  1. Teams messages appear in chat

    I spend most of my time in chat view. I would love to see teams messages appear in the chat view. Like Whatsapp groups.

    You don't have a separate tab for whats app groups, just have it all in one feed.

  2. A feature to hide suggestions of public teams

    I would like you to implement a feature to hide suggestions of public teams from the Join a team page. I want an exact match of the preferred team to join when searching public teams in the search box.

  3. Remove user from Channel Conversation

    A user should be able to remove himself from a channel conversation in which he was mentioned but no longer needs to be notified about.

    Additionally, it should be possible for someone in the channel conversation to remove a user from the channel conversation.

  4. Visual organization

    Make it more visually organized. I want to be able to organize work projects separately on cards or something categorical.

  5. Org Wide Team Templates without having to be a Member

    We need a way to create a Org Wide Template that any user can create a new Team from, without having to grant them access to that Template Team.

    Currently you have to be a member of the Team you want to use as a Template. This makes it difficult to help standardize Teams on certain items such as projects. Even if we were able to create a project team template and add all users in the organization, its a very bad experience for users to have template projects listed in their Teams list (even if hidden). Templates shouldn't show…

  6. Enable camera to share picture with a Team (currently only to a Chat)

    Currently the camera of an Android mobile can share a picture with a Chat, but not with a Team.

    Notably from a Team you can currently get a picture from the camera, thus circumventing the limitation.

  7. Simplify Shifts


    1. When copying shifts, copy & paste the lunch break as well

    2. Option to set all lunches or breaks for a specific amount of time (hour, 30 minutes etc.)

    3. Option to set up a specific amount of time for a break or lunch without setting a time of day to take the break or lunch

    4. Set up a recurring schedule for some employees

    5. Let staff see the entire staff's schedule without having to look at each person's in the app

    6. Option for administrator to create an employee's availability.

  8. copy email

    When you copy the email address to a channel provide the option to copy just the naked email address or the full email address currently provided.

    There are times that I want to share an article I read with a channel but have to clean up the email address I copied to remove all of the extra information so that I have just the address.

  9. Chat - make Contacts a "pinnable" item so we can more easily view the status of our colleagues.

    In Chat - make Contacts a "pinnable" item so we can more easily view the status of our colleagues, withOUT leaving the Teams page we are currently on or when Calls ring. When we replaced Skype with Teams we lost this valuable capability.

  10. I want a shared calendar for tracking team leaves in teams

    In my team, there are 15+ people. We want to have one calendar in which everyone can put their leave plans and it will be visible for the rest of the team members.

  11. Need to support external clients for all existing features of Skype for Business

    If Teams is to replace Skype for Business it has to support external users. We use this feature extensively. We need to collaborate with partners which are OUTSIDE our company domain. We need an easy way to add "teams" that adds outside users (in our case from partners) and provide all the features that Skype Business did like phone calls, IM, Conferencing etc. I could not find an easy way (or at all) to do this. If that isn't provided we would have to skip Teams (old Skype) all together and get another vendor to solve this business need.

  15. Increase filtering options under My Activity

    Under Feeds > My Activity, it would be helpful to group the activities by channels. This way users can easily navigate to their activity within each instead of having to scroll through the unfiltered list of every action.

  16. Integrate different teams from different domains in one view

    I would love to have all my teams from the two domains I work with on one view. Whether I have guest access or separate account. It would be great to have this on the one screen without having to switch.

  17. contacts

    I have a lot of Contacts that have Company Name & phone number only. I see (in Calls|Contacts) Blank Name, Blank Title & phone number listed only, so I cannot tell what the phone number belongs to. Search will not return anything, since I am typing in the Company name. Someone posted that they see a heading for Company, but I do not (Teams version: 1.2.00.8864 (64-bit) for Windows).

  18. Distort the entire team session via idle time out or manually. This will help keep chats secure from prying eyes.

  20. Control what admin activities show notifications

    As an admin we have the ability to set some Teams that members are able to create and manage channels and others that they are not able to.

    We are NOT able to control what activities in a Team are posted to the General Channel. As such, I am having users who are seeing when I create a new channel and delete old ones. This is not always desired though as in situations where the creation is managed, they can see the EXACT user who has the ability to create new channels.

    I wold like be able to restrict this…
