  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. scriptable status

    I would like to have status be scriptable from outside of Teams. Bare minimum would be command line, better yet, would be to support IFTTT.

    One use case is to always default to appear away when logging in over the weekend.

  4. Enable the Web site of OneDrive to be shown in browsers

    When you add a OneDrive link to the Web site tab, the site is shown in Desktop client, but not in browsers. So, I would like you to enable the Web site to be shown in browsers.

  5. 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. 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.

  7. 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?

  8. 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!!!

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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…

  16. Get rid of Office365 groups, integrate them with AD groups

    I’d like to be able to manage rights bit assigning roles or permissions in applications. Office365 groups are invisible in e.g. SharePoint

  17. 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.

  18. Get a better feedback tool.

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

  19. 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).

  20. 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.
