  1. Contacts panel no longer auto hides

    Before the last update, the Contacts panel on the left with the Recent chats list no longer auto-hides.

    This is eating up a lot of screen space that could be used in the Conversation panel.

  2. Display YouTube video title and description when sharing a link

    When sharing a YouTube link, it does not pick the title and the description from the link. Instead, it shows the YouTube description.

  3. Copying text from chats.

    I'd like to be able to select an entire conversation so I can copy and paste it into another document. Even better, a "Save As..." feature.

  4. For Teams chat history, it would be helpful to have group chats color coded or highlighted to make it more obvious those are not 1:1 chats.

  5. Ability to expand the header so you can see the file's full name

    If the file's name is too long, right now, you can only hover over the file name to see the file's full name. Please add a function so users can expand the header.

  7. Screen Share needs dual monitors and Control feature not working

    Screen share needs an option to show both screens simultaneously. Also during screen share, you may request control but the option to give access is greeted out and doesn’t work. The user sharing their screen should be able to give control and that feature does not work either.

  8. Not user friendly and bad user interface

    Teams can be made.similar to skype for business which is far more user friendly and pretty good user interface as well.

  9. Make global key bindings configurable

    I see there are other bug reports for Visual Studio but I was just on a call with a colleague and I couldn't press ctrl + shift + space in IntelliJ IDEA which made coding more difficult.

    Other software that does global keystrokes are editable so that they can be remapped so there aren't conflicts, Teams should also allow for this or at the very least be able to toggle off the global keystrokes entirely.

  10. Option to minimize features on Teams to access another symultaniously.

    Considering there are numerous features that can be accessed in one single window on Teams--Files, Calendar, Teams, Chat and so on--it makes sense to have the option to work on each one of them simultaneously. Meaning, we need to be able to minimize one feature and work on another at the same time. Right now, we basically are closing one to access another. I need to be able to access "Files" and check my "Calendar" at the same time. We could even have tabs for each of these features which can be accessed at the same time by minimizing one…

  12. add keyboard shortcuts

    Please introduce using keyboard shortcuts and menu options to be used with the keyboard (eg alt F for file) to the functionality. This is not available. Also when excell files are added under the file section the ommon keyboard functionality to acces the menu/format cells don 't work if I edit an excell file that is in microsoft tasks.

    Since microsoft tasks is getting used more in the company I work for I'm exceeding the RSI related parameters almost every day.

  14. Adding a contact to lists

    In right-context menu, add to favorites is accessible but not the other lists.
    Adding to a list pop-over should be ready for typing, a need to click before is unnecessary step.
    Suggest adding more contacts when a contact is added.
    Option to add the team as contact group.
    Option to have more then 20 conversations visible in active conversations.

  16. Moving from one part of teams via links to other parts of Teams

    Using Planners is a great way to organise work. However some of the tasks link to information in wiki's. If you insert a link to a wiki into the task, you have to open another browser to follow the link from the task to the wiki. If linking information in different Teams tools could avoid this it would be helpful.

  17. make planner more accessible through teams.

    Best way to access planner right now is through browser window. planner is in the expandable menu for the teams app, and i get notifications through teams about unfinished or new tasks. but there's a degree of separation in the UI between me and accessing planner information. would be nice as a more integrated part of the teams app.

  18. Would REALLY love the option to choose if my "enter" key sends the message or just goes to the next line

    I send a LOT of messages before they are ready because I press "enter" to go to the next line and format text. Would really like the option to not have ENTER send a message automatically...

  19. Aend the [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Del] to the remote controlled desktop.

    Microsoft Temas provide the Remote Controll fucntion also have the Microsoft Teams for Remote Assist service plan.
    However, it did not provide the function to send the [Ctrl] + [Alt] + [Del] to remote controlled desktop.
    This feature is mandatory and will help al lot when we provide the remote user support.

  20. contact list as separate side bar

    skype has a nice contacts list sidebar, then when you text the person on there its a nice lil window... this is too clunky to have the chat attached continually to the contacts.
