  2. Create a separate chat window in Teams

    Instead of having to select the Chat category within teams and using the large teams screen, I would like to have a separate chat window as well as Chat Icon at the bottom toolbar.

  3. View bookmark for Saved messages

    I appreciate the new Reactions for messages. However, I also rely very heavily on Saving messages. Since adding the new Reactions, the bookmark for saved messages is no longer visible on the message without opening the context menu -- this is very inconvenient. Please display the bookmark again on the message! Thanks

  4. Multiple chat windows Multitask

    Feature from Skype for business when I am in a meeting where screen share is occurring I typically like to continue to engage with chat discussions with people that are not part of that current running meeting. With Teams you have to stay in the share or the chat session directly and not able to easily to multi-task. The best thing I could say is needed is ability to pop out a chat window with additional members without having to flip back and forth so I can put my meeting that is shared on a 2nd monitor while being able…

  5. When in a teams meeting - I would like to see both participants and chat at the same time

    When in a teams meeting - I would like to see both participants and chat at the same time. Right now - its one or the other. in Skype for Business meetings - that was not the case, we could see chat and participants in one view

  6. Turn off auto-hide

    Yesterday was my first experience with autohide for "unused" teams. When I undid the autohide, I had to resort all those hidden teams manually (I keep my teams sorted alphabetically, which Teams makes us do manually for some crazy reason. Anyway, UX first principles...Teams shouldn't determine FOR ME what's "unused" and needs to be autohidden. Particularly if it makes me redo work. I barely have the time to learn how to use teams and convince others to use it. Don't sink your own ship by taking away user control. Listen to your UX team!

  7. Reply

    Often, the <--Reply appears hidden behind the "Start a new conversation" field. This results in forking conversations rather than keeping all under a single topic thread.

    Could the Reply button move out where we already expect to see Conversation tools?

  8. Make Planner (and other apps) sticky to the sidebar.

    I do a lot of work across teams and I want to click into Planner just like Chat or Activity to easily see all tasks across teams. Sortable by priority/due date pls.

  9. Too much wasted space used, you need a compact view with the ability to hide the side bar, pictures and the chat field is way too wide.

  10. Standalone 'Chat' Interface

    While I understand that one goal of Teams is to bring all of the tools under one UX, Microsoft should consider allowing for a break out of the 'Chat' tool for user experience. While there are a number of use cases, one simple example of need is where something is being edited or viewed in the teams UX and a 'Chat' comes in, if the user clicks to view the chat, they lose their place in whatever file or video they were viewing their their other respective channel. The preference would be to have chat in one window, and the…

  11. Make plain text the default paste option

    Ctrl+Shift+V for paste as plain text is not discoverable (I only found it after coming here and searching for suggestions to upvote to add support for pasting in plain text).

    For an instant messenger, plain text really should be the default paste option--there are many of the "paste as plain text" suggestions in which others have commented to this effect.

    This suggestion is to:
    1. Make pasting in plain text the default (Ctrl + V) option.
    2. Add context menu option(s) (similar to in MS Word) for other paste options (currently, I believe this would be one option to include…

  12. More than 15 pinned conversations

    Why limit it to 15 pinned conversations? are we in the 80's? we should be able to pin any number of conversations. Now, I can't find with my team.

    Teams is supposed to make our life better not hate the product.

  13. Usage of Teams once, breaks ability to use Skype

    Dear Admins, please get on the same page as your design teams and support staff, they’re giving users contradicting information.

    I just had a conversation with Microsoft Support about the ability for a Skype user to talk to a Teams user…basically at this time there is no such thing as interoperability despite their documentation regarding coexistence modes.

    The very minute a user even tries Teams just once…they break the ability to use Skype to talk to you if you’re using Teams. Apparently it’s been in this broken state for months and is “by design.”

    Here’s the quote from the rep,…

  14. Controll "Hidden teams"

    I would like to make the users can control enable or disable "Hidden teams" on Teams.
    When the user have a lot of teams, some teams are hidden automatically. And the user need to clink on "Hidden teams", then he/she can find it.
    Actually, the user feels the inconvenience about this design because he needs to click on every time to find those teams.
    So, if there is any way to disable "Hidden teams"(Which means showing all teams), it will be more user friendly.

  16. Notifications Sounds PLEASEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

    Please enable the option of sounds for notifications! I don't pay any attention to the bar, and there are users out there who completely hide it. Most of the time I don't realize someone has sent me a message until an hour later.

    It completely defeats the purpose of having this feature. Can you please enable notifications the same way it is for Skype Business?

    Thanks!

  17. Uploading Files

    Whenever I upload a file that takes some time, I often leave the chat that I am uploading the file to. It would be nice to have some sort of notification/setting that when the file is uploaded it notifies you. OR it just automatically sends when the upload is complete. Too often, I forget about the file I was sending until later in the day.

  18. Indentation on sub-replies in conversation / threads

    When replying to someone else's reply to an OP in a thread, show this 'sub conversation' indented with the option to collapse/expand (as many other platforms / social networks do.)

    This makes larger conversations/discussions more easily navigable.

  19. Separate Individual chats from Meeting chats

    One of the biggest issues I have with Teams is individual chats getting lost among the meeting chats. Many of the meetings are things we get pulled into that I don't care about to start with. Manually having to hide 5-10 of these a day is tedious. When I'm on the Chat tab, I'd like to see individual chats. When I'm on the Meetings tab, I would expect to see Meeting chats. If nothing else, maybe a dropdown filter to choose which chats to show on the Chat tab would suffice.

  20. Customize Sidebar

    I would really like the ability to choose which apps go in the sidebar. It just makes sense.
