  1. Giving tabs for opening multiple files in teams

    You cannot open multiple files in teams. So a tab-based file opening options should be there.

  2. multiple windows

    Allow Multiple Tabs and Chat Windows.

    It is incredibly annoying and the opposite of workflow friendly to have to exit out of an excel or word document when you get a chat message, only to have to go all the way back into the file and hit edit, only to have to log out again to chat. I don't want to have to open the files on my desktop, I want everything staying in the application. Is it really this hard?

  3. Power BI tab, with multiple reports?

    We've started adding Power BI tabs to our Teams sites.

    When you are in Teams and you go into the settings of a Power BI tab, it says "You can even add multiple reports to the same tab" ... and there is a hyperlink that says "Learn more"

    But it clearly seems designed to select just a single report. Right? And clicking "Learn more" takes you to a general Power BI web page, which does not have any details about using Power BI within Teams.

    Could you please clarify: is it possible to "add multiple reports to the same tab?"…

  4. Add TO-Do app as a tab in Teams

    Rather than having to run the To-Do app separately make it a tab in Teams as most to-do items relate to work in Teams

  5. Trello connector should allow you to create a card in Trello from a post in Teams

    Our team uses Trello to track agile development activities and we use Teams as our end user community. If I could take a post in teams and create a card from it, that would be wonderful! For example, if an end user posted an issue to Teams, I would love to push it to trello so that our development team could work on it.

    This feature request is now under review.

    I’ll keep you posted as we get closer to a decision.

  6. Set "Files" as default view for team

    It should be possible to set Files as default view for a team. Today the default view is "Conversations", which we do not use. This forces everyone to make an extra click to get to where the files are.

  7. Multiple Teams app windows

    First let me say that I'm quite please with Teams for Linux so far. Between Teams and Office 365, my use of Linux in a corporate environment is much improved. Thank you.

    However, it should be possible to have separate windows and to "tear off" tabs and individual chats from the application window.

    Generally speaking, it should be possible to have separate windows for any Teams function. Currently, it is quite sluggish to switch between different functions and being constrained to a single window exacerbates the problem. This would be solved if I could tear off, say, a Files tab…

  8. Multiple Tabs

    Looking for a way to have multiple tabs on teams. If i have a file open and need to access another file, or another channel/team you have to close the file but it would be good to be able to have multiple tabs open just like how you can have multiple file explorers open, multiple browser pages etc. Work around for now is the teams app open plus the web browser version but then you get multiple notifications popups and noises which is frustrating

  9. Fix the default file order by name in File tab

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    ファイル タブのファイルを既定で "名前順" に並ぶよう固定する機能の拡充希望

    Fix the default file order by name in File tab


    ■Description(内容):
    ファイル タブから確認できるファイルは、現在既定で更新日順に並んでおり、名前順に変更しても他チームなどをクリックしてアクセスしなおすとまた更新日順に戻ってしまうため、既定で名前順に固定できるよう機能の拡充を希望します。

    Files in File tab are currently arranged in order of the update date by default, and even if we changed the order by name, the order of files will return to the original order once we leave the File tab.
    For improvement of usability, we hope you to provide a default option to fix the file order by names.

  10. Sharepoint document search

    When you add a tab for a Sharepoint document library you can't currently search it, its just a long list. A search bar here would be great.

  11. Better permissions for tabs

    Right now Team permissions can only be set for members to "Create, update, and remove tabs". This means any member can remove a tab, which has happened several times in our Teams. The owner should be able to lock certain tabs so that members can update it but not delete the tab.

  14. links

    Can you add a "links" tab so that we can list links to websites opening in a separate browser? There are many, many websites and articles that we need to reference but that will not open with the https-iFrame Websites Tab. If you can't do this, how do you suggest we post links (aside from within a buried conversation)?

  17. Disable the "If your site isn't loading correctly, click here" message

    This message is not correct, it does not provide any value (suggests I use a browser instead of Teams) and occurs every time the tab is loaded or displayed - that could be fifty times in a single workday a day. It is displayed on every website I've tried, and yet they all load just fine in a tab. It basically makes the "website" tab unusable.

  18. excel dates

    Currently, when adding excel tabs to a team, some of the formatting is different to that in the spreadsheet when opened in Excel. A good example is where we have dates in a spreadsheet with format dd/mm/yyyy, in the tab it has changed the format to mm/dd/yyyy. It would be good if the formatting remains the same when viewed in Teams.

  20. Sorting/hiding tabs

    It should be possible to define the tab order (like Wiki as first tab)
