  1. Make Edit view the same in Teams as it is in Desktop App

    I almost never edit documents within Teams because the edit view does not show the same formatting as the Desktop app. It would be great if the view within Teams while editing a document was the same as it is when editing in the Desktop app so that you know what your final product will look like without having to open an additional window (the whole point of the interoperability of Teams).

  2. Integrate Teams with Synergy by Edupoint

    I am a Technology Coordinator in a rural school system. We employ Synergy by Edupoint as our Student Information System. A representative group of our teachers want TEAMS to be our official tool for online instruction and learning management. Google Classroom fully integrates with Synergy seamlessly accommodating student rosters, assignments and grades; TEAMS does not. Will TEAMS develop integration with Synergy by Edupoint for use in the 2020-2021 school year that begins July 27? I think it is called an API (in GoogleSpeak anyway).

  3. Re-thread button to thread accidental new messages

    Frequently, someone types in a new message thread, when they mean to Reply to an existing thread. Flowdock (a similar app) allows you to re-thread these new messages into the last thread you wrote in with a single click. This would be a fantastic feature.

  4. Connect to External Email App

    Allow me to send email thru external email app but keep records in Teams. Connect it to the Win 10 Mail interface that comes on Win 10.

    In the Win 10 Mail, add an 'Archive in Teams' option, so all my Team exchanges are archived even if not talking with a Team member. You could add an 'ad' at the bottom of the external email message inviting the recipient of the external email to join Teams for free, and increase market *********** exponentially!

  5. Allow Screen Mirroring for tablets

    While presenting it would be a neat feature to be able to use the tablet as an input device. Use it for a 2nd screen but with independent capabilities. Present via screen mirroring but still curate via the desktop app.
    White board possibilities, because it is much more easier to draw on the tablet with the appropriate stylus.

  7. Avoiding so much crashes




      • Allowing it to run well on low internet speed. It crashes 30 times approx on 2 hours, that doesn't happen on other platforms.

  8. Enhanced desktop support mode for screen share

    It would be advantageous to add an enhanced admin privileged mode so a remote technician could assist a user through screen share. Currently you are not allowed to pass through credentials or interact with applications that run with elevated privileges.

  9. BLF key status monitoring for non-teams devices

    If you use Teams for Direct Routing (call2teams.com for example) you may have other users or devices on your PBX that you would wish to monitor.
    Can the status of other devices or non teams users be surfaced in Teams.
    This would be particularly useful if Teams is the only endpoint device available.

  11. Align features between Browser use, App in Windows, on Android and on iOS

    On the browser, you can switch if you are part of different Teams (eg. your company and partner company). In the Windows app, Android, iOS app you cannot. On the browser, you cannot switch back.
    In the Windows app, you can pin chats. In the iOS app and on Android, you cannot.

  12. Microsoft should borrow from far more superior Zoom technology and rewrite most of the code. Teams need simple features such as login.

    Microsoft should borrow from far superior Zoom technology and rewrite most of the code. Teams need simple features such as login, changing options from chatting to video, louder sound, etc. Teams is very basic app. and it damages its credibility with business customers. Most users use it due to internal mandatory push within companies but once we have choice we rarely use Microsoft products, since they are still in the 1980s from usability standpoint. Company should hire more professionals to develop new products and should focus more on usability of its technology and catching up with industry leaders.

  14. Synchronize Public Contact Folders to Team Membership Lists

    Enable the ability to easily synchronize public contact folders to Team Membership Lists, with changes to public contact folders impacting the Team Membership List simultaneously and/or vice versa. We have many public contact folders set up currently and the ability to convert them into team membership lists (and even set up tags for the sub-lists) would be incredibly efficient.

  16. Provide filter for unread chats

    When we are away from system and come back with list of chats, out of which we reply some immediately so keep for later. Getting filter on unread chat will make life easier. We don't have to scroll down all the way to get the unread chats one by one.

  18. When creating a new team, enable selection of the SharePoint Site and Doclib to use for files

    When a new Team is created either from the Teams home page or from the "Add a Team" popup widget on a parent SharePoint Site, it would be very helpful if the creation workflow allowed a user to select the SharePoint Site and Document Library to be used for the Team Files. If would be even more useful if this was part of the Team settings, so it could be changed if required during the life of the Team.

    I have just had a case where I used the SharePoint "Add a Team" widget to try and add a new…

  19. Refresh contact information from corporate address book with button

    Refresh contact information from address book with button or at startup. In a large organisation contact information like display names get updated regularly but those do not get properly reflected to teams (like recent chat list). With a button or forced update at startup, this kind of problem would go away.
