  1. 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.

    • Add Option to disable Store Function

      This is related to the below Option.

      https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18585292-ability-to-disable-some-tab-app-tiles

      Have received several requests from companys requesting that they need to limit what apps the user can add to a team.

      Admins should have the ability to not only limit what tabs/apps the users see but also disable the Store feature completely.

      • Read-Only Files

        I would like to be able to adjust member settings such that members only have read-only access to files. Otherwise, the ability to make some files read-only access by members would be another way of accomplishing this. That way only owners can edit it.

        • Date format display

          Allow me to change the format of the way the date is displayed when looking at the document access history. The date format seems to be in US style, with month first. I want to see day first

          • Channel moderators and owners can delete unwanted conversation traffic on a channel

            As a channel owner, it would be very useful to be able to delete unwanted conversation traffic from a channel and to designate one or moderators to be able to manage conversation traffic - approve posts or remove unwanted posts

                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.

              • Control "public connectivity to Free Microsoft Teams

                Skype for Business Online allows administrators to control "public IM connectivity" on the admin portal.
                Microsoft Teams also should allow administrators to control "public connectivity to free Microsoft Teams" on the admin portal.
                O365 users worry that home users can install free Microsoft Teams on thier PCs and invite O365 users to their teams.
                O365 users are more likeiy to wrongly upload confidential information to the free teams.

                    • Time limit for editing/deleting posts

                      We would need an admin setting to set a time limit for how long users should be able to edit/delete their posts/conversations.
                      Owner should be able to delete without a limit but members should be able to edit/delete for example for only 15 minutes.

                        • Delete/Hide all messages from a channel

                          Similarly to clearing logs, it would be very useful if the team owners can clear out all the previous messages in a channel.

                              • Setup auto/manual cleanup of unknown users

                                As users come and go from the organization, the teams are being left with orphaned "Unknown User" in the list of members. There should be an admin function or scheduled cleanup to remove these orphaned users from the team membership. I understand their old posts will say Unknown User and you can't change that, but at least clean up the user membership list. It would be great if the name of the poster was not dynamic and tied to a profile, so that historical posts would still say the name of the poster. Maybe you can add the name of…

                                  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.

                                  • Allow adding or editing Teams SharePoint site Content Types

                                    Would absolutely love the ability to add templates and forms into content types in the document library created by teams in the team SharePoint site. So that when someone goes to add a new document they have the ability to choose from templates and the content types I put into SharePoint. Also some more of the standard site features of a standard SP site would be lovely (I.E. workflows and the like)

                                    • Use Display Name field instead of First Name in multi-party chats

                                      Use Display Name field instead of First Name in multi-party chats

                                      In some cases, we set display name of the customer’s account differently than listed in the First and Last name fields in AD. For example the first name is James, but in display name he is listed as Jim. Let's assume that there is no option to change the First name field, and only Display name field can be modified.
                                      When I start conversation with one person – his or her name will be listed based on Display name field in AD (we list it as lastname, firstname). However,…

                                      • Microsoft Teams Azure AD Admin Role

                                        Create a Microsoft Teams Azure AD Admin Role for organizations to have a more task oriented Security design around the service. Basically, the Global Admin is very privileged, and the Teams services is not something that a Global Admin, in large enterprises, really needs to management. An Admin role in Azure AD would allow the service management teams for Microsoft Teams to implement settings on the Teams services directly, and create, read, update, delete existing teams. This should be possible leveraging the Microsoft Graph.

                                        • Link Teams to existing SharePoint site

                                          At our office we're using Teams for parts of our Project execution, we use it to communicate, collect information, share files, compare notes, create a wiki, etc.

                                          At the same time we have Project Online, with a registration of the same projects. We use that for our deliverables, time- and projectmanagement. But also for information gathering (as we do in Teams).

                                          How awsome would it be when I integrate some of the Teams features into the corresponding Project site. And Share the library, and the OneNote.

                                          Now we use two libraries (one for Teams and one for Project) and we…
