  5. color for pop out chats

    Multiple pop out chats become confusing sameness on the desktop. Can one recolor the top bar or background, or even a square or other shape on the top near the chat name to separate and highlight conversations and can the team chat/contact area allow color squares to match the pop out chat.

  6. Org-Wide Configuration of Teams Lists Gallery Templates.

    When a user creates a new List in Teams, they are presented with a gallery of list templates. Not all templates are appropriate for the organization, so customization (eg: add/remove) would be ideal.

    For example: in healthcare, users are presented with Patients List template, but hospital policy does not allow for its use.

  10. Rename option for all associated parts of a Team.

    Need for an Admin to be able to rename Team name, OneNote, Planner, O365 Group, OneDrive, E-Mail.. etc . Basically one option for all associated parts of an O365 / Team.
    I opened a case with Microsoft Support and the answer was this is not an option and not recommended.

  11. Individual track change option in co-authoring documents in Teams

    When co-authoring a document, we need to be able to set the track changes to on by user, instead of it being on for all. I cannot format or work on the document when other have turned on track changes as I don't want my formatting in track changes.

  12. Export Team contents

    I use Teams to manage projects. Please provide functionality to export the entire contents of a Team (i.e. posts, chats, uploaded files, Planner board) so it can be archived once a project is complete.

  13. Website Tab in Channels

    Please create a Website tab at the top of Channels, just like there is for Files. This would allow a drop down list of added links to commonly used websites for the group. Currently, each website is added as a separate tab and since my group uses many websites for reference frequently it just clutters up the tabs.

  14. Enable private side conversation while on a call

    As the courts are starting to leverage video conferencing capability there is a need to enable private voice conversations within a subset of call attendees. This should be a capability that more than the call organizer/admin can trigger. Think of it as a defendant talking in private with their representative. This is not currently a capability within Zoom and would offer a compelling differentiator for Teams.

  15. City of Houston

    Please add for government accounts the ability to pin a specific participant to the center block in a 9 screen setup and to one block out of the center three rows in a 49 participant setup. For governments the public needs to see the Mayor at all times and not far left or far right. Extremely important for governmental entities that use TEAMS in a broadcasting setup to a TV channel and streaming to social media platforms.

  17. va

    Why in the world would someone create a product called TEAMS and not allow you to create a meeting in the future of the entire team without being able to just select the team? If you have a team of more than 3 or 4, it becomes ridiculous.

    All I want to do is be able to schedule a meeting within TEAMS or a Channel and have it then notify everyone in my team of the appt just like in Outlook.They can then accept or not. And they should be notified when it is scheduled, not when the meeting begins.

  19. Add possibility to group channels

    First let us thank you for this fantastic app! In our company we are using teams for software development where we have different channels for the current topics like features / bugs / SCRUM and some general topics. To keep an overview it would be nice if there would be a possibility to group channels together.

  20. Make conversations appear as a thread.

    It’s frustrating not being able to reply to a specific team message.
