  2. Away Status timer

    Skype for Business has an option that allows you to change the amount of time that elapses before your status changes to “Away”. This is a great feature.

  3. "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

  4. 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).

  5. Allow team owners to set default notifications for all team members

    It should be possible to determine what type of notifications members of a team get for a particular channel. The individual users could then opt out if they don't feel the info being posted on the channel is relevant to them. Currently the default notifications setting is off which means people are added to teams and have to change their notifications settings before they receive notifications from the group.

  8. Emodji like in Slack

    In Slack our team use emoji to vote ideas and statements, also to negative votes (negativ votes are very important in work discurs). In Teams we want to use this option but its inpossible. It is the only thing why we use Slack instead of Teams.

  9. Microsoft Teams for Windows 10S

    Now that Teams is free for everyone , I see that you can't use the Teams version for UWP to sign in. It gives you an error.

    please fix.

  11. Bring back full screen mode

    The new version of TEAMS pops out a new window but loses full-screen mode. This is a HORRIBLE miss. Bring it back!

  12. Member list has no sort options

    Would be great if there are sort options in the member list such that members could be sorted by name order or role order, etc.

  13. A Password should be required to join a meeting, to prevent anyone who gets a hold of the link unable to access the meeting

    Password should be required to join a meeting, similar to Zoom to prevent unauthorized joining and sharing of the meeting link without a password. A password would be a additional security control.

  14. breakout groups

    When running a virtual workshop, it would be ideal to be able to simulate the in-person workshop approach where you can break out into smaller groups to workshop a topic and then rejoin the main group to present back. if the moderator can distribute specific people into smaller break out groups and then control when the smaller breakout groups end and automatically join the main group again, this would make virtual workshops on teams significantly better. currently this functionality is available on zoom.

  17. Deleting Chats

    I don't like the idea of not being able to delete certain messages in a chat. I know that my job there are always co workers that walk around and can see what I'm saying as well as see who I'm chatting with. Even if you hide the chat, all you have to do is put a name in and the chat reappears picking up where you left off. Please add this as an option ASAP. THANKS!

  19. Renaming Organisation

    I wanted to rename my Organisation but could not find a way to do it. Organisation can change over time due to merger and acquisition and we should be able to reflect these changes in Teams

  20. For Mac OS please include 'Share System Sound' option when sharing screen/application

    I am unable to share videos/audio while sharing screen and there's no option to share system sound either. I have enabled all system preference rights for access to MS Teams on my Mac..
