  3. Share specific folder within Sharepoint Document Library for channels in Teams

    While allowing different document libraries works to share specific content in Teams, it requires moving documents that already exist. This creates a problem for users who have already synced folders or created links to files in the current structure.

  4. Set reminders on conversations and replies within a conversation.

    Problem: You create a conversation to do something (such as create a new icon) and the team member responds they will get to it later, but there is no way to go back to see what conversations require follow up.

    Possible solution: set reminders on a conversation or a reply within a conversation for individual team members or the whole team with a certain date or time.

  5. Action items and tracking

    It would be awesome to add action items in any of channel to a person and each person received consolidated list of action items (in separate space) that they can review without going thru each of the channel

  6. Follow the parent channel

    Would like to see 'follow channel' option for the parent, allowing to automatically follow all the child channel. Alternatively, you can follow selective child channel as per now.

  7. Setting to choose if Private Teams should still be searchable

    We create our Teams as private by default since they are about the clients we work with. We are okay with everyone at the company knowing that these Teams exist, but we don't want them to be able to join them without permission.

    The problem we're having is that people keeping asking 'does a Team exist for client X?' and there is no easy way to answer that question.

    We'd like a way to search for private teams so that folks can request to join them.

  8. Invite new member to multiple/all Teams

    I would like to see a feature where we can select multiple, or all Teams and invite a user.

    We use Teams to manage our customers and with had 45 separate Teams, one per customer. When we hire a new employee we have to add them 45 times.

  9. Ability to search files within the Files tab in a Team

    One good feature would be to be able to search in the Files section within a Team. You can provide a search button so we can search through the Files section without leaving the app.

  10. Show list of team members on the left

    Show list of team members on the left or somewhere else so I don't have to go to the team list in the main window.

  11. Allow quick way to copy an entire task (with all information) to the same plan or also a completely different one

    E.g. offer a structure "Plain Text" view which would allow the user to quickly copy & paste an existing task anywhere he wants...


    • new task in same plan

    • new task in different plan

    • offline "backup" or "template" for later usage

  12. Master Notebook & Assignment book.

    It is unacceptable that copying and assignment distribution is not a basic feature already part of teams. Who in their right mind would think its a good idea for users to create an assignment and force them to recreate it several times across multiple sections. At the very least you should create it once for say for 1st period class and just copy it over to your other periods Teams.

    There needs to be a Master team where you create a class notebook with assignment book that can be assigned individually to independent teams/members. This way with your master you…

  13. Unlimitted Channels

    We create a new team for each of the clients we work with, and we create a new channel for each different project that a particular client has. Some of our clients have more than 200 (actually, more than 2000) different projects. Need to be able to keep adding new channels for each new project.

  14. Files very slow to open, edit, upload

    I uploaded an excel doc that was less then 2 MB's, which took a while, then when reopening it - the document wont open back within 5 minutes. Editing documents also takes a while to update the information.

  17. Improve UI for following channels

    It seems that to get proper notification about channel activity, you have to "follow" a channel. However this is far from obvious as the option is buried in a context menu. Furthermore, the fact whether a channel is followed/not followed is not clearly indicated.

    I would prefer if the follow/unfollow option was indicated in a similar way as the favourite channel star, placing a symbol besides the channel name that can be toggled with the mouse.

    Furthermore channels in the "n more channels" popup currently can't be followed. That should be possible.

  18. Unify or synchronize posts across channels with @channel references

    When in a channel (e.g., channel1) and you @-mention a different channel (e.g., @channel2) in a post, the post should appear in BOTH channels and the conversation between them should be syncronized.

    This would allow people to better manage conversations that cross multiple channel domains.

  20. Delete Connector Generated Posts

    We have an RSS connector publishing posts to a channel. Sometimes, these posts aren't relevant to the channel.

    It would be good if anyone (or possibly just the Group Owners) could delete these connector generated posts.

    Without deleting the post, relevant channel connect gets pushed up the feed meaning its more likely that useful conversations aren't seen.
