  1. Chat Notifications

    Currently, the only types of chat notifications available are email, banner or off. Can you fix it to where the chat will show the bubble if you receive a message, without the banner coming out. I don't want to have to read the banner every time someone IMs me, but I'd like to know I have an unread chat, by some kind of flashing notification, similar to what Skype for Business uses.

  2. 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.

  5. Make the 'message delivered' icon green in chats

    The icon for delivered messages looks like a clock now, which indicates it is not yet delivered. To make more clear a message is delivered, make it green, or remove the circle on the check mark.

  6. 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.

  8. 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...

  9. Provide keyboard shortcut to open the captioning settings pane

    Currently the only way to toggle the closed captions view as well as manage your settings is to mouse or tab to the icon. Providing simple keyboard shortcuts will enable the user to quickly adjust to suit their needs.

  12. 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?

  13. 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.

  14. "multi-tab" feature to switch between files or view 2+ files at the same time.

    I would really like a "multi-tab" feature to quickly switch between files or refer to two files on different tabs at once.

    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

  17. Enable bookmarks in PDF tab, bookmarks created in Adobe Reader etc. do not seem to show in teams PDF view tab

    When sharing PDF files as on-screen documents in Teams (using the PDF viewer tab), bookmarks cannot be selected even though they are in the selected file. Reference documents such as policies benefit significantly from bookmark navigation so it is bizarre it is absent.

  18. Auto Spellcheck should operate like Word, Outlook, etc.

    I can't believe this isn't posted.

    If Teams is intended to be a primary project communication platform, this NEEDS to be addressed. It is good at recognizing a misspelled words, but the next step is where it fails miserably. I'll get a short list or a list of 20 options, or it just face-plants. The word "Didnt" without the apostrophe, only suggests, "Diderot". However, lowercase "didnt" will suggest the correct punctuation. Whaaat?! Oh, and the biggie: why cant i add a word to a Dictionary. We all work with uniques terms, words and names, that are constantly being asked to…

  19. 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.

  20. 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!!!
