  1. Allow application settings to be administered via Registry / GPO or add to Tenant

    Teams needs to have the capability to be managed like the rest of the O365 suite via Registry and/or GPO settings. Things like Startup at login, Start minimized to tray, suppressing the app launch splash screen, suppressing the 'install mobile app' banner, t-bot, app add-ins should all be manageable and in one place.

  2. 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.

  3. Outbound Number Manipulations per PSTN Device

    In skype for business server, we had the ability to write "Called Number Translation Rules" and "Calling Number Translation Rules" for each PSTN gateway.

    There is no functionality to do this in Teams, so for each SBC I need to translate the powerful regex and translation statements that were available in Skype Server into the SBC.

    I feel this is a huge functional oversight.

  4. Deploy teams as part of ODT

    Can Teams be included in ODT deployment just as rest of the Office ProPlus apps?

  5. It would be good to be able to copy folder structures, so when setting up a template team and copying it, you don't have to re-do

  6. Ability to set multiple user roles / tags

    Add an ability for team admin/owner to assign one or more "roles" to team members.

    E.g. User1 will have role1, role2, role3
    User2 will have role2, role4

    In a channel, I can @role2 and all users with that role tag will be notified.

    In addition to setting roles, the admin can also set channel permissions depending on the role.

    E.g. channel1 is only read-access to role1 and role2 (they cannot post)
    channel2 is full access to role1, read-access to role3

    Hint: Similar to Discord :D

  7. Add Option to disable Chat with Guests

    Our customer uses guest access but they do not want their users to be chatting directly with guests that were added to Teams.

    Ideally this option should limit guest users from being able to to do P2p chats and also limit Organization users from initiating p2p chats with Guests.

    The Guests should be able to chat within the teams that they were added as a guest to.

  8. Sign all DLLs Installed/Used By Microsoft Teams

    The folder "%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\Teams\current\resources\app.asar.unpacked\node_modules" contains DLLs that are not signed by any publisher.

    We use AppLocker for Application Whitelisting and block unknown DLLs. Since MS Teams is installed into the user profile, we have whitelisted the other signed DLLs. However, the unsigned DLLs cannot be safely whitelisted since they are not signed.

    All Microsoft products, including MS Teams, should sign all code that is produced, especially since this is being installed into the user's profile.

    Thanks.

  9. Conference Audio / Video Minutes Report

    Promoting use of Microsoft Teams.
    Therefore, I want to extract the frequency of using Teams.

    In Skype for Business, the activity report calculates the meeting participation time.
    This item.

    ・ Organized Conference Audio / Video Minutes
    ・ Participated Conference Audio / Video Minutes

    In Microsoft Teams, you can see how many meetings have been held and attended.
    You can check for each user.
    However, the time is not calculated in the list.

    This does not give you any insight into how Microsoft Teams is being used.
    We hope that reports will be enhanced to promote the use of Microsoft Teams.

  10. Add messaging permissions to the teams powershell module

    Please add the ability to set "Only owners can post messages" to the Microsoft Teams powershell module.

    This is mostly needed from a Teams for Education perspective.

  11. Restrict the information that is visible to guest users

    Users are allowed to see contact information by clicking on a user's icon or on a mentioned user.
    If a guest user joins a team, he is able to see contact information of the team members.
    That'll be nice if users are allowed to restrict the information that is visible to the guest user in order to protect security and privacy.

    e.g.

    Type of information: Available to Internal users: Available to External users:
    Company YES YES
    Title YES NO
    Department YES NO

  12. Ability for Company Admins to provide a Company Guidline or Help URL for Users when they are creating a Team.

    Microsoft Teams Needs the ability for Company Admins to provide a Company Guideline or Help URL when creating a Team.

    The feature would be something like when an providing an admin option in the Office 365 Admin Center for the Admin to type in a Team Creation Guide Line Message and URL.

    And once this is enabled then a message banner would be displayed on the create team page encouraging them to read the company guidelines before creating a team.

    The guidelines itself would suggest to the user for the naming standards and when to make a channel or when…

  13. Teams function with Sharepoint On-prem

    Make it possible to link Teams with an existing SharePoint onprem.
    Because not every Userdata and DB values could be legally uploaded(in Cloud) in some countrys. Data security is sometimes much more Importen for each files/entrys. (and companys)

  14. Groups within Teams

    If groups could be defined within teams these groups could then be ideally be used to
    * Focus communications
    * Limit access to channels and content
    This grouping should be reflected in underlying SharePoint however the ability to define this in Teams would be more user friendly

  15. 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 a member,…

  16. 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.

  17. Add our own policy links

    We would like to be able to post our own links to our legal and privacy policies and not have it go to the Microsoft ones.

    Also, would be great if there would be a feature to force new users to check off that they have read the policy (like in Yammer).

  20. machine installer - NO MORE INSTALLS IN APPDATA!

    @Warren

    Your "completion" of the most upvoted request: "improve Install options - Install for all users and install location" is a complete joke. Having an MSI install in Program Files that just turns around and installs another executable in every user's AppData is hack-kneed at best. It's a band-aid over a dumpster fire. Get the exe out of AppData. APPS BELONG IN PROGRAM FILES. You haven't addressed the dozens or hundreds of redundant copies made in every profile on a shared workspace. USERS DON'T GET TO INSTALL EXE's IN APPDATA! PERIOD! We will not install Teams until you fix this…
