  1. Swap the keyboard shortcuts for slash commands and shortcuts

    In the latest version, the following two shortcuts feel like they are the wrong way around:


    • Show Keyboard Shortcuts (Alt + /)

    • List Slash Commands (Alt + K)

    This is made more obvious due to the fact that Alt + K opens the search bar with the slash pre-inserted.

    Please consider swapping these shortcuts around, as they would appear to make more sense than the current setup.

  3. Can there be an address list, like Skype uses? Instead of the entire screen.

    Can there be an address list, like Skype uses? Instead of the entire screen. Remove the whiteboard on the right of the address list.

  4. By Preference, hide your Banner "Take MS Teams with you on the go"

    This banner is a waste of screen space and the user should not have to hide this over and over again.

  7. why can't we share desktops with team mates

    There is not an option to share screens so you can do a demonstration or just show processes.

  9. When opening a file in a tab, the content is not zoomable. as users have different resolution settings, zooming is key

    Zoomable content.

    When opening a tab with for example an excel list, the content is not zoomable. as users have different resolution settings, not everone sees the full content, a zoom function would be helpful.

  10. Temporarily keep edit mode after chat post

    After posting a chat, it'd be handy if without going to the options to edit we could just make a correction then and there. It only needs to stay in edit mode for seconds and then user should use the options to access edit.

  11. See people/contacts on ribbon

    In order to see people/contacts I have to navigate to chat then new chat. A better design would be to have a people on the main ribbon. If i wanted to check a person/contacts status it would not make any sense that I have to click new chat.

  13. Pasted Images should be clickable for viewing at original size.

    When I paste an image it shrinks. When I click it, it should show or render itself in the original size. Otherwise the pasted image can be useless if content is not perceivable. Confluence does this nicely.

  14. Hyperlink preview is truncated

    When a hyperlink is posted Teams snips and only shows a small part. For example if a link to a Dilbert cartoon is posted (eg; http://dilbert.com/strip/2015-10-17) only the middle frame is shown along with text from the first frame.

    Slack just shows the entire cartoon which means people can read it all at a glance.

  15. Bring back way to check version number in Teams on Windows Desktop

    Not sure why it was removed, but it is helpful to know the version number installed on a machine when there are issues. If it is still in there, I've no idea where it got moved to. I cannot tell you which version this is happening in, because the menu to do so was removed.

    we have this!  ·  swatijha responded

    Please click on your image at bottom left and it should have ‘About’ as an option under it. About should show the version your are on.

    Thanks

  16. Have reply feature on desktop

    There is reply feature on mobile app. So basically I can select a message sent by someone and hit reply. On desktop version I cannot do that. It would be neat to have that feature so that when I am chatting with multiple people in a group I created. I can hit reply from options (not through channel)

  17. Ctrl+J should open Files so you can see the file that was downloaded

    Ctrl+J is used in all major browsers to open the list of downloaded files. When you click a link/file in teams that results in a download, it is instinct to hit Ctrl+J to get to the file download list. Please add this shortcut key to flip to the either Recents or Downloads page of the Files rail app.

  19. Need to have new message notification without displaying content.

    It is true that banners will be suppressed when I am presenting, But what about the entire team sitting together and seeing one monitor ? I don't have any option to Hide the banner content.

    When I Hide it, it doesn't show any indication of new message. I want to get notification that a new message came without displaying the entire content. It would be nice to have banners without displaying the content. Otherwise just a highlight on the minimized tab also will work.
    But now,as soon as I switch off banners, nothing comes as an indication for new message.…

  20. chats in taskbar

    It would be very nice to have access to direct chats from my taskbar, as other chat apps do. It is annoying to have to click 3 times to find active chats when I'm used to 1.
