  1. Already submit the message while uploading an attachment

    Right now you have to wait for an attachment to be uploaded before you can submit the message. This way you can forget to submit the message while multitasking during an upload on slow connections or when using large files. While uploading you should be able to press return and then it should autopost the message when the upload has finished. A button/link to cancel the autopost would be handy in case you accidentally pressed return.

  2. Record Teams activity in Win 10 Task View or similar

    Navigating in Teams on time line is difficult to recall back what or where i had a conversation. The Task View option is a nice timeline to scroll back in activities. Could teams and conversations be included into Task View or can Teams offer a similar timeline control. I thought of this when trying to track back in my activity seen it held no more then a day back and it was not easy to identify and navigate. But if it was like Task View in Win 10 it would be nice to see the timeline of which team and…

  4. List of users registered to a team/channel

    When using/commenting in a team/channel, it would be nice to have a sidebar that lists all the users registered to that Team/Channel. At times, Our team members have sensitive info to provide to certain members that others should not see. With a large organization, some personnel may use the wrong channel to post this info if they are not aware of who is able to view the post.It would also be nice to see who is available to answer and who is busy or away.

  5. Conversation tab template

    I would like the ability to open a Channel and select a Conversation Template.
    I open channels and add the same "Announcements" into the conversation tab for all of my projects. I would like to be able to select a template that populates all of those Announcements. I open anywhere from 50-100 Channels a month. Example of some of my Announcements.
    Thanks!

  8. Have default folders designated for attachments, emails sent to channels, etc.

    Currently, if you email a channel it goes into a folder which gets auto-created called "Email Messages". If you attach a file in a Channel, it's automatically dumped into that Channel's root folder. This can get very messy, very quickly.

    Files that end up associated with a channel should be put into an organized, default set of folders, similar to how OneDrive has a set of special-purpose folders (https://www.ctrl.blog/entry/how-to-onedrive-special-folders.html).

    Ideally, these folders would have some way of being sorted separately from user-created folders, or a Team Owner could change which folder is used for different purposes.

    In this…

  9. organization chart

    The organization tab is great to be able to navigate through reports and see the organization structure. It shows detailed information on employees and makes it easy to contact.

    We would like to move away from our current Org Chart software but to do this we would need a few things:
    1) An indicator to show which employee has direct reports
    2) An ability to export or print the currently selected organization
    3) Ability to show children, so you can see direct reports for multiple levels of the organization
    4) Ability to go to the top of the Org Chart…

  10. About Guest access

  11. Ability to Assign ToDo(s) Directly from Chat or Group Chat

    Need the ability to assign a ToDo (or work) from a Teams Group Chat or Chat. Then, those tasks can integrate with Planner or where Microsoft plans to display all tasks for a specific Team member.

  12. Enable moving direct chat messages from chat to channel and between channels

    Teams channels are a hybrid of message a board and shared email folders. Basically they replace intercompany email and eliminate the need for message boards.

    Yet, bot these offer one key functionality which Teams does not have yet: ability to sort and move channels by admins... Or to pin key messages at the top.

    In message boards messages are often moved to an appriopriate subboard... Email are often moved to appriopriate folders... Yet teams messages cennot be moved.. But ONLY edited or deleted.

  13. Drag-and-drop and copy/paste function while remote controlling a user

    This is something I would assume is highly sought after from a lot of people. It would make screen sharing very useful.

  15. Activity notification email to the administrator

    You should notify the administrator about each user's activity.
    Security It is necessary to send a notification email to the specified email address when the specified activity occurs, with the same content (or added to the activity) as the alert policy of the Compliance Center.

  16. "To Do" due date for Next Week = Monday not Sunday

    To Do for Business "Next Week" assignment should avoid Saturday/Sunday - likely default to next Monday. When I click on the "Add due date" and "Next Week" the default to Sunday isn't useful when for business usage.

  17. Improve media management for video and photos posted in channel

    Currently when attaching media to a channel post the file goes to the root of that channel's document structure. There is no option to direct how that file gets organized and if you move it the original post link breaks and does not display media.

    My recommendation is that you either create a "Channel Media" folder on the root of the channel documents or update link if file is moved.

  18. Conversations - display full messages and leave the choice to the users to display full conversations or just the headers (see more)

    It is very difficult to find something (without using the search bar) in the conversations when the biggest part of the messages are hidden. The users would need to have the choice to see automatically full conversations or just the headers (as it is now) others like Slak or Cisco Webex Teams have this option to expand all!

  19. Allow folder icon to change and indicate if folder is populated with files or not

    We have large "default" directory trees. If would be great if folder icon could change to indicate the presence of files withing the folder; this way I would save time not opening empty folders when looking for files.

    Alternatively, if in Team could select "view large icons" then could the folder icon change automatically to indicate presence of files like it does in Explorer?
