  3. Blank screen after opening app

    Post the Teams logo page when the app is opened and before the channels/chat homescreen there is a blank screen moment. This is especially obvious on dark mode since the white screen of the logo is followed by a black screen followed by the app opening. Could we leave the logo page on longer and directly jump into the app instead of the blank screen please?

  4. Help should spawn a floating window

    Help should spawn a floating window, the way Office programs work. It's annoying to have to go back an forth in a single window while learning to use teams.
    I read the instructions click a link to try a step and the instructions disappear.

  5. Teams and Sharepoint

    We have started using Microsoft Teams to use the collaboration space and created several teams (which turns out to be very useful). but at the same time we have now many different Microsoft Teams and SharePoint Sites. We haven't used SharePoint before and are now considering in using SharePoint for data storage and collaboration for the whole Company. But now we'd like to have one Team Site as the starting page for all collegues. How can we connect the existing SharePoint Sites with each other?

  6. Search for Teams Help

    Please add a Search function to the Teams Help button. The Browse / FAQ format assumes you know what will be asked.

  7. 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.

  8. print or export list of members in excel and include whether they are an owner or member

    I have a team of many members (300+). Getting a list of them to ensure we have captured all members would help.

  12. Fix the add a custom background piece, my \Uploads files are not seen as available in Teams for selection.

    Fix the add a custom background piece, my \Uploads files are not seen as available in Teams for selection.
    1.) Help search doesn't help on the issue.
    2.) The function itself isn't prominently named or displayed in options.
    3.) The google.com instructions don't help.
    4.) There isn't an obvious path revealed for user pictures in options.
    5.) I have stock patterns available, but my uploads dir only has my pictures that don't display.
    6.) Version isn't obvious, what versions can change backgrounds.
    7.) An awful large number of failures noted above for a Microsoft app.

  14. Education license for non-profit

    Alow non-profit (but non-accredited) education oroganisations to get an A1 license so that they can still teach their students. At the minimum, provide them with the "Assignments" and "Grades" tabs. This is currently impossible and a lot of educators are forced to provide remote learning due to COVID-19. Google provides this, why does't Microsoft?

  16. It's confusing

    The whole app is confusing and veary hard to understand how to use properly. Adding assignments button is hidden and hard ti fing, what are folders for if i cant ad anything to them ? Why is clicking on a subject just minimasing end opening the general button and why do you need to click on a general button at all ? Mesages are ok but it could be made more redable. It's justa a confusing mess from start to the end.

  17. Feature to migrate SameTime contacts to Teams

    Sametime permits us to maintain 500 contacts. It's difficult to migrate all those contacts with groups and subgroups into Teams. Hence please provide a facility to migrate those contacts to the same groups and subgroups.

  18. Неочевидный интерфейс

    Неочевидный интерфейс как для нового пользователя приложения. Непонятно где, куда, зачем тыкать когда нужно позвонить, создать канал, ответит на сообщение в конце-концов...
    Непонятно как звонить в каналах;
    когда отвечаешь на звонок - первая эмоция «черт, почему включилась Камера??? Меня что, все видят???» - только потом понимаешь, что это просто возможность выбора ответа на звонок (зачем вообще это дополнительное окно? сделайте настройку по умолчанию);
    Почему нет возможности цитировать сообщения в личном чате? Да и в каналах она какая-то корявая.
    Почему я не могу просмотреть все контакты? Когда перехожу в личные чаты, вижу только «последних», чтобы добавить нового приходится писать в поиске…

  19. Docs.com article for Desktop Client Settings in desktop-settings.json/settings.json

    Official docs.com article for Desktop Client Settings in desktop-settings.json/settings.json. There is almost nothing official on these json's which control desktop client behavior. It would be good to understand more about them

  20. The app on Android and macOS starts very slow.

    Please fix startup time. It takes "years" to start the app and to be able to make a call.
