  1. "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.

        • 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?

          • Microsoft Teams for everyone

            Release a version of teams that is free to use or at least only requires Office 365 consumer. Make it the go to app for collaborating on non-commercial projects and with family members and friends.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • 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…

                  • 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?!

                        • Notifications dont work. I cannot find unread posts easily. Individual conversations run together and are difficult to separate.

                          Even this Feedback questionaire is clunky and lacks forethought from overpaid Programmers.

                            And even giving this feedback is made too hard. Make IT SIMPLE! Don’t make me think, should be you customer experience key giveaway!

                            • Don't ask me for feedback then give me tips on getting my voice heard

                              Your app asks for feedback. The link takes me to a website that expects me to filter existing ideas and vote, or to construct specific bug reports. This page gives advice on how best to get heard... You just asked for my voice but tell me I got to work to be heard?!

                              The android app errors too much, uses too much battery, and syncs poorly.
                              The main app doesn't notify by default on team channel messages, and there's no way of catching up with thread convos. Messages are often missed.
                              Status has been poor for years, marking people away…
