  1. Mac Teams Helper: Takes up too much CPU and makes app almost unusable

    I can't use teams with out it lagging severely. When I go and look at the processes running, It always looks like the 'helper' is taking up crazy amounts of CPU and it lags out the application to the point of it almost being unusable.

    I've tried closing the application, rebooting, re-installing, checking for updates, etc.. nothing works.

    I'm on macOS Mojave 10.14.2

  2. Fix Dragging Screenshot Preview Window to Drop onto Chat or Channel

    On macOS 10.14 or later, when you take a screenshot with any keyboard shortcut, you get a preview window like in the attachment right above the dock near the Trash.

    You can't drag the screenshot preview window and drop it into Teams like you can for...any other app like Outlook.

  3. Quote and reply to a specific message in a chat - on MacOS app!

    Quote and reply to a specific message in a chat is available on iOS and other platforms, but not on MacOS yet. Very frustrating.

  4. Dock options like changing status

    Would be helpful to have some actions when right clicking the Dock icon, ie at least change our status (available, busy, etc), set the status message.

  6. Sandboxed macOS app

    Please, make the macOS app sandboxed and distribute over Mac App Store. I don't understand why do I need to enter my sudo password when installing Microsoft Teams.

  7. Allow disabling of Discrete GPU on MacBook Pro

    Teams is the only app on my Mac lighting up the discrete GPU - hence KILLING my battery life. If you won't turn it off for everyone, please allow users a checkbox to disable it themselves.

  8. Backwards Compatabile with ios 9.3.5

    I have an old iPad and looking to turn it into an office comunication device.

    Can the teams app be made available for older devices - albeit perhaps a cut down version?

  9. Catalyst Teams Mac App

    Please look at making a Catalyst version of the Mac Teams app for 10.15 (ie. iPad app on Mac).
    The current Electron app is slow and sluggish.

  10. Use a real About Teams dialog box

    No one who's using Teams on macOS likes the simple act of seeing what version they are on because the about bar is non-standard and too subtle. Just use a real About box please, this isn't hard.

  11. Ability to open Teams Window

    Mac - there is no way to open the Teams Window if accidently closed. Typically on most MAC programs you can open a base window for the App you are in from the file or window menu.

  12. Add support for Keynote presentations

    When presenting from Keynote via sharing your Keynote window you see the slide thumbnails and formatting options like you're looking at the presenter's screen instead of what is being presented. You cannot see this on the Mac that is sharing. Only on the Teams sharing screen.

  14. Add to Mac Share Menu

    I'd love to be able to have Teams in the Share Menu from different apps. Instead of having to copy and paste a link

  15. Better indication of Why Teams is Hanging?

    I'm having issues with teams where it comes up with a blank window. I've reinstalled, restarted, and other users don't seem to be having the same issue. I don't see anything in the logs that indicates what is going on. Would love some help on what things I should be looking for to fix this?

  16. Not working on slow internet connection

    The Teams app and workflow is really great, but you constantly get slowed down or even knocked out when you're on a slow internet connection (even 450 Kbit/s is not enough).

    Every couple of minutes, Teams shows "Please reconnect so we can keep your conversations going." even tough the connection is stable - but slow.
    After some time, it suggests to reload the app, which takes ages. So it's not usable at all, which is very sad, considering how great it is.

  17. OSX client updates - app quits multiple times a day

    It seems whenever the OSX client updates, we get a “An update is ready to install. Microsoft Teams is trying to add a new helper tool.” authentication request, then the app quits. Or sometime the app just quits on it’s own without any notification. When it launches again, the “loading” box then sometimes doesn’t disappear. I really want to roll this out for our teams to start playing with, but having the app quit on us ~10 times a day without notification makes it unusable.

    needs your feedback  ·  Warren responded

    Please email me your logs so I can have the development team investigate.

    You can generate logs by using the shortcut CRTL+ALT+SHIFT+1

    This will generate a txt file in your Downloads folder starting with the name “MSTeams Diagnostics Log……………”.

    Please email the logs to: TEAMSML@microsoft.com and use the Subject line of “OSX client – App Quits”

    Thank you!
    -Warren

  19. Unintended windows switching when screen sharing on Mac client

    Using the Mac client, whenever I'm sharing screen the display keeps jumping back to the team chat window. It's very annoying because I have to go back to whatever window I'm intending to share several times, everytime I try to do this. Please check it out and don't hesitate to contact me, I could provide videos of this behavior or further information about my machine.

    Thanks in advance.

    Best,

    Christian Kook

  20. MacOS freezes

    Teams for MacOS would randomly freeze.
    I can switch to it, but no windows with chats visible.
    I have to force quite it and then re-open it to use it.

    Latest MacOS 10.14.5 (18F132)
    You have Microsoft Teams Version 1.2.00.13765. It was last updated on 20/06/2019.
