  1. Overall dashboard for planner in teams

    In teams it would be nice to have a consolidated roll up of planner events. If it showed just a percentage and the name of the planner group would be helpful.

    I would like to have the number of Options increased in Forms.

  3. We need there to be some sort of portal for live meetings so attendees can register for the events like other webinar software has.

    Once you create a live meeting there is no way to know who plans to attend the event live. There is only the attendee engagement report once the meeting is over. I know that at my agency at the least, there is a requirement that they need to know who is coming to the event and what organization they work for. Without this feature we will never be able to utilize Teams for live events. We love every other aspect of Teams live events compared to other webinar software out there but those other software has registration portals. This is…

  4. 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)

  6. Join teams together

    Most of our teams are low level operations and often interdepartmental. Sometimes how ever there is a higher level requirement and cross departmental. This currently means setting up a new team and having someone manage all the members. This is way to much work when you consider that the members are already there in the lower level groups, therefore I think there is a strong need for a tool that can group teams together.

  7. 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).

  9. Rename option for all associated parts of a Team.

    Need for an Admin to be able to rename Team name, OneNote, Planner, O365 Group, OneDrive, E-Mail.. etc . Basically one option for all associated parts of an O365 / Team.
    I opened a case with Microsoft Support and the answer was this is not an option and not recommended.

  10. 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.

  12. reminder

    Setup the option to create automated reminders such as
    "meeting in 30 minutes"
    "Timecards are due at 2pm"

    Etc.

    Slack and other tools have a /remind command for this.

  16. Login schedule for android mobile app

  17. Bookings access

    Bookings would be incredibly useful for Gov clients that need to schedule time with customers. Consultations, animal shots, and others would be wonderful.

  18. CRITICAL SECURITY BUG - Group chat history option not working!!!

    When adding new members to an existing group chat the history is shown even when selecting the option not to show history. This is a critical bug that needs to be attended ASAP. We have now guest members that have full insight and history in a sensitive group chat.

    Furthermore, there is no option to correct the error by deleting the history and/or removing the member from this group chat!!

    THIS IS NOT OK!!

  20. Meetings - screen sharing - switching screens/apps

    When sharing a screen and changing from sharing an app to a screen, or an app to an app, or a screen to an app, you shouldn't have to end the sharing session to change so that the transition is less jarring.
