  1. Support for Private Channels

    Looking for the ability to create a channel that only channel members can see. Private channels are available in slack. There is an admin for private channels who is the creator, and they are the ones who add/remove users.

    Five types of public/privacy that is being asked for by users:

    - Public-Open (visible anywhere including outside the org and anyone can join)
    - Public-Invitation (visible anywhere including outside the org, must be invited)
    - Company-Open (only visible inside the org and anyone in the org can join; outside the org must be invited)
    - Company-Invitation (only visible inside the org,…

      Hey guys, guess who’s back from maternity leave? Your favorite Teams PM, Suphatra! I’ve been back for a few weeks and catching up on where we’re at in Engineering.

      Private channels is still actively in development, and I am hoping I’ll be given clearance to share with you some more details. What would be great is if you can post in this thread any specific questions you have about the feature, besides just an inquiry on the release date.

      You can also email them to me at sparavi@microsoft.com, as well as any other concerns you might have.

      It’s good to be back, and good to be posting on here again. I hope you are all doing well!

      Sincerely,
      Suphatra

    • 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.

        This request is still being worked upon by the feature team, but I don’t have any additional details to share at this time.
        I do know there is a lot of work going into this and I hope to have some projected timelines soon.

      • Please create a professional compact chat layout!

        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.

        • Need full capabilities of Planner in Teams

          Right now you can add a new tab for Planner in Teams. However, you are not afforded all the capabilities of Planner in this tab. Its really "Planner Lite." Here are some items you cannot do with Planner in Teams:

          1) If you create a Planner in Teams, it will not be shown in Planner itself!
          2) you can go to the group (in web outlook) wich is automatically created for the team and click there on planner and it will take you to the planner for the new group, which then cannot be displayed at teams, but the team…

            The remaining item #5 is still actively being worked on. No status change there.

            As for the bonus #9, it is completed!
            We now support Guest Access for the Planner Tab, including support for guests to comment on Tasks!

          • Linux client

            My team has some users on Linux, and one benefit Slack has is a Linux client. Without a Linux client on Microsoft Teams, some orgs may have to turn away in favor of Slack so everyone can participate without keeping a browser open all the time.

              • I want to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time

                LOG INTO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
                Original user posted:
                I would like to heave this multi-team/tenant option within “MS Teams”, like in Slack. Currently I’m in four different organization. They’re using all office365, three of them now changed from Slack to Teams. I’ve to permanently login/logout to switch to the related MS Team. This is really time consuming.

                Another user says:
                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…

                • 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.

                    Unfortunately due to re-prioritization this item has slipped back onto the “backlog” for the time being.

                    I hope to see it move back into “working on it” soon and will continue to engage the feature team with your feedback.

                  • Move channels into other teams

                    We would like to move a project (channel) between groups to keep the information, or be able to sort channels to our liking.

                      • 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…

                          It is annoying to have to click on the “New Messages” button or scroll down manually when new messages arrive. The suggestion here is to keep scrolling down to bottom and to provide a button to jump back to last unread message.

                            Several updates shipped at the end of July. I wanted to get some feedback in the comments if you have seen an improvement on how the auto-scroll works.

                            If you are on the message it won’t auto-scroll because we don’t want to suddenly change the focus if you are in the midst of reading.

                            Please let me know your thoughts in the comments so I can bring your feedback to the feature team.

                            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.

                              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.

                              • 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.

                                    • Create Team from existing SharePoint site, and other requests

                                      #1 User Request on SharePoint:
                                      Enable integration of Microsoft Teams to an existing SharePoint site rather than to always create a new site collection

                                      There have been a few ideas raised on integrating lists, OneNote, document libraries, etc. from an existing SharePoint site with Microsoft Teams, but in summary, it will be best if we could create a team upon on existing site, so that the "Files" and "Notes" tabs would directly reference the existing document library and OneNote in SharePoint. It does not make sense to have two separate sites: one for all the usual SharePoint stuff, and another…

                                      • Multi-window for chats and more

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

                                        • 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.

                                            Still being worked upon but it looks like we are getting closed to the finish line. I hoping to switch this item to “testing” in the following weeks. :)

                                            I’ll keep you posted as I hear more from the feature team.
