  1. Make the vertical scroll bar bigger and more visible

    The vertical scroll bar is very thin and not easy to see or click on. Make it more like a regular Windows slider that is permanently visible.

  3. 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. 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.

  6. High Contrast

    For vision impaired uses that use custom High Contrast Theming, the Teams apps does not correctly map to the colors. For example, left list uses the Disabled vs Selected colors. Microsoft should be fully committed to one standard for Theming; especially for High Contrast Theme. It is critical for the vision impaired.

    Warren responded

    I apologize for being fairly ignorant on this topic. The color scheme setting can be found by clicking your portrait icon within Teams at the upper right. Under the General Settings you can select, Default color theme, Dark, or High Contrast. This follows the Windows OS high contrast theme and my understanding is also following the global standards.

    If you are having issues could you let me know what exactly is happening or specifics you feel need to change? If you could tell me both and maybe even email me screen shots to TeamsML@microsoft.com I can work to see what I can do for you. Please list the subject in the email as “High Contrast”.

    Thanks!

  7. Register Global Hotkey

    Register a global hotkey for windows (e.g. Win + T) to open up a new chat window, without having the application active.

    s4b has such a global hotkeys

    and ability to Customize the hotkeys

    This item is not currently under consideration, though multi-window is the works.

    Please keep the feedback coming and I will keep bringing it to the feature team for review.

    Thank you!

  8. Higher contrast font colors, more font size choices

    Have the font color selection include fonts with better contrast levels from the background. On the standard white background (don't know about others as my company has disabled themes), colors other than black are extremely hard to read.

    As other users have noted, please add more font size choices, particularly for Wiki page titles. They are barely distinguishable from subheadings.

  10. Please add the functionality to "Paste Special"

    When working on Teams, and also in Office 365, you can't "Paste special". This is super annoying, and is stopping a lot my colleagues from using teams. Which defeats the purpose of us paying for it.

  11. 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.

  12. scroll to zoom reversed

    Scrolling to zoom into an image is reversed to what it should be. This behavior is on both mouse wheels and on the magic trackpad for mac

    If you have experienced this could you please confirm in the topic comments if this is still happening for you?

    The zoom feature has been released on PC and I’m hoping it also resolved this odd experience but please let me know!

  13. 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.

  15. 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

    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!

  16. searching

    The ability to search any types of WIKI within teams. if there is just clear text, please provide a type of search for that within groups. I can search files and other items just fine, but not clear text within groups, or Wiki's. This makes it very hard to find material.

  18. Add "In Review" or "On Hold" to Progress status of a Task

    To align with Agile methodologies, which have four status options for "user stories"/tasks, add a fourth option in the Progress drop down menu on each Task. The fourth option could be customizable or could be fixed to either "In Review" or "On Hold." Either gets a similar point across.

    The four options in Agile could be:
    to-do
    doing
    in review
    completed

  19. 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.

  20. Multiple Windows

    I chat privately all day and am part of and/or owner of Teams channels as well. I really need to be able to open both a chat window and a Teams window simultaneously so that there is not the constant need for keystrokes to go back and forth. People even get confused and put an entry they meant to put into a channel into a private chat because they forget which window is open. Opening multiple windows will enable you to watch and respond simultaneously just like you have email open all the time.
