  2. Private channel access by non Team member

    The new private channel functionality doesn’t solve the basic private channels need. We have tons of needs for private channels where we want to invite someone to a channel but not give them access to the rest of the team. One example: BD proposal where you need a non-BD team member to be involved. They can’t have access to other BD files, just this one channel for this one proposal. Since they can’t have access to other BD files they aren’t part of the team, but if they aren’t part of the team they can’t get access to the channel.…

  5. Add hold music in consultative transfer of PSTN calls

    When putting a PSTN call on hold in Teams the caller will hear music. But when you do a consultative transfer the caller gets total silence before he gets transferred. Please also add music here.

  8. "Tabbed" Conversations under the Main Conversations Tab of the Channel.

    "Tabbed" conversations under the main conversations tab of the channel could work like OneNote "Pages" under a "Section", i.e. allow for Conversation Groups and separate Conversation below that can be browed through and enables a flexible structure. Custom notifications should be allowed and Badges on top of the Tabs and Subtabs should simplify tracking these conversations.
    These conversations should be able to be deleted or archived (this may happen already in the Groups) by the owner of the group in order to remove finished conversations like a Task Force or Project conversation.
    Allow to invite people not part of a…

  9. Feature to disable message/notification "User Joined/User has been removed" in Org-Wide Teams.

    Can this be implemented please as some leavers need to be hidden from everyone to see as everytime a user is disabled in AD this is replicated in the org-wide team as it directly syncs up. It's a real pain, surely there can be a way to suppress this, even so it's just owners who see this?

  10. Support multiple organizations without switching

    Please allow multiple organizations within teams without switching. Just like Outlook supports multiple email addresses. We work with multiple companies and would like a seamless Teams communication tool.

  11. Copying text is pants

    Currently trying to select text to copy in an indidual message is almost impossible.

    When copying, it either overlays the Save and Like icons or copies the text below as well.

    We're having to past text into word docs to get the trimmed data we need

  12. When clicking on a team the main pane should be the home page of the SharePoint site and have "Home" as a default tab before Conversations

    If I have a team selected and click on another team it either expands or collapses that team but the main pain doesn't change and I am still looking at content from the previous team. It would be nice if the main pane displayed the "Home" page of the underlying SharePoint site so News, Links and Activity is displayed and you have navigated away from the previous team. It would also be nice if that was a default tab on the General channel navigation as the first thing you come to. We manually add that to every Team.

  13. Allow me to share multiple applications without sharing my entire screen.

    We often share during calls, but sharing the entire screen is not helping when reminders come in that distract from the shared screen and discussion. It would be great to have a feature similar to WebEx allowing the selection of multiple apps that are ok to share (e.g. all xls and all ppt, but not other apps).

  14. Beeping When Transferring Calls

    Whenever I go to transfer a call in Teams, there is an annoying beep that sounds over and over again until I make a new call. It is like a hold signal. This needs done away with.

  15. hide logging of "joined the team" and "has been removed from the team"

    Ability to hide logging Person A "joined the team" and Person B "has been removed from the team" in the channel settings. For sites with large audience this is extraneous information to scroll through that we would want to hide most of the time.

  16. Define What app to open with when you open a document in teams

    We have found some documents work better in the desktop apps than in the online version. Good example Excel and Onenote.

    As a team owner have a way to flag a document where it always wants to open in Desktop excel.

  17. Customize default sort order of folders in Teams

    Folders in Teams are sorted by default on last modified date. There is no option to set a different default sort order like an alphabetic sort order.

    Please add options that allows the user to set his/her own default sort order in order to sort folder names in Teams.

  18. Order Teams

    Please add a button that allows you to view Teams in alphabetical order. I know teams can be dragged into order but this is tedious and when teams get hidden and you unhide them again they are no longer in order so a button to make this view possible and the ability to have this as a default view would be brilliant.

  19. Prevent Team deletion by mistake

    We currently face often the issue that some team-owners try to leave a team. But for reasons i don't know they sometimes flip from leave team to delete team. And then they tend to not read the following Dialoge and set the checkmark and click delete. Then the Team is gone…

    What i have in mind is to ask the user, like in MMORPGs, to write the Team name again manually in a Textbox before enabling the deletion Button. If they mean it to delete the team then it is ok.

    If they have flipped buttons they will then read…

  20. Channel only members & guests

    Channel only members enable collaboration with people outside the team in a specific channel, without granting them access to the team itself.  The channel member could be someone in your organization, or external to your organization (guest).
