  1. Restrict ability to start new conversation (thread)

    It would be helpful to restrict the ability to start a new conversation to specific users in the channel.
    This would allow those users to post conversation starters and others could only reply.
    Since the focus in channels defaults to the "start new conversation", most users do not realize they are not actually replying to a previous conversation.

  2. applocker

    Deploying this to the user's profile make administration of the application for AppLocker problematic. Especially if it is self-updating. Any file hash or certificate rules would be subject to change without notice.

  3. Manage Guest and External access per team

    It would be a great feature to be able to manage guest and external access on a per-team basis! Guest access is enabled on the tenant level, External Access as well. Then on team-level I can prohibit the guest or external users...

  4. 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

  5. Time out session - keep me signed in

    Are there please any session timeouts (after which you have to sign in again) for Teams web client, Windows desktop app and mobile applications? I have been able to find this article, but there is unfortunately nothing about Teams.

  6. Hability to setup the default site collection on SharePoint

    It should be possible to setup where the Teams Sites are being created!
    For the moment its using the default site collection and this is something that in my opinion should be possible to define the site colleciton to use.
    or has an workaround to be able to disable the default "Files" option to avoid the creation of a subsite in a collection that is not intended to be used.

  7. Enable users to disable the link preview feature

    Users and/or the tenant admin should be able to disable the link preview feature. This is especially important for organizations that use Teams for collaboration and share cyber threat intelligence. The auto fetching of links can inadvertently tip off a potential attacker that they have been discovered by a security team.

    See this Tweet thread for additional context.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Moderate Channels and limit private chat options

    I konw that there is a possibility to disable chat feature to students, but it would be great to have the hability have private chats onlyu with teachers.
    Another great feature would be give teachers the hability to moderate channels conversations, for example post a comment only after teacher has revised it. Also this feature will be great if it is limited to certain channels.

  11. 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.

  12. Add remove access from users for a channel

    Hi, When we create a team for a department, e.g. IT, we add all user within the team. but there should be able to create a channel and exclude specific users from that channel as they might not be the audience for that.

  13. Improve third party file integration: make it off by default; make the settings available at both the tenant and team level & easier to find

    The comments at https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/Microsoft-Teams-adds-third-party-file-integration/ba-p/80880 are all going nuts about:

    1) The fact that the integration was pushed live by default, opening up the door to shadow IT without active consent.

    2) The setting should be controllable both that the tenant level (to allow or shut down access globally), and at the team level (so if it is allowed at the tenant level, team owners would have the the option to allow or disallow it for their specific team).

    3) People struggle to find the settings that control this buried in the 365 admin center. I first looked in the Teams…

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  19. Collapse the sections

    Please make the wiki sections able to collapse. You can collapse the menu but not the actual sections. It's to difficult to find information when you have to search through all text. collapse to section titles would make that easier. Then you could expand when you found the information you wanted.
    Please add this feature in addition to the move up or move down features.

  20. 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.
