  1. 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.

  2. 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…

  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. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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 :)

  13. 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.

  15. 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…

  18. 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.

  19. 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…

  20. Force a specific image as the default Teams custom background

    While I can now change my teams background to an image I specify (by coping it into this folder: %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Teams\Backgrounds\Uploads), our company would like to set a default image for every teams user on their PC. Doesn't seem possible yet to do this. But I was thinking if we set a group policy to drop the image we want in everyone’s Teams 'Uploads' folder, then perhaps there is a registry setting in teams that we could force to use our custom image?
