  1. View Followers of a Channel

    For large teams and channels, I would like to see who actually is following a channel.
    So when I going to write a new post, I can decide if I explicitly mention someone, or not, based on set of persons following the channel.

    • Improve "add members" to team

      You have to add each member one by one in a team. It would be nice if it could be a grouping option to add multiple users with the same type of permissions (as if I insert a list of people with any delimiter, then check for names and click add) or import users from .csv / .xlsx file (users with roles).

        Thank you so much for this feedback. I was actually sitting with a user yesterday who was struggling to add users to a channel because she was typing in names one by one, which is a normal inclination. I showed her that she can put any distribution list into the field (for example, all@mycompany.com) and it would invite everyone who is on that email address. Try it out and let me know if you have any more questions. I’ve also routed this feedback to design so they can implement a sign or something to show people that they can do this.

        Thank you for helping us make Teams awesome!

        Sincerely,
        Suphatra

      • 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.

        • Improve UI for following channels

          It seems that to get proper notification about channel activity, you have to "follow" a channel. However this is far from obvious as the option is buried in a context menu. Furthermore, the fact whether a channel is followed/not followed is not clearly indicated.

          I would prefer if the follow/unfollow option was indicated in a similar way as the favourite channel star, placing a symbol besides the channel name that can be toggled with the mouse.

          Furthermore channels in the "n more channels" popup currently can't be followed. That should be possible.

          • Properly Delete a Channel

            When a channel is deleted its activity remains in the Notifications section of the Activity tab and its conversations are visible. Also the ellipsis will allow you to select 'Delete this Channel' (again) and the File tab below the ellipsis shows an 'Unknown Error' message (I'd deleted the SharePoint folder too). When a channel is deleted, everything related to it in the UI should disappear. There is a valid argument to retaining the Files and Notes on SharePoint, to be deleted manually if desired.

            • Don't hide channels in the "More channels" dropdown when there is space to display them

              If there's only one more channel, it doesn't make sense to hide it behind a "More channels dropdown", you're not saving any space. I've noticed this with a few things in Teams, if there is room to display all of the channels vertically, or very few extra channels, it's bad UX to hide them behind a link.

              • Search all the words in a Team Name when searching for a Team

                When I search for a team, I can only search on the first word of the team name. Searching should search all the words in the team name.

                If I have a team called Software Deployments and I do a search for Deployments, I won't find the team. I have to search for Software and then it brings up Software Deployments.

                Please fix this ASAP.

                • 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).

                    It would be really useful to copy a team with all Channels and files/tabs associated, this way we could create a template and copy it when creating new teams

                      We’ve heard your suggestions and are working on the ability to clone an existing team using a template. When released, if you were to click on Add Team, then Create a Team, you would get the UI pop up that prompts you to “Create your Team” but, if you look to the bottom of the UI you would see the option to choose “Create a team using an existing team as a template”! Once you select that option, you would be able choose which channels, team settings, apps, and members to inherit via a simple setup wizard.
                      Look for this feature to release by the end of the calendar year! And thank you all for the great feedback. -Warren

                    • Introduce a feature inside channels, to pin a post to the top

                      At present, it's very easy to miss seeing an important post in a sea of posts, on a channel that sees a lot of traction. There should ideally be an option to pin important posts to the top of the channel, so that it's not inconspicuous.

                          • Conversation Webpart for SharePoint

                            It would be nice to embed a conversation in SharePoint as it is possible with yammer. This will allow us to create a general Teams with all employess as members with a main channel. This channel should then be shown in our SharePoint Intranet as a news tile (Webpart).

                              • Mention one @Team2 from inside another Team1

                                I found a similar idea already posted but not as simply put.

                                I want to mention a team from within a different team.

                                Real world scenario: we have a team for gym members, and we're setting up another team which is likely to attract people from the same interest group as the gym. We want to @mention this new team inside the gym team, allowing people to click the mention and go to the team and join.

                                    We have a recurring meeting tied to the team's channel and the conversation history has grown way too long over time. Each reply also notifies the accumulation of all participants even if they're not attending the current instance anymore.

                                    • Delete Connector Generated Posts

                                      We have an RSS connector publishing posts to a channel. Sometimes, these posts aren't relevant to the channel.

                                      It would be good if anyone (or possibly just the Group Owners) could delete these connector generated posts.

                                      Without deleting the post, relevant channel connect gets pushed up the feed meaning its more likely that useful conversations aren't seen.

                                      • Combine conversations

                                        Sometimes it happens, that a reply to a conversation is not created (by user) as a reply but with a new conversation.
                                        I must say, that this is happening very often.

                                        Due to this fact, I request a feature to combine existing conversations into one!

                                        That would be also helpful for conversations that are created by receiving Emails with the Emails-connector. Often those conversation based on Emails should get combined or get connected afterwards.
