  1. Need full capabilities of Planner in Teams

    Right now you can add a new tab for Planner in Teams. However, you are not afforded all the capabilities of Planner in this tab. Its really "Planner Lite." Here are some items you cannot do with Planner in Teams:

    1) If you create a Planner in Teams, it will not be shown in Planner itself!
    2) you can go to the group (in web outlook) wich is automatically created for the team and click there on planner and it will take you to the planner for the new group, which then cannot be displayed at teams, but the team…

      We recently updated the Planner tab to now support grouping cards by Progress, Assignment, Due Date, and Labels like you find in the Planner web app.  (#7 on the list) We also added the ability to quickly filter down cards to what’s most relevant for you and your team.   

      The completed items are now 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, and 8.

      The remaining items (5 & 6) are still actively being worked upon and we hope to have some more update for you soon!

    • slash commands are a must-have

      Slash commands for just about every type of function are a must have. They are familiar and easy to use without having to touch your mouse, they are UI-agnostic. Admittedly not terribly discoverable – but the UI is even worse, as their is no real option for auto-completion of UI elements, now is there?

        Hi everyone,

        Thank you all for the feedback. I want to acknowledge that we understand this is not what you were expecting and we are working hard to innovate and create an awesome experience for you.

        We have some big plans for how slash commands will be used in the near future. This does include being able to use them from your chat bar, though I cannot give further details. I have seen the prototype, and as an avid slash command user myself, I can honestly say that I’m extremely excited to see where it is going with Teams. It will take some time to get it right, but when it is ready I honestly feel you will be very impressed with the final feature!

      • Read Only channel

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

        • 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

            • Add option to make emoticons smaller or be turned off

              Would like the ability to turn off all emoticons. Every chat application I've ever used (Skype, Lync, Slack, Hipchat) allow this option. Or/and make the emoticons smaller.

              It would also be nice to have the option to minimize an emoji or resize an emoji within the chat feed once a user has posted it. Currently ‘edit’ or ‘delete’ is available per message, possiblly if ‘minimize’ or ‘collapse’ option would make this possible? This would enable the viewer of the feed to create their own visual experience/not have to look at emoji if they don’t want to.

                The emoji size was reduced by close to 50% from the original size. So this part of the request is considered complete.

                The option to Turn Off Emojis is still being worked upon. Though no timeline is available at the moment.

                As for the concern about it still sending emojis – when the feature is ready it will stop the creation of emojis both at the sender and recipient. Also, you can currently hit CRTL-Z when an emoji starts to pop up to switch it back to text and it should remain text to the users you send the message to.

              • Mute a channel - (Mute Chat is complete)

                I'd love to keep groups/channels in my list, but mute a channel so I don't get those. I get notified whenever some tags a channel eg @General, it's super distracting!

                Also would like the possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received for a user that chooses to mute some group chat.

                  Hi everyone,

                  We have released the ability to Mute Chat to the public ring!

                  I will flag this as “Partially Done” since we are still working on the ability to Mute a Channel.

                  I will also adjust the topic title to denote that this item will now track the work towards Mute a Channel.

                  Thank you for you suggestions and feedback!

                • Support Skype Video Call

                  Most of the DEVs / Tech use the Teams, but we have a lot of users outside of technology that use only Skype. If Teams can video chat with Skype users, that would be fantastic as it would then require me to have less apps (i.e. Only Teams installed would be preferred)
