  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.

        • 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…

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