  1. Assign Nick Names

    I would like to be able to assign nick names for team members. Example, i have several people with the same name on my team so it would be nice if i could change one to 'Boss man' and one to 'Java Guru' and so on.

  2. Visibility of Presence from External Contacts

    Microsoft has opted the whole organization to use Microsoft Teams. The migration of contacts was great but presence are not visible for people outside the organization. It has been working with Skype, it would be better if Microsoft Teams works the same too.

  4. reputation

    I would like to be able to enable in a specific channel a reputation system.
    When a person anwer a question, others should be able to:
    - Upvote the answer
    - Mark the answer as accepted (this should be shown at the top)
    - Downvote an anser

    All of this actions should build up a scoring system and the users more active shoul be rewarded with badges or other visual indicators. This will help people to get engaged and help colleagues.

    This is only part of what I would really like to have in teams, a system like stack overflow,…

  6. It would be helpful for admins to see which users are following a channel. When tagging the whole channel, it just shows the total.

    I'll get a warning about the total number of followers I am about to notify, but there is not way to see who those followers are. As an admin, I want to know which users are following my team's channels.

  7. Options in the Teams Chat we can edit.

    Under Teams Chat I have a bunch of Contacts groups, but they are listed in alphabetical order I would like to be able to rearrange them.

    Also all groups open in expanded vs collapsed view is there a way to default this to collapsed view?

    Similar to the way you can in Skype.

  11. Mention Organizational Users Regardless of Team

    I would like to be able to have a user see (tag) an occasional post within a public team that they are not a member of, or at least be able to export a post to share in another team/channel.

    It doesn't make sense for every person in our organization to be a part of every team or department, receiving constant notifications and seeing all of their channels, but there seems to be no other way to work cross departmentally on occasional issues. We do not do one off project work so creating a team for every "task" or plan…

  13. Org chart inverted

    Display the Org Chart View from the bottom up. ie inverted. This would match organizations that have adopted this model of representing the company structure

  15. Advanced Check In - Check Out with Inclusive Org Chart Support

    The Org Chart feature populated by AD is AWESOME!!! Having it well integrated with a check in/out feature would make the Teams mobile app so efficient for SMBs like ours. Our President has been asking for a custom "company directory/check in check out" mobile app that we would develop internally for years. Since Teams is all about collaboration across the organization, I am also picturing the integration of the online presence baked in this. If Out of the Office Assistant is also right there with it, that would be cherry on top!

  16. How do I "invite" an SME to any specific thread without having to add as a member or guest to the whole group?

    I would like to invite an SME to a specific thread to collaboratively solve a problem. I wouldn't want to add the SME to the group. As a colleague, I would like to invite the SME to provide his/her input to the thread, gain context and provide a reply to it.

  17. Teams gives us suggestions for new team members. But I would like to remove a or all suggestions when I don't want to invite them.

    Instead of keeping suggested team members floating in the column I should be able to ignore or delete them. Now we are only able to favorite or pin them. I would like them to remove altogether. It would be even better to be able to disable Suggestions.

  19. Make an easy to see group dashboard like on Skype and other apps

    On Skype and other apps you can set up groups and easily click on the group to see who is available. You don't have to manually search each individual person. Teams is not user friendly and on the PC takes up way too much space.
