  2. Integration for Workfront

    It would be very nice to integrate with the workfront project/task management solution so that we can manage our tasks from within the teams desktop app.

  3. Open files in local app by default

    It would be nice if there was an option to permit opening files in the local app, instead of rendering into a web viewer automatically.

  4. 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…

  5. Connectors stop working when the creator leaves the team

    We have found when a user leaves a Team or is removed from a Team all of the connectors for that user stop functioning. They remain, which is critical, so another user can read and replace the defunct connector.

    Would be great if they continued to function or if there was a way to transfer to another user or have another user assume control.

    This is a known issue — will update you when I have more info.

  6. Device call controls need to work with both Teams and Skype, priority should be selectable

    Device call controls need to work with both Teams and Skype, priority should be selectable. Currently, if both the Skype client and the Teams client is active on the desktop, the Skype client gets control of 3rd party devices like Jabra headsets. Users should be able to select which program gets control of the calling device.

    Currently, I need to close Skype before I start a Teams call in order for Teams to interoperate with the headset properly and allow device buttons (like mute) to work. If Skype is up, it maintains control.

    Please address.

  7. Full integration of external Sharepoint

    Before I created my Teamplace I already had a SharePoint.
    I integrated my SharePoint in Teams in such a way, that it is available in Teams Desktop App on the top "Files".

    But when I open MS Planner Board, open a card and want to add an attachment, I can only choose the in Teams integrated SharePoint. But I would like to use / access my connected (external) SharePoint.

    Expected behaviour:
    By adding an external SharePoint Site, I want it to behave like the integrated internal SharePoint site (which comes with MS Teams).

  8. copy a picture that is already posted in a chat

    If someone posted a picture/screenshot in the chat the only way I can copy that picture is to download it and then re post it. In Slack I was just able to right click on the picture copy and then pasted on another chat. In teams when I right click on the picture nothing happens. Is this feature possible in Teams?

    Thank you

  12. Live editing of tabbed documents

    This would apply to all things. I find it cumbersome that I need to open a new tab to edit the document that is right in front of me. Would love to be able to edit right there in that tab and see others doing the same. Collaboration levels would increase.

  14. custom url h

    Can you please enable support for custom URL protocols ?

    We have applications registered as URL protocol handlers that utilise custom URL's sent from those applications for easy navigation

    so for eg when a user receives the URL

    starflow://localhost/event=showDocument&documentId=2231381
    ...and clicks on it, the action is handled by the registered URL protocol handler app

    These custom URL's are already supported in Outlook, Word, Excel, PPT and One Note....as well as many other Windows/Mac applications...so why not TEAMS ?

    Thanks

  16. When calls to skype (consumer) can be made, we need to be able to share screens

    I use skype for business so will move over to Teams once it can communicate with skype (consumer) as many of my clients still use skype (consumer).
    However I often need to share screens so the ability to share screens between Teams / skype for business and skype (consumer) is essential.

  17. outlook integration

    Currently, in outlook, you cannot interchangeably view discussions. if i create a discussion in outlook, it does not start in teams nor vice versa. that would be a great asset for our organization. at the same time, archival of those conversations are key when old conversations need to be archived for past projects.

  20. Working links on website tabs

    I added a website under a tab, but the links within it do not work. In a browser they work fine. Can you add enabling links?
