  1. Allow to reply to messages in a channel via Microsoft Graph

    It would be good to be able to reply to a message in a channel via Microsoft Graph rather than starting a new conversation.

    • Show Week Number In Windows 10 Tray Calendar App

      Hi Windows experts!

      I can see week numbers if I start the Calendar App on Windows 10 but I'm not able to see week number if I just click date and time in the taskbar and the small calendar pops up. I would like for week numbers to show in the taskbar pop up calendar.

      Have a very good day!

      • Forward calls

        Add Call Forwarding ("Redirect Call") Options to "Auto Attendant" (both working hours and after hours) and "Call Queues".

        We use an outside phone receptionist service to answer all our calls.

        This feature change will be helpful for businesses who want to forward to their mobile phone or an after-hours support service desk.

        • API for Teams custom status messages

          Teams custom status message just rolled to clients. Is there a way to update the status via Graph (or other ) API, calling the client / updating a file or any other non manual way currently / nearby?

          It would open up interesting possibilities to update statuses (off duty, on duty for example).

          • DO NOT DISTURB- DOESN'T WORK

            Make the "Do Not Disturb" actually not disturb! I hate that I still receive notifications on my PC as well as on my phone when in DND. It doesn't even send a message to people that this person is unavailable so they can't send you a message.

            • "Follow" Specific Users

              Would be great to select specific users to "follow" like Twitter. Or even something like a setting where I only get updates from users in my "favorites" contacts list. Most of the time I dont need updates from all these channels, I'd rather select specific people or a smaller group to get updates from when they post content. Thanks!

              • Allow setting creation and modification time when creating chat messages

                We need to set creation and modification times of chat messages in a migration scenario where messages from another system must be migrated to Teams.

                This is currently not possible as the fields are marked as read-only. (see here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/chatmessage?view=graph-rest-beta)

                  • checklist planner

                    Planner Checklist item additions:

                    1) Provide the ability to assign one or more people to Planner checklist items within a card.
                    (The card itself has assigned people but each Planner checklist item should also have assigned people.)

                    2) Provide the ability to assign due dates to Planner Checklist items within a card.
                    (The card itself has a due date but each Planner checklist item should also have their own due dates)

                    • Improve API to navigate to team, tab, ...

                      We are building a custom application in Teams.

                      An end user opens up our application and:
                      - We offer the user to navigate to a team by building up the link (similar to 'Get link to team')
                      - When an end user clicks that link the browser opens up and asks if the link should be opened in the browser in the client application (see attachment)

                      It does not make sense to open up the link in the browser as we already have the client opened up.
                      The end user should to end up in the Team general channel the…

                      • Notifications for unread messages should be visible on icon

                        There is no notification visible for any new messages or for unread messages. If there are unread messages in this application these should be visible on icon. This may be indicated just by a Red dot. No need to show numbers if that is difficult.

                        • API to retrieve your saved messages

                          It would be great to be able to save messages and then using flow or custom code be able to query for them via an API.

                            • Add permanently visible scrollbars and menu or scrollbar

                              Give at least the option to have the scrollbars permanently visible as usual in the Windows environment. And add either menus or toolbar for the commands. Moreover give the option to hide the search bar on top. It's very unconfortable because every time you want to move the window you have to drag on one side and not in the centre of the header of the window.

                              • AD / O365 Group integration

                                Make teams groups able to use AD / o365 groups so dynamic team membership can be driven by groups.
                                When adding a member to a team you can add a group but this just pulls the current member of the group. Making teams read the group membership to determine membership on a scheduled basis would be very helpful for teams that change regularly and are based on AD groups.

                                • Keep it simple. We only started using Teams because Hipchat went out of commission. Right now Teams feels non-intuitive

                                  Wow. I thought the heading was my essay. Apparently not. And now my heading is over worded and complicated. And this is my point. I’m a working stiff at an animation studio and I don’t have time for a learning curve. Keep it simple for noobs who are using your product. Maybe this is a culture clash and your designers have free reign before testing the entertainment industry. Look at WhatsApp. I can highlight a previous comment and respond. This is true on teams but not on PMs also. Can’t copy a pic from the internet to clipboard and simply…

                                  • Add unread notification bubble to app icon

                                    Hi,

                                    Slack provides a notification bubble with the count of unread mentions. It also provides a notification bubble with a dot if there are no unread mentions, but there are channels with unread messages (example attached).

                                    Currently, Teams includes a bubble with the count of unread mentions, but there is no way to tell from the app icon in the dock if there is other unread activity. Could you please add this feature?

                                    Thanks,

                                    Matt

                                    • API to list all user's teams, channels and recent posts in channels

                                      Going through all user's teams, channels and most recent posts in Teams is not a very performing process to do even if you had teams and channels ids prestored.

                                      The purpose would be to provide "latest topics/chat threads in your Teams" -view. Sorta similar like Yammers aggregate view to help user to get a glance of "what's happening" in his Teams.

                                      For example asking a bot "what's happening in my teams?" or this there could be a custom report/view (in Teams tab or in SharePoint) to user about what's the activity.

                                      The API call could return some data about the…

                                      • Autodetect code snippet language

                                        Now you can create and post code snippets. The new feature looks great!

                                        When you create a snippet you have to select the language. It would be great, if Teams could detect the language automatically, too.

                                        • Multi functional all in one dashboard

                                          Would be nice to have a customizable dashboard where you can chat, check in team, and phone call in one GUI interface
