  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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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?

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. Prevent Users from Joining External Tenants as Guest

    In Skype for Business we had the ability to block our users from communicating with external users. We would like the ability to block our users from joining external tenants as guest to prevent data leak.

  12. Teams Service Admin search, view, and edit all Teams in Admin Center

    I finally see the Teams widget in my Teams Admin Center but when I search for a team it sometimes retrieves no records - even when I've quadruple checked that I have the Team/Group name exactly right.

    1. Search for Teams should be a "contains" search, not a "starts with" search (that is insane, you can't expect Admins to know the exact name of a given group they are looking for)

    2. When I do get search results, I can only access teams I am a member of. So I can't do any admin tasks on teams where I'm not…

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  15. 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?

  16. 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.

  17. 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 ??
