  1. There needs to be permissions on channels

    This is hugely important as 1 team may have multiple levels of engineers on different levels.

    Note, this is a built in feature of Slack.

  4. Create a Microsoft Team based on a Office 365 Group created in Yammer

    Office 365 Groups is supposed to be a single definition for a Group across all Office 365 services. However, Microsoft Teams cannot be based on Office 365 Groups created in Yammer. Please fix this so that Yammer Groups and Microsoft Teams are more tightly integrated. Fragmentation of Office 365 Groups will result otherwise.

  5. Allow Admins to Set Notifications for Groups and Channels

    Currently, it up to users to turn on notifications for new posts in channels. This should be up to the admin/channel owners as these are sometimes used for business operation notifications and we can't rely on every user to actually turn on notifications for a channel. In fact, there is far too much left up to the user that a Teams Admin should have the ability to setup as an organizational policy.

  7. Allow team Owners to delete / archive channel threads and messages

    Team Owners should have the rights to delete or archive channel conversations and messages, including the ones written by other members and guest users.

    Ideally the owner should have the option to also delegate these moderation rights for each Team and/or Channel.

  8. Enable meetings and live events to stream directly to outside rtmp(s)

    So add a option to OUTPUT the meeting or live event to a outside RTMP(S) URL to cast a meeting directly into a outside platform.

    This way use a meeting/live event but doing real time playback on any other platform.

  10. 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.

  11. Support multiple organizations without switching

    Please allow multiple organizations within teams without switching. Just like Outlook supports multiple email addresses. We work with multiple companies and would like a seamless Teams communication tool.

  15. Selecting Team from Team Search Results Should Highlight and Expand Team on Left

    I have a few hundred teams. When I use the search under Teams to find the Team I want, and click it, it does show the correct team on the right, but suppose I didn't want the General channel, suppose I wanted another channel, now I must click the team name at the top ("Team_Name > General"), then click "Channels" and click the channel I wanted.

    This is because in my list of a few hundred teams, I cannot be bothered to scroll through the long list of team names on the left navigation tree.

    It would be better if,…

  16. Who has viewed a channel message

    Our IT department is testing out Teams but noticed a feature that doesn't exist (or that we could find) that exists on other messaging platforms. having the ability to see who viewed a message in a channel.

    This feature becomes extremely important when you have teams with a lot of users in a channel and not everyone has to reply because it is more used as live status information and just need to make sure that your team is staying engaged and viewing the messages.

    Teams offers a lot of great features, but this one feature is key and extremely…

  17. Set up a channel to work like a "virtual room"

    Set up a channel to work like a "virtual room" so that for example chat is not accessible for people outside, and you can easily turn on/off sound, mic, screen sharing and video. It is also important that you can see who is in the rooms (channels). Much like the Sococo solution does (https://www.sococo.com/) that we use today for this.

    This way can we combine our virtual office environment with the team and project collaboration.

  18. Categorize Teams Beyond "Favorite"

    Right now individual Teams are either designated as "Favorites" or "More." It would be ideal if it were possible to designate a custom taxonomy for grouping Teams.

  19. Call history for Auto Attendants or call queues

    We have had several queries regarding obtaining logs from call queues or auto attendants similar to those that could be obtained for S4B.

    Is there anyway this can considered so we can investigate issues raised for these voice apps

  20. Ability to add the Flow app to a private channel

    Currently, you can't add the Flow app to a private channel. Because of this, you can't also do other things that require it, like send a message or an adaptive card from Power Automate to a private channel.
