  1. Add ability to archive or export private chats and team conversations in a local format such as Word Doc

    Although you may highlight then copy a team conversation manually and paste into Word, there is much to be desired for archiving important conversations in a local format. If an agency has retention set to 3 days, you are out of luck on day 4 and the saved messages vanish. It is crucial for us to be able to archive chats and conversations with the growing reliance on teleworking and remote collaboration.

  3. Live Annotation Tools

    Having live annotation tools for Teams Meetings/Workshops where the attendees can give live input on the screen, similar to whiteboard capabilities. This would be helpful for keeping meetings and workshops interactive and brainstorming ideas.

    Teams iPad/iOS/GCC feature: Need the ability to pin multiple participants on the screen vs. just 1 currently. Also be able to show more than the 3+1 participants on the iPad. Ideally at least up to 9 participants.

  6. Switching channels from private to public or public to private

    Understanding that 'used' chats (any team/channel that has comments from other members besides the owner) may have privacy issues, it would benefit us (the owners/creators) that while figuring out how our team is to be built, we would be allowed edit rights to move channels from public to private, and private to public (especially when no one has submitted anything in there other than the owner). It's frustrating that one must go in and create a whole new channel with a modified name (because the old channel, regardless if it's been erased or not, is still using that original name),…

  7. 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…

  10. Notify assignee of new tasks in Planner in Teams for GCC

    I am astounded that Planner in Teams does not send any notification to the person assigned that they have a new task. Confoundingly, if anyone comments on any task, EVERYONE in the Team gets an email. Please fix this fundamental flaw that prevents Planner from functioning correctly in Teams for GCC.

  11. Would like the ability to turn off entering and exiting sounds during a meeting.

    Entering and exiting notification sounds are extremely distracting during a meeting - especially when the meeting is configured to allow everyone to pass thru the lobby. We need the ability for presenters and organizers to mute all entering and exiting notification sounds when the meeting has begun and the ability for the organizer to set a meeting to not have entering and exiting audible notification sounds.

  14. 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....

  15. Allow Guest Access in GCC

    An external user was successful in adding his personal account to a Team as a guest. However when he clicks on the link that was sent it will only open the Group SharePoint site and not in the Teams app nor the Teams website. Admin center shows this feature not available in GCC. Please update on roadmap or allow access to the channel or App.

  17. pop out chats

    With multiple chats going on at any given time and the inconvenience of jumping within Teams to various ongoing chats or other work, would really appreciate the ability to pop out chat sessions.
