  2. Allow use of the default list view for sharepoint teams integration

    When adding a SharePoint tab in a channel on teams, you can select a list. Great, except for the fact it doesn't use any of the views we have created, it just defaults to a standard view with only a portion of the applicable data fields. It would be great if Teams could use the default view set up for SharePoint lists.

  4. Allow creation of meetings for a Private Channel ONLY

    Many folks in organization have private channels for management. From lower management executive private channels. We wish to create a video conference/meeting for a specific private channel only. Currently only Public Channels have this option. This is huge and I cant imagine others not needing this. We also hold specialized training for specific individuals who are part of a private group. We cant create these training sessions by simply sending meeting to specific private channel. Only work around is individually typing everyone’s name. We have over 35k employees. This seems like it would have been implemented from day one but…

  5. Increase the number of videos during Team meetings from 4 to around 25.

    Currently only 4 cameras are shown during a Teams meeting. We need to have up to 25 people showing instead of them rotating as they speak.
    Also we need to be able to mark at least 4 people as always showing if the number of attendees goes over the max limit, such as the suggested 25 viewers.

  7. Allow administrators to block "call me" options in Teams meetings while allowing organizers to call attendees.

    The 'call me' option for attendees in teams is costing a fortune in PTSN calls. Administrators need the ability to turn this option off, while still allowing meeting organizers to add dial out to phone users/numbers.

  10. Give control to All during Shared Presentation

    During my pdf or web shared link presentation...I want to enable All my students to be able to share control during presentation. Now we have to enable only one person at a time.

    If it’s possible to have a feature to Enable All, so simultaneously students can work collaboratively to solve an online exercise.

  14. Add possibility to group channels

    First let us thank you for this fantastic app! In our company we are using teams for software development where we have different channels for the current topics like features / bugs / SCRUM and some general topics. To keep an overview it would be nice if there would be a possibility to group channels together.

  15. Be able to unhide conversation

    Create option to unhide conversations. What’s the point of saving them if we can’t go back to them? Working in a large company, you don’t know everyone, so when someone new sends you something, have a hard time remembering their name.

  16. Disable the automatic start up when you sign on and redesign the UI

    Disable the automatic start up. It takes too long. Redesign the UI. It’s clunky looking and not intuitive

  19. Improve Sign Up/Sign Experience for New External Users

    I had a bad Teams day trying to get external users into Teams from a client project team.

    In terms of competitors, I think Basecamp is a good, clear and reliable user experience: 1) invite the user via email, 2) they verify and 3) they sign in. The email doesn't matter.

    The Teams external user experience is very far removed - please make it a simpler and better experience - it is after all usually the first experience a new user has of Teams.

    I always advocate either SharePoint of Teams on the projects I work on - but the…
