  1. Usage of Teams once, breaks ability to use Skype

    Dear Admins, please get on the same page as your design teams and support staff, they’re giving users contradicting information.

    I just had a conversation with Microsoft Support about the ability for a Skype user to talk to a Teams user…basically at this time there is no such thing as interoperability despite their documentation regarding coexistence modes.

    The very minute a user even tries Teams just once…they break the ability to use Skype to talk to you if you’re using Teams. Apparently it’s been in this broken state for months and is “by design.”

    Here’s the quote from the rep,…

    • Pin a Thread

      Give the admin of the channel the ability to pin a thread. For example, a welcome post that gives the new members all the information they need about the team.

      • Teams notifications have stopped working for current chat

        Microsoft Teams has stopped showing notifications for your 'current' conversation (the currently selected chat in Teams, where the history is visible). Notifications appear as normal for other chats, but if you get further responses to the 'current' chat - and the window is either hidden, minimised, or closed completely and running the background - then you get no notification (toast, or flashing in the taskbar) and the new conversation isn't bolded in the left sidebar of Teams where the chats are listed.

        • Provide a much more obvious indicator that a Team has "Guests"

          My organization is EXTREMELY worried that a user may post something in a Team that has Guests without realizing external Customers may be in the Team. We are using the nomenclature that a Team name in ALL CAPS is a Team with external people, but it would be great if we could turn on a Banner on Posts (similar to the "This post will be seen by 65 people") in red or yellow so it's very very apparent that you are posting something external people can see.

          • Control "public connectivity to Free Microsoft Teams

            Skype for Business Online allows administrators to control "public IM connectivity" on the admin portal.
            Microsoft Teams also should allow administrators to control "public connectivity to free Microsoft Teams" on the admin portal.
            O365 users worry that home users can install free Microsoft Teams on thier PCs and invite O365 users to their teams.
            O365 users are more likeiy to wrongly upload confidential information to the free teams.

            • Delete Private Chat threads

              This request is for the ability to completely delete a private chat thread. (Not hide/archive.)

              Again, this was pulled out into its own topic because it is still under review and no decision has been made.

              To recap what has already been completed from the other topic:

              1. Delete your own messages anywhere in Teams.
              2. Team Owners can choose if users can edit/delete in their tenant as well as choose if admins have the power to delete any message posted in public channels.
              3. The ability to hide your private chat threads (these are not the chat threads in…

              • Allow rearranging contacts and groups

                The new contact list is now live but it's missing the ability to rearrange contacts and groups by drag and drop like you can now do with teams and recent conversations.

                I have quite a few contacts and large groups so sorting them would be very useful.

                • partial thread expansion

                  Allow expanding just the last few comments in a thread, rather than always expanding the whole thing. A thread w/ ~200 replies takes 4-5 seconds to expand completely saturating 1 CPU core and then requires scrolling down through it all to get to the recent replies. This is particularly inconvenient if you are frequently switching channels or between Team view and Chat view as all threads are repopulated collapsed whenever you return to a channel.

                  We should be able to expand only the unread messages or 20 or so at a time.

                  • Chat notifications not coming through (in background)

                    I have noticed when I have a chat open and I open another application over Teams the notifications do not come through. So I have no idea wether or not I recieved a new message. The only way I get notifications from that chat is when I open another chat or just go to any other place in Teams.

                    So to summarise, when I have a chat open and I open another application over Teams, I no longer recieve notifications of said chat.

                    Could this be fixed/implemented?

                    I'm not sure wether this is a bug or not.

                    • Allow service numbers from a SIP trunk via Teams Direct Routing

                      Could you please add support for service numbers (usable with auto attendant or call queues) that come from a SIP trunk connected via Direct Routing? It doesn't make sense to support BYOT with Teams Direct Routing but not having the possibility to use the numbers on the SIP trunk as service numbers for an auto attendant or a call queue.

                        • ability to move new message to be a child of the previous message

                          The most frequent mistake made in our usage of Teams channels is that everyone will eventually post a new message when they intended to reply to the latest message. Even those of us that have made the mistake before will make it again.

                          It would be great if there was an option against a new message to associate it with the previous message. This would save any hassle of removing the message and reposting it as a child of the previous message.

                          • -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled = true when created from Teams?

                            A recent update has changed -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled from default false to default true when Office 365 group is created by Teams. I would like an option for the user who creates the team to set this value upon creation. Our users need to use the O365 group as well as the team created in Teams. With this value set to true they cannot use the email functionality of the O365 group unless I use powershell to change the value every time someone creates a new team in Teams.

                            This post was created because of a suggestion from support and the information…

                            • We have office for business & WANT teams education for our internal & external courses

                              We area global training team with a large reach to internal and external audiences and really want to use the new fucnations within Teams Education. When we asked attempted to turn on these great new features our IT team stated Office for Business doesn't include Teams Education. We have been pushing Office 365 capabilities and assignments is a perfect use case and much more that would be simply integrated into our courses vs using external software options that don't work with our other native Office 365 products.

                                  Raising this again as Microsoft closed the previous request, saying it was complete even though it was not. (link below)

                                  Teams should install to the program files directory, not the users AppData.

                                  And NO, the answer is not to put a copy of the MSI in Pogram Files and deploy to the users AppData when they login.

                                  • When recording a meeting, record the screen that is being shared.

                                    We just recorded a meeting for our team. No one used their cameras, but we were all watching someone's screen being shared to follow along with the code example. The recorded meeting only shows the icons of folks on the team, it does not show the screen we were all watching.

                                      • Notifications on MacOSX - Use Notifications Manager

                                        Please use the OSX-native Notifications mechanism build into the OS for MS Teams notifications. In this way, you will allow Teams users to manage Notifications in the same way as they do all other OSX apps.
