  1. -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…

    • 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,…

        Hey Microsoft Teams users — I want you to weigh in on new features around channels and group chats. The engineering team and I have put together this survey to find out how you want to see channels improve. You can fill it out here: https://microsoft.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esTxHdABLQxKLvn

        And I’m still waiting on approval to get you a good update about Private Channels. I can say that we ARE working on it, fervently.

        Thanks and ping me any time, for anything at all: www.twitter.com/skprufo or sparavi@microsoft.com. I’m a little behind on email but catching up, so apologies for delays there!

      • 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…

          Hi everyone! I’m happy to share that we’ve been working on this and are at a point where we need your feedback.

          We have designs for this multi-tenant feature and are collecting feedback this week. If you are interested in weighing in on this, keep reading…

          If you would be interested in participating please contact the user researcher and generally fabulous coworker of mine, David Quiroz (his email is daquiroz@microsoft.com). He will schedule you into a time slot and will be the person to conduct the interview. It would only require 30min of your time and would require signing and NDA.

          We are looking for five people to participate in a 1:1 session with the researcher. We need people who currently use Teams with multiple tenants/different companies (at least two).

          Thank you in advance for your help!

        • Add Channel Groups

          Add the functionality create channel groups. This feature would add much more clarity in big teams with many channels.

          Example:

          Team Test

          Channel 1
          Channel 2
          Channel Group (Development) [Collapsible]
          -> Channel XYZ
          -> Work
          -> etc..

          • rubric option for students grading themself

            It would be better if the students can also grade themself with the rubric option so that the teacher can compare his rubric with the one from the student. Hope this would be possible soon.

            • Add archiving feature on Teams' posts

              Considering that teams channel are sometime used for discussing projects, problems, long term plans, etc. in business regardless of the size. Having the possibility to archive an entire post (and its replies) either in an dedicated archive feature added to teams or give the option to send the post to a different teams / channel ( that would be used for various backup decisions or archiving data) would be a great addition to MS Teams.

              This would go hand in hand with the search feature in Teams to easily find old post that would be relevant reference to a new…

                • Integrate Shifts with Outlook Calendar

                  Once a schedule is complete in Shifts and then Shared with the team, it should show up in Outlook calendar as a separate calendar so that each individual can quickly see if there are any conflicts with other work or personal commitments. An alternative is that it populates in Planner.

                    • Toggle graphic when changing team sites

                      I guess I'm lodging this feedback on behalf of my 4yr old daugher.

                      In the interest of gender equality, how hard would it be to toggle the person in the graphic when changing team sites (see attached file). My daughter asked why it only shows a bearded man and not a "girl" or "princess". I didn't have a good answer for her.

                      So I guess ultimately she's asking to see different people/genders toggled in the image when changing team sites. Though to see a princess would be cool....

                      • Display the description of the team and channels

                        Every team and channel has a description that can be entered, yet there doesn't seem to be any way to see that description unless you can edit. How about making the description visible under the title in the right window? Maybe even a setting that allows me to make descriptions visible or not (on/off switch).

                        • Import Shifts schedule from Excel/CSV

                          Shifts already has export schedule in UI. It would be great to have a option to import schedule as well, so it could be prepared in a external (legacy) system and then easily imported using UI, without need to develop code for upcoming Graph API.
                          This would also make possible to create a shift "template" that could be easily uploaded to new Shifts / groups.

                          • Allow existing notebook in Office 365 EDU for Channels

                            Or at least let me copy sections from an existing notebook to the Teams notebook.
                            Every Notebook in Teams must be unique and not shared by default in any way.
                            I have 30+ teacher teams in Outlook365 Groups and of course they want their teams notebook inside Microsoft Teams as well.

                                Only team members with owner role are able to manage shifts.

                                Would be helpfull to define shifts manager seperate from their team role.
                                Shifts are also assigned by supervisors, which are only team member and assigning owner role is not desired.

                                    Would be nice if we had the ability to archive channels. For example: we created a channel for a specific project. Once the project is complete, we can archive that channel or at least move it out of the primary view. I could see the channel list getting large and clunky quickly with multiple projects many of which are complete.

                                    Also, when a conversation in the channel is complete it should be archived or hidden.

                                      Unfortunately due to re-prioritization this item has slipped back onto the “backlog” for the time being.

                                      I hope to see it move back into “working on it” soon and will continue to engage the feature team with your feedback.

                                      • information about missed call as substitute

                                        In our company we use the MS Teams feature to define a substitute who can make and receive calls in the name of another colleague (e.g. assistant in the name of the manager)

                                        For every incoming call it's shown if the calls is for someone himself or if the call was determined for another person (e.g. assistant sees if call is for the manager or for himself)

                                        In case the call is missed, the history in Teams only shows the number of the caller, but the information about the recipient is missing (e.g. was the call determined for the manager…
