  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.

      • 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…

        • Multi-window for chats and more

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

          • 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.

              This item is still on the backlog.

              No additional details to provide, but the team does understand this is a big need from the community.

              I’m working on getting more information and possibly an ETA. I’ll keep you posted.

              -Warren

              • 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 ?

                • Right To Left Support

                  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!

                  • 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.

                    • URL shortener for Teams

                      When using the "get link" option in teams it would be better to have an embedded link shortener. Pasting the link in email looks terrible.

                        • Screen Space

                          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.

                              • Screen share toolbar obstructing browser tabs

                                Issue:
                                The MS Teams screen share toolbar obstructs browser tabs in Chrome and Edge. The toolbar does auto-collapse but takes too long (approx. 5 seconds). Skype for Business' toolbar collapses almost immediately. Also the MS Teams toolbar cannot be moved as the Skype for Business one can.

                                Workaround:
                                Clicking the pin icon on the toolbar twice collapses it immediately but it reappears when you move the cursor near the top of the screen again

                                Preferred Solution:
                                Make the toolbar collapse immediately when unpinned and make it possible to move it

                                    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”

                                    -Warren

                                  • 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.
