  1. Add the ability to have multiple windows open for chats, teams and channels?

    It's very hard to keep track of multiple chats and teams all in one window - and time-consuming to keep navigating between them. It would be really useful to have multiple windows available that we can keep open for chats, teams and channels.

  2. Multiple Windows

    I chat privately all day and am part of and/or owner of Teams channels as well. I really need to be able to open both a chat window and a Teams window simultaneously so that there is not the constant need for keystrokes to go back and forth. People even get confused and put an entry they meant to put into a channel into a private chat because they forget which window is open. Opening multiple windows will enable you to watch and respond simultaneously just like you have email open all the time.

  4. **actual** markdown support

    The current markdown implementation is simply bad as it's not actual markdown. Instead it's some kind of in-line format guesser that changes what you type on enter.


    • it doesn't work in the client

    • it doesn't apply to messages submitted via webhook integrations

    • it doesn't work on cut-n-pasted text

    • it's not complete (tons of markdown syntax missing)

    • it doesn't allow simple shortcuts via "/extension" (looking at you, /giphy)

    in-line reformatting is slow and often unpredictable in the way it responds as you type, making for a poor experience, especially as you attempt to reformat a message you started typing.

  5. Easier Navigation

    If you click on a teams, you should land directly on the first channel.
    There should be a breadcrumb navigation for the channels in the teams, which can be optionally displayed between teams name and tabs.

  6. Seperate windows for conversations

    Rather than every conversation being on the main teams window, they could appear in their own smaller individual window, similar to Skype for business

  8. Allow the addition of Alt Text for images

    The addition of Alt Text is a basic accessibility consideration. Currently we can't do this is Teams (you can do it easily in Yammer).

    Currently we are using the work around of adding descriptive text when posting an image.

  10. Add ":eyes:" emoji to reactions bar

    Reactions bar's emoji is useful.
    But, One of the reactions we wanna use most is ": eyes:" emoji.

    When we get a notification, We often react to “I'm watching now" by using eyes emoji reaction on Slack.
    If we can do it on Teams, feel super cool !

    So We want to add ":eyes:" emoji to reactions bar.

  11. Slash commands should be available in the same place we type messages.

    As a power user, I wish to be able to enter slash commands in the same control where I type messages, because the inability to do so goes against more than 30 years of precedent for chat applications. Having to enter them elsewhere is counter intuitive and frustrating.

    From an accessibility point of view it makes no sense to force the user to navigate to another control where they still need to type the slash.

    IRC has had slash commands for more than 30 years. Slack, Mattermost, Zoom... all have slash commands integrated in the text entry control too.

    Integrating…

  14. "multi-tab" feature to switch between files or view 2+ files at the same time.

    I would really like a "multi-tab" feature to quickly switch between files or refer to two files on different tabs at once.

  17. Option to close\hide multiple chat windows

    From the recent tab, if we could right click and an option to close\hide multiple chat windows. Precious seconds are lost for those who don't use keyboard shortcuts.
    Another idea could be adding a checkbox when mouse howers over. This way we can quickly select chats and then close them at once.

  18. Reduced Motion Settings (Mobile)

    Emoji's (and perhaps other things) on the mobile app (tested on Android) have repetitive animations. There is no way to stop/reduce the motion of the emojis like you can on the desktop.

    This is an accessibility issue.

    Please can a setting be added to 'Stop/Reduce Motion' on the mobile apps.

  20. Screen Sharing - add an "actual size" button to show the presenter's desktop resolution

    It is difficult for viewers with poor vision to see desktops that are shared. HDMeeting and other videoconferencing apps have a UI element to show the 'actual size' of the display resolution.

    Users can use the zoom button to enhance the Teams call controls, but not the shared screen.
