  1. Add other Sharepoint document folders under Files

    Please allow adding granular SharePoint document library subfolders to the Files tab. Currently, only the document library level can be added, not sub folders.

    This allows adding content from related but separate SharePoint sites without having to provide the entire document library (which may contain irrelevant content to the Team)

    • Skype integration (Consumer Federation)

      It would be nice to integrate public Skype (not Skype for Business) into Teams. I am able to chat with Skype for business users within my organization but when working with external clients I still have to go back to public Skype. If I could even just simply chat and call with Skype users as well that would allow me to use Teams as my sole communication platform.

        • Add team wide reminders

          We have weekly bot reminders currently on Slack and that would be a big advantage to getting our whole team moved over.

          For example:
          - Tuesdays at noon: Reminder - team meeting in 30 minutes
          - Last Friday of month: Finish submitting hours
          - etc....

          • Support for http and not only https

            Only possible to use HTTPS urls as tabs. Would be nice if HTTP would work as well.

            • Sort conversations so the latest posts are at the top rather than bottom

              Messages currently come in with latest content at the bottom of the page. Would be good to be able to re-sort so the conversations with the most recent traffic are at the top. Also, move the "Start a new conversation" to the top so that its clear you're adding a new conversation and not responding to a prior thread (we have a lot of newbies who don't use the "reply" because the compose bar is on the bottom, and thus end up creating a bunch of new threads accidentally).

              Conversations in Groups starts at the top and forces old ones…

                Hi everyone, thanks so much for this request.

                We have thought this through and decided to prioritize other user-requested items, so this one has been declined. But please don’t stop telling us what you want, because we’re still working to get many of those done. We’re listening and appreciate your support and patience.

                When granting access a Security group or Distribution list to a Team. Changes to the security groups/DL does not apply. If a user leaves the company or if we have new users, it is a manual process to add or remove them from a Team. Since we can select a Security group or Distribution list, changes to either should be reflected on the Team members.

                • 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.

                  • 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…

                    • Show video for all people in Video meeting

                      Currently when in a video chat it only shows the active video for the last 4 people that have spoken in the chat. On the bottom bar it shows icons for all those in the chat. If it could show small video for all those in the chat that have their cameras turned on it would be beneficial. Then everyone on the video conference can see the reactions of others, whether they were the last to speak or not.

                      This is a problem with most video chatting applications. Google Hangouts it the only one we have found that shows video…

                      • Using Teams Offline

                        MULTIPLE USERS reporting offline needs:

                        ---

                        Generally want to use Teams offline:

                        If I am offline it would be great to browse through Teams and Channels in case I have to lookup some informations.

                        Also viewing the latest notes in "Notes" on teams would be great.

                        It would be enough to have "Read only" - for the moment my Teams app does not even open when I am offline

                        Compared on my mobile - I can read all posts while I am offline.

                        ---

                        Edit while offline:

                        just been using teams wiki to take and share notes in a meeting.…

                          • Sharepoint tab linked to a list, a library or even a specific view

                            At present, when adding a SharePoint tab, you can only link to a site. Since sites may be shared among several teams, team members will still have to browse the site to find material relevant for the actual channel. It would be nice if a tab could pull up a specific custom list, library or even a specific view of a library. That would keep stuff on the site in context for that particular channel.

                              • Developer API to read/create teams and channels in them.

                                Slack has dev api to list teams/channels and perform bunch of management operations. It would be great if there's something similar available in Microsoft Teams as well.

                                  • 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.

As one user puts it: "On the Windows 10 desktop client it is nearly impossible to copy multiple messages from the chat history. A fraction of a second after letting go of the mouse, the highlight collapses down to a single message."

                                      2. Can't paste in general: "Copy & Paste is tempermental, when i try to paste text in from other sources it simply doesn't paste, but then if I only copy a few (3-6) words then it does. It…
