  1. Alt+Num affecting accents for all languages

    I use a mechanical keyboard with the us layout to type Spanish. It's imposible to input accented characters because the app tries to process them as shortcuts.

        • ability to add user to direct call

          When you direct call someone you can't switch to conference mode. To get a conference call the only way is to hang up and make the call from a group chat with both people. You should be able to easily add the other person from the direct call.

          • Guest access should be implemented at the Channel level

            Once I enabled guest access on the tenant I can enable guest access to a team, but I can't give guest access to a single channel. There should be a way to do this as I will now need to create a guest team and an internal team when I share teams with customers.

            • Add message to "you got a new team"-email

              When I add new members to a team I would like to add a message to the "you got a new team"-email. Just like that I can add a message when I share a file from OneDrive or SharePoint.

              • Add Guests without any Office 365 account for

                If you want to compete with Slack or Rocketchat (and you should as they are displacing email), you will need to allow non Microsoft accounts holder to join as guest. The proportion of the public committed to using MS Office is diminishing. In any cross organization team there will be people who do not have Office. if such a team member is crucial to the team, they will not be able to use MS Teams. In fact, most people who build teams will not use a product where this is a risk, even if the situation has not arisen. In…

                • Follow Up Ability

                  There should be an ability to make anything in Teams a follow up task (possibly link it to planner). If someone posts something, I want to be take that post and create a task with it for follow up. With this, similar to Outlook's summary page - I want a summary page in Teams, such as ALL current open tasks, new unread messages, etc.

                        Hi -

                        We are sorry about the keyboard issue. We wanted to let you know we have identified the root cause, and are working on a fix.

                        Thanks for using Teams, and giving us feedback!

                        ~ Alex

                      • unable to authenticate through browser pop

                        I am seeing a bug with the Teams’ desktop application (Windows and Mac) that doesn't support advanced security for user authentication.

                        When using the Teams’ desktop client the tab is unable to complete the authentication which pops a browser window to authenticate the user. The Teams’ web client pops the authentication window and authenticates the Teams’ tab user as expected.

                        The use case that triggered this: Trying to add a published Smartsheet to a tab in my Teams channel with the Smartsheet sheet publish option "Only available to users in owner's account" enabled.

                        • out of office

                          Add an out of office feature. I have been contacting someone through teams in the office when I am field based, and only when I emailed them realised that they were out of the office - this would be helpful to have on teams.

                            • Mute a channel or chat

                              I'd love to keep groups/channels in my list, but mute a channel so I don't get those. I get notified whenever some tags a channel eg @General, it's super distracting!

                              Also would like the possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received for a user that chooses to mute some group chat.

                                We’ve listened and the ability to mute a chat will soon be released! To access it you will simply click the “…” overflow menu from the left rail, on the chat you wish to mute. A fly-out will appear allowing you to either Favorite, Mute, Hide, or Leave the chat.

                                  • Ability to run Get-Team without Teams license assigned

                                    To run get-team requires Teams license as per the update from MS. Please make it available without assigning Teams license. As many administrators in our customer does not have any license assigned.

                                    • Add other Sharepoint document folders under Files

                                      Please allow adding granular SharePoint document library subfolders to the Files tab. Currently, only the document library level can be added, not sub folders.

                                      This allows adding content from related but separate SharePoint sites without having to provide the entire document library (which may contain irrelevant content to the Team)

                                      • Teams has hijacked several keyboard shortcuts

                                        Teams has hijacked several keyboard shortcuts as of early december, and will not allow them to be used even in other programmes.
                                        This is particularly annoying as one of them, ctrl+alt+d, is probably the most used shortcut on my keyboard - I use it a couple of times a minute while working. Is it possible to make these keyboard shortcuts reassignable, or at least to stop Teams from interrupting other programmes?

                                        • It's distracting to get a chat message when a meeting has started or ended

                                          This should be a notification option that you can turn off. Currently you see a chat item for your attention. You go to it only to see that the meeting you just started, or just ended, started or ended. You already know that, and the notification is just wasting your time.
