  1. interface is vey poor

    App will not open to recent chats. It is not customizable in that way. It will not let you delete a channel. When you click "Chats", it won't show your Team chats, only these private ones. The Activity screen doesn't show you recent team chats. The app is called "Teams" for goodness sake. But the hardest thing to get to is the most basic team chat. WhatsApp, Messenger, GroupMe, and basically all text apps have this simplicity. You're Microsoft! You should do much much better with this.

        • Outlook Integration - Email Draft Recipient check against Teams

          Need help on the switch from the old paradigm of communicating to a team via email to the new one using tools like teams.

          It seems people need lots of reminders, they often revert to the old habit of email even after being added to a team..

          maybe some sort of outlook/teams awareness (plugin/etc) to help encourage teams use in some cases?

          Such as:
          <outlook notification>
          All Recipients of this email are members of Team X; would you rather use MS teams (<link to team>) for this communication?

          etc.

          • Allow a different channel/page as a starting point

            It would be great if it were possible to make the landing page more of a welcome page, to give team members some insight into what channels are available, etc. I find it very confusing to get dumped into the conversations as the landing point.

            • Skype For Business

              The whole thing needs to be much more user friendly. I've been a O365 user since 2011 and had a look at Skype FB today. Now I need counselling! Why is everything "Microsoft" so difficult?
              I develop software so I'm not an IT-phobe.

              • Do a better job of explaining what it does and why I need it.

                I'm sure someone finds this useful, but as someone who gets it installed on their PC as part of an Office 365 there's little to no documentation on what it does or why I need it. What does it do for me that I can't accomplish by emailing a file or using a Skype conversation with someone? I shouldn't need to be a rocket scientist to figure this out.

                    • Teams Overview

                      Why don't you start with a flow diagram or road map of what the product is comprised and what each component in the system is connected and what it accomplishes. Seems I have to draw my own overview diagrams to understand the new app based applications.

                                • complicated

                                  Teams is too complicated to use for most of those people not specialists with computer, looks like it is much suitable for IT department. you know why Chinese WeChat is so popular? Just because its easy to start for everyone, even those who don't know how to type or how to use apps.

                                  We don't expect everyone in the company knows everything about computer, but knows his work to handle.

                                  • Have a comment system with simple / non jargon categories

                                    * Less is more - really gets confusing when you have more than 10 to choose from and I’ll probably choose the wrong one (which will pigeon-hole my suggestion)
                                    * what exactly is “power bar”, “surface hub” and “VPI hub”? My guess is these are for subsets of UI issues. I’m probably sending my UI suggestions down the wrong channel.
                                    Does anyone outside of Microsoft know what these categories mean?

                                      • Tabs: explain clearly the options for Add a Tab

                                        I'm using Teams for the first time today. I want to Add a Tab. The pop-up for Add A Tab has many nice graphics for "Tabs for your Team". I don't want any of those. I just want a new Tab that has identical functionality to the Files Tab already provided. Please include the option of adding another Files-type Tab (and re-naming it, of course) so I can have "Files to Edit' and "Files - Reference". Thank you.

                                          Allow a user to share a link to the Help > Browse Topics page and sub-pages. Currently, the only way to share the page is to tell the user to click Help > Browse Topics but it would be even easier if you can share this page and all sub-pages to quickly show someone how to do a specific task in Teams.
