  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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  7. Retry login when network is available

    On my laptop I'm behind a proxy that requires a vpn connection. When the app starts it can't find an internet connection since I haven't had the time to login to the vpn. My experience is that the app won't retry the login when the network is available, I have to restart the app. Applications like Slack, Outlook and Spotify (or rather most applications) continuosly checks for an available connection and tries to login. Chrome even reloads open tabs when a connection becomes available.

  11. small window view needed - similar to IM

    Right now it's just annoying and clunky. I need something small that doesn't take up a ton of space. Already have tons of windows open on my computer.

  12. notification on desktop app

    Multiple notifications came out from the same chat and there is no way to dismiss the notification other than clicking into the chat one by one. Each line of chat are displayed as separate notification and flooded the right side of screen.

  13. Have 2 Separate Teams Applications Open Simultaneously

    It would be nice to be able to have 2 separate teams application open simultaneously that way I can have one for chatting and one to view a channel. It would make it easier than having to click back and forth between the two to be able to communicate to both. The other option would be to be able to split the application to be able to view Teams and Chat at the same time.

  14. Group Policy Template

    When are the Group Policy Templates going to be available for Microsoft Teams? I want to unify desktop app settings at my company (like disabling Skype Integration) but haven't seen a way to currently achieve that.

  16. Layout Changes

    Allow the layout to be changed vs the fixed layout.

    Even on large displays the layout takes up too much space and much of it is wasted space.

    The navigation tool for the Wiki needs to be able to have a push pin in it so it can stay open so you can navigate without an extra click to open in back up.

  17. html signature mail for windows 10

    Please allow html signatures in windows 10 Mail application.

    The app supports HTML mail naively. It is a pain that the signature is plain text only.

  18. Share My Visual Studio so I can remote Pair Programming.

    I should be able to click a button and Capture my Visual Studio, Git Bash, etc. Once clicked any user in the group can edit, save, copy, etc. This would be useful for Pair Programming. Not a screen capture, a remote desktop for an application.
