  1. Remove the emoticon popup when the mouse hovers over a message

    A recent update changed the desktop app such that hovering over a message pops up a selection of emoticons, presumably to react to a message. I think any thinking individual would appreciate this distraction not being there. I sincerely hope its removed in a near future update.

  2. 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.

  3. Cockpit

    In my "Team" I want to be able to create a channel tab that provides links to several other tools and/or websites like a cockpit using tiles. Each tile has an assigned hyperlink that takes me to the tool/website or it opens up in teams directly (preferred). With a hover-over I can see a short description of the tile.

  5. 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.

  6. Cannot hide a pinned conversation

    You cannot "Hide" a pinned conversation. You first have to UnPin it and then hide it. "Hide" is "Hide" it should not matter that it is "Pinned". There should be a "Hide" / "UnHide" icon right after the user's name. See other posts on this icon topic.

  7. Option to control default action of [Edit] button on Word/Excel/PowerPoint viewer

    I want to control default action of [Edit] button on Word/Excel/PowerPoint viewer in Teams. [Edit] button default action is "edit in Teams" now, but I want to set default action to "edit in Word/Excel/PowerPoint(desktop client)".

  8. Allow remote control to work after UAC prompt

    When you start screen sharing session and this is happening regardless of OS platform. When user that is sharing screen is on Windows machine if at any point during screen share user get prompted by UAC to execute something as administrator, anyone who is remotely controlling machine at that point loses control. After this prompt remote user can still move mouse but cannot click anything and what has to happen is you have to stop sharing and start new screen share.

    What should happen is if you remote controlling someone's machine through desktop sharing and UAC comes up, after that…

  9. Add a screenshot button

    Add a feature to take screenshots directly from the chat window. Like, when you are chating with someone and you need to send a screenshot to the person, you just have to click on the button, like the file, calendar buttons for an example and then MS Team should allow to take screenshot of MS team incase someone wants to take screenshots of MS Team it's self, or if someone wants to minimize MS team, the minimize button should allow to minimize MS team, and then again re-enable the screenshot activity, once desired screenshot is taken, there should be a…

  11. Broadcast / Announce to all Teams users on Teams APP

    Teams is a hub of O365 tools, then sometimes we would like to inform current trouble status or new feature to all Teams users at once. If we can show announce banner on top of Teams app, like under search window, it would be more helpful for all Teams users and Teams admins.

  12. Desktop Icon Creation Duplication with OneDrive Known Folder Move

    In a shared computer environment, an admin may choose to install the Team Machine Wide Installer MSI.

    Teams is then installed at every user logonif it doesn't exist.

    "%ProgramFiles%\Teams Installer\Teams.exe --checkInstall --source=default"

    Is put in the following key

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    This presents an issue when using OneDrive Known Folder Move. When a new user logs on to a PC, OneDrive has its own installation and update process. The Teams installer will start and finish before OneDrive has installed, updated and initiated Known Folder Move for the new user profile.

    Teams will create a desktop icon in the %USERPROFILE%\Desktop shell folder. As…

  14. Horizontal Line Separating Team List or Channels List in Favorites

    I would like to add horizontal lines in different colors to my list of Teams and Channels in Favorites to group them for quick reference. It could just be a line that I can add between two teams or two channels like I would do if I had a red pencil.

  16. Better access to hidden group chats

    When dealing with 1-to-1 Chats, you have the option to "Hide" them within the UI. When you initiate a chat with a person after it has been hidden, the history is still there.

    When dealing with Group Chats, you also have the option to "Hide" the chat within the UI. However, the only way to get back to that Group Chat is to start a new chat, and add all previous chat participants back in, at which point, the group chat history is displayed. If you are unable to recall every participant that was in that Group Chat, there is…

  17. Add button to take a screenshot and send the screenshot in a channel conversation or chat

    When I am in a chat or conversation and I need to take a screenshot and send it, it would be nice to be able to just click a button, take the screenshot and send it as part of the conversation or chat without having to leave Teams.

  19. A separate automatic installer? Is this microsoft or Nigergian Prince LLC

    Stop making this as annoying to uninstall as malware. A separate application called Teams Machine-Wide Installer? Malware. Automatically reinstalling and launching on startup after each uninstall is how you ruin the reputation of Microsoft. This is disgusting.

  20. Make Contacts its own page WITHOUT the last chat in the background. Able to set as the default page to leave open all day - like Skype did.

    Teams takes up too much of the screen when not in use. Skype was much better with its list of My Group and Favorites, so you could see status at a glance... AND it could be a very narrow profile open all day on the screen. Teams default footprint is TOO BIG.

    AND don't display the last chat in the background!!

    Give function to end a Chat and give a clear background so the last chat isn't sitting in the background hours after you are done - this is extremely annoying and a problem in an open office where people…
