  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.

    • UserVoice: Give detailed information on progress of "working on it" ideas

      On UserVoice, there are many ideas which are in "Working on it" state which nevertheless have no updates, or updates with no information.

      Please allow us to contribute to the development.

      1. Give regular updates

      Some of the "working on it" items have had no updates from the admin team in 3 months.

      2. Make sure the regular updates have real information

      Too often the updates are just "we're still working on it, nothing to report". If you are working on it, then there should be something to report. For example, the #1 UI request, compact mode, has had no…

          • Linux client

            My team has some users on Linux, and one benefit Slack has is a Linux client. Without a Linux client on Microsoft Teams, some orgs may have to turn away in favor of Slack so everyone can participate without keeping a browser open all the time.

              • 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.

                    • Ability to change automatic startup setting without logging in.

                      Currently there is no way to change the automatic startup setting in Teams without logging in. This is a major inconvenience for guests who install the Teams app only to use the Anonymous Join option and don't plan on obtaining an actual Teams account. It gets pretty annoying for them to need to uninstall/re-install the app each time, because they can't easily figure out a way to start the automatic startup. (not all of them may be technically savvy to fiddle around with the system app startup settings)

                        • Teams Windows client greatly increases roaming profile size (Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams)

                          On Windows, Teams is available as an end user self-install app. The app installs to AppData\Local, so not part of the roaming profile. However, it stores *LOTS* of content in AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams.

                          Our organisation uses roaming profiles and profile size policy; users are beginning to exceed a [very generous!] limit, and Teams is a big cause of this.

                          Please fix!

                          • "all monitors" desktop sharing option like Skype client

                            "All monitors" desktop sharing option missing from Teams

                            Desktop sharing in Teams includes sharing 1 monitor OR sharing 1 app... in Skype for business client there is also sharing "All Monitors". When used, a presenter with two monitors will present a view showing both monitors in one window. The viewer can see both of the presenters screens in the one window. They can view this on one monitor or stretch this window across two monitors to make it much bigger and easier to see.

                              • resize the team list column to custom size

                                the column that list the different teams should be able to be resized to user liking. I understand some apps let you maximize the screen but then to switch tabs and whatnot you have to minimize to switch to another one.

                                  • 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!

                                        • 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.
