  1. reply back to a specific message

    On the mobile app you have the functionality to swipe back to reply back to a specific comment however with the desktop version there is no feature to reply back to a specific comment unless you click on the format button, click the quote button, copy and past the comment double click enter and then you can enter your comment which is a long winded and very user unfriendly.

    Is there no spec to get a reply back feature if you click on the "..." for More Options to have a reply back option and or forward option on the…

  4. Add Open FOLDER option on downloaded file.

    When a person sends you a file in a chat window you get the option to open it or get a link, but no OPEN FOLDER option. Depending on the file you may not want to open it directly.

    And it is HARD to find the downloaded folder even when clicking the files tab.

    Please add an Open Folder option for downloaded files.

  9. 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!

  10. Better integration with Twitter

    Better integration with Twitter.
    For example, when creating a connector for Twitter.
    I would like to have an easy way of selecting all the people I follow instead of adding them one by one.

  11. 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.

  12. small window view needed - similar to IM

    Right now it's just annoying and clunky. I need something small that doesn't take up a ton of space. Already have tons of windows open on my computer.

  13. 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…

  14. Open Team in New Window

    It would be great to have the ability to right-click on a team and choose "Open Team in New Window." That would be the only team in the new window, allowing the user to focus on that team's work. And even better if that window only accepted chats from that team's members.

  15. 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.

  16. 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 :).

  17. 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.

  18. 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…

  19. 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!

  20. consistent and flatten UI and badges

    There are WAY too many tab-like layers in the UI leading to many ways to see the same content and inconsistent badges/indicators.

    Suggestions:
    1. Remove the side bar with "Activity", "Chat", "Teams", etc. Switching between them constantly is very annoying.
    2. "Activity" should cease to exist. I should be able to see the most recent activity in a flat UI via badges.
    3. Make badges or indicators consistent. Using a red badge for unread messages AND then on the contacts using a red badge for busy status is very confusing to a casual glance to see what you missed. I…
