  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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?

  4. Improve system performance by reducing thread usage.

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

  5. 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)…

  8. - 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)

  9. 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

  10. 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.

  13. why can't i save a pdf to Teams

    PDF files cannot be saved to Teams which is a huge problem for my area of work. I manage an accounting department and my staff and I work with hundreds of pdf files. This is an obvious flaw in Teams and should be easily rectified. Another problem is not being able to open a PDF file in Adobe Pro while in Teams.

  15. Report Generation

    Add report generation of completed, in progress, outstanding action items with a time line. Be Automatic populated and editable as the user want. It must link with MS Project to create a schedule.

    There must be graphical representation of the information concerning the project. There is a need to add some colors on the Planner just like Trallo.

  19. 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.
