  1. Desktop icon keeps coming back

    Seems like whenever Teams does an auto-update, a shortcut is always put on my desktop.

    Stop. Doing. This.

  2. resize the team list column to custom size

    the column that list the different teams should be able to be resized to user liking. I understand some apps let you maximize the screen but then to switch tabs and whatnot you have to minimize to switch to another one.

  3. Stop need to restart Teams when PC is intially offline but connecting shortly

    we run MS Team in our organization and one of the things that really bugs me is how the startup when PC starts is handled. A good example of handle the startup is Skype for business if you do not initially have a network connection or lets say your organization requires you connect over proxy which is initially unavailable when outside the network Skype doesn't care. It keeps checking and once you have a connection you are online. In worse case you just need to hit sign-in. MS Teams on the other hand is completely different. Although I have it…

  4. Retry login when network is available

    On my laptop I'm behind a proxy that requires a vpn connection. When the app starts it can't find an internet connection since I haven't had the time to login to the vpn. My experience is that the app won't retry the login when the network is available, I have to restart the app. Applications like Slack, Outlook and Spotify (or rather most applications) continuosly checks for an available connection and tries to login. Chrome even reloads open tabs when a connection becomes available.

  5. Share from Microsoft Edge

    I want to share webs from Microsoft Edge to Microsoft Teams.
    Microsoft Edge's SHARE button can share current web page to some APP, easy, quick way.
    so, I hope to share web pages from Microsoft Edge's share button to Microsoft Teams channels.

    The view window is too wide. It should be made to enable to change to thin window size by user.

  8. Have 2 Separate Teams Applications Open Simultaneously

    It would be nice to be able to have 2 separate teams application open simultaneously that way I can have one for chatting and one to view a channel. It would make it easier than having to click back and forth between the two to be able to communicate to both. The other option would be to be able to split the application to be able to view Teams and Chat at the same time.

  9. Make it easier to Minimize or resize the favorites column

    The Favorites Column (I believe it is called) is way wider than I need and finding the expand option on the tab I was working was not intuitive at all. The ability to resize the width of that column would be very helpful.

  11. Make real time syncing with web from desktop app

    I have experienced issues with desktop app syncing immediately with web app or not syncing at all so when I am trying to work from my desktop app users of the web app aren't seeing the latest or sometimes don't even see a new channel i created, for example.

  14. bottom horizontal scroll bar is too small for mouse

    the bottom horizontal scroll bar is too small for my mouse. I end up clicking the item behind TEAMS or highlighting teams content rather then scrolling.

  15. Make it faster to startup

    When Windows boots, Teams opens and then sits there non-responsive for quite a long time showing a person but no detail.

    This is on 16GB RAM/1TB SSD/100kbps setup. I.e. a fast environment.

    Teams needs to start running and being usable a LOT faster.

  16. html signature mail for windows 10

    Please allow html signatures in windows 10 Mail application.

    The app supports HTML mail naively. It is a pain that the signature is plain text only.

  17. join meeting audio: teams calls phone

    not a new idea but, please allow us to choose more audio options while dialing into a meeting, this was the most useful thing in s4b I could choose to join with skype for bus, not to join audio, or have a handy list of phone numbers for skype to automatically call. please bring that to teams, my users are complaining so much about this little feature,

  19. Support back/forward mouse buttons in app

    It would be great if the desktop app (I'm using Windows) would support back/forward navigation using assigned mouse buttons (usually thumb buttons). This works in web browsers by default, but the desktop app requires clicking the back/forward arrows in the top-left of the interface.

  20. Takes too many resources

    Teams hogs way too many resources on Windows 10. Too much RAM and too much processor to keep it running
