  2. Merge the "Teams" and "Chat" tabs into one.

    In the current design, it's far too easy to miss chats or messages in channels (since you probably can't tolerate being notified about every new message) since they're in different tabs. Rather than a simple glance at the sidebar like you'd do in Slack, you have to manually switch tabs. The view of channels and chats needs to be merged into one tab so they're both always visible in the sidebar... like Slack.

  3. Provide automatic authentication for users when accessing a SharePoint Online site through a Website Tab

    Provide integrated authentication for users when accessing a SharePoint Online site through a Website Tab in the Teams App. The current user experience is that users are prompted for credentials (including MFA if configured) each time they start the Teams App. The behavior can be repeated by closing the app through the Quit option in the Teams system tray icon. The user experience would be greatly improved by providing an automatic logon with current username and password similar to Windows Internet Option security settings. Reference O365 support ticket #:11573773 where case was reviewed with a Senior Escalation Engineer and informed…

  4. template

    I am unsure if this already is mentioned...

    We are looking into using Teams for handling Task Force /war room meetings.

    Idea is to have a team called e.g. Incident Management Task Force, and then a new channel for each new incident. We would like to have some default tabs set up every time, like "Meeting minutes", "System status", "Actions" etc. These tabs should then have already designed notes or excel sheets.

    In this way we will be able to start up a TF very fast, and all participants can switch between the tabs and see the info they like,…

  5. I would like the ability to pin pane to stay pinned so the next user can see the pages.

    When a OneNote tab is created in MS Teams I would like the ability to pin pane to stay pinned so that the next user can see the pages on the left side of the screen. Currently it only stays pined as long as I am in the tab.

  7. Allow popups in tabs

    I added an internal website that requires AAD auth, but AAD doesn't seem to be able to sign in with MFA, which I'm guessing is because of the popup :-(

  8. Allow multiple windows or tabs

    Allow for multiple windows or tabs in the desktop app to browse teams, chats, the calendar, files etc. Currently, having to change the window every time instead of having the ability to keep open what you're working at. It is very frustrating to have to navigate from the main page every time instead of just being able to jump from window to window or tab to tab.

  10. attendance

    I want to maintain and track attendace of my team members. So I am looking for some new app or existing app like excel which can help me to that. I also want each team member should mark themselves as present and get automatically marked absent if they are not present for a day. Also they should be able to see other team members attendance sheet.

  11. Dedicated RSS Tab

    A dedicated tab for RSS feeds would help to keep user contributions in plain view.

    RSS feeds in the communication tab make it difficult to find user posts because there is too much clutter.

  12. Create a TAB for Google Docs

    Would be great to allow Tabs containing Google Sheets, Docs, and Presentations.

    Additionally a generic iframe Tab.

  13. Power BI - Reload Tab Needs to Work Properly

    The reload tab button on a Power BI Report doesn't do anything. the tab just flashes and it doesn't attempt to pull the newest version of the report, if it is available. This needs to be fixed to avoid having to re-launch teams to fix reports that are stuck with old data.

  15. Conversation pop out

    Option to pop out a chat from the main Teams window has been rolled out. However once a conversation has been popped out, new message to the conversation should appear only in the popped out chat window. At present new notification appears in both popped out window and also the main window so user is bound to check both notification and finds it has been duplicated. Please sort this out.

  16. Pin Channel Tabs in the Teams sidebar

    Currently Channels may be pinned into the Teams sidebar, however tabs within the channels are not able to be pinned.

    As I use Team more and more for workflow and collaboration the extra clicks are a minor frustration.

  17. Ability to pin messages in chats

    I mean "to pin messages" = to make a tab. There is an ability to pin various types of files in chats but there is no ability to do the same for messages.

  18. Open SharePoint & any website in a Tab, when using Teams from Web

    When a URL (any website or SharePoint) is added as a tab in your team, it can only be accessed if you are using the Microsoft Teams desktop or mobile app.

    If you go to https://teams.microsoft.com you will not be able to see that website in your team.

    Please fix this and make it a consistent experience.

  19. Teams for Mac - make left tab bar customisable

    The left side bar shows Activity, Chat, Teams, Meetings and Files by default. Behind the triple dots more like Planner can be accessed, but not be moved "upwards" to get more into focus. Another way is to extend the number of apps shown within the tab bar.
