  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

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • Hide email addresses for users

                    I want to limit my employees ability to communicate with each to conversation solely available within the teams they are added too. While I have disabled the "Chat" option, each persons email address is displayed when you click on there username in a conversation. Is there away to hide users emails so they are not visible?

                    Background: All employees we have are remote, working in different states, making different wages, having different work loads, etc. I would prefer to limit there communication that may range on a variety of non work related topics that could potentially cause problems.

                    • 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.

                      • Link Teams to existing SharePoint site

                        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…

                            Have received several requests from companys requesting that they need to limit what apps the user can add to a team.

                            Admins should have the ability to not only limit what tabs/apps the users see but also disable the Store feature completely.

                            • Teams Service Admin search, view, and edit all Teams in Admin Center

                              I finally see the Teams widget in my Teams Admin Center but when I search for a team it sometimes retrieves no records - even when I've quadruple checked that I have the Team/Group name exactly right.

                              1. Search for Teams should be a "contains" search, not a "starts with" search (that is insane, you can't expect Admins to know the exact name of a given group they are looking for)

                              2. When I do get search results, I can only access teams I am a member of. So I can't do any admin tasks on teams where I'm not…

                              • Stop preload of users and teams in search in Admin Center, load only after active search action

                                In the Teams Admin Center when you select either the Teams or the Users widgets you see a table of results as from a query. The records load before you search so you sit and wait for them to load. Then if you start typing in the search the results refresh while you type so you spend a lot of time waiting for load when you may not even want to see those records.

                                Instead, initiate the load of records after the users clicks the Search action or presses Enter. This would speed up my life so much.

                                  I am requesting the feature improvement that enables the below changes with team creation in Microsoft Teams:

                                  ・The setting of the maximum number of teams that per user can create. I would like to change the maximum limit (250) to smaller value.

                                  ・The minimum number of members for a teams. I would like to control the team creation that user cannot create a team unless adding specified number of members.

                                  ・The minimum number of teams’ owner. I would like to control the team creation that user cannot create a team unless specifying the exact number of owners.

                                  • Teams Usage Reporting

                                    • The Options for usage date are restrictive giving only fixed date ranges of 7,30,180 or 365 days. It would be much better if a variable date range could be applied?

                                    • We have a team of around 14 people, at the moment to see data for those people, the data has to be exported for all users and then filtered down in an external application such as Excel. It would be much better to be able to report on a specific ‘team’ only.

                                    • Also it would be useful do be able to access reporting outside of the Admin…

                                    • Channel moderators and owners can delete unwanted conversation traffic on a channel

                                      As a channel owner, it would be very useful to be able to delete unwanted conversation traffic from a channel and to designate one or moderators to be able to manage conversation traffic - approve posts or remove unwanted posts

                                      • teams admin center user search limit displayed items

                                        The displayed Items in Teams Admin Center User Search needs to be limitied like S4B User search...

                                        i've got a tenant with 100.000 Users and Searching or even only displaying users in teams admin center is catastrophically slow as the admin center loads all users in the list!

                                        the active search is slow too because also every user is filtered

                                        • Date format display

                                          Allow me to change the format of the way the date is displayed when looking at the document access history. The date format seems to be in US style, with month first. I want to see day first
