  1. Integrate with Microsoft AutoUpdate on Mac

    It would make managing the app easier for those of us who use a MAU caching/manifest server.

    • Reply with IM in Outlook

      Replace Skype in the Reply with IM feature in Outlook.

      Currently, Skype for Business users can "Reply with IM" or "Replay All with IM" to an email in Outlook. This opens the SFB client with a message to the email sender, or a group message to all recipients on the email.

      I am proposing the ability to either replace SFB with Teams, or add Teams as an option to the existing functionality.

      Ideally, once this ability exists, the key value is to easily move a conversation from an email to either a channel, a group chat, or an individual chat,…

      • 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…

        • 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.

          • Need PHONE SYSTEM licenses from Office 365 Business licenses (not just Enterprise)!

            Currently MS Teams can only add phone functionality at the Enterprise level. O365 prevents users at the Office 365 Business Premium from accessing phone services. Changing from Business Premium to E3 is an extra $7.50/mo plus phone access at $8/mo plus the actual domestic subscription! A personal Skype Pro number only costs $6.50 per month!

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Save Skype4Bus Conversations

                  If you leave the application open it keeps the conversations you have and with individuals. If you close the application you lose these and the flow of the conversation. Save conversations so they don't disappear (or pull them from save conversations folder int he mailbox)

                  • 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.

                                  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…

                                      • 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).

                                        • Ability to use notes:// as protocol in Links

                                          Ability to use notes:// as protocol in Links to open a IBM Notes Application / View / Document in a O365 / IBM Notes Domino coexistence environment.
                                          Now it is only possible to use http:// or https:// as protocol in a link. The IBM Notes client registers the notes:// protocol in Windows, so it is possible to open IBM Notes Applications / Views / Documents from other applications with an URL like "notes://SERVER/db.nsf/view/DocUNID". URLs in this form are already opening the linked resource in the IBM Notes client from Microsoft applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote.
