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.
Hey Microsoft Teams users — I want you to weigh in on new features around channels and group chats. The engineering team and I have put together this survey to find out how you want to see channels improve. You can fill it out here: https://microsoft.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esTxHdABLQxKLvn
And I’m still waiting on approval to get you a good update about Private Channels. I can say that we ARE working on it, fervently.
You are amazing! I'm truly impressed with the level of communication that you have had regarding all of the ideas that we as a community have provided for Microsoft Teams. It is refreshing to see that our opinions really do matter, especially for a company as large as Microsoft. Keep up the great work!
Awesome, thanks Suphatra! I'm looking forward to this feature. Also, thank you for providing consistent updates on this product.
This feature is still being reviewed by the feature team. No decision has been made yet. I’ll keep you posted.
I honestly prefer having them separate. My Teams and Channels list is growing significantly. I think it would be cumbersome to have my private chats mixed in with my Teams.
This is in the works! Fill out this survey if you want to influence the feature: https://microsoft.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esTxHdABLQxKLvn
Due to a priority shift this request has slipped to the backlog. I hate to bring bad news. I will continue to provide the feature team your feedback and votes.
Hopefully this will move back up in the queue soon.
Unfortunately due to re-prioritization this item has slipped back onto the “backlog” for the time being.
I hope to see it move back into “working on it” soon and will continue to engage the feature team with your feedback.
You can remove a channel from your Favorites, then it disappears from the main list and drops under a "more channels" link at the bottom of your team. This is how I've been "archiving" channels that my team has used for projects.
Hi there, just letting you know what we are still working on request #5 which is the ability to get reminders for your Planner tasks in Teams.
Everything else on this list is done, but if you have other Planner asks that you’d like to see address, please comment below with the URL for that feature requests (then I can merge all these UserVoice requests to this one master request). Then I’ll update the body of this request with all of the new feature requests related to Planner.
I know a number of people were excited as this suggestions, however the feature team reviewed this request and it has been declined.
