  1. The app seems to be isolated

    It should work more like Whatsapp, you can quote a message to reply, there are notifications for individual chats as for group chats.

    Also there should be a way to integrate OneDrive, Sharepoint, etc into the app.

    • Moving a page from a personal OneNote to a Teams OneNote is insanely slow!

      If I create a page in my personal OneNote and try to move it to a Teams notebook it literally takes and hour or more to synchronize. I've also lost at least one page that never made it to the Teams notebook at all. This is a major bug that needs fixing.

      • Would be nice if you could at least view (read-only) proprietary Microsoft app formats such as Visio and MS Project within Teams natively

        Would be nice if you could at least view (read-only) proprietary Microsoft app formats such as Visio and MS Project within Teams natively.

        By which I mean, if I upload a Visio or MS Project file to Teams, it should be viewable within Teams without the requirement for an add-in or putting my hand in my pocket. I understand it can't be edited without the fully licensed version of the product, but having this read-only function would be a real usability and productivity gain for Team users and would probably result in some "up-sell" of the associated products as people…

        • Configure button in Connectors window should take you to the Configured events instead of creating a new one

          In the Connectors window (choose Connectors from a channel), if you already have as connector then it appears at the top of the list with a Configure button. This gives the impression that you are going to change the settings for your existing connector. However, at least in the case of a Visual Studio Team Services connector, pressing the Configure button doesn't configure your existing Visual Studio Team Services events. Instead, it adds a new event. This was not what I expected.

          Instead, pressing Configure should take you to the list of already-configured events. (You can currently get there by…

                      I would like to have the option to integrate Outlook into my Team's Activity Feed, providing a single pane of glass to monitor all of my communication.

                      • Show discussions in Office

                        When opening a file from Teams into the native Office application (e.g. PowerPoint, etc.), it would be good to see the Teams discussion in the application window.

                        For example, a panel similar to the 'Format Object' panel in PowerPoint, at the right, containing the related Teams discussion.

                        The reason is that quite often we make updates to the file that require the full tool (advanced animations, etc.) based on those conversations. When working on a single monitor that means constantly flicking back and forth which gets irritating, especially when working real-time.

                              Request from a staff member that seems achievable given the existing Share button in Yammer could presumably be built into Teams in the same manner with cross referencing possible:

                              "I post heaps of notes and updates to existing P&C sub-channels on our projects (ABC project, DEF project, GHI project) - but other teams can't see this. LP and FCs on occasion want to be able to access this info to see where the campaign is up to, but aren't members of the Team or conversation.

                              What are the options?
                              1. Add everyone to our Team channels - is that appropriate? …

                              • The display name difference between Microsoft Teams clients

                                There is a difference on display name of a user between Microsoft Teams desktop client and mobile client. User’s display name is shown as a full name in desktop client. On the other hand, only the first name is displayed in mobile client. So, it would be great if you could standardize the display name between two clients.

                                • Apps: Integration with Security System Alerts (other systems too)

                                  It would be great if there was more support for Teams to connect to systems that provide alerts. For instance, systems such as Microsoft SCEP can provide email alerts for malware detections. If we have a team for SCCM management, we may want a channel where alerts appear thanks to SCEP malware detections. From there, we could create a conversation around that alert.

                                  There could be integration with Carbon Black, Crowdstrike, Sophos, Symantec, etc.

                                  • I am looking for an App or Plugin to work with SharePoint lists from Microsoft teams. This would be the most natural usage for this Teams.

                                    Microsoft Teams was advertised as a new, stronger Interface to SharePoint. The Interoperability with SharePoint is limited to files. This Supports trivial usage of SharePoint as an auxilary file System only. All functionality that can actually bring on Team work are not supported.
                                    Does Microsoft - for instace - want us to use Trello for our task lists instead of our internal SharePoint?

                                      • SfB Server plug-ins

                                        I know there’s some interoperability, but I can’t find anywhere that states the upcoming 2018/2019 version of SfB Server will be able to utilise voice through Teams. If it did it would be a massive win for Microsoft as many of my customers don’t fit with SfB or Teams online so they opt for Enterprise server instead but want the use of Teams to collaborate.

                                        • Object List with updatable status and link to actions pr object

                                          I am looking for a function where I can adopt a exel list of objects to a updateable list in teams, where users from several different locations quickly can see status pr object, and also update them individually.
                                          Also I would like a "create action" pr object, and assign action to a person or function.
