  1. Follow and unfollow conversation thread

    Hi,

    This idea is not new. Currently we have a lot of unnecessary notifications and i believe we need flexible options to either get rid of them or setup banner/alert. And we already got "Follow channel" option in the latest update:
    https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16925461-allow-different-notifications-options-on-teams-and

    I think we should go forward and improve conversation/thread notifications.It's very annoying when you replied to the conversation and then it becomes spamming. You have no option to unfollow this conversation and keep receiving notifications. From the other hand, there are conversations where you either not mentioned directly by @ tag or not replied yet but want to…

    • Incorrect status in teams

      We have noticed that our Teams statuses are consistently incorrect. Even when some team members are active in Teams they are shown as "away" or "offline". For example, although I can see that my status is "active", my colleagues see my status as "offline".

      Can you please fix this bug?

      • Support for http and not only https

        Only possible to use HTTPS urls as tabs. Would be nice if HTTP would work as well.

        • File column sort order

          Make column sort order "sticky" so that if I prefer to sort my files by Name instead of Last Accessed, Team will remember my preference within a Team

          • Mute a channel - (Mute Chat is complete)

            I'd love to keep groups/channels in my list, but mute a channel so I don't get those. I get notified whenever some tags a channel eg @General, it's super distracting!

            Also would like the possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received for a user that chooses to mute some group chat.

                  The team is still working on this fix, as part of a larger design change. Given internal feedback, it has been decided the current design isn’t ready for primetime.

                  In the meantime, someone discovered that triple clicking will actually select all of the text. I know we want the real fix, but thought I’d share.

                  Thanks for your patience.

                • Open in Word/Excel/PowerPoint as Default

                  It would be great if Teams would have the ability to always launch the desktop app when opening Office documents as opposed to launching the online version.

                  Rest of teams is awesome.

                  • Sharepoint tab linked to a list, a library or even a specific view

                    At present, when adding a SharePoint tab, you can only link to a site. Since sites may be shared among several teams, team members will still have to browse the site to find material relevant for the actual channel. It would be nice if a tab could pull up a specific custom list, library or even a specific view of a library. That would keep stuff on the site in context for that particular channel.

                    • Copy & Paste is tempermental

                      Users reporting multiple copy/paste issues for text:

                      1. Can't paste multi-messages. Often, only the first line pastes, the rest disappear. As one user puts it: "On the Windows 10 desktop client it is nearly impossible to copy multiple messages from the chat history. A fraction of a second after letting go of the mouse, the highlight collapses down to a single message."

                      2. Can't paste in general: "Copy & Paste is tempermental, when i try to paste text in from other sources it simply doesn't paste, but then if I only copy a few (3-6) words then it does. It…

                      • Developer API to read/create teams and channels in them.

                        Slack has dev api to list teams/channels and perform bunch of management operations. It would be great if there's something similar available in Microsoft Teams as well.

                        • Block change picture

                          In Skype for Business we were able to prevent users from uploading pictures for their avatar. This was done from a PowerShell script that modified the OWA policy. We should have the same option with Teams. Hopefully in UI instead of PS.

                            • Proofing tools (spell check, theasaurus, autocorrect)

                              One of the defining features of office down the years has been the proofing tools (i.e. Spell checker, theasaurus, autocorrect, grammar checker). I would love to see these come to Teams.

                              The way I envisage this working is as I'm typing a message the famous red/blue/green squigglies that we've all become familiar with should show up.

                              Most of all I'd like autocorrect (i.e. a spelling correction that I've used previously automatically gets applied as I type). Stretch goal for this, have a single set of autocorrects that work across all of Office 365, including the client apps.

                              Some people might…

                                Hi everyone, the engineer working on this item has left the company and we’re working on replacing him. I wanted to give you that heads up because the work has paused, which extends our shipping date.

                                I really appreciate your patience as we work to get this back to actively worked on.

                                Currently, it's not possible to select & copy more than one message in a chat. When I try to select two or more messages, the focus stays on the first message making it impossible to copy whole chat.

                                There are some really ugly workarounds like: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Copying-conversations/td-p/62849 which I don't consider a solution of the situation.

                                I want to be able to select multiple messages at once and copy them by hitting CTRL+C.

                                • @Tag without selection

                                  Current when @Tagging someone you have to type @PartOfTheirName then wait for the dialog to pop up, then hit tab or enter click the desired name (Person, Channel, Team). If you fail to use the dialog the @Tag fails to work even if you match the name perfectly.

                                  What we'd like to see is typing @Name or @ChannelName or @TeamName just works even without using the dialog.

                                  • Browser/OS independent desktop notifications using HTML5

                                    Not sure about the desktop clients because there isn't one available for my operating system. However, the web app is essentially unfit for purpose because I can't tell when anyone is trying to contact me unless I sit there, constantly staring at the app.

                                    • Improve chat history search

                                      It looks like those designing the Chat are not really using it. Searching the chat history is still an awful experience:
                                      1. When you are in a conversation with a person and want to search for something, you want BY DEFAULT the results from the conversation with THAT person. But no, the smart designer of Chat was thinking to flood you first with a lot of results and then to ask you for few additional clicks to filter what you need...
                                      Please change the default to show the results for the current conversation or add another quick find or provide…

                                      • Make new conversation replies more noticeable

                                        When a reply comes through on teams, the conversation is bolded to notify you that something is unread. But it's sometimes hard to see the bolded conversations. Simply adding some extra visual like the colored notification bar on outlook would help.

                                        • Fix pasting of images

                                          Pasting images is somewhat supported - see https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public-preview/suggestions/16925587-ability-to-paste-images) but is not correctly implemented (at least on Windows).

                                          Using Google Chrome, if I right click on any image on a webpage and select "Copy Image", I can not paste it into Teams. I can paste this on competitors products, such as HipChat and of course into MS Paint.

                                          There are different issues pasting from other browsers. Edge and IE both paste a blank image. Firefox has similar behavior to Chrome (nothing is pasted at all).

                                          This is a very common use case - pasting an image from a web page.…
