatting distinct text within a cell is not possible. i.e. when trying to change the text colour within a cell, the default is to re-colourise all text in that cell to that colour

  16. Add Teams Activity Feed to Outlook

    My users live in Outlook. Would be nice if you could add the activity feed as a Favorite or folder in Outlook with a count of unread items. This would allow Outlook users an easy way to know to check Teams without cluttering up their inbox with Teams notifications.

  17. better integration with outlook and groups

    Better integration with Outlook and Groups as well as Skype for Business, Slack is much more intuitive and does not pretend to be an Office365 and then does it terribly like Teams does.

  18. Hyperlinks and Searchable PDFs

    When you open a pdf, hyperlinks within the pdf don't work. Additionally, you can't search within the PDF (No Ctrl-F either). PDFs that are a few hundred pages long is far too long to scroll through to find a section that can be found in seconds using a desktop PDF application.

  19. Use the MacOS notification system instead of the built-in

    The built-in notification system is very unreliable. Have them sent to the MacOS notification system so we can keep track of them in the notification center and such.

  20. on prem Federation with Teams

    Will the new Version of Skype for Business 2019 have federation capabilities with Teams? Or is another technology developed for Teams to be able to create an "hybrid" environment that we know of in SfB Server?
