  1. 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!

  2. Teams in SysTray does not distinguish between Activity & Presence

    Whether you are in a meeting or got a message, in both cases you get a RED DOT. This is not clear or very helpful.

  3. Allow turning off automatic spell checking

    Please add the ability to turn off the "check spelling as I type" feature in the Microsoft Teams Windows app. I use the web app instead of the Windows app simply because I cannot turn off this feature in the Windows app. My opinion is probably in the minority, but I find automatic, real-time spell checking (with the squiggly red lines) to be the most annoying feature ever implemented in any computer program -- even worse than "Clippy" the Windows paperclip help assistant.

  4. Ability to archive Chat Conversations

    Please add the ability to archive and/or delete conversation history form the Chat conversations. It's terrible to open a chant while sharing a screen and everyone sees your past chats.

  6. Screen Clipping Inserts

    Teams and Skype for Business need to have Screen Clipping as soon as possible. My team and I find this feature so helpful in Zoom.

  7. Improve the Mac App

    - Can't find it in Mac App Store
    - Weird first run experience (very un-Maclike)
    - Didn't know which monitor it was on (had windows on both)
    - Ignored system level text replacements when trying to log in (I have a shortcut for my fairly long email address)
    - Non-standard UI, and not in a good "I hope this takes off" way
    - Non-standard emojis automatically used when you type keyboard ones (e.g. ;) is turned into a horrible animated winking face that looks like it is leering at me... but it also lets you insert system native ones alongside…

  8. 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?

  9. Fix Edit in Word/Excel - Currently not working

    When you have saved an excel/ word file in files section in teams then you click on the file and edit. The edit in word/excel online works but the edit in word/excel does nothing and does not open word/excel to edit the document. Desktop teams version is Microsoft Teams Version 1.0.00.10302 (64-bit). It was last updated on 4/21/17.

  10. Remote Support via Microsoft Teams

    Skype for Business offers the possibility to support colleagues remote instead of using Teamviewer.

    Normal Skype and Teamviewer are our current tools

    The remote support via Microsoft Teams would be another excellent reason why my colleagues should install Teams.

  12. Team Dashboard / Landing Page

    When you click on a Team, it would be nice if you got a dashboard for the team / landing page instead of going directly to the "general" channel.

    This would be a great place to roll-up information for activity in the team:
    - recent conversations (from all channels within the team)
    - recent or all documents (similar to the OneDrive landing page, but scoped to the Team
    - search
    - membership list
    - pinned content
    - static content (to post general team information)

  13. Ability to prevent auto-start persistantly and programmatically using TAC/Group Policy

    See MSTCommunity request here -

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/How-to-Prevent-Teams-from-Auto-Launch/m-p/730658#M34150

    Even though autostart can be prevented upon installation a single time (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/teams-install) and then turned off manually within the desktop client, there is a need by some businesses to ensure that the Desktop client does not auto-start at any time and yet be able to enable this programmatically via TAC/Group Policy without having to jump in users desktop client to turn it off.

  15. 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…

  18. Desktop app should use much less system memory.

    I installed the desktop app, and it's by far the most memory-hungry program in my system. When I took the screenshot, it was even running in the background. And why are there 4 of them? I'm seriously concerned this will cause performance issues with my computer.
