  1. Provide different colors for various status options

    Provide more colors for various status options that already exist. (ex. purple "in a call", black "presenting", orange "be right back", pink "busy")

    I think this would be of great benefit to the program because red is used for several different status's and this is very confusing.

    So come on, Guys!!! Surely with a whole rainbow spectrum of color to choose from you can add a few more, right?! .

  4. Pinned Channels - Increase Bold Font When There are New Messages

    Pinned channels with new messages appear to be slightly bold, but with the dark theme it's hard to tell which channels are bold (have new messages) and which are not.

    Please make the pinned channels with new messages even more bold than pinned channels with no new messages.

  5. increase font size of incoming messages

    To be able to increase font size on incoming messages not just having to zoom in the app which increases the ui as well making the app take up to much space.

  6. Remove Wiki Tab

    Two items here. Firstly, this completed item did not fix the problem "https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/19002007-wiki-tab-can-be-removed"

    Secondly, originally there was no wiki default. It was OneNote. Please allow us to change the default or put it back to OneNote.

  8. Make the screen smaller

    This is a poor excuse for a replacement for Skype for business. The real estate that it takes up on my monitor is not acceptable. I think a smaller interface ort one that can be adjusted to fi a users needs and also the ability to remove older messages. WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO US?

  10. Allow user to change theme.

    Allow user to change theme just like in any other MS Office program. White screen is too bright and purple color is annoying.

  11. Allow us to opt out of the automatic hiding of teams. It keeps hiding the team I use the most!

    Provide an option where you can turn off the automatic hiding of teams that haven't been used in a while. The current algorithm has a glitch and it is hiding the Team I use the most. I have to "show" it every day!!!

  12. home button

    There should be a "home page" that opens up when you first open the app. It should have any announcements, notifications of anything you need to look at, etc. You should be able to click a "home" button to go to the home page instead of having to click on the icons on the left to move out of the current category you're in. For example, if I am done in the "teams" category, I should not have to click on another icon such as "chat" to get back. There should just be a "home" button.

  14. minimize drop-down arrows won't stay minimized upon returning to tab

    In Chat, I have several groups created with multiple people under each. Every time I need to minimize EACH tab because the lists are so long and I can't easily find who I'm looking quickly. However, if I should need to go to another tab within Teams, everything has gone back to the original extended layout and I'm back at square one. Can we get the minimize drop down arrows to stick please?!

  15. Custom color options for meeting tools overlay (Enter full screen, Meeting Notes, etc.)

    The colors of the overlay icons for the meeting tools can be difficult to see when certain content is shared. Provide an option in Teams to customize the color and contrast of the overlay tools.

  17. RSS Connector name and Favicon added to title of post

    We have various suppliers RSS feeds going into a Channel for operations \ technical teams to be aware of outages of platforms. However, unlike webhooks these all get posted into the Channel with a title of RSS.

    It would be more useful if the name of the RSS feed, which you've got to add "Enter a name for your RSS connection." when you configure it would be used instead.

    It would also be great if for a Webhook or RSS feed, it pulled and used the websites Favicon.

  18. Create a "saved bookmarks" icon on the left along with Activities, etc.

    We use bookmarks a lot to make sure we don't miss stuff we want to follow up on. We can access all of our bookmarks under our profile, but it would be far more convenient if we could access it with one click. My suggestion is that there should be a bookmarks icon along the left bar where Activity, Teams, etc. are located.

  19. Make it accessible! Accessibility is NOT a vote feature its regulatory.

    Make it accessible! Accessibility is NOT a vote feature its regulatory requirement.
    This is because it would never get enough votes to get added otherwise.

  20. Allow live captions to be used in the 'Make a Call' feature, not just when you schedule meetings

    Allow the option to select live captions at all times. Currently, you can only select live captions during scheduled meetings with others. We should be able to use the live captions option whether it's a meeting or an unscheduled call.

    Also thanks for the update of showing who is speaking with the captions in meetings. it's very helpful.
