  2. Favorite teams

    When I change favorite teams (Unfavorite a team) it still opens on that channel when I start Teams in the browser.
    I prefer it start with the conversation in a favorite team, please.

  3. Delete messages and change layout

    I would like if were possible to delete all messages sent (to me and the recipient) or received (for me) in an easier way. In addition, it would be interesting to give more options for editing the layout, such as wallpaper and color/font adjustments. Thanks.

  4. In need of a serious UI rewrite

    This needs a rewrite. There are only litterly three setting I can change which really do not amount to much.

    I cannot move the columns to make them bigger or smaller.
    The right column can't be moved to the top.
    Cannot hide the user icons and they are round
    Each chat entry is in its own little bubble akin to a cellphone with no option to change.
    There is too much space between the bubbles.
    Cannot stop the emojis and gifs from showing and cannot remove the options from the compose box.

    Just feels really amateur-ish. I except this kind…

  5. Notification overload - too many

    In the last couple of weeks I have received notifications for almost - but no all - messages regardless of whether I have viewed them or not. Cutting back on these would be a good thing since all I seem to be able to do is stop them altogether.

  6. Provide ability to minimize a conversation into only its title

    Please provide an ability to minimize the conversations that happened in a channel into only their title i.e. that are a single, thin line that can be expanded easily if needed.
    There are many channels in my teams where we have multiple active posts at the same time, and even though i dont need to reply to them, i still want to be able to see a bunch of them at the same time.
    An alternative solution would be providing an ability to pin specific conversations an make them stick on the screen, even if you scroll.

  7. Don't delete a message from the send box until it successfully sends

    I was attempting to send a message when an error occurred. The message was not sent and the content disappeared from the box. I don't think this should happen.

  8. Copy Task stops working

    This just started within the past week or so because I created a template to copy all new task projects from. When clicking the 3 dots (more options) to open the submenu so I can "copy task" - the copy task dialogue box pops open, I paste in the new task name, click copy and nothing happens. I have to shutdown Teams, restart, and it works fine for another day. This is seemingly happening every day that I don't reboot/restart the given system I'm logged into.

  10. Simultaneous Notifications despite settings

    Even though I have my Android settings on "only notify when inactive on desktop," for the past few days my phone buzzes when I get a Teams notification regardless of if I am using the desktop version or not. This is not supposed to happen unless you're inactive for 3 minutes or more on your desktop, but it's literally every time I get a chat right now, which is driving me crazy. Please fix this bug!

  11. Independent Tenant-Wide External Sharing settings

    In https://[COMPANYNAME]-admin.sharepoint.com/_layouts/15/online/AdminHome.aspx#/sharing, there are separate slider for OneDrive and SharePoint Online, so that they may have different external sharing settings.

    Since we cannot administer Teams the same way we do SharePoint Online sites, it doesn't make sense to tie Teams global sharing settings to SharePoint Online's global sharing settings.

    This would also allow us opportunities to test Teams without impacting our SharePoint Online environment.

  12. Fix the :

    I think the auto emojis are a bad idea. If I type :) it auto creates a smile emoji, if I type :s It makes an emoji automatically, but if I want to type :smile: the :s is changed automatically so I can't search for emojis..

  16. Integrate with macOS KeyChain

    Please P-L-E-A-S-E integrate macOS keychain into Teams. The frequent updates are both a blessing and curse. It takes me away from my work and well as shuts Teams down. Please integrate into keychain so you can update without my intervention. thnx

  17. Local version for the To-Do application.

    Although To-do is integrated with Outlook, it would be simpler to use the tool if a local version, such as the Teams and Onenote applications, was installed in the machine.

  18. channel switch

    When switching between channels, make the user feel like his action has been instantly taken into account instead of waiting 500ms to 1s.


    1. Go on one channel

    2. Hover an other channel : your current channel is in a lighter color and the hover channel is in the main color

    3. Click to go on the new channel : the previous channel is still in a lighter color, untill the new channel is loaded. Makes the user feel like there was a freeze.

    Wouldn't it be better if the previous one was instantly uncolored, and the whole UI makes the user feel…

  19. Increase the visual distinction between the persistent chat messages/threads in 'Chat' vs 'Teams'

    Today these are distinguished only by moving focus outside the thread frame of view (either left or up) to find out where we are.
    When a topic is discussed in both places people frequently make mistakes and post in the wrong thread.
    It would be nice to have a visual distinction like rounded corners on chat bubbles or coloring, both optional and configurable.
