  2. pop-out chat

    Allow the entire Chat functionality to pop out rather than just individual chats. This allows a user to dual pane between Chats & Teams. Essentially, you can hold your chat "buddy list" outside of Teams so that you can chat with multiple threads while still having Teams open on workflow.

  4. Option to open conversation in pop out window / tab in the channel

    HI,

    When looking at a conversation, If i want to see something that happened a while back, I need to keep clicking on "see previous messages".. which gets messy. Especially as the conversation jumps around when other conversations are updated.

    Suggestion to have a "pop-out" / "pin" button, on each conversation, that will open it in a pop-up window / a tab at the top of the channel, Which allows you to see only that conversation in its entirety?

    On a conversation thread with 249 messages, I had to click "see previous messages" 12 times, to see the first reply.…

  6. Selectively mark messages as read

    When I come back to the office after several days off I have a lot of unread Teams messages. Reviewing them is a challenge because there is no way to easily mark a thread as partially viewed. I start reviewing a thread, move on to something else, then have to figure out where in the thread I was.

    This is one area where email has an advantage. With email, the application only marks messages as "read" that I explicitly open. I think there should be a special "bulk read" mode for Teams that forces the user to acknowledge each…

  7. "go to"

    please add a Go to... feature that allows you to go to a date within a chat thread rather than having to scroll up from Now to 6 months ago because that is when the conversation happened. if a user could at least GO to June 1, 2017 and start scrolling from there it would be much better.

  10. Notify Team Members

    Notify all members of a team when new channels are created or threads are added to conversations. Having to @mention everyone on the team is a hassle.

  11. Mention in a private Team should behave as mention in private Yammer

    Mention (i.e. @<name>) in private Team chat behaves differently than mention in a private Yammer chat (private chat or group); is that intentional or a bug?

    I was learning Yammer and testing to see what happens when you mention someone from a private chat and a private group.

    o For a private chat, it adds the user to the thread and they have access to the entire thread, including posts before they were added.
    o For a private group, it adds them to the thread (with access to previous posts), but does not add them to the group. It presents a…

  12. Ensure delete chat is programmed asap

    Having chats between two or more people that cannot be deleted is compromising my business.

    This must be allowed soon otherwise we will remove teams completely for security reasons.

    Skype for business allowed this and no "rules " have changed.

    All other chat software allows deletion of individual messages or entire threads.

    I do not give microsoft permission to store my chats without consent or ability to archive/delete in admin function

  13. Improve audio notifications

    VOLUME: The sound is too low!! Most people don't think it's even on. Let us customize the sound level, please.

    UNIQUE SOUNDS FOR CALLS VS CHATS/MESSAGES: Right now sounds are all or nothing. This is not good. For example, you may want to have sound for Calls but not for chat or messages. There is a difference when you need to hear that someone is calling you – versus getting the constant bing/bing/bing on message chat.

    UNIQUE SOUND FOR PRIVATE CHAT: It would be nice to have different sounds for private chat and notifications, so that its easy to know…

    When copying text from a message, the ending of the message is hidden by the "More Options" hover.

  15. show profile photo of all members of a chat group

    Show profile photo/initials of all members in a chat group at the top where the menu options for the thread are, rather than just the owner/creator of the thread. Makes it easier to see who your audience is - with so many chat groups it's easy to say something to a wider audience than you intended.

  16. Share more information with us, please!

    "How can you make Microsoft Teams better?"
    > This is no technical feature..


    1. More updates on top X ideas. More interaction with the people who are using the App. People who take the effort to post/vote ideas feel left out if you stop providing updates or don't respond at all. This is not just a forum that can exist without a moderator. This is an enterprise corperation's official UserVoice site. Meaning, no voice of the corporation = bad


    2. Provide an up to date roadmap. The current roadmap is great, it looks nice (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=Microsoft%20Teams%2CLaunched). Sadly most uservoice ideas with…

  18. Missing Skype for Business functionality

    Contacts dis not come over. I had to search or enter manually. Call logging is now an extra app? Not cool. Conversations used to saved in Outlook. Not anymore. Searching for the start of a thread takes longer now.

  19. Increase duration for desktop notifications

    The channel/team on which the notification has been made should stay more/better/longer visible so that you won't miss one.

    Once support for Windows 10 native notifications is released, users who choose to use Windows notifications will be able to utilize Windows OS specific settings for the length of time to display notifications. Mac does not have an OS specific setting, so will not have the support.

  20. Need read receipts

    Mobile working, Asynchronous working of teams is a common phenomena. Read receipts let us know if the message has been seen, so we know it can be acted on. Critical when large numbers of the team are mainly mobile workers.
