  1. 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.

          • Skype integration (Consumer Federation)

            It would be nice to integrate public Skype (not Skype for Business) into Teams. I am able to chat with Skype for business users within my organization but when working with external clients I still have to go back to public Skype. If I could even just simply chat and call with Skype users as well that would allow me to use Teams as my sole communication platform.

            • 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…

              • 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.

                • Backup, export, printing, archive options

                  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.

                  • 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....

                    • 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.

                                    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

                                      As I create more and more teams, I need to be able to group or categorize them. It seems like the only native groupings are "favorites" or "more". I would like to be able to create other categories. Once I get over 30 teams, grouping them into detailed categories is going to be imperative to stay organized.

                                        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.

                                        • 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.
