  1. 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.

    • 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…

        • 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.

          When adding a member to…

          • 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

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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 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.

                    • 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.

                        • 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.

                          • 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.

                            • 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.

                              • 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.

                                • 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.

                                    • Access / Permissions to files

                                      I need a means to provide different access rights or permissions per file per user. As with Gdrive, I am able to lock a file down and/or open it up on a per user basis, determined when the user is added to the team. My teams are internal and with Clients. Access for my clients is much different than for my internal resources.

                                        • Ability to check license when user added to a team.

                                          Currently, owner can add a user who do not assign license.
                                          Please add a feature to check license when user added to team.
