  1. Multi-window for chats and more

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

    Multi-window chat is in testing. I hope to have great news regarding rollout to the public rings soon.

    We are working to ensure that multi-window and other future multi-window experiences are of the highest quality when they release.

    Thanks!

  2. 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.

    We are working on the release of the Tasks application in Microsoft Teams that will aggregate data from Microsoft To-Do, Planner and Outlook with more capabilities on the way. You can see Planner data in Kanban views today, and the Tasks app will continue to support that view. In January we announced task publishing which will release with the new app. Get an overview at https://youtu.be/rTATVGroEsQ.

    As the last status states, we have been testing for several months.  Although many people have asked for this feature, we received a similar amount of feedback from other users that they prefer the Teams notifications and don’t want them changed.  We are currently testing a feature for users to choose between Teams notifications & Windows notifications.

    We will update you as work progresses.

  4. Improve audio notifications

    VOLUME: The sound is too low!! Most people don't think it's even on. Let us customize the sound level, please.

    UNIQUE SOUNDS FOR CALLS VS CHATS/MESSAGES: Right now sounds are all or nothing. This is not good. For example, you may want to have sound for Calls but not for chat or messages. There is a difference when you need to hear that someone is calling you – versus getting the constant bing/bing/bing on message chat.

    UNIQUE SOUND FOR PRIVATE CHAT: It would be nice to have different sounds for private chat and notifications, so that its easy to know…

  5. Add a "Raise Your Hand" feature in meetings

    When in a meeting with multiple people it would be nice to have a way to signal that you would like to speak so that you can be called upon by the meeting organizer.

    This would allow users to show they have something to say, but they do not want to interrupt

    Thank you for your feedback – the increase in votes recently has been noticed. We have begun testing this feature internally and hope to begin rolling out to the public in the next several weeks.

    Thanks!

  6. Notification for Planner Tasks

    Planner and Teams just needs a notification - when a task has been created for an assigned user that user should receive a notification - currently we are doing a work around by starting a conversation with a mention of a member name
    thanks

    The team is happy to announce that this functionality is now available through the Presence Graph API which is now in public Beta! We have additional functionality planned for the API so please keep checking back for updates.

    Please note that this is a beta version of the API and may be subject to change. Use of these APIs in production applications is not supported.

    - Online documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/presence?view=graph-rest-beta

    Enjoy!

  8. Tag for status updates

    Skype for Business supports tagging for status updates. It's a really buried feature, but one that is really helpful when trying to get in touch with someone. Would love to make this more easily available in Microsoft Teams to be better able to catch people as they become available (e.g. know when they come in in the morning, when they finish their current meeting, etc.).

    Even in live events, the Include System audio feature should be implemented when sharing windows.
