  1. Sorting feature from Planner is missing in Team application

    Hi, I have installed Teams on my computer. I have added a sheet to get a link to planner (to an existing plan). Unfortunately, when I use Planner inside Teams window, I am not able to sort the tasks by people or status, as I can do in the Planner on-line application. It seems that this sorting feature was forgotten...
    Thanks

  3. Teams function with Sharepoint On-prem

    Make it possible to link Teams with an existing SharePoint onprem.
    Because not every Userdata and DB values could be legally uploaded(in Cloud) in some countrys. Data security is sometimes much more Importen for each files/entrys. (and companys)

  4. When conversation starts on a file, if the file is set as a TAB there is a separate TAB conversation for the same file. Should be linked.

    I uploaded a file (xlsx) to teams then started a conversation about this file. However when I then pin the file to by settings the file as a TAB for the team a separate conversation about that tab is created thereby having 2 separate conversation about the same file. They should be either merged or be able to view both conversation histories from the tab. I guess as another issue if the tab was removed I would want all the conversation that happened in the tab to still be saved as a conversation about that file.

  7. Use Slack-Style Channel Joins Instead of Favorites/Follows

    The channel architecture in Microsoft Teams is unintuitive and confusing.

    Follow vs Favorite a Channel: What is the difference? Which one will alert me to new messages? Which one will alert me to channel mentions? How do I know who will receive notifications when I mention a channel?

    We have many project-related channels and it's difficult to notify project members.

    Slack's channels are intuitive and notifications are transparent. Joining a channel in Slack is committing to involvement in that channel. Naturally, members will receive channel mention notifications by default, as expected.

    In Teams, users can participate in a channel but…

  8. a shortcut to channels like #channelname in the chat

    We are a Slack shop moving to MS Teams (good job MS)! However there are some simple (Relative I'm sure) design elements that I would like to see when it comes to shortcuts while in the chat. We have several times where a conversation is already happening in another channel (one could say bad channel design) or within a private 1 on 1 chat. However if the information should be available to everyone I like to post and change within a channel say something about a project, like a project status update. Then someone hits me up on that same…

  9. Unable to create a team with existing Office 365 groups

    We have disabled the functionality for the end user to create O365 group on their own using below article
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Control-who-can-create-Office-365-Groups-4c46c8cb-17d0-44b5-9776-005fced8e618

    After that as a member of the Security group (as described in the above article), per end user request we have created a new O365 group and added that end user as a Owner of the new O365 group.

    Now EndUser can use Planner, SharePoint with the new O365 group but When the EndUser wants to create a team, he/she cannot able to use the existing O365 group (or new O365 group just created).

    I create a SR with Microsoft…

  10. Sort notes by time

    Right now notes in the notes tab are sorted earliest to latest so the user needs to scroll to the bottom to see the latest note which is annoying when there are a lot of notes.

    There should be a way to sort notes by time (ascending & descending).

  11. When switching between teams it would be nice to continue at the same place and not at the general page

    When switching between multiple teams it would be nice to pick up right at the same section you most recently left instead of having to navigate back to the specific location when moving to a different team section.

  12. Please remove the useless dialog

    Please stop showing the dialog box claiming you can keep on using Teams when you open a file in a local application.
    Since Teams is not closed, I know I can still use it.

    I don't need to be reminded and as a bonus have to click OK, which is just a complete waist of time.

  14. Link to a Google Team Drive

    The current ability to add folder from Google Drive works very well, with one exception: folder that are part of a Team Drive within Google Drive cannot be added (they simply don't show up in the list of folders to pick).

    Being able to add a folder from a Team Drive would be very valuable to us as we start to use this feature more in Google Drive.

  16. New messages don't appear after clicking "New Messages"

    I scrolled up in a conversation to read old messages. Some new messages came in. I scrolled back to the bottom and didn't see the new messages. I saw a "New Messages" button and clicked it and the new messages did not appear. I had to click the "Activity" button to see them. Please fix the "New Messages" button.

  18. vote for ideas without receiving email updates

    Not a complaint about Teams itself, but this feedback site. I'm happy to vote up existing ideas (and register to the site as I have done), but not a fan of being automatically subscribed to email notifications about it afterwards forevermore. Let us just vote please with no email subscription.

  19. OneNote in Team Channels

    I really like the channel feature in teams and that I can create an associated OneNote page. However, I can only add pages to the Team OneNote rather than Section Groups. Can the facility to add section Group be looked at?
