    We’re pleased to confirm the Teams client for Linux will be available in preview by the end of this calendar year, enabling people who use Linux client at work or in educational institutions to collaborate with others on Teams. Users will be able to install native Linux packages in .deb and .rpm formats.

    Thanks!

    This is an issue that makes people very frustrated with Teams. In fact, many users simply don't use Teams because they don't get notified when someone sends a message in a channel. I can tell people constantly to be sure to turn on notifications for each channel you care about. But people forget that or some don't get the message. On by default would make much more sense.

    I understand that sometimes you don't care about a given channel and don't want notification. But weighing the two, I think it's more important to get notifications by default and turn it off if you want to. You could give a channel creator a checkbox to set the default when creating the channel. And/or, make it an owner option for the Team.

    I can understand why this is not the default. There are times when not everyone in a team cares about a given channel. Example, the Legal Dept Team may have a channel for each case. Everyone doesn't care about ALL cases. Just their own. As soon as MS grants this request and makes "follow this channel" the default, they'll get a new request like this one asking them to make it NOT the default.
    I think it should be a global setting set either in the Teams Admin Center or a parameter that is requested when a team is created. So the team creator can decide what is the default. Also, when someone creates a channel, they can decide then if everyone in the team needs to follow the channel or not.

    I totally agree. Follow should be the default. In fact, there should be a powershell cmdlet that lets me follow a team channel and the corresponding office 365 group.

    Yes. Please allow owner to clear the "This message has been deleted. Undo" messages. The reason they were deleted, is that we don't want them to show up any more. It's okay to keep them in a recycle bin for content searches. But there should be a retention policy that allows them to be auto-purged after some time.

    I'm ok with the way it is now as long as the notifications show me where there's a new message. The Activity window would be much more useful if it showed new activity in both Chats and Teams. Then Activity would be the one-stop-shopping for conversations in Teams.

    I appreciate Samuel Sze showing the examples of how Slack and HipChat do it. I don't use those but now I can see the usability there. So I voted for this. However, once you get a lot of teams and channels and chats going, it would get pretty crowded. Then I would prefer to see it the way it is now.

    Just click on “Files” tab from inside the channel, and then click the “New” button. A drop down will appear — select “Folder”.

    Yes. I'd like a connector or bot to allow emails to the O365 Group address to be forwarded to the general channel of the team and replies to those emails to be emailed out as replies to the incoming email.

    It appears that MS Teams is meant to run as a separate app to O365 Groups. I'd like it to be a combination of O365 Groups functionality and Teams all in the same app.
