  1. file shortcut

    It would be nice for a file inside of ms teams to be allowed to have a shortcut of itself to be placed inside other ms teams channel folders. Therefore, there isn’t duplication of the same file, yet it’s still accessible from different channels to people who have permissions to access one of the channels that has that shortcut within. When people click that shortcut they are opening the original file from the original folder that it’s in.

  3. text color

    when paste text, have the option to paste as plain text. reformatting text on teams is fairly hard (color font button isn't inuitive and the color options are too muted) and other issues. But the ROOT of the issue for me at least is that when I paste text from other places, it keeps the original formatting which doesn't look good or even legible in teams. If I could just paste as plain text, I wouldn't care as much at the poor process of reformatting text.

  5. The bar in the middle of the screen shouldn't be shifted to left

    During the meeting when we press people or chat button to see what's there the bar which includes buttons is shifting left and if we accidentally press twice (sometimes mouse double click problem) then we press TO REQUEST CONTROL from other participant.
    So the bar should be still and shouldn't be shifted to left

  6. Not require top layer only notifications or allow notification area to be moved.

    I hate that when messages or notifications pop up in the lower right corner they "hide" other things there that I'm trying to access. Then I either have to wait for it to go away or await an X to propagate so I can close it. It would be great to have an option to allow those pop ups to NOT dominate the area (not have to be top layer). And/or be able to be MOVED regarding where they normally pop up. Another example, I get an outlook inbox notification in the lower right corner that I want to review…

  8. Keyboard shortcuts to navigate directly to various channel tabs (Posts/Files/Wiki/etc)

    We can use Ctrl+G to navigate to a channel, but it opens on the main page. For faster navigation, it would be convenient to have a keyboard shortcut that navigates directly to, for example, the Files tab. Or a keyboard shortcut to navigate channel tabs quickly.

  10. Navigation

    During a meeting I went to see who else was in the meeting and who was speaking but there was no way for me to navigate back to the main screen where the speaker was sharing his screen.

  11. Have all unfinished assignments shown at once

    Instead of having to select a team to see if I have an assignment, I want to be able to see every unfinished assignment from every team at once.

  13. Toggle between tabs

    Allow users to navigate between different tabs while working on the tabs at the same time. For now if I am creating a meeting invite, I cannot get out of there without saving to reply a message in Chat tab, nor to view calendar.

  14. Maybe get devs who know what they are doing?

    The level of just plain stupid in this app is ASTOUNDING. First someone decided to let the GUI take up more than 30% of the desktop real estate, and a team of people said "Oh, yep. That's a great idea boss!"

    Then someone (probably the same someone) decided to put banner pop-ups RIGHT ON TOP of the input element, so you can't SEE what you're typing! Again, GENIUS!

  15. Download popup

    1:1 chat, or 1:x chat; Download popup, similar to "<DisplayName> is typing.....", but this would be when someone is downloading a file, you just attached. "<DisplayName> is downloading the file you shared......". Let this popup linger, just for a moment, and really only for that one message where you just shared something. no need to know someone is downloading something shared 2 days or weeks ago.

  16. Special characters

    It would be very helpfull if special characters could be entered with the use of the CTRL key (similar to Word, Outlook), e.g. CTRL+SHIFT+:, u returns as ü

  17. Shortcuts when Teams in background

    Shortcuts that work even when Teams isn't the active window. e.g. Skype for Business uses Windows + F4 to mute/unmute microsphone even when minimised/in background.

  19. Assignments page: show how many assignmentsare still open on each team

    It doesn't make sense that the assignments page makes you click on the team in order to see if there are still any open assignments.
