  2. 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.

  3. Contact group

    DoD member.
    Request: Could you add an option in the Chat>Contacts>Contact Group menu to "Message this group" (in addition to the available options: Add a contact to this group, Rename this group, and Delete this group).

    Background: Not sure what the purpose is of creating contact groups; thought I'd be able to go to my contacts in the chat tab and select an option to send a chat to a group I'd created, but that doesn't seem to be the case. I work for a headquarters and creating a team/channel for each group I communicate with is a little annoying…

    Migrate Group Chat into Teams Channel. Create an ability to spin up a Teams Channel from a group chat and preserve the original discussion into the Channel.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Group Chats - Allow users to reply to a comment like in Team Channel chats

    I would like the option to reply to a comment from a private group chat like we can in Team chats. We keep group chats to stay connected but they have no connection to any project in Teams. It would be helpful because we have several people talking at one in the chat and it's so easy to follow along when everyone is moving the thread along.

  13. 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?

  14. 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

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Walkie-talkie feature for GCC

    With thousands active government users in law enforcement agencies (GCC) cloud the push-to-talk (PTT) functionality would be a powerful tool that would greatly enhance ability to accomplish tasks set for our frontline users. Please add push-to-talk (PTT) feature to GCC.

  18. reorder contact groups

    I would appreciate the ability to be able to rearrange my contact groups, I do not like the alphabetical order that they are arranged in because I have certain groups that I need to be visible at all times and not at the bottom of the list.

    And while we're at it, I would like these contact groups to stay collapsed if I have them set that way.

  19. Translate

    When using the translate feature, we should be able to choose from a list of languages to translate the original message to.

  20. 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.
