  1. Teams should acknowledge hardware keyboards on iPad correctly

    On an iPad, if you have a hardware keyboard (eg: Smart Keyboard) Teams does not automatically figure out that it’s a hardware keyboard and doesn’t do things like remap the ‘return’ key to mean ‘send’. Every other chat app I use does this.

    • Make a three column Layout: [Chat] [Teams] [Tabs]

      Going back and fowared to chat is unbearable if trying to do serious work on other tabs/channels.

        • Support actions (buttons) in mobile app

          Currently actions (e.g. the response buttons of the Polly bot) are only available on the desktop and browser clients.

          In some of our scenarios (e.g. voting where to go for lunch, while 2 of 6 people are still on the road) this is a show stopper which prevents us to use Teams in this case.

          It would be great if the mobile apps support actions/buttons. In our case, we would use this in combination with the custom webhook functionality to move a lot more user interactions from other systems into Teams.

          • iOS CallKit integration with Contacts and Siri

            In iOS, users have the ability to initiate calls from the native Contacts app or Siri, through Skype for Business. Teams should have the same functionality.

            • Android App does not work well with 2FA enabled

              Our company recently turned on two factor authentication for our accounts. Now I can barely use Teams app on my phone. It's fine after a login, but after some time the app stops syncing and I cannot post anything or reply to chats. Some chats still come through, though. The most annoying thing - I cannot log out to log back in. Removing app from 'history' does not help. I have to either restart my phone or 'Force Stop' the app to get it back to normal. After a restart of force stop I am presented with login screen and…

              • Mobile client naming standardisation

                Please standardise the naming conventions used …

                In the web and desktop clients the in team conversations are called "conversations" but in the mobile client they are titled "chat" which leads to confusion with foreign students as they are told that "Chat" is private one to one or one to many whereas conversations are "public" to the team membership.

                When they use the mobile client they get stuck knowing which is the private and which is the stuff inside the team and this is a barrier to greater adoption.

                  • Be able to search for and join teams from mobile app

                    Currently, the search only returns messages and people. it should also return teams so you can easily join them. The "manage teams" view should also allow you to join existing teams. Right now, you can only create new. This leads to people creating duplicate teams.

                    • Choice of browser with iPad Teams app

                      We don't have the option to choose between an online browser version or the app (worth limited functionality). But once in the app, we don't have a choice of browser... It's Apple's Safari...
                      Well, I would like to have the option to choose which browser to start for example when i click on a Tab. More and more iOS 11 apps give you this options in the settings menu

                      • Sync people into phone contacts

                        I like to have my address book auto updated with contact information for my colleagues.

                        Picture, home and mobile numbers should all be synced into a contact card.

                        Filter-wise, selecting an Office 365 group or Team would only sync the relevant people.

                        Skype for business mobile currently does this.

                        • Open Sharepoint library tab in app rather than mobile site

                          Thanks very much for adding all tabs!

                          We have SharePoint document library that we use rather than putting the files into Teams itself. Right now, this tab opens in the mobile site rather than in the OneDrive app which would be a natural place for it.

                          The same thing goes for Planner, which redirects to the mobile site rather than the new Planner app.

                          • Simplify navigation in the mobile app

                            Nowadays, it has become customary to swipe left or right to go in and out of chats, lists, channels, etc in mobile apps, so that users can use a single hand to navigate between ongoing tasks, team conversations, chats, and more. Having recently converted from another chat based collaboration app, this is something I miss. I need to make an extra effort to reach the "back arrow" in the upper left corner.

                            • Access to Teams files on Windows 10 Phone

                              Using a Windows 10 Phone, the Teams app does not seem to be able to access the files from OneDrive or the Sharepoint sites that a team is associated with. This severely limits usefulness of collaboration within the app. Would like to see files access!!!

                                  Wanting to share a document from any of the MS Office Suite programs to Teams from an android phone? No luck.

                                  Word
                                  Excel
                                  Power Point
                                  One Note

                                  Share

                                  List

                                  No Teams

                                  No Skype Enterprise

                                  WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook all accounted for but no sharing a document to a team member or channel.

                                  You own both sets of software.

                                  • Two factor authentication should only prompt once and send just one text

                                    Two factor authentication should only prompt once and send just one text, instead of opening a whole sequence of password pages and sending half a dozen text messages with different values, only one of which works on any one password prompt page, and even after getting the right password the other password pages are left behind, so one needs to know that they can just be ignored by using the back button.

                                    This provides a horrible experiences, especially when trying to authenticate on a tablet or laptop when the text goes to a separate phone because the delay in physically…

                                    • Switch call between Desktop and Mobile Client

                                      Need the ability to switch from one client to another seamlessly with a button. Mobile and Desktop client should sync up to show if you are actively in a meeting and should be able to do a handoff between any client without a hiccup.

                                        • add external users using mobile app

                                          I was trying to add an external contact using the skype mobile app and notice this feature does not exist. In the teams mobile app add this capability so it's better than Skype!
