  1. Pin the side bar flyout

    The panel that flies out from the side menu bar cannot be pinned open. This adds a number of unnecessary clicks to navigate through chats and teams.

    In an ideal implementation, you should be able to pin/unpin the flyout and have the content underneath reflow.

    This is a problem in both the desktop app and the web app.

    • Less boxes

      The block style and colors are hard to read slash follow. Unlike slack where things like status can fit in a couple short lines.

          Please see the screen shot. I downloaded an image from my email, then uploaded to my Teams wiki from my HDD. Look what happened!

          • So confusing UX

            I have 8 years dev experience in big companies.
            Your non general UX makes ppl confused to get used to it.
            where is group chat? where is dm? not straightforward.
            why the group chat is always collapsed so I should expend that every time?

            Why do you spam emails everytime as default?

            dont try to make better things differently. that makes ppl go away.
            just mimic the major one first and add features one by one later

            your benefit is Team is for free. use that one first.

            Cheers,

            • Notifications Sounds PLEASEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

              Please enable the option of sounds for notifications! I don't pay any attention to the bar, and there are users out there who completely hide it. Most of the time I don't realize someone has sent me a message until an hour later.

              It completely defeats the purpose of having this feature. Can you please enable notifications the same way it is for Skype Business?

              Thanks!

              • Mouseover on a one line comment in chat is hidden by icons

                In chat, the mouseover icons overflow the text so it's impossible to select (highlight) the text underneath.

                • The URLs when "copy link" are too long to paste into MS's own products e.g. MS Outlook. I've had to resort to using bit.ly to truncate!

                  • Have "*** is typing" messages be accurate.

                    After someone sends a message in Teams it says "*** is typing" for 2-3 seconds when in actuality they are not typing. I'm always expecting another message from people that never comes.

                        The buttons that are inserted in the message hover are too messy and ******* annoying when copying messages...

                        • Improve scrolling of Instant Messages (retain them in a cache?)

                          When you scroll in your instant message history, it will take some time for Microsoft Teams to actually load the content, during which time a placeholder is displayed.

                          However, if you scroll up two pages, when you scroll back down, it has "forgotten" you latest messages and needs to reload them again.

                          This is really frustrating and a bad UX, as this behaviour is encountered ALL THE TIME. Being the huge memory hog that Microsoft Teams is, I can't believe this is not cached better. Just cache one meg each for the twenty latest active chats, thanks.

                          • Better reply usability

                            Time and time again I see others and myself starting a new thread instead of answering in an existing thread.

                            When I hit this trap the channel conversation often is scrolled down a bit so I don't see the "Reply" link but the very prominent message box that will start a new thread. And I'll start typing.

                            Something is off here with the UX since internally, with customers and myself I'm seeing people starting new threads when they really just wanted to answer.

                            • Pop-out option when viewing a screen share

                              The screen share window currently must remain within the teams desktop application window. When I am involved viewing a screen share, it would be nice to be able to pop out the sharing window so that I can continue to use the teams application for other chats and such. This would let me use other monitors that have more space to effectively view the screen share without needing to move my teams window from the location i normally display it.

                              • Make window "active" when cmd-tab to Teams app in Mac

                                When you cmd-tab between applications on Mac, I would expect the main window to become active when I get to the next app. In Teams this doesn't happen, and I have to go to the mouse/trackpad to click on the window for it to happen (it is not that the window is minimized, it is just not "active").

                                Two main drawbacks for me from this:

                                1. The last chat message I got, and that I could read and is done with, doesn't get marked as read without me having to click on the app (slows me down and annoys me…

                                • Start a new conversation with a button/link, reply with the chat textbox.

                                  I have often accidentally started a new conversation when I wanted to simply continue a thread. The default should be a textbox continuing the conversation, with a button/link for new conversation, not a button for "Reply" and a textbox to start a new conversation.

                                    • make UI settings consistent with Windows UI settings

                                      I changed my windows settings to disable auto-hide. Still the scrollbars disappear in Teams.

                                      Please make this setting somehow available, or stop with the disappearing scrollbars - disappearing scrollbars are a waste of cpu cycles and code.

                                        • Like a post more than once

                                          Edwards wants to like things more than once. Probably his own posts.
