  1. Audio and Video call on every browser

    Now just Edge support audio and video calls. Making Teams work on all main browsers (IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox) should be a priority . I need Teams to work with all my customers and I can't force them to install software on their machines.

    • Add-in for Mac

      As a Mac user, I'd like to be able to create Microsoft Teams meeting links via an Outlook Add-in, similar to the add-in available on Windows.

      • Reply with IM in Outlook

        Replace Skype in the Reply with IM feature in Outlook.

        Currently, Skype for Business users can "Reply with IM" or "Replay All with IM" to an email in Outlook. This opens the SFB client with a message to the email sender, or a group message to all recipients on the email.

        I am proposing the ability to either replace SFB with Teams, or add Teams as an option to the existing functionality.

        Ideally, once this ability exists, the key value is to easily move a conversation from an email to either a channel, a group chat, or an individual chat,…

        • Integrate Microsoft FindTime

          Would love to have the ability to post a Microsoft FindTime poll within a Team for scheduling meetings within the group. It's already a plugin for Outlook, integrating it with Teams could allow a quick FindTime poll with the members of the team, rather than having to manually select each member of the team every time a poll is needed.

          • Install in Program Files directory

            We simply can't fathom the idea that Microsoft allows for an Enterprise-level application like Teams to be installed on the user's AppData folder. As IT admins, we need the ability to install this in the Program Files directory. You recently released an MSI package, but that still copies the executable over to the user's %localappdata% directory. This is not secure!

            • Support 3rd party audio conferencing provider (ACP) integration with MS Teams Statement "...MS Teams does not support 3rd-party Audio Confe

              Support 3rd party audio conferencing provider (ACP) integration with MS Teams

              Statement "...MS Teams does not support 3rd-party Audio Conferencing Providers (ACPs)."

              Here is my position:

              I am upset with the tactic which forces us to use Microsoft Audio Conferencing for Teams PSTN dial in capabilities . With Skype for Business, I could integrate a 3rd party audio conference provider. All my existing conferencing numbers would work. The Global Network Architecture created for us could remain in place. No workflow changes to end/users.

              In Teams, I will be forced to use the MS Audio Conferencing service if I want that…

              • third-party chat clients (e.g. pidgin)

                Other chat programs (Slack, Cisco Webex, Google Hangouts) allow third-party clients, typically over XMPP. Can we have an XMPP port on the Teams server?

                • Start workflows on individual messages

                  Looking for the ability to start a workflow based on an individual message in any channel and in any team.
                  For example, a trigger like "When I bookmark a message". This in turn would allow to do anything with the message via Flow, for example, create a To-Do item.

                  • Import / Export for data migration between tenants

                    At my IT company we are frequently working on Office 365 migration projects. We're also working on some merger / carve-out projects so we frquently need to move data out of tenant no 1 and re-import that data to tenant no #2.
                    Currently this cannot be done by the existing graph api, as there is no support to access several data like chat conversation etc.
                    Unfortunately, a support request answered that it's also not possible to get that from the support right now.

                    I'd like to request some export-team and import-team functionality

                    • Federation with the Matrix Protocol

                      I know there are already a lot of requests for federation. This is a different type of request though, as it is more specific:

                      Similar to how true email federation uses open source federated protocols like IMAP, SMTP, POP3, true federated banquet style chat applications should also use open source federated protocols to allow other clients & hosts.

                      The Matrix protocol (which is managed by a non-profit organization) is the most popular way to do this. I would love if Microsoft Teams added support for this to allow it to truly replace email, and communicate with customers, vendors, etc. that…

                      • We need to be able to have multiple teams on our devices.

                        Need to be able to join multiple teams. As this platform grows there will be people who serve on several teams. Personally i serve on a public community association board that uses teams. As well so does my work account. I need the ability to easily flip between the two teams with different organizations on the same device.

                        • softwarecenter:

                          MS Teams doesn't currently respect the "softwarecenter:" URLs created by SCCM's Software Center.

                          It would be great if support for them could be added.

                          • Fix the "This person is currently using Skype for Business. Some Microsoft Teams features won't be available." issues

                            "This person is currently using Skype for Business. Some Microsoft Teams features won't be available."

                            Under Office365, none of our users are using SfB, but most of them show up on Teams as unavailable for chat, with the above message, , even when their presence is 'green.' This is going to drive me back to Slack if not fixed (desktop app and online version).

                                • hyperlinking to a chat user

                                  (NOTE - This is the second time I am posting this as the last time it was inappropriately merged into https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17137732-hyperlink-any-text-in-chat which has nothing to do with this request. It is a little frustrating that I can't even get to my original post in order to copy and paste - I need to recreate it from scratch.)

                                  It would be very helpful to have the ability to hyperlink INTO a chat with a given user. We relied on this heavily while using Skype and it is a very nice feature to be able to embed into other internal applications.

                                  • custom url h

                                    Can you please enable support for custom URL protocols ?

                                    We have applications registered as URL protocol handlers that utilise custom URL's sent from those applications for easy navigation

                                    so for eg when a user receives the URL

                                    starflow://localhost/event=showDocument&documentId=2231381
                                    ...and clicks on it, the action is handled by the registered URL protocol handler app

                                    These custom URL's are already supported in Outlook, Word, Excel, PPT and One Note....as well as many other Windows/Mac applications...so why not TEAMS ?

                                    Thanks

                                    • Make new conversation UI for desktop align with mobile versions.

                                      Make new conversation UI for desktop align with mobile versions.

                                      Right now, there are a *LOT* of new conversations that get started as someone is attempting or meaning to reply to an existing conversation. The fact that the replay and start a new conversation are often next to each other, and visually very similar as text input it's easy to confuse them.

                                      The problem with new threads is they become disconnected from those who are actually replying to an existing thread.

                                      This isn't the case in mobile, specifically android, where the new conversation is a round button in the lower-right…

                                      • Sync Teams and Office 365 groups with email distribution lists

                                        Any organization provides email addresses for their employees. Usually the organizations create an email address (distribution list) for each of their teams so that users could contact a certain team without knowing their member's email addresses - just the email address of the group / team.

                                        These team/group email addresses (distribution lists) are managed by IT Admins through Office 365. An IT Admin is able to add / remove a user from a certain distribution list and they are responsible to keep those lists acurate. Is there any possibility to allow the IT Admins to create a team in Microsoft…

                                        • TeamsOnly - allow users in this mode to IM (chat) with Skype for Business users in Islands mode

                                          It looks like Islands users can interop with TeamsOnly (table 1c) but not TeamsOnly with Islands (table 1a), see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/coexistence-chat-calls-presence

                                          Please bring back some new-chat interop for TeamsOnly users without forcing everyone else into one of the SfB* modes. How hard would it be to give us a TeamsWithSfBChat mode to give us back some semblance of interop between Teams and SfB?
