  3. Make error messages appear somewhere in the app

    On the mac desktop app, I try to upload a file that gives me an error. in the top right corner of my screen. Clicking on the error gives me nothing and I can't read the full message in the little bubble so I have no idea what's wrong. Maybe show the error in the actual chat so it's readable?

  4. 1. Order

    Referring to the Desktop App version.
    Messages, conversations and changes are displayed with the original 'post' placed on top - descending in progressive historical posts. There is no option for sorting or filtering.
    Consider changing this with the latest input on top. Increases performance and efficiency - avoiding to have to go through a long list of elements that the user is already aware of or can refer to - if and when the situation requires - not each and every time.
    Thanks

  5. Maximized desktop app displays a thin white bar up the screen to the left.

    Teams Desktop app on Windows 10
    3 monitors are setup -- Left, center (main), and right.
    All monitors are the same resolution (1920x1080) with no scaling.

    With Teams maximized on the center/main screen, there is a vertical white bar on the left screen. On the left screen, it is in the top right corner going down. It is 5px width and 745px height.

  6. Automatically hide video window during desktop sharing

    When sharing your desktop, the small video window should automatically hide or minimize. This small video window (since shown on the shared desktop) is seen by all attendees, but never shows the presenter (only other attendees are shown, as they speak).

  11. Desktop sharing should allow a certain, definable area of the screen to be shared

    Desktop sharing should allow a certain, definable area of the screen to be shared, for example the left half, the right third, the first quarter at the top left, and so on.

    Reason:

    I work with a large screen and high resolution at my workplace. Other team users use smaller screens with lower resolutions. Accordingly, you can't see things so well on my shared screen. Releasing just a single application, on the other hand, is too little, because you would always have to laboriously change the released application. So it would be easier to share half or 2/3 of your…

  12. forwarding to virtual user agent (auto attendant or call queue)

    User should be able to set a forwarding to a virtual user (auto attendant / call queue) in the desktop client. Currently these virtual users cannot be found (or entered) in Settings/Calls/Call answering rules in the desktop client.

    In the mobile clients (both Android and iOS) the virtual users can however be found and used to forward calls to.

    Functionality is required as many organizations, like ours, like calls to be always answered even if the user is not able to or does not timely answer a call, instead of using voicemail.

  13. screen sharing keyboard layout BUG

    Its not really an idea, it is bug (a bug tracker would be a good idea...)

    The bug: if you take control over the screen of someone else, and the other person has a different keyboard layout, your keystrokes in teams are interpreted using the keyboard layout of the pc you are controlling.

    (try running some powershell commands if you have no idea where any symbols are).

  15. Prevent automatic login prompt for Teams

    We would like to prevent the automatic login when MS begins the deployment of the Teams client with Office 365 ProPlus. We very much want to deploy the Teams client so we would like it to be integrated with ProPlus, but the auto login will cause confusion for our community in the short term.

  17. Include policy settings applied to user in diag logs

    It would be a great troubleshooting tool if the list of service policies applied to a user's Microsoft Teams client are recorded in the MS Teams client logs (ctrl+alt+shift+1). Meetings Policies, Messaging Policies, App Policies, Teams Upgrade policies etc.

  19. what's new in desktop version

    Teams gets updated frequently, which is good. In the same way I can see what's new in phone app, desktop version should too:

    "You have Microsoft Teams Version x.x.xx.xxxxx (xx bit). It was last updated on dd/MM/yyyy"

    I have googled a few desktop versions and no information whatsoever on what changes they bring.

  20. client auto update

    How does the teams desktop client auto update in an enterprise environment? My management is concerned in a ~10K user environment if everyone signed on at the same time in the morning and a client update is available, that it will saturate our ISP connection if 10k folks are trying to pull an 80mb update package. Can you please describe how this mitigated? delivery optimization like Windows 10 can achieve for its updates? or randomized updating of the clients to not all update at once?
