  2. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Make a progressive web app for teams

    Make a progressive web app (that also works in Chrome on Android). The existing app now requires more components installed that can wipe my device (no go for me)

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  13. Search Users with mentions: I want to character searching.

    The mentions search a user used forward match. But, I want to word search using the mentions.
    ex) Username: search.user@test.com
    >> "@sea" is find it! But, "@user" or "@*user" etc... is not find.

  14. Start in chat when opening app

    If would be nice if there was a setting in Teams to open in the Chat each time. It always opens in Activities and I switch to chats.

  15. Allow meeting organizer access to permanently mute all participants for that meeting. The conference would them be a broadcast.

    The "problem" now is that everyone can be muted, but they can un-mute themselves. I want the option to not allow them to un-mute themselves.

  16. Make chat interface cleaner

    The Conversation window is full of wasted space. I need it to be flattened, with consistent display of time, username, and text all left-aligned. The 'conversation bubbles' are distracting and wasteful of space. Highlighting my own text is distracting from the actual information I care about, which is the text from whoever I'm chatting with. Slack does it great, with a different color for each user name.

  18. Keep people in the loop with Loops

    Since we have been using Teams in our organisation (100+ people) since release we have grown into needing some form of group based chat that isn't via channels. The group Chats work ok but have limitations (newly invited users can't see history) and are missing features (Can't remove other users from a group chat).

    Space here for Loops!

    User created, administrated and deleted
    Potential to integrate with the lifecycle of the workitem
    Loops will be it's own custom channel made on the fly.
    Will will be administrated by a user or org administrators
    Will be able to have intergrations/automations
    History…

  19. This is missing


    1. A tick for sent

    2. 2 ticks for received

    3. Change in colour of ticks when read

    4. Reply

    5. Forward

    Sorry but without these most basic of basic features it sucks badly.
