  1. hyperlink

    Ability to click on phone numbers / email addresses as a hyperlink within the mobile app.

    If a message contains a phone number, it should automatically be recognized as a phone number within the mobile app. Thus clicking it should initiate a phone call from the mobile phone's dialer. Similar concept with email addresses.

    • Add search on every chat session not just a common one

      Add search on every chat session not just a common one. Its really hard to search globally. Adding a search option under each chat session would help a lot.

          • Outlook send to groups disappearing documents

            When using the Send to Groups function directly from Outlook (which works fantastically) .. the document is saved in the root library which is fine only in Teams you can't see the root library anywhere as the general channel defaults into a general folder :/

            Potential for this to be an outlook update where you can also select a folder before sending to group ./.. or allowing the general channel to view the standard 'all Docs' view in the SP library?

              • View chat in strict date order

                Ability to view all chat messages in strict date order, irrespective of recipient, sender, thread or context.

                It's similar to the Skype for Business conversation history that allows me to review my interactions over a week, more or less in date order. However, with Teams Chat, there's simply no way to do this as chat history is presented according to the most recent date of chat by contact.

                • I want to save changes but NOT send an update to everyone.

                  I am trying to get the time corrected for my 'meeting' but it would let me save without sending to everyone. I would like to choose 'when' I send the update to everyone and not everytime I try a correction.

                  your 'TIME' selection is really not working for me and I have to fix it everytime!

                  AND I have NOT IDEA WHAT You would like me to title my questions or suggestions!

                  • Create a plan without a group

                    Creating a new plan in planner should NOT automatically create an entire new group with a sharepoint space, calendar, etc etc. Not every plan needs all these bells and whistles. There should be options to create a new group, add to existing group, or add to existing channel that is the child of a group.

                    Additionally, there should be a way to see an aggregated view of all planner tasks in subchannels of a parent group. We are using a Team to manage a program of projects with channels for the individual projects. Lack of this capability prevents having a…

                      • Close (x on the top right corner or ALT+F4) behavior

                        Close (x on the top right corner or ALT+F4) should allow 3 options: 1) minimize to taskbar, 2) minimize to tray, or 3) close app. Right now it only allows options 2 and 3. Historically Lync and Skype allowed "close = minimize to tasksbar" which is convenient since this is the kind of app users want to have always running and visible in the taskbar. I agree some users may not like having it always in taskbar, that's what option #2 is for.

                          It should be possible to attach files to chats with bots in the desktop client. In the mobile client it is possible to send images to the bot.

                            • Format correctly for copy and paste

                              When copy and pasting from an excel cell Teams is maintaining the cell formatting, causing for the text to need a scroll box to read correctly. Given Teams is not Excel it should be employing word wrapping to display the text correctly.

                                  • Wiki should be in the channel's documents folder in SharePoint

                                    Currently, the wiki for a channel gets saved to some arbitrary place in SharePoint. It would make much more sense for it to get saved with other documents in the channel. A wiki folder could be added to each channel folder that can't be changed/moved, but the contents could be accessible from other contexts.
                                    The channel wiki is an awesome feature for software teams, it just needs to be accessible without having to be on that team.

                                      • Please make a way to save subfolder/document favorites on the side panel!

                                        We often use the same subfolders over and over again, and it would save time to not have to navigate through a folder several times a day if it were saved as a favorite on the side panel.

                                        • Make T-Bot understand questions about permissions

                                          The question T-Bot fluffed was not HOW can I create a team but CAN I create a team? The usual problem with Microsoft products is the maze of permissions and the difficulty in figuring out who can fix permissions. Make T-Bot smart about permissions and who to ask to grant permissions. Or better still, give us some relief from permissions-from-****.
