  1. 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…

      • 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...

        • 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.

          • 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.

                  • Actual keyboard usability

                    Trying to use Teams with a keyboard is a dreadful experience. I'd like to explain why, here, but it wouldn't do it justice. The product team just needs to use it for a day, trying not to touch the mouse and write down every time they have no choice but to reach for the mouse. Keyboard nav needs a complete overhaul, not the token keyboard shortcuts found on `ctrl+.`.

                    This applies to the app and the web ui.

                    • unobvious notitifactions

                      I miss many notes and messages just because I didn't notice they were written by a team mate. I beleive notifications should be more obvious so that we cannot miss them.

                      • Good app, annoying login process

                        Teams loads by force when you start Windows. This behavior is annoying when you boot up your computer for an urgent task and Teams pops up. Also, when using the mobile version I had to provide login credentials three times (this is not because I typed anything wrong). Good app but these behavior is annoying.

                        • 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

                          • Keyboard enter key not sending

                            On the IPad Pro when pressing the enter key on the external keyboard it makes a new line and doesn’t send the message. This is so annoying as I use Teams a lot and I have to touch the screen on every message to send instead of just pressing enter on the keyboard.
                            I can’t see any settings to change this and all the other messaging apps work fine with the enter key.

                            • Make the chat input field active when switching back to Teams

                              When I switch to another program and back to Teams, I automatically start typing, but Teams has given active focus to window controls, meaning my typing is ignored until I hit the spacebar, at which point Teams minimizes itself. NOT the behavior I want to see!

                              Make it so Teams automatically chooses the chat input window for focus when I switch to it so that I can simply click the taskbar icon or alt-tab to it and start typing. Right now it requires far too many clicks which is disruptive and hurts my productivity.

                                Currently, team are marked as Favorite by default, while this list is not sorted by alphabet. Although this list can be sorted manually but not everybody aware that, and if we have many things on this list, we just don't want to sort it manually anymore. We want to have ability to scan the list by alphabet. And removing Favorite is quite boring task.

                                When you have a big list of teams, you will just want to make some of them as favorite, while leave the rest in ABC order. Making just some teams as favorite is better than making…

                                  • On chat, allow sizing of the columns for recent and activity.

                                    Currently it is as if there is no "wrap text" on the speech balloons; resizing the entire window just cuts off the left edge of the chat, if you want to see the list of names at the left. Would like to be able to resize the chat side to fit in a narrower space, while maintaining the list of names.
