    • Blocking Time slots in Meetings without an Invitee.

      I can't block time slots out on my calendar from Meetings. I can't create a Meeting without a participant.

      • Add ability to convert Teams message into a VSTS story

        It would be useful if it would be possible to create new VSTS user story or feature from a given Teams message, preferably along with comments.

        • Ability to remove old conversions. Ability to sort by user set groups. Ability to set a custom status.

          Mac user.

          There is no ability to remove old conversations.
          There is no ability to sort by user groups (such as favorites).
          There is no ability to set a custom busy or away status (this is a major deal for the Outlook business ecosystem).
          The app is massive, so instead of a small contact list window, you have to have a big kludgy panel open across your screen at all times.

          • make it possible for me to add team members

            I am trying to add a guest team member and am told I am not authorised to do so. I am the owner and so far the only member of the team, so it is difficult to see who is authorised if I am not. This makes this piece of software completely and utterly useless. Not much point in teamworking with myself.

            • Email Notifications

              The email notifications are sent an hour after someone messages me while offline, and are useless aside from 'someone mentioned you'. It would be much more useful and helpful if the emails contained the text of what the person said, similar to the HipChat email notifications. A lot of the time it's easier to reply directly to the person from the email than it is to wait 10 minutes for your app to load.

              • Don't Remove Group Chats from Feed!

                I was looking through my recent feed, looking for a group chat from 2 months ago and could not find it. I couldn't even find it by searching for text in the conversation. I realize that I can surface it by creating a new chat with the same people involved. However, this creates unneeded work on the user's part. If we can keep these chat's in our feed or at least have the option to archive them, that would be helpful.

                • I need a way to let my team members know I am out on vacation some kind of auto responder to put in a message?

                  I am on vacation for a week it would be great to set a master out of office notification for all members to see in any channel the time for being out etc.

                  • Unable to schedule a meeting!

                    Upon updating to v1.0.00.28451, I no long have the ability to schedule a meeting! The UI for scheduling a meeting has disappeared throughout the entire app. See attachments for examples.

                    • Make it easier to Minimize or resize the favorites column

                      The Favorites Column (I believe it is called) is way wider than I need and finding the expand option on the tab I was working was not intuitive at all. The ability to resize the width of that column would be very helpful.

                      • Ability to check call quality ahead of calls/meetings

                        Skype for Business has a way to check your call quality so you can hear how you sound. Teams really needs this as well. I've had a few calls where I can hear the audience clearly, however they say my audio quality is poor.

                        I'd like the ability check and see how I sound before I join a Teams meeting or make a call.

                          • Upcoming/started meeting reminder with Join button in channel

                            Currently in order to join meeting that does not have any participants yet, user has to go to Meetings tab and click Join. This creates meeting message in channel with convenient 'Join' button others can use to join the meeting directly from the channel. It would be nice if Teams would post automatic messages about upcoming/started meetings in the channel with the Join button, so everyone can join directly from the channel.

                            • Override default TAB behaviour when editing a file

                              When editing a file, such as an Excel document, the natural behaviour of pressing TAB to advance a cell is instead captured by the parent application, Teams.

                              As a user this is somewhat unexpected and not useful.

                              Most people working in the office suite in teams, will expect the TAB key behaviour to be the same.

                              Small point, big impact for those that wish to use this app regularly :)

                                  On the desktop app the status indicator changes to inactive, even if it is open and just minimized, until I maximize Teams app and click in it.

                                      As a Teams user...
                                      ...i'd like to promote the UserVoice ideas i support via LinkedIN (in addition of Twitter and Facebook)...
                                      ...so that i would be able to raise up my chances of seeing my ideas win! :p

                                      • Share files, conversations & tabs with a public link

                                        As a private team member, i'd like to be able to generate a public link from :
                                        - Files
                                        - Conversations
                                        - Tabs (ie. Note and Wiki at least)

                                        ...so that i could share that item (and nothing else!) with anybody that get the link.

                                        (it's a Slack-like feature)

                                          Team chats - collapse the discussion after the opening entry. Make for easier flow and search for specific discussions.
