  1. Add quiet hours to notifications

    I like having notifications on my mobile device, but would like the option to silence notifications for after hours and weekends. Potentially, selectively per channel/team.

  2. Improve Install options - Install for all users and install location

    Hi there,

    I would like to be able to install for all users of a PC via and MSI, the current installer installs into the users Appdata which means each user has to install manually.

    I would like to see a "proper" installer than loads it to Program Files for all users

  3. Configure app start up behavior

    It would be great if I can decide how the app starts up, like start up at boot but minimized, start up at boot maximized, do not start up at boot, etc..

    Switching status to “completed” from “We have this”.

    Hi everyone,

    We do have this feature!
    In order to have the Teams application start in the background you will need to set these two items.

    Under Settings, within Teams, you need to select both of these options:
    1) Auto-start application
    2) Open application in background

    If those two are selected, upon restart of the OS when you first login in, the Team app should start in the background and only appear in hidden application bar and not on the main Taskbar.

    Please NOTE: If you exit the Teams application, then click the Teams’ icon to launch the app, it will now load in the foreground. The background start up is only when you first log into the OS and the application automatically launches in the background.

  4. Scalable UI (zoom feature)

    It would be great to have the Teams desktop app UI to be manually scalable. The default scaling should be set based on the system settings for scaling, but the UI should be scalable independent of this.

    (should I mention Slack allows zoom in/out with Ctrl+ + and Ctrl+- key combinations and Ctrl+0 restores default setting)

    I find the desktop UI too small for my eyes. I do have scaling enabled on my Windows computer, and other apps and programs work well, but the Teams client bothers me being too small.

  5. Edit badge logic in Taskbar Notifications

    When a new chat has come in add a red taskbar notification like slack does. I depend on it to know when I have a message.

    As we shared earlier, we’ve rebuilt the Settings menu to make it easier for you to manage your preferences. Now, you can change your app theme, language, and notifications settings all in one place.
    To access your settings, click on your profile picture and select Settings. This update is out and available.

    If you are having difficulty accessing the updated settings, please let us know within the comments below.

  8. Desktop client crashing on startup

    The Teams desktop client for one of my users is constantly crashing when it tries to start up, then ends up in a restart and crash loop. We tried uninstalling, then reboot, then remove files and directories from %PROGRAMFILES%,%APPDATA%, and %LOCALAPPDATA%, then reinstall. The new installation also crashes constantly. This just started this afternoon.

    Hi everyone – we’re sorry you saw this crash issue! I’m happy to announce that our team has just deployed a solution. If you are still affected, you may need to uninstall and re-install Teams to fully restore service (https://teams.microsoft.com/downloads). Please let us know if you need help troubleshooting.

    Thanks!
