  1. Add Powerpoint normal view

    When opening a Powerpoint file in a Teams file list, the file is in presentation view only. What I miss is the list of slides on the left hand side. I need to "EDIT" to get that. But that includes the risk of changing something unintentionally.

    • Sign-in experience is frustrating

      I realise this is not a Teams specific thing, but the Microsoft sign-in experience is extremely frustrating. I have *three* identities

      Work Email - Office365/Teams
      Work Email - MSDN subscription (different identity to above)
      Person Email- Xbox, Azure hobby work

      I cannot for the life of me work out how to use sign-in to seamlessly switch between these identities. I am often locked to one, with no way to switch to the other.

      If there is a better place to post this, please let me know.

        • Problems with files

          From a few days ago I have problems to upload files and the guest users can't view files to some teams.

          May someone help me?

          • Only the owner should be able to mark a task complete or delete it.

            At the moment anybody can mark a task complete. I would prefer that only a owner should be able to mark a task complete. Also give a possibility to archive completed tasks and deleted tasks with a search facility. Nobody other than owner should be able to delete it from there. This is important for historical record keeping and tracing. This is urgent please.

            • CMD+Tab on macOS does not bring main window up

              When switching between programs on the Mac the CMD+Tab keys will switch to the Teams Program - but the main window is often minimized. I either have to click the program on the Launcher or go via the Window menu.

              • Notifications

                It would be nice if when a notification came up, it only showed the persons name, but not the message. Then if you are projecting or have someone sitting with you, the audience can not see the message.

                  • Mac: While Sharing Screen, allow interaction with Mac's Top Menu Bar

                    This is less on an idea and more of just an issue: I was sharing my entire screen yesterday, had unpinned Microsoft Team's screen shot menu, and wanted to access some menu items in another application. But every time I moved my cursor to the Apple Menu area, the menu for Teams appeared. I had to stop sharing in order to access the menu items for that application (then reshare again to continue demoing). Please allow me to interact with the normal Mac Menu Bar while sharing my screen with Teams.

                      I want Microsoft Teams to have a function for ego feed where you can specify words that will make it pop to your attention on your desktop.

                      • osx shortcut

                        Certain keyboard shortcuts are not usable in most OS X setups.

                        For example, option+e will by default insert an accent (´) character, and the shortcut to get to Search doesn't trigger. My suggestion would be to stop using option, and instead use command or control.

                                    Issues with audio calls in recent versions

                                    We use Teams a lot and have a lot of calls with it since several months ago, but starting end of February, we keep receiving reports of random audio issues.

                                    Main one is that a user starts to talk but after few seconds his mic stops working and resumes working some seconds after. This happens in some notebook and headphones combinations, switching headphones is apparently a workaround, but not always. Restarting Teams is not helping with this issue. So users move to a different application to complete the call.

                                    Another issue is that…

                                    • Add Teams Activity Feed to Outlook

                                      My users live in Outlook. Would be nice if you could add the activity feed as a Favorite or folder in Outlook with a count of unread items. This would allow Outlook users an easy way to know to check Teams without cluttering up their inbox with Teams notifications.

                                        • Phonetic names for Team Members

                                          With companies becoming more diverse and globally distributed, is it possible to leverage cloud technology to display a Phonetic representation of a person’s name, with an option to hear how the name actually sounds.

                                          Cheers
