  1. Indicator/Feedback outgoing audio

    There is no indicator when there is outgoing audio from my mic. Would be helpful as confirmation that the settings have the correct mic. and that others should be able to hear me. Not enough to know I am unmuted.

    maybe use the badge in the top bar next to window controls.

  2. Make it easier to archive Teams

    We really like the ability to archive Teams, but currently this option is a bit hard to find.

    If you click the ellipsis next to a team in the Teams sidebar, you get options for "Hide", "Manage team", "Add channel", "Add member", "Leave the team", "Edit team", "Get link to team", "Manage tags", and "Delete the team".

    If you go into the "Manage teams" interface by clicking the cogwheel at the bottom of the Teams sidebar then the ellipsis next to each team gives you options to "Manage team", "Add channel", "Add member", "Leave the team", "Edit team", "Get link…

  3. Help app in Microsoft Teams unusable in dark mode

    If you set Microsoft Teams to dark mode, it makes code blocks and notes nearly unusable in the help app.

    The in-app Help for Teams contains notes in numerous places. They are displayed in a white font on an almost-white background, making them unreadable.

    For an example, click the three-dot item in Teams' sidebar menu ('More added apps'), click 'Help', click the 'Schedule a meeting' link and scroll down:

    Can this be fixed up? It works fine in Normal mode, and in high-contrast mode.

  4. 'Insert link' button available in the compressed view ribbon bar.

    Our team post with links an awful lot. Would be so much quicker if the 'insert links' button appeared in the ribbon of the compressed view for posting.

  6. Dancing Tiles When Sharing Content

    When you go to share your screen/content a list of tiles appear which are available for sharing but the tiles move around.

    These tiles "dance" for a 1-2 seconds prior to "locking" into a specific position on the screen so it is very easy to accidentally select the wrong tile (i.e. the tile where your cursor is placed initially may not be the tile where your cursor is after the tiles have finished "dancing")

    This is very critical to resolve as clicking the wrong screen/content to share actually can create a privacy issue as well as being very annoying.

  7. Groups (not teams) for terminology within the Teams app

    Call the left hand navigation panel "Groups" instead of "Teams" to avoid confusion (they're called Groups in Outlook and in Yammer). Change the naming convention to call them "groups" as in "Join or create a group" instead of a team. Also, these are actual Office 365 Groups behind the scenes so this would be more consistent...just a little less confusing.

  8. Version Number for Teams clients for GCC

    Please add some sort of identifier for the GCC cloud Teams clients. When we install a Teams client, we can't tell if we've installed the correct one as the "About" shows only the version number, and the GCC client and the commercial client seem to usually be at the exact same version number. Would like either a different version number, or something like "GCC edition" or something in the About so we know we're distributing the correct client software.

  11. Show last frame for participants without active video

    In large calls I cannot see the video off all participants, which is a technical limitation.
    As a small improvement I'd suggest that all users don't show their profile pic (or the initials) but the last frame/still pic from their video.

  12. Frequent and accurate updates to Microsoft 365 Roadmap web site

    When a feature is formally accepted for development by Microsoft in this forum, can we please ensure this is promptly added to the Microsoft 365 Roadmap web site at https://www.microsoft.com/en-au/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=Microsoft%20Teams. We are seeing a significant lag with this, for example Featured ID: 63341 for increased video layout - after being suggested in this forum 3 years ago, and promoted as coming soon by Microsoft for months, this was only added to the Microsoft 365 Roadmap web site 16 days ago.

    Another example is Featured ID: 62755 for raising hands in meetings - this has already rolled out (at least…

  13. Color Code Grades tab

    Grades tab that shows the assignments and student status - Turned In, Reviewed, Returned. It'd be useful if these were color-coded so I wouldn't have to, you know, read. :)

  14. Stronger visualization for "your microphone is muted" toast-message

    Teams already shows a toat-message is a user is speaking while having muted it's micro. I experience during meetings that nonetheless some users do not catch this message and do not unmute their micro. the toast could be shown in a higher contrasting color to raise the visibility.

  15. Teams should respect Windows standard UX Design

    It should be possible to minimize to Taskbar - so as not to have it listed within Alt-Tab navigation
    It should respect multi-desktop segregation - so as not to have it on ALL Desktops, but only the one where it is visible
    It should be default behavior - like most of the applications that respect standard U/X design

  16. @MicrosoftTeams any chance of being able to organise teams into folders? A few of our users are requesting it to help alleviate visual clutt

    @MicrosoftTeams any chance of being able to organise teams into folders? A few of our users are requesting it to help alleviate visual clutter once they're in more than a couple of teams.

  17. In To Do allow Notes and Checklist items to display on card at the same time

    Within a card, currently only the Notes or Checklist can be displayed at a time and selecting one then de-selects the other. Please allow both on the card at the same time. As the user I can then choose how crowded or simple I'd like a card to be.

  19. Regarding linking Microsoft Teams Contacts

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams 連絡先の連動について
    Regarding linking Microsoft Teams Contacts


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams 左側ナビゲーションバー [通話] - [連絡先] 内に表示される連絡先につきましては、Outlook の "個人連絡先" と連携を確認しているが、Outlook 側で作成したのフォルダーとも [連絡先] の連携が出来ると便利なため、機能の実装を希望いたします。
    Regarding the contacts displayed in [Calls]-[Contacts] on the left side of Microsoft Teams, we have confirmed that they can be linked to "Personal contacts" in Outlook. It will be convenient if folders created in Outlook can be linked with "Contacts" as well, so we hope such a feature will be implemented.
