  1. Improved ability to handle Images and Media

    Images load one by one and the process of doing it is very slow. It would be nice if you could paste several images and/or media to have it end up with something like the attached where you see a preview and can expand to see the full size, or download it.

    This process is also especially painful on the ios mobile app (not sure on android), but if it handled images more like other mobile text apps that would be much improved.

  2. Restore window to same monitor it was minimized on.

    I have 3 monitors, the Left 2 are portrait while the right is landscape.
    The primary monitor is the landscape one on the right.

    I place Teams on my left-most monitor. If I minimize, then go to restore it later, it returns to the right monitor instead of the same monitor it was minimized on.

  3. Better pen support for desktop client

    Pen input (scrolling,tapping,etc.) does not work well and freezes the window for a couple moments.

  5. Improve Skype for Business

    What an absolute state you've left Skype for Business in. You don't even check the huge amount of negative feedback you have on the forum for it.

    You've focused all your efforts on developing a new product while your current product is just ignored, so in the meantime there is nothing to fill the gap.

    Fix Skype for Business please.

  7. Screenshare Drops during Meetings when Moving Between Applications

    When share desktop is used during a meeting, participants continue to see the old screen when the presenter switches to a different application. This happens irrespective of the application or whether the move is to/from MS Teams and an application e.g. moving from PowerPoint to a web browser or from Word to MS Teams. The workaround is for the presenter to stop presenting and then start to share their desktop again by selecting the relevant window. This isn't a great experience for the participants and breaks the flow of the meeting/presentation.

  9. Chat Acessibility

    I use a team that has website tabs for our daily work such as: ticketing system, reports, dashboards, intranet sit and other dashboards. It is really hard to use Teams as an all encompassing digital workspace when I have to get out of the team tab website to chat with anyone. If we could open chat in new tab or have the ability to split screen with chat and teams that would be AMAZING! LOVE TEAMS and am excited to watch it grow and continually improve.

  11. Will Teams have the ability to show who is online and offline on any given channel?

    If Teams can add an option to show member status on a optional right side channel. This would be very helpful. As it is right now, you have no idea who is on or offline or if the correct people are included in a channel.

  14. desktop app vs non desktop app

    I uploaded documents prior to downloading the desktop app- now I can only see the documents I uploaded via the app in the app, but if I go directly into 365, the documents are not visible. why can I not see all my documents regardless of how I uploaded the documents?

  15. Teams is the DUMBEST calling app ever on Windows DESKTOP

    This NEEDS fixing ASAP.

    On the desktop, I hear ringing. I click on Teams. Nothing visible. Nothing in notication area. Finally I click through the users until I see under ONE SPECIFIC USER that there is a call answer option.

    This is user design where the goal is to MAKE LIFE SO HARD NOONE WANTS TO USE IT.

    Please change teams so when ringing, you can at least see the ringing ANY TIME you click on the app. Even better is if a notification comes up in Windows to just answer the call.

  16. Problems sharing desktop

    We have been actively using Teams for the last 4 weeks, I have received a few reports of users being unable to share desktops whilst in a call, the option is available, but when they click the button, nothing happens, no error messages or warnings. After hanging up and re-connecting they are then able to share desktops. Has anyone else had this issue, apologies if this is the incorrect place to raise this issue.

  19. Half of my screen goes missing

    sometimes it scrolls down and I get a gigantic footer that takes half of my screen. The upper half still shows the content but when i scroll only the upper part scrolls the content. I have to ctrl +R to fix the problem temporary.

    I can share a screenshot if that helps...

  20. Reply like in WhatsApp in Teams desktop app

    t would be really helpful if you could reply to a specific message within a conversation or thread by clicking on the box and pressing reply like in WhatsApp in Desktop / Laptop (Win 10) app.

    This feature is already there in ios & android
