  1. 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.

  2. Set Expiration Policy Based on Inactivity

    We would like an expiration policy based on inactivity, where if a team is inactive after a certain amount of time, it is auto-deleted.

  5. Fire whoever built the installer.

    Seriously an installer that calls an installer to install into the user profile then opens the program full screen. Configuration in a json file that can't be easily be managed at an enterprise level? What the **** is going on in quality control over there?

  6. 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.

  7. 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 ??

  10. 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.

    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.

  12. 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…

  13. 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…

  18. Follow Skype for Business License for Chat in Teams

    I work in the education sector and have over 1 million licenses we look after. 99% of these are not licensed to use skype for business because they do not want users to be chatting during lessons (K-12). This is for esafety reasons and prevent bullying when teh school dont have the time or resources to monitor this. For those that have, they can get a copy of the conversation history as it is stored in teh users mailboxes.

    Teams does not follow any of this and some of my larger customers will not adopt Teams until the chat facility…

  19. 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…

  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
