  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?"

      I want to assure you that overall performance, speed, cpu, memory, etc. are all being worked upon.

      We want to get these improvements to you ASAP – and so are releasing fixes as they are made, which in turn will snowball into a larger improved feel. (As opposed to holding these in earlier rings, and then doing a big bang update.)

      Please know that the feature team is hard at work on dozens of items to make these improvements. We’re seeing great gains in performance in earlier rings of deployment, and you will soon see these improvements as they’re released to further rings.

      Again, it won’t be a single update that’ll address all the concerns, and it will take time. But gains are steadily and surely coming.

      -Warren

    • 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)

      • 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.

          • Cache Something, Anything

            My goodness, every time you start Teams it's as though it's the first time. Most or all history is gone until it pulls it down from the cloud again. If you want us to use it, make it start in less than 60 seconds.

            • Reduce lags when scrolling through chat history

              Browsing chat history is difficult even in case of only few days old messages because these are not loaded on time when scrolling.
              I would like the ability to cache chat hostory locally for selected channels and decide how much time of the history I want to be available locally.

              • screen sharing sucks

                How is that the free version Skype screen sharing have no issues, at the same time the paid version (Teams) always have issues, even though the teams screen share is a wrapper on existing skype?

                • Activate hyperlinks in PDF File Viewer

                  Currently when I open a PDF in MS Teams "PDF File Viewer" I cannot click on the hyperlinks. Instead I have to download the document or open it in SharePoint just to click a link. Such a waste of time!

                  • Interface has a lot of lag

                    Interface has a lot of lag and requires massive improvements. I cant quickly scroll through the lists in activity area. Same is many other area particularly when the conversation has lot of messages.

                      • Make copying a chat conversation easier

                        At our company, 100% of its employees telecommute. This makes our preferred method of live communication to be chat. Sometimes we need to copy snippets of a conversation into a work order, and it is SO difficult to copy text from Teams. Sometimes a person's name won't even appear above their text, once pasted, and the information has to be recreated. Please test this for yourself - copy and paste a few lines of a conversation, and please fix this!!!! Thanks!

                        • speed when opening tabs

                          When I open a tab (a OneNote tab for instance) there is a 2 - 3 seconds delay while it loads.
                          This even happens everytime I switch tabs, which is extremely annoyng. Maybe you could implement a cache or something to prevent this?

                          • Adding attachments is super slow, it really need speedup

                            Addign attachments is very slow process. Something minuscule like 50kb sile adding takes 5-10 sec. Lager files naturally longer. It should be instantaneous.

                            And why I have to wait for the upload at first place before I can send an message. It should be background process.

                            • 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

                              • Assignments should be able to be sent back to students so they can resubmit either so they can act on feedback or if their work is not good

                                All work entered needs to ha e feedback for students but this is not much good if the student can't have the chance to act on the feedback and improve or redraft work.
                                A button to send work back to students or just to allow more files to. We submitted would be great

                                • 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!

                                    • MS Teams kills laptop battery life

                                      Teams constantly consumes a small amount of cpu time which blocks my laptop from ever sleeping or hibernating because it is never idle. This is not ideal for many reasons. Obviously the software designed around a polling model which is not generally considered to be a great design pattern. To rephrase this as an idea: Change teams so it works on an event based model rather than constantly polling for updates.

                                        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
