  1. Connectors stop working when the creator leaves the team

    We have found when a user leaves a Team or is removed from a Team all of the connectors for that user stop functioning. They remain, which is critical, so another user can read and replace the defunct connector.

    Would be great if they continued to function or if there was a way to transfer to another user or have another user assume control.

    • Live editing of tabbed documents

      This would apply to all things. I find it cumbersome that I need to open a new tab to edit the document that is right in front of me. Would love to be able to edit right there in that tab and see others doing the same. Collaboration levels would increase.

      • 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.

            • copy a picture that is already posted in a chat

              If someone posted a picture/screenshot in the chat the only way I can copy that picture is to download it and then re post it. In Slack I was just able to right click on the picture copy and then pasted on another chat. In teams when I right click on the picture nothing happens. Is this feature possible in Teams?

              Thank you

              • Continue email conversation in teams

                I constantly get include in email chains that quickly fill up my Outlook Inbox with every reply.

                It would be great to have a “button” that “moved the conversation to teams”

                I suspect forwarding the message to a channel is the closest function but part of the process needs to be a reply to all notification that confirms the conversation has been moved and a link to the channel.

                • Add Links Tab to Conversation View

                  Options are currently:

                  Conversation - shows chat
                  Files - shows attachments sent in chat
                  Notes - shows notes
                  + - shows additional apps

                  "Links" should be another tab which shows all URL's posted in the conversation. Common feature in other solutions.

                  • 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?

                        It would be great if your Skype (for business) status could automatically turn to *do not disturb* when your in a MTeam call.

                        • Enable a right-click menu for the main chat box

                          Right now, if I have something like a link from Edge on my clipboard that I want to paste into the chat box and send, I can't use my mouse to do that because right-clicking in that box does an automatic search using whatever text is highlighted. This is kind of useless. Most of the time, when I highlight something, I want to copy/cut and paste it. Just enable normal right-click menus for text editing!

                          • Make Teams documents visible to Delve

                            A major barrier to adoption of Teams across our business is the difficulty in finding files - you need to find the right team and then access the files that way, assuming that the file you are looking for isn't in OneDrive, or a SharePoint Online site, etc.

                            Ideally, the files inside Teams libraries should also be exposed to Office Graph, so that Files can be found via Delve, allowing for a single point of search for all documents.

                              • Better support for hi-dpi and docking

                                I have a Surface Book that gets docked and undocked regularly. The external monitor is not a high-res display, and consequently, the size and layout of the desktop app gets pretty weird after docking. Essentially, the app can't be used unless the window is made super wide.

                                  • Team as distribution list

                                    The group I created automatically generated a contact in the company directory. If this acted as a distribution list, it would be fine. However, it has potential to duplicate existing distribution lists. Beyond that, if you accidentally email the contact, it goes into the "Groups" folder, which for our team which has only barely begun using MSTeams, basically sends it into a void. It does not appear in the inbox or as a skype notification or even in MSTeams itself!! If at least it showed up in MSTeams as a post, it would make some sense. As it is, it's…

                                      • Save Skype4Bus Conversations

                                        If you leave the application open it keeps the conversations you have and with individuals. If you close the application you lose these and the flow of the conversation. Save conversations so they don't disappear (or pull them from save conversations folder int he mailbox)
