  2. 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).

  3. 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 💔.

  4. 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…

  5. 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…

  6. 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.

  7. 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).

    under review  ·  Warren responded

    We are looking into having multiple windows for Teams.

    And thank you for the interesting idea!
    -Warren

  8. 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.

  11. 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

  12. 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.

  13. BUG: "Copy Join Info" button copies a useless text string instead of the meeting link.

    In the Teams desktop application for both OSX and Windows, hitting the "Copy Join Info" button during a meeting copies the string:

    Join Microsoft Teams Meeting Learn more about Teams

    Apparently it is trying to copy the rich text body of the meeting notes, which defaults to a hyperlink with the same text. Instead, it should provide a link to the actual meeting that an outside user can click to join in. Please fix the button.

  14. Display keyboard shortcuts in hover states

    I love using keyboard shortcuts to speed up my work. Please consider adding keyboard shortcuts to hover states to help learn what the keyboard shortcuts are.

  15. Team grouping organization

    As we migrate all our regions and offices to Teams, we have started to realize that being able to identify Team's purpose adds some level of complexity.

    We are proposing to add to the UI a way to create "Groups" and not related Teams under its correspondent group.

    Just like we have Favorites, there would be other headings we can give names and move teams underneath of them.

    We believe this will avoid confusion, for both experienced users and novice users.

  18. 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.

  19. Disable or Modify Keyboard Shortcuts

    On Mac, when using a keyboard in another language (i.e. Spanish), some keyboard shortcuts make it impossible to type certain things like "@" or "#" because the key combination to type those symbols is directly linked to Teams keyboard shortcuts.

    This is particularly a big problem when trying to mention specific users with the "@" symbol, the app switches to the "Chats" tab and it's impossible to mention user in the Teams tab general chat.
