  1. Outlook Add-In

    It would be nice to have a Teams Outlook add-in (like Evernote add-in) in order to save an e-mail into a chosen channel.
    This would bring a rastreability of certain issue/case/project

  4. links in teams

    Within the Teams Files area, allow links to documents stored elsewhere (especially in SharePoint) to be added, just as we can add links to documents within standard SharePoint libraries

  5. Allow One Channel to Subscribe to Another Channel in a Different Team

    At my office (a medium sized Architecture and ID Office) we have about a dozen Teams for real life committees that develop office wide best practices. Right now the only way to find out new news is to get the committee to post to our Office Wide Team, in their committees channel. This allows non committee members to get updates on the work they are doing. If I (as an admin) could simply SUBSCRIBE my Office Wide Channel to a designated Channel within the Committee Team, the whole staff could stay updated on committee goings on without having to join…

  9. Adjustable column width for "Favorites" Side Bar

    On the Teams desktop app, there is a side bar column that shows all of your Favorites. This is a fairly wide column that takes up a lot of space on the screen and is not adjustable. Would be great to have flexibility to adjust the column width to open up screen space for teams content. On my app, the favorites column is 2-3x wider than it should be. Thanks!

  10. Enable edit of Office template files (.potx,.xltx,.dotx) in Teams Files

    Currently users are unable to edit Office template files (.potx,.xltx,.dotx) in Teams Files. For these format files, if modification is needed, users need to download the files from Teams, modify the content, then upload the file again to Teams Files.

    Current workaround is user can select the file then choose "Open in SharePoint", then modify the file in SharePoint. But this introduces additional work for users.

    We would like to have this feature, enable edit of Office template files (.potx, .xltx, .dotx) in Teams Channel directly like other normal Office files (.pptx, .xlsx, .docx).

  11. Who has viewed a channel message

    Our IT department is testing out Teams but noticed a feature that doesn't exist (or that we could find) that exists on other messaging platforms. having the ability to see who viewed a message in a channel.

    This feature becomes extremely important when you have teams with a lot of users in a channel and not everyone has to reply because it is more used as live status information and just need to make sure that your team is staying engaged and viewing the messages.

    Teams offers a lot of great features, but this one feature is key and extremely…

  14. Modify channels such that the primary conversation happens directly within the channel

    I worked out one of the reasons I dislike Microsoft Teams.

    Teams conversation workflow is inverted from Slack's and I feel that Teams is, oddly enough, anti-team building.

    Here's what I mean. In a slack channel, there is a single main chat thread. Everyone in the channel contributes to that main thread. Separate conversations can spin off (via threads) if need be but for the most part, everyone contributes to a single thread.

    In Teams every new entry in the main channel is a start to a new conversation, a new thread. To reply to a specific conversation you don't…

  15. increase favorite chats or allow persistent chat settings

    Either allow increase of favorite chats above 15 or allow to make chats persistent. I am seeing chats disappear from search after a certain amount of time. Some chats i would like to keep open or at least searchable for a longer period. I see favorite chats are persistent but limited to 15 favorites.

    Allow Using Existing SharePoint Team Site/Notebook - Just Makes Sense

    The Bot responded:
    Can I move content from my existing OneNote and SharePoint sites to Microsoft Teams?
    Unfortunately, you can't move content from an existing OneNote or SharePoint site to Microsoft Teams right now.

  17. Hide teams toolbar

    We would like to hide the teams toolbar that stays in the left of the client. It takes up a lot of space in the view that could be used to improve the navigation in the team.

  18. Expand only new comments in a thread

    We often have threads that get fairly long, 40+ replies. When this happens, it would be nice to be able to only expand the comments section to show the new comments.

    So say you have 56 replies to a thread, and while you are working on something else 7 new replies get added. If when you return to the thread it is collapsed to only show the most recent comment, you only have the option to expand to show all replies. This means that you have to scroll through the 56 old replies that you have already read in order…

  20. Member Permissions for Channels

    Request #1: Currently, as shown in that attachment, permissions can only be changed for the general channel. Allow these settings to be changed for each channel.

    Request #2: Add an addition option where "Only owners can start a new conversation, but anyone can reply". Example use: Only a manager could post an announcement, but everyone could reply to that comment.
