  1. partial thread expansion

    Allow expanding just the last few comments in a thread, rather than always expanding the whole thing. A thread w/ ~200 replies takes 4-5 seconds to expand completely saturating 1 CPU core and then requires scrolling down through it all to get to the recent replies. This is particularly inconvenient if you are frequently switching channels or between Team view and Chat view as all threads are repopulated collapsed whenever you return to a channel.

    We should be able to expand only the unread messages or 20 or so at a time.

    • Teams uses 600MB and is super slow!

      Quotes from various users about memory usage and slow performance:

      "Team is a memory hog! 100s MB! Slack is about 50."

      "The memory consumption is over 300MB!!! This should be a priority."

      "Just started evaluating teams, 500+ MB and 10-15% CPU. This is in a citrix VDI. Does teams use hardware rendering? If so is there a way to turn it off? I had to do this with the rest of Office."

      "I dont understand why my Teams application only uses 70MB when other people in my organization are towards half a gig! What is causing this Teams?"

      "Make it…

        The feature is still being worked upon. Many different changes are going into Teams and will provide a slow but steady pace to our performance increases.

        I don’t have any new details at the moment but hope to get some additional feedback in the next several weeks.

      • Reduce lags when scrolling through chat history

        Browsing chat history is difficult even in case of only few days old messages because these are not loaded on time when scrolling.
        I would like the ability to cache chat hostory locally for selected channels and decide how much time of the history I want to be available locally.

          • Clear local cache button

            Teams has a bunch of difference local caches and temp files that just continually grow forever in %appdata%\Microsoft\teams. It would be great to have a button that would wipe out all the local cache and temp files in this folder. Doing it manually has a very noticeable performance gain throughout teams.

            As it stands, I'm going to write a powershell script to run on all the workstations I manage periodically to close teams and clean this up as a refresh of teams.

            • Slow UI

              The native Mac client is very slow compared to either Slack or Hipchat when switching between channels or replying to a conversation.

              Please improve the performance of the application.

                • Scrolling in chat is slow to load messages

                  Scrolling through past messages in chat or search is too slow to be useful to do on big threads. Often instead of searching for what someone said yesterday, people just ask again because it is so annoying. It defeats the propose of communicating well the first time, because you will be asked again anyway.

                  • Teams desktop app is incredibly slow to start up

                    I notice this particularly because I have to restart Teams a lot due to its poor handling of network changes/intermittent disconnection.

                    Here's a scenario:

                    - I need to quickly post a message to someone on Teams
                    - Teams won't post it because it's disconnected and won't reconnect
                    - I quit Teams
                    - I restart Teams, and then I wait for a minute or two before I can post a message (not an exaggeration)

                    Like most people on here, I'M BUSY, so I don't have the time for all this messing around. Teams needs to be faster, more reliable, and of…

                    • Reduce Memory Usage

                      Microsoft Teams is currently the most RAM consuming application on my Windows 7 Professional Laptop. I would expect there is room for improvement.

                      • screen sharing sucks

                        How is that the free version Skype screen sharing have no issues, at the same time the paid version (Teams) always have issues, even though the teams screen share is a wrapper on existing skype?

                        • Pick up where you left off

                          It would be great that Teams had pick up where you left off functionality, so you do not need to scroll up until the last message you saw in a group chat. Ones you open the a channel you remind in the place of the conversation you where, last time you visited that channel.

                          • Need a support for Free Teams

                            Free Teams needs some kind of basic and non priority support link/hub/anything. Because if it breaks, you don't have a place to file a ticket or just ask. I can go to various forums, but that's just wasting my time. Currently me and some other users (based on feedback on the forums) can't get into our free orgs create afew months ago and don't know where to go with this. I can't recommend free Teams to anyone because of this.

                              For some reason the latest update has Teams using between 8% and 25% CPU idling, doing nothing. There is an issue with this update.

                                • CACHE APPS / USAGE

                                  I really like the integration efforts to move all of MS Office 365 Services into a single app... but it becomes extremely frustrating when you switch from one app to another.

                                  For example, I've added a 'Planner' tab and a 'Notebook' tab to one of my channels... when I switch between the two, Teams re-loads the entire Plan/Notebook, and I don't resume where I left off.

                                  So much wasted time in page loads / finding where I was to move forward.

                                      The teams app slows down all the computers. I tried installing it on Windows 7 and windows 10. no difference. Many a times system crashes. I believe I will need to uninstall the app.

                                      • network bandwidth

                                        Looking at UserVoice there are a few requests dealing with network utilization. Microsoft provided guidance on network bandwidth requirements for media traffic with Skype(https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/skypeforbusiness/plan-your-deployment/network-requirements/network-requirements). This helps provide large enteprise customers guidance during architectural decisions as well as assist with right sizing their current audio/video usage. This is missing for Team and is needed to assist customers sizing their environment correctly as well as assist with future planning. This can help decrease some of the network bandwidth asks as customers will have better guidance on what is expected with Teams over SfB

                                        • Replying slows down the client

                                          When there are a long list of replies in a thread (conversation) as opposed to starting a new conversation, it slows the client down terribly such that it becomes practically unusable
