  2. multiple emotes

    I read something that I found I wanted to acknowledge part of it and show surprise on the other part of the statement. I tried to emote on 2 different emotes and it seems can only do one overwriting previous one. Would like to emote on multiple emotes...that and adding custom can allow for multi tiered feedback as needed

  3. Allow focusing on a video for conversation (whisper mode)

    When in a meeting, especially if I'm helping someone specifically (like a student), or trying to work with others on my team to present something to others. It would be nice if I could select a person's video and have my audio routed only to them.

    We'd still be in the same room with everyone viewing our video, but our audio channels would be connected to each other only. This would be like a teacher going over to a student to provide some specific help without taking the kid outside the class. Or, I might want to remind someone presenting…

  4. files

    When working on a document in teams (not in desktop app), it is NOT intuitive how to close the working document BUT remain in the folder. There needs to be an "X" in the top right that closes the document but remains in the folder structure of the Channel. It always throws me back to the Posts page.

  6. Communicative yes/no/agree/disagree emojis

    My teammates and I often find ourselves wanting to quickly reply to a message in a chat with a large number of participants. For example, we could be in a video/voice call with 80+ participants, and someone might type into the chat something like "Do you guys think X is a good idea?", or maybe "I think X is a good idea". In these situations, a thumbs up emoji doesn't really communicate effectively, so we are left with dozens of people typing "@John Doe Yes" or maybe "@John Doe I disagree". If there were yes/no/agree/disagree emojis, we could quickly take…

  7. Delete feature for messages and calls?????

    It would be GREAT if you could actually delete old messages and calls. I feel that TEAMS is very clunky. Seeing all of those old messages is irritating. I like seeing cleaned out call lots and inboxes. No idea why there isn't a delete feature.

  8. Improve taking notes efficiency

    I like the idea that the notes are stored with the meeting and meeting series. Right now, the note taking application is very limited. During meetings, it is very hard to take notes since only the small sidebar is available to take notes. This view does not allow efficient reediting / restructuring notes while typing. Also no pictures or snapshots can be added. In an ideal note taking application, I would like:


    • Have an efficient editor that can be either resized or can be popped out allowing to take notes while presenting content

    • Allow to copy-paste images/screenshots into notes

    • Auto…

  9. Disable the enter key for the send function

    Please give the option to disable the enter key for sending chat messages. I can' t tell you how many times my coworkers and I have accidentally hit the enter key in the midst of typing a chat message. It would be great to have the option to disable the enter key as the send button.

  12. Assignment Due Tomorrow, Remember to Turn it in!

    An email or app notification that notifies 1 day before assignment due.

    You have no idea how many times this thing has saved me in google classroom.

    I turned in an assignment on ms teams late just now becuase I forgot it was due earlier this time, so annoying.

  13. Environmental and Sustainability Performance of our meeting

    Hi,
    I have a new idea related to reflect the environmental performance while using the MS teams.
    i am working as environmental auditors and ive noticed a lot of people interested to present how much they protect the environment using your application and what is the positive impact by reducing the transportation, fuel, Electricity, ACs.
    i believe if have an option that the attendees can enter specific data and the related Carbon Foot Print are identified
    e.g. Milage and Fuel Saving per attendance
    Electricity Saving
    Chiller Saving
    ...etc.

  14. Alerts

    It would be nice if when a team member changed a file or just updated it that it would alert everyone on the team or that group that it was updated

  15. Rename a Deleted Channel

    Right now the suggested workaround for not being able to re-use a previously deleted channel name is to restore the channel, rename it, then delete it again.

    How about allowing us to rename a channel in the "Deleted" area of the "Channels" management tab within the "Manage team" area? This would save some steps.

  16. Option to block shared accounts

    When using the search bar in Teams, our O365 shared accounts often show up in the results, and often our users will try to send a message or otherwise engage with the shared account via Teams. However, shared accounts aren't fully licensed and I wouldn't think they should even be accessible in the Teams app. I've read there is the option to hide the shared account from the global address list to hide it in Teams, but that would also go and hide the account in Outlook as well, which we can't have.

    It would be nice to selectively hide/disable…

  17. Do not show "'Collaborate From Anywhere Chat in real time, meet online and share files all in one place." in Outlook

    When opening Outlook 2016 recently, users were greeted with the info bar and a link to download Teams. We don't use or install Teams with office and I'd appreciate it if MS stopped trying to force their app on my staff. I worked with 365 support to find the only way to prevent this was to turn off shared experiences, which also breaks functionality we do use. Please stop trying to force firms to use the tools you want and allow us to use what already works for us.

    Automated introduction queue.
    When we have a group it is annoying, and cumbersome to have one person try to coordinate introductions... why can't this be an automated function?

  19. Reminder for Meetings in calendar
