  2. Unhide a chat

    The ability to hide a chat was added which is great, but there does not appear to be a way to unhide a chat from the web/desktop apps.

  3. Unable to rejoin Meeting Chat

    I'm a member of a recurring meeting. After the last meeting, I left the chat by selecting Chat > {the meeting} > Leave.

    The next time the meeting started, I can't see or join the chat. There is a message "You can't send messages because you are not a member of the chat." I can see the chat from the last meeting up until the point I left, and it said I left the meeting.

    When I view the meeting series and select Chat with participants, I see a message "Sorry, chat is unavailable until you join the meeting", even…

  5. Ability to archive Chat Conversations

    Please add the ability to archive and/or delete conversation history form the Chat conversations. It's terrible to open a chant while sharing a screen and everyone sees your past chats.

  6. Pop Out separate window for "Contacts"

    Please enable the ability to have the Contact List (and status') in Teams as a separate window that can remain open on the side of screen. Similar to Skype for Business, having instant insight into contacts availability enhances efficiency.

  7. Save Chats

    In Skype for Business, IM saves in a Conversation History folder. This would be helpful to have since I can't find saved chats in Teams.

  8. online status

    The automatic status should be based on the overall PC activity, not specific on Teams activity.
    For instance, my status shows "Away" although I'm working on my PC in Word or Excel and Teams is running in the background. When I switch to Teams and do something, only then the status is "Available". But the status should be "Available" when I do other work in the PC.

  10. Better Contacts Management

    • When "Create a new contact group" -- Enable directory lookup and adding an entire AD group

    • Sync with Skype for Business contacts and groups through O365 Work Account
    • Enable drag & drop of contacts between groups
    • Enable starting a new conversation with group (all members)

  14. Merge threads from within a channel

    We need to ability to merge threads that become disjoint back into a single thread. This includes similar threads that are separated by some gap in time as well as merge separate threads that get started on common topics.

  17. Option to disable Chat within Teams / Microsoft Classroom.

    Schools wish to use Microsoft Classroom / Teams, but the Chat facility is inappropriate for many schools or settings. Provide an option whereby administrators can disable automatic team chat creation and/or turn off chat for teams.

    We trialled Microsoft Classroom in a large school. Teams were created using the MS School Data Sync (SDS). Unfortunately the feedback was that the team chat could be unsuitable for many classess, and students could post inappropriate content late at night when the teacher was not moderating.

    Please provide a facility whereby the Chat feature can be controlled/turn off by the administrator for selected…

  18. Group Chat: Make it possible for new participants to see previously shared files

    New participants to a group chat can't see files, via the Files tab, that were shared before they joined the chat. This is true even if you give them file access via OneDrive/SharePoint.

    Workaround: Remove all files and share them again (ouch).

    This seemed like a clear bug, but after consideration, I believe the behavior is intentional and a solution complicated/controversial.

    Since a shared file (files are shared in a group chat, not uploaded) is still owned by the person who shared it, if Teams automatically gave access to new participants, then Person A could share a file, Person B could…

  19. URL Preview options

    Close to this idea: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/32057815-preview-adjustment

    However, I would like to have the ability to enable/disable the URL preview and going further, it would be nice to be able to enable/disable by URL.

    Example: we use JIRA, it would be nice to disable the preview for specific sites like JIRA, but maybe still leave it enabled for other URLs.

  20. Add multiple contacts to groups each time

    Adding 1 contact each time is too slow. I would like the ability to add multiple contacts to each contact group each time the button is pressed.
