  1. 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…

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

    Would like to see channels on Teams have a pop out feature. Some users have asked if they can have a channel pop out as a new window to reference documents or other material as needed without leaving their primary channels that are being worked on.

  6. Get rid of rapists in GIFs

    When you search, "Jello," in GIF's, there's an option featuring Bill Cosby. I get the connection but really? Let's stop giving that convicted serial ****** any platform, please.

    Allow setting on phone to only use WiFi. Had work vc and forgot mobile data on. now have 85% of monthly quota used in 1x day. Why is there no feature banning using mobile data on Android?

  10. 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.

  12. 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.

  16. Please make all policy/settings to be able to be applied to groups.

    Some of the settings can be applied to groups, but some are only applied to users (at least through the gui). An example is the Team Apps Setup Policy. As new users are provisioned too many things have to manually applied. This would also apply to retention policies. We have multiple retention policies that are dependent on which OU you are in.

  17. Teams GCC Cloud

    Please bring back the purple side bar, or let that color be customizable. The icons blend in with the white and it's hard to see. Dark and high contrast are not good options.

    200 Channels per Teams is not enough. Please increase the number of channels to like 500 channels.

    Our audit and investigations teams maintain a public facing “hotline” for the general public to report fraud, waste and abuse. Being an easily found an accessible number we receive a lot of abusive type of calls from the general public which may or may not concern our office. We currently maintain a “list” of the repeat offenders and now it is responsibility of whoever is answering these calls to identify the number and send to voicemail. As you can imagine, there are issues with this manual process. I have inquired if we can simply block the callers and the response…

  20. Add independent meetings to teams channel after meeting occurs

    Maybe I can connect the old Febraury meeting to my new teams channel - but I don't think so...
    I had a meeting about a project before deciding to proceed with project. At that moment there was no need to open a teams channel. However, a couple of weeks later, we decided to proceed with the project. Information shared in the initial meeting chat, meeting minutes, and files now resides in an unconnected meeting. The project team still references the information from that initial meeting. I can either copy everything from the meeting into the new teams channel, or keep…
