  1. 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…

  2. Teams is great but needs to adopt a one-hotkey-to-rule-them-all paradigm similar to Slack's `cmd+k`

    Teams is great but needs to adopt a one-hotkey-to-rule-them-all paradigm similar to Slack's cmd+k. The current setup seems to have context sensitive hotkeys, and I can't always remember which ones to use where. I want to push one shortcut, type [part of] the name of the location I want to get to. It should go there regardless of my current location (can't get from chat to teams this way) and regardless of my destination.


    • one key to bring up keyboard navigation

    • UI quickly suggests chats, teams, channels, files, etc that have my text in them.

  3. Group conversations

    It would be great if you could add websites to a group conversation just like you can in a one on one conversation.

  4. BUG: It is possible for 2 users to call each other and the calls don't join

    2 users - call each other. Both are ringing. But you cannot see the other person's answer button because your screen shows that it is calling.

    Expected action - calls join or answer button visible to answer a call when calling.

  5. When I have Teams open on a monitor that isn't my main monitor and then undock my laptop, I'm unable to access

    When I have Teams open on a monitor that isn't my main monitor and then undock my laptop, I'm unable to access the application as it keeps trying to open it on my other monitor which at that time isn't connected making it inaccessible.

  6. Local state API in desktop client

    I as a teams user on my private device
    would like to have a local state api to see and change my current state
    so I can control teams via my elgato StreamDeck.

    States I would like to see:
    - webcam on/off
    - Mic on/off
    - Incoming call notification

    States I want to change:
    - turn webcam on/off
    - turn Mic on/off, accept from lobby
    - Accept incoming call with audio/video
    - Hangup/leave current meeting

    A local http(s) api would be perfect for me.

  7. Stop Auto Minimize When Sharing Screen

    I use dual monitors. I click to share the screen and MS Teams auto-minimizes.

    I need to keep Teams up so I can communicate with students in chat while I work on problems on the other monitor.

    Annoying to have to constantly bring it back up each time I share.

  8. Add "Pop out chat" feature on Channels as well.

    Add "Pop out chat" feature on Channels as well. Currently is available only on the one to one chat

    It helps when we are on a call on a channel but what to see a message from another channel or interact with another channel.

  9. Font Size and Color

    Would very much like the capability to set font size and color to be used in all chats instead having to reset it for each individual chat every time a message is typed.

    Thank you!

  13. Create a Personal Home Page in Teams

    It would be great if users could create their own personal landing page (similar to SharePoint). If I could set this up, I'd be able to see my feed, calendar, and Team Channels on my personal landing page.

  14. Full desktop version to iPadOS

    Since iPadOS and iPads now are more and more becoming a standard workplace for many.

    Please make the iPadOS version more intune with the full desktop version of Mac/Win. I know the web version can be used. But it’s still not to par with the desktop variants. At the moment I am toggling between the app and the web version in some of my workloads. I would be much more effecient if everything was available in the iPadOS-app.

  17. Room mode

    Have a "room mode" in the desktop version of the app.

    Currently we rely on a meeting room computer with a consumer Skype account. We will inevitably one day get a proper room system, but in the meantime we already have what we need equipment wise... just not software-wise.

    It would be useful if you could setup a desktop installation of MS Teams as a meeting room so that staff do not need to login with their accounts (which they would then forget to log out of), or have dedicated meeting room users.

    Maybe this is already possible and I've…

  18. deleting a chat

    the whole idea of a chat system is to get rid of email clutter. Now I have 55 running chats of clutter? why can't you just quickly get rid of old chats?

    Additionally, why isn't my organization an immediate contact add (we're a small company of 20-25)...seems like a basic need.
