  1. Thread subject and focusing on a thread

    When viewing a channel, it would be nice to be able to select a thread (within the channel) to focus/expand on. Sometimes the threads can get long, and distinguishing between one thread and another can be difficult. If you could select a thread and have it expand the thread so that it is the sole focus of the window, that would be nice. See Zulip for an example of how this is done well. The fact that each thread has a subject/title is very nice, as well. It is a clear/logic separation of conversations within a channel.

  2. Categorize Saved Messages

    I would like to have the ability to categorize saved messages. I have a list of messages with key decisions I would like to reference at a later date and it would be helpful to be able to find these saved messages within a folder.

  4. Have a read to badge for all teammates that have read a conversation. As well as show which user is typing.

    Being able to see if a user is typing or has seen a certain conversation in a channel would be really handy. When team members don't respond I'd like to know if they at least saw the conversation to that point to know if I need to reach out to them again or not.

  5. Close desktop alert after clicking on the "X" button

    Currently, when I click on the "X" button of my desktop app's alert, the Microsoft Team's app opens instead of closing the alert.

    Reallyyyy annoying!

  6. My Tasks view

    in Planner (tasks.microsoft.com) there is a "My Tasks" button that shows everything assigned and its current progress status.

    Can this be built in to teams?

    As i am working on multiple projects it would be good to see what needs doing without having to look through 20 tabs

  7. Hability to setup the default site collection on SharePoint

    It should be possible to setup where the Teams Sites are being created!
    For the moment its using the default site collection and this is something that in my opinion should be possible to define the site colleciton to use.
    or has an workaround to be able to disable the default "Files" option to avoid the creation of a subsite in a collection that is not intended to be used.

  8. Creating an email from the user info card uses primary email address instead of UPN

    It looks like creating an email by clicking on the envelope icon of the user info card in the Teams client uses the user's UPN as the To: attribute of the email.
    In our organisation UPN != email address. This functionality should use the user's primary email address to target the email, not the UPN.

  9. Teams inbox to receive emails and messages

    So if there was an inbox for the team that would consist of emails or messages to team name. Under the inbox you would have all the channels listed and folders with team member names. That way all external communication to the team would come into the team inbox. Then team members could drag the conversation to a channel or their own member channel folder. This makes the conversation categorized and recorded in the proper channel. So in addition to creating an outlook group for the team a Skype group name needs to be created so all communication to teams…

  10. Change feed order

    Change feed order so the recent posts appear at top (similar to facebook). Or at least give the chance to change this behaviour.

  11. Bug? Uploading team logo does not always work

    I experienced this error several times now. I created a new team and tried to upload a team picture. No matter which size or file type (png, jpg), I always get the message "Problem uploading your picture. Please try again later."
    Then I created another team and the picture upload worked without any problem. After waiting approx. 5 minutes, uploading worked on the first team.

    Why is that? Do we just have to wait some time before we add a team picture? Then some notification would ne nice when creating a new team.

    Great work by the way! :-)

  12. When a tab has been edited (excel or any file), indicate that the channel is updated

    For any tab, for example an excel file, if the file is modified at any time, indicate that the channel has an update available. This could include a visual in the channel listing, as well as bolding the tab label

  13. Improve the Mac App


    • Can't find it in Mac App Store

    • Weird first run experience (very un-Maclike)

    • Didn't know which monitor it was on (had windows on both)

    • Ignored system level text replacements when trying to log in (I have a shortcut for my fairly long email address)

    • Non-standard UI, and not in a good "I hope this takes off" way

    • Non-standard emojis automatically used when you type keyboard ones (e.g. ;) is turned into a horrible animated winking face that looks like it is leering at me... but it also lets you insert system native ones alongside them for added confusion)

    • A garish…

  15. Allow adding or editing Teams SharePoint site Content Types

    Would absolutely love the ability to add templates and forms into content types in the document library created by teams in the team SharePoint site. So that when someone goes to add a new document they have the ability to choose from templates and the content types I put into SharePoint. Also some more of the standard site features of a standard SP site would be lovely (I.E. workflows and the like)

  16. Schedule a meeting that does not include yourself

    Make it possible to schedule a meeting involving members of your team but not include yourself. This would allow, say, and admin member of a team to arrange a meeting for other members of the team without the meeting appearing on their own calendar.

  17. Video conferencing on web client

    I'm trying to get people here to migrate slowing from Skype for Business to Teams. Unfortunately the install able app tends to crash often, so more people are using the web client which is more stable, faster, and cross platform.

    Unfortunately it seems a lot of the functionality we need isn't there, like video conferencing. It seems Microsoft keeps trying to push apps instead of web apps and that seems to be a mistake. I'm sure it's easier to implement, but being able to work completely off the Office 365 website without any installed apps is a much preferable method…

  20. Channel Connector Errors

    I have a team and I get an error when I try to get to the connectors tab:

    :-(
    Something went wrong.
    We can't find that group. It may have been deleted. Please verify whether the group exists.:The requested group 'invalidGroup' is invalid.

    There's no more information than that. No way to fix that I can find. (Heck, no way to actually know what the **** the error IS for that matter.) All I get is a request Id and a server.

    RequestId: 0c040c00-916a-4e21-89fc-4e9c877e7247
    Server: DM2PR0501MB1533

    Mind actually giving us something to work with or search for to find an…
