  1. Slow app launch

    Right now it simply loads too slowly, and it has that massive in-your-face splash screen while doing it.

  2. Open PowerBI App in Android like in iOS

    Hi,
    we've tested a tab PowerBI with both iPhones and Android (Samsung). With iPhone the report is opened correctly with the app installed, while this doesn't happen on Android.
    Since in our organization we have mixed devices, we should be able to provide a common UX.
    Best regards

  3. Add TO-Do app as a tab in Teams

    Rather than having to run the To-Do app separately make it a tab in Teams as most to-do items relate to work in Teams

  5. Browser/OS independent desktop notifications using HTML5

    Not sure about the desktop clients because there isn't one available for my operating system. However, the web app is essentially unfit for purpose because I can't tell when anyone is trying to contact me unless I sit there, constantly staring at the app.

  6. Norwegian

    When creating new event/meeting from Teams, the translation of «Title» is wrong («Stilling»). It should be translated to «Tittel».

  7. Battery life on iOS & Android

    According to iOS Battery report, Teams is responsible for 24% of my battery usage. I am not actively running or using the program, so I assume this is related to background tasks / notifications.

  8. @Tag without selection

    Current when @Tagging someone you have to type @PartOfTheirName then wait for the dialog to pop up, then hit tab or enter click the desired name (Person, Channel, Team). If you fail to use the dialog the @Tag fails to work even if you match the name perfectly.

    What we'd like to see is typing @Name or @ChannelName or @TeamName just works even without using the dialog.

    I’m excited to share that I got to use this in our experimental settings the other day. We’ve built it and are testing it internally. I’ll let you know once it moves up in the validation rings!

  10. sharepoint connector

    Create a connector for SharePoint so that it can post into a channel when activity in a SharePoint list or library occurs (e.g. a new item is created or modified). For list items that are modified, it should indicate which column was modified. Currently, something similar can be achieved using Flow, but for most Team owners, creating a flow is too technical.

  11. Dark theme problems!

    See thread for issues related to dark theme. Here are some that are noted:


    1. In dark theme, the warning messages are quite unreadable in the private messaging window


    2. When an email is sent in from Outlook on the Web when I’m using the dark theme, the text in the email is very dark as per the original email. When viewing this email with Teams using the default (light) theme, it looks great.


    3. In Teams chat, no way to turn text back to WHITE, when using the dark theme.


    4. Using the dark theme, I have to hunt around a bit to…

  12. User menu, Saved messages: Translation issue

    Italian for "Saved bookmarks" (the option in the user menu under the status setup) is mistakenly translated to "Salvataggio eseguito", as in "[It] has been saved". The correct translation, based on other translations, should be "Messaggi salvati", as in "Messages (bookmarks) that were saved".

  13. Cloud Storage like Box repeatedly prompts for credentials

    Cloud Storage like Box within Teams, keeps repeatedly prompting for credentials every 30 mins to 1 hour. Please renew the token silently before it expires. This will ease Users to access their files in Box.

  14. Organize App Tab

    Better organization (alphabetize?) of apps in the plus (+) app tab. A clear summary/explanation of what the app does and if it requires purchasing.

    The apps will soon be categorized making it much easier to find what you wish to add for your personal convenience. You will see a Category dropdown list where you can choose which type of apps to view. Some options will be “Communication”, “Files + Documents”, “News and Weather”, “Productivity”, and “Reference” just to name a few. Look for this to be released early in the new calendar year.
    Thank you for your feedback! -Warren

  15. Links/attachments in chat

    If you attach an item to a chat it will be saved in the files section of the channel. But if you are chatting about a document and you want to reference it you do not want to save it to the channel as it is already in another folder of the SP Site. To create a copy in the channel does not make sense as you are creating duplicates. a link would be the solution.

  17. Setting to choose if Private Teams should still be searchable

    We create our Teams as private by default since they are about the clients we work with. We are okay with everyone at the company knowing that these Teams exist, but we don't want them to be able to join them without permission.

    The problem we're having is that people keeping asking 'does a Team exist for client X?' and there is no easy way to answer that question.

    We'd like a way to search for private teams so that folks can request to join them.

  18. Add Cortana

    Imagine this chat conversation between two users:

    Patrick : Sales is doing great now...
    James : Yes but I wonder where we are growing?
    Patrick: @Cortana Show me revenue by country in October 2016
    Cortana: [Shows a graph with top selling countries with a link to the Power BI report]
    James: @Cortana What product sells best in Sweden?
    Cortana: [Answers with text] "Superduper Sport Shoe" has most revenue in Sweden for October 2016.

    Now imagine adding in a bot that can answer questions about inventory or even a procurement bot...

    I am still trying to get details on what we could expect for Cortana in Teams and will share examples once something is available.

  19. Windows app should be in the Windows store

    Even if there won't be a modern UWP app for Teams, the Win32 app should be available through the Microsoft Store so it is discoverable by Windows 10 users (that's where I looked first, with no luck of course).

  20. data retention

    on the settings there needs to be something for enterprise data retention. e.g. after 60 or 90 days data is purged off, or conversations roll off.
