  1. UI is greedy over screen real estate which is cumbersome when switching to/from app.

    How do I make the UI more compact ? Need a UI config option like the tools its supposed to replace.

    While it may look sleek, that dies after about 500 milliseconds of use as one realizes it takes over a whole screen.

    this is supposed to be for contextual conversations, but the context is taken over by teams, which requires lots of Alt-tab flipping back and forth.

    Ideally the UI should autoscale on shrinking, or have an option for shrinking it down/compact mode.

  2. Logout

    The app logs me out every time i want to use it. The frustrating thing is that my account is linked to a different phone number than the one i use, so i can’t use the app until i get home. There is no other way to log in, no other security steps except for this one. Really unsatisfied

  3. Allow multitennancy!

    Please allow MS Teams to be logged in to 2 or more organizations in parallel.

    We are working with customers who have added us to their O365 account base and we need to be able to run 2 teams instances - each logged in to different organization (one organization is ours and other is partners).

  4. windows-wide shortcut to start or answer phone calls

    I want to switch fully from S4B to MSTeams. In S4B, I use PhoneTools from Estos, to answer phone calls with a single keystroke or to start a phone call. when I have marked a phone number and press the defined hotkey. See: https://www.estos.com/products/phonetools

    So: You should implement the option for a windows wide shortcut/hotkey to start or answer phone calls.

  5. Do Not Disturb for Calls

    We need the ability to quickly indicate do not disturb for phone calls in teams. Its obnoxious to have spammers interrupt my teams audio calls with the phone ringing.

  6. Windows classic theme

    Please bring back the Windows Classic Theme. Your new metro/Windows 10 theme takes up too much space E.g Window title bar is big (height) plus buttons that minimise and close the window. I love the classic theme and would absolutely appreciate it if you can bring it back.

  7. Improve Skype for Business

    What an absolute state you've left Skype for Business in. You don't even check the huge amount of negative feedback you have on the forum for it.

    You've focused all your efforts on developing a new product while your current product is just ignored, so in the meantime there is nothing to fill the gap.

    Fix Skype for Business please.

  10. Ability to view architectural files in the desktop client. (Revit, AutoCAD, Sketchup)

    If we could view architectural files even if read only it would be absolutely amazing.

  12. Microsoft Teams Notifications position

    Add an option to let user change the position of the Mictrosoft Teams notifications on MacOS. Currently it's only on top right which is so annoying, because it overlaps the other apps important buttons!

  13. Desktop client localization

    I have only found EN version for download for a desktop client. If it attempts to replace SfB, it needs a standalone client running in your systray, to quickly see messages and reply. But it doesn't recognize our language and underlines all the words. We also use EN SfB, but it recognized the used language and spellchecker works correctly. Teams either should do the same or localized version should be provided. On the web it is by default uses localized version, so app is already translated.

  14. Totally immature software, some ideas

    The iOS client must have landscspe mode. It's painful to type in portrait mode.

    Your Mac client is totally half baked. Examples:


    1. If I accidentally closenthe main window by cmd-W the only way to open it again it cmd-Q and relauch


    2. Adding pics/files... There is no way to see, manage, or reuse the files I've already uploaded. The client just says the file exists already.

  15. Whenever I end a meeting in MS Teams NetExtender crashes (no data is transferred through Extender during the meeting)

    Not interfere with NetExtender. For some reason I must reboot my computer to use NetExtender again, each time MS Teams ends a meeting.

  16. Make the application disappear forever.

    The application as a whole is a mess. It's frustrating to navigate, and even when you find what you want it only works half of the time.

  17. External Persistent chat priority alert

    It would be very useful to be able to assign a different type of alert for different persistent chats. For example:

    We use Skype's persistent chat for remote teams during critical events.

    the notification windows & alert sounds for chats with a higher priority should look and sound differently so that they stand out from other chats.

    This would allow us to train users to respond accordingly and increase our efficiency when responding to critical events whose responders are in various remote locations that are contributing to and participating in the event response.

  18. Adaptive toolbar (ellipse only shown when needed)

    Make the toolbar adaptive, so that it displays as many icons as can fit in the free space. I.e. the ellipse should disappear on a larger screen and all apps should display, and it should only display when there is not enough room.
