  1. Chat Notifications

    Currently, the only types of chat notifications available are email, banner or off. Can you fix it to where the chat will show the bubble if you receive a message, without the banner coming out. I don't want to have to read the banner every time someone IMs me, but I'd like to know I have an unread chat, by some kind of flashing notification, similar to what Skype for Business uses.

  2. Visual Pod for use by Sign Language Interpreter

    Please add a visual pod that can locked in place to show a sign language interpreter. The captioning is good, but our Deaf and Hard of Hearing community has indicated that an interpreter does better and allow for indication when the speaker has changed.

  4. Please make the answer call icon on the incoming call popup Green! the popup is blue, the icon is blue. its confusing

    The popup is blue, the answer call icon is blue, it's confusing. The "ignore call" icon is red and stands out. Users inadvertently click on the wrong icon. frequently. Making the "answer call" icon green would cause it to stand out. (image attached)

  8. Permanent Font/Colour Change

    Please allow permanent change of font and font colour for use in chats. The colour options given now are too light for use in fonts, and they do not allow permanent change.
    This option was available on Skype and should be available here.

  9. 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.

  10. Change Default Keyboard Shortcuts

    Please consider adding an option for users to customize keyboard shortcuts to fit their preferences! (If I had a dollar for every time that I hit Enter instead of the [ ' ] key, thus sending a cryptically fragmented message...)

    While there currently exists a discrepancy between pressing Enter to send and pressing Shift+Enter to start a new line, I believe many users would find it helpful to have to option of DISABLING the Enter to Send shortcut.

  11. Media keys affecting Teams web app.

    Scenario:
    I am listening to music.
    I have teams opened in a Chrome tab.
    I press pause/play to stop the music playback.

    I expect music to stop playing.
    Actually music continues to play and Teams web app is starting to call whoever is on my teams tab.

    I would like the Teams app to be unaffected by media keys or at least have an option to toggle their interactivity.

  12. 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.

  15. zoom in and zoom out buttons

    Sometimes while using the laptop, user inadvertently zooms in and out while using the mouse or trackpad. To get back to the original zoom view for teams, these buttons are not found.

    There should be zoom + and zoom - buttons for every chat window maybe in the lower right corner that should allow for regaining control of zoom.

  16. Slash commands should be available in the same place we type messages.

    As a power user, I wish to be able to enter slash commands in the same control where I type messages, because the inability to do so goes against more than 30 years of precedent for chat applications. Having to enter them elsewhere is counter intuitive and frustrating.

    From an accessibility point of view it makes no sense to force the user to navigate to another control where they still need to type the slash.

    IRC has had slash commands for more than 30 years. Slack, Mattermost, Zoom... all have slash commands integrated in the text entry control too.

    Integrating…

  19. Make an option within TEAMSs to be able to share control of the screen with IPAD users.

    IPADs need to be able to share control of the screen within meetings on TEAMS so that we can use interactive lessons where the student can control the screen to make therapy interactive. Please add this feature similar to that available if using TEAMs from Computer to computer.
