  1. Visual distinction between private and public teams

    Maybe add a "lock" icon to the corner of a private team "logo" (i.e. the initials in the colored block)?

    • When switching between teams it would be nice to continue at the same place and not at the general page

      When switching between multiple teams it would be nice to pick up right at the same section you most recently left instead of having to navigate back to the specific location when moving to a different team section.

      • Have WIKI added to the Activity pane.

        When updates are made to the Wiki and agents are coming in for their shift, they can select to see the activity for the Wiki and look at what the new updates were while they were off shift. The Servicedesk teams will be using the Wiki for our shift turnovers and outages so this would help our agents get the information quickly.

        • New messages don't appear after clicking "New Messages"

          I scrolled up in a conversation to read old messages. Some new messages came in. I scrolled back to the bottom and didn't see the new messages. I saw a "New Messages" button and clicked it and the new messages did not appear. I had to click the "Activity" button to see them. Please fix the "New Messages" button.

          • Microsoft Teams windows does not have a frame around so it blends into other windows underneath. It is more than annoying!

            Microsoft Teams windows does not have a frame around so it blends into other windows underneath. It is more than annoying! Windows 10 as an operating system should enforce a frame around every window/page and the frame thickness should be set by user. (Looks like currently only color can be set and theme involves a whole slew of other settings.)

              • Ability to 'ping'

                It might be good to have a functionality to 'ping' a 1-on-1 or group chat, to get attention without typing a message. The ping can be just displayed as a special type of message in the messaging pane.

                This would allow users to check for the availability of the other side without having to find a message to type.

                Of course a way of protecting against the overuse of this feature might also be required, like disabling the ping notifications or preventing people from sending pings to you in the first place by graying out the button.

                • Search box in move dialogue box

                  The "Move" function in Teams is amazingly powerful. Gone are the exhaustive user frustrations with trying to move files between SharePoint sites. Teams allows you to instantly move files from just about anywhere to anywhere.

                  When you attempt to move a file from one location to another, however; the move dialogue box lists the channels or teams you have. When users have hundreds of channels or teams, scrolling is very inefficient. They need a search box to allow them to find the destination they are trying to move things to.

                  • Home/End keys do not work when message starts/ends with an emoji

                    Steps to reproduce:
                    1) Start a chat message with an emoji.
                    2) (optional) add more text after the emoji
                    3) Hit the "Home" key on your keyboard in an attempt to place your cursor at the start of the message

                    Expected Result:
                    Cursor appears at the start of the message, allowing you to type text preceding the emoji

                    Actual Result:
                    Cursor vanishes and you are unable to type anything. You have to use your mouse to click back in the text box to start typing in the message again.

                    Other notes:
                    This bug also exists for the opposite case, when…

                    • Web Client: when selecting contact put cursor in replay area automatically.

                      currently you have to select reply area yourself which is extra click. In most cases you want to reply anyway.

                      • On iPad app, if you use the Files tab to view an image, it opens an integrated image viewer. Once that opens, there is no way to get out.

                        If you're going to use a view function, there needs to be a way to return to the Files tab.
                        Only way out is to close Teams and restart the app.

                          • Use standard mouse pointer for title bar buttons.

                            In the desktop app, the mouse pointer changes to a hyperlink hand when hovering above the title bar buttons (minimize, close, back, etc.). This isn't consistent with any other app I've seen, so it disrupts the expected user experience. Please change to the standard mouse pointer.

                                    • Keep track of outstanding conversation responses

                                      I'd like a way to keep track of conversations I'm having in a channel. We are actively using conversations to monitor tasks not appropriate for Planner; items that come up in normal conversation. I'd love for a bot or something that can track unanswered conversation requests.
