  4. Right Mouse Click to Tag/UnTag User for Status Change

    SFB allows you to right mouse click a user and "tag" them for a status change. Teams feature is buried inside of Settings. This is a feature that is mostly used in an "on-demand" moment because of a time sensitive need to contact that user. Burying the setting inside of Settings greatly inhibits the usefulness of "tagging/untagging" a user.

    Please implement the ability to "tag/untag" a user by right mouse clicking a user anywhere in Teams or the office products.

  5. Unreliable desktop client

    We have deployed MS Teams with SCCM.

    We allow the software to auto update but this currently gives us a few challenges:

    1. Teams client closes multiple times a day, it remains in the notification areas until mouse over and then disappears and must be relaunched.

    2. Teams disappears from the system - presumably because it tries to auto update and fails leaving the user with no Teams install.

    3. A relatively new message in a grey bar at the top of the client notifying the user to update to continue using Team and contact their administrator.

    These behaviours are…

  6. Stop the clickonce userprofile installers! Please!

    Seriously creating a msi, to copy the clickonce **** to the progam files dir is the cheapest and most lazy sollution i have ever seen. I've seen this in smaller companies, but expect a lot better from microsoft.
    You created the msi installer, why not use it? Userprofile installs is not the way forward. Stop it please.

  7. Need a mini/compact version of Teams

    Need a mini/compact version of Teams client and ability to select the type of content (eg: content only, attendees etc like Skype for Business) instead of occupying whole screen

  8. I want to check status messages in bulk

    Even if you set the status message, it does not appear unless you place the cursor on the icon.
    It would be nice if you could view status messages in bulk in the call's contact field.

  9. Go back to skype

    You had to ruin a great idea. There was nothing wrong with Skype. Why did you scrap it with your silly 3rd grade solution?

  13. Integrate the Windows 'Teams' app into Outlook

    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?

  14. Enable full SharePoint navigation

    I've linked to a communiction SharePoint homepage in a tab in teams expecting it to essentially be the full SharePoint experience but it cuts out the navigation and literally just shows the web parts of the home page.

    I want to be able to navigate the SharePoint as normal from here but from some reason Teams cuts this out.

  15. Reduce vast white space in the desktop view

    Reduce vast amount of white space to enable to teams to occupy a small amount of a desktop screen.
    Minimising the text size is not a solution to this
    Have option for latest message to show on top not at the bottom
    Have message alert show actual message or part of it, rather than just alert to message, as in the start of an email, or a tweet, to minimise useless clicking on non-useful messages that show just "new message" where large numbers of people are messaging in teams

  16. Full width chat

  17. We really need "Paste as plain text" in the Teams desktop client

    Please add a "Paste as plain text" option to the right-click menu in all text areas in the Teams desktop client that accept formatted text.

  19. Need to be able to re-size the app on-screen

    I would like to be able to resize the app, the same way that Skype for Business can be thinned down.Teams takes up 1/3 of my screen. With Skype for Business, it could be slimmed down to only take up a small portion.

  20. Tag/Untag RMB and Settings and Visual Indicator of Change

    Currently:
    - You can RMB and click "Notify When User Available"
    - In Settings you can persistently Tag a user for a Change In Status for Available or Offline

    First Issue: There is no visual indicator by the user's name in Recent or Contacts that the user is tagged for status change. This needs to be "fixed" as you may have tagged someone "this morning" or "yesterday" and it no longer is important.

    Assuming the verbiage is literal, here are some other issues and usability considerations:
    - Tagging a user is an On-Demand type of feature. Burying it under Setting/Notification/bottom…
