  1. Outlook (Mac) and Teams better integration

    Hi,
    Outlook for Mac and Teams are not working together regarding attachments or mail publication:
    - For attachments: it could be great, from a mail with attachements, to have a quick and easy way to publish the attachment into a channel (with a comment). Today, to do that, I need to save the attachment to my Mac and then upload it to Teams...
    - For emails: I know that it is possible to send a mail to a channel but it could be better to have a "publish to teams" action in the email ribbon that act as a way…

  2. Make Teams for Mac available in App Store/VPP

    I love that OneNote is available in the Mac App Store, and it'd be great if Teams were too since it's also free. Deploying, updating and generally managing VPP apps is much simpler than having to package manually etc. This would make deploying Teams to our Mac departments much easier.

  3. Add support for Keynote presentations

    When presenting from Keynote via sharing your Keynote window you see the slide thumbnails and formatting options like you're looking at the presenter's screen instead of what is being presented. You cannot see this on the Mac that is sharing. Only on the Teams sharing screen.

  4. support for sharing MacOS full screen apps in other Spaces (virtual screens/desktops)

    Most Mac users work with fullscreen apps when they are serious to focus on something. A full screen app gets it's own Space. When using MS With Teams functionality as is, you can only share non-fullscreen windows that are on the first Space (Desktop 1) or share all of Desktop 1. When I work with MS Teams, I have to fiddle with my windows to make it work. Sometimes, I'll have the window shared, but then click to make it full screen which drops it from the share. In either case this cases meeting delays.

    Instead I'd like to share…

  5. status

    my status constantly changes to away every time i navigate to a different open application. it would be nice if skype and teams could reflect the same status, or if teams could simply stop randomly signing me out.

  7. Mac: Please include an audio input/output/video device option for "System Default"

    Currently in Teams calls (same on SfB Mac actually) when I go to chose which audio device to use, I am not presented with a choice of "System Default".

    Every other VOIP program on the Mac (personal skype, google hangouts, facebook) has this option which allows you to control your device from one spot and have it used in all your clients.

    Can we please add this option .... cross OS would be ideal, if it's possible in Windows too.

  8. Better MacOS X menu integration

    Mac OS X defaults should just work. I want a preferences menu item. I want the hotkey that goes with that. I want a menubar, and not a start menu.

  9. macOS notification center

    It would be extremely helpful if Microsoft Teams would integrate with macOS Catalina's Notification Center. Currently, Teams only provides a small pop up notification and if you are using 2 or more displays, you can easily miss these notifications.

  10. Remove the "hidden" Window for notifications on Mac OSX

    Currently when I click on the Window menu item, there is a permanent option in the list for "Microsoft Teams Notification". I assume if you used MacOSX notifications instead this may not be necessary. Is there some way to remove this otherwise? It doesn't actually do anything when you click on it.

  11. Allow AirPods to mute/un-mute the audio

    AirPods allow you to start/stop audio by clicking on the base of the airpod. It would be nice for Teams to consume this signal and allow the audio to be muted/un-muted.

  12. Add to Mac Share Menu

    I'd love to be able to have Teams in the Share Menu from different apps. Instead of having to copy and paste a link

  13. CMD+Tab on macOS does not bring main window up

    When switching between programs on the Mac the CMD+Tab keys will switch to the Teams Program - but the main window is often minimized. I either have to click the program on the Launcher or go via the Window menu.

  15. Don't minimise Teams when screen sharing a different screen (multi-screen setup)

    Currently when you share a screen the primary Microsoft Teams window is minimised (down into the dock on Macs). When this occurs you can no longer see the video feeds of the meeting participants, chats, virtual whiteboard, etc.

    I have a 3-screen setup. When I share a screen that the primary Microsoft Teams window is not present on the application should not automatically minimise the primary Microsoft Teams window.

    Presumably minimising the window was seen as a usability enhancement or to avoid sharing the video feed as part of the screen share, however for multi-screen environments this is unnecessary.

  17. Remote control on macOS

    Allow me to use remote control when a colleague uses Microsoft Teams using macOS too. At this point, I can only remote control users sharing their screen from Windows.

  18. Need prompt before updating on MAC

    Every time there is an update for the desktop client (at least on Mac) the client updates automatically without prompting the user, which always seems to invalidate the session. There should be an option to prompt the user before the client is updated. (similar to how VS Code does it, perhaps)

  19. Please remove the automatic minimize feature on the Mac version

    Please remove the automatic minimize feature on the Mac version. Very annoying. Happens when the app hasn't been accessed in a certain amount of time but we still need it to remain open.
