      Hi everyone, I sent over your feedback to the performance team and they let me know they are actively working on this.

      “Our development organization is continually working to improve product performance and has several efforts currently underway around memory usage, action responsiveness and application start time. Updates which improve performance are part of our regular update process. Thank you for your feedback regarding the performance of Microsoft Teams.”

      I will check in on them in a few weeks to see if we can get exact numbers/details on what’s been improved, and I’ll let you know.

      Meanwhile, have a great weekend and don’t forget to set your clocks forward by an hour for Daylight Savings!

      Sincerely,
      Suphatra

    • Delay navigating between views

      There is a noticeable delay navigating between channels as well as switching between the Chat and Teams tab. This accumulates when I have to frequently switch between individual chats and team chats.

          • Giphy slow search and images load blank

            Improve performance of Giphy. Yes I know it isn't yours but it is so slow at times to load a search result or the gif doesn't load at all. Maybe provide them with free Azure hosting?

            • Improve Speed of the Desktop Application

              Teams is very slow to switch between items, type on threaded conversations, pretty much do about anything on a really advanced, modern computer.

                • Need Performance & Stability Improvement

                  MS Teams currently slower in terms of start-up, restarts, logouts often, slow call establishment compared to other tools. Needs improvement on the performance and stability part of it.

                  • Open two Multiple Microsoft team applications running on the same computer - Dual or Tri-Monitor Scenario

                    I have downloaded the Microsoft Teams Application and I would like to be able to open another instance of the ap to run at the same time on a different monitor. I am using a Tri-monitor scenario. I like how teams pulls everything together, however, without the ability to open multiple instances its forcing all of your aps onto one monitor which defeats the purpose of having multiple monitors. I do this all the time with Excel. If it can do this already, I have not figured it out yet.

                    • Speed, speed, speed. The system is so extremely slow. My US Robotic Sporter modem was faster.

                      Finish the development and perform some probing before release!

                        • Website not rendering properly within Teams

                          Why do websites not render properly within tabs? We see the website but it is shifted lower in the screen and at the top it says website not accessible! This worked last week and now no longer works!

                          • Make it load faster and load in the background.

                            Right now it simply loads too slowly, and it has that massive in-your-face splash screen while doing it.

                            • Keep tab content in memory

                              Right now, switching between tabs is painfully slow since tab content is reloaded everytime you visit a tab. (Especially true for integrated web services like Wrike)

                                • Teams should respect the Display scale of the display it is on, not only of Main screen (Windows)

                                  Running Windows on a Retina MacBook with an external monitor I have the scale of the retina display set to 175% and the external (Main display) to 100%.

                                  Now if the main screen (seemingly only on boot counts) is the external one, the teams interface is so small that it is basically illegible. If the external monitor is disconnected while booting the teams UI is normal on the Retina display, but gigantic on the external one, when connected. Other apps seem to handle this, it would be nice if Teams could, too!

                                    Please!! add video playback directly in teams!!
                                    Is a nightmare to have to download it or open it in the browser and login every time, specially if you work in a lot of video projects

                                    • Teams uses 100% CPU when run inside a Parallels Virtual Machine

                                      All our employees use Macbooks. If they install the Mac version of Teams on Mac OS X, or install Windows natively (via Bootcamp) and install the Windows version of Teams, then performance is absolutely fine.

                                      However, if they install it into Windows 10 running as a Parallels VM, it uses 100% CPU, and slows the machine to a crawl.

                                      This is readily reproducible, and I am happy to supply additional information if required - I have attached the OS and Parallels version information.

                                        • Expanding/collapsing and adding messages to long conversations are slow

                                          I have conversations longer than 100 messages often. When expanding or collapsing them causes the width of grouped messages (a post) changes to fit with the maximum width content of the visible messages. This causes the rendering engine to redo the whole layout and painting process. Also clicking the reply area changes the layout (the reply box gets bigger) and makes the UI slow.

                                          I think we need to minimize re-layout and repainting as much as possible to get smooth and responsive UI. It would be better to fix the post/message widths to the width of conversation view. I hope…
