  2. Open in Word/Excel/PowerPoint as Default

    It would be great if Teams would have the ability to always launch the desktop app when opening Office documents as opposed to launching the online version.

    Rest of teams is awesome.

  4. Prepare meeting breakout rooms

    As a creator of a meeting I want to prepare my breakout rooms before the meeting gets started. So i already assigned people to rooms before the meeting is going to start.

    When the meeting is in progress i Only need to open the rooms.

    Next to that you want to send documents directly from the main room to the breakout rooms

  5. Merge Calls

    The ability to "Merge calls" was available in Skype for Business. The ability to call one person, put them on hold then call a second person, and then merge the calls together just like it was on Skype for Business.
    Why was this ability removed?

  6. Enable gallery view in browser

    Gallery view is enabled in the Teams app, and is great, especially since it has been increased.

    However, when accessing via a browser, gallery view is not available, only speaker view.

  7. Remove Bot Mention Requirement

    It seems as though currently all bots only work if you @mention them, so my assumption is that this is a requirement of the api used to develop the bots.

    Many people from my organization are used to IRC/Slack style bots where an explicit @mention isn't required for bots to parse a message and respond.

    Sometimes there is fun functionality that can be added for a lot of bots and having to @mention a bot really detracts from the user experience of some bots.

    I can also see this getting out of hand when using a lot of bots, so…
