  3. Teams logs me out

    The desktop app of teams logs me out constantly. I get new message notifications on my phone, but then I have to log in manually to the desktop app almost on a daily basis and the app doesn't remember the credentials either.

  4. Multiple windows on multiple monitors

    Teams needs to support multiple monitors and the ability to have different windows of teams on different monitors. Like if I join a meeting or I'm on a call and someone is presenting, I want that on monitor 1, but I want the Teams main windows on monitor 2 so that I can still chat with someone else, or chat in a team channel. Skype has this ability and it works great

  5. Teams will auto create shortcut on desktop and duplicate shortcuts will be synced to OneDrive Known folder

    The problem is that a separate shortcut is created on each and every machine that a user logs on to. With OneDrive known folder move enabled in the environment, users of multiple machines end up accumulating a heap of duplicate Teams desktop shortcuts.

  6. 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.

  7. 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. 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.

  9. Takes too many resources

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

  10. Microsoft Teams - Include Downloads Manager

    When downloading multiple, large files - the current Teams desktop client DOES NOT show a 'progress bar'...only a toast notification when the files have finished downloading.

    Include a "Downloads" or "Download Manager" button on the left side that shows downloads in progress, and that allows incomplete downloads to be 're-downloaded'.

    At this time, there is no way for me to know if everything downloaded without comparing files in my 'Downloads' folder to the files in the channel (slow, inefficient).

  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. Responding to specific messages

    On the phone app, we can respond to specific messages and send voice notes. Can this be added to the PC version?

  14. Integrate the Windows 'Teams' app into Outlook

    Can the desktop Teams app be integrated into Outlook?

    As most people have outlook open all day on their desktop, it would make sense to integrate Teams into Outlook for internal instant communications and file sharing, video chats and meetings etc?

  15. Like button in toast message popup

    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.

  16. 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.

  17. Have multiple windows concurrently (side by side if needed)

    Currently there is no way( or at least it is not obvious) to have multiple windows. For instance in the file I would like to be able to see different folders at the same time.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
