  5. 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. Distribution Groups

    Please allow email Distribution Groups to create a team in chat. This function that improved the communication in our medical facility in Skype is sorely missed. If there is any possibility of getting Skype back my staff would be eternally grateful.

  10. 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…

  11. 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.

  12. DOD

    Teams mobile app needs to allow you to seamlessly switch between chat view and most recently viewed Team conversation as in the desktop app.

    It's an unnecessary annoyance to have to select the team conversation you want again every time you switch from Chat back to Teams.

    Applies to Android Teams app.

    Chat view needs a way to view and select your contacts.

  15. Live Captions for GCCH

    Hi,

    We have some Team Members that are hard of hearing and use hearing aids. With our increased need to use Microsoft Teams for meetings, it would be very helpful to have Live Caption available for these Team Members.

    I see the option to disable or disable with user override in the Admin Panel, however this option is not available in the Teams client.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/use-live-captions-in-a-teams-meeting-4be2d304-f675-4b57-8347-cbd000a21260

    Thanks,
    Brandon

  16. Spotlight - ability to spotlight multiple particpants

    We need a way to allow Teams meeting organizer to spotlight multiple users. During virtual proceedings, there is a need to keep the judge's video and whomever is speaking at that time on the screen. There is also a need to be able to hard mute all attendants and only allow them to speak when it is appropriate.

  17. Show team name when shared document link is clicked

    When someone shares a document link to a Team file, there is no good way to know what Team the document is stored in. This context can be very important as a collaborative document is being worked on to properly understand the scope the document is intended for.

  18. 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?

  19. Pin frequent / favourite chats

    I find my frequent individual chats are getting lost amongst daily teams meetings chats. Would be great to be able to pin favourites, or similar.

  20. Multiple tabs open at once

    Currently switching between multiple chats, calendar, teams & teams files, but can only view 1 at a time & have to find other files each time. Would be ideal to have many tabs open at once to easy compare files, go back to frequently used pages, etc.
