    • Teams in SysTray does not distinguish between Activity & Presence

      Whether you are in a meeting or got a message, in both cases you get a RED DOT. This is not clear or very helpful.

      • Add a flag to the MSI installer to clean up per user installs

        The new MSI installer is a very welcome addition, but the process of converting a machine from a per-user install to system wide is a bit of a pain.

        Why not add an option to the installer to do this when the MSI is deployed?

        • 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.

          • Desktop sharing while chatting

            In Jabber, users get an option to share desktop /screen while chatting.
            This feature is only available in MS teams while 1:1 calls or meetings.

                    • Replace Electron app with Native app that runs fast on desktop.

                      Desktop Microsoft Teams is, well, basically useless. It is the slowest app I use on any PC. It needs either some MAJOR performance improvements or a complete re-write as a Native app so that it runs fast on PCs.

                      Come on guys, you can do better than this!

                      • Restore window to same monitor it was minimized on.

                        I have 3 monitors, the Left 2 are portrait while the right is landscape.
                        The primary monitor is the landscape one on the right.

                        I place Teams on my left-most monitor. If I minimize, then go to restore it later, it returns to the right monitor instead of the same monitor it was minimized on.

                        • Teams Desktop app "snap" to maximize the screen doesn't fill entire screen

                          If I use the "Snap assist" (dragging a window to the top of my monitor to maximize the Teams desktop app, the screen "maximizes" but is about 1/4 of an inch from the top of the screen. I have duplicated this behavior on a 2-monitor setup from one computer, and using a separate laptop with a single-monitor display. I don't think it's much of an "issue" with a single-monitor set up because you wouldn't have a reason to take the steps to replicate, but it happens consistently as follows.

                          Steps to Replicate (assume 2-monitor setup):

                          1. "snap" top of screen…

                            • Option for Passive voice channels.

                              As an avid gamer, I feel like we gamers are very good at collaboration.
                              I would like to have a voice channel much like to see a passive voice channel where your team members can join and passively talk to each other as they work Much like how discord or team speak works in addition to what already exist in teams. This also will break up the monotony of needing excessive Skype meetings. For people whom work in the department, but are Geographically separated, and cant getup from their desk to just ask a teammate a simple question.

                              • Stop need to restart Teams when PC is intially offline but connecting shortly

                                we run MS Team in our organization and one of the things that really bugs me is how the startup when PC starts is handled. A good example of handle the startup is Skype for business if you do not initially have a network connection or lets say your organization requires you connect over proxy which is initially unavailable when outside the network Skype doesn't care. It keeps checking and once you have a connection you are online. In worse case you just need to hit sign-in. MS Teams on the other hand is completely different. Although I have it…

                                  Lazy loading for chat history is implemented quite bad and without any local cache. It's quite challanging to search among older conversations.

                                  • Teams app window position

                                    I have multiple screens.
                                    I open Teams and then move it to another screen.
                                    When I close Teams and re-open it, it then opens on my main desktop screen again. This did not always happen, in previous versions of teams it would open on the screen it was last on.

                                    This behaviour seems to change from update to update - almost as if there wasn't proper version control going on.

                                    • Improved ability to handle Images and Media

                                      Images load one by one and the process of doing it is very slow. It would be nice if you could paste several images and/or media to have it end up with something like the attached where you see a preview and can expand to see the full size, or download it.

                                      This process is also especially painful on the ios mobile app (not sure on android), but if it handled images more like other mobile text apps that would be much improved.
