  1. 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)

  2. order of conversation

    It would be great if you could change the default order of conversations, so that instead of it being ordered by most recent activity on the thread, it was ordered by the most recent posting of conversations. The reordering of conversations as people participate on the threads is jarring, and you can always find recent activity through the Activity tab.

  3. 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.

  4. Teams App notification options

    We would like to have the possibility to set notification options at the Teams Channel level, so:

    1. Teams App - who gets notified (whole team, with exception) or (only certain members)
    2. Teams App notification allowed times or quiet times for all users on the whole channel (with exceptions for always notifications)
    3. Teams App notification types for the whole channel (Pop-up, vibrate, email or all)
    4. Consistent and immediate Teams App notifications.

    Some times Teams app notifcations are not immediate and take many hours to appear.

    Thanks

  5. Usage statistics of my teams

    As we have in SharePoints with "site use", it would be great to have measurable information about each team that I'm using or that I'm the owner of. This would help community managers / owners to gather information on their way to encourage adoption and the uses of teams in their respective workgroups.

    New business analytics report is a big picture of the organization but not really To have stats directly in their teams would be just great.

  7. Customize the Team creation interface

    Depending on the context of an organization, it may be useful to let tenant administrators to customize the "Add Team" page in order to :
    - Inform about specific practices of Teams in the organization
    - Communicate about legal, terms and conditions before creating a new Team
    - Publish communication and link to a provisionning system that some organization are implementing when preventing user to create Teams directly from the interface.

    It could be done by a text panel in the "Add Team" interface. The content of the panel should be editable from the Teams administration interface at the tenant…

  9. 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…

  10. Chat history to be shown to a new group chat member

    For Microsoft Teams chat, when you add a new member into group chat which has three or more members, the new member can view the history chat. However, when you add other person into the existed one on one private chat, the newest member cannot view the chat history.
    I would strongly request that a private chat to show the Conversation history to the newest member.

  12. Ethical Wall Enforcement

    Please add the ability to enforce ethical walls within chats. It does not need to be anything fancy to begin with. A simple "member of group a" can not communicate to "member of group b". Similar to how you can setup ethical walls with Exchange Transport rules. This is a must in certain business and is the only thing blocking a rollout on Teams.

  13. Allow users to add a 'How to pronounce my name' field under their name in the Identity viewer.

    Many people have trouble remembering how to pronounce their coworkers names, and it becomes awkward to ask / mess up their name after a few weeks. It would be awesome if you could see how to pronounce someone's name when you hover over their name in the chat window.

    ++ Bonus if you could add other custom fields - i.e. gender pronoun.

  14. Usage report filter by Team and Channel

    I work and manage a support Team that uses Channels to organize support topics. Please build in the ability to measure user activity by channel.

    example:
    First tier team has a question about an application and ask in the applications channel for help. Second tier team responds with the answer.

    T1 now has a question about account management and they reach out in the account management channel. T2 responds.

    How much does John Doe use the Apps Channel vs the Acc Mgmt channel? which topic (channel) has the most questions?

  15. Only admin should be creating teams

    Give businesses option to only have Office 365 admin to create Teams. Currently any user can create a team any way they want and my employers want only admin to create teams so that there is a consistent naming structure to team names. Also they don't want users creating teams with private chatting to external users that no one knows about using resources that the company has paid for.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Teams Specific Profile Picture

    As a user of Teams, I would like the ability to change the picture I have in Teams without affecting the rest of my Office 365 account. I believe this will help give Teams a more creative (rather than corporate) feel, and potentially increase the rate of adoption. I know in my organization, we have been using Skype, and no one has set their Office 365 picture as their Skype picture.

  20. Audio settings offer additional selector for ringing device

    as in skype it would be great to be able to choose a different audio device for the incoming call ringtone. Thats good for people that typically use a headset, but are not wearing it all day.
