  1. Ability to prevent auto-start persistantly and programmatically using TAC/Group Policy

    See MSTCommunity request here -

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/How-to-Prevent-Teams-from-Auto-Launch/m-p/730658#M34150

    Even though autostart can be prevented upon installation a single time (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/teams-install) and then turned off manually within the desktop client, there is a need by some businesses to ensure that the Desktop client does not auto-start at any time and yet be able to enable this programmatically via TAC/Group Policy without having to jump in users desktop client to turn it off.

    Is there any chance to Allow Reply to the previous message on Desktop App, as we have the flexibility to reply on mobile app?

  6. Edit Displayed User Names

    It would be more convenient if we could customize user display name to allow better identification of individuals. For external contacts, email addresses are currently displayed and cannot be edited to reflect the contact's name.

  8. Force a specific image as the default Teams custom background

    While I can now change my teams background to an image I specify (by coping it into this folder: %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads), our company would like to set a default image for every teams user on their PC. Doesn't seem possible yet to do this. But I was thinking if we set a group policy to drop the image we want in everyone’s Teams 'Uploads' folder, then perhaps there is a registry setting in teams that we could force to use our custom image?

  14. Automatically hide video window during desktop sharing

    When sharing your desktop, the small video window should automatically hide or minimize. This small video window (since shown on the shared desktop) is seen by all attendees, but never shows the presenter (only other attendees are shown, as they speak).

  17. New Post button on dekstop

    Just like on the mobile app: add a click to the New Post button starting a new post, so that users can clearly understand the difference between Reply button and New Post button and avoid new conversations that are intended to be replies

  19. Makes Teams Chat more Like Skype

    Skype for Business has been honed in and perfected over the past decade. The Grouping - the ability to have it only in the side (not taking up your entire screen), the ability to automatically pop out conversations, the compact size, etc. Teams simply ignores all the virtures of Skype. Make the Chat feature in Teams completely pop-outed so the contact list looks just like Sype. Allow the list to be much more compact. Allow the conversations to automatically pop out. The idea behind teams is fine - the execution is very disappointing.

  20. render email hyperlinks in desktop/web client

    This works in the mobile app. When writing out an email address, either automatically hyperlink it or allow for the ability to hyperlink it in the formatting
