  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Allow browsers other than IE to signup for the Teams uservoice forum

    When using Edge or Chrome to signup for the Microsoft Teams uservoice forum it's not possible to accept the terms of service and therefore sign up. It's fine using IE.

    By comparison, the Visual Studio uservoice forum will allow signup with Chrome and Edge.

  5. go ahead and log in

    Hi,
    I've been using teams for a while, but since my last password change I can't log in. The windows application is continually stuck at "Go ahead and log in." I've uninstalled, reinstalled, cleared my credential cache of all msteam* items. I can't seem to get in regardless of anything of tried. I can still log in through the web application, but the windows app is not working at all.
    Thanks,
    Jon

  6. 10 Minute Rapid sign up

    Let's suppose I am in one of the following situations:

    * I'm a teacher or lecturer with a class full students.
    * I'm at a conference doing a presentation

    I want to create a team and add all the people as members. Which would be doable if I had a list of everyone's email. But often teachers don't have instant access to all of their students email addresses. Rarely would presenters know the emails of all the guests.

    At present I could get a link for my team. Then convert that to QR code then project that on the wall…

  7. Explain what the product does

    I'd like to learn what the product does. I did not find a Help link within the window of the product. The product was imposed on me through some project within my company. I do not understand the purpose of Microsoft Teams - it seems like a chat application. What is the benefit?!

  8. interface is vey poor

    App will not open to recent chats. It is not customizable in that way. It will not let you delete a channel. When you click "Chats", it won't show your Team chats, only these private ones. The Activity screen doesn't show you recent team chats. The app is called "Teams" for goodness sake. But the hardest thing to get to is the most basic team chat. WhatsApp, Messenger, GroupMe, and basically all text apps have this simplicity. You're Microsoft! You should do much much better with this.

  9. Teams Overview

    Why don't you start with a flow diagram or road map of what the product is comprised and what each component in the system is connected and what it accomplishes. Seems I have to draw my own overview diagrams to understand the new app based applications.

  10. Intrusive.

    Intrusive. Hard to uninstall. The fact it showed up on my computer without warning meant I deleted it straight away. It was hard to remove. This made me frustrated and mad and thus I will never use it and tell everyone I know not to use it.

    Try less aggressive tactics for reaching a user base.

  11. Help should spawn a floating window

    Help should spawn a floating window, the way Office programs work. It's annoying to have to go back an forth in a single window while learning to use teams.
    I read the instructions click a link to try a step and the instructions disappear.

  12. 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?

  13. Please indicate the app is syncing so it's clear it's not broken

    I searched the web for minutes thinking my account was broken but it turns out it was just syncing for the first time, indicating that I was not on any teams or any chats despite being on several for many days before using the mobile app.

    PLEASE JUST ASSUME THAT THINGS AREN'T PERFECT IN YOUR APP AND IF IT'S HAVING TROUBLE SYNCING JUST PLEASE TRUST THAT THE USER CAN HANDLE SUCH SHOCKING INFORMATION WITHOUT KNOWINGLY MISINFORMING THE USER AS TO WHETHER THEY ARE OR ARE NOT ON A TEAM

  15. New user onboarding and training

    I am a new user, having used a decade of Skype and others for group interactions. There is no good onboarding support for new users.

  16. coachmark

    Coachmark should detect policies assigned to user. Example, don't give a coachmark for calling when calling is disabled for the said user

  18. 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…

  20. 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.
