  1. Copypasting text

    I need to be able to copy-paste text easily from the chat box to MS Word, MS Outlook, Notepad or other/non-Microsoft applications without extraneous text, ex. message sender.

  2. Teams in Outlook Customer Manager integrieren

    Teams should be able to provide a "Tab" for Outlook Customer Manager (OCM) in a similar way to the "Planner" tab.

    This would be a key capability for the running of sales teams. In business the customer contact is the centre point and this a massive oversight to have missed this! Yes you have a Dynamics365 connector but Teams needs to spans a lot more than this!

    Team discussions about customers should also show on the OCM feeds within outlook.

    Teams, Planner and Outlook Customer Manager are all from the same era and targeting small to medium businesses. We need…

  3. Create a better, portable and resettable caching system

    The Teams caching system as it currently is (January 2019) is totally untransparant, unmaintainable, unportable and slow.


    • Local (Client) caches are spread all over the device. This guy even created a powershell script to clean it: https://blog.valeconsulting.co.uk/2018/09/28/clear-the-microsoft-teams-client-cache/ and these caches as they are, are not portable or configurable at all (they reside in the users profile) eliminating any offloading in VDI infrastructures

    • Web caches are even more terrible, it can take up to 3 days before a simple logo change is visible, let alone core Governance policy changes that can take forever to get applied, in the meanwhile opening you…

  4. Get rid of Office365 groups, integrate them with AD groups

    I’d like to be able to manage rights bit assigning roles or permissions in applications. Office365 groups are invisible in e.g. SharePoint

  5. AI integration with Outlook

    Allow Outlook users to add a Teams connector. Through the connection, Outllook can make some suggestion that certain Outlook conversation should be published into certain Teams Channel. If users approve it, system can automatically beautify the content and publish it to Teams Channel for better knowledgebasing.

  6. Get a better feedback tool.

    Tool doesn't work well on Android. Not much better anywhere else. Sort like Teams.

  7. devops

    Serious issue: with Azure DevOps Build agent version. See attached, this is pretty serious in terms of providing a SaaS version of Team System, that is fundamentally not able to create up-to-date containers, targeted at the windows (current) platform, with default build agents. They are out-of-date, and need to be synchronized with the Windows O.S. Level (current).

  8. Looking for replies to emails that @mention a team channel to be nested in the Teams chat.

    Recently had an email thread that included an @mention to a Team channel. Each reply to the email created a new chat thread within the channel. Would be much better if it instead created a nested thread similar to the "conversations" view in Outlook.

  9. defender

    Windows Defender firewall blocks the network access of MS Teams whenever a new version is downloaded and prompts for access. This was not an issue for Skype for Business.

  11. Outlook contact are shown as guest

    Contacts added to outlook are shown as guests in the teams contact list.
    Their status is unavailable and sending chat messages will never show up on their client Teams or SFB.
    If I then search for their email, and wait about 5 seconds. I'll see an option to add as external.
    External contact receive messages.

    Why not just add them as external in the first place?

  13. Make Teams the default IM tool in Microsoft

    We're currently implementing Teams as the single IM platform in my company so I would really expect Microsoft to do the same, though I suspect otherwise.

    Using the latest version of the 64bit desktop app.

    There are so many bugs and things that could be improved that I really can’t be bothered reporting them all as these are obvious to anyone using it on a daily basis.

    Just tried to copy / paste an image from a chat to a new email in Outlook (fat client O365) and got myself a nice white rectangle instead!

    Could you give me a…

  14. Moving a page from a personal OneNote to a Teams OneNote is insanely slow!

    If I create a page in my personal OneNote and try to move it to a Teams notebook it literally takes and hour or more to synchronize. I've also lost at least one page that never made it to the Teams notebook at all. This is a major bug that needs fixing.

  15. Its another open window that I don't know what to do with. Integrate it with Outlook and Skype

    I do not know what Teams is for. Its another window that appears when I log in, so I close it.
    How about integrating Outlook, Skype and Teams into a single application rather than multiple that all appear to serve the same communication function.

  17. Incorporate Forms into Outlook

    Forms has a lot of great options that could be integrated into Outlook emails, specifically being able to do more than a yes/no radio button.

  18. Ability to share post from private Team conversation to Yammer

    Request from a staff member that seems achievable given the existing Share button in Yammer could presumably be built into Teams in the same manner with cross referencing possible:

    "I post heaps of notes and updates to existing P&C sub-channels on our projects (ABC project, DEF project, GHI project) - but other teams can't see this. LP and FCs on occasion want to be able to access this info to see where the campaign is up to, but aren't members of the Team or conversation.

    What are the options?

    1. Add everyone to our Team channels - is that appropriate? …

  19. GitHub integration should aggregate subsequent messages like issue assignments

    I often assign a GitHub issue to multiple people.
    This floods the teams channel with the GitHub integration with multiple "Issue assigned" cards.

    By sacrificing realtimeness a little bit, aggregating the same type of messages from the same GitHub repo for a few seconds would be much better, so that we can see the "issue assigned" card once with multiple people.

    Or, please reduce the use of "Card UI" for the GitHub integration's frequent streaming of such simple events, as other people also posted here.
