  1. Audio Chat Admin Settings

    We would like the ability to turn off audio chat in Teams meetings until we have more granular control over the video/audio chat features.

    Business case: We have some sites which are bandwidth challenged so we don't want to offer this feature until we can control which sites get it.

    • Teams function with Sharepoint On-prem

      Make it possible to link Teams with an existing SharePoint onprem.
      Because not every Userdata and DB values could be legally uploaded(in Cloud) in some countrys. Data security is sometimes much more Importen for each files/entrys. (and companys)

      • Policies to Remove select Tabs/Panes from Client

        It would be great to have even greater control over what a user can see/use in their Teams client.

        A current example of this would be the Messaging policies. We are able to disable chat for a user by assigning them to a new messaging policy. This then removes the chat tab for the user.

        It would be handy to do this for the other features as well like Meetings.

        In our company's case, we implement "Smartrooms" which are just video conferencing systems with whiteboarding and O365 capabilities (basically different versions of the Surface Hub). Behind each Smartroom is a…

        • Teams Archiving PowerShell Commands

          We would like functionality in PowerShell to check the archive status of a Team and also to be able to set the status.

          For example as we’d like to programmatically change a Team to archived if it hasn’t been accessed in 6 months. It should also change the SharePoint site to read only for the members as it does in the Teams UI.

            • Allow application settings to be administered via Registry / GPO or add to Tenant

              Teams needs to have the capability to be managed like the rest of the O365 suite via Registry and/or GPO settings. Things like Startup at login, Start minimized to tray, suppressing the app launch splash screen, suppressing the 'install mobile app' banner, t-bot, app add-ins should all be manageable and in one place.

              • Configure app start-up behavior when install Teams desktop app

                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.

                • More granular persmission for Teams for their team site

                  Currently team members can only be given "full control," "edit," or "Read" permissions on their respective team sites. We need a bit more granularity and be able to assign also "Contribute" and other permission levels on each team site.

                  • applocker

                    Deploying this to the user's profile make administration of the application for AppLocker problematic. Especially if it is self-updating. Any file hash or certificate rules would be subject to change without notice.

                    • Cross team channels

                      It would be good to have the option of creating channels that span multiple teams. This is great of matrix type organisations where you may have portfolio type teams (Marketing, IT, HR etc), but have cross team functions like Project Management. In that case we would be able to create a channel that is visible within all selected teams and members therein, while preserving other channels to be private within individual teams.

                        • Add remove access from users for a channel

                          Hi, When we create a team for a department, e.g. IT, we add all user within the team. but there should be able to create a channel and exclude specific users from that channel as they might not be the audience for that.

                            I work in the education sector and have over 1 million licenses we look after. 99% of these are not licensed to use skype for business because they do not want users to be chatting during lessons (K-12). This is for esafety reasons and prevent bullying when teh school dont have the time or resources to monitor this. For those that have, they can get a copy of the conversation history as it is stored in teh users mailboxes.

                            Teams does not follow any of this and some of my larger customers will not adopt Teams until the chat facility…

                            • Office 365 Groups and Team Membership

                              It is possible to get into an orphaned Team state where there are no "Owners" within Teams, but adding a member to O365 group does not add that as the owner within Teams.

                              This makes it possible to lock yourself out of Teams if the last owner leaves the team, it is not possible to add another member.

                              We tested this on May 19th/20th. Removing a member from the O365 did not remove them from Teams, and an Owner on the O365 group could not see the team unless they were added from within Teams.

                              • Transfer ownership

                                There seems to be no way to transfer ownership of a team from a sole owner who has had their credentials revoked. Changing ownership in the Admin App seems to only affect the 365 group, and has no effect on the team in the Teams App.

                                • Entierprise Deployment .MSI That Installs Into C:\Program Files

                                  Build an MSI that will install the Teams application into "C:\Program Files". Then any user that logs onto the computer can go to Start > Search for Teams > Launch Teams > Sign in to their account > Then Teams Builds the appropriate App Data folder for them.

                                  This would be great for Enterprise Deployment. Some Enterprise project groups consist of 15-20+ people, and having an enterprise deployment solution would help speed up Microsoft Teams adoption.

                                  • audit logs search filtering by team name

                                    Currently, when administrators search teams activity in audit log, they can input only user name and file/folder/site for filtering.
                                    We would like to search by Team (Office 365 group name).

                                    Exported CSV file is to huge, it is difficult to search using this.

                                    • Allow the Free Teams license to operate like the PowerBI free tier/licensing in o365 admin

                                      Our org uses Azure cloud and PowerBI already and we want to use the new free version of Teams, however the way the free license is setup right now, existing Microsoft Accounts that have any sort of o365 tenant can't use the free version (only buying a full o365 license is an option).
                                      We'd love to try out teams without having to create a whole new set of email addresses/tenant but we can't. Can you make the free teams license operate similar to the PowerBI Free/Pro license? We have a mix of both free and pro powerbi users in the…

                                      • Allow administrator to delete chats and posts from others

                                        Old messages clutter channels. It would be nice to be able to delete other people's old chats if you have Administrator privileges.
