    I created several links to a SharePoint documents libaries.

  4. 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. Form- Full Intergration--allow for edits within Teams

    With the Form it would be nice if we could utilize full edit modes, even when we add the tab with an existing file.

  7. 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.

  8. 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

  10. Make RSS Feeds live

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

  11. Reward for patience

    Reward for patience with service issues.

    Currently there are Xbox live issues making it unable for me to sign in. I cannot play my games or have fun on my Xbox. It would be amazing if I could be rewarded for my patience. Since I’m paying for Xbox live and cannot use it it would be awsome to even get five bucks in my Microsoft account or a free game or something as this happens quite often nowadays.

  12. 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)…

  13. The whole thing is a waste of time. I do not see any valuable use in this app in addition to what already exists.

    The whole thing is a waste of time. I do not see any valuable use in this app in addition to what already exists.
    You cannot even get the feedback section right. I just wanted to provide some feedback without having to comment on other people's feedback or posting a note. It is just useless and not fit for any purpose.

  16. Improve system performance by reducing thread usage.

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

  17. 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

  18. Calls and editing a document

    when I'm working on a document and on a call, I lose the document when I go back to the call. Why can't I switch to both without having to reopen the document

  19. 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.

  20. 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?
