  1. Add a MS Teams "add" button on the MS OWA main page.

    I used MS Teams with Outlook 365 for a previous employer. Currently I am using Outlook through Exchange and I have issues trying to link my work account to the MS Teams app.
    1 - is the MS Teams available for Exchange type of Outlook?
    2 - if not, why?
    3 - if yes, just create a user friendly button on front end or menu for users who want to add this IM service. And make Slack envious ;-)

    • Button to extend all posts and comments in the Channel

      It is very hard to preview all posts and comments when half of them are hidden by "x replies from" or "see more". If you want to catch up after few hours of absence, you need to click thousands times to each "extend content link". Could you add one small checkbox somewhere to enable see one stream of everything, if needed?

      • Allow arrangement of Teams/Channels into Groups in UI

        On at least two occasions, something like this idea has been proposed and declined. This may be because of a misunderstanding.

        This idea proposes to allow users to arrange Teams, channels and other views into groups, purely as a UI convenience.

        The default state would be that this reflects the existing view hierarchy, but it is possible to move the icons/widgets/links around in the UI to better reflect the user's view of their work. The view hierarchy would also be selectable so that the underlying structure can be seen.

        This satisfies one of the 8 Golden Rules of UI Design…

          • Hi

            The options are too confusing. The integration between Teams, Skype, One Note is great but often not seamless. For eg: I created a notebook that is called as shared on Teams but cannot be seen by others using Teams. I get a message saying that the notebook cannot be shared now.

            I setup a Skype meeting through Outlook and it sends a url with Lync in it. Confuses the users a lot.

            The Outlook calendar view looks totally different from the Teams calendar view on an IPAD.

            • Please fix the Latvian translation

              I hope this was machine translation of "Hang on tight.." because the meaning of what's written here is totally ridiculous, meaningless and for some even potentially offensive. Why not have fields default back to the original English text in places where no human translation/editing has been made.

              • Better sorting and control by user

                Can’t sort. Can’t categorize. Can’t have members by channel only team.

                    Hi! I've noticed that plenty of people are constantly trying to reply to a private chat message but accidentally answering in a public channel. This didn't happened that often when we where using another app. I think you should test that experience and see if there is a way to improve that and help your users.

                    • 'Upload from my computer' blocks name of first attached item

                      When attaching file to 1:1 chat (and maybe Channels as well); if I choose to "upload from my computer", the pop up remains while I navigate, via windows, to the file to be uploaded.
                      This is in the way when uploading successive files. See attached screenshot. In my example, I had uploaded the first file, and went to upload the second, but had forgotten which file I had already uploaded. I had to close out, "remember" and then pick the second file.

                      • Add hover text explanation for menu items

                        Add descriptive text to help people with confusing/similar definitions in the menus. For example, under the channel ... menu, show a definition of Follow and Favorite so people know what they do without having to read a how-to guide.

                        Ultimately, I'm trying to find better ways to show people they need to take action to Follow and Favorite channels that are important to them.

                        • Put Chat back into Lync/Skype for Business where it belongs

                          Why have you decided to, without my firm's approval, phase out Skype for business to integrate it into Teams? It doesn't work as well, is really frustrating as a broswer window and gives me no information when compared with the ease of use that Skype has had through several iterations of version releases. PLEASE reconsider and put Skype for business BACK, no need to try to fix what ISNT broken.

                              Right now I cannot “Like” the original post in a Team discussion thread. Replies can be liked, but this does not appear to be possible on original posts (at least those coming from external api calls, such as when Azure DevOps posts a message to a Team)

                                        Product is not about the features....
                                        It’s about my personal experience of using it.
                                        This product is very functional but I have to learn it and it’s philosofy of operation. Make it learn me and my philosophy of living.
                                        Make me enjoy to touch it because I enjoy the touch and not because I need to do a task.

                                        • Sync theme between devices

                                          Would be nice if by theme setting (dark mode) would be saved for the next device I sign into. My company just went through a merger and I sign into two tenants, causing the theme to reset to default every time I log into the other tenant.
