  1. Enable Teams for both Skype for Business Online and on-premises users in Hybrid environments

    I know you are trying to drive more companies to Office 365 and that is ok for many things. Teams being exclusively for users enabled and homed in Skype for Business Online is really unfair. There are hundreds of thousands of companies out there with Lync and Skype for Business on-premises and a good percentage of those that have enabled hybrid for one or more reasons. From single sign on, integration with Exchange Online for voicemail and even for adding Meeting Broadcast capability. If you want Teams to be used by the masses you need to give it to the…

  2. Share in Teams from Office 365

    Provide the capability across Office 365 (SharePoint, OneDrive, Delve, Sway, Stream...) to share a piece of content in Teams. This would share a link to the piece of content, not upload a copy.

  4. Convert Email in Outlook To Teams Discussion

    I get lots of emails. Emails that are directed to 10-20-30 people. It would be nice if Teams would integrate in Outlook so that email can be converted into Teams Discussion. Just like you have IM sign next to Reply, Reply All, Forward there should be Teams. Right now it's endless discussion in email which is counterproductive.

  5. Delve search integration in Teams

    Add search integration between Teams and Delve so that you can search in Teams to identify people in the enterprise with a particular expertise/experience who you can then start up a chat with in teams or add to a team.

  6. Link files to SharePoint Online instead of OneDrive

    The default seems to be to OneDrive rather than SharePoint Online Doc Libraries which seems backwards since SharePoint is for Collaboration and OneDrive is more private files

  7. Display the date and time of whena message was sent

    I'd like to see the time next to the message if it was sent today. And I would like the date and time for any older messages.

  8. I want the ability to send or receive SMS texts within Teams.

    I want the ability to send or receive SMS texts within Teams. This was not possible with Skype for Business but is possible through regular Skype. The addition of this feature would convince more companies and government organizations to fully adopt Teams--especially Operations Centers needing the ability to quickly contact personnel.

  9. Google Calendar

    I rely on Google Calendar for all of my day-to-day events so right now, I’m having to manually put in my shifts that I’m assigned on Teams. Would be nice to have it sync with my Calendar and maybe even show my supervisor when a shift conflicts with an event on my calendar, similar to Outlook when scheduling a meeting. I’m sure others would benefit from this too? Thanks!

  10. Reply/Share by Teams

    Allow for people to share information by Teams. When I on web browsing and want to share an article, the site should have an option to share by Teams just like they do share by email, twitter, Linkin, Facebook, etc.

    Also, add ability in iOS to share information with, or open documents in, Teams. (Ideally, this would be available on all platforms, but iOS first please.)

    Finally, allow people to reply to emails by Teams. Currently, in Outlook, you can reply to an email by SFB message; you should also be able to reply by Teams message.

    I know these…

  11. New Excel Co-Authoring does not work with Excel Docs in Teams

    New Excel desktop Co-Authoring does not work with Excel Docs in Teams. We've tried going directly to the group, sharepoint and inside teams and every time it tells you the file is locked. A regular O365 group and OneDrive work fine but take that same file and put it in teams and no more co-authoring.

  13. Display full filename for sharepoint library

    when you connect sharepoint library in teams, the column width is fixed, teams cannot display full file name, you can display full name in web page version when you put mouse arrow on the filename.

  14. Merge Outlook Groups, Skype for Business and Yammer chats and Teams in one unique experience with one unique app and presence status

    It is a little bit confuse to us look for a conversation we had in more than one place. It happens a lot because some conversations (generally started by e-mail) are in Outlook Group, while others are in a Teams channel or in a Skype for Business or Yammer chat.
    I think that Teams, Skype for Business and Outlook needs to be merged in one UNIQUE rich experience. All we wish the most is to have a SINGLE PLACE TO SEARCH, share and talk.
    The presence status needs to be one for all Microsoft Office enviroment.

  15. Make Teams documents visible to Delve

    A major barrier to adoption of Teams across our business is the difficulty in finding files - you need to find the right team and then access the files that way, assuming that the file you are looking for isn't in OneDrive, or a SharePoint Online site, etc.

    Ideally, the files inside Teams libraries should also be exposed to Office Graph, so that Files can be found via Delve, allowing for a single point of search for all documents.

  16. Allow Skype For Business to join Teams meetings

    Allow users which have Skype installed to join a Teams meeting. Hosting a team meeting would require all users to have Teams. Also external users. This won't help to transition to Teams as always some dont have Teams. Would be good to have a real transition where users with Skype can join a Teams meeting.

  17. Add Links Tab to Conversation View

    Options are currently:

    Conversation - shows chat
    Files - shows attachments sent in chat
    Notes - shows notes
    + - shows additional apps

    "Links" should be another tab which shows all URL's posted in the conversation. Common feature in other solutions.

  18. chat history between skype and teams

    Trying out MS Teams while most of the organization is still using Skype for chat. Open a chat in teams with someone still using Skype I can chat fine. My problem is the chat history within teams is lost, can't effectively resume a conversation.

    ​The chat history does go to my outlook conversation history but that's not an easy way to resume chats with someone.

    If a user chats with another Teams user the chat history is saved fine within Teams and even cross platform to my mobile. Wondering if anyone knows how to store chat history in Teams when…

  20. Team as distribution list

    The group I created automatically generated a contact in the company directory. If this acted as a distribution list, it would be fine. However, it has potential to duplicate existing distribution lists. Beyond that, if you accidentally email the contact, it goes into the "Groups" folder, which for our team which has only barely begun using MSTeams, basically sends it into a void. It does not appear in the inbox or as a skype notification or even in MSTeams itself!! If at least it showed up in MSTeams as a post, it would make some sense. As it is, it's…
