  1. Not being able to delete chats and conversations from the left pain is not only a major fail in the UI, it is a security issue. Fix it.

    It's very hard to believe that you don't give the option to delete chats from recent. This is BASIC functionality and not having it simply fuels the "Microsoft doesn't understand" mentality that is so prevalent.

    Also, when someone is added to a group, they immediately see all the history of the group's chat rather than just what happens from that point forward. Both of these are security issues. Fix it.

    • Ability to send voice message in chats/channels similar to WeChat/Whatsapp

      Teams, especially for those who use mobile to communicate, would like to have options to communicate via voice message in channels. This is heavily used in Asia (especially China) where people prefers to speak into short voice message than spending time typing it. Very popular for WeChat and now WhatsApp. Microsoft should provide that in Teams

      • Pop out chat

        When trying to work on something in teams while chatting with someone moving back and forth between the two is overbearing. It would be nice if you had an option to pop out Chat (including chat userlist and grouped chat windows) to a separate window so you can chat while working on items.

        • Reply button should be on the Original Message that's visible when the mouse hovers over it

          In my opinion, the Reply button takes up very valuable screen real-estate. Could this possibly just be added to each message as a button that's visible when the mouse hovers over the message, very similar to the "Save this message" bookmark icon?

            • Preferences

              Applications developed for Mac have similar functionality . Teams seems to missing preferences which every app developed for Mac OS has.

              • Add an "address book" menu to save people you find.

                Once you search and find somebody... you should just be able to add them to an address book... not have to send a message before you mark them as favorite.

                • Ability to mark a file as Saved (the bookmark icon)

                  Ability to bookmark a file as saved. Different than the "pin" uservoice item as this would be personal to a user, not global to all in the team/channel.

                  • Multiple OneDrive Accounts

                    The auto-integration with SharePoint and OneDrive is great, but it would be even better if I could also connect to my other oneDrive accounts just as I have in the actual OneDrive app.

                      • Trigger an approval for VSTS Release Management

                        Would make much cleaner experience if right from teams you can click an approve/reject with comments optional. To not have to navigate out of teams to approve would be the goal.

                        • search box does not appear if Teams window expanded less than 75%

                          When working with Teams in half screen mode, the Search box does not appear in the upper left pane until I expand the window to cover about 75% of my laptop screen. I would expect the Search box to be visible when window is in half screen mode.

                              • Microsoft Graph and/or PowerShell Management

                                Full Administration of Create, Read, Update, Delete new Microsoft Teams, Team Member linkage, and reporting. Right now, an admin can create new Unified Groups and link members to these groups via Exchange Management PowerShell Modules and Microsoft Graph. The request is to either build on these commands to add a switch for enabling the Unified Group as a Team, or new PowerShell modules for these tasks. The Microsoft Graph makes the most sense as then the OfficeDev PnP can easily extend their Modules to call these endpoints.

                                  • Notifications coming through on mobile, even when configured to only come through when desktop app is inactive, after new update.

                                    After the most recent update, mobile has lost functionality of not notifying when the desktop app is active. The setting is configured to not notify unless the desktop app is inactive on multiple users phones yet they still get notifications.

                                    • Need a quick button to view a list of all existing conversations.

                                      It is a constant problem - there needs to be a quick button to see a full list of all Conversations. Many times I need info from a particular conversation but can't remember the name or keywords. If I had a "list" of conversations (whether per Team or all conversations of all time) it would amazingly helpful. This is one fatal flaw of why i don't use teams more. So many conversations get stacked on top of others. Would be awesome to just see a list of all conversations. I like doing my searches that way.

                                      • Add Giphy tags on mouse over

                                        Sometimes it's not obvious what someone meant with a Giphy and then it would be good if you could move the mouse over it to see what tags it has.

                                        • Fix "You're missing all the action" emails

                                          I frequently get emails stating that I'm "missing all the action" in Teams for messages that I've already read in the app.

                                          The email should only be sent if I genuinely have not read the message.

                                          I'm aware that the emails can be turned off in the notification settings but I would rather prefer getting emails if I've overlooked messages in a chat.
