  1. 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.

    -Warren

  2. 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..

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. 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.

    Thanks,

  7. add timestamps on replies and chats

    Please add time-stamps for replies and chats. Right now, it gives the day (i.e. Yesterday). But the next day, I can't tell when messages were sent/received. Thanks!

    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.

  9. 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?

    Hi everyone, thanks so much for your feedback. With our GA release, we have enabled SSO on Windows. We now support Native ADAL integration.
    Hope you all have experienced the change and enjoying smooth login experience.

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

  12. Disbale autostart in Teams App for the entire tenant

    Admins need the ability to disable the Teams auto-start for the entire organization, instead of each end user having to go in and stop Teams application from automatically starting when you boot up your device.

  13. Option to only allow meeting organizer to record video meeting

    Have an option (like BlueJeans) to only allow the meeting organizer or moderators to record the meeting, since right now anyone in the organization can record the meeting.

    The option to allow only the meeting organizer to record a meeting is enabled via presenter & attendee roles:

    Presenters can do just about anything that needs doing in a meeting. Attendees have limitations on the actions they can initiate within the meeting, including the following:
    - Present
    - Mute All
    - Remove/Add Users
    - Admit Users from Lobby
    - Start/Stop Recording

    For more info, please see the documentation below:

    Thanks!

  14. Delete or edit your message from a mobile device

    Adding delete/edit option on the mobile app would be truly appreciated. It is really annoying when you make a mistake while typing a message or you post something that you want to remove, but you simply can't. Hopefully, this feature will be added.

  15. 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).

    "Link to a channel or team: Now, you can grab a shareable link to a channel or team just by clicking the … next to the channel or team name. Copy and paste the link in a message or email to give someone a quick and easy entry point to key conversations, files,…

  17. Remove bots

    The only way to discover what a bot does is to enable it. Then after you discover you don't want it it's too late and it can't be removed. They just sit there and junk up my Teams interface.

    Sorry for the delay on this update, folks. It slipped off my to-do list. Luckily, it looks like a lot of you have figured out that you can remove a bot through the team settings page. This deletes the bot from your team.

    If you have any questions, just tweet me at @skprufo.

    Thanks,

  18. "Reply all with IM" from an Outlook meeting is broken

    In an Outlook meeting, when I use the "Reply All with IM" option, with Teams set as my IM application, it opens a conversation with the owner of the meeting only.
