  1. Customisable Praise Badges

    Picture this - you've been engaged in a fierce debate with a colleague via the chat function on teams for the last 3 hours, until finally, in one foul swoop, the parley ends. Your colleague - Jim - has completely annihilated any hope you had of moving up the chain of respect within your organisation. He is unbeatable. A genius stuck in a modern man's world. Touché, you mutter under your breath.
    Hands shaking, you reluctantly move the mouse toward the 'praise' icon in the bottom right hand corner. You review the options... Praise? Courage? ... Leadership? These hardly seem…

  2. Chat option sorted by status

    Please allow chat to be organized by status how Skype can be. I need to see who is available on my team to coordinate services, see staff coverage, and for emergencies.

  4. NSW RFS

    Getting periodically logged out of Teams and associated apps is absolutely painful as I'm missing important communications. Upon logging back in, username and password should be enough - also having to do SMS verification EVERY-SINGLE-TIME is irritating as ****. Navigation of the team apps is clunky AF too.

  5. Chat menu should have a collapse/expand all contacts

    Contacts listed in the chat menu list should default to collapse all by group. There should be a shortcut to expand/collapse all.

  6. Find unsent messages (GCC)

    Add "unsent messages" to Teams filter or other method to find messages not yet sent. How many times do you get busy in Teams and click away from a message in progress and then forget that you didn't finish?

  7. Hide online status from specific people - GCC

    Need the option to stay invisible for specific people or visible for only specific people. There are many use cases for when you may only want to be visible to your supervisor and no one else or your team and no one else. This should only increase productivity which should be a high priority for Teams functionality.

    The following programs already have this functionality. There are probably more.
    Facebook Messenger
    Sametime
    Webex

  8. Need permanent and timed statuses - GCC

    There are times when you are working heads down on a project next to your computer so not actually away. In cases like these we should not be forced to check on our computer every 15 min to change status back to green. It causes context switching and prevents deep work. We should be able to force a green status or set custom timers on green.

  9. Option to turn MS Teams Chat into MS Teams Channel

    I would like to option to turn an MS Teams Chat into an MS Teams Channel. The option is available in "out of box" MS Teams but it is not available within our MS Teams service. Sometimes groups start out as chats in order not to bog down others with a bunch of teams channels. But in some instances the need for an MS Teams Channel created from a MS Team Chat will be necessary. I currently have a chat that needs to be created into a MS Teams channel so that I am not recreating everything within the chat.

  12. Please allow us to be able to change our fonts

    We had this available in Skype for business and I do not understand why it has not been migrated over. This has multiple case uses but one simply would be that people like being able to choose their font color, size, and type.

  14. Be able to unhide conversation

    Create option to unhide conversations. What’s the point of saving them if we can’t go back to them? Working in a large company, you don’t know everyone, so when someone new sends you something, have a hard time remembering their name.

  17. organize contacts

    Add an ability to re-organize contacts by dragging and dropping. Current setup requires users to manually add a contact to the new group and then remove from the old group.
