  1. Make it easier to navigate to a specific private chat

    When you are on that chat tab on teams so you can see all your private message channels, if you want to navigate to a new private chat with a specific person (person A) if you click by their profile picture it does not navigate you to your chat with person A, instead it opens up this annoying more details dialog which then completely blocks the area you need to click to open that private channel with them, now you have to move your mouse away to get rid of that popup and move it back and HOPEFULLY don't leave…

  2. Separate O3654 group creation permissions for Public and Private group creation

    Right now we can only control who can create teams (groups) or not - it's all or nothing. We would like to permit creation of private teams separately from creation of public teams. For example, members of "Private Team Creators" can create private teams all day long but cannot create public teams until they are added to "Public Team Creators" group.

  3. I have a vision issue, and your program is barely usable. Why are there no accessability options in this program?

    This should have accessibility options. I have a vision disability and every time our company IM messes up and we are asked to use your programe I struggle all day due to this. When you have to magnify the size of the text there are no options to make other ui elements smaller or remove them all together to increase the viewing space to an acceptable region.

  4. Widget for contact shortcut to call someone on teams on Android device

    There should be a possibility to get a contact on the smartphones main screen. So you have him/her on "speed dial" over an android widget.

  5. Viewing pictures in a Teams files folder

    Instead of viewing pictures as an individual file, a slideshow option should be included so that we can view the file in a quick and easy way

  7. GDPR compliant about Additional Notes, request history and making approval process private

    There is a functionality in Shifts that requester can choose the reason and leave the note (detail reason) to explain why taking the time off. This message is visible for all the team owners. Also the Request History, cannot be deleted and it is visible to all Team Owners.

    To comply with GDPR Article 9, we should not disclose sensitive personal information publicly to anyone. Therefore, the ideas are:


    1. Make it possible to disable the optional Notes field to ensure the reason information is not exposed to other possible Team Owner that is not the employees' direct report manager.


    2. Make…

  9. Turn on Microsoft Teams notification across applications setting at once

    It would be great that we could turn on for Microsoft Teams notification across applications at once. We currently need to set settings for each apps as we use Teams app on different devices, desktop client, web client and mobile. Also, it is time consuming to set settings each time when a team would be added.

  11. Sharing from Android os

    When sharing from android os, I want you to be able to select from the channel list instead of searching for channels.
    I don't remember channel names because I'm on a lot of teams

  12. Desktop interface

    Our team sometimes accidentally starts new topics on the teams desktop app.
    The ‘reply’ and ’start new thread’ boxes are very close to each other, and are sometimes mixed up.
    What should have been a reply is a new thread in those cases.

  13. Ability to hide "Share with Outlook"

    I don't use Outlook on the web, so I don't use this feature.
    But it cannot be hidden.
    When not using, please implement the setting to hide.

  14. Show most popular post/post with most likes

    In order to easily figure out what kind of messages get the most/best feedback it would be perfect to have a feature to find out what post in a channel or team got the most likes.

  15. I would love to see the "Shared with you" folder of OneDrive show up in my OneDrive in Teams

    I and my team often am accessing files back and forth. I would love to see the "Shared" side panel on the web version of OneDrive show up in Teams as well as the OneDrive desktop app for quicker access than having to find the specific conversation I had with them

  16. Automatic admission into meetings

    Without manual intervention from the organizers meeting options to allow "Everyone" to join.

    Currently, there is no way to create a policy for this to be defaulted in our users meetings. We would like to see automatic admission for everyone into our Teams Meetings.

  18. Be able to copy schedules for individuals or individual groups over a number of weeks. Master schedule location.

    I have a number of different groups within my workforce that are assigned different rota periods. I have staff on 1, 2 & 3 week rotas and it is very hard to copy the schedule over. Easy option would be reoccurring shifts but this seems to of been placed on the backlog for some reason.

    I have multiple staff who oversee the programming of schedules for different groups in one teams schedule, meaning copying the entire schedule doesn't work. It would be good to be able to copy individuals or groups separately. It would also be good to have a…

  19. While sending meeting invitation we can invite people but there is no option available for "OPTIONAL" attendee

    Hi team,

    While sending a meeting invitation We should have an option like "OPTIONAL"., so that person's attendance is not compulsory, but he is been informed that invitation has been shared with the required individuals.

    In outlook, while sending meeting invitation it is available.
