  1. Allow client to export my chat messages

    Individual and group chats absolutely has to have the ability to export it out as a word document or such. For a large business sometimes the context of a chat has to be copied out for various reasons and to not have the ability to do that is simply insane. There needs to be an export option (PDF, DOC ECT.) included in chats. Saving one individual message is not adequte.

  4. Desktop app should use much less system memory.

    I installed the desktop app, and it's by far the most memory-hungry program in my system. When I took the screenshot, it was even running in the background. And why are there 4 of them? I'm seriously concerned this will cause performance issues with my computer.

  5. Allow you to share desktop without being in a meeting. Skype allows this feature.

    Allow you to share your desktop without being in a meeting. Skype allows you to share your desktop at anytime. Why do you have to create a meeting to allow the desktop to be shared.

  6. Ability to archive Chat Conversations

    Please add the ability to archive and/or delete conversation history form the Chat conversations. It's terrible to open a chant while sharing a screen and everyone sees your past chats.

  7. Install to Program Files instead of appdata due to blocking EXEs from other locations

    We are implementing AppLocker to block ALL EXEs from running from other locations other than Windows and Program Files. We know we could make an exception, however it is still a vulnerability as users can still alter data in the appdata. In addition, for every user it will have an individual install. I understand the ease of use and profile based configuration that Teams is geared towards, however we would like BOTH options for enterprise and education environments.

  8. Screen Share and capture

    Could you please add the screen share without a audio/video call just like Lync in Teams? And screen capture is much useful in these instant message tools.

  9. Layout Changes

    Allow the layout to be changed vs the fixed layout.

    Even on large displays the layout takes up too much space and much of it is wasted space.

    The navigation tool for the Wiki needs to be able to have a push pin in it so it can stay open so you can navigate without an extra click to open in back up.

  10. Teams window got out the monitor limit if using multiple monitors

    If Teams window is maximized on one of multiple monitors it got out the monitor limit, and you see a little part of teams window on other monitor.
    Annoying :)

  11. Team Dashboard / Landing Page

    When you click on a Team, it would be nice if you got a dashboard for the team / landing page instead of going directly to the "general" channel.

    This would be a great place to roll-up information for activity in the team:
    - recent conversations (from all channels within the team)
    - recent or all documents (similar to the OneDrive landing page, but scoped to the Team
    - search
    - membership list
    - pinned content
    - static content (to post general team information)

  12. The desktop app always freezes

    When I use TEAMs from my desktop it always freezes.

    It’s not the computer, it’s been checked. It happens to my teammates as well.

  13. Do Not Disturb for Calls

    We need the ability to quickly indicate do not disturb for phone calls in teams. Its obnoxious to have spammers interrupt my teams audio calls with the phone ringing.

  14. Use PNG format for small images

    Teams seems to use the JPEG format for all images pasted into it, regardless of the size. This format makes pictures such as screenshots look absolutely horrible, with artefacts going rampant around any text or other sharp edges. A lossless PNG format would be more suited for the task.

  15. Replace Electron app with Native app that runs fast on desktop.

    Desktop Microsoft Teams is, well, basically useless. It is the slowest app I use on any PC. It needs either some MAJOR performance improvements or a complete re-write as a Native app so that it runs fast on PCs.

    Come on guys, you can do better than this!

  16. Markup PDFs in Teams desktop client.

    It would be nice to be able to do live markups of PDFs in Teams channel and/or file areas.

    This would introduce an amazing advantage for a project team working in Teams.

  17. Like button in toast message popup

    Adding a like button in the toast message popup in the bottom right corner would greatly increase the speed at which you can confirm a message/question.

  20. Desktop icon keeps coming back

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

    Stop. Doing. This.
