  1. Create subfolder with each conversation

    When you create a new channel it creates a new folder. In our use e we usually create subfolders in these channel folders. It would be great if conversations (or perhaps just those with subjects) would also create subfolders in the current channel folder.

  2. Misspelling suggestions

    When a word is thought to be misspelled there is a red zigzag under the word as is throughout other MSoft Apps. When you right click the subject word in TEAMs the "add to dictionary" option isn't there like it is in all other MSoft Apps. Please add this function, thanks

  3. Larger Chat Function

    Hi. I saw that you all are working on creating larger chat options for more than 20 people. Is there an estimated timeline?

  4. When creating a Team from a template, copy over tabs (including links), the Files tab file/folder structure, and ability to copy lists

    Take the current template functionality a step further by allowing the user to copy tabs that also setup the links/products they point to, allow files and folder structures from the files tab to copy over, and also allow the user to pick and choose other content from the SharePoint Team site like lists, doc libraries, etc. A use case our ours is having a Team setup to solely act as a template Team for Projects Managers to copy from so that they can have a standard setup for all projects.

  5. Integrate Channels from one team into one Dashboard channel for that Team

    If your team has 50 projects and those projects have 10 standard data points across each project, it would be great if when you are setting up a channel, you could identify those data points and assign them to the main dashboard to autofill. For example, every project is its own channel under one Team and it has a name, project code, project owner, etc...and you may want a dashboard that collects all of the Project Names, codes, and data points in one list.

  6. Search Users with mentions: I want to character searching.

    The mentions search a user used forward match. But, I want to word search using the mentions.
    ex) Username: search.user@test.com
    >> "@sea" is find it! But, "@user" or "@*user" etc... is not find.

  7. Make chat interface cleaner

    The Conversation window is full of wasted space. I need it to be flattened, with consistent display of time, username, and text all left-aligned. The 'conversation bubbles' are distracting and wasteful of space. Highlighting my own text is distracting from the actual information I care about, which is the text from whoever I'm chatting with. Slack does it great, with a different color for each user name.

  9. Keep people in the loop with Loops

    Since we have been using Teams in our organisation (100+ people) since release we have grown into needing some form of group based chat that isn't via channels. The group Chats work ok but have limitations (newly invited users can't see history) and are missing features (Can't remove other users from a group chat).

    Space here for Loops!

    User created, administrated and deleted
    Potential to integrate with the lifecycle of the workitem
    Loops will be it's own custom channel made on the fly.
    Will will be administrated by a user or org administrators
    Will be able to have intergrations/automations
    History…

  10. This is missing

    1. A tick for sent
    2. 2 ticks for received
    3. Change in colour of ticks when read
    4. Reply
    5. Forward

    Sorry but without these most basic of basic features it sucks badly.

  11. Remove channel deletion message when channel is restored

    Remove the "Person, Here deleted channel Channel Name." message when a channel is restored. It's slightly panic inducing (OMG, Channel Name is gone!?! ... Oh, wait, it's right there) and publicizes the error I managed to undo all by myself.

  13. 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…

  14. Quick Navigation

    You should add a hotkey to search for channels or conversations. Slack uses control T and it's super useful.

  15. Email Icon and accessibility

    Add the Email icon (just like you have for calendar) on the left bar. Instant access to email, this way i can stay in teams all day.

  17. subject for new documents

    Today, when you createa new Office doc (Excel, PowerPoint, Word...) and choose to start the conversation about that file, you have no way to choose a subject.

    Can we have an option, at the moment the conversation starts, to add a subject so we see more as a heading than just the file itself?

  18. Email notifications should include the entire post, not just partial

    We now get email notifications when not logged into teams and it includes the first portion of the post. It should include the entire post so we can decide if we need to login to Teams to reply or not.

  19. A permanent banner for the channel with brief summary of channel intent

    A banner for the channel that is permanently visible with brief summary of channel intent, to guide users on where to post material so it fits with the overall structure of the Teams area.

  20. ADM Templates

    We would really make good use of user ADM templates to control aspects of Teams, like the ability to disable running on startup, proxy connections, and other settings. We currently have no easy way of disabling already installed versions of Teams from running on startup, which is causing various issues for teachers in lessons.
