  1. Please make it faster. It seems like it used to work very quickly and lightweight. But now doing any simple chatting taxes my PC!

    Please make it faster. It seems like it used to work very quickly and lightweight. But now doing any simple chatting taxes my PC!

    The fan on my PC goes absolutely crazy once I start up a chat- and especially whenever I open a video chat. My teammates and I were routinely using this to chat throughout the day and now it is becoming a painful bandwidth hog.

    I think this has been happening for at least a couple of months now.

  2. Automatically Update Status

    Have it so that when I'm in a meeting on outlook, it automatically changes to "In a Meeting", or if I'm sharing my screen it goes to "Do Not Disturb" and doesn't show my message notifications on the shared screen.

  5. La aplicación es muy pesada, recalienta el PC

    La aplicación consume mucho procesador y mucha memoria. Es muy pesada en el PC, lo recalienta y me toca cerrarla y abrirla continuamente

  6. Reliability sucks compared to Slack

    Android version so often goes offline. While other chat apps work just fine. Web app is so-so... when the desktop app doesn't make sense to install or you can't. Desktop app also is not great.. sending a file causes the UI to just freeze for a while.

  7. 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!

  8. Make RSS Feeds live

    RSS feeds do not come in as a live feed which is important for real time client problems.

  9. Save my position concerning tab while switching between menus (actions, chat, teams etc.) on the left

    Dears,
    switching between left menu doesn't save my position concerning tab. It lows usability, because i should remember and manually open last tab i was.

  10. 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

  11. Provide better performance and support for larger groups

    When using the Teams desktop app with a large group of people (90) the majority experience terrible lag when switching between private chats or official channels. This makes the app unusable and people are forced to rely on the web version.

  12. Reduce desktop client power consumption

    Teams desktop client background running is draining laptop battery every couple of hours. See attached image. Additionally, since installing the client, whenever I have put the machine into sleep mode, it reboots itself within a matter of seconds of shutting the lid.

    Laptop is a Dell XPS13 (9343) running Windows 10 Pro 1607 14393.1198

  13. not responding

    Since today, so basically the first work day after a couple of updates on Friday, Teams often "hangs" after I click in it. It seems to happen most often if I go back to it after not having focused to screen for a while or if I go into a new (large) chat.

    Did something change in this respect?

  14. Improve system performance by reducing thread usage.

    There's no reason that this one messaging application should run 156+ threads.

  15. Add ability to use non-standard fonts e.g. in PowerPoint & Word in Teams editor

    We use two specific fonts that represent our company's brand in all presentations wherever possible ..... but currently, for shared documents that we would LIKE to work on in Teams, we can't, as the fonts are not recognised when worked on in Teams editor for PowerPoint and Word etc. As a result, we have taken to working offline again !! This is adding a LOT of extra work and inconvenience and goes against the essence of why we have Teams in the first place! Please, Microsoft, add the ability for users (and organisations) to upload and use their own (non-standard)…

  18. - Stop auto-adding every channel I visit to my favorites - Get rid of the giant clip art at the top of every, single, channel - Stop telling

    - Stop auto-adding every channel I visit to my favorites
    - Get rid of the giant clip art at the top of every, single, channel
    - Stop telling me to download the app
    - Put a count of unread messages on each team (instead of just making it bold)

  19. 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

  20. Offline work

    When having connection problems, teams application should not be completely unavailable. It should also not hang open and block the memory of the complete machine.
