    • Teams view filter

      I am a consultant that is visiting multiple clients a week, sometimes a day. I have associates on each site. I usually have 2 SharePoint's set up for each client. One for internal only coordination and one for internal and external (client as members) coordination. When I open Teams App I would like to apply a filter as to which Teams/Groups/Plans are visible so that the client I am visiting can not see on my screen other client information or data. Any thoughts?

      • Sort files default by name in teams.

        Sort files in Teams. Under files, the files are not sorted in "Names" by default. I have to press the sort button Name every time.

            • Remove menus from textbot

              YOU CANT SIMPLY COPY A MESSAGE YOU RECIEVE BECAUSE AN OPTIONS MENU (three dots) AND LIKE BUTTON BLOCK IT!!

              This is incredibly fristrating, inconvenient and dumb. Formatting should be removed too when you paste things in there or as you copy it or as you receive it. Any mix will do.

              Have those options available OUTSIDE the frigging text box itself or remove them or allow me to remove them.

              • Problem with Deleted Messages - Incoming Messages Should Remain Undeleted

                Our company is testing Teams with key personnel. Eventually, we would like to deploy it company wide and use Teams as our primary means of official communication. In order for this to happen, we are noticing a flaw in the deletion of messages. We are a company that strives for transparency and rely on written communication to achieve that goal. However, we cannot rely on Teams to overtake Outlook because when a message is deleted, it gets deleted from both sender and recipient. Is Microsoft working on this flaw? We want it where incoming messages are still present in the…

                  • Provide the detailed information about “Trend” in Microsoft Teams

                    ■Title(件名):
                    Teams のトレンド表示について

                    Provide the detailed information about “Trend” in Microsoft Teams
                    ***************
                    ■Description(内容):
                    現在の Teams ではいいねが多いファイルに関してトレンドというもので表示される動作を確認しております。
                    ユーザーにファイルを展開する際、トレンドのものだけ随時確認するような運用を検討しております。
                    しかしトレンドとして登録されているファイルを確認し ”いいね” 数を新規のファイルに対してテストしましたが、トレンドとして表示されない動作を確認しました。
                    制限事項などがあれば意図的にトレンドとして表示する事ができますが現時点では公開情報などもないため確認ができません。
                    本機能の制限事項がわかれば Teams をより良い製品として使用できると検討しているため機能の拡張を要望いたします。

                    We are thinking about using Trend to share files with our users. If we can put any files into Trend section, all they have to do is checking “Trend” section at their timing. We thought that if a file got many Likes, the file goes to the Trend automatically. We created a new file and add Likes to that file to test the behavior in the Trend. However, the newly created file…

                    • Full Desktop Version for Chromebooks

                      Glad to see Teams available to be downloaded on chromebooks, however, the layout has only been adopted from the mobile UI, which doesn't translate well to Chromebooks desktop like experience. Please bring a version optimized for larger screens to the Google Play Store.

                        • Better access to hidden group chats

                          When dealing with 1-to-1 Chats, you have the option to "Hide" them within the UI. When you initiate a chat with a person after it has been hidden, the history is still there.

                          When dealing with Group Chats, you also have the option to "Hide" the chat within the UI. However, the only way to get back to that Group Chat is to start a new chat, and add all previous chat participants back in, at which point, the group chat history is displayed. If you are unable to recall every participant that was in that Group Chat, there is…

                            When I am in a chat or conversation and I need to take a screenshot and send it, it would be nice to be able to just click a button, take the screenshot and send it as part of the conversation or chat without having to leave Teams.

                              Today's Teams (desktop) is usable but not great -- it hasn't unlocked its full potential as an organizational collective intelligence platform. To get there, following features should be offered (to users who need/subscribe):

                              - WHAT: Multi-window, each supports a different "persona", and one or multiple personas can be tied to the same MS account
                              - WHY: allow user switch between identifies. Very useful for consultants/contractors

                              - WHAT: tabbed view (like a web browser).
                              - WHY: by switching between tabs the user can quickly switch between documents, channels, conversation threads, teams... and apps. Everyone is multitasking today. That's why IE also…

                              • can I use Chrome (chrome.exe --app=https://teams.microsoft.com) instead of Desktop app

                                Teams Desktop isn't really Teams app; it's just Electron (Chromium?).

                                In an enterprise environment with roaming profiles, it is impractical; it installs per-user; it updates per-user.

                                Teams is a PWA.

                                I can use Chrome directly and get similar results;

                                chrome.exe --app=https://teams.microsoft.com
                                Operationally, this is vastly superior;

                                no need to install or update Teams app

                                in an environment with roaming profiles that are deleted at logoff, the computer becomes much more responsive (in the user's perception).
                                Chrome is already deployed on all computers and is already self-updating
                                If people use Chrome as well, will it "share" the application memory, reducing…

                                • Desktop application

                                  Desktop application takes a full window.it should be a small window at the corner and pop up the particular chat when someone pings. In this desktop application, sometimes it's difficult to find the person, who is trying to reaching you. Especially when someone is trying to reach through team chat.

                                  • Kein Klingelton über die Lautsprecher zu hören, wenn ein Kopfhörer eingestöpselt ist.

                                    Es ist kein Klingelton über die Lautsprecher zu hören, wenn ein Kopfhörer eingestöpselt ist. Dadurch werden eingehende Nachrichten und Anrufe kaum wahrgenommen. Dies ist ein deutlicher Rückschritt gegenüber Skype.

                                    • bad keyboard layout

                                      Teams using a different keyboard layout then what is set in Windows. It is set to Hungarian 101 and teams works like it were set to "Hungarian". This layout is not even installed and not selectable! There is no other apps that has this problem (not Chrome etc).

                                      • Windows app should notify me of new chats/messages even when minimised

                                        Recently the desktop app has not usually notified me of new chats/messages when it is minimised to the system notification area.

                                        When I restore the window it checks for new messages within a few seconds.

                                        • Calls support in Firefox (Mozilla)

                                          From our perspective it is really instrumental for people to use Firefox and still join our calls. There are some clients of ours who only use Firefox and we cannot force them to go through hops to join calls (like installing Chrome or Teams just to talk to us once). Please add that support! Thank you very much in advance!
