  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 request is still being worked upon by the feature team, but I don’t have any additional details to share at this time.
      I do know there is a lot of work going into this and I hope to have some projected timelines soon.

      • 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?"

            "Make it…

              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.

            • Multi-window for chats and more

              I want to have separate top-level windows for each person I'm chatting with, rather than tabs.

              • 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.

                      Still being worked upon but it looks like we are getting closed to the finish line. I hoping to switch this item to “testing” in the following weeks. :)

                        While we work on our Whiteboard you can also try the third party whiteboard app Freehand by Invision that can be found by clicking the Store icon from within Teams and go to the app gallery.

                        • Rename of Team Channel doesn't rename associated Sharepoint files Folder

                          When renaming a Team Channel, the associated Sharepoint folder continues with it's previous name. This could lead to confusion.

                            • 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.

                                    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.

                                      We are after reporting capabilities to capture granular detail on activity within Teams.

                                      We would like to have data capturing:
                                      1. Number of users enabled
                                      2. Number of daily active unique users
                                      3. Breakdown of devices uniquely used
                                      4. Number of teams created
                                      5. Number of teams deleted
                                      6. How many instant messages sent overall in the Chat
                                      7. How many calls made in Teams
                                      8. Number of files shared in channels
                                      9. How many combined ‘likes’ have been made over a period of time

                                        For this item, we’re making great progress. It has now entered TAP validation with a small group of tenants. Will let you know how that goes!

                                      • 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.

                                          Hi,

                                          This idea is not new. Currently we have a lot of unnecessary notifications and i believe we need flexible options to either get rid of them or setup banner/alert. And we already got "Follow channel" option in the latest update:

                                          I think we should go forward and improve conversation/thread notifications.It's very annoying when you replied to the conversation and then it becomes spamming. You have no option to unfollow this conversation and keep receiving notifications. From the other hand, there are conversations where you either not mentioned directly by @ tag or not replied yet but want to…
