  3. It would be nice to have an option to search test within double quotes while using Teams on iOS mobile.

    Let’s say I am looking for a key or ID my colleague pinged long ago in Teams. I wanted to search for it in mobile teams using the few characters/string that I remember like that could be done with the Desktop teams.

  5. Bring back Transcriber for the Surface Neo

    One of the most wonderful tooIs in Windows CE was the award winning Transcriber function. Whilst many devices which allow for the use of a stylus have programs or functionality which converts handwriting into text within applications, Transcriber was unique in that it had the option to utilize the whole screen. Rather than limiting the input space to a prescribed box it allowed handwriting to be overwritten on the whole screen which it then inserted into the place in the document or website etc from the placement of the cursor. Having the freedom to utilize the whole screen real estate…

  7. When making a chat window active, set cursor

    When a chat pop-up is clicked, opening Teams, the Cursor should default to being active. this saves the user from having to move the mouse down to the text box to then type.

  8. Honour the "do not smooth fonts" setting

    Due to eye problems, I have to work with "smooth screen fonts" switched off. That means no ClearType or font aliasing of any kind. Unfortunately Teams doesn't honour this setting, so at present it is almost unusable for me without causing immediate physical pain. Please honour this setting. Not everybody has 20/20 vision.

  9. Team owner should control hiding or showing channels for every member of the team

    As the team owner, I thought when I hid a channel that it would hide for every member, but it is not. It should so they know what is no longer an active topic.

  11. global hotkey to show window

    Hello,
    There should be a global hotkey that allows to bring up the Teams window from tray or task bar.
    I tried registering a windows shortcut on Teams and it works, but for some reason it is very slow, much slower than clicking on the icon with the mouse.

  12. Hotkeys for scrolling in chat (including jump to bottom)

    There should be a way to control the scrolling of the chat window without using mouse - especially, when I scroll up, but a new message arrives, there's no way to quickly jump to bottom using keyboard.

  13. 'Edit in Teams' with Excel files

    Dear team,
    When using the option 'Edit in Teams' with Excel files, formatting options (e.g.: bold, italics, underline...) cannot be applied to a bit of selected text, instead, the format feature you hit is applied to the whole cell.
    I know that using the option 'Open in Desktop App' would solve this limitation, but this is not helpful for our purpose.
    Are you aware of this limitation and, if so, expect to solve it soon?

    Thank you very much for your support.

  14. Need a ribbon so you can have additional tabs, so we can navigate between chats and other channels on Teams.

    E.g. When I'm editing a file on Teams and a chat pops up for me, the moment I click on the chat, my file editing section disappears. Which requires me to then re-open the file etc and scroll all the way down to what I was doing prior.

    Can't we have chats or other channels or functions co-exist at the same time?

  16. Contacts panel no longer auto hides

    Before the last update, the Contacts panel on the left with the Recent chats list no longer auto-hides.

    This is eating up a lot of screen space that could be used in the Conversation panel.

  18. Display YouTube video title and description when sharing a link

    When sharing a YouTube link, it does not pick the title and the description from the link. Instead, it shows the YouTube description.

  19. For Teams chat history, it would be helpful to have group chats color coded or highlighted to make it more obvious those are not 1:1 chats.

  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.
