  1. Integrate with MacOS notifications

    Notifications built into the OS (which all apps I've seen use other than Outlook and now Teams) are more functional and allow for more user control. Most importantly, they honor Do Not Disturb settings, which is critical.

    We are getting closer, and are still working thru some bugs, but hope to release this as part of a Public Preview pack in early 2021! (Windows 10 released with the December 2020 pack this week)

    You can learn more about the new Microsoft Teams Public Preview program here: https://aka.ms/TeamsPublicPreview, and Teams administrators can find documentation to manage which users will see the Public Preview option here: https://aka.ms/TeamsPublicPreviewAdmin

  2. Integrate tasks in planner with Outlook Tasks & Calendar

    Every time you create a task in planner via Microsoft Teams and assign it to someone in your organisation/team it would be nice to see that task in outlook as well. I want to know and to be alerted that I have a task assigned to me without having to lon on to Microsoft Teams.
    It would be great to have a place to see how many tasks have been created in a team/channel and the status of each one.

  3. URL shortener for Teams

    When using the "get link" option in teams it would be better to have an embedded link shortener. Pasting the link in email looks terrible.

  4. Improve audio notifications

    VOLUME: The sound is too low!! Most people don't think it's even on. Let us customize the sound level, please.

    UNIQUE SOUNDS FOR CALLS VS CHATS/MESSAGES: Right now sounds are all or nothing. This is not good. For example, you may want to have sound for Calls but not for chat or messages. There is a difference when you need to hear that someone is calling you – versus getting the constant bing/bing/bing on message chat.

    UNIQUE SOUND FOR PRIVATE CHAT: It would be nice to have different sounds for private chat and notifications, so that its easy to know…

  5. Notification for Planner Tasks

    Planner and Teams just needs a notification - when a task has been created for an assigned user that user should receive a notification - currently we are doing a work around by starting a conversation with a mention of a member name

  6. Tag for status updates

    Skype for Business supports tagging for status updates. It's a really buried feature, but one that is really helpful when trying to get in touch with someone. Would love to make this more easily available in Microsoft Teams to be better able to catch people as they become available (e.g. know when they come in in the morning, when they finish their current meeting, etc.).

  7. Allow external users to access group chat

    Why isn't it possible to add external users to group chat? It's a big step backwards comparing to Skype for Business and it makes life more difficult for companies working with various clients on a daily basis.

    Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to announce the next step in our journey for External Access support as we enable you to start a group chat with up to 250 participants across different organizations. The team is testing this internally, and it is important to note that you will have to be enabled by admin policy for External Access in order to be able to use this new functionality. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

  8. Multiple Time Zones in Shifts

    Need the ability to have multiple Time Zones in Shifts. For Global companies a single Time Zone just doesn't cut it.

  9. Adaptive Cards + Webhooks

    We NEED webhooks to support Adaptive Cards. MessageCards are not flexible enough!

    We are happy to announce that we now have support for posting Adaptive Cards via Incoming Webhooks in developer preview!

    You can try it out with any of your favorite HTTP request composer tools (PowerShell/Postman/Fiddler) using Message Activity format with https://docs.microsoft.com/microsoftteams/platform/task-modules-and-cards/cards/cards-reference#adaptive-card attachment.

    Please keep providing feedback on other features you’d like to see. We will post further updates as we have them.

  10. Generate meeting reports for Teams meetings

    Would be great to have organizer be able to generate a call report at the end of each meeting containing call information (attendees, chat transcript, recorded video location, etc.) This could be used for sending out meeting recap etc.
