  1. Open links to teams in Desktop App

    SITUATION: When you receive a link to a Teams file or folder, or really anything in Teams, like a Planner task - it sends you to the sharepoint site, regardless of whether you have the Desktop App installed and even if it is open.

    RESOLUTION: Make links to any Teams elements open directly in the Teams Desktop App

    This will save so much time and frustration from people, and also make Teams seem like a more integrated solution for everyone.

  2. Proofing tools (spell check, theasaurus, autocorrect)

    One of the defining features of office down the years has been the proofing tools (i.e. Spell checker, theasaurus, autocorrect, grammar checker). I would love to see these come to Teams.

    The way I envisage this working is as I'm typing a message the famous red/blue/green squigglies that we've all become familiar with should show up.

    Most of all I'd like autocorrect (i.e. a spelling correction that I've used previously automatically gets applied as I type). Stretch goal for this, have a single set of autocorrects that work across all of Office 365, including the client apps.

    Some people might…

    working on it  ·  Suphatra responded

    Hi everyone, the engineer working on this item has left the company and we’re working on replacing him. I wanted to give you that heads up because the work has paused, which extends our shipping date.

    I really appreciate your patience as we work to get this back to actively worked on.

  3. Spell check in multiple languages

    It would be nice if it was possible to have the Teams desktop app in one languge and spell checking in multiple languge and at the same time customize date and time format.

    E.g. I would like to have Teams in English, have spell checking in English and Danish, and have date and time format in "Danish".

  4. Improve Install options - Install for all users and install location

    Raising this again as Microsoft closed the previous request, saying it was complete even though it was not. (link below)

    Teams should install to the program files directory, not the users AppData.

    And NO, the answer is not to put a copy of the MSI in Pogram Files and deploy to the users AppData when they login.

  7. Teams Windows client greatly increases roaming profile size (Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams)

    On Windows, Teams is available as an end user self-install app. The app installs to AppData\Local, so not part of the roaming profile. However, it stores LOTS of content in AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams.

    Our organisation uses roaming profiles and profile size policy; users are beginning to exceed a [very generous!] limit, and Teams is a big cause of this.

    Please fix!

  9. Ability to prevent auto-start persistantly and programmatically using TAC/Group Policy

    See MSTCommunity request here -

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/How-to-Prevent-Teams-from-Auto-Launch/m-p/730658#M34150

    Even though autostart can be prevented upon installation a single time (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/teams-install) and then turned off manually within the desktop client, there is a need by some businesses to ensure that the Desktop client does not auto-start at any time and yet be able to enable this programmatically via TAC/Group Policy without having to jump in users desktop client to turn it off.

  10. Support for Citrix and RDS Environments

    Support for the desktop Teams application to be installed directly into Program Files and not into the users AppData.

    Currently this method is not viable for a RDS environment such as Citrix or Horizon View.

    Please publish the update history for Microsoft Teams Client on the Web.

    I can check the list of Update history for Office 365 ProPlus on the web.

  12. Enable full SharePoint navigation

    I've linked to a communiction SharePoint homepage in a tab in teams expecting it to essentially be the full SharePoint experience but it cuts out the navigation and literally just shows the web parts of the home page.

    I want to be able to navigate the SharePoint as normal from here but from some reason Teams cuts this out.

  13. The desktop app always freezes

    When I use TEAMs from my desktop it always freezes.

    It’s not the computer, it’s been checked. It happens to my teammates as well.

  14. Bug: Teams restarts several times a day

    Teams restarts several times a day, it says a new update has been installed. I think something goes wrong with installing the update and then it tries the same an hour later.

    I run Teams as a standard user (non admin), maybe it doesn't have enough priveledges to successfully finish the update?

    Please fix.

  17. New Meeting Experience should have Fullscreen

    In the New Meeting Experience you don't have Fullscreen anymore. And "Focus" doesn't really cut the chase. Fullscreen between identical office monitors gives your the exact experience of the shared screen. The moment you have controls or window frames around it, fonts start to scale, small lines become blurry and so on. So please, add Fullscreen to the New Experience. It's not that hard. Every freakin' browser out there can do it, including Edge. And yes, I want it on F11 while your at it.

  19. desktop app not reconnecting

    Desktop app does not do a very good at reconnecting if it drops connection to wireless or network and then reconnects. It will try a couple of times, but then fails.
