  1. Improve Install options - Install for all users and install location

    Raising this again as Microsoft closed the previous request, saying it was complete even though it was not. (link below)

    Teams should install to the program files directory, not the users AppData.

    And NO, the answer is not to put a copy of the MSI in Pogram Files and deploy to the users AppData when they login.

  2. Slow interface

    Lazy loading for chat history is implemented quite bad and without any local cache. It's quite challanging to search among older conversations.

  3. add more apps

    In the desktop app, I should be able to add more items to the left side of the app panel.

    Unless the option is already there, and I am merely missing it.

  4. so much wasted space - only 8 comments/entries fit at a time. GROSS. look at IRC, get closer to that. This is just wasteful.

    So much wasted space - only 8 comments/entries fit at a time. GROSS. look at IRC, get closer to that. This is just wasteful - of screen real estate and users's time.

    Who came up with this design? Certainly not someone who would actually USE the tool.

  5. Teams Desktop app "snap" to maximize the screen doesn't fill entire screen

    If I use the "Snap assist" (dragging a window to the top of my monitor to maximize the Teams desktop app, the screen "maximizes" but is about 1/4 of an inch from the top of the screen. I have duplicated this behavior on a 2-monitor setup from one computer, and using a separate laptop with a single-monitor display. I don't think it's much of an "issue" with a single-monitor set up because you wouldn't have a reason to take the steps to replicate, but it happens consistently as follows.

    Steps to Replicate (assume 2-monitor setup):


    1. "snap" top of screen to…

  6. Teams Windows client greatly increases roaming profile size (Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams)

    On Windows, Teams is available as an end user self-install app. The app installs to AppData\Local, so not part of the roaming profile. However, it stores LOTS of content in AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams.

    Our organisation uses roaming profiles and profile size policy; users are beginning to exceed a [very generous!] limit, and Teams is a big cause of this.

    Please fix!

  8. Images need to behave like consumer Skype

    Pasting an image into the chat window, and having it very slowly upload like a file is very painful and not user friendly. Please emulate the behaviour of consumer Skype when it comes to handling images.

    Teams even said my 4.4MB image was too large... other chat applications just compress the image and don't complain. You can't expect users to be compressing their own images in order to be able to send them, it'll be a support nightmare.

  9. Liked channel

    Usually, when I see that message is important or useful I put a like. There is no way to select all messages from all channels by likes.

  11. Allow rotation of photos in desktop app integrated photo viewer.

    Currently the integrated photo viewer in the desktop app, for viewing attached photos in conversations, does not support photo rotation. Please integrate, thanks!

  12. Replace Electron app with Native app that runs fast on desktop.

    Desktop Microsoft Teams is, well, basically useless. It is the slowest app I use on any PC. It needs either some MAJOR performance improvements or a complete re-write as a Native app so that it runs fast on PCs.

    Come on guys, you can do better than this!

  13. Open links to teams in Desktop App

    SITUATION: When you receive a link to a Teams file or folder, or really anything in Teams, like a Planner task - it sends you to the sharepoint site, regardless of whether you have the Desktop App installed and even if it is open.

    RESOLUTION: Make links to any Teams elements open directly in the Teams Desktop App

    This will save so much time and frustration from people, and also make Teams seem like a more integrated solution for everyone.

  14. macOS native share experience

    Please make an add-in so we can share directly from the macOS plattform into teams. You have this on iOS already and it is GREAT.

  17. Window Sharing OneNote Modern App and Edge

    Some of the modern apps do not show up in Window Sharing. I hit Share Desktop and the options to share Desktop is there and many of the applications I have open except for Edge and OneNote thus far do not have the option to Window Share. Allow for all active windows to be able to share.
