  2. Reliability issues: crashing, hanging, freezing

    Literally Teams will crash 5 or 6 times a day. Hugely annoying and unproductive.

  3. In Teams chat, improve the time lag between posting a message and being blocked by DLP.

    We have introduced DLP in Teams chat. However, there is a time lag between posting a message and being blocked by DLP. The time lag is about 5 to 20 seconds. Until it's blocked, the recipient sees the message you want to prevent. This time lag is fatal to prevent the leakage of sensitive information. We call for urgent improvement.

  4. In Teams chat, DLP policy doesn't work when editing after posting. I want you to improve DLP so that it works even after editing.

    In Teams chat, if I send a message once, then edit the posted message and repost it, the DLP policy does not work.
    In the first post, even if the DLP policy blocks sensitive information, if you edit the message and repost it, the DLP policy will no longer block it.
    Since DLP should be a data loss prevention solution, DLP policies should work after editing.
    I would like to request urgent improvement.

  5. Delete, archive, or hide multiple assignments

    I would like to clean up my class Teams account. I think the ideal would be to sort assignments into quarters and hide the ones I don't need right now. A minimum would be to delete the old ones- although it would be nice to keep them for the next quarter in case of disputes about grades. I know I can delete them one at a time, but it would be nice to do in batches.

  6. Poor performance on MacOS

    I can't use teams with out it lagging severely. When I go and look at the processes running, It always looks like the 'helper' is taking up crazy amounts of CPU and it lags out the application to the point of it almost being unusable.

    I've tried closing the application, rebooting, re-installing, checking for updates, etc.. nothing works.

    I'm on macOS Mojave 10.14.2

  8. Multi-tasking and Notifications

    I am a student and have enjoyed using Teams, and I think it has many great features; however, I would like to suggest how it even further enhance the experience. Unlike most applications, Teams only allows you to view one screen at a time. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have resorted to conducting school online. That ability to only view one screen at a time has proved to be less than desirable because most of my teachers will post a resource in the form of a PDF and then a separate document to answer questions. I have to close…

  11. Microsoft Teams is using a lot of data, it's data usage is too high, Microsoft Teams can get better with low data usage in long meeting.

    Microsoft Teams is using a lot of data in a short period of time, it's data usage is too high, Microsoft Teams can get better with low data usage in long meeting.
    Please make a solution on this.

  12. Teams Insanely Slow If Video Used

    Teams - and Windows - becomes incredibly slow once video or desktop sharing is enabled. This is on a Surface Pro 7, Core i7, 16 GB RAM. 25-35% CPU usage by Teams. Even get audio cut-outs. Note that I have Bluetooth speakers, in case that is affecting anything.

    Are you using software video decoding instead of hardware? I can't understand why this is so insanely slow. Everything is slow to tap in Teams.

    It's been like this for a while, but it's appearing WORSE lately.

    Perhaps add a hardware decoding feature?

  13. contact groups

    Contact Groups within Teams should have an automated button that starts a group chat with that contact group, similar to tags.

  14. Switch between accounts

    Give teams the ability to switch between accounts. I have to log in and out everytime I want to change accounts that represent different companies. Also, if it was more integrated with outlook, it would make my life better.

  15. Allow using Large Gallery View's single video feed in smaller meetings

    TL;DR: Allow using the LGV even in small meetings to get the benefit of downloading a single video stream instead of several, when the available bandwidth can't handle several streams.

    There's several places where the Internet connection has very small bandwidth, or is very spotty. Our kids' school uses Teams and creates meetings with at most 6 pre-school/elementary grade students at a time. This means the option to use Large Gallery View is disabled for them, and almost every time they have issues because they each see 1, 2 or 3 video feeds from the other participants (but video is…

  17. Audio Enhancement for Musicians/Bands

    Thousands of band, chorus, and orchestra directors are teaching music virtually via Microsoft Teams. I would like to have the option to prioritize audio bandwidth, rather than video, and also be given the ability to disable echo cancellation to accommodate music’s broad dynamic ranges. Currently, it is impossible for multiple musicians to unmute themselves and perform together, which means my classes of 50+ students are never going to be able to use this program with more than one person unmuted at a time.
    Lastly, and I'm not sure if this is even possible, but timing for audio seems to be…

  18. Bulk Hide older chats

    I think bulk closing older chats will make teams faster. i suspect having all of these old chats available and visible makes teams slower.

  19. Improve Teams admin center interface

    If we slit up/down when we mouse over the navigation bar in the Teams admin center, the unfolded menu will show up on the wrong position. If we zoom out the interface, the position of the menu will be reset.
