  2. Ability to lock a conversation inside channels

    Need ability to lock a conversation, just like one would lock a forum thread. Some users continue to tack onto an existing conversation thread when they should start a new thread, pinging all involved. I could see these permissions being delegated to conversation starter/owner, and channel owners.

  3. Most recent conversations/replies on top.

    I'd like most recent conversations/replies on top. Scrolling to the bottom to see the newest replies is a terrible experience.

  4. Expand the calendar capabilities

    For one, it would be nice to expand the calendar to a full page, to view the entire month and future month by month.
    In addition, it would be great to sync the calender's with a third party OS. Transparency with invites to a meeting in the calendar view, by that, I mean see who has/hasn't responded to the request.

  5. Forward mail and/or answer via mail to a existing thread

    Sometimes it is good to forward a mail or answer via mail to a thread in a channel.

    My suggestion is, please create a "Reply via email" function/button, if i click on this, a Mail to the Channel email Adress and a special Subject Line are open and i can mail to the existing thread.
    Possible is also a other way.

  6. Delete external Mail in channel

    If a Teams-User forward a Mail to a channel, he can delete the Mail.
    If a external (not Teams-User) Mail are at the Chanel it is not possible to delete this Mail.

    My suggestion: make external Mail deletable from Channel Owner.

  7. Option to move/copy a reply to another or new conversation

    Option to move/copy a reply to another conversation, best via a kind of drag and drop.

    Often replies get posted as new conversations or a reply is actually better to be a new conversation.

  8. show local time with timezone in profile card user

    Show local time with timezone in profile card user what would be great acting with an international team. My team members are spread around the globe and it is handy to see quickly what the local time is in the place they are hanging out at that moment for the choice of seeking direct or indirect contact.

  9. Export your conversations to a document.

    it would nice to have the feature to export your conversation to a document such as a word document or excel or to a file alike. this would be Handy if you need to send out the conversations to someone who you would not normally have apart of your team. this would save time and make it more user friendly. Also it will give the opportunity to store the conversation easily in a nother file

  10. Task Management

    Allow users to create, assign, and manage tasks within Teams. As of now, you must redirect to an external webpage to manage tasks. This reduces the effectiveness of using teams. This add-on would be great!

  12. Team Conversations need to have an alert, flash or some other notification that there is new information in the Team chat

    We have many teams and having an alert to notify you that there is an active conversation in process would be great!

  13. Teams VOIP

    Teams works very well inside our hospital and it needs to serve the same roles when I'm not at work. I know that you are moving to Teams to serve the roles that Skype does now and I hope that I'll be able to use Teams to interact with people that are not part of my work team. Contact me if I can help.

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    You can already do this! If you want to call a mobile phone or any number from Teams, just click the little phone labeled “Calls” then click the button that says “Dial a number.”

    Note this is only available for certain licenses such as E3 with enterprise voice add-on and E5. You also need to have been given a calling plan by your administrator.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
    Suphatra

  14. Scroll screen when I move a Planner card between buckets

    Scroll screen when I move a Planner card between buckets like trello. I have 4 buckets and I cannot drag a card for the left most column to the right most column.

  16. Per Channel, I'd just like it to remember where I left off.

    I like how Teams added a line for last read position, now start the scroll from there, or at least have it as an option.

    I go to a channel that gets 100s of messages a day. I can't always find where the last read message is located. I would like it to start at the last read location.

  17. Incorporate some kind of photo viewer in Teams files tab.

    Right now when you click on a Photo in the Teams "files" tab it opens up in a browser window and there is no way to flip through photos quickly. It would be good if Teams had a photo viewer built in so that you could flip through photos in the files tab.

  18. Option: Organise channel files by metadata instead of subfolder

    Currently creation of a Channel causes creation of a subfolder in the Group Document Library. Please provide the option to create a 'Channel' column instead, which identifies the channel to which a file relates. Then the library can be interrogated more flexibly.

  19. Search and View All Teams

    Please allow users to VIEW all teams available. If public they can join. If private they can ask to join and the owner can allow or not.

    Having to click on ADD TEAM and search for teams is not intuitive...plus IT DOESN'T WORK. This is critical for us.

    Also using the mini search bar doesn't allow us to see all teams...i have to guess what the name is
