  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…

      The Planner team has updated the Planner tab to include the Schedule and Charts views. Drag and drop tasks to schedule them and check status with the charts view, all within the Planner tab.

      The completed items are now 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, and 8.

      The remaining item #5 is still actively being worked on, and we hope to have an update for you soon.

      As a bonus #9, we also expect to roll out Guest Access Support very soon.

      I’ll keep you posted as more things develop!

    • 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!

      • 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 zoom feature has released to the public ring. Using CRTL + or CTRL – zoom in and out on a Windows PC. This functionality is also available on the Mac. The item tracking this specific update can be found at: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/admin/v3/suggestions/16933183/activity

            Currently there isn’t an UI element that tells you your current zoom level but that, along with Settings within the UI to preset your zoom preference, will be coming a bit later.

            Since the zoom feature could very well cover the vast majority of user needs, based on the majority of comments and feedback, I will flag this item as Partially Done.

            Thank you for all the feedback and support!

            • 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.

              • Scalable UI (zoom feature)

                It would be great to have the Teams desktop app UI to be manually scalable. The default scaling should be set based on the system settings for scaling, but the UI should be scalable independent of this.

                (should I mention Slack allows zoom in/out with Ctrl+ + and Ctrl+- key combinations and Ctrl+0 restores default setting)

                I find the desktop UI too small for my eyes. I do have scaling enabled on my Windows computer, and other apps and programs work well, but the Teams client bothers me being too small.

                • Channel Limit (Increase beyond 200 limit)

                  We have run into a situation on a team, let's call it "Vendors" where we post data on vendors that we use. We set up a channel for each vendor but have "reached the limit" on the number of channels in a team. Is this something that can be controlled through an admin panel or is there another way to increase/remove the limit.

                    I apologize for the long silence. The channel limit of 100 has been increased to 200 channels.

                    That being said, deleted channels apply to this limit. The feature team is working on this.

                    What will happen is in the near future a retention limit will be set so you can still go back and reinstate a channel you had deleted. Once the retention period has expired then the channel will get a hard delete which will free up the space and no longer count toward the 200 channel limit.

                    I’ll make sure to get more consistent updates on this topic for you!
