  1. urgent chat

    Like the fact you can now classify a Chat as being Urgent and the recipient receives a notice every 2 minutes until they acknowledge the Chat. However, you can only use this option when Chatting with one person. Due to the need for business continuity planning and/or disaster recovery notifications, would like to see the capability where you could @mention the Team to allow an entire Team to be notified of an issue/activation of the BCP or declaration of a disaster. At a minimum, would like to see where you could send an Urgent chat to multiple people.

  2. Customized Options to Lock Teams Chat Navigation Menu in minimized view

    Our associates are often running multiple programs at once, therefore it's not uncommon for them to utilize a minimized window view of TEAMS running alongside another program. However, when TEAMS is not in full screen mode, the chat navigation menu on the far left will auto collapse or block chat conversation when it reappears.

    Our request is to allow the user the option to LOCK the chat navigation menu even when they are in a minimized window view for efficiency. Currently the chat nav menu will auto-collapse or appear over the chat conversation and history. Ability to lock and have…

  4. I want to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time

    LOG INTO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
    Original user posted:
    I would like to heave this multi-team/tenant option within “MS Teams”, like in Slack. Currently I’m in four different organization. They’re using all office365, three of them now changed from Slack to Teams. I’ve to permanently login/logout to switch to the related MS Team. This is really time consuming.

    Another user says:
    We need the ability to sign in with multiple accounts. Many of us have several O365 accounts for various reasons (consulting, etc), and we’d need to be able to access teams directly.
    This is not a federation or B2B scenario, but…

    We know you are patiently waiting for this feature. This feature is being implemented in stages. Fast tenant switching is currently in testing both internally and with early customers. We expect to release to the public in the Fall. I’ll post an update once it’s rolling out.

    Full multi-tenant, multi-user support will be added after fast tenant switching.

  5. Please make it so you can have a notification sound device and then a separate call device.

    There are currently only two options for audio. Which for calls is fine, but for messages and incoming calls when you don't have a headset on please add an option to add a third audio device for speakers for ringers and chat notifications. This is a fairly standard layout for almost all current chat and call messengers and there is very little excuse for not keeping up with contemporaries.

  6. 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.

  7. Ability to turn Teams into Channels and Channels into Teams

    In some cases, Teams are created that can be absorbed into existing Teams, and inversely Channels may be created that outgrow their parent Team and need to be separated to allow for channels of it's own. Would be nice to have the ability to convert Channels into Teams (promotion), or convert a Team into a Channel underneath another Team (demotion)

  8. Red X exit confirmation to close Teams

    When you click on the red X in the top right corner during an active meeting, have Teams prompt you to ask if you really want to close Teams. Reason: Many people have accidentally closed Teams during meetings.

  9. Issuing URLs to chat with specific users

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    特定のユーザーとのチャット画面が開く URL を発行できるようにしてほしい

    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.

  10. Chats are disappearing in "recent" after 30days. Add "all" label to browse older (group) chats

    Group chats are a good way to reduce e-Mail ping pong with many people. However the "recent" label only shows chats of the last 30 days. Please introduce a "all" or "history/archive" label to quickly scroll through older chats. A bit like in WhatsApp. This would make it even more helpful.

  11. I would like to create a read-only team

    I would like to create a team that is for everyone in the organization. I can do this already with dynamic membership. The purpose would be to provide access to team members to see documentation such as employee manuals, corporate policies, and other read-only content. Admins can add/delete material while everyone else has read-only access.

  13. Ability to Completely Disable File Sharing

    There needs to be a way to completely remove the "Files" tab from Teams and disable chat attachments as well, so users within the organization cannot share files.

    We have a very strict structure for our internal file sharing and data organization, and cannot have even our internal users sharing files back and forth.

    If this feature doesn't get added we will be forced to abandon Teams completely and go with a 3rd party or open source route.

  17. Hiden notifications when user added or removed from teams in general channel.

    For large corporations, there are frequent changes for users join and leave everyday, this is very annoying and disturbing for everyone to see this kind of info.

    It is not ok for all company users to see people who resigned from the company everyday.

    Please enable admin level configurations to restrict notification access in General channel as soon as possible, thank you!

    I want to be able to customize the upper limit of "Auto-favorite channels".

    If the number of owners is up to "10", it is not satisfactory.

  20. Setting to open Microsoft Teams link in mobile app

    When tapping a link to launch Microsoft Teams (such as a meeting URL or file link) on the mobile, it opens in the browser and you are prompted to use the mobile app.
    It will be very smooth if it can be linked to a mobile app and accessed on mobile Teams.
