  1. Chats and Teams should be in the same area

    Separating Chats from Teams chat is very annoying. It necessitates going back and forth. Group chat and individual chats are better to be in the same area

  3. iOS Teams App doesn't add Picture in Files tab

    Using the iOS app. I'm surprised to discover that when you take a picture right in Teams or attach a picture in a reply, the picture/file doesn't get added to the Files tab. Why is this the behavior? Where does the picture get stored?

  5. Schedule darkmode on mobile

    Now that darkmode is available in the mobile app, it would be even better if the setting could be schedulded. Normal mode for daylight hours and darkmode for evening/night time.

  6. Task assignment in wiki and onenote from the teams environment

    Our team would like to be able to :

    1. Assign tasks, and tag team members from within the OneNote environment that is connected to teams.
    2. Assign tasks to team members from within the wiki.

    In both cases if notes from meetings are being logged and an action comes out of the meeting to discussion for team members one could then directly assign a task from the meeting minutes/notes as it is progressing. There is similar features to this in other platforms.

  8. Search on recent

    It would be very useful to be able to search by person and see any recent conversations with them in the recent area.

    At the moment the recent tab doesn't filter nor is it possible to search, which means its very hard to find any recent chat involving the contact.

  10. Add possibility to modify default action when hitting call buton to 'work number'

    To support migrations comming from a traditional PBX like e.g. Cisco, it should be possible to make Teams call the 'work phone number' (=value in the AD attribute 'telephonNumber') by default when hitting the 'call' button. For a bigger number of users, you don't want to migrate everyone at the same time. So in this situation, you don't want to explain to everyone they should look up the phone number and enter this in the numpad instead of clicking the 'call' button. This is an issue when migrated users are calling to non-migrated users who mostly don't have a headset…

  11. More stable admin interface

    It's the third time in 2 weeks that I cannot reach user settings and "org-wide settings" (using the developer tools I see status code 503 for https://admin1e.online.lync.com/OcsPowershellWebservice/Service.svc/OcsTenant?adminDomain=[my tenant name].onmicrosoft.com). The stability of the admin interface (at least the part that is on host admin1e.online.lync.com) seems to be very sub optimal, so you might invest some time to fix that before adding new features.

  12. A few improvements to joining and managing teams

    Two things: Improve the search function, and improve the speed at which teams load when you're trying to join new teams.

    I find oftentimes that searching for teams returns no results, so I end up scrolling down through the list and searching manually for the teams I want to join.

    I also find that when joining new teams in order for all teams to load I have to fullscreen the window. I'm not sure why this is but it's somewhat frustrating.

    Additionally, a minor third note: why are the icons for settings and managing teams identical? Wouldn't it make more…

  13. Make it possible to hide the right side of the Teams UI to just show the contacts list.

    I like to leave my contact list open with a minimal footprint.

  14. Guests cannot preview files (other than Word or Excel) in W10 client

    Guests in a Team cannot preview files other than Word or Excel files in the Windows 10 client or the Android app (I have not been able to test other apps) even though permissions are correct, and guests can edit the file types they cannot preview.

  15. See Chats and Teams while creating a meeting

    Currently when I'm creating a meeting (in progress) I can't access chats and teams. It's not convenient, because I often want to copy paste some details from chats to meeting description. Currently I have to close the meeting and discard all changes to see any chat and get details from it or just discuss with someone meeting details or schedule.

  16. Type a new message / Start new conversation inconsistency

    When going from chat to team conversaiotn, the textbox label for conversations should display "Start new conversation..."
    Instead it displays "Type a message".
    It changes correctly after textBox->Focus(), But it it still misleading.

    Repro step:
    1) Click chat
    2) Click on chat background (or any chat message, or hit escape) to remove focus from textbox.
    3) Click Teams

  17. Calls support in Firefox (Mozilla)

    From our perspective it is really instrumental for people to use Firefox and still join our calls. There are some clients of ours who only use Firefox and we cannot force them to go through hops to join calls (like installing Chrome or Teams just to talk to us once). Please add that support! Thank you very much in advance!

  19. Fix foreign languages characters in notifications email from Teams

    Foreign languages characters in notifications email from Teams doesn't display correctly. E.g. for Norwegian special characters like Æ, Ø and Å, if a user named Bjørn sends a message to another user, the subject of the notification email will be "Bjørn sent a message"
