  1. Block change picture

    In Skype for Business we were able to prevent users from uploading pictures for their avatar. This was done from a PowerShell script that modified the OWA policy. We should have the same option with Teams. Hopefully in UI instead of PS.

  2. Copying text - hovering menu hides the end of the text

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

  3. User customizable left navigation

    The far left navigation panel seems to have a whole lot of blank space just calling out to be filled with things, and there is plenty of functionality within Teams that could be put there so users could reach it faster. That big gap between Files and Feedback is wasted space!

    You should let individual users decide what goes in this space by giving them the ability to pin additional things they want there. I use the 'Saved' functionality a lot for example. It would be nice to have it out there only one click away. Perhaps I think a…

    Users can now pin their personal apps right where they can readily access them – on the Teams app bar. Simply find the app, right-click the icon, and select “pin”. Even after you navigate away, the app icon will remain so you can easily return to it. You can also customize your app bar further by dragging and dropping apps to your desired position, or unpinning apps.

    This feature is in addition to the Teams Admin’s ability to establish tenant-wide policies for the apps that appear on everyone’s Teams app bar.

  4. Automatic DND when presenting

    Automatically set status to Do Not Disturb/DND when presenting or sharing screen like on Skype. It's very inconvenient when banners for personal chat notifications come up during meetings, sometimes the content is not to be shared with others. If not that then allow for the option to not show actual text in the banner notifications.

    Status is automatically set to Presenting in Teams when screen sharing is started during a Teams meeting.

    For other suggestions mentioned in the comments, please follow the following UserVoice items:

    - Mute notifications when on a video or audio call: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/40228330
    - Respect focus assist: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16950997

    Thanks.

  5. 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!

  6. Customize Sidebar

    I would really like the ability to choose which apps go in the sidebar. It just makes sense.

  7. Video feeds from meeting participants should be at the top of the screen -- not the bottom

    To create the feeling of "eye contact" it is ideal if all meeting participants are looking more or less in the direction of their camera while conversing with each other. Ideally, when a user is looking at their fellow meeting participant's video feed, it should appear as if the user is looking directly into the camera.

    However, because the video feeds are at the bottom of the screen in Teams, everyone in the meeting usually appears as if they are looking down, instead of at the camera.

    Therefore, the video feeds should appear at the top of each user's screen,…

  8. Upload files into directly into folders in Teams on iOS app

    A requested feature in Teams on iOS device is the ability to upload files directly to folders in Teams. At this time, you may upload files in the conversation tab, but it will be uploaded directly in the root of the team. In what I request, you should be able to access the Teams file archive, go to the folder where you want to upload the file and then upload.

    The picture shows where I'd love to have an "attach a file"-button.

  9. 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:

  10. Meeting Call Me Back Number

    After entering a meeting, if you would like Teams to call you back you need to enter a phone number in the Call Me Back box. (See attached file.) It would be great if this box would remember the last number called and there was a user setting to save a default number. This would save you from having to enter in the number every single time.

  11. 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

  13. 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.

    This is done rolling out and you should all be able to use this function in your Teams now. Ping me at sparavi (at) Microsoft (dot) com if you have any questions!

  14. 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

  17. Expand emojis to reflect the diversity of ethnicity, gender, sexuality and disability of your user base

    Emoji set is limited and almost exclusively white and male. This doesn't reflect the make up of most modern workplaces and certainly doesn't reflect the make up of your global user base.

  18. Teams Presence should be 'real-time'.

    Having presence delays of up to 4 minutes makes presence largely useless. Having to resort back to typing 'are you free now' after calls, because I can't tell if they are still in the meeting, or have started another meeting or call. Or trying to call somebody and get rejected and a message saying "I'm in a call"

    The presence of Teams users has switched to a subscription based model that brings near real time updates! Most of the time we expect presence updates to be reflected in a matter of a few seconds. It’s true for all scenarios like user’s calendar update, the Teams app status, or what the user decides to set manually. Enjoy!

  19. Option to disable voice calls on mobile app

    Now that we have moved voice from Skype for Business to Teams, and since I am part of a response group; I need a way how to disable voice calls on the mobile app. When I receive call to the response group, my mobile phone also rings. If I ma using my computer there is no need for my mobile phone to ring.
    We use Teams mobile to always be in the loop regarding company matters, It would be nice to have a feature to disable all incoming calls on the mobile app.

  20. 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.
