For me this has another factor as well. Many of my PDFs are cut off at the bottom when using the built-in PDF viewer. So to view the full pdf I have to download the file from Teams to my explorer, look at it (and if necessary edit it) and then upload a new version. This is just an unnecessary hassle in my opinion.
Would be great if something could be done about this.
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.
When using Teams together with clients, I always need a duplicate team with only internal people. Because not every discussion about a project should be visible to clients.
For me, making certain channels within a team secret (not even their existence being visible to non-channel-members) is a crucial feature.
This feature request is still in the works. I hope to have more updates soon. I’ll keep you posted.
I really like the suggestion of creating an alarm on a message, so you come back to it. I’ve passed this on to our engineering team.
Meanwhile, here’s another feature you can utilize for the same purpose — use our “bookmark” button, which is in the upper right corner of every message. This will save that message or thread directly to your profile. To access your saved messages, just click your face in the upper left corner of the product. You’ll see a tab in the left rail that says “Saved.” This is like a list of little reminders.
Hope that helps! :-)
Would love to have an option to have a weekly/biweekly/... reminder for something!
