  1. Enabling Quote replu function

    Quote Reply function would be nice addition to Teams app.
    Other Instant Messaging apps have this functionality: user needs to choose a conversation, tap and hold any message he or she wants to quote: (It must be one message), then tap the reply symbol and
    type in the reply to the quoted message. Finally the user Clicks on send button/icon.

  3. Redirect "Create Team" Button to Custom URL

    We want for our users to be able to see the Create Teams button, because we don't want to discourage Team Creation. However, we would like to moderate and confirm team creations to ensure proper naming conventions and formats are followed, as well as avoiding duplicates. While we can disable the Create Team button entirely for most everyone but a select few, we have found people upset that we've taken away part of the purpose to MS Teams. In an attempt to help the users still feel in control, we would like for the "Create Team" button to redirect to…

  4. 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.

  5. Increase number of participants in TEAMS

    Can you all increase the number of participants you can view in TEAMS? I have a company of about 26 managers and would like to see all.

  6. chat history delete or archive

    On the Chat panel, allow the user to delete chat history or at least archive it. Hide feature is nuisance.

    Also, the chat contact list should be the default view rather than opening the recent chat.

  7. Notification sounds.

    There is no option for notification sounds. I don't receive any audible notifications any time someone posts in a channel or feed. There is a visual notification but I don't have this window in view constantly, so an audible sound would be great. Hard to believe this isn't already an option.

  8. Allow Teams to use the same auto correct rules and custom dictionaries as the rest of Office 365

    So far all parts of teams do not run auto correction for proofing. Additionally, it seems to need it's own custom dictionary for custom entries. Teams should be able to use the auto correct rules and look ups and custom dictionaries that are created to be used with Office 365. This would allow for the auto capitalisation of words at the beginning of a sentence, common spelling and grammar error correction. It would also allow for the custom auto corrections of names or adding of internal company terms.
    This capability is available across all desktop office programs and seen as…

  10. More info in individual chats

    Would like more information in individual chats, the person's name at the top appears- Add the Team they are in with you. Or a listing of Teams you share in common when you mouse over their icon to to find out their information.

  11. Add multiple (and private) channels to a Teams Meeting Invite

    It appears that I cannot invite multiple channels to a Teams meeting and I cannot ever add a private channel to a Teams meeting

  13. Ability to query channel message timestamps via MS Graph

    I was developing a Python app to query MS graph for pulling a comprehensive report on MS Teams usage in the environment, including inactive Teams.Teams activity may be deducted from the timestamps of the latest messages in the Team channels - when we try to issue a get request for this node we get an unknown error: messagesendpoint = ('https://graph.microsoft.com/beta/teams/%s/channels/%s/messages' % (teamid, channel_id))

    This is also discussed on the Graph repo issues section: https://github.com/microsoftgraph/microsoft-graph-docs/issues/4797

  14. Assignment deadlines appear in calendar

    Can all assignments be displayed for a student in deadline order rather than they have to click on each class (Team) to check. Or put the deadlines I the calendar.

  15. Provide a feature to reply to a specific message in a group chat

    Provide a feature to reply to a specific message in a group chat as explained below:

    It is hard to reply to a specific person in a group unless until you mention the name of the specific person, It would look more intuitive if we could reply to a particular message to a particular person in a group chat as it realy shows the communication is going in a right direction than in one way communciation to the whole group chat.

  16. Allow admins to restrict attendees from inviting people to meetings or meet nows

    At the moment, an attendees of a meet now can invite another user to be an attendee, even when that second user is not a member of the team. Whilst this can be useful, there are two scenarios that have cropped up which are cause for concern -

    In an educational context, you can't prevent pupils adding other pupils who aren't part of the class in order to disrupt the lesson.

    If you are in a meeting of a confidential nature, you cannot prevent an attendees from inviting someone into that meeting that shouldn't be there.

    It would be very…

  17. Possiblity to move messages into threads

    Many people respond to messages without using the reply functionality. We need a way to moderate these responses so that we could move messages into threads.

  18. Discoverable Private Channels

    It would be useful to have discoverable private channels (just like we have discoverable private teams)

    i.e. it is important for a channel to be private in a team that is shared within your company and the client

  19. 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.…

  20. It would be great if we could archive assignments in Teams.

    We have only been using Teams to do distance learning for a few weeks now, but the list of assignments is getting long with the current one being at the bottom of the list. It would be great to be able to archive previous weeks assignments. I tried deleting a couple but that was a bad idea. Students, parents, and teachers need to refer back to work that was turned in from time to time.
