  1. Each instance of a recurring meeting should have separate conversation history

    We have a recurring meeting tied to the team's channel and the conversation history has grown way too long over time. Each reply also notifies the accumulation of all participants even if they're not attending the current instance anymore.

  2. Calendar coloring

    Would be good if we can have a color code option in Microsoft Teams Calendar to identify calendar events quickly!

  3. Adding somebody to a task who is not a contributor

    I want to be able to add my boss to a task so as he can see progress and updates. However, I currently have to assign the task to him as well. Clearly this is not ideal. I want some way of giving him access without actually assigning it to him

  4. Nested Groups exceeded the Max Limit of 25

    There is probably a suggestion for better integration for AD groups, but creating a team for Engineering our existing DL's are used to manage all membership. Adding a DL to a Team, that has many nested DL's does not seem allowed.

    Need to
    1/ support AD Groups as a first class citizen
    2/ support for nested DL's that are greater than 25

  5. Black Screen in Teams

    Teams in an RDS environment shows a black screen on office documents when editing in Teams. Clearing the teams folders solves it only once, until next log on.

  6. Reply to a specific message higher up in a thread

    Our team is using threaded discussions properly, but sometimes I want to respond to a specific message higher up in the thread -- not at the bottom of the thread.

    This would also suggest the need for deeper hierarchy of threads. Each reply should be offset within a thread (and there should be replies to replies to replies, etc.) and you should be able to collapse these hierarchies for ease of reading and viewing.

  7. Gradebook

    As a teacher it would be really useful if the grades you gave an assignment went automatically to a team gradebook, instead of having to export them each time.

  8. datadog

    Teams integration with DataDog has incorrect instructions.

    For those not in a multi-DD install, simply use "app" as the domain name.

    Hopefully this will be fixed in the UI down the road, but until then we've confirmed that this resolves the integration issues while troubleshooting with DD engineers.

    To fix, the Datadog connector popup modal should be edited from the original "Enter subdomain of your account" to "Enter subdomain of your account. Users with only one Datadog account, this is `app`".

  10. We need to post files with the # sign in the name without rejection.

    Back when, OneDrive rejected files with the # sign on other symbols in the name, but has been changed. Lots and lots of users put the # sign in the name of their files. It is very annoying to have a file rejected because of this.

  12. make "best practices" the default settings for teams rollout

    Why doesn't MS just make the "Best Practices" the default settings for rollout? It would save us all time. For example:
    "Allow only team owners to post to the General channel"
    and
    "Turn off @Team and @[team name] mentions"
    As it is, administrators all have to find the setting and change them manually. Just set them for us if that's the best bet.

  13. Stop changing the order of Favorite Teams

    Whenever I am added to a new team, it is automatically added to Favorites, and my Favorites rearrange themselves in no discernible order. I don't think either of those should happen when I am added to a new team.

  15. Team owner leaves organisation

    What can be done when a team owner leaves the organisation however the 'team' continues in their absence.

    Can a new person be allocated as the team owner?

    Can you change the team owner (say a staff member has long term leave) without the owner completing the task?

  16. last read

    Would like channels to automatically open at the Last Read location and not automatically mark everything as read so that I can track my actual location (like Yammer did).

  17. Inking

    Adding ink comments to student assignments in Word etc. using the web editor rather than having to switch to the app. This slows the flow of marking work substantially.

  19. Be able to return a file to students when grading an Assignment

    It would be nice to be able to return a file to a student when grading an Assignment. Whether it be a marked up version of a grading rubric, a video that further explains a topic that the student needs for reinforcement, a copy of an exemplar submission, an answer key, etc...

  20. Windows 10 1803 lose top bar on startup

    When opening Teams for the first time on a system with Windows 10-1803. The Teams Desktop App doesn't show the top part of the window on screen.

    To fix you have to pull a corner of the screen to resize and you can then see the full window.
