  1. Disable hardware acceleration via GPO

    I know you can check the box in settings to turn off hardware acceleration but i would be nice if we could do this globally via GPO or even a reg key.

  2. Kein Klingelton über die Lautsprecher zu hören, wenn ein Kopfhörer eingestöpselt ist.

    Es ist kein Klingelton über die Lautsprecher zu hören, wenn ein Kopfhörer eingestöpselt ist. Dadurch werden eingehende Nachrichten und Anrufe kaum wahrgenommen. Dies ist ein deutlicher Rückschritt gegenüber Skype.

  3. 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.

  4. Microsoft Teams Notifications position

    Add an option to let user change the position of the Mictrosoft Teams notifications on MacOS. Currently it's only on top right which is so annoying, because it overlaps the other apps important buttons!

  6. Desktop Icon Creation Duplication with OneDrive Known Folder Move

    In a shared computer environment, an admin may choose to install the Team Machine Wide Installer MSI.

    Teams is then installed at every user logonif it doesn't exist.

    "%ProgramFiles%\Teams Installer\Teams.exe --checkInstall --source=default"

    Is put in the following key

    HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run

    This presents an issue when using OneDrive Known Folder Move. When a new user logs on to a PC, OneDrive has its own installation and update process. The Teams installer will start and finish before OneDrive has installed, updated and initiated Known Folder Move for the new user profile.

    Teams will create a desktop icon in the %USERPROFILE%\Desktop shell…

  8. 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.

  11. 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 :)

  12. Stay unread till pressed read botton

    When I go to Activity and press one of the new mention will automatically mark read on another thread's mention in the same channel which losts my attention. It is good to have a READ botton on the mention itself to manually mark as read, especially the mention was @ to me.

  13. Ability to allow screen sharing by multiple participants at the same time simultaneously with split screen

    As more and more businesses are relying on Teams for carrying out day to day business activities and collaborative working hence the ability to share screen by multiple participants(or at least two) simultaneously in split screen mode would be really handy as it becomes very cumbersome when participants have to switch again and again in case of side by side comparison or review.

  15. How about a Microsoft Teams Insider/Preview Program?

    One of the main reasons I loved that our business was encouraged to move from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams, was because of the improvements based on user feedback that have been implemented since Teams was announced. As well as seeing the many items and features coming to the application. I love knowing that Microsoft is listening to people's feedback.

    As the IT Manager of a small business, I also play the role of "cheerleader" trying to get people excited about the products they use, especially when many of them don't like change. But when change is for the…

  18. Multiple Windows for Channels

    I would love to see the option that you just rolled out for chats to be added to channels as well. To be able to open a new window for the channels you use the most would be awesome!!! It would be great to be able to resize the seperate windows you open as well.

  19. Remove the emoticon popup when the mouse hovers over a message

    A recent update changed the desktop app such that hovering over a message pops up a selection of emoticons, presumably to react to a message. I think any thinking individual would appreciate this distraction not being there. I sincerely hope its removed in a near future update.
