  1. Add actual Contact List functionality for chats

    The current design/implementation for chats is terrible. Just create a way to create a contact list with the ability to sort people into "groups". Every other chat client does this. If this could be done, it would make Teams a lot more useable. If companies are expected to use Teams as a true collaboration tool, one of the biggest features are chat, which it currently sucks at (when compared to tools like Slack, HipChat, Trillian, etc.).

  2. 各チャネルの既読・未読について

    ・不便だと感じる現象
     チームのチャネルに複数人が複数の投稿を行った際、
     未読の「会話」があっても、気づきづらい。

    ・理由
     最新の会話は最下部に表示されるような設計になっており、
     複数人が別々の会話に投稿した場合、
     最下部から複数個の会話が未読状態となり、チャネル名が太字となる。
     ところが、その状態でチャネルを閲覧すると、
     太文字が解除されてしまい、どの会話が未読かまでは判断できない。
     見逃しが多数発生する。

    ・アイディア
     ・未読の会話には、未読を示すアイコンかなにかを表示してほしい。
     ・チャネル名の横に、未読の会話数を示す数値がほしい。

  4. Too much wasted space used, you need a compact view with the ability to hide the side bar, pictures and the chat field is way too wide.

  7. Please allow users to choose an IRC-like format for Chat

    Right now, chat is displayed in bubbles, almost like an SMS text message. In my opinion, it should be changed to look like IRC (no bubbles, text displayed as a “wall” almost).

    Many other chat clients do this (Discord, Slack, HipChat), and I think it lends itself very well to group chat. At the very least, an option to change between display styles would be MUCH appreciated.

  8. Wasted horizontal space

    It feels like there's a lot of wasted horizontal space in the channels, particularly when I am hooking up integrations that post quite a lot of information, each post is centred in the channel with very large borders each side of unused whitespace.

    This results in lots of information compressed into a small area and more scrolling needed as a result.

  9. select multiple messages

    I cannot select multiple messages at the same time. Sometimes I need to copy full conversations and this is impossible to be done from Teams

  10. Override default TAB behaviour when editing a file

    When editing a file, such as an Excel document, the natural behaviour of pressing TAB to advance a cell is instead captured by the parent application, Teams.

    As a user this is somewhat unexpected and not useful.

    Most people working in the office suite in teams, will expect the TAB key behaviour to be the same.

    Small point, big impact for those that wish to use this app regularly :)

  11. VSTS Build Status Color/Icon Indicator

    When displaying VSTS build notifications in the feed it would be nice if the "Build Succeeded/Failed" text would be color coded or had a status icon to go with it, making it easer to see the status at a glance.

  12. Notifications Sounds PLEASEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

    Please enable the option of sounds for notifications! I don't pay any attention to the bar, and there are users out there who completely hide it. Most of the time I don't realize someone has sent me a message until an hour later.

    It completely defeats the purpose of having this feature. Can you please enable notifications the same way it is for Skype Business?

    Thanks!

  13. like/save button

    If possible, relocate like/save button that pops up after a message.
    This actually covers the text and kind of irritating

  14. Make file links from teams/sharepoint a tiny URL with preview.

    When attaching a link to a file withing the team, add a link either with a preview or less of an eyesore. This is just for better usability.

  16. Change feed order

    Change feed order so the recent posts appear at top (similar to facebook). Or at least give the chance to change this behaviour.

  17. Ability to add links to files/attachments to calendar items

    Could there be an option to have a button to add a link or to attach a file to a calendar meeting? Yes you can manually add a link to the body but a simple button option would be great if the file is stored in Files, OneDrive or SharePoint.

  18. Standalone 'Chat' Interface

    While I understand that one goal of Teams is to bring all of the tools under one UX, Microsoft should consider allowing for a break out of the 'Chat' tool for user experience. While there are a number of use cases, one simple example of need is where something is being edited or viewed in the teams UX and a 'Chat' comes in, if the user clicks to view the chat, they lose their place in whatever file or video they were viewing their their other respective channel. The preference would be to have chat in one window, and the…

  19. icon for channels

    Ability to add icons for channels. Currently only we are allowed to add icons for Teams. Would be great if we have the ability to customize the channels as well. It would make more sense if the channels keep growing and it would be really easy to identify the channels.

  20. Quick Hide and Hide All Conversations

    Currently in Teams it takes two mouse clicks to close a chat conversation. In Skype there is a "X" to close the conversation. This results in a single mouse click to close out a conversation window.
    This makes it easy to rapidly close out any open conversatations you are finished with. It would be nice to have this same function in Teams.
    The X could go either to the left of the CHAT name or next to the "...".

    Also it is very easy for your "RECENT CHAT" tab to get filled up with several conversations and takes a long…
