  1. Copy paste markdown text should do proper formatting

    Although markdown works as you type things in by hand, it should also format text that is pasted into Teams.

    We often have markdown docs or other existing assets that we're discussing, and being able to copy-paste markdown into Teams would help make that process a lot easier than retyping everything by hand!

    • Remove 'speech bubbles'; increase message density

      Teams UI is beautiful, but the message density is very low because of all the beautiful speech bubbles hogging my screen space. This is literally the only thing preventing my entire dev team moving to Teams from Slack; an option to toggle the visual display theme would be great!

        • Chat heads

          Can you make a chat head feature like what we have in Facebook? It would be easier to go back and forth with your chat messages while you are doing something on other areas of MS teams (i.e. channels).

          • Change text size

            Given today's high resolution monitors, the text is too small to read. give the user the ability to resize the text so they can actually read it.

              • contact information

                Give same contact card information as in Skype. Teams only gives an abbreviated version of the contact card. There is no way to get the full contact card. I need fax, mobile, etc...not just work #.

                • Can we have an option to get rid of the Store icon in Teams?

                  Yeah, I get it, Microsoft wants to sell ****.

                  In a corporate environment, though, I can't actually buy anything. Nor do I want anything except a collaboration app that isn't a pain **********. So the icon is just more clutter in what I feel is an already-cluttered interface.

                  (I'm sure there are free apps in the store; I just don't care.)

                    Can we add functionality to send email to whole team at once. I am not sure if it is already there.

                      • Efficiency: Focus in text fields and Keyboard Shortcuts

                        It is highly inefficient if i want to initiate a chat with a co worker.
                        What i have to do is:
                        1. Click in Search
                        2. Type name
                        3. Use Down Arrow (to Skip Search for ***) even if the Result matches
                        4. Click Or Enter to Select the user
                        5. Focus as of now remains in the Search
                        6. Click on Chat Text box to get focus.
                        Type.

                        All of this is required to do just one thing, Initiate a chat with a co-worker.

                        Slack has this tackled very very effectively
                        Ctrl + F and you can trigger a…

                          I would really like the ability to choose which apps go in the sidebar. It just makes sense.

                                • Task List

                                  I am interested in various views within a "Task List" that is within a Team & Channel. The current layout is nice, however as more tasks are added, each task takes up a fair amount of screen real estate and you have to scroll up and down or left and right quite a bit to see all of the buckets and associated tasks.

                                  Maybe an additional view similar to an 'outline view' where each main header is a 'Bucket' and the subitems under each bucket are the 'Tasks'?

                                  Keep up the great work!

                                  • more typing less clicking

                                    every function should have a keyboard shortcut and/or command trigger that can be typed. please don't make me click!

                                    one of the main strengths of competitive tools (like slack) is the ability to do everything without ever taking your hands off the keyboard.

                                    one example is giphy integration. i like that i can search for images - instead of just being surprised with something... but i don't want to stop typing to click, then resume typing to search, then stop typing to click an image, then resume typing to complete my message

                                    • Cannot cancel post edit

                                      After selecting "Edit" on a post you cannot cancel the edit even after quitting the app. (There's no "Cancel" option and "Esc" doesn't do anything.) You have to "Send" the non-edited post, which then shows the post as "Edited" even though it wasn't.

                                      • Log out & Quit buttons

                                        Guys, whole world (including your apps like Skype or Skype for Business) has Quit/Exit/Close button on the bottom of context menu, with Team I always end up with logging out instead of closing application. Very simple to change, very annoying if not changed.

                                        • Add OneNote and Planner icons to the left bar

                                          Please remove the ellipses in the left icon bar and make OneNote and Planner their own icons.
