    try this instead  ·  Warren responded

    Whether you are using PC or MAC you can already take a screen shot.

    With PC the shortcut for a selected capture area is: SHIFT+WINDOWS_Key+S
    (this will allow you to select an area and capture it as an image to the clipboard.)
    With PC the shortcut for a entire desktop screen capture is the PRINT SCREEN button on your keyboard.

    With MAC the shortcut for a selected capture area is: COMMAND+SHIFT+4
    (this will allow you to select an area and capture it as an image to the clipboard.)
    With MAC the shortcut for an entire desktop screen capture is: COMMAND+CTRL+SHIFT+3

    This should meet your needs. If you feel it does not, please provide a summary in the comments as to your use case and why the OS capture tools are insufficient for your needs.

    Thank you!
    -Warren

  2. Persistent or network change resistant connections

    Please consider implementing persistent connections.

    On some networks I have to use VPNs that fiddle with both certificates and routing tables locally on my desktop, therefore making impossible to use your product when that network change occurs.

    By implementing persistent connections, the idea is to connect from a working network and then launch the VPN that changes things.

    Otherwise, congratulations on a very interesting product.

  3. bots get all messages in channel

    Allow bots to receive all messages in a channel they've been authorized on, even if they aren't explicitly mentioned.

    This allows the ability for the bot to proactively provide help in the context, like expand ticket numbers when they're mentioned etc.

  4. Add a "cc" group to tasks

    I would like an easy way for all stakeholders in tasks to monitor them instead of having to browse multiple channels in multiple teams. The current work-around is to include all interested parties in the "assign to" group, which is not a good practice because it confuses ownership.

    I think a "cc" list in the task itself, (possibly with a column or filter in the planner app) would be a good approach to keeping all stakeholders informed.

  6. Remote Support via Microsoft Teams

    Skype for Business offers the possibility to support colleagues remote instead of using Teamviewer.

    Normal Skype and Teamviewer are our current tools

    The remote support via Microsoft Teams would be another excellent reason why my colleagues should install Teams.

  7. Does not send message when hitting the enter key on iPad keyboard

    While using teams on iPad with a virtual keyboard and physical keyboard, hitting the enter key does not send a message. You have to always hit the send button the screen. This is the most annoying experience on the app.

  9. Have the ability for Planner Tab to go to bucket based on which Channel Tab acessing from

    When you add the Planner to a new Channel Tab - you should be able to designate the focus bucket for Planner. That way you don't have to scroll to the right to find the related bucket.

  14. Auto Hide/Show side bar

    In the app when you expand a tab, it would be nice to have the ability to hover and show the team and channels rather then having to collapse tab, then select a new channel, then expand the new tab. Same thought on the tab bar.

  16. When using the MS Teams Emojis it looks like I'm chatting with 14-years-old on MSN. Could you please change them?!

    Please prevent my colleagues from thinking that I am an pedophile mid 30 guy, who is chatting with children.

  19. Log out and all Teams does is log in again ... WTF???

    So, I figure out a way to "log out" and all Teams wants to do is present a login dialog! WTF? When I leave, I want to leave! Is this some setting/behavior that employers want? Who knows? Back when we used Skype for Business, when I logged out - that was it. But Teams seems eerily 'sticky' and to keep me 'connected' in spite of MY preferences and my personal time. While you are at it - when I am 'Away' you should suppress messages and report to the originator that I am in fact 'Away'. But I guess none…

  20. PLEASE ADD FULL SCREEN VIEW WHEN OPENING FILE FROM TAB IN TEAMS

    The probelm is that it is hard to show the file at meeting the overview of the project Gantt Chart, if we don't have full screen view or zoom in/out.
