  1. Implementation a feature that enables administrators to set All new posts in Channel notification settings at channel-level or team-level

    I would like you to implement a feature that administrators could set All new posts in Channel notification settings for all users at once in channel-level or team-level.
    Currently, this setting needs to be performed by per user and it is a time-consuming procedure.

  2. This is probably already a feature, but I can't find it. I want to save a group chat logs as a transcript and as a seperate file.

    I want a button that allows me to save a group chat as a separate readable text/doc file. If this is already a feature, it is not obvious.

  4. About posting to channels

    I want to set detailed restrictions on the function to post mail to the channel.

    It is also good to be able to set up users who share channel email addresses.

  5. Thumbs-up emoji looks like it's being shoved somewhere, please fix

    That animated thumb really needs to stop moving. I think of kancho every time I see it, but that's probably just because the thumb movement reminds me of a very inappropriate colloquialism in US English that I won't repeat here.

    Suffice to say, the emoji is horrible as currently displayed. If you were to stop animating it it would probably be just fine.

    Honestly if you'd just stop animating ALL the emoji that would be greatly appreciated by literally 100% of people using Teams.

  7. Make Who answer anything and make a real person control it.

    It is so annoying when it doesn't answer anything. And I want a real person doing it.

    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.

  9. In SHIFTS we would like to be able to set the default colors in the time off area

    Though colors can be changed after the time is entered, we would like for the default option to be configurable specifically under the time off section.

  10. When you add time off in the SHIFTS App it should automatically deleted your preloaded schedule for that day

    In most cases we have preloaded everyones schedule , they then request time off, unfortunatly SHIFTS does not delete the preloaded shift for that day it instead shows 2 lines one for the shift and one for the day off.

  11. Allow users to send files without having to wait for upload

    To send a file in Teams and apps like it, a user just drags the file to the compose window and hits send or upload, etc. Teams doesn't allow you to send until the file is completely uploaded, whereas other apps like Slack let you upload and hit send immediately afterward. If I navigate
    away from the compose box while the file is still uploading and forget to come back to hit send, the file just sits there in the compose box and is never sent.

    Suggested behavior is to let me hit send while it's being uploaded, then just…

  12. It would be helpful to be able to cross search between Teams, Outlook and other MS apps.

    When searching in Teams for a conversation, we should be able to see Outlook results as well as some conversations end up on both platforms depending on who you are talking with. Can this feature be added please?

  15. Emergency Location must be accurate and not user-defined.

    According to the Teams Docs, "For example, when they use Teams to call emergency services (such as 911 in the United States), users need to be aware that Teams might not be able to determine the actual location of the caller." - Is this even legal? How will this pass FCC muster? Did anyone consider the ethical and legal implications of not implementing accurate location determination?

  18. Please develop a new Framework for Teams

    Microsoft,

    Do you realize that Teams has the ability to revolutionize the 21st century cloud computing? Do you understand with the proper development of Teams, you could take significant market share from Amazon and Google.

    1 If Teams is a communication tool than make it one. The Human being communicates in various different ways. Put all those communication methods in 1 application that is intuitive, fluid, dynamic, flexible, and self learning. Email, Chat,SMS, Text, Voice, Fax, any other communication method you can think of. Put it in a Single app and make it extremely intuitive.

    2 Eliminate the following :

  19. Screen sharing without webex

    I cannot get teams to work with my webex. Ideally I should not need a third party product like Webex. Teams should be able to let me share a screen with the person I am chatting just at the click of a button

  20. REMOVE ORGANISATIONS - INTEGRATE GUEST ACCOUNTS!!!!!!!!!

    REMOVE ORGANISATIONS - INTEGRATE GUEST ACCOUNTS!!!!!!!!!
    Having to have 7 in private browsing tabs open in order to be online in all your organisations at the same time is not a a valid solution to externally connected co-workers.

    There are many different suggested solutions to this major issue; it's undefendable that none of them have been implemented.
