  1. 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.

  3. 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.

    needs your feedback  ·  Suphatra responded

    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!

  4. Assign policy to groups

    With the new admin portal you can only assign messaging policy to individual users. Why is this happening when the previous admin portal let us set different options to for example Faculty, Students etc? It's near impossible to manage per-user Teams settings for several thousand students who come and go. We need to be able to let group membership control these settings in Teams.

  6. data retention

    on the settings there needs to be something for enterprise data retention. e.g. after 60 or 90 days data is purged off, or conversations roll off.

  10. Is there a way for IT admins to export team membership and email address?

    Team Owners should have the ability to export team member names and email address into a .CSV file.

    As an admin, I'd like to be able to double check with my support teams to figure out when we don't have proper access to reports and other sites that our Team Site is tied into.

    So I'd like to be able to export the team member list so I can audit who is apart of the team, remove who isn't needed or share needed information to other parties.

    we have this!  ·  Warren responded

    There seems to be some confusion around how this works. First off the ability to delete messages is off by default.

    The IT Admin who setup the Teams environment will need to turn on the admin ability to delete messages. Once they have enabled the functionality, admins will be able to delete user messages.

    If your IT Admin as enabled it and you still are having troubles please let me know in the comments below.
    -Warren

  13. End to end encryption

    End to end encryption so that chats are secure and private. Obviously only enabled under certain circumstances and for certain groups/users but it is necessary for sensitive discussions around legal or security matters, ie sharing passwords.

  18. Password Protection on folders and files within individual teams

    While we have multiple different members on individual teams, we have several different folders and individual files that we would like to be able to protect with passwords so that not all members of teams are able to view them without having to create new teams only for those specific folders and files. While we are able to password protect individual files before they are uploaded, it is difficult to do this for folders and will also require time to re-upload files that are already on our team sites.

    Being able to place password protection on our existing folders and…

  19. Group Chat: Make it possible for new participants to see previously shared files

    New participants to a group chat can't see files, via the Files tab, that were shared before they joined the chat. This is true even if you give them file access via OneDrive/SharePoint.

    Workaround: Remove all files and share them again (ouch).

    This seemed like a clear bug, but after consideration, I believe the behavior is intentional and a solution complicated/controversial.

    Since a shared file (files are shared in a group chat, not uploaded) is still owned by the person who shared it, if Teams automatically gave access to new participants, then Person A could share a file, Person B could…
