  1. Teams is great but needs to adopt a one-hotkey-to-rule-them-all paradigm similar to Slack's `cmd+k`

    Teams is great but needs to adopt a one-hotkey-to-rule-them-all paradigm similar to Slack's `cmd+k`. The current setup seems to have context sensitive hotkeys, and I can't always remember which ones to use where. I want to push one shortcut, type [part of] the name of the location I want to get to. It should go there regardless of my current location (can't get from chat to teams this way) and regardless of my destination.

    * one key to bring up keyboard navigation
    * UI quickly suggests chats, teams, channels, files, etc that have my text in them.

    • compact view for calling people

      The default skype view is a list of people, with presence and other info, for me to call / check my voice / check presence, etc.

      Since Teams will be the new telephony interface, Teams also needs a view like this.

      • 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?

        • Group conversations

          It would be great if you could add websites to a group conversation just like you can in a one on one conversation.

          • Teams is the DUMBEST calling app ever on Windows DESKTOP

            This NEEDS fixing ASAP.

            On the desktop, I hear ringing. I click on Teams. Nothing visible. Nothing in notication area. Finally I click through the users until I see under ONE SPECIFIC USER that there is a call answer option.

            This is user design where the goal is to MAKE LIFE SO HARD NOONE WANTS TO USE IT.

            Please change teams so when ringing, you can at least see the ringing ANY TIME you click on the app. Even better is if a notification comes up in Windows to just answer the call.

            • 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.

              • 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.

                • Support for extended characters in chat

                  In other Office applications (OneNote, Word) it is possible to insert extended characters through combinations of Ctrl + symbol + letter or combinations Alt + numeric symbols. In addition to this there is the possibility to use Insert Symbol. Currently none of these options seem to exist in Teams, so extended characters cannot be used in chat other than by copy/paste from another application.

                  • 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 :).

                    • Problems sharing desktop

                      We have been actively using Teams for the last 4 weeks, I have received a few reports of users being unable to share desktops whilst in a call, the option is available, but when they click the button, nothing happens, no error messages or warnings. After hanging up and re-connecting they are then able to share desktops. Has anyone else had this issue, apologies if this is the incorrect place to raise this issue.

                      • BUG: It is possible for 2 users to call each other and the calls don't join

                        2 users - call each other. Both are ringing. But you cannot see the other person's answer button because your screen shows that it is calling.

                        Expected action - calls join or answer button visible to answer a call when calling.

                        • 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.

                            • Half of my screen goes missing

                              sometimes it scrolls down and I get a gigantic footer that takes half of my screen. The upper half still shows the content but when i scroll only the upper part scrolls the content. I have to ctrl +R to fix the problem temporary.

                              I can share a screenshot if that helps...

                                Thanks for sharing the feedback. Could you please share some screenshots of what you are experiencing when you scroll? Also would appreciate if you could call out is it happening on Web or Desktop?

                              • resize the team list column to custom size

                                the column that list the different teams should be able to be resized to user liking. I understand some apps let you maximize the screen but then to switch tabs and whatnot you have to minimize to switch to another one.

                                • Compact contact view

                                  Add a "Compact contact view" where only the person's name is shown, not the start of the conversation.
                                  This would allow the user to see more than 20 contacts at a time without scrolling (on a regular, high-res screen).

                                  • Configure app start-up behavior when install Teams desktop app

                                    I want disable auto-start option after the installation of Teams desktop app.

                                    IT Admins would like users to start using Teams app after the announcement of Teams. IT Admins are planning to install Teams app to the users' machines silently. With current behavior, Teams apps are launched automatically, and users will get confused by unknown application being launched. The customer wants to users to start Teams app on their own after IT Admins have made announcements about it.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Screenshare Drops during Meetings when Moving Between Applications

                                          When share desktop is used during a meeting, participants continue to see the old screen when the presenter switches to a different application. This happens irrespective of the application or whether the move is to/from MS Teams and an application e.g. moving from PowerPoint to a web browser or from Word to MS Teams. The workaround is for the presenter to stop presenting and then start to share their desktop again by selecting the relevant window. This isn't a great experience for the participants and breaks the flow of the meeting/presentation.
