  3. Being able to open more than one Team desktop app window

    In other Windows applications, you can have more than one window (not tab) open. That would be extremely useful.

    Being on a call today that was showing some functionality of Teams was great, but I was unable to easily follow the demo and test it out for myself without the meeting window being minimised to a tiny size!

  6. Startup minimized to task bar only AND don't restore when right clicking

    I am finding 2 annoyances after I moved to Teams away from Skype for Business:

    1: In skype or business I was able to have the app not only startup in the background, but minimized the task bar with no window..

    2: I can manually get teams into that state by having it stay running when closed and closing teams, however anytime I RIGHT click on the tray iccon to access the menu, it auto restores.. it should only auto restore upon either left clicking the icon or triggering action via right click but the right click action should itself…

  9. Cockpit

    In my "Team" I want to be able to create a channel tab that provides links to several other tools and/or websites like a cockpit using tiles. Each tile has an assigned hyperlink that takes me to the tool/website or it opens up in teams directly (preferred). With a hover-over I can see a short description of the tile.

    when someone writes to me on my desktop, the Teams tab in the taskbar starts blinking. I always miss this blinking and therefore miss the message. Can there be a pop-up notification?

  12. Make Contacts its own page WITHOUT the last chat in the background. Able to set as the default page to leave open all day - like Skype did.

    Teams takes up too much of the screen when not in use. Skype was much better with its list of My Group and Favorites, so you could see status at a glance... AND it could be a very narrow profile open all day on the screen. Teams default footprint is TOO BIG.

    AND don't display the last chat in the background!!

    Give function to end a Chat and give a clear background so the last chat isn't sitting in the background hours after you are done - this is extremely annoying and a problem in an open office where people…

  13. I want you to smoothly add equipment at the meeting

    It is the operation when you make a reservation of the meeting from the client.
    You need to add the equipment mailbox from "Invite users".
    This operation is more inconvenient than when creating a meeting in Outlook.
    We want you to be able to search and add from your address book etc.

  14. Add non-Team site Sharepoint page as tab without additional login

    We have sites that users would like at their finger tips but organizationally belong outside of the Team site. When I add the sharepoint page as a website tab it requires the user to login when using the desktop version of Teams.

  15. "Pin to Top" active documents being edited in chat, group chat, or team channel, regardless of what tab you are in

    If I am working in a document in a group chat, but I get a chat message from another person, in order to read that new message, I will lose my place in the current document I'm editing.

    To "get back to work" after reading the other chat message, I have to go back to the other chat and find the document, then click a few times and scroll around to be able to open in edit mode and figure out where I was. This is horribly inefficient, considering how efficient it COULD be -- collaborative editing is the strongest…

  17. Need to be able to re-size the app on-screen

    I would like to be able to resize the app, the same way that Skype for Business can be thinned down.Teams takes up 1/3 of my screen. With Skype for Business, it could be slimmed down to only take up a small portion.
