  1. Teams - Multiple Panes / Windows

    Allow user to have multiple active panes or windows. Working with various parts of teams (Chat, Tabs, Meetings, Files, Conversations) sometimes require having multiple views open and productivity is lost by switching for every individual action.

    Provide an option to pop out, or retain active panels will improve productivity and use of Teams.

  3. Planner Board View - Sort/Filter Buckets by Due Date/Date Range

    Planner Board View by Bucket needs a Sort by Due Date or date range filter - would be good to be able to sort all Buckets within a Plan by due date/date range. We are an agile environment and need to quickly review particular Bucket tasks based on dates, whilst you can do this in Charts view, it is not available in Board Bucket View. It would give our team a quick view on pinch points blocking related pieces of work

  4. Teams, more than 4 video in a meetings

    When me and my colleagues (more than 5) have a meetings on Teams. The window shows only 4 video streams from 4 contacts, but not the rest of the members.
    Is it possible to activate more than 4? Is it going to be included in an upcoming version of Teams
    Thank you.

  5. Consolidated Admin Interface To Control Office 365 Connectors/Apps Across Office 365

    Within Yammer, Outlook and MS Teams we have a similar concept of connectors/apps. Each of these has different ways of controlling what connectors/apps are available to users. We would like to see a consolidated Admin interface to control which connectors/apps are enabled or disabled as well as whether or not each of these connectors/apps allows actionable activities ie. allow the Twitter connector/app but disable the like and comment buttons via the consolidated Admin interface.

  6. Office 365 Groups Content Type hub connection

    There is the possibility to use content types in group libraries but it would be best if it could consume content type from the content type hub

  7. Microsoft teams and OneNote Notebook integration

    Even though on https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Frequently-asked-questions-about-Microsoft-Teams-%E2%80%93-Admin-Help-05cbe533-2181-4e95-a4b0-52cd7695fafc it states you can keep using your existing OneNote when you add Teams functionality to an existing Office 365 Group this is a bit misleading.

    It in essence creates a new section per team channel in the notebook but all the content you previously created in the Notebook in the Office 365 Group is not visible in the 'Notes' tab in Microsoft Teams and as such is not usabel/accessible from the Teams client.

    Very annoying and not quite sure why this was an accepted design choice by MS.

  8. Remove meeting room from the location field if the room declines the meeting

    If a user creates a meeting and invites a room that is not available (or they are not authorised to book) then the meeting room stays in the location field. As attendees see the declined room they believe that is where the meeting is happening and report that the meeting room has been double-booked. The room has not been double booked, it's just not clear to the attendees that the room declined the invite.

  10. Increase Sharepoint storage allowance

    The fact that each person in the company has 1tb of personal onedrive space is awesome! It becomes a little less awesome when they start to move or copy files into a 365 group which uses up sharepoint storage which is a bit more of a premium.
    Since OneDrive and sharepoint are becoming closer siblings, the data allowance should follow suite. Even a 100gb per user contribution to the Sharepoint storage would be a great improvement.

  11. Free/busy permission on shared calendars for Mac.

    Outlook for Mac needs edit permissions to view shared (and resource) calendars. It should be possible to share calendar with Mac users with only "view free/busy" rights. Like it is with PC version of Outlook.

  17. SharePoint similar item level properties and permissions

    Ability to migrate documents with last modified user,date and permissions form SharePoint is important as most of the end users are now got used to rich document management features of SharePoint.

  18. Rename SharePoint Tenant Site or be able to use company sub-domain using CName

    When creating a Office 365 account, we got a generated tenant name (which includes my first name) which ofc is not what the end-users would expect to use on daily basis.

    So two solutions,
    1) Rename the Tenant name

    2) Use Company top-domain and create a subdomain with a CName pointer to the SharePoint site,
    http://office.xxxx.com => http://danielxxxxxx.Sharepoint.com

    None of which are working today.

  19. Groups and SharePoint File sections should be more consistent.

    Some of these suggestions are already out there. I think we need to see more consistency between the file sections O365 Groups and SharePoint - this is a major piece when it comes to moving or using a Group over a SharePoint site. A few items worth noting:


    1. File types - we can allow certain files (i.e. .JAR) to be uploaded into SharePoint, but we can't allow that for O365 Groups. Users who want to migrate their libraries over will have to rename or compress (ZIP) these as a work around. Quite a hassle for teams who have stored these…

  20. Please, please, please enable Office 365 Groups to be shared with external users. Otherwise I fear Google groups would be preferred in Edu!
