  1. Allow ANYBODY to share their screen

    Currently we have to use other services such as Google Hangout/Meet or other video conferencing apps to meet with people outside of our company, because MS Teams does not allow screen sharing for anonymous guests. Its a real pain ********** that Teams doesn't have this ability and most other services do. We meet with people outside of our company a lot so we frequently need to abandon MS Teams for these meetings.

      At this point, screen sharing is enabled in our desktop client, but not web client. (in general, not just anonymous/guests). Adding browser support is in progress.

      Please comment if you are using the desktop app and are still unable to do so.

      I will keep you posted once available. Thanks.

    • Teams Presence should be 'real-time'.

      Having presence delays of up to 4 minutes makes presence largely useless. Having to resort back to typing 'are you free now' after calls, because I can't tell if they are still in the meeting, or have started another meeting or call. Or trying to call somebody and get rejected and a message saying "I'm in a call"

      • Integrate Presence in Outlook contacts from Teams

        Whenever Team is running the presence should show on the Outlook contacts. When composing emails and adding users, it should show the presence of Team. It currently works only for skype for business.

        • Support for Private Channels

          Looking for the ability to create a channel that only channel members can see. Private channels are available in slack. There is an admin for private channels who is the creator, and they are the ones who add/remove users.

          Five types of public/privacy that is being asked for by users:

          - Public-Open (visible anywhere including outside the org and anyone can join)
          - Public-Invitation (visible anywhere including outside the org, must be invited)
          - Company-Open (only visible inside the org and anyone in the org can join; outside the org must be invited)
          - Company-Invitation (only visible inside the org,…

              The team is still working on this fix, as part of a larger design change. Given internal feedback, it has been decided the current design isn’t ready for primetime.

              In the meantime, someone discovered that triple clicking will actually select all of the text. I know we want the real fix, but thought I’d share.

              Thanks for your patience.

            • Guest access should be implemented at the Channel level

              Once I enabled guest access on the tenant I can enable guest access to a team, but I can't give guest access to a single channel. There should be a way to do this as I will now need to create a guest team and an internal team when I share teams with customers.

              • I want to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time

                LOG INTO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
                Original user posted:
                I would like to heave this multi-team/tenant option within “MS Teams”, like in Slack. Currently I’m in four different organization. They’re using all office365, three of them now changed from Slack to Teams. I’ve to permanently login/logout to switch to the related MS Team. This is really time consuming.

                Another user says:
                We need the ability to sign in with multiple accounts. Many of us have several O365 accounts for various reasons (consulting, etc), and we’d need to be able to access teams directly.
                This is not a federation or B2B scenario, but…

                • Teams needs a REAL Calendar!

                  Would love to have a Calendar to allow those in the same team to view each other's availability and whereabouts. Would make it a lot easier to create appointments/meetings.

                  The calendar could be a tab in a channel (so then you could have multiple calendars in one team) or could be an icon on the left app bar, instead of "Meetings" which is helpful to no one.

                  Could also be helpful to add a way for us to add a SharePoint Team calendar.

                    Sorry for the delay on an update on this one! I’m hunting down the status for you and will update once I have it.

                    Also, if you are interested in participating in testing or surveys for this, just tweet me at @skprufo.

                  • Block change picture

                    In Skype for Business we were able to prevent users from uploading pictures for their avatar. This was done from a PowerShell script that modified the OWA policy. We should have the same option with Teams. Hopefully in UI instead of PS.

                    • Reporting Capabilities

                      We are after reporting capabilities to capture granular detail on activity within Teams.

                      We would like to have data capturing:
                      1. Number of users enabled
                      2. Number of daily active unique users
                      3. Breakdown of devices uniquely used
                      4. Number of teams created
                      5. Number of teams deleted
                      6. How many instant messages sent overall in the Chat
                      7. How many calls made in Teams
                      8. Number of files shared in channels
                      9. How many combined ‘likes’ have been made over a period of time

                      • Allow copying whole chat conversations

                        Currently, it's not possible to select & copy more than one message in a chat. When I try to select two or more messages, the focus stays on the first message making it impossible to copy whole chat.

                        There are some really ugly workarounds like: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Copying-conversations/td-p/62849 which I don't consider a solution of the situation.

                        I want to be able to select multiple messages at once and copy them by hitting CTRL+C.

                          It would be good to be able to click on a calendar button on the left hand side to get a view of the Office 365 groups calendar as you would in the calendar app. Good for being able to look and get a glimpse of what is coming up with the group. At the moment I have to go back to the calendar to look at it.

                            I'd love to keep groups/channels in my list, but mute a channel so I don't get those. I get notified whenever some tags a channel eg @General, it's super distracting!

                            Also would like the possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received for a user that chooses to mute some group chat.

                                  Users reporting multiple copy/paste issues for text:

                                  1. Can't paste multi-messages. Often, only the first line pastes, the rest disappear. As one user puts it: "On the Windows 10 desktop client it is nearly impossible to copy multiple messages from the chat history. A fraction of a second after letting go of the mouse, the highlight collapses down to a single message."

                                  2. Can't paste in general: "Copy & Paste is tempermental, when i try to paste text in from other sources it simply doesn't paste, but then if I only copy a few (3-6) words then it does. It…

                                      Quotes from various users about memory usage and slow performance:

                                      "Team is a memory hog! 100s MB! Slack is about 50."

                                      "The memory consumption is over 300MB!!! This should be a priority."

                                      "Just started evaluating teams, 500+ MB and 10-15% CPU. This is in a citrix VDI. Does teams use hardware rendering? If so is there a way to turn it off? I had to do this with the rest of Office."

                                        The feature is still being worked upon. Many different changes are going into Teams and will provide a slow but steady pace to our performance increases.

                                        I don’t have any new details at the moment but hope to get some additional feedback in the next several weeks.

                                        • Integrate tasks in planner with Outlook Tasks & Calendar

                                          Every time you create a task in planner via Microsoft Teams and assign it to someone in your organisation/team it would be nice to see that task in outlook as well. I want to know and to be alerted that I have a task assigned to me without having to lon on to Microsoft Teams.
                                          It would be great to have a place to see how many tasks have been created in a team/channel and the status of each one.
