  1. Loss of keyboard focus in Excel Online on switch to another window and back

    I have an Excel file open in Excel Online in MS Teams. I am editing the file - I can use the keyboard to enter text and navigate. I switch to another window. When I come back to the file in Excel Online in MS Teams, the keyboard does not work. I have to click or tap on the screen in order to be able to use the keyboard again.

    I do not want to click/tap. Please keep/restore the focus.

  2. Create new Team created alerts for O365 admins

    Make onboarding easier notify O365 admins when a new Team is created. Currently there is no good way for us to track new Teams. An alert feature would help us onboard new Team owners and ensure they are following best practices.

  3. powerpoint presentation mode

    When using the Win 10 desktop version of Teams I am unable to Present a Powerpoint presentation.

    A dialog box opens requesting a different app. But there isn't any app listed.
    This doesn't occur in other version of Powerpoint Online or Teams when in the Browser.

    Please fix this.

  5. True producer or 'Eye in the sky' features

    In the GCC and Biz options, I think there should be more 'Eye in the Sky' producer options in regards to room systems. Items such as:

    -Create special producer user account to setup meetings for users in your tenant or as itself.

    -Remotely monitoring a broadcast without being a participant as an IT admin.

    -Setting options such as record for scheduled meetings (like broadcast) when creating meeting.

    As an admin dealing with higher level executives as well as non tech savvy clients, I spend a lot of time baby sitting meetings. While some of these options are associated with standard/legacy…

  6. Give the ability to see past meetings and meeting notes.

    It would be useful to have the ability to view meetings that have already occurred and to be able to record them.

  8. need more integrations and apps!

    To even think about competing with Slack and WebEx teams you need more integrations, apps and bots. I'd like to see ServiceNow integration the most, but the list of apps is pretty poor compared to the other team communication tools on the market.

  9. More Teams training videos through T-Bot, and regularly kept updated, dont let these videos fall behind the curve. .

    I am absolutely a fan of been able to find training material within the Teams application, and this is fantastic to be able to point end users. But Teams has been updated very rapidly, and these videos are growing more and more out of date. Short, fun ,videos are key to training busy users. Please review how your future proofing this great training tool, and keeping it up to date and more variety. The ideal is a library full of these short videos.

  10. Download to a specific foler

    Download files from Teams to the "Downlaod" folder is not always a good idea. we end up always cutting he file from that folder and pasting it into our desired folder.

    Would be good to have the option of selecting the destination folder for any download. this will allow eliminate the need for a cut and past and improve user experience

  11. cannot change - is this reading my email autoresponder message?

    i am unable to change my status. it is "stuck" on "Out of Office". i have an autoresponder on my email account (Exchange).

    is Teams overriding my choice based on having the autoresponder turned on?

    i should be able to set my status to whatever i choose in Teams.

  12. user reinstall

    If a user - against policy - uninstalls Teams, we have to uninstall it for everyone and reinstall it. That is a nightmare - especially if it is run on a Remote Desktop per-session.

    Why is there not a way to simply reinstall for the user by policy?

  13. please cap notifications (ie.out of office)

    When someone in a group is out of office, you get a message each and every-time you post. Would be better to cap at 2-3...across ALL TEAMS/CHATS with that person

  14. attach files

    it would be good to be able to attach a copy of a file in Teams (source onedrive) rather than just sharing the link. It seems that if the file to be transferred is on onedrive, one can only share the link to it rather than send a copy. it would be good to have the choice, similar to what happens with emails in outlook

  15. Add action options to any Teams message

    Similar to Slack's new Actions feature (https://slack.com/apps/collection/actions), it would be super useful to be able to create a task/follow-up from a message.

    For example, we use the Zendesk connector and it would be great if we could create a new ticket from a message in a conversation.

  16. Customizeable Questions for Rate my Call

    Want to have the popup after a meeting to rate the call be customizeable. We want to be able to ask different questions, especially when trying to troubleshoot issues that arise.

  17. Explain what the product does

    I'd like to learn what the product does. I did not find a Help link within the window of the product. The product was imposed on me through some project within my company. I do not understand the purpose of Microsoft Teams - it seems like a chat application. What is the benefit?!

  18. thread

    I was thinking it would be great if you could include members who are not part of a channel to a certain thread, so even though they are not part of the channel and cannot see the other threads, they can participate in the thread that they are tagged in.

  19. Auto-start is Unreliable

    I have found this setting to be very unreliable. It usually works for maybe 2-3 times, but eventually it no longer starts automatically after restarting my PC, etc. At that time, I have to manually launch it again to reset the behavior again, each 2-3 times. :(

    This has been an issue for several months since I installed the app. I love the app, but I need it to be more reliable.

  20. User column that shows activity, chats, teams content needs a sash.

    There are 3 vertical areas, left is a ribbon for activity, chat, teams etc select, then a sub-selection to the right of that, then an area where conversations etc are shown to the right of that. Middle column needs a sash. Often team names are too wide to fit.

    The same area hold saved conversations. They show 2 lines then "..." A sash is needed here as well. Many times you can't get enough context to find the saved conversation.

    Saved conversations should be navigable by user.
