  1. 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…

    • Show "viewed by" in Chat

      Should be able to show WHO HAS SEEN/VIEWED the posted message. Especially for EDU-users, with ON/OFF-option in settings for Teams-owners.

      • MAC app fails to update with standard account (needs admin creds)

        On most Macs I’ve tried, the automatic update framework is pretty aggressive, and apparently cannot be unconfigured. However, it consistently fails to update the app when I’m logged in with a standard account. The app occasionally prompts for admin creds (I assume it’s making an update helper daemon), and I supply them, but the only Helper process Teams ever runs is owned by the standard account. I’m not sure exactly what to suggest here, because there are several opportunities for change, some of which might obviate usefulness of others. Ideas might be some user interaction to defer the forced relaunch…

          Wanted to update everyone that this is in our internal rings being tested, and looking good so far. I still can’t give an exact date, but rest assured it is moving along.

          I hear your frustration, and apologize for the delay.

          Thanks,
          Alex

        • Screen share toolbar obstructing browser tabs

          Issue:
          The MS Teams screen share toolbar obstructs browser tabs in Chrome and Edge. The toolbar does auto-collapse but takes too long (approx. 5 seconds). Skype for Business' toolbar collapses almost immediately. Also the MS Teams toolbar cannot be moved as the Skype for Business one can.

          Workaround:
          Clicking the pin icon on the toolbar twice collapses it immediately but it reappears when you move the cursor near the top of the screen again

          Preferred Solution:
          Make the toolbar collapse immediately when unpinned and make it possible to move it

          • LaTeX math input

            Allow LaTeX math input into the Teams interface for Education customers.

            Currently Edmodo allows some simple LaTeX code (as complex as those that amsmath package recognises!)

            • Integration Delve Profiles in Teams

              Make Delve Profiles (own Profile and that of others) available in Teams and include profile content in Teams-Search.

              Delve Profiles are good fo showing skills and projects of our employees.

              But the Profiles and there information are not accessible in Teams which breaks our usecase.

              • 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.

                  • Team grouping organization

                    As we migrate all our regions and offices to Teams, we have started to realize that being able to identify Team's purpose adds some level of complexity.

                    We are proposing to add to the UI a way to create "Groups" and not related Teams under its correspondent group.

                    Just like we have Favorites, there would be other headings we can give names and move teams underneath of them.

                    We believe this will avoid confusion, for both experienced users and novice users.

                      • Doesn't show Audio Call start, stop, and duration on Chat

                        For some reason Audio Calls stopped recording the start and stop times, as well as duration of the Audio Call, on the Chat window. There is no record whatsoever that we switched to Audio. I still run Windows 8, so maybe it's because you're trying to pull the plug on Windows 8? :)

                          Thank you for bringing this to our attention. I want to make sure I fully understand what you are experiencing, so we can address the issue. When in an audio call, I see a timer, and once completed if I switch to the Calls tab on the left pane, I see a summary including duration & date.

                          Can you please comment below with specific details and/or send an email with screenshots and steps to teamsml@microsoft.com?

                          Thank you!

                          Currently there is no way to provide parent/guardian links to a class notebook automatically created in Teams. This feature is extremely helpful to teachers so that the parents/guardians of their students can see the work being done and submitted by their students. Please look to add this feature.

                          • Show Teams with external users in a different colour scheme

                            It would be good to have Teams with external users (guests) show up in a different colour scheme so that users are aware about internal/external groups at a glance. It will also help if there is a feature akin to Outlook Mail Tips which will indicate that content being shared in such Teams is visible to external users.

                              • Microsoft Teams download banner / popup needs to be removed

                                When a user in the Office 365 environment wants to use the web version http://teams.microsoft.com, a popup message is visible at the upper area with a prompt to install the client version:
                                “Want an even faster, more collaborative experience? Download the desktop app.” By several given security compliance requirements in big IT environments, the users shouldn’t be able to install any additional software at their PCs. This popup is confusing the web-only Teams user and also it makes the software deployment team nervous.

                                    • OSX client updates - app quits multiple times a day

                                      It seems whenever the OSX client updates, we get a “An update is ready to install. Microsoft Teams is trying to add a new helper tool.” authentication request, then the app quits. Or sometime the app just quits on it’s own without any notification. When it launches again, the “loading” box then sometimes doesn’t disappear. I really want to roll this out for our teams to start playing with, but having the app quit on us ~10 times a day without notification makes it unusable.

                                      • App crashing on iOS 12

                                        Hello, I know this is early but I just wanted to be sure you are aware that the Microsoft Teams app is crashing on startup when running on iOS 12. I know you have no obligation to get things fixed for a beta operating system, but it would be greatly appreciated :)

                                        • 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.
