  1. Increase the speed of the app

    Sending photos, videos or files should be faster... like other messenger app. It takes almost 1 min to add, click on the size you want, download, and send. Please help to improve this.

      • 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.

        • API for Teams custom status messages

          Teams custom status message just rolled to clients. Is there a way to update the status via Graph (or other ) API, calling the client / updating a file or any other non manual way currently / nearby?

          It would open up interesting possibilities to update statuses (off duty, on duty for example).

          • "Follow" Specific Users

            Would be great to select specific users to "follow" like Twitter. Or even something like a setting where I only get updates from users in my "favorites" contacts list. Most of the time I dont need updates from all these channels, I'd rather select specific people or a smaller group to get updates from when they post content. Thanks!

            • 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)

              • Forward calls

                Add Call Forwarding ("Redirect Call") Options to "Auto Attendant" (both working hours and after hours) and "Call Queues".

                We use an outside phone receptionist service to answer all our calls.

                This feature change will be helpful for businesses who want to forward to their mobile phone or an after-hours support service desk.

                • 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.

                  • 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

                    • 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.

                      • Teams Add App Graph API

                        I tested new Add App API, we like it and that's what we were waiting for. However, this API can be further improved by providing the 'id' already mentioned in app manifest file.

                        Currently in order to run this API, it requires app id which is generated by Teams Platform when the app is uploaded.

                        We have developed our own teams Tab App which we want to upload to the teams private store and we want to install this app to the desired tab dynamically. This API serves our partial purpose, we still need to get the id from teams…

                          • 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.

                              • Allow setting creation and modification time when creating chat messages

                                We need to set creation and modification times of chat messages in a migration scenario where messages from another system must be migrated to Teams.

                                This is currently not possible as the fields are marked as read-only. (see here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/chatmessage?view=graph-rest-beta)

                                  • 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.

                                      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 Attachment To Chat Thread in API

                                          Right now, we can create a message in Teams through the API. We can also upload a file through sharepoint and search for it in teams. What would be nice, is to be able to add an attachment to a Teams Chat Thread so the attachment would be inline on teams and look as if we uploaded it through the desktop client.
