  1. Go back to skype

    You had to ruin a great idea. There was nothing wrong with Skype. Why did you scrap it with your silly 3rd grade solution?

  2. So far not happy AT ALL with Teams/Skype debacle. Syncing is happening, Teams won't finish installing on some systems, many messages missed

    Need to fix the issues with Teams not completing installs, messages getting lost between Skype and Teams users, and the list goes on. There appear to be serious issues getting Teams rolled out on PCs where Skype for Business is installed. In some cases Teams gets installed, but can't configure, and closes itself when it tries to open. Teams effects the Skype interface to the Contact groups no longer appear, and leaves user with no way to continue reaching out, as Skype gets broken and Teams won't start.

  4. Bring the Android UI to Windows (and Mac) Desktop (a new take on the "compact view" request)

    I really like Teams, but the one reason I still keep Skype for Business running is the small window size. It occurred to me while using Teams on my Android phone that there is already an ideal solution to this issue. Put a toggle into the desktop app to allow the use of the android style layout that shows the Teams tools that cover 90% of my needs (chat and team browser tab) in a window that is roughly equal to a Skype conversation window. Then allow me to toggle back to the full desktop view when I need to…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. Fix Copy/Paste format in Teams

    When you copy a json or an xml from a chat on a notepad, the format is broken completely. Add line breaks, spaces everywhere when the chat is correct.

  9. Screen sharing multiple monitors

    Our company uses 3 or monitors per work station. We used to be able to share our screens with Skype but Teams only allows us to share 1 screen at a time. Would this eventually change?

  10. 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…

  11. Include policy settings applied to user in diag logs

    It would be a great troubleshooting tool if the list of service policies applied to a user's Microsoft Teams client are recorded in the MS Teams client logs (ctrl+alt+shift+1). Meetings Policies, Messaging Policies, App Policies, Teams Upgrade policies etc.

  12. 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…

  13. Need to be able to make the teams window whatever size you want it to be.

    Would like to be able to make the teams window narrower, like you can with skype you can make it as big or small as you want.

  14. Reduce vast white space in the desktop view

    Reduce vast amount of white space to enable to teams to occupy a small amount of a desktop screen.
    Minimising the text size is not a solution to this
    Have option for latest message to show on top not at the bottom
    Have message alert show actual message or part of it, rather than just alert to message, as in the start of an email, or a tweet, to minimise useless clicking on non-useful messages that show just "new message" where large numbers of people are messaging in teams

  17. Desktop Icon Creation Duplication with OneDrive Known Folder Move

    In a shared computer environment, an admin may choose to install the Team Machine Wide Installer MSI.

    Teams is then installed at every user logonif it doesn't exist.

    "%ProgramFiles%\Teams Installer\Teams.exe --checkInstall --source=default"

    Is put in the following key

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    This presents an issue when using OneDrive Known Folder Move. When a new user logs on to a PC, OneDrive has its own installation and update process. The Teams installer will start and finish before OneDrive has installed, updated and initiated Known Folder Move for the new user profile.

    Teams will create a desktop icon in the %USERPROFILE%\Desktop shell folder. As…

  19. 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.
