  2. Wall of fame for praises

    We like to praise people in our organization. It is a great way to show appreciation for extrodinary contribution and boosts team performance. However, at current it kind of gets lost while chats continue. I find it should not, as praises are well deserved and should sustain. My suggestion is to implement some sort of „wall of fame“ in Teams that displays all praises assigned to people over time. Could be filtered by time, people, kind of praise etc.

  5. Adding contacts to Favorites/folders

    Like in Skype, we should be able to just click on a contacts name and add them to favorites or any other folders. The current process of opening the folder, then adding a contact to it is very cumbersome and not at all user friendly

    Please update TEAMS chat so we can reorder the people within a Contacts Group. Right now the chat group list is fixed to the order in which people are added and you cannot reorder them. This makes it very difficult to find someone if you have a large group since the list cannot be alphabetized unless you specifically create the list that way in the first place.

  9. Allow participants to re-enter the Lobby

    It would be helpful if participants were able to temporarily re-enter the lobby as a holdng space, eg. when they are excluded from the discussion for a limited period. They could then be re-admitted when the discussion is complete.

    Currently partiipants have to exit completely, then recieve seperate contact to say they are allowed to dial in again. If they accidentally or maliciously dial back in early they are able to bypass the lobby and re-enter the meeting when they should not have access, which is a security concern.

  10. disable people pane for participants

    We want the ability to disable the People/Participant pane, for meeting attendees (so just the host can see this). It is vital as we have meetings which need to be blinded to the identities of other attendees

  11. Change display names

    Owner or member needs to be able to change the display name. I have students who are transgender and their name shows up as their birth name. This is extremely confusing to other students and not exactly comfortable for the student who needs their name changed. This is also a problem for people who go by middle names or change their surnames.

  12. Sort Contacts By Last Name

    Who thought it was a good idea to sort Team Contacts by "First" name? Sorting ANY list of names by last name isn't revolutionary, it's the default.

  13. Organise Teams into Groups (not just 'favourites' and 'more')

    On the left tab of the teams desktop, where all the teams are you have the option of adding a team to favourites and the remainder stays under "more" (essentially creating 2 groupings).

    Please could you add a functionality where I can customise this, add more groupings. I am part of a couple of teams now and the OCD in me wants to group them and organise them (and collapse and expand etc.)

    E.g. Favourites, Sales Teams, Development Teams etc.

    Thanks for the consideration

  18. Give users the ability to override the Initials Icon with the correct initials, display name and/or picture.

    Give users the ability to override the Initials Icon with the correct initials, display name and/or picture. Also, the Initials Icon is sometimes backwards when working in applications within the teams environment. For example, sometimes my initials are displayed correctly as JS and other times, I will see SJ instead.

  19. Use @ mention for outgoing email

    Please add the possibility that users are able to post a conversation or a reply to people or distribution groups, that are OUTSIDE of the team. In other words, it's an outgoing chat that is delivered by Email. This can be done by using the @-letter followed by a full Email-Address.
    People outside the team that get this Email could reply via Email as well because the sender address is the Team-Channel-Email-address.
    This feature will enhance Interoperability with Messaging heavily.
    Additionally the post could be flagged with a fitting "outgoing-"banner or text something else, to show Teams user, that this…
