  2. Quoting previous Messages

    A collegue of mine discovered this in markdown formatting (if you include a ">" before a paragraph it formats it as a quote, then 2xShift+Return to exit quote). This is a useful feature when trying to give context to a response that occurs later in a conversation thread.

    Quoting should be a more integrated feature. I'm picturing a "quote" button below the message window that when you select it, it opens another window where you can select a message you want to quote. The tool should automatically date/time stamp the quote, format it the same as the markdown method, and…

  3. Save & share documents with Onedrive in Teams! Sharepoint must be merge it!

    I think we must make Teams more user friendly, the sharepoint must be closed because we don’t need it! We have Onedrive to save documents and we can share it with Teams ! i understand not why you bringing many the same functions! You must Merge same functionalty to make it smaller and userfrindly! Then you must make, that we can share channls with different users. Because expamle: if we have a Marketing Division (Team), i don’t want that all users or certain users can see certain documents.

  5. How many members of the team are available online

    I want to see which of my team members in the channel are available online at the time, and the list of the people who are following the channel. This is important because we have a global team working across different timezones. That way, I can communicate with the member, let's say, who is working in US, without looking at the Skype whether he/she is online at the time. This kind of feature shows up in Slack (pic attached).
    Thanks.

  7. Ability to sort Teams in ascending or descending order

    As the list of Teams grow in number, it will be very useful if there is a button that will allow a user to list Teams in ascending or descending order. This is useful when you do not know the exact name of Teams that was added.

  8. Change which Tab is default landing page for a Team and/or Channel

    Right now the conversation tab is the default landing page for a Team and/or Channel.
    I want to be able to have a SharePoint site landing page in a tab and that tab be the default tab open when you navigate to a team or channel.

    Think of it like a landing page for that team. You may not want it to drop right into Conversations. If you can have a SharePoint page with a Microsoft Teams conversations web part, you get the best of both worlds.
    I can see a lot of scenarios where you'd want the chat window…

  9. Can incoming emails sent into a channel generate notifications the same way conversations do?

    If I'm following a channel I'd like to be able to receive notifications on ALL activity in that channel. The biggest thing that's missing is the ability to get banner notifications and a number in the Teams icon (like when someone posts a new conversation) for incoming emails to the channel.

    We want to have a group of people monitor automated alerts coming into a channel and respond to them but without notifications we have to keep bringing the Teams window up and manually checking it.

  10. Easy navigation back to other Microsoft Apps

    Once I'm in the Microsoft Teams experience, I haven't been able to find an easy and simple ways to open up the other Microsoft Apps other than through documents (like navigating to OneDrive or SharePoint). Could there be a simple symbol or button that would open up a sidebar with all of the other Microsoft Apps so I can quickly move between them and teams?

  13. Better integrate meetings with rooms and OneNote

  14. Create a Microsoft Team based on a Office 365 Group created in Yammer

    Office 365 Groups is supposed to be a single definition for a Group across all Office 365 services. However, Microsoft Teams cannot be based on Office 365 Groups created in Yammer. Please fix this so that Yammer Groups and Microsoft Teams are more tightly integrated. Fragmentation of Office 365 Groups will result otherwise.

  15. Have different users for different channels

    Allow different people in a group to be assigned to different channels. E.g. A,B,C,D are all in Team X and all in the General channel, but A,B are in Y Channel, A,C,D are in Z Channel, etc.

  16. Joining a Team

    CHANGE PROMPT:
    Change "Add team" to "Add or join a team": I avoided this button because I thought it would always create a new team. It wasn’t evident to me that I could browse for existing teams there too.

    PREVIEW A TEAM:
    Provide the ability to preview a Team without immediately joining, to see what the reason for the Team is and what Channels exist. It’s a little cumbersome to have to join, realize the Team isn’t what you thought it was, and leave.

  18. Place Saved Conversations Top Left Navigation

    "Saved" conversations should appear under "Activity" or somewhere else in the left bar navigation as shown in the screenshot below.

    Currently "Saved" appears in the sub menu of my profile

  20. Set theme preference for each team

    Another idea from Slack, but one I miss more and more. In Slack, you can set a personal preference on what theme to use for each team you are signed into. I guess this would require more themes other than the light/dark/high contrast, but having this ability makes it a lot easier to determine what team's channel I am currently viewing without having to read anything.
