  1. Test Microphone/Speakers from inside the application.

    It would be nice to be able to test the Microphone and Speakers, to make sure everything is working.

  2. 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.

  4. Cannot reorder Teams if there are more than monitor window height. Cannot reorder Teams at all except with mouse (accessibility violation)

    If you have more Teams than will fit vertically in the available space in your monitor/window, you will not be able to drag any above a certain point, making it possible to reorder them. The pane does not scroll up, even when the mouse approaches/surpasses the edge.

    Also, AFAIK, using the mouse is the only way to reorder Teams. For people who cannot use a mouse, there is no solution.

    At a minimum, please offer these (hopefully low-hanging) solutions:


    1. Right-click a Teams menu and choose "Move Up / Move Down"


    2. Somewhere in Teams, offer an option: "Order Teams Alphabetically". A…

  6. Request Control button - move, add confirmation, or allow undo

    I've got tremors, and the Request Control button is way too easy to hit when I want to look at the chat or participants list

    Please move the button, add a confirmation, or allow the request to be withdrawn.

  7. "multi-tab" feature to switch between files or view 2+ files at the same time.

    I would really like a "multi-tab" feature to quickly switch between files or refer to two files on different tabs at once.

  8. Auto Spellcheck should operate like Word, Outlook, etc.

    I can't believe this isn't posted.

    If Teams is intended to be a primary project communication platform, this NEEDS to be addressed. It is good at recognizing a misspelled words, but the next step is where it fails miserably. I'll get a short list or a list of 20 options, or it just face-plants. The word "Didnt" without the apostrophe, only suggests, "Diderot". However, lowercase "didnt" will suggest the correct punctuation. Whaaat?! Oh, and the biggie: why cant i add a word to a Dictionary. We all work with uniques terms, words and names, that are constantly being asked to…

  10. Make the Teams navigation bar editable

    The Teams navigation bar includes "Activity", "Chat", "Teams", "Calendar", "Calls", and "Files".

    Under the 'more options' ellipses, other useful tools are available such as "Shifts" or "Planner". If a Team is making use of one of these other tools, it would be convenient if that tool were able to be pinned into the navigation bar for easy access for the entire team.

    It would also be convenient to be able to re-order the navigation bar for team members to prioritize tabs they use most often.

  11. 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?

  13. 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.

  14. Code block with language name and syntax highlighting

    In github or other platform, we just need to
    ```cs
    public static void Main() {

    DoSomething(); 
    
    // comment

    ```
    and will get it beatifully syntax highlighting.
    But in MSTeams, we need to
    1. click on [format] button
    2. click on [...] button
    3. click on [Code snipet]
    4. click on [>] to expand language menu
    5. click on language name
    6. typing code
    7. click on [Insert] button

    Too much click :( too much distract because my finger mush leave keyboard to grab a mouse and click.

    MSteam should support quick formating code based on language name after ``` like…

    Keyboard shortcuts for navigating unread messages and conversations and marking them read/unread. Slack has really good keyboard shortcuts for navigating between unread teams and conversations, and it's a big productivity-booster. Vy

  17. Allow us to opt out of the automatic hiding of teams. It keeps hiding the team I use the most!

    Provide an option where you can turn off the automatic hiding of teams that haven't been used in a while. The current algorithm has a glitch and it is hiding the Team I use the most. I have to "show" it every day!!!

  18. Link from Planner app task to actual task in Teams

    The Planner app in Teams provides an overview of tasks assigned to a user in various Teams channels.
    Typically it would be useful to be allowed to navigate back to the actual task within Teams to review the task within the context of the channel/tab/etc.

  19. Make the contacts list collapsible

    Microsoft, please go back and make the contacts pane collapsible again! Not only is this a privacy issue, if someone comes over, the pane just takes up way too much space!
    This is an inconvenience,, especially since there is not even an option to make it smaller.
    Get it together Microsoft!
