  1. hide logging of "joined the team" and "has been removed from the team"

    Ability to hide logging Person A "joined the team" and Person B "has been removed from the team" in the channel settings. For sites with large audience this is extraneous information to scroll through that we would want to hide most of the time.

  3. Hide "Open in Sharepoint" option in files menu

    My company would like to restrict the "Open in Sharepoint" option in the files menu for certain teams/channels. The ability to hide this feature would be great.

  5. Control the “Archive team” functionality by Admin

    We would like to let admin control the “Archive team” functionality. We don’t want a team owner to archive a team on his own.

  6. From HipChat/Slack to Teams -- So much clicking.

    Our office is in the process of moving form HipChat to Team. We all agreed that Slack had a better interface but Teams was included with O365 and did not feel Slack was worth the price. Our user base is made up primarily of Developers and Linux Engineers that use chat way more than average users. Our experience has been frustrating due to the amount of clicking between teams channels and chats, Clicking to see who is present in the Team/Channel, the active feed uses first names rather than user names or full names and requiring a click to upload…

  7. Multiple Office 365 Accounts

    I have 3 Office 365 Accounts. I am a member/admin for teams on each account. How can teams from all three accounts be shown in a single instance of the team app?

  8. Meeting Notes Section Name add Date of Meeting

    The new Meeting Notes gets the name of the section from the meeting name. If you have meetings with same names it will be confusing. Would be great if the Meeting Notes automatically took the date of the meeting first, then the meeting name. For example: 20181111 - Budget Meeting.

  9. Folders for Teams

    The ability to create 'Folders' for containing Teams. This would be an expansion on the 'Favorites' functionality. Custom folders to contain teams would allow users to keep groups of Teams contained together for clarity and also helps with organization. Similar to how you can group contacts in skype for business.

  10. You should be able to invite people to EITHER teams OR channels. As is, we have to create WAY too many teams, when a channel should suffice.

    As constructed, I end up having to invite people to a particular Team when all I really want them to access is a specific Channel within a Team. I ought to be able to invite people to a Team or invite them to a specific Channel within a Team. This would be HUGELY helpful and limit the potentially overwhelming number of Teams that would otherwise need to be created.

  11. Allow us to change our initial colors and color-code the schedule view in the Planner App!

    Currently our initial circle color is random, but we should have the ability to pick our own color so that everyone on the team is different and there are no duplicates.

    Additionally, if you download the Planner app in Teams, having different colors is essential, especially when you are using the schedule view. Everything being white does not help anyone and it is one of the reasons people will look elsewhere for other apps outside of Microsoft.

    Colors would be VERY beneficial and should be easy on your end to implement. Please consider in order to make this a better…

  14. Block individual internal / external users in chat or displaying in channels

    It would be good to have the ability to mute users in all aspects of teams. Individual users should have control over this if they need to mute users for various reasons. My idea is similar to muting meetings that pop-up in chat. You would be able to see a post in teams or IM if you explicitly clicked on a message / chat, but otherwise this would be invisible.

  15. Team Templates

    When I create a Microsoft Team for a project, our organization would like to be able to keep the Sharepoint structure that goes along with it.

    For example if we use a Template team to create a project called 20201 and it has 7 channels in it, we would like the in sharepoint structure to come along with it if each of those channels has general files that are used on every project.

    This would allow shorter project creation time, and make project leaders more likely to use Teams for their projects.

  16. Guest users as Teachers

    It would be great to be able to add users from another institution as Teachers. In our case we have students that are overseen by two different institutions and require feedback from both. Let's say Institution A creates a Class Team. At the moment adding teachers from institution B automatically sets them as students. It would be great if Teachers in institution B can be added as teachers in the Teams environment of institution A avoiding the need to create another account within institution A.

  17. External users to work like Skype for business with access via a browser from a link

    We would like to invite an external user to a meeting - like we could on Skype for business - the external user could click a link from our invite and a web browser open and Skype for business would work through the browser WITHOUT having to log in - good to have this functionality in Teams

  18. Add subject to private chat conversations with individuals

    I know that it is possible to name a group chat, but I also want to be able to do this for chats with individuals.

    With this in place, I would be able to have different "conversation" with individuals. This could also remove the need for implementing full support for conversations (e.g. like what is available within Channels)his way I can have multiple

    When trying to do this with an individual I get an error message saying "You need to add at least one more person to start a chat." (attached)

  19. Allow us to move/copy existing channel to another Teams

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams のチームの配下に作成済みのチャネルを、別のチームへ、移動 / 複製ができるよう機能の拡充を希望します。
    Allow us to move/copy existing channel to another Teams

    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams でチームの配下に追加したチャネルをタブの追加などを実施して細かく作成をしているものがあった場合に、他チームへチャネルの移動 / 複製ができると非常に利便性が向上すると考えております。現段階では、チャネルの作り直しや、新規作成で利用をしておりますが非常に工数がかかるように感じられます。
    工数削減のためにも、チャネルを他のチームへ移動 / 複製が可能となるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

    I would like to have the feature to move/copy channel which is including many tabs from one Teams to another. In current feature, we need to recreate exactly same channel as we want to copy, or just create new one and those process take a lot of time.

    To reduce these work load, please implement the feature to move/copy existing channel to another Teams.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  20. Remove wiki tab from default team creation

    Please allow the capabilities to setup default tabs in "admin center" settings for a new Team creation. Where default tabs could be setup by AD groups or users or channels within a team.
    Currently having a wiki tab by default is annoying and useless feature.
