  1. Teams app window position

    I have multiple screens.
    I open Teams and then move it to another screen.
    When I close Teams and re-open it, it then opens on my main desktop screen again. This did not always happen, in previous versions of teams it would open on the screen it was last on.

    This behaviour seems to change from update to update - almost as if there wasn't proper version control going on.

  2. add more apps

    In the desktop app, I should be able to add more items to the left side of the app panel.

    Unless the option is already there, and I am merely missing it.

  3. Hi, is it possible to setup automatic notification popups in MS Teams when we receive a new chat or any update? If yes, how?

    I'm unable to see any notification popup's with the desktop version of MS Teams. We always have to open up and see the if there is any new chats or anything. I think it's a great idea to implement automatic popup messages to the desktop version.

  6. Logout

    The app logs me out every time i want to use it. The frustrating thing is that my account is linked to a different phone number than the one i use, so i can’t use the app until i get home. There is no other way to log in, no other security steps except for this one. Really unsatisfied

  7. windows-wide shortcut to start or answer phone calls

    I want to switch fully from S4B to MSTeams. In S4B, I use PhoneTools from Estos, to answer phone calls with a single keystroke or to start a phone call. when I have marked a phone number and press the defined hotkey. See: https://www.estos.com/products/phonetools

    So: You should implement the option for a windows wide shortcut/hotkey to start or answer phone calls.

  8. get rid of the bloat

    Make stripped down version that doesn't eat too many computer resources. All I want/need is to post a question in plain text and get an answer

  10. Refresh data across platforms

    When I am using Teams on my phone and then arrive at my desktop, the feeds are not updated. I have to shut down Teams on my Surface, then re-open to get the most recent conversations I just had while on mobile. We should be able to move between mobile and workstation and continue conversations.

  11. office 365 button

    A button to allow people to open the O365 portal/dashboard.

    Teams feels too distant from the portal.

    I see there is the Files section which connects to the One Drive. That offers almost enough functionality. If onedrive/share point was better supported then perhaps that would be enough.

  12. The desktop app is far worse than the website. Stop pushing it.

    It has worse performance. It has drastically more annoying notification behavior and lacks all the features you enjoy in a browser (like extendability or the ability to remove your annoying animated emojis).

    So I really don't see why I need to see a notification banner constantly that tells me about the amazing desktop app.

  13. Let Teams tell users when Skype for business is open (so Teams won't start)

    I had Skype fB open on my desktop and wanted to start Teams. It gave an error message but didn't hint me that Skype and Teams are unable to be active at the same time. Why not anyway?

  14. Add External Link to Navigation

    I would like the ability to add an internet link to the navigation in Teams. My company uses ADP for our payroll. Managers and Supervisors login to approve hours, address missed punches, approve time-off, etc. It would be great if we could add an icon that links to an external website both personally and globally.
    So, where you have the links to Chat, Teams, Meetings, etc. I would like to be able to add the external link there.
    Thanks!

  15. Additional download links for the desktop app.

    On the O365 homepage there's a dropdown menu to install the desktop office suite or any additional apps, but Microsoft Teams is no where to be found. The only links available are for running the browser version.

    Could we get a download link added to one of the O365 pages (with the rest of the apps) or even a button or menu option inside the browser app itself?

    Having some additional links is preferred to the constant prompts received while using the browser version.

  16. alt-[arrows] under "files"

    I heavily use alt-leftarrow and alt-rightarrow when navigating links in Windows Explorer and any browser. I would be delighted to see this same functionality while working in the folder structure of teams.
