  3. Route documents from Channel emails to a subfolder in the SharePoint library

    I have a project team that like the idea of using the Channel emails to route documents to the Project Team folders in SharePoint. However, they have nested folders and would like to know if there is a way to get the documents only (i.e. attachments) to the subfolders, not he email itself.

  6. Conversation option for classroom - Reply before seeing other's comments

    In an LMS, teachers can pose a question or a prompt and require that student respond and then respond to other's posts. This is a feature that would change how we use Teams.

  7. Teams Event QA

    Make QA the same as in Broadcast - right now in QA you can only broadcast the question and not the answer, what good is that? We need to be able to broadcast both question and answer. The on-line doc says you can, but opening a ticket, it is being told that only the question can be broadcasted. We will never be able to get off of SFB this way because CIO uses QA but needs answers to be able to be Broadcasted.

  8. Allow to expand groups of more than 25 users when adding members to a team.

    When adding members to a TEAMS team, we would need the option to expand security groups or Office365 of more than 25 members. Currently, in cases where this number is exceeded, it is not possible to expand the members and you can not select only the members that you want to include in the team.

  10. Fix: highlighted new chats in Favorite Contacts

    Until this week, this was a functioning feature: when someone initiated a chat, no matter if I was in Recent or Contacts/Favorites (within Chat), the Chat icon would light up and that user's name would be bold to indicate the new chat.

    Now Chat still lights up on the menu bar, but the user indications are gone on the Contacts/Favorites side. I have to keep switching back to Recent to find and read new chats.

  12. News/Home Icon on Left Navigation for SharePoint News

    It would be great to have a News/Home on the left navigation to easily get the latest news for your team in a centralized location within teams. The new icon on the left navigation would pull the published news into Teams from SharePoint to use the "likes" and "comments" system for Teams instead of sending the user to SharePoint which uses a different like and comment system.

    While there we have the SharePoint Tab and Connector they dont offer a rich experience.

    The tab has no navigation. If you click on any link, like a published news, you cannot navigate…

  13. Switching Team defaults to General Channel Conversation - Navigation (UI / UX)

    Please, Please can we default the main content area to General channel as I click through the teams.

    Many in our organization will select a team and post the message. However, the Main Area hasn't switched to the new team and Channel.

    It's a small thing but I think it'll add a lot to user experience and conversation confidence and cadence.

  15. Сделайте так чтобы можно было создавать главную страницу команды

    Что то типа визуального редактора, чтобы например можно было добавить карточки с сайтами, и чтобы при переходе по ним открывалась новая вкладка в программе а не браузере.

  16. Department teams and Agile/Project teams

    In an organization where projects are developed across different departments, and where each project might involve different people within those departments, it would be useful to be able to:


    • Having an "umbrella team" for each department

    • Each Team (Agile team) represents a project with people from different departments

    • That Team/Project could be under different "umbrella teams" depending on which department the user belongs to

  17. favourite

    Provide the ability to have a favourites list for Channels and not Teams. As a member of numerous Teams, I would like a list of all my favourite channels (that I follow) in one single Favourites list.

    So, basically, a favourites list with channels from different teams.

  18. Sharing Desktop Zoom in and out capability

    Participants should have the capability to zoom in on the user who's sharing their screen with the participants.
    this functionality is available on Skype for business, it's called Actual Size / Windows Fit

  20. Gradebook

    As a teacher it would be really useful if the grades you gave an assignment went automatically to a team gradebook, instead of having to export them each time.
