  1. Test Microphone/Speakers from inside the application.

    It would be nice to be able to test the Microphone and Speakers, to make sure everything is working.

  2. Transcribe audio messages sent from Teams mobile app

  3. Add "In Review" or "On Hold" to Progress status of a Task

    To align with Agile methodologies, which have four status options for "user stories"/tasks, add a fourth option in the Progress drop down menu on each Task. The fourth option could be customizable or could be fixed to either "In Review" or "On Hold." Either gets a similar point across.

    The four options in Agile could be:
    to-do
    doing
    in review
    completed

  4. Put a very thin gray border around the main window frame

    Put a very thin gray border around the main window frame when running Dark Theme so I can find the bottom corners on top of other "dark mode" things, like Windows Desktop (black), Notepad++ (dark theme), etc.

  5. Enter button should return!!!

    Its so hard to write something formal, especially to a manager or to another team. Its very irritating when you hit return expecting a return but rather actually send the message, sometimes incomplete...

  6. High Contrast

    For vision impaired uses that use custom High Contrast Theming, the Teams apps does not correctly map to the colors. For example, left list uses the Disabled vs Selected colors. Microsoft should be fully committed to one standard for Theming; especially for High Contrast Theme. It is critical for the vision impaired.

    Warren responded

    I apologize for being fairly ignorant on this topic. The color scheme setting can be found by clicking your portrait icon within Teams at the upper right. Under the General Settings you can select, Default color theme, Dark, or High Contrast. This follows the Windows OS high contrast theme and my understanding is also following the global standards.

    If you are having issues could you let me know what exactly is happening or specifics you feel need to change? If you could tell me both and maybe even email me screen shots to TeamsML@microsoft.com I can work to see what I can do for you. Please list the subject in the email as “High Contrast”.

    Thanks!

  7. Register Global Hotkey

    Register a global hotkey for windows (e.g. Win + T) to open up a new chat window, without having the application active.

    s4b has such a global hotkeys

    and ability to Customize the hotkeys

    This item is not currently under consideration, though multi-window is the works.

    Please keep the feedback coming and I will keep bringing it to the feature team for review.

    Thank you!

  8. Easier Navigation

    If you click on a teams, you should land directly on the first channel.
    There should be a breadcrumb navigation for the channels in the teams, which can be optionally displayed between teams name and tabs.

  9. Keep Tracked Changes in a Word doc within Teams

    When reviewing to track changes in a Word doc in Teams I need to open it in Word Online. On making the tracked changes, autosaved, and closed the Tracked changes are changed in the Teams view but not tracked for visibility to another reader... Making any review and tracking within Teams somewhat wasted effort and quite counterproductuve across a joint team effort on a single document.

  10. Different Notification Colours

    It would be nice if the "followed channel" notification was a different color than the "direct mention" indicator. since I can't tell the difference, i find myself heading over to teams just to see conversations that I'm probably not interested in, which ends up being bad context-switching for me

    needs your feedback  ·  Warren responded

    I would like to gather some more feedback about this topic. I understand the request is for different colored notifications but I wanted to see about your feedback on the different icons.

    We currently have different icons depending on the activity you are being notified of.
    Such as a direct mention in a channel with have the “@” symbol, letting you know you were @ mentioned.
    A lightbulb icon lets you know about general activity within a channel you follow.
    A chatbox icon appears when channel is mentioned that you are part of.

    And so forth… do these icons help you understand the notifications or do you feel color differentiation is also required?

    Let me know in the comments of this topic thread. Thanks!

  12. Inking on Assignments in Teams

    It would be great if we could use our Stylus to ink directly on a students work that has been submitted in TEAMS. Currently I use the highlight option to show student errors but it would be great if I could be a bit more clear about what is needing improvement. I like the idea of online marking, but it is limiting compared to editing a students printed page. Use of the stylus would override this issue.

  14. zoom in and zoom out buttons

    Sometimes while using the laptop, user inadvertently zooms in and out while using the mouse or trackpad. To get back to the original zoom view for teams, these buttons are not found.

    There should be zoom + and zoom - buttons for every chat window maybe in the lower right corner that should allow for regaining control of zoom.

  18. Disable and mute popup notification for group chats

    It's annoying to be part of group chats you did not want and the others continue talking and the right side of the screen is stacked up by notification pop ups. There is no mute options to these chats as well. Please provide option to mute these groups and allow disabling of popups
