  1. Fix Edit in Word/Excel - Currently not working

    When you have saved an excel/ word file in files section in teams then you click on the file and edit. The edit in word/excel online works but the edit in word/excel does nothing and does not open word/excel to edit the document. Desktop teams version is Microsoft Teams Version 1.0.00.10302 (64-bit). It was last updated on 4/21/17.

  4. Would you supply screen shot function?

    Would you supply screen shot function?It's very useful for team members quick communication and it's should be a frequently-used function. I just don't understand how it could be missed in both Skype and Teams.

  5. Float on Top

    Constantly switching to the Desktop Client's window is incredibly annoying. It desperately needs a thin border, float on top state.

  6. Support back/forward mouse buttons in app

    It would be great if the desktop app (I'm using Windows) would support back/forward navigation using assigned mouse buttons (usually thumb buttons). This works in web browsers by default, but the desktop app requires clicking the back/forward arrows in the top-left of the interface.

  9. Teams not using WIndows 10 Features (ex. Pin to Start, People Bar, Cortana, etc)

    Teams not using WIndows 10 Features (ex. Pin to Start, People Bar, Cortana, etc)

    I should be able to pin any item from Teams to the Start Screen
    - ex. Person I am chatting with

          Group I am chatting with
    
    Teams / Channel / Favorites.

    The fact is there is nothing in Teams that uses the Start Menu except for the app launching. As a Microsoft product I expect Teams to be in the forefront in taking advantage of the Windows 10 features.

    I should be able to pin my Teams contacts in the People Bar. I should be able…

  10. Would like the ability to import data to an existing SharePoint List

    There is a feature to import data to a new SharePoint List. Would like to expand this to allow the import of new data to an existing SharePoint List.

    I found a 3rd part add-in for this functionality, but our company does not allow that.

  11. Logout

    The app logs me out every time i want to use it. The frustrating thing is that my account is linked to a different phone number than the one i use, so i can’t use the app until i get home. There is no other way to log in, no other security steps except for this one. Really unsatisfied

  12. windows-wide shortcut to start or answer phone calls

    I want to switch fully from S4B to MSTeams. In S4B, I use PhoneTools from Estos, to answer phone calls with a single keystroke or to start a phone call. when I have marked a phone number and press the defined hotkey. See: https://www.estos.com/products/phonetools

    So: You should implement the option for a windows wide shortcut/hotkey to start or answer phone calls.

  13. Stay unread till pressed read botton

    When I go to Activity and press one of the new mention will automatically mark read on another thread's mention in the same channel which losts my attention. It is good to have a READ botton on the mention itself to manually mark as read, especially the mention was @ to me.

  14. Please stop automatically collapsing the Section and Page list - it drives me mad - thanks

    If there is sufficient screen space, don't automatically collapse the list of Sections and Pages. This should be a User decision, a simple Pin/Unpin would do. Thanks

  15. add planner dashboard

    would like to add planner icon under files or in the same nav

    would like to be able to manage all my plans across varying teams and channels , additionally would like to see my "todo" list from outlook in this view

    to create a centralized screen to work from

    having to jump into so many different planners to check for work to do is counter productive, and jumping into the web portal is not a very attractive solution, especially if we're aiming to keep users in the teams application

  16. Would be nice if when changing to a chat screen Message box would gain focus

    this would allow quicker access to type messages.

    This is how other chat platforms have operated, my default behavior is to switch to a chat window and start typing... but I'm then usually triggering hot keys.

    I would like to be able to go into a chat window and immediately be able to start typing without clicking the "Type a new message" box.

  18. what big wide this window is!

    The view window is too wide. It should be made to enable to change to thin window size by user.

  20. Adjustable Columns When Attaching Files

    When attaching a file in teams, I cannot adjust the Name, Modified, etc. column widths. This is frustrating when picking between files of similar long names.

    For instance, we might have 2 files called:
    "[Client Name] Project Questionnaire English"
    "[Client Name] Project Questionnaire Spanish"

    This will result in 2 files that look the same when attaching in Teams: "[Client Name] Project Questionnaire...". I can't even see the full name by hovering over the name. Very frustrating!
