  1. 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.

  3. 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

  4. 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.

  6. 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,

  8. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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

  13. 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!

  14. I'm getting notices that a "helper" is now available; I'd love to see a description of what is being changed versus just forking over my cre

    I keep getting notifications that a Helper is being added to my system and being prompted for admin credentials. It would be nice to get a notice of what the Helper is doing before I authorize a blind update.

  15. Bundle identifier ID of MS Teams for Chrome on MAC

    When trying to set the MS Teams app as default handler for opening and calling of tel-Links on Chrome for MAC, then as default is set the app Microsoft Teams Helper, instead of MS Teams, because both applications have the same bundle identifier ID: com.microsoft.teams.
    Microsoft Teams Helper should have another bundle identifier ID, so that it is different from MS Teams, so that Chrome can connect correctly to MS Teams.
    Please check the attachment for comparison.

  16. stop asking me to download your malware or upgrade to your non-performant cloud services

    0/5 stars

    don't give a $#!+ about your app, ok? your "app" is an os shim, wrapped around an electron app, which loads the same web app that runs in any "supported" browser. and y'all wonder why performance, and system resource utilization sucks?

    you might be fooling the n00bs, but not anyone who is familiar with your bull$#!+.

    and seriously ... does the teams really need to communicate with 2-dozen-plus hosts, multiple times a minute? i think not.

    also, if one does not have OneDrive service, stop asking about that $#!+, as well. it's bad enough my company wastes operating…

  20. Clean up Mac window controls.

    The window controls on the Mac should be cleaned up, they are awkwardly shoved in the corner. When using a full height window title bar they should be centered and moved in, i.e. Safari. Or the sidebar could be extended up. See attached.
