  1. 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.

      • 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.

        • Teams not using WIndows 10 Features (ex. Pin to Start, People Bar, Cortana, etc)

          Teams not using WIndows 10 Features (ex. Pin to Start, People Bar, Cortana, etc)

          I should be able to pin any item from Teams to the Start Screen
          - ex. Person I am chatting with
          Group I am chatting with
          Teams / Channel / Favorites.
          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.

          I should be able to pin my Teams contacts in the People Bar. I should be able…

          • Would you supply screen shot function?

            Would you supply screen shot function?It's very useful for team members quick communication and it's should be a frequently-used function. I just don't understand how it could be missed in both Skype and Teams.

            • 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…

              • 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.

                • 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.

                  • 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!

                    • Literally copy slack, and stop trying to reinvent what someone else already perfected.

                      This is seriously the worst chat app I've ever used, including the 4 or 5 apps that Google makes.

                      • 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,

                        • Team Dashboard / Landing Page

                          When you click on a Team, it would be nice if you got a dashboard for the team / landing page instead of going directly to the "general" channel.

                          This would be a great place to roll-up information for activity in the team:
                          - recent conversations (from all channels within the team)
                          - recent or all documents (similar to the OneDrive landing page, but scoped to the Team
                          - search
                          - membership list
                          - pinned content
                          - static content (to post general team information)

                                      Right now it's just annoying and clunky. I need something small that doesn't take up a ton of space. Already have tons of windows open on my computer.

                                      • Better integration with Twitter

                                        Better integration with Twitter.
                                        For example, when creating a connector for Twitter.
                                        I would like to have an easy way of selecting all the people I follow instead of adding them one by one.

                                        • Ability to archive Chat Conversations

                                          Please add the ability to archive and/or delete conversation history form the Chat conversations. It's terrible to open a chant while sharing a screen and everyone sees your past chats.
