  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.

    As we announced at Microsoft Ignite 2019 this morning, we are excited to confirm that Multi-window capabilities are coming to Microsoft Teams, and will start rolling out to the public ring early next year!

    Thanks,
    Alex & the Teams team

  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…

    This feature is still being reviewed by the feature team. No decision has been made yet. I’ll keep you posted.

  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.

  6. 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…

    This feature request is now in the planning stage. As more details become available, I will post them here.

  7. 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.

  8. Make Planner (and other apps) sticky to the sidebar.

    I do a lot of work across teams and I want to click into Planner just like Chat or Activity to easily see all tasks across teams. Sortable by priority/due date pls.

    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!

    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”.

    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.

    We will not be doing this request at this time, due to other high priority engineering that the product needs. But we really appreciate the feedback and are listening to every one that you submit in this forum. Thank you!

  16. Customize Applications within Sidebar (Drag-and-Drop)

    I'd like the ability to have full control over how the sidebar is organized. Currently, you have to click the 3 ellipses to view any connected apps as well as access them. Maybe have the list scrollable or drag-and-drop the applications into any order and snap into place. Maybe integrate the ability to unlock and lock the sidebar view so you don't accidentally reorganize the app list unintentionally.
