  1. More than 15 pinned conversations

    Why limit it to 15 pinned conversations? are we in the 80's? we should be able to pin any number of conversations. Now, I can't find with my team.

    Teams is supposed to make our life better not hate the product.

    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.

  4. Place Saved Conversations Top Left Navigation

    "Saved" conversations should appear under "Activity" or somewhere else in the left bar navigation as shown in the screenshot below.

    Currently "Saved" appears in the sub menu of my profile

  5. 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.

  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/.

  9. 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.

  11. Usage of Teams once, breaks ability to use Skype

    Dear Admins, please get on the same page as your design teams and support staff, they’re giving users contradicting information.

    I just had a conversation with Microsoft Support about the ability for a Skype user to talk to a Teams user…basically at this time there is no such thing as interoperability despite their documentation regarding coexistence modes.

    The very minute a user even tries Teams just once…they break the ability to use Skype to talk to you if you’re using Teams. Apparently it’s been in this broken state for months and is “by design.”

    Here’s the quote from the rep,…

  13. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. Personal workspace along with Teams

    I think it would be great to have a personal workspace that lives along side your Teams. This would give you a similar toolkit as a Team with the conversation element pulled out. You would have quick access to your files (OD4B), OneNote, important stuff, etc. via tabs and then could use

    I suppose this would just be the merging of the chat and files tab into a space that would also give you the ability to use tabs and connectors.

    Might need some workshopping, but I think this could be a powerful way to get people spending a lot…

  18. 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.
