  1. Multiple Conversations/Topics per Channel

    It would be great if we could add additional Conversation Tabs to channels.

  2. Delete meeting recordings and mention of meetings

    When I record a meeting it posts it to the Channel. This is great, but there is no way to remove the recording once it is posted. I can go to Stream and delete it there, but the reference with a dead link still remains on Teams. Also, every time I start a meeting it leaves a reference in the channel. There is no way to delete those either. I'd love to be able to clean up my channels and remove all of those meeting references and dead recording links. Please enable the ability to keep an organized and clean…

  3. Allow Guests to schedule Private and Channel meetings

    We work with partners remotely who are just as much a part of our team as those who work for us. These partners are invited to our teams as guests and we would like them to be enabled to schedule meetings for the team. When we try to enable the switch for this it won't allow it so it must be an administratively prevented option.

  4. 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.

  5. Better Team Permission Control

    The current team settings are very bare-bones.

    For instance, there's a single permission that allows for adding/modifying/removing tabs. These should all be separate permissions.

    For the sake of usability, there could be a "master" permission for each piece of functionality (tabs, channels, connectors, etc...) and an expandable list of the sub-options where, if you didn't want to give a certain role all of the permissions for a certain functionality, you could give a role a subset of the create/modify/remove permissions.

  6. 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.

  7. Ability to Disable Public Teams

    We only want our users to create private teams in MS Teams. Currently it is possible to create Public Teams. We would like the ability to manage this to disable\enable Public Teams

  8. turn off sounds

    I want to be able to TURN OFF notification sounds. I don't mind the visual notification, but the sound is very distracting. I want to be able to concentrate on what I'm doing without the constant distraction of the sounds.

  9. Status Idle Time

    These settings are currently - If you've been idle for 10 minutes or more, Teams will automatically change your status from Available to Away.

    This NEEDS to be something as a user you can manually change the idle time like Skype for business (see attached image).

  10. Duplicate/Clone a channel within a team

    I run regular events which I create a channel for each event within the team, including the planning app with buckets and actions.

    It is very time consuming to set up the channel/planner each time and would be preferable to set up a template which I can duplicate for each new event, including the planner app.

  11. Team Dashboard / Landing Page

    When you click on a Team, it would be nice if you got a dashboard for the team / landing page instead of going directly to the "general" channel.

    This would be a great place to roll-up information for activity in the team:
    - recent conversations (from all channels within the team)
    - recent or all documents (similar to the OneDrive landing page, but scoped to the Team
    - search
    - membership list
    - pinned content
    - static content (to post general team information)

  12. 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.

  13. Renaming a Microsoft Team

    Currently when you rename a Microsoft Team it changes the display name to the new team name however on the backend in Exchange the old email address and alias remain, and a new email address with the new team name does not get created. When a Microsoft Team gets renamed it would be nice if a new email address and alias get assigned, and the old email address get shifted to a secondary alias.

  15. Planner access in chat

    In Teams, on the Chat component, I'd like to be able to add Planner app as a tab. I have some activities that involve simply working with an individual (effectively, a team of One) and communicating via Chat seems more conducive to setting up a separate TEAM channel

  16. 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.

  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. Allow organizer to close participant video in Teams meeting

    When having multiple persons participating Teams meeting often it is nice to join with video on. Sometimes others may suffer a poor-quality connection or have their webcam pointed in other direction than it supposed. Is there a roadmap to allow the meeting organizer to switch off the participants video like you can mute other persons?
