    A lot of times, a presenter is sharing a screen and talking while everybody on mute. Throughout the screen share and demo, the presenter will ask, "Does that make sense?" and they get little to no feedback because everybody is on mute.
    It'd be great to have some sort of selection of a few emoji to provide feedback that would appear over the screen (like a facebook live stream). When the presenter says "do you like this feature" or, "does this makes sense?", the participants can thumbs up, thumbs down, etc.

    Or even live during presentations people can LIKE or…

  3. Display own Email-Address

    End users will often require their own Email address as contact information. Since the email is not displayed in the client this can become a hurdle - especially when multiple tenants are in use.
    Please display the Email address of the Teams account next to, or below the user name when pressing the profile icon/picture at the right top.

  6. Keyboard support on iOS/iPad

    Small thing, but I’d like to be able to submit a message in Teams on iOS with a keyboard shortcut. Return goes to a new line and Command + Return does nothing.

  7. saved messages as a feed

    Add Saved Messages to the dropdown of options in the Activity App. So you have 'feed', 'my activity', 'my saved messages'. Crazy you have to go to your user profile essentially to get to 'saved messages'.
    Mobile App supports 'saved messages' as an app, but the desktop doesn't.

  8. increase

    Love the pop-out window for a chat session!

    Would be great to be able to "zoom" the size like I can on the main application (CTRL - "+").

  10. Think beyond the 4-tile grid! It's tym

    Well, during the lockdown, to offer a human touch, maybe u can think of a gallery view - a real hangout feel it gives.

    And one step closer... can be a virtual 2-to-tango booth (with restrictions n virtual eyes on).

    In the era of social distancing, this way people can cut the clutter, yet hold on to a meaningful n personal conversation. :-)

    Wat say buddy!!!

  11. Fix the UHD and scaling support when moving between displays

    Laptop UHD - 250% scale
    Second display HD - 125% scale

    When starting teams or moving teams between displays it regularly explodes in size and expands or appears outside the domain of the display.

    A lot of time is spent resizing the application to fit within the screen again so it can be read/used.

    Similarly on startup, when defaulting to the second (left) display the application starts off the edge of the screen and needs to be moved and resized to use again. The original placement and size is not remembered or honoured.

  12. Move small video boxes while in a mtg/call to the top of the screen instead of the bottom

    When someone is sharing their screen, all of the video boxes move to the bottom of the screen. If you want to see the person presenting, you are looking all the way at the bottom of the screen. Two reasons to move the videos to the top: 1) this is closer to your eye level, 2) it looks like youre looking into the camera because the video you're looking at is closer to the camera on the computer itself.

  13. Create option so the participants can be viewed at the top of the window instead of the bottom

    Create option so meeting participants can be viewed at the top of the window instead of the bottom. Rationale: Most people have their external video camera mounted to the top of their screen so this will enable people to make eye contact with the other attendees (not looking down or in the corner)

  14. I would like to be able to hide the conversation window when I am not using it.

    Basically I would like Teams to act like Skype for Business, where if I'm not on a call or chat, it just shows my list of contacts. If I am in a call, I would like the conversation window to show that call and not, for example, the last chat or meeting I was in.

  15. Selectively mark messages as read

    When I come back to the office after several days off I have a lot of unread Teams messages. Reviewing them is a challenge because there is no way to easily mark a thread as partially viewed. I start reviewing a thread, move on to something else, then have to figure out where in the thread I was.

    This is one area where email has an advantage. With email, the application only marks messages as "read" that I explicitly open. I think there should be a special "bulk read" mode for Teams that forces the user to acknowledge each message.…

  17. Can we get a new group to work on this? We have 3 year old fixes going untouched. You are very bad at your jobs.

    The interface, which was trash when it launched, is still trash. You haven't implemented OSX native notifications yet. And the features that you DO have are WORTHLESS in a Business environment (who the **** needs Virtual Backgrounds? Seriously.).

    Can you maybe get a NEW group to work on this, because obviously the current group of slackjawed, overpaid, code monkeys can't seem to grasp that you need to respond to bug reports, and fix them in a timely manner.

    MacOS Notifications should have been implemented before you even rolled this out on a Mac Platform. Instead we have Teams dependent notifications,…

  18. Chat y barra de herramientas

    No puedo leer el chat y seguir escuchando la conferencia en el celular. Al leer los comentarios se deja de escuchar el tema.

    Igualmente si quiero leer los mensajes de otra aplicación la conferencia deja de escucharse.

    La barra de herramientas de Microsoft y los anuncios en la parte superior donde dice que la conferencia está grabando bloquean la visibilidad de lo que se expone en el tema. Ojalá se puedan mejorar estos aspectos.
    Saludos!

  20. Buddy list breakout window (Skype for business, AIM, Steam, etc..)

    Missing the ability to popout or break out a buddy list type display that shows presence and allows for quick messaging.

    Taking something like the "Calls" category and allowing it to float and/or always be on top outside of the main app window would suffice. One of the main things I'm missing from Skype is being able to see at a glance who on my team is active and to be able to quickly message them.
