      • CTRL + Z Erases entire message

        When typing a new message, pressing CTRL + Z erases the entire text you have written and replaces it with the contents of the previous message.

        Pressing CTRL+SHIFT+Z or CTRL+Y does not restore the message.
        The text is lost.

        • Add button to Remove Formatting in chat

          When I type message and insert text from other files or websites - Teams auto applies formatting, which is usually unnecessary, or looks ugly.

          There should be an option to remove all formatting from inserted text (the same one as in Gmail e.g.)

          • Outlook view of Teams should be consistent with the Teams view

            The Outlook view of Teams is a confusing mess, and makes sure that users put stuff in the wrong place and wonder where it went - that's for both conversations and files!

            The view of Teams in Outlook should be consistent with the view from Teams.

            It currently displays a Group 'files' tab that places files in the root of the 'Documents' library where they are then unable to be seen from any of the channels in the Teams view.

            Put simply Teams should have their own view in Outlook, not the Groups view which is not compatible and causes…

            • follow notifications

              When following a channel the notifications (icon in taskbar) for new threads is not working reliably. Please have a look at this as this makes the "follow channel" feature unuseable.

              • Website Tab app needs to be able to display SharePoint and Calendar content in a frame

                Currently the limitations of the Website Tab app mean it's next to useless for presenting content from SharePoint (e.g. with Views or Filters applied via the URL) and for example the Team's group calendar. The Website tab just returns a message '

                • show it user status is on mobile

                  It would be great to see a status/presence of when a user is signed in only on their mobile. It helps other users to realize if the person they are contacting may have a delay in responding because they may not see the details on their mobile (perhaps they are driving).

                  • multiple domains in the app

                    I work for multiple organizations. Each has Teams. My installed app can only work with one organization. I can use the web app for the second organization but it is difficult to remember to keep it open and the alerts are not as good. Can you make the app support multiple organizations?

                      • Members who can't add/edit Channels are still able to change the Channel's folder name which breaks the Files tab

                        As we know, if someone renames the folder, it breaks the Files tab in the Channel.

                        ... But you would think that if a Team Member's Team permissions do not allow them to add/edit/delete channels, they couldn't edit the Channel's folder name. But they can.

                        And then the Channel is broken - the Files tab has a message "These files are no longer available Check to see if site is available and try again"

                        • Wiki edit button placement

                          The edit button for a wiki is in exactly the spot where the delete button appears after a user clicks the edit button. Not a good idea.

                          • Drag and Drop Folder

                            Drag and Drop Folder: currently (2017-04-10) when dragging and dropping a folder from my harddrive to a team Files location the files are copied, but the folder is not. Have to first create the folder on Teams, then copy the files into the folder. Would prefer to drag and drop the fold and Teams will automatically create the folder and copy the files within it to that folder.

                              It would be great from management point of view if we could see a list of all teams or their related sites from sharepoint at one location.
                              That way we'll know what all teams are there and it would be easy to navigate.

                                When sending a file I have to wait for it to be uploaded before I can send it. Why don't send it but keep it uploading? It´s a waste of time. I don't won't to wait. It's frustrating.

                                  When in meetings or other concentrated workflows, it is not easy to pause notifications for a brief period of time without going through the full notifications settings. Can you add a pause feature where you can select the amount of time to pause all notifications?

                                  • Copy Wiki entire articles/sites from one wiki to another one

                                    We created a wiki site within a channel and then added content. We realized later, that we'd like to embed the article within the wiki of a different channel. Which I had to do by copy + paste. With growing size becomes copy + paste of the content increasingly tedious, could you please provide a possibility to move articles/sites directly from one wiki to another?

                                      I recently change my system password, with MS Teams is already up and running in the background. I open Teams to check new messages, and it locks the app with the pop up "Can you please sign in again? Sorry for any inconvenience. Login Now"

                                      I click Login Now but all it does is restarting MS Teams and show me the same message. I am unable to re-authenticate. I've tried restarting the application, that didn't work.

                                      I had to right click on the systray icon to logout and re-login. I should be able to re-login when the app prompted "Login…

                                      • Teams needs a REAL Calendar!

                                        Would love to have a Calendar to allow those in the same team to view each other's availability and whereabouts. Would make it a lot easier to create appointments/meetings.

                                        The calendar could be a tab in a channel (so then you could have multiple calendars in one team) or could be an icon on the left app bar, instead of "Meetings" which is helpful to no one.

                                        Could also be helpful to add a way for us to add a SharePoint Team calendar.

                                          It would be really useful to copy a team with all Channels and files/tabs associated, this way we could create a template and copy it when creating new teams

                                            We’ve heard your suggestions and are working on the ability to clone an existing team using a template. When released, if you were to click on Add Team, then Create a Team, you would get the UI pop up that prompts you to “Create your Team” but, if you look to the bottom of the UI you would see the option to choose “Create a team using an existing team as a template”! Once you select that option, you would be able choose which channels, team settings, apps, and members to inherit via a simple setup wizard.
                                            Look for this feature to release by the end of the calendar year! And thank you all for the great feedback. -Warren
