  1. support for sameroom.io ambient mode

    We use Sameroom.io very heavily to allow our team to maintain all interactions with our customers through MSFT Teams. As we cannot force our customers to use MSFT Teams, we have found this to be a very elegant solutions to keep everyone in their native collaboration tools that their companies have adopted. Sameroom.io tells me that they are waiting for MSFT to implement a feature known as "ambient mode" for them to be able to add this support on their end. They also mention that this has already been done for Skype and Telegram via your Bot framework. Can you…

  2. open notification system api

    "Let's kill email!" except all your notifications from webapps, fire off an email and while you're there actioning that you might as well email someone about what you've just been notified of... and other similar cases

    Teams needs a simple, open API for notifications that can replace email, when developing an App you just point any notification to appear in Teams instead.

    This then shifts people out of email and into to teams fully.

    Would need some rules and categorisation like email, but this would help embed Teams as where people start their work and not Outlook.

    I'd also envisage…

  3. Connect external organisations that use O365 Microsoft Teams to be able to chat, call, collaborate between different organisations

    We have multiple organisations in our group. Each has several domains. Within each organisation we use TEAMS.

    We would like to establish connection between all organisations from our group (all use Office365).

    I guess maybe we could establish some trust between our Azure Active Directories to achieve this?

    This would be very helpful!

  5. Enable Outlook media player for Skype 2019 / Cloud Voicemail

    When migrating to Exchange / Skype 2019, UM goes away and cloud voicemail is required. Cloud voicemail handles the voicemail\transcription delivery to outlook, however when received in Exchange 2019, the message does include the inline media player in outlook. Instead allows the user to download/play an mp3 attachment.

    This is a significant alteration in user workflows as they now need to launch a second application to listen to an email when transcription fails.

  6. "where" someone is whether on laptop or mobile

    I would like for my status to show whether I am on my laptop or my mobile device. Further, being able to set location based on ip address when on a laptop would be great as well. For instance... I saw a coworker was "available" but was unresponsive to messages. When I called, they said they were logged in on their phone and not at the office yet. Instead of assuming someone was really available both seeing that they were on mobile and had been inactive for the past 10 hours would have easily told me that they were not…

  7. Interoperability with standards-based conferencing systems

    It would be great if Teams meetings could be joined using conference room systems from Polycom, cisco, avaya, WebRTC etc..

    This would eliminate the need for purchasing third-party services like Pexip or Polycom RealConnect

  9. Functional integration with Sennheiser headset software NEEDED

    We use Sennheiser Office Runner headsets (softphone compatible) which have a software system that allows integration with MS Teams & Skype. Before the last 1903 update the software system was perfectly integrated with MS Teams, it

  10. copy and paste from Word to Teams works (but slow), but not Teams to Word?

    I can copy and paste a word document with text and a graphics to Teams, and that works fine. But I cannot copy and paste the same conversation from Teams back to Word? Teams' user interface needs serious work for consistency among Microsoft's own products. This is SO frustrating.

  11. Make document handling between Teams and Outlook easier

    Allow to drag documents from the files tab in Teams directly as attachment into an email in outlook (and vice versa).
    While Teams already reduced the number of internal emails a a lot, externally, we work in an environment where emails with attachments are the normal way of communication. Right now, attaching documents from Teams (sharepoint) to emails is so burdensome that it reduces the acceptance and uptake of Teams in our team.

  12. Better support for working across companies.

    I am a one man company. I work with many other companies for a client. We all have different email addresses. Many tools like the whiteboard don't like to work this way. Even messaging doesn't work well across company borders.

  13. Add support for sharing with Microsoft To-Do

    Having all MS applications; Office 365, I expect them to share data easily between them.

    Today if I use the Microsoft To-Do application and choose Share, Microsoft Teams is not a support application. Granted I can copy & paste, but integration between the two apps is expected.

  14. Just play nice with other MS products

    For me is amazing how a product developed by Microsoft itself doesn't play nice with basic other product like Office. Shared images can't be copied and paste in PPT. This is just sad.
    Also, it is very sad that every time Teams lost focus and I active the window again, I have to click in the text area to type again in the chat I just left. How you develop this? How your QA team doesn't detect such a basic misbehavior?

  15. Teams to be interoperable with standard video or work as S4B!

    There is a whole world out there that needs to communicate!
    To make Teams your new, and only, way to do video, NOT being able to connect to Standard based solutions, or for videoservices, no matter brand, coexist with your solutions, the way you made it possible with S4B. Without an open communication, your solution should be sent back to the 19th Century! It is simply wrong thinking! Sorry, but this is the truth!
    A very, very unhappy customer!!!

  16. Incident information should be posted in the Service health when the incident occurs in Teams

    When Teams related incidents would occur, the information could sometimes not be shown in the affected tenants’ Service health.
    I would strongly request that the incidents’ information should be always posted for the affected tenants’ Service health 100% in future.

  18. Having the ability to 'pop out' a thread much like conversations are popped out in Skype would be ideal for our team. Is this a possibility?

    Our team currently uses a daily chat in Skype for communication. We are also piloting Teams. There is some reluctance to use teams for daily chat because it can get congested. Having the ability to 'pop out' a thread so that it is separated from all of the others would be ideal.

  19. Teams Only cannot initiate chat to Skype users on Islands mode

    When a user is in Teams Only mode, they cannot send a chat to a user who is on Skype. The only way a Skype user can chat with a Teams user is if the Skype user initiates the chat from their end to the Teams user.

  20. Enable to delete optional Notebook suggestions from the list when adding a new OneNote tab in Microsoft Teams

    When I add a new OneNote tab on Teams, choices for OneNote Notebooks will be shown including the Notebook which is already added to the Teams tab.
    I would like to delete optional choices from the list. Even if the OneNote data itself was deleted from the SPO site, the deleted Notebook still be shown in the list.
