Improvements for Teams

 

We plan to use Teams as our main application for Front line workers

“Rota’s, Book A/L, Team Document store and have access to core/key information”

 

Feature requests:

Customise the Menu Experience: a lot of the information on the screen is not required it would be good if we could customise the view for all users. I.e make Shifts appear on the left  on Desktop Client "Not having to find it under …"

 

Change order or disable TABs Files required some teams don’t require conversations.

 

It would also be handy if we could track who had read certain communications/shared files – and if possible, leave a digital print/signature to confirm this.

 

Built-in Calendars App : We also have links to Share point calendars for Team Specific events it would be good if there were a built-in app to handle this rather than doing a URL link to SharePoint page / calendar which requires another login prompt.

Hi!

All feature requests for Teams are raised here:

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public

You can check to see if these have been raised previously and if so, vote for them!

Just looking at your requests, for example

> Changing and customising the GUI is definitely on there
> Removing the default tabs is on there but has been rejected previously

Hope that helps!

Best, Chris
Hi!
Lots of requests :)

In the desktop client there is currently no way of customizing the left menu! In the mobile app you can now recently customize the bottom menu, to include shifts for example!

The default tabs ( conversations and files) cannot be removed/renamed or moved at this time! Not in a near future or at all I’m afraid!

Files in teams aka sharepoint have tracking features such as file history and last modified for example! They are working on reading receipts at the moment:

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17042215-need-read-receipts#co...

AFAIK they are not working on integrating any sp calendar feature but they are working on an integration with the office 365 group calendar!!
