  1. Default Tab

    Now I understand that there are already some feedback items on this. Example:
    https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/33396739-default-tab-for-channels-not-conversation

    However, I think this may be a good compromise. When you right-click a tab in a channel, the context menu should have a "Set default tab" option. This allows the user to have some control of their experience and how they work.

  2. Managing member editing rights

    Looking into the idea to be able to pick and choose who can edit a particular document.

    For example having a powerpoint live document on teams - which only 2 members have the rights to edit and add too but all memebrs can see the live updates.

  4. Microsoft Flow Action to Create Team

    Would be nice to have an Action in Microsoft Flow to Create a Team. Currently only the 'create channel' is available.

  5. Allow administrators to view complete list of Teams

    As an O365 Global Admin, I should be able to see all Teams that exist. I can go into Groups management and view all O365 Groups, but there is no way to see how they were created and if they are associated with Teams, Yammer Groups, etc. This should be part of a management tool available to administrators.

  6. Allow non-Office files for Assignment hand-in

    When using Teams for a class with Assignments, the teacher can specify what students should hand-in, but non-Office files can not be used.
    In this particular case at least one assignment requires code as the hand-in, which is not possible whether it is .txt, .m, .c or whatever the type, unless it's an Office file.

  8. Being able to customize channels per team.

    Being able to customize the channels. Like the general channel doesnt need to be the default channel upon creation of teams. Setting another channel as default would be a great add. It will also be great if we can customize or manage the team members within a channel. Not everyone on a team needs to be on a certain channel so its really a great add for filtering messages and communications without creating a lot of group and user clutter.

  9. Chat Room Participant Limit and Vote to Kick Feature

    As far as I understood it is hard to assign someone as a Chat Room owner and that is why we cannot kick people out of the chat room. But if you add a feature like voting to kick people out that issue will be sorted. Also please try to increase the participant number in the chat rooms. 20 people limit is a huge issue for some cases, esp when we have no privacy in the Team tab.

  10. Tab colors, activity vs chats

    When you have active chat vs hover chat, the hover color is dark and active chat is light. I’ve sent messages to wrong chat all the time if cursor lands on wrong chat. Also, you can’t tell easily under Activities area if a person is sending you a chat or is posting to a channel. Often replied to a channel thinking it’s only to single person, making me hesitate to use Activities area.

  11. Display the description of the team and channels

    Every team and channel has a description that can be entered, yet there doesn't seem to be any way to see that description unless you can edit. How about making the description visible under the title in the right window? Maybe even a setting that allows me to make descriptions visible or not (on/off switch).

  12. hard delete deleted channels

    is there any way of "hard" deleting, deleted channels?
    i've did some testing regarding the 200 channel limit, now i can't create new channels, as still the limit is reached because the test channels are still under deleted channels….

  14. Keep the Active Web Page sessions in the Channel Guides.

    The feature of adding a web page to Guides is very practical and we use a lot however, when you add any web page and navigate within a certain web page and navigate in other guides or channels and return to that webpage the same and reloaded or be it and reset. This is very inconvenient because it ends up resetting the logins and losing the position of where you were navigating within this page. There should be an improvement in Micosoft Teams being able to keep this session active and not causing resets or page reloads.

  15. Remember swops to other parts in Teams

    In Teams: it would be great if Teams remembers a swop to another tab (chat, notebook, other Team)
    E.g. If you're working in a notebook and want to go to a chat to give a quick reply and after that you want to go back to your notebook, you have to start all over again to find the part you were working in.

  16. Enable to see which public teams exist

    When clicking on the Join a team icon, I get an empty page with a small search window on the right. Now I need to guess which teams exist and search for them.
    Why not show ALL public teams, so I can simply decide which teams I want to join?

  17. Allow users to invite others to channel

    Similar to the slack command /invite, allow users of a channel to invite other users to a channel. In Teams nomenclature, that means allowing others to favorite a channel for you. Or at the very least, allow admins/moderators to do this.

    Many users can't be bothered to understand or know which channels they might be interested in. The whole community and "virtually working in the same room" use model relies on the knowledge of one person pulling another person in who may be interested in a topic.

  20. Assignment per channel

    Is it possible to make an assignment per channel. Instead of make an assignment on the General channel.
    We want to use a team as class. The channels are the subjects and in each "subject channel" we want to make an seperate subject assignment
