  2. hover

    Hover Options

    I suggest moving or removing the hover options on chat messages. The problem with them is that when you hover over the message, you can no longer highlight the covered-up portion of the message - which is a problem if you're trying to copy and paste something out of the chatbox, especially on shorter messages.

  3. Allow rotation of photos in desktop app integrated photo viewer.

    Currently the integrated photo viewer in the desktop app, for viewing attached photos in conversations, does not support photo rotation. Please integrate, thanks!

  4. Teams in SysTray does not distinguish between Activity & Presence

    Whether you are in a meeting or got a message, in both cases you get a RED DOT. This is not clear or very helpful.

  6. Don't include Teams in task switcher when closed

    When Teams is running it always appears in my task switcher (ALT+TAB), even after I have closed the window.

    Steps:
    1. Open teams and log on.
    2. Make sure your settings are to keep the application running in close.
    3. Close the window. You should no longer see Teams in your taskbar, but you should still see the Teams notification icon in the system tray.
    4. Hold the ALT key and press TAB. Keep the ALT key pressed.

    The next window in the task switcher is Teams, even though the window has been closed.

    Worse yet - if I release…

  7. We really need "Paste as plain text" in the Teams desktop client

    Please add a "Paste as plain text" option to the right-click menu in all text areas in the Teams desktop client that accept formatted text.

  8. Fix Edit in Word/Excel - Currently not working

    When you have saved an excel/ word file in files section in teams then you click on the file and edit. The edit in word/excel online works but the edit in word/excel does nothing and does not open word/excel to edit the document. Desktop teams version is Microsoft Teams Version 1.0.00.10302 (64-bit). It was last updated on 4/21/17.

  9. Improve the Mac App


    • Can't find it in Mac App Store

    • Weird first run experience (very un-Maclike)

    • Didn't know which monitor it was on (had windows on both)

    • Ignored system level text replacements when trying to log in (I have a shortcut for my fairly long email address)

    • Non-standard UI, and not in a good "I hope this takes off" way

    • Non-standard emojis automatically used when you type keyboard ones (e.g. ;) is turned into a horrible animated winking face that looks like it is leering at me... but it also lets you insert system native ones alongside them for added confusion)

    • A garish…

  12. Multiple applications sharing

    Please let us share multiple applications from MS Teams rather than sharing only one application or only the entire desktop.

    Also, give functionality to switch to another application while you are sharing without stoping screen share and resharing another application

  13. Multiple windows on multiple monitors

    Teams needs to support multiple monitors and the ability to have different windows of teams on different monitors. Like if I join a meeting or I'm on a call and someone is presenting, I want that on monitor 1, but I want the Teams main windows on monitor 2 so that I can still chat with someone else, or chat in a team channel. Skype has this ability and it works great

  14. When using the Teams Desktop App, the App should not prompt you to download the Team Desktop App. Seriously, how narcissistic can an App be?

  15. Popout chat should allow calling, video, and screen sharing like normal chat window

    The popout chat window should allow calling, video, and screen sharing just like the normal full Teams client window. It is not efficient to have to go back to the Teams client and search for a person to be able to start a call, video, or screen share from someone you are chatting with in a popout window.

    Thank you!

  16. Replace Electron app with Native app that runs fast on desktop.

    Desktop Microsoft Teams is, well, basically useless. It is the slowest app I use on any PC. It needs either some MAJOR performance improvements or a complete re-write as a Native app so that it runs fast on PCs.

    Come on guys, you can do better than this!

  17. Add a screenshot button

    Add a feature to take screenshots directly from the chat window. Like, when you are chating with someone and you need to send a screenshot to the person, you just have to click on the button, like the file, calendar buttons for an example and then MS Team should allow to take screenshot of MS team incase someone wants to take screenshots of MS Team it's self, or if someone wants to minimize MS team, the minimize button should allow to minimize MS team, and then again re-enable the screenshot activity, once desired screenshot is taken, there should be a…

  18. Allow client to export my chat messages

    Individual and group chats absolutely has to have the ability to export it out as a word document or such. For a large business sometimes the context of a chat has to be copied out for various reasons and to not have the ability to do that is simply insane. There needs to be an export option (PDF, DOC ECT.) included in chats. Saving one individual message is not adequte.

  20. join meeting audio: teams calls phone

    not a new idea but, please allow us to choose more audio options while dialing into a meeting, this was the most useful thing in s4b I could choose to join with skype for bus, not to join audio, or have a handy list of phone numbers for skype to automatically call. please bring that to teams, my users are complaining so much about this little feature,
