    • Screen Space

      Don't restrict the width of the screen space for channel conversations, if my monitor is wide enough, adjust the display to fill up all the available space.

      • Keep Excel formatting when pasted into Teams

        Our engineers need an easy way to paste columns and rows into a chat that keeps source formatting. Instead of creating a non-editable photo, If there could be the graphs that were there first it would help with our companies efficiency.

        • Allow hyperlinking to network drive locations

          While you are currently able to hyperlink to any https:// address, hyperlinks to \\-mapped drives does not work. having the ability to do this would be a huge help for a company that has a sophisticated network drive setup for everyone to access

          • Captioning on Audio and/or Video

            As being employer to several staff who is Deaf and reply on using subtitle when watching video. I was surprised to see no subtitle/closed captioned feature when I play a video called Introduction to Microsoft Team Product Tour (2.03 minutes video) as enclosed in this attachment.
            Thank you.
            Regards

              Hi Peter — I’m SO sorry! Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We are 110% committed to accessibility and we will make sure that captioning gets added to the videos.

              And Stephanie, thank you for highlighting why captioning is important otherwise. I’ll route that to the right dev team.

              Sincerely,
              Suphatra

            • Shared folders

              Allow to enter the shared folders on One drive! Otherwise its useless to use teams if i have no access to folders which are shared with me

              • Support address start with \\

                Currently, Teams supports prefix like http. Http address become clickable. But it does not support file server access prefix like \\. Many of our customer still uses local file server. They cannot bring their high confidential data to cloud by their security policy. They expect Teams can point and make clickable the address start with \\.

                • Keyboard shortcuts

                  Hi, Can't you offer keyboard shortcuts to get to different tabs (activity, chat, teams, meetings, files)? This will make our life much easier.

                  Thanks.

                  • Change how emojis render

                    Currently the rendered emojis look horrid with the non-stop gif like animation. Can we have emojis like how slack does them? Clean render, without animating them.

                    • Visually differentiate between the chats

                      There should be clear visual distinctions between the different chats in the same channel. it's hard to find separate. Having borders will definitely help. Having a chat title will be helpful as well and will help in easily replying to a thread.

                      • Free version of Teams or be condemned in small adoption rate.

                        Slack and even Discord grow because they are fresh, but also free. Especially Slack is free for up to 10 people. Which is great for small talented teams. And these are the people who adopt it fast.

                        • Ctrl-F support (Focus on "Search")

                          Ctrl-F should focus on the search field, like Skype.

                              Allow one to drag and drop files to chat conversation or group conversation, and not only the field at the bottom. Many employes don't know this, and ask how to drag files to conversation.

                              • Unable to create a team with existing Office 365 groups

                                We have disabled the functionality for the end user to create O365 group on their own using below article

                                After that as a member of the Security group (as described in the above article), per end user request we have created a new O365 group and added that end user as a Owner of the new O365 group.

                                Now EndUser can use Planner, SharePoint with the new O365 group but When the EndUser wants to create a team, he/she cannot able to use the existing O365 group (or new O365 group just created).

                                • deep link feature needed

                                  We love to work with teams and have a lot of channels, lots of discussions and conversations, but it is not easily possible to put someone's attention to a conversation, we had weeks or months ago. Therefore we need a deep link feature, with which the (email-)recipient can have access and navigate directly into the discussion or comment in teams.

                                    • Merge chat and team tabs into one tab and allow search to search both chats and teams

                                      Currently there is a difference between chats and teams. Not sure why that is but its annoying. When I want to start a conversation or see outstanding conversations, I want one view for the both tabs, and I want it to be easy to jump between team channels and private chats.

                                      I am aware of the alt-2 , alt-3 shortcuts but its more cumbersome than having the information all on one screen.

                                      • Please make me able to add individual people to different channels!

                                        I use one team for only me, so I can plan my work and the different projects I work with. I work with a lot of different people on different projects so I want them to be able to access my information about their projects, ergo adding them to a single chanel within my team.

                                        I dont want them to be able to access everything else I have going on in my teams! ONLY the specific chanel that is specific to their project.
