  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.

  5. Sensitivity labels management for Teams within the administration portal

    It would be really helpful to be able to manage sensitivity labels for Teams within the Teams administration portal compared to only being able to manage them in the Teams client currently. Our organisation manages the creation of Teams for the business and does not have a direct user driven creation process, this allows the organisation to enforce policy standards and compliance.

  6. Login schedule for android mobile app

    Would be nice to apply schedules when your teams app is logged in or out. Use case Same principle like email apps have for syncing working hours/ peak hours.

  7. Permitir o apagamento de mensagens.

    Apagar mensagens permite controlar o fluxo de mensagem lidas, deixando apenas as importantes. Num grupo o fluxo de mensagens é intenso. Fica difícil saber onde paramos a leitura.

  8. Teans Breakout Room functions for all presenters

    Anyone identified a presenter in a Microsoft Teams meeting should have the ability to create breakout rooms and jump to different breakout rooms. Only allowing the creator of the meeting limits any support staff.

  10. GCC - Breakout room enhancement

    Allow multiple organizers so when using breakout rooms, more than one person can bounce from room to room without the one organizer having to manually move support from room to room. Having multiple organizers helps when there is more than one person delivering a training or facilitating a meeting/event.

    Give the ability of the team/channel owner to remove the general chat from a channel and set an app in its place. If you have a channel called daily reports of a MS Form, you don't want users to dig for that form, just go to that channel and the form is the first thing they see. There are so many use cases for this.

  13. @mention specific list item in GCC chat or channel post.

    It would be great if a team member could @mention a specific list item in the context of the channel posts or a chat message. This would better integrate Lists with the rest of teams in a similar manner to how one can reference a document or a person.

  14. Enable cross Team tagging to share information.

    My current Team is the 'alpha' team, this is where I do the bulk of my work.

    However, I'm also a member of the 'bravo' team where I'm also heavily involved.

    For the most part, there is no need for the alpha and bravo team to collaborate or share files etc.

    However! On occasion there is the need for me to share what has been posted on the opposite Team.

    Hey @alpha, have you seen this cool info that @bravo have posted up?

    Currently MS Teams are very, very heavily siloed; it's equally right and appropriate to be a member…

  15. Stay signed in

    I use the teams chat for an important group and I am constantly signed out of teams. I rely on a lot of these notifications for my job and aprproving risk assements. When I have been signed out I don't get any notifications. Make it an option to stay signed in! And make more than one option to verify your account.

  16. Support blocking presence from included or excluded list of users within the same tenant and/or federated tenant.

    DoD needs the block presence capability IAW UCR and as worded currently in Teams: i.e. "When you block someone, they can't call you from a one-on-one chat, @mention you in a one-on-one chat, or see your presence." This is not supported in DoD or GCC as stated in the application.

    Would like to see channels on Teams have a pop out feature. Some users have asked if they can have a channel pop out as a new window to reference documents or other material as needed without leaving their primary channels that are being worked on.

  18. Get rid of rapists in GIFs

    When you search, "Jello," in GIF's, there's an option featuring Bill Cosby. I get the connection but really? Let's stop giving that convicted serial ****** any platform, please.

    Allow setting on phone to only use WiFi. Had work vc and forgot mobile data on. now have 85% of monthly quota used in 1x day. Why is there no feature banning using mobile data on Android?
