Change keyboard shortcut
We need functionality to customize keyboard shortcuts to resolve following problem.
Many of keyboard shortcuts are not giving same user experience like other MS apps, and we would like to customize them.
For example, our developer heavily use VSCode, and we are expecting Command + P will open search, and Command + Shift + } will switch to next channel.
Please Microsoft, why not just use system level keyboard customisation on all apps, like a mac. What increases the rub, is that you don't even leverage this mac feature on the mac. But at least everyone suffers no matter the OS, so I guess thats fair.
Not too sure if anyone has found to make their own shortcuts. I have an issue using Teams and presenting any document or webpage. When i use CTRL+Shift+M to mute or unmute, it initiates different processes on the document or webpage because the shortcut behaves as a shortcut for that particular content and not for Teams. Very frustrated with this !!!!
Any solutions would be very helpful
Please disable ctrl+shift+c for calls! I just made several calls in chats with over 20 people!

i start calls by mistake when i want to copy text but i press ctrl+shift+c by mistake
I really hate ctrl+shift+c to start phone call, I do a lot front end work, the same shortcut on browser inspects the webpage elements, I've accidentally started phone calls when I thought I had focus in browser!!!
Slack and VS Code got it right (because they are built on Electron). Use the same key shortcuts as in the browser so we have one set of keyboard shortcuts for all programs. Done deal.
So being able to change the shortcuts is necessary!
I 100% need this! The pre-configured mappings do not work well with me.
Can't agree more. In most apps I use these days, keyboard shortcut mappings are entirely customisable. This is a huge gap in the Teams product. I see multiple complaints about specific mappings being incorrect for specific reasons. But really, it should be up to users to decide based on their own environment. There'll be no one mapping fits all solution. That said, who decided ctrl+E (cmd+E on mac), should be find / search? What happened to 'F' for find, just like it is in nearly every other application I've ever used? Especially when ctrl+F doesn't map to anything else already.

I would also love to see this. I often paste things without formatting (Ctrl + Shift + V) and sometimes I accidentally hit C instead, which starts a call. I was hoping to be able to change or remove these shortcuts.
This is an urgently needed feature for both MS-Teams but also all other MS Office applications! MS do it! ;-)

It is a big problem on Polish Programmer's keyboard layout, when Teams APP register iteslf in the whole system to major keyboard shortcuts.
Alt+S should act like Ś
Alt+A - Ą
Because of that Teams app is not usable at all in Poland!!!!

Yet another example where advanced user settings are virtually essential.
