  2. Open to the bottom of communications

    Every time the desktop app opens it shows the very top of conversations forcing you to scroll to the bottom every time. Have the app open to the bottom of conversations upon opening.

  3. Cloud editing by the main users of files that are encrypted (password-protected)

    My team of 6 is required to constantly update a file (with sensitive information) with 15 viewers who will constantly retrieve information from the file. Cloud editing on an encrypted file (edit) on the Teams cloud would be really great.

    Context: Microsoft files have a general tools, when prompted on the location to save the file, that encrypts the file with 2 passwords. The 1st to open the file, the 2nd to modify the file.
    Viewers of the file will be able to open the file as a "read only" file whereas the author of the file will have both…

  4. Subsections under each team & Renaming tabs

    Give us the ability to create subsections under each team, to improve organization. In addition, allow for renaming tabs (instead of "Excel"), so it's easier to differentiate, especially when dealing with a large amount of data & several files.

  11. Teams iOS: Make clicking on a tab equal to selecting the first command in the Options (or overflow) menu

    In the iOS Teams app, I experience inconsistent behaviour which is a bit frustrating. Some apps start within Teams when you click on their tab, but more often clicking on a tab starts the browser! Examples: (1) Clicking on a Forms quiz will NOT start the quiz in Teams, no it will take you outside of Teams to the browser... Weird! In order for the quiz to start in Teams, I have to go to the three dot Options menu and select the first option (Open). Clicking on a quiz apparently starts the SECOND option, Open in browser. WHY??
    (2)…

  13. Microsoft Stream videos attached by students as links don't show up the marking view on Teams

    Assignment marking takes significantly longer by having to open each link in a browser window and then using split-screen to use the rubric on Teams while providing grades to students.

  14. Assign task to youself

    I would like to be able to assign tasks to myself inside the app, as it comes in handy if I need to assign something to myself, which a teacher has not set. I'm not sure if this is already possible though...

  15. I'm wondering why it's not possible to save documents directly into the Files section on Teams from Onedrive?

    I have a Onedrive Folder where I keep my class materials and I would like to be able to share some of these materials with my learners. However, when I try to do this, there doesn't seem to be any simple way of uploading documents into the Files section of Teams from Onedrive.

  16. Increase TEAM member limit to 10,000 or more

    Currently, I believe the members limit is set to 5,000 for a company/org. My school district has over 8,000 staff and having a single TEAM to assist with adoption and reframe all staff to consider TEAMS usage for ALL internal communication will be extremely beneficial. Consider this an option for a district deep in TEAMS rollout to avoid the need for an "Intranet" as it's always been known and bring substance and consistency to the platform for all user-types already confused between the fantastic Office 365 suite of tools.

  18. Herrejävlar

    Det går ju för fan inte ens att hitta till var man lämnar synpunkter!!!

    Jag har mängder av synpunkter men tar nu bar upp en. Det som gör att vi inte använder teams.

    FLÖDET. FRUKTANSVÄRT PLOTTRIGT. Ta bort all info om vilken kanal osv i flödet. Vem som nämnde vem osv. I flödet ska bara stå första raderna personen skriver. Sen ska der vara sökbart!

    Following the steps provided here, you still cannot link an existing One Notebook to Teams. Each time to you attempt to pair them an error message pops up.
