  1. Pop out audio and video calls to a separate screen for MacOS

    Lot of times there is need to see what is being presented in a Teams call on one screen (or part of a screen) and still continue to use Teams in another screen.

    Allow users to pop out audio and video calls to a separate screen for MacOS

  2. Edit Displayed User Names

    It would be more convenient if we could customize user display name to allow better identification of individuals. For external contacts, email addresses are currently displayed and cannot be edited to reflect the contact's name.

  7. Keyboard shortcut to toggle Full Screen in meeting

    I would like a shortcut that toggles full screen on and off. The GUI interface to do this is awkward. Full screen is important with someone else is screen-sharing in a meeting, so their screen is not shrunk to an unreadable size.

    (On Microsoft's web page it says to use Ctrl-Shift-F, but on my Teams app that is mapped to "open filter" and there is no mapping for full screen.)

    I am using Teams 1.3.00.3564 on Windows 10.

  11. Keep it extremely simple like Whatsapp or even better like Wechat please!

    The Team window takes a very large screen space; unlike other office communication tools that can be reduced to a size like iPhone instant message.

    Very cumbersome application. Please help to keep it simple like a true messenger.

    Thank you

  13. 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?

  16. Screen share a completely blank desktop to reduce inadvertent private information.

    To help from inadvertently sharing PII forgotten on a cluttered desktop, it would be great to have the option to share a blank desktop. Windows Task View has the ability to create a desktop. There is also the ability to hide desktop icons. Having an option in Teams that quickly sets up this for the user for a screen share would be ideal.

  19. Microsoft teams Desktop should allow to add multiple accounts like pidgin or trillian. The desktop version doesn't allow it as of now.

    Microsoft teams Desktop should allow to add multiple accounts like pidgin or trillian. The desktop version doesn't allow it as of now. Like I should be able to add client and my own company Microsoft account in teams and should be able to communicate with both seamlessly. This is a priority requirement for people like me who are in consulting world and working with client. As of now I use client teams in desktop and my company teams in browser ( but it sucks).
