  3. Wiki import & export

    Please allow wikis to be exportable/importable. This would let us re-use content and backup/restore if a wiki gets messed up.

  7. Importance of various Teams

    To have the ability to tag different teams with different levels of importance, which corresponds with a different type of activity notification.

    The reasoning for this is that I'm a member of 30+ teams and I get notifications on all these teams, I'd like to see the notifications for the 5 most important teams more clearly.

  8. import onenotes

    It would be really nice if there was an easy way to import OneNote's into the Teams app. In my experience, the current process is clunky and slow. I ended up just copying over all the pages.

  9. Chat - Contacts - merge contact lists and drag/drop contacts from list to list

    In this suggest a feature portal the Category dropdown should include the options "Chat" and "Contacts".

    There should be a way to merge contact groups in Chat Contacts. Users should also be able to drag and drop contacts from one to group to another.

  10. Mark Task as Both Important AND Urgent

    We should have the ability to mark a task as BOTH Urgent AND Important so we can better prioritize our day. This would be a huge benefit for anyone who uses the Urgent/Important quadrant/matrix to plan their day (the "Eisenhower Matrix").
    https://www.mindtools.com/pages/article/newHTE_91.htm
    If you could do that, then you could add a view to show tasks in the quadrants of Urgent/Not Urgent/Important/Not Important

  11. Conversation History for all contacts not visible in the chats.

    The chat has "Recent" and "Contacts" abut the recent does not show you all the people you had talked , it just shows last few. There should be a place where i can see the entire list of chats I have had with anyone on Teams whether part of my contacts or not. Its important, sometimes you do not remember the name of the person to search for and get the conversation history.

  13. Import only then planning for one member

    When I have a team with many members, It would be nice if we could import the member-specific planning and not the overall planning when we import the planning in Outlook. And also when we import the global planning from planner, it would be nice to have different colors to differenciate the different member.

  15. Import groups from Yammer.

    Although it is somewhat cannibalistic, there should be a way to import groups and group members from Yammer into similarly structured teams

  20. Select multiple contacts for chat from Contacts panel

    Allow users to select more than one contact from the Contacts Panel to include in a chat rather than laboriously having to add each individual contact, one at a time, for each and every group chat.
