  2. Open Screen Share window in new Window

    When in a meeting, where someone is sharing a screen,
    Provide a feature, when you are viewing a screen presented by someone else then you can open that in separate window and get back to teams for looking at other chats.
    Currently when someone is sharing screen and you go back to chats, shared screen gets reduced in size.
    Other apps like Circuit, Skype have this feature

  3. 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.

  4. AppleScript for Mute, or global shortcut on MacOS for Mute/Unmute

    Regardless of the whether Microsoft Teams is the frontmost application or not, I would like to be able to have a global keyboard shortcut or a Touchbar icon for Mute/Unmute.

    In a normal MacOS app, I could use UI automation to add such a button, but because Teams is an Electron app, the UI automation is a bit more challenging.

    Here is what I suggest to make this easy. Create a "Meeting" top level menu item when one is in a call. In this menu add the items from the magic tool that shows on hover. This would be: Start/stop…

  5. Transcribe audio messages sent from Teams mobile app

    In addition to making the audio content searchable, a transcription would allow hearing impaired individuals to consume audio messages sent from Mobile clients.

  6. Show and resize pinned video during screen share

    Our Deaf and Hard of Hearing students like that they can pin both their teacher and their interpreter when in a Teams Meeting, but the pinned videos are tiny when the teacher screen shares, which makes it hard to see the ASL. (Closed captions are great but not as much as an interpreter)

  8. 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…

  9. Disable and mute popup notification for group chats

    It's annoying to be part of group chats you did not want and the others continue talking and the right side of the screen is stacked up by notification pop ups. There is no mute options to these chats as well. Please provide option to mute these groups and allow disabling of popups

  10. Captions - Dictionary

    I use the captions for meetings because I'm deaf. The captions doesn't seem to like acronyms, is there a way to add a dictionary to allow us to add company acronym and certain names that aren't recognise by the captions please. I know we can edit it after the meeting, but it difficult to join in conversions if I don't know what they are saying.
    Many thanks.

  11. Sort conversations so the newer posts are at the top rather than bottom

    Messages currently come in with latest content at the bottom of the page. It would be best to use the same format as Yammer and other social media platforms to avoid confusion.

    It should also move the "Start a new conversation" to the top so that its clear you're adding a new conversation and not responding to a prior thread. The actual version if confusing for new users and a lot a unwanted new threads are created because of this.

  12. disappearing scroll bars

    I happen to think that disappearing scroll bars is one of the worst UI disasters of all time (maybe excessive use of pastel shades comes close). Windows 10 gives us an accessibility setting to turn off that annoying "feature". I would like Teams to honor the Windows 10 setting.

  13. reset chat conversation/start new chat button

    It would be nice to have a way to 'reset/start new' chat conversation.
    It should not delete history ... just clear the screen so it is clear where the new conversation starts.

  14. 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.

  15. 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...

  16. 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

    Warren responded

    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!

  17. Mute icon should be in red when muted, so its distinguished on the mic status clearly.

  19. Mark up and write on pictures or PDFs of turned in assignments

    It would be nice to be able to write on pictures or PDFs of assignments turned in by students using a stylus (Apple Pencil). This would be way easier than typing comments to give feedback. I know you can do this in Canvas.
