  1. Enable PowerApps, PowerAutomate, and Forms Apps in Teams for GCC/Gov Customers

    Please enable the 1st party apps for Microsoft PowerApps, PowerAutomate (Flow), and Forms for GCC/Gov customers. GCC versions of these services exist but the Teams integrated apps are missing for GCC.

  3. Allow Teams Custom Apps/Bots in GCC

    Allow GCC customers the ability to upload custom apps/bots to Teams and enable the 'Manage Apps' section for GCC customers under 'Teams Apps' in the admin portal. Third party apps are now available (apparently), but custom apps aren't, doesn't make sense....

  4. MS Project integration with Teams

    I’d like to be able to integrate MS Project online with MS Teams such that the Project application is made available through the Teams “add a tab” functionality. Currently, searching for “project” yields no resulting apps that I can add as a tab. Planner does show up, but not Project.

  5. Add Azure DevOps apps in Teams for GCC

    Is there any ETA when Azure DevOps apps like 'Azure Boards',, 'Azure Pipelines' etc will be available for Teams for GCC. Currently there is nothing in M365 Roadmap regarding that: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=GCC

  8. Add Publisher application to TEAMS application

    Add Publisher application in TEAMS. I am currently in a Newsletter team made up of four individuals. It would be nice if we could all create/access and update the newsletter in TEAMS as we do with other applications. Not all team members are able to access certain drives so it complicates matters at times. Thank you for your consideration.

  10. Multiple channels/accounts on desktop account

    Add support for multiple accounts to desktop app. I use teams for multiple organizations and the only way to keep all accounts up is through a sandbox program. I should be able to tab back and forth like the mobile app.

  11. 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.

  12. GCC - please include a social recognition app

    Include a social recognition app such as KudoBoard or Recognize in the Teams Roadmap. Employee recognition is essential to maintain morale and high levels of collaboration for effective change management. Our organization periodically hosts innovation challenges to guide change initiatives at all levels of staff based on input from the same levels. A social recognition integrated in teams would essentially allow owners to recognize successful channels, groups, or teams for successful integration of technology in promoting and guiding change in our organization. Recognition and change are interdependent, and integration will allow workflow to immediately share praise when milestones or outcomes…

  14. NDI Video

    Microsoft Teams needs NDI support, like skype does. We need to be able to hold internal meetings, with existing Teams features, but we also need to be able to broadcast those meetings out to the public. NDI output compatible with OBS or other similar software would allow us to do that.

  16. Sign in

    I currently have to sign in several times a week on each device. It is annoying, but in the deployed environment it is really difficult. It would be nice to not need to get the texts so often to authenticate or to authenticate via civilian email.

  17. 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)

  19. Please add Live Polling functionality to all Teams, Channels, Meetings, and Chats

    Teams should allow the ability to take live polls within any Team, Channel, Meeting or Chat; and then allow results to be posted to either the originator of the poll, or all participants (depending on settings).
