  1. Pandora interruption

    When you are listening to Pandora or streaming music services and someone calls you from Microsoft teams you need to make Microsoft teams interrupt Pandora so you can take the call right now there is no interruption the music keeps playing and you can't take the call it just goes to missed call

    • open source connectors code

      With Microsoft buying Github and Open sourcing of many items. Why not open source the Teams Connectors so that the community can help support them and make them better even when they may not get many votes on this site

      • How does the future of MS Teams look like? Is it possible (long-term) that you will stop the free service and make it fee-based?

        We're using the free version of MS Teams and are max 200 ppl. There are rumours in our organization that MS teams will stopp the free-service and make it fee-based only. Any comment from Microsoft on this?

          • hotmail

            I don't like the new hotmail design, look and changes they made. There should always be an option for ppl to decline the upgrade or new thing and add it at a later date IF they wish to!

            I almost lost an email I went to reply to b/c when I clicked to do it like I normally do, it disappeared and I found it in my deleted mail!!

            Why do you show us certain folders multiple times?

            Why is everything in colors and sections? That makes it more confusing. Too busy.

            Give us the option to change it back…

            • Improve error message when importing an existing app in the App Studio

              When importing an existing app and the manifest file is not correct, the error displayed is "Import package failed. Make sure the package is correct.". The error is not very helpful and could be more specific. Is it the manifest file that is incorrect? is the manifest file missing? Are other files missing? Also, what could be a suggested work around? e.g. check the format of the manifest file with the schema checker or similar. Anything is better than "Make sure the package is correct".

              • Create app for Nolt or Feature Upvote

                I want access to a simple, inexpensive upvoting platform like Nolt or Feature Upvote. User Voice is too pricey. I want to crowdsource ideas from my team. it would be best to have this function directly within an MS Teams channel.

                • 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.

                  • How can I use VBA from an Excel spreadsheet to create a new chat in MS Teams?

                    Using VBA in Excel, I can send emails via MS Outlook to specific users. This works fine using VBA constructs like "CreateObject("Outlook.Application"), ".CreateItem(0)" and "created item.Send" for example. Our organisations wishes to embrace MS teams, so I need to be able to do the equivalent, that is cerate an MS teams application and chat instance, then compose the chat and "send" it. Rather than specifying an email address, I think I would specify a chat address of the form "@ user name", but that's as far I can figure out.

                    • Please allow pasting formatted code of any language in a chat.

                      I want to paste a block of javascript, vb, or c#, etc, and have the carriage returns maintained.

                        • Send out a series of auto-emails ref the task exceeded the deadline

                          Repeatedly AUTO-EMAIL assignee to missed tasks (save the task setter having to chase them). Also, automatically keep a tally of these 'chases'. Automatically create a bottleneck type chart to monitor the average responses which can then either be filtered on specific tasks or on specific personnel all to aid process reporting

                          • Streamline MS Teams and Yammer with Office 365 Groups, and with MS Sharepoint Online

                            Hi:

                            I tried to understand the relationship between MS Teams, Yammer, Office 365 Groups and MS Sharepoint Online. It looks like a spaghetti for business users.
                            I started to understand it as I explained it in https://www.intercs.com/ms-office-365 .
                            MS Teams has great features but needs to be streamlined.

                            To streamline it , I would sit together with serious users of MS Office 365 and discuss their needs, and how they use it.
                            One possible use is described in: https://www.intercs.com/ms-sharepoint-online .

                            Sharepoint Online provided a structure of sites and subsites, and sub sub sites. I liked that structure since it was…

                              • BUG: When thread is collapsed, first name is used instead of preferred name

                                Not an idea, but a bugreport. Was sent here by @MicrosoftHelps.

                                Copying the text:
                                Hey @MicrosoftHelps, a transgender friend just got outed at her work through @MicrosoftTeams because apparently when a thread is collapsed it shows the "real" name instead of preferred name. Couldn't find a place to report bugs, so I'll just ping you here. Please get this fixed.

                                I can’t see it on my side but we are using the desktop app.

                                Every time I get pinged it shows up properly but you close a thread drop down it reverts to first name Instead of preferred…

                                • Support pasting into multi-select combo-boxes

                                  Normal combo-boxes allow pasting values into them. However, Combo-boxes setup to allow multiple selections will not allow pasting a value into them. There are times when the value may be the same for several records in a continuous form. In this case it would be convenient and more efficient to copy once and insert multiple times, rather than to have to select and enter, to complete each entry in these cases.

                                    • Enable users to add content to channel tabs programmatically

                                      I would like the ability to programatically add tabs to existing or new channels. Would like to have access to change the content on tabs at any time.

                                        • Provide ability to reply to a Channel root message using Graph API

                                          Is this support already in the works? If yes, when is it expected to be available?
