  1. Desktop sharing should allow a certain, definable area of the screen to be shared

    Desktop sharing should allow a certain, definable area of the screen to be shared, for example the left half, the right third, the first quarter at the top left, and so on.

    Reason:

    I work with a large screen and high resolution at my workplace. Other team users use smaller screens with lower resolutions. Accordingly, you can't see things so well on my shared screen. Releasing just a single application, on the other hand, is too little, because you would always have to laboriously change the released application. So it would be easier to share half or 2/3 of your…

  5. 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!

  6. 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).

  7. 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.

  8. render email hyperlinks in desktop/web client

    This works in the mobile app. When writing out an email address, either automatically hyperlink it or allow for the ability to hyperlink it in the formatting

  9. 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. Volume controls needed

    Volume is a major issue.
    1. Make a volume adjuster for the program and team meetings separate. Right now, Teams meeting starts at the max volume of the system sound and the volume adjuster adjusts the system sound.
    2. Make a volume adjustment for each person in the meeting, making them louder or lower.
    3. Make a way to lower or raise your own mic
    4. Make a push to talk button. IE press a button like a radio. Yes you have a mute button, but a bind key makes a lot more sense. This of course would be optional.

  14. 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?

  15. Edit Displayed User Names

    It would be more convenient if we could customize user display name to allow better identification of individuals. For external contacts, email addresses are currently displayed and cannot be edited to reflect the contact's name.

  17. Keyboard shortcut to toggle Full Screen in meeting

    I would like a shortcut that toggles full screen on and off. The GUI interface to do this is awkward. Full screen is important with someone else is screen-sharing in a meeting, so their screen is not shrunk to an unreadable size.

    (On Microsoft's web page it says to use Ctrl-Shift-F, but on my Teams app that is mapped to "open filter" and there is no mapping for full screen.)

    I am using Teams 1.3.00.3564 on Windows 10.

  18. Allow remote control to work after UAC prompt

    When you start screen sharing session and this is happening regardless of OS platform. When user that is sharing screen is on Windows machine if at any point during screen share user get prompted by UAC to execute something as administrator, anyone who is remotely controlling machine at that point loses control. After this prompt remote user can still move mouse but cannot click anything and what has to happen is you have to stop sharing and start new screen share.

    What should happen is if you remote controlling someone's machine through desktop sharing and UAC comes up, after that…

  19. 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.

  20. Reply function to messages in Desktop App

    In the Teams Mobile version we get option to reply to each message in the chat. But this option is not available in Desktop App.
    Its weird that Mobile version has more feature than Desktop feature.
