  1. Bring Back The Clippy Sticker Messaging Pack

    Please bring back the Clippy Sticker Messaging Pack for Teams. It was a really fun sticker pack that brought back the nostalgia of a favorite Microsoft mascot in a new and fun way!

  2. 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..

  4. Search bar location

    The search/command bar in the middle of the very top of the window is not a very good location. Decades of UI/UX work to train users to click there to DRAG the window and now it's a giant search box. Perhaps the ability to move it to a different place or make it expandable if you want to would be nice. Or option to hide it. But right in the middle of the top of the window is a terrible place.

  5. Support for http and not only https

    Only possible to use HTTPS urls as tabs. Would be nice if HTTP would work as well.

    As you may be aware, HTTP is inherently less secure compared to HTTPS, and modern browsers are making it increasingly difficult to access http:// links; many of them require users to bypass an intermediate page with a scary security warning.

    We take users privacy and security very seriously, and we also take popular UserVoice feature requests very seriously. We investigated many approaches to address this feature request in a way that would also pass security review. One way would have required tenant administrators to manually add domains/intranet sites to an “allow list”, – we received feedback that be unwieldy and add work for IT departments.

    Even if that were acceptable however, we’d have a situation that http:// URLs would only ever work on the desktop client. Users who clicked on the tab using the browser client would see the same scary warning that users accessing the same URL in…

  6. Display 'user is typing' indication also in Teams Channel

    While there's an indication of the user that's actively typing in the Chat area, I'd like to have this in the Teams area as well

    Feature team thanks you for the feedback but it isn’t truly actionable.

    More concrete suggestions are recommended such as, “Please create a more compact chat layout” or “Increase density of the UI text elements”

  8. Hide the reply button under every message

    The "reply" button is WAY too large under each message. I recommend either making the button just a smaller icon and off to the side of a message, or only showing it on hover.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news. This item has been declined. There will be no work to hide or remove the reply button.

    As many people have commented, a big ask is to help improve how people distinguish between giving a reply and starting a new message.
    For that the focus will be on this item. “Better visual delineation between `Reply` and `Start a new conversation`”

  9. @mention like yammer

    I would really like to be able to @mention a user who is not in a Teams Team (public or private) or a Channel but a conversation only, similar to how Yammer does it. https://support.office.com/en-us/article/External-messaging-FAQ-Yammer-35b59d6c-bb1c-4541-bf19-9f67d2f2b199 .

    I feel this would then stop the massive list of Teams being added to my left hand navigation and it would also mean I would not need access to the whole Teams team to collaborate.

  10. Rearrange all Tabs within a Channel

    I know a similar request is marked as "We have this!", but it's not possible to move all tabs.

    I can rearrange the tabs that I add, but Conversations and Files cannot be moved.

    I would like to have a channel that starts with a Planner tab, and another that starts with a Wiki tab.

    Not everyone channel will be based around conversations, so it should be possible to move the Conversation and File tab to the far right.

    Thank you for your votes and comments. The team has declined this ask. While Posts and Files are not able to be rearranged, all other tabs can be customized in any order. This maintains a consistent initial user experience across all channels.

  11. IMPROVED Markdown Support

    IMPROVE actual markdown:

    Disable auto-formatting of markdown
    italic not bold or italic
    Make it the SAME as GITHUB
    https://guides.github.com/features/mastering-markdown/
    which is closer to DaringFireball
    http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/

    IMPROVE for mobile:
    Please add markdown support for Android client.

    IMPROVE for other languages:
    Currently the code formatting doesn't work for german keyboard users due to the system expecting another character after the
    Due to that, Teams does not recognize the
    and interprets it as any other character.
    I think that needs to change.

    We’re fixing bugs identified in the comments, and other user reports we’ve received around markdown, but we’ve decided we’re not going to fundamentally change our markdown support.

    This is the first time we’ve declined a request, and it didn’t come easily. We weighed this against other important features we’re working on to deliver and we had to make some tough choices.

    Really appreciate your understanding on this, and please feel free to ping me if you have any questions, complaints, or need to rant.

  12. Nested Teams and subchannels

    Could it be possible to create teams within teams. For example, we have a Development Team at our company which consists of two sub-teams, tech support team and project team.

    I’d love to be able to have a “home” top-level channel for my project team, and then have sub-channels for each project that we are working on.

  14. Make it possible to remove and/or rename the default tabs (files & notes)

    It would be really great if we would be able to remove / rename the default tabs. A lot of times files / notes are too generic names for the tabs, so renaming would be really helpful then. :-)

  15. Sort conversations so the latest posts are at the top rather than bottom

    Messages currently come in with latest content at the bottom of the page. Would be good to be able to re-sort so the conversations with the most recent traffic are at the top. Also, move the "Start a new conversation" to the top so that its clear you're adding a new conversation and not responding to a prior thread (we have a lot of newbies who don't use the "reply" because the compose bar is on the bottom, and thus end up creating a bunch of new threads accidentally).

    Conversations in Groups starts at the top and forces old ones…

    Hi everyone, thanks so much for this request.

    We have thought this through and decided to prioritize other user-requested items, so this one has been declined. But please don’t stop telling us what you want, because we’re still working to get many of those done. We’re listening and appreciate your support and patience.

  17. More @mention possibilities

    Idea spliting off from this one https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16940059-add-generic-mentions-in-each-channel?tracking_code=1c7742f3e32355a2d76e469ddf0af53e

    It would be nice to have more options for @mention as suggested in the above issue with @here for giving notification to everyone present (available status).

    There are many other possibilities as well for example the opposite, something like @notHere (so they will not miss the message when the get back) or @onnline /@offline. You could also have @admin / @ owner and later @guests for external users.

    Not sure if it's possible already or not but you could allow tagging a different team/channel so everyone that are in both gets a notification.

  20. Drag chat messages to merge them into one reply thread

    Since a lot of people type messages in quick succession, it'd be helpful to have the ability to drag and merge them together into individual "reply threads".
