  1. Option to control default action of [Edit] button on Word/Excel/PowerPoint viewer

    I want to control default action of [Edit] button on Word/Excel/PowerPoint viewer in Teams. [Edit] button default action is "edit in Teams" now, but I want to set default action to "edit in Word/Excel/PowerPoint(desktop client)".

  2. Broadcast / Announce to all Teams users on Teams APP

    Teams is a hub of O365 tools, then sometimes we would like to inform current trouble status or new feature to all Teams users at once. If we can show announce banner on top of Teams app, like under search window, it would be more helpful for all Teams users and Teams admins.

  3. Make Contacts its own page WITHOUT the last chat in the background. Able to set as the default page to leave open all day - like Skype did.

    Teams takes up too much of the screen when not in use. Skype was much better with its list of My Group and Favorites, so you could see status at a glance... AND it could be a very narrow profile open all day on the screen. Teams default footprint is TOO BIG.

    AND don't display the last chat in the background!!

    Give function to end a Chat and give a clear background so the last chat isn't sitting in the background hours after you are done - this is extremely annoying and a problem in an open office where people…

  4. I want you to smoothly add equipment at the meeting

    It is the operation when you make a reservation of the meeting from the client.
    You need to add the equipment mailbox from "Invite users".
    This operation is more inconvenient than when creating a meeting in Outlook.
    We want you to be able to search and add from your address book etc.

  5. Would like the ability to copy a customized hyper link into Teams that will open into a locally installed application.

    I have customer who want to get ability to copy a customized hyper link into Teams that will open into a locally installed application.

  6. Add non-Team site Sharepoint page as tab without additional login

    We have sites that users would like at their finger tips but organizationally belong outside of the Team site. When I add the sharepoint page as a website tab it requires the user to login when using the desktop version of Teams.

  7. I want to use only the "Like" icon

    In addition to "Like", icons such as "Heart" and "Laughing" have been added.
    I want to restrict the use of the "Heart".
    I want to optionally set whether to hide or not.

  8. Remove the emoticon popup when the mouse hovers over a message

    A recent update changed the desktop app such that hovering over a message pops up a selection of emoticons, presumably to react to a message. I think any thinking individual would appreciate this distraction not being there. I sincerely hope its removed in a near future update.

  9. Teams Operating System

    would be great to have an "oriented to work" Operating System, based on Microsoft Teams. TeamsOS. With an internal Internet browser. Think about it.

  10. Eliminate Teams landing page in Edge asking if want to download desktop app and eliminate notification quiery popup

    I use the web app not the desktop app so I can have multiple instances open. Everytime I go to the teamsite in Edge, it asks if I want the desktop app. I just want the browser to open with my Teamsites.

    Also, the popup asking if I want notifications turned on continues to popup. Eliminate this popup.

    Thank you

  12. call history

    Under Skype for business full call history was recorded in Outlook. Since implementing Teams this feature no longer is available. Introducing again this connection with outlook for logging full call history in outlook (or other application) would be very convenient. At present history is limited to 28 days which is not sufficient

  14. Unreliable desktop client

    We have deployed MS Teams with SCCM.

    We allow the software to auto update but this currently gives us a few challenges:

    1. Teams client closes multiple times a day, it remains in the notification areas until mouse over and then disappears and must be relaunched.

    2. Teams disappears from the system - presumably because it tries to auto update and fails leaving the user with no Teams install.

    3. A relatively new message in a grey bar at the top of the client notifying the user to update to continue using Team and contact their administrator.

    These behaviours are…

  15. Go back to skype

    You had to ruin a great idea. There was nothing wrong with Skype. Why did you scrap it with your silly 3rd grade solution?

  16. So far not happy AT ALL with Teams/Skype debacle. Syncing is happening, Teams won't finish installing on some systems, many messages missed

    Need to fix the issues with Teams not completing installs, messages getting lost between Skype and Teams users, and the list goes on. There appear to be serious issues getting Teams rolled out on PCs where Skype for Business is installed. In some cases Teams gets installed, but can't configure, and closes itself when it tries to open. Teams effects the Skype interface to the Contact groups no longer appear, and leaves user with no way to continue reaching out, as Skype gets broken and Teams won't start.

  17. Bring the Android UI to Windows (and Mac) Desktop (a new take on the "compact view" request)

    I really like Teams, but the one reason I still keep Skype for Business running is the small window size. It occurred to me while using Teams on my Android phone that there is already an ideal solution to this issue. Put a toggle into the desktop app to allow the use of the android style layout that shows the Teams tools that cover 90% of my needs (chat and team browser tab) in a window that is roughly equal to a Skype conversation window. Then allow me to toggle back to the full desktop view when I need to…

  18. Reduce vast white space in the desktop view

    Reduce vast amount of white space to enable to teams to occupy a small amount of a desktop screen.
    Minimising the text size is not a solution to this
    Have option for latest message to show on top not at the bottom
    Have message alert show actual message or part of it, rather than just alert to message, as in the start of an email, or a tweet, to minimise useless clicking on non-useful messages that show just "new message" where large numbers of people are messaging in teams

  20. Barras superiores

    hola, las barras superiores son muy anchas y no aportan contenido ni funcionalidad a la aplicación.
    Es más, el titulo de la aplicacion de word que estoy usando se encuentra duplicado.
