  1. Pop up chat windows

    My company just switched to teams from skype and what I would love to see is a pop up chat window when someone messages you. After my meetings in the morning I'll close out of teams and do my work for the day. Then the next morning when I open it up I discover that someone from head office sent me a message yesterday at 3 pm. The thing is I didn't get a notification or pop up. With skype even when I closed the screen it would say "still running in background" and when someone messaged you it would…

  3. Delink the Return button from the send feature in desktop version

    In the mobile version the enter button/return feature simply creates a new line of text for you to type into
    In the desktop version the enter/return button auto posts / sends the text into the chat channel which can be very annoying when typing out an explanation .
    Suggest enter/return in desktop is not linked to auto post / send or make this a user option in settings to cover off for differnet user requirements

  6. Conversion to PDF, differences between Windows 10 and Windows Server 2016/2019

    Hello,
    we encountered a problem during the conversion of a. doc file to PDF: there are differences in the generated PDF files when created in Windows Server, while in Windows 10 they are OK.
    Please find the attached sample java file that we used to test and output the results of PDF files by the operating system. The source document that we used for the conversion is contained in the document .zip file (sample Doc for Aspose) also.
    The same problem occurs when converting to a different format (.for example, JPG). We also checked the font catalog, and the fonts…

  7. status updating

    we should have the option to choose how long after being inactive on our computer our status changes to away. Even when i am working on my computer, if i am not working in Teams it automatically puts my status to away within 5 minutes and there is no option to change this.

  9. A very useful feature that would help almost everyone would be make a channel/option to see all the homework that you have yet to send

    So, an option where you click and it displays all the assigned homework that you have to send and the homework you forgot to send and already expired, mostly the ones you can still send

  11. Make MS Teams app available on Microsoft Store

    Create a Teams app rather than requiring users to download it from the website, make it just like downloading Skype app from the Store. The website can cater to MacOS users instead.

    Quick deployment for users new to Teams is important.

  16. Better to have separate window for each chat if needed

    Need an option for an opens up a new window for each chat. When we are in a meeting at the same time need to chat with someone outside of the meeting this future will really help full. In current Teams, If we need to chat someone while we are in the meeting, the meeting window going small and chat window will shows. If we have the option to separate the window for each chat it will be really easy.

  19. Better Unpin Experience

    Unpinning a pinned chat would ideally put it at the top of Recent list.

    This will help with accidental unpinning and make repinning immediately easier.

    Maybe the Unpin's datestamp would become the chats datestamp to put it on top of the other chats.

  20. Enable @mentions in comments while editing documents with desktop app

    Currently it's impossible to @mention team members in comments while using the desktop app. It works when editing in the browser, but my team prefers the desktop app.
