  1. Window Actions Like Minimize and Close Are Sluggish

    There is a noticeable delay >1 second between clicking Minimize or Close and having the action be executed by the window.

    It's super annoying.

  2. Integrate the Windows 'Teams' app into Outlook

    Can the desktop Teams app be integrated into Outlook?

    As most people have outlook open all day on their desktop, it would make sense to integrate Teams into Outlook for internal instant communications and file sharing, video chats and meetings etc?

  3. Liking something is not enough

    Need to be able to do much more then liking something. Need to be able to disliking, approving etc. Bagging like and just letting a user express their response with an emoji is a better way to
    go.

  4. Would be nice if when changing to a chat screen Message box would gain focus

    this would allow quicker access to type messages.

    This is how other chat platforms have operated, my default behavior is to switch to a chat window and start typing... but I'm then usually triggering hot keys.

    I would like to be able to go into a chat window and immediately be able to start typing without clicking the "Type a new message" box.

  5. Stop asking to download the client in the browser version

    Please add the option to disable the notification to download the client when opening Teams in a web browser, ask the first time, but also have an option to select not to be asked again.

  7. Option for Passive voice channels.

    As an avid gamer, I feel like we gamers are very good at collaboration.
    I would like to have a voice channel much like to see a passive voice channel where your team members can join and passively talk to each other as they work Much like how discord or team speak works in addition to what already exist in teams. This also will break up the monotony of needing excessive Skype meetings. For people whom work in the department, but are Geographically separated, and cant getup from their desk to just ask a teammate a simple question.

  10. Teams not using WIndows 10 Features (ex. Pin to Start, People Bar, Cortana, etc)

    Teams not using WIndows 10 Features (ex. Pin to Start, People Bar, Cortana, etc)

    I should be able to pin any item from Teams to the Start Screen
    - ex. Person I am chatting with
    Group I am chatting with
    Teams / Channel / Favorites.
    The fact is there is nothing in Teams that uses the Start Menu except for the app launching. As a Microsoft product I expect Teams to be in the forefront in taking advantage of the Windows 10 features.

    I should be able to pin my Teams contacts in the People Bar. I should be able…

  11. Would you supply screen shot function?

    Would you supply screen shot function?It's very useful for team members quick communication and it's should be a frequently-used function. I just don't understand how it could be missed in both Skype and Teams.

  12. Yikes! Microsoft Teams Desktop loses connection

    I am having an increasing number of people get a message
    "Yikes! Looks like someone pulled the plug on the internet."

    Seems to be random on who gets the message. These users are both using Windows 7 with the latest MS Updates. They were working fine one day and then get this message the next. I have uninstalled/reinstalled. This seems to fix the issue for a short time. One user abandoned the desktop client for the web version, but the web version does not receive the same functionality with notifications.

    Unfortunately, once they receive the message, it's done. No amount…

  14. Utility for record desktop screen and share in a Channel without a group meeting

    This utility is for make a record from Desktop and voice, and share in a Channel.
    My users prefer to use Loom software and this is a unsecure way.
    The ideal utility can be:
    1. Start a new recorder
    2. Save the record in Stream channel vinculated with the Team/channel
    3. Share the llink in the channel and also allow to watch the video directly from teams.

    What you think?

    Regards!

  17. Modern Authentication

    A message always comes up saying "modern authentication has failed". I close this window and the app signs in.
    Can there just be an option to disable "modern authentication".
    The regular sign in works :).

  18. Nice tool for team collaboration, however desktop sharing seem to be missing.

    Include desktop sharing capability and other existing Skype for business features if it is really true that Teams will replace SFB.

  19. Stay unread till pressed read botton

    When I go to Activity and press one of the new mention will automatically mark read on another thread's mention in the same channel which losts my attention. It is good to have a READ botton on the mention itself to manually mark as read, especially the mention was @ to me.

  20. Close desktop alert after clicking on the "X" button

    Currently, when I click on the "X" button of my desktop app's alert, the Microsoft Team's app opens instead of closing the alert.

    Reallyyyy annoying!
