  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.

      So it turns out there are some several external dependencies that are hindering our plans for this feature. We are pulling it back into review so we can determine feasibility. Here’s to hoping we find a way to bring this to you — right now its very difficult. We are not taking this off the table though; we know this is an important feature, so we’re tracking the external dependencies to see where they land.

      Thanks,

    • Create Team from existing SharePoint site, and other requests

      #1 User Request on SharePoint:
      Enable integration of Microsoft Teams to an existing SharePoint site rather than to always create a new site collection

      There have been a few ideas raised on integrating lists, OneNote, document libraries, etc. from an existing SharePoint site with Microsoft Teams, but in summary, it will be best if we could create a team upon on existing site, so that the "Files" and "Notes" tabs would directly reference the existing document library and OneNote in SharePoint. It does not make sense to have two separate sites: one for all the usual SharePoint stuff, and another…

        So, I have got an update for you.

        We have pulled this out of “planned” and backwards to “under review” because the SharePoint team is working on a feature to allow you to convert an existing SharePoint site into a Modern Group. And as you likely already know, once it is a Modern Group, it can be easily converted into a team in Teams.

        I’m trying to get a status update from the SharePoint team on this feature — once I have it, I’ll let you know.

        Thanks for your patience and hope everyone is enjoying their August.

        Sincerely,
        Suphatra

      • Please enable share control in video meeting

        We used to be able to share control in video meeting so we can do remote support.

        Please include this feature in the future releases.

        Thanks,
        Jason

        • 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…

            Hi folks, its been a while since I updated this popular request, so wanted to give you an update.

            We’re making some overall changes to the UI/UX so we’ll approve your clicking and flow for sure. As for making “Teams” and “Chat” the same tab, that is not likely to come with this first shipment of design changes. However, it is NOT off the table.

            Thanks as always for your feedback, patience, and your help in making Teams better and better.

            Sincerely,
            Suphatra

            • 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.

              • Teams needs a REAL Calendar!

                Would love to have a Calendar to allow those in the same team to view each other's availability and whereabouts. Would make it a lot easier to create appointments/meetings.

                The calendar could be a tab in a channel (so then you could have multiple calendars in one team) or could be an icon on the left app bar, instead of "Meetings" which is helpful to no one.

                Could also be helpful to add a way for us to add a SharePoint Team calendar.

                    Hi everyone! Many of you had emailed me when we rolled out “show user actively typing” in the chat area, that you’d like this in the channels area too. I’ve merged the tickets together to help you build support for this idea, and I’ve also sent it into engineering for a review.

                    Keep submitting your thoughts on this item and encouraging others to vote. Its a great idea.

                          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

                                Hi everyone, thank you for this feedback!

                                The engineering team that develops the left rail is considering this feature request. They are in data gathering mode and they came to me seeing if you might be interesting in providing some feedback on the left rail for your Teams client.

                                Particularly, they are interested in seeing screenshots of your left rail to see how you’re using it, as well as your own observations about how you’re using it and any limitations/opportunities you see with the left rail.

                                If you send a screenshot, please also include this info:

                                1. Number of employees at your company
                                2. Number of teams that you are actively participating in
                                3. Number of channels that you actively monitor
                                4. Largest team or channel that you think you need
                                5. Your #1 top feature request for teams and channels

                                Just send this info to me via email at…

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

                                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…

                                  I was surprised that conversations within Teams doesn't show up inside the conversation thread in Outlook Groups. Please consider at least connecting the "General" channel with the Outlook Conversation.

                                  • Make it possible to remove and/or rename the default tabs (files & notes)

                                    It would be really great if we would be able to remove / rename the default tabs. A lot of times files / notes are too generic names for the tabs, so renaming would be really helpful then. :-)

                                        Hi everyone — can you add more details as to exactly what you want for the time stamp on meetings? Do you mean that you want to know when someone created the meeting, and when other people accepted the meeting invite? Where would you want that information to populate — or where do you expect that it would?

                                        Thanks for the info, and your patience while we review this!

                                        Sincerely,
                                        Suphatra

                                        Allow users to set pictures / display pictures to represent group chats so it is easier to differentiate them

                                          I love this idea! I sent it to design.

                                          Meanwhile — please edit the name of your small private group chat by clicking the little pencil icon next to the list of names on the top of the window. That will open up a text field and you can name the chat accordingly.

                                          Hello,

                                          We have been testing Microsoft Teams for almost a week now, while we love the product; however, it is proving to be counter productive when it stops sending notifications, we are using alternative means to notify each other to check messages on MS Teams.

                                          What we noticed for example is that if discussions continue in a thread for over a day, no new notifications whatsoever are being triggered. In some occasions, even though we have an ongoing discussion, notifications stop, but only work if you tag the other person, but again, this is not a new thread, so it…
