  1. Allow Teams Meeting Host to Toggle Meeting Entry Exit Tones Conference Bridge Settings

    As an O365 global admin there is no way to let my Teams users toggle these audio conferencing meeting preferences themselves.

    There is only a global setting in the Teams/Skype admin portal that lets me turn on/off these audio conference bridge settings for the entire tenant. My users need to be able to modify these settings like they could in Skype for business.

    If I was hosting a large Teams meeting and running a webinar you can see how disruptive entrance and exit tones would be as participants come and go. The problem is that I can't just disable them…

  2. Global Setting for Enable "Teams" to Start Minimized

    Provide the ability to start the Teams application in the background and minimized on a global scale, not only per each user's setting.

  3. Default tab in Teams

    Tabs in teams

    When opening a channel in Teams it starts by default with 'Chats' and this can't be changed.
    Please make it possible to choose your default tab
    (I normally use the tab 'Documents' and almost never use 'Chats')

  4. Provide Option to Set Microsoft Audio Conferencing Personal Identification Number (PIN)

    For Microsoft Audio Conferencing users, the Microsoft Teams meeting invitation includes a "Reset PIN" link - https://mysettings.lync.com/pstnconferencing. After logging onto the Office 365 Portal, the user is presented with a "Reset PIN" button that generates a new random Personal Identification Number. Can you please give the user the option to reset his\her PIN to a number of his\her choosing provided it meets the defined length requirement and basic complexity requirements (non-repeating, non-sequential)?

  5. Settings options to hide or show Team in Outlook

    Teams are not shown in the Global address list and under groups in Outlook by default. In order to change this, we need to run a PowerShell command. It would be great to have an option in the Teams settings to show or hide the team from Outlook, so the Team Owner can change the settings instead of requiring PowerShell

  8. Allow turning off automatic spell checking

    Please add the ability to turn off the "check spelling as I type" feature in the Microsoft Teams Windows app. I use the web app instead of the Windows app simply because I cannot turn off this feature in the Windows app. My opinion is probably in the minority, but I find automatic, real-time spell checking (with the squiggly red lines) to be the most annoying feature ever implemented in any computer program -- even worse than "Clippy" the Windows paperclip help assistant.

  9. Can we please have the ability to delete conversations. This does not make sense that you cannot reset or remove a conversation.

  10. Conversation listing most recent at the top

    There should definitely be an option in settings to reverse the date order of the conversations so that the most recent is at the top vs. scrolling down. If we are to use this efficiently, that has to be an option outside of filtering.

  11. Ability to choose location for file downloads

    Any file is downloaded to the 'Downloads' folder on the computer. It would be great if the user could specify or choose which folder to download the file to.

  12. Auto-start: Provide way for MSI installer to customize default setting

    We use the MSI installer to deploy Teams in our organization. We would like all computers to have Teams, but do not want Teams to auto-start by default. We would like a way of installing such that the default setting for "Auto-start application" is turned off.

  13. expand conversations default option

    Add USER setting to expand all by default.

    There's an existing idea for Collapsing/expanding conversations where it looks like they're working on implementing an Admin setting for collapse/expand, and a collapse/expand all button.

    However, many of the comments on that idea are asking for something different:

    Give us a USER-configurable option (not just admins) for whether threads are shown expanded or collapsed.

    I feel like I spend most of my time catching up in Teams clicking "N replies from ..." or "See more" and would much prefer for everything to be shown by (my user-configured) default.

    Even if this option…

  15. Support for 24-hour time (Military time)

    My desktop is set to use 24-hour time so I see "16:40" instead of "4:40 PM". Teams should reflect this behavior or at least allow a way to set it as such.

  16. Disable startup option

    Like Skype, it would be great if there was a setup option to not start on Windows Startup. Reason being, when on laptop, do not want lots of applications running that I dont need when on battery power. Saves time and frustration to not have these applications autostart. I can start them when I need them but not before.

  17. I would love if it the teams tab had an option to organize how conversations show up. I am referring to date, continuing conversations, etc.

    Teams tab needs an option to organize how conversations display. Give us options sort by date of first posted, conversations you are in involved in, on going conversations, etc.

    Build an option to filter how conversations display because it seems like a jumbled mess right now!

  18. fix notification settings

    The notification settings in the current version are buggy.
    Firstly all notification settings are blank, as you can see in the attachment.
    Secondly when you try to set a setting it disappears again after a second.
    Please fix that.

  20. Change keyboard shortcut

    We need functionality to customize keyboard shortcuts to resolve following problem.

    Many of keyboard shortcuts are not giving same user experience like other MS apps, and we would like to customize them.

    For example, our developer heavily use VSCode, and we are expecting Command + P will open search, and Command + Shift + } will switch to next channel.
