  1. 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

    • Tool tips for Close and Minimize remain on the screen

      Minimize and Close button tips remain on the screen after clicking each respective button. The only way to get them to go away is to either bring Teams back into focus or kill and restart the application. It is super annoying.

        Hi all — quick update on this. I know its been super annoying for you — I’m so sorry!

        Good news, we’ve implemented a fix and its been validated internally. We should be deploying it in our next release cycle. I’ll let you know when its live.

        Sincerely,
        Suphatra

      • Channel adding error: "An error has occurred while creating the channel."

        When attempting to create another channel in a Team the error message appears:
        "An error has occurred while creating the channel."
        No further info, and restarting or refreshing Teams does not resolve it.

        • Video and Screensharing Bug

          When initiating a video call, I receive an error message which states video and screensharing will not work for me and that I should check my video drivers. I have the latest version of Microsoft Teams (v1.0.00.15151, 64-bit) and my webcam works for other video call and screensharing services, so I'm confident my video drivers are up-to-date. Some users I work with do not have this same problem, but I am aware that others are experiencing the same issue I am. I am running Windows 10 on a Dell Latitude E6540 laptop.

            Hi again everyone, thanks for your patience on this bug.

            We’ve identified the issue — Chromium Renderer and the latest build of Electron are affecting this issue — and we are working to put a fix in place by end of the month (August). I’ll let you know if that date slips, but so far its looking much better than it did a month ago when we were assessing the problem.

            Let me know if you have any questions and thank you again for your patience and support of Teams!

            Suphatra

          • Just a Brown Hand

            Hello, it's 2017. Teams needs to start supporting multiple skin colors in emoji. Why is the default for thumbs-up, shaking hands, and all other "realistic" emoji still white?

            These little things matter, especially now that Teams is available in Office 365 Education tenants. Our young students deserve to see emoji that represent them. Slack is way ahead of Teams on inclusive design: https://medium.com/@uxdiogenes/just-a-brown-hand-313db35230c5

            • Cannot copy-paste to Microsoft Teams

              Hi,

              We detected a bug on multiple PCs in Teams desktop version. When text is being pasted to Teams nothing happens. The same text is being pasted regularly in other apps and browsers and it works.

              This issue also happens when multiple lines of text is being copied from a Teams group or channel to let's say Microsoft Word. If you want to copy and paste the text back from MS Word to Teams, it just doesn't work.

              This happens to all text that has any space in between the characters or at the end of the sentence. Or if…

              • initiate group call from mobile

                right now what blocks our option to deploy teams to all users is the fact that group calls can't be started from the mobile apps . it's a great start that now it's possible to join a meeting from mobile but not enough .

                    • Make Subject line visible by default on new conversations

                      When starting a NEW conversation in a Channel, the subject line should be displayed by default and not hidden underneath the rich text expand button. Subject lines are very useful not only to let people know what that conversation is about, but also for searching later to return to the conversation after it has scrolled away some. We've enforced this on a few times internally using the honor system and have seen considerable success with keeping conversations on topic and getting people using the threading features.

                      You wouldn't send an email without a Subject would you? Why should Teams be…

                      • ios notifications "lock screen"

                        It would be great if the Microsoft Teams iPhone App provided notifications on the lock screen when new chat messages arrived. Without this, using Teams for one on one messaging is not effective.

                          It would be great to have a filter in teams for @me, so the user can distinguish between general @-notifcations and personal notifications.

                            We tried to create new fresh channel but it's state is weird. We cannot post any message (error appears with 'Try again' and 'Delete' options) or event delete the channel to try creating it again. The only thing we can see is spinning circle on the top.

                            • Complete Skype for Business Integration into Teams

                              Honestly, this is a tall order due to the fact that Teams was not launched this way in the first place, but my real world experience, and feedback from the field, is that having Skype-for-Business-like functions in Teams (chat/Presence/etc) be separate from Skype for Business itself is not only confusing for many users, but inhibits adoption. Users want to consolidate the number of apps they use, not increase it. I personally find this to be true.

                              Teams is an incredible tool with so much potential, but living and breathing in Skype for Business, like so many of us do, Teams…

                              • Make a post or comment Actionable

                                Had an interesting use case pop up today -- one of my team members sent a review request as an email to the team with a link to a Teams-based document. When I asked why she sent an email, she said she considers email to be more "visible" than things in Teams, and that sometimes things are lost in Teams.

                                Further investigation concluded that if we had the ability to convert conversations or bits of conversations into actionable items and add reminders/notifications to those somehow, the tool would be infinitely easier to use.

                                I think it is critical to have…

                                  • Incorrect status in teams

                                    We have noticed that our Teams statuses are consistently incorrect. Even when some team members are active in Teams they are shown as "away" or "offline". For example, although I can see that my status is "active", my colleagues see my status as "offline".

                                    Can you please fix this bug?

                                    • Copy & Paste is tempermental

                                      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 means I can't do something as simple as pasting in a paragraph from an email, which I can definitely do in Skype for Business...

                                      • Add our own policy links

                                        We would like to be able to post our own links to our legal and privacy policies and not have it go to the Microsoft ones.

                                        Also, would be great if there would be a feature to force new users to check off that they have read the policy (like in Yammer).

                                        • Add ability to create/modify teams with PowerShell

                                          The lack of any options for creating/modifying teams with PowerShell makes it much harder to support.

                                          In my company, users will not be able to create teams themselves due to business requirements but will need to submit a request for a team to be created. As Office 365 administrators, we would rather use a PowerShell script to automate this than do it manually in the GUI.

                                          The same is true for updating existing teams - our options are very limited when it comes to modifying an existing team that we are not an owner of. With other Office 365 services,…
