      This would be really nice to have!

      I especially like the part of pizza in the conference room :)

        At least from what you've mentioned here, your needs are being worked on. The App exists and their working on adding the ability to join meetings.

          This! I'd love it if we could simply add our existing wiki as a tab. I mean, you kind of already can by creating a "website" tab, but maybe a mix between the two would be helpful.

              Agreed. I personally do not find this wiki helpful. Now, if they were to find a way to integrate this with say the Wiki that you can create an "app" in a SharePoint Site, that would be much more helpful.

                When it comes to Education, I heavily agree here! Having the ability to integrate into an LMS would be amazing!

                        Hi everyone — can you add more details as to exactly what you want for the time stamp on meetings? Do you mean that you want to know when someone created the meeting, and when other people accepted the meeting invite? Where would you want that information to populate — or where do you expect that it would?

                        Thanks for the info, and your patience while we review this!

                        Sincerely,
                        Suphatra

                              Hi everyone, quick update for you on this feature.

                              We’ve got lots of resources on this and we’re actively working on it. This is a top priority feature.

                              I haven’t gotten a firm ETA from the team but I can say this won’t hit in the next month or so. Its a complicated feature, so it will take longer than that. I’ll let you know once I get a general date from them.

                              Thanks for your feedback, patience, and as always, thank you for your support of Teams.

                              Sincerely,
                              Suphatra

                              Questions? Tweet me at @skprufo.

                              I think the "Secret" option is close to what we're looking for. At least for my purposes, I'd want to have a "secret" channel that's within a Team.

                              Arden Shackelford commented  · 

                              I don't see this workaround as helpful. Mostly because my use case has only 1-4 people needing access to a channel. Why create a whole new team for something like this?

                              Arden Shackelford commented  · 

                              I can't wait for this to be released! We're not even using this fully in my department, but this is a feature that is heavily requested!

                              Arden Shackelford commented  · 

                              This would be lovely to have, especially for some leadership type channels.

                                More good news on this front! This week we shared our official roadmap for convergence: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/Roadmap-for-Skype-for-Business-capabilities-coming-to-Microsoft/ba-p/119636

                                And here’s the PPT deck of the roadmap in case the GIFY makes you dizzy:

                                I've commented before about this but I wanted to come back and reiterate that getting this integrated will greatly assist in user adoption across businesses.

                                Arden Shackelford commented  · 

                                I agree with most of the comments here. User Adoption is slowed because of multiple apps for different things! I love Teams and want to use it heavily. Please look very closely at this and do what you can to integrate the two. Don't make "just another cool thing".

                                Josh said this very well. The point on inhibiting adoption is key. When you have companies working with 1 tool for 5+ years, getting them to move away from it is very difficult. You'll have those excited to move to a better tool and then you'll have others who ask "But I can chat and make calls with Skype for Business, so why move?".

                                I know it was mentioned in a similar post that the intent is to keep SFB and Teams separate entities but... as someone who supports my immediate department group, the end users need 1 thing, not multiple.

                                  Absolutely! I really think creating something that allows users to be in just 1 place as opposed to multiple would be extremely helpful.

                                  This would be absolutely wonderful!

                                  Arden Shackelford commented  · 

                                  I agree with both Magdy: A one stop shop app would be amazing. Especially for those who only need the basic functionality of most apps.

                                  At the same time, I agree with the others who mentioned how Teams could be slowed by integrating an email interface with Teams. I think providing it as an option, that’s disabled by default, would be a good way to go. That way you have the choice to make Teams your one stop shop or you can continue using the other apps as you see fit.

                                  I think this would really help with those who want to use teams, but don’t want to use multiple apps, begin using Teams as a one stop shop while still providing others with the option to use multiple apps if they see the need.

                                  I believe the mixed approach would be really good. I’d love to use Teams as a one stop shop as all I need (as well as many in my department) is the basic access to send and reply to emails.

                                  I hope that makes sense…

                                  This right here would sell me on everything Microsoft. If they did this, it would show really integrating all of their products for the users, not for money.

                                  At the same time, in my opinion, emails won't be the long standing means of communication. Things like Teams will one day eliminate emails. In the mean time however, I'd love to not have to have more than one tab open :)

                                    Hey everyone, I’m sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but the engineering team has let me know they’ve come up against some pressing resource restraints causing them to pause work on this item for the time being. So we’re moving this one to the backlog for now.

                                    However, this is not off our radar and certainly not off mine. We’ll continue to regularly revisit this item with the team, so please continue to lobby for more votes and add to the comments below. Every voice counts and helps. Thank you!!

                                    Sincerely,
                                    Suphatra

                                        1) In any chat where I've received new messages, I have to scroll down. Drives me nuts. If I need to scroll up to catch up, that's fine.
                                        2) Every day
                                        3) Laptop, Windows 10, Chrome (though I use the desktop app the most)

                                        Not sure why this wasn't set for the initial release?

                                          HI again, and thanks for your patience in between updates for this request. I know it’s been a while since I wrote.

                                          Last month we shared how Skype for Business will converge into Microsoft Teams. This week, we’ve shared some more information on exactly what features will come over. This one is one that we’ve been actively working on.

                                          For more information on the roadmap, see the blog post here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/Roadmap-for-Skype-for-Business-capabilities-coming-to-Microsoft/ba-p/119636

                                          And the roadmap PPT here: https://skypeandteams.blob.core.windows.net/artefacts/Skype%20for%20Business%20to%20Teams%20Capabilities%20Roadmap.pdf

                                          I’m trying to get an exact ETA on this feature’s ship date from the team — I haven’t secured it yet. But it is expected soon, so I’ll hopefully be posting good news soon.

                                          Thanks again for your patience, and most of all your support.

                                          Sincerely,
                                          Suphatra

                                          Suphatra,

                                          To simply answer your questions:

                                          1) I would prefer it to be synchronous with Skype for Business.
                                          2) Simple answer: User Adoption & no chat history for chats that are Teams to Skype For Business.

                                          2) Long Answer: Microsoft Teams feels like a soft launched product. Because you're not killing off Skype for Business, people will continue to use it while others in their organizations want to use Teams. The push has to come from either the organization or Microsoft to get full adoption of Teams within organizations. Until such a time, I feel like you will continue to have users who are using both products. That's just my thought anyway.

                                          Arden Shackelford commented  · 

                                          I think this is key, especially if an organization has multiple departments using either Teams or SFB. That way people are still able to see the statuses without having to open multiple applications.

                                          This may also help in a phase in of Teams and a phase out of SFB within some organizations.
