  2. Chat scroll bar

    The scroll bar in chat appears even when there is no need to scroll. Partially cut off and doesn't blend with theme after recent update. See screen shot.

  3. Easy on the fly meetings

    Currently I am only able to make an on the fly meeting with an external member of my project via scheduling a meeting for in a few min and inviting them. I would love the ability to have a instant call functionality where I enter as many internal and external email contacts and or phone numbers and then have the meeting invite sent out via email/call + given a link that lets me also dynamiaclly add people via posting to a channel in which all externals can join

  4. Interface and app are why people complain about Microsoft programs

    I think the format in which I have to submit an idea or rate an existing issue is enough of an example in itself about how poorly designed this is

    The delay in syncing i.e. Teams/Planner cards
    The fact I have the ability to receive an email for everything I don’t need and nothing I do unless the team members individually tag me in every card
    Chat notification emails are delayed by over 10 minutes so I’m not sure how efficient or helpful that is
    I literally can’t find anything easy unless there is constant activity within a Teams channel …

  6. Accessibility

    Hi Microsoft,

    I appreciate the effort that you put in this software, but it's just not as good as the Skype. I am saying this is because.


    1. The software itself is bulky, whereas chat tool should be light and sweet.

    2. Take too much screen space.

    3. It's not accessible as Skype used to be.

    4. Too much functionality which is killing the original motive of the application that is to chat.

    5. takes too much time to open.

    Thanks,
    Vivek

  7. Simple Mode (think Trillian).

    This is too bloated, and takes up way to much screen real estate. I have 4xPanels and Teams should take up less than 1/8 of a Panel size (24 inch LCD at 1080).

    Think small footprint like Trillian, and then add functionality like Slack. Efficient. Fast. Functional. DONE!

    Yes, Teams is HTML5 compatible so I can CTRL+Scroll to make it fit more in less, but it STILL overtakes the footprint that Skype resided in by more than 25% and more than 75% of Trillian.

    Please, reauthor this program or give us a SIMPLE mode?

  11. By changing Microsoft work culture to be more user centered instead of MS engineer-centered

    Azure and outlook show this more strongly than Teams, but the fundamental issue behind the countless design concerns is Microsoft’s design-by-engineers culture. I’ve never even seen the inside of a Microsoft office but can see this is the case by looking at their products. Microsoft leadership and engineers would gain a lot by allowing designers to build a more user-centered culture.

  12. Send alerts on Outlook

    To facilitate adoption of Teams, it would be useful if users would get alerted on Outlook if they have Teams activity (such as private messages).

  13. There are options that CONSTANTLY get in the way.

    I attached a screenshot. Can we please make it so that the 'Like', '...', and Bookmark icons move elsewhere so it doesn't cover the message if I'm trying to copy text on it? It gets agitating that I cannot copy text because those icons get in the way.

  15. Rich text editing makes @ commands awful

    The rich text editor should never work in real time, and @ commands should be left alone.

    If you type @channel it will be replaced by an almost illegibly distinct "General" or whatever word, with no # or anything to distinguish that it's a channel, that looks rather awful and confusing as it looks like text you wrote. Then if you backspace the chat gets bugged and you start typing in that colour...

    Rich text does not belong in chat, period. It may be good for dummies, but then only dummies will use it. If you want to make this…

  17. FIX THE SEND BEHAVIOR

    My team has had the problem of messages not being sent because messages are not sent on Enter . Posts with attachments should go out as soon as you hit send

  19. New name

  20. Give us the ability to create wireframes of the teams client (or parts of it) to show you what layouts work best for us.

    I look at the teams UI and I cannot read anything. When I say read, its not just a matter of font size or if I'm wearing glasses, I mean the navigation and organization of the communication points in the client makes it hard to quickly determine if some action on my part is necessary. Its also stupidly hard to locate the correct click points to compose a message to a specific party.

    Its not just these things, its many things, and its hard to convey with text or verbal. I say its hard because of the dearth of complaints…
