  1. Disable the yellow notification in Skype informing them that the other user is using Teams

    Need the ability to disable the yellow banner notification a Skype users receives in chat window when chatting with a Teams user.

    Currently they are told the other user is using Teams and they should do too, for a richer experience.

        • 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.

          • Offer option to open .csv files in Excel please:)

            For .csv files stored in the files tab, it would be nice to be able to "view" them using Excel in teams as well as open them in Excel from Teams.

            • Use alternative OneNote for EDUcation

              We can not add additional notebooks or point to a specific section yet in our EDU domain. Is this still on the roadmap?

              Thanks

                  • Better integration with TFS

                    A similar idea to this was already marked as completed. And perhaps it was back when that idea was created.

                    However, currently VSTS has a Kanban integration with Teams that TFS does not, and my team would desperately like to have this integration.

                    Although, my understanding is that the VSTS integration simply imports the VSTS Kanban into teams. What we would prefer is for the Teams Kanban (currently hosted by Microsoft Planner) to simply be able to create and sync with tasks in TFS.

                    The TFS Kanban feels extra and under featured now, and we would like one central place…

                    • Posting Yammer thread links in a Teams post should preview the Yammer thread

                      When Teams tries to preview a Yammer thread link currently, all we see is the default Yammer preview. Link previews for Yammer under this behaviour are near useless.
                      A better behaviour would be for the link preview to have the topic and first line of content from the Yammer thread.

                      Attached is an example to how this looks now when Teams creates a preview for a posted Yammer thread link.

                        • Outlook contact are shown as guest

                          Contacts added to outlook are shown as guests in the teams contact list.
                          Their status is unavailable and sending chat messages will never show up on their client Teams or SFB.
                          If I then search for their email, and wait about 5 seconds. I'll see an option to add as external.
                          External contact receive messages.

                          Why not just add them as external in the first place?

                          • How to use laptop, tablet and mobile at the same time

                            I'm using my Laptop (view) , Surface tablet (notes) and mobile (Audio). Video might be sent from any of the three. I would like to be able to make them coexist.
                            Teams should be able to be aware of all the devices that I'm using and I should be able to have an on an off switch in some control. It should be very easy to do I think´

                            • Can you make this harder to use?

                              I am sure if you gave it more thought, you could make this product more impossibly complex and needlessly opaque. What is the point of uploading a file if I cannot share it with my colleagues?

                                • Limit the number of votes :)

                                  The UserVoice seems to have unlimited votes per user (I'm not running out). Some other products gave a quota, which makes one think more and leads to more presentative vote counts.

                                  (Also, no category for improments on UserVoice forum itself.)

                                    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

                                      • 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.
