  1. UI and UX

    The interface and user experience, they both feel cluttered, static, structured: Both have been designed by and for left-side-brainers. Try to make it more fluid, clear, cheerful, actually atractive to creative people as well. There are no customization options in the desktop app, and colors are too dark. Bigger icons; and icons for the chanels as well, not just text. Thos vertical panels separate the areas, but try a better distribution. At the end, looks like somebody tried to revive messenger from the 00s

  2. Button to display/change my online status, always visible in iOS UI

    I want to be able to quickly and easily change my online status while in the iOS app. Currently, I have to click More to see and change my status.
    I think that my status and the ability to change it should be in the top left and corner, on the left of the search button. It will then be visible, whether in Chat, Teams, Activity or Meetings.

  3. Better marketing and name recognition

    Our university is using Teams more and more, but it still remains awkward to invite or request communication via the app. "Chat" is too generic, as are "Calls." For example, if I am requesting a meeting with someone, I can offer Zoom (which is recognizable and obvious as to what I'm asking) or <awkwardly fumbles for easy description> 'Microsoft Teams video call.' It's way too much and doesn't flow. I request you rename the features to something more catchy and exclusive, or start advertising a way to phrase it that will become common knowledge (maybe TeamsChat or something better). Also,…

  6. Automate Availability status; Available post login, Away after signout, Be right back after 30 mins of inactivity

    Automate Availability status; Available post login, Away after signout, Be right back after 30 mins of inactivity.

    My organisation is not staffed by full-time 9-5 employees. We are volunteers and have varying work cycles.

    Like others, I forget to update my status. Surely, a login means you are available? And Sign-out means you aren't and "away." Inactivity for 30 mins means your are temporarily away? These can be automated and not manual updates?

  10. Have presence detection consider multi desktop

    Have the auto presence detection consider if the windows desktop Teams is on it the current desktop.

    As more people are working at home, and using Teams they are using personal PCs. For me, I separate my work activities and personal stuff using the Windows 10 multiple desktop feature. I have a desktop for work stuff, where I run Teams logged into my Work account. When my work day ends, and I move over to my "personal" desktop I would like teams to detect that and set my status as aways (just as it does when the PC is idle).

  11. Let us control how many minutes pass before our status is set to Away.

    Other software can do this. Let us control how many minutes pass before our status changes.

  13. Better presentations

    Today it is very boring to listen to a ppt presentation over teams since the presentation is the tool and the presenter is not in focus. A presentation should be a support to a presenter. I want to have the option to be able to appear like the attached picture to be a more active part of the presentation.

  14. a status button that indicates - "feel free to drop by my virtual desk"

    to give a better feel of the spontaneity of just dropping by someone's desk beyond a "chat" message, show a status that means, sure, pick up the phone/video and call me for a quick conversation.

  15. Floating bar in Meeting that informs me that I AM NOT MUTED

    I see ask for Colored Border with same info but I'm not sure what that looks like versus floating bar. Border may be less distracting. I just want this status to be VERY VISIBLE to me. - Not that I'm making horridly distracting noise on my end BUT... somehow I accidentally toggle that mute button and my coworkers can tend to want to shoot me. Thank you.

  17. Show presence in the @ auto complete dop-down

    When starting conversations with people via @ in the search bar the presence of the person is not shown on the result in the drop down. This small feature would make teams so much better.

  18. When clicking quit in Teams it should set status as Offline.

    When either clicking Quit on Teams or shutting down at the end of a work day, Teams should show a status of Offline. It currently leaves me as available and people will continue to message me when I am off for the day thinking I am available and causes confusion and frustration on both ends. When clicking Quit in Teams or shutting down the computer, it should set status as Offline.

  19. automated status update option

    please give a choice that can impliment automated status changes. i.e. when i'm in a call, my status will show in a call or do not disturb, if i'm not using my computer for certain minutes, it turns to away automatically. I hate when i'm having a call, but someone couldn't see it and calls as well.
