  3. 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.

  4. Recording video from host computer while recording a Team Meeting

    When hosting a Teams meeting to record a live group training, we often share video of the computer's camera. We want to be able to record the full screen video and not have it just be a quadrant of the full screen.

  7. 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.

  8. Excessive CPU load

    Teams application is obviously having some kind of an issue, because when it's not in use and minimized to tray, the app loads CPU with 30% or even more. I just completely uninstalled it and will only plan to use it through browser. If it's not mandatory by my company, I wouldn't use it at all.

  9. Show other contact numbers when clicking the Phone button

    On the Windows Desktop App, when clicking on the Handset Icon it shows only Teams and Mobile number. It should show all the contact numbers setup for the user on ad.

  12. Pin a wiki page to the sidebar and/or open in a separate tab

    When working on a wiki page for any substantial amount of time, you may need to interact with people via a channel or chat. It's pretty painful to go back to the channel and wiki, find the page you were working on again... then go answer a chat and have to re-locate that all over again. The "back" button isn't a solution because if you've answered several chats then it takes you back through the whole history.

    I'd like to be able to pin a page to the sidebar or possibly open it in a new tab in the desktop…

  14. can I use Chrome (chrome.exe --app=https://teams.microsoft.com) instead of Desktop app

    Teams Desktop isn't really Teams app; it's just Electron (Chromium?).

    In an enterprise environment with roaming profiles, it is impractical; it installs per-user; it updates per-user.

    Teams is a PWA.

    I can use Chrome directly and get similar results;

    chrome.exe --app=https://teams.microsoft.com
    Operationally, this is vastly superior;

    no need to install or update Teams app

    in an environment with roaming profiles that are deleted at logoff, the computer becomes much more responsive (in the user's perception).
    Chrome is already deployed on all computers and is already self-updating
    If people use Chrome as well, will it "share" the application memory, reducing…

    Guests separated from members.
    Add filter columns to make it easier to manage.
    Add groups to make it easier to communicate with Team without creating channels.

  16. 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.
