  1. 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!
    -Warren

  2. right-click to quote and reply

    In Skype, we have a very handful feature that allow us to right-click then choose "Quote" to get a message to be quoted in chat-box.
    I think it would be nice if we could have it on Teams.

  4. Up Arrow / Keyboard to Edit Last Message in Teams / Channels

    When will this be added to the compose message textbox in the Teams / Channels area of the app? It currently only functions in Chats and I'm sure a lot of people that voted for that (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16932934-up-arrow-to-edit-last-message) meant a vote for Channels / Teams, too or maybe even more importantly.

  5. 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.

  6. Make it more clear when chatting in a group change vs. private chat

    Please make it more clear you are in a group chat. There have been several times a user will say something in group chat and think they are in a private chat. A different color background and/or color font and/or icon to indicate a group chat.

  7. Video/Call button often clicked accidenlty because it is too close to minimize button

    I often minimize my app but when I am in a conversation tab with someone, the video/call button is directly under the minimize button and I often hit the video/call button by accident. Please place the button next to the user name but not underneath the minimize button.

    Make cache clear easier
    ***************
    Microsoft Teams のモバイルアプリ、クライアントアプリ、web アプリはそれぞれキャッシュクリアの手順が異なると認識をしております。
    キャッシュクリアの手順が複雑であるため、ボタン一つでキャッシュクリアを行えるなど、現段階よりも簡易的なキャッシュクリアの実装を希望します。

    Microsoft Teams mobile app, client app, web app, they all have different way to clear cache. Make cache clear easier by clearing cache on button click as it may be confusing to some users.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  11. Option to close\hide multiple chat windows

    From the recent tab, if we could right click and an option to close\hide multiple chat windows. Precious seconds are lost for those who don't use keyboard shortcuts.
    Another idea could be adding a checkbox when mouse howers over. This way we can quickly select chats and then close them at once.

  12. 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.

  13. speech to text for chat interaction

    User on the Tech Community has reported they find the app difficult because they suffer from carpal tunnel and so would like to do chats and start a call by speech. I believe that Teams should be made accessible to all as far as possible

  14. Copy and Paste

    When trying to copy and paste, if you hold your mouse over the last word in a sentence a menu tab will show instead and does not allow to copy only that word but instead you will need to copy the whole sentence. Really annoying. That menu should only appear if we do right click.

  17. 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.

  19. meeting call me back controls need to be more visible

    When joining from a Computer with Teams installed - It's awesome that the dial out function is enabled from the landing screen.
    Many users say they miss that the functionality is even there because of the placement and the fact the coloring blends into the background.
    Can the functionality be made more prominent?
