  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  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.

  6. 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,…

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  12. 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…

  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. 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.

  17. 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

  19. 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?

  20. New Excel Co-Authoring does not work with Excel Docs in Teams

    New Excel desktop Co-Authoring does not work with Excel Docs in Teams. We've tried going directly to the group, sharepoint and inside teams and every time it tells you the file is locked. A regular O365 group and OneDrive work fine but take that same file and put it in teams and no more co-authoring.
