  2. Enable UI Customization

    My Outlook Contacts File includes many business, so there are no first/last names included in the record. Consequently, when I click the Contacts button in Teams I get a long list of phone numbers that are meaningless because you're defaulting to a presentation of name and title. Let US choose what columns to present and how to organize these panels.

  3. consolidated view

    Need to get Consolidated view, like StaffHub used to have. For example, we use this for time off requests. If we have 20 employees, but only 3 are off a given week, we would like to have a view where only the 3 that are off would display. No need to display empty calendar entries that are not scheduled.

    If there is nothing scheduled, then hide that name from the view. Like StaffHub used to do.

  4. Taskbar Icon similar to Outlook and Visio in color and shape

    I use tiny taskbar icons on the desktop and Teams in color and shape is too similar to Outlook and Visio when all are open. Can you be more creative?

  5. Install to Program Files instead of appdata due to blocking EXEs from other locations

    We are implementing AppLocker to block ALL EXEs from running from other locations other than Windows and Program Files. We know we could make an exception, however it is still a vulnerability as users can still alter data in the appdata. In addition, for every user it will have an individual install. I understand the ease of use and profile based configuration that Teams is geared towards, however we would like BOTH options for enterprise and education environments.

  6. Add an option box for channel e-mail creation and properties

    When you create a teams channel, an e-mail is automatically created for it.

    But for some channels there may not be the need to have an e-mail address and for some other channels, there may be the need to change the e-mail properties.

    Currently (Apr. 2019) if you want to remove an e-mail address for a channel or if you want to modify the e-mail properties for a channel, you can do it only after the creation of the channel.

    A useful feature should be to add an option box during the channel creation to choose either to create or…

  8. Repeated crashes of desktop client during startup without any error feedback. Thus cannot solve. Will NOT recommend this to anyone.

    I cannot imagine all this crashing (also reported quite frequently during original launch) is actually caused by something very serious. I get the impression that an error is not properly ignored dragging down with it the entire epplication.
    Idea is to refactor the error handling inside the application to only exit on serious errors.

  11. Change status when holding cursor over Teams icon in task bar

    At one point, I could put my cursor over the Teams icon and from there change my status from away to... in one click. But, I usually have to open Teams and then do several more clicks to change my status.

  13. Windows app should notify me of new chats/messages even when minimised

    Recently the desktop app has not usually notified me of new chats/messages when it is minimised to the system notification area.

    When I restore the window it checks for new messages within a few seconds.

  14. Chat entries on the go!

    When typing out a message then locking the PC before sending. Sync the text to phone so you can finish edit and send.

  16. Chatting would be easier to read if my answers appeared just under the other persons and not jogged over to the right.

    Maybe you could give people the option to have it appear as it is now or more left justified like when you’re writing a document.

  17. client auto update

    How does the teams desktop client auto update in an enterprise environment? My management is concerned in a ~10K user environment if everyone signed on at the same time in the morning and a client update is available, that it will saturate our ISP connection if 10k folks are trying to pull an 80mb update package. Can you please describe how this mitigated? delivery optimization like Windows 10 can achieve for its updates? or randomized updating of the clients to not all update at once?

  18. Using Teams Offline

    MULTIPLE USERS reporting offline needs:


    Generally want to use Teams offline:

    If I am offline it would be great to browse through Teams and Channels in case I have to lookup some informations.

    Also viewing the latest notes in "Notes" on teams would be great.

    It would be enough to have "Read only" - for the moment my Teams app does not even open when I am offline

    Compared on my mobile - I can read all posts while I am offline.


    Edit while offline:

    just been using teams wiki to take and share notes in a meeting. when the…
