  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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,…

          • Ability to integrate with on-premise Jira instance

            The ability to integrate an on-premise instance of Jira (that is externally accessible) would be highly advantageous for organisations not yet read to move this workload to Jira Cloud

            • 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.

              • GitHub Enterprise Connection - GitHub profile pics are broken.

                I use the GitHub Enterprise Connector, and it's pulling in things just fine. But profile pictures are broken. See the attached screenshot.

                    • 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.

                      • Acrobat

                        Need a better ability to open PDF files directly in adobe acrobat to edit, zoom, and pan effectively, or better PDF markup tools internal to Teams. The current viewing, scrolling, zooming, and editing tools are too limited, particularly when it comes to commenting or editing PDF versions of figures or drawings.

                        • Add Teams to Outlook Web Access

                          Right now the only chat platform in OWA is Skype for Business. It would be nice if there was an option to use Teams for the chat sidebar instead.

                          • Application "hides" the Ctrl+Shift+F12 keyboard shortcut (View.NextError in Visual Studio)

                            When the Microsoft Teams application is running, the Ctrl+Shift+F12 keyboard shortcut in Visual Studio (View.NextError) does not work.

                            When I close Teams, the shortcut starts working in VS.

                              • 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…

                                  When reading an email in Outlook, we have the options to "Reply", "Reply All", "Forward" etc. It would be nice to also have an option to discuss in Teams instead of having to forward to the email associated with the team. This will help get users out of the habit of clicking "Reply" and discussing directly through email.

                                    • 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.

                                      • we need Link(s) to message(s).

                                        Sometimes you need to inform someone else of the message. Regardless where it is posted.

                                        To avoid the need to copy and paste message to someone, maybe privately, would be very handy to be able to just get the link to the message and user could see that particular message after opening it.

                                        Same way like Facebook link in phone opens the Facebook app and shows the same content.

                                        • integrate with Last Pass

                                          I use Last Pass for password management. I don't have the option to save my Teams login information when I log into Teams
