  2. Teams desktop app does not have locked out option

    MS teams desktop app does not have locked out option to lock teams app. It is very easy to see chat history by someone else when you leave your PC. So, I have to lock pc or log out teams every time. It is very highly personal security risk. Why MS teams doesn't have this feature but other app has?

  6. Please add option to add multiple accounts in Teams as is allowed on the mobile app.

    It is great to just click a button to switch between accounts just like the mobile app has. If it can be worked in the mobile app, why not allow this in the desktop app? This will save users time from having to log out & in between accounts when needed.

  7. Keep users windows in a stack and replace inactive window with last active user.

    When a user with a video window drops out, their window changes to a circle with initials. I suggest replacing that window the last user that was replaced due to inactivity. This maximizes the window utilization and continues to keep the most active users on screen.

  11. 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…

  12. Mute from the desktop app when connected to phone

    The feature I would like to have is to mute myself with a click of a button in the desktop app when I am connected via my phone, as it works today, the app shows me as permanently muted and I have to mute/unmute myself directly on my phone, the muted status in Teams Desktop doesn't change regardless.

  13. Navigation from Teams to Chat and back to Teams should put you back in same channel

    If you


    1. go to some channel in the Teams view,

    2. navigate to the Activity view,

    3. navigate back to the Teams view,

    you can end up in a completely different channel that you started out with. Besides being confusing on its own, this adds some amount of risk that you end up inputting messages in the wrong channel.

  15. Teams notifications on Windows should be available in the notification center.

    When using the Windows desktop Teams app, notifications appear in their own separate pop-up Window, then disappear. They do not show up in the Notification Center slide-in. This means if you miss seeing the notification when it first pops-up, there is no way to access that notification after the fact.

    The Teams desktop app should leverage the existing Notification Center on Windows, including the momentary notifications when they initially appear and then be available afterward in the Notification Center.

  18. For making yourself appear "away, unavail, et. al." it would be nice to have a timer pop up for choosing time length

    In the evening I like to appear "away" if I am working but I forget to reset it. It would be nice to have the default automatically set to "available" upon first use after midnight or to have a time pop-up to select amount of time to appear away

  20. Turn off Spell Check for pop-out chat windows

    Un-checking the setting for "Enable spell check" will disable spell checking in the main window, but spell checking does not get disabled in pop-out chat windows.
    Please fix this setting so that it works properly throughout the entire program.
