    partially done  ·  Warren responded

    The zoom feature has released to the public ring. Using CRTL + or CTRL – zoom in and out on a Windows PC.

    I need to correct the information I provided last month about MAC. It appears the MAC version is still in testing and hasn’t yet gone out to the public. It is “In Testing” but will be coming to the public soon!

    The item tracking this specific update can be found at: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/admin/v3/suggestions/16933183/activity

    There now is a UI element that tells you your current zoom level and a Setting within the UI to preset your zoom preference.

    Since the zoom feature could very well cover the vast majority of user needs, based on the majority of comments and feedback, I will flag this item as Partially Done.

    Thank you for all the feedback and support!
    -Warren

  3. Add the ability to have multiple windows open for chats, teams and channels?

    It's very hard to keep track of multiple chats and teams all in one window - and time-consuming to keep navigating between them. It would be really useful to have multiple windows available that we can keep open for chats, teams and channels.

  4. **actual** markdown support

    The current markdown implementation is simply bad as it's not actual markdown. Instead it's some kind of in-line format guesser that changes what you type on enter.


    • it doesn't work in the client

    • it doesn't apply to messages submitted via webhook integrations

    • it doesn't work on cut-n-pasted text

    • it's not complete (tons of markdown syntax missing)

    • it doesn't allow simple shortcuts via "/extension" (looking at you, /giphy)

    in-line reformatting is slow and often unpredictable in the way it responds as you type, making for a poor experience, especially as you attempt to reformat a message you started typing.

    Remember Teams…

  5. Option to change global font size in Teams & apply settings to incoming messages like you can in Lync

    Very important for visually impaired individuals. Lync has an option that allows you to specify the global font settings and then click a box that "applies settings to incoming messages."

    This means that someone like myself, who is visually impaired, can then set the global font to say 16. Then all messages I type will be at size 16 and more importantly, all the messages I get back from people are going to be size 16 as well.

    This option also allows people who Don't want to see messages in size 16 -don't have to. They can specify their own…

  6. Allow the addition of Alt Text for images

    The addition of Alt Text is a basic accessibility consideration. Currently we can't do this is Teams (you can do it easily in Yammer).

    Currently we are using the work around of adding descriptive text when posting an image.

  8. Change 'Accept Call' button color to green to match other familiar UI elements

    When I receive an incoming call request, if I'm on autopilot sometimes my inclination is to click on the red 'decline call' button because that button has a different color than the other buttons--this makes it stand out as an option.

    If you changed the color of the 'accept call' button to a medium green, this would make both 'accept' and 'decline' stand out from the rest of the interface and also help facilitate usability for those who are partially blind.

    Doing this would align the most important call interaction buttons to the same color scheme that iOS/Android use and…

  10. Screen Sharing - add an "actual size" button to show the presenter's desktop resolution

    It is difficult for viewers with poor vision to see desktops that are shared. HDMeeting and other videoconferencing apps have a UI element to show the 'actual size' of the display resolution.

    Users can use the zoom button to enhance the Teams call controls, but not the shared screen.

  12. Allow live captions to work during screen sharing

    I was part of a "Accessibility in Teams and Immersive Reader for All" live training and the live captions did not work. The moderator told me it was because the person was going to be screen sharing.
    I tried it later myself and they were right, it doesn't work, at least from the hosts side. I didn't have anyone else on with me.
    They still could have had the captions on when they weren't screen sharing...
    I have multiple Deaf and Hard of Hearing coworkers as well as D/HH students who could benefit from this.

  14. Request Control button - move, add confirmation, or allow undo

    I've got tremors, and the Request Control button is way too easy to hit when I want to look at the chat or participants list

    Please move the button, add a confirmation, or allow the request to be withdrawn.

  15. Multiple Windows open @ once

    It would be nice to be able to open multiple windows of Teams at once. For example: a chat window, a Teams window, a planner window all at the same time.

  16. Pop out video for DHH student's ASL Interpreter

    Our deaf and hard of hearing students can not see their interpreter well once the teacher uses screen share/presents because the video of the interpreter shrinks too small. Please have an option to select and pop out a participant. This is the sole reason our district is allowing the DHH team to use Zoom instead. However we have DHH students in non-DHH classes with hearing students and that teacher is required to use Teams for synchronous learning. Please add this accessibility for our DHH students so they can join ALL classrooms.

  18. Please make Teams multi-window

    From the company which invented Windows... a single-window productivity application. Really?
    As multi-tasking is the accepted way of operating now, why does it need to take so long for me to switch from one task in Teams to another and back again? Please fix.

    we have this!  ·  Warren responded

    You can create add a hyperlink to any text, which will allow you to avoid massive links being copied into the chat/channels.
    Expand the compose box by clicking the icon “A” with a pencil just below your compose line. Once in the expanded view you can create a link by clicking the icon that looks like a chain at the top of the compose box.

    You can also highlight your text and use this function to change your selected text into a hyperlink. Once the hyperlink dialog opens update the link location and modify your text if you so desire.

  20. User Setting to define how many video windows to display.

    Visually impaired staff have found the move to a 3 x 3 grid problematic as they find it harder to see the images. Could there be a user defined setting which enables people to determine whether they wish to display 2x2, 3x3 grid plus whatever it ends up moving to.
