  2. up/down arrows to choose emoji

    If I type
    :+
    then a list of "thumbs up" emoji appear however I can't figure out a way of choosing one without using the mouse. As a keyboard shortcut nut I really don't this.
    Please allow us to navigate that list using arrow keys and choosing one using enter.

  3. Allow thumbprint view of images in files section

    Allow view changes just like in Windows for files. For instance, detail, small thumbnails, medium thumbnails, large thumbnails, etc.

  4. EML file reader for reading emailed conversations to a channel

    Related to the recent "Forward an email to a channel".
    The full email is attached as an EML file. But it needs to be downloaded to read.
    Please build an EML file reader into the application and browser experience. It will be valuable to read the full email without downloading.

  6. Ability to disable some tab app tiles

    With all the new tab app tiles that have been made accessible such as Zendesk, Asana, Smartsheet and etc, can we get the option to disable some app tiles? From an administration standpoint, we should have some control over what apps a user can add. It should be similar to how connectors are added, we can decide to select which 3rd party app to use in a channel. Basically, i need to a way to prevent users from adding in 3rd party apps, signing up for accounts and bypassing internal tools (security issue). Great job with MS Teams so far,…

  8. File column sort order

    Make column sort order "sticky" so that if I prefer to sort my files by Name instead of Last Accessed, Team will remember my preference within a Team

  9. Group Policy Template

    When are the Group Policy Templates going to be available for Microsoft Teams? I want to unify desktop app settings at my company (like disabling Skype Integration) but haven't seen a way to currently achieve that.

  10. Streamline process of sending a new message

    Currently Skype has the ability to do a search for a contact or group using a keyboard shortcut. Typically the person/group I want to message is at the top so all I need to do is hit "Enter" and I just start typing away. I love how simple and fast this is in Skype.

    However, currently in Teams if I use the keyboard shortcut for "New Message", I cannot write a message into a channel. But if I use the keyboard shortcut for "Search", I can find the channel, group, or person but I cannot just hit "Enter" to start…

  11. Don't use Comic Sans on the stickers.. Especially the Design ones.

    It's basically a way to guarantee it won't get used by designers.

  13. Prevent users from Adding Team

    Need a way to prevent any user from creating new teams (and therefore a 365 Group).

    I set GroupCreation to $false for the default policy but users in the default policy are still able to create teams. Please advise when I can expect this to be resolved.

  14. Add a "Teams" icon into Outlook address book

    When a new Team is created, a new email address is automaticaly created on Exchange.
    Unfortunately there is no icon to identify this new Team into the Outlook user address book. (The "icon" filed is simply left blank.)

    It would be nice to add a "Teams" icon into Outlook.

  15. Maximized desktop app displays a thin white bar up the screen to the left.

    Teams Desktop app on Windows 10
    3 monitors are setup -- Left, center (main), and right.
    All monitors are the same resolution (1920x1080) with no scaling.

    With Teams maximized on the center/main screen, there is a vertical white bar on the left screen. On the left screen, it is in the top right corner going down. It is 5px width and 745px height.

  16. Onedrive for Business integration for mobile apps.

    Don't know why this isn't available by now. Would it be possible to have OneDrive for Business integrated with mobile apps?

    needs your feedback  ·  Warren responded

    Would someone be able to provide feedback in the comments as to what is the expectation of this integration? What functionality is being asked for?

    Any details to better understand the request is appreciated.

  17. Which chat belongs to which Teams on mobile apps?

    It's not easy to remember which chat belongs to which Teams after a while on mobile apps. When you have multiple ongoing chats, it would be nice if you can see which Team they started from.

    The option to “discard” suggested contacts in your chat list is rolling out to users. We will be making further changes to make suggested contacts more relevant for new users in the future as well, so marking as partially completed. Thanks for your patience with this one.

  19. Show when your video is being displayed

    When there is a video conference with more than 4 people, it seems to show the 4 most recent speakers on the screen. It would be very useful to know if your own video image is being displayed to others. Your own image is displayed at the bottom right, if it could be made to have a thick red border when your video is active it would be great.
