  1. Search for Jira Issue number

    When a new Jira Issue is posted to a channel, the title of the Issue is searchable, but not the content. I would at least like to be able to search for the Jira Issue number.

  2. Integrate with Microsoft AutoUpdate on Mac

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

  3. outlook email link spam

    When sending an email thread to a channel email address (obtained by clicking "..." by the channel name), only the top email on the thread should be posted to MS Team channel, since it already contains the link to the email thread back in Outlook.

    By currently expanding all emails on that email thread on the posting add too much clutter to MS Teams.

  4. Global Admins add themselves to teams

    I'd like to have the ability to add myself to teams as a method of ensuring adherance to company policy.

    Right now, I am one of 3 global admins and we've had the problem before when using Slack of people making channels and productivity disappearing. We'd like to be able to monitor these teams when necessary, and requested by our Security Officer.

    I've attempted adding myself as a member, and owner, of the associated Office 365 Group but I am unable to get the Team to appear in my Team Client

  5. Add a "Teams" icon into Outlook address book

    When a new Team is created, a new email address is automaticaly created on Exchange.
    Unfortunately there is no icon to identify this new Team into the Outlook user address book. (The "icon" filed is simply left blank.)

    It would be nice to add a "Teams" icon into Outlook.

  6. 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. Outlook Integration - Send to Teams (similar to Send to OneNote capabilities)

    Ability to right click Outlook message or Meeting and send to Teams, allowing user to pick channel to send to.

    This would allow easy "escalation" from email to Teams, get this stuff out of my Inbox! :-)

  9. 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…

  10. Power BI interoperability - Ability to refresh the reports published

    It would be great to be able to refresh the power BI reports. Also the when trying to reload the updated report, it tends to update from cache and not the latest published version of the report

  11. Describe most common use cases, and best practices

    I see that some people are already deep into MS Teams. However before we jump into MS Teams, we want to see some use cases and how to use Sharepoint, MS Office user groups, Skype for Business, and MS Teams in those use cases.
    For instance a use case could be as follows:
    The food processing plant wants to add 3 mixers. The plant manager needs to talk first with the CFO about its cost break even analysis and ROI, with purchasing about possible vendors and mixer costs, with plant people about installation, training and usage, and with the warehouse…

  13. open notification system api

    "Let's kill email!" except all your notifications from webapps, fire off an email and while you're there actioning that you might as well email someone about what you've just been notified of... and other similar cases

    Teams needs a simple, open API for notifications that can replace email, when developing an App you just point any notification to appear in Teams instead.

    This then shifts people out of email and into to teams fully.

    Would need some rules and categorisation like email, but this would help embed Teams as where people start their work and not Outlook.

    I'd also envisage…

  14. 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.

  15. Enable a right-click menu for the main chat box

    Right now, if I have something like a link from Edge on my clipboard that I want to paste into the chat box and send, I can't use my mouse to do that because right-clicking in that box does an automatic search using whatever text is highlighted. This is kind of useless. Most of the time, when I highlight something, I want to copy/cut and paste it. Just enable normal right-click menus for text editing!

  16. View Date/Time on past chats

    When viewing past chats, you see "yesterday" or the date like 11/11 but you do not see the time of the conversation. If you need to review the times for anything you are currently unable to see these. Can this be added?

  17. Creating an email from the user info card uses primary email address instead of UPN

    It looks like creating an email by clicking on the envelope icon of the user info card in the Teams client uses the user's UPN as the To: attribute of the email.
    In our organisation UPN != email address. This functionality should use the user's primary email address to target the email, not the UPN.

  18. 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.

  20. Better support for hi-dpi and docking

    I have a Surface Book that gets docked and undocked regularly. The external monitor is not a high-res display, and consequently, the size and layout of the desktop app gets pretty weird after docking. Essentially, the app can't be used unless the window is made super wide.
