    • Manage who can create Teams

      So many O365 admins are controlling O365 Group names and now Team creations are messing up the O365 Group naming conventions.

      Here is an excellent guide how to set O365 Security Group to control who can create O365 Group and how to setup Naming policies for O365 Groups.
      https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Manage-who-can-create-Office-365-Groups-4c46c8cb-17d0-44b5-9776-005fced8e618?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US
      https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Office-365-Groups-naming-policy-6ceca4d3-cad1-4532-9f0f-d469dfbbb552

      As Team automatically creates O365 Groups, this should be identical or similar features to 1) manage who can create teams and 2) set Teams' naming policies.

      • 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

        • Push out updates for Teams faster

          The release notes where updated 2 days ago and I still haven't gotten the new version even if I click the check for updates option (currently on 0.7.0.5803). The option to see the current version ("About") also seems to have been removed from the menu (you now have to check properties for the exe file).

          I think not having the latest version is causing problems with status for me and all my colleagues since that was changed in the last update.

          • 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.

              • Limit the types of Teams a user can create

                There are different kinds of teams. An Educational tenant for example has the flowing types:
                - Normal team
                - PLC team
                - Staff team
                - Classroom team

                In order to deploy Teams to all users, we need the ability to specify which types of teams a user can create, preferably based on group membership. In our case we want all users to be able to create a normal team, but only a limited amount of users to create the other team types.

                • Prevent member from leaving a team

                  We should be able to lock Team / Office 365 group in such way that members can't leave the team.

                  • Export Grades AND Feedback!

                    When I set kids an assignment, I can export their grades to a .csv file. I want to be able to export the feedback that I give them as well so that I can use this as the base of a mail-merge to parents to show them what grade students got and the reason for a given grade. Back in the good old days when my school used Moodle it was easy to do this but that feature is missing in Teams for Education / assignments.

                    • Do simple as slack

                      If your AD isn’t the same AD Enterprise, you cannot connect with vsts. Notifications are horrible, you need to enable notifications instead of disable them. The interface is unfriendly as possible. The app for Mac, iPhone, Android, and windows are actually heavy. Slack is simple, Teams is really really complicated.

                      • Office Deployment Toolkit

                        If Teams is truly intended to replace Skype for Business (in the cloud), please include it for deployment through the Office Deployment Toolkit like Skype. Respectfully, I'm not going to waste the time to download another installer and setup another deployment for conferencing that my users can handle in Skype for Business just as easily. Thanks.

                        • Need the opportunity to unmute all participants on the meeting.

                          An Admin setting needs to be available so when a meeting is set up you can opt to un-mute all participants who join and give them the option of muting themselves. Also, the meeting owners need the ability to unmute participants.

                            It would be great to delete conversations if you are the owner of the group, even though you are not the creater of the thread.

                                  • Delete Threads

                                    Hi,

                                    I think Admins have to have a right to "purify" their channels and remove some conversations completely, for example accidental New messages instead of replies to existing threads. Also for example some already solved questions which does not need to stay there. Currently we can only remove own messages, but as an admin i would like to have an option to clean up the channel as i would like to.

                                    • Get-Team without needing to be a member of the team

                                      The Get-Team commandlet of the Teams module has one big flaw. You can only get teams that the current signed inn user is a member of. It does not help to be a global admin.
                                      For now you have to rely on using office 365 groups commandlets to check if a group is Teams enabled.

                                      • 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.
