  1. Merge chat & team threads

    It would be great for there to be a way to merge multiple chats/conversations when it's only necessary to have one single chat. It would greatly help with decluttering chats as well as keeping the history and thread so that important documents and information aren't lost (important and necessary feature).

  6. Provide option to edit the Privacy type of channel from Standard to Private or vice versa;

    If we are allowed to edit the type of privacy, if by mistake privacy is wrongly selected we can edit else we have to delete the entire channel to re-create which is rework.

  7. Chat history is inaccessible due to terrible scrolling/loading behavior!

    Loading chat history takes forever or often results in an empty page. I can't navigate through the history and look around because every scroll move takes me somewhere else or to nowhere.

    There seems to be no chat history cache at all.

  9. "quote" function

    would like to have a "quote" function, such as skype/whatsapp, like doubleclicking on a message and quoting it specifically so that counterparty can understand topic while he is lost in a thousand message chat

  10. Power Point share option in Microsoft Teams Live Events

    In a regular Teams Meeting, you can share Desktop, open Windows, or PowerPoint presentations, which you can browse from your OneDrive, your computer, or from Teams. It allows you to share the entire PowerPoint "full screen", but inside your Teams window so you can still see the chat and participants. This feature is not in Teams Live events, but would be a great help. Currently, we require whoever is presenting to use two screens so they can have their content on one screen and the Teams Live event on the other. This would eliminate that need, and also allow one…

  11. Choice to view the video thumbnails of participants above the Shared Content instead of having them fixed to the bottom.

    It would be great if when a user is sharing their screen during a video call, the list of participants and their small video feeds were shown above the shared content rather than below it. Many times people are looking at themselves or other participants when speaking, and it looks to others like their eyes are closed. By moving the user's own image and the images of others to the top of the screen, above the shared content, there's a better likelihood that users will be looking upwards towards the camera rather than down.

  14. Connect to existing OneDrive

    Within the free MS Teams under the file menu, there is integrated a OneDrive. However this is a different OneDrive than the one I already have for the same user.

    Please could you make it possible to add the personal OneDrive i already have in my home edition of Office 365.

  15. Remote Desktop Pointer

    Provide the ability for a remote user to click on a random location within the remote screen and all users can see what was clicked. Maybe time-out within a few seconds. A simple MVP for this might be to use the same functionality that currently exists for remote control, except without the "control".

  16. Channel descriptions should show inside the channel

    The channel descriptions are nowhere obvious, It would be nice if it shows in the channel and letting members know the purpose of the channel.

  20. User name change

    I noticed that if a user changes his/her name, even though I see the change under "Manage Org", the name on the private chat window remains the same.
