  1. Compact mode

    I really like Teams. I do. But the current chat layout is not suited for professional chats. It's way to space consuming. It looks like something imported from MSN with smiley's that take half of the screen. I would say that Slack have nailed it because they focused on the ability keeping a tight window with lots of chat text visible. In Teams the window is full and starts scrolling after like 10 sentences.

    • Multi-window for chats and more

      I want to have separate top-level windows for each person I'm chatting with, rather than tabs.

      • Make "Teams" and "Chat" the same Tab

        There is no reason that Teams and Chat should be different top level categories in the left navigation. They are the same thing, perform exactly the same function, and making two different items simply confuses the navigation and makes badge notifications and discoverability much more difficult to use.

        Please combine Chats into the Teams tab so that you can browse all conversations in one place rather than needing to navigate to different tabs to see different conversations.

        Chats and channels perform essentially the same function, which is talk to some people and collaborate. Forcing the user to check two different…

        • Use same date and time format as in my computer's settings

          Many people like to use English as their display language, but get confused with the US date format: 11/06 is October 6 in the US, but June 11 in many other countries. Why not display the date according to the setting in Windows?

          Same goes for time, of course, where many use 24 hour format instead of am and pm.

            • User customizable left navigation

              The far left navigation panel seems to have a whole lot of blank space just calling out to be filled with things, and there is plenty of functionality within Teams that could be put there so users could reach it faster. That big gap between Files and Feedback is wasted space!

              You should let individual users decide what goes in this space by giving them the ability to pin additional things they want there. I use the 'Saved' functionality a lot for example. It would be nice to have it out there only one click away. Perhaps I think a…

                  Hi everyone — we have implemented this on the web version.

                  We will not be implementing it in the desktop app or mobile app due to other high priority engineering items.

                  Let me know if you have any questions!

                • Allow rearranging contacts and groups

                  The new contact list is now live but it's missing the ability to rearrange contacts and groups by drag and drop like you can now do with teams and recent conversations.

                  I have quite a few contacts and large groups so sorting them would be very useful.

                        This is currently in Preview – planned to release very soon.

                        In the following weeks, Teams will be rolling out support on Safari 11+ on macOS. While in preview, there are known issues with Safari’s ITP mode and it is advised that users disable Safari’s Intelligent Tracking Prevention.

                            Dear Admins, please get on the same page as your design teams and support staff, they’re giving users contradicting information.

                            I just had a conversation with Microsoft Support about the ability for a Skype user to talk to a Teams user…basically at this time there is no such thing as interoperability despite their documentation regarding coexistence modes.

                            The very minute a user even tries Teams just once…they break the ability to use Skype to talk to you if you’re using Teams. Apparently it’s been in this broken state for months and is “by design.”

                            Here’s the quote from the rep,…

                              The new contact list is now live and it has the option to expand and collapse contact groups. However when I restart teams the are all expanded again.

                              It would be better if Teams remembered when I collapse a group. then I can for example hide groups of contacts I don't use as often.

                                Use 100% of resizable width

                                Ability to resize the pane where search and favorites are show

                                • Ability to specify different colors for different teams

                                  During testing of Teams app we found that users are quite often confused in regards to which team they are posting (specifically when they post to 'general' channel) - I think ability to assign different colors for different teams (by the owners/admins) would be helpful and could help to reduce amount of mistakes.

                                    Unfortunately it was declined to decline this feature request.

                                    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.

                                    Don't restrict the width of the screen space for channel conversations, if my monitor is wide enough, adjust the display to fill up all the available space.

                                        • Customize Applications within Sidebar (Drag-and-Drop)

                                          I'd like the ability to have full control over how the sidebar is organized. Currently, you have to click the 3 ellipses to view any connected apps as well as access them. Maybe have the list scrollable or drag-and-drop the applications into any order and snap into place. Maybe integrate the ability to unlock and lock the sidebar view so you don't accidentally reorganize the app list unintentionally.
