  1. Get rid of the "You Can't Get There From Here" message

    When you login from Outside of your VPN network, you should be able to just log in Once, and Never have to see a 'You Can't Get There From Here' message. Formerly, you had to close that window and repeat 2 or 3 times before Teams would finally let you in. Now, I no longer get that option, instead, I'm just in an endless loop of getting that message every time I log in, so I never get to use the product.

  2. Make it more reliable - Provide a better error message

    Provide a better error message when a user can't sign in. Im getting a 500 error logging in because the Teams service is down. ON MONDAY MORNING. Slack never did this and when slack was having issues you could see it directly on their site and a real status was provided. I spent an hour trying to log in and it's your own service that's down. Would have been nice to know.

  4. Load times are painfully slow, collaboration on the same document is unmanageable.

    Slack and Drive do this seamlessly. Why can't Office 365?

  6. Real time user status updates

    Teams is very delayed in updating user's statuses unless you click on a chat with them. The recent/favorite chat list user statuses should be updated real-time like in Skype.

  7. Desktop app performance degrades significantly when sharing screen

    It takes seconds for any interaction to go through, including typing. This continues even after you've stopped sharing. Also happens to people viewing. Happens on MacOS client, haven't tried web/windows/mobile.

  8. Make copying a chat conversation easier

    At our company, 100% of its employees telecommute. This makes our preferred method of live communication to be chat. Sometimes we need to copy snippets of a conversation into a work order, and it is SO difficult to copy text from Teams. Sometimes a person's name won't even appear above their text, once pasted, and the information has to be recreated. Please test this for yourself - copy and paste a few lines of a conversation, and please fix this!!!! Thanks!

    Compared to WhatsApp, the GUI is cumbersome and difficult to navigate. Notifications are hit and miss. Even if this is user error driven, it is something that could be refined.

  10. Teams desktop app is incredibly slow to start up

    I notice this particularly because I have to restart Teams a lot due to its poor handling of network changes/intermittent disconnection.

    Here's a scenario:

    - I need to quickly post a message to someone on Teams
    - Teams won't post it because it's disconnected and won't reconnect
    - I quit Teams
    - I restart Teams, and then I wait for a minute or two before I can post a message (not an exaggeration)

    Like most people on here, I'M BUSY, so I don't have the time for all this messing around. Teams needs to be faster, more reliable, and of…

  12. reduce voice message file sizes

    please reduce recorded voice message file sizes.
    It's bit-rate was 195kb/s in a sample I downloaded! This is studio record quality, not a simple voice record!!!!!!!

  13. teams.exe Malware exclusion documentation

    Would be good with an official statement/documentation on how teams.exe should be handled from a client malware perspective. Should the process be excluded or not from Scannig/IPS systems.

  14. Park Feature / Transfer Direct to Voicemail / Connection Issues

    1) I answer a lot of calls and rely on the Park feature from our Skype system to be able to Park and then notify employees they have a call waiting. TEAMS does not seem to offer this yet. Would make our work lives easier if could come up with this option.

    2) Same goes for being able to transfer calls directly to voicemail. No reason to just transfer to someone extension when I know a) they are not in or b) not going to answer due to meeting, et. It's annoying to hear the phone ring all the time…

  15. Automatisk opstart = automatisk irritation

    Lad være med at starte Teams automatisk ved opstart - det medvirker til stor irritation overfor såvel Teams som Microsoft i det hele taget.

  16. MSFT needs a UI for .net core, why didn't you use this as an exercise...

    ...for that instead of making another %^%&*^ poorly performing electron app.

    You had other choices for app tech (WPF), and this is a windows only program. Electron makes no sense as a choice, and now we all must suffer from it.

  17. memory leaks

    MS Teams eats 270-290mb at start vs 20-40mb for Telegram?
    Why does it takes so much memory and the result so slow perfomance concerning to modern messengers?

  18. Teams is super slow to switch channels (>5 to 10 secs)

    Make the fat application for teams more responsive as currently it is painful to quickly switch between channels or chat ( takes easy more than 10 seconds for an operations that should take way less than a 1 sec)

  20. Improve the search functions - try the WeChat and you will know.

    Super search as WeChat instead of “Files/message...).
