  1. Allow assignment of more than one individual to each task in Planner.

    Currently, when I create a task I can only assign one person. If I try to assign a second person to a task the original assigned person is replaced by the new person. Thus, I am unable to assign more than one person to a task. In a team based environment it is critical to have the ability to assign more than one individual to a task.

    I confirmed that this item is completed. Support shipped in February. Reply and notifications will work. (Reply will work if notifications are turned on.)

    Please note that your phone controls notifications. You will need to ensure you have Teams notifications turned on to receive notifications and be able to reply to the notification from your Apple Watch.

    -Warren

  3. Grouping of notifications for mobile apps

    I'd like to see the mobile apps either group notifications or show that you have "multiple notifications" (perhaps one for each chat), instead of as it is now when you get one for each single message - this quickly pollutes the message center.

    This was done in July. I saw a few comments after July from folks who said they weren’t seeing this on their phones. Let me know if that’s still the case — just email at sparavi@microsoft.com. Likely it’s been fixed on your phones by now.

    Thanks!

  4. Make ordinary phone calls from work number using a dialer in Teams

    I can make calls from Skype for Business by entering a phone number. I couldn't find the same feature on MS Teams

  5. Increase user limit

    Right now there is a cap at 600 users, which is preventing many of the discussion groups I belong to from switching over! Please increase the limit to be in the upper thousands.

    Thanks to your feedback, we’ve done the work to get your Teams user limit from 600 to 999.

    If you start adding more users, please let me know how it goes — just tweet me at @skprufo.

    Cheers,

    Hi everyone, our meetings just got a lot smarter.

    Here are a couple new things you can do:

    1. Schedule a private meeting. You can schedule a private meeting with anyone in your organization! They’ll be able to join by clicking “Meetings” on the left side of the app.

    2. Meetings have a smart new scheduling assistant. Our new scheduling assistant will let you know when all your invitees are free to meet. The scheduling assistant also provides a calendar view of the coming week that will show you when all your meeting attendees are busy or unavailable.

    Let me know if you have any questions! If you love the scheduling assistant as much as I do, tell us on Twitter with the hashtag #MicrosoftTeams and I’ll pass it on to the dev team.

    Happy Friday,
    Suphatra

  7. Needs Email notification

    Need a feature like Skype, so that when someone is not logged in, they get email notification if someone sent the a message they missed.
    should also be able to minimize conversations, so that unless they are expanded or active, you only see the original message.

    We currently send email notifications for missed chat messages or @-mentions in channels. Please let us know if this isn’t working for you and we will troubleshoot. Please note, we currently do not send email notifications for any missed message in a channel – this is a requested feature that is in our backlog.

  8. Copying text in Microsoft Teams

    The ability to copy and paste Ctrl+C works but right clicking highlighted text and trying to copy doesn't work. Personally I'm fine with it since I always use Ctrl+C but I have heard others complain about it.

    You should now be able to copy text both ways — with the Ctrl short cut as well as your right mouse click. If it doesn’t work for you, please check that you are on the latest version of the product.

  9. show emails sent to Teams in the Teams interface

    Emails sent to teams only show up in the Outlook Group. They should be visible in the Team interface as well. One location, multiple inputs.

    We have this now! When you email a Teams channel, it will show up in the channel with the email message visible to the channel. You will also be able to see the sender and download the email.

  10. search tool needs to search notes content

    The search tool in MS Teams needs to provide results from content within notes & the files saved to the Teams site.

    The search tool can search through files. After you type a term into the search field, just click the “Files” tab that will appear underneath the search field. That will retrieve all the files that have that search term in its content. Let me know if you have any questions!

  11. Display message on the notification

    When a message is going to notify me, I'd like to see the message in the notification instead of a general "XXX has replied to your message", etc.

  16. Support multi-byte character for Team

    It is very nice if Team name allows multi-byte character. Currently it failed with following message in Japanese.


    次の文字はサポートしていません: ~#%&*{}+/\:<>?

    it means "Following characters are not supported : ~#%&*{}+/\:<>?"

  17. Files deleted in channel, not in SharePoint Recycle Bin

    I have a channel in Teams called; Phil-Test
    In SharePoint (Office 365 Groups), I then have a folder called; Phil-Test
    (It relates as you would expect)

    In that folder is a file called; Phil-Test.docx
    That file is in the Teams under Files. It is also in the respective Office 365 Group

    Issue:
    Good: If I delete the file from SharePoint (Office 365 Group), it goes to the SharePoint Recycle Bin
    Bad: If I delete the file from insite the Teams, the file disappears completely, and is NOT in the SharePoint Recycle Bin

    We’ve implemented easier file recovery a couple months ago. So if you are afraid that deleted file is lost forever—don’t worry! Now, deleted files that were originally shared in a channel or a SharePoint tab will get sent to your SharePoint Recycle Bin. That way, if you ever need to recover a deleted file, you can head over to SharePoint and dig it out of the trash, so to speak.

  19. Provide the option to save login credentials on the Windows client. :)

    Provide the option to save login credentials on the Windows client. Presently the Windows client doesn't save login credentials nor provide the option for doing so. :)
