  2. Alphabetical sort option for Teams

    Please consider including an option for viewing the teams in alphabetical order. Ideally, there should be a "Default" view which sorts all the teams in ascending order (A-Z) and an option to sort the teams based on most recent activity. Of course, this feature should also be pushed to the mobile app as well.

  3. "Stay logged in" to Box.

    Allow Box to stay logged in when entering credentials. Continuously logging is tedious.

  4. On iPad app, if you use the Files tab to view an image, it opens an integrated image viewer. Once that opens, there is no way to get out.

    If you're going to use a view function, there needs to be a way to return to the Files tab.
    Only way out is to close Teams and restart the app.

  7. Adding files to wiki articles

    Typically there are not only text instructions associated with a wiki-entry but also a related document. I would like to be able to link to documents right inside the article.

    Right now the only way is to attach/link a file to a conversation about an entry. It is easy to miss this file as a user. Having to use a hyperlink as Name of the document is rather inconvenient and inconsistent with the user experience

  8. Add new team member "Roles"

    It would be great if there could be additional "Roles" set within channels and the ability to tag those roles in a message. (For example: Manager, Supervisor, etc) So, if I wanted to message all managers I could simply type @Manager to flag them in my message.

  9. Print all conversations in a channel

    We need a way to save or print or archive channels to access later but move it out of the working field of view. Moving it to "More" isn't acceptable because the team is still relevant.

  10. Copy link to task does not work in the desktop app.

    The link I copy within the Teams desktop app does not work to link back to that Task later. If I copy the link from the Task in the web app, it will open that Task in the web app, but still fails in the desktop app.

  11. Bug: Scheduled Meeting preview card not updated when meeting is edited

    Conversation thread shows incorrect time on edited meeting card.

    To reproduce:
    1) "Schedule a meeting" in the Teams conversation tab
    2) Click "...", then "View meeting details"
    3) Change the time, date, title, etc. for the meeting
    4) Click "Update"

    *Changes appear to be saved when viewing meeting details, but the meeting preview card in the conversation view still displays the original meeting data.

  12. Notifications on taskbar like Wunderlist

    Notification functionality to mirror outlook or Wunderlist. With outlook, new messages popup in the notification bar in Win 10 and a closed envelope appears in the open application in the taskbar. With Wunderlist the number of tasks due today is in a circle on the taskbar even when the app is closed. In a work environment we need to have better notification capacity. Outlook is a perfect example of how it can be done right, and Wunderlist improves on the taskbar notifications. It further helps to have options under notifications to control how taskbar notifications work so that people can…

  13. Add multi-members in same line

    When adding member in a Teams, the field should permit to add many people at the same time (separated by semicolon). This way would allow to copy list of people from Outlook for example.

  14. Respect open -g to launch in background on macOS

    The macOS native client ignores the -g parameter in open -g and always launches the app into the foreground, stealing focus. That is, open -g /Applications/Microsoft\ Teams.app should open Teams in the background, and doesn't.

  15. Search for files broken: "Problems loading the results"

    We've been having the issue in Teams that everyone except global administrators get this error message when searching for files.

    It stands to reason that this is a problem with permissions on these files- yet, I didn't change anything in the permission within the groups.

    Question: Do you know a solution? Is there anyone I can talk to this about- and possibly help to fix the issue?

  16. Customer Support and Bug Reporting

    I cannot submit bugs as I use teams. The easier it is to report bugs, the easier it will be for you to squash them. When I click "Help" I get the bot which didn't help me with my issue, there's no customer support option anywhere as far as I can see. When I click feedback I come here, but this doesn't seem like the write place to post bugs or ask for help.

  18. gifs should autoplay

    gifs lose their impact if someone needs to actively hit the play button. the point of gifs is that they play automatically to be visible immediately. if it doesn't play there is no point in using it.

  19. Problems syncing with Desktop version - The default General channel does not sync after adding additional channels to the Team.

    Problems syncing with Desktop version - The default General channel does not sync after adding additional channels to the Team.

    After adding new channels to a Team, the General channel says "We can't access your content. Please refresh to try again."

    Refresh does nothing.

    The Channel does show up on the web.

  20. Application Opens With Top Half Off Screen

    I have Auto Start Application selected. When starting the computer (with multiple monitors), the application opens halfway off the screen. The title bar is completely out of view.

    I currently use WindowsKey + UpArrow to restore it to the screen bounds.
