  1. If you are not owner of a team, you should'nt be able to see the "Create a channel" tab

    You can still see the "Create a channel" tab even if you are not the owner of the team.
    And as I know, you can't create a channel if you are not the owner. So, this is quite disturbing.
    Plus, the error message is not very clear. It only says "An error occurred while creating the channel" but doesn't tell us which problem.

  2. Add grab handle icon on mouse over of top bar of attendees box instead of same arrow as the rest

    When presenting and you mouse over the box of other attendee in Teams, the finger pointer icon appears as you move over their contact details, but you cannot grab and move the box out of the presentation window when this icon shows.
    When you move to the top bar a standard pointer appears, but the same pointer remains across the rest of the desktop, so it isn't obvious this is how you grab and move the box.
    I propose that you add the animated grab icon (standard) to appear when the user mouses over the top bar of the attendee…

  4. planner tab broke 8-27-2018

    We have a tab in our team's channels to Planner. This has worked up until this morning at this point the tab no longer loads. If we remove and readd the tab (within the teams app) it doesn't load up the choices to pick the planner (see screenshot). The tab works fine in the team's web gui. Just the app is broke this morning.

  7. Keep people in the loop with Loops

    Since we have been using Teams in our organisation (100+ people) since release we have grown into needing some form of group based chat that isn't via channels. The group Chats work ok but have limitations (newly invited users can't see history) and are missing features (Can't remove other users from a group chat).

    Space here for Loops!

    User created, administrated and deleted
    Potential to integrate with the lifecycle of the workitem
    Loops will be it's own custom channel made on the fly.
    Will will be administrated by a user or org administrators
    Will be able to have intergrations/automations
    History…

  8. Email Icon and accessibility

    Add the Email icon (just like you have for calendar) on the left bar. Instant access to email, this way i can stay in teams all day.

  9. SharePoint tab renders blank screen for SharePoint Online vanity domains

    Users get a blank screen when attempting to add a SharePoint page tab from the SharePoint online vanity domains. This is a much needed feature unavailable at present and there isn't any workaround available.

  10. Hi guys... I would like to help..

    When I type several messages into a TEAMS window they appear above the text box as distinct messages... but the skype method of grouping them together gives a much smoother user experience and critically... if I select and right click on a previously typed message I get option 'quote message' .. highly useful in a busy chat session. I can also select a previous message and forward to anyone... also very useful.

    overall you need to compact the message thread.... its too gappy. .. remove the reply button.. why is it not inside the three dots on right side??? this…

  11. Forced auto-hiding of chat pane in new update is terrible

    The new update I just received to the Windows Teams thick client app is incredibly annoying. The Chat pane on the left auto-hides now, and I can't find an option to disable that. I am constantly flipping between multiple conversations, and now I have to mouse over it, select it, and I can't even read the left side of the conversation I just selected until it hides itself a second or two later.

    HORRIBLE change - I don't know what the Teams devs were thinking, do they even consider common use cases that they themselves may not utilize?....

  12. edit documents automatically in office365 instead of needing to click edit from view mode.

    The teams editor is slow to open. PDFs are for viewing, docs are for editting. If I can change the default action of a .doc to launch in 365 this would save me a lot of time! Now each time I need to click the arrow next to edit, then select office365. Then need to dismiss the popup in Teams again.

  13. Most Recent Posts at the Bottom?

    I cannot think of a single application that does this. Overall it is a terrible design. People read from top to bottom and left to right and that comes natural to people. Reversing this makes the application seem clunky and awkward. Its hard to get buy in from my team because of this.

  14. Ability to reorganize threads.

    Usually we start conversation on a thread, but during conversation in progress, it will involve more than 1 issue. when that happen, I would like to separate thread and move some written message to new thread. but it is not possible at current version of Teams. ( of course, text can be copy& paste. but it don't have entire info e.g. writer's name & icon ) . so if possible please add move message function in ... of each thread.

  15. Improve the UX

    It isnt clear how it works. When coming from skyoe or hangout, you are not familiar with this kind of social app. Therefore, sending and receiving chat is not natural... subscribing to a grouo is not yet intuitive...

  16. Simpler design

    I feel like the current layout of the app is a bit confusing. I'd love to use the app if it was easier to.

  18. Allowing office online apps to open attachments in Class Notebook

    We are using Class Notebook within the Teams application and we are planning on rolling this out to our school. I think the frustrating thing is that you cannot attach a PowerPoint file into a page within Class Notebook and open it with PowerPoint online. You must open the document first with OneNote to be able to open it with PowerPoint, in which both programs are installed locally on the computer. It poses a problem should a student not have OneNote installed at home. If we upload PowerPoint/Word documents into the ‘FILES’ section of Teams, then this feature works and…

  20. A. I'd really love it if the "Suggested" area weren't just collapsible but removable. It has people in there I haven't contacted for months.

    Get rid of "Suggested." It's worthless.
    And WHY is there no way to call into a Teams meeting??? Stupid. We're looking at Cisco Teams because of that.
