  1. Support for Private Channels

    Looking for the ability to create a channel that only channel members can see. Private channels are available in slack. There is an admin for private channels who is the creator, and they are the ones who add/remove users.

    Five types of public/privacy that is being asked for by users:

    - Public-Open (visible anywhere including outside the org and anyone can join)
    - Public-Invitation (visible anywhere including outside the org, must be invited)
    - Company-Open (only visible inside the org and anyone in the org can join; outside the org must be invited)
    - Company-Invitation (only visible inside the org,…

    • I want to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time

      LOG INTO MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
      Original user posted:
      I would like to heave this multi-team/tenant option within “MS Teams”, like in Slack. Currently I’m in four different organization. They’re using all office365, three of them now changed from Slack to Teams. I’ve to permanently login/logout to switch to the related MS Team. This is really time consuming.

      Another user says:
      We need the ability to sign in with multiple accounts. Many of us have several O365 accounts for various reasons (consulting, etc), and we’d need to be able to access teams directly.
      This is not a federation or B2B scenario, but…

      • Move channels into other teams

        We would like to move a project (channel) between groups to keep the information, or be able to sort channels to our liking.

        • Move conversations to different channels

          If a conversation is started in one channel but gains importance to the point where the conversation deserves its own channel. Or a conversation was started in the wrong channel and needs to be moved

          • Search Public and Private Teams

            Users report its very difficult for their peers to find a team that they have created. This hinders their ability to increase team membership.

            ---

            Other users report its frustrating that they can't just search ALL the teams at their organization -- that only a small fraction are surfaced to them in their "Suggested" view.

            ---

            The capability to view Public Teams when you click on "Create Team" is great.

            HOWEVER... it would be a better user experience if there was a prominent button or link called "Search for Teams".

            Teams needs this discovery capability to avoid the duplication of…

              Unfortunately we hit some snags and this has moved back to “working on it”. The team is working to make some corrections and I hope to have a release date in the near future. I’ll keep you posted with what I hear.

            • Ability to Copy a Team

              It would be really useful to copy a team with all Channels and files/tabs associated, this way we could create a template and copy it when creating new teams

                We’ve heard your suggestions and are working on the ability to clone an existing team using a template. When released, if you were to click on Add Team, then Create a Team, you would get the UI pop up that prompts you to “Create your Team” but, if you look to the bottom of the UI you would see the option to choose “Create a team using an existing team as a template”! Once you select that option, you would be able choose which channels, team settings, apps, and members to inherit via a simple setup wizard.
                Look for this feature to release by the end of the calendar year! And thank you all for the great feedback. -Warren

              • Setting to choose if Private Teams should still be searchable

                We create our Teams as private by default since they are about the clients we work with. We are okay with everyone at the company knowing that these Teams exist, but we don't want them to be able to join them without permission.

                The problem we're having is that people keeping asking 'does a Team exist for client X?' and there is no easy way to answer that question.

                We'd like a way to search for private teams so that folks can request to join them.

                • Sharing Desktop Zoom in and out capability

                  Participants should have the capability to zoom in on the user who's sharing their screen with the participants.
                  this functionality is available on Skype for business, it's called Actual Size / Windows Fit

                    We are actively working on developing a solution for this. I will update when this gets to testing/validation.
