  2. Float on Top

    Constantly switching to the Desktop Client's window is incredibly annoying. It desperately needs a thin border, float on top state.

  3. 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

  4. Integrate Teams into Win10 People hub

    Would be good to see Teams integrate into the People Hub (part of the latest Win10 Fall update).

    Currently we can see Email (which, frustratingly, doesn't link to Outlook!), People, and Skype (which we're moving away from) but to link directly to teams members to start a chat and schedule a meeting would be very useful.

  5. import onenotes

    It would be really nice if there was an easy way to import OneNote's into the Teams app. In my experience, the current process is clunky and slow. I ended up just copying over all the pages.

  6. 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.

  8. Get Teams Desktop App Version from Users

    It should be possible to have an overview in the TeamsAdmincenter about the used Team Desktopapp client versions.

    This would be helpful to keep track of which client versions are used by the users. Additionally it would be nice, if this information can also get with powershell for all users in the Tenant.

    When opening your Contact Groups, the groups should be collapsed by default rather than all being expanded

  10. show participants on top part of screen

    When a screen is shared, the participants are currently shown in a film strip on the bottom of the screen. I would like to see the participants at the top of the screen, so that we look each other more in the eye, looking more into the direction of the webcam. For that reason it might also be a good idea to have the speaking participant in the middle.

  11. Remove hyperlink in chat editor

    When pasting text that contains a hyperlink into a chat, the link gets pasted as well. This is fine, but sometimes I don't want the link included (for example, pasting a paragraph from wikipedia will include tons of links that I probably don't care about).

    Any one of the following solutions would be fine:
    1. Adding an editor button for "Remove link"
    2. When editing a link by clicking the "Insert link" button, the pop-up has a "Remove link" option
    3. When editing a link by clicking the "Insert link" button, clicking the X in the "Address" input removes the…

  14. student view on screen

    Teachers need to be able to view more than 9 students at a time, or have the ability to scroll from screen to screen to view students faces. It is impossible to teach a class and only see 9 students

  15. Open Windowed Chat from Notification

    Now that windowed chat is enabled (thank you!!!), provide the option to open chats in their own window from the notification instead of in the main teams interface. If the thread is already open in a window, on click it could focus on the minimized window. That way if I'm working on a file in teams, clicking an incoming chat wouldn't navigate me away from it.

  16. Ability to have a shared Team identity for chat

    I run a HelpDesk and it would be great to have the ability for users to use Teams to chat with a "HelpDesk" ID that could be responded to by support personnel.
    We use a shared mailbox at present and users can find the mailbox in Teams and send a chat message to it, but there's no way to respond in Teams

  20. Integrate teams into file explorer

    It would be great to have teams available within file explorer in the same way that OneDrive is. This would completely revolutionise the way people use file servers and collaborate with Teams. Saving directly to Teams and pulling files directly from Teams without having to figure out or retrain staff who aren’t very IT literate.
