  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Short Links - like OneNote links

    Copying links to locations in OneNote and pasting into other places creates a short HTML link in a format "Location (Web View)". Something similar in Teams would be brilliant. Pasting links to places or documents in Teams (even within the Teams environment) results in gargantuan strings like:

    https://teams.microsoft.com/_#/files/abcde?threadId=19%3A5284adh639fm85844c01ad0e633c0e7f272b%40thread.skype&messageId=1507595897215&ctx=channel&context=New%2520Phase%252F01%2520Client%2520Issued%2520Documents%252FCore%2520Dialogue%2520Documents

  9. Remove 'speech bubbles'; increase message density

    Teams UI is beautiful, but the message density is very low because of all the beautiful speech bubbles hogging my screen space. This is literally the only thing preventing my entire dev team moving to Teams from Slack; an option to toggle the visual display theme would be great!

  11. Allow the speaker/host to be displayed (video) while sharing the screen.

    Zoom allows the speaker to be displayed while screen sharing his/her screen. Want to have the ability to resize the shared screen AND the speaker's video window. It's important for American Sign Language signers. Once screen-shared, the speaker just collapsed into audio version/window. There should be an elegant way to preserve the speaker's video window and shared screen window at the same Teams interface window.

  12. Maintain contacts list collapsed groups

    I have many groups of Contacts, in which each group has several contacts depending on the organisation I am dealing with.

    In Skype for Business, whenever I collapse groups it always stays the same. Even when I terminate Skype and log back in, it seems to hold the same collapsed groups.

    This is not the case in Teams. Every time I move away from the Contacts list and I return, it opens up all the groups. So it becomes a nuisance to collapse them each time.

    Please implement the same functionality in Teams as is seen in SfB.

    Many thanks!

  14. Organize Teams in Teams

    Would be great to organize the Teams that I belong to by being able to use folders to put them into. I have multiple teams that are related to the same topic that are named all over the place because they have different owners. Even though I can put them next to each other it still gets messy.

  15. Change text size

    Given today's high resolution monitors, the text is too small to read. give the user the ability to resize the text so they can actually read it.

  16. Be able to pin the side nav bar so my teams and chats are always visible

    It's very annoying having to hover over/select the teams or chats option to change who I am chatting to all the time.

  19. In a Chat "Group", maintain the A.D. Display name instead of the First (legal) name.

    When a Teams user chats with another, the (A.D.) Display Name is used to indicate who is in the Chat.

    However, when multiple users join a Chat (Group Chat), Teams reverts to (A.D.) First Name.

    We have users with legal First Names defined in A.D. (per policy), but we always refer to Display Name in communications/messaging so that colleagues recognize them.

    Is there a way to allow Teams Group Chats to show Display Name instead of First Name?
    It would make Teams better for us if this was default. And if not, at least a configurable option.
    Thanks

  20. 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"
