  1. 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.

  2. Put a very thin gray border around the main window frame

    Put a very thin gray border around the main window frame when running Dark Theme so I can find the bottom corners on top of other "dark mode" things, like Windows Desktop (black), Notepad++ (dark theme), etc.

  4. Have the Links Contained in Emails Open the Teams Application Directly

    When clicking the "Reply in Teams" button located inside the emails that result from mentions, it currently pulls up the browser. Then there's a wait until the browser window pulls up the conversation inside Teams application. This is inefficient for the user and their breaks work flow.

    It would be helpful if click in the email link brought the user directly into the Teams application.

  5. Focus lost when switching from to and from Teams app

    When I edit an Excel file inside Teams app, and then switch windows, when I come back the focus is lost in the Excel sheet - very annoying for any cut-and-paste operations to require an additional click every time. The focus in the Teams app should be persistent.

  6. 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.

  7. The technology seems good but the Design and the user experience are terrible.

    Please please fix the Design and user experience. For inspiration, look at Apple

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  14. Improve the interface

    Hi there,

    I'm using constantly Teams app and I think it's a good product but not as good as it can be.

    I would like to ask you if there is anything in the loop of improving the interface/accessibility.

    I always find the current interface not smart or intuitive as you my have to do multiple task in the same time such as: being in a call, taking notes, visualise a document; which if all are in Teams it's impossible to access all at once and currently there is no function of going back to a view from your previous…

  15. Saperate the Download and Delete button

    Download is frequently used and clicked often then Delete, putting them together forces to pause for a second and think that one doesn't delete the file accidently. While I am building the muscle memory to do the daily task successfully but their close proximity is getting in the way.

    Suggest to put the Delete way down in the menu.

  18. 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?!

  19. Add notification sounds! I activated every possible notification and unless I'm staring at my computer/phone/pad, I miss messages

    Unless I'm staring at my computer/phone/pad I never know when I have a message for lack of notification sound! Very frustrating!

  20. Tiny URL to files in sharepoint

    When copying a link via Get Link menu from files tab the URL is too big and makes it difficult to read the comments added with the URL.

    It would be better if Get Link menu can give a shortened URL (like tinyurl).
