  1. Move the buttons from the right-upper part to the bottom of the window

    It would be better to move the call, videocall, screen-sharing and add people buttons from the right-upper part to the bottom of the screen, because when closing the window one can unintentionally push the call or videocall button

  2. Privacy

    Window needs to open up to a dashboard or a certain place without showing the conversations!

  3. I would like to be able to split out the chat from the teams channels and ungroup my chats

    When You use MS Teams the chat and the channels are all lumped together. To be efficient at work I need to be able to see both at the same time. I tried opening a second teams like I do with outlook when I want my calendar up at the same time as my email but Teams doesn't do that. Either allow us to have two teams programs open at the same time or give us the option to separate the chat from the channels

  4. User Interface

    The UI takes up a lot of screen real estate. Allow users to collapse it down to the navigation bar, then expand when actively using the program.

  5. The start bar icon is very decieving

    The icon for Teams shows the current logged in users' status but the name of the person to whom focus is selected within the chat window. If I was to glance at it it seems like Barb is free, but she is not. I am free but she is in focus in the client. Very confusing.

  6. Make the forward and back buttons' navigation include the video window pane.

    Why is it that the video window pane is not considered part of the navigation? I can use the forward and back buttons to interrupt my viewing and navigate away from my meeting, but not to get back to it after doing so. What gives? Is there a setting I'm not aware of here?

  7. If Teams hits issue, automatic restart

    When Teams detects an issue and needs restarting, it should restart instead of telling the user to restart. I have this happen more and more in my production space.

  8. Make it stable and give a much smaller screen space option. Aka tiny.

    We started with communicator which was nice and small. The Skype added pictures to the most. Now teams is huge and maintains awareness is nearly impossible.

  12. incoming attachment click and drag

    Please add the ability for incoming attachments to be click and dragged to a specific folder or desktop.
    pressing download and having to go to the download folder is really annoying.
    thanks

  13. Able to adjust settings after deployment

    Would be good to be able to adjust the settings after deployment especially from a reg key for corporate as this will help being about to make sure our users have the best experiance with the tools you provide them.
    eg settings:
    date and time
    keyboard language
    Auto Start
    etc ....

  14. Simplify!

    Wie würde ein User denken? Welche Unterteilungen machen Sinn welche nicht? Haltet euch an best practices! Testet mit echten Usern, nicht mit eigenen Mitarbeitern. Gestaltet UX getrieben, nicht IT- oder Unternehmensstruktur-getrieben. Niemand will Monolithen mit schlechter UX. Fangt einfach und mit den Kern an und macht das gut.

  15. could you make a desktop client with local cache and fullscr image view.

    historic chat data is very slow as there is no local cache and it is not possible to open pictures in a separate frame to view the picture i'm required to fullscreen the app which will still give me the header of the app and the image bar
    also zooming on an image is very unituitive

  16. change teams home screen

    when opening teams, it would be handy to be able to set a home screen to easily access they first thing you need, for example student could open onto the assignments tab, and staff could set the shifts tab as their home screen, but make it dynamic as everyone is different

  18. I am seeing many posts but I do not have permission to view the files attached. Why am I being shown them then?

    I should not be shown posts where I do not have permission to view the files.

  19. Add features

    Skype business allowed us to view extention # in description area, Teams don't have that. Also can't hide chats when not chatting.

  20. Is there a way to direct messaging to email?

    I remember Skype had this option and then we were prompted to use teams. If Teams doesn't offer this, is there a way to go back to Skype business?
