  1. Open links to teams in Desktop App

    SITUATION: When you receive a link to a Teams file or folder, or really anything in Teams, like a Planner task - it sends you to the sharepoint site, regardless of whether you have the Desktop App installed and even if it is open.

    RESOLUTION: Make links to any Teams elements open directly in the Teams Desktop App

    This will save so much time and frustration from people, and also make Teams seem like a more integrated solution for everyone.

  2. Enable full SharePoint navigation

    I've linked to a communiction SharePoint homepage in a tab in teams expecting it to essentially be the full SharePoint experience but it cuts out the navigation and literally just shows the web parts of the home page.

    I want to be able to navigate the SharePoint as normal from here but from some reason Teams cuts this out.

  3. Ring on all Devices - Incoming Call

    When a Call comes in, it only rings in the headphones. But as we don't wear our headphones all day long, sometimes we can't hear it ringing.

    Please make an option to ring on all attached devices (speaker + headphones).

  4. consistent and flatten UI and badges

    There are WAY too many tab-like layers in the UI leading to many ways to see the same content and inconsistent badges/indicators.

    Suggestions:
    1. Remove the side bar with "Activity", "Chat", "Teams", etc. Switching between them constantly is very annoying.
    2. "Activity" should cease to exist. I should be able to see the most recent activity in a flat UI via badges.
    3. Make badges or indicators consistent. Using a red badge for unread messages AND then on the contacts using a red badge for busy status is very confusing to a casual glance to see what you missed. I…

  7. Fix Copy/Paste format in Teams

    When you copy a json or an xml from a chat on a notepad, the format is broken completely. Add line breaks, spaces everywhere when the chat is correct.

  8. Allow us to change/hide “Get an app for Windows” message when we open Teams from browser

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    ブラウザーで開いた際の動作について
    Allow us to change/hide “Get an app for Windows” message when we open Teams from browser

    ***************
    ■Description(内容):

    現在 Teams をブラウザーで利用した際には、最初に ”Windows アプリを入手” の項目が表示されます。
    Windows 端末に既にインストールされている場合でも、この表示となります。
    そのため、不要なインストールをユーザーが実施してしまうことが散見されます。
    この表示を非表示にする、もしくは、入手ではなく切り替えるボタンを表示させるなどの機能の拡張を要望します。

    When we open Teams from browser, “Get an app for Windows” message is shown even the app have already installed to the Windows device.
    Therefore, some users performed unnecessary installation of the app, so I would like to see the feature to hide this message or show the switching button to installed apps instead of “Get an app” message.

  9. Ability to archive Chat Conversations

    Please add the ability to archive and/or delete conversation history form the Chat conversations. It's terrible to open a chant while sharing a screen and everyone sees your past chats.

  11. I want to change the connection destination of the translation function to Microsoft Translator, which registers my own dictionary.

    I register my own dictionary with the Microsoft Translator API.
    Translation with Microsoft Teams also wants to change the connection to the custom customized Microsoft Translator API.

  12. User expericence with multiple tenants

    When you use multiple tenants the experience is awful. Within my organisation I am trying to promote everybody to use teams to call me. When I switch to another organisation (e.g. my client's environment that was shared with my corporate account) however and people call me I get a missed call alert after a while but the actual call will never be received.

    This means that while I am a guest in a different organisation, I cannot receive any calls from my own organisation even though I'm logged in with the account of my own organisation.

  13. Sort files default by name in teams.

    Sort files in Teams. Under files, the files are not sorted in "Names" by default. I have to press the sort button Name every time.

  14. Support for Citrix and RDS Environments

    Support for the desktop Teams application to be installed directly into Program Files and not into the users AppData.

    Currently this method is not viable for a RDS environment such as Citrix or Horizon View.

  15. Allow client to export my chat messages

    Individual and group chats absolutely has to have the ability to export it out as a word document or such. For a large business sometimes the context of a chat has to be copied out for various reasons and to not have the ability to do that is simply insane. There needs to be an export option (PDF, DOC ECT.) included in chats. Saving one individual message is not adequte.

  16. hover

    Hover Options

    I suggest moving or removing the hover options on chat messages. The problem with them is that when you hover over the message, you can no longer highlight the covered-up portion of the message - which is a problem if you're trying to copy and paste something out of the chatbox, especially on shorter messages.

  18. I want to hide the call icon.

    It is possible to hide by assigning [App Setup Policy].
    This behavior disappears from the tabs but is summarized in the Added Apps (...) tab.

    Please implement the function to hide completely.

  19. Team Dashboard / Landing Page

    When you click on a Team, it would be nice if you got a dashboard for the team / landing page instead of going directly to the "general" channel.

    This would be a great place to roll-up information for activity in the team:
    - recent conversations (from all channels within the team)
    - recent or all documents (similar to the OneDrive landing page, but scoped to the Team
    - search
    - membership list
    - pinned content
    - static content (to post general team information)

  20. Prevent automatic login prompt for Teams

    We would like to prevent the automatic login when MS begins the deployment of the Teams client with Office 365 ProPlus. We very much want to deploy the Teams client so we would like it to be integrated with ProPlus, but the auto login will cause confusion for our community in the short term.
