  1. print preview in Teams

    Provide a function in Word when run inside Teams to view/edit in Print Layout mode like the desktop version. Users do not see the desired layout in Teams, so they edit it to fix it, but what really happens is it messes up the format, but that isn't visible until you print or view in the desktop app. WYSIWYG editing is a basic function of a modern word processor, it should be supported by Word when run in Teams.

  2. Improved notifications

    I often miss the notification that I have received a IM in MS-Teams. Please add an option (to teams or to windows) such that, if that options is enabled, it is impossible to miss a notification. Something like the notification fills all the screens and has to be dismissed in order to continue work.

  3. Hide Teams Chat Preview Line

    Please provide the option to "hide" the preview line in the Recent Chats list. We have users who would like to keep conversations confidential and the preview is causing concern

  4. Provide a "homepage" that teams opens up to that doesn't show any of your chats

    Just something to pull up in teams so people cannot see what you are talking about with other people. Whether it just shows your "favorites" or recents is fine. I don't know if you'd want to pull in calendar events to say what's happening today, and have a blurb on the weather but mainly I'd just want a screen that doesn't show what I am saying to other people. Currently I just leave my recent files up

  6. Set order folders in Teams

    I work within Teams within a channel with various folders. I would like to receive these folders in alphabetical order. That works by clicking on name, but I have to do it again each time. Would be nice if I could fix that or mark folders with favorites so that they remain at the top.

  8. Policy for Requesting Approval/Decline from each active member of the Team meeting (determines if meeting can be recorded)

    In some cases, when needing to record a meeting, the meeting owner normally requests approval from all participants before starting the recording, as part of some sort of policy.

    It would be great to have a policy setting, where by when initiating a recording of a meeting, to send out a request for approval / decline to all active participants (maybe using Bot Chat dialog) (or request approve / decline when a new members joins) and then track / record this with the meeting.

    If all members accept, then recording can comence. Or if a new member joins a meeting…

    ■Title(件名):
    プライベート チャネルでのレコーディング機能について
    Recording feature for private channels


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams において会議の際後からも確認できるよう、毎回レコーディングを実施しています。
    しかしながら、同じチームでもチャネルの作成時、プライベートにすると現時点ではレコーディングが行えません。
    機能の拡張を要望します。
    We perform recording everytime there is a meeting on Microsoft Teams so that we can check the content afterwards.
    However, currently if a channel is created and made private recording cannot be performed even for the same team.
    Please improve on this to make recording possible for private channels as well.

  10. Please improve the search feature to make words in Announcements header searchable

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    アナウンスの見出しを検索でヒットするよう改善してほしい
    Please improve the search feature to make words in Announcements header searchable


    ■Description(内容):
    アナウンス機能で​投稿した際、見出しの文字列は検索結果にヒットしません。
    (サブヘッドは検索対象)
    アナウンスを利用して大事な情報を配信することが多いので、ユーザーが後で検索できるようアナウンスの見出しも検索の対象としてほしい。
    When the Announcements feature is used to make a post, words in the header will not be used in searching nor appear in search results, but subheaders are used.
    We use Announcements quite frequently to send out important information, so we hope that words in the header can be used for searching in order to make it possible for users to do a search later.

  11. Ability to create personalized folders to keep relevant Teams posts like emails in Outlook

    Ability to create personalized folders to keep relevant Teams posts like emails in Outlook. Flat list of favorites doesn’t help organize important stuffs.

  12. Imported files into a Team - After import, the file modified date should be the date the file was modified before import into the Team

    When a file(s) is currently imported into a Team or Channel, the last modified date shown is the Teams import date, not the modified date before it was imported. The modified date stamp immediately after import should be the last modified date prior to import. Once the file is edited/saved in Teams, it should then change to that modified date.

  13. Standard Teams sites

    We use Teams as a display platform for our Projects. Each site is used as a different project. As the number of projects is growing, we need to create some standardization.

    The idea is to have a Template team site, with all template documents imbibed in it (Word, excel, pdf, smartsheets, etc) so when someone creates a new site all these templates would be already there.

    Today when you copy an existing team site to create a new one, just the name of the tabs keeps the same (and we need the content as well).

  14. I want a sidepane that shows the entire thread expanded when I click on Team chat that has a thread, just like Slack does

    I love threads in Teams, but the way they are collapsed and sometimes take multiple expansions and sometimes that collapses other parts (if a really long thread) is really hard to work with. I'd like to be able to just click on the parent message and have the entire thread shown expanded already in a side pane, just like slack does.

  15. New Conversation should not always be visible

    Conversations in Teams is difficult to manage. Everyone expects them to work like Instant Messaging. Like Chats.

    So you end up with conversations happening all over the place.

    To rectify this, I have tried to create template conversations so that when you go into one, you've already seen the correct formatting.

    Yet, without a doubt, someone replies to the Running Thread by creating a new conversation instead of replying to the already existing one.

    You need the "new conversation" field to NOT be visible. It should just be a plus button on the right hand side, and the REPLY should…

  16. Download Kanban Cards within MS Team (desktop application)

    Within MS Planner, it is only the possible to download Kanban Cards in the online view of the Planner – Ideally, this functionality should be available in the Teams desktop app itself.

  19. give us a settings for chat so we can be better orgainized and notified better.

    We need a settings button to be able to change these setting in chat so we are notified by more than a check of next to an Icon we don't see if the window is closed. It could also provide us better ability to Organize messages as we need to see them, or delete them.
