  1. Additional Streaming Layouts for Team Live Events

    currently you can choose between two streaming layouts (e.g. full screen or screen beside cam).
    There would be so many cool other layout options to improve live events e.g.:
    - Two speaker side by side (split screen)
    - presentation on the left but two speaker on the right
    - 4 speaker on screen
    - large cam, small screen sharing content

    Whatever the ideas are endless, but currently this is really limiting some streaming experience, for example if you have two speakers debating something I want to show both, but I can't.

  2. Branding Feature

    Currently, Teams displays org name on top right if user is part of more than one tenant. Ability to add a company logo on the top similar to Office 365 suite bar will make more distinctive. Also organizations also have guest users using Teams for collaboration. Having this one or two options for branding will certainly help in getting guest users/ customer confidence.

  3. background color ( example pale yellow ) for conversations that has not been sent

    This should be screened by accessibility, but somehow change the back ground or add something visually significant on conversation text that has not yet been sent.

    Too many time I have text sitting after I was done, waiting to be sent, and people waiting for my part of the conversation.

  4. Expand theming functionality

    Expand the theming capabilities.

    Currently we can just use preset themes, and even then we're limited to only 3: light, dark, dark high-contrast.

    One of my personal pet peeves why I'm leaning towards Slack over Teams is because Slack has a plethora of themes + enables me to create my own custom color scheme to fit my liking. Through the same functionality Slack also helps any visually impaired user to adjust their view to fit their needs while Teams disregards this completely by only allowing use of preset themes that cannot be modified (on top of being limited only to…

  5. Scrolling back through messages is difficult - it's not easy to see when the messages you're viewing were from

    At the moment, the day marker, e.g."yesterday" title is quite small, and so when I'm trying to scroll through multiple messages to find things from a specific day it's quite difficult. It'd be great to have something that pops up and tells you which day's messages you're looking at, or just something that makes it more obvious (especially when you're scrolling quite quickly)

  6. Add Email Groups to Favorites

    In the Chat section, under Favorites/Contacts, I should be able to add an entire email group (From O365, Azure, etc) as a Group.

    Once the group is added, it would then list the contacts of that group.

    Currently you have to create a Group for that group and add each individual manually.

  7. Environment dependent characters won’t be properly shown

    When you type environment dependent Japanese character like ”令和” (reiwa), it’s shown as a square and won’t be converted properly.

  8. Ability to Open a Second Window

    Often times I am using information from one team channel to update information in another. The inability to open a second Teams window makes this difficult. The ability to open a Team or Channel in a new window would be a great addition.

  10. Themes

    Why not having the Skype Theme Color function instead of this ugle purple design.
    More flexible solution here is needed.

  11. Don’t show the current sign-in account automatically in the Teams desktop app

    I would like to hide or change the sign-in account currently shown in the credential prompt when signing in to the Teams desktop app, because by default, the Windows credential will be shown automatically.

  12. Drag and drop files to the chat

    It will be more comfortable drop files to whole chat's window (like Slack, Telegram). Now you need to move the file to the text field in the bottom.

  13. Just make it reliable and give me audible alerts on my PC

    I use a PC. Some colleagues use a Mac.

    (1) Often the status of a Mac is not shown correctly to a PC user and visa versa. Just make it work reliably. Eg, a colleague is showing on my screen as unavailable yet shows as available on his.

    (2) I can get an alert on my Apple phone and Apple Watch but not on my PC why! I shouldn't have to rely on my Apple Watch to know I have a new chat. This is terrible.

    (3) When I do a meeting via Teams, allow me to give a phone…

  14. Customize Status List that will be available all the time.

    Under status, would like to be able to add customized status that would remain where I could choose it periodically.

  15. Pinned contacts sorting

    I'd love the ability to sort my pinned contacts by most contacted, first/last name, or other parameters. It becomes too jumbled and doesn't have any convention to sort them now which becomes confusing quickly.

  16. Background colors for contacts in contact list, groups, channels, use screen more efficiently

    Hi,
    could you allow set different colors for persons in contact list, teams? It will significantly simplify finding needed contact. Now the whole list is looks solid and you need to read every line to find needed person. It will be much easier to find and navigate if you mark person in contact list with some specific background.
    Why panel with messages is used so not rational? Why text cant be justified by full available width? There a lot of empty area. Especially in full screen. And padding between messages can be decreased as well. (my screen 1920x1200).

    Thank you! …

  17. Replying vs New Message Confusion

    Replying vs New Message

    Many times throughout the day, members of our team either don't scroll down to see a reply button or just outright confuse the new message input field with the reply button and end up replying to a message and making a new thread. This has become increasing more frustrating and has created a bit of chaos in how our threads are organized. I highly recommend updating the UI to be more like slack in that way or pull out the new message input and make it into a fab button to prevent the confusion.

  18. Change cancel meeting confirmation options

    The cancel meeting confirmation popup gives two options: Cancel and OK. It's confusing to see Cancel here because it seems like I should Cancel to confirm.

  20. See More Link: Too hard to see!

    The "See More" link should be a solid bar or something so it stands out more. Often times people miss additional content because this link is too hard to see.
