  1. New coexistence options between SfB and MTeams enable use of Blynclight and/or Busylight?

    With new coexistence set up options between SfB & MTeams, does this mean Embrava Blynclight or Kuando Busylight can be used w Teams?

  2. for one-person companies useless

    I am a business consultant = one person company working with different customers. Teams is useless as long as I cannot form teams outside of my organization.
    And Skype4B (the reason why I bought this license) does not connect to my Office365Exchange => cannot setup meetings with customers in advance.

  3. Copypasting text

    I need to be able to copy-paste text easily from the chat box to MS Word, MS Outlook, Notepad or other/non-Microsoft applications without extraneous text, ex. message sender.

  4. Teams in Outlook Customer Manager integrieren

    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…

  5. Create a better, portable and resettable caching system

    The Teams caching system as it currently is (January 2019) is totally untransparant, unmaintainable, unportable and slow.

    - Local (Client) caches are spread all over the device. This guy even created a powershell script to clean it: https://blog.valeconsulting.co.uk/2018/09/28/clear-the-microsoft-teams-client-cache/ and these caches as they are, are not portable or configurable at all (they reside in the users profile) eliminating any offloading in VDI infrastructures
    - Web caches are even more terrible, it can take up to 3 days before a simple logo change is visible, let alone core Governance policy changes that can take forever to get applied, in the meanwhile…

  6. Make new conversation UI for desktop align with mobile versions.

    Make new conversation UI for desktop align with mobile versions.

    Right now, there are a *LOT* of new conversations that get started as someone is attempting or meaning to reply to an existing conversation. The fact that the replay and start a new conversation are often next to each other, and visually very similar as text input it's easy to confuse them.

    The problem with new threads is they become disconnected from those who are actually replying to an existing thread.

    This isn't the case in mobile, specifically android, where the new conversation is a round button in the lower-right…

  7. Conversation Threads and linking with sharepoint

    Hi Microsoft Team, We are executing entire project using Microsoft Teams as a medium. we identified two problems majorly

    1. when we start a new message (Thread) and we may get number of replies say 80 replies for one single message. The latest message should come first as like outlook. but here we need to scroll all the replies to see the required message.

    2. Even though SharePoint and Microsoft teams are Microsoft Packages we don't have option to link Microsoft Teams to SharePoint. If we will get this potion this would be a great option for the teams to…

  8. AI integration with Outlook

    Allow Outlook users to add a Teams connector. Through the connection, Outllook can make some suggestion that certain Outlook conversation should be published into certain Teams Channel. If users approve it, system can automatically beautify the content and publish it to Teams Channel for better knowledgebasing.

  10. Get a better feedback tool.

    Tool doesn't work well on Android. Not much better anywhere else. Sort like Teams.

  11. devops

    Serious issue: with Azure DevOps Build agent version. See attached, this is pretty serious in terms of providing a SaaS version of Team System, that is fundamentally not able to create up-to-date containers, targeted at the windows (current) platform, with default build agents. They are out-of-date, and need to be synchronized with the Windows O.S. Level (current).

  12. Looking for replies to emails that @mention a team channel to be nested in the Teams chat.

    Recently had an email thread that included an @mention to a Team channel. Each reply to the email created a new chat thread within the channel. Would be much better if it instead created a nested thread similar to the "conversations" view in Outlook.

  13. Need for a "continue chat in Skype" button during transition

    To address interop issues during transition from Skype (both consumer and SfB) to Teams. Teams needs a "Skype" button that allows you jump into Skype quickly to avoid interop issue. Need to share a file with someone still using SfB - hit the Skype button to open a Skype chat with that peron, need to screen with someone - hit the Skype button, need a group chat - hit the Skype button. The button could be configured to only show if the person you were talking to was still using SfB. This would really help smooth the transition from. It's…

  14. defender

    Windows Defender firewall blocks the network access of MS Teams whenever a new version is downloaded and prompts for access. This was not an issue for Skype for Business.

  16. Using multiple functionality across different devices

    I would like to be able use the mobile app to carry out a voice call while using the app on my desktop to share a screen with the same individual. At the moment, I can only share my screen on the device on which the call is made on.

  17. Integrate with macOS KeyChain

    Please P-L-E-A-S-E integrate macOS keychain into Teams. The frequent updates are both a blessing and curse. It takes me away from my work and well as shuts Teams down. Please integrate into keychain so you can update without my intervention. thnx

  19. Make Teams the default IM tool in Microsoft

    We're currently implementing Teams as the single IM platform in my company so I would really expect Microsoft to do the same, though I suspect otherwise.

    Using the latest version of the 64bit desktop app.

    There are so many bugs and things that could be improved that I really can’t be bothered reporting them all as these are obvious to anyone using it on a daily basis.

    Just tried to copy / paste an image from a chat to a new email in Outlook (fat client O365) and got myself a nice white rectangle instead!

    Could you give me a…

  20. Allow use of Teams links outside of Teams

    In an Outlook email to a colleague, I tried to link a post I posted on Teams that this colleague did not see, however the link would not work. We are not fully using Teams for internal emails in our company yet and that will change at some point, therefore it would be useful if it was possible to reference a Teams' post outside of Teams which could then prompt the receiver of the link to click on it and log onto Teams to see it. Bad habits are hard to change...
