  1. Open links to teams in Desktop App

    SITUATION: When you receive a link to a Teams file or folder, or really anything in Teams, like a Planner task - it sends you to the sharepoint site, regardless of whether you have the Desktop App installed and even if it is open.

    RESOLUTION: Make links to any Teams elements open directly in the Teams Desktop App

    This will save so much time and frustration from people, and also make Teams seem like a more integrated solution for everyone.

  2. Proofing tools (spell check, theasaurus, autocorrect)

    One of the defining features of office down the years has been the proofing tools (i.e. Spell checker, theasaurus, autocorrect, grammar checker). I would love to see these come to Teams.

    The way I envisage this working is as I'm typing a message the famous red/blue/green squigglies that we've all become familiar with should show up.

    Most of all I'd like autocorrect (i.e. a spelling correction that I've used previously automatically gets applied as I type). Stretch goal for this, have a single set of autocorrects that work across all of Office 365, including the client apps.

    Some people might…

  3. Spell check in multiple languages

    It would be nice if it was possible to have the Teams desktop app in one languge and spell checking in multiple languge and at the same time customize date and time format.

    E.g. I would like to have Teams in English, have spell checking in English and Danish, and have date and time format in "Danish".

  4. Clear local cache button

    Teams has a bunch of difference local caches and temp files that just continually grow forever in %appdata%\Microsoft\teams. It would be great to have a button that would wipe out all the local cache and temp files in this folder. Doing it manually has a very noticeable performance gain throughout teams.

    As it stands, I'm going to write a powershell script to run on all the workstations I manage periodically to close teams and clean this up as a refresh of teams.

  5. Improve Install options - Install for all users and install location

    Raising this again as Microsoft closed the previous request, saying it was complete even though it was not. (link below)

    Teams should install to the program files directory, not the users AppData.

    And NO, the answer is not to put a copy of the MSI in Pogram Files and deploy to the users AppData when they login.

  8. Teams Windows client greatly increases roaming profile size (Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams)

    On Windows, Teams is available as an end user self-install app. The app installs to AppData\Local, so not part of the roaming profile. However, it stores LOTS of content in AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams.

    Our organisation uses roaming profiles and profile size policy; users are beginning to exceed a [very generous!] limit, and Teams is a big cause of this.

    Please fix!

  10. Ability to prevent auto-start persistantly and programmatically using TAC/Group Policy

    See MSTCommunity request here -

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/How-to-Prevent-Teams-from-Auto-Launch/m-p/730658#M34150

    Even though autostart can be prevented upon installation a single time (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/teams-install) and then turned off manually within the desktop client, there is a need by some businesses to ensure that the Desktop client does not auto-start at any time and yet be able to enable this programmatically via TAC/Group Policy without having to jump in users desktop client to turn it off.

  11. Go native for Desktop

    Please, for the love of sweet candy, go native on Desktop platforms.

    I'm looking for an alternative for Slack as it uses electron which sucks every last bit of RAM it possibly can before destroying your computer in a sweet sweet fire. After seeing the wonderful performance of Office I was really hoping this would be native!

    Please, someone with the development experience and financial backing of Microsoft must be able to accomplish this in your sleep. Surely?

  13. Secondary (Multiple) accounts support

    I work for 3 companies as a consultant and each have their own teams account. I have no way to interact with all 3 at the same time on desktop. On android mobile I can but switching between accounts is stupid and tedious. Multiple account should just show merged content from multiple accounts with a visual direrantiatior between accounts on messages itself. Similar how Outlook handles multiple accounts via All mail folder.

  14. Teams freezes if "Logitech Group" USB Conference Webcam is attached

    Whenever I plug in the "Logitech Group" conference system (webcam/microphone, https://www.logitech.com/de-de/product/conferencecam-group) into my Macbook Pro (Catalina 10.15.3) via USB, MS teams freezes and I cannot start any call. Only unplugging fixes the freeze.

    Basically I cannot use our video conferencing system with Teams, despite it being advertised as being compatible. Using other Apps on my Macbook to record videos works fine, so definitely a Teams problem.

    Also discussed here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams/usb-plug-of-the-quot-logitech-group-quot-will-cause-teams-to/m-p/1120205

  15. Integrate with MS PowerToys FancyZones to share a zone instead of the whole screen

    Screen sharing doesn't work well when the user who is sharing has a super ultra wide monitor (49") and the others have ordinary monitors. This forces the user to share applications instead of the screen and the user needs to stop and start sharing for each application switch. It would be great if the user could share a PowerToy FancyZone. Then the user could have a normal sized FancyZone and share it.

  17. Integrate Outlook Categories

    I would love the ability to use categories I've created in Outlook for files and meetings in Teams, and have those categories carry from one app to the other, no matter which app the category was originally assigned in.

  20. Multiple applications sharing

    Please let us share multiple applications from MS Teams rather than sharing only one application or only the entire desktop.

    Also, give functionality to switch to another application while you are sharing without stoping screen share and resharing another application
