    Thank you for your continued feedback. We are continuously improving the clients to use less memory and RAM.

    The upgrade to Electron 10 has rolled out fully to the public at this point. Telemetry and testing has shown that this is helping to improve memory performance on the client.

    We will continue to work on improvements, and will share more updates as they become available.

    For more details on how Teams currently uses memory, please visit https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-memory-usage-perf.

  2. Poor performance on MacOS

    I can't use teams with out it lagging severely. When I go and look at the processes running, It always looks like the 'helper' is taking up crazy amounts of CPU and it lags out the application to the point of it almost being unusable.

    I've tried closing the application, rebooting, re-installing, checking for updates, etc.. nothing works.

    I'm on macOS Mojave 10.14.2

    Thank you for your feedback. We are continually looking to bring performance boosts to the Mac Client, including improvements with Electron 10 that are releasing. We are also aggressively addressing other areas of performance around the Mac client

  3. Poor performance on Windows

    The system takes a lot of the computer resources and slows down the overall performance of the pc

    We are happy to share that Electron 10 is rolling out to the public ring now, so you should notice improvements. We expect overall performance of Teams to improve even further with upcoming fixes around the calling and meeting features We will share another update as soon as we are able to.

  4. High CPU/GPU/Power usage

    For some reason the latest update has Teams using between 8% and 25% CPU idling, doing nothing. There is an issue with this update.

  5. Reliability issues: crashing, hanging, freezing

    Literally Teams will crash 5 or 6 times a day. Hugely annoying and unproductive.

    Feature teams have been finding unique areas of improvement around crashes/hangs/lock ups of the client, and have been making small improvements through both proactive and reactive findings to help around reliability regressions. If you happen to see any unique issues, please let us know and we will continue to share updates as they become available.

  6. Slow app launch

    Right now it simply loads too slowly, and it has that massive in-your-face splash screen while doing it.

    Application load time is something we are continuously working to improve, and the team is hard at work on fixes. We have validated a recent regression in application launch time that will be fixed in the coming weeks.

  7. Network reliability issues

  8. scroll performance - messages are grey boxes before rendering

    scroll lag : scrolling performance (i.e. to previous messages in a chat/channel) is much worse than expected - messages don't render for a noticeable period of time

  9. Switch between accounts

    Give teams the ability to switch between accounts. I have to log in and out everytime I want to change accounts that represent different companies. Also, if it was more integrated with outlook, it would make my life better.

  10. Ability to shrink the search bar.

    The search bar spans a large area of the top bar. It's very difficult to move the Teams window around my desktop because we can't click and drag

  11. Make it faster

    Teams app on win 10 is frustratingly slow to close after clicking red x. Taskbar lights up with new message but shows name of last conversation partner not new one. Opening up to see a new message starts you where you left off instead of new message. Badges on phone app don’t go away if I check on messages using Windows app. Nowhere near as snappy as like, AIM back in the day

  13. Add ability to use non-standard fonts e.g. in PowerPoint & Word in Teams editor

    We use two specific fonts that represent our company's brand in all presentations wherever possible ..... but currently, for shared documents that we would LIKE to work on in Teams, we can't, as the fonts are not recognised when worked on in Teams editor for PowerPoint and Word etc. As a result, we have taken to working offline again !! This is adding a LOT of extra work and inconvenience and goes against the essence of why we have Teams in the first place! Please, Microsoft, add the ability for users (and organisations) to upload and use their own (non-standard)…

  15. Battery usage on Windows 10

    There are many comments and ideas about battery usage on IOS and Android but I've noticed that the battery usage on my laptop has increased somewhat.

    When I go to Start > Settings > System > Battery > 'See which apps are affecting your battery life' and change period to 1 week i can see that Microsoft Teams is using 31% of battery. Second place is Outlook with 14% so its definitely an issue.

    Interestingly, i use Outlook all day, every day heavily and its only using that much battery. Teams is always in my sys stray and i rarely…

  17. Microsoft Teams is using a lot of data, it's data usage is too high, Microsoft Teams can get better with low data usage in long meeting.

    Microsoft Teams is using a lot of data in a short period of time, it's data usage is too high, Microsoft Teams can get better with low data usage in long meeting.

  18. Improve Audio Quality in Teams Meetings and Video Calls

    I get several complaints on the audio quality within a teams meeting or video call. When more than one person speaks, it gets glitchy audio sound and cancels out both speakers (or multiple speakers) intermittently. My employees are complaining so much about the choppy quality of the audio, they're going back to Zoom.us. Please help so I don't have to manage multiple platforms!

  19. Extend assignment deadline for individual students

    Sometimes when an assignment is set with a deadline, I don't want to allow late turn ins for all students, but may need to give an extension to an individual student. It would be really useful to be able to do this without having to make it possible for the rest of the class to also turn in late.

  20. Preference to open linked docs in local/desktop version of excel/word/onenote - and not always Office Online

    We use OneNote and Excel quite extensively. We share files via Team channels all the time. But opening them in Office Online is very very slow. We want to open the document in the desktop versions of Excel and OneNote as a first choice.
