  1. Wenn Sie Teams im deutsprachigen Raum anbieten, dann machen Sie Ihren Rückmeldebogen auf Deutsch.

    Lassen Sie die gleichzeitige Ansicht von Chat und Präsentation bzw. Teilnehmenden zu. Lassen Sie verschiedene Handzeichen zu. Lassen sie Chat zwischen einzelnen Teilnehmenden zu. Teams ist viel zu wenig interaktiv! Die schlechteste aller digitalen Sitzungs-Apps!

  2. Allow additional 2-way authenticators

    I work in a building that doesn’t allow cell phones & unauthorized electronic devices. We also alternate teleworking in the schedule.

    There is no way I can use my work phone as an authenticator & still be able to use text authentication at home. Give us the option to choose. Right now I’m forced to reset two-way authentication every time I switch between work/home & it’s a real pain.

  3. Keep pinned posts visible in channel

    When a post is pinned in a channel, keep that post visible at the bottom of the channel at all times.
    Pinned posts are used for important announcements and information, and hiding them in information pane of a channel does not allow for using them as an effective announcement. Pinned posts in a channel should be shown to all users immediately when they open the channel.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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?

  9. @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.

  10. Resigning in every 18 hours

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. color for pop out chats

    Multiple pop out chats become confusing sameness on the desktop. Can one recolor the top bar or background, or even a square or other shape on the top near the chat name to separate and highlight conversations and can the team chat/contact area allow color squares to match the pop out chat.

  20. Org-Wide Configuration of Teams Lists Gallery Templates.

    When a user creates a new List in Teams, they are presented with a gallery of list templates. Not all templates are appropriate for the organization, so customization (eg: add/remove) would be ideal.

    For example: in healthcare, users are presented with Patients List template, but hospital policy does not allow for its use.
