  1. Appear offline

    In Skype I was used to (occasionally) use the 'Appear offline' functionality.

    Apart from 'Appear away' Skype has a last option that also leaves your status indicator empty/white.

    I find this especially helpful when you really need to focus and want to 'slightly divert' colleagues to send you an email who otherwise might have contacted you directly through Teams.

    Could you please add that functionality?

  2. 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

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  8. 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

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  17. 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?

  18. Sort files default by name in teams.

    Sort files in Teams. Under files, the files are not sorted in "Names" by default. I have to press the sort button Name every time.

  20. Remove menus from textbot

    YOU CANT SIMPLY COPY A MESSAGE YOU RECIEVE BECAUSE AN OPTIONS MENU (three dots) AND LIKE BUTTON BLOCK IT!!

    This is incredibly fristrating, inconvenient and dumb. Formatting should be removed too when you paste things in there or as you copy it or as you receive it. Any mix will do.

    Have those options available OUTSIDE the frigging text box itself or remove them or allow me to remove them.
