  1. Include notifications based on keywords.

    We need to get notifications based on keywords. For example: I am a subject matter expert for SAP and I like to know when SAP is typed into a channel so I can offer assistance.

  3. Tagging in private channels

    Tags are finally out!

    But it works only for public channels in a Team. It would be great to have the same functionality for private channels.

    Use case:
    We are providing a DMS support for our organizational units in MS Teams.
    Each organizational unit has its own private channel where the support team and the organizational unit users are finding place. Private channels are used to avoid data leak. For the users it's difficult to mentrion all the people from the support team using @.

    So it would be greate to have the same functionallity for tags as public channels…

    Desktop app resizing to be mobile responsive

  5. Custom Team Member Roles

    Currently for any given team, there are only two options: member or owner.

    This only allows for two tiers of permissions. It would be great if there was the ability to either add custom roles to add more granularity for adding/removing permissions for different tiers of teammates.

    Thank you for your continued feedback. The feature team is currently reviewing this ask and investigating how best to accomplish this. Please continue to provide your comments and votes. We will post an update as soon as one is available.

  6. Add option to have non-threaded channels

    I'd like the capability when I add a new channel to make it non-threaded. Threaded conversations are great for some channel topics, but other more casual channels get too cluttered with multiple threads. I'd prefer to have the flexibility to decide which format I want when I create the channel.

  9. Microsoft Teams download banner / popup needs to be removed

    When a user in the Office 365 environment wants to use the web version http://teams.microsoft.com, a popup message is visible at the upper area with a prompt to install the client version:
    “Want an even faster, more collaborative experience? Download the desktop app.” By several given security compliance requirements in big IT environments, the users shouldn’t be able to install any additional software at their PCs. This popup is confusing the web-only Teams user and also it makes the software deployment team nervous.

  10. Add better support for full room cameras

    We use this camera in our conference room: https://www.owllabs.com/. It is designed to show a 360 degree view and also focus on the speaker(s). When Teams does its own resizing of the video, it often cuts off portions of the view from this camera. It would be nice to force teams to always show the full perspective from this camera (even if it is resized smaller). It would also be nice to set this as a "primary" camera in the meeting, so that it is not resized smaller.

  11. Templates for Planner

    Would be good if we could have predefined templates for planner that we can then use for repetitive tasks eg onboarding a new starter.

    This is a feature we had in Asana and have lost since moving to teams

  12. Copy conversation link in a private channel

    I'd like to be able to copy a conversation link in a private channel, like you can for a public channel. This presently doesn't exist. I would imagine the link would appear as a dead link (not authorized), to anyone not in the private channel.

  13. Editable Teams and Channels header

    Proposed solution:

    I have experience of using MatterMost (an on-premises Slack clone) and one of the features I really like is that each channel has an editable header. That header can contain markdown.

    My team is a dev team and we use the channel header to display badges for our Continuous Integration (CI) builds. I'd really like to be able to do the same in Teams.


    Problem right now, as described by one user:

    I need the team description more easily visible. Right now I have to click on Edit to be able to see the description of the Team.…

  14. Make quiet hours block incoming calls

    Please, add an option for the Quiet hours to block all phone calls in Teams. Why are there Quiet hours, if it still rings?

    Or enable the Busy Status to be time-bound, which should do the same job.

  16. Provide audit trail for Planner task edits

    Changes can be made to the characteristics of a task, e.g., description or due date, without any audit trail. It would be extremely helpful to know which user made changes and when.

  17. Allow moving a tab between channels

    Allow moving any tab, besides files and conversation, between channels in a group. On top of being able to dragging tabs to rearrange them in a channel, allow us to drag the tab to a different channel altogether. If any conversation topics at about items in that tab, it would be nice to have those seamlessly migrate to the new channel as well.

    For bonus points: Allow moving a tab between groups, in the event a group needs to be 'discontinued' without losing the data.

  18. Mulitple timezones in Meetings Tab

    My team is in multiple timezone. Therefore it would be great if I could see another timezone next to mine in the Meetings Tab, just like I can in Outlook.

  19. Multi-tab experience, or remove "Are you still there?" in the web browser

    I want a multi-tab Teams experience. In the desktop app, going between editing a doc, and back to an IM chat, and finding a Team channel, then back to editing the doc.. it's too crazy!

    So I use a web browser, and I can keep open (and bookmark) all the important stuff I access regularly.

    The problem is when I'm not on a tab for even 1 minute, it wants to reload after confirming "Are you still there?"

    I would like to see the timeout increased on that, or multi-tab chatting inside the desktop app.

    Thank you

    Thank you for your feedback. The team is looking into this feature and considering options on how to improve the overall Teams multi-tab experience, including on Web. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

  20. Scheduled auto-post messages/notifications on channels

    Our teams posts routine updates/notifications on our channel (mainly posting who is the POC for the team on that day). It would be nice if we can schedule a specific message to be posted on specific timings (or even better if customizable messages for different timings) for automation.

    Putting this item under review so we can investigate the scenario. Currently you can use Flow to automate posting. DRI/POC can be maintained in a list or file and message can be sent to Teams channels at designated intervals. For schedules as mentioned you might also consider using the Shifts app inside of Teams. This would provide additional features like shift swapping, activity lists for each shift etc.
