    Not to be cynical but for all we know, even the Teams team at MS doesn't fully know what is going on under the hood and this may be preventing movement on things like this.

    Our company recently had a Teams training with an MS person who was walking us through some features and at one point she couldn't find what she was wanting to show. She said "oh, looks like they've moved that again". She said things are constantly changing with Teams.

    Like all MS software, Teams is an amalgamation of tools with hooks into both old and new code. Maybe Teams relies on some old 2007 MOSS code running somewhere in the background? if so, the developers who wrote that code were long ago replaced by cheaper coders who may not be able to figure out how to make features like this one work.

    Without the ability to add SP docs to a Team, document collaboration is pretty much useless. As usual, Microsoft apparently doesn't have developers who actually know how their own tool needs to work.

    Not only should it be the very most basic feature to connect an existing sub folder to a Team channel but the same goes for sharing a OneDrive for Business folder directly to a Channel.

    People have previously posted that it's unbelievable that folders can't be shared to a Team but I believe it. I've come to expect it even.

    I don't see any problems at all with showing confidential tasks in Planner that involve high level executive planning and discussions and making them available for everyone in the company to see.

    Project: deal with inefficiencies in Accounting Dept.

    Task #1: Make sure that Susan doesn't have access to MS Teams.
    Task #2: Fire Susan
    Task #3: Hire someone to replace Susan
    Task #4: Deal with fallout from friends of Susan having access to this Teams channel.

    Just brilliant! 🙄

    This is absolutely essential given that it's not immediately obvious to users how to get notifications. There is really no point to MS Teams if people don't know that there is something new posted to a channel that they need to know.

    Right now, we literally have to email Team members to let them know about a new post.

    This feature is not available at this time. You can get the email address for the team which allows you to email the Teams app. But this is completely different than emailing every member of a team from within the Teams app.

    Many of our users don't have their notifications turned on or only partially turned on, so being able to email members of a team to let them know something important was posted, seems like a no-brainer.

    But then, this is Microsoft we're talking about...

    I've browsed through the various UserVoice discussions on the stupidity of the activity feed and have yet to find someone who thinks it's a useful "feature". If all the votes to dump the activity feed were tallied in the multiple discussions about this issue were merged, it would be a huge number.

    However, I doubt that Microsoft cares about something like this when they can't even get OneDrive for Business to work properly with Teams and Sharepoint.

    Probably the code used to generate the activity feed was based on DOS so no one at MS knows how to recode it to turn it off ;-)

    The garbage activity feed logging is a typical Microsoft app design approach. They deploy before they find out if a "feature" is wanted or useful. We've seen this over the years with things like the "enhancements" to Office, Sharepoint, and Windows.

    I personally have come to EXPECT this kind of bad app design out of MS. They add superfluous stuff like this because they can. No one at MS seems to ever ask if it's a good idea.
