  1. 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?

  2. How to use laptop, tablet and mobile at the same time

    I'm using my Laptop (view) , Surface tablet (notes) and mobile (Audio). Video might be sent from any of the three. I would like to be able to make them coexist.
    Teams should be able to be aware of all the devices that I'm using and I should be able to have an on an off switch in some control. It should be very easy to do I think´

  3. Can you make this harder to use?

    I am sure if you gave it more thought, you could make this product more impossibly complex and needlessly opaque. What is the point of uploading a file if I cannot share it with my colleagues?

  4. Create Assignments or Tasks

    It would be very helpful to be able to create and or track a task/assignment in teams by integrating with either existing offerings (Planner for example) or third party applications used to track tickets.

  5. Limit the number of votes :)

    The UserVoice seems to have unlimited votes per user (I'm not running out). Some other products gave a quota, which makes one think more and leads to more presentative vote counts.

    (Also, no category for improments on UserVoice forum itself.)

  6. The app seems to be isolated

    It should work more like Whatsapp, you can quote a message to reply, there are notifications for individual chats as for group chats.

    Also there should be a way to integrate OneDrive, Sharepoint, etc into the app.

  7. 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.

  8. Would be nice if you could at least view (read-only) proprietary Microsoft app formats such as Visio and MS Project within Teams natively

    Would be nice if you could at least view (read-only) proprietary Microsoft app formats such as Visio and MS Project within Teams natively.

    By which I mean, if I upload a Visio or MS Project file to Teams, it should be viewable within Teams without the requirement for an add-in or putting my hand in my pocket. I understand it can't be edited without the fully licensed version of the product, but having this read-only function would be a real usability and productivity gain for Team users and would probably result in some "up-sell" of the associated products as people…

  9. Configure button in Connectors window should take you to the Configured events instead of creating a new one

    In the Connectors window (choose Connectors from a channel), if you already have as connector then it appears at the top of the list with a Configure button. This gives the impression that you are going to change the settings for your existing connector. However, at least in the case of a Visual Studio Team Services connector, pressing the Configure button doesn't configure your existing Visual Studio Team Services events. Instead, it adds a new event. This was not what I expected.

    Instead, pressing Configure should take you to the list of already-configured events. (You can currently get there by…

  13. Show discussions in Office

    When opening a file from Teams into the native Office application (e.g. PowerPoint, etc.), it would be good to see the Teams discussion in the application window.

    For example, a panel similar to the 'Format Object' panel in PowerPoint, at the right, containing the related Teams discussion.

    The reason is that quite often we make updates to the file that require the full tool (advanced animations, etc.) based on those conversations. When working on a single monitor that means constantly flicking back and forth which gets irritating, especially when working real-time.

  14. 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.

  16. I am looking for an App or Plugin to work with SharePoint lists from Microsoft teams. This would be the most natural usage for this Teams.

    Microsoft Teams was advertised as a new, stronger Interface to SharePoint. The Interoperability with SharePoint is limited to files. This Supports trivial usage of SharePoint as an auxilary file System only. All functionality that can actually bring on Team work are not supported.
    Does Microsoft - for instace - want us to use Trello for our task lists instead of our internal SharePoint?

  18. SfB Server plug-ins

    I know there’s some interoperability, but I can’t find anywhere that states the upcoming 2018/2019 version of SfB Server will be able to utilise voice through Teams. If it did it would be a massive win for Microsoft as many of my customers don’t fit with SfB or Teams online so they opt for Enterprise server instead but want the use of Teams to collaborate.

  19. Object List with updatable status and link to actions pr object

    I am looking for a function where I can adopt a exel list of objects to a updateable list in teams, where users from several different locations quickly can see status pr object, and also update them individually.
    Also I would like a "create action" pr object, and assign action to a person or function.
