  1. Reduce vast white space in the desktop view

    Reduce vast amount of white space to enable to teams to occupy a small amount of a desktop screen.
    Minimising the text size is not a solution to this
    Have option for latest message to show on top not at the bottom
    Have message alert show actual message or part of it, rather than just alert to message, as in the start of an email, or a tweet, to minimise useless clicking on non-useful messages that show just "new message" where large numbers of people are messaging in teams

  2. Full width chat

    On desktop, chat takes up only the center of available field. Woiuld be much better use of space, if the chat was full width

  4. Desktop Icon Creation Duplication with OneDrive Known Folder Move

    In a shared computer environment, an admin may choose to install the Team Machine Wide Installer MSI.

    Teams is then installed at every user logonif it doesn't exist.

    "%ProgramFiles%\Teams Installer\Teams.exe --checkInstall --source=default"

    Is put in the following key

    HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    This presents an issue when using OneDrive Known Folder Move. When a new user logs on to a PC, OneDrive has its own installation and update process. The Teams installer will start and finish before OneDrive has installed, updated and initiated Known Folder Move for the new user profile.

    Teams will create a desktop icon in the %USERPROFILE%\Desktop shell…

  5. Repeated crashes of desktop client during startup without any error feedback. Thus cannot solve. Will NOT recommend this to anyone.

    I cannot imagine all this crashing (also reported quite frequently during original launch) is actually caused by something very serious. I get the impression that an error is not properly ignored dragging down with it the entire epplication.
    Idea is to refactor the error handling inside the application to only exit on serious errors.

  7. Change status when holding cursor over Teams icon in task bar

    At one point, I could put my cursor over the Teams icon and from there change my status from away to... in one click. But, I usually have to open Teams and then do several more clicks to change my status.

  9. non-default ringtone selection does not stick - Desktop

    In the Settings you can (it would seem) select a different ringtone for incoming calls. I have done this numerous times, and it always reverts back to Default.
    You can set a new ringtone, close settings, open settings, and it is back to Default. It doesn't stick at all.

  11. Tag/Untag RMB and Settings and Visual Indicator of Change

    Currently:

    - You can RMB and click "Notify When User Available"
    
    - In Settings you can persistently Tag a user for a Change In Status for Available or Offline

    First Issue: There is no visual indicator by the user's name in Recent or Contacts that the user is tagged for status change. This needs to be "fixed" as you may have tagged someone "this morning" or "yesterday" and it no longer is important.

    Assuming the verbiage is literal, here are some other issues and usability considerations:

    - Tagging a user is an On-Demand type of feature.  Burying it under Setting/Notification/bottom

  12. Chatting would be easier to read if my answers appeared just under the other persons and not jogged over to the right.

    Maybe you could give people the option to have it appear as it is now or more left justified like when you’re writing a document.

  13. Forward Conversations to chat/another team/channel

    I love this feature in mobile - would really use it in the Windows app/browser/Mac app. The ability to take a chat message, or channel message, and from the '. . .' menu have the forward option, where you can forward the message to another person, or to another channel/team.
    That would help us use group chat for conversations outside of the team with non team members, then take the final message that has a solution to a 'problem' and pass it back to the team.

  15. Barras superiores

    hola, las barras superiores son muy anchas y no aportan contenido ni funcionalidad a la aplicación.
    Es más, el titulo de la aplicacion de word que estoy usando se encuentra duplicado.

  16. Right Mouse Click to Tag/UnTag User for Status Change

    SFB allows you to right mouse click a user and "tag" them for a status change. Teams feature is buried inside of Settings. This is a feature that is mostly used in an "on-demand" moment because of a time sensitive need to contact that user. Burying the setting inside of Settings greatly inhibits the usefulness of "tagging/untagging" a user.

    Please implement the ability to "tag/untag" a user by right mouse clicking a user anywhere in Teams or the office products.

  17. Simple client

    You should release a simple Client for customers that are only using this feature for videoconferencing/Meetings
    I personaly think that the Teams Client is to complicated for the average user to use in general.
    Also had a lot of issues With tenants that have been upgraded and have misses Meetings With external customers due to the fact that they are not able to contact external Clients in S4B.

  18. Incoming call notification

    I'm using a lot of head set, but not all the time. Head set is connected to USB all the time.

    I would like to hear something like ringtone also from desktop/laptop, when I'm not wearing head set.

  19. Нет оповещений

    Нет оповищения об новых сообщениях. Пока не зайдешь в приложения, не видно сообщений.

  20. Ability to enable persistent notifications / alerts for group conversations.

    If you message someone privately via teams they will get a popup, a sound notification and the Icon will flash orange - indicating that a message has arrived.

    We want the ability to be able to turn this level of notification ON for group threads.

    The threads are fairly Quiet and so this will not be intrusive, it would just be WAY more helpful if when we post into a group thread everyone knew about it Right away, rather than adding a Team update and then having to send an email saying "check teams", which kinda defeats the purpose

    many…
