  2. Join started/ongoing meeting immediately!

    I constantly jump from one meeting to another. I need a QUICK way to do that.

    "Join ongoing meeting(s)" button (if 1) / drop-down (if 2+) next to Search Bar on top, visible from any section

  3. Resize Contacts part of the team window Independent of the Chat part

    I see many suggestions about resizing the window, but the thing I don't see is allowing user to resize the chat/contact portion independently of the converstation part of the window. Right now I size the window down because it takes too much space, but the contacts go away when I want the chat portion of the window to be minimized.

  6. Screen Sharing Meeting Controls Should Auto-hide or minimize

    On Screen Sharing Meeting Controls Should Auto-hide or minimize.
    The current setup shows the incoming video of the presenter and the Meeting control hover over the presenters screen share causing some data to be covered by the controls.

  7. Modify Live Video Screen

    While in a live chat today, I noticed that the "Need Help?" button was just left of the "Leave" link box. Reading it literally, I read in my mind, "If you need help, Leave." I know this is unintentional. I just wanted to share my thought.

  8. Control Shift C

    Please change the start a call keyboard shortcut. I frequently start calls on accident when attempting to do a control-shift-v for format-free pasting into a chat. Control+Shift+C is a really easy key to hit by mistake when doing this task.

  9. Celebration button to give praise during a meeting while everyone is on mute

    The same way we can raise hands to talk, a clapping emote (or a sound) could be played to celebrate good deeds during meetings where most are on Mute and nobody really wants to stand out as the first person to unmute and go « good job » then you awkwardly have 10 others doing the same.

  10. date and time DD/MM/YY

    Date and Time
    If you are struggling with date and time display in MM/DD/YY format and want it in the usual DD/MM/YY here's what you can do:
    1] top right, click your initial or photo
    2] choose "settings"
    3] select "general"
    4] in language, select "app language" and choose "English (United Kingdom)"
    5] Sadly if you choose "English (Ireland)" you get MM/DD/YY

    Microsoft, this is specially tone deaf.

  11. To stop people talking while on mute

    When you are on mute and the microphone detects you speaking, a notification should appear in the middle of the screen.

    No problem if you want to be muted - just reminds you.

    If you don't want to be muted it may save a bit of embarrasment.

  14. Show the microphone mute state in the local user thumbnail.

    The video and avatar thumbnails show microphone mute state for other users. It should display for yourself as well. Attached image shows me muted in the controls, but my video thumbnail shows me as not muted.

  15. Channel, with user group > Sub-channels, sub-user group

    As a user, I want to select a set of people from the primary channel and provide only them access rights into the sub-channel.

    Context
    I have Company X and I create a channel X. Under this company I could have Divisions e.g. Management, Finance, Engineering, Marketing, Sales, etc.

    Those divisions are categorized as sub-channels. Sub-channels
    are the divisions of the same company. For instance, when the sub-channel is defined as Sales, there could be 31/500 Account Managers from the full user group defined in the primary channel (Company X). Because specific topics and knowledge can sometimes be dedicated to…

  16. Personal Dashboard/Landing Page

    Teams is painful to navigate if you have lots of teams and lots of chats.

    Pinning Teams and chats is useless if you still have to scroll to see everything. And having to use search every time is also a poor user experience.

    My Personal Dashboard or Landing page would allow me to pin any Teams "object" - Team, Channel, Chat, Files, Bots, Calls, Meetings, etc.

    It would replace the list/chat columns with a single screen and I could choose between tile and list view.

    I should also be able to drag and drop to update the order but also…

  17. Assingments need to show all Assignments from all teams

    This is useful for students who may be in a lot of classroom teams and will be missing assignments due to the fact that going into all the teams individually and viewing assignments or using the assignments tab to veiw each teams assignments individually is ineffient, time-consuming and extremely frustrating at best.

  18. COMPLETELY REBUILD THIS PEWP💩

    C’mon Microsoft. Wtf? I honestly feel like teams is pewp. I liked Skype better even tho it crashed all the time. I and many other users find myself sending messages to the wrong people when clicking on the notification. The add contact function is MADDENING at best. No way to sort users by First, Last, Status. Fix this 💩. It’s absolute junk. 👎🤦🏻‍♂️

  19. Adjust Position of Webcams on Screen

    Move web cam feeds around when someone is screen sharing. My webcam is at the top of my monitor, when others talk I have to look down at their picture at the bottom, meaning they see the top of my head not my eyes. Would be nice to position top, bottom or the side by choice.

  20. Contact groups created are by default expanding, Ideally it should collapse the groups.

    Under Contacts section - When we create multiple groups and add people to those groups, all the groups are expanding by default when we refresh Teams app. Ideally it should be in collapse mode. (ie., It should show only groups names instead of showing group members also. If user want to expand and see any group, he should do that. but not the teams app by default. it's very irritating all times to shrink the groups.
