  1. Explain what the product does

    I'd like to learn what the product does. I did not find a Help link within the window of the product. The product was imposed on me through some project within my company. I do not understand the purpose of Microsoft Teams - it seems like a chat application. What is the benefit?!

  2. interface is vey poor

    App will not open to recent chats. It is not customizable in that way. It will not let you delete a channel. When you click "Chats", it won't show your Team chats, only these private ones. The Activity screen doesn't show you recent team chats. The app is called "Teams" for goodness sake. But the hardest thing to get to is the most basic team chat. WhatsApp, Messenger, GroupMe, and basically all text apps have this simplicity. You're Microsoft! You should do much much better with this.

  5. Notifications dont work. I cannot find unread posts easily. Individual conversations run together and are difficult to separate.

    Even this Feedback questionaire is clunky and lacks forethought from overpaid Programmers.

  7. first launch tutorial

    Teams introduces a lot of new concepts and features, especially for "non-millennials" but even for "millennials".

    There should be a quick, interactive tutorial on first launch that calls out how this app works. For instance, what is a Team, what is a channel, what do @channel and @person conversations do/alert, what do favorites mean, use the add content to tabs for easy access, etc.

    As a whole department, it collectively took us a while to figure it out (and still haven't figured out everything). Why not give us a quick, 30-60 second rundown of this very new concept of Teams…

  8. Don't ask me for feedback then give me tips on getting my voice heard

    Your app asks for feedback. The link takes me to a website that expects me to filter existing ideas and vote, or to construct specific bug reports. This page gives advice on how best to get heard... You just asked for my voice but tell me I got to work to be heard?!

    The android app errors too much, uses too much battery, and syncs poorly.
    The main app doesn't notify by default on team channel messages, and there's no way of catching up with thread convos. Messages are often missed.
    Status has been poor for years, marking people away…

  12. Outlook Integration - Email Draft Recipient check against Teams

    Need help on the switch from the old paradigm of communicating to a team via email to the new one using tools like teams.

    It seems people need lots of reminders, they often revert to the old habit of email even after being added to a team..

    maybe some sort of outlook/teams awareness (plugin/etc) to help encourage teams use in some cases?

    Such as:
    <outlook notification>
    All Recipients of this email are members of Team X; would you rather use MS teams (<link to team>) for this communication?

    etc.

  15. Minimum System Requirements

    Would like to see what Microsoft's minimum recommended Hardware and Software requirements are for Teams, in a published document somewhere.

    Does anyone else think that we should have this information from Microsoft?

  18. Teams Overview

    Why don't you start with a flow diagram or road map of what the product is comprised and what each component in the system is connected and what it accomplishes. Seems I have to draw my own overview diagrams to understand the new app based applications.
