  4. 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…

  5. 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.

  6. Modify You've Been Added to a Team email

    It would be nice to be able to modify the initial "You've Been Added to a Team" email to include links to overviews or internal support materials, best practices, etc. This will help us guide first-time users in getting started in Teams.

  9. Search for Teams Help

    Please add a Search function to the Teams Help button. The Browse / FAQ format assumes you know what will be asked.

  10. 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.

  11. Newbie Mode

    In group channels, if someone enters a message via "Type a new message" area (instead of replying to an existing thread) Teams will ask if they are sure they wish to create a new thread. (Of course the usual options in the prompt to disable asking again in the future.)

    I would also change the "Type a new message" to "Start a new thread"

    Perhaps replace the "Reply" button with a "Type a response" box.

  12. Outlook Integration - Email Draft Recipient check against Teams

    Need help on the switch from the old paradigm of communicating to a team via email to the new one using tools like teams.

    It seems people need lots of reminders, they often revert to the old habit of email even after being added to a team..

    maybe some sort of outlook/teams awareness (plugin/etc) to help encourage teams use in some cases?

    Such as:
    <outlook notification>
    All Recipients of this email are members of Team X; would you rather use MS teams (<link to team>) for this communication?

    etc.

  14. Fix the add a custom background piece, my \Uploads files are not seen as available in Teams for selection.

    Fix the add a custom background piece, my \Uploads files are not seen as available in Teams for selection.
    1.) Help search doesn't help on the issue.
    2.) The function itself isn't prominently named or displayed in options.
    3.) The google.com instructions don't help.
    4.) There isn't an obvious path revealed for user pictures in options.
    5.) I have stock patterns available, but my uploads dir only has my pictures that don't display.
    6.) Version isn't obvious, what versions can change backgrounds.
    7.) An awful large number of failures noted above for a Microsoft app.

  16. Feature to migrate SameTime contacts to Teams

    Sametime permits us to maintain 500 contacts. It's difficult to migrate all those contacts with groups and subgroups into Teams. Hence please provide a facility to migrate those contacts to the same groups and subgroups.

  17. Неочевидный интерфейс

    Неочевидный интерфейс как для нового пользователя приложения. Непонятно где, куда, зачем тыкать когда нужно позвонить, создать канал, ответит на сообщение в конце-концов...
    Непонятно как звонить в каналах;
    когда отвечаешь на звонок - первая эмоция «черт, почему включилась Камера??? Меня что, все видят???» - только потом понимаешь, что это просто возможность выбора ответа на звонок (зачем вообще это дополнительное окно? сделайте настройку по умолчанию);
    Почему нет возможности цитировать сообщения в личном чате? Да и в каналах она какая-то корявая.
    Почему я не могу просмотреть все контакты? Когда перехожу в личные чаты, вижу только «последних», чтобы добавить нового приходится писать в поиске…

  18. Docs.com article for Desktop Client Settings in desktop-settings.json/settings.json

    Official docs.com article for Desktop Client Settings in desktop-settings.json/settings.json. There is almost nothing official on these json's which control desktop client behavior. It would be good to understand more about them

  19. Blank screen after opening app

    Post the Teams logo page when the app is opened and before the channels/chat homescreen there is a blank screen moment. This is especially obvious on dark mode since the white screen of the logo is followed by a black screen followed by the app opening. Could we leave the logo page on longer and directly jump into the app instead of the blank screen please?

  20. Teams and Sharepoint

    We have started using Microsoft Teams to use the collaboration space and created several teams (which turns out to be very useful). but at the same time we have now many different Microsoft Teams and SharePoint Sites. We haven't used SharePoint before and are now considering in using SharePoint for data storage and collaboration for the whole Company. But now we'd like to have one Team Site as the starting page for all collegues. How can we connect the existing SharePoint Sites with each other?
