  1. Start a meeting without scheduling it

    Make a meet now or start a meeting without scheduling it. This will be very important if you are to fully integrate with Skype as that is more of an instant system.

    • personal meeting room

      I have been using gotomeeting and zoom for a while and both provide a "personal meeting room" link that I can put in my signature. I can tell anyone I need to meet with (internal or external) to click the link in my signature to meet now and they will get put into a lobby until I start up my meeting. I also get notified if someone is sitting in my lobby waiting to start a meeting. This would be the final feature we need to switch over to Teams.

      • Use planner to overview all plans across all teams

        An overall plan showing all tasks / meetings scheduled across all teams would be very useful. Also being able to view other peoples plans across all teams would also be greatly helpful.

        • Integrate OneNote in/and Planner

          1) It'd be great if OneNote notebooks/tabs/pages could be linked to planner tasks and/or buckets - that way you'd incorporate a reporting feature into Planner, which desperately lacks it

          2) Even better, if OneNote tasks were bi-directional or fully integrated into Planner and also Outlook, that'd be a win.

          3) Follow a "single piece of information stored in a single place" concept and enable cross-linking througout your other apps where appropriate.

          As many users here said, there are many tools available, but there is a lack of a connection between them. Teams is a good tool, however ultimately needs to…

              • planner

                Whenever I want to add a date entry for a planner task - the first week of the day is Sunday. However in Denmark the first day of the week is Monday. Please make it an option to start the first week on Monday - like Outlook for example.

                    • Possibilty to add an O365 user (not a team member) to a team-meeting

                      It should be possible to add an O365 user to a team meeting, without the user being part of the team.

                      Example: I'm in a meeting with my team members and we have a question about a certain problem. We need the expertise of an engineer that is not part of the team. It would be great if we can add the engineer to the meeting to discuss the question and remove him from the meeting when the question is answered.

                      This is not possible with the MS Teams meetings nowadays. I can add members from the team, but not…

                          Instead of blank meeting invite, I have standard verbiage I add depending on the meeting's purpose. I'd like to have choices i.e. Requirements Gathering Meeting, Testing Meeting, etc.

                              • The Meetings Tab should check the current day and update dispaly accordingly.

                                I keep Teams open all day. When I leave for the day usually Meetings is the open tab. When I then login the next day, the Meetings calendar has not updated - it still shows the text 'today' but displays yesterdays meetings.

                                Meetings should update and know what day 'today' is

                                  Allow user to view just shifts in browser without having to load the Teams app, or go via Teams in the browser.

                                  With Shifts in Teams, there is some disconnect with what is available in StaffHub (understandable, but makes things tricky).

                                  A schedule created in Teams can't be viewed in StaffHub.

                                  StaffHub is currently a little more user friendly for large scale rota planning. It's quite buggy in Teams when dealing with a large number of people.

                                      • MS Bookings App for Teams (Channel)

                                        MS Bookings seems like a fantastic tool for Internal Enterprises.

                                        Some Cases:
                                        1) Book a Carwash
                                        We have an internal cash wash facility that is really great but it's not well used in general but then the poor gentlemen get overloaded with cars as the communication goes out. Internal bookings would work well to manage the time slots and booking.

                                        2) Book Onsite Nurse: As above

                                        3) Book Time with an internal Mentor

                                        4) Book Time with the CEO / CFO / CMO / CDO / CXO

                                        I can think of more. I think you'll think of even better use…

                                        • We need an overall project schedule

                                          I am an Architect for a large architecture firm in Dallas, Texas.
                                          We need an overall project schedule that we can issue & progress thru with our team. This would be great if we could set milestones that would hit peoples outlook calendars as well.
                                          If this could work with "planner" as well, we can take large tasks, for the team, and break them out into smaller tasks for each individual. this would be very helpful.
