  1. Question

    Is there a way to upload an Excel document into a team within Microsoft Teams that auto saves as the various team members add to it/edit it?

    Hi Arielle,

    You can upload the excel as a file within the Team, which allows team members to edit and save directly to Teams or you can add a tab to the Team with the Excel file.

    Thank you,
    Brooke

  2. Add comments/discussion threads to documents.

    A lot of work centers around documents (proposal, graphic design WIP, etc.). Give us the ability to have the conversation on/under the document. Keep those comments tied to the document/file. The document serves as a hub for a project or as a major component of a lot of work interactions. Please add this feature.

    We have this! Just click the little chat box graphic on the right side of the document viewing pane (it’s right next to Edit, Close and the ellipses, on the very top right). When you click that graphic, it will slide out a right side bar, and you can start your discussion thread there. When you go back into regular channel view, you’ll see the thread nested underneath the document.

  3. Double Notification Problem

    Quite often I get notified of a new message and click on the notification to read said message. If I then minimise Teams to the taskbar I frequently get a second notification in the form of the taskbar icon flashing: when I look at Teams again, there are no new messages.

    It's as if the left-corner-of-the-screen notification dialog and the taskbar flashing come from two different timelines, both operating independently of the other and neither fully in sync.

  4. Minor Edit option when editing my messages

    When user Edit his/her message, the only option to save the edits is by clicking on the Send button (or hit Return which my understanding runs exactly same action). Many times users would like to do minor edits which they don't want them to trigger the related notifications. A Minor Edit button or and option to Save edits without resend will be very helpful to address this common need.

  5. Office 365 Groups and Team Membership

    It is possible to get into an orphaned Team state where there are no "Owners" within Teams, but adding a member to O365 group does not add that as the owner within Teams.

    This makes it possible to lock yourself out of Teams if the last owner leaves the team, it is not possible to add another member.

    We tested this on May 19th/20th. Removing a member from the O365 did not remove them from Teams, and an Owner on the O365 group could not see the team unless they were added from within Teams.

    When adding a member to…

  6. Merge/consolidate channels

    We changed the mind about the way we used some channels. We decided that some of the channels need to be merged. It would be nice to be able to do this without using history. We want history to be merged.

    This request is now being reviewed by the feature team! I’ll keep you posted as to the future decision.

  7. Allow admins to manage channel membership

    By default all team members are added to all channels. Admins should be able to add/remove team members from channels, and should also be able to disable the default behavior of having all team members automatically added to newly created channels.

  8. Show new notification on app icon.

    It would be great to have red notification circle on the app icon on the dock (OSX), just like it does on iphone when you have a missed call or new text message, with the number of new notifications for this app.

  9. Your markdown is horrible. Most things don's parse, and you can't even preview stuff.

  11. Team as distribution list

    The group I created automatically generated a contact in the company directory. If this acted as a distribution list, it would be fine. However, it has potential to duplicate existing distribution lists. Beyond that, if you accidentally email the contact, it goes into the "Groups" folder, which for our team which has only barely begun using MSTeams, basically sends it into a void. It does not appear in the inbox or as a skype notification or even in MSTeams itself!! If at least it showed up in MSTeams as a post, it would make some sense. As it is, it's…

  12. thumbs up emoji

    Please make your thumbsup emoji (yes) not the weird flesh color and stop it from moving. I use the thumbsup all the time in conversation and I'm not sure why but I hate this emoji.

    Great tool though you guys are doing great.

  13. OneNote Section Group

    I'd like the ability to create a OneNote Section Group under a Channel. When asking for a Tab Name allow user to identify it as a section group. Provide navigation to sections in Section group similar to OneNote experience.

  16. Slap your UI team.


    1. UI is oriented for tablets. It's ugly and unusable by normal people with laptops. Why would you leave so much empty space!? At least give user an option to get rid of your ridiculous padding.


    2. column with chat members - why the .... I have to click several buttons and duck my brain to find the list? make a custom option for the user to include it as part of UI. I want to see who is in chat! not waste my time searching for how to do this.


    3. sub-messages in chat? really? do you know the difference between chat…

    Hi Juanjo,

    You can add a Tab to a channel using the + sign in the upper right corner, you can choose to add a website or you can add a wiki if you are wanting to list out various links.

    Hope this is helpful!

    Thank you,
    Brooke

  18. Different notification settings per team

    There are some teams that are more important to me than others. Team members constantly mention their entire team (as they should) but I do not need to get emails for all of these. However, I do want an email for other teams. My inbox if getting flooded and I am now faced with abandoning the teams I'd like to be a part of, or shutting down notifications and being left out of the loop on my more important teams.

  20. Office 365 Planner Link

    It would be nice to be able to click on a button that takes you to the overall view for an individual for assigned tasks. As it is now designed I have added a Planner Tab to one of my projects, but I can only see tasks related to that project. This is good, but it would be even better if I could easily switch to the multi-team view of all my Planner tasks across all teams. To do this now I need to open a separate office 365 web browser and login to Planner to see all my tasks…
