  1. 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!

  2. Keyboard shortcut to switch between cameras

    Ctrl-Shift-O toggles the video on and off. Ctrl-Shift-M mutes the microphone. But there is no shortcut to switch between multiple cameras. We have one camera aimed at a white board and another aimed at the person. Switching between the two cameras is essential. This can be done by mouse-clicking on the camera icon on the lower right hand corner of the Teams Desktop App once the Teams meeting is active.

  3. 'Fully' threaded conversations, not just reply-to-Topic

    While I know we can reply to the top-level topic we can't reply to a post replying to this topic.

    Currently I have to pull out each reply like this as a separate Topic which is cumbersome and loses the original context.

    I 'simply' want to Reply to any Posts in Teams, be that a top-level topic or a response to that Topic, so that I can have a fully threaded, contextual conversation.

  5. icon for channels

    Ability to add icons for channels. Currently only we are allowed to add icons for Teams. Would be great if we have the ability to customize the channels as well. It would make more sense if the channels keep growing and it would be really easy to identify the channels.

  6. Multi-window "pop outs" for calendar, teams, files in teams etc.

    The UI for managing multiple items across the Teams app is lacking at the moment.

    There is the inability to have multi-windows for the channels, calendars, teams etc which can make working on several documents or viewing several different items at once, difficult.

    It would be great if we could have "pop out" windows, that have been implemented for chats, across the other elements of teams.

  8. Stacking Chat Notifications

    This might be more windows UX but it would be nice if the notifications stacked for chats. I am part of an active group chat and I don't want to disable notifications completely but it is also distracting when there are notifications all up the side of my computer!

  9. Improve UI for threaded conversations

    I think that the threaded conversation view has a fundamental UI problem.

    At present, the text control at the bottom of the view will start a new conversation, and replying to an existing conversation requires a specific action.

    We have been trained by pretty much every other chat program in the world that the box at the bottom of the screen is for typing a reply to the current conversation. To change this behavior requires Teams users to un-learn a common behavior and re-learn it just for this program.

    Users spend most of their time using other programs. Conforming to…

  10. Include Drafts in 'My Activity'

    Currently there's no way to track reply/post/chat drafts.
    The 'My Activity' feed seems a natural place to put this.

  11. Quicker way to find contact and start conversation

    Starting new conversation with colleague via teams (4-6 seconds, 7+ steps):
    1. Mouse click on pinned MS Teams on taskbar
    2. Wait for 1-2 seconds for MS Teams window to open
    3. Mouse click on "Search"
    4. Enter contact name
    5. Mouse click or down+enter to open chat
    6. Mouse click/focus message field
    7.Type + enter, message sent

    Compared to Skype for business (1-3 seconds, 4 steps):
    1. Double click on taskbar Skype icon - window opens instantly
    2. Start typing contact name ("Search" is focused automatically)
    3. Press enter (first match chat window is opened, message field is focused)…

  12. Pop out any section of Teams

    Have parts of MS teams be able to pop out of Teams. This way you can work on one part of teams and you could have multiple chats going at the same time. This would be very much like being able to pop out emails from outlook and then go to tasks or calendar and be able to see everything at the same time.

  13. Group Teams

    Teams are getting a little too many. When can we group them based on teams or areas like app on an phone. It would be much easier to navigate.

  14. mutli teams window

    There has been talk of the ability to have multi window functionality. being able to have multiple teams chat windows open will help espeically when you are locked into a single screen share and then have to repeatedly navigate to the chat bar to have side conversations and click back in. currently very ineffeicient.

  15. Channel, with user group > Sub-channels, sub-user group

    As a user, I want to select a set of people from the primary channel and provide only them access rights into the sub-channel.

    Context
    I have Company X and I create a channel X. Under this company I could have Divisions e.g. Management, Finance, Engineering, Marketing, Sales, etc.

    Those divisions are categorized as sub-channels. Sub-channels
    are the divisions of the same company. For instance, when the sub-channel is defined as Sales, there could be 31/500 Account Managers from the full user group defined in the primary channel (Company X). Because specific topics and knowledge can sometimes be dedicated to…

  16. Add the option to disable message previews in the Favorites and Recent IM windows.

    In the Chat tab, my boss complains that he can't open Teams while in screen sharing applications (such as WebEx) because if he does then the last thing said to each of his contacts is visible and may compromise confidential info. He'd like the option to turn off the preview and only show the names of the people without any message preview.

  17. Multitasking tabs

    Add tabs to the top or bottom for switching between multiple documents that are open simultaneously. Add the ability to drag the tab out to an open window, so that we can see two documents side by side. The way IE or Chrome handles this is intuitive and effective.

    Currently, I'm stuck to working on one document at a time. This causes me to not use teams nearly as much since I cannot effectively multitask.

  19. Allows user to customize the color schema

  20. Show me the number of channel followers

    In Slack I can see the members of a channel, but I also know at a glance how many people are in the channel. With Teams I can see the team members but it is hard to get a quantity. Also, I don't know how to see who is following a given channel in the team. If I have a dead channel I want to know so I can remove it.
