  2. I would like to chat with people outside my organization

    Hello,

    I need to be able to chat with people who are outside my organization. I have clients that would benefit from being invited into a group video chat or who would be better to connect with via video call period. Right now I am limited to using teams for internal meetings only. Given that we are all stuck working from home for the foreseeable future I think it would benefit everyone to be able to link up with everyone they need to chat with.

  3. **In-Text Reply Feature** for the WebApp and DesktopApp, just like the AndroidApp

    When using chat and group-chat on the Teams AndroidApp, there is a reply feature that comes up when you long-press a chat (similar to how it happens in WhatsApp). Please add this feature to the WebApp and DesktopApp; everyone wants this feature.

    WhatApp's WebApp and DesktopApp already have this, so that proves that it can be done.

    Why can't the Teams WebApp and DesktopApp have this feature come up when we click on the three-dots(...) present on a chat?

    Add it Microsoft! Thanks <3

  4. I Have Multiple Teams Accounts and Need to View Them Simultaneously

    My university has recently migrated to Teams, and my job has as well. I am unable to access both accounts at the same time, making it really hard to effectively monitor my school and career work simultaneously. I can see on similar posts that this was being worked on, but that was three months ago. Any updates?

  6. Keep it extremely simple like Whatsapp or even better like Wechat please!

    The Team window takes a very large screen space; unlike other office communication tools that can be reduced to a size like iPhone instant message.

    Very cumbersome application. Please help to keep it simple like a true messenger.

    Thank you

  7. Allow channels to be grouped at a user level

    I have loads of channels as I work for a large company and touch lots of products and departments. I am
    Regularly added to channels related to similar areas and would like to be able to group my channels so that I can organise them.

  8. Add Microsot To Do as an app in Teams

    Please add the ability to add Microsoft To Do as an app integration within Teams, the same way you can now do for Planner. It would be great to be able to see all my tasks within Teams.

  10. Ability to Pin "Saved" to the navigation on the left.

    Similarly mentioned under the "User customizable left navigation" post. But, I'm more specifically asking about "Saved". Under the new admin portal, 'Saved' shows up as an actual app. It allows me, as an admin, to pin that app to the left for all users. Where it should be to begin with...

    The problem is, it never loads up on the navigation bar...

    PLEASE allow for Saved to be pinned to the left. Its such a basic request and that feature is core to larger organizations that span hundreds of teams and need to use this as a sort of quick…

  13. Automatically close file in Teams Viewer if choosing to open in desktop or online application

    We had a situation where a user had a MS Word file open simultaneously in the Teams Viewer and the desktop version of Word. It seems Teams and Word couldn't reconcile changes and it wreaked havoc on the file while others were also editing.

  14. Add a "CLEAN EVERYTHING" button

    Add a "CLEAN EVERYTHING" button to the app, since it is very difficult to focus on what's new and forget about what's old. I am certain this would be a very popular feature. Some people are OK with keeping everything, but many people are not OK with it. It is like having a messy house versus a clean one.

  15. Forward directly into WebApp

    All the time when I try to sign-in into the WebApp (via https://teams.microsoft.com/) in private mode I have to confirm that I want to use the WebApp.
    I need a way to force directly into this without any confirmation for e.g. with a url parameter.
    This is necessary for public computers with multiple users.

  16. Group privileges for Teams/Channels

    Need the ability to add AD synced distribution lists or even O365 groups as members/owners in Teams. The memberships need to update when group membership changes so as users come/go they are auto joined to certain teams or removed based on group membership rather than relying on team owners to constantly update users.

  17. PLEASE PROVIDE "MESSAGE FORWARDING OPTION" in TEAMS APP

    At present , users are struggling to forward a "image message" , they are downloading and again search -upload the same file to send it to another user.For text messages , they are copying and pasting but it is not the same for picture messages.

    Suggestions:

    1) while hovering over the message , the last icon after the smileys "..."
    2) when clicking on this icon "message forwarding option should appear".
    3) This is very useful for millions of users , I have been expecting this on your next update.
    4) I have not checked it for mobile . If…

  18. Ctrl+J should open Files so you can see the file that was downloaded

    Ctrl+J is used in all major browsers to open the list of downloaded files. When you click a link/file in teams that results in a download, it is instinct to hit Ctrl+J to get to the file download list. Please add this shortcut key to flip to the either Recents or Downloads page of the Files rail app.

  19. Default Screen

    I would like the option for my chats tab to show my contacts at all times (maybe a separate contacts tab) so I can see who is online. I also don't like how it defaults to leaving my last conversation in view. I would like conversations to be opened in new windows or tabs so if teams is up an entire conversation is not the default view.
