  1. In a 1 on 1 chat allow chat history to be shared when adding a new user

    Often times I am chatting with an individual 1 on 1 (as in not a group chat) and I need to pull someone else in. I add them but there is no option to share chat history. Please allow a feature to add a selected amount of chat history.The only way to do that now is either 1. Know you need a group ahead of time, or 2. copy and paste the history you need into the newly formed group when you add the other person.

  2. Actual Participant list instead of invited list

    There must be a way to capture Teams' meetings' actual attendance list. Currently all the invited participants reflect as 'joined teams meeting' when it isn't actually so.

    This would be very useful when we conduct online training sessions for participants across geographical locations.

  3. Personal Outlook Calendar in Teams

    My personal Outlook calendar meetings are color coded. When I view my calendar in Teams, they're not. I'd like to the colors to carry over into Teams so I maintain the visual reference.

  5. Disable Deleting channels

    Disable Deleting channels for all teams.

    As a global admin I want to prevent all members in my organization from deleting channels without being the owner of the team.

    At a minimum, the channel deletion permission should default to off when the team is created. All permissions should default to not enabled on team creation instead of having some of them on.

  6. Allow "display text" for Hyperlinks

    Provide the ability to edit the description for hyperlink like in other Microsoft products. Currently if you past a hyperlink to a chat or in a Wiki it show the full path, which is clunky and looks unprofessional.

  7. Show all unread messages in a single view, like Slack "Unread" folder

    I find it very complicated to see all unread messages in all teams. The Teams/Channels are marked in bold, but are scattered in the teams list.
    Especially when you are in many teams (30+), there is no good overview over all unread messages.

    A dedicated place (like Activity) showing all unread messages (teams and chats) would be nice, like the "Unread" functionality in Slack.

    Unread messages should contain all teams or just teams/channels you follow (maybe editable in settings or like activity filter).

  10. Define What app to open with when you open a document in teams

    We have found some documents work better in the desktop apps than in the online version. Good example Excel and Onenote.

    As a team owner have a way to flag a document where it always wants to open in Desktop excel.

  11. Translation feature for guests

    Hello, i find it rather strange that Guest members of a Team are not able to benefit from the translation feature. Is there any plan to change this strange behavior?

  12. Ability to disable How was the call quality request after each call

    Each time we finish a call we are asked to rate the quality. After a few calls during one day it's very annoying and this is like that every single working day. Can you imagine ?

  13. Order Teams

    Please add a button that allows you to view Teams in alphabetical order. I know teams can be dragged into order but this is tedious and when teams get hidden and you unhide them again they are no longer in order so a button to make this view possible and the ability to have this as a default view would be brilliant.

  18. Ability to browse folder links on desktop clients

    If you copy a folder link to Outlook and browse it, the Teams Web client will start instead of the Teams desktop client.
    Excel files and so on are referenced on the desktop client when referenced from a link.
    Therefore, the function to refer to the folder with the desktop client is also required.

  19. Public Channels

    Public channels will provide an outbound communication window for a team to engage with everyone in their organization.  These channels are accessible to everyone within the org, without the need to join.

    For instance, we may have a team that is private and deals with network issues. They may want a public channel where they can provide updates to existing issues or answer questions users may have. Otherwise, you may end up with two teams in this instance: a private network team and a public network team.

  20. Please improve the search feature to make words in Announcements header searchable

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    アナウンスの見出しを検索でヒットするよう改善してほしい
    Please improve the search feature to make words in Announcements header searchable


    ■Description(内容):
    アナウンス機能で​投稿した際、見出しの文字列は検索結果にヒットしません。
    (サブヘッドは検索対象)
    アナウンスを利用して大事な情報を配信することが多いので、ユーザーが後で検索できるようアナウンスの見出しも検索の対象としてほしい。
    When the Announcements feature is used to make a post, words in the header will not be used in searching nor appear in search results, but subheaders are used.
    We use Announcements quite frequently to send out important information, so we hope that words in the header can be used for searching in order to make it possible for users to do a search later.
