    Interested to see how Teams will be installed as a result of this upcoming change:

    I was really frustrated to see that the previous feedback was closed. Even more frustrated to find there is no way to query the closure/resolution.

    Reading the feedback, it was clear what was being asked for. Admins do not want installations into user profiles. I would love to hear Microsoft's reasoning behind this!!

    Not only does it consume unnecessary space in a users' profile, consume additional bandwidth for every download/update, it's just not manageable from an admin perspective.

    If someone uninstalls the app after it has been deployed via MSI, and then they want to start using it, we have to **** about with cleanup scripts on a per user basis? Why?

    What's wrong with a traditional program files installation?
    We are only just testing Teams, and before I'd even looked at deployment options, you know how I found out about it's install process? I was shadowing a user on a server that did not have it installed, and I saw they were running Teams! I had a look at the file location and it turned out it was in their profile. I was disgusted to see that this had been installed and used without our knowledge. Google saw the error of their ways with this and gave enterprises a proper MSI installer, why can Microsoft not do the same?

    Pretty much one of the very first things I went looking to add to our IT team, and could not find!

    We currently have a "Call out calendar" created in Excel, and have that added as a tab. It works, but would prefer a real calendar solution.

    Planner has a calendar view, which we thought about using, but have each "Call out" entry as a task is feasible.

    My god this is annoying. Who designs these products?

    Why contradict a UI paradigm that has existed for god knows how long? If I sort by a column, remember it and stick with it.
    If I sort alphabetically, go into a folder looking for something, then go back and it has changed my sort, I have to resort to find my next folder to look in........that's just dumb.
