  1. Disable Like feature in Conversations

    Need to have an option to disable/enable the 'like' feature. We have found staff at times abusing the setting by continuously clicking the like button and bombarding the other user with notifications.

  2. Start new chat in MS Teams is not intuitive and hard to find as it's on it's own and not in a logical spot - did you do any user testing on

    Start new chat in MS Teams desktop is not intuitive and hard to find as it's on it's own (top left) with no association to chat and not in a logical spot - did you do any user testing on this...I'm not a power user and always frustrates me to find it.

    It should be located as an option on chat menu item on left; and or top right where you can add people to a chat..

    This is UX 101 stuff, come on MS

  3. CACHE APPS / USAGE

    I really like the integration efforts to move all of MS Office 365 Services into a single app... but it becomes extremely frustrating when you switch from one app to another.

    For example, I've added a 'Planner' tab and a 'Notebook' tab to one of my channels... when I switch between the two, Teams re-loads the entire Plan/Notebook, and I don't resume where I left off.

    So much wasted time in page loads / finding where I was to move forward.

  4. Go To New

    The Command/Ctrl + E feature is great, but I think it could be improved. I'd expect it to work more similarly to the Command + K feature in Slack.

    First, as soon as I press the shortcut, the first available options should be a list of the latest notifications, with the most recent notification already selected, so I can easily jump to it by pressing Enter.

    Once I start typing, instead of the selection defaulting to search, it should default to the top result, so I can easily jump to that selection using Enter.

  5. open weblinks in the app is app is open

    When some one shares a web link for teams and the teams app is open, open the link in teams app rather than a browser.

  6. Linked Documents to tasks

    I've noticed whenever I link a document to a task, clicking on the link only allows you to open the document on Word online. For documents that have images or text boxes, word online distorts these images unlike in the desktop app.

    There should be an option, like in the files tab in teams, to open the document in the desktop app or on the online platform.

  7. Uploading file with the same name with the same name

    If I upload a file from my hard drive with a name that matches another name, it does not prompt to create a new version. This should be the default behavior or at least a prompt.

  8. Mobile notifications

    We recently moved from hipchat to teams. Seems everyone who has the app gets duplicate notifications on mobile and desktop. The setting send notifications when I’m not active on desktop doesn’t work. Through out the day despite being logged in and available I get notifications on my app. Even as I type this I got a notification in my phone and desktop simultaneously.

  9. Log in constantly refreshing

    It's annoying and makes it nearly impossible to log in, hence my 15 minute fight with my phone app just to make the "please sign in to keep updated" warning go away.

  10. Document view settings for page width or zoom

    View settings for a document do not come up until after CTRL+ has been pressed.
    This means view controls for "page width" or "100%" or zoom are NOT available until after the UI has been zoomed.

    Adobe and Chrome have a pop-up UI for these controls when hovering near the bottom center of a document... that would be helpful.

    Also CTRL+{mouse scroll wheel} does not work.

  11. In Teams carousel, lable archived Teams

    Archived teams are presented in the Teams carousel, which is nice because it provides access to archived information. But I would like if the carousel labeled the team as archived -- joining a team expecting to participate in an active discussion but finding that the team is archived wastes time.

  12. banner and notification isn't showing when windows close

    When the Team Windows in Microsoft 10 is closed. One don't get the banner update for a new acitivity and no activity symbol for new activities on the task bar if team symbol is fixed to the task bar (see attachment).
    It would be nice if there would a notification symbol when Teams is running in the background and the windows is closed even.

  15. Manage permissions per tabs

    Is it possible to have a permissions management on tabs within a Team ? For example, all members can see the General tab, but access other tabs are restricted. An owner could decide which member of the Team can see particular tab, etc.
    Thanks

  18. Make E-mail notification of Microsoft Teams be sent to users who have never signed in to Microsoft Teams

    Users who have not signed in to Microsoft Teams don’t receive a notification for @mentions. It would be a burden for us to inform users to sign in to Microsoft Teams in advance.
    I would request you to make the notification for @mention to be sent to users who haven’t signed into Microsoft Teams.

  19. Add instructions for international calls

    I tried to call a phone # in Spain but Teams just said "calling..." forever but the call didn't go through. Would be nice if there's a help page on international calls. Couldn't find any info.

  20. Include a following option in each conversation

    If such an option is present, user can get notified about updates specifically about the conversation that she/he is interested to know about, even if these conversations are not tagged with their names.
