  2. Make public channel private

    It would be nice to convert some of our already established channels to private now the feature is available in the same way it may be desired to de-classify a private channel to public at some point too.

    Currently a channel privacy can only be set during creation.

    Thank you for your feedback! The team has reviewed this request and has added it to our backlog for both Standard (Public) to Private and Private to Standard (Public) channel conversion. We will share an update as soon as it’s available.

  3. Create Planner tabs within Private Channels

    We have just started using Private Channels, which is great as our team has sub teams within it and this way we can have private discussions, without creating multiple teams.

    What we'd also like to do is create Planner Plans within the Private Channels that are only accessible to those within the Private Channel. Is this on the roadmap?

  4. MS Teams Meeting Delegation

    For a meeting scheduled using Teams, it would be great to be able to delegate the organizer role so that someone else can reschedule the meeting during my absence. For instance for Executive Assistants or PTO.

  5. Open in Word/Excel/PowerPoint as Default

    It would be great if Teams would have the ability to always launch the desktop app when opening Office documents as opposed to launching the online version.

    Rest of teams is awesome.

    Thank you for your continued feedback. The feature team is actively working on this feature as well as doing work to give users the choice to open Word/Excel/PowerPoint files by default in Browser, Office app or inside the Teams app. We will share an update here as soon as one is available.

  6. Multiple People Screen Sharing Option

    Allow multiple people to share their screen at one time, similar to how hangout does it.

  7. Open links to teams in Desktop App

    SITUATION: When you receive a link to a Teams file or folder, or really anything in Teams, like a Planner task - it sends you to the sharepoint site, regardless of whether you have the Desktop App installed and even if it is open.

    RESOLUTION: Make links to any Teams elements open directly in the Teams Desktop App

    This will save so much time and frustration from people, and also make Teams seem like a more integrated solution for everyone.

  9. Channel only members & guests

    Channel only members enable collaboration with people outside the team in a specific channel, without granting them access to the team itself.  The channel member could be someone in your organization, or external to your organization (guest).

  10. Support to host a meeting in a Private Channel

    Hi there, I've setup a private channel in a Team for supervisors only. I'd like to "host" the regular staff meeting in the private channel, but i can only select "public" channels. Can Microsoft add the ability to host Team meetings within a private channel?

  12. Change which Tab is default landing page for a Team and/or Channel

    Right now the conversation tab is the default landing page for a Team and/or Channel.
    I want to be able to have a SharePoint site landing page in a tab and that tab be the default tab open when you navigate to a team or channel.

    Think of it like a landing page for that team. You may not want it to drop right into Conversations. If you can have a SharePoint page with a Microsoft Teams conversations web part, you get the best of both worlds.
    I can see a lot of scenarios where you'd want the chat window…

  14. Integrate tasks in planner with Outlook Tasks & Calendar

    Every time you create a task in planner via Microsoft Teams and assign it to someone in your organisation/team it would be nice to see that task in outlook as well. I want to know and to be alerted that I have a task assigned to me without having to lon on to Microsoft Teams.
    It would be great to have a place to see how many tasks have been created in a team/channel and the status of each one.

  15. URL shortener for Teams

    When using the "get link" option in teams it would be better to have an embedded link shortener. Pasting the link in email looks terrible.

  16. Allow users to customize away presence timeout

    Allow users to customize away presence timeout like the options in the Skype client. Add: Show me inactive when my computer has been idle for this many minutes. Also Add: Change my status from inactive to Away after this many minutes.

  17. Read Only channel

    Would like to create a Public/announcements Read Only channel so that only specified members can post. This allows for authorized personnel to make company announcements, but not everyone can post.

    (The request for a Public Announcement channel is complete, since the General channel can be controlled by admins and set to read only)

    on the backlog  ·  Warren responded

    Due to a priority shift this request has slipped to the backlog. I hate to bring bad news. I will continue to provide the feature team your feedback and votes.
    Hopefully this will move back up in the queue soon.

  18. Video screen size when sharing screen

    When video chatting and sharing your screen, the video window is very small and you can't resize it.

    When you are in an active meeting and have video and screen sharing enable:
    1. Able to resize video preview
    2. Able to use multiple monitors with video on one and screen share on the other.
    3. Able to move the video around the screen freely.
    4. Overlay video on full screen screenshare.
    5. Able to freely resize your split screen with video and screenshare.

    Thank you for your continued feedback, we have not forgotten about this ask. We have a feature on the backlog for popping out content, so you will be able to see one screen with the video gallery and one screen with the shared content. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

    For the separate feature ask for full screen option, please upvote and comment at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/41277121

  19. Create Team from existing SharePoint site, and other requests

    1 User Request on SharePoint:

    Enable integration of Microsoft Teams to an existing SharePoint site rather than to always create a new site collection

    There have been a few ideas raised on integrating lists, OneNote, document libraries, etc. from an existing SharePoint site with Microsoft Teams, but in summary, it will be best if we could create a team upon on existing site, so that the "Files" and "Notes" tabs would directly reference the existing document library and OneNote in SharePoint. It does not make sense to have two separate sites: one for all the usual SharePoint stuff, and another…
