    Issuing URLs to chat with specific users


    ■Description(内容):
    SharePoint サイトなどに URL を埋め込み、クリックすると、特定のユーザーとのチャットが開始できるような運用を考えているが、現時点では、Teams で特定のユーザーとのチャット画面が開く URL が発行できないとのことだった。
    今後、任意のユーザーとのチャットを簡単に開始できるようにするため、どのユーザーがクリックしても、特定のユーザーとのチャットが開始できるような URL を発行する機能を提供してほしい。

    We are thinking about to embed URL into SharePoint site to start chatting with specific users in Teams, however, it is not possible to issue the URL for chatting.
    For improvement of usability, please allow us to issue the URLs for chatting with specific users in Teams chat. We believe this feature will make it easier to start chatting with others.

  2. Teams Meeting Room - auto-cancel unjoined meetings

    It would be useful if room-mailboxes could automatically send messages to the owners of un-started Teams Meeting Room meetings to prompt meeting owner to cancel his/her booking. This would free up meeting rooms for planned or ad-hoc meetings.

    So the room could detect if no one has pushed the Join button after let's say 5 minutes of the scheduled time. If no one has pushed the Join button then room-mailbox would send an email to the meeting organiser asking if the meetings is still required.

    If it is not the meeting organiser would just cancel the meeting and thereby free…

  5. Better gradebook downloads

    It would be great if more options were given for the gradebook downloads:


    1. Individual pupil gradebook showing results for all assignments within a set period.

    2. Gradebook that shows rubric feedback for tasks

    3. General formatting of gradebook to be more user friendly.

    4. Options for what information is contained in gradebook. (E.g. selecting points only or feedback only)

  6. priority notifications in Teams conversations in channels

    The new priority messaging feature in chats is very useful, however it would be great if this feature could be used within Team conversations in channels. This way all Team members can receive recurring alerts for urgent messages. Very handy in healthcare.

  7. Self Chat for Notes

    Make it so I can chat with myself and add notes, pictures, docs, and url’s. Faster and easier than using OneNote for quick notes.

    The contact list defaults to open, showing all of your contacts. I would like the ability to keep these list closed since I have so many contacts. It should be up to the user to pick whether or not they want these defaulted open.

  11. Suspend Banners while the status is Busy or Do Not Disturb

    Weather hosting a meeting or just participating in a meeting the continuous popup banners are distracting from the meeting. Provide a setting that allows Banners to be temporarily suspended depending or the persons current availability state (weather manually set or automatically set).

    Make Teams able to be started as ONLY the sidebar, then expand when hovering like all other MS applications (task bar, ribbon menus, etc). Current view uses too much desk space. Then be able to "dock" or "pin" it to a favorite location.

  13. Specify Sign in address

    There should be an option to change the sign-in address for teams. Skype for Business has the option but not teams. I want to set the default sign in address to a user other than the computer user. It always defaults to the computer user.

  16. Give an option to mark all unread messages as read.

    When looking at the Activity Feed in Teams, you can filter by unread but there is no option to select all and mark as read. This would be very helpful.

  17. create channel only

    Dear Teams developer,

    Let me start off: please do not create to much stuff. Keep it simple.

    But do create the following:
    Allow people to create a channel only. So no nesting within a team. A channel as a team. Channel is a team....

    There are a couple of reasons to consider this idea:
    - You already created Pinned channels...why do you think this is?
    - It reduces complexity (it works for slack)
    - You have private channels, why do you think this is?
    - Channels are the places to communicate. We see a lot of teams where only general…

    Regarding changing of Microsoft Teams team names and deletion


    ■Description(内容):
    現在不要なチームの乱立を避けるため、チームを作成できるユーザーを Office 365 管理者のみに制限しています。
    管理者のみで組織内の全メンバーの追加、編集を実施することは現実的でないため、複数の一般ユーザーをチームの所有者に設定しています。
    現在の動作ではチームの所有者であればチーム名の変更、チームの削除ができてしまうため、Office 365 管理者のみチームの編集ができるよう機能の拡張を要望します。
    Currently we have restricted the users who can create teams to Office 365 administrators only in order to avoid having lots of unwanted teams being created.
    It is not practical for the administrator only to add all organization members and edit them, so several normal users have been set as the team owners.
    But currently as long as a user is a team owner they can change the team name and delete the team, so…
