  1. Facepalm like reaction needed

    A new set of reactions to substitute like functionality is just great. However what we need is a facepalm emoji reaction to convey the true reactions to many posts - let's make it happen!

  2. -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…

  3. 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.

  4. Copying text is pants

    Currently trying to select text to copy in an indidual message is almost impossible.

    When copying, it either overlays the Save and Like icons or copies the text below as well.

    We're having to past text into word docs to get the trimmed data we need

  6. Reactions Order - Place the "thumbs up" to the far right

    We now have additional "reactions" beyond the thumbs up "like" but the thumbs up is always going to be the most used so it would be great if it can be placed on the far right of the reactions bar to make it easiest to access. Thank you!

  7. Put the "Start a new conversation..." box at the top

    In Teams Channels, it's way too common for users to start a new conversation when they intend to reply to an existing conversation. Move the "Start a new conversation..." box, and the formatting & submission icons, to the top of the Conversations window. Keep the latest conversation/reply at the bottom. The idea is to create some separation between the "Start a new conversation..." box and the "Reply" link that sits at the bottom of existing conversations.

  8. Support for Private Channels

    Looking for the ability to create a channel that only channel members can see. Private channels are available in slack. There is an admin for private channels who is the creator, and they are the ones who add/remove users.

    Five types of public/privacy that is being asked for by users:

    - Public-Open (visible anywhere including outside the org and anyone can join)
    - Public-Invitation (visible anywhere including outside the org, must be invited)
    - Company-Open (only visible inside the org and anyone in the org can join; outside the org must be invited)
    - Company-Invitation (only visible inside the org,…

  9. It should be possible to change the Channel sharepoint file directory

    Currently, if I create a new Channel, Teams will automatically create a sharepoint directory with the same name. However, if I change the name of the Channel, the directory name does not automatically change accordingly. If I want to change the directory name to match the new channel name, I am unable to do so. Even if I open the Channel file directory in Sharepoint and manually rename it, the channel connection does not update. In fact, this seems to completely break the connection (i.e. the channel no longer points to the same folder once it has been renamed in…

  10. Customized Options to Lock Teams Chat Navigation Menu in minimized view

    Our associates are often running multiple programs at once, therefore it's not uncommon for them to utilize a minimized window view of TEAMS running alongside another program. However, when TEAMS is not in full screen mode, the chat navigation menu on the far left will auto collapse or block chat conversation when it reappears.

    Our request is to allow the user the option to LOCK the chat navigation menu even when they are in a minimized window view for efficiency. Currently the chat nav menu will auto-collapse or appear over the chat conversation and history. Ability to lock and have…

  11. Need a feature to provide automated reply for once in every new conversation in a Channel

    We create a channel to communicate with multiple users on various topics. So, we would like to notify once for every user who opens a new conversation to make use of single thread for further discussions on the same topic.

  12. I want to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time

    LOG INTO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
    Original user posted:
    I would like to heave this multi-team/tenant option within “MS Teams”, like in Slack. Currently I’m in four different organization. They’re using all office365, three of them now changed from Slack to Teams. I’ve to permanently login/logout to switch to the related MS Team. This is really time consuming.

    Another user says:
    We need the ability to sign in with multiple accounts. Many of us have several O365 accounts for various reasons (consulting, etc), and we’d need to be able to access teams directly.
    This is not a federation or B2B scenario, but…

  13. Allow Channel Level Security

    Allow Channel level security in addition to Team level security. This will allow for better cross collaboration. Commonly, you will have a set of internal org team members, but projects (channels) may contain external resources. It would be highly useful to simply give guest access at the channel level and once a project is done, simply delete or archive the channel, not have to remove Team guest users every time. This also solves the issue of having a large amount of Teams to control what guest users can see. Instead of 20 teams with different guest in each team, you…

  14. Reject Teams Invitation

    Currently once you are invited to a Team or group you are automatically added. There should be an option to be able to reject an invitation sent to you in Teams.

  15. Edit member names in Teams

    Allow the capability for member names/alias to be modified in Teams either by the Team owner or by the member.

    For instance a guest in Teams that has already been added to the tenant and is now added to a new Team will by default be stuck with the naming convention from how they were originally added. Such as Smith.Michael[Corp]@company.com when really you'd like it to show: Michael Smith.

  18. Disable Welcome New User message

    We would request to add a feature to hide the Welcome New User message which is shown to other users’ latest information. This feature is not necessary for operation, so it would be great that this can be disabled.

  20. Make Copying a message easier

    Make the "..." button have the copy message feature. Or make copying a message easier. Right now, it is incredibly difficult to copy a message by highlighting the message in Teams. Also, when trying to highlight the whole message or part of a message i.e. Password: Welcome1 It becomes difficult to highlight the last part of the message because the "...", thumbs up button, and other things are covering the end of the message.
