    This feature is still in the works. There was some adjustments to the overall strategy.
    I’ll try to get some additional details and share them with you.

    I love Teams, but the fact that it's not in the Store is a serious pain point. This has layers of repercussions, most of which are along the lines of, "Microsoft is a bunch of scattered fiefdoms all fighting with each other. Why would I use any product from a company that doesn't even believe in its own systems for app distribution?" That's not directly a criticism of Teams, which is probably why this topic doesn't have more votes, but it adversely affects a lot of us and undermines the entire MS ecosystem. Whether that view is right, or even a rational concern, Microsoft makes it hard on all of us responsible for administering these systems when it can't be internally consistent. All MS apps should be in the store, share a consistent design language (look and feel), and work properly with each other. Row in the same direction, guys!

    The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today. The feature team is continuing to work on support for multiple accounts on desktop. We’ll keep you posted as we have more details.

    Note that a work-around many of us use is to use the new Edge "Install this site as an app" to use the web version of Teams for each additional Teams account (one per tenant). BUT this is not a great solution because of the many missing features and limitations of the web version (no screen share in Chat, no pop-out chat, no indication of which window is being shared in a meeting, only 1 video feed at a time in a meeting vs 49 in the desktop application, etc.). This should be like Outlook's support for multiple simultaneous unrelated Exchange Server connections. I would even be fine if the only way to do this required each Microsoft Tenant run in its own separate memory-isolated Teams application (this would be a memory hog, but for those of us doing consulting with multiple clients, we probably have more RAM than average users), just so long as I can run every company in desktop Teams at the same time.

    Thank you for your continued feedback. The feature team is reviewing this ask and working on a solution for team templates without content, as well as considering ways to create teams from template with content (i.e. files, etc.). We will share an update as soon as one is available.

    This would be nice sometimes to find a conversation. I wouldn't ever want this to be the default, but would be nice to help when searching sometimes.

    We are happy to announce that the New Conversation Button has started to roll to the general public, and should be rolled out 100% over the next week or so. We will share another update as soon as one is available.

    Absolutely agree with the other recent comments: discussions are lost and fragmented because people (even experienced IT people and developers) accidentally start a new conversation instead of hitting the Reply button/link. Some of these are obviously intended to be replies, like "Yes, let's do it that way.". That has ZERO MEANING as a new conversation, but makes perfect sense as a reply. I like Greg Ewing's suggestion of making the Reply look more like a text entry area. It should be just as easy (maybe easier) to respond to an existing thread than to start a new one. Currently it requires an extra click, which subtly discourages replying (we all naturally go to the text entry field and start typing).

    This problem is compounded by the lack of ability to rename a Team (including the corresponding SharePoint site). This means that the only way to rename a Team now, assuming you're willing to sacrifice the Conversation history, is to create a new Team and copy over the Teams. This is not a good work-around at all, but because we can't really rename a Team (changing the display name just creates confusion, because then it no longer matches the associated SharePoint site, so we prohibit this by policy), we have to "move" Channels to new Teams to effect the rename.

    Please give us a way to move channels so we can do this without losing all the conversation history. VERY IMPORTANT.

    This is important specifically because owners can rename a Team and that does not rename the corresponding SharePoint site or e-mail address. This creates confusion. As part of our internal processes and training, we try to teach owners to never rename a Team. It's currently impossible to enforce this.

    Best solution would be that renaming a Team also renames the SharePoint site, e-mail address, Office 365 Group, etc.

    Second best solution would be to give us the option to prevent owners from renaming the teams. At least that would allow us to ensure we can keep all the naming in sync.

    It should be possible to rename the underlying Plan from with Teams, maybe have it named for the Team or Channel, so changing those should change the SharePoint and Planner names, but I agree with the other users who have commented here that the Tab name should be separate from the Plan name. Tab real estate is VERY limited, so I would never want to use them all up with a Planner tab "Long Project Name Involving Lots of Words Planner" when simply "Planner" would do.

    At the very least, if this feature is implemented, please allow us an option to keep the tab name separate.

    Adding email as a left tab panel remains under review. We are working on adding several Teams and email integrations:

    - Share to Teams: Share a copy of an email and any attachments into a chat or channel directly from Outlook

    - Share to Outlook: Share a copy of a channel or chat conversation via email directly from Teams

    - Actionable Teams Activity Emails: Teams missed activity emails display the latest replies and allow you to reply directly from Outlook

    See this post for more information:

    I think this may not have been upvoted a lot yet because it's not obvious that this is missing until you try to start scheduling meetings with the Team. For people who are used to still inviting each individual from Outlook, they haven't noticed this yet. But as more and more people start working with Teams and expect to use it to schedule meetings, it's a major pain that it's effectively impossible to do this. It prevents using Teams to its fullest, forcing us to keep doing things the old way in Outlook.
