  1. Allow to group favorite contacts by category

    In skype it is possible to group contacts in groups/categories which is useful in order to have customs categories for contacts. Contacts of a group/category does not necessarily belong to the same team, and you may want to contact them individually so creating a team does not suit this need.

  2. 1. Order

    Referring to the Desktop App version.
    Messages, conversations and changes are displayed with the original 'post' placed on top - descending in progressive historical posts. There is no option for sorting or filtering.
    Consider changing this with the latest input on top. Increases performance and efficiency - avoiding to have to go through a long list of elements that the user is already aware of or can refer to - if and when the situation requires - not each and every time.
    Thanks

    Thank you all very much for the great response. The survey is now closed. The feature team will be reviewing all the data that was gathered and responded based on the findings.
    Again, thank you for helping us make Microsoft Teams the best it can be.

  4. Add Iteration/Sprint from VSTS

    Currently the extension tab only allows showing Kanban board for Epic/Feature/Stories. It would be very helpful to allow tab to show iteration/sprint!

  5. Can u allow channels within a Team to have different membership?

    Can u have different folks invited to channels within a Team so that they don't have visibility to all channels in a Team? As an example I have a Product Dev team and inside that 2 channels, and one of the channels needs external folks added to it but the other channel needs internal only. The external folks shouldn't be able to see any other channel in that team except the ones they were invited to. It seems like when I create a Team and invite folks everyone gets access to all the channels below it

  6. More Visual Distinctions between private chats and teams chats

    It'd be nice to be able to better identify when you are chatting with one person directly vs. your entire team

  7. Allow hyperlinking to network drive locations

    While you are currently able to hyperlink to any https:// address, hyperlinks to \-mapped drives does not work. having the ability to do this would be a huge help for a company that has a sophisticated network drive setup for everyone to access

  8. disable site customization

    Provide the ability to disable users from customizing the Teams sharepoint site. Also consider the site template being more plain. RIght now it has webparts instructing users how to customize it. In past experiences, users will just end up deleting the Teams library or breaking the page leading to support problems.

  9. Azure RMS/AIP Integration

    Allow integration with Azure RMS/AIP via Teams. Ideally, users could enable this per Team (as they see fit) and it would encrypt and protect the files, chats, etc. inside of that Team (which would enable the IRM feature in SharePoint, OneDrive, etc. behind the scenes and enforce RMS upon download of the files).

  10. VSTS Build Status Color/Icon Indicator

    When displaying VSTS build notifications in the feed it would be nice if the "Build Succeeded/Failed" text would be color coded or had a status icon to go with it, making it easer to see the status at a glance.

  11. Post OneNote page reference in Conversations

    Add the possibility to post a reference to a OneNote Channel page under Conversations. When the reference is clicked in Conversions, the desired page is opened under the OneNote tab.

    AS-IS you can use "Copy Link to this page...", but when clicked the page is not opened in Teams. Opens in OneNote Online.

  13. Cannot Link to Existing Channel File

    On the mac app I created a file in a channel successfully. When I am on the Conversation screen and attempt to add that file to my conversation by linking it from the existing team channel, I get an error saying "upload failed". Happens every time in any channel.

  14. Make "Follow this channel" the default setting.

    Usual Microsoft lack of UI intuition.
    Channels should be followed by default with the user unfollowing it if they wish.

  15. It would be great to see Freshdesk added as one of the 3rd party apps

    It would be great to see Freshdesk added as one of the 3rd party apps since our team uses this and currently we just have to settle with adding it as a website.

  17. copy a picture that is already posted in a chat

    If someone posted a picture/screenshot in the chat the only way I can copy that picture is to download it and then re post it. In Slack I was just able to right click on the picture copy and then pasted on another chat. In teams when I right click on the picture nothing happens. Is this feature possible in Teams?

    Thank you

  18. Mass add users to a channel or team

    Please add mass add users to a channel or team.
    Like we use on other Office 365 services. email@domain;email@domain and (if possible) @everyone something like that.
    I'm using and loving Microsoft Teams :-)
    Thanks a lot.

  19. Enable forwarding of messages to text/SMS

    For people who don't want the mobile app, but still would like mobile notifications, is there any way to set up Teams to forward messages to SMS by changing a status or another factor?

  20. Describe most common use cases, and best practices

    I see that some people are already deep into MS Teams. However before we jump into MS Teams, we want to see some use cases and how to use Sharepoint, MS Office user groups, Skype for Business, and MS Teams in those use cases.
    For instance a use case could be as follows:
    The food processing plant wants to add 3 mixers. The plant manager needs to talk first with the CFO about its cost break even analysis and ROI, with purchasing about possible vendors and mixer costs, with plant people about installation, training and usage, and with the warehouse…
