How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

External Keyboard Support on iOS

Better app logic when Bluetooth/External keyboard is connected.

1. Better use of screen real estate.
2. Logical keyboard shortcuts (chat apps typically use "Enter" to send messages, not "Shift+Cmd+D", even though that is what the Apple Mail App uses, it is not consistent with Messages, Slack, etc.
3. Support for formatting (italics, bold, underline, etc.)

    Please align the external keyboard shortcut keys between apps. In Microsoft Teams if you want Italics you highlight that text and click Control+I on the iPad physical keyboard. But, on in the Outlook app Italics is Command+I. Control+I in the Outlook app is indent and will erase all of your text, move your cursor to the indented position, and disable the undo button.

    If I try to insert a new line (Shift+Enter) in between paragraphs, hitting ‘Shift-Enter’ inserts the new line, but brings the cursur to the end of the text box.

    This is another one of those “seems like it’s so basic a requirement it should be here” things. Given the heavy push we are making for Teams adoption, it’s the little things that can ultimately sway a user or company to ultimately adopt something like Teams.
