  2. Renaming tabs

    When renaming a tab, the related tab conversation retains the original tab name as its title, and there is no option to rename it. Tab conversations should be renamed automatically when the tab they relate to is renamed. Or at least there should be an option to change the title of the related tab conversation.

  4. links

    Can you add a "links" tab so that we can list links to websites opening in a separate browser? There are many, many websites and articles that we need to reference but that will not open with the https-iFrame Websites Tab. If you can't do this, how do you suggest we post links (aside from within a buried conversation)?

  5. Show team members in optional sidebar next to chat

    Currently to see team members you have to go to an entirely different view from the chat view.

    That makes sense for team admin, but it would also be nice to have a quick reference list on the right/left of the team chat like HipChat has.

    This is helpful for 2 reasons. First, just as a reminder of who will see your message in case you need to limit your audience, or ensure you have everyone you need while typing your message. Second is that with the list right there you can have a quick reminder of who you can…

  9. Mac OS Open App at Login

    Mac OS Open Teams at Login
    Normally in Mac OS (currently Sierra 10.12.4), applications can be added to items to open at login (System Preferences>Users & Groups>Login Items). We have noticed that Microsoft Teams does not open after login when this is configured. Has anyone else experienced this? Any solutions would be appreciated. Thanks!

  10. Allow meetings shown in Teams that come from Outlook to bring Outlook's categorization

    Teams shows all the meetings that I have scheduled via Outlook, but it does not show the color-coded categorization that I have applied in Outlook's calendar. If this could come across into Teams, it would help me keep my different project meetings organized.

  12. Add "My Tasks" function for Planner tabs in Team, similar to how Planner works.

    If I'm primarily using Teams, and I have many tasks spread across multiple channels, the only way to see all my tasks is to go to Planner. That is the only reason to go to Planner. It would be much more efficient if I could see my Teams-assigned Planner tasks directly in Teams.

  13. Ability to remove/hide conversations from the Chat sidebar

    The Chat section keeps all conversations. I tend to have individual chats with a lot of people and there may be weeks between our chats. It would be nice to have an option to remove or hide a chat with an individual user until the next time I/they send something. The same is true for chats with multiple users. I may create an adhoc chat with a couple of people to discuss a specific issue and may not ever need it again. I would like to be able to remove those from the list.

  14. Easier way to view photos

    Right now I have a folder in my Files tab with a bunch of photos. The only way to view those photos is to open the folder in sharepoint, then view each photo one by one. I can at least easily click from one to the next, however if I'm trying to find a specific photo, I just have to click through one by one until I find it. Ideally I'd like a tab in Teams that is specifically for photo viewing. Similar to a phone, or a folder on my desktop, I'd like to easily jump between viewing thumbnails,…

    This is currently in Preview – planned to release very soon.

    In the following weeks, Teams will be rolling out support on Safari 11+ on macOS. While in preview, there are known issues with Safari’s ITP mode and it is advised that users disable Safari’s Intelligent Tracking Prevention.

  16. meeting reminders

    Regardless of where a meeting is created, Outlook or Microsoft Teams, the 15 minute reminders and the like should generate a notification from Microsoft teams to the user, either a popup dialogue window or otherwise.

  17. Teams startup in system tray only

    Please create an option for Teams to startup in the system tray only. I can get more people to use it that way! I really like this app so far!

  18. Desktop App requires login to app AND connections every time

    When using the desktop app we are required to log in every time to Office 365 when the app loads AND when the Planner tab loads. We have O365 connected with SAML to our portal.

  20. Fix the bug in @mentions

    When you type an @ sign for a mention, and then need to backspace or otherwise correct a typo in the name you're typing - then the @mention function no longer works. 30 minutes later the "@" sign still won't bring up the list. If you type the name you want exactly - including both first and last name as the awkward implementation of this feature requires - still doesn't work.

    This seems like a minor issue but it happens to a least a couple of people everyday. Not being able to notify someone with a message is such a…
