  1. spacebar ≠ download

    Why would pressing the spacebar mean I want to download a file? In Finder on Mac, spacebar loads a quick preview of the file, so the Teams use of the spacebar is very odd, unexpected, and not at all useful.

    • Add a progress bar to downloads

      Please add a progress bar in the Downloads/Files section. There is no way for me to know how far a download is and as you can imagine, downloading big files doesn't add to the overall user experience. I'm really trying to like this app... But the limited features just doesn't compare to competitors like Slack who design for users, not business.

      • 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.

        • Making it more collaborative with the app Magnet

          I'm using Magnet (a screen split app), but the app doesn't split enough to use it on a standard Macebook 13.3 inch. It says it cannot be smaller, but there is still room left to make the app smaller (on a half screen Macbook)

              • Teams application auto start on macOS fails

                Teams starts and gives up far too soon on the Mac. It should check that the site needed is reachable before failing or fail silently if it's starting as soon as you log in to the Mac.

                Whether you have a captive portal or the app starts and fails before WiFi can join a network - teams never fails to show me a "you've had an error" screen when logging in to my mac in the AM.

                • Open in background

                  Teams is the only program I use in OS X, that will put itself over top of other windows when it's launched after I switch back to another application. Most of the time I just need teams to run in the background when I use it and this is a big annoyance for me. It reminds me of when I used Windows 2000 as a primary OS. Please fix this.

                      • Mac client loses all text and images

                        Recently (since upgrading to High Sierra) I experience that all of a sudden all text and images are gone from the application.
                        It still appears to work, you just can't see what you are doing anymore.
                        When this happens, I have to close the app (Cmd+Q) and start it up again. Then it normally works for a while until it happens again.

                              need a way to paste Teams link from email, into desktop Teams

                              If on a Mac and you click a link in Outlook, it takes you to the website....then it tells you "coming soon!"

                              please give me a place to paste that link right into desktop Teams.

                              this seems like the first thing you should have done....

                                        • 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…
