  1. 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

  4. Stacking Chat Notifications

    This might be more windows UX but it would be nice if the notifications stacked for chats. I am part of an active group chat and I don't want to disable notifications completely but it is also distracting when there are notifications all up the side of my computer!

  5. 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.

  6. Remove the Activity feed

    The Activity feed seems redundant and unnecessary, leading to confusion. Instead, just show an icon on the tab that there is activity on, and give a clear path of icons showing where the notification is.

  7. Allow thumbprint view of images in files section

    Allow view changes just like in Windows for files. For instance, detail, small thumbnails, medium thumbnails, large thumbnails, etc.

  8. 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.

  9. Add a shortkey to jump to unread messages

    Slack has the all-round shortkey Ctrl+K, which allows me to jump to any chat (group/channel/person). It automatically lists channels/chats with unread messages at the top. So jumping through unread chats is just 2 clicks each, without using the mouse. I'd love to have the same feature in Teams!

  10. Log out & Quit buttons

    Guys, whole world (including your apps like Skype or Skype for Business) has Quit/Exit/Close button on the bottom of context menu, with Team I always end up with logging out instead of closing application. Very simple to change, very annoying if not changed.

  12. more typing less clicking

    every function should have a keyboard shortcut and/or command trigger that can be typed. please don't make me click!

    one of the main strengths of competitive tools (like slack) is the ability to do everything without ever taking your hands off the keyboard.

    one example is giphy integration. i like that i can search for images - instead of just being surprised with something... but i don't want to stop typing to click, then resume typing to search, then stop typing to click an image, then resume typing to complete my message

  13. View bookmark for Saved messages

    I appreciate the new Reactions for messages. However, I also rely very heavily on Saving messages. Since adding the new Reactions, the bookmark for saved messages is no longer visible on the message without opening the context menu -- this is very inconvenient. Please display the bookmark again on the message! Thanks

  14. Cannot cancel post edit

    After selecting "Edit" on a post you cannot cancel the edit even after quitting the app. (There's no "Cancel" option and "Esc" doesn't do anything.) You have to "Send" the non-edited post, which then shows the post as "Edited" even though it wasn't.

  15. share a link to local version of documents (file:///)

    It would improve usability for a team on a LAN to be able to use links to local folders. Can this feature be added? I just want to have a clickable link to Windows File Explorer, like you can with html.

  16. left justification of conversation feed

    The main conversations view has everything center justified. Makes it hard to read. Slack does a great job of making the core conversation UX compact, readable and scannable.

  17. Remove recommended users

    I always see the same recommended users, with no way of hitting a x to remove them. One of those users left our company years ago for example.
    Now there's no way to say 'no thanks, I don't want / need to add this user to my list'. It just keeps showing up.

  19. Add a functionality enabling to merge / split Teams Group

    Organizations evolve and teams or projects split or merge. A functionality enabling splitting or merging Teams Group (and thus retrieving easily Files, OneNotes, etc...) would stick to "real life"

  20. Teams startup in system tray only

    Please create an option for Teams to startup in the system tray only. I can get more people to use it that way! I really like this app so far!
