      Feature team thanks you for the feedback but it isn’t truly actionable.

      More concrete suggestions are recommended such as, “Please create a more compact chat layout” or “Increase density of the UI text elements”

    • Transparent Icon

      Handle transparency in Team icons. Currently an image with transparency will display transparent areas black.

      • Make Subject line visible by default on new conversations

        When starting a NEW conversation in a Channel, the subject line should be displayed by default and not hidden underneath the rich text expand button. Subject lines are very useful not only to let people know what that conversation is about, but also for searching later to return to the conversation after it has scrolled away some. We've enforced this on a few times internally using the honor system and have seen considerable success with keeping conversations on topic and getting people using the threading features.

        You wouldn't send an email without a Subject would you? Why should Teams be…

        • Chats & Channels Need a Pop Out Option

          While working on a document and also chatting with teammates it would be invaluable to have a pop-out option for chat. Ideally we should be able to pop out the individual chat, the entire chat window, and even teams or channels. This would allow for a more efficient day.

            • Customize Sidebar

              I would really like the ability to choose which apps go in the sidebar. It just makes sense.

              • Automatically place the pointer to chat/text input

                Whenever I receive a notification and I click on it with the mouse, I then have to click a second time in the chat box before I can start typing. From usability perspective this is very annoying. Whenever you receive a notification from someone, and click on the notification bubble, you should be able to directly start responding to this person.

                • Ability to pin supporting apps (Planner, OneNote, etc.) on the left hand side menu

                  So we can go to our favorite apps on the go without having to click on the elipsis.

                    • Personal workspace along with Teams

                      I think it would be great to have a personal workspace that lives along side your Teams. This would give you a similar toolkit as a Team with the conversation element pulled out. You would have quick access to your files (OD4B), OneNote, important stuff, etc. via tabs and then could use

                      I suppose this would just be the merging of the chat and files tab into a space that would also give you the ability to use tabs and connectors.

                      Might need some workshopping, but I think this could be a powerful way to get people spending a lot…

                      • "Your message is too long. Please shorten it before sending"

                        Who are you to decide how long my messages should be? If I want to post a long stack trace, I should be able to do it.

                        • Make Planner (and other apps) sticky to the sidebar.

                          I do a lot of work across teams and I want to click into Planner just like Chat or Activity to easily see all tasks across teams. Sortable by priority/due date pls.

                                    In Slack I can see the members of a channel, but I also know at a glance how many people are in the channel. With Teams I can see the team members but it is hard to get a quantity. Also, I don't know how to see who is following a given channel in the team. If I have a dead channel I want to know so I can remove it.

                                    • Show Teams with external users in a different colour scheme

                                      It would be good to have Teams with external users (guests) show up in a different colour scheme so that users are aware about internal/external groups at a glance. It will also help if there is a feature akin to Outlook Mail Tips which will indicate that content being shared in such Teams is visible to external users.

                                      • Advance Whiteboard Features

                                        Advance whiteboard features would add massive value to remote teams like icon & photo finder, wireframes templates, idea voting,web page capture or via URL, prebuilt templates (eg.Strategy, Agile, ideation, mind maps, sixsigma tools...)... A good inspiration can be found in Realtimeboard or Mural.

                                        • functionality to send email to all members in team

                                          Can we add functionality to send email to whole team at once. I am not sure if it is already there.
