  1. Bring back the title/navigation/breadcrumb

    Teams got rid of the navigation/breadcrumb path at the top of each team and it's super annoying. Now you don't know what team you're in you just see the "General" channel, and it also makes it difficult to switch channels within a team. Can you bring that original feature back please?

  2. Have a record feedback (screen record) option in assignments

    Creating a screen record option in feedback would allow for screencast feedback to be given to students which is shown to have increased engagement and learning opportunities over plain text feedback. This would also increase the inclusivity through captioning of the verbal aspect of the feedback, to add to the visual and textual overview.

  3. Mimic IM pop-ups to Skype

    Teams should copy the feature from skype where the the first instant message pops-up on your window indicating some one has messaged you and then it justs blinks on the skype icon for all further messages. Teams opens and displays all the messages in the pop ups and if you have someone at your desk the entire chat can be read.

    Idea : Only for the first instance of a new chat head teams should give a pop up and for everything else just flash on the teams icon. Also should not display the message in the pop up.

    when…

  4. Unprivate private channels

    I would like to see the option to make private channels open to everyone like a normal channel.
    This way if a certain project is rounded up and everyone can have acces I don't need to add everyone to a currently private channel, but I could make it available to the whole team.

  5. add a "Get link to channel" to private channels

    I would like to get a way to get a link to private channel in same way as public channels. This is used in documentation, emails, ... to share direct access to the correct location.

  6. Remove the limit for the number of channels in a team

    Remove the limit on the number of channels in a team. There may be limited reasons this feature would be useful, but being limited to a number of Channels in a Team is limiting for a limited number of users who may be in the hundreds of thousands or millions or even a billion users wanting this unlimited feature.

  7. Improve reply and conversation layout

    There is an issue where people go to reply to the most recent conversation, but instead of hitting "Reply" and then typing their message, they will just click on the text box at the bottom which starts a new conversation. Then the newly created message will get lost because new replies will hide it in the feed.

    I suggest that you move the "Start a new conversation" text box to the top of the screen rather than at the bottom. Also, I don't think it would hurt to add a small text box next to the "Reply" button. I think…

  8. Prevent Team deletion by mistake

    We currently face often the issue that some team-owners try to leave a team. But for reasons i don't know they sometimes flip from leave team to delete team. And then they tend to not read the following Dialoge and set the checkmark and click delete. Then the Team is gone…

    What i have in mind is to ask the user, like in MMORPGs, to write the Team name again manually in a Textbox before enabling the deletion Button. If they mean it to delete the team then it is ok.

    If they have flipped buttons they will then read…

  9. Mulighet for deltakere å peke på delt skjerm

    Ved deling av skjerm bør deltakere kunne gis mulighet til å "peke" på skjermen, som alle ser - så det er lett å fokusere på hva man prater om.

  10. Ability to extract from one mailbox without duplication in content search

    The content search function requires a function to extract from one mailbox without duplication.
    At the moment, it reflects duplicate results, making it difficult and inconvenient to search through large amounts of data.

  11. Sorting Team members

    A small, but very useful improvement would be: To be able to sort the Members of a Team under "Manage team" menu, by Status, Name, Title, Location, Role, etc.

  12. Conversation Retention in Private Channels

    Private Channels do not inherit the retention rules from the Team. So companies that rely on the conversation retention as a form of compliance don't have that retention when private channels are created. The retention rules do not apply to the private channel.

  13. Hub Teams - Similar to Sharepoint Hub Sites

    Hub Teams = Sharepoint Hub site,
    Teams = Sharepoint Site

    Hub Teams, can be new feature that can add existing channels of regular teams.

    Also, Hub Teams can be used to setup Hub Sites. Similar to creating and mapping sharepoint site and groups when a MS Teams is created.

  15. Enable "content search" and "audit log" to be output automatically

    At present, it is only possible to acquire a log arbitrarily, but for example, when a period is set and the log is automatically output, it is easy to audit.
    It also leads to a reduction in labor.

  17. Copying text is pants

    Currently trying to select text to copy in an indidual message is almost impossible.

    When copying, it either overlays the Save and Like icons or copies the text below as well.

    We're having to past text into word docs to get the trimmed data we need

  20. New Team with a new Outlook group automatically

    Before, when I created a new team, the group in Outlook was automatically created and I could manage Planner tasks from Outlook itself.
    Now I create the team but I don't see the group in Outlook!!!
    Microsoft support has not been able to solve the problem!
