  1. Support for extended characters in chat

    In other Office applications (OneNote, Word) it is possible to insert extended characters through combinations of Ctrl + symbol + letter or combinations Alt + numeric symbols. In addition to this there is the possibility to use Insert Symbol. Currently none of these options seem to exist in Teams, so extended characters cannot be used in chat other than by copy/paste from another application.

  2. Improved URL handling in chat

    When URLs are copied/pasted into chat, followed by more text, the URL is converted to a hyperlink. In some cases some of the characters following the URL are included in the hyperlink. Related to this: when URLs are copied from other Office applications (OneNote, Word) this sometimes results in all of the chat message being underlined (although not actually being a hyperlink).

  3. Modern Authentication

    A message always comes up saying "modern authentication has failed". I close this window and the app signs in.
    Can there just be an option to disable "modern authentication".
    The regular sign in works :).

  4. Nice tool for team collaboration, however desktop sharing seem to be missing.

    Include desktop sharing capability and other existing Skype for business features if it is really true that Teams will replace SFB.

  5. Problems sharing desktop

    We have been actively using Teams for the last 4 weeks, I have received a few reports of users being unable to share desktops whilst in a call, the option is available, but when they click the button, nothing happens, no error messages or warnings. After hanging up and re-connecting they are then able to share desktops. Has anyone else had this issue, apologies if this is the incorrect place to raise this issue.

  7. Respect open -g to launch in background on macOS

    The macOS native client ignores the -g parameter in open -g and always launches the app into the foreground, stealing focus. That is, open -g /Applications/Microsoft\ Teams.app should open Teams in the background, and doesn't.

  9. Desktop icon keeps coming back

    Seems like whenever Teams does an auto-update, a shortcut is always put on my desktop.

    Stop. Doing. This.

  10. 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.

  11. Use standard mouse pointer for title bar buttons.

    In the desktop app, the mouse pointer changes to a hyperlink hand when hovering above the title bar buttons (minimize, close, back, etc.). This isn't consistent with any other app I've seen, so it disrupts the expected user experience. Please change to the standard mouse pointer.

  12. desktop app not reconnecting

    Desktop app does not do a very good at reconnecting if it drops connection to wireless or network and then reconnects. It will try a couple of times, but then fails.

  13. Layout Changes

    Allow the layout to be changed vs the fixed layout.

    Even on large displays the layout takes up too much space and much of it is wasted space.

    The navigation tool for the Wiki needs to be able to have a push pin in it so it can stay open so you can navigate without an extra click to open in back up.

  14. On Premise Support or Product

    Would be great if Microsoft could release this product on premise. So companies with local IT can use this great software.

  16. 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.

  17. Microsoft Teams windows does not have a frame around so it blends into other windows underneath. It is more than annoying!

    Microsoft Teams windows does not have a frame around so it blends into other windows underneath. It is more than annoying! Windows 10 as an operating system should enforce a frame around every window/page and the frame thickness should be set by user. (Looks like currently only color can be set and theme involves a whole slew of other settings.)

  18. Please enable file send without message send

    When you want to send a file you attach a file to a chat. It is annoying to have to type a message before the send button works. It should be possible to attach file then send.

  19. Window Actions Like Minimize and Close Are Sluggish

    There is a noticeable delay >1 second between clicking Minimize or Close and having the action be executed by the window.

    It's super annoying.

  20. BUG: It is possible for 2 users to call each other and the calls don't join

    2 users - call each other. Both are ringing. But you cannot see the other person's answer button because your screen shows that it is calling.

    Expected action - calls join or answer button visible to answer a call when calling.
