    • sound output mac

      Video call sound comes out of standard speakers, and no way to change to what the system is configured for, like external speakers.

      • Presence/Status doesn't show 'Online' until activating the macOS app

        Often, the Teams app on macOS will show me as 'Away' after 3 mins of inactivity in the app, even though I'm still working on my computer. Doesn't realise that just because it's not the active window, that it doesn't mean I'm gone.

        • Support the apostrophe key on a Mac in spell checking

          The current version doesn't seem to understand the ' key when doing spell checking. If I type the word "shouldn't" Teams marks "should'" as a spelling mistake. When I choose to correct this to "shouldn't" I end up with the word "shouldn't't". The same thing happens with doesn't and other words with ' in them.

          • Teams on Mac doesn't respect window hiding

            If the teams window is hidden on Mac (via cmd+h or by opt clicking on another window while the teams window is active) notifications will cause the window to become unhidden.

            • Persistence and Notifications trouble on iOS/macOs

              For iOS/macOS desktop - data doesn’t persist for all messages. While in a menu i see too old messages, and after I enter a conversation - another pack of newer messages are loaded on fly so I need to scroll down to look at newest ones . Also there’s troubles with notifications many of which don’t appear at all

              • mac graphic

                Teams Helper usually trigger the discrete graphic card on Macs with dual graphic cards. This leads to higher energy consumption.
                Could you please stick to the integrated graphic card in all cases?

                • Using a Mac, the left-alt-2 key cannot be used to get the '@' character in the text fields in Teams for Mac.

                  Please allow Mac users to obtain the @ character using left-alt/option-2, as all other applications for MacOS do. Now, only right-alt/option-2 works.

                  • Please make it possible to zoom in on the Mac client

                    Most other Mac tools allow the user to Command+/Command- to zoom in on the screen. The fonts are really small for these old eyes of mine.

                    • Open eml file in Outlook when on macOS

                      if there is an *.eml file in the channel file and its opened, it open up in Mac Mail rather then Outlook even though the default mail client is set to Outlook.

                        • Teams link will not resolve on Mac

                          I have Teams installed on my Mac.  I coworker sent me a link to a file on a Teams site. When I click on the email link it launches a web browser window that encourages me to install the client version of Teams - which I am already using. There is no way I know to resolve the link - very frustrating.

                          • scope a search to the current chat

                            Searching in teams is useful but it would be nice to be able to limit what actually gets searched.

                            I often find myself needing to scope my search to just a single chat. i.e. "I know <thing-i'm-looking-for> has been typed in the current chat, go and find it"

                            Please could you add this capability? i.e. Specify the scope of a search to just be the current chat.

                              • Teams client Mac asks way too often for two-factor (MS Authenticator) even when Macbook lid is closed

                                When my closed Macbook comes close to a new wifi, my MS Authenticator asks for "approval" on my Apple Watch. First it was confusing why someone tried to access my account until I realised that it was the Mac Teams client that tried to connect. Need teams to better handle authentication towards Office365 with two-factor authentication enabled.

                                • Teams for Mac OS: allow for a (new) main window to be opened/created

                                  The current Microsoft Teams has its main window disappear on me at least daily (and I'm not sure why that happens). The only way to get it back is to quit Teams and re-launch it.

                                  Having a way to "File - New - Main Window" would be fabulous (short of figuring out why that main window goes away of course). This "Main window" exists for Outlook already.

                                    • Fix blurry font rendering on Mac

                                      The font rendering in Mac Teams is different from other mac apps and makes it difficult to read text, especially if working with a lower resolution external screen.

                                      • stop minimizing mac app

                                        Stop minimizing the app. Seriously. If I want to minimize it, that's what the system button is for. Just leave the Teams window where I put it.

                                        • Make keybinds consistent

                                          On the mac version of of teams, if you do CMD+Shift+V in channels, you paste from your clipboard in plain text.

                                          When you do it in i private chat however it starts a call. This is very frustrating, since I'm afraid of using keybinds in teams now as they are context sensitive.
