  1. Raodmap for Teams in GCC tenants

    I'd like to see a separate roadmap for Teams specifically for tenants in the government cloud. Teams was activate for GCC in July but its extremely handicapped. Ex. adding a tab to a channel the only options are a SharePoint Document library link, Excel, PowerPoint and Word.

  3. Allow adding Guest to specific Channels

    allow adding Guest only to specific Channels within a team. example, you may have an outside vendor that may need to collaborate on a team but should not have access or visibility to the other channels/files/tabs etc.

  4. Support for channel-specific access/privacy settings

    Allowing for channel-specific user access and privacy settings. e.g. A user may be able to edit files in the General Channel but cannot edit files in the "Project A" Channel of a team. This allows project managers and analysts to share outputs and important business documents with all stakeholders without running the risk of data loss/damage at the hands of someone who should not be modifying them.

  6. Allow team members from other organizations outside of my own to be added

    We need to find a way to allow new team members from outside our organization to be added to our teams. This is an essential function of developing collaborative, multi-agency, teams and working groups and should not oblige team members to be Microsoft users. There are too many organizations using other platforms, and the ability to network, chat, and share collaboratively across platforms is essential to successful collaboration.

  8. Add multiple usergroups to a team

    Now it is only possible to add one single usergroup (from Active Directory) at a time to a team in order to add members. For the second (and third...) group you have to go to the team page and then add members again.
    Improvement would be to be able to add multiple usergroups in one go.

  9. planner tab broke 8-27-2018

    We have a tab in our team's channels to Planner. This has worked up until this morning at this point the tab no longer loads. If we remove and readd the tab (within the teams app) it doesn't load up the choices to pick the planner (see screenshot). The tab works fine in the team's web gui. Just the app is broke this morning.

  11. Allow anyone to remove a person from chat.

    Allow removal of a person from a chat. Currently the only way for someone to be removed from a chat is if that person chooses to leave the chat.

  12. Allow moving channel from one team to another

    As we add more teams and channels in the organization, there is a need to reorganize the channels. For example, I may want to move a team called PR to a larger Marketing Team.

  13. clear channel

    Team channels can get full of distracting content. There should be a /clear command that hides all previous messages just for the current user.

    Switching beween channels should unhide the messages (clicking to open a different channel and then returning to the cleared channel would show all of the messages again)

  16. Ability to move conversations

    It should be possible (for team admins) to move conversations from one channel to another or into another conversation (i.e. convert a stand-alone conversation into a reply to another conversation).

  17. Black Screen in Teams

    Teams in an RDS environment shows a black screen on office documents when editing in Teams. Clearing the teams folders solves it only once, until next log on.

  18. grouping

    Ability to organise joined teams in groups or sub headings. At the moment the only option is to unfavourite a team but this hides it out of site.

    An example of a structure would be all teams related to priority projects in one group, and all teams related to non priority projects in another group.

    Currently I am a member of about 50+ 'teams' for various tasks and projects, gets quite confusing. By grouping them I can keep track a bit easier on teams which are managing critical projects.

  19. Join by Quiz/Test

    We would like to test people to be worthy to join a channel, so it would be great to have 2 „modes“ to join a channel.

    - Pass a Test
    — Have a few questions that a person needs to answer correctly (multiple choice), and only after getting a certain percentage right, he should automatically be admitted to a channel

    — Have people answer a survey first and get automatically admitted after filling it out

  20. Simplify bot proactive messages send-out into Teams

    Sending proactive messages into Microsoft Teams from a bot is too difficult. Too many attributes required: tenant id, service url, channel id (always msteams). There is no way to determine a user address without having to store this on first interaction with the bot. With C# you must perform extra authentication steps that are not documented.
