  1. Configure app start up behavior

    It would be great if I can decide how the app starts up, like start up at boot but minimized, start up at boot maximized, do not start up at boot, etc..

      Hey folks, is this still not working for you? We pushed an update that may have fixed it. Please log in/out, then select one of the start up config options, then see if it works for you when you launch again. If it does NOT, then please email me your user logs. You can find them here:

      C:\Users\YOUR NAME\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams

      My email address is sparavi (at) Microsoft (dot) com. I’m sorry this is causing such a hassle for you all! We’ll get it fixed, I promise.

      Sincerely,
      Suphatra

    • Open in Word/Excel/PowerPoint as Default

      It would be great if Teams would have the ability to always launch the desktop app when opening Office documents as opposed to launching the online version.

      Rest of teams is awesome.

      • Windows app should stay minimized to system tray

        The Windows app keeps appearing as an active app in my app bar, even after I've closed the app so it is only in the Windows system tray.

        Apparently receiving a notification causes the app to jump from the system tray to the app bar - and that shouldn't happen.

        • Edit Shortcuts

          The ability to edit shortcuts and/or disable individual shortcuts. One thing that's very annoying (on a Mac) is the hash (#) symbol is Alt+3 but that's locked to "Open Microsoft Teams". This means using the alternative of holding down both Alt keys + 3.

          Generally having the ability to edit and have custom shortcuts would be welcome.

          • Non Persistent VDI

            Support for Non-Persistent VDI. Currently Teams desktop App installs in the user App folder this means it can't be placed on the base image of non persistent VDI environments.

            Are there any plans to provide an alternative install for VDI. Currently we are installing Teams at login for VDI users as a work around.

            • Desktop version allow detach for multiple monitors

              All the of the options on main bar you should have right click option to detach as a window to support multiple monitors. Maybe extend this option deeper into channels and conversations. This why you could have multiple sub windows for different conversations.

                • Save audio / video devices

                  On each meeting I have to re-select my audio and video devices. It would be good of those would stick, or if there a settings option to control that.

                  • Allow more proxy configuration

                    Teams automatically takes proxy configuration from browser and we want to change the configurations like in skype for consumer.

                    • Go native for Desktop

                      Please, for the love of sweet candy, go native on Desktop platforms.

                      I'm looking for an alternative for Slack as it uses electron which sucks every last bit of RAM it possibly can before destroying your computer in a sweet sweet fire. After seeing the wonderful performance of Office I was really hoping this would be native!

                      Please, someone with the development experience and financial backing of Microsoft must be able to accomplish this in your sleep. Surely?

                      • Support for Remote Desktop Services (RDS) & Citrix XenApp

                        RDS/Citrix XenApp support is *not* listed in the Teams Deployment Advisor or the Administrator Settings page (links below). This request is to add support for these scenarios since RDS/XenApp is very common in healthcare as well as other verticals as well as for remote access.

                          • Don't include Teams in task switcher when closed

                            When Teams is running it always appears in my task switcher (ALT+TAB), even after I have closed the window.

                            Steps:
                            1. Open teams and log on.
                            2. Make sure your settings are to keep the application running in close.
                            3. Close the window. You should no longer see Teams in your taskbar, but you should still see the Teams notification icon in the system tray.
                            4. Hold the ALT key and press TAB. Keep the ALT key pressed.

                            The next window in the task switcher is Teams, even though the window has been closed.

                            Worse yet - if I release…

                            • Expired password login loop

                              When I change my expired password in AD, and thus Office 365, Teams Desktop app asks me to login again. The app closes, re-opens and I get the same message. Loop. Cannot get to settings through normal method. Had to use the system tray icon to access settings to log out.

                              • Allow multiple instances of desktop version of Teams

                                I would love the ability to have more than one instance of the Teams desktop application running so that I can easily jump between information located in different places in Teams. As an example, today I can run multiple instances of Outlook allowing me to click on one instance to view emails and a second instance to view the calendar. This allows me to easily to windowed side-by-side comparisons and not "lose my place" from where I was looking at before if I want to look somewhere else in the application.

                                    • Window Actions Like Minimize and Close Are Sluggish

                                      There is a noticeable delay >1 second between clicking Minimize or Close and having the action be executed by the window.

                                      It's super annoying.

                                      • Teams app loosing connection

                                        The Teams app is loosing connection and has to be restarted. This seems to occur when on a wired network connection or wireless.
