  1. Mac Teams Helper: Takes up too much CPU and makes app almost unusable

    I can't use teams with out it lagging severely. When I go and look at the processes running, It always looks like the 'helper' is taking up crazy amounts of CPU and it lags out the application to the point of it almost being unusable.

    I've tried closing the application, rebooting, re-installing, checking for updates, etc.. nothing works.

    I'm on macOS Mojave 10.14.2

    We have rolled out a fix for improving Mac performance while in a meeting. This should help with heating and perf issue on Macs.

    Please update your client (Settings→check for updates). Let us know your feedback. There are other performance improvements we are working in parallel, we will share updates as soon as they are available.

  2. Enable Macbook Pro Touch Bar controls for Teams

    Would be great to do clever shortcuts in Teams using the touch bar on Macbook Pros

  3. 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.

  4. Outlook (Mac) and Teams better integration

    Hi,
    Outlook for Mac and Teams are not working together regarding attachments or mail publication:
    - For attachments: it could be great, from a mail with attachements, to have a quick and easy way to publish the attachment into a channel (with a comment). Today, to do that, I need to save the attachment to my Mac and then upload it to Teams...
    - For emails: I know that it is possible to send a mail to a channel but it could be better to have a "publish to teams" action in the email ribbon that act as a way…

  5. Add support for Keynote presentations

    When presenting from Keynote via sharing your Keynote window you see the slide thumbnails and formatting options like you're looking at the presenter's screen instead of what is being presented. You cannot see this on the Mac that is sharing. Only on the Teams sharing screen.

  6. status

    my status constantly changes to away every time i navigate to a different open application. it would be nice if skype and teams could reflect the same status, or if teams could simply stop randomly signing me out.

  7. Mac: Please include an audio input/output/video device option for "System Default"

    Currently in Teams calls (same on SfB Mac actually) when I go to chose which audio device to use, I am not presented with a choice of "System Default".

    Every other VOIP program on the Mac (personal skype, google hangouts, facebook) has this option which allows you to control your device from one spot and have it used in all your clients.

    Can we please add this option .... cross OS would be ideal, if it's possible in Windows too.

  8. 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.

  10. OSX client updates - app quits multiple times a day

    It seems whenever the OSX client updates, we get a “An update is ready to install. Microsoft Teams is trying to add a new helper tool.” authentication request, then the app quits. Or sometime the app just quits on it’s own without any notification. When it launches again, the “loading” box then sometimes doesn’t disappear. I really want to roll this out for our teams to start playing with, but having the app quit on us ~10 times a day without notification makes it unusable.

    needs your feedback  ·  Warren responded

    Please email me your logs so I can have the development team investigate.

    You can generate logs by using the shortcut CRTL+ALT+SHIFT+1

    This will generate a txt file in your Downloads folder starting with the name “MSTeams Diagnostics Log……………”.

    Please email the logs to: TEAMSML@microsoft.com and use the Subject line of “OSX client – App Quits”

    Thank you!

  11. Avoid separation between teams and chats.

    Teams and chats in one section (top: teams - below: chats)

  12. Remote control on macOS

    Allow me to use remote control when a colleague uses Microsoft Teams using macOS too. At this point, I can only remote control users sharing their screen from Windows.

  13. Need prompt before updating on MAC

    Every time there is an update for the desktop client (at least on Mac) the client updates automatically without prompting the user, which always seems to invalidate the session. There should be an option to prompt the user before the client is updated. (similar to how VS Code does it, perhaps)

  14. macOS notification center

    It would be extremely helpful if Microsoft Teams would integrate with macOS Catalina's Notification Center. Currently, Teams only provides a small pop up notification and if you are using 2 or more displays, you can easily miss these notifications.

  15. Add to Mac Share Menu

    I'd love to be able to have Teams in the Share Menu from different apps. Instead of having to copy and paste a link

  16. Make use of Mac Touch Bar for mute/unmute and other meeting actions

    Teams should allow the use of the Mac Touch Bar to do functions such as mute/unmute, leave meeting, show participants and so forth.

  18. Please remove the automatic minimize feature on the Mac version

    Please remove the automatic minimize feature on the Mac version. Very annoying. Happens when the app hasn't been accessed in a certain amount of time but we still need it to remain open.

  19. 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.

  20. Allow AirPods to mute/un-mute the audio

    AirPods allow you to start/stop audio by clicking on the base of the airpod. It would be nice for Teams to consume this signal and allow the audio to be muted/un-muted.
