  2. Add user setting to NOT collapse message threads as default

    Our users spend way too much time trying to find previous posts that are hidden because they've been automatically collapsed.

    Like in Slack, it is much better if by default, no message threads are collapsed.

    In user settings, have a setting to "Collapse threads as default" - ON or OFF.

    Attached screenshot shows collapsed thread which HIDES info we often are looking for - such a waste of time and very frustrating.

  3. Add remove access from users for a channel

    Hi, When we create a team for a department, e.g. IT, we add all user within the team. but there should be able to create a channel and exclude specific users from that channel as they might not be the audience for that.

  4. onenote browse notebooks more than 20,000 item error

    Fix the bug that says "Sorry, we can't perform the request if one of the user or group's document libraries contains more than 20,000 items.
    Session Id: afdc4848-c4c3-4dcd-b6b9-73119c2a0ed4
    Correlation Id: 41a0fdb8-aeeb-4e6b-ae8b-6425bb78671e "

    How do I know which user? Or how they can fix? Please provide more info in the error.

    PS - I love that there is an option to link to existing OneNotes now. And I worked around by pasting a link for now.

  8. I want to see all my channels in alpha order every time I log in. How do I do that?

    I do not like that I have to constantly click on "other channels" and that the ones that stay up all the time are not the ones I need!
    I have tons of room on my screen so why does the list truncate?

  9. office 365 applications launching slowly

    When I open a document in word or excel in the teams application and after confirming that I'm looking at the right document click on "open in _____(word, excel, etc)" it takes forever for the app to launch and this is not particular to my computer. Everyone in my organization has been complaining about it and wondering why it isn't launching (1-2 minutes after clicking the app launches...). I can't tell any reason why it would take this long. Can you review the launch command to make sure it is programed efficiently? thanks.

  10. Retain unfinished message if I click away

    When I am in the middle of typing a message, and I click on a notification for a new message in a teams channel (for example), I should be able to return to the message I was writing. Currently, when I return the whole message I was writing is cleared. This means I have to finish writing the entire message before I can read my notification.

  13. emoji menu

    The Emoji Menu shortcut (ALT+Q according to docs) doesn't work for replies. Once you select an emoji from the menu, it sends the emoji to the "Start a new conversation" input bar instead of the Reply input bar. This happens even if you click into the reply bar first and then click ALT+Q. Since Emoji's are mostly used in replies, this behavior makes little sense.

  17. Add actual Contact List functionality for chats

    The current design/implementation for chats is terrible. Just create a way to create a contact list with the ability to sort people into "groups". Every other chat client does this. If this could be done, it would make Teams a lot more useable. If companies are expected to use Teams as a true collaboration tool, one of the biggest features are chat, which it currently sucks at (when compared to tools like Slack, HipChat, Trillian, etc.).

  18. Launch Settings?

    Can you (or I) turn off the automatic launching of the Teams app when my computer boots? I would prefer to launch it manually when needed.

  20. Custom Planner Fields

    Allow Planner customization similar to Tasks on an SP site.
    For example, we would like to have a Priority field that we can customize with our own priorities choices. another one would be a Person field "Requested By", or a hyperlink field, or customize the Progress field to add "Waiting for Someone Else".
    You get my drift...
