  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. 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.

  3. Teams language setting Reset Issue.

    We apply a Japanese language pack to "Teams", however after Teams Update, the display setting reset to the English on base language. So I would like you to fix it.
    This is because English is set as the display language and the translation function of English can not be used.

  4. See who attended a meeting vs. accepted the invite

    I'd like to know who actually attended a meeting AFTER the meeting is over, vs. a list of who accepted the invitation. Often these two lists do not match. I know that the "Attendees" list is inaccurate as I appeared in an overnight meeting as an attendee, but I know I did not attend the meeting at all.

  5. -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…

  6. Avoid chaos when you have a lot of teams and keep them findable with team metadata

    When you have a lot of teams it becomes chaos and it's hard to find the team you are looking for. The idea is to add metadata to a team when you create it (see the attached images). With this metadata you can filter the list of available teams based on the type of team, owner(s), department, country, office location etc.

    The Teams Admin should be able to configure the metadata fields in the Teams Admin Center.

  8. Teams chat history export feature

    It would be good that Teams chat history can automatically be saved into Outlook folder like Conversation history (Skype does). I'm not sure if this feature still available in Teams, or we can have a way to export the chat to a file or something.

  9. 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

  10. Stop moving teams to hidden

    Please stop moving teams to the hidden section. This is extremely frustrating and a time drain to put them back. I don't need help managing my list. Or give me at least the functionality to turn this "functionality" off.

  11. separate chat window

    For better privacy, I would like to have a separate window for each chat, instead of having all the conversations on the home page.

  12. 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.

  14. Chat shoudl open as multiple pop up window like skype-helps to see multiple chat in parellel

    1. Chat shoudl open as multiple pop up window like skype-helps to see multiple chat in parellel. Currently we cannot see 2 or more chats together . Need to click the person chat each time to swap between persons
    2.Teams should have a mimimze view . Currently it covers the entire desktop.and we cannot work on any other applications if teams is active window. So keep toggle between my tool and teams repeatedly to work. Atleast chat should be like a sparatee side vertical bar window like Skype . So that rest of the desktop area is uncivered and free…

  15. 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!

  16. 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…

  17. 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!

  19. 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,…

    We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.

  20. 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.
