Still under review by the feature team. Nothing new to report at this time.
Its clear Teams is a golden egg here. Some of these rather 'small' requests often have more of an impact than the larger ones. Its all about polish in the app, and being able to group teams, is incredibly important for larger organizations.
Its already possible, because Teams auto-hide's low used teams within the 'hidden' group, so clearly it can be done. Please push this forward as it makes more of a difference than you may realize. This and and easy toggle to sort all (or independently within said groups) by alphabetical order, etc.
The team is currently working on this. I will let you know when I have more updates.
Multi-window chat is in testing. I hope to have great news regarding rollout to the public rings soon.
We are working to ensure that multi-window and other future multi-window experiences are of the highest quality when they release.
This is working today in the web client on Edge & Chrome. The team is actively investigating feasibility in the desktop client.
This continues to be on our backlog due to prioritization of other work items. We will update when there is more to share.
As stated in the last update, the ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is being implemented in stages for Desktop. Faster tenant switching functionality on the Windows client has been rolled out to the public ring fully, and Mac will begin rolling out soon. Work is in progress on cross-tenant notification improvements, and support for multiple accounts on desktop will follow. We’ll keep you posted!
Note: The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today.
Alex & the Teams team
This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.
Please know the team is actively working on this feature.
Great performance and user experience remain a topmost priority for us. Application launch time has seen improvements in the recent build. We will continue making improvements across the product including channel to chat switching and overall resource consumption.
IT Admin’s now have the ability to configure apps on the left navigation of Microsoft Teams. You can learn more about that feature here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/MicrosoftTeams/teams-app-setup-policies
As announced at Ignite we are currently working on enabling desktop users to add personal or favorite apps to their own left navigation.
Where is the update here? Half my tenants have the 'Teams app' setting in Team Admin Portal, and half do not. I was under the impression that allows you to customize what shows up on the left hand navi pane...
When I go to add "Saved" to the left, nothing happens. Apparently, still broken. Fix and/or update this thread asap. Way to long for such a feature...
We have raised the priority of this work item, and it is currently being worked on. We don’t have any dates to share at this point, but will update when we have new status. Thank you!
What's the hold up guys? Had a customer change a channel name via the SharePoint folder view during mid-rollout and they're freaking out and basically had us stop half way into this to evaluate the project....Seriously.
This feature request is working its way through the backlog queue. No new details are available yet.
This item remains on the backlog.
We are working on a design with more density in mind. Until this design is solidified we are putting this item back to Under Review.
Your handling of threads in channels are far superior to how Slack handles them, please do not go that route for the sake of space. There's a ton of other space/padding that can be addressed to allow for more content to be seen while still being clean and professional.
This + standardizing a proper sticker/emoji size would go a long way.
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
Adding email as a left tab panel remains under review. We are working on adding several Teams and email integrations:
- Share to Teams: Share a copy of an email and any attachments into a chat or channel directly from Outlook
- Share to Outlook: Share a copy of a channel or chat conversation via email directly from Teams
- Actionable Teams Activity Emails: Teams missed activity emails display the latest replies and allow you to reply directly from Outlook
See this post for more information:
Originally, I think the idea of living in a single app was really exciting. But for years, new chat apps, along with the arrival of Slack was the promise of killing email forever. The more I think about it, the more Teams does eliminate the need for email, or should I say, keeps email 'formal' while all the constant barrage of communications are handled via Teams. I think people want Teams/Slack to get away from email, so bringing email inside Teams, is counter to what makes the app great to begin with.
Teams needs to give us that complete view of what's offered within the Office 365 Group its built off of. At the moment, getting the Calendar & Conversation (The Groups 'conversation' should be the 'general' channel inside the Team tbh) is the most important. Once you can live inside the app and have 1:1 parity with the Group its built off of the better it'll be...
Maybe making 'OWA' a potential tab or connector is better than trying to integrate it deep into the app itself. Don't.
