  2. select members for specific channels

    Although there is now private channels it would be good if on a public channel you can either everyone in the team to that channel or just a select few. This would enable all team members to dip in and out of a number of channels but not necessarily be part of every channel. Our team is large but I would rather have fewer MS teams and more channels than lots of teams. quite a few staff are reluctant to embrace Teams/IT in general and I think being part of lots of teams would scare them off

  5. Incoming call solution

    Need a better more subtle notification for when you're in an active call/meeting and a 2nd call comes in. The incoming call is completely disruptive to active call, silences primary call, has a load ring for incoming, at least until able to decline the incoming call

  7. Create stacks feature in planner, to "stack" buckets in groups for a more intuitive and better organized card view of buckets in planner.

    The card view in planner is a powerful tool, but the horizontal-only layout of the buckets extends far out and becomes hard to manage with a large number of buckets.

    With "stacks", you can group a bunch of buckets together and still have the vertical list of tasks, but be able to collapse a "stack" and open a different "stack", or open multiple "stacks" at once to get a project overview. Each bucket will still be scrollable, as would the entire window of stacks.

    This would give project managers a much more comprehensive overview of a project and make navigation…

  8. Virtual PostNotes, or Brainstorming tool

    I'm often running workshops that require brainstorming and in-person would use post it notes for faster idea generation and group them in categories for discussion.
    I'm using online apps for this now, but having this in Teams would be great to keep everything in one place.
    Tried employee ideas, but I want it specific for the teams channel and delete all the system generated ones.

  10. The most recent thread on posts should be at the top, not bottom.

    The most recent thread on posts should be at the top, not bottom. I use this a lot and scrolling to the bottom is time consuming.

  11. TEAMS / ASSIGNMENTS

    I want students to be able to write on a PDF in Teams/Assignments without having to download the file, open it in Adobe, edit/comment, save, then Add Work to the assignment before Turning In. This make using Teams very difficult with students. Converting to Word does not work with most PDF's. Too many steps required for students. Forcing teachers to request Google Classroom over Teams.

  13. Chat - Capability of Clear chat history

    Capability of Clearing personal 1 to 1 Chat history. Also, the Chat view to show a blank home page for privacy, like Skype list all contacts and when the Chat view opens only when selected. I don't understand Why favorite features that worked for older products wasn't considered for this one????

  15. Participants show video only to host

    It would be great if participants in a meeting could show their video feed ONLY to the host. I use Teams to teach high school, and I think my students would feel more comfortable turning on their cameras if they knew I was the only one who could view their video. It makes it easier for the teacher to teach, while removing some of the self-consciouness of being on camera.

  18. Reply to a chat while in a Teams file in another channel or Team

    While in a file in Teams, it would be a nice feature if users could respond to chat message without leaving the Team's file.

  19. Select Individual People to Collaborate on Whiteboard

    When in a meeting and using the interactive whiteboard, it would be more useful if the presenter could do more than select only they can edit or everyone can edit. I'd like to be able to easily select who can edit and be able to change who immediately and fluidly without having to close out of the whiteboard.

  20. Open microphone

    Teams should show a user a large icon or image when their microphone is open, to avoid accidents.
