    • 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.

      • 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.

        • 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.

          • Teams Windows client greatly increases roaming profile size (Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams)

            On Windows, Teams is available as an end user self-install app. The app installs to AppData\Local, so not part of the roaming profile. However, it stores *LOTS* of content in AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams.

            Our organisation uses roaming profiles and profile size policy; users are beginning to exceed a [very generous!] limit, and Teams is a big cause of this.

            Please fix!

            • 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.

              • desktop app not reconnecting

                Desktop app does not do a very good at reconnecting if it drops connection to wireless or network and then reconnects. It will try a couple of times, but then fails.

                  • 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.

                          • Stop need to restart Teams when PC is intially offline but connecting shortly

                            we run MS Team in our organization and one of the things that really bugs me is how the startup when PC starts is handled. A good example of handle the startup is Skype for business if you do not initially have a network connection or lets say your organization requires you connect over proxy which is initially unavailable when outside the network Skype doesn't care. It keeps checking and once you have a connection you are online. In worse case you just need to hit sign-in. MS Teams on the other hand is completely different. Although I have it…

                              • Retry login when network is available

                                On my laptop I'm behind a proxy that requires a vpn connection. When the app starts it can't find an internet connection since I haven't had the time to login to the vpn. My experience is that the app won't retry the login when the network is available, I have to restart the app. Applications like Slack, Outlook and Spotify (or rather most applications) continuosly checks for an available connection and tries to login. Chrome even reloads open tabs when a connection becomes available.

                                  the column that list the different teams should be able to be resized to user liking. I understand some apps let you maximize the screen but then to switch tabs and whatnot you have to minimize to switch to another one.

                                    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.

                                    • Have 2 Separate Teams Applications Open Simultaneously

                                      It would be nice to be able to have 2 separate teams application open simultaneously that way I can have one for chatting and one to view a channel. It would make it easier than having to click back and forth between the two to be able to communicate to both. The other option would be to be able to split the application to be able to view Teams and Chat at the same time.

                                        I want to share webs from Microsoft Edge to Microsoft Teams.
                                        Microsoft Edge's SHARE button can share current web page to some APP, easy, quick way.
                                        so, I hope to share web pages from Microsoft Edge's share button to Microsoft Teams channels.

                                        • 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 :)
