  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. Support to host a meeting in a Private Channel

    Hi there, I've setup a private channel in a Team for supervisors only. I'd like to "host" the regular staff meeting in the private channel, but i can only select "public" channels. Can Microsoft add the ability to host Team meetings within a private channel?

  3. Your team has reached the maximum number of private channels

    Today we attempted to create a new private channel and received the following error "Your team has reached the maximum number of private channels".

    OMG everyone at my company is going to KILL ME. I moved our entire organization off Slack to Teams and to streamline communication we went with a company Team and then inside that Team we create private channels for targetted audience communication. This was done to avoid having to create multiple teams then add everyone who would ever have to communicate with any of the channels inside the team.

    In slack they had no limitation on…

  4. 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?

  8. Tagging in private channels

    Tags are finally out!

    But it works only for public channels in a Team. It would be great to have the same functionality for private channels.

    Use case:
    We are providing a DMS support for our organizational units in MS Teams.
    Each organizational unit has its own private channel where the support team and the organizational unit users are finding place. Private channels are used to avoid data leak. For the users it's difficult to mentrion all the people from the support team using @.

    So it would be greate to have the same functionallity for tags as public channels…

  9. Enable video pop-out for non-presenters

    As a non-presenting participant in a Teams meeting I want to be able to see both shared content and the video feed of other members simultaneously. I need to be able to view and control (e.g. move and resize) both the shared content and video feeds separate from each other.

    Currently as a participant in a Teams meeting I cannot pop-out the video feeds as a separate window viewable at the same time as the shared content window. Only the presenter can get the participant video feeds in a separate pop-out window from the shared content.

    As a non-presenting participant…

  10. Teams for Xbox (for office use)

    We use Teams everywhere - PCs, mobile, Yealink phones, etc. We have an Xbox in our meeting room - since the Xbox is a powerhouse and can accomodate a big screen monitor, HD web cam, speakers, mics, etc., how about Teams on the Xbox? It would save us from spending another $5K on a Teams meeting room device... and how cool would it be?

  11. Copy conversation link in a private channel

    I'd like to be able to copy a conversation link in a private channel, like you can for a public channel. This presently doesn't exist. I would imagine the link would appear as a dead link (not authorized), to anyone not in the private channel.

  13. intro the ability to put participant thumbnail views during a Teams meeting to the top of the screen when someone is sharing

    Introduce option to put participant thumbnail views during a Teams meeting to the top of the screen when someone is sharing their screen.
    Zoom does this and visually it looks like we're talking to each other as opposed to the bottom of our screens. That slight tilt of the neck is ever-so more ergonomic too.

  14. Allow organizer to close participant video in Teams meeting

    When having multiple persons participating Teams meeting often it is nice to join with video on. Sometimes others may suffer a poor-quality connection or have their webcam pointed in other direction than it supposed. Is there a roadmap to allow the meeting organizer to switch off the participants video like you can mute other persons?

  19. Customize default sort order of folders in Teams

    Folders in Teams are sorted by default on last modified date. There is no option to set a different default sort order like an alphabetic sort order.

    Please add options that allows the user to set his/her own default sort order in order to sort folder names in Teams.

  20. Bug: Inconsistency in being able to add users to Private Channels via Web/Desktop Clients

    Referred from Tech Community: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/can-t-add-members-to-private-channels/m-p/1088400#M42918

    Issue is inconsistency when adding users to private channels via the web and desktop clients. Sometime users can and sometimes users can't. Workarounds to this solution include adding them on mobile (both IoS/Android) and completely removing member from the Team and re-adding them
