    • Screen Space

      Don't restrict the width of the screen space for channel conversations, if my monitor is wide enough, adjust the display to fill up all the available space.

      • Allow hyperlinking to network drive locations

        While you are currently able to hyperlink to any https:// address, hyperlinks to \\-mapped drives does not work. having the ability to do this would be a huge help for a company that has a sophisticated network drive setup for everyone to access

        • Keep Excel formatting when pasted into Teams

          Our engineers need an easy way to paste columns and rows into a chat that keeps source formatting. Instead of creating a non-editable photo, If there could be the graphs that were there first it would help with our companies efficiency.

          • Captioning on Audio and/or Video

            As being employer to several staff who is Deaf and reply on using subtitle when watching video. I was surprised to see no subtitle/closed captioned feature when I play a video called Introduction to Microsoft Team Product Tour (2.03 minutes video) as enclosed in this attachment.
            Thank you.

              Hi Peter — I’m SO sorry! Thanks for bringing this to our attention. We are 110% committed to accessibility and we will make sure that captioning gets added to the videos.

              And Stephanie, thank you for highlighting why captioning is important otherwise. I’ll route that to the right dev team.

              Sincerely,

              • Keyboard shortcuts

                Hi, Can't you offer keyboard shortcuts to get to different tabs (activity, chat, teams, meetings, files)? This will make our life much easier.

                Thanks.

                • Multiple

                  I think a good idea to implement would be to allow multiple windows to be opened for MS Teams. For instance, to be taking notes while conferencing or watching a video in a channel. Once I click out of the channel it stops the video.

                  • Assignment tab

                    I’m a current high school student lately we’ve been having to turn in online assignments but the mobile app doesn’t have this tab. It’s hard to turn in my homework on time before midnight.

                    • Support address start with \\

                      Currently, Teams supports prefix like http. Http address become clickable. But it does not support file server access prefix like \\. Many of our customer still uses local file server. They cannot bring their high confidential data to cloud by their security policy. They expect Teams can point and make clickable the address start with \\.

                      • Please put Screen Sharing!!!

                        I want to leave Skype for Business but the one feature I use a lot is screen sharing. Why is this not included in Teams?

                        • Change how emojis render

                          Currently the rendered emojis look horrid with the non-stop gif like animation. Can we have emojis like how slack does them? Clean render, without animating them.

                          • Follow Up Ability

                            There should be an ability to make anything in Teams a follow up task (possibly link it to planner). If someone posts something, I want to be take that post and create a task with it for follow up. With this, similar to Outlook's summary page - I want a summary page in Teams, such as ALL current open tasks, new unread messages, etc.

                            • Visually differentiate between the chats

                              There should be clear visual distinctions between the different chats in the same channel. it's hard to find separate. Having borders will definitely help. Having a chat title will be helpful as well and will help in easily replying to a thread.

                              • Free version of Teams or be condemned in small adoption rate.

                                Slack and even Discord grow because they are fresh, but also free. Especially Slack is free for up to 10 people. Which is great for small talented teams. And these are the people who adopt it fast.

We have tested the option of Skype translator, however we have not been able to use it since our organization is managed with Skype Business (https://www.skype.com/en/features/skype-translator/). And it would be quite useful for us that Microsoft Teams had integrated this option of translator like the Skype Translator (it is our most viable…

                                    • Ctrl-F support (Focus on "Search")

                                      Ctrl-F should focus on the search field, like Skype.

                                      • Unable to create a team with existing Office 365 groups

                                        We have disabled the functionality for the end user to create O365 group on their own using below article
                                        https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Control-who-can-create-Office-365-Groups-4c46c8cb-17d0-44b5-9776-005fced8e618

                                        After that as a member of the Security group (as described in the above article), per end user request we have created a new O365 group and added that end user as a Owner of the new O365 group.

                                        Now EndUser can use Planner, SharePoint with the new O365 group but When the EndUser wants to create a team, he/she cannot able to use the existing O365 group (or new O365 group just created).

                                        I create a SR with Microsoft…

                                        • Shorter Links !

                                          Just make the links shorter, when pasting a link to another location on the chat.

                                          It's always too poluted, We write down a 1 line comment and the link extension has 6 lines (!)

                                          Thanks
