  1. About the role selection of 4 or more members

    When I add a member, it may not be able to select a role.
    If I add more than 4 members at a time like a PNG image, I can not select the role of the fourth person or later.
    I want you to be able to select the role of the member at any time.

  2. Teams should allow us to select what buttons/panels we want to display by default

    There are a few hard coded buttons on teams. Activity, chat, meetings, etc. It would be nice to choose which ones to display, including integrations such as planner. There are plenty of room to display those and there is no need to have a ellipsis button.

  3. Assignments part takes too long to load

    The GUI for the mobile app should be simplified as a lot of students don't always have the best phones and internet connections for some parts to load quickly or even load at all. Sometimes they cost us valuable points in assignments and we're lucky if our professors are understanding. Some may not be. The app and services are great, the GUI just has to be a bit more minimalistic and simplified so that all services work great at all times and people can save time

  5. Where is the settings button to customize the layout?

    There are multiple buttons for "store" but none I can find for "settings". Where is it? Do we have to install or buy a plugin to access settings? *confused*

  6. Remove popup when returning to internal Team from external Team

    Please remove or improve the confusing popup that occurs when I return to my internal Team tenant from an external Team tenant. The prompt text and button action interrupt the user flow and default action.

  7. Hide or Collapse the bulky "Reply" option in Teams Channel threads

    There is a lot of wasted space by the "<-- Reply" bar that shows under each message posted in a Teams channel. It would be more compact to make this something that appears when hovering over a message.

  8. Within Chat's "Recent" tab, include day of week beside the MM/DD date for past conversations

    The "Recent" tab of Chat lists past conversations. The dates for these are given (on my machine) in MM/DD format. I would find it helpful if an abbreviation of the day of week were included. For example, "1/10" would read "Thu 1/10."

    I remember the day of week better than raw date numbers. Such a feature could help me provide context to the conversation without having to pull up what day of the week the date corresponded to.

  9. Teams chat is broken

    Chat doesn't work, it won't read old chat and aren't updating on new chats either. Have now tried in 3 different chats and the windows app and get the same problem all the places.

    Please make this work!

  11. Activity is always the thread when starting the app, this should be customisable.

    Allow a user to "land" on a chosen area and actual thread rather than the default "recent activity"

    Also notification customisation for certain teams only rather than a catch-all

    I want to see all threads which I can manually do but I want a single team as my landing

  15. Add a MS Teams "add" button on the MS OWA main page.

    I used MS Teams with Outlook 365 for a previous employer. Currently I am using Outlook through Exchange and I have issues trying to link my work account to the MS Teams app.
    1 - is the MS Teams available for Exchange type of Outlook?
    2 - if not, why?
    3 - if yes, just create a user friendly button on front end or menu for users who want to add this IM service. And make Slack envious ;-)

  16. Button to extend all posts and comments in the Channel

    It is very hard to preview all posts and comments when half of them are hidden by "x replies from" or "see more". If you want to catch up after few hours of absence, you need to click thousands times to each "extend content link". Could you add one small checkbox somewhere to enable see one stream of everything, if needed?

  17. Allow arrangement of Teams/Channels into Groups in UI

    On at least two occasions, something like this idea has been proposed and declined. This may be because of a misunderstanding.

    This idea proposes to allow users to arrange Teams, channels and other views into groups, purely as a UI convenience.

    The default state would be that this reflects the existing view hierarchy, but it is possible to move the icons/widgets/links around in the UI to better reflect the user's view of their work. The view hierarchy would also be selectable so that the underlying structure can be seen.

    This satisfies one of the 8 Golden Rules of UI Design…

  19. Hi

    The options are too confusing. The integration between Teams, Skype, One Note is great but often not seamless. For eg: I created a notebook that is called as shared on Teams but cannot be seen by others using Teams. I get a message saying that the notebook cannot be shared now.

    I setup a Skype meeting through Outlook and it sends a url with Lync in it. Confuses the users a lot.

    The Outlook calendar view looks totally different from the Teams calendar view on an IPAD.

  20. Please fix the Latvian translation

    I hope this was machine translation of "Hang on tight.." because the meaning of what's written here is totally ridiculous, meaningless and for some even potentially offensive. Why not have fields default back to the original English text in places where no human translation/editing has been made.
