  1. Make public channel private

    It would be nice to convert some of our already established channels to private now the feature is available in the same way it may be desired to de-classify a private channel to public at some point too.

    Currently a channel privacy can only be set during creation.

  2. Create Planner tabs within Private Channels

    We have just started using Private Channels, which is great as our team has sub teams within it and this way we can have private discussions, without creating multiple teams.

    What we'd also like to do is create Planner Plans within the Private Channels that are only accessible to those within the Private Channel. Is this on the roadmap?

  3. Reposition the control bar

    allow the user to change the position of the control bar. It is positioned right where screen sharing occurs and you can't see the entire screen share

  4. Users added to team line removed

    In each general channel a new line gets created for all new users added to a team. Can this line be removed?
    As an example I setup a team and get some posts ready for welcome messages and introductions, then when I add groups of people, after a few lines all my messages have pushed up and off the screen.
    We have one specific team for all in the business and all the threads are getting lost as we add each department/individuals one by one.

  5. Limit private channel site options and provide navigation from main group site

    Private channels are now available, cool! However, we see some challenges in the fact that these are created as separate site collections in SharePoint.

    If you navigate to the private channel site collection (url example: /sites/TeamSite1-Privatechannel1/) you are automatically redirected to the documents library for this channel. However, in this site you can create custom libraries, lists and even sub sites which from a governance point of view creates some headaches...

    Also, there is no navigation from the main group site to the private channel sites and back.

    And finally, there are no branding options / site design options for…

  6. Ability for more than 1 person to share their screens in a group meeting

    Ability for more than 1 person to share their screens in a group meeting. These could be side by side and probably on click one of them goes bigger.

  7. Go to date in Teams channel

    Scrolling in Teams is difficult, especially when going back one or more months in an active Teams Room. Search doesnt allow you to view the entire conversation from a search result either.

    It'd be great if in a Teams Room, there was a function to jump to a date on the calendar. Doing so would jump your teams windows to that date of the conversation.

    It would save my poor mouse wheel finger quite a lot of work! :)

  8. Add hold music in consultative transfer of PSTN calls

    When putting a PSTN call on hold in Teams the caller will hear music. But when you do a consultative transfer the caller gets total silence before he gets transferred. Please also add music here.

  11. I want to check the upgrade date and time

    Until you receive an upgrade notification email, it is unknown when you will be upgraded.
    Therefore, you need the ability to check the date and time of the upgrade and the length of the extension period.

  12. -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled = true when created from Teams?

    A recent update has changed -HiddenFromExchangeClientsEnabled from default false to default true when Office 365 group is created by Teams. I would like an option for the user who creates the team to set this value upon creation. Our users need to use the O365 group as well as the team created in Teams. With this value set to true they cannot use the email functionality of the O365 group unless I use powershell to change the value every time someone creates a new team in Teams.

    This post was created because of a suggestion from support and the information…

  13. Integrate Microsoft To-Do with Teams

    Microsoft To-Do is a Microsoft product that would be convenient to have included with Microsoft Teams as an add-on, tab, etc. Given its purpose, it would also be nice to assign to-do tasks to other team members, or keep track of team's to-dos. The reason why to-do tool is a good add-on to have for Teams is that it is also integrated into Outlook and the entire Office 365 platform. Having to-do tasks sync across Microsoft Teams, Outlook and email would be awesome!

  14. Private channel access by non Team member

    The new private channel functionality doesn’t solve the basic private channels need. We have tons of needs for private channels where we want to invite someone to a channel but not give them access to the rest of the team. One example: BD proposal where you need a non-BD team member to be involved. They can’t have access to other BD files, just this one channel for this one proposal. Since they can’t have access to other BD files they aren’t part of the team, but if they aren’t part of the team they can’t get access to the channel.…

  15. More channel types

    Private channels will hopefully be implemented soon but I would like to see continued work on the capabilities of channels, here are some examples I think would be useful.


    • Hidden private channel - Each member is invited and none else can see it.


    • Visible private channel - Everyone can see the channel but only invited members can see content. Good if you want people to be aware that it exists so they can request access if needed.


    • Channel with external members - Like above but users not member of the team can be invited e.g. guests or people helping the…

  16. Inactive Team Policy

    Currently, Teams automatically hides Teams which have not been used in more than 45 days (https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&featureid=48621). Be able to create a policy in the TAC or in the client that can both set the number of days to hide inactive Teams (I.e. 7 - 100) and also be able to disable this altogether so inactive Teams are never moved to hidden Teams.

    Requested in TC article here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Automatic-hiding-of-Microsoft-Teams-in-more-than-45-days/m-p/767541#M35285

  17. Cross Channel Posts: Replies Appear in All Threads

    The new cross-channel posts are great! However, it would be even better if replies in one thread copied over to the thread in the other channel(s). This way, the conversation remains fluid and everyone always has the same information.

  18. Allow admins to globally configure channel policies

    Allow administrators to globally configure the channel policies (restrict channel deletion and creation to Owners for example). Currently there is no tenant-wide/global policy to manage/enforce these settings.

    Per-team settings are available, and can be configured on a team-by-team basis via PowerShell, but this would require automation to keep on top of - and would reset settings for teams where it might be desirable to allow Members to modify channels.

  19. Privacy setting for existing channels

    It would be great if we could change a private setting for the existed channels in Teams and we could be free to switch channels from standard to private and vice versa.
