  1. Permitir o apagamento de mensagens.

    Apagar mensagens permite controlar o fluxo de mensagem lidas, deixando apenas as importantes. Num grupo o fluxo de mensagens é intenso. Fica difícil saber onde paramos a leitura.

  2. GCC

    Give the ability of the team/channel owner to remove the general chat from a channel and set an app in its place. If you have a channel called daily reports of a MS Form, you don't want users to dig for that form, just go to that channel and the form is the first thing they see. There are so many use cases for this.

    GCC High

  3. @mention specific list item in GCC chat or channel post.

    It would be great if a team member could @mention a specific list item in the context of the channel posts or a chat message. This would better integrate Lists with the rest of teams in a similar manner to how one can reference a document or a person.

  4. Enable cross Team tagging to share information.

    My current Team is the 'alpha' team, this is where I do the bulk of my work.

    However, I'm also a member of the 'bravo' team where I'm also heavily involved.

    For the most part, there is no need for the alpha and bravo team to collaborate or share files etc.

    However! On occasion there is the need for me to share what has been posted on the opposite Team.

    Hey @alpha, have you seen this cool info that @bravo have posted up?

    Currently MS Teams are very, very heavily siloed; it's equally right and appropriate to be a member…

  5. Stay signed in

    I use the teams chat for an important group and I am constantly signed out of teams. I rely on a lot of these notifications for my job and aprproving risk assements. When I have been signed out I don't get any notifications. Make it an option to stay signed in! And make more than one option to verify your account.

  6. Support blocking presence from included or excluded list of users within the same tenant and/or federated tenant.

    DoD needs the block presence capability IAW UCR and as worded currently in Teams: i.e. "When you block someone, they can't call you from a one-on-one chat, @mention you in a one-on-one chat, or see your presence." This is not supported in DoD or GCC as stated in the application.

  7. GCC Teams Web Connector

    So, we need to be able to allow the creation of the "Web Connector" like we do in the commercial application. That is, if we select a channel and say we wan to make a web connector, we should be able to do so. And then call that web connector with an active card and have it show up in the channel. This is how it works in the commercial deployment and we just want the same thing. If there is AAA that you need to do for GCC/DOD ... fine ... then just let us know what we need…

  8. Recovery of deleted teams

    An accidentally deleted team cannot be recovered because the team is not generated between Outlook Office365 groups.

    Does an Office365 Outlookgroup correspond to a team created within Teams?
    Now it seems not.
    thank you.

  9. Add Rol "administrador"

    Starting with Microsoft Teams it happened to me that I added several Owners and one of them deleted the team and I could not restore it.

    An administrator "Role" is required to prevent another owner from deleting the Team.

  11. Minimized popup

    When in a teams meeting and you minimize teams. It would be great to have the same popup as Skype for business does. Allowing to unmute and hang up and recover meeting fast.

  15. Allow channels to be formatted as chats rather than conversations.

    allow team channels to be configured as "linear" or "conversation" mode, where "linear" mode is similar to a chat type experience where messages are sequential rather than being "form posts+reply" style.

  16. Prevent Team Owner from renaming Team

    Our Teams are currently created by the Teams admins.
    Their names are carefully chosen.
    The Team Owner should NOT be able to change the Team from the name the Teams Admin has set, especially in Government tenants.

    In the mean time, the Teams admin in government tenants should have an alert/report that shows when Teams have been renamed.

  17. New posts in teams mobile

    In teams, Chat on mobile shows the number of new or unread posts, but it doesn't tell me which ones they are. I have 3 new items, but can't figure out where they are. I have about 12 that are bold, some of those are old meetings , not sure why they are still bold. I can't filter to just show the 3 new ones either. How do I find the new ones?

  18. Resigning in every 18 hours

    Resigning in the morning delays response time and communication effectiveness if I need to ensure everyone gets a message early in the morning teams is not the app I use

  19. Wiki Search

    Information within the Wiki feature of Teams does not appear to be searchable.

    Wiki is a great tool and I love it, however, we have stopped using it because it is so difficult to find things when you get a lot of content.

    Please include Wiki pages in Teams search.

  20. Make the caption show more than 2 lines at a time

    Make the caption show more than 2 lines at a time so if the user looks away for a few seconds he is not lost.
