  3. Ability to 'ping'

    It might be good to have a functionality to 'ping' a 1-on-1 or group chat, to get attention without typing a message. The ping can be just displayed as a special type of message in the messaging pane.

    This would allow users to check for the availability of the other side without having to find a message to type.

    Of course a way of protecting against the overuse of this feature might also be required, like disabling the ping notifications or preventing people from sending pings to you in the first place by graying out the button.

  5. Control notification when Add members

    Team's administrators sometime would like to avoid the automatic built-in email welcome message sent to a new member when he/she's being added to a Team but sent a custom message in a later time explaining the new members the whole contact of the new team they've been invited to. Option to uncheck email notification (similar to what SharePoint provides is very needed to address this scenario.
    In addition, the timing of sending this email welcome message should be changed to after all members at this cycle are being added so admin can regret and remove from the list potential members…

  6. Custom Colours for each team

    We've just adopted teams after trialling a few solutions including Slack. One thing I did like on there is an ability to customise the interface for each team available. This is really useful if you have a set of corporate colours (preferably as HEX or RGB codes) for the background, text, selection etc rather than just the standard purple and white. Bonus points if you can allow custom logos too to really tie it into a Team's specific brand and make it their own.

  7. wiki link

    Fix the Link Markup for wiki. If i want to shorten a long url by using the text pattern and copy-paste the url, it is automatically transfromed to an link and destroys the markup-pattern. It's only possible to type the url on your own, which is very annoying e.g. for sharpoint file urls.

  9. Ignore adding Japanese Ruby (Furigana) Characters to selected: Katakana characters English characters

    How can I have the Phonetic Guide to:
    Ignore adding Japanese Ruby (Furigana) Characters to selected:
    Katakana characters
    English characters (it just shows the same English character)
    numbers (it just shows the same number)
    some special characters (like '-', '=', '<', '>', '/', '$', '%', '^', '&', '*', '+', '|', etc) (it just shows the same character)
    other special characters (like '@', '#', '→') (it just shows the name of the symbol spelled out)
    Apply Japanese Ruby (Furigana) Characters to a whole document (or at least, to a "Select All")?

    There seems to be some kind of limit to the…

  12. Share an event in a Channel

    It would be great to invite a channel to a meeting like in the one to one chat.

    Also to be able to share an outlook invite/ event directly to a channel so they can add it to their calendar.

  13. Teams has a behavior where it relaunches after an update. This is very disruptive as it interrupts work that I am doing. Background instead?

    Teams has a behavior where it relaunches after an update. This is very disruptive as it interrupts work that I am doing. Could this be done in the background instead?

  14. convert sharepoint link to teams file attachment

    In a conversation if I want to share a file that's in the files section I can click the paperclip and select "browse teams and channels" to reference a file in teams. That's great.

    If I'm in the files section and decide I want to share a file with someone my only option is to copy a SharePoint link and paste that link into a conversation, but that link bounces me to SharePoint in a browser.

    It would be nice to have an extra option in the files section to copy a "Teams Link" or "add this file to a…

  15. Simpler editor without formatting (WYSIWYG)

    As a developer, we share a lot of code snippets and logs information. Would be great to have a simpler text editor, with no formatting (pasting something from the web is often painful) for composing messages.

    It could use markdown for formatting, keeping it user-friendly.

    Maybe an option in the settings to use the simpler editor would fit better for all types of users.

  16. Use same chat groups and favorites as Skype for Business

    Use same chat groups and favorites as Skype for Business. It would be nice to have the contact favorites and groups that are in Skype for Business be in sync with the people in "Chat" this would allow for simpler integration and adaptability.

  18. Translate general folder

    When creating a team in a Dutch tenant the default channel is "Algemeen" (Dutch translation for "General") but the generated folder in the SP document library is called "General". Please create the folder with the right name (same as the channels name).

  19. Allow user to click button to see next image

    Give option to scroll or click to next image with clicking left right or up and down. Ex. you upload 3 images. Today you have to close each image and click to see next one but it would be easier to click to see next image. JIRA does this and is nice to have
