      The zoom feature has released to the public ring. Using CRTL + or CTRL – zoom in and out on a Windows PC.

      I need to correct the information I provided last month about MAC. It appears the MAC version is still in testing and hasn’t yet gone out to the public. It is “In Testing” but will be coming to the public soon!

      The item tracking this specific update can be found at: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/admin/v3/suggestions/16933183/activity

      There now is a UI element that tells you your current zoom level and a Setting within the UI to preset your zoom preference.

      Since the zoom feature could very well cover the vast majority of user needs, based on the majority of comments and feedback, I will flag this item as Partially Done.

      Thank you for all the feedback and support!

    • Captioning on Audio and/or Video

      As being employer to several staff who is Deaf and reply on using subtitle when watching video. I was surprised to see no subtitle/closed captioned feature when I play a video called Introduction to Microsoft Team Product Tour (2.03 minutes video) as enclosed in this attachment.
      Thank you.
      Regards

      • Keyboard shortcuts

        Hi, Can't you offer keyboard shortcuts to get to different tabs (activity, chat, teams, meetings, files)? This will make our life much easier.

        Thanks.

          Teams does have some shortcuts you may use.

          To see the shortcut list you can click on your user icon within Teams.
          From the drop down list go to Keyboard Shortcuts.
          A second window will open showing you the available shortcuts that Teams has to offer at this time.

          Keep posting feedback.

          • Shorter Links !

            Just make the links shorter, when pasting a link to another location on the chat.

            It's always too poluted, We write down a 1 line comment and the link extension has 6 lines (!)

            Thanks

              You can create add a hyperlink to any text, which will allow you to avoid massive links being copied into the chat/channels.
              Expand the compose box by clicking the icon “A” with a pencil just below your compose line. Once in the expanded view you can create a link by clicking the icon that looks like a chain at the top of the compose box.

              You can also highlight your text and use this function to change your selected text into a hyperlink. Once the hyperlink dialog opens update the link location and modify your text if you so desire.

            • Up Arrow / Keyboard to Edit Last Message in Teams / Channels

              When will this be added to the compose message textbox in the Teams / Channels area of the app? It currently only functions in Chats and I'm sure a lot of people that voted for that (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16932934-up-arrow-to-edit-last-message) meant a vote for Channels / Teams, too or maybe even more importantly.

              • High Contrast

                For vision impaired uses that use custom High Contrast Theming, the Teams apps does not correctly map to the colors. For example, left list uses the Disabled vs Selected colors. Microsoft should be fully committed to one standard for Theming; especially for High Contrast Theme. It is critical for the vision impaired.

                  I apologize for being fairly ignorant on this topic. The color scheme setting can be found by clicking your portrait icon within Teams at the upper right. Under the General Settings you can select, Default color theme, Dark, or High Contrast. This follows the Windows OS high contrast theme and my understanding is also following the global standards.

                  If you are having issues could you let me know what exactly is happening or specifics you feel need to change? If you could tell me both and maybe even email me screen shots to TeamsML@microsoft.com I can work to see what I can do for you. Please list the subject in the email as “High Contrast”.

                  Thanks!

                  • Different Notification Colours

                    It would be nice if the "followed channel" notification was a different color than the "direct mention" indicator. since I can't tell the difference, i find myself heading over to teams just to see conversations that I'm probably not interested in, which ends up being bad context-switching for me

                      I would like to gather some more feedback about this topic. I understand the request is for different colored notifications but I wanted to see about your feedback on the different icons.

                      We currently have different icons depending on the activity you are being notified of.
                      Such as a direct mention in a channel with have the “@” symbol, letting you know you were @ mentioned.
                      A lightbulb icon lets you know about general activity within a channel you follow.
                      A chatbox icon appears when channel is mentioned that you are part of.

                      And so forth… do these icons help you understand the notifications or do you feel color differentiation is also required?

                      Let me know in the comments of this topic thread. Thanks!

                    • scroll to zoom reversed

                      Scrolling to zoom into an image is reversed to what it should be. This behavior is on both mouse wheels and on the magic trackpad for mac

                      • ability to collapse all images, gifs, and links by default like Slack does.

                        Slack has the ability to enable a setting to collapse by default all gifs, images, and links by default. I am someone who hates seeing gifs as some repeating images cycle too quickly and give me headaches or nausea. I prefer the ability to expand the gif/image/link if i think it is relevant to me.

                          • Enable scrolling through a channel with keyboard

                            When I'm working from home, I frequently am using a touchpad and keyboard for my work, so clicking on a scroll button and dragging is really hard and inconvenient.

                            Expected: When I click the pointer in a channel, a message should be selected, and the up and down arrows should move to the previous and next message, respectively.

                            Currently: Here is video.
                            0:01 I select the channel
                            0:04 move my pointer into the channel and click hoping to see a message selected.
                            0:07, 0:09 I move a little closer to a message, and click again and again. Still nothing.
                            0:10…

                            • Don't collapse channels when there is sufficient space to show all

                              When there is sufficient space on the screen to show all channels, do NOT collapse the channel list. We love Teams but have just a few teams and channels. It is extremely annoying with all the extra clicks require to switch between channels when there is so much unused screen space in the navigation bar. If its too hard to determine automatically, then at least insert a setting for the team itself, called "Don't collapse channels" which can prevent this behavior.

                                      • Copy short message

                                        At the moment is not possible, at least not easily, to copy messages that have only one word.

                                        • replace box to type in to start new conversation with clickable button

                                          Conversation is very useful feature when you use teams with good discipline. But not all user are disciplined users. Meaning it is very easy to make mistake to start new conversation when you actually intend to reply to conversation that someone last replied.

                                          I would recommend to hide the box to type in for starting the new conversation, and ask user to click on a button (also with keyboard shortcut) to be able to see the box to type in to start new conversation.
