  1. 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…

  2. 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…

  3. 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!

  4. Fix Edit in Word/Excel - Currently not working

    When you have saved an excel/ word file in files section in teams then you click on the file and edit. The edit in word/excel online works but the edit in word/excel does nothing and does not open word/excel to edit the document. Desktop teams version is Microsoft Teams Version 1.0.00.10302 (64-bit). It was last updated on 4/21/17.

  5. 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.

  6. Teams will auto create shortcut on desktop and duplicate shortcuts will be synced to OneDrive Known folder

    The problem is that a separate shortcut is created on each and every machine that a user logs on to. With OneDrive known folder move enabled in the environment, users of multiple machines end up accumulating a heap of duplicate Teams desktop shortcuts.

  7. 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.

  8. Popout chat should allow calling, video, and screen sharing like normal chat window

    The popout chat window should allow calling, video, and screen sharing just like the normal full Teams client window. It is not efficient to have to go back to the Teams client and search for a person to be able to start a call, video, or screen share from someone you are chatting with in a popout window.

    Thank you!

  9. 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?

  11. 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.

  12. When using the Teams Desktop App, the App should not prompt you to download the Team Desktop App. Seriously, how narcissistic can an App be?

  14. Microsoft Teams - Include Downloads Manager

    When downloading multiple, large files - the current Teams desktop client DOES NOT show a 'progress bar'...only a toast notification when the files have finished downloading.

    Include a "Downloads" or "Download Manager" button on the left side that shows downloads in progress, and that allows incomplete downloads to be 're-downloaded'.

    At this time, there is no way for me to know if everything downloaded without comparing files in my 'Downloads' folder to the files in the channel (slow, inefficient).

  15. Responding to specific messages

    On the phone app, we can respond to specific messages and send voice notes. Can this be added to the PC version?

  17. 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.

  20. 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.
