  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.

  2. Hide "Open in Sharepoint" option in files menu

    My company would like to restrict the "Open in Sharepoint" option in the files menu for certain teams/channels. The ability to hide this feature would be great.

  3. Provide a much more obvious indicator that a Team has "Guests"

    My organization is EXTREMELY worried that a user may post something in a Team that has Guests without realizing external Customers may be in the Team. We are using the nomenclature that a Team name in ALL CAPS is a Team with external people, but it would be great if we could turn on a Banner on Posts (similar to the "This post will be seen by 65 people") in red or yellow so it's very very apparent that you are posting something external people can see.

  5. Entry/exit announcement type

    Entry/exit announcements for people who join with the Teams app. Right now it is only for the those who dial in from a phone. The ability to turn on and off per meeting would be nice as well.

  6. Allow multiple profile instances of desktop version of Teams

    I would love the ability to have more than one instance of the Teams desktop application running so that I can easily jump between information located in different places in Teams. As an example, today I can run multiple instances of Outlook allowing me to click on one instance to view emails and a second instance to view the calendar. This allows me to easily to windowed side-by-side comparisons and not "lose my place" from where I was looking at before if I want to look somewhere else in the application.

  7. Enable recovery of deleted Planner Tabs in MS Teams

    If you create a Planner tab in Microsoft Teams from an existing plan and then delete the plan, there is no way to recover the plan at all. This has already resulted in my lost work for our users. A change is required to allow recovery of plans deleted in error via Microsoft Teams.

  10. Organize teams

    Not sure if this is out there but I think it would be very beneficial to be able to group teams into folders or groups. This would help our team a ton with organization.

  11. Let us collapse/expand our teams list

    One user asks for:
    I'm member of several teams in Teams and when I switch between channels in different teams, other teams seemingly at random collapse the channel lists. This impedes my workflow when I participate in discussions in several channels in different teams at the same time.

    Another user says:
    Please give me an option to collapse or expand all Favorites

  12. Hide teams toolbar

    We would like to hide the teams toolbar that stays in the left of the client. It takes up a lot of space in the view that could be used to improve the navigation in the team.

  13. Make filter persistent. When I set a filter for Activity and then click on teams

    Make filter persistent. When I set a filter for Activity and then click on Teams or Chat and then go back to Activity my filter has been removed. Make this persistent so I don't have to keep resetting the filter.

    try this instead  ·  Suphatra responded

    Currently we have Teams defaulted to show you the first (up to five) channels ever created. If you want to add more channels to your left rail view, just click the ellipses next to the channel name and select “Favorite”. When you favorite the channel, it will then be “pinned” to your left rail under that team name.

    Try that and let me know if that meets your needs!

  15. 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.

  16. Remove status messages showing up on every single chat

    It gets really annoying when 1 out of 20 people in a group chat has a status message and it shows up all the time. Useless feature and gets in the way.

  18. Allow admins to set default Team language

    Microsoft Teams desktop client team is set to US date format MM/DD/YYYY by default. It would be ideal if Teams would pick up the default language / date format (English Australia for example) from either the Operating System or allow the administrator to set the default language without user intervention.

  19. Ability to Completely Disable File Sharing

    There needs to be a way to completely remove the "Files" tab from Teams and disable chat attachments as well, so users within the organization cannot share files.

    We have a very strict structure for our internal file sharing and data organization, and cannot have even our internal users sharing files back and forth.

    If this feature doesn't get added we will be forced to abandon Teams completely and go with a 3rd party or open source route.

  20. Private channel access by non Team member

    The new private channel functionality doesn’t solve the basic private channels need. We have tons of needs for private channels where we want to invite someone to a channel but not give them access to the rest of the team. One example: BD proposal where you need a non-BD team member to be involved. They can’t have access to other BD files, just this one channel for this one proposal. Since they can’t have access to other BD files they aren’t part of the team, but if they aren’t part of the team they can’t get access to the channel.…
