  1. Just play nice with other MS products

    For me is amazing how a product developed by Microsoft itself doesn't play nice with basic other product like Office. Shared images can't be copied and paste in PPT. This is just sad.
    Also, it is very sad that every time Teams lost focus and I active the window again, I have to click in the text area to type again in the chat I just left. How you develop this? How your QA team doesn't detect such a basic misbehavior?

  3. Import / Export for data migration between tenants

    At my IT company we are frequently working on Office 365 migration projects. We're also working on some merger / carve-out projects so we frquently need to move data out of tenant no 1 and re-import that data to tenant no #2.
    Currently this cannot be done by the existing graph api, as there is no support to access several data like chat conversation etc.
    Unfortunately, a support request answered that it's also not possible to get that from the support right now.

    I'd like to request some export-team and import-team functionality
    • Export should be possible to an Azure…

  5. Share files / message those not in your organization

    Either:
    1. Let users share files and message with Skype for business users who are not in their organization.
    or...
    2 Let users migrate back to Skype for Business.

    Teams is useless for me without 1. And it does not seem possible to delete and migrate back. Several of our company's processes are not working as we collaborate regularly with people who are not in our organization. We are currently looking for a replacement, since Teams has lost functionality that Skype for Business had.

  6. Ich muss meinen Bildschirm mit einem Business Skype Partner teilen können.

    Warum hat MS diese Funktion oder Verbindung mit Privat-Skype nicht vorgesehen/entwickelt? Dies ist eine Katastrophe und absolut geschäftsschädigend.

  8. Teams Only cannot initiate chat to Skype users on Islands mode

    When a user is in Teams Only mode, they cannot send a chat to a user who is on Skype. The only way a Skype user can chat with a Teams user is if the Skype user initiates the chat from their end to the Teams user.

  9. Federation with the Matrix Protocol

    I know there are already a lot of requests for federation. This is a different type of request though, as it is more specific:

    Similar to how true email federation uses open source federated protocols like IMAP, SMTP, POP3, true federated banquet style chat applications should also use open source federated protocols to allow other clients & hosts.

    The Matrix protocol (which is managed by a non-profit organization) is the most popular way to do this. I would love if Microsoft Teams added support for this to allow it to truly replace email, and communicate with customers, vendors, etc. that…

  10. Include Skype users (not just Skype4Business/Lync users) as external.

    I dont know if it is an option that we need to turn ON, but i do not seem to be able to add external users to a Team.
    I would expect to be able to add any of the following:
    * Email address (so messages can be emailed to a 'team').
    * Skype (standard skype, NOT S4B / Lync)
    * Skype 4 Business / Lync (apparently this is supported - but i just cant see it).

  11. Teams to be interoperable with standard video or work as S4B!

    There is a whole world out there that needs to communicate!
    To make Teams your new, and only, way to do video, NOT being able to connect to Standard based solutions, or for videoservices, no matter brand, coexist with your solutions, the way you made it possible with S4B. Without an open communication, your solution should be sent back to the 19th Century! It is simply wrong thinking! Sorry, but this is the truth!
    A very, very unhappy customer!!!

  12. A Function that enables the Box for specific teams or users only in Teams

    I would like to make Teams and Box collaborate.
    I would like you to allow administrators to enable the Box in cloud storage for specific teams or users only in Microsoft Teams.

  13. Incident information should be posted in the Service health when the incident occurs in Teams

    When Teams related incidents would occur, the information could sometimes not be shown in the affected tenants’ Service health.
    I would strongly request that the incidents’ information should be always posted for the affected tenants’ Service health 100% in future.

  14. Exportable reporting data

    Ability to export report data for external reporting and warehousing.
    I.e. extract data from and WebAPI that allow custom reporting by exposing data on a granular level?

    E.g. session details, conference, voice quality, screen sharing etc. much like what exist for Skype for Business today (on site).

  15. New coexistence options between SfB and MTeams enable use of Blynclight and/or Busylight?

    With new coexistence set up options between SfB & MTeams, does this mean Embrava Blynclight or Kuando Busylight can be used w Teams?

  16. We need to be able to have multiple teams on our devices.

    Need to be able to join multiple teams. As this platform grows there will be people who serve on several teams. Personally i serve on a public community association board that uses teams. As well so does my work account. I need the ability to easily flip between the two teams with different organizations on the same device.

  17. Powerbi

    The integration with Power BI is a little clunky.
    Adding an embedded PBI Report to a team does not get the members of that team permissions to view the content.
    Instead, even without Pro licences and when using premium capacities, users need to be manually added to the corresponding report workspace.

    Could there be a way of assuming view only membership for anyone that is a member of the relevant team instead?

  19. Improve Skype For Business interoperability

    At my company, we have Skype for Business (SFB) and Teams enabled. Teams allows you to message people exclusively using SFB, but you cannot send an SFB message to someone exclusively using Teams. To make matters worse, at my company many people (ie. managers) exclusively use SFB, and another set (ie. developers) use Teams. So there are effectively two options to communicate with everyone:

    1) Only use SFB, and both groups can message you.
    2) Keep BOTH SFB and Teams open. Use Teams to send new messages, and keep SFB open to respond to Managers that do not use Teams.

  20. hyperlinking to a chat user

    (NOTE - This is the second time I am posting this as the last time it was inappropriately merged into https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17137732-hyperlink-any-text-in-chat which has nothing to do with this request. It is a little frustrating that I can't even get to my original post in order to copy and paste - I need to recreate it from scratch.)

    It would be very helpful to have the ability to hyperlink INTO a chat with a given user. We relied on this heavily while using Skype and it is a very nice feature to be able to embed into other internal applications.

    E.g.…
