  1. Add ability to separate call/meeting into new window

    If all our team communications are in the same app as our Wiki and Notes, we really need to be able to have calls and meetings pop out in a separate window so that we can keep the call visible (e.g. full-screen on a secondary monitor) while still accessing our notes and conversations.

  2. Need ability to sort team members by FIRST name, not last.

    Please allow us, when viewing members of a team, to sort the list of team members using FIRST NAME as the sort criteria, rather than last name.

    Attached a screenshot of the view I'm referring to. I don't know everyone's last names right off the top of my head. It's very confusing trying to make heads or tails of this list when sorted by last name.

  3. Chat messages must show up in Activity > feed

    I typically have the "Activity" tab open so I can quickly glance at the barrage of messages exchanged throughout the workday, and peruse the ones that I want in detail by clicking on a message in the Feed. However, chats do not show up in this feed, requiring me to go over to the "Chat" tab instead. It would be nice for all messages to show up in Activity/Feed.

  4. 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.

  5. Make it like Slack. Don’t buy Slack though.

    Teams is mostly pretty lame. Slack is way better. Just make it like Slack. But don’t buy Slack, y’all would probably ruin or kill it like you did the Sunrise calendar app 💔.

  6. Open a thread, replying... too confusing.

    current typing design in team(group) chat has two function;

    1.open thread
    2. reply to a tread

    currently it is too confusing if someone is to start a chat.
    So my team members make mistake in this way very frequently;

    Open a thread, enter
    Then open another thread, enter(even if they wanted to reply to the thread that they have just opened)

    Eventually, rather than having one thread and one reply to add comment, we have two separated thread..

    This happens a lot... I mean, almost everybody is confusing where they are typing.

    So, how about move typing focus to reply…

  8. 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.)

  9. Promote Checklist Item UI in Planner needs better feedback and Undo

    When you click the promote button on a checklist item in Planner, the item disappears with no indication of what happened. I've had users complain that items are being deleted.

    The item was properly promoted to its own task, but the UI does not give the user any indication of what happened.

    I've tested this on the OWA/Browser version of Planner and the Windows desktop version of Planner.

    Perhaps a fading message could be added. Or perhaps the checklist item could be left in the list for a moment, with a message about what happened and undo and dismiss buttons.

  10. "Sticky" one liner on top of channels, used for members out of office, latest build numbers, etc

    Customizable one liner on top of channels. This will help team members know who's out of office (unavailable) and/or latest build being released. Or, pizza in the conference room :)

  11. Improve UI for threaded conversations

    I think that the threaded conversation view has a fundamental UI problem.

    At present, the text control at the bottom of the view will start a new conversation, and replying to an existing conversation requires a specific action.

    We have been trained by pretty much every other chat program in the world that the box at the bottom of the screen is for typing a reply to the current conversation. To change this behavior requires Teams users to un-learn a common behavior and re-learn it just for this program.

    Users spend most of their time using other programs. Conforming to…

  12. Cache recent messages

    In a chat or channel, scroll up a few pages - you will see that the messages are temporarily displayed as placeholders until they are fetched from the server.

    Now scroll down again. Your most recent messages are also shown as placeholders until fetched from the server, despite representing only a few kilobytes of data, if that.

    All messages should be cached locally for a decent amount of time, to increase interactivity. The time and size of the cache should have sensible defaults but be configurable by the user.

  13. 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!

  14. 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…

  16. Team grouping organization

    As we migrate all our regions and offices to Teams, we have started to realize that being able to identify Team's purpose adds some level of complexity.

    We are proposing to add to the UI a way to create "Groups" and not related Teams under its correspondent group.

    Just like we have Favorites, there would be other headings we can give names and move teams underneath of them.

    We believe this will avoid confusion, for both experienced users and novice users.

  17. CSS Themes

    Something that has not often been Microsoft's strong suit is a bit of a killer when it comes to teams:

    Please enable custom stylesheets for scripting the user interface layout. I'm unsure what UI engine Teams is built on but having the ability to create themes via CSS stylesheets would be a huge win.

    A successful solution would have:

    > A class reference for the UI elements on Teams
    > Full CSS3 support
    > Ability to Save/Import/Export and Share themes

  20. Ability to order the channels within a team...

    Unless I just can't find it:) The channels order by creation. Would love to be able to reorder them by dragging them.
