  1. 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.

  2. Teams Meeting Causes My New MacBook Pro to Overheat

    Only when I use Teams Meeting (not Live Event), my Macbook Pro runs very hot and forces the internal fans to run at maximum. This happens whether I'm connected with 1 other person or many. The only way to fix this is to minimize the window and I get a thumbnail size image of just the active speaker. Then, the Macbook stays cools and the fans run minimally. This just started happening with the latest major update of Teams. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, but the problem persists. My Macbook is dual boot, so I'm able to check…

  3. Selecting Contact Group as attendee for a Team Meeting

    Team Meetings does not allow to send meeting invite to a contact group. I have about 120 members and have to schedule meetings every day under different channels for separate set of people from this 120. Grouping the contact is of No help as Teams meeting does not allow to select contact group.
    Copy pasting the member list also does not work.

  4. Not working on slow internet connection

    The Teams app and workflow is really great, but you constantly get slowed down or even knocked out when you're on a slow internet connection (even 450 Kbit/s is not enough).

    Every couple of minutes, Teams shows "Please reconnect so we can keep your conversations going." even tough the connection is stable - but slow.
    After some time, it suggests to reload the app, which takes ages. So it's not usable at all, which is very sad, considering how great it is.

  5. Dock options like changing status

    Would be helpful to have some actions when right clicking the Dock icon, ie at least change our status (available, busy, etc), set the status message.

  6. 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.

  7. Mac: While Sharing Screen, allow interaction with Mac's Top Menu Bar

    This is less on an idea and more of just an issue: I was sharing my entire screen yesterday, had unpinned Microsoft Team's screen shot menu, and wanted to access some menu items in another application. But every time I moved my cursor to the Apple Menu area, the menu for Teams appeared. I had to stop sharing in order to access the menu items for that application (then reshare again to continue demoing). Please allow me to interact with the normal Mac Menu Bar while sharing my screen with Teams.

  10. Teams link will not resolve on Mac

    I have Teams installed on my Mac.  I coworker sent me a link to a file on a Teams site. When I click on the email link it launches a web browser window that encourages me to install the client version of Teams - which I am already using. There is no way I know to resolve the link - very frustrating.

  11. double click title

    Please set your OS X desktop app to follow the system preference for double clicking the title bar. Very annoying when you have this set to minimize apps, and this one app maximizes.

  12. Cannot Link to Existing Channel File

    On the mac app I created a file in a channel successfully. When I am on the Conversation screen and attempt to add that file to my conversation by linking it from the existing team channel, I get an error saying "upload failed". Happens every time in any channel.

  15. Sandboxed macOS app

    Please, make the macOS app sandboxed and distribute over Mac App Store. I don't understand why do I need to enter my sudo password when installing Microsoft Teams.

  16. macOS teams client needs to support Conditional Access where we can block fat client but allow web only Teams

    Teams for MacOS client needs to support Conditional Access where we can block fat client but allow web only Teams access. Organizations that decide to block all local data due to industry regulations and compliance need this and often the executives are the most popular group to use MacOS devices

  18. Fix blurry font rendering on Mac

    The font rendering in Mac Teams is different from other mac apps and makes it difficult to read text, especially if working with a lower resolution external screen.

  19. Please make it possible to zoom in on the Mac client

    Most other Mac tools allow the user to Command+/Command- to zoom in on the screen. The fonts are really small for these old eyes of mine.

  20. Presence/Status doesn't show 'Online' until activating the macOS app

    Often, the Teams app on macOS will show me as 'Away' after 3 mins of inactivity in the app, even though I'm still working on my computer. Doesn't realise that just because it's not the active window, that it doesn't mean I'm gone.
