How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Improve the Mac App

- Can't find it in Mac App Store
- Weird first run experience (very un-Maclike)
- Didn't know which monitor it was on (had windows on both)
- Ignored system level text replacements when trying to log in (I have a shortcut for my fairly long email address)
- Non-standard UI, and not in a good "I hope this takes off" way
- Non-standard emojis automatically used when you type keyboard ones (e.g. ;) is turned into a horrible animated winking face that looks like it is leering at me... but it also lets you insert system native ones alongside them for added confusion)
- A garish notification from "T-bot" popped up on my other monitor approximately where Mac notifications appear... but it wasn't actually a Mac notification so I can't control it through Notification Centre (three issues for the price of one)
- No "Preferences" to configure the app (I wanted to turn off the horrible notifications)

    specific UI request: If the Teams.app main window is closed, there is no way to re-open it. Please add either a "Teams" item in "Window" menu that re-opens the window with command+0 like messages.app, mail.app, etc or "New Windows" in File Menu like Visual Studio Code.app (less Mac-like)

    Copy/Paste is also intermittently deciding it doesn't want to paste from PowerPoint/text editors etc.
