  1. Chats & Channels Need a Pop Out Option

    While working on a document and also chatting with teammates it would be invaluable to have a pop-out option for chat. Ideally we should be able to pop out the individual chat, the entire chat window, and even teams or channels. This would allow for a more efficient day.

    • Allow rearranging contacts and groups

      The new contact list is now live but it's missing the ability to rearrange contacts and groups by drag and drop like you can now do with teams and recent conversations.

      I have quite a few contacts and large groups so sorting them would be very useful.

      • 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,…

        • Remember expand/collapse contact groups

          The new contact list is now live and it has the option to expand and collapse contact groups. However when I restart teams the are all expanded again.

          It would be better if Teams remembered when I collapse a group. then I can for example hide groups of contacts I don't use as often.

          • Compact mode

            I really like Teams. I do. But the current chat layout is not suited for professional chats. It's way to space consuming. It looks like something imported from MSN with smiley's that take half of the screen. I would say that Slack have nailed it because they focused on the ability keeping a tight window with lots of chat text visible. In Teams the window is full and starts scrolling after like 10 sentences.

              • Customize Applications within Sidebar (Drag-and-Drop)

                I'd like the ability to have full control over how the sidebar is organized. Currently, you have to click the 3 ellipses to view any connected apps as well as access them. Maybe have the list scrollable or drag-and-drop the applications into any order and snap into place. Maybe integrate the ability to unlock and lock the sidebar view so you don't accidentally reorganize the app list unintentionally.

                • Quick Hide and Hide All Conversations

                  Currently in Teams it takes two mouse clicks to close a chat conversation. In Skype there is a "X" to close the conversation. This results in a single mouse click to close out a conversation window.
                  This makes it easy to rapidly close out any open conversatations you are finished with. It would be nice to have this same function in Teams.
                  The X could go either to the left of the CHAT name or next to the "...".

                  Also it is very easy for your "RECENT CHAT" tab to get filled up with several conversations and takes a long…

                        • 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.

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…

                                • It’s too noisy, can’t find my way around the UI. Too much going on. It’s not simple.

                                  We have just transferred over from Slack and I find that so easy to use. I am not associated with Slack but am comparing the two because I use them side by side. Teams just feels cluttered and hard to navigate.

                                  • Organise Teams into Groups (not just 'favourites' and 'more')

                                    On the left tab of the teams desktop, where all the teams are you have the option of adding a team to favourites and the remainder stays under "more" (essentially creating 2 groupings).

                                    Please could you add a functionality where I can customise this, add more groupings. I am part of a couple of teams now and the OCD in me wants to group them and organise them (and collapse and expand etc.)

                                    E.g. Favourites, Sales Teams, Development Teams etc.

                                    Thanks for the consideration

                                      • Multi-window for chats and more

                                        I want to have separate top-level windows for each person I'm chatting with, rather than tabs.

                                          working on it  ·  Suphatra responded

                                          It has been three months since the last update, so checking in here to let you know this is still being actively worked on. I really appreciate your patience as we work on this.

                                          I hope you’re all enjoying the holidays, and have a very Happy New Year!

                                          Thanks,
                                          Suphatra

                                          It would be good to have Teams with external users (guests) show up in a different colour scheme so that users are aware about internal/external groups at a glance. It will also help if there is a feature akin to Outlook Mail Tips which will indicate that content being shared in such Teams is visible to external users.
