  1. In Dark theme make the Display Name a different color than message text

    Message text should be easily distinguishable from the Display Name. Right now they're the same colour.

  2. Loss of keyboard focus in Excel Online on switch to another window and back

    I have an Excel file open in Excel Online in MS Teams. I am editing the file - I can use the keyboard to enter text and navigate. I switch to another window. When I come back to the file in Excel Online in MS Teams, the keyboard does not work. I have to click or tap on the screen in order to be able to use the keyboard again.

    I do not want to click/tap. Please keep/restore the focus.

  3. Feed navigation

    When reading feeds, it’s (1) select message, (2) go back, (3) repeat for next message. In addition, I want (1) select message, (2) swipe for next message, which is Apple News-style.

  4. Allow split viewing of channels and "My Tasks" in Planner.

    Most screens are big enough to allow a conversation thread, and "my tasks" to be viewable at the same time.

    In addition, would be good for newly assigned tasks to appear in the "Activity" feed.

  6. add a small/short animation when likes are added to a post/reply

    create a small animation for adding new likes to a post or a reply (perhaps only when the post is visible?).

    this would be especially useful in chat sessions where i wouldnt want an additional popup or activity feed item to notify me that the last line i added got a like.
    however, the same could also be useful for Channel Conversations.

  13. improve chat action/detail

    move the "like" and "bookmark" actions into a side panel.

    require the user to click/select a message that would bring up a side panel with the chat detail/information (date, time, etc) and include the "like" and "bookmark" actions there.

    additional features could be added like comments/notes, tagging or other context-relative features like url preview.

  14. Provide more design possibilitys for Teams

    Teams now appears in Pink, Violet, Darkviolet....

    that might be a decision somebody made a long time ago, but it does not match my taste. For I have only three default possibilities.

    my wish would be more default choices of Designs an/or open CSS File to let Users do Desings by them self.

  16. UI Improvements

    The separation from individual chats and team chats is frustrating.

    The indicator with recent (unread chats) is very tough to identify. It would be ideal if you can actually highlight the unread (individual) chats, rather than just marking them as "Bold"

  18. After you pick a chat or channel, hide the left nav bar.

    After I click on a channel, the menu stays up. I don't ever want to immediately switch to a new channel, I want to be able to see messages. The pop up menu hides the messages, and I have to click on the messages area to hide the menu after I've navigated there.

  19. Name / People / Contacts list that doesn't involve typing to start searching

    The ability to choose from a list of people and their titles. doesn't need to be always there but something you can enable.
    When starting a chat or group chat it's good to have a list to browse to make sure you've included all parties. typing it out takes your mind away from the task at hand.
    Also for those who are new and do not know how to spell a name correctly can be problematic.
    Directories are always a feature that should be included.

  20. Show reply link on hover instead of all the time.

    Instead of showing the "Reply" link at the bottom of every message, the link would only appear when hovering... like Slack's thread feature.
