  2. Teams desktop app is incredibly slow to start up

    I notice this particularly because I have to restart Teams a lot due to its poor handling of network changes/intermittent disconnection.

    Here's a scenario:

    - I need to quickly post a message to someone on Teams
    - Teams won't post it because it's disconnected and won't reconnect
    - I quit Teams
    - I restart Teams, and then I wait for a minute or two before I can post a message (not an exaggeration)

    Like most people on here, I'M BUSY, so I don't have the time for all this messing around. Teams needs to be faster, more reliable, and of…

  3. Performance

    Individual pages load slowly. For example, opening the planner app or the onenote app is sluggish. Opening a word or excel file is also slow. This is when I try to access it using the Teams App (thick client).

  4. 1. Allow us to add our "favourite" folder to the "Quick Access" column on the left.

    Like how the normal Shared Folder allows us to drag and drop our favorite folder to the left under "Quick Access", I feel we should have the same option here so it will be easier for us to access those folders that are always in use.

  5. Crash less.

    Unicode for the notifications, daily crash and restart. Meetings interface sucks. Generally poorly constructed and poorly implemented.

  8. Make it just work.

    Incredibly slow! Switching between tabs, chat rooms - 3 sec and more. If there is an active audio/video call - even slower. Memory consumption is also awful - 600+ Mb of RAM! For a chat? That's even not funny.

  9. PDF viewer/preview slow

    Opening a PDF located in the files tab in Teams is quite slow compared to opening the same document via the SharePoint Online interface. Please improve performance of the Teams file preview function.

  12. - Stop auto-adding every channel I visit to my favorites - Get rid of the giant clip art at the top of every, single, channel - Stop telling

    - Stop auto-adding every channel I visit to my favorites
    - Get rid of the giant clip art at the top of every, single, channel
    - Stop telling me to download the app
    - Put a count of unread messages on each team (instead of just making it bold)

  15. Low-latency text input for messages

    Text input is relatively slow compared to Windows-native text input boxes.

  17. 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…

  18. Teams Chat folder should not take up mailbox storage space or users should be able to archive it.

    We have users with F1 licensing which means they only have 2GB of storage space available. now that we've implemented Teams, users mailboxes are filling up....because of the hidden and inaccessible Teams Chat folder in Conversation History. If they try to use mailbox cleanup, this hidden folder doesn't show up as an option for them to clean up or archive this folder. It's not easy for admins to access it to clear it either. This is a problem.

  20. Performance Improvements

    Kaizala is one of the fastest apps for instant messing, outpacing even WhatsApp. It would be great if Teams chat worked as quickly. I also have performance problems when on Android, the teams app simply never recieved messages when the app is closed. It is allowed to work in the background, but still nothing.
