  1. Kein spontaner Credential Log-In

    Während des Chattens (mitten im Satz) öffnet sich ohne Vorwarnung der Credential LogIn. Sehr störend.

  3. UX improvement

    remove the automatic close of pop-ups when there is unsaved form entries/comments. OR, keep the form entry data in a draft state so that the form can be re-opened again if accidentally closed to retrieve the unsaved form.

    An example of accidental data loss... when highlighting unsaved text in a pop-up form (ironically to Ctr-C in case the text is lost), if you drag your mouse too far outside the pop-up, it automatically closes the pop-up ad loses the unsaved data.

    I think it's a mix of user error but also poor UX design.

    P.S. There was a similar issue…

  4. Typing @ anywhere in the UI offers an intelligent user list for user selection

    Typing @ anywhere in any available text box should present a list of users to select, not just in the main team chat.

    If I am in a private chat with someone I still need to reference other user so that the reader can simply click the referenced user.

    Currently this only works in specific areas, such as the Team chat.

  5. Please do not put the DELETE option directly below the DOWNLOAD option for a file.

    When you click on the ellipsis next to a file, there is a menu of options displayed to the user. One of these is DOWNLOAD, and the one directly below it is DELETE. For doing nearly the exact opposite of the intended goal for a user, I don't think they should be right next to each other.

  6. Make it easier to move the main window

    I use Teams a lot and mostly love it. But as it gets ever more feature-rich and the application bar itself is consumed with new features, it also becomes annoyingly difficult to just move the window around on the desktop.

    In the current design, the window title bar includes forward/back buttons, chart start button, search field, tenant-selector drop down, user icon/menu, minimize, maximize, close.

    Where do I point the mouse to just MOVE the window? Well, it's possible still, but the number of pixels left without UI elements is almost gone. So moving the window has now become a non-intuitive…

  7. Make the new icons consistent with the rest of office!

    Hey Teams team,

    you know the love for your product is undying, but can you do us pedantic bunch a favour and make the icon a consistent size with the rest of Office? See the attached (look at the T compared with the other Office icons).

    Same applies for the Android app too.

    Cheers.

  9. The UI is unusable

    The window is inflexibly massive. The side panels look klunky and consume huge amounts of space when expanded, which can't be changed. The "content" area is similarly inflexibly laid out with added panels on some things that render the entire thing unusable without making the window even more gargantuan than it already is. If I want something to waste and entire monitor on this may be usable. I don't. Every single thing about the interface is clearly designed for someone who uses their computer like it's a phone. Stop cramming phone metrics down everyone's throat.

  11. Recent downloads page

    I would like to have a "Downloads" page similar to common browsers. I am not aware of where my Downloads end up after it have been downloaded, there is no easy list of the recent downloads from teams.

  12. "Join Teams Meeting" page should have "Use Teams" and "Use Web" as the buttons, with a download link underneath

    Change the three click options so that the two buttons are "Join on the App" and "Join on the Web" with a download link underneath.

    It is currently "Download" and "Join on the web" with the "Join using Teams" as a link underneath. This doesn't seem consistent.

  13. Messages organization and mail spam

    The feed looks absolutely clumsy. There's good reason no apps for group chat have a common feed. Everything looks too messed up. I also get an email for every channel mention and it's very annoying and a lot of spam. Nobody wants to see chat in their mail, that's what mailing groups are meant for. I've tried turning it off with no success so now I just report them spam. Channels have sub channels and it all looks too disorganised. It gets hard to navigate about who posted where in what sub channel. All in all it's a very complex…

  14. As a host, I want to resize the screen portion of a camera feed

    By default, Teams will split the screen so all the camera feeds share "equally" the display area. This is a big inconvenient for many different situations. This lack of flexibility is getting more than annoying now.

  15. Improvement to RSS Connector - Add Title and Article Dates

    The RSS feed could use some extra metadata so it's clear what's new and what isn't.

    Part of the problem I'm having is that the feed picks up the same articles repeatedly, so it's hard to tell when something new was actually posted.

  16. Hide the darn sidebar....

    Don't you just love it when you're in Teams and someone shares their desktop and control with you, but the Teams sidebar reappears every time you move your mouse to the left... Want to click on the start button, nope, can't do that.... Teams gets in the way.

    Take this stupid side bar / navigation bar / whatever you want to call it and get it out of the way when sharing a desktop / remote control. How about allowing us to unpin it and move it somewhere else... Or turn it off, or how about just fixing Teams so…

  17. Remove red dot from calls icon

    The red dot on the calls icon makes you think as if there's something important to be aware of. This is irritating each time you open Teams.

  18. Move the message option control out of the message

    Move the message option control out of the message. It prevent user from copying the last part of the message if the message is short (which is covered by ).

  19. Use the latest version of Roboto on Teams for Android.

    The current Android app (Version 1416/1.0.0.2019051402(ring3_9) seems to be using an outdated version of Roboto from before Android 5. The app can just rely on the system font instead of packaging Roboto with it.
