  1. Join new conversations to existing conversation

    There is a common issue of new conversations being started in Channels, when users should use the reply feature.

    Please provide an option to join or link a new conversation to an existing conversation, as a reply. Ideally, the user that accidentally started a new conversation would receive notification that their convo has been moved/linked. This feature can be available to moderators/owners and have a permission option that allows members to do this as well.

  2. 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.

  3. Read receipts for channels/groups

    It would be great to have read receipts for channels/groups to see how many people from our audience is aware of a certain post. As an example, this functionality exists in Skype (not Skype for Business, but the standard app) as well. Thank you!

  4. Breakout Rooms Option instead of Channels

    Similar to what other platforms have, while in a meeting have an option to select "breakout rooms" and let have option to auto-manage and divide the breakout room(s) or manually assign people to a breakout room

  5. Answering incoming Calls with Teams

    Incoming call with Teams, when the call answer window pops up, the outer phone Icon is End Call and it is Red. I am always clicking it and ending a call instead of answering. Make the answer icon the outer icon with green color

  6. World Clock as a banner on the top of Teams

    It would be great to have a World Clock that allows the users to choose different time zones to show 5+ clocks. Since many users of Teams is worldwide, having the ability to see common used timezones would be very helpful.

  7. Make the Monkeys Dance to their Own Beat

    Would be great when I enter multiple monkey emojis (or the other "lesser" emojis) if they preserved their individual timing like when I initially enter them. Once posted, they all run in sync. Make this happen.

  9. Separate Group and Personal Chats

    In the chat tab, it would be nice if one-on-one chats were organized separately from group chats.

    It is easy to mistake a group chat for a one-on-one chat which causes users to message a group by mistake, when the message was intended for a specific person in a one-on-one chat private chat.

    Other platforms have this feature, and it would be nice to see it in Teams as well

  10. Meeting/Presentation pop up

    It would be nice to be able to pop-out a meeting window so it doesn't limit you from chatting and collaborating

  12. Toggle Between Teams without Going Back to Teams Menu

    Currently, when you're in a Team and you need to go to a different Team, you have to go back to your ALL TEAMS menu. Why can't there just be a drop menu (or smtg) that brings up your list and you can toggle between Teams right there. The extra set of leaving and coming back in is annoying and takes too much time.

  13. Hide specific users in some teams

    It would be beneficial to some organization if Microsoft Teams add a feature of hiding specific users in some public/private teams in order to prevent other members to see them from the member list.

  15. Retrieve announcements via Graph API

    The Graph API doesn't support the distinction between a normal conversation or an announcement in Teams (see property messageType on https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/chatmessage?view=graph-rest-beta)

  16. Capability to rotate and zoom images in Assignment submissions

    Include capability to rotate and zoom images in Microsoft Teams Assignment submissions.

    This is currently only possible if you download the image.

  17. Make a sensitivity label mandatory when creating or editing a Team

    Could an option be added to make a sensitivity label mandatory when creating or editing a Team if there is at least one label available to the user.
    At present when creating or editing a Team, a user has the option to choose 'None' by default. This would ensure that all Teams have a label.

    This would be invaluable when trying to control external access to Teams.
    An 'Internal' Sensitivity label can be created with the "external user access" disabled and publised to all users in the tenant. When applied to a Team, the Sensitivity label controls whether or not…

  18. If you are in a Teams meeting, and you click on a link to open a document in Teams, could we have it default to open in the Native app?

  19. Delete General Channel

    I'd like the option to remove the General Channel entirely. It's not a necessary item when uploaded items are already noted on the files tab. General just provides redundant info that is not useful and distracting for very large teams.

  20. Show hand raise feature for ipad

    I am not able to use the Hand signal in iPad. It would be better to add it for those devices.
