  1. Would like the ability to create a reminder or task from a message

    In Slack there is an ability to click message options and set a reminder to take action on that message at some later date, e.g., remind me about this tomorrow or in 1 hour, etc. I think they use their "slackbot /" commands to create this reminder. In Teams, it would be nice to have this ability or to create a task to take action on a message at some later time. Thanks!

      I really like the suggestion of creating an alarm on a message, so you come back to it. I’ve passed this on to our engineering team.

      Meanwhile, here’s another feature you can utilize for the same purpose — use our “bookmark” button, which is in the upper right corner of every message. This will save that message or thread directly to your profile. To access your saved messages, just click your face in the upper left corner of the product. You’ll see a tab in the left rail that says “Saved.” This is like a list of little reminders.

      Hope that helps! :-)

    • Relax browser support check

      The current browser support check is too pessimistic and prevents some modern browsers from loading Microsoft Teams. For example, up-to-date Chrome on Ubuntu Linux is not considered a supported browser, even though changing the User-Agent string to Chrome on Windows allows Teams to load without any problems.

      Please consider a) just letting the browser try to load Teams, b) using feature detection instead of the User-Agent string, or c) blacklisting known broken browsers instead of whitelisting if the User-Agent string is used.

      • data retention

        on the settings there needs to be something for enterprise data retention. e.g. after 60 or 90 days data is purged off, or conversations roll off.

              It looks like some people in the thread below have figured it out — we actually have this. You can start a chat both ways; the system will automatically recognize if this person is on Skype for Business or on Teams.

              Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.

            • Import / Export for data migration between tenants

              At my IT company we are frequently working on Office 365 migration projects. We're also working on some merger / carve-out projects so we frquently need to move data out of tenant no 1 and re-import that data to tenant no #2.
              Currently this cannot be done by the existing graph api, as there is no support to access several data like chat conversation etc.
              Unfortunately, a support request answered that it's also not possible to get that from the support right now.

              I'd like to request some export-team and import-team functionality

                  Hi everyone, I wanted to check in on this ask because it’s died down since GA, and also because the ask is not totally clear to me.

                  Right now, we provide a way during the team creation process for you to select an existing Office 365 group. Are you asking to be able to do this same thing, but outside of Teams?

                  Do let me know!

                  Sincerely,
                  Suphatra

                  Support 3rd party audio conferencing provider (ACP) integration with MS Teams

                  Statement "...MS Teams does not support 3rd-party Audio Conferencing Providers (ACPs)."

                  Here is my position:

                  I am upset with the tactic which forces us to use Microsoft Audio Conferencing for Teams PSTN dial in capabilities . With Skype for Business, I could integrate a 3rd party audio conference provider. All my existing conferencing numbers would work. The Global Network Architecture created for us could remain in place. No workflow changes to end/users.

                  In Teams, I will be forced to use the MS Audio Conferencing service if I want that…

                  • Ability to provision existing Office 365 groups to Teams through Admin center or PowerShell.

                    When trying to create a team, an Owner of a 365 Group can be prompted to add Teams to that Group, but only once. After adding the first group they own, they are not prompted again. There is also no way to manually provision this service to existing Groups in the Admin center.

                    • share a specific application/window in screen sharing

                      When sharing "screen", add an option to share specific application rather than share the whole screen. I've got a 34" ultrawide and sharing the whole screen with someone using a small 13" laptop screen is untenable.

                      • Post OneNote page reference in Conversations

                        Add the possibility to post a reference to a OneNote Channel page under Conversations. When the reference is clicked in Conversions, the desired page is opened under the OneNote tab.

                        AS-IS you can use "Copy Link to this page...", but when clicked the page is not opened in Teams. Opens in OneNote Online.

                            Integration with ServiceNow for chatops for things like incident management (just keeping up with slack). Old way was ticket comes in the emails and IM's are exchanged. With Teams integration, the helpdesk ticket could come in and automatically posts the new ticket into a support channel in Teams. Support person acknowledges the ticket in our support system, which again posts on Teams that the ticket has been acknowledged by the person in Support. Everyone in the support team knows that a ticket has come in, that it is being handled, others are able to chime in if help if needed,…

                              • Delve integration into Teams

                                Maybe I am one of the few, but I like Delve for search...
                                So I am missing Delve in Teams :-(

                                Either in the list that get exsposed when you hit "Files" to the left, would kind of make sence
                                recent/teams/OneDrive/downloads/Delve
                                :-)

                                But Delve is more then file search, you would like to use Delve to search/browse people as well. So it might be better to make a left-side tab for Delve.

                                Yes, I know you could search for people in the chat tab, but not very Delve-like experience :-)

                                  • Global Admins add themselves to teams

                                    I'd like to have the ability to add myself to teams as a method of ensuring adherance to company policy.

                                    Right now, I am one of 3 global admins and we've had the problem before when using Slack of people making channels and productivity disappearing. We'd like to be able to monitor these teams when necessary, and requested by our Security Officer.

                                    I've attempted adding myself as a member, and owner, of the associated Office 365 Group but I am unable to get the Team to appear in my Team Client

                                      It would be nice to add a list from a SharePoint site to a Channel in Teams. That way we wouldn't have to leave Teams to go edit a list.

                                      • Enable Teams for both Skype for Business Online and on-premises users in Hybrid environments

                                        I know you are trying to drive more companies to Office 365 and that is ok for many things. Teams being exclusively for users enabled and homed in Skype for Business Online is really unfair. There are hundreds of thousands of companies out there with Lync and Skype for Business on-premises and a good percentage of those that have enabled hybrid for one or more reasons. From single sign on, integration with Exchange Online for voicemail and even for adding Meeting Broadcast capability. If you want Teams to be used by the masses you need to give it to the…

                                        • Outlook and Teams Unification

                                          We all rely on email way too much. It would be nice to have an outlook button in the teams app below files. one unified app for all my office products :)
