  1. Search only for messages I sent in chats.

    Search for only messages I have sent in chats. Listed in a similar way to @Mentions but it needs to be ones I sent/posted.Searching through all channels and Teams across our entire building is extremely time consuming.

  2. Remove From Meeting Message

    As a teacher, I've had a couple instances where I've needed to remove a student from class - as a way to inform them of the reason, if there could be a message from organizer for the reason they were removed, would be beneficial.
    It there is a possibility of being able to add a link or file while doing that would also be a way to give them a 'think sheet' or processing form or document you want to accompany the message would be nice.

  6. Image Zooming Error In Chat Box during meeting.

    Dear Sir/Madam,
    When we share a image file in chat box in meeting.
    With Laptop's Track-pad when we are zooming in with two fingers it zoom out the image, and when we are zooming in the image zoom out.
    Plz check and try to make it work properly with laptop's track-pad.
    Its just opposite what it should be.

    Thanks.

  10. Give people the option to automatically mute all chat notifications

    Instead of having to manually mute all chat notifications I would like to be able to have all chats muted automatically, including new chats.

  14. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE add a dictation microphone on the chat. My students are too young to always be typing.

    On a phone or tablet, you can click on a microphone to type in the chat instead of physically typing. On the laptop/computer/desktop version, in the corner just like the tablet, there should be a dictation microphone so they can talk-to-text. Please. My students are too young to always type their answers in the chat.

  16. chat

    Allow the CHAT to pull out of teams at all times, like Skype. We are use to having Skype up and working on multiple documents. In Teams it pulls you to the chat and out of the document or you have to pop out each individual chat which takes up too much room.

  17. An Outlook App to the Teams Apps Store

    Outlook is always open on every computer in the class. It would make sense for all Microsoft products to be accessible from within teams, rather than all of them except for Outlook.

    This would be on the right hand tab tray, just like the integrated "files" tab for one drive, but would instead display the users Outlook inbox and allow for composing and managing emails.

    As many of the other Microsoft apps for teams are portals or clones of their webApp equivalent, I don't see why it couldn't be done. There are external teams apps that do this in under…
