  1. Add instructions for international calls

    I tried to call a phone # in Spain but Teams just said "calling..." forever but the call didn't go through. Would be nice if there's a help page on international calls. Couldn't find any info.

      • Prioritize my engagement using AI

        This is in reference to Slack, but applies to Teams.

        As a user, I love the visual notification that I have a message waiting in a channel or direct message. I'm moving at lightning pace, in large part because of Slack, but Slack is now slowing me down. I'd like to see a visual difference between direct message references in a channel and "channel" or "here" references in a channel.

        Currently, there is a roundish bubble around a waiting message. Also, an unread message highlights the channel/direct message bold. Ideally, I want a third visual queue, like a star instead…

        • information about missed call as substitute

          In our company we use the MS Teams feature to define a substitute who can make and receive calls in the name of another colleague (e.g. assistant in the name of the manager)

          For every incoming call it's shown if the calls is for someone himself or if the call was determined for another person (e.g. assistant sees if call is for the manager or for himself)

          In case the call is missed, the history in Teams only shows the number of the caller, but the information about the recipient is missing (e.g. was the call determined for the manager…

            • mention

              Is it possible to separate member and owner permissions by default? Right now I want to disable @channel and @team mentions for team members while maintaining it for Team owners but I am unable to do so.
              We are a rather large 150-people team and we need this to be able to quickly distribute important updates and ensure visibility while minimizing @team/channel mention spam that would ensue from 150 people having access to it.

                • Chats allowed to all instead of owner on a Stream video channel tab

                  Chat conversations should be "allowed to all members instead of owner only" at a Stream video, within a Stream channel tab

                  Currently it is allowed to Owners only.

                  • shifts non licensed user

                    Allow non licensed users to be added to Shifts. We would like to use the scheduling feature, but do not need Office365 licenses for these people because they do not need email.

                    • rubric

                      It would be very useful if the weights of the items in a rubric are visible to the students and the teacher after assigning the assessment.

                      Many thanks

                          When using Teams for education, we see the need for learning analytics, per student and also per team.
                          Amount of time spent, number of questions asked, participation in conversations, grades, etc.

                          • 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.

                                Customizing the order of Teams in the left nav is great, nice drag/drop. It would be great if that order is maintained across clients so it doesn't matter if I'm using the desktop client or web client, I'd get the same ordering.

                                • How can everyone have access to a channel but doesn't mean they have to be on the team

                                  We use Office 365 products and our company of 30, give or take, are accustomed to submitting requests to "groups" like Admin or Shareholders. It's an easy way for anyone to address the groups without bothering anyone else.

                                  This is problematic since we set up a team "Admin" but everyone has to be in the group to message the actualy Admin team of 2. But then, everyone is bothered with requests that are meant just for the 2 admin folks.

                                  We could just use a direct chat. yes. But it would be nice for all requests to Admin to flow…

                                      In the Activity Feed, the user name is truncated too shortly. Our usernames have prefixes, and can only see them, therefore, we cannot identify who's who. THere's the con on the leftm but it's also not enough. Please have a look at the attached screenshot.
                                      Could you increase a bit the displayed name ? like 8 or 10 chars ?
                                      Thanks and regards!
