  1. Add the option to disable message previews in the Favorites and Recent IM windows.

    In the Chat tab, my boss complains that he can't open Teams while in screen sharing applications (such as WebEx) because if he does then the last thing said to each of his contacts is visible and may compromise confidential info. He'd like the option to turn off the preview and only show the names of the people without any message preview.

  2. 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!

  4. Multiple tabs / windows to view different Teams / channels in teams at same time or quickly without needing to leave one for the other .

    Multiple tabs / windows to view different Teams / channels in teams at same time or quickly without needing to leave one for the other .

    Aka the ability to work on two channels at the same time or at least navigate between two channels, even channels from different teams easily, without having to go through all the navigation? Would make working more efficient and should be easy to set a sort of active.

    Also better ways to group categories out with Favourites might also help, if could do it with Channels and Teams, not just Team level.

    Thanks

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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

  11. 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.

  12. 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 💔.

  13. 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.

  14. Add a shortkey to jump to unread messages

    Slack has the all-round shortkey Ctrl+K, which allows me to jump to any chat (group/channel/person). It automatically lists channels/chats with unread messages at the top. So jumping through unread chats is just 2 clicks each, without using the mouse. I'd love to have the same feature in Teams!

  15. 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.

  16. Add a functionality enabling to merge / split Teams Group

    Organizations evolve and teams or projects split or merge. A functionality enabling splitting or merging Teams Group (and thus retrieving easily Files, OneNotes, etc...) would stick to "real life"

  17. Improve save icon to not block text in the chat

    Currently, the save icon appears in the upper right corner of the chat bubble to allow you to save the chat, but for short conversations, this icon blocks the text. This is especially problematic when you try to copy text from the conversation and the icon blocks it. The moment you hover over the text you need in that corner, the icon shows up and there's no way of getting to the text.

  18. 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

  19. Don't Close Call when Teams window Closed

    This happens to me about 5 times a day. Literally. I'm chatting to someone and they close the window to find another one and the call ends.

    In Skype, closing the Window doesn't end the call.

    On iOS, closing the Window doesn't end the call.

    Why does it end the call on Windows?

  20. Allow thumbprint view of images in files section

    Allow view changes just like in Windows for files. For instance, detail, small thumbnails, medium thumbnails, large thumbnails, etc.
