  1. Reply with IM in Outlook

    Replace Skype in the Reply with IM feature in Outlook.

    Currently, Skype for Business users can "Reply with IM" or "Replay All with IM" to an email in Outlook. This opens the SFB client with a message to the email sender, or a group message to all recipients on the email.

    I am proposing the ability to either replace SFB with Teams, or add Teams as an option to the existing functionality.

    Ideally, once this ability exists, the key value is to easily move a conversation from an email to either a channel, a group chat, or an individual chat,…

  2. Fix the Teams Meeting Addin for Outlook

    There are two things that are critically broken:


    1. The Teams Meeting Addin for Outlook never works out of the box. Even on a fresh installation of Office 365 ProPlus and Teams, the Teams Meeting addin never loads. We have to manually go to each user's computer and close Teams and Outlook and then manually register the Microsoft.Teams.AddinLoader.dll, then start Teams, then Outlook to get it to work. And then the next time Teams updates (which is frequently), the Addin breaks and disappears.


    2. The Teams Meeting Addin for Outlook does not work if we use federated authentication. All our users MFA…

  3. Why is the "info pane is disabled by policies" when trying to get a meeting's dial in number?

    When trying to get a phone number for a meeting, I found an article that says click on the info pane to get the number. When hovering over the info pane, I get the message, "Info pane is disabled by policies".

    I am assuming a Group Policy. Which one and why?

    Is Skype for Business required for this feature?

  6. 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.

    we have this!  ·  Warren responded

    When you start a meeting and click the share button you are presented the option to share your whole desktop or choose a specific application to share.

  7. ServiceNow integration to facilitate ChatOps

    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,…

  8. Include Teams message channels in SharePoint and Dynamics 365.

    Like you can do with Yammer, it would be great to be able to insert a Teams channel into a SharePoint site or Dynamics account page, etc. In Dynamics, you can use a Yammer chat in lieu of the Activity Feed. Likewise, in a Sharepoint Group site, you can use Yammer in lieu of a team news feed, etc. It would be great to be able to do the same with a channel from Teams. There are too many app-specific ways to communicate (activity feed for Dynamics, news feed for Sharepoint, Channels for Teams), and most people don't want to…

  9. third-party chat clients (e.g. pidgin)

    Other chat programs (Slack, Cisco Webex, Google Hangouts) allow third-party clients, typically over XMPP. Can we have an XMPP port on the Teams server?

  10. Ability to use notes:// as protocol in Links

    Ability to use notes:// as protocol in Links to open a IBM Notes Application / View / Document in a O365 / IBM Notes Domino coexistence environment.
    Now it is only possible to use http:// or https:// as protocol in a link. The IBM Notes client registers the notes:// protocol in Windows, so it is possible to open IBM Notes Applications / Views / Documents from other applications with an URL like "notes://SERVER/db.nsf/view/DocUNID". URLs in this form are already opening the linked resource in the IBM Notes client from Microsoft applications like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote.

  11. 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.

  12. Share Teams files/folder with External contacts, without requiring a login

    Currently when you add a file within a Team there's no way to share that file with an external contact.
    I would like a way share a file from within teams with external contacts. I would also like them to be able to edit selected files as well as upload new files and have them show up in the channel's Sharepoint Directory.

  14. Continue email conversation in teams

    I constantly get include in email chains that quickly fill up my Outlook Inbox with every reply.

    It would be great to have a “button” that “moved the conversation to teams”

    I suspect forwarding the message to a channel is the closest function but part of the process needs to be a reply to all notification that confirms the conversation has been moved and a link to the channel.

  16. Post to Yammer from Teams

    It would be great if we could tag a Yammer group to add a post in Teams to that Yammer group as well.

    For example, if I have a Yammer group named ICT, I could simply tag @ICT and have post in Teams added in Yammer as well.

    My organization has just gotten used to Yammer and is reluctant to transition to Teams, but I find Teams a much better tool in most cases.

    I'm trying to encourage them to use Teams by filling it with useful Information, but it would be good if I don't have to post twice…

  17. 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

  19. 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.

  20. Google Calendar

    I rely on Google Calendar for all of my day-to-day events so right now, I’m having to manually put in my shifts that I’m assigned on Teams. Would be nice to have it sync with my Calendar and maybe even show my supervisor when a shift conflicts with an event on my calendar, similar to Outlook when scheduling a meeting. I’m sure others would benefit from this too? Thanks!
