    • Reporting Capabilities

      We are after reporting capabilities to capture granular detail on activity within Teams.

      We would like to have data capturing:
      1. Number of users enabled
      2. Number of daily active unique users
      3. Breakdown of devices uniquely used
      4. Number of teams created
      5. Number of teams deleted
      6. How many instant messages sent overall in the Chat
      7. How many calls made in Teams
      8. Number of files shared in channels
      9. How many combined ‘likes’ have been made over a period of time

      • Mute a channel or chat

        I'd love to keep groups/channels in my list, but mute a channel so I don't get those. I get notified whenever some tags a channel eg @General, it's super distracting!

        Also would like the possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received for a user that chooses to mute some group chat.

        • Copy & Paste is tempermental

          Users reporting multiple copy/paste issues for text:

          1. Can't paste multi-messages. Often, only the first line pastes, the rest disappear. As one user puts it: "On the Windows 10 desktop client it is nearly impossible to copy multiple messages from the chat history. A fraction of a second after letting go of the mouse, the highlight collapses down to a single message."

          2. Can't paste in general: "Copy & Paste is tempermental, when i try to paste text in from other sources it simply doesn't paste, but then if I only copy a few (3-6) words then it does. It…

          • Guest access should be implemented at the Channel level

            Once I enabled guest access on the tenant I can enable guest access to a team, but I can't give guest access to a single channel. There should be a way to do this as I will now need to create a guest team and an internal team when I share teams with customers.

            • Disable Presence Status

              Implement a new presence status for people who don't like to share their presence status or a setting for users to disable presence status.
              As a German company, it is critical for us that users can decide to show their status or not.

                • Cloud Storage like Box repeatedly prompts for credentials

                  Cloud Storage like Box within Teams, keeps repeatedly prompting for credentials every 30 mins to 1 hour. Please renew the token silently before it expires. This will ease Users to access their files in Box.

                  • fix notification settings

                    The notification settings in the current version are buggy.
                    Firstly all notification settings are blank, as you can see in the attachment.
                    Secondly when you try to set a setting it disappears again after a second.
                    Please fix that.

                    • Add Guests without any Office 365 account for

                      If you want to compete with Slack or Rocketchat (and you should as they are displacing email), you will need to allow non Microsoft accounts holder to join as guest. The proportion of the public committed to using MS Office is diminishing. In any cross organization team there will be people who do not have Office. if such a team member is crucial to the team, they will not be able to use MS Teams. In fact, most people who build teams will not use a product where this is a risk, even if the situation has not arisen. In…

                      • Make Teams links open in the desktop app

                        When someone shares a MS Teams link with me, when I click to open it is opened in my browser (with a suggestion to download the app at the top) even though I have the desktop app already open and have been using it.

                        Teams links should open in the desktop app if the user has the desktop app.

                          • Ability to check call quality ahead of calls/meetings

                            Skype for Business has a way to check your call quality so you can hear how you sound. Teams really needs this as well. I've had a few calls where I can hear the audience clearly, however they say my audio quality is poor.

                            I'd like the ability check and see how I sound before I join a Teams meeting or make a call.

                            • Improved search that searches through everything

                              If I´m trying to use Teams as my main hub of communications it would be handy if teams search can search for anything and everything.

                              It would search my emails, files, chats, team discussions, groups, sharepoint etc. Basically the extent of my O365 reach.

                              To many times a file can´t be found as you can´t remember where you put it, to many times you can´t remember if the discussion was via teams, email or chat etc.

                                Provide the capability across Office 365 (SharePoint, OneDrive, Delve, Sway, Stream...) to share a piece of content in Teams. This would share a link to the piece of content, not upload a copy.

                                  Microsoft Teams indicates that I can add external members: "You can also add people outside your organization as guests by typing their email addresses.". However, when I try to add an external member with an Office 365 work account, I get an error message "You are not authorized".

                                  • Add a Print feature to the PDF file viewer

                                    Currently when you click on a PDF within teams it displays it in teams' built-in PDF viewer - but there is no option to print from here.

                                    To print you either have to download the file and open it in an external PDF viewer application or click 'open online' and print it from your browser. (or open the sharepoint in file explorer...)

                                    It would be great if a 'Print' button could instead be added to the PDF file viewer taskbar (see attached artists' rendition). Printing a PDF is a staple everyday task performed by countless people around the world.

                                    • Unable to enter accentuated characters from the ALT+<code> method

                                      A couple of months ago, there was a bug about not being able to enter accentuated characters from the ALT+<code> method (ex. ALT+130 = é) but it was eventually fixed.

                                      A couple of minutes ago, there was an update that issue is now back.

                                        • Eliminate "Context" Switching from Guest Feature

                                          The new guest feature is a great start, but it feels more like a bolt-on than a core part of the experience. I'd like to see you be able to converse/collaborate as a guest in other organizations without needing to switch between tenants.

                                          Each context switch takes several seconds and is disruptive, I know I'm being picky here, but I believe this would help keep the end user experience smooth and drive adoption.

                                          Thanks!
