  1. see user calendars or availability in teams

    when you hover over a username, you see a pop up that shows several additional options (chat, email, view org, etc.), but there isn't anything that enables a user to see that person's availability. Instead, as a user, I then have to go to Outlook and add that person's name to the calendar to see when they're available. It would be very helpful to have an option to see at least free/busy info so that user availability can be assessed quickly. Then perhaps a simple click to create a meeting during that time with a Teams meeting auto included.

  2. Change Notifications - Specifics

    When you share a change you make to someones shift such as the time, notes or other, it sends them a notification that something has changed but does not outline what exactly has been changed on the shift.

  3. Allow people in the meeting to "react" to the content being presented.

    it would be a nice feature for people in a meeting who are liking what the presenter is saying to be able to add hearts or thumbs up that would be seen in the view. This would be similar to functionality in facebook and instagram live videos. While I also agree that the raise hand functionality would be nice, it would also be nice to leave immediate feedback as the presentation is going. I forsee this being used in a larger setting too to "poll" attendees.

  4. Ability to download a Team membership roster

    The ability to download all the members of a Team to review and manage. Currently we have Teams with quite a few members and would like to just cross reference with some other Teams to see if we can consolidate

  5. Custom information barriers

    Information barriers blocks all communications between 2 groups. The ability to determine what kind of communication is still allowed would be good. Fe chat and access to files is still possible but no calls and meetings.

  6. Mark Task as Both Important AND Urgent

    We should have the ability to mark a task as BOTH Urgent AND Important so we can better prioritize our day. This would be a huge benefit for anyone who uses the Urgent/Important quadrant/matrix to plan their day (the "Eisenhower Matrix").
    https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/newHTE_91.htm
    If you could do that, then you could add a view to show tasks in the quadrants of Urgent/Not Urgent/Important/Not Important

  8. Migrate existing channels to private channels

    We have migrated lots of files to teams. As there where no private channels we needed to migrate data to different teams. Now we need to convert existing channels to private (and vice versa) and combine those different teams. But it's not possible for the moment

  9. Automatic Shift Time Change

    When you go to change someones shift start time it automatically changes the end time as well. So if I change someones shift from 10:00am - 5:00pm to 10:30am it automatically changes their end time to 5:30pm.

    Please discontinue this feature, thank you.

  10. New window for calls

    When answering a call or making a call, there should be a new window created. I feel like having a new window when in a call/ video chat would be very beneficial. There have been numerous times where I enter a Team call and then I have to go back to where I was in Teams to chat with others not in the call, read remarks sent from chat, look at documents sent during the call into the chat. And much more. I feel like it would much cleaner if Calls and Video would be moved to a new window,…

  11. Have a push-to-talk check box when in a call

    I think there should be a check box or similar, that can enable push-to-talk during a call. For example, I am sick at the moment and was part of a call and would cough during the conversation. I did not want to have to mute/ unmute every time I had something to say. I wish that there was a push-to-talk option that defaulted to CTRL or ALT or something to enable me to talk and then mute me when the button is not pushed. I feel like this option should be able to be unchecked and checked per phone call,…

  12. Activity Feed including Shifts

    Shifts activities are showing up in the Activity Feed on mobile, but not on the Teams client for Windows or Mac. This should be consistent.

  13. Add the option to hyperlink file locations and to add them as a link

    Allow a clickable link to file locations to send to others. This would include network locations. Please allow them to be send as a condensed link as well.

  14. Implement a way to show multiple shifts schedules on one calendar?

    Please implement a way for a person who is currently on multiple groups to see their calendars all at once. As it stands a person can be on multiple groups and has to cycle through their calendars to be able to see if they currently have a shift elsewhere. It would be very useful for people to be able to see this information all at once.

  15. Accessibilty and other features

    I think it would be beneficial if you developed a feature that allows you to change the text size of your messages you receive. Some of these messages, when they're longer in length, can be hard to read. I don't mean simply zooming, or changing the text size of ALL text within the app. But the ability to change the font size of the messages themselves that you receive.

    Also, PLEASE develop a reminders feature. ie the ability to set a reminder for yourself at such and such time with such and such description. PLEASE.

    And can we get a…

  16. by creating a working app? IOS 13, not working since months.... Microsoft WAKE UP

  17. Present in Live Event from mobile device

    Allow presenters to join and present in the Live event from their mobile devices. Include the option to present from both cameras, front and back one.

    We are having busines updates around the openspace. Therefore, having presenters using their mobile devices to present themselves, or present the person next to them speaking would greatly increase the usability of live event.

    Not only, would the off site team been able to attend/present "in the field", but also office based staff would benefit greatly from having significant announcements done in the openspace rather than enclosed area of a meeting room.

  19. Assigning a task in Planner to multiple team members

    When assigning a task in Planner to multiple team members add a feature that requires everyone to click "complete" so it stays "Open". It often happens that one person on the assigned task completes their portion of the work and clicks their item - and - the entire task complete. If it were the case that all items in the list within a task must be checked "complete" before the main task can be checked "complete" that would be very useful.
