  2. Please add feature to pin the UI fonts to a minimum size.

    UI 9pt font for Ribbon menu (Activity, Chat, Teams, Meetings, Calls, Files, etc.)

    Ctrl + will increase font size while Ctrl - decreases font size. This change affects the entire UI, not just the message text.

    In other apps such as MS Word, increasing/decreasing zoom for document text does not affect all ribbon bars and menu items, yet in Teams, this is exactly what happens. Only app ever to have noticed this behavior where zooming text affects UI menu and ribbon bar fonts.

  3. Fix the "(name) is typing" glitch

    Every time someone is typing a message, even after they have sent the message, the prompt "(name) is typing" shows up for a few more seconds. It may not seem like a big deal, but it always makes me wait, expecting them to keep typing another message.

  4. Link to file | copy when file is opened

    Currently, it's possible to get/copy a file's link from the file overview. It would be useful when we can get/copy the link of a file when it's opened.

  5. Stop wasting my eyes

    Dude, please use Slack and see the difference. When using Teams it's like communicating with my team in the pitch dark. It's incredible when you even have Slack and can study what makes it work you manage to build something so pre-school, so rudimentary so impossibly difficult to use as Teams.. It's just boxes and menus. Where is the design, where is the understanding of human centered design? Just this insane feedback page exemplifies it all. Do you really think I'm going to spend 20 minutes of my valuable time reading all the noise on this page? I just want…

  6. Support two-finger scroll on an image.

    For zooming, we can use pinch-in/out instead.

  8. Differences between mobile and desktop

    nevagation bar in the desktop vesrion in the left, in mobile app it’s in the footer, everytime I got confused because I used teams at work from desktop then I open it from my phone, I alwayes checked the left nevagation bar first, then I remember It’s in the footer, this is wrong I think from UX perspective

  9. Feed

    When you choose the feed tab it's very hard to know which feed object you want to check. They all look the same and if you open up one of them to check or read and then close it again, you don't know any longer which you just checked. They all look the same (nearly).
    For me that's quite useless.
    Some kind of better preview is needed :)

  10. Conversations UX

    Request for cleaner user experience with conversations tabs where start of conversation is stepped-out from replies. (As shown in attached image.)

    Also update new message footer (Teams Conversations Tab) to be the same length as the start of message.

    Also add chathead and name of person sending chat (in meetings & regular chat).

  11. Public facing information about the usage data details on Teams

    It would be great if the public facing document has details on what activities and how data retrieved from Microsoft Teams to be shown on the Usage report.

  12. So confusing UX

    I have 8 years dev experience in big companies.
    Your non general UX makes ppl confused to get used to it.
    where is group chat? where is dm? not straightforward.
    why the group chat is always collapsed so I should expend that every time?

    Why do you spam emails everytime as default?

    dont try to make better things differently. that makes ppl go away.
    just mimic the major one first and add features one by one later

    your benefit is Team is for free. use that one first.

    Cheers,

  13. The URLs when "copy link" are too long to paste into MS's own products e.g. MS Outlook. I've had to resort to using bit.ly to truncate!

  14. Have "*** is typing" messages be accurate.

    After someone sends a message in Teams it says "*** is typing" for 2-3 seconds when in actuality they are not typing. I'm always expecting another message from people that never comes.

    Edwards wants to like things more than once. Probably his own posts.

  17. Use true italics

    Please use Segoe UI's true italic, instead of slanting the regular version of Segoe UI.

  18. Show previews of files in microsoft teams. Allow files to be shown in line view as well as in grid view.

    Is it possible to add a file preview to files on Microsoft Teams files? Our team stores many image/icon files on Teams, and it would help to be able to see a thumbnail preview, instead of just locating files by file name.

    Also, it would help to be able to organize files in a list format, as well as in a grid format.

  19. Isn’t this a bad way to collect feedback? It’s a echo chamber, the top results are on top and people who want to help but want to be quick j

    Don’t use a voting system for product feedback - it’s an echo chamber - more people vote for those because they are easy and at the top of the list. I’m not practically going to scroll through all the ideas to see which match my experience. If you want unbiased feedback ask open ended first and remove the vote counts from choices, and randomize those ones your product team wants additional input on. Design by top votes is like reading news by popularity - you get a bunch of ****.

  20. New Chat, why the button?

    When I click the button to start a new Chat, a new row is shown among my ongoing chats, it is titled New Chat until I add someone to the conversation and start chatting. Instead of having the button for a new chat, can this New Chat row be shown always instead? It feels redundant to have the button, which is not very well placed at the moment.
