  1. Allow organizer to end meetings.

    People should not have to manually leave meetings in order for them to end. We have had several people forget to manually leave meetings, and the channel continues to show that a meeting is in progress when in fact it has ended.

    The organizer of channel meetings should be able to 'end' meetings altogether instead of simply leaving the meeting space.

  2. Ability to Copy a Team

    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

    working on it  ·  Warren responded

    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

  3. 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.

  4. Don't generate random names for channel email address

    After you create a new Channel, when you choose "Get Email Address" it generates an email that is just random characters. It would be nice if it generated an email address based on the Channel name like it does for a new Team. Other suggestions have asked for the company name to be in the email address, or for the IT Admin to have more control of the name, such as the ability to customize the name.

    Example Channel named Channel1
    Current: af7b9300.<redacted>@amer.teams.ms
    Ideal: Channel1@amer.teams.ms

  5. Ability to print a conversation thread

    Our HR unit is using Channels with threads that is to be printed for handout purposes (procedures) They are suggesting the ability to print a thread would be very helpful as oppose to having to screenshot the whole page.

  7. 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.

  10. Tasks

    I'd like to be able to mark a comment in a team or chat as a task, and then have a section (with Activity/Chat/Teams/Files) called Tasks that listed all of the things I've marked as tasks. You should only be able to assign tasks to yourself, but can be on yours or others' posts. Others should be able to see that you marked it as a task. You should also be able to mark as complete, and others should be able to see that as well.

  11. 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.

  13. Expand multiple teams simultaneously

    At present (or at least in my environment), you can only expand 1 team and the other team will collapse itself once you click away. Since teams do not generate notifications this isn't ideal.

    I'd like to be able to expand multiples

  14. 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.

  16. Promote Channel to Team

    It would be useful to be able to promote a Channel to become a Team in its own right. Typical scenario is where there is a Team with channels for a number of potential projects; when a project gets the green light, this will be assigned to a new Team. Would be useful to retain the existing Channel content to kick off the new Team.

  17. Mark all as read at the team level

    Add an option to "Mark all as read" at the team level to mark all channel of the team as read.

    This would allow to clear new message that we don't want to read.

  18. Add an Agile Planning Poker Plugin

    It would be great to have a plugin for collecting Agile Planning Poker Estimates in Teams. Ideally you could:
    - Geed it a backlog query from on-premises TFS
    - Select a backlog item
    - Collect estimates privately
    - Have them shown all at once and then averaged based on your own formula (straight average, averaged to nearest Fibonacci number, etc.)
    - Have the result fed back into on-premises TFS.

    Even without TFS integration it would still be extremely useful it could handle collection and aggregation of the estimates. It would give us a reason to use Teams over just Skype…

  19. Allow Channel Level Security

    Allow Channel level security in addition to Team level security. This will allow for better cross collaboration. Commonly, you will have a set of internal org team members, but projects (channels) may contain external resources. It would be highly useful to simply give guest access at the channel level and once a project is done, simply delete or archive the channel, not have to remove Team guest users every time. This also solves the issue of having a large amount of Teams to control what guest users can see. Instead of 20 teams with different guest in each team, you…

  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
