  1. Include Office 365 group calendar in teams

    It would be good to be able to click on a calendar button on the left hand side to get a view of the Office 365 groups calendar as you would in the calendar app. Good for being able to look and get a glimpse of what is coming up with the group. At the moment I have to go back to the calendar to look at it.

      This is still under review.
      As Suphatra mentioned, a lot of things will need to come together as this is a complex piece.

      I hope to have further details to share, but a this time it is still being investigated.

    • Access to email from left tab panel

      If there was an Outlook tab integrated on the left, similar to the Meetings tab (which is effectively the Outlook calendar), one could stay in Teams all day and not have to switch out.

      • Make "Teams" and "Chat" the same Tab

        There is no reason that Teams and Chat should be different top level categories in the left navigation. They are the same thing, perform exactly the same function, and making two different items simply confuses the navigation and makes badge notifications and discoverability much more difficult to use.

        Please combine Chats into the Teams tab so that you can browse all conversations in one place rather than needing to navigate to different tabs to see different conversations.

        Chats and channels perform essentially the same function, which is talk to some people and collaborate. Forcing the user to check two different…

        • Unread message count on Chat, Teams, channels

          Right now there is a unread message count badge on the Activity tab icon (I guess you only get that if you have followed any channels?). However I would much rather prefer if the badge was on the Chat and Teams tab icons so I can see where there is activity. Currently collapsed teams are also indicated having activity. Expanded teams should have the same indication.

          Furthermore, the unread activity badge on both the Activity and the application icon count unread channels. I would prefer a message count.

          • Importing from Slack, Hipchat, Flowdock, Basecamp, etc.

            Hi,
            We are using Slack for a long time and now we are thinking to transition to MS Teams. In Slack it is possible to export all channel content's in JSON with links to files uploaded to slack.
            It could be very useful to have the ability to import the slack history into MS teams.

            • Sound is too low and other sound problems

              VOLUME:

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

              CUSTOMIZE SOUNDS:

              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.
              In addition – on commercial skype you could actually set sound notification channel or chat by channel or chat. Some things you want the bing – others it…

              • Delete Private Chat threads

                This request is for the ability to completely delete a private chat thread. (Not hide/archive.)

                Again, this was pulled out into its own topic because it is still under review and no decision has been made.

                To recap what has already been completed from the other topic:

                1. Delete your own messages anywhere in Teams.
                2. Team Owners can choose if users can edit/delete in their tenant as well as choose if admins have the power to delete any message posted in public channels.
                3. The ability to hide your private chat threads (these are not the chat threads in…

                    I’ve brought your concerns to the Feature Team. Deleting of the General channel will not be an option.

                    However, renaming of the General channel is now under review! I have updated the title to reflect the corrected ask.

                    Keep up the feedback! Your voices make a big difference.

                  • Sort conversations so the latest posts are at the top rather than bottom

                    Messages currently come in with latest content at the bottom of the page. Would be good to be able to re-sort so the conversations with the most recent traffic are at the top. Also, move the "Start a new conversation" to the top so that its clear you're adding a new conversation and not responding to a prior thread (we have a lot of newbies who don't use the "reply" because the compose bar is on the bottom, and thus end up creating a bunch of new threads accidentally).

                    Conversations in Groups starts at the top and forces old ones…

                    • Persistent notification

                      I'm using Mac and one annoying thing is that I'm not getting notified of new messages in team channels (whether I'm mentioned or not) because I missed the banner in the top right of the screen, either from being away from my desk or focusing on my second screen. The red icon is added to the actual application icon in the dock menu when I get a direct chat but there should be something here to indicate that team chats have new messages

                      • Add team wide reminders

                        We have weekly bot reminders currently on Slack and that would be a big advantage to getting our whole team moved over.

                        For example:
                        - Tuesdays at noon: Reminder - team meeting in 30 minutes
                        - Last Friday of month: Finish submitting hours
                        - etc....

                        • Notifications are easily missed

                          The channel/team on which the notification has been made should stay more/better/longer visible so that you won't miss one. Slack is currently much better in that sense.

                            • Allow the central administration of Teams

                              Currently an Admin cannot use the Admin app to centrally administer Groups, Planners and Teams. This creates a number of risks for an organisation: 1) unable to manage ownership; 2) unable to manage storage; 3) unable to manage information life cycles. Just to name a few. From a security and compliance point of view a central admin function is highly recommended.

                              • Show video for all people in Video meeting

                                Currently when in a video chat it only shows the active video for the last 4 people that have spoken in the chat. On the bottom bar it shows icons for all those in the chat. If it could show small video for all those in the chat that have their cameras turned on it would be beneficial. Then everyone on the video conference can see the reactions of others, whether they were the last to speak or not.

                                This is a problem with most video chatting applications. Google Hangouts it the only one we have found that shows video…

                                • Add option to have non-threaded channels

                                  I'd like the capability when I add a new channel to make it non-threaded. Threaded conversations are great for some channel topics, but other more casual channels get too cluttered with multiple threads. I'd prefer to have the flexibility to decide which format I want when I create the channel.

                                    Can Teams chat and activities data be exported, printed, archived, and backed up/restored? Within Sharepoint or elsewhere? This could be necessary for a few reasons both during projects and for historical records.

                                    • Make "Follow this channel" the default setting.

                                      Usual Microsoft lack of UI intuition.
                                      Channels should be followed by default with the user unfollowing it if they wish.

                                      • Add the ability to " Quick Print " a file without having to download or open in sharepoint

                                        I want to have the ability to print a file without having to download it or opening Sharepoint. A "Quick Print" option would be 100% great

                                        • More @mention possibilities

                                          Idea spliting off from this one https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16940059-add-generic-mentions-in-each-channel?tracking_code=1c7742f3e32355a2d76e469ddf0af53e

                                          It would be nice to have more options for @mention as suggested in the above issue with @here for giving notification to everyone present (available status).

                                          There are many other possibilities as well for example the opposite, something like @notHere (so they will not miss the message when the get back) or @onnline /@offline. You could also have @admin / @ owner and later @guests for external users.

                                          Not sure if it's possible already or not but you could allow tagging a different team/channel so everyone that are in both gets a notification.
