  1. Guest Access

    Collaboration is a core element of how we work which requires the creation of extended teams on a project or long term engagement. Whilst the majority of our teams are internal staff, there is still a critical element of any project that requires the inclusion of our clients and/or external vendors. It is imperative that Microsoft Teams allows for the easy (but secure) inclusion of external parties for the length of any project or engagement.

    This is why historically products like Groups etc. have not been adopted as widely as we would hope. If the tool only allows for 60-70%…

    The #1 requested feature for Microsoft Teams is now here!

    We’re starting to roll out the ability to add anyone as a guest in Microsoft Teams. This means that anyone with a business or consumer email account, such as Outlook.com, Gmail.com or others, can participate as a guest in Teams with full access to team chats, meetings and files.

    For more info, check out https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/Collaborate-securely-with-anyone-in-Microsoft-Teams/ba-p/165941

    Thank you all for your feedback and support!

  2. Need full capabilities of Planner in Teams

    Right now you can add a new tab for Planner in Teams. However, you are not afforded all the capabilities of Planner in this tab. Its really "Planner Lite." Here are some items you cannot do with Planner in Teams:

    1) If you create a Planner in Teams, it will not be shown in Planner itself!
    2) you can go to the group (in web outlook) wich is automatically created for the team and click there on planner and it will take you to the planner for the new group, which then cannot be displayed at teams, but the team…

    The last item in the original list, #5, is covered in https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17017147-notification-for-planner-tasks. That one (planner task notifications) is currently in internal testing with a target for release in early Q2.

    Because there are many different requests in the comments which makes it hard to update and track status of individual items, we are marking this completed, and will user individual UserVoice items to track any further Planner integration. If you have suggestions in the comments below that don’t have an existing UserVoice item, please feel free to create one.

    Thanks all!

  3. Enable screen sharing without audio/video call

    Enable an option to start a screen sharing session without starting a an audio.video call. This is a common use case in our organization.

    UPDATE: I have confirmed with the feature team that this is, in fact, functioning as you expect – 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,

  5. Complete Skype for Business Integration into Teams

    Honestly, this is a tall order due to the fact that Teams was not launched this way in the first place, but my real world experience, and feedback from the field, is that having Skype-for-Business-like functions in Teams (chat/Presence/etc) be separate from Skype for Business itself is not only confusing for many users, but inhibits adoption. Users want to consolidate the number of apps they use, not increase it. I personally find this to be true.

    Teams is an incredible tool with so much potential, but living and breathing in Skype for Business, like so many of us do, Teams…

    This topic will be closed out as completed since the vast majority of the S4B convergence has already released to the public.

    If you have any specific requests, please open a new topic or vote for an existing topic that more specifically targets your wish.

    The team is aware of the issue of using Teams will force you from using S4B.
    I’ve opened a topic specifically for that based on the feedback below – vote for support of this request at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/35124451

    As for notification issues and being able to view multiple conversations, there are topics for allowing different types of notifications – http://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/16925461 and a topic for multi-window for chats and more – https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/16926739

  6. Auto scroll down when new messages come in

    It is annoying to have to click on the “New Messages” button or scroll down manually when new messages arrive. The suggestion here is to keep scrolling down to bottom and to provide a button to jump back to last unread message.

    Hi everyone, thanks for the feedback and help on this item. It has been resolved for the majority of users: the screen no longer jumps around while scrolling or jumps to the latest message if you are scrolled up.

    If you have any questions with this feature or find a bug, please email teamsml@microsoft.com with repro steps and user logs. Your feedback is always extremely helpful!

    Thank you for your support of Teams and your patience while we worked on this item. I really appreciate it and wish you a very Happy New Year!

    I would like code snippets with highlighting based on code language. And for snippets longer than X lines, a "show more" button (like slack)

  8. Allow use of existing OneNotes/documents for channels

    My team has a pre-existing OneNote. It would be really helpful to be able to create a tab that uses this, rather than being forced to start with a blank notebook.

    Great news!
    Starting today, there’s an updated OneNote option in the Tab Gallery that allows you to create a new notebook for your tab, point to an existing notebook, or link to a particular OneNote section or page.

    This update is not yet available for EDU customers, but we’ll continue to update this new OneNote experience to make it easier to bring your important content into Teams!

    There is no clear way how to enable all notifications in channels. I have channel where I am interested in all messages.

    I hope this brightens your Friday — your feature request is here! Our hardworking engineers have been working on this for weeks and we’re happy to report it released yesterday.

    To set notifications for all messages in a channel, just click the little ellipses next to the channel name and choose “Follow this channel.”

    If this made your Friday, please tweet to us! You can send the tweet to me (@skprufo) or just include the #MicrosoftTeams hashtag, and I’ll make sure it gets to our dev team.

    THANK YOU for making Teams better and better with your awesome feedback. You guys are the best.

    This item is still completed, HOWEVER many of you have reported a new issue: drag/drop does not work when you are taking a file directly from email (i.e. Outlook) and trying to drop it into Teams. I experience the same problem every day, too!

    Muting of conversation threads is available to the public. Just like muting a chat, turning off notifications to a channel conversation will stop you from receiving updates for that specific conversation.

    To turn off notifications for specific conversations

    • Go to the beginning of a conversation in a channel
    • Go to the top right corner of the original message in the conversation thread and select More options … > Turn off notifications.
  12. Add quiet hours to notifications

    I like having notifications on my mobile device, but would like the option to silence notifications for after hours and weekends. Potentially, selectively per channel/team.

  14. Hide, Archive, and Delete chat threads!

    Teams is way to cluttered when you have several chats. It is difficult to see new messages when they come in. I like a very clean and simple tool and if you could manage options that let you delete threads and also that would let you choose to clear all activity and history upon closing the App that would be great. As it is I have a bunch on inactive threads that are always in the activity list and they are old and not active any longer. Other than this I really like the UI and the functions of the…

    Additional clarification as to what was fixed in this feature request.

    This request is done except for Delete Private chat. Delete Private Chat is still Under Review and therefore will be pulled into its own topic; no decision has been made to yet if this will be done or not.

    What is complete are the following:

    1. Delete your own messages anywhere in Teams.
    2. Team Owners can choose if users can edit/delete in their tenant as well as choose if admins have the power to delete any message posted in public channels.
    3. The ability to hide your private chat threads (these are not the chat threads in channels, but the private chat threads that appear when you click the Chat icon on the left-side app bar).
    4. The ability to mute your private chat threads. (these are not the chat threads in channels, but the private chat threads…

  15. Please enable share control in video meeting

    We used to be able to share control in video meeting so we can do remote support.

    Please include this feature in the future releases.

  16. don't switch to "away", just because I'm using a different application (i'm still at work!)

    The availability status should indicate whether or not someone is available, which means they are available to chat.

    So it does not make sense to switch my status to away, just because I'm answering email or do something else on my computer.

    The fix for this is officially completed! For the specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you are still active on the device, there was still a small % of users who saw the broken behavior, but as of today, all should be working correctly. Please note this was a backend fix, so no client update is needed.

    If you believe you are still having an issue, please feel free to capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with detailed repro steps to teamsml@microsoft.com.

    Thanks everyone – and enjoy!

    Markdown is here!

    For those who want to be able to format text on the fly or collaborate on code, markdown has finally arrived. Now, you’ve got a quick, easy way to perform the following actions:

    add asterisks to either end of some text to make it bold
    underscore the beginning and end of some text in order to make it italic
    add a tilde before and after your text to strike through
    Add a double pound sign (##) before your text to create a Header
    Type [text](URL) to create a hyperlink within a message
    To start a bulleted list, preface your text with an asterisk (*) or a hyphen (-)
    To start a numbered list, preface your text with
    To create a block quote, just add a right-hand bracket (>) before your text
    Even better, our markdown syntax includes support for code:

  20. Use existing Planner or Group to build Team

    Maybe this is in there, but we have a number of Office 365 Groups it would be nice to make a team out of. I got to make a team the very first time out of a group for one, but I don't see a way of making a team out of an existing Group and auto-adding those members. It would be nice if it tied to the existing Planner--I don't want to make new teams or groups, but use the existing ones....

    Sorry folks, I totally missed this one thought it’s been done for a while now, as some of you have figured out.

    How to use an existing Planner to build a Team: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Planner-Blog/Bringing-a-Plan-into-Microsoft-Teams/ba-p/57463

    And for Groups, when you are creating a new Team, you’ll see a paragraph at the bottom of the “Create a Team” form box that gives you an option to select an existing group.

    Please note that you must be the ADMIN of the Planners and Groups you are trying to build a Team upon.

    Thanks and let me know if you have any questions, and sorry I let this one pass me!

    Sincerely,
    Suphatra
