    This item is still under review. I’ll keep following up with the feature team.

  2. Allow to post a reply to a conversation via REST

    Currently it is quite easy to start a conversation via the webhook of a channel.

    It would be great if the POST of this webhook would return an conversation id. This id could then be used in a subsequent request to reply to the initial conversation.

  3. provision

    It would be great if we could provision teams and channels with a template like Microsoft PNP. In the case of provsioning i would like to be able to add tabs bot connectors and compesed extentions in pre configured in a json or xml template. Rolled out with C#, JS or Powershell.

    hope we can get this uservoice request activated.

  5. Keyboard shortcuts to type Umlaute and other international characters

    In other O365 apps I can use keyboard shortcuts to type international characters on an English keyboard, for example, ç = ctrl+, and c, or ä = ctrl+: and a. See https://support.office.com/en-us/article/keyboard-shortcuts-for-international-characters-108fa0c1-fb8e-4aae-9db1-d60407d13c35. This is missing in Teams.

  6. Add message to "you got a new team"-email

    When I add new members to a team I would like to add a message to the "you got a new team"-email. Just like that I can add a message when I share a file from OneDrive or SharePoint.

  7. Nested Groups exceeded the Max Limit of 25

    There is probably a suggestion for better integration for AD groups, but creating a team for Engineering our existing DL's are used to manage all membership. Adding a DL to a Team, that has many nested DL's does not seem allowed.

    Need to
    1/ support AD Groups as a first class citizen
    2/ support for nested DL's that are greater than 25

  8. Better Team Permission Control

    The current team settings are very bare-bones.

    For instance, there's a single permission that allows for adding/modifying/removing tabs. These should all be separate permissions.

    For the sake of usability, there could be a "master" permission for each piece of functionality (tabs, channels, connectors, etc...) and an expandable list of the sub-options where, if you didn't want to give a certain role all of the permissions for a certain functionality, you could give a role a subset of the create/modify/remove permissions.

    Thank you all very much for the great response. The survey is now closed. The feature team will be reviewing all the data that was gathered and responded based on the findings.
    Again, thank you for helping us make Microsoft Teams the best it can be.

  9. Files tab no longer opens General folder

    The link to the General folder in the associated SharePoint document register is broken. This prevents attachment to be added to Conversations. Please make it possible to edit the Files link so that correct function can be reestablished. This would also allow people to use the Files tab to point to their prefered location rather than a predefined location based on Channel Name. This is a serious issue inhibiting adoption of Teams in my Company.

  10. Add more area to grip the title bar

    The new ui changes make it very hard to move the desktop app around the screen. There are too many buttons on the title bar now and it seems the only grip point is between the search bar and the org link. It is very easy to miss click when trying to move the window around your desktop. I think that the search box should be reduced to add more title bar.

  11. Please support symbols like % in filenames

    We have many files which have symbols like % in them. Currently we cant send / upload them with teams. It's not a solution to always change the filename

  12. Inactive desktop notification period is too short

    I don't want mobile notifications after being inactive for only three minutes on the desktop.

    The period should be configurable or at least 10 or 15 minutes

  13. Tag Files for Searchability

    As we upload files, it would be great to have the option to add Tags for the files. That way, when utilizing search, we could enter tags to be able to find results based on the tags specified.

    This feature is still under review. The feature team is digging into the details but have not made a decision yet.

  14. Embed Media

    If you paste a link it should embed the media right in the chat (Gif, mp4, youtube, Vimeo, Soundcloud etc.)

  15. Templates for Planner

    Would be good if we could have predefined templates for planner that we can then use for repetitive tasks eg onboarding a new starter.

    This is a feature we had in Asana and have lost since moving to teams

  16. 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.

  18. STOP CHANGING WHAT I TYPE

    I absolutly HATE the way that when I type something chances are it's going to change to be something I didn't type. I would like to see the live preview of everything removed completely and for this to use github flavored markdown along with a consistent emoji syntax :joy:

  20. Second Planner Tab in Teams, does not show up in Planner

    When I create a second Planner tab in Teams, it does not appear in Planner. But I can open the tab via the link in Teams. The data from the second tab also does not appear in the Planner Dashboard. I think it's a bug.
