  1. recurring meeting

    I have a recurring meeting (using WebEx) that I wanted to switch to Teams. The meeting has been going on for years and will continue indefinitely and therefore has no end date. When I added the Teams meeting (via Outlook plug-in) it sent a new invite to every person for EVERY occurrence. Participants had gotten nearly 300 before I was able to cancel it. This is totally unacceptable. If I do the same with WebEx it sends one invitation that covers all occurrences.

  2. Attachments in Planner

    Currently when you upload an outlook file into your files and then attach it to a Planner card the link will not take you to the file - it gives you an error. I have had this problem at two different companies with MS Teams.

  5. Teams client Mac asks way too often for two-factor (MS Authenticator) even when Macbook lid is closed

    When my closed Macbook comes close to a new wifi, my MS Authenticator asks for "approval" on my Apple Watch. First it was confusing why someone tried to access my account until I realised that it was the Mac Teams client that tried to connect. Need teams to better handle authentication towards Office365 with two-factor authentication enabled.

  6. Make Teams GDPR compliant for external users with custom Terms & Conditions

    Office 365 has quite some GDPR functionality, but the case of external users for SharePoint and Teams is not managed:
    - How do we get user consent of storing user profile, user activities and other privacy data.
    - Declaration of how data is process in the system.
    By supporting a customized "Terms & Condition" (which many other services do), this would be solved.

    Also I am not sure how well Microsoft covers the GDPR requirements in their TrustCenter (e.g. https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/trustcenter/privacy/gdpr/solutions). Do you describe how user data is processed, can we ask for an excerpt of user data etc? Are…

  9. Make it more like slack

    Hate the look and feel of teams, tried to get staff to use teams as we are an ms house, but staff hated it, I hated it, we stayed with slack. Teams is dull and doesn’t work properly.

  10. Strikethrough!

    We use wikis for some of our to-do lists that don't make sense for a planner -- I'd love to be abe to strikethrough tasks as they were finished!

    Thank you!

  11. Use something other than a red circle to indicate busy status

    In every other meeting app that I use a red circle means "recording". The red circle that indicates a "Busy" status constantly freaks me out because I think an app is recording audio or video. I'd love something different here.

  12. Display Participants In Team Chat

    Add a side bar or something to Team/Group Chats that will display who is in that chat. That way you aren't addressing someone who isn't actually there (also showing their availability in chat would be great too). If this feature exists it isn't apparent in MacOS Teams

  14. Accessing Archived Teams

    It is not evident that one should click on the "manage" icon to the right of "Join or create a team" to be able to access archived teams. I should be able to see some form of the word "archive" somewhere in the main GUI.

  15. Volume meter for Live Events

    It would be helpful to see what volume levels are currently being received, as well as an indicator for when noise cancellation is actively being applied.

  17. Allow SharePoint files to be pinned as tabs in Teams

    I would like to be able to pin a SharePoint file as a tab without having to upload it directly to Teams first. The issue that we run into is that you then have different versions of a file. One that is in SharePoint and one that is in Teams. Depending on who accesses which version you can have edits in both that have to be merged somehow which is a total nightmare.

  18. Separate Calendar App

    On the phone it's impossible to have email and calendars open at the same time, making it impossible to quickly check whether time suggestions etc. received by email would work in the calendar; or while giving several time slot options, going back to the email draft is very impractical.

    Either make a separate calendar app, or if you're too lazy for that, at least allow a button for quickly switching between calendar and mail without exiting the one completely to open the other.

  19. More than 11 users assigned for one task

    Planner only allows 11 users to be assigned to a task. Need to be able to add more. Additionally, the task only allows one person to mark the task complete rather than individually. I do not want to create the same task 11 times.

  20. Option to Change Status from Tray Icon

    SfB has the option to change your status by right clicking on the icon in the system tray. It would be great if you could have this option in teams.
