  1. Performance Improvements

    Kaizala is one of the fastest apps for instant messing, outpacing even WhatsApp. It would be great if Teams chat worked as quickly. I also have performance problems when on Android, the teams app simply never recieved messages when the app is closed. It is allowed to work in the background, but still nothing.

  2. Page through all images in a thread with L/R arrow keys

    When there are multiple images in a thread to review them you have to click on it to expand, then close and open the next one. The ability to page through them without the close/open action would be greatly appreciated.

  3. Automatic refresh - file tab view

    In file tab view, if you duplicate or copy an existing file, the file does not appear until you leave the tab and come back again. This is not acceptable, especially not for a novice users.

    I understand that lack of automatic refresh is a general problem to Teams.

    And no. A refresh button is not the solution. Take a look at how your competitors perform.

  4. Microsoft Teams is using a lot of data, it's data usage is too high, Microsoft Teams can get better with low data usage in long meeting.

    Microsoft Teams is using a lot of data in a short period of time, it's data usage is too high, Microsoft Teams can get better with low data usage in long meeting.
    Please make a solution on this.

  5. Ability to save entire chat conversations to Outlook

    It would be helpful to be able to save full chat conversations to Outlook to have for documentation rather than the current feature of only being able to save one piece of the conversation

  6. Poor mouse cursor performance while sharing over RDP connection

    We regularly use Teams to present our screens. We noticed that Teams has very poor mouse cursor tracking when we are connected via remote desktop to our machines. Skype for Business has no such tracking issues, but with Teams the cursor is very jittery/laggy. The issue this presents is you often misjudge where the cursor is going to "land" after you stop moving the mouse, resulting in clicking on the wrong element on your screen. As soon as you stop presenting in Teams the cursor performance goes back to normal.

  7. Improve Teams client performance when editing Excel files

    The performance of editing Excel files in Teams client is slower than that in Excel app. Editing files in Teams client is slower than Team web app, so it would be great that we could edit Excel file by using Teams client like you normally would in Excel app.

  8. Provide a means to share or create team playlists. It would be fantastic to be able to build team playlists and share them.

    As developers work throughout the day, we all listen to music which increases productivity. As we collaborate and share what we're listening to, we've come to realize how great it would be to develop playlists as a team and share them amongst us. In addition, it would be another great idea to have a bot that can "Add this to your playlist?" and have the team vote on whether the song is added or not.

    Need to be able to shuffle and upvote or downvote songs as a team. This... would...be... awesome.

  11. ALLOW US TO DELETE CHAT SESSION WHEN DONE WITH IT

    It's extremely frustrating to have days and days worth of old chat in there, why can't we delete a chat session when we are done with our discussions?

  12. Show the full email message which is more than 25kb when sent to the channel

    Please show the full email message whose size is more than 25kb when we post it to the channel. It is inconvenient that we cannot view the full message, and we see the warning, "The email message is too large to display here. Click on "Download original email" below to see it."

  13. Be able to mark up drawings w/in the program.

    I'm an architect, and we use Teams to share ideas and sketches. It would be great to be able to mark up an image or PDF within the Teams program without needing to download the file, mark it up, then repost said file. Similar to Autodesk Bluebeam.

  15. Improve copying data from Teams

    Copying data out of teams works very poorly. As soon as I mouse over a short piece of text, like an ID number, it changes to three ellipses, with the ribbon and thumb. I can no longer select the text I want with my mouse! This is very poor design.

  16. Performance

    Individual pages load slowly. For example, opening the planner app or the onenote app is sluggish. Opening a word or excel file is also slow. This is when I try to access it using the Teams App (thick client).

  17. PDF viewer/preview slow

    Opening a PDF located in the files tab in Teams is quite slow compared to opening the same document via the SharePoint Online interface. Please improve performance of the Teams file preview function.

  18. Multi-tasking and Notifications

    I am a student and have enjoyed using Teams, and I think it has many great features; however, I would like to suggest how it even further enhance the experience. Unlike most applications, Teams only allows you to view one screen at a time. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have resorted to conducting school online. That ability to only view one screen at a time has proved to be less than desirable because most of my teachers will post a resource in the form of a PDF and then a separate document to answer questions. I have to close…

  20. Improve Teams admin center interface

    If we slit up/down when we mouse over the navigation bar in the Teams admin center, the unfolded menu will show up on the wrong position. If we zoom out the interface, the position of the menu will be reset.
