    • Lighning fast client needed

      Either make a lite version of the client or allow configuration of current client. The client has the main issue VS Code also has: Probably based on electron and therefore EXTREMELY slow especially starting up. I have uninstalled it because it is too slow. You need to make a faster experience for just writing with people. Otherwise it will never be able to replace skype which is MUCH faster. People dont want to wait. They want fast experience which teams doesn't deliver at all currently.

      • 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...

          • Will Teams have the ability to show who is online and offline on any given channel?

            If Teams can add an option to show member status on a optional right side channel. This would be very helpful. As it is right now, you have no idea who is on or offline or if the correct people are included in a channel.

              • Conversation searching needs to be improved

                I found an instance where I needed to go back to a point in time with a conversation with. colleague of mine. I remembered some of the details so I used those to search. I found one of the messages from that time frame, but when clicking on it there is not an option to jump to that point in time. When you click “go to conversation” it just takes you to your chat with that person and the bottom of the transcript. That’s not helpful. My only other option is to scroll back up to that date/time, but since…

                  • 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.

                    • 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?

                      • 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.

                        • 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.

                            • Making the dekstop install not so buggy

                              I have had to install, uninstall, and reinstall both the 32 and 64 versions of Teams on my desktop at least 4 times now. It will work for a day maybe 2 at the most and then go through a spiral of trying to login, closing the program, and trying to login again. This cycle would repeat for an entire 8 hour work day if I didn't force shut down the program. I can't in good conscience roll this out to even a test team in the company if they can't get the download to function properly

                                Thanks for sharing information. Would you mind sharing your machine spec and names of any major software you are running on it (Office, VSO, etc.) so that we could try to recreate similar machine/environment and see if we can repro the issue?

                                Appreciate your inputs!

                                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?

                                  Currently this method is not viable for a RDS environment such as Citrix or Horizon View.

                                  • 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).

                                      Messages get lost, and hard to search the conversation. if user can quickly search by keyword, and messages load faster, it would be great

                                      • Microsoft Teams - Include Downloads Manager

                                        When downloading multiple, large files - the current Teams desktop client DOES NOT show a 'progress bar'...only a toast notification when the files have finished downloading.

                                        Include a "Downloads" or "Download Manager" button on the left side that shows downloads in progress, and that allows incomplete downloads to be 're-downloaded'.

                                        At this time, there is no way for me to know if everything downloaded without comparing files in my 'Downloads' folder to the files in the channel (slow, inefficient).

                                        • Slow interface

                                          Lazy loading for chat history is implemented quite bad and without any local cache. It's quite challanging to search among older conversations.
