      • Add Channel Groups

        Add the functionality create channel groups. This feature would add much more clarity in big teams with many channels.

        Example:

        Team Test

        Channel 1
        Channel 2
        Channel Group (Development) [Collapsible]
        -> Channel XYZ
        -> Work
        -> etc..

        • Show Number Normalization like in Skype for Business

          Presently there is no feedback to the user when using to Dial pad or /Call that the number is being normalized. Unlike in Skype 4 Business when you dial an extension number (and this gets normalized) there is no indication to the user that they are dialing a valid number before they press call

          In this example I'm using 4 digit extensions and I have a normalization rule to translate 5xxx to a full number. Pressing Call will normalize and call the number, but there is no preview of the number, No reverse contact lookup etc

          • Please extend the Teams Mobile App to work with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay

            I'm often on the road and my company relies heavily on online meetings :-) So, we are starting to leverage Teams meetings more and more, so when I'm in my car I need an easy way to join meetings and maybe also read messages. While this is way easier now, than it was in SfB Mobile (thanks!) it would be awesome to have an Android Auto / Apple CarPlay Extension to have a somewhat easier and "nearly hands-free" user experience. This would make me much more productive, even if I'm traveling :-)

            • URL shortener for Teams

              When using the "get link" option in teams it would be better to have an embedded link shortener. Pasting the link in email looks terrible.

              • rubric option for students grading themself

                It would be better if the students can also grade themself with the rubric option so that the teacher can compare his rubric with the one from the student. Hope this would be possible soon.

                • Add optical character recognition to photographing documents and business cards.

                  The Teams mobile app on iOS and Android has settings for photographing documents and business cards, and attaching those to a conversation. This is a pretty neat feature, but let's bring it to the next level. It would be pretty cool if it could also optionally convert these same documents into PDFs, and convert business cards into contacts in Teams.

                  • While in a call, add another person to the call

                    Reopening previous UserVoice post per request of MS Support:
                    https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16952083-while-in-a-call-add-another-person-to-the-call

                    "While in a call, you should be able to add another person (or more than one) to the call, to instantly create a group call. Similar as in Skype by clicking the "+" button."

                    This is NOT completed - this feature, as well as various other features (such as Delegate Call-As) are not available in PSTN calling/Calls tab, only Teams-to-Teams calling (via the Chat tab).

                    These features have been marked as completed in the UserVoice as well as the roadmap but that is not correct.

                    • Time Out Allowances

                      In order to move over to Microsoft Teams Shifts we urgently need the ability to assign an allowance for each of the time off categories.

                      This is to ensure the manager and the employee understand how much time off balance they have. This is something which we asked for in Staffhub which went nowhere due to the app being discontinued.

                      We need to be able to set the allowances in days and hours to suit each team.

                        • Add archiving feature on Teams' posts

                          Considering that teams channel are sometime used for discussing projects, problems, long term plans, etc. in business regardless of the size. Having the possibility to archive an entire post (and its replies) either in an dedicated archive feature added to teams or give the option to send the post to a different teams / channel ( that would be used for various backup decisions or archiving data) would be a great addition to MS Teams.

                          This would go hand in hand with the search feature in Teams to easily find old post that would be relevant reference to a new…

                              Now just Edge support audio and video calls. Making Teams work on all main browsers (IE, Chrome, Safari, Firefox) should be a priority . I need Teams to work with all my customers and I can't force them to install software on their machines.

                              • Teams needs a REAL Calendar!

                                Would love to have a Calendar to allow those in the same team to view each other's availability and whereabouts. Would make it a lot easier to create appointments/meetings.

                                The calendar could be a tab in a channel (so then you could have multiple calendars in one team) or could be an icon on the left app bar, instead of "Meetings" which is helpful to no one.

                                Could also be helpful to add a way for us to add a SharePoint Team calendar.

                                  Today, Teams displays the number of the caller for incoming calls from PSTN. Teams does not display the name of the caller. So I dont know who is calling.

                                  Would be great, if Teams queried the number in my/company Exchange adressbook (and other contact databases, like CRM) and displayed the name of the caller instead of the number.

                                  • Include call history in chat

                                    Am I the only one finding it painfull that the chat history DOES NOT include call logs?

                                    I want to be able to reconstruct to whom I talked how long. As a workaround I started to use Skype again or quit the Teams calls and call back the people by phone.

                                    In Skype this feature helped me a lot when I tried to reconstruct to whom i spoke on days where things became crowded.

                                    Please implement that feature asap!

                                    • Open chat window to newest message

                                      Can you make a feature in the settings to have the chat window automatically switch to the newest IM I received?

                                      When I finish chatting with a contact, I close the Teams window. If I get a new message later on from a different contact, I get the pop up banner, and then the Teams window opens in the task bar and flashes that I have a new message... the problem is that it displays the name of the person I was chatting with previously, not the name of the person who just sent me a new message, and when…

                                      • Chats & Channels Need a Pop Out Option

                                        While working on a document and also chatting with teammates it would be invaluable to have a pop-out option for chat. Ideally we should be able to pop out the individual chat, the entire chat window, and even teams or channels. This would allow for a more efficient day.

                                        • Remember expand/collapse contact groups

                                          The new contact list is now live and it has the option to expand and collapse contact groups. However when I restart teams the are all expanded again.

                                          It would be better if Teams remembered when I collapse a group. then I can for example hide groups of contacts I don't use as often.
