  1. Filter chats button in mobile

    When you are in mobile you don't have the option in Chat to filter as you do in desktop for unread, group, etc. Useful when you have a lot of chats.

  3. Make black system navigation bar controllable by user. No sudden fade in/out.

    In MS Teams during presentations, the black system navigation bar often covers part of the presentation. This is very undesirable for screenshots and also leaves a feeling of lack of control for the user.
    I recommend to not have things float in and out or suddenly appear or disappear without user input, or at least give the user the option to opt out of this very annoying behavior.
    When using MS Teams at work (10k+ corporation) this is by far the most annoying nuisance.
    Thanks for fixing.

  4. Email Response via Teams Chat to Decrease Email Use

    TLDR: To reduce emails we need a way to appropriately respond to emails via chat. Chat should indicate response is related to email using subject line indicator e.g. "Response to email: [subject line] - [chat answer]" followed by continued chat

    There is an option to reply to an email via Teams chat from the email sender. Previously this option worked through Skype and when selected and a chat window with that individual wasn't already open, a new window opened and indicated in some way that the skype chat was responding to the email (perhaps indicating the email subject line?).

    Unfortunately…

  5. Enable search in drop downs

    Currently, users have to scroll through the entire drop down as they can't shrink the drop down based on their input.

    Enabling search within a drop down will help users finding and selecting their drop down choice- much quicker!

  6. chat left/right alignment--or at least compact width

    There is a lot of chatter about how much people hate the left/right alignment of the chat messages. I don't mind that so much, but at the very least, you should be able to resize the window and have the spacing between the left and right columns shrink accordingly. The current layout takes up too much screen real estate.

  7. Teams and channel navigation could be improved

    We have many Teams in our organisation and as such we apply our notifications to Teams and channels accordingly and work off our "Activity" tab.
    When a post appears in the "activity" tab you click it and get taken to the correct channel. However, there is no way back from this screen (Activity feed on left, ruight hand panel = channel conversations) to the main Team/General channel/Team list of channels.

    You have to click "Teams" in the tabbed interface, find the team and then click into the other channels.

    Previously you could breadcrumb to the Team, from the channel's conversation:…

  8. Pop out chats should flash in taskbar when new messages arrive for those chats.

    When popping out chats, they show up on taskbar, and should flash when new messages come.

  9. Improve macOS Support


    1. Notifications should come through the normal macOS Notifications system.


    2. Emoji should use native macOS emoji.

  10. Add company name to the display name of all users.

    We would like to have an extended display name for all users.

    Right now only the AD field "Display Name" is shown.

    We would like to have the following shown:

      Display Name (Company Name)
    

    This will be helpful, if users from different companies (we have about 70 in our tenant) will reach out by chat or call. In addition customers also can directly see which company is calling.

  11. Pop out any section of Teams

    Have parts of MS teams be able to pop out of Teams. This way you can work on one part of teams and you could have multiple chats going at the same time. This would be very much like being able to pop out emails from outlook and then go to tasks or calendar and be able to see everything at the same time.

  12. We hope that Microsoft Teams browser version can have the exact same features as the application version

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams の ブラウザー版へ、アプリケーション版と全く同等の機能の実装を希望
    We hope that the browser version of Microsoft Teams can have the exact same features as the application version


    ■Description(内容):
    移動ユーザー プロファイルを利用環境下では、各ユーザーでアプリケーションをインストールをする必要がなく Microsoft Teams を利用することが可能になる Microsoft Teams ブラウザー版を利用することで、サーバーの記憶域をより最適化して使うことができます。
    しかしながら現在の Microsoft Teams ブラウザー版では、アプリケーション版では利用可能な "デバイスから通信等のテスト" や "制御を渡す" など一部機能が実装されていません。
    このため、ブラウザー版 Microsoft Teams でアプリケーション版と全く同じ機能が利用できるよう、機能の拡充を希望します。​
    In environments that use roaming user profiles, there is no need to each user to install the application, and Microsoft Teams can be used by using the browser version of Microsoft Teams which optimizes the storage space of the server in a more effective way.
    However currently some features in the application…

  13. always on top

    There should be a "pinning" option for pop-out windows: I would like to click on a button, the window should be on top always. That should be an option! Not all windows should be on top automatically!

  14. Move "start a new conversation" to top

    Many users make a mistake: instead of answering a thread they start a new conversation.

    Please, move the edit box "start a new conversation" to top and leave the replay to thread on the bottom.

    An alternative is to change color from "start" and "answer" or making the "start a new conversation" different in any manner.

  15. The user experience is really terrible!!!

    The user experience is really terrible!!! It needs to be revised thoroughly to provide users more smooth user friendly experience.You can't imagine how much I get lost each time I open Microsoft Teams and how much time and effort I waste to figure out how to make a call, group or even to add someone to a call.

  16. Contact Tile size in Calls section should be reduced

    The Speed Dial section allows you to pin Contacts in different groups, which is great.

    But the size of the individual tiles is way too large. I am not running Teams in full screen mode unless someone is presenting. I need a really small but comprehensive list of my favourite contacts - like we used to have in LiveMeeting (and like we used to have in Circuit).

    Please allow a smaller display of these tiles. Name and icon are sufficient for this purpose.

    And please consider the increasing tendency to run such apps on a smartphone - even less screen…

  17. Show when you are broadcasting audio

    Basically have your icon show up the same way as others do when they are speaking, when you are speaking, to give you some visual feedback that you are broadcasting audio.

    I think this will reduce a lot of "Can you hear me?"s and people with open mics braodcasing background noise.

  20. Allow option to have teams chat function to pop-out from teams and work like skype.

    Teams chat should have a 'Function like Skype for Business' option :

    All chats in their own window.
    Contacts windows separate from the main Teams window
    Task bar icon changes color when new chat available.
    Any other interface/workflow feature that Skype for Business has that Teams does not.

    Breaking UX/workflows because 'reasons' is not an 'evolutionary' change. It's 'revolutionary' which is a huge design no-no for non-new projects. While Teams is 'new', you are deprecating Skype for Business, so Teams is really Skype v.New.
