  2. visibility

    I need better definition of windows EDGES. I suffer from Glaucoma and I cannot make out the EDGES of WINDOWS. I get lost trying to figure out where the corners and edges are so I often cannot close windows or even know what things are in what window. IT'S MOREFRUSTRATING THAT A BSOD!!!

  3. desktop version needs to better suit or adapt to size of screen

    The desk top app needs 2/3 the width of my 15 inch screen in order to show the scroll bar on the right hand side. This is very impractical when trying to use the programme whilst doing other work. Whilst I can make the window smaller, the scroll bar disappears and I can't navigate through the chat log.

    It would be good if I can choose to scale down the programme since I don't really need the top bar (with search option) to be as bit as it is, when I'm using the laptop.

  5. Create a "saved bookmarks" icon on the left along with Activities, etc.

    We use bookmarks a lot to make sure we don't miss stuff we want to follow up on. We can access all of our bookmarks under our profile, but it would be far more convenient if we could access it with one click. My suggestion is that there should be a bookmarks icon along the left bar where Activity, Teams, etc. are located.

  8. Office documentation is locked while editing in Microsoft Teams

    When I open another tab of the Office documentation while editing in Microsoft Teams and try to work on the original documentation, following message may be shown, “Another user (aka my name) is currently editing it”.
    This file lock problem is announced in the below article, refer to “Another user is editing the file” section:
    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/unlock-a-file-that-has-been-locked-for-editing-bdda0d41-1b8e-44ed-a6ae-6d095d37c22d?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US

    I have to wait for a while till the documentation would become editable, but this would be a really frustrated situation.
    I would request the function improvement to allow unlock the file when working with another tab.

  9. OSX Hotkey CMD+1 to show window

    Please add "CMD+1" to open the window when it is minimized or hidden, this is pretty standard on OSX as far as I can tell.

    Or customizable hot keys.

  11. Allow for change of background/font colors

    Allow us to change fonts or background colors as default grey font on white background makes it really hard to see...

  12. There is a bug in the text-to-speech feature for Italian language

    If you enable text-to-speech, for example in Word, text as follows

    «Buona notte.»

    is read as

    BUONA NOTTE PUNTO

    that is, the period at the end is read, not ignored as expected. This occurs only if guille­mets are used. Please, note that guillemets are very common in Italian language for dialogues, and that punctuation mark is always inside the quotation marks.

  14. Edited messages timestamp removed in chat

    When a message is edited, timestamp is replaced with "edited". It would be helpful to leave the timestamp as is and show "edited" next to it.

  15. Personalised shortcuts

    For anyone who uses the proper version of Skype regularly we will be familiar with the need of pesonalised shortcuts.

    This product cannot be taken seriously until this functionality is available.

  16. auto hide sidebar should hide after choosing channel/team

    When the side bar is on auto-hide (when window is sized to a smaller width), once a Team channel is clicked, the sidebar should auto-hide again.

  19. Make the default to respond to the latest conversation not start a new one

    When I open the app it automatically goes to a new conversation. It would be better if it went to the conversation for which I received a notification. Maybe make a + button for new conversations.

  20. 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...
