  1. Teams uses 600MB and is super slow!

    Quotes from various users about memory usage and slow performance:

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

    "The memory consumption is over 300MB!!! This should be a priority."

    "Just started evaluating teams, 500+ MB and 10-15% CPU. This is in a citrix VDI. Does teams use hardware rendering? If so is there a way to turn it off? I had to do this with the rest of Office."

    "I dont understand why my Teams application only uses 70MB when other people in my organization are towards half a gig! What is causing this Teams?"

    "Make it…

    Great performance and user experience remain a topmost priority for us. Application launch time has seen improvements in the recent build. We will continue making improvements across the product including channel to chat switching and overall resource consumption.

  2. Reduce Memory Usage

    Microsoft Teams is currently the most RAM consuming application on my Windows 7 Professional Laptop. I would expect there is room for improvement.

  4. Teams keep crashing

    Literally Teams will crash 5 or 6 times a day. Hugely annoying and unproductive. The user experience and reliability is so poor I am surprised Microsoft has even allowed this to go out the door

  6. Teams using a lot of CPU

    For some reason the latest update has Teams using between 8% and 25% CPU idling, doing nothing. There is an issue with this update.

  7. 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.

  9. scroll performance - messages are grey boxes before rendering

    scroll lag : scrolling performance (i.e. to previous messages in a chat/channel) is much worse than expected - messages don't render for a noticeable period of time

  11. network bandwidth

    Looking at UserVoice there are a few requests dealing with network utilization. Microsoft provided guidance on network bandwidth requirements for media traffic with Skype(https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/skypeforbusiness/plan-your-deployment/network-requirements/network-requirements). This helps provide large enteprise customers guidance during architectural decisions as well as assist with right sizing their current audio/video usage. This is missing for Team and is needed to assist customers sizing their environment correctly as well as assist with future planning. This can help decrease some of the network bandwidth asks as customers will have better guidance on what is expected with Teams over SfB

  12. when presenting allow presenter to see participants and the chat aswell.

    allow presenter to see the presentation and the participants as it is really difficult to control and run the presentation professionally when you cannot see your audience and you cannot utilise the chat as a way of participating

  14. Switch between accounts

    Give teams the ability to switch between accounts. I have to log in and out everytime I want to change accounts that represent different companies. Also, if it was more integrated with outlook, it would make my life better.

  16. Make it faster

    Teams app on win 10 is frustratingly slow to close after clicking red x. Taskbar lights up with new message but shows name of last conversation partner not new one. Opening up to see a new message starts you where you left off instead of new message. Badges on phone app don’t go away if I check on messages using Windows app. Nowhere near as snappy as like, AIM back in the day

  17. Ability to shrink the search bar.

    The search bar spans a large area of the top bar. It's very difficult to move the Teams window around my desktop because we can't click and drag

  18. Preference to open linked docs in local/desktop version of excel/word/onenote - and not always Office Online

    We use OneNote and Excel quite extensively. We share files via Team channels all the time. But opening them in Office Online is very very slow. We want to open the document in the desktop versions of Excel and OneNote as a first choice.

  19. Improve Audio Quality in Teams Meetings and Video Calls

    I get several complaints on the audio quality within a teams meeting or video call. When more than one person speaks, it gets glitchy audio sound and cancels out both speakers (or multiple speakers) intermittently. My employees are complaining so much about the choppy quality of the audio, they're going back to Zoom.us. Please help so I don't have to manage multiple platforms!

  20. Battery usage on Windows 10

    There are many comments and ideas about battery usage on IOS and Android but I've noticed that the battery usage on my laptop has increased somewhat.

    When I go to Start > Settings > System > Battery > 'See which apps are affecting your battery life' and change period to 1 week i can see that Microsoft Teams is using 31% of battery. Second place is Outlook with 14% so its definitely an issue.

    Interestingly, i use Outlook all day, every day heavily and its only using that much battery. Teams is always in my sys stray and i rarely…
