  1. I want to check status messages in bulk

    Even if you set the status message, it does not appear unless you place the cursor on the icon.
    It would be nice if you could view status messages in bulk in the call's contact field.

  2. Cannot hide a pinned conversation

    You cannot "Hide" a pinned conversation. You first have to UnPin it and then hide it. "Hide" is "Hide" it should not matter that it is "Pinned". There should be a "Hide" / "UnHide" icon right after the user's name. See other posts on this icon topic.

  4. Include Company in Call History

    The call history includes a Name for callers if they are in my contacts list. It would be nice if it showed the Name, Company and the phone number used on the call, as well as the date and time the call took place.

  6. 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.

  7. Views are not saved on the desktop appplication

    The views are not saved on the Teams desktop. If change a view on planner or if a sort my folders by name, size or modification, the last view mode is not saved.
    I think you should go back the last view mode you have used.
    Thank you

  8. 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.

  9. 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

  14. Use standard mouse pointer for title bar buttons.

    In the desktop app, the mouse pointer changes to a hyperlink hand when hovering above the title bar buttons (minimize, close, back, etc.). This isn't consistent with any other app I've seen, so it disrupts the expected user experience. Please change to the standard mouse pointer.

  15. Please enable file send without message send

    When you want to send a file you attach a file to a chat. It is annoying to have to type a message before the send button works. It should be possible to attach file then send.

  17. Making the dekstop install not so buggy

    I have had to install, uninstall, and reinstall both the 32 and 64 versions of Teams on my desktop at least 4 times now. It will work for a day maybe 2 at the most and then go through a spiral of trying to login, closing the program, and trying to login again. This cycle would repeat for an entire 8 hour work day if I didn't force shut down the program. I can't in good conscience roll this out to even a test team in the company if they can't get the download to function properly

    needs your feedback  ·  swatijha responded

    Thanks for sharing information. Would you mind sharing your machine spec and names of any major software you are running on it (Office, VSO, etc.) so that we could try to recreate similar machine/environment and see if we can repro the issue?

    Appreciate your inputs!

  18. Autostart

    Is it possible you can create another autostart client soon.. I have only 3 - 4 M$ Office products starting up when I power on?

    It is usually ready to work at lunch time, a couple of more M$ autostart "features" and I don't need to do anything more than start up the old can, wait it for to be done, shut down and had home.

    Thanks Guys! :)

    We are working on enabling settings where user can control if they want the app to start in background or doesn’t want app to start on machine boot at all. It should be available very soon. We will keep you posted once we have it in production.

  19. Force a specific image as the default Teams custom background

    While I can now change my teams background to an image I specify (by coping it into this folder: %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads), our company would like to set a default image for every teams user on their PC. Doesn't seem possible yet to do this. But I was thinking if we set a group policy to drop the image we want in everyone’s Teams 'Uploads' folder, then perhaps there is a registry setting in teams that we could force to use our custom image?

  20. notification throttle

    Add the ability to throttle a notification. I would like the ability to get a single notification and then not get subsequent notifications unless I open and check teams or X time has passed.
