  1. 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!

    • 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.

      • Windows classic theme

        Please bring back the Windows Classic Theme. Your new metro/Windows 10 theme takes up too much space E.g Window title bar is big (height) plus buttons that minimise and close the window. I love the classic theme and would absolutely appreciate it if you can bring it back.

        • 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.

          • Make error messages appear somewhere in the app

            On the mac desktop app, I try to upload a file that gives me an error. in the top right corner of my screen. Clicking on the error gives me nothing and I can't read the full message in the little bubble so I have no idea what's wrong. Maybe show the error in the actual chat so it's readable?

            • Ability to remove old conversions. Ability to sort by user set groups. Ability to set a custom status.

              Mac user.

              There is no ability to remove old conversations.
              There is no ability to sort by user groups (such as favorites).
              There is no ability to set a custom busy or away status (this is a major deal for the Outlook business ecosystem).
              The app is massive, so instead of a small contact list window, you have to have a big kludgy panel open across your screen at all times.

              • Persistent or network change resistant connections

                Please consider implementing persistent connections.

                On some networks I have to use VPNs that fiddle with both certificates and routing tables locally on my desktop, therefore making impossible to use your product when that network change occurs.

                By implementing persistent connections, the idea is to connect from a working network and then launch the VPN that changes things.

                Otherwise, congratulations on a very interesting product.

                • 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 :).

                  • Loading Screen Stuck

                    On my machine, there's a bug where the 'Loading Teams...' screen gets stuck and stays visible even after Teams is running, and I can't close it. I have to use Task Manager to kill it and restart Teams several times a day. It seems to be tied to suspend/resume as it doesn't happen right away when I start Teams. I'm using an HP ZBook with an HP dock.

                    • When I have Teams open on a monitor that isn't my main monitor and then undock my laptop, I'm unable to access

                      When I have Teams open on a monitor that isn't my main monitor and then undock my laptop, I'm unable to access the application as it keeps trying to open it on my other monitor which at that time isn't connected making it inaccessible.

                      • 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.

                        • Desktop app does not auto-reconnect

                          The desktop app does not reconnect automatically after internet connection is lost and up again. You need to click on "Reconnect" and neither this doesn't work all the times. Only the PC restart solves it. Teams app should reconnect automatically once Internet is up again (like Skype).

                          • Deep links need to be Pretty

                            If I’m grabbing a ref to share in another tool I don’t want to see the long obnoxious URL that has 10 giuds, etc. it short be REST like and follow the breadcrumb expectation of the user. Visually it could be “– cse fte - > region – Americas -> canan east -> all hands meetings > this month”

                            This is such a turnoff, no to mention when it fails more than half the time to go where the deep link was pointing. At least with a visual breadcrumb I can step back to my human form and click into…

                            • Adaptive toolbar (ellipse only shown when needed)

                              Make the toolbar adaptive, so that it displays as many icons as can fit in the free space. I.e. the ellipse should disappear on a larger screen and all apps should display, and it should only display when there is not enough room.

                                • Chats should have a "pop-up" notification similar to Skype, or incoming Outlook email.

                                  Have a small notification that appears on the screen when someone is chatting with you. If Team is minimized chats get missed.

                                      • Crashing multiple times a day

                                        It crashed more than 10 times today always with same message like "There was a glitch, we are recovering" and every time I had to re login. I cannot stand this anymore. Please fix this.
