  1. Add a flag to the MSI installer to clean up per user installs

    The new MSI installer is a very welcome addition, but the process of converting a machine from a per-user install to system wide is a bit of a pain.

    Why not add an option to the installer to do this when the MSI is deployed?

  2. External Persistent chat priority alert

    It would be very useful to be able to assign a different type of alert for different persistent chats. For example:

    We use Skype's persistent chat for remote teams during critical events.

    the notification windows & alert sounds for chats with a higher priority should look and sound differently so that they stand out from other chats.

    This would allow us to train users to respond accordingly and increase our efficiency when responding to critical events whose responders are in various remote locations that are contributing to and participating in the event response.

  4. Customization

    Add personalisation just like in SharePoint where you can add your Company logo and look and feel + adding custom style sheets etc.
    Would be so much nicer if you can make it more personal to your own companies styling

  5. notification on desktop app

    Multiple notifications came out from the same chat and there is no way to dismiss the notification other than clicking into the chat one by one. Each line of chat are displayed as separate notification and flooded the right side of screen.

  7. Conversation searching needs to be improved

    I found an instance where I needed to go back to a point in time with a conversation with. colleague of mine. I remembered some of the details so I used those to search. I found one of the messages from that time frame, but when clicking on it there is not an option to jump to that point in time. When you click “go to conversation” it just takes you to your chat with that person and the bottom of the transcript. That’s not helpful. My only other option is to scroll back up to that date/time, but since…

  8. pdf viewer rotate

    The PDF viewer inside of Teams is a very weak minimally viable product. Rather than ask for a whole bunch of features, it would be nice to open the PDF in the viewer I have registered on my computer that will be much more robust. Currently I have to download and then open...kind of a pain. Would be better to open like I can from a browser where the MIME type is past to the OS and the OS can open with the viewer that it has registered for that file type. Alternatively...put an awesome full featured PDF viewer inside…

  10. Loading Screen Stuck

    On my machine, there's a bug where the 'Loading Teams...' screen gets stuck and stays visible even after Teams is running, and I can't close it. I have to use Task Manager to kill it and restart Teams several times a day. It seems to be tied to suspend/resume as it doesn't happen right away when I start Teams. I'm using an HP ZBook with an HP dock.

  11. 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).

  14. allow all participants to type and draw on a whiteboard or shared screen simultaneously

    allow all participants to type and draw on a whiteboard or shared screen simultaneously. Right now, control must be requested and released, rather than being able to get input from all participants simultaneously for all to see and collaborate from

  20. Undock Chat

    It would be great to have the option to Undock the Chat into another window and manage it like Skype (RIP) and have the option to group contacts and meetings.
