  1. Reporting Capabilities

    We are after reporting capabilities to capture granular detail on activity within Teams.

    We would like to have data capturing:
    1. Number of users enabled
    2. Number of daily active unique users
    3. Breakdown of devices uniquely used
    4. Number of teams created
    5. Number of teams deleted
    6. How many instant messages sent overall in the Chat
    7. How many calls made in Teams
    8. Number of files shared in channels
    9. How many combined ‘likes’ have been made over a period of time

        Thanks for the comments in the thread. You’re right — the vision you have for it is NOT what we currently have. (Though note that you can STILL add users via an email distribution list.)

        So, we’re working on this feature for you! Thank you for continuing to contribute to the community and conversation so we can get this right for you. :-)

        Sincerely,

      • Disable user ability to change profile photos

        Our users Active Directory photos are synced to O365 and are used as the profile photos within the applications. These photos are set by our HR department. The ability to change these photos for all applications has been disabled using the OWA Mailbox Policy powershell setting. Apparently, Teams does not play ball here - and our users are updating their pictures to things not appropriate for a work environment. Until this is resolved, Teams will not have a place in our organization.

        • Allow the central administration of Teams

          Currently an Admin cannot use the Admin app to centrally administer Groups, Planners and Teams. This creates a number of risks for an organisation: 1) unable to manage ownership; 2) unable to manage storage; 3) unable to manage information life cycles. Just to name a few. From a security and compliance point of view a central admin function is highly recommended.

            • Custom Team Member Roles

              Currently for any given team, there are only two options: member or owner.

              This only allows for two tiers of permissions. It would be great if there was the ability to either add custom roles to add more granularity for adding/removing permissions for different tiers of teammates.

              • Better Team Permission Control

                The current team settings are very bare-bones.

                For instance, there's a single permission that allows for adding/modifying/removing tabs. These should all be separate permissions.

                For the sake of usability, there could be a "master" permission for each piece of functionality (tabs, channels, connectors, etc...) and an expandable list of the sub-options where, if you didn't want to give a certain role all of the permissions for a certain functionality, you could give a role a subset of the create/modify/remove permissions.

                  Please add the administration of Teams into the Office 365 admin center. In a similar way Groups are managed.

                  • Allow global admin to be able to see all Teams (or sites) at one location or one page

                    It would be great from management point of view if we could see a list of all teams or their related sites from sharepoint at one location.
                    That way we'll know what all teams are there and it would be easy to navigate.

                    • Use Distribution List to dynamically manage Team membership

                      Use a DL to dynamically manage Team membership, not just initially populate the Team.

                      • Granular bot and tab controls based on Office 365 Groups classifications

                        Currently bots & tabs have one control - on or off. Many organizations must turn this option of due to data protection issues. Corporate data will be sent out of the Office 365 environment to unknown sources (bots and tabs).

                        What I would like to see is a granular control that allows you to enable bots & tabs for Teams that have specific Office 365 Groups classifications. For instance you might enable bots & tabs for "Public" or "Unrestricted" Teams but not for "internal" or "restricted" ones.

                        • Import EXISTING O365 group, but restrict NEW group creation

                          Would like to see more administration options regarding O365 group creation and publishing to Teams.
                          Currently there is only 1 option - turn new O365 group creation OFF at all or allow to create groups everywhere.

                          Would be good to allow owners import already existing O365 groups example (or give admins option to allow users to do that).
                          In our example we have controlled way (self-service portal) where users can order new O365 groups, but problem is that if we can control new O365 creation there, this group is not added into Teams after creation. And there is possibility now…

                          • Admin Control - Connectors

                            I would like to be able to have admin control over which Connectors are available for use with Microsoft Teams. These controls do not appear to be present today. For example I want to block the Facebook and Twitter connectors from use in our entire org with Microsoft Teams.

                              We start using it and had a lot of channels and discussion creaed since then.

                              • Ability to Control Document Edit Permissions

                                Currently when a document is added to a Team channel, all members of the channel have full edit rights on the document, which could result in documents being modified by too many people. Having the ability to make the file read-only to the channel except for the doc poster, or toggle editability by members of the channel could help doc owners share information without the risk of losing content to zealous editors in the channel.

                                  • Admins need more control over channel email options

                                    Currently admins can turn channel emails on/off at the tenant level, but have no visibility or control over what channels have their emails set to. I suggest admins should have a tenant-level policy that allows them to set a default channel email setting, as well as giving admins the option to prevent users from changing their channel to a different setting, requiring an admin to do it for them.

                                      • Allow admins to manage channel membership

                                        By default all team members are added to all channels. Admins should be able to add/remove team members from channels, and should also be able to disable the default behavior of having all team members automatically added to newly created channels.

                                        • Add new team member "Roles"

                                          It would be great if there could be additional "Roles" set within channels and the ability to tag those roles in a message. (For example: Manager, Supervisor, etc) So, if I wanted to message all managers I could simply type @Manager to flag them in my message.
