  2. **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…

  3. Please at least open new window for new chat

    Teams is far worse than Skype pro. I'm always confused when I see an open chat in teams and not a menu similar to Skype Pro.
    I also want to tag my contacts status change alerts and see on a single view who is available and who is not.

  4. Microsoft Windows cannot find Teams using search

    Trying to start teams is very manual. The windows search does not find a Microsoft product.

    Hitting the windows key on the keyboard and typing "Teams" or even "Microsoft Teams" brings up no search results. I have to find the shortcut on my desktop or manually browse through all applications just to find it.

    Our companies current solution (skype for business) that this will be replacing does not have this issue.

  5. Convenience

    I try to use team app everyday. But somethings really bug me, especially when I try to use chat, files. conversations, and meetings at same time. It is possible I can have options to separate those apps . Because it is very difficult to use different functions at same time. I very easily lose track, and I think it’s not hard to have options to drag them in Different taps. Thank you! I can show you what I mean if u like. It will be so great f these get modified or fixed.

  6. Make the 'message delivered' icon green in chats

    The icon for delivered messages looks like a clock now, which indicates it is not yet delivered. To make more clear a message is delivered, make it green, or remove the circle on the check mark.

  9. Is there a (Windows 10) global hotkey for dialing a marked phone number with Microsoft Teams? The reason I don't switch from Skype for Busin

    Is there a (Windows 10) global hotkey for dialing a marked phone number with Microsoft Teams?
    The reason I don't switch from Skype for Business to Microsoft ‘Teams only mode’ is that I use from the company Estos the software Phone Tools (https://www.estos.com/products/phonetools) and there the 'Hotkey Dial' ("Place a call from all applications. Start a call from each application, e-mail or website with a single keystroke (hotkey). The integrated 'hotkey dial' saves you time-consuming tapping on your telephone. The hotkey can be defined specifically for a user in order to ensure trouble-free operation even with keys already…

  10. status colors, need more, clearer obvious

    More than 3 status colors or make it more obvious what each is. In a meeting should show that more clear and label it better to no disturb people. Or use a red/green half & half combination.

  12. Chating while working on a file

    I'd like to work on a file while chating, it seems that we can't do both simultaneously... it's really annoying since I have to close my work in progress in order to answer someone.

  16. Make the different content sharing options more clearly distinguishable

    When sharing content, many users are finding the different options between desktop, window, and presentation difficult to distinguish - especially as they can be a little overwhelming in number! A window is often shared rather then the screen leading to confusion and delay. Please make the different sections much clearer either by making the option label clearer and/or by visually separating them out using tone and/or colour. Thanks

  17. skype quick multiple user message

    Skype has the ability to right click 2 or 3 users to setup a quick temporary group chat this is a definite basic feature that should be in teams.

  19. Allow pinch to zoom for users with low vision

    I’ve noticed that there are not functions that allow me to pinch to zoom in on conversations or make text larger. This would be really nice to have. I’m using Teams on my iPad. OneNote is a great example of how this could work.
