We are happy to announce that this feature has started rolling out to the public ring – you should see it soon!
It looks like some people in the thread below have figured it out — we actually have this. You can start a chat both ways; the system will automatically recognize if this person is on Skype for Business or on Teams.
Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.

I am on Teams only mode and can't message someone using Skype for Business as it finds their Teams client even if they are not signed in. They get message saying your teammates are trying to reach you in Teams.
If the island mode user starts the conversation using their SfB client, it works and I get the message in Teams client.
We currently have users who have migrated to Teams only mode while others are in Islands mode but do not frequently use Teams hence, they end up never seeing the message.
If its possible to add a feature where an user who is on Teams only mode can choose whether to send the message to Skype or Teams instance of the Islands mode user, this will make the migration experience smoother.
While the expectation for a Islands mode user to use both clients is ideal and a lot of users do that, same can’t be expected of each user and hence, breaks down the communication chain.

This feature request is still being actively worked upon. Good progress is being made, but I cannot share any additional details at this time.
While we work on our Whiteboard you can also try the third party whiteboard app Freehand by Invision that can be found by clicking the Store icon from within Teams and go to the app gallery.
Thank you for all the feedback and suggestions.
This feature request is still working its way through the backlog queue.

The team is still reviewing this item. I hope to know of a decision soon.
We know you are patiently waiting for this feature. This feature is being implemented in stages. Fast tenant switching is currently in testing both internally and with early customers. We expect to release to the public in the Fall. I’ll post an update once it’s rolling out.
Full multi-tenant, multi-user support will be added after fast tenant switching.
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.
Thanks to everyone who volunteered for testing the Office 365 group calendar. The TAP team will be reaching out as we are closer to being ready.
Screen share for Chrome is internal testing, and we are hoping to release it this quarter. We’ll keep you posted.
Thanks for following our suggestion to vote this up on SharePoint. It worked! SharePoint has confirmed that they have already started working on this and I’ll be getting an ETA from them after the holidays. -Suphatra

I would like the ability to
1) link an existing Sharepoint site to MS Teams
2) link a folder inside a document library (not the root of document library) as the default location for uploading files or creating channels
Hey everyone! We have this already. Just click the ellipses next to the thread name and select “Hide”.
Note that we cannot provide a “hard delete” due to eDiscovery and other legal reasons.
