      Hi everyone, wanted to give you an update since my last update was a few months ago.

      We were able to build this solution, but unfortunately it’s not passing our validation rounds so we need to continue to work on it.

      We really appreciate your patience; I know this is a really important feature, especially for those with eyesight trouble. We’re working hard to get this solution validated and pushed out for you!

      Sincerely,
      Suphatra

    • @ makes entry bold

      The latest version of the Windows App (1.0.00.10951) makes the entire entry bold (not only the name) when including another team member using @[name]. If i delete and retry a few times I can sometimes get the name added without bolding, but it's very inconsistant (and quite annoying).

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • 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 \\.

            • 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.
              Regards
              Peter

                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.

                • 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.

                    • 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.

                      • Allow voice to text in conversations perhaps using Cortana?

                        On my iPhone my go to way of using txt, email, just about anything involving typing text, is clicking on the microphone on the keyboard and dictating. It seems like Microsoft would want to integrate Cortana into Office365 allowing voice to text everywhere. Good for me. Good for overall Accessibility. Good for you.

                        • 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

                          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).

                                  It would be handy to have the normal floating menu on top left corner of the window. Almost all the windows programs have this menu.

                                    Would be great if Microsoft could release this product on premise. So companies with local IT can use this great software.

                                      • I want to save changes but NOT send an update to everyone.

                                        I am trying to get the time corrected for my 'meeting' but it would let me save without sending to everyone. I would like to choose 'when' I send the update to everyone and not everytime I try a correction.

                                        your 'TIME' selection is really not working for me and I have to fix it everytime!

                                        AND I have NOT IDEA WHAT You would like me to title my questions or suggestions!
