  2. User Interface

    it would be nice if there were a way to customize the navigation bar on the left - to maybe have shortcuts to other apps such as personal outlook to see personal tasks etc. and then something to get into other commonly used

  6. Youtube Links

    We need Tab / Channel / Web link place where we can paste our web links for our students to go and view it. Sometimes there is over 20 links per subject. We can go into One Note but it's an extra step.

  10. Add search to Trello boards tab

    Currently, when you add a Trello board as a tab, it does not include the search field at the top of the board that you see when accessing Trello on the web. I want to be able to search the Trello board from within the MS Teams tab.

  11. Please allow ZOOM when viewing Excel Spreadsheets in Teams

    Spreadsheets are automatically zoomed in to only display a couple of lines/columns when opening them within Teams. I would love to zoom in/out and be able to see more on my screen within Teams instead of having to open it in a browser.

    When I Right click, go to View, or use CTRL ALT - , there is still no zoom function. Please add a Zoom functionality in at least one of these methods. It wastes time to have to open the file in a browser just to be able to see an adequate portion of the spreadsheet.

  13. display profile image

    If you have a number of contacts that you engage with during the day, it would be helpful to have a setting where the profile image does not display next to the name. This saves the need to scroll quite as much. I know you can search for the too but..

  15. Notifications

    It would be nice if when a notification came up, it only showed the persons name, but not the message. Then if you are projecting or have someone sitting with you, the audience can not see the message.

  17. Microsoft Teams download banner / popup needs to be removed

    When a user in the Office 365 environment wants to use the web version http://teams.microsoft.com, a popup message is visible at the upper area with a prompt to install the client version:
    “Want an even faster, more collaborative experience? Download the desktop app.” By several given security compliance requirements in big IT environments, the users shouldn’t be able to install any additional software at their PCs. This popup is confusing the web-only Teams user and also it makes the software deployment team nervous.

  18. Audio Feedback Loops

    We need a feature (similar to Skype for Business) to control how a user joins the audio portion of the meeting. The product works perfectly right now if everyone uses telephony headsets, but get 4 Surface Pros in a room, have everyone click the "Join" button and then wait for your ears to bleed as the audio all feeds back.

    Even having 3 out of 4 users click the mute button doesn't solve the problem because the meeting audio is still coming out of their speakers and feeding back into the one user who is using their mic to run…

  19. Only admin should be creating teams

    Give businesses option to only have Office 365 admin to create Teams. Currently any user can create a team any way they want and my employers want only admin to create teams so that there is a consistent naming structure to team names. Also they don't want users creating teams with private chatting to external users that no one knows about using resources that the company has paid for.

  20. Your embedded code text is too big and scrollbars are ridiculous. Allow to choose word wrap and/or change the font size of the code.

    The text for embedded code works great except that it's ridiculously big (bigger than regular chat) and a scrollbar takes up a ton of space. This needs to be much tinier with smaller borders and have the ability to change the font size.
