  1. User Status is confusing for Busy, In Meeting, on call

    For Busy, In Meeting and On Call, all shows same Red color circle as status. I am not able get from icon until I hover on it and read the tooltip. :(

    It should be different for each status so that user can get the meaning from its icon itself.
    Thanks.

  2. Allow us to opt out of the automatic hiding of teams. It keeps hiding the team I use the most!

    Provide an option where you can turn off the automatic hiding of teams that haven't been used in a while. The current algorithm has a glitch and it is hiding the Team I use the most. I have to "show" it every day!!!

  3. Link from Planner app task to actual task in Teams

    The Planner app in Teams provides an overview of tasks assigned to a user in various Teams channels.
    Typically it would be useful to be allowed to navigate back to the actual task within Teams to review the task within the context of the channel/tab/etc.

  8. 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…

    Keyboard shortcuts for navigating unread messages and conversations and marking them read/unread. Slack has really good keyboard shortcuts for navigating between unread teams and conversations, and it's a big productivity-booster. Vy

  10. reset chat conversation/start new chat button

    It would be nice to have a way to 'reset/start new' chat conversation.
    It should not delete history ... just clear the screen so it is clear where the new conversation starts.

  13. searching refined

    make it so that the ability to search within teams is a little better. I do not see a search or any type of local search within a group. If I go to a group, I should be able to search within the group, no matter how many pages and tabs there are, to be able to find things within tabs in groups.

  15. 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?!

  17. RSS Connector name and Favicon added to title of post

    We have various suppliers RSS feeds going into a Channel for operations \ technical teams to be aware of outages of platforms. However, unlike webhooks these all get posted into the Channel with a title of RSS.

    It would be more useful if the name of the RSS feed, which you've got to add "Enter a name for your RSS connection." when you configure it would be used instead.

    It would also be great if for a Webhook or RSS feed, it pulled and used the websites Favicon.

  18. Create a "saved bookmarks" icon on the left along with Activities, etc.

    We use bookmarks a lot to make sure we don't miss stuff we want to follow up on. We can access all of our bookmarks under our profile, but it would be far more convenient if we could access it with one click. My suggestion is that there should be a bookmarks icon along the left bar where Activity, Teams, etc. are located.

  20. When making a chat window active, set cursor

    When a chat pop-up is clicked, opening Teams, the Cursor should default to being active. this saves the user from having to move the mouse down to the text box to then type.
