  1. Proofing tools (spell check, theasaurus, autocorrect)

    One of the defining features of office down the years has been the proofing tools (i.e. Spell checker, theasaurus, autocorrect, grammar checker). I would love to see these come to Teams.

    The way I envisage this working is as I'm typing a message the famous red/blue/green squigglies that we've all become familiar with should show up.

    Most of all I'd like autocorrect (i.e. a spelling correction that I've used previously automatically gets applied as I type). Stretch goal for this, have a single set of autocorrects that work across all of Office 365, including the client apps.

    Some people might…

  2. Tag Files for Searchability

    As we upload files, it would be great to have the option to add Tags for the files. That way, when utilizing search, we could enter tags to be able to find results based on the tags specified.

  5. Making the dekstop install not so buggy

    I have had to install, uninstall, and reinstall both the 32 and 64 versions of Teams on my desktop at least 4 times now. It will work for a day maybe 2 at the most and then go through a spiral of trying to login, closing the program, and trying to login again. This cycle would repeat for an entire 8 hour work day if I didn't force shut down the program. I can't in good conscience roll this out to even a test team in the company if they can't get the download to function properly

    needs your feedback  ·  swatijha responded

    Thanks for sharing information. Would you mind sharing your machine spec and names of any major software you are running on it (Office, VSO, etc.) so that we could try to recreate similar machine/environment and see if we can repro the issue?

    Appreciate your inputs!

    Hi – Thank you for the feedback, I’ve tested this and it appears to be working now. Let me know if you are still experiencing this bug.

  7. Bring attention to unanswered threads (Thread overview maybe)

    When you add a Thread to a channel and there are multiple threads that come in the same day your thread might get lost and might never get an answer.

    An overview of all threads might bring attention to those not answered

  8. Autostart

    Is it possible you can create another autostart client soon.. I have only 3 - 4 M$ Office products starting up when I power on?

    It is usually ready to work at lunch time, a couple of more M$ autostart "features" and I don't need to do anything more than start up the old can, wait it for to be done, shut down and had home.

    Thanks Guys! :)

    We are working on enabling settings where user can control if they want the app to start in background or doesn’t want app to start on machine boot at all. It should be available very soon. We will keep you posted once we have it in production.

  9. Open in Word/Excel/PowerPoint as Default

    It would be great if Teams would have the ability to always launch the desktop app when opening Office documents as opposed to launching the online version.

    Rest of teams is awesome.

  11. Link files to SharePoint Online instead of OneDrive

    The default seems to be to OneDrive rather than SharePoint Online Doc Libraries which seems backwards since SharePoint is for Collaboration and OneDrive is more private files

  14. Improve "add members" to team

    You have to add each member one by one in a team. It would be nice if it could be a grouping option to add multiple users with the same type of permissions (as if I insert a list of people with any delimiter, then check for names and click add) or import users from .csv / .xlsx file (users with roles).

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    Thank you so much for this feedback. I was actually sitting with a user yesterday who was struggling to add users to a channel because she was typing in names one by one, which is a normal inclination. I showed her that she can put any distribution list into the field (for example, all@mycompany.com) and it would invite everyone who is on that email address. Try it out and let me know if you have any more questions. I’ve also routed this feedback to design so they can implement a sign or something to show people that they can do this.

    Thank you for helping us make Teams awesome!

    Sincerely,
    Suphatra

  16. Mark message as unread so I can return to it

    Mark message as unread so I can return to it and read it later. Marking messages is good for other cases (eg. to have in hand company info/links/etc.)

    try this instead  ·  Suphatra responded

    Use the “bookmark” function instead. In the upper right side of every message in Microsoft Teams, is a little bookmark icon. If you click that, it will save that message or thread in your “Saved” tab, which you can access by clicking your face in the upper left corner of the app.

  17. Templates for Planner

    Would be good if we could have predefined templates for planner that we can then use for repetitive tasks eg onboarding a new starter.

    This is a feature we had in Asana and have lost since moving to teams

  18. Less like Chat, more like Threads

    People don't really use the reply in Chat very much. So when everyone is creating a new conversation there are a ton of UI elements all over the place making the whole window very cluttered.

    I'd suggest adding a Subject Line to the conversation so that there is a quick summary though for the thread.

    Then it would be nice to be able to click into that thread so you don't see all of the other chats.

    We actually do have a subject line.

    If you click the little pencil in your text field, the text field will expand and you can write a title for your message.

  19. Multi-company groups

    I really like Microsoft Teams, but i think it could be better working with people from any company using this app.

  20. Allow for randomized giphy selection using a shortcut.

    We're supposed to be working... so selecting the perfect Giphy is a bit of a distraction. Allowing for a randomized Giphy selection (based on keyword) by using a shortcut is something your competition offers, and is missed dearly by our team. Part of the fun was/is being surprised by what pops up.
