  2. expand conversations default option

    Add USER setting to expand all by default.

    There's an existing idea for Collapsing/expanding conversations where it looks like they're working on implementing an Admin setting for collapse/expand, and a collapse/expand all button.

    However, many of the comments on that idea are asking for something different:

    Give us a USER-configurable option (not just admins) for whether threads are shown expanded or collapsed.

    I feel like I spend most of my time catching up in Teams clicking "N replies from ..." or "See more" and would much prefer for everything to be shown by (my user-configured) default.

    Even if this option…

  3. status

    There should be more status options similar to other programs.
    Examples:
    - Status change timeframe - (available to away after 10min,15min,30min,1hr)
    - Allow no change in status from computer activity/inactivity
    - Hide status aside from available or offline or away

    Feel free to add more.

  4. Global Setting for Enable "Teams" to Start Minimized

    Provide the ability to start the Teams application in the background and minimized on a global scale, not only per each user's setting.

  5. Change keyboard shortcut

    We need functionality to customize keyboard shortcuts to resolve following problem.

    Many of keyboard shortcuts are not giving same user experience like other MS apps, and we would like to customize them.

    For example, our developer heavily use VSCode, and we are expecting Command + P will open search, and Command + Shift + } will switch to next channel.

  7. Allow users to disable webcam by default

    Every meeting I join, Teams turns on my webcam and suggests I join with it enabled. This is not the way that anyone I work with wants it to work, and a departure from Skype behaviour as well. Making the setting sticky would be great.

  8. Convert team type

    I would like to be able to convert a team from one option to another. Example: Anyone to Staff, Staff to PLC, etc.

    This would just change the team type so those team type features can be used. Files, tabs, apps, and emails/conversations would not be altered or removed.

  9. turn off feed

    Turn off or hide Activity Feed. Why is this separate from Chat? In other familiar chat applications, the most recent convos sort to the top. In this, the Feed shows a single person’s action and then it’s easy to accidentally message the group when you click on it because you think it will open your private conversation with just them. The Feed screen looks exactly the same as chats.

  10. Don't minimize on screen share

    When a user have multiple screens, have an option to not minimize the teams meeting when they share a different screen, then they don't have to click on anything to continue to see the meeting while sharing.

  11. Settings options to hide or show Team in Outlook

    Teams are not shown in the Global address list and under groups in Outlook by default. In order to change this, we need to run a PowerShell command. It would be great to have an option in the Teams settings to show or hide the team from Outlook, so the Team Owner can change the settings instead of requiring PowerShell

  12. Add Video Call Background default and settings to the account Settings drop down

    Add Video Call Background default and settings to the account Settings drop down. This way the background can be set before the call and a default set so you don't have to keep going into the settings.

  13. Disable startup option

    Like Skype, it would be great if there was a setup option to not start on Windows Startup. Reason being, when on laptop, do not want lots of applications running that I dont need when on battery power. Saves time and frustration to not have these applications autostart. I can start them when I need them but not before.

  15. Allowing customize Music on Hold for individual user

    We find that only the call queue allows for customizing music on hold in the Teams admin center now. We are looking forward to seeing this feature is available for an individual user in the near future.

  16. Set Contacts as default tab within 'Chat' rather than Recent

    There should be an ability to customise preferences, eg. what tab to open at start-up, why does chats default to 'recent chats' rather than contacts? Lync never did that, it doesn't make sense, I want to see who is online and contact new people, not see old conversations

  18. Status settings

    Sorry, I'm not going to scan through 1800+ ideas on status settings, but it would be ideal for there to be some kind of settings option for a person's status. For example, "show your status as Away when you lock your computer"
