  2. Make it more clear when chatting in a group change vs. private chat

    Please make it more clear you are in a group chat. There have been several times a user will say something in group chat and think they are in a private chat. A different color background and/or color font and/or icon to indicate a group chat.

  3. 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.

    we have this!  ·  Warren responded

    Teams does have some shortcuts you may use.

    To see the shortcut list you can click on your user icon within Teams.
    From the drop down list go to Keyboard Shortcuts.
    A second window will open showing you the available shortcuts that Teams has to offer at this time.

    Keep posting feedback.

  5. Enable bookmarks in PDF tab, bookmarks created in Adobe Reader etc. do not seem to show in teams PDF view tab

    When sharing PDF files as on-screen documents in Teams (using the PDF viewer tab), bookmarks cannot be selected even though they are in the selected file. Reference documents such as policies benefit significantly from bookmark navigation so it is bizarre it is absent.

  6. Improve Microsoft Teams accessibility

    Microsoft Teams is not as accessible for blind persons, as it is necessary for them to work with it independently. When using a screenreader, it is very difficult for a blind user to get to the material (s)he wishes to find. This is the result of a test in the downloaded app version, in Google Chrome and Internet Explorer: In all cases, it is very difficult to navigate well and e.g. get all documents (and screenreading softrware Virtual Jaws doesn’t improve the situation). It is important to explore how to improve this, as Microsoft Teams is getting more and more…

  7. searching refined

    make it so that the ability to search within teams is a little better. I do not see a search or any type of local search within a group. If I go to a group, I should be able to search within the group, no matter how many pages and tabs there are, to be able to find things within tabs in groups.

  12. Dragon Naturally Speaking

    Better integration with Dragon Naturally Speaking software. Since my company upgraded from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams I have lost the ability to be directly into Teams using the voice-to-text software Dragon Naturally Speaking, and rather it requires a cumbersome pop-up box. Skype for Business did not have this problem and worked just the same as Word, Excel, Outlook, Chrome, etc. Teams has lost its ability

  15. Chat Notifications

    Currently, the only types of chat notifications available are email, banner or off. Can you fix it to where the chat will show the bubble if you receive a message, without the banner coming out. I don't want to have to read the banner every time someone IMs me, but I'd like to know I have an unread chat, by some kind of flashing notification, similar to what Skype for Business uses.

  16. Please make the answer call icon on the incoming call popup Green! the popup is blue, the icon is blue. its confusing

    The popup is blue, the answer call icon is blue, it's confusing. The "ignore call" icon is red and stands out. Users inadvertently click on the wrong icon. frequently. Making the "answer call" icon green would cause it to stand out. (image attached)

  17. searching

    The ability to search any types of WIKI within teams. if there is just clear text, please provide a type of search for that within groups. I can search files and other items just fine, but not clear text within groups, or Wiki's. This makes it very hard to find material.

  20. Add ":eyes:" emoji to reactions bar

    Reactions bar's emoji is useful.
    But, One of the reactions we wanna use most is ": eyes:" emoji.

    When we get a notification, We often react to “I'm watching now" by using eyes emoji reaction on Slack.
    If we can do it on Teams, feel super cool !

    So We want to add ":eyes:" emoji to reactions bar.
