  1. Improve Install options - Install for all users and install location

    Raising this again as Microsoft closed the previous request, saying it was complete even though it was not. (link below)

    Teams should install to the program files directory, not the users AppData.

    And NO, the answer is not to put a copy of the MSI in Pogram Files and deploy to the users AppData when they login.

    • Block change picture

      In Skype for Business we were able to prevent users from uploading pictures for their avatar. This was done from a PowerShell script that modified the OWA policy. We should have the same option with Teams. Hopefully in UI instead of PS.

      • Reporting Capabilities

        We are after reporting capabilities to capture granular detail on activity within Teams.

        We would like to have data capturing:
        1. Number of users enabled
        2. Number of daily active unique users
        3. Breakdown of devices uniquely used
        4. Number of teams created
        5. Number of teams deleted
        6. How many instant messages sent overall in the Chat
        7. How many calls made in Teams
        8. Number of files shared in channels
        9. How many combined ‘likes’ have been made over a period of time

          Thank you so much for your support of the product. This request was particularly helpful and we appreciate your engagement in the surveys, comments and forum to help us design this feature. Please continue to submit ideas!

          For this item, we’re making great progress. It has now entered TAP validation with a small group of tenants. Will let you know how that goes!

              • Ability to retain image

                Ability to save the images in Teams
                ***************
                現在の Teams で画像を共有する際には画面下のアップロードアイコンからの共有方法と、イメージをコピー アンド ペーストして貼り付ける方法の 2 種類ございます。
                現時点の動作では、後者の手順で共有を行い長期間 (2 週間程度) 置くと正しく表示されない事象が複数発生します。
                現時点の動作上ファイルのアップロード方法を変更し再周知する事で掌握しておりますが、知識が足りないユーザーも多数存在しているため、コピー アンド ペーストで共有したファイルも長期間保存できるように動作の改善を要望します。

                When sharing images by copy and paste, we can only keep it up to 2 weeks, or images will corrupt. We are handling it by changing how we upload images and notify people, though if Teams allow images to be kept more than 2 weeks, that would be better.

                Thank you for your consideration.

                • Usage stats per team

                  We need to be able to see usage stats per team in admin center. Current stats show usage per user. This tells us very little as a user can be a member of multiple teams. Business area owner and rollout/adoption managers want to be able to select a team and see how much activity per week/month etc. In our case, this is the only metric that they're interested in.

                  • audio message

                    disable audio messages for the whole tenant.

                    if user send audio messages to teams, it is hard to search and detect words that users put in the conversation.

                    we also need an option to allow user block receiving Audio message

                    • Entierprise Deployment .MSI That Installs Into C:\Program Files

                      Build an MSI that will install the Teams application into "C:\Program Files". Then any user that logs onto the computer can go to Start > Search for Teams > Launch Teams > Sign in to their account > Then Teams Builds the appropriate App Data folder for them.

                      This would be great for Enterprise Deployment. Some Enterprise project groups consist of 15-20+ people, and having an enterprise deployment solution would help speed up Microsoft Teams adoption.

                        The error " We couldn’t create this team " is displayed when creating a team via Microsoft Teams admin center if the team name contains multi-byte character such as Japanese.
                        I hope this behavior will be corrected so that I can create a new team with Japanese name.

                        • Outbound Number Manipulations per PSTN Device

                          In skype for business server, we had the ability to write "Called Number Translation Rules" and "Calling Number Translation Rules" for each PSTN gateway.

                          There is no functionality to do this in Teams, so for each SBC I need to translate the powerful regex and translation statements that were available in Skype Server into the SBC.

                          I feel this is a huge functional oversight.

                            • Set different startpage per channel

                              Make it possible to set another starting page then the conversation page in a channel. So for instance I have a channel that is mainly for documents, so it would be usefull if a user clicks on the channel he/she immediately goes to the documents tab not to the conversation.

                              • Chat history to be shown to a new group chat member

                                For Microsoft Teams chat, when you add a new member into group chat which has three or more members, the new member can view the history chat. However, when you add other person into the existed one on one private chat, the newest member cannot view the chat history.
                                I would strongly request that a private chat to show the Conversation history to the newest member.

                                  Teams でチームタブでチャネルの説明を表示する設定の拡張希望

                                  Add team description list in Teams
                                  ***************
                                  現在社内で Teams で複数のチャネル、チームを作成し運用しております。
                                  部署ごとにチームを作成し用途に合わせ複数のチャネルを作成しているため、チャネル、チーム名では表示できない説明を入力し設定しております。
                                  チャネルの説明を表示する際、現時点の動作だとチームの管理画面までアクセスする必要がございます。
                                  チャネルの説明をチームの一覧に表示させることができれば弊社の工数が大幅に軽減され、業務効率の改善が大幅に見込めるため機能の拡張を要望いたします。

                                  Each department in our company has created their own teams/channel and each channel has its own description memos/box (kind of like team introduction) which can be created only in Teams admin center. Provide ability to create channel description list for the whole organization to appear on team lists without accessing Teams admin center.

                                  Thank you for your consideration.

                                    At our office we're using Teams for parts of our Project execution, we use it to communicate, collect information, share files, compare notes, create a wiki, etc.

                                    At the same time we have Project Online, with a registration of the same projects. We use that for our deliverables, time- and projectmanagement. But also for information gathering (as we do in Teams).

                                    How awsome would it be when I integrate some of the Teams features into the corresponding Project site. And Share the library, and the OneNote.

                                    Now we use two libraries (one for Teams and one for Project) and we…

                                    • Restrict contacts to be synced when migrating from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams

                                      We don’t want contacts to be synced when migrating from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams, but there is no such function implemented today.
                                      The current behavior is that all user contacts are synced if they previously used Skype for Business when signing into Microsoft Teams at the very first time. So, it would be nice to control over the sync behavior.

                                        Allow deleting “this message has been deleted” message, or, allow hiding deleted message. Most of time, we do not want to see the "This message has been deleted" line showing.

                                        • Set Expiration Policy Based on Inactivity

                                          We would like an expiration policy based on inactivity, where if a team is inactive after a certain amount of time, it is auto-deleted.
