  1. Delete Private Chat threads

    This request is for the ability to completely delete a private chat thread. (Not hide/archive.)

    Again, this was pulled out into its own topic because it is still under review and no decision has been made.

    To recap what has already been completed from the other topic:

    1. Delete your own messages anywhere in Teams.
    2. Team Owners can choose if users can edit/delete in their tenant as well as choose if admins have the power to delete any message posted in public channels.
    3. The ability to hide your private chat threads (these are not the chat threads in…

    try this instead  ·  Suphatra responded

    Hey everyone! We have this already. Just click the ellipses next to the thread name and select “Hide”.

    Note that we cannot provide a “hard delete” due to eDiscovery and other legal reasons.

    Thanks,
    Suphatra

  2. Ability to Mute a Conversation Thread

    Please allow the ability for individual users to mute replies to a thread they have participated in. Allow this to be a toggle located under the three dot menu or an additional hover button.

  3. Facepalm like reaction needed

    A new set of reactions to substitute like functionality is just great. However what we need is a facepalm emoji reaction to convey the true reactions to many posts - let's make it happen!

  5. Share more information with us, please!

    "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…

  7. Allow screen-sharing in Teams Web-App

    Teams Web-App currently does not support screen-sharing or remote session feature like the Teams local application. Please develop this feature in the Teams web-app so that users can share and do remote sharing through a web-browser.

  8. Shifts - Let non owner manage shifts

    Only team members with owner role are able to manage shifts.

    Would be helpfull to define shifts manager seperate from their team role.
    Shifts are also assigned by supervisors, which are only team member and assigning owner role is not desired.

  9. Allow service numbers from a SIP trunk via Teams Direct Routing

    Could you please add support for service numbers (usable with auto attendant or call queues) that come from a SIP trunk connected via Direct Routing? It doesn't make sense to support BYOT with Teams Direct Routing but not having the possibility to use the numbers on the SIP trunk as service numbers for an auto attendant or a call queue.

  10. Integrate Presence in Outlook contacts from Teams

    Whenever Team is running the presence should show on the Outlook contacts. When composing emails and adding users, it should show the presence of Team. It currently works only for skype for business.

  12. 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.

  13. Shifts connector for Flow or Logic apps

    It would be great to have a connector for Shifts to Flow of Logic Apps, just like Stafhub has currently.

    Actions can include:
    - Get a schedule for a team in a certain timeperiod
    - Get the shift for a teammember
    - Get all teammembers with shift X on day Y.
    - Assign shift to teammember(s)
    - Change Shift of teammember(s).

    Triggers can include:
    - When your own shift changes
    - When a new shift is added
    - When there is a request for change/absence etc...

  14. -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…

  15. Import Shifts schedule from Excel/CSV

    Shifts already has export schedule in UI. It would be great to have a option to import schedule as well, so it could be prepared in a external (legacy) system and then easily imported using UI, without need to develop code for upcoming Graph API.
    This would also make possible to create a shift "template" that could be easily uploaded to new Shifts / groups.

    The team has been investigating this issue. Currently, flashing in the taskbar only happens if you have banner notifications enabled in notification settings.

    We are investigating a fix for this, and will keep you posted. In the meantime, hopefully this tip will help.

    Thanks everyone.

  17. 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.

  18. Converting space to non breaking space

    It seems that recently Teams starting converting space characters to non breaking space characters. The text with non breaking spaces doesn't work the same, e.g. a search query that not fails.

  19. Notification of requests in Shifts should be more visible

    When working in Shifts on in the desktop client, new requests are not very obvious. Only some requests can be seen as a pulsating entry in the Monthly view for example, but that requires you to have the month in question in view. You need to open the Requests view in Shifts to see the requests.

    The obvious place for these notifications would be to have them visible in the Activity view in the client, where all other notifications are shown.

    What would also be nice-to-have is to have a specific notification easily visible in Shifts itself, so that as…

  20. Incorporate Dante audio

    The integration of Dante enabled audio for Teams Rooms will provide network integration of large room audio systems. This will ease incorporation with existing facilities as well as facilitate new installations.
