  1. Allow to use @team and @channel on multi-byte (Japanese language) environment.

    Allow to use @team and @channel on multi-byte (Japanese language) teams environment.

    They don't work anymore and we have to use @チーム and @チャネル. The flow to put them in is "@" > "switch input mode to multi-byte" > "ti-mu" > "convert into Katakana" > "Enter".

    They are inconvenient and @team and @channel are simple and better to us.

    Thank you for your feedback. We are pleased to announce that Microsoft Teams now support @team and @channel in both localized language and English. The feature change is currently being rolled out, and it is expected to be completed by the end of March.

    大変お待たせいたしました。お客様のリクエストにお応えして、日本語と英語の両方で team (チーム)と@channel (@チャネル)をサポートできるようになりました。この変更は現在段階的ににリリースされており、3月末にはすべてのお客様に届く予定です。

  2. 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.

    Muting of conversation threads is available to the public. Just like muting a chat, turning off notifications to a channel conversation will stop you from receiving updates for that specific conversation.

    To turn off notifications for specific conversations

    • Go to the beginning of a conversation in a channel
    • Go to the top right corner of the original message in the conversation thread and select More options … > Turn off notifications.

  6. "Reply all with IM" from an Outlook meeting is broken

    In an Outlook meeting, when I use the "Reply All with IM" option, with Teams set as my IM application, it opens a conversation with the owner of the meeting only.

  7. Voicemail for Teams Calling & Call Queues

    We have some Auto Attendant and Call Queues set up, when the time is 'out of hours' and a call comes in or if all users are busy and unable to answer a call it should go to voicemail posting the message transcript and audio file in the Team / group linked to the call queue.

  8. Busy Options (Busy on Busy or Voicemail on Busy)

    Provide a functionalitiy similar to the one is SfB Server.

    There are two items tracked here:
    1) Busy on Busy - Incoming calls will be rejected with a busy signal if the user is busy.
    2) Voicemail on Busy - Incoming calls will be forwarded to voice mail if the user is busy.

  9. Import Shifts schedule from Excel/CSV

    Shifts already has export schedule in UI. It would be great to have a option to import schedule as well, so it could be prepared in a external (legacy) system and then easily imported using UI, without need to develop code for upcoming Graph API.
    This would also make possible to create a shift "template" that could be easily uploaded to new Shifts / groups.

  10. Add "What's happening today?" Status

    Skype for Business has a "What's happening today?" custom status under their name which users can write custom messages such as "Teleworking" or "At Lunch". Teams should have this also.

  12. Guest Presenter in Team Live Event Meeting

    It does not appear that Guest users can be a presenter in a Live Event meeting. This is a key functionality as not all presenters will be employees.

  13. Allow service numbers from a SIP trunk via Teams Direct Routing

    Could you please add support for service numbers (usable with auto attendant or call queues) that come from a SIP trunk connected via Direct Routing? It doesn't make sense to support BYOT with Teams Direct Routing but not having the possibility to use the numbers on the SIP trunk as service numbers for an auto attendant or a call queue.

  15. Ring on all Devices - Incoming Call

    When a Call comes in, it only rings in the headphones. But as we don't wear our headphones all day long, sometimes we can't hear it ringing.

    Please make an option to ring on all attached devices (speaker + headphones).

  16. Mute

    Ability to control who has access to muting all other meeting participants.

    In other meeting platforms (Webex, GoTo Meeting), only the meeting host or delegates hosts have the ability to mute everyone else in the meeting. In Teams, everyone can mute all other participants and this is a concern for companies switching over from those platforms.

    Can we create an option where only the meeting host has the ability to mute all other participants?

    The option to allow only the meeting organizer to mute attendees is enabled via presenter & attendee roles:

    Presenters can do just about anything that needs doing in a meeting. Attendees have limitations on the actions they can initiate within the meeting, including the following:
    - Present
    - Mute All
    - Remove/Add Users
    - Admit Users from Lobby
    - Start/Stop Recording

    For more info, please see the documentation below:

    Thanks!

  17. Meeting Policy - presenter permissions

    In Skype, you were able to set your meeting options for any particular meeting. You don't have this option in Teams and everyone from your organization is made a presenter by default, so anyone can mute or remove anyone including the meeting organizer from the meeting. At the very least, we should be able to set an option in the Meeting Policies to not allow entire organization to be presenters, but it would be better if the meeting organizer could decide who if anyone, can have those permissions.

  18. screenshare without audio

    In Skype for Business it's possible to share your screen without using the audio feature. This is important for us, because we use a different conf bridge. Using Skype/Teams audio in that scenario just gets in the way (echo, unwanted audio through PC, etc).

    Bottom line, it would be nice to be able to share your screen in Teams without using the voice/audio feature.

    I have confirmed with the feature team that this is, in fact, functioning as you expect today – you can share your entire desktop or a specific window directly from a private chat session, without starting audio or video. The mute microphone button is enabled so you are able to easily add audio by “unmuting”, but we realize this is causing confusion. We are working on further experience improvements.

    Please feel free to respond to teamsml@microsoft.com if you are still seeing issues.

    Thanks,
    Alex

  20. 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…

    Thanks for all of your ideas and feedback! We’re excited to announce that Tags in Teams are now available. Tags let you quickly reach a group of people all at once. With tags, you can categorize people based on attributes, such as role, project, skill, training, or location. For example, a “Nurse” or “Manager” or Designer" tag will enable you to reach groups of people in Teams without having to type every single name.
    Once a tag is added, just @mention it in a channel. Everyone who has been assigned that tag will receive a notification just as they would if they were @mentioned individually.
    For more information: https://support.office.com/article/using-tags-in-teams-667bd56f-32b8-4118-9a0b-56807c96d91e
