  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  4. Teams language setting Reset Issue.

    We apply a Japanese language pack to "Teams", however after Teams Update, the display setting reset to the English on base language. So I would like you to fix it.
    This is because English is set as the display language and the translation function of English can not be used.

  5. When using the Teams Desktop App, the App should not prompt you to download the Team Desktop App. Seriously, how narcissistic can an App be?

  7. Allow you to share desktop without being in a meeting. Skype allows this feature.

    Allow you to share your desktop without being in a meeting. Skype allows you to share your desktop at anytime. Why do you have to create a meeting to allow the desktop to be shared.

  10. 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.

  11. 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!

  12. Allow client to export my chat messages

    Individual and group chats absolutely has to have the ability to export it out as a word document or such. For a large business sometimes the context of a chat has to be copied out for various reasons and to not have the ability to do that is simply insane. There needs to be an export option (PDF, DOC ECT.) included in chats. Saving one individual message is not adequte.

  14. join meeting audio: teams calls phone

    not a new idea but, please allow us to choose more audio options while dialing into a meeting, this was the most useful thing in s4b I could choose to join with skype for bus, not to join audio, or have a handy list of phone numbers for skype to automatically call. please bring that to teams, my users are complaining so much about this little feature,

  15. Install to Program Files instead of appdata due to blocking EXEs from other locations

    We are implementing AppLocker to block ALL EXEs from running from other locations other than Windows and Program Files. We know we could make an exception, however it is still a vulnerability as users can still alter data in the appdata. In addition, for every user it will have an individual install. I understand the ease of use and profile based configuration that Teams is geared towards, however we would like BOTH options for enterprise and education environments.

  16. Do Not Disturb for Calls

    We need the ability to quickly indicate do not disturb for phone calls in teams. Its obnoxious to have spammers interrupt my teams audio calls with the phone ringing.

  17. Use PNG format for small images

    Teams seems to use the JPEG format for all images pasted into it, regardless of the size. This format makes pictures such as screenshots look absolutely horrible, with artefacts going rampant around any text or other sharp edges. A lossless PNG format would be more suited for the task.

  18. Layout Changes

    Allow the layout to be changed vs the fixed layout.

    Even on large displays the layout takes up too much space and much of it is wasted space.

    The navigation tool for the Wiki needs to be able to have a push pin in it so it can stay open so you can navigate without an extra click to open in back up.

  19. Enable enterprise control for application install

    Running a "stateless virtual desktops", has enabled our company of 5,000 staff to operate with 15 desktop support staff, which represents operational efficiency, cost saves, consistent patching and a consistent experience. Teams will not run in this environment because we can't App-V it and it gets installed in local data which is destroyed at logoff. We have a portfolio of 400 unique apps and Teams is the first which will not work and therefore cannot be deployed. Please make this enterprise ready...

  20. Teams window got out the monitor limit if using multiple monitors

    If Teams window is maximized on one of multiple monitors it got out the monitor limit, and you see a little part of teams window on other monitor.
    Annoying :)
