  1. Chat heads

    Can you make a chat head feature like what we have in Facebook? It would be easier to go back and forth with your chat messages while you are doing something on other areas of MS teams (i.e. channels).

    We are looking into having multiple windows for Teams.

    And thank you for the interesting idea!

  2. Chat messages must show up in Activity > feed

    I typically have the "Activity" tab open so I can quickly glance at the barrage of messages exchanged throughout the workday, and peruse the ones that I want in detail by clicking on a message in the Feed. However, chats do not show up in this feed, requiring me to go over to the "Chat" tab instead. It would be nice for all messages to show up in Activity/Feed.

  3. Ability to order the channels within a team...

    Unless I just can't find it:) The channels order by creation. Would love to be able to reorder them by dragging them.

  4. Show Teams with external users in a different colour scheme

    It would be good to have Teams with external users (guests) show up in a different colour scheme so that users are aware about internal/external groups at a glance. It will also help if there is a feature akin to Outlook Mail Tips which will indicate that content being shared in such Teams is visible to external users.

  5. background color

    Allow to customize background color for each chat person.

    There have been too many conversation posting to the wrong chat window (group chat and individual chat with same people in it)

    I want to make it very obvious that I am in a group chat by changing background color.

  6. Chat / Contacts List Dropdown menu

    I had found the Contacts View, ... then you went and changed it to hide the word Contacts under a Drop down menu that says Chat... Took me 10 minutes to realize you didnt take away the Contacts List, but rather just hid it with non-intuitive UI. revert back to how you had them side by side before... or make Contacts it's own Tab... you should be able to POP OUT Contacts & Chats , to make it look like a small Skype window for people who liked it like that.

  7. Display 360 degree image/video and stream via 360 capture in Teams

    Whether it's meetings or live streaming camera options, 360 degree images and videos should be supported in Teams (as you know, Facebook provides a viewer).

  8. Make it like Slack. Don’t buy Slack though.

    Teams is mostly pretty lame. Slack is way better. Just make it like Slack. But don’t buy Slack, y’all would probably ruin or kill it like you did the Sunrise calendar app 💔.

  9. Split Screens, Multitasking

    It could be interesting to review the user interface to allow slit screens for different part of the application.
    For example, having part of the UI displaying the chat window, another part allowing to go into a "channel discussion" while in the main snippet, looking at a document. Anything that could make multitasking easier.
    A little like you are doing for the video conference (when minimized while working on the app), but more at large for all functionalities.

  10. CSS Themes

    Something that has not often been Microsoft's strong suit is a bit of a killer when it comes to teams:

    Please enable custom stylesheets for scripting the user interface layout. I'm unsure what UI engine Teams is built on but having the ability to create themes via CSS stylesheets would be a huge win.

    A successful solution would have:

    A class reference for the UI elements on Teams
    Full CSS3 support
    Ability to Save/Import/Export and Share themes

  11. Remember pop-out meeting/call window size and position between meetings

    Every time I join a meeting (using the new experience), the meeting window opens in pretty much the center of my screen and is almost the full size of my screen. Then, every time, I move the window to the top-right of my screen and reduce its size to the minimum allowed, so I can keep the mute and end call buttons easily accessible while I do other work and so it doesn't take up as much of my screen when it is in the foreground.

    It would be nice if the meeting window position and size were remembered between…

  12. Open a thread, replying... too confusing.

    current typing design in team(group) chat has two function;

    1.open thread
    2. reply to a tread

    currently it is too confusing if someone is to start a chat.
    So my team members make mistake in this way very frequently;

    Open a thread, enter
    Then open another thread, enter(even if they wanted to reply to the thread that they have just opened)

    Eventually, rather than having one thread and one reply to add comment, we have two separated thread..

    This happens a lot... I mean, almost everybody is confusing where they are typing.

    So, how about move typing focus to reply…

  13. Manual Away Settings and Status Text Box

    The R/G/Y status indicator doesn't work. It seems to drive itself which is pointless. We need to be able to manually set it like Skype.

    Of greater importance is the status TEXT. We MUST have this to show if we are traveling and when in the next 2 days, and when we have PTO. If we're heads down and don't want contact but will accept contact if needed, we need to set to Green and have that text in there. We're a 100% remote team and must rely on Teams for this.

    PS - We're planning on sunsetting Slack for…

  17. Automatic dark mode switching

    Dark mode should have a 'system default' option, so that the Teams app on Android and iOS switches on/off the dark mode when the system switches it on/off.

  18. Mobile app dark theme respect system dark theme toggle

    iOS and Android both have native system dark themes now. The Teams app should respect the system dark theme toggle like the Outlook mobile app does. Eg when the system dark theme is activated, the Teams dark theme should be automatically be activated and vice versa.

  19. Move the "Share Content" button away from the "Leave" button

    In the new meeting experience, is it possible to move the "Share Content" button further from the "Leave" button? Or to place a section-break in between? We only just updated this week and I've heard at least 4 stories of users going to share their screen but being a bit too quick with the mouse and clicking "Leave" by mistake.

  20. Simpler editor without formatting (WYSIWYG)

    As a developer, we share a lot of code snippets and logs information. Would be great to have a simpler text editor, with no formatting (pasting something from the web is often painful) for composing messages.

    It could use markdown for formatting, keeping it user-friendly.

    Maybe an option in the settings to use the simpler editor would fit better for all types of users.
