  1. I would really love a keyboard shortcut to hide chats.

    I would like a keyboard shortcut to hide chats. Similarly to how skype would close a chat window when hitting escape. This would be very handy for a management team. Example: You are discussing an employee issue with a superior and that employee comes up behind your desk while you are in mid type.

  2. Ability to expand the header so you can see the file's full name

    If the file's name is too long, right now, you can only hover over the file name to see the file's full name. Please add a function so users can expand the header.

  5. fold at once all the teams

    I would be great to have a button to fold (also unfold) all the chanels of all the teams with one single click. So we would see just a list of all the teams without chanels.

  6. Could please create a way to change the interface to make it more user friendly.

    Create a way to model the interface more. Now for instance the call tabs are arranged speed dial, contact, history and voice mail. And I would like to be able to have contact on top so I can start searching directly.

  7. Code block with language name and syntax highlighting

    In github or other platform, we just need to
    ```cs
    public static void Main() {
    DoSomething();
    // comment
    ```
    and will get it beatifully syntax highlighting.
    But in MSTeams, we need to
    1. click on [format] button
    2. click on [...] button
    3. click on [Code snipet]
    4. click on [>] to expand language menu
    5. click on language name
    6. typing code
    7. click on [Insert] button

    Too much click :( too much distract because my finger mush leave keyboard to grab a mouse and click.

    MSteam should support quick formating code based on language name after ``` like…

  8. Active sign in

    Teams doesn't try to sign in again if the first attempt fails. It would be good if Teams is constantly trying to sing in until the internet connection is available.

  9. 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.

  10. the correct item should be highlighted

    click on a recent chat then go to teams
    then change back to contacts

    there is a conversation displayed but for which contact?
    this is no contact highlighted and it should be

    since this terrible app does not have the ability to have tabbed conversations and the wrong contact is highlighted

    the wrong person gets the message often

    Hate teams but forced to use this pre-alpha software

  11. To know the status of the message from the history

    We don't have a feature to remind/to know the status for one of the old messages which we had in one to one conversation. We have this feature in Slack. This will avoid retying and can remind them that we have already informed them earlier. In that way, they can think that as a follow up message.

  12. I want to be able to edit text files directly in teams

    or at least open them normally so you don't have to save them somewhere and upload them again.

  13. In contacts and speed dial, allow the individual contacts to be listed on one line, similar to the old Skype for Business.

    The GUI has every contact in a large box, with a tiny dot to reflect their status. Please make each listing only one line, comparable to the old Skype for Business, so I can see many more contacts and their status in less space on the screen. Also, allow me to reduce the size of the window. I can't surrender a full 1/3 of the screen to one app that does not get used all the time.

  15. Screen Share needs dual monitors and Control feature not working

    Screen share needs an option to show both screens simultaneously. Also during screen share, you may request control but the option to give access is greeted out and doesn’t work. The user sharing their screen should be able to give control and that feature does not work either.

  17. Add alternative text or image descriptions to images, GIFs, stickers, and other content for accessibility.

    Add alternative text or image descriptions to images, GIFs, stickers, and other content for accessibility. Allow users to add image descriptions (even potentially of other users' images). Thanks!

  19. UI on dark and light mode

    Hi. The color on dark mode is too contrast and really hurts eyes. I suggest to turn white into light grey and black background into dark blue. Also, the way you make unread channel by using blood style for name and regular style for read channel are not constrast enough. Perhaps give a box or make the read-title lighter.
