  1. Screen sharing within chat

    I need to be able to share my screen with a coworker at a different location WITHIN a chat. I also need my coworker to be able take over my computer within chat. Right now it seems you can only share your screen during a meeting.

  2. Better visual delineation between `Reply` and `Start a new conversation`

    It's very confusing to new users that there is a difference between replying to an existing conversation and starting a new one within a channel. This is a visual thing as much as anything else. The 'reply' buttons are not naturally attractive if you just want to start typing a message. There should be a logical gap between the bottom of a conversation and 'start a new conversation'. 'Start a new conversation' needs to be separated visually, as if it's a second order command rather than a first order...reply.

  3. Copying text - hovering menu hides the end of the text

    When copying text from a message, the ending of the message is hidden by the "More Options" hover.

  4. Chat with only 20 people?

    The chat tab gives you the ability to only chat in the same time with 20 people and no more. Is it possible to get this changed and have more then 20 people in this chat? I know we can chat in the group team where more then 20 can join but it is not the same. Chat experience is different t on chat then I'm the group and some people like it this way. If 20 can join, why not more?

  5. Allow removal of people from Group Chats

    Once a person is added to a group chat. You cannot remove them. You must create a new chat and lose all the history.

  6. Allow More People to be in a Private Chat

    Currently the maximum number of people who can join a group chat is 50, it would be really useful to see this expanded! We have multiple use-cases within our organisation for larger group chats, particularly as people try to move away from Lync and Skype based chats.

  7. Skype integration (Consumer Federation)

    It would be nice to integrate public Skype (not Skype for Business) into Teams. I am able to chat with Skype for business users within my organization but when working with external clients I still have to go back to public Skype. If I could even just simply chat and call with Skype users as well that would allow me to use Teams as my sole communication platform.

  8. Auto scroll down when new messages come in

    It is annoying to have to click on the “New Messages” button or scroll down manually when new messages arrive. The suggestion here is to keep scrolling down to bottom and to provide a button to jump back to last unread message.

    Hi everyone, thanks for the feedback and help on this item. It has been resolved for the majority of users: the screen no longer jumps around while scrolling or jumps to the latest message if you are scrolled up.

    If you have any questions with this feature or find a bug, please email teamsml@microsoft.com with repro steps and user logs. Your feedback is always extremely helpful!

    Thank you for your support of Teams and your patience while we worked on this item. I really appreciate it and wish you a very Happy New Year!

  9. Need read receipts

    Mobile working, Asynchronous working of teams is a common phenomena. Read receipts let us know if the message has been seen, so we know it can be acted on. Critical when large numbers of the team are mainly mobile workers.

    I am happy to announce that build 33658 has been released to the public, so you should be receiving the update if you don’t have it already. Thank to everyone who confirmed the fix worked for them, and thanks again for your patience as we worked thru this tricky issue.

    You can now remove yourself from group chats! Just click the overflow menu next to the chat and select Leave. You’ll still have access to chat history up until you left.

  12. More than 20 participants in a chat

    We would like to use group chats for conversations that are not team/work related. However, the 20 participant limit keeps us from using the feature to it's full extent. Please increase the participant limit for group chats from 20 to 100.

    This is done rolling out and you should all be able to use this function in your Teams now. Ping me at sparavi (at) Microsoft (dot) com if you have any questions!

  14. Need to be able to remove people from a group chat.

    I'm assuming this was already requested but searching on Uservoice doesn't work all that well so I didn't find anything.

    There needs to be a way to remove people from a group chat (not from a team chat). If someone gets added by mistake, there is no way to remove them from a chat. We have to request people manually Leave the chat.

    In Skype, chats are considered meetings and I can just right-click someone to remove them. That functionality needs to be added to Teams as well.

  15. Let me and the team owner delete messages.

    One user asked:
    If I wrote the message, I should be allowed to delete it, regardless of a time limit (right now we're only allowed 24 hours to delete our own message). There should be no limit.

    Another user asked:
    The team owner should have moderating access to their own teams. In its most basic form, team owners should be able to delete messages posted by other members.

    It is a basic functionality that other popular services like Slack allow. It also helps keep a team's conversation clean.

    For example, a new member of our team is still getting familiar…

    We have removed the 24-hour limit on all messages. We have also added the ability for owners to delete messages. HOWEVER, on the latter function, this is not on by default — the IT admin needs to enable the feature to allow team owners to delete any message.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

  16. Hide, Archive, and Delete chat threads!

    Teams is way to cluttered when you have several chats. It is difficult to see new messages when they come in. I like a very clean and simple tool and if you could manage options that let you delete threads and also that would let you choose to clear all activity and history upon closing the App that would be great. As it is I have a bunch on inactive threads that are always in the activity list and they are old and not active any longer. Other than this I really like the UI and the functions of the…

    Additional clarification as to what was fixed in this feature request.

    This request is done except for Delete Private chat. Delete Private Chat is still Under Review and therefore will be pulled into its own topic; no decision has been made to yet if this will be done or not.

    What is complete are the following:

    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 channels, but the private chat threads that appear when you click the Chat icon on the left-side app bar).
    4. The ability to mute your private chat threads. (these are not the chat threads in channels, but the private chat threads…

  17. Allow for content sharing outside of audio/video meeting

    Need the ability to share desktop outside of a meeting - escalate chat/message to desktop share, then add audio/video if needed; or, audio/video on mobile, but sharing desktop content.

    I’ve gotten feedback from the feature team that copying images into chat should work, but different than you would expect with external images. External images pasted into a message will show up as a link. Prior to the update, pasting an external image simply broke.

    If you wish to paste an external image and not have it appear as a link, then you will need to past it into the clipboard and then copy the image from the clipboard into the message.

  19. up arrow to edit last message

    pressing the up arrow when the custor is in the compose box, it will edit the user's last message.

    This is completed.

    The up arrow to edit the last message only works in chat or specific reply chains.

    This does not work in the command box.

    If you feel this isn’t working correctly or should work differently please let us know by contacting TeamsML@microsoft.com

    Thank you!

  20. Get a link to a conversation

    There should be an option to create a link to a conversation, thus enabling pinging of folks with a direct link, requesting their inputs.
