  1. 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.

  2. screenshare without audio

    In Skype for Business it's possible to share your screen without using the audio feature. This is important for us, because we use a different conf bridge. Using Skype/Teams audio in that scenario just gets in the way (echo, unwanted audio through PC, etc).

    Bottom line, it would be nice to be able to share your screen in Teams without using the voice/audio feature.

    I have confirmed with the feature team that this is, in fact, functioning as you expect today – you can share your entire desktop or a specific window directly from a private chat session, without starting audio or video. The mute microphone button is enabled so you are able to easily add audio by “unmuting”, but we realize this is causing confusion. We are working on further experience improvements.

    Please feel free to respond to teamsml@microsoft.com if you are still seeing issues.

    Thanks,
    Alex

  3. Non Persistent VDI

    Support for Non-Persistent VDI. Currently Teams desktop App installs in the user App folder this means it can't be placed on the base image of non persistent VDI environments.

    Are there any plans to provide an alternative install for VDI. Currently we are installing Teams at login for VDI users as a work around.

  4. Notification for connectors

    I am not getting any notification when a connector post to a channel. For example a JIRA post to a channel, I would like to get notified by this.

    This is checked on Windows 10 Mobile app.

    Its here! Thanks for all your patience on this feature as we worked out the kinks and got it out the door. Connector notifications are now live and there is no additional configuration you need to do to enable them. If you follow a channel, you should already be seeing notifications trigger for messages posted by connectors to those channels. If not, go ahead and follow a channel with a connector in it to see it in action. Please let us know if you run into an issues and we hope this helps your teams work more efficiently!

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    To get notifications for your connectors, just click on any channel that you want to follow and select the ellipses next to the channel name. Then choose “Follow channel”.

    Please make sure you have your notifications setting set to actually GIVE you notifications! To do that, click on your avatar…

  5. Respect Focus Assist

    Teams should respect Windows Focus Assist settings. I'm not even sure how apps are allowed to override Windows settings like this.
    I put Windows Focus Assist into Alarms Only mode so I could record screen captures and I Teams kept popping up notifications over my application. I had to completely exit Teams so I could finish my task.

  6. Visual notification in systray of unread message (for both Mac and PC)

    When there is an unread message, it would be very helpful if the systray icon could have a visual indicator that something is unread.

  7. Get a link to a conversation

  9. delete recorded meeting

    There is no way to delete a meeting that has been recorded in a channel. There have been a couple of times that I have started and ended one realizing I was in the wrong channel or that I didn't give it a title or topic name.

  11. Hyperlink any text in chat

    Allow any text to be selected and a hyperlink added to it, both using Ctrl+K (standard across Office applications) and by providing a hyperlink button in the expanded compose box.

    You can now hyperlink any text.

    To do so click on the “A” icon just under the compose box, this will expand the compose box.
    From the expanded view, you can type the text you wish, select the text then click the chain icon at the top of the compose box.
    This will allow you to add a hyperlink to the selected text. You may also enter the text into “text to display” field in this pop up box.

    Thank you for the suggestions and keep that feedback coming!

  13. Add "What's happening today?" Status

    Skype for Business has a "What's happening today?" custom status under their name which users can write custom messages such as "Teleworking" or "At Lunch". Teams should have this also.

  14. Configure app start up behavior

    It would be great if I can decide how the app starts up, like start up at boot but minimized, start up at boot maximized, do not start up at boot, etc..

    Switching status to “completed” from “We have this”.

    Hi everyone,

    We do have this feature!
    In order to have the Teams application start in the background you will need to set these two items.

    Under Settings, within Teams, you need to select both of these options:
    1) Auto-start application
    2) Open application in background

    If those two are selected, upon restart of the OS when you first login in, the Team app should start in the background and only appear in hidden application bar and not on the main Taskbar.

    Please NOTE: If you exit the Teams application, then click the Teams’ icon to launch the app, it will now load in the foreground. The background start up is only when you first log into the OS and the application automatically launches in the background.

  15. Video meetings (Smartphone)

    It would be great to participate on video meetings via smartphones (Microsoft Teams application). Most of the people have a smartphone with a camera.

  16. Let me and the team owner delete messages.

    One user asked:
    If I wrote the message, I should be allowed to delete it, regardless of a time limit (right now we're only allowed 24 hours to delete our own message). There should be no limit.

    Another user asked:
    The team owner should have moderating access to their own teams. In its most basic form, team owners should be able to delete messages posted by other members.

    It is a basic functionality that other popular services like Slack allow. It also helps keep a team's conversation clean.

    For example, a new member of our team is still getting familiar…

    We have removed the 24-hour limit on all messages. We have also added the ability for owners to delete messages. HOWEVER, on the latter function, this is not on by default — the IT admin needs to enable the feature to allow team owners to delete any message.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

    I’ve gotten feedback from the feature team that copying images into chat should work, but different than you would expect with external images. External images pasted into a message will show up as a link. Prior to the update, pasting an external image simply broke.

    If you wish to paste an external image and not have it appear as a link, then you will need to past it into the clipboard and then copy the image from the clipboard into the message.

  19. Tie "Team" environment to "Planner"

    Issue:
    Files/Notes/Tasks created in Microsoft Teams are not integrated with Microsoft Planner

    Steps to Reproduce:
    Open Teams and then either (1) Create a new Team, or (2) associate an existing Outlook/Sharepoint Group/Plan

    Expected:
    When a File, Note, or Task ("Planner") is created in either Teams or Planner, it should be totally integrated and accessible from both programs

    Actual:
    Items created in Teams are totally separate and independent of the actual MS Planner(s) located in https://tasks.office.com

    Result:
    It is confusing that work created in one space is not visible in the other and vice versa
