  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Better Team Permission Control

    The current team settings are very bare-bones.

    For instance, there's a single permission that allows for adding/modifying/removing tabs. These should all be separate permissions.

    For the sake of usability, there could be a "master" permission for each piece of functionality (tabs, channels, connectors, etc...) and an expandable list of the sub-options where, if you didn't want to give a certain role all of the permissions for a certain functionality, you could give a role a subset of the create/modify/remove permissions.

    Thank you all very much for the great response. The survey is now closed. The feature team will be reviewing all the data that was gathered and responded based on the findings.
    Again, thank you for helping us make Microsoft Teams the best it can be.

  4. 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.

  5. moving a document breaks link

    When we are sorting out our filing system in files, creating new folders to move and tidy up our document's this changes the location of the document and breaks any links you have previously sent to users also the link in the conversations. This is extremely unworkable for our organisation, we need to be able to upload and move documents. keeping the integrity of any previous links sent. For example if you attach a document to a channel, this does not go into a folder it just sits in files, when links are sent round for this document they are…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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!

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. Barge, Whisper, Listen In

    I found a similar request for Skype here (https://www.skypefeedback.com/forums/299913-generally-available/suggestions/8900035-monitoring-features-silent-monitor-whisper-bar). I haven't been able to find documentation on implementation of the following so wanted to throw it out there just in case.

    1) Whisper - Managers or supervisors can tell agents what to say (advice or answers) without customer hearing them.

    2) Barge In - Managers or other users can jump on a call without permission from the original user to help with a call (especially useful in call center situations).

    3) Listen - Managers or other users can listen in on a call, given they have the access…

  16. 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.

  17. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. Do NOT reorder messages based on replies

    If a message has replies, Teams changes the order of messages so that the original message takes on the timestamp of the latest reply.

    DO. NOT. DO. THAT.

    It is horribly flow-breaking to have the original conversation reordered based on later replies. This is totally unnecessary. The Activity feed can help me quickly jump to "new" posts regardless of their location in the channel order.

  20. 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.
