  1. SharePoint List Editing Capabilities

    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.

  2. Add-in for Mac

    As a Mac user, I'd like to be able to create Microsoft Teams meeting links via an Outlook Add-in, similar to the add-in available on Windows.

  3. 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

  4. 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…

  5. Hyperlinks and Searchable PDFs

    When you open a pdf, hyperlinks within the pdf don't work. Additionally, you can't search within the PDF (No Ctrl-F either). PDFs that are a few hundred pages long is far too long to scroll through to find a section that can be found in seconds using a desktop PDF application.

  7. 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…

  8. Adding Room devices to a Teams Live Event.

    During a Teams Live Event we can either take the TeamClients or a RTMP encoder as streaming source. It would be great to gain the ability to add SIP-endpoints or Skype Room system too.
    Being able to stream from any SIP device is the missing puzzle piece in an already great interrop solution.
    Imaging being able to use any video conferences room as Broadcast studio?

    I`m sure this would empower the Interrop soloution offer by Polycom, Pexip and BlueJeans a lot.

    Currently the only workaround is to use RTMP, but the workflow is to bad for the enduser.

  9. Share in Teams from Office 365

    Provide the capability across Office 365 (SharePoint, OneDrive, Delve, Sway, Stream...) to share a piece of content in Teams. This would share a link to the piece of content, not upload a copy.

  10. 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.

  13. Add in E-mail and e-mail functionality

    Teams could be a one stop shop application if it also integrated e-mail. Potentially under the file icon you could put an icon for e-mail and teams could work like an e-mail client. Again - I would use this exclusively - no longer have to have skype, outlook, one drive etc... all open when its all right here. Really would be amazing.

  14. 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…

  15. Link files to SharePoint Online instead of OneDrive

    The default seems to be to OneDrive rather than SharePoint Online Doc Libraries which seems backwards since SharePoint is for Collaboration and OneDrive is more private files

  17. Display full filename for sharepoint library

    when you connect sharepoint library in teams, the column width is fixed, teams cannot display full file name, you can display full name in web page version when you put mouse arrow on the filename.

  19. Merge Outlook Groups, Skype for Business and Yammer chats and Teams in one unique experience with one unique app and presence status

    It is a little bit confuse to us look for a conversation we had in more than one place. It happens a lot because some conversations (generally started by e-mail) are in Outlook Group, while others are in a Teams channel or in a Skype for Business or Yammer chat.
    I think that Teams, Skype for Business and Outlook needs to be merged in one UNIQUE rich experience. All we wish the most is to have a SINGLE PLACE TO SEARCH, share and talk.
    The presence status needs to be one for all Microsoft Office enviroment.

  20. Reply/Share by Teams

    Allow for people to share information by Teams. When I on web browsing and want to share an article, the site should have an option to share by Teams just like they do share by email, twitter, Linkin, Facebook, etc.

    Also, add ability in iOS to share information with, or open documents in, Teams. (Ideally, this would be available on all platforms, but iOS first please.)

    Finally, allow people to reply to emails by Teams. Currently, in Outlook, you can reply to an email by SFB message; you should also be able to reply by Teams message.

    I know these…
