  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…

    • 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.

      • 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,…

          • 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…

            • 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…

                    • Team Planner - Add List View

                      Would like a table view of the items in Planner as a view option. Section would be the bucket, the deliverable, assigned to, status, etc. When there is a larger project all the tiles can be difficult to see the overall at a glance.

                      Not sure if this should be in TEams or Planner - or maybe both. I am using Planner primarily with Teams, which is why I am putting it here.

                      • 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).

                        • 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.

                          • 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…

                                    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....

                                      • Import Groups & Contacts from Skype for Business

                                        With the integration of Skype's features in Microsoft Teams, is there a way to export/import your Contacts and Groups from Skype into Microsoft Teams?

                                        For someone that has been using Teams for over a year now, this would be very useful tool.

                                        As to perform this task of creating Groups, adding the people to them both internal and external manually would take several hours.

                                        Let me know if I can assist.

                                          Microsoft Teams のチームの配下に作成済みのチャネルを、別のチームへ、移動 / 複製ができるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

                                          ■Description(内容):
                                          Microsoft Teams でチームの配下に追加したチャネルをタブの追加などを実施して細かく作成をしているものがあった場合に、他チームへチャネルの移動 / 複製ができると非常に利便性が向上すると考えております。現段階では、チャネルの作り直しや、新規作成で利用をしておりますが非常に工数がかかるように感じられます。
                                          工数削減のためにも、チャネルを他のチームへ移動 / 複製が可能となるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

                                          I would like to have the feature to move/copy channel which is including many tabs from one Teams to another. In current feature, we need to recreate exactly same channel as we want to copy, or just create new one and those process take a lot of time.

                                          To reduce these work load, please implement the feature to move/copy existing channel to another Teams.

                                          Thank you for your consideration.
