  1. Workaround for AFK message in Meetings

    As a workaround for an AFK message in Meetings, you can add a background with the word "Away" or whatever you like and then when you are away, select that background.

    Hope this is helpful to others that want an AFK feature in Meetings.

  3. Teams Client App - Block Sharepoint/OneDrive access for UnManaged Devices

    We currently have to block Teams for users on UnManaged devices via a CA Policy to ensure they cant download files to their local PCs thus we restrict users to the Web App of Teams. However these people really need the client app version as chat/online meeting functionality is 10x better.

    All i want is for unmanaged devices to have access to the client app of Teams but we can restrict access to OneDrive & Sharepoint.

    Can this be done? We dont want to rely on DLP and AIP for this, we want files blocked.

    Cant understand why CA policy…

  4. Virtual Breakroom

    We now have a meeting called "breakroom" it is scheduled all day/everyday and can be seen at the top of our calendar marked as "free" We encourage everyone to make it a part of their day, and our new remote culture — where they can join co-workers, have fun, swap ideas and get to know each other better!

  5. If you could make it user intuitive like Skype that would be great, also the permanent record of IM conversations is an overatep of privacy

    Simplify your use of program, i.e. I want to have a full control of my page as simple as Skype was. To create a team of my pears, approximately 30 in about ten minutes. Like Skype, I could see my peers real time status, green yellow red etc. I could click on an individual's name on the team list and IM, and delete conversation at my choosing....NOT hide it? I learned Skype for business in about a day overall, IM, meetings, etc. Teams is just not user intuitive "fast and simple"

    I would like to view "number of attendees" in Teams Live event with an external encoder. Today I can´t see how many has joined the event when using an external encoder, which is visible at the top of the screen when using the Teams option setting instead.

  10. Ability to give Planner different permissions than the Team it's embedded in

    I have a leadership team channel that needs to be confidential. however, we have a Planner that often needs to delegate tasks to other members of the organization. I'd like to be able to expand permissions on the Planner but only give people visibility to their own tasks.

  11. Remove files from Teams

    Please add a delete button or sync up OneDrive and Teams to allow for documents to removed. Why a file would remain once it has been deleted is confusing.

  12. Joining Team by Link

    My professor gave me a link to join a team with, and when I clicked join team it says request sent. However, my professor said that on his end, it says I am a part of the team channel. On my end it still says requested and that I'm not a part of the team.

  18. File replace dialog box disappears

    When I try to send a file, if the same file was already sent to another Team Member, there is some dialog box which ask if the file should be "replaced". If this dialog box is covered by some other window (which is always the case if you drag&drop a file from a folder) it disappears and cancels the file send.

    This makes sending of the file very hard and inconvenient because you need to move the overlapping window before the dialog box appears.

    Please remove this dialog box and always replace the file, or at least make it to…

  20. Be able to set location in Shift per group/ Shift

    We have lots of contractors that work around the UK so being able to add location clock in for per group and per shift would be so useful. By us putting the address in it would come up in the info of the shift on the users end.
