  1. User Interface

    The UI takes up a lot of screen real estate. Allow users to collapse it down to the navigation bar, then expand when actively using the program.

  2. Cockpit

    In my "Team" I want to be able to create a channel tab that provides links to several other tools and/or websites like a cockpit using tiles. Each tile has an assigned hyperlink that takes me to the tool/website or it opens up in teams directly (preferred). With a hover-over I can see a short description of the tile.

  5. Need better visibility of saved messages. Perhaps move the icon to the left-hand toolbar?

    I like saving messages but always forget to check them. It would be good to have better visibility and access to them. Can access to saved messages be moved to the left-hand toolbar?

  6. Make the user's display a humanoid icon instead of an initial

    Please implement a setting method to make the display of the user whose profile picture is not set on Microsoft Teams be a humanoid icon instead of the initials.

  7. The start bar icon is very decieving

    The icon for Teams shows the current logged in users' status but the name of the person to whom focus is selected within the chat window. If I was to glance at it it seems like Barb is free, but she is not. I am free but she is in focus in the client. Very confusing.

  8. Make the forward and back buttons' navigation include the video window pane.

    Why is it that the video window pane is not considered part of the navigation? I can use the forward and back buttons to interrupt my viewing and navigate away from my meeting, but not to get back to it after doing so. What gives? Is there a setting I'm not aware of here?

  9. Audio on the Mobile App but Screenshare on the Desktop App

    I'm beginning to like Teams...however one feature I really need is starting to REALLY bug me. If I'm out and about and I take a call from a colleague on the mobile app and he/she wants to screenshare with me - it's no good using the mobile app for that for many reasons. What I'd love to do is continue using my mobile for audio but screenshare from the desktop. If I do that it cuts my audio off...and sometimes I don't have a headset or similar to hand so would really like to use the mobile for voice while…

  10. If Teams hits issue, automatic restart

    When Teams detects an issue and needs restarting, it should restart instead of telling the user to restart. I have this happen more and more in my production space.

  11. Shifts time clock on desktop

    At the moment, shifts time clock is only available on mobile. It would be useful to add the time clock on desktop too.

  12. reactions "developer preview"

    The Teams "Developer Preview" doesn't have the multiple-reactions feature yet. How is it possible that a new feature is rolled out without hitting the developer preview first?

  13. Logout

    Log out button should be promoted to a level on the main screen, not buried in settings.

  14. Option to control default action of [Edit] button on Word/Excel/PowerPoint viewer

    I want to control default action of [Edit] button on Word/Excel/PowerPoint viewer in Teams. [Edit] button default action is "edit in Teams" now, but I want to set default action to "edit in Word/Excel/PowerPoint(desktop client)".

  15. consistent and flatten UI and badges

    There are WAY too many tab-like layers in the UI leading to many ways to see the same content and inconsistent badges/indicators.

    Suggestions:
    1. Remove the side bar with "Activity", "Chat", "Teams", etc. Switching between them constantly is very annoying.
    2. "Activity" should cease to exist. I should be able to see the most recent activity in a flat UI via badges.
    3. Make badges or indicators consistent. Using a red badge for unread messages AND then on the contacts using a red badge for busy status is very confusing to a casual glance to see what you missed. I…

  16. Room mode

    Have a "room mode" in the desktop version of the app.

    Currently we rely on a meeting room computer with a consumer Skype account. We will inevitably one day get a proper room system, but in the meantime we already have what we need equipment wise... just not software-wise.

    It would be useful if you could setup a desktop installation of MS Teams as a meeting room so that staff do not need to login with their accounts (which they would then forget to log out of), or have dedicated meeting room users.

    Maybe this is already possible and I've…

    when someone writes to me on my desktop, the Teams tab in the taskbar starts blinking. I always miss this blinking and therefore miss the message. Can there be a pop-up notification?

  20. Make it stable and give a much smaller screen space option. Aka tiny.

    We started with communicator which was nice and small. The Skype added pictures to the most. Now teams is huge and maintains awareness is nearly impossible.
