  1. EML file reader for reading emailed conversations to a channel

    Related to the recent "Forward an email to a channel".
    The full email is attached as an EML file. But it needs to be downloaded to read.
    Please build an EML file reader into the application and browser experience. It will be valuable to read the full email without downloading.

  2. Enable threading of Connector updates such as Webhooks

    We've just finished building a webhook connector that will be giving us work item updates from our on-prem TFS. This is very exciting, however, every update comes in as a new thread. This is less exciting. We need the ability for, once a work item exists in a thread in the chat, for all work item updates pertaining to that work item to be threaded under that initial message. Otherwise, chaos. Perhaps the ability to arbitrarily define and ID for each webhook message, and when the same ID is re-used, it becones threaded?

  3. Support @ notifications in messages posted through web hook API

    We have automated messages posted to a channel and the @notifications are considered normal text and no actual notification happen. Since no one is notified of messages in channels to begin with (waiting for https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public-preview/suggestions/16911520-notifications-for-all-messages-in-a-channel to be implemented), we'd at least need notifications to work.

  4. checklist planner

    Planner Checklist item additions:

    1) Provide the ability to assign one or more people to Planner checklist items within a card.
    (The card itself has assigned people but each Planner checklist item should also have assigned people.)

    2) Provide the ability to assign due dates to Planner Checklist items within a card.
    (The card itself has a due date but each Planner checklist item should also have their own due dates)

  5. Allow a single user to join a Team meeting on multiple devices simultaneously

    In Skype for Business, I am able to accept an Audio invitation on the phone app while accepting the Video/Screen sharing invitation from my PC simultaneously. It would be very helpful if I could do that from within Teams as well since I keep my earbuds connected to my phone but my laptop screen makes it much easier to view shared content.

  6. Multi-company groups

    I really like Microsoft Teams, but i think it could be better working with people from any company using this app.

  8. Full API to write/receive messages so we can create new clients or integrate it into other tools

    Slack has a full API, so people can write their own client apps or integrate Slack messaging into existing apps. Would be great to have something similar. Especially combined with giving external users access to Teams.

  9. Schedule posts/announcements.

    As a teacher, I would love to be able to schedule a post/announcement in Teams! This would be an amazing feature, especially in the current climate.

  10. Powerpoint in Teams needs to have an 'import slides' option. This will help with collaboration.

    I find it difficult to collaborate using the Teams Powerpoint in app. Since the powerpoint in teams doesn't have the extended capabilities regular PowerPoint does, it is difficult to format. When multiple people are working and collaborating within the PowerPoint document in teams I'd like to be able to import and merge slides built outside of the teams app.

  11. AD / O365 Group integration

    Make teams groups able to use AD / o365 groups so dynamic team membership can be driven by groups.
    When adding a member to a team you can add a group but this just pulls the current member of the group. Making teams read the group membership to determine membership on a scheduled basis would be very helpful for teams that change regularly and are based on AD groups.

  12. Permalink

    I want to be able to point someone to a message in Teams via a URL (aka a permalink). This would be particularly useful when used from outside Teams (e.g. From a wiki, or from an email, etc) but would have use within Teams too. We currently use MatterMost (an on-premises Slack clone) and sharing permalinks to messages is something that people do often.

    As far as I'm aware there's no way to get a permalink to a message from within the Teams desktop app, my request is that you make this possible. Thanks.

  14. API's for call handling

    When will a complete set of API's be available to develop telephony related apps? The Voice and Video API's are sorely lacking any meaningful capabilities. Even simple things like answer, transfer, hang up, presence etc are not available.

    Customers and Partners are clamoring for us to bring our solution to the Teams platform but, with no useful API's, we're unable to develop our solutions.

  15. Our app developers want to be able to type code directly and retain formatting. This is supported in Slack/Hip Chat.

    Our app developers want to be able to type code directly and retain formatting. This is supported in Slack/Hip Chat. This is very desirable for our DEV community.

  16. Microsoft Teams Room system default volume setting

    Hello

    We need the ability to set default volume level in settings of MTR.

    In some rooms where MTR is used with external audio equipment, the default level of 50% is too loud and needs to be lower.

  18. Show URL previews for messages from Connectors

    When I post a URL as a user, Teams automatically expands the message to include a URL preview. When a webhook posts the same thing, the URL remains plain text.

    The webhook should be able to opt in to the same "unfurling" treatment that the user's message received.

  20. Create one client for both Yammer, Teams, Skype and Skype for business

    In our company we are using skype for business, teams, yammer as well as other communication tools. I would love to see one client where I can monitor and participate in all different channels. I have seen 3'd party tools for this that support slack, Skype, instagram and others.

    Having a client that brought all the different communication channels together for the O365 would be great. I think it could be done without taking away each channels advantage. I have seen that Yammer for example evaluates using skype for chat instead of yammer chat. Each service has it own set…
