  2. "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…

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  6. Powerbi

    The integration with Power BI is a little clunky.
    Adding an embedded PBI Report to a team does not get the members of that team permissions to view the content.
    Instead, even without Pro licences and when using premium capacities, users need to be manually added to the corresponding report workspace.

    Could there be a way of assuming view only membership for anyone that is a member of the relevant team instead?

  7. 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.

  8. 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 opening you…

  9. Start workflows on individual messages

    Looking for the ability to start a workflow based on an individual message in any channel and in any team.
    For example, a trigger like "When I bookmark a message". This in turn would allow to do anything with the message via Flow, for example, create a To-Do item.

  10. 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 collaborate.


    3. General…

  11. 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…

  12. Sería ideal saber si el destinatario leyó el mensaje enviado

    Sugiero que se pueda ver cuando un usuario leyó el mensaje enviado por el chat.

  14. 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...

  16. Support chat retention for on-premise Mailboxes

    Currently Microsoft teams does not save a conversation history of the users mailboxes are stored on an on-premise exchange mailbox. This is currently the only thing which would prevent my organization from moving to Teams instead of SfB.

    This only applies for user to user conversation. Converstation within the team channels is stored in the group mailbox on Exchange online as expected.

  18. Can't work on 2 different channels at the same time.

    While working with planner (for instance), if a user, not related to the channel those plans belongs to, sends me a chat, notification, mention, I can't respond and continue with what I was doing before. I have to close the planner channel (for instance) and then open it again and look for what I was doing before.

  19. Teams Store for organization-level apps

    Please create organization-level App Store.

    The ability to upload custom app into organization-level App Store would be very useful.

    This would allow IT to create an App which has a Tab pre-configured with a URL, pointing to our custom web-based application.

    Web Site app is too general for this task in companies with 100s of internal systems and people having problem remembering or figuring out their URLs.

  20. 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.
