  1. MacOS shortcuts and keyboard interactions

    Please make MacOS default interactions (keyboard shortcuts/nav, menus, prefs, notifications). Other Office 365 apps are more native than this.

    --

    Request that text navigation shortcuts follow the system standard:
    cmd+left arrow – jumps cursor to beginning of text
    cmd+right arrow – jumps cursor to end of text
    option + left arrow – jumps cursor left one word
    option + right arrow – jumps cursor right one word

    ---

    One of the issues with this is that the native notifications from other apps cover up the Team ones when both are active. If it was a native app, these notifications would…

      • option arrow on OSX native keyboard shortcut overridden by teams

        Please REMOVE the key binding for option+left/right arrow keys on OSX. The native shortcut moves the cursor word by word (same as ctrl+arrow on windows).... I promise no one wants to navigate to the next tab over with this key binding - please revert this change and don't override any native OSX keybindings.

        And please implement the "up arrow" to edit last message. This is a time killer not having this feature.

          • Microsoft Teams desktop has stopped working on my Mac

            Since downloading the Microsoft Teams program on my Mac, it typically shut when I wasn't actively using it (problem #1).

            Around Thursday afternoon (12/8) when I went to open the program again, it wouldn't open except a screen that says "Checking your connection...
            Yikes! Looks like someone pulled the plug on the internet."

            I can confirm I am connected to the internet and all my other applications work.

            My Mac is on OS X El Capitan, 10.11.6

              • Better MacOS X menu integration

                Mac OS X defaults should just work. I want a preferences menu item. I want the hotkey that goes with that. I want a menubar, and not a start menu.

                • Reduce memory footprint of Microsoft Teams Helper

                  On my 2016 MacBook, Microsoft Teams is using a substantial amount of memory at 181 Megs, but Microsoft Teams Helper is using over 680 Megs!?

                  What is this Microsoft Teams Helper and how is it helping me? This is way too much combined ram usage between these two processes, and it feels like there's room to reduce this by quite a lot. Competitive clients do not use this much ram on my machine.

                  • Make Teams for Mac available in App Store/VPP

                    I love that OneNote is available in the Mac App Store, and it'd be great if Teams were too since it's also free. Deploying, updating and generally managing VPP apps is much simpler than having to package manually etc. This would make deploying Teams to our Mac departments much easier.

                    • No notification when app is in background

                      We experience that we do not get a dock notifications when the macOS app is in the background. We need to cmd+w (close the window) after each message so teams will show the notification.
                      Please fix this issue since important messages does not get the required attention.

                      • Refine the Teams automatic update framework on Macs

                        On most Macs I've tried, the automatic update framework is pretty aggressive, and apparently cannot be unconfigured. However, it consistently fails to update the app when I'm logged in with a standard account. The app occasionally prompts for admin creds (I assume it's making an update helper daemon), and I supply them, but the only Helper process Teams ever runs is owned by the standard account. I'm not sure exactly what to suggest here, because there are several opportunities for change, some of which might obviate usefulness of others. Ideas might be some user interaction to defer the forced relaunch…

                        • macOS High Sierra support

                          I'm sure it's coming at some point, but the app will not launch in High Sierra. And of course the web version still isn't available in Safari. So I have to download a different browser to run Teams in for the time being.

                          • Teams should auth automatically with stored creds on Macs

                            Teams seems to store my credentials in my login keychain, whether I check the box directing it to do so, or not. It asks me to reauthenticate on a regular basis, and when it does so, it uses the keychain entry to fill the username and password fields for me, which makes the only remaining manual task the act of clicking the Submit button. Why? I'd prefer an option to configure automatic submission.

                              When Teams runs in the background it randomly becomes active. e.g.: I have Teams open and I'm writing in word document. Suddenly while typing teams is active and my input goes into teams not into word anymore.

                                    • Mac users have to keep logging back in every few hours - stop this, Mac-based team members are missing important messages.

                                      I received this in a ticket: "A few of us have been noticing that Microsoft Teams logs us out VERY often, every couple of hours or so. Is there any way to create a longer log in period? Aside from being very annoying, this is a problem because there is no notification that you've been kicked out and are missing communications." We are Office365 users.

                                        • Add a remind me option

                                          Please add a "remind me" option for each message. Sometime I can read a message but cannot respond to it right now. So my goal here is to set a reminder to respond to the message later.
