  1. Filter shifts by members

    Should be able to filter shifts by member. We could have an option to filter by one or more members, so shifts rows would be displayed only for that members filtered. That would be faster to manage more than one team members at the same time, not looking for one by one member as it is today.

  2. Add private channels inside the team

    Add private channels inside the team. If we have a big department some topics may not be interesting for everyone and some can be not for everyone, so when we have team now, inside the team you can only create channels that are visible and accessible for the whole team, but team admin should have the possibility to create private channel inside the team to discuss anything only with the team participants that he/she will invite.

  3. Wiki tab can be removed

    Why the Wiki tab cannot be removed?
    There's alway the error saying:
    We weren't able to remove the Wiki
    There was a problem removing your Wiki. Please check the Wiki and try again.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for your feedback! You can enable our integration with giphy in the admin portal – please reach out to your IT admin to get this great feature! Once it’s enabled, please wait ~15 minutes to see this feature in your app. If you have recently tried this, please try again as we just fixed an issue with this setting.

  7. no remove option on group chat?

    When you build an application, I am not sure why Microsoft always does this with the new applications when ever launched. This shows that Microsoft's testing team is so weak. I am talking about the [CHAT] option (Not the Groups). When you give a option to add multiple members in a group chat, how can you forget about removing the user from the same chat group? I see that this bug has been reporting since so long and MS is not taking care of it since long.

    This is the reason why I always hate using MS products.

  8. Clicking Close Stains Desktop

    When you hover over the "X" to close out of teams, it displays the words "close" under the mouse cursor to let the user know what clicking the "X" will do. Pretty self-explanatory. The only issue, is if you click the "X" before the words "close" are displayed under the cursor, Teams will close, and then the words close will appear where the cursor was, but stay there. They stain the desktop, and regardless of which application you have open, the words close will cover the top right-hand corner of the screen. If you hover over the "X" and allow…

  9. View starts randomly jumping around when attempting to edit a message

    If I've sent a message and then attempt to edit it, my view keeps randomly scrolling/refreshing/attempting to grab old comments and the edit box goes off the bottom of the screen.

    Attached is a gif demonstrating the issue

  10. Hashtags disabled on Mac UK keyboard layout

    It's currently not possible to type a hashtag on a UK mac keyboard layout - the command for this is Option + 3 (it shares a key with 3 and the £ sign on our layout), but in Teams this acts a shortcut to the "Teams" tab.

  11. Auto-detect links

    I posted a link to a site, and it did not automatically convert it to a clickable link. It is extremely important that links be treated as links and made easy to click on for our users. We are a completely virtual company, and we OFTEN share links with each other. Having to highlight and copy and paste into a browser is not efficient.

    Links are recognized in Teams. However, some links do not parse anywhere (in Teams or wherever you’re pasting it). Let me know if you have any questions!

  12. keyboard shortcuts

    I've seen a lot of requests for individual shortcuts, but in my opinion the problem is that there needs to be a structured overhaul of the existing ones.
    There should be categorical prefixes so that remembering shortcuts is easier (this would likely also simplify adding new ones). Navigation, current chat/channel & anything that needs to appear as a modal come to mind for starters.
    Currently, if focus is not where you expect it to be when changing tabs, channels, etc. then C for compose, R for reply, etc. just don't work on the desktop app. The issue is most likely…

    The keyboard shortcuts had an overhaul and were improved for both Windows and Mac. It should make keyboard navigation easier and more natural (how you would expect it to work) than in the past.

    I will flag this topic as complete and I hope you all get to enjoy the shortcut changes that were made.

    Thank you all for the feedback.

    You can now add tables to a Wiki tab! Each table supports all the same formatting options that are available throughout Wiki. You’ll be able to drag and drop lines to resize column width, and you can add or remove new columns and rows quickly from your toolbar.

    Sincerely,

  15. Group Chat Member (20 people plus)

    We have many people on my team and my concern is that there is a limited number of people that you can include in a group chat which opted us to use another app. I would like to maximize the team collaboration in MST that is why messaging is very important to us.

    Hi Kyle,

    Yes, we do support URLs, so they should appear as hyperlinks when you copy and paste them into Teams.

    As you pointed out in your comment, there are a number of URL formats that do not parse. That’s an issue on whatever website you’re pasting from; its not on the part of Teams functionality.

    Let me know if you have any questions on this!

  18. Allow Full Screen Options for Tabs

    The ability to work in full screen on a specific tab. We are adding 'websites' as new tabs, and since these websites have left navigations and the teams have a left pane, it would be nice to work in full screen on a specific tab.
    Also related to expanding/collapsing the left pane in the teams desktop

    Just click the icon in the upper right hand corner (when you’re inside your tab) that looks like two arrows pointing in opposite directions. This will expand your tab.

  19. Allow the hiding of embedded images, animated gifs, videos - like Slack does

    Users can paste/embed large, wild, distracting images, animated gifs, videos, etc, into the conversation window. That is fine, but recipients and senders should be able to later HIDE those, because they're ever-present and very distracting--until the conversation progresses long enough that the distracting images get scrolled out of view.

    Slack allows these to be hidden and it's a very nice feature.

  20. Chat Room Participant Limit and Vote to Kick Feature

    As far as I understood it is hard to assign someone as a Chat Room owner and that is why we cannot kick people out of the chat room. But if you add a feature like voting to kick people out that issue will be sorted. Also please try to increase the participant number in the chat rooms. 20 people limit is a huge issue for some cases, esp when we have no privacy in the Team tab.
