  1. Team conversations - Font formatting and threaded conversation

    Currently, the way team conversations and personal conversations are structured makes it very difficult to read. The threads are difficult to follow, new messages by default are written as a new thread, which is frustrating when you are trying to reply to another post. The font and the arrangement of the UI makes it difficult to read in general. Slack has a much better UI for conversations - big fonts, easy to follow format, line spacing and information focus points that make it easy for the user's eyes to focus on the line they need. Replies are better handled too.…

    • Move to top (move team to top of list, team reorder)

      I would *love* to have a simple "Move To Top" feature where I can:
      * click the elipsis on team
      * select "move to top"
      * have that team moved to the top of the list

      this could also have a "move to bottom" I guess

      I constantly find myself dragging the "most active" team to the top of my list in the client, as it helps me prioritise what I am currently working on. to do this via click+drag it usually takes a few goes as I can't see to click+drag an item to the top if there are…

      • It’s too noisy, can’t find my way around the UI. Too much going on. It’s not simple.

        We have just transferred over from Slack and I find that so easy to use. I am not associated with Slack but am comparing the two because I use them side by side. Teams just feels cluttered and hard to navigate.

        • In Teams carousel, lable archived Teams

          Archived teams are presented in the Teams carousel, which is nice because it provides access to archived information. But I would like if the carousel labeled the team as archived -- joining a team expecting to participate in an active discussion but finding that the team is archived wastes time.

          • 文字の大きさがクライアント側で変えられない

            クライアントのアプリケーションで表示文字のサイズくらいは変えられるようにしたい。
            一般的なアプリケーションでは普通に出来ることが出来ないようでは競争が激しいSNS分野としては遅れていってしまう。

            • Hide or Collapse the bulky "Reply" option in Teams Channel threads

              There is a lot of wasted space by the "<-- Reply" bar that shows under each message posted in a Teams channel. It would be more compact to make this something that appears when hovering over a message.

              • Within Chat's "Recent" tab, include day of week beside the MM/DD date for past conversations

                The "Recent" tab of Chat lists past conversations. The dates for these are given (on my machine) in MM/DD format. I would find it helpful if an abbreviation of the day of week were included. For example, "1/10" would read "Thu 1/10."

                I remember the day of week better than raw date numbers. Such a feature could help me provide context to the conversation without having to pull up what day of the week the date corresponded to.

                  • Teams chat is broken

                    Chat doesn't work, it won't read old chat and aren't updating on new chats either. Have now tried in 3 different chats and the windows app and get the same problem all the places.

                    Please make this work!

                    • Shifts - Flag Coverage Shortage

                      I like having a visual confirmation that I don't t have too many people scheduled for lunch/break simultaneously. The "Staff per 30 minutes" value in Day view provides this confirmation, but requires viewing individual days. It would be nice to have a weekly or monthly view that could provide a quick way to verify you've got enough people working at all times.

                      (1) If the user had a grid where they could indicate the desired # of people working each hour of the day, any times that were over or under the desired value could be flagged. This could become…

                      • Code markdown fails if ` backtick is normal (non-dead) key or pasted in

                        For code markdown formatting to work, it isn't enough to just type backticks ` in any old way, and copy-pasting three backticks certainly won't work.

                        For it to work, backtick for inline code (or the last of the three backticks for code blocks) must be typed *using a dead key* and then a space.

                        (A dead key is a key that does nothing on its own if you press it once, but rather waits for another keypress, whose character it is meant to modify. Like typing "~" followed by "n" to get the Spanish "ñ"; the ~ tilde is, on…

                        • Chats & Channels Need a Pop Out Option

                          While working on a document and also chatting with teammates it would be invaluable to have a pop-out option for chat. Ideally we should be able to pop out the individual chat, the entire chat window, and even teams or channels. This would allow for a more efficient day.

                            • More Difference in the UI between the Teams Channels tab and Chat tab

                              I love the UI of Teams, but it can be confusing from first glance if I am in a team channel or chat window since they look so similar.

                              It would be much simpler if the Chat had a more differentiated color palate or UI element so that you could more quickly tell which tab you are in.

                              • Make the horizontal scroll bar floating in the code snippet view

                                When someone sends a long code snippet, you extend it, the horizontal text is likely to overflow the view area and be hidden, resulting in a horizontal scroll bar at the snippet's end.
                                If you scroll up and try to read one of the lines, scrolling to the side forces you to first go back down, scoll to the side, and then go back up because the scroll bar remains at the end of the snippet, hidden from the viewport.
                                Making the horizontal scrolling bar floating would be really helpful.

                                  • icon for channels

                                    Ability to add icons for channels. Currently only we are allowed to add icons for Teams. Would be great if we have the ability to customize the channels as well. It would make more sense if the channels keep growing and it would be really easy to identify the channels.

                                    • Fix Chat interface so "more options," "save message," and "like message" don't cover text or hyperlinks

                                      The extra buttons that appear when you hover over a message covers the end of the text. I received a hyperlink to click on but cannot due to the buttons that cover it. I've attached a .gif so you can see the issue. My workaround at the moment is to copy the text and paste it somewhere else and click on the hyperlink from there.

                                      • Cannot control and click on the entire content in screen sharing

                                        When someone is sharing content and you have got control you cannot click all of the content as the client meeting controls are displayed no matter what. A good example is if you control another PC and wants to click the start menu in Windows...just not possible!
                                        There are some similar posts about this but none that covered this specific detail. The auto-hide feature is OK as well as run the meeting in full screen mode but still this limitation comes around.

                                        Please see my attached screenshot.
