  1. Chat export

    Individual and group chats absolutely has to have the ability to export it out as a word document or such. For a large business sometimes the context of a chat has to be copied out for various reasons and to not have the ability to do that is simply insane. There needs to be an export option (PDF, DOC ECT.) included in chats. Saving one individual message is not adequte.

      • Stop the clickonce userprofile installers! Please!

        Seriously creating a msi, to copy the clickonce **** to the progam files dir is the cheapest and most lazy sollution i have ever seen. I've seen this in smaller companies, but expect a lot better from microsoft.
        You created the msi installer, why not use it? Userprofile installs is not the way forward. Stop it please.

            • Non-licensed Global Admin/Service Admin accounts

              Currently non-licensed MS Teams admins such a service admin or a global admin gets an “access denied” message when using the Microsoft Teams PowerShell module. (Version 0.9.5) There should not be a license check to use this module as it is a common pattern to have non-lincensed privileged / admin accounts for administrative duties in an organization.

              Please see attached and address this.

              • Make code snippet line numbers configurable

                In many cases, when I post a code snippet, it's an excerpt from a longer file. And usually, it's not starting at line 1 in that file.

                While I very much appreciate that code snippets in Teams come with line numbers, it would be great if we could configure the first line number for a given snippet.

                Like that, I could send a message such as: "Hey Jane, have a look at the following block from our file \BusinessLogic\Success\BestClass.cs: <snippet>". For the snippet, I'd set the starting line number to 42 because I've copied lines 42 to 51, and this…

                • Mac Version Isn't Sequential, Breaks Automation

                  Your current Mac version available for download as of Jan 25 2019 installs an app with version 1.00.21761.

                  The previous version was apparently 1.00.131953

                  While 1.00.21 is a higher version than 1.00.13 unfortunately for any software that take into account the entire version string (like automated updaters/patching tools) version 1.00.131953 is a whole 110,192 versions *ahead* of 1.00.21761 :-/

                  This leads to scenarios where Teams may auto-update itself to x.21761 but automated patching sees that the version is now below the x.131953 version in our software repository and so re-installs that version. A fun loop.

                  Then when we add .21761…

                  • Disable USB GPO Not Working with Windows 10 Pro N Edition

                    I have a Group Policy setting configured to Deny Read/Write access to USB drives on all computers. It is applied to the correct OU's, it is not filtered out, and I can see via RSOP & gpresult that this setting is correctly applied to the PCs.

                    However, some Windows 10 PC's do not apply this setting and USB devices can still be accessed regardless of what the GPO settings are.

                    Recently, somebody responded to a post I had made on another site and he was able to identify the issue.

                    As it turns out, the service, Portable Device Enumerator Service,…

                      • Create a local backup of a Team

                        We use a team to manage a project, when this project ends we should be able to backup that Team and remove it.
                        Like a zip, and if someone in the future needs to read the documentation inside that team we should be able to restore it for them.

                        • Importing from Slack, Hipchat, Flowdock, Basecamp, etc.

                          Hi,
                          We are using Slack for a long time and now we are thinking to transition to MS Teams. In Slack it is possible to export all channel content's in JSON with links to files uploaded to slack.
                          It could be very useful to have the ability to import the slack history into MS teams.
