  1. Scheduled Do Not Disturb, like Slack

    Do Not Disturb should block all notifications and I'd love to be able to schedule DND, like on Slack

  2. Scheduled auto-post messages/notifications on channels

    Our teams posts routine updates/notifications on our channel (mainly posting who is the POC for the team on that day). It would be nice if we can schedule a specific message to be posted on specific timings (or even better if customizable messages for different timings) for automation.

    Putting this item under review so we can investigate the scenario. Currently you can use Flow to automate posting. DRI/POC can be maintained in a list or file and message can be sent to Teams channels at designated intervals. For schedules as mentioned you might also consider using the Shifts app inside of Teams. This would provide additional features like shift swapping, activity lists for each shift etc.

  3. Ability to hide or minimize gifs (at user level)

    I like a lot about Teams. However, one of the nice features of your main competitor is that on things like GIFs you can minimize them. GIFs are fun, but after the initial fun they are annoying to keep seeing auto playing in the feed. So a way to minimize them in the feed would be great.

  4. BToE

    We need BToE support with our Polycom deskphones. Without it, we will have to always run Skype for Business side by side to sign in our users to the phones.

  5. Tag Files for Searchability

    As we upload files, it would be great to have the option to add Tags for the files. That way, when utilizing search, we could enter tags to be able to find results based on the tags specified.

  6. Barge, Whisper, Listen In

    I found a similar request for Skype here (https://www.skypefeedback.com/forums/299913-generally-available/suggestions/8900035-monitoring-features-silent-monitor-whisper-bar). I haven't been able to find documentation on implementation of the following so wanted to throw it out there just in case.

    1) Whisper - Managers or supervisors can tell agents what to say (advice or answers) without customer hearing them.

    2) Barge In - Managers or other users can jump on a call without permission from the original user to help with a call (especially useful in call center situations).

    3) Listen - Managers or other users can listen in on a call, given they have the access…

  7. Self-selecting breakout rooms

    Organizers can create different break out rooms for different discussion topics, and meeting attendees can choose which one to go to (maybe by selecting a button at the appropriate time in the meeting)? This would be very useful for teachers or meeting organizers who want to give attendees choices without needing to preassign attendees or trying to sort attendees into the appropriate groups once meetings have started. In our case, we had Back to School Night for parents, and parents had a hard time using the different links to go to the presentations they wanted to see (similar to the…

  8. Relax browser support check

    The current browser support check is too pessimistic and prevents some modern browsers from loading Microsoft Teams. For example, up-to-date Chrome on Ubuntu Linux is not considered a supported browser, even though changing the User-Agent string to Chrome on Windows allows Teams to load without any problems.

    Please consider a) just letting the browser try to load Teams, b) using feature detection instead of the User-Agent string, or c) blacklisting known broken browsers instead of whitelisting if the User-Agent string is used.

  9. Change the colour of Teams, the default purple is deterring everyone from even trying it, and refusing to move from Slack

    Basically anything but purple or variant of it
    Personally i like green, but variant of blue will also do

  10. moving a document breaks link

    When we are sorting out our filing system in files, creating new folders to move and tidy up our document's this changes the location of the document and breaks any links you have previously sent to users also the link in the conversations. This is extremely unworkable for our organisation, we need to be able to upload and move documents. keeping the integrity of any previous links sent. For example if you attach a document to a channel, this does not go into a folder it just sits in files, when links are sent round for this document they are…

  11. Assigning a non-member to a task in planner adds them to the Team

    If you assign a person a task in planner who isn't a member of the team, they automatically get added to the team. There is a message which says non-member but I don't think this is clear enough.

    There should be another warning/pop up telling the user that if they assign a task to someone not on the team they will get added to the team. This is a security concern!

  13. Allow to post a reply to a conversation via REST

    Currently it is quite easy to start a conversation via the webhook of a channel.

    It would be great if the POST of this webhook would return an conversation id. This id could then be used in a subsequent request to reply to the initial conversation.

    Thank you for your continued feedback. The feature team is reviewing this ask and working on a solution for team templates without content, as well as considering ways to create teams from template with content (i.e. files, etc.). We will share an update as soon as one is available.

  17. Add location AD to search capability

    Currently in Skype you can search for individuals by location from AD, then you can select a user based a search results. Very helpful to find individuals at a specific location and/or department -- would like to see this feature enabled in Teams. Currently you have to know exactly who you are trying to IM in advance.

  18. Make Subject line visible by default on new conversations

    When starting a NEW conversation in a Channel, the subject line should be displayed by default and not hidden underneath the rich text expand button. Subject lines are very useful not only to let people know what that conversation is about, but also for searching later to return to the conversation after it has scrolled away some. We've enforced this on a few times internally using the honor system and have seen considerable success with keeping conversations on topic and getting people using the threading features.

    You wouldn't send an email without a Subject would you? Why should Teams be…

  19. Do NOT reorder messages based on replies

    If a message has replies, Teams changes the order of messages so that the original message takes on the timestamp of the latest reply.

    DO. NOT. DO. THAT.

    It is horribly flow-breaking to have the original conversation reordered based on later replies. This is totally unnecessary. The Activity feed can help me quickly jump to "new" posts regardless of their location in the channel order.

  20. Integrate Delve Profiles in Teams

    Make Delve Profiles (own Profile and that of others) available in Teams and include profile content in Teams-Search.

    Delve Profiles are good fo showing skills and projects of our employees.

    But the Profiles and there information are not accessible in Teams which breaks our usecase.
