  1. 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!

  2. 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)

  3. 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.

  4. 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...".

  5. Too much white space in UI and not enough message density

    There is far too much graphical 'white space' between messages in teams. It is not serving any value and is wasteful. For example move the 'Reply' button to the right of the message rather than below, the Reply button being below every message wastes valuable vertical space. On top of this there is a 'gap' or border and moat between each message. Compare to mIRC, Slack or other chat clients one can review much more messages and read more seamlessly without having to scroll as often. In other words, make it more chat client'y and less email client'y.

  6. 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.

  7. share a link to local version of documents (file:///)

    It would improve usability for a team on a LAN to be able to use links to local folders. Can this feature be added? I just want to have a clickable link to Windows File Explorer, like you can with html.

  8. 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.

  9. Combine Chat and Teams

    It would be great if 'Teams' and 'Chat' were in the same navigation along the left rail. I constantly have to jump out of chat and over to Teams when someone adds a message there and not in the 1 on 1 Chat. Teams seems like a Group Chat

  11. Add actual Contact List functionality for chats

    The current design/implementation for chats is terrible. Just create a way to create a contact list with the ability to sort people into "groups". Every other chat client does this. If this could be done, it would make Teams a lot more useable. If companies are expected to use Teams as a true collaboration tool, one of the biggest features are chat, which it currently sucks at (when compared to tools like Slack, HipChat, Trillian, etc.).

  12. 各チャネルの既読・未読について

    ・不便だと感じる現象
     チームのチャネルに複数人が複数の投稿を行った際、
     未読の「会話」があっても、気づきづらい。

    ・理由
     最新の会話は最下部に表示されるような設計になっており、
     複数人が別々の会話に投稿した場合、
     最下部から複数個の会話が未読状態となり、チャネル名が太字となる。
     ところが、その状態でチャネルを閲覧すると、
     太文字が解除されてしまい、どの会話が未読かまでは判断できない。
     見逃しが多数発生する。

    ・アイディア
     ・未読の会話には、未読を示すアイコンかなにかを表示してほしい。
     ・チャネル名の横に、未読の会話数を示す数値がほしい。

  14. Multitasking tabs

    Add tabs to the top or bottom for switching between multiple documents that are open simultaneously. Add the ability to drag the tab out to an open window, so that we can see two documents side by side. The way IE or Chrome handles this is intuitive and effective.

    Currently, I'm stuck to working on one document at a time. This causes me to not use teams nearly as much since I cannot effectively multitask.

  16. default theme too white; dark theme too dark

    default theme too white; dark theme too dark
    both are tough on the eyes.
    Please add contrasting shades of grey!

  17. Please allow users to choose an IRC-like format for Chat

    Right now, chat is displayed in bubbles, almost like an SMS text message. In my opinion, it should be changed to look like IRC (no bubbles, text displayed as a “wall” almost).

    Many other chat clients do this (Discord, Slack, HipChat), and I think it lends itself very well to group chat. At the very least, an option to change between display styles would be MUCH appreciated.

  18. Wasted horizontal space

    It feels like there's a lot of wasted horizontal space in the channels, particularly when I am hooking up integrations that post quite a lot of information, each post is centred in the channel with very large borders each side of unused whitespace.

    This results in lots of information compressed into a small area and more scrolling needed as a result.

  19. select multiple messages

    I cannot select multiple messages at the same time. Sometimes I need to copy full conversations and this is impossible to be done from Teams

  20. Override default TAB behaviour when editing a file

    When editing a file, such as an Excel document, the natural behaviour of pressing TAB to advance a cell is instead captured by the parent application, Teams.

    As a user this is somewhat unexpected and not useful.

    Most people working in the office suite in teams, will expect the TAB key behaviour to be the same.

    Small point, big impact for those that wish to use this app regularly :)
