    This feature has completed and is now available to the public! Within your channels you will find a Tabs section where your Files, Notes, as well as the Planner.

    However, please note that for Windows Phone this item was “Declined” and will not be made available.

  2. Reuse existing file in chat

    In the chat if you press the attachment icon you can select files that already exist in the channel/team, this is great if you want to talk about them without opening them first.

    BUT, the system will try to re-upload the file and the default action is to overwrite the file. I guess this will confuse users and possibly break same time collaboration. Renaming is even worse since it will create a copy just because I want to talk about the file.

    I suggest that if the file already exists within teams you only will get an embed experience rather…

    Hi folks, my earlier post showed how to do this using Files. However, we have a new feature where every channel has an email address, and you can forward emails directly into that channel. This will also meet your needs.

    To use it, just click the ellipses next to the channel name and choose “Get Email Address”. Then forward the email to that email address, and you’ll see it appear in your channel. From that thread, you can tag your coworkers to start discussion and work on that item.

    Thanks and have a great weekend,
    Suphatra

  4. Compliance

    E-discovery and Legal Holds need to be added for this to be used by orginizations that require all data to be able to be litigated.

  6. 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

  8. 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!

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

    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.

    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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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.

    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!

  16. 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.
