  1. No link destination preview

    When hovering over a hyperlink, there is no indication of where the link is going. This means that the user has to copy the link and paste it into a text editor to see where it's going without opening it in a browser.

  2. Ellipses option on every post to add thread as a link on a wiki

    One difficulty we are having is getting back to past chat threads that are important to our channel...at the moment the choice we have is to endlessly scroll or search.

    The text messaging we do in our personal lives really doesn't have that much of a need to scroll back to earlier messages. But in the enterprise we are working on activities over time, and may need to visit a thread from a couple of weeks ago to continue working on it

    It would be good if an ellipses on a post would have a selection to add it to…

  3. Don't auto fly-out the sidebar if application isn't focused

    The Teams desktop window's hidden side bar auto-opens at inappropriate times. When I'm not using the Team's window (not focused) but my mouse pointer passes over it the side bar flies open and then immediately closes as the pointer is no longer over the window. The effect is a sort of flicker if your pointer is moving quickly.

    The effect is very distracting as I'm interacting with multiple applications and Teams happens to be between them. I like to keep the window visible and positioned in a "handy" area so see what's going on and quickly interact with the team,…

  4. Show Team name on Label if Channel is "General" in all areas including "My Activity"

    This isnt limited to My Acitivities area but its a start, ANYWHERE the channel name label is "General" you really should swap out for the team name. In the screenshot you can see just how useless knowing it was posted to General is. Think about being a member of many teams and posting in general in all of those areas. Think about even if I am posting to just a single team not knowing which team.

    Simple change but a functional one. Mobile clients seem to already do this btw. As a Windows Admin I am never happy to see…

  6. always on top

    There should be a "pinning" option for pop-out windows: I would like to click on a button, the window should be on top always. That should be an option! Not all windows should be on top automatically!

  7. Allow video and participant list to be seen while screensharing

    When I screenshare, I lose the ability to see other's videos and the participant list. As a facilitator, this makes it challenging to know how to interact with my audience. For example, I can't see if a participant joins late. Check out zoom who seems to have solved this.

  8. Show seen and delivered as 2 separate icons on same chat

    Display the delivered and seen icons at the same time. Therefore you can see the last message seen which could be different to the last message delivered

  9. Move attendee video windows to top

    Move the attendee video bar to the top of the meeting screen. Most web cameras are located at the top of the screen making it seem like the user is actually looking at the group when trying to talk to the attendees.

  11. Why is there a volume slider for a live event but not for a regular conference call?

    Why isn't there a volume slider at the bottom of a conference call, just like there is for a live event. Why don't we have this option?

    The volume on my computer is set to the level I would listen to a song I like, not to the level I would normally listen to an audio voice. As such, I use the volume slider in apps to raise/lower the volume as needed.

    I don't understand why this feature isn't present in an easy-to-access way for Teams conference calls.

  12. To have VR Team Room Meeting

    It will be amazing to have VR meeting in Teams. Since COVID-19, there are many requirement for company to arrange virtual conference, gathering where it will be amazing to have it virtually using Microsoft Teams. We can have virtual environment (not only background) and avatar. And as arranger we can have virtual studio to drag and drop environment like mine-craft game using image or custom design room items/blocks.

  15. Move "start a new conversation" to top

    Many users make a mistake: instead of answering a thread they start a new conversation.

    Please, move the edit box "start a new conversation" to top and leave the replay to thread on the bottom.

    An alternative is to change color from "start" and "answer" or making the "start a new conversation" different in any manner.

  16. Give option to hide/unhide and delete last chat like skype

    There should be option to delete the chat from the screen or hide/unhide the chat. this will be very helpful like skype.
    Sometimes it gives sensitive information when you are sharing the screen. Also, there should be option to open new chat when you are talking to same person. You can correlate the same with skype.

  18. Email Response via Teams Chat to Decrease Email Use

    TLDR: To reduce emails we need a way to appropriately respond to emails via chat. Chat should indicate response is related to email using subject line indicator e.g. "Response to email: [subject line] - [chat answer]" followed by continued chat

    There is an option to reply to an email via Teams chat from the email sender. Previously this option worked through Skype and when selected and a chat window with that individual wasn't already open, a new window opened and indicated in some way that the skype chat was responding to the email (perhaps indicating the email subject line?).

    Unfortunately…

  20. Shift the "Start a new conversation." box to the left to offset it from the Reply box on threads.

    The "Reply" box for a thread in a channel is indented the same as the conversation above it which makes sense.
    However, the "Start a new conversation." box is also indented at the same position, which makes it very confusing for users and makes them think they are replying to a thread when they are actually starting a new conversation.
    It would help the User Experience if the new conversation box was left justified with the user icon of the threads above it. (i.e. moved left about a half inch on my monitor.)
    Having it offset would be a stronger…
