  1. Fix the issue that selecting teams on OSX with CMD TAB selects the notification window

    When CMD TAB task switching on OSX the default window selected is a hidden notification window. This means that whenever switching to teams the app remains in the background. This is both frustrating and slows down productivity.

    The bug is replicated on many users in my organisation and beyond.

  2. Por favor incluyan la función de "compartir audio" en Teams para Mac.

    Por favor incluyan la función de "compartir audio" en Teams para Mac. Es muy importante para mí y para mis estudiantes. Y lamentablemente en las condiciones actuales no puedo cambiar de dispositivo.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Add support for M1 Macs

    Hello team.
    Macs with M1 (Apple Silicon) chip are getting more and more popular. Therefore I think it’s really important to have support for ARM on Microsoft Teams, because emulating with Rosetta2 gives some issues. Please consider creating an Universal App or a standalone ARM version of Microsoft Teams for M1 Macs.
    Thanks.

  9. Easily switch between tenancies in Teams for Mac

    Please allow easy switch between tenancies on Teams for Mac.

    At the moment, I need to log out of my work Teams account, then log back in using my college Teams account.
    (On iPhone and iPad, is it easy to seamlessly switch between accounts, but on Mac it does not exist)

  11. Alias for contact

    I can give my contact in Jabber a different display name that is easier for me to remember. But I couldn't do the same thing in Microsoft Team. I'd like to see this functionality added.

  12. iWork document compatibility

    Unless I'm missing something, I can't upload iWork (Pages, Numbers, Keynote) files into Teams. The upload process reveals the contents of the container, rather than presenting the file itself. e.g. My Cool Presentation becomes a bunch of independent files,

  13. notifications do not display on mac when the app is on a different screen

    Macs have the ability to display apps full screen and then switch between those different apps (usually using a 3-finger side-to-side swipe on the touchpad).
    If the Teams app is full screen but is not the app that is on the screen then the notifications don't show up. The only way somebody would know that there have been any notifications would be on the badge in the dock, however if you've got the dock hidden (which I do) one might go a long time without seeing the badge.

    Please could you make notifications show up regardless of which full screen…

  14. Make keybinds consistent

    On the mac version of of teams, if you do CMD+Shift+V in channels, you paste from your clipboard in plain text.

    When you do it in i private chat however it starts a call. This is very frustrating, since I'm afraid of using keybinds in teams now as they are context sensitive.

  15. Mac app terminates automatically and continuously nags about admin permissions for updates

    The Mac OS X Client is a horrible app.
    It keeps terminating automatically without any notification and it simply switches me offline even when I want to stay online and available for my colleagues. I can not figure out why or when the client terminates.
    Moreover, the Team Helper App update keeps bothering me several times a day that it needs admin permission to update something.

    Thats not the way how client applications should work these days.

  17. Support the apostrophe key on a Mac in spell checking

    The current version doesn't seem to understand the ' key when doing spell checking. If I type the word "shouldn't" Teams marks "should'" as a spelling mistake. When I choose to correct this to "shouldn't" I end up with the word "shouldn't't". The same thing happens with doesn't and other words with ' in them.

  18. Regarding the User Experience on Teams

    To the Microsoft Teams development team,

    Thank you for taking the time to read through these suggestions, and I am glad to be able to post my thoughts here in order to help create a better user experience. As a student, my experience using Microsoft Teams (specifically for Mac) has been mostly good. The app is very stable, and it runs well without using too much power. The functionality of having multiple office apps built in, with smooth integration with my One Drive makes using a single app for all my tasks a breeze.
    

    However, I do have a few…
