  1. Create alias mention groups, or mention DLs like @here (Slack has this)

    Can we @mention everyone in the team at once (group) instead of using @ for every single name?

    Also, can we use a different first name than the system because people goes by different name?
    It will help if we can copy and paste the @ mention for new conversation.

    Basically, I'm looking to be able to create an "@" alias for different groups of people within a team.

    Use Case:
    We have a team with 3 designers, 2 mobile devs, 2 strategists, and 2 web devs. It would be nice to have the ability to set up tags like…

  2. Copying text is pants

    Currently trying to select text to copy in an indidual message is almost impossible.

    When copying, it either overlays the Save and Like icons or copies the text below as well.

    We're having to past text into word docs to get the trimmed data we need

  3. Phone ring

    Please add the device choice for incoming call ringing,

  4. Be able to choose different device for ringing

    When I don't have my headset on I cannot hear when somebody calls.
    Should have an option to ring on a different device e.g. Skype 7.41.x. See attached.

  5. Shifts- let the lunch hours be copied with the shift itself

    Right now, you can create a shift and add an un-paid lunch, but that DOES NOT copy to the rest of the week/schedule if you copy/paste that shift. It would be nice to "default" a non-paid lunch on an 8-5 or 9-6 shift.

  6. Time Out Allowances

    In order to move over to Microsoft Teams Shifts we urgently need the ability to assign an allowance for each of the time off categories.

    This is to ensure the manager and the employee understand how much time off balance they have. This is something which we asked for in Staffhub which went nowhere due to the app being discontinued.

    We need to be able to set the allowances in days and hours to suit each team.

  8. Allow direct file attachment to Planner Tasks in TEAMS

    Provide ability to attach a document to a Planner Task from your Desktop (like you can do in a SP task).  Today, you have to upload the document into Teams first, then open your Planner Task and then attach by referencing the previously uploaded document.

  9. Allow Channel Level Security

    Allow Channel level security in addition to Team level security. This will allow for better cross collaboration. Commonly, you will have a set of internal org team members, but projects (channels) may contain external resources. It would be highly useful to simply give guest access at the channel level and once a project is done, simply delete or archive the channel, not have to remove Team guest users every time. This also solves the issue of having a large amount of Teams to control what guest users can see. Instead of 20 teams with different guest in each team, you…

  10. notifications

    I am unable to get any pop-up notifications on my phone from the Teams app. I have checked the following settings: On the app:
    Menu/Settings/Notifications:

    Send Notifications - "Always, even if active on desktop"

    Push Notifications - All selected

    Sound - set on with vibrate

    On the phone:

    Settings/Notifications:

    Teams set to notify

    Advanced:

    Allow Notifications selected

  11. Integrate Microsoft FindTime

    Would love to have the ability to post a Microsoft FindTime poll within a Team for scheduling meetings within the group. It's already a plugin for Outlook, integrating it with Teams could allow a quick FindTime poll with the members of the team, rather than having to manually select each member of the team every time a poll is needed.

  12. Compact mode

    I really like Teams. I do. But the current chat layout is not suited for professional chats. It's way to space consuming. It looks like something imported from MSN with smiley's that take half of the screen. I would say that Slack have nailed it because they focused on the ability keeping a tight window with lots of chat text visible. In Teams the window is full and starts scrolling after like 10 sentences.

  13. Teams Meetings Analytics

    Hello, currently we are hosting several meetings for big groups of people (1000+) and we want to be able to generate reports for attendance and time tracking. Some KPIs we are hoping Teams may launch are:
    - Who joined the meeting
    - Joining Time
    - Leaving Time
    This will be useful to generate meeting reports, follow-ups, and general meeting services because currently the only option to track attendance is via snapshots of the attendee list or manually capturing all attendee data on the meeting notes section

    Thank you very much!

  14. Add Channel Groups

    Add the functionality create channel groups. This feature would add much more clarity in big teams with many channels.

    Example:

    Team Test

    Channel 1
    Channel 2
    Channel Group (Development) [Collapsible]
    -> Channel XYZ
    -> Work
    -> etc..

  16. Translation Teams (Mobile App)

    Translation of Team conversation works prety well in the Teams Client. The Mobile Client (e.g. IOS App) the Translation is not possible. If you could add this possibility, Teams could work with this Feature also from mobile devices and are not excluded from the conversation as Long as the are not online with their full Client.

  17. Support for Citrix and RDS Environments

    Support for the desktop Teams application to be installed directly into Program Files and not into the users AppData.

    Currently this method is not viable for a RDS environment such as Citrix or Horizon View.

  18. Introduce breakout room functionality

    We have a business requirement for breakout rooms with live events. The idea is pretty simple - we plan to use live events to host internal staff training webinars and as part of that, at times we will ask for small groups of people (typically 4-5) to go away into a breakout room and come back to the group with their answer/idea.

    We would like to see this functionality be introduced to Microsoft Teams for not only live events but also video calls. This would provide feature parity with pre-existing tools such as Zoom, WebEx and many more which would…

  19. "all monitors" desktop sharing option like Skype client

    "All monitors" desktop sharing option missing from Teams

    Desktop sharing in Teams includes sharing 1 monitor OR sharing 1 app... in Skype for business client there is also sharing "All Monitors". When used, a presenter with two monitors will present a view showing both monitors in one window. The viewer can see both of the presenters screens in the one window. They can view this on one monitor or stretch this window across two monitors to make it much bigger and easier to see.
