    We really need this. I can echo other comments that I ignore notifications and chats because I lose my context when moving around the application. Teams reduces multitasking (maybe that's the goal, make us focus on one thing at a time more?). I typically pop out documents and work using the Desktop applications (Excel, Word, PowerPoint) instead of working within Teams because of this.

    What I prefer about Skype for Business UI is that I can have my chats or phone calls in a small screen that takes up less than 25% of my overall screen which I can push to the side while doing other work. Even on a full HD 1920x1080 resolution 15" screen I feel I need Teams to be full screen to see enough rows of chat. Plus teams is a beast for Telephone calls. When you minimize it, you loose all call control and keeping it large enough to see the dialer takes up a lot of space, or forces me to constantly resize teams so I can see other things. SfB is better here too.

    Argh. Yet another thing that Skype For Business does and Teams doesn't have yet. We're looking at transitioning and I keep feeling like while Teams is better at a lot of things, SfB is still better as a chat/phone client.

    I liked that Skype for Business had a small call control window that was always on top even if SfB was minimized.

    I've been asking for this in Skype for Business and was hoping Teams would have it. We want to be able to block a number company wide, not just have each end user do it.

    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.

    We really need this. We're using teams more and more internally, but want to use it to collaborate with clients. We want to keep everything related to a client in one team, with one channel for internal collaboration, and another channel for internal and client facing collaboration. Creating separate teams means more disjointed document storage. Not a good situation to be in.

    Adding a "Me too". Being limited to basically one thing at a time (document, vs chat, vs meeting, etc.) makes it harder to stay productive.

    A bump from me. Teams is great... If you want your corporate documents spread out in their own little team siloes (which may make sense for certain sets of users, but not for others). I'd love a way to link to common SharePoint library subfolders so that the team can collaborate using the Teams tools but still store documents like Statements of Work and signed Contracts in common repositories that others will be able to search.
