  1. screen size is to big

    The screen only lets you make it so small and it still takes up most of the page vs just a tiny section allowing you to still see and read the messages without stopping you from working like Skype.

  2. I want to use only the "Like" icon

    In addition to "Like", icons such as "Heart" and "Laughing" have been added.
    I want to restrict the use of the "Heart".
    I want to optionally set whether to hide or not.

  3. Teams Operating System

    would be great to have an "oriented to work" Operating System, based on Microsoft Teams. TeamsOS. With an internal Internet browser. Think about it.

  4. Eliminate Teams landing page in Edge asking if want to download desktop app and eliminate notification quiery popup

    I use the web app not the desktop app so I can have multiple instances open. Everytime I go to the teamsite in Edge, it asks if I want the desktop app. I just want the browser to open with my Teamsites.

    Also, the popup asking if I want notifications turned on continues to popup. Eliminate this popup.

    Thank you

  5. Bring the Android UI to Windows (and Mac) Desktop (a new take on the "compact view" request)

    I really like Teams, but the one reason I still keep Skype for Business running is the small window size. It occurred to me while using Teams on my Android phone that there is already an ideal solution to this issue. Put a toggle into the desktop app to allow the use of the android style layout that shows the Teams tools that cover 90% of my needs (chat and team browser tab) in a window that is roughly equal to a Skype conversation window. Then allow me to toggle back to the full desktop view when I need to…

  6. non-default ringtone selection does not stick - Desktop

    In the Settings you can (it would seem) select a different ringtone for incoming calls. I have done this numerous times, and it always reverts back to Default.
    You can set a new ringtone, close settings, open settings, and it is back to Default. It doesn't stick at all.

  7. Chatting would be easier to read if my answers appeared just under the other persons and not jogged over to the right.

    Maybe you could give people the option to have it appear as it is now or more left justified like when you’re writing a document.

  8. Simple client

    You should release a simple Client for customers that are only using this feature for videoconferencing/Meetings
    I personaly think that the Teams Client is to complicated for the average user to use in general.
    Also had a lot of issues With tenants that have been upgraded and have misses Meetings With external customers due to the fact that they are not able to contact external Clients in S4B.

  9. Incoming call notification

    I'm using a lot of head set, but not all the time. Head set is connected to USB all the time.

    I would like to hear something like ringtone also from desktop/laptop, when I'm not wearing head set.

  10. Do not display Contacts | Favorites unless the user actually has Favorites

    Screen real-estate is valuable. Taking up space with something that a user doesn't use causes excessive scrolling. Forcing a user to give up space to Contacts | Favorites when they don't use Favorites within Contacts causes loss of productivity, frustrates the user and costs the company real money.

    Do not show "Favorites" under Contacts unless the user actually marks a contact as a Favorite.

  13. Horizontal Line Separating Team List or Channels List in Favorites

    I would like to add horizontal lines in different colors to my list of Teams and Channels in Favorites to group them for quick reference. It could just be a line that I can add between two teams or two channels like I would do if I had a red pencil.

  16. share anonymously

    I would like for the users to be able to create anonymous links to files and folders from within the Teams interface.
    It is already possible to have anonymous links by opening the document collection with Sharepoint or Onedrive.
    I would like Teams to provide the same feature.
    Thanks

  17. Taskbar Icon similar to Outlook and Visio in color and shape

    I use tiny taskbar icons on the desktop and Teams in color and shape is too similar to Outlook and Visio when all are open. Can you be more creative?

  19. More apps desktop

    Expand desktop apps tabs.

    In the desktop toolbar (left) there is 5 default apps, and a 'More Apps' ellipsis.

    This is followed by heaps of whitespace below the ellipsis. The extra apps (or at least user configurable) should be put in here too.

    This is particularly useful for planner, as you may be in multiple teams/boards but you want to look at your assigned tasks, to do this currently you need to do at least two clicks.

    It's not the end of the world, but it is annoying.

  20. be able to disable graphics hardware acceleration

    Some laptop docking stations have graphics adapters that don't work well with some apps: disabling the hardware acceleration usually solves this. The Teams aop needs to support this as well - or if it does, make the settings much easier to find.
