      • fix notification settings

        The notification settings in the current version are buggy.
        Firstly all notification settings are blank, as you can see in the attachment.
        Secondly when you try to set a setting it disappears again after a second.
        Please fix that.

          Need the ability to delete a conversation. For hidden conversations, group them at bottom for easy way to un hide if necessary

          • I would love if it the teams tab had an option to organize how conversations show up. I am referring to date, continuing conversations, etc.

            Teams tab needs an option to organize how conversations display. Give us options sort by date of first posted, conversations you are in involved in, on going conversations, etc.

            Build an option to filter how conversations display because it seems like a jumbled mess right now!

            • Can we please have the ability to delete conversations. This does not make sense that you cannot reset or remove a conversation.

              • Settings options to hide or show Team in Outlook

                Teams are not shown in the Global address list and under groups in Outlook by default. In order to change this, we need to run a PowerShell command. It would be great to have an option in the Teams settings to show or hide the team from Outlook, so the Team Owner can change the settings instead of requiring PowerShell

                • Conversation listing most recent at the top

                  There should definitely be an option in settings to reverse the date order of the conversations so that the most recent is at the top vs. scrolling down. If we are to use this efficiently, that has to be an option outside of filtering.

                  • Notifications

                    The email sending options don't seem to work, when you add something as an update or reply to a conversation with the relevant notifications enabled it only sends a banner and not an email even with send as soon as possible set for email frequency.

                    • When I am not doing anything with Teams (it's just in the background somewhere) it seems to sometimes steals focus from whatever I am doing.

                      Is there any way to stop Teams from stealing focus from whatever I am doing int he foreground? Sometimes I am working in another app (Outlook, Visual Studio, etc.), and suddenly I notice that my keystrokes aren't showing up, and Teams has popped up a notification that I am "running the latest" (something like that). When it stole focus, it ate all of my keystrokes until I noticed what happened.

                      • Default tab in Teams

                        Tabs in teams

                        When opening a channel in Teams it starts by default with 'Chats' and this can't be changed.
                        Please make it possible to choose your default tab
                        (I normally use the tab 'Documents' and almost never use 'Chats')

                        • Teams Setting Wiped in App and Browser

                          Currently there is an issue with Teams (in a web browser or in the Teams desktop app) that is causing the settings for Teams to be wiped upon log out or restart of the user’s computer. This appears to happen to any owner of a team as well as the global admin for the organization.
                          I have attached a screenshot that shows the settings that are getting wiped out by doing the actions above.

                          This is a huge issue as it is time consuming to put the settings back and also a hassle to the users that may or may…

                          • Support for 24-hour time (Military time)

                            My desktop is set to use 24-hour time so I see "16:40" instead of "4:40 PM". Teams should reflect this behavior or at least allow a way to set it as such.

                            • Allow Teams Meeting Host to Toggle Meeting Entry Exit Tones Conference Bridge Settings

                              As an O365 global admin there is no way to let my Teams users toggle these audio conferencing meeting preferences themselves.

                              There is only a global setting in the Teams/Skype admin portal that lets me turn on/off these audio conference bridge settings for the entire tenant. My users need to be able to modify these settings like they could in Skype for business.

                              If I was hosting a large Teams meeting and running a webinar you can see how disruptive entrance and exit tones would be as participants come and go. The problem is that I can't just disable them…

                                We use the MSI installer to deploy Teams in our organization. We would like all computers to have Teams, but do not want Teams to auto-start by default. We would like a way of installing such that the default setting for "Auto-start application" is turned off.

                                  • Disable startup option

                                    Like Skype, it would be great if there was a setup option to not start on Windows Startup. Reason being, when on laptop, do not want lots of applications running that I dont need when on battery power. Saves time and frustration to not have these applications autostart. I can start them when I need them but not before.

                                      • Ability to choose location for file downloads

                                        Any file is downloaded to the 'Downloads' folder on the computer. It would be great if the user could specify or choose which folder to download the file to.

                                        • You need to add version control to the sharepoint files in the team app;need to see files are checked out

                                          Need to have version control seen in the team environment. It exists in SharePoint, but you can't see anything in the team files. I can't see when files are checked out, but in SharePoint I can. What is the point of a team environment if I have to go back and forth to the different applications.
