  1. Catalyst Teams Mac App

    Please look at making a Catalyst version of the Mac Teams app for 10.15 (ie. iPad app on Mac).
    The current Electron app is slow and sluggish.

  4. notifications do not display on mac when the app is on a different screen

    Macs have the ability to display apps full screen and then switch between those different apps (usually using a 3-finger side-to-side swipe on the touchpad).
    If the Teams app is full screen but is not the app that is on the screen then the notifications don't show up. The only way somebody would know that there have been any notifications would be on the badge in the dock, however if you've got the dock hidden (which I do) one might go a long time without seeing the badge.

    Please could you make notifications show up regardless of which full screen…

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  8. 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.

  9. integrate planner and teams for mac

    Link the two products Team and Planner so they work for a Mac only environment... - at present no integration or extremely glitchy, it seems they are two separate instances. Even within Team App you cant find all the plans you created within teams itself and definitely nothing from Planner.

    It would be really great if plans created in Planner would be available in Teams and vice versa. Working in planner as collaboration is not great as it opens window after window after window - please also fix this nonsense

  11. Fix Dragging Screenshot Preview Window to Drop onto Chat or Channel

    On macOS 10.14 or later, when you take a screenshot with any keyboard shortcut, you get a preview window like in the attachment right above the dock near the Trash.

    You can't drag the screenshot preview window and drop it into Teams like you can for...any other app like Outlook.

  12. iWork document compatibility

    Unless I'm missing something, I can't upload iWork (Pages, Numbers, Keynote) files into Teams. The upload process reveals the contents of the container, rather than presenting the file itself. e.g. My Cool Presentation becomes a bunch of independent files,

  13. do not unmute my computer speakers

    when joining a meeting, if my computer speakers are muted, please leave them muted, as that's the setting I have configured. Do not override my preferences.

  14. Create dark versions for iOS and macs

    Dark mode is so much better and easier on the eyes! I love it on my windows computer, but wish I could use it on my Mac too!

  15. Mac: While Sharing Screen, allow interaction with Mac's Top Menu Bar

    This is less on an idea and more of just an issue: I was sharing my entire screen yesterday, had unpinned Microsoft Team's screen shot menu, and wanted to access some menu items in another application. But every time I moved my cursor to the Apple Menu area, the menu for Teams appeared. I had to stop sharing in order to access the menu items for that application (then reshare again to continue demoing). Please allow me to interact with the normal Mac Menu Bar while sharing my screen with Teams.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. When using the iPad with split keyboard, you can’t click the send button

    I use the split keyboard on an iPad. When I try to use teams conversations, the little button to ‘send’ disappears behind the keyboard and so does the text window btw. I must change to the docked keyboard in order to send. Please fix!
