  1. 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.

      • Provide a much more obvious indicator that a Team has "Guests"

        My organization is EXTREMELY worried that a user may post something in a Team that has Guests without realizing external Customers may be in the Team. We are using the nomenclature that a Team name in ALL CAPS is a Team with external people, but it would be great if we could turn on a Banner on Posts (similar to the "This post will be seen by 65 people") in red or yellow so it's very very apparent that you are posting something external people can see.

            • Create teams meeting from calendar using OWA

              When using calendar on OWA, there is no way to create a Microsoft Teams meeting. You need to create it from Microsoft Teams instead.

              Please add the functionality to create a meeting from Calendar using OWA

                The OWA team has added a “Teams meeting” toggle in the new meeting item, as a preview feature. If you’d like to try it out, please turn on ""the new Outlook" toggle in the upper right corner. We’ll set this to completed once it’s fully released by the OWA team.

                Thanks!

                Looking for the ability to create a channel that only channel members can see. Private channels are available in slack. There is an admin for private channels who is the creator, and they are the ones who add/remove users.

                • Transfer to voicemail option

                  In Skype for Business and most other phone systems, you can select to transfer a caller directly to voicemail (receptionists use this all the time). Teams does not have this option. It is very important for folks to not transfer to a ring-ring-ring experience if they simply need to leave a voicemail.

                            The team is still working on this fix, as part of a larger design change. Given internal feedback, it has been decided the current design isn’t ready for primetime.

                            In the meantime, someone discovered that triple clicking will actually select all of the text. I know we want the real fix, but thought I’d share.

                            Thanks for your patience.

                          • Add a "Raise Your Hand" feature in meetings

                            When in a meeting with multiple people it would be nice to have a way to signal that you would like to speak so that you can be called upon by the meeting organizer.

                            This would allow users to show they have something to say, but they do not want to interrupt

                                  Teams is limited to showing 4 video streams at a time, it would be better if we had some control over that. We do a morning standup every morning with 8 remotes, it would be great if we could see them at all times.

                                    Please allow adding granular SharePoint document library subfolders to the Files tab. Currently, only the document library level can be added, not sub folders.

                                    This allows adding content from related but separate SharePoint sites without having to provide the entire document library (which may contain irrelevant content to the Team)

                                    • Audio and Video call on every browser

                                        • Merge last message with existing reply thread

                                          However, for this feature I'd just like an easy way to fix it after the fact. Currently I can copy the message I just typed, pasted it into the original thread and then delete it if I'm fast enough and copy/paste wants to cooperate.
