  1. Please create a professional compact chat layout!

    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.

      • Multi-window for chats and more

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

        • 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…

          • 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.

              • Introduce the O365 App Launcher in the top left corner

                Since Teams is a part of Office 365 why is there no App Launcher aka 'The waffle"in the top left corner ?

                  I need to revise this status “Partially done”.

                  The O365 launcher is currently available on web version of Teams and NOT in the app. I am following up to confirm plans for the app and possible timelines.

                  I’ll update again as soon as I have additional info.

                  I hope that unlike every other Office product, we won't have to wait for years before decent Right to Left languages are supported.

                  Please add RTL by default!

                  • User customizable left navigation

                    The far left navigation panel seems to have a whole lot of blank space just calling out to be filled with things, and there is plenty of functionality within Teams that could be put there so users could reach it faster. That big gap between Files and Feedback is wasted space!

                    You should let individual users decide what goes in this space by giving them the ability to pin additional things they want there. I use the 'Saved' functionality a lot for example. It would be nice to have it out there only one click away. Perhaps I think a…

                    • Use cmd instead of alt/option for shortcuts (was @ in Mac application)

                      Did you noticed that using a Mac, when you try to write an @ doesn't work?It seems that ALT + 2 works as a shortcut and opens the chat window.

                          Don't restrict the width of the screen space for channel conversations, if my monitor is wide enough, adjust the display to fill up all the available space.

                          • Ability to specify different colors for different teams

                            During testing of Teams app we found that users are quite often confused in regards to which team they are posting (specifically when they post to 'general' channel) - I think ability to assign different colors for different teams (by the owners/admins) would be helpful and could help to reduce amount of mistakes.

                                    Feature team thanks you for the feedback but it isn’t truly actionable.

                                    More concrete suggestions are recommended such as, “Please create a more compact chat layout” or “Increase density of the UI text elements”

                                    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,…

                                    • Automatically place the pointer to chat/text input

                                      Whenever I receive a notification and I click on it with the mouse, I then have to click a second time in the chat box before I can start typing. From usability perspective this is very annoying. Whenever you receive a notification from someone, and click on the notification bubble, you should be able to directly start responding to this person.

                                        • Allow rearranging contacts and groups

                                          The new contact list is now live but it's missing the ability to rearrange contacts and groups by drag and drop like you can now do with teams and recent conversations.

                                          I have quite a few contacts and large groups so sorting them would be very useful.
