  1. Allow users to change FONT SIZE in settings.

    The system font size is NOT enough (relative sizing). If I increase font size in OS it messes up other apps I need the ability to chane the size just in Teams

    • 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.

      • 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

        • 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...

          • Allow Office Online tabs to respect the dark theme setting rather than have a bright white default background.

            Allow Office Online tabs (Excel, Word, OneNote, etc) to respect the dark / High Contrast theme setting rather than have a bright white default background.

            As a sight loss user, this causes a barrier for me in the desktop version of Teams, causing eye strain.

            • 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…

                In Skype, I could see the status message under the contact name if I change a setting to give each contact multiple lines of visibility. I would like to be able to see the status message under their contact name

                • 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?

                  • Fully integrated High-Contrast Accessibility when opening files in Teams

                    You can make Microsoft Teams better by providing High-Contrast Accessibility support when opening documents within Teams.

                    Currently, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote files do not open in High Contrast. within Teams.

                    Selecting the Teams High-Contrast theme has no impact on this action.
                    Additionally, Windows 10 High-Contrast settings can't be applied, as the action of opening documents is occurring within the Teams "shell".

                    Thanks,

                        • Notifications

                          There is no visual indication that you have any messages in "Teams", like Chats and Activities there is nothing there, you would have to click on the teams and then scroll through the possibly hundreds of "team" chats you are in. It is absolutely frustrating to have to continuously check that tab to find you missed a bunch of things.

                            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.

                              • Cannot reorder Teams if there are more than monitor window height. Cannot reorder Teams at all except with mouse (accessibility violation)

                                If you have more Teams than will fit vertically in the available space in your monitor/window, you will not be able to drag any above a certain point, making it possible to reorder them. The pane does not scroll up, even when the mouse approaches/surpasses the edge.

                                Also, AFAIK, using the mouse is the only way to reorder Teams. For people who cannot use a mouse, there is no solution.

                                At a minimum, please offer these (hopefully low-hanging) solutions:

                                1. Right-click a Teams menu and choose "Move Up / Move Down"

                                      • 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
