  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.

    Thank you for your feedback! The team has reviewed this request and has added it to our backlog for both Standard (Public) to Private and Private to Standard (Public) channel conversion. We will share an update as soon as it’s available.

  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. 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?

  5. Assignments hand-in no work or blank work

    Teachers are assigning work for students to complete. But students are handing in assignments with no work or blank work.
    Can the Hand-In button be disabled if students have not uploaded anything or added to the resources they have been provided.
    Part of schools working remotely is trying to keep a track of which students are not completing work. Then calling parents to discuss this. Making it so that students can hand in an assignment without having done anything makes checking very difficult.

  6. Can the presenter lock the option where students can unmute themselves during a meeting?

    Presenters should have control of unmuting the students and not let the students unmute themselves

  7. 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…

  8. Teams Live events monitoring tool

    Ability to track and monitor scheduled Teams Live events. Due to the increased interest and usage of Teams Live events, we need to ensure that scheduled Teams Live events are monitored to prevent any network degradation and no more than 15 events are scheduled concurrently due to the limitation.

  9. 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.

  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. 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…

  13. 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.

  16. Growth mindset feedback cycle for revising and resubmitting work.

    When a student turns in an assignment that needs more work, teachers need to be able to send it back to students into a category that is different than “Assigned” or “Completed.” This new category could be labeled “In progress,” “Review,” or “Revise.” When these students submit more work on their assignment, the teacher needs a notification that there is more work to be graded. Currently, if a student adds work and “turns in again” – there is no notification to the teacher. Teachers can assess the new work and send back to students again or mark as complete. This…

  17. Students view all assignments at once

    Add the ability for students to view all of their assignments at once across all of their class teams.

    Currently students can only view assignments 1 class team at a time.

    Please add the ability for them to see all of their assignments at once, the assignments tab on the left currently is a perfect home for this, and if i remember correctly used to display all assignments for the user, however it now gives the exact same interface as navigating to the individual team and clicking on the assignments tab at the top.

  19. 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
