  1. network bandwidth

    Looking at UserVoice there are a few requests dealing with network utilization. Microsoft provided guidance on network bandwidth requirements for media traffic with Skype(https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/skypeforbusiness/plan-your-deployment/network-requirements/network-requirements). This helps provide large enteprise customers guidance during architectural decisions as well as assist with right sizing their current audio/video usage. This is missing for Team and is needed to assist customers sizing their environment correctly as well as assist with future planning. This can help decrease some of the network bandwidth asks as customers will have better guidance on what is expected with Teams over SfB

  2. 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

  3. 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

  4. Teams should respect the Display scale of the display it is on, not only of Main screen (Windows)

    Running Windows on a Retina MacBook with an external monitor I have the scale of the retina display set to 175% and the external (Main display) to 100%.

    Now if the main screen (seemingly only on boot counts) is the external one, the teams interface is so small that it is basically illegible. If the external monitor is disconnected while booting the teams UI is normal on the Retina display, but gigantic on the external one, when connected. Other apps seem to handle this, it would be nice if Teams could, too!

  6. Adding attachments is super slow, it really need speedup

    Addign attachments is very slow process. Something minuscule like 50kb sile adding takes 5-10 sec. Lager files naturally longer. It should be instantaneous.

    And why I have to wait for the upload at first place before I can send an message. It should be background process.

  7. Assignments should be able to be sent back to students so they can resubmit either so they can act on feedback or if their work is not good

    All work entered needs to ha e feedback for students but this is not much good if the student can't have the chance to act on the feedback and improve or redraft work.
    A button to send work back to students or just to allow more files to. We submitted would be great

  8. Reliability sucks compared to Slack

    Android version so often goes offline. While other chat apps work just fine. Web app is so-so... when the desktop app doesn't make sense to install or you can't. Desktop app also is not great.. sending a file causes the UI to just freeze for a while.

  9. video calls

    When I do the video calls, the video of other person, shared screen eveything shows up in a single monitor. It should be allowed to see the video and screen sharing in two different monitors, like Skype. This is one of most feature I do not like it at all.

  10. Improve Stability and Performance of Video Calls

    The performance of Teams on video calls is really bad. It slows up, becomes unresponsive and I've had 2 blue screen of deaths (one from 5 minutes ago attached).

    Myself and 3 others have been using Teams for the last few months and all of us are experiencing similar issues on video calls. It seems to be worst on 1 on 1 video calls versus group calls.

    Once a video call is started, trying to use the buttons in Teams to share your screen or change your device settings are also very slow to respond. The problems may be worst…

  11. 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.

  13. Improve copying data from Teams

    Copying data out of teams works very poorly. As soon as I mouse over a short piece of text, like an ID number, it changes to three ellipses, with the ribbon and thumb. I can no longer select the text I want with my mouse! This is very poor design.

  16. Please get rid of the bar at the top of my screen when I screen share.

    The bar sits directly over the browser tabs during a screen share. It's infuriating. Or at least allow us to move the bar somewhere less inconvenient. Thanks.

  17. not responding

    Since today, so basically the first work day after a couple of updates on Friday, Teams often "hangs" after I click in it. It seems to happen most often if I go back to it after not having focused to screen for a while or if I go into a new (large) chat.

    Did something change in this respect?

  19. why can't i save a pdf to Teams

    PDF files cannot be saved to Teams which is a huge problem for my area of work. I manage an accounting department and my staff and I work with hundreds of pdf files. This is an obvious flaw in Teams and should be easily rectified. Another problem is not being able to open a PDF file in Adobe Pro while in Teams.
