  2. Delete chat conversation

    I don't want to keep meeting conversation times and history in chats tab. Please create Delete option. This shouldn't be saved at all. keeping conversation history includes highly confidential as well. I see no way it is secured one.

  3. Features global administrator to disable the team

    Features global administrator to disable the team

    We are a global administrator managing 70,000 users.
    If there are many users, many teams are abandoned and inactive.

    If there are many inactive teams in a tenant, there is a risk of information leakage.
    However, deleting a team risks the loss of information or business impact.

    One thing the global admin wants to do before deleting a team is to disable it and watch it.

  5. Allow "Website" App for SharePoint.com URL's in GCC

    It was previously stated that it is difficult for Microsoft to add the "Website" app to Microsoft Teams in GCC due to concerns over compliance. If opening up to any URL is a concern or difficult item to address, how about allowing links to *.sharepoint.com? This would allow users in Teams to have a more integrated experience and allow use of applications that are coming from trusted sources.

  6. Overall dashboard for planner in teams

    In teams it would be nice to have a consolidated roll up of planner events. If it showed just a percentage and the name of the planner group would be helpful.

  7. We need there to be some sort of portal for live meetings so attendees can register for the events like other webinar software has.

    Once you create a live meeting there is no way to know who plans to attend the event live. There is only the attendee engagement report once the meeting is over. I know that at my agency at the least, there is a requirement that they need to know who is coming to the event and what organization they work for. Without this feature we will never be able to utilize Teams for live events. We love every other aspect of Teams live events compared to other webinar software out there but those other software has registration portals. This is…

  8. Status Dashboard for parity with non gov teams features

    Various connectors (Forms, 3rd party app connectors, one note until recently) are missing from Teams in Gov.
    We know that Gov teams lags behind the non-gov version, but the lack of a roadmap or page which clearly provides a status of what is and is not working in gov is making user support difficult.
    Our users read official Microsoft Teams documentation, see no additional insight about gov tenants, and expect features to work (like @forms quick-polls in chat, integration thru 3rd party connector to on on-prem git, etc, etc)

  10. Create a different alert for reactions to comments. I would prefer to only be alerted if there is a new comment.

    In the toolbar I get alerts for new comments and also reactions to comments. If I am involved in several conversations, I only want alerts for new comments. Maybe create a different colored button or only alerted in Activity tab if there is a comment reaction.

  11. 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.

  12. Sensitivity labels management for Teams within the administration portal

    It would be really helpful to be able to manage sensitivity labels for Teams within the Teams administration portal compared to only being able to manage them in the Teams client currently. Our organisation manages the creation of Teams for the business and does not have a direct user driven creation process, this allows the organisation to enforce policy standards and compliance.

  14. reminder

    Setup the option to create automated reminders such as
    "meeting in 30 minutes"
    "Timecards are due at 2pm"

    Etc.

    Slack and other tools have a /remind command for this.

  16. Get email address GCC

    I am migrating features from our on premises Public Folders features over to Microsoft Teams unfortunately the feature we use the most which is to Send emails to a shared mailbox to create a knowledge base out of this is not readily available in GCC teams. can somebody please work on enabling this features for GCC teams? it is so straight forward. the tool is not complete if it doesn't support Emailing features. the biggest initiator of everything as far as moving to the cloud is for the users to be able to communicate and email features are still a…

  20. Fix federation! Closed federation should mean CLOSED.

    GCC tenant has closed federation configured. All domains blocked except explicitly allowed domains. Users are unable to search for or communicate with external organizations as expected, HOWEVER, they are able to join conferences and share media with external organizations. Example: external organization creates a Teams call. GCC user is not invited. GCC user is accidentally forwarded the join URL, GCC user can actually join and participate in the externally hosted call, even though they are not federated. It's as if the federation list is only applicable to P2P calls, and not for MCU calls. Please fix this! This is a…
