  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Improve copying data from Teams

    Copying data out of teams works very poorly. As soon as I mouse over a short piece of text, like an ID number, it changes to three ellipses, with the ribbon and thumb. I can no longer select the text I want with my mouse! This is very poor design.

  5. 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…

    working on it  ·  Warren responded

    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.

    -Warren

  6. Slow, slow and slow... :/

    It is is just too slow :/

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Make it faster to switch between accounts/orgs - it's very slow

    It can take 30s to switch between orgs/accounts in MSTeams - length of time makes the multi-org setup cumbersome to use...

  13. limited cpu after sleep mode

    Sorry but I couldn't find anything in the known issues and quite franckly I was shocked.
    Our company have been dealing with a lot of CPU lockups occuring when Teams desktop app has been used and the computer goes to sleep mode.
    When waking up, we often see limited CPU usage.
    In my case, I can't use more than 34% of the CPU and from what I have been told, this was caused by Teams app leaking a process that we can't see in taskmgr.
    Therefore, we can't kill it in any other way than by rebooting.
    I have formatted…

  16. 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.

  17. Remember view settings

    For any tab or project, remember the last view used, including collapsed or expanded sections. IE, when I leave planner in one channel to check another and come back, I want to see the planner, not the conversations. When I leave and go back to Chat, keep my groups collapsed. When I open planner, I want to open to Tasks, not Activity.

  19. Performance Improvements

    Kaizala is one of the fastest apps for instant messing, outpacing even WhatsApp. It would be great if Teams chat worked as quickly. I also have performance problems when on Android, the teams app simply never recieved messages when the app is closed. It is allowed to work in the background, but still nothing.

  20. Give me the easy to find link to stop Teams from auto-loading, it is a resource hog and I don't want it to launch until I tell it to launch.

    I HATE programs that start auto-launching without my permission and don't make the setting easy to find to turn of this "feature". Microsoft, make your dialog boxes all re-sizeable and stop setting things like Cortana so users cannot shut it off and be in control of their hardware. This is just ridiculous, the most basic of functionality and user consideration. The gear icon for settings in Teams is oddly located at the bottom in the "Join" section and it does not function as expected to take me to an actual settings page but instead goes to "manage teams". Who on…
