  1. Notifications is really inefficient

    Why are we flipping between group teams vs. individual chats

  4. I am an very experienced computer user and can always figure out new things really quickly, but Teams is almost impossible to use

    The user experience is very very confusing. This is one of the most difficult programs I have ever had to become familiar with.

    It's hard to make a specific suggestion, but every single person in my organization is struggling with Teams even though everyone is an expert user.

  5. Audit more user actions

    We need to have audit logging of at least

  6. Please allow for IRC-style chat rooms

    Since the "Hide the reply button" request was closed(https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16925779-hide-the-reply-button-under-every-message), I'm opening this request.

    Obviously some people want actual chatrooms, not a window of various threaded conversations you have to scroll back and forth through.

    Please consider adding actual chat rooms like you'd find with IRC, or even Discord. Compact, chronological ordered messages, easily copy/paste-able, easily searchable.

  7. - Stop auto-adding every channel I visit to my favorites - Get rid of the giant clip art at the top of every, single, channel - Stop telling


    • Stop auto-adding every channel I visit to my favorites

    • Get rid of the giant clip art at the top of every, single, channel

    • Stop telling me to download the app

    • Put a count of unread messages on each team (instead of just making it bold)

  8. Consolidate Teams, VSTS, and SharePoint Wikis into one shared product/experience

    The three products are similar but incompatible at the moment, minimizing the value of all three. If they were consolidated in a way that allowed source control in VSTS, editing and publishing from SharePoint and Teams it would be a much more compelling story all around.

  9. PERT/CPM View

    While Teams gives a good organizational view of a project, it doesn't provide a good view for scheduling. Being able to plan both the individual needs of a project and the critical path/timeline for a project are essential for good project management. While I think it would be difficult to use an interface like Teams to depict project schedules in a Gantt chart, I think it would be interesting if the planner could assign expected due date estimates/time estimates and change the view in Planner to a PERT diagram in order to view total project times.

  10. window size unwanted expansion

    When I minimize Teams from a non-maximized state, and then restore it again, the bottom and right edges expand slightly.

    The result of this is that over the course of the day switching to/from Teams, the window ends up growing significantly.

  11. Show previews of videos in Microsoft Stream like you do for YouTube & Vimeo

    I love the automatic preview I get when I paste a hyperlink to a YouTube or Vimeo video in a conversation tab message. I want the same thing for videos I post to my company's Microsoft Stream.

  13. The contacts pane does not show up automatically to be able to Admit external contacts or dial in

    Guys, If I don't make sure to click on the contacts pane before people start to join the Meeting I have no notification whatsoever to tell me hey there's people waiting in the lobby waiting to be admitted in fact is there a lobby? Please either pin the contacts list automatically on the Conference calls or just create a simple notification whenever a new person needs to be admitted so far there is not such a thing on my Desktop version: 1.100.5963 (64Bits)

  14. MS Bookings App for Teams (Channel)

    MS Bookings seems like a fantastic tool for Internal Enterprises.

    Some Cases:
    1) Book a Carwash
    We have an internal cash wash facility that is really great but it's not well used in general but then the poor gentlemen get overloaded with cars as the communication goes out. Internal bookings would work well to manage the time slots and booking.

    2) Book Onsite Nurse: As above

    3) Book Time with an internal Mentor

    4) Book Time with the CEO / CFO / CMO / CDO / CXO

    I can think of more. I think you'll think of even better use…

  16. The whole UX needs to be re-thinked. Is so hard to interact with multiple teams.

    I'd love to have a solution, but I don't. All I'm saying is that the whole approach to the product makes it so hard to use. I like Skype much better. Even Slack, that I never liked, seems more intuitive and easy to use than this. I have been using teams for a couple of months already so I don't think it's a matter of getting used to it at this point.

  18. Add ability to create/modify teams with PowerShell for every type of team

    You already marked the uservoice https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/19584886-add-ability-to-create-modify-teams-with-powershell as completed.

    But it isn't realy completed. Because you can only create "normal" teams. Please add the ability to create teams for the following types (as like if you do it manually "Choose a team for...):

    Classes, PLCs, Staff Members, Anyone

    We would like to automate the team creation for hundreds of classes with that specific type.

  19. can't upload JPEGS on the teams app.

    I need to go to web version to do that. So to share artwork with my team on a running project I have to leave the app and login online to upload. I kinda makes the app a second class tool to the web version and a tad redundant.
