  1. A Brown Hand (instead of just the yellow)

    Hello, it's 2017. Teams needs to start supporting multiple skin colors in emoji. Why is the default for thumbs-up, shaking hands, and all other "realistic" emoji still white?

    These little things matter, especially now that Teams is available in Office 365 Education tenants. Our young students deserve to see emoji that represent them. Slack is way ahead of Teams on inclusive design: https://medium.com/@uxdiogenes/just-a-brown-hand-313db35230c5

  2. ability to join meeting by calling me instead of using computer mic & speakers

    Like with Skype PSTN Conferencing, let me join the meeting by calling me instead of using computer mic & speakers. The way Teams works today, I have to manually mute my mic and my speakers, and then call out to my phone. It would also be nice to be able to select from a list of frequently called numbers, so I don't have to type in the whole number every time.

    We are pleased to announce general availability of 5,000 member teams. Starting today, all new and existing teams can accommodate up to 5,000 members, double the previous limit. Larger groups can now collaborate effortlessly in a single team and leaders can connect with a broad audience within their organization.

    Thanks for the feedback, and for being great Teams users!

  4. Files in Teams should be Files in Office 365 Group the team was created from

  5. Fully support OneNote notebooks

    The current support for notes is HORRIBLE. Here's why:
    1. It doesn't show the full contents of OneNote notebooks after they are edited in OneNote (the Windows client).
    2. It claims to be OneNote, but it doesn't sync with the mobile OneNote app.

    To elaborate on #1, here's an example to reproduce the problem:

    1. Create a new OneNote page in the notes section of a channel.
    2. Select "Edit in OneNote".
    3. When the note opens in OneNote, click the tab within OneNote to "Add new section".
    4. Add some text to the "Untitled page" in the new section.

    Full OneNote support was released a couple months back and it looks like this topic missed getting updated.

    Thank you all for your feedback and suggestions!

  6. Allow email notifications for more notification types

    More options on notifications. Would be better if all notifications had an email option. Could easily be done via a check box next to how you would like to be notified. This applies to everything; team notifications, personal mentions, chats, etc. A lot in my organization have complained about missing things because there is not an option of email for most notifications.

  7. Save audio / video devices

    On each meeting I have to re-select my audio and video devices. It would be good of those would stick, or if there a settings option to control that.

  8. Right To Left Support

    I hope that unlike every other Office product, we won't have to wait for years before decent Right to Left languages are supported.

    Please add RTL by default!

  9. Allow meeting participants to mute each other or mute all

    This is a feature of Google Hangouts we use all the time. When someone is in a noisy environment, has a mic/speaker setup that causing feedback, or is banging on their keyboard, they don't always realize it, and it's very useful for someone else to be able to mute the participant who is causing a disruptive amount of noise but not speaking.

    Hi everyone!
    Got some great news to share this feature request is now live to the public!

    Mute someone in a meeting

    Mute individual meeting participants straight from the meeting roster to cut down on background noise. If someone has been muted, they’ll get a notification letting them know. They’ll be able to unmute themselves if they need to chime in.

    Mute everyone in a meeting

    If you ever need to mute all the other participants in a meeting, head to your meeting roster and select Mute all. Each individual will get a notification and be able to unmute themselves if they need to.

    Thank you all for the great feedback. We will continue to improve Teams and your feedback is key part in our efforts.

  10. Enable Notification for group chats

    Currently we get notifications only for one-to-one chats and not for group chats. Pls enable notifications for group chats also..

  11. Prevent Team Members from deleting channels

    Right now any team member can delete a channel, we need a feature to prevent deletion, or only allow deletion of a channel by its owner, or creator.

    You can do this by removing the permission to delete channel from team members. To do this, go to the web browser version of teams as an ‘Owner’ and selecting the menu on the Team > View Team > Settings > and then de-slect the “Delete Channels” option.

    Thanks to the user Stephen who already provided these instructions a couple months ago.

  13. New Notifications email message

    Currently when we receive an email notification it just says this person sent a message but it would be nice if you could see what the message is when you are offline.

    Hey guys, sorry for the double email on this. I got some details wrong. Whoops! Let me start over…

    A few months ago, you provided this feedback. We went and created this feature. Now you can see the time and date stamps in the product. Yay!

    Note: When a message is sent on the same day, you won’t see the date (unless you hover) — you’ll only see the time. After the same day, you’ll see a timestamp of the exact date and time.

    Ping me if you have questions on this! See contact info below.

  16. Import Shifts schedule from Excel/CSV

    Shifts already has export schedule in UI. It would be great to have a option to import schedule as well, so it could be prepared in a external (legacy) system and then easily imported using UI, without need to develop code for upcoming Graph API.
    This would also make possible to create a shift "template" that could be easily uploaded to new Shifts / groups.

  17. SSO using ADFS / AzureAD

    Is there a way to have the desktop app not prompt for credentials? We use ADFS and AzureAD and opening the Teams Desktop App requires an email address and password instead of just passing it through?

    This has been done for a while now — just click the “Repeat” button when you’re in the meeting creation pop-up.

  20. Links to Channels in Public Teams don't work

    Links to Channels in Public Teams don't work. If you click a link to a Channel in a Public Team that you've not yet joined, the link does not work. This was a feature just added to the April 26, 2017 update on Windows (release note below).
