    This feature request is still being actively worked upon. Good progress is being made, but I cannot share any additional details at this time.

    While we work on our Whiteboard you can also try the third party whiteboard app Freehand by Invision that can be found by clicking the Store icon from within Teams and go to the app gallery.

    Thank you for all the feedback and suggestions.

    Make this feel as if it were the Google Docs of whiteboarding. That should be the gold standard.

    Additionally: Build this *as a platform*... If you are going to build interactive elements, build a platform that developers can use to create their own shared experiences for users.

    As a PM, this is huge--I use this several times a week when I have tough-to-track-down devs/PMs that aren't local to me (aka I can't just go stop by their office) and are frequently not available

    matshe@microsoft.com commented  · 

    Definitely not a Must-have (just having tagging is much more important), but: I wish that I could tag someone for a question later and add note text. I often have multiple people that I need to track down at once for different things and would be great to tag someone, add a reason and then have that note reappear next to the status change would be awesome.

    Hugely important--managing multiple projects with diverse constituents, this can be one of the only ways to get ahold of particularly calendar-heavy people. As I get deeper integrated into Skype for Business, this is becoming more of a daily driver for me (~2-3 year user of SfB)

    This would be very helpful actually. As a minimum, I'd like to be able to define someone as a "Partner"/"Stakeholder" *on the Outlook group level* to be able to send emails to that tier whenever we have a larger announcment as opposed to "Admins"/"Working members". This also would make it easier for people to identify who in a group is a regular and who just depends on the group, etc.

    Hi folks, we are collecting feedback on this so we can determine prioritization and user need.

    Please comment in the thread below about how this affects you, how you currently add members, and who you think would benefit from this in your organization.

    Thank you!

    Do DL updates automatically perpetuate to the team? If not then this story isn't fully wrapped up. I've been feeling this already where we've added a DL to our team, but anyone new we have to remember to add--and remove if people leave.

    Next level would be to recommend top teams based on your AAD structure/role. Don't spam here: suggest only top teams with a certain threshold.

    Many of these hierarchically-based teams you should be automatically added to if it's from a DG. :(

    The feature is still being worked upon. Many different changes are going into Teams and will provide a slow but steady pace to our performance increases.

    I don’t have any new details at the moment but hope to get some additional feedback in the next several weeks.

    This feature is still being reviewed by the feature team. No decision has been made yet. I’ll keep you posted.

    Two thoughts here:

    (1) Switching back and forth between chats and teams feels heavyweight and slow. I agree that there needs to be better continuity here, honestly probably just on one tab.

    (2) The Activity tab is extremely heavyweight feeling. I don't think that it should be a tab, to be honest, but would much better be suited as a notification flyout, similar to how facebook handles their three notification areas. Being able to click on that, see activity, click on it and go to that place would seem much lighterweight, even if it still had a control or two for filtering, etc. Right now, it just feels too big and slow to justify being a full tab.

    I’m so happy to share an update with you! The feature team has let me know that they are working hard at this and are aiming for a spring time release.

    Please comment below if you might be interested in testing or TAP, and include the industry, company size, and location of your org. We would likely want to hit a very wide range of demographics.

    Thanks,
    Suphatra

    Don't use this feature much and haven't yet felt a need for calendar integration.

    Just thought of a definite use case: trying to find someone who is around who could answer a question. Right now this is tough virtually and it would be helpful to be able to quickly see--who is active from this channel (Where I know people that might be able to answer this question) that I can quickly message? This would help answer that question. Right now, it's tough and after recognizing it, this is a big gap in making this sticky/useful.

    matshe@microsoft.com commented  · 

    Main reasons:

    (1) First off, for fun, to feel that you are actually together in a place.
    (2) It's impossible to tell who's in a channel, how to add / remove them. I honestly never have an idea, don't feel confident that an @ mention "adds" someone to a channel.
    (3) Could be helpful to know how likely you are to receive a message, whether the right people are listening.

    Two implementations that I see:

    (1) It *could* actually show who is on *this channel*, right now, not just in Microsoft Teams. (who is actively participating in conversations, though this may be a lie becuase people can jump back and forth around channels. Perhaps a person's presence actually trails them through channels, meaning that they show up in a channel (a) if they're looking at it right now OR (b) if they've commented/been on the channel in the last two minutes UNLESS they've truly closed Microsoft Teams or have knowingly left. I kind of like that and it does show where someone is present in a more real sense as you frequently may be moving across channels, not just in one)

    This could be interpreted as "whoever is "nearby"/has recently been here (and hasn't fully left". This is the group that likely will see what you're posting unless you @mention the channel.

    (2) It could show, which members of this channel have Microsoft Teams open right now (who will get a notification right now if you @mention the channel)

    There are dangers here that some people may not want to post if certain people are / are not present, etc. But they may not be hugely tangible. Just be aware that this introduces real-life social issues in a new way that may be worth a little consideration.

    matshe@microsoft.com commented  · 

    Both to see who all is involved in a channel and who is currently present.

    I would need to use this more to give very good feedback.

    Private channels may still be important. It is way too heavy to create this many private teams on the fly. :( Channels are supposed to be more light way, ways to have a conversation on the fly. Perhaps the encouragement should be towards group chat instead? Though there some might lose needed functionality that a channel has?

    Not sure I would want this. Don't rebuild Outlook, not at this point. Just encourage Outlook to keep getting more modern for now.

    Not just a single instance. This would be really helpful for getting things done just in Microsoft Teams but working with multiple documents/chats at once.
