  1. Video/Call button often clicked accidenlty because it is too close to minimize button

    I often minimize my app but when I am in a conversation tab with someone, the video/call button is directly under the minimize button and I often hit the video/call button by accident. Please place the button next to the user name but not underneath the minimize button.

  2. right-click to quote and reply

    In Skype, we have a very handful feature that allow us to right-click then choose "Quote" to get a message to be quoted in chat-box.
    I think it would be nice if we could have it on Teams.

  4. **actual** markdown support

    The current markdown implementation is simply bad as it's not actual markdown. Instead it's some kind of in-line format guesser that changes what you type on enter.

    * it doesn't work in the client
    * it doesn't apply to messages submitted via webhook integrations
    * it doesn't work on cut-n-pasted text
    * it's not complete (tons of markdown syntax missing)
    * it doesn't allow simple shortcuts via "/extension" (looking at you, /giphy)

    in-line reformatting is slow and often unpredictable in the way it responds as you type, making for a poor experience, especially as you attempt to reformat a message…

  6. Make cache clear easier

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams のキャッシュクリアの簡易化を希望します。

    Make cache clear easier
    ***************
    Microsoft Teams のモバイルアプリ、クライアントアプリ、web アプリはそれぞれキャッシュクリアの手順が異なると認識をしております。
    キャッシュクリアの手順が複雑であるため、ボタン一つでキャッシュクリアを行えるなど、現段階よりも簡易的なキャッシュクリアの実装を希望します。

    Microsoft Teams mobile app, client app, web app, they all have different way to clear cache. Make cache clear easier by clearing cache on button click as it may be confusing to some users.

    Thank you for your consideration.

  7. Teams Kiosk Mode

    There is currently no native way to put Teams in kiosk mode so that the user remains within the application.

  8. Transcribe audio messages sent from Teams mobile app

    In addition to making the audio content searchable, a transcription would allow hearing impaired individuals to consume audio messages sent from Mobile clients.

  10. Copy and Paste

    When trying to copy and paste, if you hold your mouse over the last word in a sentence a menu tab will show instead and does not allow to copy only that word but instead you will need to copy the whole sentence. Really annoying. That menu should only appear if we do right click.

  11. Higher contrast font colors, more font size choices

    Have the font color selection include fonts with better contrast levels from the background. On the standard white background (don't know about others as my company has disabled themes), colors other than black are extremely hard to read.

    As other users have noted, please add more font size choices, particularly for Wiki page titles. They are barely distinguishable from subheadings.

  12. Make the 'message delivered' icon green in chats

    The icon for delivered messages looks like a clock now, which indicates it is not yet delivered. To make more clear a message is delivered, make it green, or remove the circle on the check mark.

  14. meeting call me back controls need to be more visible

    When joining from a Computer with Teams installed - It's awesome that the dial out function is enabled from the landing screen.
    Many users say they miss that the functionality is even there because of the placement and the fact the coloring blends into the background.
    Can the functionality be made more prominent?

  15. Add "In Review" or "On Hold" to Progress status of a Task

    To align with Agile methodologies, which have four status options for "user stories"/tasks, add a fourth option in the Progress drop down menu on each Task. The fourth option could be customizable or could be fixed to either "In Review" or "On Hold." Either gets a similar point across.

    The four options in Agile could be:
    to-do
    doing
    in review
    completed

  16. speech to text for chat interaction

    User on the Tech Community has reported they find the app difficult because they suffer from carpal tunnel and so would like to do chats and start a call by speech. I believe that Teams should be made accessible to all as far as possible

  19. auto hide sidebar should hide after choosing channel/team

    When the side bar is on auto-hide (when window is sized to a smaller width), once a Team channel is clicked, the sidebar should auto-hide again.

  20. Enter button should return!!!

    Its so hard to write something formal, especially to a manager or to another team. Its very irritating when you hit return expecting a return but rather actually send the message, sometimes incomplete...
