    Cross functional indexing came up in the Teams Tuesday meeting today. Being able to search for content between OneNote and the Wiki tab. I added the following...

    Seth and Christopher, indexing content is a big deal. For instance, I'd like to search for a card we're using in the planner. The ideal way to do this is to simply enter a name or support ticket number in the search bar, but that doesn't work with the planner.

    So here is the funky work-around we are currently using:

    1) EVERY time a new card is created be sure searchable meta data (support ticket number, client name, person's name) is included in the name of the card,

    2) copy a link to the card,

    3) go to the Conversation tab, and paste the link. We have just self-indexed the planner card. Now when we want to find the card we

    4) enter the person's name or support ticket number into the search bar, and it locates the linked conversation,

    5) we click on the found conversation, and it opens in the conversation tab, where we now see the link to the related planner card and we

    6) click on the link, which then generally opens the link in the browser, and asks us if we want to open it in the Teams web app or desktop app. We

    7) click on the desktop app and

    8) the appropriate card opens...

    It would be SO MUCH NICER to be able to have the planner card indexed and searchable. BUT at least we figured out a way to do it while we're waiting.

    Completely agree. It is way too complicated to get a guest to join, when this is a one-time customer support type activity. I'm disappointed at how difficult we have made it to use this product except for our own organization.

    Agree. We have clients now, who join Skype for Business meetings using the web app, no problem. If we have to go through account creation for these types of users, it won't work.

    By comparison we try to share a document in SharePoint with a user and give them edit control. 75% of the time this fails because of their confusion in needing to accept access to our AD, and then needing to accept access to the document, and needing to sign in with or create a Microsoft account. I am close to giving up on this.

    If you can't make it as easy and simply sending the meeting (or document in SharePoint) invite to an external user, and have them click on the link to confirm they have access, we need to find an easier to use solution for our external one-time and occasional users.

    The feature team is still digging into the details of this item. I don’t have an update yet, but all your feedback and votes are shared with the feature team every month.
    I’ll keep pushing this item and hope to have more details soon.

    My documents open in Word or Excel Online, and I can print from there. I don't have to download the document.

    This is still in the works. I don’t have a timeline yet, but I hope to have some more details to share in the coming weeks.

    I know how important this and am working on getting more feedback for you.

    And then on the flip side we have Google Chrome and Firefox pushing everyone in the opposite direction TO https. I have mixed feelings. You can integrate LetsEncrypt, and it costs you nothing for your certs.

    Hi everyone, the engineer working on this item has left the company and we’re working on replacing him. I wanted to give you that heads up because the work has paused, which extends our shipping date.

    I really appreciate your patience as we work to get this back to actively worked on.

    The ability to remove a user from group chats (including meeting chats) is now available on desktop, and coming soon to mobile.

    How it works: A user can go to any group chat of 3 or more people and navigate to the roster and by hovering over any user you will see the “X”. Clicking on this will show a confirmation dialog. Then the user must select remove to remove the user. 

    What does everyone see: Everyone in the chat will see the control message that says “User A removed User B from the chat”. 

    What does the removed user see: The removed user will still have access to the chat history but will no longer see new messages after the point of removal and will not be able to compose messages or make any changes to the chat.

    Note: This setting is controlled by your tenant admin, so may or may not…

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    Hi everyone — we have implemented this on the web version.

    We will not be implementing it in the desktop app or mobile app due to other high priority engineering items.

    Let me know if you have any questions!
