  1. Being able to open teams in multiple windows.

    If I'm working on a file in teams, and then want to send a message, I don't want to have to get out of my file, go to chat and then go back to my file. I should be able to have multiple windows open (and spread them across my screen), dedicating one to chat's and the other to working on my relevant files.

    • 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.

      • Quick Hide and Hide All Conversations

        Currently in Teams it takes two mouse clicks to close a chat conversation. In Skype there is a "X" to close the conversation. This results in a single mouse click to close out a conversation window.
        This makes it easy to rapidly close out any open conversatations you are finished with. It would be nice to have this same function in Teams.
        The X could go either to the left of the CHAT name or next to the "...".

        Also it is very easy for your "RECENT CHAT" tab to get filled up with several conversations and takes a long…

        • Call Contact's Work or Cell phone

          When I click the call button on a contact, Teams automatically begins a teams/skype call to the user. It should offer options to call the user's phone numbers (work/cell/other) or to make a skype/teams call, similar to the drop down menu offered by skype for business.

          • Teams in SysTray does not distinguish between Activity & Presence

            Whether you are in a meeting or got a message, in both cases you get a RED DOT. This is not clear or very helpful.

            • Display the description of the team and channels

              Every team and channel has a description that can be entered, yet there doesn't seem to be any way to see that description unless you can edit. How about making the description visible under the title in the right window? Maybe even a setting that allows me to make descriptions visible or not (on/off switch).

              • Customize Applications within Sidebar (Drag-and-Drop)

                I'd like the ability to have full control over how the sidebar is organized. Currently, you have to click the 3 ellipses to view any connected apps as well as access them. Maybe have the list scrollable or drag-and-drop the applications into any order and snap into place. Maybe integrate the ability to unlock and lock the sidebar view so you don't accidentally reorganize the app list unintentionally.

                • MS Teams Meeting Delegation

                  For a meeting scheduled using Teams, it would be great to be able to delegate the organizer role so that someone else can reschedule the meeting during my absence. For instance for Executive Assistants or PTO.

                    We need BToE support with our Polycom deskphones. Without it, we will have to always run Skype for Business side by side to sign in our users to the phones.

                        • Shifts Swap portions of your shift.

                          Ability to have someone cover your shift entirely or just a portion. Example I need to take off 2 hours early but I only need to offer up those 2 hours to someone else. I will work the rest of the 8 hour shift.

                              I guess I'm lodging this feedback on behalf of my 4yr old daugher.

                              In the interest of gender equality, how hard would it be to toggle the person in the graphic when changing team sites (see attached file). My daughter asked why it only shows a bearded man and not a "girl" or "princess". I didn't have a good answer for her.

                              So I guess ultimately she's asking to see different people/genders toggled in the image when changing team sites. Though to see a princess would be cool....

                                We are already allowed to comment on files, but it would be great if we could be taken to a specific frame when we comment on video files.
                                This function exists in solutions like frame.io, wipster and vimeo video review.

                                We're migrating everything to teams and planner so this one function would great for us.

                                • Team Planner - Add List View

                                  Would like a table view of the items in Planner as a view option. Section would be the bucket, the deliverable, assigned to, status, etc. When there is a larger project all the tiles can be difficult to see the overall at a glance.

                                  Not sure if this should be in TEams or Planner - or maybe both. I am using Planner primarily with Teams, which is why I am putting it here.

                                    • Linux client

                                      My team has some users on Linux, and one benefit Slack has is a Linux client. Without a Linux client on Microsoft Teams, some orgs may have to turn away in favor of Slack so everyone can participate without keeping a browser open all the time.

                                        on the backlog  ·  Suphatra responded

                                        Hey guys, thanks for the feedback – we hear you loud and clear. After talking this over with the Engineering team, I confirmed this will remain on the backlog and we are actively considering how to accelerate.

                                        Tweet me if you have any questions! @skprufo

                                        Please add the possibility that users are able to post a conversation or a reply to people or distribution groups, that are OUTSIDE of the team. In other words, it's an outgoing chat that is delivered by Email. This can be done by using the @-letter followed by a full Email-Address.
                                        People outside the team that get this Email could reply via Email as well because the sender address is the Team-Channel-Email-address.
                                        This feature will enhance Interoperability with Messaging heavily.
                                        Additionally the post could be flagged with a fitting "outgoing-"banner or text something else, to show Teams user, that this…

                                        • When recording a meeting, record the screen that is being shared.

                                          We just recorded a meeting for our team. No one used their cameras, but we were all watching someone's screen being shared to follow along with the code example. The recorded meeting only shows the icons of folks on the team, it does not show the screen we were all watching.
