Hey everyone — Suphatra’s back! And I’m on the case with this item.
I talked to engineering and I think they don’t understand this request. The requests says “Admin App” — do you mean Admin Center? The O365 portal?
Also, what exactly do you envision for central administration — for example — what can you do now, can’t do, and would like to do with this new feature.
Your feedback will help me get the team to put more resources into this. Thank you!
My take on central administration of Teams is this: for an internal communicator, I have absolutely no oversight of how Teams is used to communicate.
In Yammer, I can set up keywords, I can monitor groups, I can suggest best ways to use the service, and I can see what groups exist. In teams, I can't do any of this – I have to engage IT each and every time I need something done.
Teams needs an admin portal 'in teams' for 'teams administrators', which let's us manage the communities that exist in Teams. It doesn't need the IT'y things like calling quality etc – leave that where it is.
This is currently in Preview – planned to release very soon.
In the following weeks, Teams will be rolling out support on Safari 11+ on macOS. While in preview, there are known issues with Safari’s ITP mode and it is advised that users disable Safari’s Intelligent Tracking Prevention.Anonymous commented
Is it just one person working on this as a side project or something? Surely it's not that hard... Especially seeing that here's the workaround...
Go to Safari > Develop > User Agent > Google Chrome - macos.
So again, what's the hold up?
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.
Integration with Skype Consumer is no longer under review, and officially planned.
Updating this topic to reflect that the focus is now on the additional search functionality since the other pieces of the original request have been completed.
Here is the originally summary below:
Items 2, 3, 4, and 5 have been completed and released.
1) universal search function for files, messages, chats, and groups
2) directly send invite to join teams, instead of chat only option
3) ability to create new team, project, or group
4) view calendar/schedule inside app
Hi Everyone – thank you for your patience. As was commented by someone below, Suphatra is no longer at Microsoft, but rest assured we are working on this feature.
