  1. Tag, notify users during private group discussions

    during group chat, w/10 + team members for example. the need to tag someone is becoming more and more of a requirement to keep the "flow' active & efficient.

        • "Yikes looks like someone pulled the plug" is it really required to restart

          If the network connection drops, is it possible to simply reconnect without going through the painful process of restarting. If it is occasional its OK, but when working on a poor connection, such as commuting into work it is VERY painful. I have experienced this mainly on Desktop version.

          • Attach a team files to the chat one-on-one discussion

            Chat messages to allow you to attach files that are part of your Team files. At the moment it only allows to access your OneDrive personal files. That doesn't help if you need to discuss a particular file one on one instead of the whole team.

                • Enable the "Tab" key in the Word edit mode

                  When editing a Word document in a Word tab, pressing the "TAB (tabulator)" key on the keybard select another item in Teams instead of doing a normal tabulation in the document.

                  • Stop Converting Text to Emoticons

                    If I type D:, as in the D-drive of a computer, it converts it to an emoji. If I hit the backspace it completely deletes it, but doesn't undo the emoji conversion. I'd like a way to be able to disable the conversion of text-to-emoji (and not have it display incorrectly for a recipient) or have the option to backspace when a piece of text is converted to emoji and have it revert back to what it was.

                    Thanks!

                    • Fix the word wrap in "conversations" when not editing.

                      I just saw Microsoft Teams "Conversations" break the word "to" into "t" and "o" on a separate line below when not editing. In edit mode it looks fine.

                        • Clearer incoming call UI

                          For Android. Currently when there is an incoming call:

                          * the purple angled phone icon is for ACCEPT
                          * the red horizontal phone icon is for REJECT

                          I find this design confusing. On multiple occasions, I have accidentally rejected the call because (I'm trying to think what I was thinking when I clicked the red button):

                          1. The ACCEPT button doesn't have an attention grabbing colour that indicates positive action; the purple ACCEPT button doesn't stand out because purple is the overall colour of Teams UI
                          2. The REJECT button in red stands out, and in absence of another "call…

                              We still have instances where messages from team members does not get delivered to the chats and channels. After a restart of Teams then the messages are purged and then the rest of the team sees it. Everyone did upgrade to the latest version (Nov 2017).

                                • Allow Webhooks Extensions to @mention individuals and channels

                                  The JSON payload used for formatting MS Teams notifications via a Webhooks Extension should allow @mentions to be constructed.

                                  Similar to how a bot can construct a mention in it's response via <at>@General</at>.

                                  Without this functionality, there's no way for members of a channel to be notified by the Webhooks Extension without having to first follow the channel.

                                  In most real world scenarios, following a channel will not suffice — leading to spam and distractions for the team.

                                  For many, the absence of this capability is preventing the transition from Slack to Teams.

                                  Use Case 1:

                                    As data usage continues to grow with more communication it may make this program difficult to use on a phone without the ability to relocate a portion to SD memory. Cannot understand why Software developers do not use the extreme capacities of external memory available for cellular phones. Is the reason why many programs are not utilized

                                    • During a call or a group meeting, I often will get echo that starts and stops during the call.

                                      I often will experience very loud echo (My own voice back with a delay). It doesn't happen all the time but when it does, it's very loud and makes the call quality go down to 0 out of 10.

                                        • Delete assignment in teams and delete page in onenote

                                          I create an assignment in a Class Notebook using the Class Notebook Add-in. This pushes the page to students' notebooks and creates an assignment in Teams. If I delete the assignment in Teams it would be great if I could also delete the distributed page in OneNote.
