  1. How about a Microsoft Teams Insider/Preview Program?

    One of the main reasons I loved that our business was encouraged to move from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams, was because of the improvements based on user feedback that have been implemented since Teams was announced. As well as seeing the many items and features coming to the application. I love knowing that Microsoft is listening to people's feedback.

    As the IT Manager of a small business, I also play the role of "cheerleader" trying to get people excited about the products they use, especially when many of them don't like change. But when change is for the…

  2. Enable enterprise control for application install

    Running a "stateless virtual desktops", has enabled our company of 5,000 staff to operate with 15 desktop support staff, which represents operational efficiency, cost saves, consistent patching and a consistent experience. Teams will not run in this environment because we can't App-V it and it gets installed in local data which is destroyed at logoff. We have a portfolio of 400 unique apps and Teams is the first which will not work and therefore cannot be deployed. Please make this enterprise ready...

  3. Desktop Icon Creation Duplication with OneDrive Known Folder Move

    In a shared computer environment, an admin may choose to install the Team Machine Wide Installer MSI.

    Teams is then installed at every user logonif it doesn't exist.

    "%ProgramFiles%\Teams Installer\Teams.exe --checkInstall --source=default"

    Is put in the following key

    HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    This presents an issue when using OneDrive Known Folder Move. When a new user logs on to a PC, OneDrive has its own installation and update process. The Teams installer will start and finish before OneDrive has installed, updated and initiated Known Folder Move for the new user profile.

    Teams will create a desktop icon in the %USERPROFILE%\Desktop shell…

  4. Reply function to messages in Desktop App

    In the Teams Mobile version we get option to reply to each message in the chat. But this option is not available in Desktop App.
    Its weird that Mobile version has more feature than Desktop feature.

  6. Microsoft Teams - Include Downloads Manager

    When downloading multiple, large files - the current Teams desktop client DOES NOT show a 'progress bar'...only a toast notification when the files have finished downloading.

    Include a "Downloads" or "Download Manager" button on the left side that shows downloads in progress, and that allows incomplete downloads to be 're-downloaded'.

    At this time, there is no way for me to know if everything downloaded without comparing files in my 'Downloads' folder to the files in the channel (slow, inefficient).

  8. Kein Klingelton über die Lautsprecher zu hören, wenn ein Kopfhörer eingestöpselt ist.

    Es ist kein Klingelton über die Lautsprecher zu hören, wenn ein Kopfhörer eingestöpselt ist. Dadurch werden eingehende Nachrichten und Anrufe kaum wahrgenommen. Dies ist ein deutlicher Rückschritt gegenüber Skype.

  9. Teams logs me out

    The desktop app of teams logs me out constantly. I get new message notifications on my phone, but then I have to log in manually to the desktop app almost on a daily basis and the app doesn't remember the credentials either.

  10. resize the team list column to custom size

    the column that list the different teams should be able to be resized to user liking. I understand some apps let you maximize the screen but then to switch tabs and whatnot you have to minimize to switch to another one.

  11. Stay unread till pressed read botton

    When I go to Activity and press one of the new mention will automatically mark read on another thread's mention in the same channel which losts my attention. It is good to have a READ botton on the mention itself to manually mark as read, especially the mention was @ to me.

  13. Takes too many resources

    Teams hogs way too many resources on Windows 10. Too much RAM and too much processor to keep it running

  15. Have multiple windows concurrently (side by side if needed)

    Currently there is no way( or at least it is not obvious) to have multiple windows. For instance in the file I would like to be able to see different folders at the same time.

  17. Integrate the Windows 'Teams' app into Outlook

    Can the desktop Teams app be integrated into Outlook?

    As most people have outlook open all day on their desktop, it would make sense to integrate Teams into Outlook for internal instant communications and file sharing, video chats and meetings etc?

  18. auto logout on desktop applications

    Workstations are shared by multiple employees during the course of the day. Its helpful, that the application logs out automatically after a period of inactivity

  19. Integrate with MS PowerToys FancyZones to share a zone instead of the whole screen

    Screen sharing doesn't work well when the user who is sharing has a super ultra wide monitor (49") and the others have ordinary monitors. This forces the user to share applications instead of the screen and the user needs to stop and start sharing for each application switch. It would be great if the user could share a PowerToy FancyZone. Then the user could have a normal sized FancyZone and share it.

  20. Open Team in New Window

    It would be great to have the ability to right-click on a team and choose "Open Team in New Window." That would be the only team in the new window, allowing the user to focus on that team's work. And even better if that window only accepted chats from that team's members.
