  1. Please remove the automatic minimize feature on the Mac version

    Please remove the automatic minimize feature on the Mac version. Very annoying. Happens when the app hasn't been accessed in a certain amount of time but we still need it to remain open.

  2. It would be nice if you allow users to select and copy part of the text message instead of copying the complete message. Thanks.

  3. Formatting OneNote Notebooks

    It looks like a notebook formatted in OneNote Desktop can't be formatted the same way as one created in "online" neither of which can be formatted the same way as a notebook in teams. This is just plain unacceptable and darn near useless. OneNote notebooks should be the same anywhere they appear. What the . . .???

  4. Teams Overview

    Why don't you start with a flow diagram or road map of what the product is comprised and what each component in the system is connected and what it accomplishes. Seems I have to draw my own overview diagrams to understand the new app based applications.

  5. Rename Teams tab doesn't propagate to Planner

    Very much like renaming a Team doesn't rename the SharePoint site, renaming a Planner tab in Teams doesn't rename the Plan in Planner. Please fix. This is a mess.

  6. Tag Teammates in Planner Cards & Push Notifications

    It would be really helpful to add more ways to notify teammates on through planner:
    -Tag teammates in Planner Card comments
    -Push notifications for mobile when mentioned in such tags.

  7. Regarding the WIKI - copy and paste for the section bodies

    Copy and paste needs to be added to the WIKI so we can take existing content we use today and paste it in the WIKI.

  8. Add our own policy links

    We would like to be able to post our own links to our legal and privacy policies and not have it go to the Microsoft ones.

    Also, would be great if there would be a feature to force new users to check off that they have read the policy (like in Yammer).

  9. Please make a way to save subfolder/document favorites on the side panel!

    We often use the same subfolders over and over again, and it would save time to not have to navigate through a folder several times a day if it were saved as a favorite on the side panel.

  10. More than one conversation allowed per channel

    We would love to see the ability to have more than one conversation tab per channel. This would stop channel sprawl when you don't want to discuss 2 similar like topics per conversation tab. Such as release 17.1 and 17.2 testing. The likelihood of confusion is to high so separation is needed, but not really a whole channel.

  11. Search on Partial Names

    I'd like to be able to search on partial names. For instance, if I'm looking for "Robert Smith", when I type in "Rob" I may get 20 people proposed. I want to be able to type in "Rob S" and get Roberts with a last name starting with S. However, the search currently does an exact match. So "Robert" != "Rob" and "Robert Smith" falls out of the results.

    Given names in Teams:
    "Robert Adams", "Rob Dean", "Robert Nice", "Robert Smith"

    As is:
    "Rob" matches "Robert Adams", "Rob Dean", "Robert Nice", "Robert Smith"
    "Rob S" matches no results

    Would like: …

  12. Get rid of Wiki and replace with Onenote as default tab

    Wiki is confusing to users. It looks like OneNote but does very little to facilitate note taking, like OneNote does. It is so hard to deal with o365 in general because there are so many overlapping options. Adding Wiki to it add unnecessary complexity.

  13. Visual distinction between private and public teams

    Maybe add a "lock" icon to the corner of a private team "logo" (i.e. the initials in the colored block)?

  15. notifications only when the app is in the background.

    on the MacOS app, its super noisy when you are reading a thread and getting notifications about it at the same time. Should be able to mute the toasts when the app is in the foreground

  16. Acknowledge Assigned Tasks

    Once a task is assined to someone, it would be useful to have an acknowledge process where he accepts the tasks.

    Tasks not accepted should be shown somewhere so that a manager can oversee if projects are moving or not and if team members are actually checking what was assigned to them.
