  1. Copy & Paste is tempermental

    Users reporting multiple copy/paste issues for text:


    1. Can't paste multi-messages. Often, only the first line pastes, the rest disappear. As one user puts it: "On the Windows 10 desktop client it is nearly impossible to copy multiple messages from the chat history. A fraction of a second after letting go of the mouse, the highlight collapses down to a single message."


    2. Can't paste in general: "Copy & Paste is tempermental, when i try to paste text in from other sources it simply doesn't paste, but then if I only copy a few (3-6) words then it does. It means I…

  2. Video feeds from meeting participants should be at the top of the screen -- not the bottom

    To create the feeling of "eye contact" it is ideal if all meeting participants are looking more or less in the direction of their camera while conversing with each other. Ideally, when a user is looking at their fellow meeting participant's video feed, it should appear as if the user is looking directly into the camera.

    However, because the video feeds are at the bottom of the screen in Teams, everyone in the meeting usually appears as if they are looking down, instead of at the camera.

    Therefore, the video feeds should appear at the top of each user's screen,…

  5. Reliability issues: crashing, hanging, freezing

    Literally Teams will crash 5 or 6 times a day. Hugely annoying and unproductive.

  6. Expand emojis to reflect the diversity of ethnicity, gender, sexuality and disability of your user base

    Emoji set is limited and almost exclusively white and male. This doesn't reflect the make up of most modern workplaces and certainly doesn't reflect the make up of your global user base.

  7. PSTN Reverse Number Lookup (show username from Address book not PSTN number) in Teams Toast and Call History

    When a PSTN user calls you on Microsoft Teams, if the number is in the address book I would like to be presented with the users name on the toast, not just the PSTN number. The same for call history or anywhere else a PSTN number appears in the client

  8. Teams meeting lobby - allow "selected people" to bypass lobby

    With the new "Only me" option for bypassing the lobby, this puts huge onus on organisers who might not normally expect to attend a meeting but where the meeting has a requirement to hold particpants int eh lobby.

    For example ...

    Person A sets up a MS Teams meeting that we will use to teach a random group of students about a topic. Person A sets the lobby to "only me" and invites person B as a "presenter". They also invite 100 random students.

    On the delivery day Person A arrives and admits person B from the lobby shortly before…

  9. Search Public and Private Teams

    Users report its very difficult for their peers to find a team that they have created. This hinders their ability to increase team membership.


    Other users report its frustrating that they can't just search ALL the teams at their organization -- that only a small fraction are surfaced to them in their "Suggested" view.


    The capability to view Public Teams when you click on "Create Team" is great.

    HOWEVER... it would be a better user experience if there was a prominent button or link called "Search for Teams".

    Teams needs this discovery capability to avoid the duplication of Team areas…

    Unfortunately we hit some snags and this has moved back to “working on it”. The team is working to make some corrections and I hope to have a release date in the near future. I’ll keep you posted with what I hear.

    Great news! We just started working on this for the AUDIO portion. We are still trying to determine feasibility for the video portion of your request.

  11. Search results should show the full thread

    Searching for something works (mostly), however if the thing you're search for is sufficiently far back in time, then it's nigh impossible to actually get results back. Clicking the message says "go to chat to see the rest", but clicking on that does nothing but take you back to the chat at the current time, rather than the target message. If you bookmark the message and try to get at the location in chat via that, then the client just lags and eventually crashes. (while chewing up 100% CPU) Tried the desktop client (developer preview), web client Chrome, web client…

  13. @Tag without selection

    Current when @Tagging someone you have to type @PartOfTheirName then wait for the dialog to pop up, then hit tab or enter click the desired name (Person, Channel, Team). If you fail to use the dialog the @Tag fails to work even if you match the name perfectly.

    What we'd like to see is typing @Name or @ChannelName or @TeamName just works even without using the dialog.

    I’m excited to share that I got to use this in our experimental settings the other day. We’ve built it and are testing it internally. I’ll let you know once it moves up in the validation rings!

  14. Links/attachments in chat

    If you attach an item to a chat it will be saved in the files section of the channel. But if you are chatting about a document and you want to reference it you do not want to save it to the channel as it is already in another folder of the SP Site. To create a copy in the channel does not make sense as you are creating duplicates. a link would be the solution.

  17. live transcript

    Today I ran a meeting that included a colleague who it 85% deaf. When we have in-person meetings he can lip-read but this is too difficult on screen.

    It would be fantastic if live speech captions were available and they'd make a huge difference to their working life and others with similar requirements.

  18. Browser/OS independent desktop notifications using HTML5

    Not sure about the desktop clients because there isn't one available for my operating system. However, the web app is essentially unfit for purpose because I can't tell when anyone is trying to contact me unless I sit there, constantly staring at the app.

  19. Add Cortana

    Imagine this chat conversation between two users:

    Patrick : Sales is doing great now...
    James : Yes but I wonder where we are growing?
    Patrick: @Cortana Show me revenue by country in October 2016
    Cortana: [Shows a graph with top selling countries with a link to the Power BI report]
    James: @Cortana What product sells best in Sweden?
    Cortana: [Answers with text] "Superduper Sport Shoe" has most revenue in Sweden for October 2016.

    Now imagine adding in a bot that can answer questions about inventory or even a procurement bot...
