  1. Allow owner of a team hide a channel from rest of the members or drag channel into a different team.

    Allow an owner of a team hide a channel once it is finshed.
    Example:
    My company has an "Advanced Program" Team; basically of all the preproduction parts. Within this team we have channels of all the different programs/customers to these parts. Once a program/customer has reached FULL production and isn't talked about in the weekly company meeting, we have no need to have the channel.
    Issue:
    We do not want to delete the channel and lose all information. Nor can we drag that channel out of the "Advanced" team into the "Full Production" team.
    Solution:
    Allow an Owner to hide…

    • 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.

        • Ability for Company Admins to provide a Company Guidline or Help URL for Users when they are creating a Team.

          Microsoft Teams Needs the ability for Company Admins to provide a Company Guideline or Help URL when creating a Team.

          The feature would be something like when an providing an admin option in the Office 365 Admin Center for the Admin to type in a Team Creation Guide Line Message and URL.

          And once this is enabled then a message banner would be displayed on the create team page encouraging them to read the company guidelines before creating a team.

          The guidelines itself would suggest to the user for the naming standards and when to make a channel or when…

              • Get-teams

                The powershell module Microsoft Teams needs improvement. The Get-Teams cmdlet returns only teams that the signed in user is a member of. If a user with permission to create teams creates 500 teams / 365 groups, As an admin, I cannot see which of those is Team enabled if they're private. The ability to have global visibility in the Teams backend is essential for administration and automation.

                  • Hide email addresses for users

                    I want to limit my employees ability to communicate with each to conversation solely available within the teams they are added too. While I have disabled the "Chat" option, each persons email address is displayed when you click on there username in a conversation. Is there away to hide users emails so they are not visible?

                    Background: All employees we have are remote, working in different states, making different wages, having different work loads, etc. I would prefer to limit there communication that may range on a variety of non work related topics that could potentially cause problems.

                    • Add our own policy links

                      We would like to be able to post our own links to our legal and privacy policies and not have it go to the Microsoft ones.

                      Also, would be great if there would be a feature to force new users to check off that they have read the policy (like in Yammer).

                          • We would like to block chat by TEAM and not turn it off for the domain, or by role

                            We have some Teams that really want to have the chat feature, clubs and teams and teacher groups and teacher/student groups, But we also have some Teams with younger students that are not using chat appropriately ie. 5th grade. It would be SUPER if we could control the Chat and the Video capabilities by each Team Owner.

                                I want disable auto-start option after the installation of Teams desktop app.

                                IT Admins would like users to start using Teams app after the announcement of Teams. IT Admins are planning to install Teams app to the users' machines silently. With current behavior, Teams apps are launched automatically, and users will get confused by unknown application being launched. The customer wants to users to start Teams app on their own after IT Admins have made announcements about it.

                                  • Hability to setup the default site collection on SharePoint

                                    It should be possible to setup where the Teams Sites are being created!
                                    For the moment its using the default site collection and this is something that in my opinion should be possible to define the site colleciton to use.
                                    or has an workaround to be able to disable the default "Files" option to avoid the creation of a subsite in a collection that is not intended to be used.

                                    • Disabling OneDrive within Teams Cloud Storage

                                      I would like to be able to disable OneDrive within our Teams Cloud storage options. We do not use OneDrive and its confusing having another storage application we don't use.

                                      • Option to disable banner while still receiving notification

                                        We would like to have an option that disables the pop-up notification but still allows the icon to blink on the taskbar, like Skype or Skype for Business.
                                        Currently we only have the option to have the pop-up banners which are intrusive on a single screen setup, or to disable them completely.

                                        • Improve third party file integration: make it off by default; make the settings available at both the tenant and team level & easier to find

                                          The comments at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/Microsoft-Teams-adds-third-party-file-integration/ba-p/80880 are all going nuts about:

                                          1) The fact that the integration was pushed live by default, opening up the door to shadow IT without active consent.

                                          2) The setting should be controllable both that the tenant level (to allow or shut down access globally), and at the team level (so if it is allowed at the tenant level, team owners would have the the option to allow or disallow it for their specific team).

                                          3) People struggle to find the settings that control this buried in the 365 admin center. I first looked in the Teams…
