  2. Implement a feature that prioritizes Microsoft Teams other than other applications

    If you use Microsoft Teams desktop client, Teams performance becomes degraded when anti-virus software runs real time scan.
    So, we would like to ask to implement a feature that enforces Teams process so that Teams performance won’t be affected by other processes.

  3. Clear local cache button

    Teams has a bunch of difference local caches and temp files that just continually grow forever in %appdata%\Microsoft\teams. It would be great to have a button that would wipe out all the local cache and temp files in this folder. Doing it manually has a very noticeable performance gain throughout teams.

    As it stands, I'm going to write a powershell script to run on all the workstations I manage periodically to close teams and clean this up as a refresh of teams.

  4. Provide a split screen for Chat & Teams screens to be visible at the same time

    Offer the screen to have a chat overlay or transparency to when a Teams file is open.It seems that if a file is open on Teams and the Chat is active, that IM's are only visible by a blinking icon indicator for incoming IM's. Also, the performance is not as optimal when you need to click from chat to teams to check an IM and the Teams file opened closes and needs to be reopened every time

  5. How about adding spell check in Teams?

    I only picked Performance because it seemed to be as close as I can get for a category.

    The only place there is spell checking is in the Wiki feature. Why not have it everywhere? For a collaboration tool, it doesn't provide a professional presentation if your entries are peppered with typos. I know, spell correctly...but how many people can do without spell check in other applications and feel comfortable with it? I wouldn't be happy. So why not have this available in Teams?

    Sorry if I have any typos in this... ;)

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  8. Stabilize the Teams performance

    Compared with Skype for Business, Teams performance tends to be unstable when the caches or service incidents effects on it. I would like you to improve the overall performance.

  9. Shorten time it takes to migrate user from Skype for Business to Teams Only

    Whenever i migrate users from Skype for Business Only to Teams Only, it takes more than a weekend for every client (desktop, mobile or browser) to completely register as a teams user.
    Half of the migrated users still show up as Skype for Business Users for two or more days after migrating.
    Really frustrating and its ruining the first experience a fresh teams user has.

  10. 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…

  11. DELETE BUTTONS PLEASE!!!

    Please make a delete function for chat features and alerts. This is the worst design I have ever seen. Once you are done with a conversation or addressed items in your activity/alerts you should be able to delete them. This will make the platform be more user-friendly and have a cleaner design. The hide conversations feature isn't practical since the conversations keep coming up.

  12. video calls

    When I do the video calls, the video of other person, shared screen eveything shows up in a single monitor. It should be allowed to see the video and screen sharing in two different monitors, like Skype. This is one of most feature I do not like it at all.

  13. Please, please,please I want to be able to print out the documents straight from Teams

    My company switched from One drive and Share Point to using teams at the beginning of the year. We all absolutely love all the features and tools that Microsoft teams has.
    But there is one thins that makes it so inconvenient- I cannot print the docs straight away from the teams up. In order to print any document (word or excel) I have to ether download it first or open in the browser. In Onedrive and Sharepoint we were able to print it straight away without additional steps.
    Please, please, please add this simple feature that will safe us all…

  15. Excel-in-Teams Improvements

    Allow for more Excel functionality in the teams window rather than opening the file in the desktop app . List of additions:
    -Allow borders to be customized and not limited to a selection of top, left, right, bottom, etc.
    -Copy/Paste of content does not copy cell color formatting into other applications, i.e. email
    -Allow adding custom conditional formatting rules like users normally can in the excel desktop app.

  19. It is a memory hog.

    Don't even have to use it. Just leave it idle, nd memory usage keeps creeping up. Currently it sits at 930MB.

  20. Add support for NVENC (NVidia), QuickSync (Intel), and VCE (AMD). (Hardware Video Encoding)

    Most video cards now days support Hardware Video encoders which can substantially reduce the load to do video encoding while providing acceptable output.

    I'm in video chat for most of my 8 hour work day and Teams is always the single highest utilization because of the video. Switching to hardware encoding would significantly reduce that.
