  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. support for sharing MacOS full screen apps in other Spaces (virtual screens/desktops)

    Most Mac users work with fullscreen apps when they are serious to focus on something. A full screen app gets it's own Space. When using MS With Teams functionality as is, you can only share non-fullscreen windows that are on the first Space (Desktop 1) or share all of Desktop 1. When I work with MS Teams, I have to fiddle with my windows to make it work. Sometimes, I'll have the window shared, but then click to make it full screen which drops it from the share. In either case this cases meeting delays.

    Instead I'd like to share…

  4. Remove the "hidden" Window for notifications on Mac OSX

    Currently when I click on the Window menu item, there is a permanent option in the list for "Microsoft Teams Notification". I assume if you used MacOSX notifications instead this may not be necessary. Is there some way to remove this otherwise? It doesn't actually do anything when you click on it.

  5. 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.

  6. 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).

  8. Catalyst Teams Mac App

    Please look at making a Catalyst version of the Mac Teams app for 10.15 (ie. iPad app on Mac).
    The current Electron app is slow and sluggish.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Edit PowerPoint using Office Apps not just edit Online Powerpoint in MS Team apps

    Currently, MS teams app allows you to edit powerpoint using the Edit Powerpoint Online option. We have many people using Team in their MAC PC.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  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.
