  2. Incorrect Time zone for Daylight Saving Time change

    MS Teams should pull the user time zone directly from the System or from Outlook, or there should be an option to configure the time zone within MS Teams. I'm located in Phoenix - which does not observe Daylight Saving Time. A meeting created in MS Teams by my Lead for 900am CDT shows up at 700am MST on my Outlook calendar (which is correct), but shows up for 800am MDT (which it assumes I'm on and is wrong) in MS Teams on the channel post. MS Teams meetings created in outlook are correct - meetings created from MS Teams…

  3. Persistence and Notifications trouble on iOS/macOs

    For iOS/macOS desktop - data doesn’t persist for all messages. While in a menu i see too old messages, and after I enter a conversation - another pack of newer messages are loaded on fly so I need to scroll down to look at newest ones . Also there’s troubles with notifications many of which don’t appear at all

  4. Allow for content (file) sharing while in Teams Meetings

    Allow for Teams Meetings to include content sharing (like in Skype for Business), with co-authoring and syncing with OneNote notebooks, allowing teams to work while in a video meeting.

  5. Status

    It is really frustrating that my online status is constantly changing or not changing. It won't change when I click on it, then it will change in the background when I am working on different things. It's just all over the place.

  6. Allow me to edit the source directory for the "Files" tab, or remove it altogether

    The files tab on my teams site is displaying the private documents directory from my sharepoint site, and I can't change it, or remove it. This basically makes Teams useless for me.

  8. Message Card Action OpenUri crashes when url includes star

    If the url set in a webhook connector for an action includes a star character, then the link does not work (see below for example webhook json (the potential action part)

    {

    "@type": "OpenUri",
    
    "name": "View Search Results",
    "targets": [
    { &quot;os&quot;: &quot;default&quot;, &quot;uri&quot;: &quot;<a rel="nofollow noreferrer" href="https://url.com?query=bla*&quot">https://url.com?query=bla*&quot</a>; }
    ]

    }

  9. Stop emoji animation after one cycle

    Provide an option to stop emojis from continually animating once the first 'cycle' has completed. They are childish and distracting.

  11. Any link pasted into a conversation should be clickable

    Every URL pasted into a conversation should be a clickable link. Some URLs are not clickable.

  14. Add Members from Address Book

    There is a similar feature in Yammer, where I can add members from an existing Address Book in a CVS format. Let us do that in Teams too!

  16. video setup

    You cannot setup audio and video settings in Teams unless you setup a call. Is that not weird?

  17. Only the owner should be able to mark a task complete or delete it.

    At the moment anybody can mark a task complete. I would prefer that only a owner should be able to mark a task complete. Also give a possibility to archive completed tasks and deleted tasks with a search facility. Nobody other than owner should be able to delete it from there. This is important for historical record keeping and tracing. This is urgent please.

  18. CMD+Tab on macOS does not bring main window up

    When switching between programs on the Mac the CMD+Tab keys will switch to the Teams Program - but the main window is often minimized. I either have to click the program on the Launcher or go via the Window menu.

  19. Activity view is not engaging

    Since moving to Teams from Skype, collaboration and sharing of our 170 people has decreased. People are no engaged in chats and miss what is happening. Main feedback is around the activity view not allowing you to quickly review what is happening. Sadly we are looking to move back to Skype.

  20. Channel UI is giant

    I'm using a fullHD 27" screen and I can only display like 4-5 msgs. That's unacceptable.

    Messages are shown with an avatar + stroked box + "Reply row" + tools + etc

    This UI should be configurable to get the most out of the screen and user needs/preferences.

    Please, add some kind of configurable UI for the channel.

    Thanks
