  1. Chat vs Activity

    The Recent activity is a crowded mess. Whenever I start a chat with someone it should show in the chat not activity. I can't manage it very well and often miss things. Slack does it so well where if you add a group or you have a one off chat it is there as a chat, not as activity. The issues are further exasperated by group postings that crowd more important things out.

  2. Add contact which have non-E.164 formartted phone number

    In Teams, only E.164 phone number is able to added to contacts now. However, I need a feature to add contact any phone number which is not E.164 formatted (e.g. extension number).

  4. The footprint

    The foot print is to large on the desktop. You need to allow shrink. Adding new people to my frequent list on chat is to cumbersome, you need to get back to Skype functionality. Finding past conversations and meetings, history, is a hit and miss. It needs to be easier.

  5. Please stop TEAMS from opening automatically every time I open my computer.

    I don't want TEAMS to open automatically EVERY time I open the computer. I want to be in charge of when it opens.

  7. Improved ability to handle Images and Media

    Images load one by one and the process of doing it is very slow. It would be nice if you could paste several images and/or media to have it end up with something like the attached where you see a preview and can expand to see the full size, or download it.

    This process is also especially painful on the ios mobile app (not sure on android), but if it handled images more like other mobile text apps that would be much improved.

  8. Restore window to same monitor it was minimized on.

    I have 3 monitors, the Left 2 are portrait while the right is landscape.
    The primary monitor is the landscape one on the right.

    I place Teams on my left-most monitor. If I minimize, then go to restore it later, it returns to the right monitor instead of the same monitor it was minimized on.

  9. Better pen support for desktop client

    Pen input (scrolling,tapping,etc.) does not work well and freezes the window for a couple moments.

  12. INACTIVE with desktop, not just TEAMS app

    There are still some definite shortcomings in TEAMS. For example, regarding that "real Time feel" the TEAMS client will go "Inactive" while your working in other applications, as opposed to SKYPE only goes inactive when you don't interact with your desktop for "X" duration

  13. Improve Skype for Business

    What an absolute state you've left Skype for Business in. You don't even check the huge amount of negative feedback you have on the forum for it.

    You've focused all your efforts on developing a new product while your current product is just ignored, so in the meantime there is nothing to fill the gap.

    Fix Skype for Business please.

  15. Share My Visual Studio so I can remote Pair Programming.

    I should be able to click a button and Capture my Visual Studio, Git Bash, etc. Once clicked any user in the group can edit, save, copy, etc. This would be useful for Pair Programming. Not a screen capture, a remote desktop for an application.

  16. Chat Acessibility

    I use a team that has website tabs for our daily work such as: ticketing system, reports, dashboards, intranet sit and other dashboards. It is really hard to use Teams as an all encompassing digital workspace when I have to get out of the team tab website to chat with anyone. If we could open chat in new tab or have the ability to split screen with chat and teams that would be AMAZING! LOVE TEAMS and am excited to watch it grow and continually improve.

  17. Please stop automatically collapsing the Section and Page list - it drives me mad - thanks

    If there is sufficient screen space, don't automatically collapse the list of Sections and Pages. This should be a User decision, a simple Pin/Unpin would do. Thanks

  19. Will Teams have the ability to show who is online and offline on any given channel?

    If Teams can add an option to show member status on a optional right side channel. This would be very helpful. As it is right now, you have no idea who is on or offline or if the correct people are included in a channel.
