  1. Delve integration into Teams

    Maybe I am one of the few, but I like Delve for search...
    So I am missing Delve in Teams :-(

    Either in the list that get exsposed when you hit "Files" to the left, would kind of make sence
    recent/teams/OneDrive/downloads/Delve
    :-)

    But Delve is more then file search, you would like to use Delve to search/browse people as well. So it might be better to make a left-side tab for Delve.

    Yes, I know you could search for people in the chat tab, but not very Delve-like experience :-)

  2. External Contacts Not Displayed with 'Friendly Name'

    Please provide a way to rename a Contact, or have a Contact displayed with a 'user-friendly' name.

    External Contacts are displayed with an unfriendly name (it appears to be their SMTP address). Typically there is no easy way to determine the person with just this address when looking for their entry in the Contacts list. We previously used Skype For Business and this displayed external contacts with a Friendly Name but after we were forced into using Teams, this functionality was lost.

  3. Option to hide the profile pictures of contacts within MS Teams.

    The ability to hide profile pictures of contacts is available in Skype for Business. This option would be great for MS Teams and other applications as well.

  4. Allow guests to change avatar and description

    It doesn't seem like a guests can change their avatar or information such as job title or location. When you have a lot of guests in your team having a picture and job title would be very useful.

  5. Bulk add team members via .csv file

    Since this item seems to have died on the vine with an incorrect answer ("We have this" - no you don't), trying to revive it. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18240376-improve-add-members-to-team

    Allow bulk adding of team members via .csv file.

    Team Owners should not have to create a Distribution list or be an administrator to run PowerShell to bulk add users to a team.

  7. Custom badge or status for community management

    Teams is a fantastic place to run a Community of Interest/Practice - but it would be even better if there was a way to 'credit' community managers - the ability for an administrator to be able to assign badges or status to people that put up their hand to help with community management would be amazing - even if it was something small like a ring around their profile pic?

    I've seen a similar request around badges for student progress - shows there are more use cases for this type of feature?

    Thanks for the ability to put in feedback…

  8. Modularity in phone numbers in contact card

    We are trying to set the mobile phone number as the per defaut number in Teams instead of the office number but we cannot.

    It has been confirmed by Support.

    It would be an interesting feature to have.

    Thanks

  9. Chat > Contacts > Import a group of contacts from 365 Groups/Distribution List

    In SfB, I used to be able to add a distribution list as a contact. This resulted in the whole list of contacts within that list to be added within a group on my Contacts list.

    In Teams, this doesn't seem possible. Can this be developed and implemented?

  10. contacts list for a team

    Hi,
    within a team there can be a shared contacts list; i.e. for a specific project. Is there a way to have a shared contacts list per Team?

  13. Select multiple contacts for chat from Contacts panel

    Allow users to select more than one contact from the Contacts Panel to include in a chat rather than laboriously having to add each individual contact, one at a time, for each and every group chat.

  14. Unable to delete people from the chat/contact list in Teams

    In the Chat part of Teams, there's a contactlist which has been synced from Skye for Business but, there are people in my Teams Contact list which I have already deleted from my Skype for Business contact list.

    When I right click a contact, I only have the option "Copy" which is greyed out. I would like to have full functionality to manage my contact list, delete people, add contacts, group them into other sub-groups in contacts.

  16. Entire Organisation Org Chart Tab or export

    We love the Organisational Tab in Teams, but it's limited to that one management line.
    We'd love to be able to view an entire organizational org chart, and even the functionality to export/print.

  19. Companywide Contact-List

    In skype for Business (SfB) we were able to use the Global Adress List (GAL) to provide company wide contacts for all our employees. In teams each employee has to import the list by himself. So if we add or change contacts each employee has to do update the contacts by himself again

  20. Caller Recognition / Outlook Contact

    While able to browse Outlook contact to dial a number for outgoing calls, incoming call and history will never match an existing Outlook Contact Name but rather present the E164 Number. Not practical at all.
