  1. Updates bring application to front

    When Microsoft Teams updates on mac it brings the application to the front which prevents me from using whatever other application I was in. This is annoying, please keep the application in the background or let me turn off autoupdates (or when I want updates to occur).

    • Creepy emojis need work

      The turkey emoji is kind a freaky with the sweat rolling down it. The monkey dancing frankly looks like he is making a rude gesture.

      Missing the (island) emoji from Skype, which was nice.

      • 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.

        • Add User Current Timezone as Part of Status

          With team members traveling and often located across the world, it would be great to have an indicator of what timezone they are currently located in. Ideally, this would be based on their geographical location. If MSFT tracks this via internet connect or some other means, it would be great to display it as part of status or when hovering over the name/icon.

          • Ability to drag direct (chat) conversations & channel conversation threads out to a new window with minimal UI (similar to IM programs)

            Ability to pull direct conversations and individual conversations out of channels out to a new window with minimal UI (no activity, chat, teams/meetings/file sections). Added bonus, make these individual windows "dockable" like browser tabs that you can drag off into new windows or drag onto another window to add it as a second tab.

            It is a huge pain to use Teams right now if you have multiple private conversations going on and two or three conversations in a channel. You have to keep flipping around between the channel and private conversations, and it takes several seconds each time. And…

            • After students submit assignments and I review them, why can't they make corrections and resubmit? This is absolutely necessary!

              After students submit assignments and I reviewed them, they need to be able to correct and resubmit the assignments.

              • Video not as beneficial in team calls

                Sharing your video during a call, it should pop up who is talking so you know who is talking. Refer to Skype capabilities on video.

                  • Auto-generate Teams Meeting in an outlook email/calendar invite

                    When creating a new meeting in MS Teams, it does not generate any outlook email/calendar invite. You must find the meeting in Teams and click add to Outlook Calendar.

                    For other meeting applications (Skype, WebEx) that we are aiming to transition off of for team specific meetings, we rely on the Outlook Calendar meeting invite emails/notifications. Please allow meetings created in MS Teams to include the option to send an Outlook email/calendar invite automatically.

                    Meeting reminders in MS Teams similar to outlook would be a welcome addition (you get the reminder until you decline the invite).

                    • Joining a meeting should auto-mute your microphone!

                      Joining a meeting does not auto-mute your microphone!

                      We are attempting to use MS Team's meeting for the first time since various launch issues were fixed.

                      For all of us, the meeting auto-connected our audio and microphones and our mic's were not muted. This is a problem when you have grown accustomed to Skype for Business as Skype auto connects, but does so while muting your own microphone. Huge difference and could cause someone to overhear something they shouldn't have.

                      • email notifications

                        The email notifications need detail. They are a waste of time just telling you someone mentioned you.

                                • Connectors Browsing Broken - Can only see Visual Studio Team Services connector!

                                  Hello, I can no longer add connectors from the connector add screen. Before there were many connectors that I was able to add. Now however I can only see the connector for 'Visual Studio Team Services'. All other connectors are missing! Even when I search or try to browse no other connector comes up.

                                  Previously a few weeks ago I could add them but no longer. This is in the same Team that I'm admin of that I added connectors before. Please fix this bug!

                                  • Format correctly for copy and paste

                                    When copy and pasting from an excel cell Teams is maintaining the cell formatting, causing for the text to need a scroll box to read correctly. Given Teams is not Excel it should be employing word wrapping to display the text correctly.

                                        One Note
                                        Please change back to orignial format.
                                        I work with 2 iPads one of which changed automatically to new format even though update feature was turned off.
                                        Do not like new format.
                                        I have tried working with it and much prefer old format.
                                        Change my iPad back please
