  1. fat client customization

    Teams is definitively great and we are thinking to use it as "intranet", indeed more as cockpit, for all employee. Therefore it would be great then to customize it with company logo and colors.

  2. 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.

  4. Respect open -g to launch in background on macOS

    The macOS native client ignores the -g parameter in open -g and always launches the app into the foreground, stealing focus. That is, open -g /Applications/Microsoft\ Teams.app should open Teams in the background, and doesn't.

  6. Dual-monitor screen sharing

    So Microsoft is getting rid of Skype for business, which has the option to share multiple screens at once, but they don't have that capability on Microsoft teams. I don't know why this hasn't garnered more attention, but a lot of businesses have agents with dual screens, so this needs to be added.

    They should also make it so you don't have to close the screen share session and open a new one to switch which screen you are sharing, it should just be something that can be switched while in the same screen-share session.

  10. 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…

  11. Add a button to ask the user to share his desktop

    While doing helpdesk, some users dont find the button to share their screen. Could be easier if we can ask him to share it unstead of helping him to find where is the sharing screen button. Thanks

  12. Screen Share of Dual Monitors according to Pointer movement

    If there is no option to share dual monitors at a time, then we can share the monitor of the presenter according to the mouse pointer . And also add pointer access for participants to switch from one screen to another, may be we can add shortcut in keyboard for this.

  14. Hand pop-up shortcut

    Like "mute button" or "hide webcam" on Metting pop-up, create a button "show hands" and notify (or not) when anyone send hand-up. For who is sharing the screen during the meeting it isn't possible to notice (when this pop-up button was "enabled") if someone trying to hand-up. This shortcut, like "mute button" in this pop-up will be amazing!

  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. more options for video resolution.

    the current resolution option of 360 p and 1080p doesn't fulfill all needs. if we use 360 P then video quality becomes very poor and if we make it 1080 then a lot of buffering happens. for 1080 p we easily get exhausted of data if we have a limited data plan. it would a lot of help if we have a option for 480 p and 720 p. I am expecting a good and early response.
    Thank you

  18. Ability to minimize/hide chat content area

    I would like to be able to hide/minimize the chat content area when I am not actively using chat, so the overall Teams window could narrower. When I'm not actively chatting, I only want to see my list of contacts or the list of recent chats, but as it is now, I always see the content of the last chat I selected or participated in on the right side of the Teams window.

  19. Mouse over Teams windows taskbar icon to see active chats and/or active meetings

    When Teams is running and you have multiple active chats and/or an active meeting, it would be nice to mouse-over the Windows Taskbar icon and be able to select any active chats or meetings in progress. This way you can quickly jump between them without having to navigate back through Teams directly. Maybe show the last 3 chat windows in the past X amount of minutes, and if there is an active meeting in progress also show that. Having different pop-out windows is different than what I'm asking. This way, even with pop-out windows, you can quickly switch between them…
