  2. 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.

  3. macOS native keyboard shortcut is overridden

    macOS has its native keyboard shortcuts that are helpful for text editing. However, some of them doesn't work on Microsoft Teams.


    • Control-A: Move to the beginning of the line or paragraph.

    • DOESN'T work. Instead, all texts are selected (the same as Command-A)

    • Control-B: Move one character backward.

    • DOESN'T work. Instead, selected texts become bold (the same as Command-B)

    Control-A is quite important for me because it is the very common shortcut in Linux/Unix environments. Refer "Moving faster" section on this link for the details.
    http://teohm.com/blog/shortcuts-to-move-faster-in-bash-command-line/

    For all native keyboard shortcuts on macOS, please refer the following official document.

  6. 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 :)

  7. Improve Skype for Business

    What an absolute state you've left Skype for Business in. You don't even check the huge amount of negative feedback you have on the forum for it.

    You've focused all your efforts on developing a new product while your current product is just ignored, so in the meantime there is nothing to fill the gap.

    Fix Skype for Business please.

  9. Ability to view architectural files in the desktop client. (Revit, AutoCAD, Sketchup)

    If we could view architectural files even if read only it would be absolutely amazing.

  10. Microsoft Teams Notifications position

    Add an option to let user change the position of the Mictrosoft Teams notifications on MacOS. Currently it's only on top right which is so annoying, because it overlaps the other apps important buttons!

  11. 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

  12. Views are not saved on the desktop appplication

    The views are not saved on the Teams desktop. If change a view on planner or if a sort my folders by name, size or modification, the last view mode is not saved.
    I think you should go back the last view mode you have used.
    Thank you

  13. 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.

  14. Share from Microsoft Edge

    I want to share webs from Microsoft Edge to Microsoft Teams.
    Microsoft Edge's SHARE button can share current web page to some APP, easy, quick way.
    so, I hope to share web pages from Microsoft Edge's share button to Microsoft Teams channels.

  15. External Persistent chat priority alert

    It would be very useful to be able to assign a different type of alert for different persistent chats. For example:

    We use Skype's persistent chat for remote teams during critical events.

    the notification windows & alert sounds for chats with a higher priority should look and sound differently so that they stand out from other chats.

    This would allow us to train users to respond accordingly and increase our efficiency when responding to critical events whose responders are in various remote locations that are contributing to and participating in the event response.

  16. add more apps

    In the desktop app, I should be able to add more items to the left side of the app panel.

    Unless the option is already there, and I am merely missing it.

  18. Make it easier to Minimize or resize the favorites column

    The Favorites Column (I believe it is called) is way wider than I need and finding the expand option on the tab I was working was not intuitive at all. The ability to resize the width of that column would be very helpful.
