  1. In the german translation, please use 'du' instead of 'sie'

    Please don't use the way too formal 'Sie', but instead 'Du'. This totally disturbs the user experience

  2. Keyboard shortcuts to type Umlaute and other international characters

    In other O365 apps I can use keyboard shortcuts to type international characters on an English keyboard, for example, ç = ctrl+, and c, or ä = ctrl+: and a. See https://support.office.com/en-us/article/keyboard-shortcuts-for-international-characters-108fa0c1-fb8e-4aae-9db1-d60407d13c35. This is missing in Teams.

  3. BToE

    We need BToE support with our Polycom deskphones. Without it, we will have to always run Skype for Business side by side to sign in our users to the phones.

  4. Improve Install options - Install for all users and install location

    Raising this again as Microsoft closed the previous request, saying it was complete even though it was not. (link below)

    Teams should install to the program files directory, not the users AppData.

    And NO, the answer is not to put a copy of the MSI in Pogram Files and deploy to the users AppData when they login.

  5. Open links to teams in Desktop App

    SITUATION: When you receive a link to a Teams file or folder, or really anything in Teams, like a Planner task - it sends you to the sharepoint site, regardless of whether you have the Desktop App installed and even if it is open.

    RESOLUTION: Make links to any Teams elements open directly in the Teams Desktop App

    This will save so much time and frustration from people, and also make Teams seem like a more integrated solution for everyone.

  7. Barge, Whisper, Listen In

    I found a similar request for Skype here (https://www.skypefeedback.com/forums/299913-generally-available/suggestions/8900035-monitoring-features-silent-monitor-whisper-bar). I haven't been able to find documentation on implementation of the following so wanted to throw it out there just in case.

    1) Whisper - Managers or supervisors can tell agents what to say (advice or answers) without customer hearing them.

    2) Barge In - Managers or other users can jump on a call without permission from the original user to help with a call (especially useful in call center situations).

    3) Listen - Managers or other users can listen in on a call, given they have the access…

  8. Integrate Delve Profiles in Teams

    Make Delve Profiles (own Profile and that of others) available in Teams and include profile content in Teams-Search.

    Delve Profiles are good fo showing skills and projects of our employees.

    But the Profiles and there information are not accessible in Teams which breaks our usecase.

  9. Microsoft Teams download banner / popup needs to be removed

    When a user in the Office 365 environment wants to use the web version http://teams.microsoft.com, a popup message is visible at the upper area with a prompt to install the client version:
    “Want an even faster, more collaborative experience? Download the desktop app.” By several given security compliance requirements in big IT environments, the users shouldn’t be able to install any additional software at their PCs. This popup is confusing the web-only Teams user and also it makes the software deployment team nervous.

  10. Need prompt before updating on MAC

    Every time there is an update for the desktop client (at least on Mac) the client updates automatically without prompting the user, which always seems to invalidate the session. There should be an option to prompt the user before the client is updated. (similar to how VS Code does it, perhaps)

  11. Allow for explicit Connector configuration (not possible in MS Teams because of O365 Groups drawbacks in this area

    Allow for explicit Connector configuration (not possible in MS Teams because of O365 Groups drawbacks in this area)

    Currently if you don't set Connetors in O365 Groups via powershell command to disabled you would have it fully open in O365 Groups.

    The MS Teams app suffers from this drawback because you cannot allow Connectors. On the MS Teams admin console it looks like one could control Connectors, but if you get the deeper dependency to O365 Groups and that the Setting there is "oversteering" MS Teams, you see all granularity is not helping you with Connectors.

    On Enterprise Level this…

  13. Private conversation inside a Public conversation

    Looking to use Teams as an internal Crowdsourcing initiative.

    Is there any possibility to switch from a Public conversation (meaning that the conversation under the channel is visible to all the members of that particular group) to a Private conversation (meaning that only 2 people will be able to see it and it will be hidden for the other members)?

    This should apply no matter if the users are internal or guest/external.

    Thanks,
    Stefano

  14. Please support symbols like % in filenames

    We have many files which have symbols like % in them. Currently we cant send / upload them with teams. It's not a solution to always change the filename

  16. Assigning a non-member to a task in planner adds them to the Team

    If you assign a person a task in planner who isn't a member of the team, they automatically get added to the team. There is a message which says non-member but I don't think this is clear enough.

    There should be another warning/pop up telling the user that if they assign a task to someone not on the team they will get added to the team. This is a security concern!

  17. Share live location

    I really like the location feature in 2016 Business Skype. It know when I move between my two facilities at work and it also remembers my home location. This should be a feature in Microsoft Teams.

  19. Increase Teams Planner Checklist character limit

    Character limit is 100 for Teams Planner Checklist items. I propose that be increased to at least 255, if not more.
