  1. Add External members on the fly in a meeting

    On a meeting, cannot add an external member, the only option is to copy the meeting link and paste on other application.

  3. Create a status for chat threads

    In the "Teams" channels, we have a group of 4 main people. We often get multiple conversations going at the same time. One person habitually doesn't respond, and I forget I had an outstanding question until the bug comes back to *******. It would be helpful if individual chat threads within channels had a status, with a simple list of options like: "Open" and "Closed". Maybe another one like "Waiting on response from @personname". Then to build on that, it would be helpful to better arrange all the open conversation topics, kind of like a project management system, which Teams…

  4. Teams mobile app

    On the Team mobile app there is no function to call the user on their mobile device directly. This feature existed in Skype for Business. Can this feature be added?

  6. When creating a Team from a template, copy over tabs (including links), the Files tab file/folder structure, and ability to copy lists

    Take the current template functionality a step further by allowing the user to copy tabs that also setup the links/products they point to, allow files and folder structures from the files tab to copy over, and also allow the user to pick and choose other content from the SharePoint Team site like lists, doc libraries, etc. A use case our ours is having a Team setup to solely act as a template Team for Projects Managers to copy from so that they can have a standard setup for all projects.

  7. Tabs in Teams

    Please make finally possible to change default tabs. 'Conversations' tab opens by default, while users should be able to decide which tab should be opening when the Team is accessed. For example, our need is to have the 'Files' tab opened by default because our company's primary use of Teams is document management. Anyway, the Conversations tabs is a messy place because it also displays logs of system changes and mixes with users conversations.

  8. Edit Teams in the app

    We need the ability, as a Team ‘Owner’ to edit all content within the mobile apps. Currently you can only edit the channel names. It would be great if you could edit tabs, files etc. too.

  10. Integrate Channels from one team into one Dashboard channel for that Team

    If your team has 50 projects and those projects have 10 standard data points across each project, it would be great if when you are setting up a channel, you could identify those data points and assign them to the main dashboard to autofill. For example, every project is its own channel under one Team and it has a name, project code, project owner, etc...and you may want a dashboard that collects all of the Project Names, codes, and data points in one list.

  11. Read / Unread Conversations, Files & Wiki items

    Next to each Team name show the number of unread pieces of information.
    Next to each Channel name show the number of Unread items.
    Within a channel in each tab (conversation, files, wiki and more) :
    1. show the number of unread items
    2. allow to filter on unread items only

  12. Tracking changes in Microsoft Teams

    It's a real bummer to not be able to track changes when files are edited in MS teams. I am a teacher and I think this feature is so important for me to give students feedback (my edits) on the work they submitted.

    Hope to see this feature soon!

  13. Extend the Size of a Post in a Channel

    I cant tell you how often I attempt to share a email thread or a large blog in TEAMS and have the "You'll need to shorten your message to send it." message appear, requiring me to hack out most URLs and email addresses. Becomes very unusable for deep technical posts.

  14. Allow a SharePoint Team Site to be viewed on the MS Teams Desktop Application

    We have created a Team Site on share point and would like users from our organization to be able to view the team site from the Microsoft Teams application on the desktop. This would allow our users to use the Team Site without having to log on via a browser.

  16. Make a progressive web app for teams

  17. Use of a laser pointer in screen share

    Having the use of a laser pointer in screenshare within Teams, and the ability to switch between a laser pointer, normal arrow and drawing pen would be an extremely useful addition.

  18. Deselecting file by clicking on background

    It would be great if in the "Files" tab in Teams client (Windows app), clicking on the background would deselect the active file.
    You need to have no file selected to use the "New Object' button. This would help a lot and be intuitive.
    Currently you need to reload the page to do that. I'm not sure if that's a bug or just no one though to do it this way.

  19. Assign team work inside class

    Add an ability to submit assignments in teams. Case:
    A class of students performs an experiment in small groups and each and every group needs to submit a common report. All members of the same group work on a single Word report. All members of the group should be able to see the common grade, comments etc.
    In my view, there is a need to have a possibility to create subgroups in Teams (or just in assignment module) and allow submission of assignments in subgroups.

  20. Hide Admin Tasks from Conversations Tab

    Would be great to see the Conversations tab as just 'Conversations' and not show all of the Admin pieces performed in the Team. I think only users who are 'Owners' should be able to see all of the admin changes to a team, as to 'Members' it just looks messy. Also why not put any 'changes' into an 'Admin' tab or something like that

    Would be great to have also be able to 'pin to the top' a conversation - such as a 'Welcome' message that everyone can see, particularly those who join late to a Team.

    I've created a…
