Allow "classic" view or allow to size Call History to shrink in width or to be hidden after May 2021 Teams Update..
Teams Calls view radically changed (reported May 11, 2021) and clearly not for the better. This change will generate complaints from our user base that hasn't been updated yet. Please address this as soon as possible by providing a "classic" option or the ability to shrink the History showing in the middle. The screen shots provided have removed pictures, names, and titles that aren't relevant to demonstrating this view. Thank you.
Perhaps I've missed them, but I've not seen ANY positive comments on the new Calls view. It appears that the Microsoft Team didn't bother to investigate the impact of this on the user community at all. NOT IMPRESSED!!!
The new view is terrible - virtually useless. I rarely need to see call history but it is available in the Activity tab so it is redundant here. The right pane of the new view is too small to functionally replace the previous view. There is now no view available to easily see all contacts in a group with their availability status.
New view is broken. Very limiting in caller groups. Total **** update.
They also removed creating call groups, which I use. This new view really stinks. At least allow the classic views.

Change it back. Microsoft has let us down bigtime. Cannot see who in our big organisation is online / busy / in a meeting / offline. USELESS view.

Please change it back, this new view is a joke!

I agree with the suggestion above to either shrink or remove history from the calls tab in teams.
At least give us the option.

I also prefer the old classic view that allows to quickly select who to contact based on personal group lists.
I think History in the "speed dial" is redundant with the history in the conversations Tab.
An option to swith between new and old view is a minimum.

It would be very helpful if users could rearrange and/or resize these items, to match their user needs. My team has already expressed frustration. Thank you for the consideration. I placed my vote for the option to return to "classic".
The new view is just awful. Call history that I rarely need occupies most of the space whereas speed dial was moved into the small remaining place on the right. Even worse groups are always collapsed and have to be expanded every time you switch views.
Please supply an option so I can revert back to the old view as I found it much easier to navigate.
Yes, please change it back or provide an option to make the view similar to the classic view. Even if I wanted to see the History information, why does it need to waste so much horizontal space? My screen is at least 50% blank.
The new view is great and provides my workers much more information. They often have to relate call history to numbers in other applications and having it all on one screen is brilliant!
The new view is absolutely terrible.
An option to keep the old view or would have been preferable or at least come up with an option to shrink the History column which is way to wide and to make the speed dial column wider which is to narrow.
The layout should be user configurable. This new look is not an improvement. Please revisit the decision to mess things up and make so many unhappy Teams users.
Speed Dial is now harder to use, making the word "Speed" much less appropriate.
