      • vs code integration

        Integration with VS Code would be a huge help! Being able to send code snippets directly from VS Code into Teams, and being able to have Teams discussion appear in VS Code so you can chat and edit in real time.

        • give feedback on implemented ideas

          Not sure I selected the right category.

          When an idea gets closed because it got implemented, it is not possible to add a comment on it.
          It would be useful to have an option to give feedback on the implementation of the idea.

          A good idea with a bad implementation can get adjusted/fixed this way.

          • Add API call to reply to a thread

            This would be really useful to allow us to integrate Teams more effectively with our internal applications and use it as a flexible conversations platform.

            • Recover deleted teams

              Give users the ability to recover a deleted team within say 14 days. This will help team owners to recover their team without requesting the O365 admin to recover their team within the soft delete period of 30 days. Some of our users delete teams accidentally due to similar names and then want to recover the deleted team.

              • add connector to a channel via api

                We would like the ability to add a connector to a channel programmatically, to enable team notification scenarios without needing to create an incoming webhook manually for each channel.

                • Test Mock Library or Recommended way to e2e test a Teams app.

                  End to End/Integration testing is a bit of a pain with automated testing tools:
                  a developer has to deal with authentication into Teams, clicking the correct team/channel,
                  finding the proper iFrame for your app, and then dealing with authentication within Teams.

                  Much of this is ends up testing Microsoft Teams itself rather than a developer's specific application.

                  To try to mitigate this problem, I've been creating larger and larger mocks of the Teams
                  js library so I can test the app outside of Teams' environment. This way, I can have Teams' context return data
                  I need, simulate theme changes, etc...…

                  • API

                    According your release notes, future Teams API versions will add support for reading existing chat threads in a channel. Wondering about the expected timing of those API features? I'd like to explore ways to trend the number of conversations Teams are engaging in.

                      • Please add this feature to Windows: right clicking on a file and copying the link to that file.

                        Just need an easier way to getting the link to a certain file in Windows. I'm thinking maybe you can add "Copy link" once you right click a file.

                        • Add permanently visible scrollbars and menu or scrollbar

                          Give at least the option to have the scrollbars permanently visible as usual in the Windows environment. And add either menus or toolbar for the commands. Moreover give the option to hide the search bar on top. It's very unconfortable because every time you want to move the window you have to drag on one side and not in the centre of the header of the window.

                          • Replace Chat for email (outlook in teams), move chat to a separate layout, more professional

                            Chat will be more accessible if we can move it out of teams and use the chat pane button to access email

                              • Building a Connector

                                Hello,
                                We have a web app and we want to integrate Microsoft Teams with it, as this was requested by some of our users.

                                The integration should be able to send alerts from our web app to a channel in the Microsoft Teams app, chosen by the user. The alerts are events that take place in our app, in the account of the user.
                                After the integration is made, we expect to receive a token or a personalized URL for the channel the user chose, which we would save in the user's account and use to send messages/alerts.
                                We've created…

                                  Not sure I selected the right category.

                                  I think it would be useful to also add the option to downvote an idea.

                                  Ideas/feature with e.g. 100 votes can get implemented while maybe 1000 people don't like the idea or feature to be added.

                                  Having a downvote option as well may indicate this and prevent unwanted features to be implemented.

                                  • Can you please allow to remove all banners/borders/file name ect. the amount of screen real estate is quite limited.

                                    Remove all unnecessary boarders, or allow them to be minimized, to maximize the available work area on the screen.

                                    see attached file for amount of screen real estate wasted in the browser window.

                                    • Submitting group assignment by students

                                      In our school, we value very much, group collaboration for complex assignment, and we would LOVE, if groups of students could be able to submit their assignments as a group instead as individuals.

                                      • Add more themes

                                        Please add more themes rather then just high contrast, dark and white. The high contrast one is horrible, dark is great but wish there were more colors than just purple

                                        • API post to mark an item as read on behalf of a user

                                          We're looking at custom integrations for Teams and this would help us seamlessly integrate Teams into other user experiences and vice versa.
