  2. scope a search to the current chat

    Searching in teams is useful but it would be nice to be able to limit what actually gets searched.

    I often find myself needing to scope my search to just a single chat. i.e. "I know <thing-i'm-looking-for> has been typed in the current chat, go and find it"

    Please could you add this capability? i.e. Specify the scope of a search to just be the current chat.

  3. Use standard Mac keyboard shortcuts

    There are many apps like Teams where hitting the return key after entering text "posts" the text in whatever way makes sense for the app. The Mac standard is to type option-return to insert a newline into the message (since just return does something else). Teams uses shift-return instead. I wish that Teams would use the Mac standard.

  4. 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.

  5. Mac Thick Client Support Kerberos Auth

    My work device is domain joined, I have a Kerberos TGT on my device, and it works just fine when I use my browser. Kerberos authentication then just works with our ADFS identity provider, and I log into Teams, Office 365, and a multitude of other SAML protected endpoints. No additional password required while I'm logged in and on network.

    The Teams thick client however always prompts me for a username and password for our ADFS endpoint, in spite of being on network and logged in. It would be nice if the Teams thick client could leverage my kerberos authentication…

  6. mac graphic

    Teams Helper usually trigger the discrete graphic card on Macs with dual graphic cards. This leads to higher energy consumption.
    Could you please stick to the integrated graphic card in all cases?

  7. smartsheet integration is broken

    The access tocken not picked up by the desktop app on OSX at times.

    Some smartsheet sheets would load, others would show the login page.

    Pressing login would authenticate but nothing would happen in teams.

    This really cripples smartsheet integration

    Please fix

  8. macOS - Login credentials get asked about every hour

    Why are login credentials not saved. Desktop applications logs out about once every hour. I am using teams or Mac version 0.7.00.40. Shouldn't it stay logged all the time?

  10. macOS: Synchronize Teams status with native Do Not Disturb status

    If my Teams status is Do Not Disturb then that should toggle my macOS Do Not Disturb. Therefore, when I'm presenting my screen and Teams automatically change my status to Presenting/Do Not Disturb then all of my notifications are suppressed.

    This corresponds with the request to move Teams notifications into the native macOS notifications to further integrate with Mac's Do Not Disturb features:

  13. Add download progress for teams downloads

    It's so annoying to keep checking in on finder until to the filesize stops moving in order to tell when a download is finished. Be more like Slack. Add a downloads drawer.

  14. Remember audio device selection

    As a user of Teams on Mac, currently:


    1. I join a meeting and select my USB headset as speaker and microphone device in Teams

    2. I leave the meeting

    3. I restart my computer

    4. I join a meeting and Teams had changed the speaker and microphone device back to the system default.

    It would be nice if in step 4, Teams would remember the last time I had a meeting I selected my USB headset for speaker and microphone device and use that.

  16. Open application in background for Mac

    In Windows..Settings..Application, there is a setting to "Open Application in Background" I would like this on the MacOS version. When Teams opens it interrupts any application that I am working on.

  18. Allow Office desktop apps to edit files in Mac

    Can we have access to editing MS Office files directly in the desktop apps on the Teams Mac desktop app? It works in the Windows version. Kills productivity on the Mac. Also, it should be available not only on the file tab, but also on linked files directly on the conversations (such as when linking a file from Dropbox or OneDrive).

  20. Screen share: share different desktops/applications

    On the Mac we can have multiple desktops. Please can we be able to choose which one of these we can share.

    Also please can we be able to choose any window/application to share like on Windows. Currently only files in the chat can be shared.
