  2. Multiple windows on multiple monitors

    Teams needs to support multiple monitors and the ability to have different windows of teams on different monitors. Like if I join a meeting or I'm on a call and someone is presenting, I want that on monitor 1, but I want the Teams main windows on monitor 2 so that I can still chat with someone else, or chat in a team channel. Skype has this ability and it works great

  3. Desktop icon keeps coming back

    Seems like whenever Teams does an auto-update, a shortcut is always put on my desktop.

    Stop. Doing. This.

  5. Integrate Outlook Categories

    I would love the ability to use categories I've created in Outlook for files and meetings in Teams, and have those categories carry from one app to the other, no matter which app the category was originally assigned in.

  7. Secondary (Multiple) accounts support

    I work for 3 companies as a consultant and each have their own teams account. I have no way to interact with all 3 at the same time on desktop. On android mobile I can but switching between accounts is stupid and tedious. Multiple account should just show merged content from multiple accounts with a visual direrantiatior between accounts on messages itself. Similar how Outlook handles multiple accounts via All mail folder.

  8. Utility for record desktop screen and share in a Channel without a group meeting

    This utility is for make a record from Desktop and voice, and share in a Channel.
    My users prefer to use Loom software and this is a unsecure way.
    The ideal utility can be:
    1. Start a new recorder
    2. Save the record in Stream channel vinculated with the Team/channel
    3. Share the llink in the channel and also allow to watch the video directly from teams.

    What you think?

    Regards!

  9. Allow rotation of photos in desktop app integrated photo viewer.

    Currently the integrated photo viewer in the desktop app, for viewing attached photos in conversations, does not support photo rotation. Please integrate, thanks!

  10. Multiple applications sharing

    Please let us share multiple applications from MS Teams rather than sharing only one application or only the entire desktop.

    Also, give functionality to switch to another application while you are sharing without stoping screen share and resharing another application

  11. Teams language setting Reset Issue.

    We apply a Japanese language pack to "Teams", however after Teams Update, the display setting reset to the English on base language. So I would like you to fix it.
    This is because English is set as the display language and the translation function of English can not be used.

  13. Screen sharing multiple monitors

    Our company uses 3 or monitors per work station. We used to be able to share our screens with Skype but Teams only allows us to share 1 screen at a time. Would this eventually change?

  14. Integrate with MS PowerToys FancyZones to share a zone instead of the whole screen

    Screen sharing doesn't work well when the user who is sharing has a super ultra wide monitor (49") and the others have ordinary monitors. This forces the user to share applications instead of the screen and the user needs to stop and start sharing for each application switch. It would be great if the user could share a PowerToy FancyZone. Then the user could have a normal sized FancyZone and share it.

  16. Add a screenshot button

    Add a feature to take screenshots directly from the chat window. Like, when you are chating with someone and you need to send a screenshot to the person, you just have to click on the button, like the file, calendar buttons for an example and then MS Team should allow to take screenshot of MS team incase someone wants to take screenshots of MS Team it's self, or if someone wants to minimize MS team, the minimize button should allow to minimize MS team, and then again re-enable the screenshot activity, once desired screenshot is taken, there should be a…

  17. Don't include Teams in task switcher when closed

    When Teams is running it always appears in my task switcher (ALT+TAB), even after I have closed the window.

    Steps:
    1. Open teams and log on.
    2. Make sure your settings are to keep the application running in close.
    3. Close the window. You should no longer see Teams in your taskbar, but you should still see the Teams notification icon in the system tray.
    4. Hold the ALT key and press TAB. Keep the ALT key pressed.

    The next window in the task switcher is Teams, even though the window has been closed.

    Worse yet - if I release…

  18. Improve the Mac App


    • Can't find it in Mac App Store

    • Weird first run experience (very un-Maclike)

    • Didn't know which monitor it was on (had windows on both)

    • Ignored system level text replacements when trying to log in (I have a shortcut for my fairly long email address)

    • Non-standard UI, and not in a good "I hope this takes off" way

    • Non-standard emojis automatically used when you type keyboard ones (e.g. ;) is turned into a horrible animated winking face that looks like it is leering at me... but it also lets you insert system native ones alongside them for added confusion)

    • A garish…

  19. join meeting audio: teams calls phone

    not a new idea but, please allow us to choose more audio options while dialing into a meeting, this was the most useful thing in s4b I could choose to join with skype for bus, not to join audio, or have a handy list of phone numbers for skype to automatically call. please bring that to teams, my users are complaining so much about this little feature,

  20. hover

    Hover Options

    I suggest moving or removing the hover options on chat messages. The problem with them is that when you hover over the message, you can no longer highlight the covered-up portion of the message - which is a problem if you're trying to copy and paste something out of the chatbox, especially on shorter messages.
