  1. I want the ability to send or receive SMS texts within Teams.

    I want the ability to send or receive SMS texts within Teams. This was not possible with Skype for Business but is possible through regular Skype. The addition of this feature would convince more companies and government organizations to fully adopt Teams--especially Operations Centers needing the ability to quickly contact personnel.

  2. Favorite / Pinned Contacts on 3PIP Phones

    User was on S4B with a Certified 3PIP Phone
    User Used the Favorites Option to Add Contacts/Speed Dials to the Device and/or Expansion Module of the Certified 3PIP Phone
    User Migrates to Teams Only Mode
    Contacts are Imported into Teams Client
    You Can no longer edit the contacts that are favorites/pinned on the 3PIP device.
    I understand that's its not a Teams Device but you can't expect us to upgrade all devices to new desk phones which were just deployed in the last 12 months.

    Please make a way to have pinned contacts manageable on the existing 3PIP Phones.

  4. Add a Coexistence Mode - Only Calls in Skype for Business

    We are in the journey from Skype for Business on-premise Enterprise Voice to Teams voice. We started by operating in Islands mode (because we didn't know any better/we wanted to introduce the full features of Teams to get buy-in). However, now that we are testing moving users to Teams Only with Phone System, we are finding that because all other users are in Islands mode, calls from the Teams Only users to users still using Skype Enterprise Voice are ringing to the Teams client, not to the users' desk phones or Skype client.

    This can be solved by changing the…

  5. copy and paste from Word to Teams works (but slow), but not Teams to Word?

    I can copy and paste a word document with text and a graphics to Teams, and that works fine. But I cannot copy and paste the same conversation from Teams back to Word? Teams' user interface needs serious work for consistency among Microsoft's own products. This is SO frustrating.

  6. Make document handling between Teams and Outlook easier

    Allow to drag documents from the files tab in Teams directly as attachment into an email in outlook (and vice versa).
    While Teams already reduced the number of internal emails a a lot, externally, we work in an environment where emails with attachments are the normal way of communication. Right now, attaching documents from Teams (sharepoint) to emails is so burdensome that it reduces the acceptance and uptake of Teams in our team.

  7. Link Between Documents in Team

    Be able to provide a link in Teams that will allow you link two documents together and go to a certain section in the document. We currently use Teams and we have 2 documents that provide explanations from certain fields between the documents. It work fine in an offline setting. But Teams doesn't provide this functionality. It is cumbersome in Teams because our document we link to is 47 pages long and the user has to scroll the entire document to get to the section they need.

  8. Add DM to "Share to Teams" feature

    In the new Share to Teams feature users can select from a list of available teams and channels to share to.

    It seems natural that if I want to share something I should be able to share it to a specific team member as a direct message rather than a post in a team or channel.

    This would be useful for education where teachers could share to speficic students rather than a whole team or channel.

  9. Better support for working across companies.

    I am a one man company. I work with many other companies for a client. We all have different email addresses. Many tools like the whiteboard don't like to work this way. Even messaging doesn't work well across company borders.

  10. I love teams. But I'd like to be able to copy messages without the "save"/"like" button getting in the way.

    But I'd like to be able to copy messages without the "save"/"like" button getting in the way. I know maybe you're thinking "how often do you copy text messages?", I know in our personal life maybe is not that often but when it comes to work believe me when I say I struggle with this a lot.

  12. Add support for sharing with Microsoft To-Do

    Having all MS applications; Office 365, I expect them to share data easily between them.

    Today if I use the Microsoft To-Do application and choose Share, Microsoft Teams is not a support application. Granted I can copy & paste, but integration between the two apps is expected.

  14. Sharepoint contacts integration

    The contacts could appear in Teams if the user is member of a Sharepoint with a contact list.

    This can be pretty useful to make Teams the indispensable to day by day work and also really handy. Also integrate the possibility of update it from Teams itself.

  15. Need to access to SPO sites even when the conditional access has been set on Teams mobile app

    I would like you to enable to access to SPO sites when the conditional access has been set on Teams mobile app. If I configured the conditional access on Teams desktop client or mobile app, I receive an error and can’t access to the SPO site when trying to open it from the SPO tab. We can access to the site from Web client on PC as a workaround, but it is inconvenient.

  16. Linking one Team inside another Team, Nesting Teams

    I create a Team, let's call it Project X. Inside Project X I have 3 channels, Communication, Execution, and Creation. The Creation channel decides that the channel setup is too limiting, they create another Team that resides INSIDE Project X. Allowing for channels and sub-work groups.

  18. Start over

    This is a dreadful product. It's redundant, difficult to navigate and lacks the seamless integration with my Plantronics headset that was so nice about Lync/Skype.

  19. Teams to be interoperable with standard video or work as S4B!

    There is a whole world out there that needs to communicate!
    To make Teams your new, and only, way to do video, NOT being able to connect to Standard based solutions, or for videoservices, no matter brand, coexist with your solutions, the way you made it possible with S4B. Without an open communication, your solution should be sent back to the 19th Century! It is simply wrong thinking! Sorry, but this is the truth!
    A very, very unhappy customer!!!
