    • "What's Changed" overlay (Coachmarks)

      You should have a "what's changed" overlay everytime it updates, or at least a pinned topic on this page with a summary of the changelogs.
      Given that it is a new product, some updates might include the missing feature that a team is waiting to switch over to Teams and it would be good to be able to discover this.

      • stop suggesting the mobile app

        Every time I start the desktop app I get a banner at the top suggesting the mobile app. Please make a way to disable ads.

          • Minimum System Requirements

            Would like to see what Microsoft's minimum recommended Hardware and Software requirements are for Teams, in a published document somewhere.

            Does anyone else think that we should have this information from Microsoft?

            • Teams Intro Video

              There is no way to exit the Intro Video. I had to close the Tab. Add a close button.

              • Save Conversations to Outlook

                We are moving from Lync/Skype to Microsoft Teams at work. One of the features Lync had was the ability to have conversations automatically saved to a folder in outlook.

                This gave me the ability to have a record of a conversation that could be attached to emails as needed.

                If Microsoft Teams has this functionality, I have not been able to find it. I can only see the ability to copy and paste a conversation, which is easily editable.

                Does Microsoft Teams have this capability or are there plans to add it?

                • first launch tutorial

                  Teams introduces a lot of new concepts and features, especially for "non-millennials" but even for "millennials".

                  There should be a quick, interactive tutorial on first launch that calls out how this app works. For instance, what is a Team, what is a channel, what do @channel and @person conversations do/alert, what do favorites mean, use the add content to tabs for easy access, etc.

                  As a whole department, it collectively took us a while to figure it out (and still haven't figured out everything). Why not give us a quick, 30-60 second rundown of this very new concept of Teams…

                    • Newbie Mode

                      In group channels, if someone enters a message via "Type a new message" area (instead of replying to an existing thread) Teams will ask if they are sure they wish to create a new thread. (Of course the usual options in the prompt to disable asking again in the future.)

                      I would also change the "Type a new message" to "Start a new thread"

                      Perhaps replace the "Reply" button with a "Type a response" box.

                      • How can we add external org contacts in Teams. this was relatively easy to do in skype for business but not in Temas

                        I have enabled external access in org-wide settings, but in Teams, I still cannot add external users.

                        The message in teams says, we can't set up the conversation because your org are not set up to talk to each other.

                        In skype for business, we regularly talk to each other. so both orgs are set up. In teams it does not want to add the same contact

                        • When creating a new team from the Teams Templates Copy SharePoint Lists

                          When you have created a Team and you have created a SharePoint list in the background it is not copying this list over.
                          I setup a OneNote with some information about the Template and this was not copied over.
                          I setup a Planner tab with some build in tasks and this was not setup and all information gone.

                            When using Edge or Chrome to signup for the Microsoft Teams uservoice forum it's not possible to accept the terms of service and therefore sign up. It's fine using IE.

                            By comparison, the Visual Studio uservoice forum will allow signup with Chrome and Edge.

                            • go ahead and log in

                              Hi,
                              I've been using teams for a while, but since my last password change I can't log in. The windows application is continually stuck at "Go ahead and log in." I've uninstalled, reinstalled, cleared my credential cache of all msteam* items. I can't seem to get in regardless of anything of tried. I can still log in through the web application, but the windows app is not working at all.
                              Thanks,
                              Jon

                              • 10 Minute Rapid sign up

                                Let's suppose I am in one of the following situations:

                                * I'm a teacher or lecturer with a class full students.
                                * I'm at a conference doing a presentation

                                I want to create a team and add all the people as members. Which would be doable if I had a list of everyone's email. But often teachers don't have instant access to all of their students email addresses. Rarely would presenters know the emails of all the guests.

                                At present I could get a link for my team. Then convert that to QR code then project that on the wall…

                                • Explain what the product does

                                  I'd like to learn what the product does. I did not find a Help link within the window of the product. The product was imposed on me through some project within my company. I do not understand the purpose of Microsoft Teams - it seems like a chat application. What is the benefit?!

                                  • interface is vey poor

                                    App will not open to recent chats. It is not customizable in that way. It will not let you delete a channel. When you click "Chats", it won't show your Team chats, only these private ones. The Activity screen doesn't show you recent team chats. The app is called "Teams" for goodness sake. But the hardest thing to get to is the most basic team chat. WhatsApp, Messenger, GroupMe, and basically all text apps have this simplicity. You're Microsoft! You should do much much better with this.

                                        • Outlook Integration - Email Draft Recipient check against Teams

                                          Need help on the switch from the old paradigm of communicating to a team via email to the new one using tools like teams.

                                          It seems people need lots of reminders, they often revert to the old habit of email even after being added to a team..

                                          maybe some sort of outlook/teams awareness (plugin/etc) to help encourage teams use in some cases?

                                          Such as:
                                          <outlook notification>
                                          All Recipients of this email are members of Team X; would you rather use MS teams (<link to team>) for this communication?

                                          etc.
