    • 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…

          This is still on the backlog. This is taking a lot of effort to dig into and determine the best solution.

          No additional updates to share at the moment but I’m tracking the feature teams work closely and will keep you posted!

        • 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.

          • 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…

            • 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.

                        • 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…

                            This item has moved to the backlog due to a priority shift.

                            However “Out of Office” messages are available but currently need to be set in Outlook which then will show up in Teams as well.

                            I’ll post more updates as I get more feedback from the feature team.

                                  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.

                                    This item is still on the backlog.

                                    No additional details to provide, but the team does understand this is a big need from the community.

                                    I’m working on getting more information and possibly an ETA. I’ll keep you posted.

                                    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.

                                      • More than 20 participants in a chat

                                        We would like to use group chats for conversations that are not team/work related. However, the 20 participant limit keeps us from using the feature to it's full extent. Please increase the participant limit for group chats from 20 to 100.

                                          Due to shifts in priority this has slipped onto the backlog.

                                          The recommendation at this time is to use channels for conversations larger than 20 people.

                                          I will continue to monitor the course of this feature request and keep you posted as things develop.

                                        • 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)
