  1. Linux client

    My team has some users on Linux, and one benefit Slack has is a Linux client. Without a Linux client on Microsoft Teams, some orgs may have to turn away in favor of Slack so everyone can participate without keeping a browser open all the time.

    • 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…

      • Ability to archive channels

        Would be nice if we had the ability to archive channels. For example: we created a channel for a specific project. Once the project is complete, we can archive that channel or at least move it out of the primary view. I could see the channel list getting large and clunky quickly with multiple projects many of which are complete.

        Also, when a conversation in the channel is complete it should be archived or hidden.

          Unfortunately due to re-prioritization this item has slipped back onto the “backlog” for the time being.

          I hope to see it move back into “working on it” soon and will continue to engage the feature team with your feedback.

        • 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.

            • 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…

                • Read Only channel

                  Would like to create a Public/announcements Read Only channel so that only specified members can post. This allows for authorized personnel to make company announcements, but not everyone can post.

                  (The request for a Public Announcement channel is complete, since the General channel can be controlled by admins and set to read only)

                    Due to a priority shift this request has slipped to the backlog. I hate to bring bad news. I will continue to provide the feature team your feedback and votes.
                    Hopefully this will move back up in the queue soon.

                  • More status options, custom status, and Out of Office

                    MORE STATUS
                    I like the status options in S4B, and so does my boss. It will be important to my boss before accepting the use of MS Teams widely to have a broader range of statuses. Missing statuses are:
                    * In a meeting
                    * In a conference call
                    * In a call
                    * Presenting
                    * Be right back
                    * Off Work

                    Particularly of importance are "Be right back" and "off work". "Do not disturb" is probably sufficient for "in a meeting", "in a call" and "presenting". But, it sure is nice that S4B auto-detects those three statuses (for the most…

                    • Use same date and time format as in my computer's settings

                      Many people like to use English as their display language, but get confused with the US date format: 11/06 is October 6 in the US, but June 11 in many other countries. Why not display the date according to the setting in Windows?

                      Same goes for time, of course, where many use 24 hour format instead of am and pm.

                      • Team Templates

                        A team template!! Much like sharepoint document site or site templates that contain a specific layout and set of documents this would be amazing for a team template. We could deploy a team for each project we had that had a preset assignment of planner tasks and documents attached to it and a preset of channels that goes with that team. Could really make a big difference in the way we deploy and use teams.

                        • Add other Sharepoint document folders under Files

                          Please allow adding granular SharePoint document library subfolders to the Files tab. Currently, only the document library level can be added, not sub folders.

                          This allows adding content from related but separate SharePoint sites without having to provide the entire document library (which may contain irrelevant content to the Team)

                              When granting access a Security group or Distribution list to a Team. Changes to the security groups/DL does not apply. If a user leaves the company or if we have new users, it is a manual process to add or remove them from a Team. Since we can select a Security group or Distribution list, changes to either should be reflected on the Team members.

                              • Change which Tab is default landing page for a Team and/or Channel

                                Right now the conversation tab is the default landing page for a Team and/or Channel.
                                I want to be able to have a SharePoint site landing page in a tab and that tab be the default tab open when you navigate to a team or channel.

                                Think of it like a landing page for that team. You may not want it to drop right into Conversations. If you can have a SharePoint page with a Microsoft Teams conversations web part, you get the best of both worlds.
                                I can see a lot of scenarios where you'd want the chat window…

                                • Using Teams Offline

                                  MULTIPLE USERS reporting offline needs:

                                  ---

                                  Generally want to use Teams offline:

                                  If I am offline it would be great to browse through Teams and Channels in case I have to lookup some informations.

                                  Also viewing the latest notes in "Notes" on teams would be great.

                                  It would be enough to have "Read only" - for the moment my Teams app does not even open when I am offline

                                  Compared on my mobile - I can read all posts while I am offline.

                                  • Show video for all people in Video meeting

                                    Currently when in a video chat it only shows the active video for the last 4 people that have spoken in the chat. On the bottom bar it shows icons for all those in the chat. If it could show small video for all those in the chat that have their cameras turned on it would be beneficial. Then everyone on the video conference can see the reactions of others, whether they were the last to speak or not.

                                    This is a problem with most video chatting applications. Google Hangouts it the only one we have found that shows video…

                                      • @Tag without selection

                                        Current when @Tagging someone you have to type @PartOfTheirName then wait for the dialog to pop up, then hit tab or enter click the desired name (Person, Channel, Team). If you fail to use the dialog the @Tag fails to work even if you match the name perfectly.

                                        What we'd like to see is typing @Name or @ChannelName or @TeamName just works even without using the dialog.
