  2. 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

  3. Outbound Number Manipulations per PSTN Device

    In skype for business server, we had the ability to write "Called Number Translation Rules" and "Calling Number Translation Rules" for each PSTN gateway.

    There is no functionality to do this in Teams, so for each SBC I need to translate the powerful regex and translation statements that were available in Skype Server into the SBC.

    I feel this is a huge functional oversight.

  4. 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.

  5. Allow Guest access to custom domains on Tenant level

    Guest access should be restricted for customized domains on Tenant level in Microsoft Teams. Right now it is allowing the user to send request to all the domains with guest access. My companies are involved in their compliance and require to allow Guest access to limited domains only.

  7. 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.

  8. Deleting messages

    Could the creator of a Team be given the ability to delete other Team members messages from boards? Sometimes they will make mistakes that could be easily corrected by being able to delete them.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  16. Moderate Channels and limit private chat options

    I konw that there is a possibility to disable chat feature to students, but it would be great to have the hability have private chats onlyu with teachers.
    Another great feature would be give teachers the hability to moderate channels conversations, for example post a comment only after teacher has revised it. Also this feature will be great if it is limited to certain channels.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. Teams End Date

    In order to keep the number of inactive/old/no longer used "teams" from exploding, have a way to set an "end date" for the Team. I wouldn't want to have the end date for the O365 Group (that the Team is based on), since that group may be used for other applications.

    Maybe x number of days prior to end date, an email is sent to the Team owner, and then repeat the email for x number of days after the end date.

    After a certain number of emails, disable the Team. After a month(s), delete the Team.

    Thanks,

    Geoff Weatherford
