  1. Don't minimise Teams when screen sharing a different screen (multi-screen setup)

    Currently when you share a screen the primary Microsoft Teams window is minimised (down into the dock on Macs). When this occurs you can no longer see the video feeds of the meeting participants, chats, virtual whiteboard, etc.

    I have a 3-screen setup. When I share a screen that the primary Microsoft Teams window is not present on the application should not automatically minimise the primary Microsoft Teams window.

    Presumably minimising the window was seen as a usability enhancement or to avoid sharing the video feed as part of the screen share, however for multi-screen environments this is unnecessary.

  4. Make use of Mac Touch Bar for mute/unmute and other meeting actions

    Teams should allow the use of the Mac Touch Bar to do functions such as mute/unmute, leave meeting, show participants and so forth.

  5. Regarding the User Experience on Teams

    To the Microsoft Teams development team,

    Thank you for taking the time to read through these suggestions, and I am glad to be able to post my thoughts here in order to help create a better user experience. As a student, my experience using Microsoft Teams (specifically for Mac) has been mostly good. The app is very stable, and it runs well without using too much power. The functionality of having multiple office apps built in, with smooth integration with my One Drive makes using a single app for all my tasks a breeze.
    

    However, I do have a few…

  6. 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

    We have rolled out a fix for improving Mac performance while in a meeting. This should help with heating and perf issue on Macs.

    Please update your client (Settings→check for updates). Let us know your feedback. There are other performance improvements we are working in parallel, we will share updates as soon as they are available.

  7. Teams Meeting Causes My New MacBook Pro to Overheat

    Only when I use Teams Meeting (not Live Event), my Macbook Pro runs very hot and forces the internal fans to run at maximum. This happens whether I'm connected with 1 other person or many. The only way to fix this is to minimize the window and I get a thumbnail size image of just the active speaker. Then, the Macbook stays cools and the fans run minimally. This just started happening with the latest major update of Teams. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app, but the problem persists. My Macbook is dual boot, so I'm able to check…

  8. Allow AirPods to mute/un-mute the audio

    AirPods allow you to start/stop audio by clicking on the base of the airpod. It would be nice for Teams to consume this signal and allow the audio to be muted/un-muted.

  9. macOS notification center

    It would be extremely helpful if Microsoft Teams would integrate with macOS Catalina's Notification Center. Currently, Teams only provides a small pop up notification and if you are using 2 or more displays, you can easily miss these notifications.

  10. iPad share

    when doing MS team Meeting with the iMac or macbook, the participant would be able to share screen of the apps on their iPad or even use the whiteboard function on the iPad.
    the current MS teams on mac or even windows platform does not allow for such function.
    it's either we start our MS team meeting on an iPad to show the apps.. OR use the MS teams on the mac but limited to the share function it's integrated with.

  11. Enable sharing system sounds during screen sharing for iOS

    When using an iPad and screen sharing, system sounds isn’t available. We have to have a team member on windows share the video.

  12. Bring Microsoft Teams to the Mac App Store

    I use Microsoft Teams every day to stay in touch with everyone.
    Microsoft Teams works great on a Mac.

    I would like it if Microsoft Teams could be found in the Mac App Store, just like Microsoft 365.

  13. support for sharing MacOS full screen apps in other Spaces (virtual screens/desktops)

    Most Mac users work with fullscreen apps when they are serious to focus on something. A full screen app gets it's own Space. When using MS With Teams functionality as is, you can only share non-fullscreen windows that are on the first Space (Desktop 1) or share all of Desktop 1. When I work with MS Teams, I have to fiddle with my windows to make it work. Sometimes, I'll have the window shared, but then click to make it full screen which drops it from the share. In either case this cases meeting delays.

    Instead I'd like to share…

  15. Camera settings to control properties like brightness, contrast and gamma

    Due to different ambient light situations, it would be great to control the camera in terms of common properties like brightness, contrast and gamma to improve image quality

  16. Selecting Contact Group as attendee for a Team Meeting

    Team Meetings does not allow to send meeting invite to a contact group. I have about 120 members and have to schedule meetings every day under different channels for separate set of people from this 120. Grouping the contact is of No help as Teams meeting does not allow to select contact group.
    Copy pasting the member list also does not work.

  17. macOS: Synchronize Teams status with native Do Not Disturb status

    If my Teams status is Do Not Disturb then that should toggle my macOS Do Not Disturb. Therefore, when I'm presenting my screen and Teams automatically change my status to Presenting/Do Not Disturb then all of my notifications are suppressed.

    This corresponds with the request to move Teams notifications into the native macOS notifications to further integrate with Mac's Do Not Disturb features:

  19. Por favor incluyan la función de "compartir audio" en Teams para Mac.

    Por favor incluyan la función de "compartir audio" en Teams para Mac. Es muy importante para mí y para mis estudiantes. Y lamentablemente en las condiciones actuales no puedo cambiar de dispositivo.

    It would be great if Do Not Disturb was automatically enabled when on a team call/meeting to minimize other interruptions.
