  1. I can't open 2 areas at the same time: ex. conversations & a file

    allow multiple locations to open at the same time so you can read from one while editing another.

  2. MS just continues to make thing different so the staff has to get used to yet another way of doing things. it is cute but not logical

    Just another way of doing things, everytime MS comes out with something new the old functionality goes away, they change color palletes to terrible pastel colors, and bury the functionality in places that is hard to find how to use them. It is definitely built for 20 year olds, cute but not very functional with no relationship to programs of the past. Apple on the other hand still uses the same logic that they come up with in the 80's so the basic functions are tuned and modified but you do not have to relearn how to find things within…

  4. Include Botton in Outlook to open Teams

    It would be great to have a botton in Outlook to be able to start Teams, the way you do with onedrive, for instance.

  5. 90% of a product isn’t enough Teams, give me a 105% product

    Interoperability only because you need to interoperate with what Sys Admins want more, AND your interoperability with humans needs a little work. YOU ARE ALMOST THERE! DON’T SLOW DOWN.

    You don’t need a task list - you have one here on uservoice. You need to start addressing issues, FINISHING issues.

    I’ve been struggling to deploy here for almost a year. You are the best of what’s out there, but that last 10% is affecting my health. Put your big-person pants on and get’er’done!

    -Andrew

  7. Set a status to reflect what Work Items you are currently working on - TFS connector

    As a user, it would be awesome to set a status specific to a TFS item you are currently working on.

    Possibly Microsoft Teams could publish items that are set to "In Progress" under your profile so that other users are aware of what you are currently involved in at the moment.

  8. Office Online not active when switching between applications and Teams

    When working in Office Online documents it seems that if I switch to another application and back to Teams, I have to click inside the office document to be able to work with Excel cells or for instance paste inside a word file. It would really be a timesaver not being necessary to click inside Teams every time.

  9. Add option on a tab to "make this tab a new channel" (or something similar)

    Sometimes I start a Tab, for example a Planner for a certain topic, then later discover that it's going to be a bigger project than I realized and that I really need a separate Channel for this topic. Rather than creating a new channel and migrating everything over piece by piece, I would like to click on the options for the Tab and start a new Channel with the same title of the Tab and automatically move the Tab to the new Channel.

  10. BLF key status monitoring for non-teams devices

    If you use Teams for Direct Routing (call2teams.com for example) you may have other users or devices on your PBX that you would wish to monitor.
    Can the status of other devices or non teams users be surfaced in Teams.
    This would be particularly useful if Teams is the only endpoint device available.

  12. Microsoft Teams support for IPAD 4

    Microsoft needs to support teams on ipad 4. This should help a lot of students who have an existing device and are unable to use it because of ios Incompatibility. Even chrome and other browsers on IOS 10.3.3 don't work.

  15. Microsoft should borrow from far more superior Zoom technology and rewrite most of the code. Teams need simple features such as login.

    Microsoft should borrow from far superior Zoom technology and rewrite most of the code. Teams need simple features such as login, changing options from chatting to video, louder sound, etc. Teams is very basic app. and it damages its credibility with business customers. Most users use it due to internal mandatory push within companies but once we have choice we rarely use Microsoft products, since they are still in the 1980s from usability standpoint. Company should hire more professionals to develop new products and should focus more on usability of its technology and catching up with industry leaders.

  16. Linking external calendars to Teams

    We have only just started to try Teams, one of our salespeople has an existing Outlook calendar, but no way to import or sync it to Teams. Others in our org use Google calendars, Apple (iPhones) etc. calendars, but there's no way to Use them as the main calendar, or import existing info for use in Teams.

  18. Synchronize Public Contact Folders to Team Membership Lists

    Enable the ability to easily synchronize public contact folders to Team Membership Lists, with changes to public contact folders impacting the Team Membership List simultaneously and/or vice versa. We have many public contact folders set up currently and the ability to convert them into team membership lists (and even set up tags for the sub-lists) would be incredibly efficient.

  20. Provide filter for unread chats

    When we are away from system and come back with list of chats, out of which we reply some immediately so keep for later. Getting filter on unread chat will make life easier. We don't have to scroll down all the way to get the unread chats one by one.
