  1. Make UnifiedGroupWelcomeMessageEnabled Work for Teams

    Scenario: setting this setting to false to prevent a welcome message spamming a large group upon creation/addition then adding the members to the O365 Group via Exchange Admin Center - members do not receive welcome message as expected. Adding these members via Teams client - members DO receive the welcome message, and the setting is apparently ignored. This is bad because suggested group membership practice by Microsoft is as follows:

    "Best practice for managing Teams members: Add and remove members from the Teams client to ensure that the correct cascading access control to other dependent cloud applications is applied. Additionally,…

  2. Block Team owner from changing Team name

    Block the Team owner from changing the name of the Team. Only Admins can change the name of the Team.

  3. 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?

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  12. manage app access via group membership

    Would be nice to be able to restrict access to enabled, whitelisted apps on a user basis instead of a tenant wide basis, possibly by group membership associated with specific apps. We may not want all users to have access to all the whitelisted apps. Maybe this is on the roadmap in some form already ??

  13. 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…

  15. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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.

  20. Disbale autostart in Teams App for the entire tenant

    Admins need the ability to disable the Teams auto-start for the entire organization, instead of each end user having to go in and stop Teams application from automatically starting when you boot up your device.
