  1. 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.

    • Reporting Capabilities

      We are after reporting capabilities to capture granular detail on activity within Teams.

      We would like to have data capturing:
      1. Number of users enabled
      2. Number of daily active unique users
      3. Breakdown of devices uniquely used
      4. Number of teams created
      5. Number of teams deleted
      6. How many instant messages sent overall in the Chat
      7. How many calls made in Teams
      8. Number of files shared in channels
      9. How many combined ‘likes’ have been made over a period of time

        Thank you so much for your support of the product. This request was particularly helpful and we appreciate your engagement in the surveys, comments and forum to help us design this feature. Please continue to submit ideas!

        For this item, we’re making great progress. It has now entered TAP validation with a small group of tenants. Will let you know how that goes!

      • Skype Room System + Teams doesn't provide dial pad once a call is connected

        Using a Skype Room System with an E5 license allows you to initiate a telephone call either via Skype or via Teams. When using the Teams option, you can dial a telephone # but once connected the dial pad is no longer accessible. When dialing into a conference #, this is often required in order to enter a PIN or conference code. The Skype option allows this dial pad access after a call is connected.

        • Create alias mention groups, or mention DLs like @here (Slack has this)

          Can we @mention everyone in the team at once (group) instead of using @ for every single name?

          Also, can we use a different first name than the system because people goes by different name?
          It will help if we can copy and paste the @ mention for new conversation.

          Basically, I'm looking to be able to create an "@" alias for different groups of people within a team.

          Use Case:
          We have a team with 3 designers, 2 mobile devs, 2 strategists, and 2 web devs. It would be nice to have the ability to set up tags like…

          • Integrate Shifts with Outlook Calendar

            Once a schedule is complete in Shifts and then Shared with the team, it should show up in Outlook calendar as a separate calendar so that each individual can quickly see if there are any conflicts with other work or personal commitments. An alternative is that it populates in Planner.

              • Better visual delineation between `Reply` and `Start a new conversation`

                It's very confusing to new users that there is a difference between replying to an existing conversation and starting a new one within a channel. This is a visual thing as much as anything else. The 'reply' buttons are not naturally attractive if you just want to start typing a message. There should be a logical gap between the bottom of a conversation and 'start a new conversation'. 'Start a new conversation' needs to be separated visually, as if it's a second order command rather than a first order...reply.

                • 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.

                  • Screen Sharing - add an "actual size" button to show the presenter's desktop resolution

                    It is difficult for viewers with poor vision to see desktops that are shared. HDMeeting and other videoconferencing apps have a UI element to show the 'actual size' of the display resolution.

                    Users can use the zoom button to enhance the Teams call controls, but not the shared screen.

                      • Include Office 365 group calendar in teams

                        It would be good to be able to click on a calendar button on the left hand side to get a view of the Office 365 groups calendar as you would in the calendar app. Good for being able to look and get a glimpse of what is coming up with the group. At the moment I have to go back to the calendar to look at it.

                              Currently in Teams it takes two mouse clicks to close a chat conversation. In Skype there is a "X" to close the conversation. This results in a single mouse click to close out a conversation window.
                              This makes it easy to rapidly close out any open conversatations you are finished with. It would be nice to have this same function in Teams.
                              The X could go either to the left of the CHAT name or next to the "...".

                              Also it is very easy for your "RECENT CHAT" tab to get filled up with several conversations and takes a long…

                              • Allow copying whole chat conversations

                                Currently, it's not possible to select & copy more than one message in a chat. When I try to select two or more messages, the focus stays on the first message making it impossible to copy whole chat.

                                There are some really ugly workarounds like: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Copying-conversations/td-p/62849 which I don't consider a solution of the situation.

                                I want to be able to select multiple messages at once and copy them by hitting CTRL+C.

                                    Download Improvements

                                    Generally the download experience with Teams is pretty poor and I'm amalgamating suggestions in to one

                                    - Configuration of download location other than default download folder
                                    - Download progress and fixing of hanging UI when downloading file
                                    - Permanent notification to user in chat/team room or even a downloaded management area showing downloaded files with a direct link to open file
                                    - Ability to open file directly from notification
                                    - Ability to open folder from all areas download is listed
                                    - Ability to download to a different one time location from the file hamburger menu

                                    • Be able to choose different device for ringing

                                      When I don't have my headset on I cannot hear when somebody calls.
                                      Should have an option to ring on a different device e.g. Skype 7.41.x. See attached.

                                      • Spell check in muliple languge

                                        It would be nice if it was possible to have the Teams desktop app in one languge and spell checking in multiple languge and at the same time customize date and time format.

                                        E.g. I would like to have Teams in English, have spell checking in English and Danish, and have date and time format in "Danish".

                                        • Mute a channel - (Mute Chat is complete)

                                          I'd love to keep groups/channels in my list, but mute a channel so I don't get those. I get notified whenever some tags a channel eg @General, it's super distracting!

                                          Also would like the possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received for a user that chooses to mute some group chat.

                                            working on it  ·  Warren responded

                                            Mute a channel is still being worked upon. The team is still hard at work on this item. No updates at this time.
