How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Please stop request to "Add Helper" Popups on the Mac.

There is no indication on what the Helper does or what why I need to add the Helper. For all I know, I can be installing a virus.

    This is still happening for many of us on Macs at my company. Very annoying.

    At the very least, just say what the Helper is actually trying to do, in plain language. Honestly, an incredible innovation in technology would be error messages, push notices, etc indicating what the actual error is or communicating what is being pushed in plain language.

    It's been at least a year for me and it still doing that. Just Fix it! I would gladly remove TEAM from my Mac but I need it because the company I work for run on that. Seriously I would rather use Slack!

    I am accosted multiple times a day being interrupted with the MS Teams dialogue demanding I approve what seems to be an avalanche of 'new helper tools'. I am a believer of push notifications (a) and code updates (b). However, none of these should be allowed to interrupt my business use of my computer. Especially for macOS, I beg MSFT to please integrate MS Teams into KeyChain so that my OS can satisfy any such request for my credentials. Please. There is not a day when I don't have to pull myself back from deleting MS Teams from my laptop.
