  1. Apple Watch native app

    A native Apple Watch app, would make it easier to manage conversations , place calls, etc. on the watch vs using a smart phone/ or computer.

  2. Changing video background

    It would be great to be able to test and set your background without being in a meeting. It’s annoying that you can’t pre test and set it up

  3. Privacy

    Since this an app for government use on a personal device, privacy should be a number one priority. Full control of privacy should be on the user. I should be able to turn off the “Last time seen” that other users can see. Any other options that allow others to see any sort of status should be available to turn off.

  5. 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.

  6. Sign in

    I currently have to sign in several times a week on each device. It is annoying, but in the deployed environment it is really difficult. It would be nice to not need to get the texts so often to authenticate or to authenticate via civilian email.

  11. 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.

  14. 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

  15. 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…

  16. Please add Live Polling functionality to all Teams, Channels, Meetings, and Chats

    Teams should allow the ability to take live polls within any Team, Channel, Meeting or Chat; and then allow results to be posted to either the originator of the poll, or all participants (depending on settings).

  17. Tasks Accessible in Mobile App

    Tasks should be accessible in the mobile app. Right now, when I select a task tab in a channel, it opens the link in my internet browser, and the page it takes me to is extremely clunky and doesn't allow me to scroll through the takes details.

    I want to use the task tab for trouble tickets, which would all both those submitting and those managing trouble tickets to stay on top of progress on their mobile device. That capability is made significantly less convenient by how clunky the system currently is.

  18. It should not be lacking to much and it should use less Mobile data

    It should not be lacking too much and it should use less mobile data. This app needs too much mobile data which is really awful.
