  1. Reporting Capabilities

    We are after reporting capabilities to capture granular detail on activity within Teams.

    We would like to have data capturing:
    1. Number of users enabled
    2. Number of daily active unique users
    3. Breakdown of devices uniquely used
    4. Number of teams created
    5. Number of teams deleted
    6. How many instant messages sent overall in the Chat
    7. How many calls made in Teams
    8. Number of files shared in channels
    9. How many combined ‘likes’ have been made over a period of time

      • 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…

        • 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

          • Support for http and not only https

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

            • 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.

                          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.

                            • Allow copying whole chat conversations

                              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.

                              • 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.

                                  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 we have to use other services such as Google Hangout/Meet or other video conferencing apps to meet with people outside of our company, because MS Teams does not allow screen sharing for anonymous guests. Its a real pain ********** that Teams doesn't have this ability and most other services do. We meet with people outside of our company a lot so we frequently need to abandon MS Teams for these meetings.

                                    At this point, screen sharing is enabled in our desktop client, but not web client. (in general, not just anonymous/guests). Adding browser support is in progress.

                                    Please comment if you are using the desktop app and are still unable to do so.

                                    I will keep you posted once available. Thanks.

                                    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.…

                                      Hi folks, I’ve gotten a number of emails reporting this bug is back. Augh! Sorry about that.

                                      I’ve let the team know so we can find-and-kill this bug. Will let you know when a fix is deployed.

                                    • @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.

                                        I’m excited to share that I got to use this in our experimental settings the other day. We’ve built it and are testing it internally. I’ll let you know once it moves up in the validation rings!

                                        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…

                                          This feature request has now moved to “working on it”. The team is actively working on this request and I will share more details as they become available.

                                          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.
