  1. Skype Contact show up, but not Teams Contact

    hen looking for a contact that has Teams and Skype, only the Skype contact shows up.

    I have to go through the history to communicate with the Teams profile. Same name, but impossible to find the Teams profile in Chat. Please fix.

  2. More robust Desktop Notification settings

    For Desktop Notifications:

    - Allow close Notification ("X" in the top right)

    - Allow a notification setting for ONLY showing the "Sender" rather than the "Sender" AND the "Message Text". (similar to iOS message where you see a person texted you but you don't see the message until you unlock the phone and read it)

    - Customize the automatic close timing (right now it defaults to 10-15 seconds for message notifications, would like to shorten to 3-5 seconds)

  3. Add an Agile Planning Poker Plugin

    It would be great to have a plugin for collecting Agile Planning Poker Estimates in Teams. Ideally you could:
    - Geed it a backlog query from on-premises TFS
    - Select a backlog item
    - Collect estimates privately
    - Have them shown all at once and then averaged based on your own formula (straight average, averaged to nearest Fibonacci number, etc.)
    - Have the result fed back into on-premises TFS.

    Even without TFS integration it would still be extremely useful it could handle collection and aggregation of the estimates. It would give us a reason to use Teams over just Skype…

  4. Group Policy Template

    When are the Group Policy Templates going to be available for Microsoft Teams? I want to unify desktop app settings at my company (like disabling Skype Integration) but haven't seen a way to currently achieve that.

  5. small window view needed - similar to IM

    Right now it's just annoying and clunky. I need something small that doesn't take up a ton of space. Already have tons of windows open on my computer.

  6. Add more responses other than "like" to messages

    Let's see more response options other than just "like" on messages, similar to the Facebook and iMessage ability to do multiple responses. Emojis are great, but can clutter up a conversation if someone inserts something that's funny and then everyone piles on with laughing emojis, etc

  7. Show view grouped documents in SharePoint document tab

    Using metadata and group documents is an effective and easy way to find documents view in SharePoint document Libraries. When adding a document Library to the Teams tab I only see the documents without the view, which basically will force me to make folders for not making it a huge list of documents.
    Please make it possible to view the documents in a grouped view in Teams tab!

    Cheers from the north

  8. Provide ability to reply to a Channel root message using Graph API

    Is this support already in the works? If yes, when is it expected to be available?

  10. Blog web part / team plugin for Internal only blogging. "Move to top in Wiki"

    Trying to think of how we could use Teams as an Internal blog. Didn't Sharepoint used to have a Blog web part? Could something like that be introduced into Teams?
    Tried the Wiki but it doesn't look the best.
    Speaking of which - can a "move to top", "move to bottom" be added when trying to rearrange Wiki sections and posts?

  12. Who is being notified

    It would be awesome to see who you are notifying when submitting a @menton of the channel, and not the whole team.

  13. Use well-known names (short codes) for emoticons/emoji

    Amongst others, Github and Slack use a common naming schema for emoji. Teams has a different naming schema for at least part of the emoji set, for example:
    ":ok_hand:" - not present in Teams
    ":disappointed:" - can't even be typed, as soon as ":d" is typed it becomes a Skype emoticon

    Please use a common naming convention that a lot of people have already gotten used to.

  15. chat feature pop ontop of where you are working in Teams

    When working on Word within Teams Desktop application it would be nice for new chat update to pop ontop of the word doc, or at the side if seleceted. At the moment you come out of the word doc into the Chat section, then need to go back into files and find the file you were working on.

  16. Brand it as Skype Teams

    Keep skype as the name, or Skype teams, people say to. Each other's Skype me or we will Skype, and you kill the brand name. And why you almost killed Skype and did not give the option to sync contacts when whatsapp was going, I will share that article with you:

  17. Meetings tab disappeared

    There is no meetings tab available... I'm trying to set-up MS Teams within my company for the first time. I need this feature available or else the adoption will end before it started.

  19. Enable markup on website tabs like in edge - so collaborative markup

    It would be great if people can collaborate on the website tab - think multiple people using the edge markup tool, this will allow greater use of this tab rather than something just for information.
