  1. Sort Conversations by thread creation, not thread replies

    I don't like the fact that if someone replies to a thread in a channel, it becomes the newest message added. Channels should be sorted by message/thread creation first, not replies to a thread.

  2. Document Updated Alerts in Teams

    Allow users to "tag" specific documents in Teams for notifications when documents are updated.

  4. Migration - Teams to Teams

    As more customers use Teams and companies from time to time acquire other organisations that use Teams, it is important that Microsoft support these migrations either via a tool or offer support with the integration of 2 Teams.

  5. Microsoft Teams can replace Outlook

    Microsoft Teams can replace Outlook with the right features. It may not work for personal emails, but it definitely can be done within organizations. I think it will make it very slick and improve productivity multifold. I do have some ideas and would love to share them.

    E.g. Every chat message can have individual properties and characteristics that would allow for it to be saved, forwarded, archived. Every message would have the ability to be labeled, flagged, etc.

  6. Make "Open in Sharepoint" link in each team customizable.

    Currently, clicking "Open in Sharepoint" from the 3-dot menu in a Team Channel opens a folder in the Sharepoint document library for that team site that is named the same as the channel, containing all photos and files previously shared in that channel's chat. Instead, we'd like it to open to the team's home page by default. Ability to customize this would be great!

  7. Sound notification

    I need Teams notifications to be consistent across all platforms, Mobile, PC, Web.
    I need notifications to be configurable for specific users or teams. I want to be able to set loud notifications for some users or Chats and other notifications specifically by user, Channel or team.

    I want to be able to set specific Audio notifications by user, group, etc so I can be away from my phone/desk and know who the message is from without going to my desk/phone.

    I need to be able to snooze these audio notification. Just like outlook appointments or meetings.

    IE, I am…

  8. Ability to kick inactive users out of a document

    Many times when working with teams some users will not properly close a document or will leave their workstation with the document active. This creates an issue where if I need to make edits to the document it will not because the file is then considered locked for editing. I would like the ability to close someone out of the document from teams so that I can make updates, changes ...etc ...

  9. General feedback about a half-baked product.

    Right. So here's an example of how this product is rather half baked. This is just one issue- but it is a good, simple stand-in for how the product is not finished.
    What order are the pictures displayed in, when you go to Background Settings? Ordered by date? Size? Filename? I can't figure it out. I shouldn't have to. But along with the inability to pin an entire team, only a channel and other navigation oddities; the way in which there's only one Teams window; the way in which searching for content in teams isn't even a joke- it just…

  10. start Teams chats with the oldest unread messages

    when you open a chat, it should show the oldest unread messages and not the newest ones... like that you wont miss any unread messages. Good example is whatsapp... it always starts with the oldest unread messages and then you scroll down to the newest one...

  11. Notifications when a new channel is created

    Please, I cannot bear having to constantly refresh the page to see if a new channel has been created for my lesson. Please add the ability to be notified when the teacher creates a new channel.

  14. I would like to be able to send messages to a task list

    I would like teams to have a task list that allows you to flag messages to add them as tasks and set basic expiry warnings like how outlook does this for email.

  17. I would like to reduce/clear the list of recent files in microsoft Teams.

    I would like to reduce/clear the list of recent files in microsoft Teams.
    Whenever I want to share a file during a call the list is so big that make me confusion. In addition it doesn't display the whole name of the file but only the first part, so if you have multiple version of the same file it is impossible to distinguish during the call.

  18. New Guest User Invitation Process!

    The process to add guest users is currently complicated. We have thousands of outside individuals whom we would like to collaborate on projects with, and inviting users with Gmail, Yahoo, AOL, or anyone with a domain other than Microsoft suffers a grueling sign up process.

    Here are the following steps I recommend for the guest user invitation and sign up process.

    1. Receives Invite Email with link that opens them into Teams online

    2. Guest User can input their First & Last Name, Company Name, and create a password

  19. How to extract only guest user logs in content search

    You can extract user message and file sharing logs in content search, but please implement a function to extract only guest user logs.
    Although the current log can be checked, it is time-consuming because there is no other way to check the log against the guest information after obtaining the log.
