    try this instead  ·  Suphatra responded

    Currently we have Teams defaulted to show you the first (up to five) channels ever created. If you want to add more channels to your left rail view, just click the ellipses next to the channel name and select “Favorite”. When you favorite the channel, it will then be “pinned” to your left rail under that team name.

    Try that and let me know if that meets your needs!

  2. Show URL previews for messages from Connectors

    When I post a URL as a user, Teams automatically expands the message to include a URL preview. When a webhook posts the same thing, the URL remains plain text.

    The webhook should be able to opt in to the same "unfurling" treatment that the user's message received.

  3. Remember two step verification like other services. Having to re-verify everytime I log back into the Teams app is horrible.

    Sorry you’ve had a hard time with the log in process, check with your IT Department as they may have control over this.
    Thank you,

  4. Save Skype4Bus Conversations

    If you leave the application open it keeps the conversations you have and with individuals. If you close the application you lose these and the flow of the conversation. Save conversations so they don't disappear (or pull them from save conversations folder int he mailbox)

  5. Create Planner item from Thread

    It would be great if there was an easy way to take a thread, and turn it into an item on a Tab, such as Planner. Where we are building a 'helpdesk' team channel with our tickets pouring there (please also see my threading of connector webhook updates request) it would be great to be able to pull the threads into planner and keep track of them there. It would also be great if planner updates would then reflect back to the channel, and where the planner items being updated were created from threads, said updates would occur back in…

  6. Fix Webhook API

    Post cards using https://dev.outlook.com/Connectors/GetStarted or https://dev.outlook.com/Connectors/Reference as reference don't give the expecting results.

    On Android:
    - "text" value isn't shown...

    On Windows 10, Android, Mac and iPhone:
    - "title" isn't format properly
    - "themeColor" isn't rendered
    - "potentialAction" aren't render like a button
    - "section" seems to work

    It could be very nice if the Webhooks is fully working and give the same result on every plateform.

  8. Rich thumbnails for files

    Can we get rich thumbnails for files the same way SharePoint document libraries now show? Pictures would show a preview and Office documents can show small thumbnails too

    Thank you for this feedback! Fortunately, this feature already exists. Just drag and drop items in the order you desire.

  12. Embed Media

    If you paste a link it should embed the media right in the chat (Gif, mp4, youtube, Vimeo, Soundcloud etc.)

  13. Links/attachments in chat

    If you attach an item to a chat it will be saved in the files section of the channel. But if you are chatting about a document and you want to reference it you do not want to save it to the channel as it is already in another folder of the SP Site. To create a copy in the channel does not make sense as you are creating duplicates. a link would be the solution.

  14. Add support for VSTS notifications in a seperate tab within a channel

    VSTS notifications can be overwhelming. It would be nice to have these notifications in a separate tab within a channel so conversations stay in the main area while notifications from VSTS live within their own tab.

  15. Enable threading of Connector updates such as Webhooks

    We've just finished building a webhook connector that will be giving us work item updates from our on-prem TFS. This is very exciting, however, every update comes in as a new thread. This is less exciting. We need the ability for, once a work item exists in a thread in the chat, for all work item updates pertaining to that work item to be threaded under that initial message. Otherwise, chaos. Perhaps the ability to arbitrarily define and ID for each webhook message, and when the same ID is re-used, it becones threaded?

  16. Make saved Outlook attachments visible to Teams

    Saving email attachments to a team Sharepoint site (Outlook 2016, Save to Onedrive, Group files) leaves them hidden from Teams. This is because the attachments are saved to the team's Sharepoint main folder, which is not associated with a channel. This is confusing to the user, who wonders why the files do not appear in Teams. The user has to know to open Sharepoint and manually relocate the attachments to the desired channel after saving them.

    One solution would be to expose channels in Outlook 2016, so the user can select the channel where the files should be saved.

  17. Allow asking questions to bot inside channel

    Imagine this conversation inside the channel:

    Me: @Bot: Can you tell us what is the current load on our live site service?
    Bot: 1245 TPS for last one hour.

    Right now this conversation works when done in private chat but doesn't work inside the channel.

    Just add mention the bot in a channel and it will start to engage with you.

  18. Include notifications based on keywords.

    We need to get notifications based on keywords. For example: I am a subject matter expert for SAP and I like to know when SAP is typed into a channel so I can offer assistance.

  19. Relax browser support check

    The current browser support check is too pessimistic and prevents some modern browsers from loading Microsoft Teams. For example, up-to-date Chrome on Ubuntu Linux is not considered a supported browser, even though changing the User-Agent string to Chrome on Windows allows Teams to load without any problems.

    Please consider a) just letting the browser try to load Teams, b) using feature detection instead of the User-Agent string, or c) blacklisting known broken browsers instead of whitelisting if the User-Agent string is used.

  20. Integrate with MacOS notifications

    Notifications built into the OS (which all apps I've seen use other than Outlook and now Teams) are more functional and allow for more user control. Most importantly, they honor Do Not Disturb settings, which is critical.

    We are getting closer, and are still working thru some bugs, but hope to release this as part of a Public Preview pack in early 2021! (Windows 10 released with the December 2020 pack this week)
