  1. Allow layout changes for for what is seen when opening (without the massive message area). Like Skype for business layout.

    Allow layout changes. For instance, allow users to pick a layout like Skype for business so that only a contact list is seen when opened (without the massive message area).

  2. Unify the Microsoft Communication Infrastructre

    Do I use Teams to communicate or do I use Outlook? If I split my communication between Outlook and Teams, how do I search for information from a single interface? The separate communication infrastructure is a mess.

    With Skype, Skype sessions used to appear in outlook as “Conversations.” Using Outlook, I could search for communication threads through mailboxes and folders as well as Converstions. Loved it!

    With Teams there is no interoperability and the communication threads are separated. I have to search through two separate messaging systems to find information.

    Terrible.

  3. Improve the Skype to Teams User Migration Process

    We are rolling out Teams to specific groups. The problem we have is that other users who have experimented with Teams but aren't running it regularly never see messages sent to them in Teams. Even when we switch them to Skype Only mode, the contact in Teams is for an orphaned Teams account. The user using Skype has to message a Teams only user to start a chat with the Skype Only user. If the Teams only user tries to message the Skype Only user, the message goes into a black hole.

    This is killing adoption. New users don't want…

  4. Teams にもSKype for Business にあった「今すぐ会議」を付けて欲しいです。

    お客様と会議を直ぐに開くとき
    「今すぐ会議」があれば、即会議を開催し、
    URLを生成してメールを送信する。事をよくしています。
    Teamsは相手が社内であれば簡単に設定して会議を開く事ができますが
    相手が社外の場合、少し面倒だと感じます。

  7. Please add an "off work" status.

    Please add a "off work" status with its own color. Appear away can be used throughout the day and doesn't immediately convey that we are done working for the day.

  8. Picture uploads

    I want to be able to take a photo and immediately send it to my groups, just like I can with instant messaging. I was hoping this would be my new go to tool for work groups but Apples Instant messaging is still easier to use and quicker.

  9. Allow adding of other callers to a conversation.

    Allow another caller to be added to the conversation in the same manner we used to be able to do in SFB.

  13. Enable @mention for the certain member of a team

    I would like to have a dedicated chat group only for using @mention function. Currently we can use @mention to users, teams, and channels.

  15. Ab

    Need the ability to edit messages/conversations. I've noticed typos/grammatical (almost as if there is autocorrect) mistakes that I didn't make in messages that I've send but don't show the ability to edit messages within the Team I created (and I'm the owner).

  16. Spinning new conversations off of existing threads

    Support spinning off conversation into new (but related & tracked) conversations.   Use case:  A technical discussion leads to 2 (or more) sub-discussions on specific topics.  These could be broken out into new related/tracked conversations without polluting the original thread (or spinning into dis-jointed threads where resolutions are lost).

  17. Edits to Channel or Chat Posts Don't Reflect your change Until The Page or Focus is Refreshed/Reloaded Manually

    Edits to Channel or Chat Posts Don't Update Until The Page or Focus is Refreshed/Reloaded Manually. In a web client this means refreshing the page or switching context and back. In native app this means just changing context and back.

    This seems tangentially related to other issues about refresh problems:
    https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18922000-automatic-refresh-of-channel
    https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18664153-within-the-chat-section-there-doesn-t-appear-to-be
    https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/37617424-automatic-refresh-mandatory-or-optional
    https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/31845766-no-automatic-refresh
    https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/32103328-refresh-button-for-teams

    But I am specifically complaining about post edits not refreshing. Separate issues but I wouldn't be surprised if they had the same "fix".

  18. Remove subject from new "conversation" feature

    Remove the "Subject" line from the new conversations feature. It makes sense to have a subject on an announcement, but having it on a simple conversation adds a level of formality or complexity to the conversation...its almost like youre composing an email. Even if its not required it takes more time to post because now you have to think oh wait, does this need a subject?

  19. Allow guests to join immediately teams sessions

    Unlike Skype for business, Teams does allow to configure the behaviour when a guest join the session, nor via PC or directly by phone call. They always get sent to waiting room until moderator joins
