  1. Having Skype, Team and Outlook open for communications is at best exhausting.

    Would be nice to thing a way to integrate all of this togehter. Outlook is so has been, I doesn't help me to organise my work and my communications with all that corporate spam around.

  2. Post from Flow as Creator

    I have a flow created that when a new Sharepoint item is added to a list it posts to a Team channel conversation however it posts from the flow owner. I would like to option in Flow to change the originating poster in teams to be the person who creates the Sharepoint item.

  3. Git Enterprise connector needs to allow filter messages/cards for select branches

    Currently the Git Enterprise connector shows actions for any branches. It would be beneficial to be able to filter which branches the connector displays in a channel instead of showing every branches actions.

    My team creates individual branches off of develop when working a ticket, so anytime they commit to their individual branch it's showing up in a channel. When in reality I want the channel to only see commits that are done on develop and master.

  4. activate teams over yammer provisioned office 365 group

    Why not have the possibility to activate Teams on a yammer provisioned Office 365 group?

    Then you'd have an "out of the box" inner-/outerloop functionality.

  5. You need to make Teams load SharePoint Groups.

    Duplicating the concept of Teams and Groups will be met with apathy if I propose the my (actual) team adopts this. Integration and interoperability between SharePoint, Outlook and Teams needs to be seamless. Teams then becomes the "home/hub/portal" for Microsoft Office.

  6. Improve Google Drive integration

    The current Google Drive integration in Files tab only allows pick folders from My Drive. It is better to allow sharing file/folders from Shared With Me as well.

  9. Allow filtering VSTS trigger by work item tags

    Currently you cannot use the built in teams connector to filter by tag for VSTS work items.

    Feel like this is a important function that's missing from the current functionality - requiring us to use manual webhooks (see attachment)

  10. When teams logs out it should give a different message

    When you get logged out in the mac client it says:

    "You signed out of your account
    It's a good idea to close all browser windows."


    1. I did not sign out it autosigned out on it's own. The wording implies some action I did signed me out rather than an auto timeout.

    2. I am using the mac client not a browser. Perhaps behind the scenes it is just a browser, but this terminology is confusing.

    3. It saying "it is a good idea to close all browser windows" implies both that I need to close browser windows (not true with the…

  11. Allow playing videos in Teams thread when accessing a meeting video link of Stream

    If you paste a meeting video link of Stream on a Teams thread and access the link, the Stream app opens in a new browser to play video.
    But we would like you to implement a feature that directly plays videos in Teams thread without opening browser.

  12. Meeting room status update between devices like MTR and meeting room device

    Summary:
    We would like to see functionality where, when a person starts a meeting using an MTR (Microsoft Teams Rooms), the meeting room screen (the device just outside the meeting room) is updated to reflect the status change. In other words, when a person walks into a meeting room, starts a meeting using the meeting room MTR, the status on the meeting room screen is updated to show the meeting is started. Also, when the meeting ends earlier, the status of the meeting room device is updated to reflect the same.

    User Story:
    1. Organizer#1 schedules a meeting
    2. On…

  13. Delete GIF files from history

    Delete GIF files from history would make this program easier to use. If you use a lot of GIFs. The program gets bogge down with old files. In the space where it says files, if there was an option to delete those old files that would be helpful

  15. Amazon Alexa and google home integration

    Working from home a lot, as many people are during the Covid-19 outbreak, I have an amazon echo in all the rooms of my house. I’d love to get a reminder to join a conference call for work and then actually join it on my echo device (audio only would be fine- unless you want to add Alexa video devices too !!!)

  16. Team Improvements

    You guys are doing a wonderful job with Teams, it is unlike all other conferencing platforms as it is a virtual space. However, I can see competitor’s platforms have features such as:


    1. Raise hands

    2. All participants camera preview on screen

    3. Interactive live White Board

    4. Interactive live polls

    Hope this helps with your future improvements to Teams and to keep up to speed with these other conferencing services, which I note are focused on one off meetings rather than daily virtual workspaces.

  17. Set user's coexistence mode per global policies (not api, not org-wide setting)

    In order to manage and organize a Skype to Teams transition in big enterprises, it may be required to assign a specific coexistence modes to different groups of users.
    For example: Teams-only for one group and Skype for Business only for the other group.

    Problem 1
    Org-wide setting includes guest accounts as well. Assuming that the Skype group is the bigger group at the beginning of a transition, you can not apply a SfB only org-wide setting because it will hit also guest accounts (which leads to no chat).

    Problem 2
    Setting single user's coexistence mode with api is not…

  18. Ability to choose which Channel to share to in Yammer tab when using "Share to Channel"

    Currently when Yammer is connected as a tab in a Channel, some functionality is removed from the yammer page, such as "Copy link to clipboard" and this is replaced with "Share to Channel".

    It would be great if you could then choose which channel you would like to share to.

    My Team has a yammer page available to the whole company and we are responsible for dozens of different services. We have a Team channel dedicated for each service. We have the Yammer tab on the General channel. Instead of having to add yammer as a tab to each channel,…

  19. Allow Excel Sheet Attribute Linking across multiple files in Teams.

    I need to be able to use standard Excel attribute linking between multiple Team hosted Excel sheets. I get an error saying this feature is not supported. This drastically helps with documentation and analysis documents. If I have say a definitions excel sheet I can just simply link the definitions every time in new sheets so I only have to update values in one location.
