  2. Migrate existing notebook to a new Teams

    One of the most asked questions to my IT department when helping the org with setting up Teams, it what to do with their old OneNote notebook.

    The notebook has usually been used for years, is shared with the team, and stored on an abandoned SharePoint site that no one uses, or worse - someones OneDrive.

    The new feature that allows to connect an existing notebook to a new Teams is really useful, but this does not change the fact that the notebook is still stored at the abandoned SharePoint site, not in the new Teams and not connected to…

  3. pop signin on top of app window (Mac)

    after installing Teams on Mac, the signin window should appear where I can see it and know that I am being prompted to signin. instead, the main app window with a tiny message "checking your connection" is all that is shown, creating the impression the app is hung. in reality, the signing window is hidden behind the main window.

  5. I can’t create a team using any of my iOS devices. It allows me to enter in the information but will just respond saying an error occurred

  8. family

    Teams for Microsoft Family Groups using o365 Home accounts. We have a o365 Home subscription and use the family onenote feature and the family calendar feature, it would be awesome for us to bring it all together with a Family Team.

  9. complicated

    Teams is too complicated to use for most of those people not specialists with computer, looks like it is much suitable for IT department. you know why Chinese WeChat is so popular? Just because its easy to start for everyone, even those who don't know how to type or how to use apps.

    We don't expect everyone in the company knows everything about computer, but knows his work to handle.

  10. Have a comment system with simple / non jargon categories

    * Less is more - really gets confusing when you have more than 10 to choose from and I’ll probably choose the wrong one (which will pigeon-hole my suggestion)
    * what exactly is “power bar”, “surface hub” and “VPI hub”? My guess is these are for subsets of UI issues. I’m probably sending my UI suggestions down the wrong channel.
    Does anyone outside of Microsoft know what these categories mean?

  12. Tabs: explain clearly the options for Add a Tab

    I'm using Teams for the first time today. I want to Add a Tab. The pop-up for Add A Tab has many nice graphics for "Tabs for your Team". I don't want any of those. I just want a new Tab that has identical functionality to the Files Tab already provided. Please include the option of adding another Files-type Tab (and re-naming it, of course) so I can have "Files to Edit' and "Files - Reference". Thank you.

  13. Browse Topics

    Allow a user to share a link to the Help > Browse Topics page and sub-pages. Currently, the only way to share the page is to tell the user to click Help > Browse Topics but it would be even easier if you can share this page and all sub-pages to quickly show someone how to do a specific task in Teams.

  14. Help Videos Start with Sound On (Turn off Auto-Mute)

    The Help section's Videos all start with the volume muted. Is there a design reason for this? Why the extra step to click to unmute? I would assume that users wanting to watch these videos (by clicking on them) with sound.

  15. Share more information with us, please!

    "How can you make Microsoft Teams better?"
    > This is no technical feature..

    1. More updates on top X ideas. More interaction with the people who are using the App. People who take the effort to post/vote ideas feel left out if you stop providing updates or don't respond at all. This is not just a forum that can exist without a moderator. This is an enterprise corperation's official UserVoice site. Meaning, no voice of the corporation = bad

    2. Provide an up to date roadmap. The current roadmap is great, it looks nice (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=Microsoft%20Teams%2CLaunched). Sadly most uservoice…

  16. Allow a different channel/page as a starting point

    It would be great if it were possible to make the landing page more of a welcome page, to give team members some insight into what channels are available, etc. I find it very confusing to get dumped into the conversations as the landing point.

  17. Microsoft Customer collaboration Site - leveraging the MS ecosystem

    Sorry to ask here but I couldn't find another avenue to ask.

    Does Microsoft have a community where customers collaborate with MS and partners to share best practices or ideas? If not, I would recommend you consider this type of functionality as we have found other customers or partners as an invaluable source for effective use of applications.

    Example: As I try to understand the functionality and limitations of Teams, I have a fairly simple question.

    What is recommended best practice for having a team site where you collaborate on documents and a small number of those documents need to…

  18. Microsoft Teams Free not usable/accessible

    I try to promote Microsoft Teams by recommending the usage of Microsoft Teams Free to my contact partners, especially to use the 'share the desktop' functionality.

    But none of the three persons who tried to install the Microsoft Teams Free app on their windows PC were able to get the app run. It stuck in the process of registering or creating an account. There was the massage "Sie sind noch nicht in teams aber Sie können es für Ihre organisation einrichten" and then there was a loop with always coming back to the starting page of the registering process.

    These…

  19. Skype For Business

    The whole thing needs to be much more user friendly. I've been a O365 user since 2011 and had a look at Skype FB today. Now I need counselling! Why is everything "Microsoft" so difficult?
    I develop software so I'm not an IT-phobe.
