  1. Private conversation inside a Public conversation

    Looking to use Teams as an internal Crowdsourcing initiative.

    Is there any possibility to switch from a Public conversation (meaning that the conversation under the channel is visible to all the members of that particular group) to a Private conversation (meaning that only 2 people will be able to see it and it will be hidden for the other members)?

    This should apply no matter if the users are internal or guest/external.

    Thanks,
    Stefano

  2. Need prompt before updating on MAC

    Every time there is an update for the desktop client (at least on Mac) the client updates automatically without prompting the user, which always seems to invalidate the session. There should be an option to prompt the user before the client is updated. (similar to how VS Code does it, perhaps)

  3. Ability to Add tabs in the Teams Mobile App

    Currently the ability to add tabs to MS Teams via mobile devices or iPad is not available. this makes owners go to the desktop version setup the tab and then work in mobile device.

    would be good if we get an option to add tabs in mobile devices.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  8. Make Subject line visible by default on new conversations

    When starting a NEW conversation in a Channel, the subject line should be displayed by default and not hidden underneath the rich text expand button. Subject lines are very useful not only to let people know what that conversation is about, but also for searching later to return to the conversation after it has scrolled away some. We've enforced this on a few times internally using the honor system and have seen considerable success with keeping conversations on topic and getting people using the threading features.

    You wouldn't send an email without a Subject would you? Why should Teams be…

  9. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. Quicker way to find contact and start conversation

    Starting new conversation with colleague via teams (4-6 seconds, 7+ steps):
    1. Mouse click on pinned MS Teams on taskbar
    2. Wait for 1-2 seconds for MS Teams window to open
    3. Mouse click on "Search"
    4. Enter contact name
    5. Mouse click or down+enter to open chat
    6. Mouse click/focus message field
    7.Type + enter, message sent

    Compared to Skype for business (1-3 seconds, 4 steps):
    1. Double click on taskbar Skype icon - window opens instantly
    2. Start typing contact name ("Search" is focused automatically)
    3. Press enter (first match chat window is opened, message field is focused)…

  14. 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.

  15. 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).

    We are looking into having multiple windows for Teams.

    And thank you for the interesting idea!

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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

  19. 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.
