  1. Different color for different status

    Is there a way where the color status of users can be changed? i.e. I see the color of a person's status as Green when Available but I see it Red when Busy, in a Call or in a Meeting. Because of this we mistakenly end up calling the person while the other person is in another call already. This is obviously annoying for the recipient of the call.

    It would be good to have different colors for different activity. May be Orange color when a person is in another call or something like that. This will help other user…

  6. Please add option to add multiple accounts in Teams as is allowed on the mobile app.

    It is great to just click a button to switch between accounts just like the mobile app has. If it can be worked in the mobile app, why not allow this in the desktop app? This will save users time from having to log out & in between accounts when needed.

  7. Automatically hide video window during desktop sharing

    When sharing your desktop, the small video window should automatically hide or minimize. This small video window (since shown on the shared desktop) is seen by all attendees, but never shows the presenter (only other attendees are shown, as they speak).

  11. Notification Badge in Taskbar (set on Left side of the screen) for unread message

    This could be a bug in Teams. It does not show notification badge on taskbar for new-unread message.
    I have my Windows 10 Taskbar settings as Taskbar location on Left side of screen and Taskbar buttons never combine. Also, I have enabled the setting for Showing Badges. My current taskbar setting snap is attached.
    In this setup, I see new message notification banner as expected but it does not show any badge count/red icon on taskbar.
    My Teams application always stays open or minimized.

    In the top of that, Teams's icon on taskbar also does not get Yellow highlighted upon…

  17. Quick Mute / Un-mute While Hovering in Taskbar

    When hovering over the teams icon in the TaskBar, it would be incredibly helpful for there to be a quick mute / un-mute button. When multi-tasking or on long calls, I seldom ever keep Teams running in the foreground, but I'm constantly switching between mute and un-mute. Currently the hover over feature allows for a quick change of availability / status... A feature I've never once used or even considered using. Please add this!

  18. Do not reset status after 24 hours

    Currently, if I change my status to "Do not disturb", it automatically resets the status after 24 hours. Nowhere did I define that it should do so, and nowhere does it say that it's going to do so, which makes the reset mighty confusing, besides being misleading because it you don't keep an eye on it, it suggests to people that they can disturb when you'd really rather they didn't.

  19. Navigation from Teams to Chat and back to Teams should put you back in same channel

    If you


    1. go to some channel in the Teams view,

    2. navigate to the Activity view,

    3. navigate back to the Teams view,

    you can end up in a completely different channel that you started out with. Besides being confusing on its own, this adds some amount of risk that you end up inputting messages in the wrong channel.

  20. Share Screen w/o needing to be a call. Other person might be on a call.

    Need ability to just share screen not tied to a call. The person on the other side might be in another call. It should not put their call on hold.
