  1. Multi-window for chats and more

    I want to have separate top-level windows for each person I'm chatting with, rather than tabs.

    Hooray! Multi-Window chat has been a long-awaited feature, and it is rolled out fully to the general public. Please be sure to “check for updates” and restart your client if you aren’t seeing it.

    For more information, please visit https://support.office.com/en-us/article/pop-out-a-chat-in-teams-cff95cb0-34af-423f-8f69-fe9106973790.

    Note: Multi-Window Meetings is tracked in this item – https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/37160077.

    Enjoy!

  2. Use same date and time format as in my computer's settings

    Many people like to use English as their display language, but get confused with the US date format: 11/06 is October 6 in the US, but June 11 in many other countries. Why not display the date according to the setting in Windows?

    Same goes for time, of course, where many use 24 hour format instead of am and pm.

  3. User customizable left navigation

    The far left navigation panel seems to have a whole lot of blank space just calling out to be filled with things, and there is plenty of functionality within Teams that could be put there so users could reach it faster. That big gap between Files and Feedback is wasted space!

    You should let individual users decide what goes in this space by giving them the ability to pin additional things they want there. I use the 'Saved' functionality a lot for example. It would be nice to have it out there only one click away. Perhaps I think a…

    Users can now pin their personal apps right where they can readily access them – on the Teams app bar. Simply find the app, right-click the icon, and select “pin”. Even after you navigate away, the app icon will remain so you can easily return to it. You can also customize your app bar further by dragging and dropping apps to your desired position, or unpinning apps.

    This feature is in addition to the Teams Admin’s ability to establish tenant-wide policies for the apps that appear on everyone’s Teams app bar.

  4. Customize Sidebar

    I would really like the ability to choose which apps go in the sidebar. It just makes sense.

  7. Right To Left Support

    I hope that unlike every other Office product, we won't have to wait for years before decent Right to Left languages are supported.

    Please add RTL by default!

  8. Use cmd instead of alt/option for shortcuts (was @ in Mac application)

    Did you noticed that using a Mac, when you try to write an @ doesn't work?It seems that ALT + 2 works as a shortcut and opens the chat window.

  9. Enable "Enter key" in web tab

    The Enter key opens a browser session outside Teams. Users expect Enter (specially in Web tabs) to execute the Enter command as expected in the context.

    This will improve the usability of Teams due to the fact that users won't have to switch between teams and browser

  10. Stop bugging me about downloading the desktop app as long as I'm on Linux and there isn't a client for it

    I'm on Linux and my user agent reflects that. Please stop showing the annoying and misleading "Want an even faster, more collaborative experience? Download the desktop app." notification - as long as it isn't applicable to Linux.
    Also dismissing it (by clicking X) only works till next login, which is also annoying.

  11. Free version of Teams or be condemned in small adoption rate.

    Slack and even Discord grow because they are fresh, but also free. Especially Slack is free for up to 10 people. Which is great for small talented teams. And these are the people who adopt it fast.

  12. Clicking Close Stains Desktop

    When you hover over the "X" to close out of teams, it displays the words "close" under the mouse cursor to let the user know what clicking the "X" will do. Pretty self-explanatory. The only issue, is if you click the "X" before the words "close" are displayed under the cursor, Teams will close, and then the words close will appear where the cursor was, but stay there. They stain the desktop, and regardless of which application you have open, the words close will cover the top right-hand corner of the screen. If you hover over the "X" and allow…

  13. Allow Full Screen Options for Tabs

    The ability to work in full screen on a specific tab. We are adding 'websites' as new tabs, and since these websites have left navigations and the teams have a left pane, it would be nice to work in full screen on a specific tab.
    Also related to expanding/collapsing the left pane in the teams desktop

    Just click the icon in the upper right hand corner (when you’re inside your tab) that looks like two arrows pointing in opposite directions. This will expand your tab.

  14. Provide refresh button for tab

    Changes in tabbed resources do not always appear in a timely manner (e.g. new files added by a different user). A refresh button would force a refresh of the current view without resetting back to the starting point (as the reload button does).

    Thank you for this idea! We took your feedback and incorporated into the product. We added a refresh button at the top corner of the Files tab in each channel. You now have an easy way to check for new files or any other changes that might have happened since you last looked.

    Thank you for helping us make Teams better and better! We look forward to more feedback and suggestions from you. :-)

    Sincerely,

  16. Remove download Desktop ad for Teams on Chromebook

    We are using teams in and educational setting. The problem for the students is that the ad to download the desktop application takes up so much space that on the main page when launching on a small scree device. The students can exit the ad but upon returning to teams the ad is back up front and center. This constant ad becomes a time management issue for students or students just leave it there and use the very tiny space left to work in teams.

  17. Quality assurance

    The app chrashes multiple times and asks to sign in after restarting, then crashes again.
    Obviously, the quality assurance for this product is not working and this needs to be resolved

    We’re sorry you saw this crash issue! I’m happy to announce that our team has just deployed a solution. If you are still affected, you may need to uninstall and re-install Teams to fully restore service (teams.microsoft.com/downloads). Please let us know if you need help troubleshooting.

    Thanks!
