  1. Pop-out for channels to view the files in 2 different channels

    It would be really convenient to shift through chats and channels if you can bring in a pop-out feature for channels. Every time you wish to view files in 2 different channels, you got to navigate through folders.

  3. Sending images and files in Teams chat should be as easy as email, Twitter, and Facebook

    For email, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn, there are very obvious file and image attachment icons available in the message composition dialogues. The process to include images and files in Teams chats should have been just as easy and obvious. Images can be included through copy-past, but there is still no clear and easy workflow to send files.

  4. Show me which channels I'm not getting notifications for

    I missed some important notifications today because they were off by default. It would be helpful to see a little icon next to each channel in the sidebar showing whether I receive alerts (email or banner) for it. For example, the icon could be a gold notification bell or a grey one with a slash through it.

    This way, I can quickly tell if I'm not going to get notified about posts in an important channel.

  5. Set notifications for many channels at once

    I would like a way to easily set my notification preferences for more than one channel at a time. Currently, if I have 50 channels and want notifications for 20 of them, I have to dig into the sidebar and set my notification preferences for every single one. A dialog where I can view all channels and set my preferences by selecting checkboxes would solve this.

  6. Make Who answer anything and make a real person control it.

    It is so annoying when it doesn't answer anything. And I want a real person doing it.

  7. Better ability to sort and manage Teams to which I belong

    Might be a Microsoft problem, but I belong to over 60 teams, and there are probably 20+ I really need to track. Which I could default to alpha sort or rearrange more easily than the current awkward dragging. Ability to pin about 10 somewhere would make my life easier.

  9. "Can you see my screen?"

    The number one question I hear while attending meetings, is "Can you see my screen?" I've said it, you've said it. I can't remember someone not saying it. So the question we need to ask, is why don't people know if they're sharing their screen? There's no feedback. I know there's a red box around the shared window, but if that's so useful, then why do people ALWAYS (I'm not being hyperbolic) ask "Can you see my screen?" There has to be a better way. Maybe a monitor window that shows what the rest of the participants see. You're the…

    Add an option to make Banners "sticky" so they would only go away after being acknowledged or dismissed
    It'd be nice if unread updates to a channel or direct chat would result in a persistent banner that would stay on screen until I read the message or dismissed the notification.

  14. In SHIFTS we would like to be able to set the default colors in the time off area

    Though colors can be changed after the time is entered, we would like for the default option to be configurable specifically under the time off section.

  15. When you add time off in the SHIFTS App it should automatically deleted your preloaded schedule for that day

    In most cases we have preloaded everyones schedule , they then request time off, unfortunatly SHIFTS does not delete the preloaded shift for that day it instead shows 2 lines one for the shift and one for the day off.

  16. Allow users to send files without having to wait for upload

    To send a file in Teams and apps like it, a user just drags the file to the compose window and hits send or upload, etc. Teams doesn't allow you to send until the file is completely uploaded, whereas other apps like Slack let you upload and hit send immediately afterward. If I navigate
    away from the compose box while the file is still uploading and forget to come back to hit send, the file just sits there in the compose box and is never sent.

    Suggested behavior is to let me hit send while it's being uploaded, then just…

  17. Add language to invite to explain how to enter web portion

    When sending an invite to external parties, I have to add instructions letting them know to click on "Join Microsoft Teams Meeting" to enter the web portion of the meeting. If I do not and they are not familiar with Teams they only dial in.

  20. Teams Group Email - Customize Permissions

    Along with the creation of a Teams Group, an email address is generated. When permissions are granted for Send As rights, it would be nice to set that to dynamic groups such as Owners, Members, etc.

    Additionally, when making the Group Email available in Microsoft Outlook, it would be beneficial to have it show dynamically for Owners rather than all members.
