  1. It would be helpful to be able to search Subject Lines or # identified words

    It would be helpful to be able to search by Subject Line or to be able to mark key words with a # to search later. When I search for #, any words that I have marked with # would show up.

  3. Issues with Links

    Links do not always direct you to the right page. Sometimes I'll link to a powerpoint but the link takes the individual to the general site. If I click the same link about three times, it'll take me to the correct page once, so its linked correctly.

  5. deleted conversation items need to be hideable

    I have 3 deleted conversation items which take up most of the page but cannot be "squashed" or hidden - this is another example of wasted space!

  6. template

    I am unsure if this already is mentioned...

    We are looking into using Teams for handling Task Force /war room meetings.

    Idea is to have a team called e.g. Incident Management Task Force, and then a new channel for each new incident. We would like to have some default tabs set up every time, like "Meeting minutes", "System status", "Actions" etc. These tabs should then have already designed notes or excel sheets.

    In this way we will be able to start up a TF very fast, and all participants can switch between the tabs and see the info they like,…

  7. Share Teams files/folder with External contacts, without requiring a login

    Currently when you add a file within a Team there's no way to share that file with an external contact.
    I would like a way share a file from within teams with external contacts. I would also like them to be able to edit selected files as well as upload new files and have them show up in the channel's Sharepoint Directory.

  8. Custom URI handlers

    Hyperlinks with non-http or non-https prefixes do not currently work such as M-Files URLs that begin with m-files://

    Please allow at least admins enable these custom URI handlers in Teams. They work perfectly in Slack :)

  9. Teams client doesn't handle resolution change well

    When moving the desktop client between monitors with different resolutions (from 3840x2160 to 1920x1200 in this case) the text becomes blurry.

  10. Allow sharing files with same name

    Currently, we are unable to share files with the same name in Teams. If one user has already shared "Hello World.docx" another user can't then share a file in the chat with "Hello World.docx" as it's name, even if the contents are different. Would like to remove restrictions for what a file can be named while being shared in chat, would help stop some confusion as to why something can't be shared.

  12. You've got Money MS, buy ICQ or AIM and just use it like you did skype.

    AOL has had better chat programs for 20+ years. Teams is garbage. Poor connectivity, poor delivered notifications and fix the damned scrolling FFS!!

  15. Voice thin client

    When Microsoft starts pushing users to stop using Skype for Business and start using teams, I would like to have the option to "pop out" a thin client for the voice and presence. Sometimes I like to have different applications open and the thin skype for business client is perfect as it does not take up a lot of desktop real estate when it comes to communication or dialing like Teams does.

  17. user interface

    should be able to collapse panels within Microsoft Teams app. For example, the panel to search and see favorites has gotten lot of white space. It makes the desktop less productive. It'd be awesome to be able to collapse it.

  18. Stay unread till pressed read botton

    When I go to Activity and press one of the new mention will automatically mark read on another thread's mention in the same channel which losts my attention. It is good to have a READ botton on the mention itself to manually mark as read, especially the mention was @ to me.
