  1. URL Scheme

    URL Scheme for iOS and Android app - forexample ms-teams://user@organization.com will launch Teams and goto chat screen of the "user". URL Scheme can be extended to various features of the MS Teams app. This will help customize Employee App all organization have. Enabling Office 365 directly integrating to these app. Currently, I am using ms-outlook:// to integrate Email feature in the app I am working.

  3. Add an option to make Banners "sticky" so they would only go away after being acknowledged or dismissed

    It'd be nice if unread updates to a channel or direct chat would result in a persistent banner that would stay on screen until I read the message or dismissed the notification.

  4. Add team wide reminders

    We have weekly bot reminders currently on Slack and that would be a big advantage to getting our whole team moved over.

    For example:
    - Tuesdays at noon: Reminder - team meeting in 30 minutes
    - Last Friday of month: Finish submitting hours
    - etc....

  5. Accent shortcuts (like in Word) don't work

    In Word, if I type CTRL+SHIFT+^ followed by u I get a û. Similar shortcuts exist to get characters such as é à ö ç.

    These shortcuts don't work when I type them in Teams.

    2. Wait for 1-2 seconds for MS Teams window to open

    3. Press enter (first match chat window is opened, message field is focused) …

  7. Time limit for editing/deleting posts

    We would need an admin setting to set a time limit for how long users should be able to edit/delete their posts/conversations.
    Owner should be able to delete without a limit but members should be able to edit/delete for example for only 15 minutes.

  8. Show all Content Types in 'New' dropdown from Files tab

    When adding additional content types to a SharePoint library surfaced in a Files tab in Teams, the content types do not appear under the 'New' option inside the Files tab in Teams. They do appear in SPO.

    In this example a new Content Type based on a Word file template has been added to the Document Library called 'Decision paper'. Here's what that looks like:
    From the Files tab: https://i.imgur.com/uEzVHwV.png
    From SharePoint: https://i.imgur.com/JRhLovZ.png

  9. Integration of Microsofts Q&A bot into team-channels

    Microsoft has a Q&A bot-maker.
    There should be the possibility to create/integrate a Q&A bot within a channel/team.
    The Q&A bot should scan questions in the channel and answer questions that where previously already answered.

  10. Let me @ Mention the user's first name instead of their DisplayName

    Hi,
    When mentioning someone with @, is it possible to use the user alias instead of the Display Name? In Slack for example, it is possible to choose whether to display the full name or the user name when being mentioned. Could be great to have it on MS Teams because it is shorter in messages where many mentions are provided.

  11. Chat heads

    Can you make a chat head feature like what we have in Facebook? It would be easier to go back and forth with your chat messages while you are doing something on other areas of MS teams (i.e. channels).

  12. Rule: Only Members of a security group should be allowed to add Guest users on MSTeams

    Issue Description: Customer want to ensure that only certain people can do this. These people are:
    1. Owner of the Team
    2. In the group FPDOXKUEXTERN (Security Group) the group is on SharePoint Admin Center > Sharing > Who can share outside your organization

  13. Importing from Slack, Hipchat, Flowdock, Basecamp, etc.

    Hi,
    We are using Slack for a long time and now we are thinking to transition to MS Teams. In Slack it is possible to export all channel content's in JSON with links to files uploaded to slack.
    It could be very useful to have the ability to import the slack history into MS teams.

  16. Removed users can see notifications and partial text on threads which they commented


    1. Add a user to a private team

    2. Have the user comment on a thread

    3. Remove the user's access to the team

    4. The removed user will still receive notifications every time a different user replies to that thread.

    5. The user will see the preview text in the notification

    6. When the user clicks the notification, they do not have access (as expected)

  17. Can we have an option to get rid of the Store icon in Teams?

    Yeah, I get it, Microsoft wants to sell ****.

    In a corporate environment, though, I can't actually buy anything. Nor do I want anything except a collaboration app that isn't a pain **********. So the icon is just more clutter in what I feel is an already-cluttered interface.

    (I'm sure there are free apps in the store; I just don't care.)

  18. In the german translation, please use 'du' instead of 'sie'

    Please don't use the way too formal 'Sie', but instead 'Du'. This totally disturbs the user experience

  19. Custom Team Member Roles

    Currently for any given team, there are only two options: member or owner.

    This only allows for two tiers of permissions. It would be great if there was the ability to either add custom roles to add more granularity for adding/removing permissions for different tiers of teammates.

  20. Allow moving a tab between channels

    Allow moving any tab, besides files and conversation, between channels in a group. On top of being able to dragging tabs to rearrange them in a channel, allow us to drag the tab to a different channel altogether. If any conversation topics at about items in that tab, it would be nice to have those seamlessly migrate to the new channel as well.

    For bonus points: Allow moving a tab between groups, in the event a group needs to be 'discontinued' without losing the data.
