  1. Importing from Slack, Hipchat, Flowdock, Basecamp, etc.

    Hi,
    We are using Slack for a long time and now we are thinking to transition to MS Teams. In Slack it is possible to export all channel content's in JSON with links to files uploaded to slack.
    It could be very useful to have the ability to import the slack history into MS teams.

    • Developer API to read/create teams and channels in them.

      Slack has dev api to list teams/channels and perform bunch of management operations. It would be great if there's something similar available in Microsoft Teams as well.

      • App connector to FreshService as well as FreshDesk

        You connected to FreshDesk, why not FreshService?

        I imagine it's very similar. FreshDesk is designed for customer based support teams, FreshService is based for internal IT - which means you'll be hitting a demographic of IT admins who are already mostly Windows based.

        • Teams doesn't appear when using alt-tab to switch between windows

          With the Teams window open I was using Alt-tab to switch between a word doc and Teams, but Teams isn't in the display of open windows when using Alt-tab. Another colleagues laptop does the same thing. Windows build is Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.16299.309]

              • Deploy teams as part of ODT

                Can Teams be included in ODT deployment just as rest of the Office ProPlus apps?

                • Add Option to set Channel Favourites via PowerShell

                  Please add an option to the "New-TeamChannel" and "Sew-TeamChannel" to enable us setting a specific or a new channel as a favourite for the entire team.

                  This is extremely important to us; We're planning to move from an open source solution to Microsoft Teams for our students (approx. 400 teachers and 5000 students here). Setting channel favourites seems silly, but is absolutely necessary for us. Not having the possibility to set channel favourites could be a reason NOT to move to Microsoft Teams.

                  Please add this feature as soon as possible; The rollout should start within 4.5 weeks.

                  See: https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/office-docs-powershell/issues/1220

                  • Support Microsoft Teams client on Windows Server

                    Currently Microsoft Teams is not officially supported on Windows Server operating systems. This idea is to officially support Teams on Server OSs. For reference, see: https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/OfficeDocs-SkypeForBusiness/issues/102

                    • make it useable

                      horrible layout and use of screen space. Looks clumsy and messy. Chats not organized. Things are all over the place. Files opens sharepoint. Notes opens one note. its a frankenstein. Looks dated and cluncky. Things are slow. In a nutshell, a big turn off. Please dont force this on us.

                      • Incoming Webhook Card Images

                        Using intranet images doesn't work. Using data URIs is not ideal. Please provide another way to include images that does not rely on a public-facing web server.

                              • Proactive quality and monitoring dashboard for Teams

                                I have several customers not happy with "SfbO/Teams" monitoring. We would like to proactively approach their users that had connection issues in S4BO/Teams. To do this they would like to have a list of users, that encountered an issue with their connection. Unfortunately tools that list sessions (session details report in S4B admin center and CQD) allow to identify sessions with issues do not display information about the user who had the issue. Call Analytics portal requires picking the user first so it’s not possible to find out who had issues.

                                Is there any way to get report that lists…

                                    • Rebuild Teams Into the Tenant Level

                                      The way Microsoft Teams is implemented does not seem very efficient. You have to specifically work within a team hub and open Teams and build out the space. There are too many teams within a big organization and trying to use an App such as teams to interact with hundreds of teams is just not efficient.

                                      Please engage the folks at http://www.office.com. Microsoft should simply have a strategy that in order to get started, consumer and enterprises equally alike, simply need to visit http://www.Office.com

                                      From there, they can simply make a call, have a video conference , work together…

                                      • Team Hubs are Silos

                                        The way Microsoft Teams is implemented does not seem very efficient. You have to specifically work within a team hub and open Teams and build out the space. There are too many teams within a big organization and trying to use an App such as teams to interact with hundreds of teams is just not efficient.

                                        Please engage the folks at http://www.office.com. Microsoft should simply have a strategy that in order to get started, consumer and enterprises equally alike, simply need to visit http://www.Office.com

                                        From there, they can simply make a call, have a video conference , work together…

                                        • Would like to move from Slack but not possible with Free Teams.

                                          I have 4 365 licenses for engineering to use to test apps. Now the rest of the company in same domain cannot have free teams. Must buy a license for all employees. We were hoping to move from Slack but are now forced to stay with Slack. Please fix licensing!!
