  1. 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.

    • 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.

        I know its been a little quiet on UserVoice and in our release notes lately, and I can tell you why. We’re thoroughly going through user feedback to prioritize our work and solve the problems you’re reporting. In this effort, we’re bringing you this feature! Its planned and I’ll update once work is underway.

        Thank you again for contributing your voice, votes and enthusiasm for Teams. We’re listening, even if sometimes we’re quiet. (Oh, I also took a small vacation! :-))

        Sincerely,
        Suphatra

        P.S. I’ll be providing more user updates via our new Teams blog! Check it out here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/bg-p/MicrosoftTeamsBlog

          • Mute or leave a group chat

            Have a possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received fora user that chooses to mute some group chat. Also let me be able to leave it completely if I want to.

            • Allow drag and drop from Outlook directly to Teams

              Dragging and dropping attachments directly from the e-mail window without having to first drag them onto the desktop (for instance) and them from there dragging them to the files tab in Teams would make many lives so much easier.

              There are a few suggestions to enable drag and dropping, but it seems that it is already working, at least with the desktop client, but making that work directly from an e-mail window would be very nice.

              • Need full capabilities of Planner in Teams

                Right now you can add a new tab for Planner in Teams. However, you are not afforded all the capabilities of Planner in this tab. Its really "Planner Lite." Here are some items you cannot do with Planner in Teams:

                1) If you create a Planner in Teams, it will not be shown in Planner itself!
                2) you can go to the group (in web outlook) wich is automatically created for the team and click there on planner and it will take you to the planner for the new group, which then cannot be displayed at teams, but the team…

                  • Allow use of existing OneNotes/documents for channels

                    My team has a pre-existing OneNote. It would be really helpful to be able to create a tab that uses this, rather than being forced to start with a blank notebook.

                                  Hi everyone — this is in planning. Meanwhile, here’s a shortcut (thanks Darrell for pointing it out!):

                                  Just type [text for the link](theurl.com) into the field and it should automatically turn it into a hyperlink.

                                  That’s a work-around for now. I’ll let you know when a more permanent option gets underway.

                                • slash commands are a must-have

                                  Slash commands for just about every type of function are a must have. They are familiar and easy to use without having to touch your mouse, they are UI-agnostic. Admittedly not terribly discoverable – but the UI is even worse, as their is no real option for auto-completion of UI elements, now is there?

                                      • Add quiet hours to notifications

                                        I like having notifications on my mobile device, but would like the option to silence notifications for after hours and weekends. Potentially, selectively per channel/team.

                                        • See all planner tasks assigned to me

                                          It would be nice if all planner tasks assigned to me were aggregated somewhere, instead of requiring me to go into each individual team and then each individual channel to find out what I'm responsible for. To-dos could get lost in the shuffle very easily that way.
