  1. Add permanently visible scrollbars and menu or scrollbar

    Give at least the option to have the scrollbars permanently visible as usual in the Windows environment. And add either menus or toolbar for the commands. Moreover give the option to hide the search bar on top. It's very unconfortable because every time you want to move the window you have to drag on one side and not in the centre of the header of the window.

  2. Connector for GitLab

    Hello,

    Our team uses GitLab for source control. While I could find GitHub connectors, there are no GitLab ones. Will this be something you will make available to Teams soon?

  4. Support for passing basic profile info in Connector actions

    Currently actionable messages inserted by a Connector have no clear method of identifying the user that clicked an Action.

    Providing some basic profile information such as userPrincipalName would allow the back-end service to connect the dots between an Action and the User executing that action.

    If PII is a concern, providing the the user's ID might reduce the risk observers from capturing the user's identity while still allow services with proper authorization to obtain the userPrincipalName from Microsoft Graph.

  5. teams web join share

    We've had reports that our employees could not join Teams share sessions they were invited to via the web, but could join the same meetings in the Teams app. Please resolve so that Teams share sessions people are invited can be joined via web.

  6. Default channel for Teams name

    I'd like to be able to choose a channel as default when clicking on the team name in the left side of the screen.

    When a team only has one channel (general channel), you get directly to that channel when clicking on the team name in the left side. When the team has many channels and you click on the team name you don´t even get into the team or any channel (if all channels are showing in a list under team name, it "closes"). You have to click on a channel to get inside the team.

  7. Notifications for unread messages should be visible on icon

    There is no notification visible for any new messages or for unread messages. If there are unread messages in this application these should be visible on icon. This may be indicated just by a Red dot. No need to show numbers if that is difficult.

  8. Add more themes

    Please add more themes rather then just high contrast, dark and white. The high contrast one is horrible, dark is great but wish there were more colors than just purple

  9. Allow the markdown syntax for code snippet

    Code Snippets feature is now available but requires a lot of click / button. It would be great to be able to juste use the markdown syntax : ```csharp ``` for instance.
    We use this syntax in Azure DevOps wiki, it seems legit to have the same experience in Ms Teams

  12. Increase the speed of the app

    Sending photos, videos or files should be faster... like other messenger app. It takes almost 1 min to add, click on the size you want, download, and send. Please help to improve this.

  14. vs code integration

    Integration with VS Code would be a huge help! Being able to send code snippets directly from VS Code into Teams, and being able to have Teams discussion appear in VS Code so you can chat and edit in real time.

  15. Allow a single user to join a Team meeting on multiple devices simultaneously

    In Skype for Business, I am able to accept an Audio invitation on the phone app while accepting the Video/Screen sharing invitation from my PC simultaneously. It would be very helpful if I could do that from within Teams as well since I keep my earbuds connected to my phone but my laptop screen makes it much easier to view shared content.

  16. Azure devops account different from teams account

    Because of a long history with Microsoft account issues with TFS and later Azure devops, I've ended up with a different account login for azure devops than the one I use with MS Teams.
    And then I cannot add Azure devops page to my team as the account used to log in to MS Teams must be the same as the one accessing Azure dev ops for some reason. Can this be fixed, or is there a work-around?

  17. Allow setting creation and modification time when creating chat messages

    We need to set creation and modification times of chat messages in a migration scenario where messages from another system must be migrated to Teams.

    This is currently not possible as the fields are marked as read-only. (see here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/chatmessage?view=graph-rest-beta)

  18. Add unread notification bubble to app icon

    Hi,

    Slack provides a notification bubble with the count of unread mentions. It also provides a notification bubble with a dot if there are no unread mentions, but there are channels with unread messages (example attached).

    Currently, Teams includes a bubble with the count of unread mentions, but there is no way to tell from the app icon in the dock if there is other unread activity. Could you please add this feature?

    Thanks,

    Matt

  19. Add API call to reply to a thread

    This would be really useful to allow us to integrate Teams more effectively with our internal applications and use it as a flexible conversations platform.

  20. Teams Add App Graph API

    I tested new Add App API, we like it and that's what we were waiting for. However, this API can be further improved by providing the 'id' already mentioned in app manifest file.

    Currently in order to run this API, it requires app id which is generated by Teams Platform when the app is uploaded.

    We have developed our own teams Tab App which we want to upload to the teams private store and we want to install this app to the desired tab dynamically. This API serves our partial purpose, we still need to get the id from teams…
