  1. Voicemail on busy

    When someone calls me, either internally or externally, and I'm on another call, the default behavior should send the call to voicemail after popping a notification and perhaps a subtle ring. This business of ringing more than once when I'm on a call is not helpful.

  2. BToE

    We need BToE support with our Polycom deskphones. Without it, we will have to always run Skype for Business side by side to sign in our users to the phones.

  4. Allow to post a reply to a conversation via REST

    Currently it is quite easy to start a conversation via the webhook of a channel.

    It would be great if the POST of this webhook would return an conversation id. This id could then be used in a subsequent request to reply to the initial conversation.

  5. Guests should be able to send files in private chats

    Guest can send files/images inside channels but not inside private chats. Without that feature the communication with external developers or testers is almost not possible or had to be done inside a channel, which would disturb other team members.

  6. Assigning a non-member to a task in planner adds them to the Team

    If you assign a person a task in planner who isn't a member of the team, they automatically get added to the team. There is a message which says non-member but I don't think this is clear enough.

    There should be another warning/pop up telling the user that if they assign a task to someone not on the team they will get added to the team. This is a security concern!

  7. Allow upload of pre-recorded video

    It would be great to upload a pre-recorded video such as a or town hall. This would allow producers to switch between the pre-recorded content and the live component.
    It would also allow people to use Live Events for webinars with better production value as they could record the content beforehand and then be available to answer Q&A live.

  8. Search OneNote

    Hi Team,

    I created a OneNote Document in Teams. There's no option to search in that document. It requires to open document in OneNote online or OneNote application to be able to search.

    Please Fix this issue!

  9. Allow for explicit Connector configuration (not possible in MS Teams because of O365 Groups drawbacks in this area

    Allow for explicit Connector configuration (not possible in MS Teams because of O365 Groups drawbacks in this area)

    Currently if you don't set Connetors in O365 Groups via powershell command to disabled you would have it fully open in O365 Groups.

    The MS Teams app suffers from this drawback because you cannot allow Connectors. On the MS Teams admin console it looks like one could control Connectors, but if you get the deeper dependency to O365 Groups and that the Setting there is "oversteering" MS Teams, you see all granularity is not helping you with Connectors.

    On Enterprise Level this…

  10. Support for Landscape mode in iOS/Android app

    Landscape support for iOS would be a real differentiation point to Slack. Slack lacks support for years now. Users of plus size devices would love to read and type to a channel. If you use a Plus size device in landscape and switch to Teams it is quiet annoying that the orientation switches to Portrait as well.

  11. Custom Praise images please

    We would like to be able to upload our own images so that we can praise staff using our praise/values identity.

    This would assist us to move from other communications tools which currently have this functionality.

  13. Support for planner charts

    It looks like in it's current "preview" form, the planner charts that show the circular "status" chart, the "members" bar chart, etc. are not present. It would be great to have these back for each plan that's being worked on. Our Teams use these quite a bit. Thanks.

  14. Important Message Notification

    Currently, there does not seem to be any notification on any platform when a message in a Team/Channel is marked Important. Please put an option to be notified for important messages, even if you aren't actually mentioned in the post.

  16. Can incoming emails sent into a channel generate notifications the same way conversations do?

    If I'm following a channel I'd like to be able to receive notifications on ALL activity in that channel. The biggest thing that's missing is the ability to get banner notifications and a number in the Teams icon (like when someone posts a new conversation) for incoming emails to the channel.

    We want to have a group of people monitor automated alerts coming into a channel and respond to them but without notifications we have to keep bringing the Teams window up and manually checking it.

  17. Integrate Delve Profiles in Teams

    Make Delve Profiles (own Profile and that of others) available in Teams and include profile content in Teams-Search.

    Delve Profiles are good fo showing skills and projects of our employees.

    But the Profiles and there information are not accessible in Teams which breaks our usecase.

  18. 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.

  19. Follow Up Ability

    There should be an ability to make anything in Teams a follow up task (possibly link it to planner). If someone posts something, I want to be take that post and create a task with it for follow up. With this, similar to Outlook's summary page - I want a summary page in Teams, such as ALL current open tasks, new unread messages, etc.

  20. Integrate the client login with Office 365

    Integrate the client login with Office 365, similar to the integration of OneNote, Word, and Excel. This utilizes the current login information instead of prompting the user for credentials each time the client is started.
