  1. Make public channel private

    It would be nice to convert some of our already established channels to private now the feature is available in the same way it may be desired to de-classify a private channel to public at some point too.

    Currently a channel privacy can only be set during creation.

  2. Create Planner tabs within Private Channels

    We have just started using Private Channels, which is great as our team has sub teams within it and this way we can have private discussions, without creating multiple teams.

    What we'd also like to do is create Planner Plans within the Private Channels that are only accessible to those within the Private Channel. Is this on the roadmap?

  3. Allow to use @team and @channel on multi-byte (Japanese language) environment.

    Allow to use @team and @channel on multi-byte (Japanese language) teams environment.

    They don't work anymore and we have to use @チーム and @チャネル. The flow to put them in is "@" > "switch input mode to multi-byte" > "ti-mu" > "convert into Katakana" > "Enter".

    They are inconvenient and @team and @channel are simple and better to us.

  4. Reposition the control bar

    allow the user to change the position of the control bar. It is positioned right where screen sharing occurs and you can't see the entire screen share

  5. Merge Calls

    The ability to "Merge calls" was available in Skype for Business. The ability to call one person, put them on hold then call a second person, and then merge the calls together just like it was on Skype for Business.
    Why was this ability removed?

  6. Users added to team line removed

    In each general channel a new line gets created for all new users added to a team. Can this line be removed?
    As an example I setup a team and get some posts ready for welcome messages and introductions, then when I add groups of people, after a few lines all my messages have pushed up and off the screen.
    We have one specific team for all in the business and all the threads are getting lost as we add each department/individuals one by one.

  8. Limit private channel site options and provide navigation from main group site

    Private channels are now available, cool! However, we see some challenges in the fact that these are created as separate site collections in SharePoint.

    If you navigate to the private channel site collection (url example: /sites/TeamSite1-Privatechannel1/) you are automatically redirected to the documents library for this channel. However, in this site you can create custom libraries, lists and even sub sites which from a governance point of view creates some headaches...

    Also, there is no navigation from the main group site to the private channel sites and back.

    And finally, there are no branding options / site design options for…

  11. Private channel access by non Team member

    The new private channel functionality doesn’t solve the basic private channels need. We have tons of needs for private channels where we want to invite someone to a channel but not give them access to the rest of the team. One example: BD proposal where you need a non-BD team member to be involved. They can’t have access to other BD files, just this one channel for this one proposal. Since they can’t have access to other BD files they aren’t part of the team, but if they aren’t part of the team they can’t get access to the channel.…

  12. cross channel posts: Edit after posting

    The new cross-channel posts are great functions!
    However, it would be even better if we could edit the thread after posting.
    Now, we can delete the threads of cross channel posts, but cannot edit it.

  13. Add hold music in consultative transfer of PSTN calls

    When putting a PSTN call on hold in Teams the caller will hear music. But when you do a consultative transfer the caller gets total silence before he gets transferred. Please also add music here.

  14. Ability for more than 1 person to share their screens in a group meeting

    Ability for more than 1 person to share their screens in a group meeting. These could be side by side and probably on click one of them goes bigger.

  15. Cross Channel Posts: Replies Appear in All Threads

    The new cross-channel posts are great! However, it would be even better if replies in one thread copied over to the thread in the other channel(s). This way, the conversation remains fluid and everyone always has the same information.

  16. New Conversation should not always be visible

    Conversations in Teams is difficult to manage. Everyone expects them to work like Instant Messaging. Like Chats.

    So you end up with conversations happening all over the place.

    To rectify this, I have tried to create template conversations so that when you go into one, you've already seen the correct formatting.

    Yet, without a doubt, someone replies to the Running Thread by creating a new conversation instead of replying to the already existing one.

    You need the "new conversation" field to NOT be visible. It should just be a plus button on the right hand side, and the REPLY should…

  17. Allow me to share multiple applications without sharing my entire screen.

    We often share during calls, but sharing the entire screen is not helping when reminders come in that distract from the shared screen and discussion. It would be great to have a feature similar to WebEx allowing the selection of multiple apps that are ok to share (e.g. all xls and all ppt, but not other apps).

  18. Extract chat logs for group chat

    "Content Search" cannot search logs of group chat only.
    It would be useful if there was a function to search logs for group chat only.

  19. Ability to add the Flow app to a private channel

    Currently, you can't add the Flow app to a private channel. Because of this, you can't also do other things that require it, like send a message or an adaptive card from Power Automate to a private channel.

  20. Inactive Team Policy

    Currently, Teams automatically hides Teams which have not been used in more than 45 days (https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&featureid=48621). Be able to create a policy in the TAC or in the client that can both set the number of days to hide inactive Teams (I.e. 7 - 100) and also be able to disable this altogether so inactive Teams are never moved to hidden Teams.

    Requested in TC article here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Automatic-hiding-of-Microsoft-Teams-in-more-than-45-days/m-p/767541#M35285
