  1. Markup PDFs in Teams desktop client.

    It would be nice to be able to do live markups of PDFs in Teams channel and/or file areas.

    This would introduce an amazing advantage for a project team working in Teams.

      • Window Actions Like Minimize and Close Are Sluggish

        There is a noticeable delay >1 second between clicking Minimize or Close and having the action be executed by the window.

        It's super annoying.

        • 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.

          • Always crashes. Super slow. Motivation sounds don’t work on the computer app.

            Soooooo slow. Crashes. Doesn’t reload quickly. No notification sounds. Hate the app!

            • what big wide this window is!

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

              • Teams Windows client greatly increases roaming profile size (Appdata\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams)

                On Windows, Teams is available as an end user self-install app. The app installs to AppData\Local, so not part of the roaming profile. However, it stores *LOTS* of content in AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Teams.

                Our organisation uses roaming profiles and profile size policy; users are beginning to exceed a [very generous!] limit, and Teams is a big cause of this.

                Please fix!

                • Replace Electron app with Native app that runs fast on desktop.

                  Desktop Microsoft Teams is, well, basically useless. It is the slowest app I use on any PC. It needs either some MAJOR performance improvements or a complete re-write as a Native app so that it runs fast on PCs.

                  Come on guys, you can do better than this!

                    • Desktop app should use much less system memory.

                      I installed the desktop app, and it's by far the most memory-hungry program in my system. When I took the screenshot, it was even running in the background. And why are there 4 of them? I'm seriously concerned this will cause performance issues with my computer.

                      • Liking something is not enough

                        Need to be able to do much more then liking something. Need to be able to disliking, approving etc. Bagging like and just letting a user express their response with an emoji is a better way to
                        go.

                        • Takes too many resources

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

                          • Would be nice if when changing to a chat screen Message box would gain focus

                            this would allow quicker access to type messages.

                            This is how other chat platforms have operated, my default behavior is to switch to a chat window and start typing... but I'm then usually triggering hot keys.

                            I would like to be able to go into a chat window and immediately be able to start typing without clicking the "Type a new message" box.

                              The fact is there is nothing in Teams that uses the Start Menu except for the app launching. As a Microsoft product I expect Teams to be in the forefront in taking advantage of the Windows 10 features.

                              • Use PNG format for small images

                                Teams seems to use the JPEG format for all images pasted into it, regardless of the size. This format makes pictures such as screenshots look absolutely horrible, with artefacts going rampant around any text or other sharp edges. A lossless PNG format would be more suited for the task.

                                • Yikes! Microsoft Teams Desktop loses connection

                                  I am having an increasing number of people get a message
                                  "Yikes! Looks like someone pulled the plug on the internet."

                                  Seems to be random on who gets the message. These users are both using Windows 7 with the latest MS Updates. They were working fine one day and then get this message the next. I have uninstalled/reinstalled. This seems to fix the issue for a short time. One user abandoned the desktop client for the web version, but the web version does not receive the same functionality with notifications.

                                  Unfortunately, once they receive the message, it's done. No amount…

                                    Adding a like button in the toast message popup in the bottom right corner would greatly increase the speed at which you can confirm a message/question.

                                      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.

                                      • Nice tool for team collaboration, however desktop sharing seem to be missing.

                                        Include desktop sharing capability and other existing Skype for business features if it is really true that Teams will replace SFB.

                                        • Close desktop alert after clicking on the "X" button

                                          Currently, when I click on the "X" button of my desktop app's alert, the Microsoft Team's app opens instead of closing the alert.

                                          Reallyyyy annoying!
