Release notes for Microsoft Teams

Release notes for Microsoft Teams

December 12, 2017

Calls in Teams are here!

Teams is supporting voice calls in a big way. With the right license (read on), here's what you'll be able to do:

  • Make calls to people outside of Teams or Skype for Business

  • See dedicated spaces for your contacts, call history, and voicemail

  • Personalize your voicemail greeting

  • Transfer calls (to people inside and outside of Teams)

  • Use Enhanced 911 (E911) in Teams to get location-based emergency calling

Look for the new Calls app on the left side of Teams. You need the Enterprise Voice license to see it. If you don’t see the app, talk to your IT admin about getting a license.

Here are a couple of other things you’ll get with the Enterprise Voice license:

Mask calller ID

There’s a new setting that lets you hide your phone number any time you make a call to someone outside of Teams. Talk to your IT admin to set it up.

TTY devices

You’ll now be able to speak to people in Teams using a USB-connected phone and a TTY device. Turn on TTY support in Settings. Click your profile picture, then Settings > Calls. When you get a call, plug a headset into your TTY device and you're good to go.

Finally, something for everyone, no matter what license you have:

Calls to and from Skype for Business

Missing your friends on Skype for Business? Give them a call from Teams. You'll be able to receive calls from anyone on Skype for Business, too.

Read more on our blog.

Feature

Support for conditional access on Macs: Teams now supports device-based conditional access. This means your IT admin can make sure only devices that comply with your company's security policy can have access to Teams, ultimately making your information more secure. This new feature will apply to any Intune-managed Mac. For more info, go to https://aka.ms/macoscompliancepolicy or talk to your IT admin.

Coming soon

Find new tabs faster: Whenever someone adds a new tab at the top of a channel you belong to, you'll see a New badge over the tab name. It'll disappear once you click into the tab or after the tab has been up and running for a week.

Control who can post in General: We have a new setting that allows team owners to manage who can post in the team's General channel. Now, team owners can limit posting in the General channel to team owners only. Another option is to leave posting in the General channel open to all team members, but have a banner show up whenever someone starts authoring a new post to remind them that their message will be seen by a whole lot of people. The banner will appear as the author composes their message, and it will reflect the actual number of people in your team. Head to your team settings (click More options More options button next to the team name, then select Manage team) to check it out.

New max team size: This one goes out to all the larger organizations—you can now add up to 2500 members per team!

New keyboard shortcuts for rearranging teams: We built some new shortcuts that let you reorder your teams in the desktop app! If you're on a PC, select and move a team up or down by pressing Ctrl+Shift+Up and Ctrl+Shift+Down, respectively. Anyone working on a Mac can perform the same actions using Cmd+Shift+Up and Cmd+Shift+Down.

To see a full list of every keyboard shortcut supported in Teams, type Alt+/ (PC) or Option+/ (Mac).

Now available for Microsoft Teams in O365 for Education

Disable private chats:  If private chats are becoming a distraction at your school, IT admins can now disable the feature for students. With chats disabled, students can focus their attention on classroom discussions in channels. They'll still be able to contact their teachers directly by @mentioning them in a channel.

Got feedback? Click the light bulb at the bottom of Teams, and you'll be taken to our user feedback page.

Wiki tabs now support tables: You can now add tables to a Wiki tab. Each table supports all the same formatting options that are available throughout Wiki. You'll be able to drag and drop lines to resize column width, and you can add or remove new columns and rows quickly from your toolbar.

Leave a group chat: Big news, everyone: you can now remove yourself from group chats! Just click More options More options button next to the chat and select Leave. You'll still have access to chat history up until you left.

Brand new Settings: We've retooled our Settings menu to make it easier for you to manage your preferences. Now, you'll be able to change your app theme, language, and notifications settings in one place. Click your profile picture and select Settings to check it out.

Got feedback? Click the light bulb at the bottom of Teams, and you'll be taken to our user feedback page.

Support for editing Office docs: Now, you have the option of editing Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents right inside Teams without having to switch to the native app. Just click Edit at the top right corner of your file viewer and select Edit in Teams.

Naming group chats just got better: You now have the ability to name a group chat before you send the first message. Click the expand icon that appears when you create a new chat, and you'll be able to add a name. This will create a whole new group chat even if you've already got an existing chat going with the same participants, which makes it possible to start a new group chat about a different topic even if you're already in a chat with the same people.

Now Available for Microsoft Teams in O365 for Education

New Class and Staff Notebook settings: Customizing Class or Staff Notebooks just got easier—educators can now edit notebook settings without leaving Microsoft Teams.

Full-screen view for Class and Staff Notebooks: The new full-screen view for Class and Staff Notebooks lets educators explore the entire Notebook structure all at once.

Support for editing Class and Staff Notebooks in a browser: We now have an Edit in browser feature that allows educators to make updates without exiting their Class or Staff Notebook.

Support for web links in Assignments: Teachers can now attach important web links to the “reference material” component of assignments just like you can share a link to a Word, Excel, or PowerPoint document.

Got feedback? Click the light bulb at the bottom of Teams, and you'll be taken to our user feedback page.

Get notifications for connector messages: Want to be among the first to find out when a connector posts something new to a channel? You can do that. Now, when you follow a channel, you'll get notified about new posts from connectors as well as new posts from people and bots! To do that, click More options More options button next to a channel name then select Follow this channel.

Remove someone from a meeting: You're now able to remove someone from a meeting, whether they've joined from their computer or dialed in from a phone. To remove someone, click More options More options button next to their name in the meeting roster then select Remove. You don't need to be the meeting organizer to be able to remove someone, and this feature is available for private meetings and meetings in channels.

Share an application, not your whole screen: If you're in a meeting and want to share your screen, you'll be able to select a specific window or app to share with all the meeting participants rather than having to share your entire desktop. This will help you protect sensitive information that may be visible on your desktop. FYI, this feature isn't available on Windows 7 yet. But don't worry, it's coming soon.

View your daily meetings: You can now view your Outlook work calendar in Teams using the same daily calendar view you're used to. Open up the Meetings app, and you'll get a clear picture of all your meetings and your free time for the day. Clicking the arrows below your search bar will let you cycle through different days in the current week. To switch between viewing your meetings as a list or in a daily calendar, click the toggle button below your search bar.

Mark as unread: Starting now, you can mark a message in a channel or chat as unread. That way, when you return to the channel or chat, you'll see your unread message right below the Last read line. This also means your channel or chat name will stay bold so you'll remember you've got unread messages there. To mark something as unread, click More options More options button next to the message and select Mark as unread.

In preview...

Audio conferencing is here: If you're licensed for Skype for Business PSTN Conferencing Service, you'll be able to preview this feature, which will include a dial-in phone number and conference ID in all your Teams meeting invites. That means you'll be able to dial in to meetings in Teams from any phone, or invite anyone else to join the Teams meeting by dialing their phone number.

Got feedback? Click the light bulb at the bottom of Teams, and you'll be taken to our user feedback page.

Guest access has arrived: If you're working in Teams, you now have the ability to extend access to people outside your organization! Starting now, you can do the following:

  • Collaborate with people outside your organization. Guests can post messages in channels, chat one-on-one or in groups with other team members, share and view files, attend and schedule team meetings, and use connected apps and services (like OneNote) inside Teams!

  • Work with your IT admins to fine-tune permissions for guests in Teams, including restricting specific capabilities.

  • Manage settings related to guest access (like allowing guests to create new channels) for any team you own.

Teams will also clearly indicate which teammates have joined as guests or do not belong to your organization, so that your risk of leaking protected or sensitive information is minimized.

FYI: Stay tuned for guest access support on mobile! It should be available within the next few days. However, mobile will not support workplace-joined machines just yet. (Don't worry, it's coming soon.)

Got feedback? Click the light bulb at the bottom of Teams, and you'll be taken to our user feedback page.

The following feature has been added for this release of Microsoft Teams.

Fun with Outlook: It's here! Teams will now integrate with Outlook in new and interesting ways thanks to the Outlook add-in. When you head to your Outlook calendar, you'll see a button labeled New Teams Meeting. Click it, and you'll be able to schedule a Teams meeting from Outlook. You'll also have the ability to update, cancel, or forward Teams meetings from Outlook. All your meetings in Teams will show up in your Outlook calendar (and vice versa), and you'll be able to join your meeting from either app.

We love feedback! Click the light bulb at the bottom of your screen to get in touch.

The following features have been added for this release of Microsoft Teams.

Meetings have gone mobile: Big news, everyone! You'll be able to join private meetings, channel meetings, and meetings that are part of a recurring series—all from your mobile app. You'll even be able to join a Teams meeting from your Outlook calendar. If you ever want to check up on some meeting details, you'll also be able to view up-to-date information from the Meetings tab in your mobile device. FYI, this feature is only available for iOS and Android users. But don't worry, support for Windows Phone is coming soon.

Expand a tab to full screen: Now, when you're working in a tab, you'll be able to enter full screen mode.

Got feedback? Let us know! Click the light bulb at the bottom corner of the app to head to our user feedback page.

The following features have been added for this release of Microsoft Teams.

View meeting content while multitasking: Now, you can keep an eye on any content being presented even if you've clicked away from your meeting. That means you can check your messages or pop into another channel then click back whenever you like—without losing any context!

Perform actions on multiple files: Now, you can select multiple files at a time and right-click to perform bulk actions like copy, move, or delete.

T-Bot just got smarter: Good news, everyone! In addition to speaking English and French, T-Bot can now converse in German and Spanish as well.

Coming soon...

New cloud storage options: Check your Files in the next day or two! You'll find that you can collaborate on documents across a variety of cloud storage providers, like Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, and ShareFile! This means you'll be able to share more files in conversations and map folders from different third party file libraries to your channels in Microsoft Teams.

Got feedback? Click the light bulb at the bottom of Teams, and you'll be taken to our user feedback page.

The following features have been added for this release of Microsoft Teams.

Disable calling: If calling isn't your thing, your IT admin can turn off calling in Teams for your entire organization. While calling is disabled, all call buttons will be removed from your conversations.

New actionable cards for connectors: Now, when you add a connector for your favorite services like Trello, VSTS, and GitHub, they'll be able to send actionable cards into a channel. That way, you can do things like set due dates, add comments, mark things as 'Complete', and more!

Bug fix for desktop app + Mac users: Now, when you close a notification, it won't automatically open up Teams in the foreground of your screen.

Got feedback? Click the light bulb at the bottom of Teams, and you'll be taken to our user feedback page.

The following features have been added for this release of Microsoft Teams.

Invite people to Teams via chat: When you're in a group chat that includes people who aren't on Teams yet, sending them a message will automatically notify them via email that they've got a message waiting for them in Teams. That email will also include an invitation to sign up for Teams and join the party.

Coming soon...

Manage app behavior on startup: In the next few days, go to your app Settings (click your profile picture) and select Application. You'll find that you have three new settings around launching and closing Microsoft Teams. Now, you can turn on the following behaviors:

  • Make Microsoft Teams launch automatically when you start your machine.

  • Opt to launch Teams automatically, but have it run quietly in the background.

  • Enable Teams to keep running even when you close your window.

Unless you specify otherwise, Teams will start up in the foreground of your machine by default.

Got feedback? Drop us a line! Click the light bulb at the bottom of Teams, and you'll be taken to our user feedback page.

The following features have been added for this release of Microsoft Teams.

New PowerApps tab: Now, you can add Microsoft PowerApps as a tab! PowerApps are "code-free" apps that you can build with a WYSIWYG editor from PowerApps.com. They're great for internal use within your team, since you can build a quick app to perform a specific task or to handle highly specialized data. To get started building your own app, go to https://web.powerapps.com. Once you've built your app, you'll be able to add it as a new tab in a channel just like you'd add any other tab.

Improved editing for Wiki: Editing your Wiki pages just got a lot easier! Now, when you want to edit a section, you can click into the section and start typing. Additionally, your changes will be saved automatically once you click out of the section, so you won't have to worry about selecting 'Edit' and 'Save' while you write. We hope you like it!

Got something to say? We'd love to hear it! Click the feedback light bulb at the bottom of the app and you'll be directed straight to our user feedback page.

The following feature has been added for this release of Microsoft Teams.

Trello tab: This new tab lets your team work more collaboratively and get more done. You'll be able to pin your Trello boards so you can manage your lists and cards right from Microsoft Teams. This gives you some more flexibility when it comes to staying organized and prioritizing your projects. To add a Trello tab, click the + next to your existing tabs at the top of a channel.

Got something to say? We'd love to hear it! Click the feedback light bulb at the bottom of the app and you'll be directed straight to our user feedback page.

The following features have been added or enhanced for this release of Microsoft Teams.

Wiki supports Markdown: Now you can use Markdown in Wiki. Use the same Markdown syntax that applies to chats and messaging to format Wiki sections on the fly. If Markdown isn't your thing, you'll still be able access all the same formatting options from your toolbar.

Link to a channel or team: Now, you can grab a shareable link to a channel or team just by clicking the more icon next to the channel or team name. Copy and paste the link in a message or email to give someone a quick and easy entry point to key conversations, files, and contacts.

A better viewing experience: We made some performance improvements to your Files view in channels. Now, when you're navigating to your Files, the view will load even faster.

New refresh button: We added a refresh button at the top corner of the Files tab in each channel. You now have an easy way to check for new files or any other changes that might have happened since you last looked.

New upload indicator: Now, when you upload a file to the Files view or OneDrive in a channel, you'll see an indicator letting you know your upload is in progress. From there, you can track your progress or cancel uploads for multiple files at a time.

Got something to say? We'd love to hear it! Click the feedback light bulb at the bottom of the app and you'll be directed straight to our user feedback page.

The following features have been added or enhanced for this release of Microsoft Teams.

Improved file load time: When you upload a file to a channel or chat, it'll be quicker than ever.

Refresh button in Files view: We added a refresh button at the top right corner of the app so whenever you're in the files view, you can click there to check for new files or other changes.

Got something to say? We'd love to hear it! Click the feedback light bulb at the bottom of the app and you'll be directed straight to our user feedback page.

The following features have been added or enhanced for this release of Microsoft Teams.

More team owners: We've increased the maximum number of team owners from 10 to 100.

Recover deleted teams: Now, whenever you delete a team, you'll have the option of recovering it for up to 30 days. That means team owners or IT admins will be able to bring back your entire team (including all team members, team content, tabs, and chat history) even after they've been deleted. For more detailed instructions, click here.

Improved group chat icons: From now on, you'll see a new icon whenever you're in a group chat. It'll show you the profile pictures of the first three people in a group chat if you're going in alphabetical order. (We figured it's more fun to look at.)

Got something to say? We'd love to hear it! Click the feedback light bulb at the bottom of the app and you'll be directed straight to our user feedback page.

Office 365 Education now includes Microsoft Teams: This means that Microsoft Teams is free for all faculty, staff, and students through Office 365 Education.

  • Faculty, teachers, students, and administrators have a central communication hub where they can hold focused discussions with different groups of people.

  • Students can easily collaborate on projects they created using Office 365 apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and more. Faculty and teachers can post announcements, host discussion groups, or even use connectors and bots to poll their students or send updates and reminders.

  • Everyone can share content and host meetings (or study sessions) in their main communication center. Administrators and faculty will be able to take advantage of the enterprise-grade security and compliance that are baked into the Office 365 Education suite.

  • IT Admin will be able to control access to Microsoft Teams at the individual level as well as manage what kind of content can be shared within teams and channels.

Microsoft Teams is available as part of the Office 365 Education suite including Education, Education Plus, Education E5, and existing Education E3 suites. Microsoft Teams will not be turned on by default, so it needs to be turned on by your IT admin or sysadmin.

The following features have been added or enhanced for this release of Microsoft Teams.

New compose box

You'll find that your expanded compose box still offers all the same formatting options, but you’ve got a lot more space to play around with creating custom memes and stickers, or searching for popular or trending GIFs. We improved the experience behind a lot of the actions surrounding composing and editing messages. Now, you have separate icons for the following actions:

  • Adding an emoji to a message

  • Sending a GIF

  • Creating and sending a custom meme or sticker

  • Attaching a file

  • Scheduling a meeting

Meetings

Clicking the meetings icon below your compose box will take you straight to our meeting form, where you can immediately schedule a meeting with whoever you're talking to in a channel or chat.

Schedule meetings

Schedule a private meeting: Schedule a private meeting with anyone in your organization! They'll be able to join by clicking "Meetings" on the left side of the app.

Scheduling assistant: Our new scheduling assistant will let you know when all your invitees are free to meet. The scheduling assistant also provides a calendar view of the coming week that will show you when all your meeting attendees are busy or unavailable.

Bots

Bots tab in your team page: The Bots tab gives you a list of all the bots that have been added to that team. It's also the place to go if you want to discover new bots or get started creating a custom bot or tab.

Bot gallery: The bot gallery will show you a list of all the bots that are currently available in Microsoft Teams. Alongside the Bots tab, the bot gallery is also the place to go when you want to find out which bots have already been added to one of your teams.

Discover bots via search: To see a list of all available bots, click in the search bar at the top of the app and then select "Discover bots". Click a bot to start a one-on-one chat or click "Add" to add it to a team.

Add a bot using an @mention: To add a bot to a channel, type '@' in your compose box, then select "Add a bot".

Custom bots: Now, you can quickly and easily integrate an external service with one of your teams by adding a custom bot. Established and aspiring developers can sideload a bot or tab or even create a custom bot using a call back URL. Go to the new Bots tab and click the links at the bottom right to get started.

Public teams

With public teams, anyone can search for, view, and join your team. This means that when anyone from your organization clicks through "Add a team", they'll see a collection of public teams that they can browse and join. If you want to create a new public team, you'll be able to choose 'public' or 'private' settings for your team privacy as you go through the steps of creating a new team.

Wiki tab

The Wiki tab is a great place for you to draft or edit documents and communicate in real time. It's a full-fledged text editor that lets you @mention teammates right on the page, leave comments when you're editing someone else's work, or respond to feedback.

Files tab

The Files tab has a new look and feel. There's an action bar that includes an option to open the SharePoint site for your team. Additionally, you can get links to folders so you can easily share files within Teams.

More tabs

We've added new options to the tab gallery so you can connect all your favorite external services. Now, you can add a tab to integrate services such as Zendesk or Asana. Go to the desktop app to see what's available.

Feeds

We've redesigned your Activity feed so it's more transparent and gives you more control over what you see. Click the Activity icon on the left side of the app; you'll be taken right to your feed. You'll be able to filter your feed by notification type (if you just want to check your mentions, replies, likes, or news from channels you follow). You also have the option of opening "Team activity" (which will show you all the latest news from your favorite channels). "My activity" will give you a list of all the actions you've performed recently in Microsoft Teams.

Email integration with Microsoft Teams

You can now post a forwarded email to a channel in Microsoft Teams, thanks to channel email addresses. Click the "Get email address" option in your channel menu to start sending emails to a channel. Once an email is forwarded, you can have a conversation about it directly in the channel. Any comments or messages that are posted in a channel about an email will only be visible from Microsoft Teams. You'll also have the option of restricting who can send emails to a channel.

Microsoft Teams will show up in apps view

If you've got the appropriate license, Microsoft Teams will now show up (along with all your other Office 365 web apps) in your apps view. From your desktop, press the Windows key.

T-Bot speaks French

Pour nos utilisateurs francophones, nous sommes heureux d'annoncer que le contenu de T-bot et de l'aide prend désormais en charge le français. Translation: For our French speaking users, we are happy to announce that T-bot and Help content now supports French.

Improvements in your Files tab: The Files tab has a new look and feel! Now, there's an action bar that includes an option to open the SharePoint site for your team. Additionally, you can get links to folders so you can easily share files within Teams.

Accessibility improvements: We've improved accessibility across Microsoft Teams. Please don't hesitate to get in touch should you have concerns or comments.

Microsoft wants to provide the best possible experience for all our customers. If you have a disability or questions related to accessibility, please contact the Microsoft Disability Answer Desk for technical assistance. The Disability Answer Desk support team is trained in using many popular assistive technologies and can offer assistance in English, Spanish, French, and American Sign Language. Please go to the Microsoft Disability Answer Desk site to find out the contact details for your region.

If you are a government, commercial, or enterprise user, please contact the enterprise Disability Answer Desk.

Got something to say? We'd love to hear it! Click the feedback light bulb at the bottom of the app and you'll be directed straight to our user feedback page.

The following features have been added or enhanced for this release of Microsoft Teams.

Auto favorite five channels: Whenever you favorite a new team, its top five most-favorited channels will be automatically added to your favorites. This makes it easier to get up and running in a new team, and it also tells you where all the action is in that team's channels. If you start following a team that contains fewer than five channels, we'll auto-favorite new channels as they're created.

Transfer a call: Click the more icon in your call window, then start typing the name of the call recipient into the transfer dialog. Once you've selected your recipient, click Transfer.

Put a call on hold: Click the more icon while you're on a call or in a meeting and you'll have the option of putting your call on hold. When you do that, everyone else in the call will get a notification that they've been put on hold, and they won't be able to hear or see you for the duration. If you were in the middle of sharing your screen, that content will no longer be visible while your call is on hold, either. When you're ready to return to your call, click Rejoin or Resume.

Increased team size: Now, you can create teams that hold up to 999 people.

Status stays "Available" longer: Now, if your status is set to Available, it'll stay that way even when Microsoft Teams is running in the background.

Got something to say? We'd love to hear it! Click the feedback light bulb at the bottom of the app and you'll be directed straight to our user feedback page.

The following features have been added or enhanced for this release of Microsoft Teams.

Desktop and Web

Markdown: Follow these links for more information:

Settings: We've completely redesigned our Settings menu to include your saved messages, profile picture, and status. Going forward, if you want to find a saved message, update your avatar, or set your status as 'Away', click your profile picture in the bottom left corner of the app. Everything that used to live in your Settings menu will still be there.

Manage app behavior at startup: From your profile picture, click Application to manage app behavior when you start up your machine or close Microsoft Teams. There's now a setting that will enable you to launch Microsoft Teams automatically whenever you start your machine. If you want, you can also opt to have Microsoft Teams open automatically but run in the background. Finally, you can decide whether you want the app to keep running even if you close your window.

Spell check: When you make a spelling error, Microsoft Teams will underline it in red. If you right-click the error, you'll see a menu with suggested corrections--you'll be able to select the word you want from that menu and paste it into your text.

IT Admin

Improved Security and Compliance for Microsoft Teams: Archive, audit logging, eDiscovery, content searches, and legal hold functionality is now available in the Office 365 Security and Compliance Center for Microsoft Teams data. Contact your Office 365 global admin to learn more.
