  1. I want to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time

    LOG INTO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
    We need the ability to sign in with multiple accounts. Many of us have several O365 accounts for various reasons (consulting, etc), and we’d need to be able to access teams directly. This is not a federation or B2B scenario, but a case where new O365 credentials have been created in another tenant for us. The app today only allows a single signed-in account at a time and that’s a blocker.

    As stated in the last update, the ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is being implemented in stages for Desktop. Faster tenant switching functionality on the Windows client has been rolled out to the public ring fully, and Mac will begin rolling out soon. Work is in progress on cross-tenant notification improvements, and support for multiple accounts on desktop will follow. We’ll keep you posted!

    Note: The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today.

    Thanks,
    Alex & the Teams team

  2. Multi-window for chats and more

    I want to have separate top-level windows for each person I'm chatting with, rather than tabs.

    Multi-window chat is in testing. I hope to have great news regarding rollout to the public rings soon.

    We are working to ensure that multi-window and other future multi-window experiences are of the highest quality when they release.

    Thanks!

  3. Include Office 365 group calendar in teams

    It would be good to be able to click on a calendar button on the left hand side to get a view of the Office 365 groups calendar as you would in the calendar app. Good for being able to look and get a glimpse of what is coming up with the group. At the moment I have to go back to the calendar to look at it.

  4. Move a project (channel) from one team to another

    We would like to move a project (channel) between groups to keep the information.

  5. Compact mode

    I really like Teams. I do. But the current chat layout is not suited for professional chats. It's way to space consuming. It looks like something imported from MSN with smiley's that take half of the screen. I would say that Slack have nailed it because they focused on the ability keeping a tight window with lots of chat text visible. In Teams the window is full and starts scrolling after like 10 sentences.

  6. Ability to archive channels

    Would be nice if we had the ability to archive channels. For example: we created a channel for a specific project. Once the project is complete, we can archive that channel or at least move it out of the primary view. I could see the channel list getting large and clunky quickly with multiple projects many of which are complete.

    Also, when a conversation in the channel is complete it should be archived or hidden.

  8. Teams uses 600MB and is super slow!

    Quotes from various users about memory usage and slow performance:

    "Team is a memory hog! 100s MB! Slack is about 50."

    "The memory consumption is over 300MB!!! This should be a priority."

    "Just started evaluating teams, 500+ MB and 10-15% CPU. This is in a citrix VDI. Does teams use hardware rendering? If so is there a way to turn it off? I had to do this with the rest of Office."

    "I dont understand why my Teams application only uses 70MB when other people in my organization are towards half a gig! What is causing this Teams?"

    "Make it…

    Great performance and user experience remain a topmost priority for us. Application launch time has seen improvements in the recent build. We will continue making improvements across the product including channel to chat switching and overall resource consumption.

  9. Move conversations to different channels

    If a conversation is started in one channel but gains importance to the point where the conversation deserves its own channel. Or a conversation was started in the wrong channel and needs to be moved

    if you have an existing post that you want to show in a different channel, you can edit the message and cross-post. This will add the top-level post to the different channel, but will not include the full set of replies. We will keep this request in mind as we evolve the cross-posting feature in the future and update if the status changes.

    Details on cross posting can be found here: https://support.office.com/article/cross-post-a-channel-conversation-in-teams-9c1252a3-67ef-498e-a7c1-dd7147b3d295.

  11. Integrate fully with Planner, Sharepoint, and Outlook Tasks, Calendar

    Please integrate more with Planner (hopefully soon with Kanban and timeline visualisation channels for tasks) and/or with sharepoint web parts that do this, so all tasks linked in one place. And Outlook as well (for calendar and emails pertinent to chats and tasks). Until then in effect Teams is yet just another tool to use that is not completely integrated for communication + coordination.

    This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.

    Please know the team is actively working on this feature.

  12. Allow drag and drop from Outlook directly to Teams

    Dragging and dropping attachments directly from the e-mail window without having to first drag them onto the desktop (for instance) and them from there dragging them to the files tab in Teams would make many lives so much easier.

    There are a few suggestions to enable drag and dropping, but it seems that it is already working, at least with the desktop client, but making that work directly from an e-mail window would be very nice.

  13. Access to email from left tab panel

    If there was an Outlook tab integrated on the left, similar to the Meetings tab (which is effectively the Outlook calendar), one could stay in Teams all day and not have to switch out.

    Adding email as a left tab panel remains under review. We are working on adding several Teams and email integrations:

    - Share to Teams: Share a copy of an email and any attachments into a chat or channel directly from Outlook

    - Share to Outlook: Share a copy of a channel or chat conversation via email directly from Teams

    - Actionable Teams Activity Emails: Teams missed activity emails display the latest replies and allow you to reply directly from Outlook

  14. Rename of Team Channel doesn't rename associated Sharepoint files Folder

    When renaming a Team Channel, the associated Sharepoint folder continues with it's previous name. This could lead to confusion.

  15. Better visual delineation between `Reply` and `Start a new conversation`

    It's very confusing to new users that there is a difference between replying to an existing conversation and starting a new one within a channel. This is a visual thing as much as anything else. The 'reply' buttons are not naturally attractive if you just want to start typing a message. There should be a logical gap between the bottom of a conversation and 'start a new conversation'. 'Start a new conversation' needs to be separated visually, as if it's a second order command rather than a first order...reply.

  16. 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.

  19. Delete Private Chat threads

    This request is for the ability to completely delete a private chat thread. (Not hide/archive.)

    Again, this was pulled out into its own topic because it is still under review and no decision has been made.

    To recap what has already been completed from the other topic:


    1. Delete your own messages anywhere in Teams.

    2. Team Owners can choose if users can edit/delete in their tenant as well as choose if admins have the power to delete any message posted in public channels.

    3. The ability to hide your private chat threads (these are not the chat threads in channels, but the…

    Guys, please add pinned items for channels. We often pin important articles/messages/files so that the whole team can see it. Very important!
