  2. Allow filtering VSTS trigger by work item tags

    Currently you cannot use the built in teams connector to filter by tag for VSTS work items.

    Feel like this is a important function that's missing from the current functionality - requiring us to use manual webhooks (see attachment)

  3. When teams logs out it should give a different message

    When you get logged out in the mac client it says:

    "You signed out of your account
    It's a good idea to close all browser windows."


    1. I did not sign out it autosigned out on it's own. The wording implies some action I did signed me out rather than an auto timeout.

    2. I am using the mac client not a browser. Perhaps behind the scenes it is just a browser, but this terminology is confusing.

    3. It saying "it is a good idea to close all browser windows" implies both that I need to close browser windows (not true with the…

  4. Same spell check functionality and auto-correct as in Outlook and Word

    Please can the autocorrect feature from Word be brought into MS Teams. I type fast and inaccurately in Word and Outlook because I have lots of autocorrects ready to correct me. MS Teams does not do the same and it slows me down ALOT. Plus often the MS Teams spellchecker has THE most bizarre suggestions for misspellings. eg I typed Shoudl instead of Should, but the only alternative MS teams could offer was 'Suzhou' - I mean, what, who or where is Suzhou?! Another great one was me typing Planenr instead of Planner, and MS Teams thought I must have…

  5. Open links to PowerPoint files held on Teams within Teams itself

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Teams 上に保存されている PowerPoint をハイパーリンクを開く際に Teams 上で開かれる機能について
    Open links to PowerPoint files held on Teams within Teams itself


    ■Description(内容):
    Teams 上に保存されている PowerPoint をハイパーリンクを開く操作をした際に、Web ブラウザーではなく、Teams 上で開かれる機能の導入を希望します。PowerPoint をスライドショーモードにしてハイパーリンクを選択するとWeb ブラウザーで開かれますが、これを Teams 上で開くこともできる機能を希望します。

    When opening hyperlinks to PowerPoint files stored on Teams, we would like to be able to open them within Teams itself, rather than in a browser. We would also like to be able to have hyperlinks for PowerPoint slideshow mode open within Teams rather than in a browser.

  6. Support SIP URI calling from other PBX's

    Currently the only way to route calls from existing PBX's to TEAMS is via Direct ROuting SBC and e.164 dialling.

    We need tgha ability for this connection to support SIP URI calling between the platforms.

    This was supported in Skype for Business and was used when a customer had multiple platforms, such as CUCM.

    This blog describes the desired operation : https://voipnorm.blogspot.com/2013/06/updated-cucm-sip-uri-dialing-to-lync.html

  7. Allow playing videos in Teams thread when accessing a meeting video link of Stream

    If you paste a meeting video link of Stream on a Teams thread and access the link, the Stream app opens in a new browser to play video.
    But we would like you to implement a feature that directly plays videos in Teams thread without opening browser.

  9. Meeting room status update between devices like MTR and meeting room device

    Summary:
    We would like to see functionality where, when a person starts a meeting using an MTR (Microsoft Teams Rooms), the meeting room screen (the device just outside the meeting room) is updated to reflect the status change. In other words, when a person walks into a meeting room, starts a meeting using the meeting room MTR, the status on the meeting room screen is updated to show the meeting is started. Also, when the meeting ends earlier, the status of the meeting room device is updated to reflect the same.

    User Story:
    1. Organizer#1 schedules a meeting
    2. On…

  10. Delete GIF files from history

    Delete GIF files from history would make this program easier to use. If you use a lot of GIFs. The program gets bogge down with old files. In the space where it says files, if there was an option to delete those old files that would be helpful

  12. Amazon Alexa and google home integration

    Working from home a lot, as many people are during the Covid-19 outbreak, I have an amazon echo in all the rooms of my house. I’d love to get a reminder to join a conference call for work and then actually join it on my echo device (audio only would be fine- unless you want to add Alexa video devices too !!!)

  13. Team Improvements

    You guys are doing a wonderful job with Teams, it is unlike all other conferencing platforms as it is a virtual space. However, I can see competitor’s platforms have features such as:


    1. Raise hands

    2. All participants camera preview on screen

    3. Interactive live White Board

    4. Interactive live polls

    Hope this helps with your future improvements to Teams and to keep up to speed with these other conferencing services, which I note are focused on one off meetings rather than daily virtual workspaces.

  14. Set user's coexistence mode per global policies (not api, not org-wide setting)

    In order to manage and organize a Skype to Teams transition in big enterprises, it may be required to assign a specific coexistence modes to different groups of users.
    For example: Teams-only for one group and Skype for Business only for the other group.

    Problem 1
    Org-wide setting includes guest accounts as well. Assuming that the Skype group is the bigger group at the beginning of a transition, you can not apply a SfB only org-wide setting because it will hit also guest accounts (which leads to no chat).

    Problem 2
    Setting single user's coexistence mode with api is not…

  15. Ability to choose which Channel to share to in Yammer tab when using "Share to Channel"

    Currently when Yammer is connected as a tab in a Channel, some functionality is removed from the yammer page, such as "Copy link to clipboard" and this is replaced with "Share to Channel".

    It would be great if you could then choose which channel you would like to share to.

    My Team has a yammer page available to the whole company and we are responsible for dozens of different services. We have a Team channel dedicated for each service. We have the Yammer tab on the General channel. Instead of having to add yammer as a tab to each channel,…

  16. Name a Chat with 2 participants

    Similar to how you can name a chat with multiple people, i want to have a named chat with one or more people, be able to concluded that conversation and start a new one with the same person about something else. these conversations may be happening simultaneously as well. I have people who work on a particular task and it would be beneficial for them to be able to ask private questions about that task and share documents and images and such without it getting mixed with the other tasks chat and documents

  18. Stop forcing the automatic creation of a team site whenever you create a new Teams

    This is one of the most frustrating issues we've faced using Teams and SharePoint. When you create a new Teams, a SharePoint team site is automatically created in the background, used for storing any attachments you upload in Teams. You have no control to configure this team site when it's created, no ability to prevent it happening, and if you wanted a Communications site instead of a team site this isn't even possible. No option to choose the site's URL either.

    On so many occasions we've wanted to create a Teams channel but not have a team site linked to…

  19. Interoperability with standards-based conferencing systems

    It would be great if Teams meetings could be joined using conference room systems from Polycom, cisco, avaya, WebRTC etc..

    This would eliminate the need for purchasing third-party services like Pexip or Polycom RealConnect
