  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

        Hi folks, I am collecting feedback on this so we can determine prioritization and user need.

        Please comment in the thread below and/or tweet to me at @skprufo about how this affects you, how you currently add members, and who you think would benefit from this in your organization.

        Thank you!

      • Block change picture

        In Skype for Business we were able to prevent users from uploading pictures for their avatar. This was done from a PowerShell script that modified the OWA policy. We should have the same option with Teams. Hopefully in UI instead of PS.

        • 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.

            Hey everyone — Suphatra’s back! And I’m on the case with this item.

            I talked to engineering and I think they don’t understand this request. The requests says “Admin App” — do you mean Admin Center? The O365 portal?

            Also, what exactly do you envision for central administration — for example — what can you do now, can’t do, and would like to do with this new feature.

            Your feedback will help me get the team to put more resources into this. Thank you!

          • 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.

              • 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.

                    Thank you all very much for the great response. The survey is now closed. The feature team will be reviewing all the data that was gathered and responded based on the findings.
                    Again, thank you for helping us make Microsoft Teams the best it can be.

                  • Improve Install options - Install for all users and install location

                    Raising this again as Microsoft closed the previous request, saying it was complete even though it was not. (link below)

                    Teams should install to the program files directory, not the users AppData.

                    And NO, the answer is not to put a copy of the MSI in Pogram Files and deploy to the users AppData when they login.

                      • There needs to be permissions on channels

                        This is hugely important as 1 team may have multiple levels of engineers on different levels.

                        Note, this is a built in feature of Slack.

                        • Usage stats per team

                          We need to be able to see usage stats per team in admin center. Current stats show usage per user. This tells us very little as a user can be a member of multiple teams. Business area owner and rollout/adoption managers want to be able to select a team and see how much activity per week/month etc. In our case, this is the only metric that they're interested in.

                              I love teams
                              However we strating office 365 for a few months ago.
                              At that timne a created the necassary groups and distribution lists.
                              everytime worked fine.

                              office365 groups were new for me so I didn't use them.
                              for two weeks ago I started to explore teams and create a ream foir our ICT department.
                              We start using it and had a lot of channels and discussion creaed since then.

                              yesterday I saw office365 created a office365 group for this team whice is shown in de company addresslist. this group has also, san unwanted mail address.

                              Right now in…

                                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.

                                • 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.

                                  • Delete Team without deleting Office Group

                                    I can create a Team and it creates an O365 group. If I delete the Team the O365 group will be deleted too. Good and fine. BUT - If I create a Team an option is offered to create a Team for an existing O365 group. Once created I am unable to delete the Teams Team without deleting the O365 group. Please help.

                                    • 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.

                                      • Group Policy Template

                                        When are the Group Policy Templates going to be available for Microsoft Teams? I want to unify desktop app settings at my company (like disabling Skype Integration) but haven't seen a way to currently achieve that.

                                        • 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.
