  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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"

  5. support a more "dense" layout

    There is lots of whitespace (at least in the browser app) leading to lots of scrolling. Would be nice if there would be a more compressed layout

  6. left justification of conversation feed

    The main conversations view has everything center justified. Makes it hard to read. Slack does a great job of making the core conversation UX compact, readable and scannable.

  7. Split Screens, Multitasking

    It could be interesting to review the user interface to allow slit screens for different part of the application.
    For example, having part of the UI displaying the chat window, another part allowing to go into a "channel discussion" while in the main snippet, looking at a document. Anything that could make multitasking easier.
    A little like you are doing for the video conference (when minimized while working on the app), but more at large for all functionalities.

  8. We need the ability to work offline

    Maybe in other areas of the world this is not such a big issue, but in South Africa this is a major issue. If you are in the airplane you are unable to access anything in teams, or if you are in area with weak or no internet connectivity. This make this functionality very much impractical to use.

  9. Remove the Activity feed

    The Activity feed seems redundant and unnecessary, leading to confusion. Instead, just show an icon on the tab that there is activity on, and give a clear path of icons showing where the notification is.

  10. Add an option to collapse the sidebar to get a full page view of the chat window

    Add a way to collapse and expand the user list on the side to focus on one conversation (or any ui settings beyond themes)

  11. Remove recommended users

    I always see the same recommended users, with no way of hitting a x to remove them. One of those users left our company years ago for example.
    Now there's no way to say 'no thanks, I don't want / need to add this user to my list'. It just keeps showing up.

  12. 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.

  13. Short Links - like OneNote links

    Copying links to locations in OneNote and pasting into other places creates a short HTML link in a format "Location (Web View)". Something similar in Teams would be brilliant. Pasting links to places or documents in Teams (even within the Teams environment) results in gargantuan strings like:

    https://teams.microsoft.com/_#/files/abcde?threadId=19%3A5284adh639fm85844c01ad0e633c0e7f272b%40thread.skype&messageId=1507595897215&ctx=channel&context=New%2520Phase%252F01%2520Client%2520Issued%2520Documents%252FCore%2520Dialogue%2520Documents

  14. Smaller font in chat window

    Please can we optionally set a smaller - preferably desktop - font? The primary purpose of the computer is WORK, not chat!

  15. The "You've got the latest updates" shares no useful information and is not helpful

    Starting teams often shows a popup that says "You've got the latest updates." This popup provides little to no value as you can't even reference any sort of relevant patch notes.

    Please consider removing it entirely.

  16. URL Previews for all URLs

    It appears only URLs with certain meta tags get previewed in chat. It would be very useful to have all URLs get a preview inline.

  17. Teams startup in system tray only

    Please create an option for Teams to startup in the system tray only. I can get more people to use it that way! I really like this app so far!

  18. Add a favorites tab that keeps my favorite teams and chats in one place.

    On the left-hand panel there should be a "Favorites" Tab, that list all of my favorited Teams and chats in one place. Having two separate tabs for Teams and Chats is annoying. Also, when you go to the "Favorties tab" it should group the Teams and Chats separately. Thanks.

  19. Move a folder

    I'd like to be able to move folders once they are created. Either by dragging and dropping or by clicking on then and using an option like "Move to...".

  20. Tabs appearance customization

    Tabs are of great help when it comes to productivity enhancement. We can already change a tabs name, but it would be awesome to be able to further customize them (font color, back color) or, even better, to display small icons matching the corresponding program (PDF, PPT, OneNote, etc.). This way, it would be easier to work with many tabs and have a quick overview of what has been pinned in a given channel. Thanks in advance!

    Simple workaround in the meantime: I personally use special characters in front of the name of the tab. For instance:
    ⎙This doc
    ⎙That…
