  1. Multi-window for chats and more

    I want to have separate top-level windows for each person I'm chatting with, rather than tabs.

    Multi-window chat is in testing. I hope to have great news regarding rollout to the public rings soon.

    We are working to ensure that multi-window and other future multi-window experiences are of the highest quality when they release.

    Thanks!

  2. Compact mode

    I really like Teams. I do. But the current chat layout is not suited for professional chats. It's way to space consuming. It looks like something imported from MSN with smiley's that take half of the screen. I would say that Slack have nailed it because they focused on the ability keeping a tight window with lots of chat text visible. In Teams the window is full and starts scrolling after like 10 sentences.

  3. Make "Teams" and "Chat" the same Tab

    There is no reason that Teams and Chat should be different top level categories in the left navigation. They are the same thing, perform exactly the same function, and making two different items simply confuses the navigation and makes badge notifications and discoverability much more difficult to use.

    Please combine Chats into the Teams tab so that you can browse all conversations in one place rather than needing to navigate to different tabs to see different conversations.

    Chats and channels perform essentially the same function, which is talk to some people and collaborate. Forcing the user to check two different…

  4. Use same date and time format as in my computer's settings

    Many people like to use English as their display language, but get confused with the US date format: 11/06 is October 6 in the US, but June 11 in many other countries. Why not display the date according to the setting in Windows?

    Same goes for time, of course, where many use 24 hour format instead of am and pm.

  5. Customize Sidebar

    I would really like the ability to choose which apps go in the sidebar. It just makes sense.

  6. Relax browser support check

    The current browser support check is too pessimistic and prevents some modern browsers from loading Microsoft Teams. For example, up-to-date Chrome on Ubuntu Linux is not considered a supported browser, even though changing the User-Agent string to Chrome on Windows allows Teams to load without any problems.

    Please consider a) just letting the browser try to load Teams, b) using feature detection instead of the User-Agent string, or c) blacklisting known broken browsers instead of whitelisting if the User-Agent string is used.

    I apologize, there had been come miscommunication with regards to this topic.

    The good news is that this item has not been declined! It has actually been approved by the feature team and is now “On the Backlog”.

    I’ll keep this thread updated as we move through the development.

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    Hi everyone — we have implemented this on the web version.

    We will not be implementing it in the desktop app or mobile app due to other high priority engineering items.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

  9. Resizing Issues!

    We would like to see better resizing across the app.

    For example:

    Resizing chat windows
    Resizing channel width
    Resizable Teams menu
    Logo resizing
    Make columns resizable in Files tab
    Desktop app resizing to be mobile responsive
    Use 100% of resizable width
    Automatic resizing of PDFs
    Ability to resize the pane where search and favorites are show

    This is currently in Preview – planned to release very soon.

    In the following weeks, Teams will be rolling out support on Safari 11+ on macOS. While in preview, there are known issues with Safari’s ITP mode and it is advised that users disable Safari’s Intelligent Tracking Prevention.

  11. functionality to send email to all members in team

    Can we add functionality to send email to whole team at once. I am not sure if it is already there.

  13. Change the colour of Teams, the default purple is deterring everyone from even trying it, and refusing to move from Slack

  14. Make Subject line visible by default on new conversations

    When starting a NEW conversation in a Channel, the subject line should be displayed by default and not hidden underneath the rich text expand button. Subject lines are very useful not only to let people know what that conversation is about, but also for searching later to return to the conversation after it has scrolled away some. We've enforced this on a few times internally using the honor system and have seen considerable success with keeping conversations on topic and getting people using the threading features.

    You wouldn't send an email without a Subject would you? Why should Teams be…

  15. Create a separate chat window in Teams

    Instead of having to select the Chat category within teams and using the large teams screen, I would like to have a separate chat window as well as Chat Icon at the bottom toolbar.

  16. Place Saved Conversations Top Left Navigation

    "Saved" conversations should appear under "Activity" or somewhere else in the left bar navigation as shown in the screenshot below.

  18. Separate Individual chats from Meeting chats

    One of the biggest issues I have with Teams is individual chats getting lost among the meeting chats. Many of the meetings are things we get pulled into that I don't care about to start with. Manually having to hide 5-10 of these a day is tedious. When I'm on the Chat tab, I'd like to see individual chats. When I'm on the Meetings tab, I would expect to see Meeting chats. If nothing else, maybe a dropdown filter to choose which chats to show on the Chat tab would suffice.

  19. Allow @mention myself in a conversation.

    When I am the note taker for a meeting, I use @mention for action items. When the action item is for me, I would like it in the notes and I would like to @mention myself (would show up in Activity).

  20. Usage of Teams once, breaks ability to use Skype

    Dear Admins, please get on the same page as your design teams and support staff, they’re giving users contradicting information.

    I just had a conversation with Microsoft Support about the ability for a Skype user to talk to a Teams user…basically at this time there is no such thing as interoperability despite their documentation regarding coexistence modes.

    The very minute a user even tries Teams just once…they break the ability to use Skype to talk to you if you’re using Teams. Apparently it’s been in this broken state for months and is “by design.”

    Here’s the quote from the rep,…
