  1. 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"

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Less steps to open chats would be nice.

  7. Hovering over the Teams area button (left) should show quick Team list quick access while in Chat etc

    When you hover over the left Teams button I should be able to see a list of teams in a small slide out panel to the left without lets say leaving the Chat area which I'm in at the moment. And also be able to click on another channel or team in that quick slide teams menu (when for example in Chat section.). Similar sort of hover quick menu should appear for corresponding Meetings and Files buttons for quick navigation. This should have bene done from the beginning - not sure why it was missed. Attached example of this quick…

  9. APP Client improvement for both IOS and Android

    In IOS, when sharing the PPT from SfB client, the video can not be moved and something from PPT is covered, not friendly as the Windows Client that we can move the video.
    This happens for both IOS and Android Client, hope to improve asap.

  11. Needs an "all logged-in users" view

    Without an "all logged-in users" view, you don't know who is logged in in your company. Not everyone works 100% within their little team compartment; in reality, most people are cross-functional. It becomes a difficult juggling act to go between all your teams to see who's available.

    Just add the good old standard "buddy list" idea from legacy applications; hide it behind an icon if you need to, but this loss of functionality is an unnecessary and artificial handicap in helping users adjust to this priduct.

  12. Teams needs a light UI or customizable interface which is less boxy.

    Think google hangouts desktop application's light UI. the entire UI is just horrible

  13. My Team- with my apps

    It seems to me with the SFB integration etc that you want teams to be an interface into O365.

    What I would love to see is:
    MY TEAM
    So this is a team that is mine- like Onedrive is mine. Always on the top of the side bar. Not one that is shared- and in fact the FILES tab should be Onedrive. This way I can have a portal of sorts- I can add tabs like My Calendar or My Planner, My OneNote- Or MY To-Do (from MS To-Do).

    This would tie it all together- My Skype, My Phone, The…

  14. Change shortcut for "go to search/command"

    Currently the shortcut for jumping to the command bar is ALT+E I think it would be better to use the same one as webrowsers ALT+D instead. It's easier for users with consistent shortcuts (ALT+E normally opens a menu).

    An even better solution would of course be custom shortcuts but I assume a change could be faster (and improving the defaults would be a good idea either way) https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/33625345-change-keyboard-shortcut

  15. Wiki list layout

    In Teams, click Wiki, then the link to list all pages. A column pops out, listing all the pages.

    The background color of this column is the same as the border around the text of a wiki page. And it has no border. Therefore, it looks like the page is glitched.

    Solution: Add a thin border around the wiki page list when it pops out.

  16. Can’t leave a team on iOS from manage teams menu

    Can leave a team if it is favourited but not if it is not. This doesn’t make sense as one that I want to leave is more likely to not be favourited.

  18. UI Stutter

    While typing a notification seems to lock up the UI. After that it puts the cursor at the beginning of the chat input field and inserts whatever I was typing while the notification locked up the UI. PLEASE FIX THIS!

  19. Enable uninstalling One Noted directly, from the Send Note window

    I had to waste more than an hour to make Office technician remove One Note from my PC. It would be better if I could do it directly, from the place where it bothers me.
