  1. Work on document and chat simultaneously

    It is not easy to view chats and work on a document simultaneously. I can't say how many times I've had to close the document I'm working on to go to a team chat, to respond to something, then spend five minutes getting back to the file to start working on it. I don't know how you fix this per se, perhaps be able to have multiple "tabs" open or perhaps be able to do split screen, or maybe be able to pull the chats up as an overlay that we see with HTML5 so often, all of these might…

  2. Search within each channel

    Search option within each channel just like it's there on Yammer. Within each group you have a separate search option

  3. Need flexibility to move the tool bar to the side or somewhere not on top of presentation

    The current tool bar has been problematic when I need to complete screen shots. I know I can make it disappear by double clicking the screen but if I move mouse it reappears which is not ideal if I am multitasking or trying to do a screen shot. Hoping you can allow users to move or add toolbar outside of the screen.

  4. 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.

  7. Flip my vignette view - its a video, not a mirror!

    I should be seeing the same video image which the other participants are seeing of me, not my mirror image. It confuses when using gestures to describe and define.

  8. Control team visibility with admin

    Infrequently used teams are moved to Hidden Teams.
    If you move to Hidden Teams, you may also make new posts.
    However, members are missed because they are not notified.
    Team members need to look at this.
    Therefore, we hope that the administrator will implement a function to move from [Hidden Team] to [Your Team].

  9. Have a background for webmeetings in Teams, so maybe a logo or company name appears behind the company people in the Teams webmeeting.

    Have a background for webmeetings in Teams, so maybe a logo or company name appears behind the company people in the Teams webmeeting. Would this been done through Themes? I know there are 3 Themes by default which can be changed

  10. Display Contacts Status

    It would be nice to be able to shrink the window size down to skinny box or toolbar that shows your contacts and their status' without the chat behind them. Kind of like how Skype does it, using less desktop real estate.

  12. mute outlook notifications when in a teams call

    I have been involved in a few Teams calls lately but when I have Outlook open and emails arrive, the notification sound still sounds and is audible on the Teams calls.

    All notification sounds, even those from other programs, should be muted when you are on a Teams call.

  13. Pop out audio and video calls to a separate screen for MacOS

    Lot of times there is need to see what is being presented in a Teams call on one screen (or part of a screen) and still continue to use Teams in another screen.

    Allow users to pop out audio and video calls to a separate screen for MacOS

  14. Remote access with Teams

    Hello, my name is Djalma I work with IT support. I use Teams application in my work and I think it's very good. It would be great if it had the functionality for remote access between participants.

  16. Teams desktop app does not have locked out option

    MS teams desktop app does not have locked out option to lock teams app. It is very easy to see chat history by someone else when you leave your PC. So, I have to lock pc or log out teams every time. It is very highly personal security risk. Why MS teams doesn't have this feature but other app has?

  18. Microsoft teams Desktop should allow to add multiple accounts like pidgin or trillian. The desktop version doesn't allow it as of now.

    Microsoft teams Desktop should allow to add multiple accounts like pidgin or trillian. The desktop version doesn't allow it as of now. Like I should be able to add client and my own company Microsoft account in teams and should be able to communicate with both seamlessly. This is a priority requirement for people like me who are in consulting world and working with client. As of now I use client teams in desktop and my company teams in browser ( but it sucks).

  19. Permit replies to specific portion of the conversation via the computer

    Currently replies via the mobile apps permit users to reply to specific portions of a conversation. This is very good as it provide context to that statement.
    This function is not available when replying via the computer.
    Appreciate the developer's consideration. Thank you.

  20. Ability to copy images / text

    Ability to copy images from Teams conversation into a word document, CTRL + C and CTRL + V do not work, this is so standard between other Microsoft applications that it is scary not to be able to do this.
