  1. Safe share

    I need to be able to share my ‘safe’ folder with my Mum...so she can view and see all her passwords.

    She finds it difficult to keep track of passwords. I need to input her passwords into my safe...and to be able to share the safe with Mum...so whatever I update, she can see.

    This is my No.1 and only main use for Teams. I thought this would be possible? I can’t find a setting anywhere to make this possible?

    Please fix ASAP. Thanks.

  3. Voice Messages Need a Lot More Work...

    The voice messaging feature needs more work. Right now it's so inferior to the voice message experience on WhatsApp.


    1. If I'm listening to a voice note on my iPhone and I lock my screen, then the voice note stops playing. In my personal life I receive many voice messages (some of them more than 3-4 minutes long) from my friends and family that I want to hear while taking a walk or doing things. It's impossible to do it if the voice message stops playing when I lock my screen. This doesn't happen in WhatsApp, Messenger, etc. I'm not playing…

  4. Calendar

    Group calendar events should trigger an notification for all users on time of event. Not just at the creation of the event.
    Now it is just the event creator that gets a mail notification if he joins his own event.

  5. Bring actual teams with channels in the consumer app

    The organisation version is a very capable and powerful app that unfortunately is not available for the professional non-corporate consumers that want to colaborate with others (the ones who are not a part of a company). In my opinion, I don't think that this version of Teams will be used just for casual chat and needs some more features from the org version, like actual teams with channels and different threads with apps and files. The current group chats are preety similar to a Skype group chat with some extra features and even though they might work well for some…

  6. Teams and Channels

    Add ability to create Teams and Channels like the organisation version.

    Chat alone is too restrictive if you want to organise and collaborate on events and projects in a family.

    Or at least allow paid upgrade to use this function.

    Maybe rename them to something like Groups or Projects.

  9. Teams for Kindle Fire

    Would really like to be able to access TEAMS on my Kindle Fire so I can attend work meetings not always sat at my desk which isn't located somewhere that I feel comfortable using my camera.

  11. The Teams Consumer/Personal account and the email account can't share the same phone number

    I associated a personal Live.com account with Teams Consumer and it asked for my phone number which I provided. Now I am having trouble accessing my email on the same and other live.com / outlook.com / office 365 accounts because I get the error "Someone else has claimed ownership of [phone number]. You'll need to use a different username next time you sign in." With a link below "I still own [phone number]. And then I add it back, but then afterwards, Teams Consumer stops working, asking to associate my phone number again.

    It doesn't make sense that the Teams…

  13. Link previews

    Similar to GroupMe or another similar apps, add link previews! For example, when you share a Twitter link, show a little snippet of the tweet and media, if there's any.

  15. Allow Monday as first day of the week

    In Europe many regard Monday as first day of the week in a calendar. Please make that an option. Otherwise confusing.

  20. Remove Phone Number Requirement for Personal Microsoft Accounts

    Teams for Personal Life requires a user to have a phone number with SMS to use/SISU to the App. Being that this is Teams for Personal Life/Family, our hope was that we could use this in place of Skype to communicate with our children. However, I am unable to sign my children who don't have phone numbers into the App...

    Which makes it useless to our family.

    We had actually started using Slack earlier in the year, but stopped and decided to wait for Teams to be ready (which of course took longer than expected), I even moved my kids…
