  1. Wiki list layout

    In Teams, click Wiki, then the link to list all pages. A column pops out, listing all the pages.

    The background color of this column is the same as the border around the text of a wiki page. And it has no border. Therefore, it looks like the page is glitched.

    Solution: Add a thin border around the wiki page list when it pops out.

    • UI Stutter

      While typing a notification seems to lock up the UI. After that it puts the cursor at the beginning of the chat input field and inserts whatever I was typing while the notification locked up the UI. PLEASE FIX THIS!

        • Enable uninstalling One Noted directly, from the Send Note window

          I had to waste more than an hour to make Office technician remove One Note from my PC. It would be better if I could do it directly, from the place where it bothers me.

          • It would be nice to be able to have all my teams "spaces" exposed rather than having it be only a single team's areas details

            In the Team "tab", you can see a list of all teams you are in. However, one can only open a single team at a time. That is if I have three teams and a number of "topics" under each team, I can only see the "topics" of one team at a time. I would like to be able to EXPAND ALL so I can see all the topics of all my teams. This way I can visually see any topics with unread messages instead of having to individually expand each team one at a time.

            • Add Powerpoint normal view

              When opening a Powerpoint file in a Teams file list, the file is in presentation view only. What I miss is the list of slides on the left hand side. I need to "EDIT" to get that. But that includes the risk of changing something unintentionally.

              • Transparent UI

                Add transparent UI option...as the same available in hangout app for windows. A great feature to use.

                  • Better Separate Voting and Commenting in Polly Polls

                    On the Teams site I'm using, a Polly Poll was implemented. REPLY is used as a voting mechanism, which makes it difficult to comment. Every attempt to comment causes Polly to generate a reply "~that wasn't a proper vote." Polly should allow both voting and commenting but have a good way to keep them separate and not collide with each other.

                      • It should look and work like Atlassian's Confluence

                        Take a look at how Confluence is structured. Spaces, pages in hierarchy, comments in line and as a separate section. Links and formatting on-page. Navigation and UX in MS Teams is very frustrating compared to using Confluence.

                          • Continue to show tabs in the top when 'Expand tab' is clicked.

                            Currently, when you click 'Expand tab' the left side-bar gets minimized, but you also lose all ability to navigate between different tabs in a Team channel.

                            It would be great to have the tabs still be visible (even if they're smaller) so that you can jump between full-screen tabs as needed.

                              • Show view after switching back between Tabs (e.g. Sharepoint files and MS Planner Tab)

                                Inside MS Teams Desktop App.
                                I open on a MS Planner board a card. Then I switch (inside MS Teams) to "Files" (SharePoint), copy a file link and switch back to MS Planner Tab.
                                Then I have to re-open my card to put in my file link.

                                Expected beahviour:
                                The card is still open when I switched back to MS Planner.

                                • Include Planner as a top-level menu tab

                                  Problem: I frequently Chat in the desktop Teams app about tasks in Planner. Unfortunately, I can't have both panes open at the same time (also suggested as an idea), so I switch back and forth to refer to a task and chat about it. I have never personally used the meetings, files, or store tabs.

                                  Why it's a problem: The link to Planner within the Teams app is hidden inside a hamburger menu, requiring an extra tap to change panes.

                                  Idea: I would like to add to the top level menu bar on the left or change which tabs show…

                                    • Support full text formatting to iOS app

                                      When composing a message in the iOS app, there is no way to format text as a quote. And, when viewing a comment that contains a quote, the formatting looks weird.

                                        Support @ mentions for meetings scheduled withing Teams so invitees get toaster notifications for meetings just like Outlook provides

                                        Using @ mentions can get the attention of my team because they heavily rely on toaster messages for handling meetings due to all the "noise" in our organization's email and chat channels.
