  2. Make it automatically restart if updating on OSX

    The app will update multiple times per day, which is fine I guess. My issue is that this causes the app to close, requiring manual reopening. This makes it useless as a chat app, and is what keeps us using slack for that function.

  3. Teams client Mac asks way too often for two-factor (MS Authenticator) even when Macbook lid is closed

    When my closed Macbook comes close to a new wifi, my MS Authenticator asks for "approval" on my Apple Watch. First it was confusing why someone tried to access my account until I realised that it was the Mac Teams client that tried to connect. Need teams to better handle authentication towards Office365 with two-factor authentication enabled.

  4. MAC cannot handle Teams and other MS office applications open at once

    Teams video calls are fine on Macs providing no other MS office apps are open. When ppoint, excel or outlook open the video call quality is very unreliable and the Mac struggles to perform. I have to shut down all MS office apps if I'm having a call on MS teams. Which of course makes my calls ineffective in terms of sharing screens and work.

  5. Teams for Mac OS: allow for a (new) main window to be opened/created

    The current Microsoft Teams has its main window disappear on me at least daily (and I'm not sure why that happens). The only way to get it back is to quit Teams and re-launch it.

    Having a way to "File - New - Main Window" would be fabulous (short of figuring out why that main window goes away of course). This "Main window" exists for Outlook already.

  6. Set availability to Away when the computer is locked (Mac)

    Please add functionality to the Mac client to automatically set the status to Away when the computer is locked (Shift+Command+Q). It should then automatically switch back to Available when the computer is unlocked.

  8. Teams on Mac doesn't respect window hiding

    If the teams window is hidden on Mac (via cmd+h or by opt clicking on another window while the teams window is active) notifications will cause the window to become unhidden.

  9. Mac services menu support

    When I make a selection in messages and right click I see only "Copy" item. It's missing MacOS "Services" item where I can push selection to my Automator scripts or default MacOS apps. This is an OS essential which is missing.

  12. emoji keyboard shortcuts have stopped working

    I used to be able to type a colon and a list of emoji would appear, thus giving me the opportunity to insert an emoji using only the keyboard and not a mouse. I find this really convenient.

    For example, I would type

    :+

    and that would insert the "thumbs-up" emoji.

    This (i.e. insert an emoji using keyboard shorcuts) seems to have stopped working. I now have to resort to the mouse in order to insert a emoji, and I really don't want to.

    I am using the Teams desktop app on macOS by the way.

  13. open in excel macos

    On Windows you can hit the ellipsis on a file in a channel and open it directly in Word, Excel or PowerPoint. On Macos that option is missing and you have to go through the tortuous process of "Open in Word Online", and then when that browser windows has opened, click "Edit in Word". It's a constant daily annoyance.

  14. add external team members

    Currently you can't add external team members to Teams on a Mac.....of if you can it is so unintuitive that I can't find it. Please make it easy to add external people into your team.

  15. Add an Option to stop sending Diag Data when using High $$ links

    My MAC is often connected to Internet through a costly satellite connection.
    Sending diag data, even in a 'basic' can easily cost about $100 a month (depending on Office usage...).
    I'd like to have an option to totally disable this data transmission.
    Or at least get some technical detail to adapt a firewall to block it.

  17. Screen sharing broken with macOS 10.13.4 2018-001 security update

    After installing the 2018-001 security update to macOS 10.13.4, screen sharing in Teams no longer works. A full re-install of macOS 10.13.4 (released prior to the security update) is required to restore screen sharing functionality in Teams. Screen Sharing continues to work in Skype for Business and other applications after the security update, so this does appear to be an issue with the Teams desktop client.

  18. 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.

  19. Clean up Mac window controls.

    The window controls on the Mac should be cleaned up, they are awkwardly shoved in the corner. When using a full height window title bar they should be centered and moved in, i.e. Safari. Or the sidebar could be extended up. See attached.

  20. Tabs: No "+" Button to Add Tabs on Mac

    Maybe I am missing something, but I see no plus button to add tabs under a channel (e.g. cannot add One Note!) within Mac Teams.
