Customize keyboard shortcuts
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.
Thank you for your feedback. The team has this request under review. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
still waiting for this to fixed i need my shortcuts back to be able to use teams in teaching......... Tumbleweed......... Hellooooooo Microsoft! does anyone care about their customers?

Honestly, the default shortcuts for calling (CTRL+SHIFT+C) and video chatting (CTRL+SHIFT+V) could not be stupider. These are commonly used for copying and pasting from the terminal. I have lost track of the number of times I've accidentally called someone. I hate it. I hate it. I HATE it.

Kinda getting tired of accidentaly calling someone (CTRL+SHIFT+C) when trying to paste without format (CTRL+SHIFT+V) but accidentaly touching C instead of V ...

This would be a passable workaround for shortcuts not working on international keyboard layouts, for example swedish / finnish having the "/" at Shift+7, can not use "show commands" (Ctrl+/) shortcut at all at the moment
One thing to Add to @Kiichi Takeuchi's Idea please also make it possible to use Keyboard shortcuts even if the Teams Window is not highlighted for certain functions such as Muting! If you are working in different systems and tools inside a team you sometimes need to mute yourself during work ... which is also not possible with the current shortcut ctrl+shift+m
This is basic functionality every half decent application has this.
It's just baffling how you don't have this.

The Ctl+Shift+C to start a call is incredibly frustrating when I try to paste without formatting Ctl+Shift+V (or add that as a right click option)

I would also like the ability to use a single key to mute/unmute. Kids find it difficult to unmute using this 3 keyboard shortcuts. NEED CUSTOMIZATION ASAP

It is a hight time...we need personalised keyboard shortcuts

I would also like the ability to use a single key to mute/unmute, for example the play/pause key.
Ctrl + Shift + C as an alternative to copy is common in some terminals. Having this start calls with no confirmation had led me to waste my colleagues time in multiple occasions
This is a really important idea to make users able to customize their experience and simplify these short cuts. three key combos can get hard to remember
Zoom's keyboard shortcuts are great ...
ALT+M, ALT+V ...
Just so simple
they have to do something about it. Its really a high time now. I have a habit of pressing Ctrl+Shift+C/V to copy paste in simple format and I always end up calling the group chat or person accidentally. very annoying to me and others both

I'm for it too! Some shortcuts in Teams are overlapping with my other apps and this is annoying (e.g. Microsoft Visual Studio ctrl+shift+space).
Please give me a choice to change shortcuts like it is in other apps.

High time this should be prioritized, doesn't look like it should be a big effort.
To minimize the effort, just have a text or json file, that the user can edit/customize and the Team app can parse/read.

PLEASE ADD THIS! I have trouble using Teams as a power user :(
Ian Kemp commented
@Kristopher Fieler I have the EXACT SAME PROBLEM! Whoever chose these keyboard shortcuts obviously was NOT a software developer, which kinda meshes with the whole usability (or rather, lack thereof) of Teams as a whole.
Please sort out line return so it is Alt + Enter like in Excel and not ****+Enter
A keyboard shortcut for code snippets is much needed.
