  3. Integrate Teams into Outlook

    It would be great if u could integrate teams into outlook. i mean the whole functionality of the 'teams app' could be a 'tab' in outlook.

  5. 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,…

  6. 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…

  7. Move meeting attendee pictures/videos to the top of the UI

    Because most cameras are located at the top of a laptop screen or a webcam sitting on top of a monitor, by moving the attendee pictures/videos to the top, your line of sight is closer to looking in the camera than when you are looking down at the bottom of the screen, giving a more natural appearance to the interaction.

  8. Lite UI mode for Teams

    It would be great if Teams had a lite UI Mode where all (most of) the beauty is switched off to favor performance and minimize resource needs.

    The current Teams App on Windows 10 needs a lot of performance to render and to run in general. I need my CPU and my RAM for my development work! Not to run a stupid chat client!
    Skype for Business was much reasonable in its resource needs therefore I favor still that utility instead of Teams!

  10. Allow me to change Group Chat icons

    Right now we have a bunch of Group and once you start adding names to it, they are pretty hard to identify which one is which. If I could change the Group Chat icon, it will be easier for me to identify this.

  13. Color code team/group chat windows so we can easily differentiate

    It's very difficult to tell if I'm replying to someone as part of a particular conversation in a group chat or directly to them in a private one. My teammates have the same issue, and it's led to us inadvertantly typing messages in the group chat that we didn't want some team members to see. One possible way to remedy this would be to use different background colors for group chats compared to private ones

  15. Video gallery options

    When using Skype for Business, participants were able to choose between "gallery view" or having in full-screen the participan that is talking at each moment

    I'm not able to find that option in Teams, only gallery view or pinning manually one of the video signals as main and full-screen.

    is this planned?

  16. Ability to undock the "Chat" function in the Teams window

    Would like to see the ability to undock the "Chat" function in the Teams window - like the Skype for Business interface, so that I can work in "Teams" and view documents while answering questions for folks. Too often, someone asks me a question, to answer it I have to leave the chat and find the document and then go back to the chat and then re-find the document. I also may want the chat up and visible while I'm working in other applications without wanting the heavier/larger total Teams UI on top.

  17. Open Chat windows separately

    Open Chat windows separately. This is very poor implementation of chat in MS TEAMS, as all proper communication tools that exist in the market have this feature. It allows for multiple chats to be viewed simultaneously. When is MS TEAMS dev team going to fix this glaring gap?

  18. Refresh Button for Teams

    I am using the Windows Team application and sometimes I can't tell if I am looking at the offline information or online information until I click on several tabs and channel to prompt me to sign in. Please create a refresh button so we can make sure we are logged in.

  19. Copy paste markdown text should do proper formatting

    Although markdown works as you type things in by hand, it should also format text that is pasted into Teams.

    We often have markdown docs or other existing assets that we're discussing, and being able to copy-paste markdown into Teams would help make that process a lot easier than retyping everything by hand!

  20. Intergrate a dashboard into Teams to display live queue stats, pstn stats, and reports

    Everyone should be smashing "vote" on this.

    It would be nice if there was an app button on the left called Dashboard that works similar to Azure's dashboard where you can customize the widgets. It would be nice if this dashboard could render live call queue stats, average wait times, agents signed in, which agents are talking, standard call center reporting stuff, teams sign-ins, PSTN reports, and various teams chat reporting.

    This should have role-based permission access.

    The live queue statistics alone would be a significant added value.

    Reporting could leverage Power BI in some fashion.
    Creating custom reports.

    Thank…
