  2. Screen Space

    Don't restrict the width of the screen space for channel conversations, if my monitor is wide enough, adjust the display to fill up all the available space.

  3. Ability to specify different colors for different teams

    During testing of Teams app we found that users are quite often confused in regards to which team they are posting (specifically when they post to 'general' channel) - I think ability to assign different colors for different teams (by the owners/admins) would be helpful and could help to reduce amount of mistakes.

  4. 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…

    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”

  9. Show more than 1 week worth of calendar items

    Currently only the current week of my calendar is shown. It would be great to see more than 1 week worth of calendar items.

  10. 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.

  11. "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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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…

  14. Integrate Teams into Outlook

    It would be great if u could integrate teams into outlook. i mean the whole functionality of the 'teams app' could be a 'tab' in outlook.

  16. Change the colour of Teams, the default purple is deterring everyone from even trying it, and refusing to move from Slack

    Basically anything but purple or variant of it
    Personally i like green, but variant of blue will also do

  18. 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.

  19. Allow @mention myself in a conversation.

    When I am the note taker for a meeting, I use @mention for action items. When the action item is for me, I would like it in the notes and I would like to @mention myself (would show up in Activity).

  20. Show me the number of channel followers

    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.
