  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.

  2. 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.

  5. Chat export

    Individual and group chats absolutely has to have the ability to export it out as a word document or such. For a large business sometimes the context of a chat has to be copied out for various reasons and to not have the ability to do that is simply insane. There needs to be an export option (PDF, DOC ECT.) included in chats. Saving one individual message is not adequte.

  7. 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.

  8. Stop the clickonce userprofile installers! Please!

    Seriously creating a msi, to copy the clickonce **** to the progam files dir is the cheapest and most lazy sollution i have ever seen. I've seen this in smaller companies, but expect a lot better from microsoft.
    You created the msi installer, why not use it? Userprofile installs is not the way forward. Stop it please.

  9. 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]

  10. Non-licensed Global Admin/Service Admin accounts

    Currently non-licensed MS Teams admins such a service admin or a global admin gets an “access denied” message when using the Microsoft Teams PowerShell module. (Version 0.9.5) There should not be a license check to use this module as it is a common pattern to have non-lincensed privileged / admin accounts for administrative duties in an organization.

    Please see attached and address this.

  11. 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.

  12. Ability to determine inactive users

    It would be good to have a quick and easy way for Admins and more importantly owners of Teams to quickly see anyone that is not really making use of the Team or contributing to it and therefore make an informed decision as to whether or not to remove them.

  13. 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

  14. 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

  15. Disable USB GPO Not Working with Windows 10 Pro N Edition

    I have a Group Policy setting configured to Deny Read/Write access to USB drives on all computers. It is applied to the correct OU's, it is not filtered out, and I can see via RSOP & gpresult that this setting is correctly applied to the PCs.

    However, some Windows 10 PC's do not apply this setting and USB devices can still be accessed regardless of what the GPO settings are.

    Recently, somebody responded to a post I had made on another site and he was able to identify the issue.

    As it turns out, the service, Portable Device Enumerator Service,…

  18. addressing groups within teams individually

    when adding a group to a team, members are imported and displayed as individuals. when adding multiple groups to a team, this becomes problematic, as we would like to address one of the groups individually by mentioning @whatevergroup and not including everyone

  19. Get Apple Safari Support Number

    Safari Support Number – The Apple also has its own line of Browser under the brand name Safari. This browser is available for both Windows and Mac devices.

  20. 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.
