  1. Improve reply to channel and reply to thread usability

    People accidentally reply to channel when they should be replying to a thread. This makes the channel a mess. Improve the usability aspect of this making it more intuitive to reply to the thread one is reading right now!

  2. Combine multiple threads - or at least improve the UI

    People who are new to Teams almost reliably start new conversations instead of adding to threads. In other words, the context goes missing - which is one of the key elements that make Teams so powerful.

    Multiple requests to combine threads have been declined here. I can only imagine that technical reasons are the source of the declines, because many people and organizations are dealing with this issue.

    Therefore I'm repeating the request - and if the decision "at this point" is still the same, then please put some effort into the UI to make it clear (!!!) to people…

  3. Be able to move people's videos to top instead of bottom of screen (when someone is screen sharing a presentation)

    When in a group meeting, everyone's video screen appears at the bottom when someone is presenting their screen. It would be nice to be able to drag it to the top of the window instead. That's also where the webcam usually sits so it's better to be looking more directly into the camera (instead of halfway down the screen)

  4. When in a teams meeting - I would like to see both participants and chat at the same time

    When in a teams meeting - I would like to see both participants and chat at the same time. Right now - its one or the other. in Skype for Business meetings - that was not the case, we could see chat and participants in one view

  5. Upload your own company branding into Teams background effects.

    It would be great to be able to upload company branding to the new background effects so users can choose an effect that has their company's branding on and it would be available across the organisation.

  6. Additional Streaming Layouts for Team Live Events

    currently you can choose between two streaming layouts (e.g. full screen or screen beside cam).
    There would be so many cool other layout options to improve live events e.g.:
    - Two speaker side by side (split screen)
    - presentation on the left but two speaker on the right
    - 4 speaker on screen
    - large cam, small screen sharing content

    Whatever the ideas are endless, but currently this is really limiting some streaming experience, for example if you have two speakers debating something I want to show both, but I can't.

  7. Open Chat windows separately

    Open Chat windows separately. This is very poor implementation of chat in MS TEAMS, as all proper communication tools that exist in the market have this feature. It allows for multiple chats to be viewed simultaneously. When is MS TEAMS dev team going to fix this glaring gap?

  8. Multiple accounts on desktop app

    Tems should have the option "add account" on desktop app. We need to have multiple accounts without loggin out.

  9. It's Microsoft Windows - so, could we have multiple windows?

    Please? It can't be hard to have multiple windows, since it's possible to access the same Teams account from multiple computers at the same time.

  10. 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.

  12. mutli teams window

    There has been talk of the ability to have multi window functionality. being able to have multiple teams chat windows open will help espeically when you are locked into a single screen share and then have to repeatedly navigate to the chat bar to have side conversations and click back in. currently very ineffeicient.

  13. possibility to open teams on Multiple windows (especially when using multiple screens)

    Hi team,

    As a Ms teams professional user (especially if using multiple screens), i'd like to have the possibility to open different features on different windows so i can multitask simple way using the ALT+TAB feature for example.

    Ex:
    1. Chatting with a colleague and need to copy/past an information from another chat without losing the focus on the conversation
    2. i am on a meeting, and i want to let it open on a different screen and open a chat (or simply the calendar view to see next meetings)
    3... etc etc...

  14. Please improve the user experience when having to accept updates to the Terms of Use policies

    We recently made an update to our Teams ToU policies. We tested the update with a small group of users and the experience was very confusing. If a user had Teams open when we made the change, they did not notice the very small gray message bar at the top of the client that informed them of the need to accept the update. Many users thought Teams was just not working properly and missed several messages that were sent to them. Please make this banner more noticeable and make the scrolling within the terms more usable. It is very difficult…

  15. Video gallery options

    When using Skype for Business, participants were able to choose between "gallery view" or having in full-screen the participan that is talking at each moment

    I'm not able to find that option in Teams, only gallery view or pinning manually one of the video signals as main and full-screen.

    is this planned?

  16. Join a meeting with video using a custom background

    We need Teams to have an option when joining a meeting with video to select the background or blur.

    Currently, we need to join the meeting with video off, then start video with a custom background or blur.

  17. Make mute button visible at top of window so it's always available.

    I wish the mute button was always visible so I can see at a glance whether I'm muted or not. This also makes it easier to mute/unmute myself instead of having to make that on-screen bar appear.

  18. Disable screen capture

    Prohibit attendees from taking print screens / screen grabs of what is being presented in Microsoft Teams (similar to how you can't take a screen shot of a rights protected email - the screen goes black).

  19. Video Feed when Presenting Desktop

    When somebody else presents their desktop, I see a strip along the bottom of the screen with participant video feeds, along with my own feed of what others see from me. This is an ideal user experience.

    However, when I am presenting my desktop to others, this strip at bottom of screen goes away and I only see video of last person who spoke or is speaking. As a public speaker, I am used to seeing non-verbal cues from my audience while I speak and I lose this personal connection without this window.

    Please add an option to show video…
