  1. Ability to enable persistent notifications / alerts for group conversations.

    If you message someone privately via teams they will get a popup, a sound notification and the Icon will flash orange - indicating that a message has arrived.

    We want the ability to be able to turn this level of notification ON for group threads.

    The threads are fairly Quiet and so this will not be intrusive, it would just be WAY more helpful if when we post into a group thread everyone knew about it Right away, rather than adding a Team update and then having to send an email saying "check teams", which kinda defeats the purpose

  2. Cannot hide a pinned conversation

    You cannot "Hide" a pinned conversation. You first have to UnPin it and then hide it. "Hide" is "Hide" it should not matter that it is "Pinned". There should be a "Hide" / "UnHide" icon right after the user's name. See other posts on this icon topic.

  3. Cannot "Unhide" multiple chats from search results

    Once a Chat is hidden, the only way to get it back is to search and then once selected you can "unhide" it. The problem is if that was not the one you wanted, you have to search again, find the one you wanted go through the process again.

    You should be able to select multiple chats from the search results so they all show up in your private chats and then you could unhide them all.

    Chats should have a "hide" / "unhide" icon directly in the private chat display so you do not need to go into the…

  4. Do not display Contacts | Favorites unless the user actually has Favorites

    Screen real-estate is valuable. Taking up space with something that a user doesn't use causes excessive scrolling. Forcing a user to give up space to Contacts | Favorites when they don't use Favorites within Contacts causes loss of productivity, frustrates the user and costs the company real money.

    Do not show "Favorites" under Contacts unless the user actually marks a contact as a Favorite.

  5. Using Teams seems like a move backward

    This is not a idea, this is a comment. Using Teams is a move backward. Going back and forth between chats and looking at different documents is a major pain in the $ss.

    Why can't we have multiple Teams windows open at the sametime? If we are stuck using this awful software at least make it usable.

  7. Alles moet beter

    Betere stabiliteit van de desktop applicatie (hij crash); keuze om bestanden lokaal of in een nieuw scherm te openen; leeslijsten zijn niet praktisch of niet beschikbaar; koppelingen openen zorgt ervoor dat je vorige koppeling verloren gaat; opnames zijn incompleet en omslachtig in gebruik; meldingen zijn opdringerig en bijna niet te onderdrukken; instellingen vanuit organisatie achterhalen is weinig transparant (vooral icm synchronisatie van verschillende platforms zoals outlook en teamleider) ; chat updates komen het ene moment snel binnen maar soms duurt het ook erg lang voor ze binnenkomen

  8. Popups

    Please allow IT Administrators to disable the popup messages for anything. If this application is going to truly be the replacement for Skype For Business (as I've heard), treat it like a business application. I tried going in to my messages and was greeted by a popup notice that I should download the app on my phone. I closed it and went to go select a user, and poof it popped up again immediately.
    This is just a nuisance of a feature that should not be in a messaging platform designed for business use. If I want the app on…

  9. Add ability to open Teams window if closed on Mac desktop client

    If I close the Teams window on the Mac desktop client, there is no way to get it back. I have to quit Teams and re-open it.

  13. Triple click has a random behaviour

    Triple clicking should select the whole line
    It currently also (seemingly randomly) also selects AT LEAST one of:
    - The current message's date
    - The next message's date
    - The whole next message

  16. Horizontal Line Separating Team List or Channels List in Favorites

    I would like to add horizontal lines in different colors to my list of Teams and Channels in Favorites to group them for quick reference. It could just be a line that I can add between two teams or two channels like I would do if I had a red pencil.

  17. Do not show messages or chats on the main screen

    Right now, when I have Teams open in one screen, everybody coming to my desk can see my last chats or teams messages, there is not an option to just go to a Dashboard screen or a blank screen where nobody can see my messages or chats.

  18. Allow Sending emojis, gifs and files to external

    This works on mobile since its active in both tenants but it does not work in the desktop version but if I start a chat in the desktop version and then open it in the mobile version it then starts a chat where gifs and files can be sent.

  20. Teams view filter

    I am a consultant that is visiting multiple clients a week, sometimes a day. I have associates on each site. I usually have 2 SharePoint's set up for each client. One for internal only coordination and one for internal and external (client as members) coordination. When I open Teams App I would like to apply a filter as to which Teams/Groups/Plans are visible so that the client I am visiting can not see on my screen other client information or data. Any thoughts?
