  1. Need PHONE SYSTEM licenses from Office 365 Business licenses (not just Enterprise)!

    Currently MS Teams can only add phone functionality at the Enterprise level. O365 prevents users at the Office 365 Business Premium from accessing phone services. Changing from Business Premium to E3 is an extra $7.50/mo plus phone access at $8/mo plus the actual domestic subscription! A personal Skype Pro number only costs $6.50 per month!

    • Make new conversation UI for desktop align with mobile versions.

      Make new conversation UI for desktop align with mobile versions.

      Right now, there are a *LOT* of new conversations that get started as someone is attempting or meaning to reply to an existing conversation. The fact that the replay and start a new conversation are often next to each other, and visually very similar as text input it's easy to confuse them.

      The problem with new threads is they become disconnected from those who are actually replying to an existing thread.

      This isn't the case in mobile, specifically android, where the new conversation is a round button in the lower-right…

      • Allow Office 365 Video channel to be added as a tab on a Teams channel

        Microsoft Stream channels can be added as a tab on a Teams channel, but Office 365 Video channels cannot. Please allow O365 Video channels to be an option for a Teams channel tab.

        • Start workflows on individual messages

          Looking for the ability to start a workflow based on an individual message in any channel and in any team.
          For example, a trigger like "When I bookmark a message". This in turn would allow to do anything with the message via Flow, for example, create a To-Do item.

            • Improve upload speed, chat ux improvements, search ability and more

              Basically copy features from discord.

              Currently teams is way behind discord.

              Uploading files and screenshots is abysmally slow. Auto send them and it’s confusing the way it is right now.

              When in a call having a small button to continue chat is rediculous. Just copy discord’s exact css formula on private message calls or meetings.

              Teams has zero search ability, enough said.

              Teams has copy and paste issues when copying text from a chat and highlighting stuff it is sometimes a pain to copy paste. Discord allows copied images to paste right into the window.

              I can’t wait to convert…

                Teams does not have the ability to print a OneNote note, yet I can print other MS documents from within Teams. Currently need to open OneNote online or app to print.

                      1. when we start a new message (Thread) and we may get number of replies say 80 replies for one single message. The latest message should come first as like outlook. but here we need to scroll all the replies to see the required message.

                      2. Even though SharePoint and Microsoft teams are Microsoft Packages we don't have option to link Microsoft Teams to SharePoint. If we will get this potion this would be a great option for the teams to…

                      • AI integration with Outlook

                        Allow Outlook users to add a Teams connector. Through the connection, Outllook can make some suggestion that certain Outlook conversation should be published into certain Teams Channel. If users approve it, system can automatically beautify the content and publish it to Teams Channel for better knowledgebasing.

                          • TeamsOnly - allow users in this mode to IM (chat) with Skype for Business users in Islands mode

                            It looks like Islands users can interop with TeamsOnly (table 1c) but not TeamsOnly with Islands (table 1a), see: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/coexistence-chat-calls-presence

                            Please bring back some new-chat interop for TeamsOnly users without forcing everyone else into one of the SfB* modes. How hard would it be to give us a TeamsWithSfBChat mode to give us back some semblance of interop between Teams and SfB?

                            • Add passive outgoing webhook support

                              Currently in Teams, there is an ability to create a webhook, but this must be actively called each time (via @webhookname).

                              There should be an option to have a webhook that fires on each comment in a channel without any requirement on behalf of the user to explicitly type anything extra.

                              This will enable stronger interactions with external systems (e.g. external comment feed) that doesn't depend on user input.

                                  • We need to be able to have multiple teams on our devices.

                                    Need to be able to join multiple teams. As this platform grows there will be people who serve on several teams. Personally i serve on a public community association board that uses teams. As well so does my work account. I need the ability to easily flip between the two teams with different organizations on the same device.

                                      Serious issue: with Azure DevOps Build agent version. See attached, this is pretty serious in terms of providing a SaaS version of Team System, that is fundamentally not able to create up-to-date containers, targeted at the windows (current) platform, with default build agents. They are out-of-date, and need to be synchronized with the Windows O.S. Level (current).

                                      • Excel SmartArt in Teams

                                        Dear all,

                                        I want to use an excel file with SmartArt objects in Teams. However, if I place this excel file in Teams the SmartArt objects disappear.

                                        I can solve this by turning the SmarArt objects in shapes. But then it is no longer possible for my colleagues to adjust the content of the SmartArt objects.

                                        Best regards,

                                        JoeriM

                                        • Teams to join a skype meeting

                                          During interopeabiltiy phases, a Teams client needs to be able to join a Skype meeting without the skype client being installed on the desktop or mobile device. There should only be a single collaboration tool required.
