  1. Answering button blends in too much

    Answering button blends in too much, the decline button is much more appealing to click when there is an incoming call. A green answer button would have been much better from a design perspective. Green answering buttons are consistent, familiar and rich in contrast.

  3. Remove the Activity feed

    The Activity feed seems redundant and unnecessary, leading to confusion. Instead, just show an icon on the tab that there is activity on, and give a clear path of icons showing where the notification is.

  4. Disable screen capture

    Prohibit attendees from taking print screens / screen grabs of what is being presented in Microsoft Teams (similar to how you can't take a screen shot of a rights protected email - the screen goes black).

  5. "Your message is too long. Please shorten it before sending"

    Who are you to decide how long my messages should be? If I want to post a long stack trace, I should be able to do it.

  6. Advance Whiteboard Features

    Advance whiteboard features would add massive value to remote teams like icon & photo finder, wireframes templates, idea voting,web page capture or via URL, prebuilt templates (eg.Strategy, Agile, ideation, mind maps, sixsigma tools...)... A good inspiration can be found in Realtimeboard or Mural.

    We are working on improving the Microsoft Whiteboard in Teams to include new features including sticky notes, pen and ink, and drag and drop capabilities. These features will enable team members who don’t have access to a touchscreen or Surface Hub to participate in whiteboarding sessions during Teams meetings. You can read more details here: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/blog/2020/07/08/reimagining-virtual-collaboration-future-work-learning/.

  7. Make plain text the default paste option

    Ctrl+Shift+V for paste as plain text is not discoverable (I only found it after coming here and searching for suggestions to upvote to add support for pasting in plain text).

    For an instant messenger, plain text really should be the default paste option--there are many of the "paste as plain text" suggestions in which others have commented to this effect.

    This suggestion is to:
    1. Make pasting in plain text the default (Ctrl + V) option.
    2. Add context menu option(s) (similar to in MS Word) for other paste options (currently, I believe this would be one option to include…

  8. Ability to add (copy/paste) a list of people to meeting

    In outlook I'm able to copy-paste meeting participants from one meeting to another. In Teams I have to add them all manually. It's not convenient, could you please fix it somehow?

  10. Place Saved Conversations Top Left Navigation

  13. possibility to open teams on Multiple windows (especially when using multiple screens)

    Hi team,

    As a Ms teams professional user (especially if using multiple screens), i'd like to have the possibility to open different features on different windows so i can multitask simple way using the ALT+TAB feature for example.

    Ex:
    1. Chatting with a colleague and need to copy/past an information from another chat without losing the focus on the conversation
    2. i am on a meeting, and i want to let it open on a different screen and open a chat (or simply the calendar view to see next meetings)
    3... etc etc...

  15. Need ability to sort team members by FIRST name, not last.

    Please allow us, when viewing members of a team, to sort the list of team members using FIRST NAME as the sort criteria, rather than last name.

    Attached a screenshot of the view I'm referring to. I don't know everyone's last names right off the top of my head. It's very confusing trying to make heads or tails of this list when sorted by last name.

  17. Make the accept call button GREEN

    I would like to see the answer call button for call be changed to green. This would highlight the action similar to the hang up button being red.

  18. It's Microsoft Windows - so, could we have multiple windows?

    Please? It can't be hard to have multiple windows, since it's possible to access the same Teams account from multiple computers at the same time.

  20. Improve reply to channel and reply to thread usability

    People accidentally reply to channel when they should be replying to a thread. This makes the channel a mess. Improve the usability aspect of this making it more intuitive to reply to the thread one is reading right now!
