  2. Implement a feature that prioritizes Microsoft Teams other than other applications

    If you use Microsoft Teams desktop client, Teams performance becomes degraded when anti-virus software runs real time scan.
    So, we would like to ask to implement a feature that enforces Teams process so that Teams performance won’t be affected by other processes.

  3. 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.

  4. scroll performance - messages are grey boxes before rendering

    scroll lag : scrolling performance (i.e. to previous messages in a chat/channel) is much worse than expected - messages don't render for a noticeable period of time

  5. Stabilize the Teams performance

    Compared with Skype for Business, Teams performance tends to be unstable when the caches or service incidents effects on it. I would like you to improve the overall performance.

  6. Provide a split screen for Chat & Teams screens to be visible at the same time

    Offer the screen to have a chat overlay or transparency to when a Teams file is open.It seems that if a file is open on Teams and the Chat is active, that IM's are only visible by a blinking icon indicator for incoming IM's. Also, the performance is not as optimal when you need to click from chat to teams to check an IM and the Teams file opened closes and needs to be reopened every time

  7. Shorten time it takes to migrate user from Skype for Business to Teams Only

    Whenever i migrate users from Skype for Business Only to Teams Only, it takes more than a weekend for every client (desktop, mobile or browser) to completely register as a teams user.
    Half of the migrated users still show up as Skype for Business Users for two or more days after migrating.
    Really frustrating and its ruining the first experience a fresh teams user has.

  8. video calls

    When I do the video calls, the video of other person, shared screen eveything shows up in a single monitor. It should be allowed to see the video and screen sharing in two different monitors, like Skype. This is one of most feature I do not like it at all.

  9. 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.

  14. Please, please,please I want to be able to print out the documents straight from Teams

    My company switched from One drive and Share Point to using teams at the beginning of the year. We all absolutely love all the features and tools that Microsoft teams has.
    But there is one thins that makes it so inconvenient- I cannot print the docs straight away from the teams up. In order to print any document (word or excel) I have to ether download it first or open in the browser. In Onedrive and Sharepoint we were able to print it straight away without additional steps.
    Please, please, please add this simple feature that will safe us all…

  15. Battery usage on Windows 10

    There are many comments and ideas about battery usage on IOS and Android but I've noticed that the battery usage on my laptop has increased somewhat.

    When I go to Start > Settings > System > Battery > 'See which apps are affecting your battery life' and change period to 1 week i can see that Microsoft Teams is using 31% of battery. Second place is Outlook with 14% so its definitely an issue.

    Interestingly, i use Outlook all day, every day heavily and its only using that much battery. Teams is always in my sys stray and i rarely…

  16. It is a memory hog.

    Don't even have to use it. Just leave it idle, nd memory usage keeps creeping up. Currently it sits at 930MB.

  17. Pre-order charges and refunds

    When you choose to Pre-order a game, when you choose your payment method it should charge the same day. At the moment when paying with any kind of card, it will not charge you until 10 days before said product is released. If you are paying with Microsoft credit, it will charge immediately. If you are paying with any kind of card, it should charge in the form of Microsoft credit to streamline the process and avoid refunding/canceling. For me, I have had to refund the purchase of a highly anticipated game to avoid all over-drafting fees as I no…

  19. 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…

    Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.

  20. Teams Chat folder should not take up mailbox storage space or users should be able to archive it.

    We have users with F1 licensing which means they only have 2GB of storage space available. now that we've implemented Teams, users mailboxes are filling up....because of the hidden and inaccessible Teams Chat folder in Conversation History. If they try to use mailbox cleanup, this hidden folder doesn't show up as an option for them to clean up or archive this folder. It's not easy for admins to access it to clear it either. This is a problem.
