  1. Preferred IM Client

    MS Teams Client hijacks the PreferredIMClient setting when tenant is in "Teams Only" mode. This is problematic for companies who use multiple IM clients (e.g. Cisco Jabber).

    Please prevent the MS Teams client from hijacking the
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\IM Providers\DefaultIMApp value when in "Teams Only" mode.

    A "FindTime" aside:
    We needed to change our tenant to "Islands" mode to prevent the PreferredIMClient hijack behavior. In "Islands" mode, the FindTime "online meeting" option does not auto-schedule Teams meetings. In order to get FindTime "online meetings" to work, we have to be in "Teams Only" mode. We decided to break FindTime to fix the…

  3. Teams stores too many entries in Windows Credential Manager

    One action we have been directed to do in troubleshooting Teams launch issues is to clear all saved passwords for the Teams app which are located in the Windows Credential Manager.
    Currently, Teams has over 20 entries here! Removing any of them and relaunching teams makes them all get created again.
    All the entries here make troubleshooting login issues a real pain, and these need to be consolidated and simplified.

  5. Teams access to Exchange O365 mailbox and data

    I would like to see Teams be a full replacement for Outlook.

    Customers should not have to switch between Teams and Outlook to manage all of their communication, calendaring, communication, and collaboration.

    I am not looking for better integration between Teams and Outlook. Instead I would like Teams to build a better email and calendar experience outside Outlook.

  7. Separate teams/chat, calendar, calls, and files into separate executables

    Having all of these disparate workflows, which are already largely independent of each other and only slightly interconnected, is needless bloat, wasting space when I only need to use one, and making things more difficult when I need to use more than one (eg. read a chat while in a call). It's like if Word, Powerpoint, and Excel all lived in one window and I couldn't look at more than one at the same time, but also had an always-visible sidebar telling me the others exist. These should be in separate executables.

  8. Cannot give control to share

    I cannot allow a user in my contacts to control my screen while sharing my desktop. It states that Hardware acceleration is turned off, but there is currently no easy way to turn it back on. This is critical if we are being forced into this.

  9. Chat Timestamp Uses 12 hour Clock even if Desktop is configured for 24 hour clock

    Chat/Channel Conversations seem to use the 12 hour clock (1:34 PM) even if the system/workstation clock is set to use 24 hour clock (13:34). Syncing the time stamp to use the preferred time format (either from the OS or from an application option) would help prevent confusion in some circumstances.

  11. Startup minimized to task bar only AND don't restore when right clicking

    I am finding 2 annoyances after I moved to Teams away from Skype for Business:

    1: In skype or business I was able to have the app not only startup in the background, but minimized the task bar with no window..

    2: I can manually get teams into that state by having it stay running when closed and closing teams, however anytime I RIGHT click on the tray iccon to access the menu, it auto restores.. it should only auto restore upon either left clicking the icon or triggering action via right click but the right click action should itself…

  13. forwarding to virtual user agent (auto attendant or call queue)

    User should be able to set a forwarding to a virtual user (auto attendant / call queue) in the desktop client. Currently these virtual users cannot be found (or entered) in Settings/Calls/Call answering rules in the desktop client.

    In the mobile clients (both Android and iOS) the virtual users can however be found and used to forward calls to.

    Functionality is required as many organizations, like ours, like calls to be always answered even if the user is not able to or does not timely answer a call, instead of using voicemail.

  14. Criar a na vesão Business a opção de customização da página, para que o ambiente virtual tenha a identidade visual da empresa.

    Se fosse possível a escolha de cor na área de trabalho do Teams e a inserção de banners e logomarca, ele poderia ser utilizado como plataforma oficial de comunicação externa, sem a necessidade de desenvolvimento de um sistema próprio para comunicação com o cliente, mesmo que carregasse em conjunto marcas e símbolos da Microsoft e do Teams.

  15. Elevate Screenshare Sessions

    Having the ability to elevate permissions during a screensharing session, like Bomgar/LogMeIn, would be quite handy as an IT support tool. It would help with the adoption rate and efficiency.

    Thanks for listening and keep up the great work!

  19. A cool feature would be so that you can Pin a chat message especially in a group chat so that it doe

    In the desktop app it would be cool if you could pin a message in a group chat so it doesn't get lost. If you want everyone to see it. Pin it to the side or something maybe.

  20. Please shrink the window so it takes up less space on the desktop, please!!!

    please shrink the window down to widget size like Skype was. This takes up too much desktop real estate.
