  1. Remove the limit of Private Channels within a Team

    Why is there a limit on the number of Private Channels in a Team? And if there is going to be a limit, 30 is WAY to low. Not everyone in a Team is involved in every project or task, so the need to have many Private Channels is a high priority for us.

  2. Publish and View Your Microsoft Planner Tasks in Outlook Government Tenants

    I'd like the ability to sync our tasks and to do lists from Microsoft Planner to the Microsoft Outlook Calendar. I just got off the phone with tech support and was told this is not an available function for Government Tenants. This is something that has been available at least for the past 3 years on enterprise licenses, why can't we do this on a government license?

    The permission is there under the admin center. Why doesn't it actually work?

  4. NHS

    Can the application stop adding pop-up notification in the center of the screen as people join during a meeting as it interrupts the though flow and can also mask shared screen/ documents. Make smaller and to one corner perhaps.

  5. Give owner permission to delete chattposts

    There are certain circumstances when it would be good if owner could delete chattposts that another owner or member have made. Perhaps with approval from manager if thats is possible.

    For example. A member is no longer alive and it is hard to read the chattposts and constantly be reminded....

  6. Add More Dancing Emojis

    The current group (tree, monkey, turkey and "Travolta guy") of dancing emojis are good, but can you add another emoji of a guy or girl performing the "Carlton Dance"? See the TV show, "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" for inspiration. :-)

  7. Team name alias

    In the Microsoft Team GUI the favorite team names show up on the panel on the left. The name of the teams here are same as the team name you create. But there are situations where you want a standardized team name across the company or organization. While you want a more descriptive and adhoc name show up in the favorites panel. For eaxmple, team name need to be a standard 5 digit number say 10200. This team may be doing "Product A development". So when you see the team on the favorite panel we would like to see "Product…

  9. View Files outside the Chat Window

    I'm in the DoD Cloud, and when files are uploaded, they can only be viewed in the Chat Room. The problem is that when numerous chats occur, that file is moved so far up the chat string that it makes the file difficult to find. Recommend having access to a separate window for Files.

  10. My phone can unlock and recognize me, so why not the app

    Stop the multiple sign ins. It’s a complete waste of my time and makes me not use the app. If all I have to do is sign in once and the phone remembers me, then uses the facial recognition afterwards it would be far superior.

  11. CVR

    Add better two step verification or give the option to opt out of two step. My cell phone service is terrible at my house so I constantly have trouble getting signed in, would be nice to get the access code sent to an alternate email address.

  12. I want to have an option to pop out the Chat portion of Teams, which would be incredibly helpful.

    Expecting that everyone has the problem of finding your way back to where you were prior to looking at or replying to a chat. If it were still totally integrated but was capable of being viewed in it's own window, a great deal of efficiency and functionality would be the result.

  14. Ability to disable recording in breakout rooms

    Although attendees and external users should not have the ability to start a recording it is important to the integrity of the Hearing that no one be allowed to in the breakout room. An option for the Host to enable recording (for use cases other than Hearings) would be helpful

  15. The ability to move individual participants in/out of lobby/breakout rooms

    In hearings, we need the ability to move people in and out of lobby (and breakout rooms) individually without the option of them returning to the meeting without approval.

  16. Allow SharePoint Properties to be Updated in MS Teams

    When setting up a view with the file structure it would be wonderful to be able to update those fields/columns in MS Teams instead of needing to bounce back into SharePoint every time.

  17. Edit display name functionality

    For virtual hearings, or other online meetings with external users there is a need to maintain privacy and at times a need for the meeting organizer to edit participants display name during a meeting.

  18. GCC

    We use a series of Teams to serve as "rooms" in a social learning community with channels underneath as private work/collaboration rooms. We would like to be able to turn off members at the Teams level the ability to create meetings since they get inadvertently distributed to hundreds of individuals in our division.
