  2. Markdown support

    In slack I can format my message by using markdown.
    See get.slack.help/hc/en-us/articles/202288908-...

    That also allows me to have some kind of code highlighting.
    This feature is really cool for teams discussing technical subjects.

    Markdown is here!

    For those who want to be able to format text on the fly or collaborate on code, markdown has finally arrived. Now, you’ve got a quick, easy way to perform the following actions:

    add asterisks to either end of some text to make it bold
    underscore the beginning and end of some text in order to make it italic
    add a tilde before and after your text to strike through
    Add a double pound sign (##) before your text to create a Header
    Type [text](URL) to create a hyperlink within a message
    To start a bulleted list, preface your text with an asterisk (*) or a hyphen (-)
    To start a numbered list, preface your text with
    To create a block quote, just add a right-hand bracket (>) before your text
    Even better, our markdown syntax includes support for code:

    To add an inline block…

  3. Use existing Planner or Group to build Team

    Maybe this is in there, but we have a number of Office 365 Groups it would be nice to make a team out of. I got to make a team the very first time out of a group for one, but I don't see a way of making a team out of an existing Group and auto-adding those members. It would be nice if it tied to the existing Planner--I don't want to make new teams or groups, but use the existing ones....

    Sorry folks, I totally missed this one thought it’s been done for a while now, as some of you have figured out.

    How to use an existing Planner to build a Team: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Planner-Blog/Bringing-a-Plan-into-Microsoft-Teams/ba-p/57463

    And for Groups, when you are creating a new Team, you’ll see a paragraph at the bottom of the “Create a Team” form box that gives you an option to select an existing group.

    Please note that you must be the ADMIN of the Planners and Groups you are trying to build a Team upon.

    Thanks and let me know if you have any questions, and sorry I let this one pass me!

    Sincerely,
    Suphatra

  4. Mute a channel - (Mute Chat is complete)

    I'd love to keep groups/channels in my list, but mute a channel so I don't get those. I get notified whenever some tags a channel eg @General, it's super distracting!

    Also would like the possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received for a user that chooses to mute some group chat.

    Muting both a channel and a chat are now available to the public.

    When you mute a channel, you will continue to get notifications for the following:
    - @Team mentions in that channel
    - Replies and reactions to conversations which you have taken part in that channel
    - @Channel mention of other channels in that muted channel

    What you will stop receiving notifications for are:
    - All new posts in that channel
    - Replies to those posts in that channel
    - @Channel mentions of that channel

    To mute a particular channel,
    - Go to the channel overflow menu (triple dot) and choose “Channel notifications”
    - Select “Off” for all the menu options you see in that “Channel notifications” dialog box

    Thanks!

  5. More than 20 participants in a chat

    We would like to use group chats for conversations that are not team/work related. However, the 20 participant limit keeps us from using the feature to it's full extent. Please increase the participant limit for group chats from 20 to 100.

  6. Remove the need to constantly log in

    Something has changed, but over the past 2 weeks, each time I reboot, or even resume from sleep, I'm presented with the SSO/ADFS signin page within Teams. As most users don't even notice this, most remain perpetually logged out, defeating the purpose of Teams.

    The restore the deleted channel is available. Here is the release note snip.

    Restore a deleted channel

    You’re now able to restore any channel you deleted up to 21 days after taking action (click Manage team then open the Channels tab to get started). Anyone can do this by default, but there’s a team setting that restricts restoring and deleting channels to team owners only.

    Since the restore channel is available I will flag this one completed.

    However, we are still working on the issue with SharePoint folder names not being synced after deleting or renaming. The UV topic tracking the SharePoint issue can be found at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16927219-re-using-the-same-channel-name

  9. full screen only one person from the call

    On a call with more than 2 persons, unless someone is actually presenting his/her screen, the screen is usually split between the others on the call. Its always a split screen, up to four seperate window. But if someone uses its web cam, lets say to show us a white board... we can't make that specific person's web cam presentation full screen.

    This is completed.

    The up arrow to edit the last message only works in chat or specific reply chains.

    This does not work in the command box.

    If you feel this isn’t working correctly or should work differently please let us know by contacting TeamsML@microsoft.com

    Thank you!

  12. Improve Install options - Install for all users and install location

    Hi there,

    I would like to be able to install for all users of a PC via and MSI, the current installer installs into the users Appdata which means each user has to install manually.

    I would like to see a "proper" installer than loads it to Program Files for all users

  13. screenshare without audio

    In Skype for Business it's possible to share your screen without using the audio feature. This is important for us, because we use a different conf bridge. Using Skype/Teams audio in that scenario just gets in the way (echo, unwanted audio through PC, etc).

    Bottom line, it would be nice to be able to share your screen in Teams without using the voice/audio feature.

    I have confirmed with the feature team that this is, in fact, functioning as you expect today – you can share your entire desktop or a specific window directly from a private chat session, without starting audio or video. The mute microphone button is enabled so you are able to easily add audio by “unmuting”, but we realize this is causing confusion. We are working on further experience improvements.

    Please feel free to respond to teamsml@microsoft.com if you are still seeing issues.

    Thanks,
    Alex

  14. Notification for connectors

    I am not getting any notification when a connector post to a channel. For example a JIRA post to a channel, I would like to get notified by this.

    This is checked on Windows 10 Mobile app.

    Its here! Thanks for all your patience on this feature as we worked out the kinks and got it out the door. Connector notifications are now live and there is no additional configuration you need to do to enable them. If you follow a channel, you should already be seeing notifications trigger for messages posted by connectors to those channels. If not, go ahead and follow a channel with a connector in it to see it in action. Please let us know if you run into an issues and we hope this helps your teams work more efficiently!

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    To get notifications for your connectors, just click on any channel that you want to follow and select the ellipses next to the channel name. Then choose “Follow channel”.

    Please make sure you have your notifications setting set to actually GIVE you notifications! To do that, click on your avatar…

  16. Visual notification in systray of unread message (for both Mac and PC)

  20. Add "What's happening today?" Status

    Skype for Business has a "What's happening today?" custom status under their name which users can write custom messages such as "Teleworking" or "At Lunch". Teams should have this also.
