  1. Reduce memory usage and improve slow performance

    Team is a memory hog! 100s MB! Slack is about 50.

      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

    • Improve Search with Partial Word Search

      Currently when you perform a search you will only find the exact word you type, but I think it should do at least partial word search, e.g., find the word "categorize" in the word "categorized".

      • 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.

            • 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.

                • Print

                  Am I missing something?? Can't believe there's no option to print a document without downloading it & if you don't catch the download dialogue box you have to then open your downloads folder to retrieve, this is a real pain when printing multiple items! Please fix!!

                      • 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!

                        • 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!

                          • 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.

                            • Inertial scrolling for touch pad gestures (like in other office applications)

                              The other office apps and windows 10 features respond very well to scrolling on touch devices or with precision touchpad gestures, including the whole office suite. Scrolling through threads in teams feels lethargic and unresponsive.

                                It should be enabled the user to make a backlog instead of creating a rush of documents for a vivid progress view instead of a rush of created documents.

                                  • 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.

                                    • Teams writes gigs of data to my macbook pro hard drive and crashes outlook

                                      twice now I've had to have an IT resource clear my hard drive of errant files created by teams that fills the drive (128 GG, just deleted 68GB of Teams files), and makes desktop Outlook inoperable on my macbook pro.
