    "How can you make Microsoft Teams better?"
    > This is no technical feature..

    1. More updates on top X ideas. More interaction with the people who are using the App. People who take the effort to post/vote ideas feel left out if you stop providing updates or don't respond at all. This is not just a forum that can exist without a moderator. This is an enterprise corperation's official UserVoice site. Meaning, no voice of the corporation = bad

    2. Provide an up to date roadmap. The current roadmap is great, it looks nice (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=Microsoft%20Teams%2CLaunched). Sadly most uservoice…

      • Shifts- let the lunch hours be copied with the shift itself

        Right now, you can create a shift and add an un-paid lunch, but that DOES NOT copy to the rest of the week/schedule if you copy/paste that shift. It would be nice to "default" a non-paid lunch on an 8-5 or 9-6 shift.

          • complicated

            Teams is too complicated to use for most of those people not specialists with computer, looks like it is much suitable for IT department. you know why Chinese WeChat is so popular? Just because its easy to start for everyone, even those who don't know how to type or how to use apps.

            We don't expect everyone in the company knows everything about computer, but knows his work to handle.

              • Save Conversations to Outlook

                We are moving from Lync/Skype to Microsoft Teams at work. One of the features Lync had was the ability to have conversations automatically saved to a folder in outlook.

                This gave me the ability to have a record of a conversation that could be attached to emails as needed.

                If Microsoft Teams has this functionality, I have not been able to find it. I can only see the ability to copy and paste a conversation, which is easily editable.

                Does Microsoft Teams have this capability or are there plans to add it?

                  • Microsoft Teams Free not usable/accessible

                    I try to promote Microsoft Teams by recommending the usage of Microsoft Teams Free to my contact partners, especially to use the 'share the desktop' functionality.

                    But none of the three persons who tried to install the Microsoft Teams Free app on their windows PC were able to get the app run. It stuck in the process of registering or creating an account. There was the massage "Sie sind noch nicht in teams aber Sie können es für Ihre organisation einrichten" and then there was a loop with always coming back to the starting page of the registering process.

                    These…

                      • How can we add external org contacts in Teams. this was relatively easy to do in skype for business but not in Temas

                        I have enabled external access in org-wide settings, but in Teams, I still cannot add external users.

                        The message in teams says, we can't set up the conversation because your org are not set up to talk to each other.

                        In skype for business, we regularly talk to each other. so both orgs are set up. In teams it does not want to add the same contact

                            • Allow a different channel/page as a starting point

                              It would be great if it were possible to make the landing page more of a welcome page, to give team members some insight into what channels are available, etc. I find it very confusing to get dumped into the conversations as the landing point.

                                • Have a comment system with simple / non jargon categories

                                  * Less is more - really gets confusing when you have more than 10 to choose from and I’ll probably choose the wrong one (which will pigeon-hole my suggestion)
                                  * what exactly is “power bar”, “surface hub” and “VPI hub”? My guess is these are for subsets of UI issues. I’m probably sending my UI suggestions down the wrong channel.
                                  Does anyone outside of Microsoft know what these categories mean?

                                    • Tabs: explain clearly the options for Add a Tab

                                      I'm using Teams for the first time today. I want to Add a Tab. The pop-up for Add A Tab has many nice graphics for "Tabs for your Team". I don't want any of those. I just want a new Tab that has identical functionality to the Files Tab already provided. Please include the option of adding another Files-type Tab (and re-naming it, of course) so I can have "Files to Edit' and "Files - Reference". Thank you.

                                        Allow a user to share a link to the Help > Browse Topics page and sub-pages. Currently, the only way to share the page is to tell the user to click Help > Browse Topics but it would be even easier if you can share this page and all sub-pages to quickly show someone how to do a specific task in Teams.

                                        • Help Videos Start with Sound On (Turn off Auto-Mute)

                                          The Help section's Videos all start with the volume muted. Is there a design reason for this? Why the extra step to click to unmute? I would assume that users wanting to watch these videos (by clicking on them) with sound.
