  1. Incorporate Forms into Outlook

    Forms has a lot of great options that could be integrated into Outlook emails, specifically being able to do more than a yes/no radio button.

  2. Ability to share post from private Team conversation to Yammer

    Request from a staff member that seems achievable given the existing Share button in Yammer could presumably be built into Teams in the same manner with cross referencing possible:

    "I post heaps of notes and updates to existing P&C sub-channels on our projects (ABC project, DEF project, GHI project) - but other teams can't see this. LP and FCs on occasion want to be able to access this info to see where the campaign is up to, but aren't members of the Team or conversation.

    What are the options?

    1. Add everyone to our Team channels - is that appropriate? …

  3. Share Teams files/folder with External contacts, without requiring a login

    Currently when you add a file within a Team there's no way to share that file with an external contact.
    I would like a way share a file from within teams with external contacts. I would also like them to be able to edit selected files as well as upload new files and have them show up in the channel's Sharepoint Directory.

  4. Hyperlinks and Searchable PDFs

    When you open a pdf, hyperlinks within the pdf don't work. Additionally, you can't search within the PDF (No Ctrl-F either). PDFs that are a few hundred pages long is far too long to scroll through to find a section that can be found in seconds using a desktop PDF application.

    needs your feedback  ·  Suphatra responded

    Hi everyone, I wanted to check in on this ask because it’s died down since GA, and also because the ask is not totally clear to me.

    Right now, we provide a way during the team creation process for you to select an existing Office 365 group. Are you asking to be able to do this same thing, but outside of Teams?

    Do let me know!

    Sincerely,
    Suphatra

  7. Send an instant message with Teams by clicking on an Office contact card IM icon

    From an Office contact card, it should be possible to click on the Instant Messaging icon to inititate instant messaging thru Teams.
    Same with calls and videos.

  8. email team directly

    It would be good if we could create an email to the entire Team, directly from the root team's context menu.

    rather than having to go back to Outlook, find the group definition an create an email from there.

  9. 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.

  11. Easy Video and document sharing

    1) Be able to share videos
    2) allow sharing to teams from iOS devices (When I want to send a document or something, I should be able to attach it. Basically use some of the basic features included in WhatsApp and Slack.

  12. 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.

  13. ServiceNow integration to facilitate ChatOps

    Integration with ServiceNow for chatops for things like incident management (just keeping up with slack). Old way was ticket comes in the emails and IM's are exchanged. With Teams integration, the helpdesk ticket could come in and automatically posts the new ticket into a support channel in Teams. Support person acknowledges the ticket in our support system, which again posts on Teams that the ticket has been acknowledged by the person in Support. Everyone in the support team knows that a ticket has come in, that it is being handled, others are able to chime in if help if needed,…

  15. Copy link to task does not work in the desktop app.

    The link I copy within the Teams desktop app does not work to link back to that Task later. If I copy the link from the Task in the web app, it will open that Task in the web app, but still fails in the desktop app.

  16. 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…

  18. Error received when running two sessions of teams

    I just tried to log into my edu domain Team site while I was logged into your domain (within two different browser windows open side by side), and having two different connections within both widows created an error that would not allow me to log into both windows at the same time. I should be able to run multiple sessions to different domains at the same time so that I can work collaboratively with different teams at the same time.

  19. 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.

  20. Fully compatible with Skype for business and Skype. Running three applications doesn't make sense

    I have Skype running for people outside my organisation. Skype for Business for people inside my organisation. And now Teams for those early adopters that are starting to migrate. As you can see this doesn't make any sense, does it? Please consolidate all platforms on a single one.
