  1. Allow "Website" App for SharePoint.com URL's in GCC

    It was previously stated that it is difficult for Microsoft to add the "Website" app to Microsoft Teams in GCC due to concerns over compliance. If opening up to any URL is a concern or difficult item to address, how about allowing links to *.sharepoint.com? This would allow users in Teams to have a more integrated experience and allow use of applications that are coming from trusted sources.

  4. Absencemodul

    We really enjoy Teams, it helps us a lot at School and in the lessons. But..as a teacher (and Teams admin) it would be really nice if you could implement a absencemodul in Teams. Then we teacher can register which absence a student have; in a time to time, day to day an week to week basis in the particular team/lecture. After each week then we could gather misc statistics of the absence.

  5. Enable PowerApps, PowerAutomate, and Forms Apps in Teams for GCC/Gov Customers

    Please enable the 1st party apps for Microsoft PowerApps, PowerAutomate (Flow), and Forms for GCC/Gov customers. GCC versions of these services exist but the Teams integrated apps are missing for GCC.

  6. Missing Web Parts on SharePoint Web Part Page

    On the back-end SharePoint Site when you create a new Web Part Page you only see 5 Categories. On a regular SharePoint Online page you get 13 Categories. I would like to be able to utilize all the Web Parts (especially the Business Data -> Excel Web Access).

  7. Number of Options increased in Forms

    I would like to have the number of Options increased in Forms.
    Our ministry of Education collect data on over 1000 schools and having this increase to 1000 or even to 200.
    This would be helpful in our collection of data Thank you.

  8. Status Dashboard for parity with non gov teams features

    Various connectors (Forms, 3rd party app connectors, one note until recently) are missing from Teams in Gov.
    We know that Gov teams lags behind the non-gov version, but the lack of a roadmap or page which clearly provides a status of what is and is not working in gov is making user support difficult.
    Our users read official Microsoft Teams documentation, see no additional insight about gov tenants, and expect features to work (like @forms quick-polls in chat, integration thru 3rd party connector to on on-prem git, etc, etc)

  9. Allow Teams Custom Apps/Bots in GCC

    Allow GCC customers the ability to upload custom apps/bots to Teams and enable the 'Manage Apps' section for GCC customers under 'Teams Apps' in the admin portal. Third party apps are now available (apparently), but custom apps aren't, doesn't make sense....

  14. Include Apple/iOS devices in the Mobile Office 365 pilot.

    Currently, only Android devices are in the Mobile Office 365 pilot. The ability to utilize Teams on government issued mobile devices to include all government mobile phones and pads and those devices should be included in the Mobile Office 365 Pilot to address any issues.

  16. Assignment page

    It is really annoying, because everytime you want to view the assignment, first you have to choose the channel. It would be much better if it was as before. Just view the newest assignments, so the people don't have to click on each channel to find it out.

  18. 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
