  1. Support for Private Channels

    Looking for the ability to create a channel that only channel members can see. Private channels are available in slack. There is an admin for private channels who is the creator, and they are the ones who add/remove users.

    Five types of public/privacy that is being asked for by users:

    - Public-Open (visible anywhere including outside the org and anyone can join)
    - Public-Invitation (visible anywhere including outside the org, must be invited)
    - Company-Open (only visible inside the org and anyone in the org can join; outside the org must be invited)
    - Company-Invitation (only visible inside the org,…

    • 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’m so happy to share an update with you! The feature team has let me know that they are working hard at this and are aiming for a spring time release.

        Please comment below if you might be interested in testing or TAP, and include the industry, company size, and location of your org. We would likely want to hit a very wide range of demographics.

        Thanks,

      • I want to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time

        LOG INTO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
        Original user posted:
        I would like to heave this multi-team/tenant option within “MS Teams”, like in Slack. Currently I’m in four different organization. They’re using all office365, three of them now changed from Slack to Teams. I’ve to permanently login/logout to switch to the related MS Team. This is really time consuming.

        Another user says:
        We need the ability to sign in with multiple accounts. Many of us have several O365 accounts for various reasons (consulting, etc), and we’d need to be able to access teams directly.
        This is not a federation or B2B scenario, but…

          • Move channels into other teams

            We would like to move a project (channel) between groups to keep the information, or be able to sort channels to our liking.

            • Teams uses 600MB and is super slow!

              Quotes from various users about memory usage and slow performance:

              "Team is a memory hog! 100s MB! Slack is about 50."

              "The memory consumption is over 300MB!!! This should be a priority."

              "Just started evaluating teams, 500+ MB and 10-15% CPU. This is in a citrix VDI. Does teams use hardware rendering? If so is there a way to turn it off? I had to do this with the rest of Office."

              "I dont understand why my Teams application only uses 70MB when other people in my organization are towards half a gig! What is causing this Teams?"

                The feature is still being worked upon. Many different changes are going into Teams and will provide a slow but steady pace to our performance increases.

                I don’t have any new details at the moment but hope to get some additional feedback in the next several weeks.

                    It has been three months since the last update, so checking in here to let you know this is still being actively worked on. I really appreciate your patience as we work on this.

                  • Integrate fully with Planner, Sharepoint, and Outlook Tasks, Calendar

                    Please integrate more with Planner (hopefully soon with Kanban and timeline visualisation channels for tasks) and/or with sharepoint web parts that do this, so all tasks linked in one place. And Outlook as well (for calendar and emails pertinent to chats and tasks). Until then in effect Teams is yet just another tool to use that is not completely integrated for communication + coordination.

                      • 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.

                                  Guys, please add pinned items for channels. We often pin important articles/messages/files so that the whole team can see it. Very important!

                                    This request is still in the works. And it appears most people are interested in the ability to pin multiple items. I’ll circle back to the feature team and give them your additional feedback.

                                  • Integrate tasks in planner with Outlook Tasks & Calendar

                                    Every time you create a task in planner via Microsoft Teams and assign it to someone in your organisation/team it would be nice to see that task in outlook as well. I want to know and to be alerted that I have a task assigned to me without having to lon on to Microsoft Teams.
                                    It would be great to have a place to see how many tasks have been created in a team/channel and the status of each one.

                                      Please know the team is actively working on this feature.

                                      Mobile working, Asynchronous working of teams is a common phenomena. Read receipts let us know if the message has been seen, so we know it can be acted on. Critical when large numbers of the team are mainly mobile workers.

                                        Notifications built into the OS (which all apps I've seen use other than Outlook and now Teams) are more functional and allow for more user control. Most importantly, they honor Do Not Disturb settings, which is critical.

                                        • Guest access should be implemented at the Channel level

                                          Once I enabled guest access on the tenant I can enable guest access to a team, but I can't give guest access to a single channel. There should be a way to do this as I will now need to create a guest team and an internal team when I share teams with customers.
