      • I need multiple tab on Teams

        When I open another sub-channels on teams, I need to choose "Open in new tab" to avoid to lose my previous search.

        ie : if I am on Teams > General > Files > sub folder 1 > sub folder 2 > file, I need to keep this path to open Teams > General > Files > subfolder n > file

        • Personal tools visible at all times

          Would it be possible to make the personal tools (Planner, Wiki, and other apps) visible at all times? Currently they are hidden behind the Three dots -menu and it's kind of frustrating to always have to click it open so you can access your Planner for instance.

          There is plenty of room to have them visible.

          • 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.

            • Make purchasing Audio Conferencing more easy to find & direct + Improve Navigation in General

              Having too difficult of a time trying to acquire Audio/Dial-in Conferencing through the admin portal. I clicked 2 links during my navigation, both stating in some way that I would be able to purchase the add-on through the link just to open some **** search window with no information on how to do so. Even if I put into the search what it is that I am trying to do I still come up with little-to-nothing in terms of what to do. I've been at this for 3 days now. The first day and a half was spent trying to…

                • Please add the functionality to "Paste Special"

                  When working on Teams, and also in Office 365, you can't "Paste special". This is super annoying, and is stopping a lot my colleagues from using teams. Which defeats the purpose of us paying for it.

                      • Eye strain caused by the themes - please let us turn off the `cards` or customise background colour

                        When I moved from Slack to Teams I seem to get more eye strain, and this results in headaches.

                        I can't quite peg it down exactly, but I think it's the choice of colours, particularly the grey background and the `card` layout.

                        The Dark theme is not much better.

                        In contrast, the much cleaner interface of slack does away with all unnecessary embellishments, so my eyes focus immediately on the messages.

                        This places an un-necessary cognitive load on my brain as it has to filter out this information before I get to reading.

                        The whole reason Google won out over…

                            Please have the iOS version come choser to the desktop version.

                            That would grately improve the mobility and productivity. Perhaps that’s only “doable” on the iPad version but still that would go a long way.

                            • 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.

                                      In dark mode (Windows), it's not always obvious by coloring who has replied to a chat. Use a light gray instead for replies?

                                      The difference between active replies and those already seen is too slight for myself and probably most people.

                                        • 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.
