For this item, we’re making great progress. It has now entered TAP validation with a small group of tenants. Will let you know how that goes!

I would be great with a palet of widgets to customize this dashboard - like the possibility to show some elements from Power BI, Tasks from VSTS, general feed from teams and custom elements like graphics etc. Like a front-page of the project...
Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.
