  1. 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.

      • 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.

              • Integrate Teams into Win10 People hub

                Would be good to see Teams integrate into the People Hub (part of the latest Win10 Fall update).

                Currently we can see Email (which, frustratingly, doesn't link to Outlook!), People, and Skype (which we're moving away from) but to link directly to teams members to start a chat and schedule a meeting would be very useful.

                • import onenotes

                  It would be really nice if there was an easy way to import OneNote's into the Teams app. In my experience, the current process is clunky and slow. I ended up just copying over all the pages.

                    • 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.

                          So much wasted space - only 8 comments/entries fit at a time. GROSS. look at IRC, get closer to that. This is just wasteful - of screen real estate and users's time.

                          Who came up with this design? Certainly not someone who would actually USE the tool.

                              • INACTIVE with desktop, not just TEAMS app

                                There are still some definite shortcomings in TEAMS. For example, regarding that "real Time feel" the TEAMS client will go "Inactive" while your working in other applications, as opposed to SKYPE only goes inactive when you don't interact with your desktop for "X" duration

                                  • The width of channels panel is hardcoded and it's very tight!

                                    The width of channels panel is hardcoded and it's very tight!
                                    It's really hard e.g. to analyze the code, logs when you are investigating an issue.

                                    Please consider panel's customization for users in desktop app. I believe that most of the people are using a wide screen at work :)

                                    • Customization

                                      Add personalisation just like in SharePoint where you can add your Company logo and look and feel + adding custom style sheets etc.
                                      Would be so much nicer if you can make it more personal to your own companies styling

                                        • 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.
