TEAMS is THE WORST!
You forced the replacement of Skype for Business without having the same (even minimal) functionality available in Teams.
1.) There is no pop-out chat window for participating in multiple conversations at once.
2.) No easy way to see missed chats (flashing icon isn’t in real time or noticeable); No Outlook notifications of missed chat summary.
3.) No Chat summary auto-cataloged in Outlook Conversations
4.) Lack of searching of previous Conversations
5.) Lack of deletion of some Conversation parts
6.) Automatic minimalization of Team Meeting screen share when trying to access files or other content in Teams.
7.) Lack of tight integration with Outlook Calendar and Teams Status. (Busy/Away/etc) The availability of a person in Teams does not always reflect accurately.
8.) No way to keep a resizable screen up for quick and easy visual as to who on the Team is Available for a chat. The Chat box is large and can’t be effectively resized.
Overall our team members are very frustrated with Teams! It feels like we are being forced to endure a Beta testing situation with Teams roll-out.
The lack of these basic but heavily relied upon functionalities in Teams has slowed our internal productivity and collaboration!
Fix it or allow users to continue using Skype for Business until the app is ready for prime-time, daily business use.
My god what a STUPID app
Every iteration of chat app is worse than previous.
Reply in 1 click to any massage is a must. Why it should take N steps to achieve this?
Why there is only 6 emojis available to a message? Does this really take a lot of resources?
Why cant you forward a message? Again it takes N steps to achieve this basic task.
Stop taking out basic functions and stop putting in useless stuff.
Immersive Reader or Translate or Save this message is less usefull than functions I described above.
Microsoft, do you even pay attention to these comments? people aren't roasting you cause its fun to do so, no but some of the organizations we are a part of unfortunately force us to use this app of yours that is such a burden to use because its inconsistent.
I can log n perfectly fine from my smart phone but not from my pc using the same account...
I cannot join any teams unless they send me a link for the meeting. in all honestly I don't even want to bother to understand your app because it feel so tedious. one tip from me to you is make it simpler get your inspiration from zoom. or even better use your skype platform
so ******* bad
idk why is evreryone in my school using it
I could get approved for a mortgage in fewer steps than it takes to sign into a Teams meeting.

IT IS SIMPLE THE WORST CHAT PROGRAM EVER!!!

it lags, freezes, replaces typed in sentences, sometimes what I typed is just disappearing, it takes around 5 min while others can read my type
SO MICROSOFT I WANT SKYPE BACK
The only semi-workable solution I've found is to not be logged into Teams with notifications in Teams set to as soon as possible. That way the system at least tries to send me an email for people that message me. Even with that I only get the last line of whatever was sent which gives no context. You can't just reply to the teams email like you could with Skype for Business. I have a handful of other complaints about it as well. All in, like the multiple pages of comments say, it is just awful. A forced change should at least have the basic functionality of the tool it is replacing.
My critical items:
1. small pop out contact window (already have three full monitors, don't have room for another mostly-full screen application). Granted, this is more a personal preference, but this is main way I use Skype for Business.
2. received chats should automatically go to their own pop out window so they have decent visibility with email of it going to outlook in the event of no response (just like current Skype for Business does)
3. Match or improve upon the "conversation history" sync setup from Skype for Business (absolutely critical item)
I completely agree! It's horrible as a document vault. It keeps defaulting to "Chat", even if I'm in "Files"! It's confusing between the web version and the app, which I have no idea about. It keeps trying to open things up in SharePoint. I can't search for documents. I can't open more than one window and go back and forth. I can't go between Chat and Files or it takes me back to the beginning. I can't find the documents I need. It's just horrible.
Why so many companies are trying to use it is beyond me. Hopefully they will find something better and stop letting Microsoft trying to force horrible products on us all. Why don't they just stick to what they are good at - Microsoft Office. They don't need to monopolize every aspect of our lives. Don't even get me started on their dysfunctional and aggravating videoconferencing. Leave that to Zoom and the others that are focusing on that! Stop trying to take over the world!!
I can't EVEN DOWNLOAD this thing... extremely frustrating! It goes in circles because it keeps thinking I am using my institutional email for the sign-in...
I cannot believe how user UNfirendly this is and cannot believe our courts are using this platform. Bringing the inefficiencies up at the next professional order GA - which is tonight!

This TEAMS really sucks!! It has a ton of glitches. It could disappear, quit working, awful quality, and you are not able to delate a chat, only what you have written there are always crowded windows with old chats or messages.
Awful, unstable, lags all the time, and no quality!! I am not a big fan of any Microsoft products and TEAMS gives me another big reason for that.
#1 most easily fixable = MONTHLY CALANDER VIEW
I love starting a meeting I am supposed to proctor and the record device has just magically disappeared. Not even that it's greyed out, it's just gone. Now I need to spend an hour figuring that out. Just want you to know how much I hate you and and all MS products really. You're a pernicious monopoly along with the rest of big tech. Pure evil. Every year your applications get harder and harder to use. I spend half my life fighting with MS products to just perform their basic functionality.
Oh and thanks for turning my status to yellow every time I step away for a minute and I can't turn this bullshit off. This is big tech's future for all of us. They will try to control and track every aspect of our lives.
100.) No speech to text voice recognition support ...
101.) No share screen and webcam simultaneously....
its been year, Teams is still not mature and lack so many functionalites as compare with others app.
It's only take their programmers few weeks to implement all of these ! What are the MS developers doing all day long ... sip coffee?
I don't think Microsoft care or listen to their users
One of the worst POS ever created.
MS is known for creating pathetic products!
Every day there is an incident with either Exchange or SharePoint, and I am wondering why the heck is Microsoft messing up with their customers on a daily basis. I've been observing it for last few months, there is always some an issue on a daily basis. Literally!
Soon I am definitely planning to switch it to GSuite for sure!

One of the worst application ever I used
Absolutely the worst platform. Why does a user need to sign in to participate in a meeting they were invited too? No phone number automatically for meetings. When clients want to invite me to team "calls" i generally tell them i probably cant make it because teams makes in too difficult to use. Missing a meeting right now in fact. Three different log in attempts and micosofts only helpful suggestion was to use skype. Another ****** product but not as bad as teams.
