  1. Linux client

    My team has some users on Linux, and one benefit Slack has is a Linux client. Without a Linux client on Microsoft Teams, some orgs may have to turn away in favor of Slack so everyone can participate without keeping a browser open all the time.

  3. Audio calling from browser

    From day 1, there is no way we can make audio calls from the browser. This is a very much required features quite a few users use Linux and there is no way we can use Teams with them.

    on the backlog  ·  Warren responded

    The request for 1:1 calling Chrome support is still “on the backlog”.

    Completed items:
    1:1 calling works in Edge.
    Group calling and meetings works for Edge & Chrome.

    I hope to have more information to share soon.

  4. Add support for Linux

    I'm a Microsoft employee and had to interview a candidate today using Teams. The candidate only had access to a Linux computer. Teams doesn't support this use case. Please fix.

  5. Only suggest desktop app download on supported platforms.

    Only suggest desktop app download on supported platforms. Unless the desktop app can run on Linux DotNet, it's not applicable to a client using Chrome on Linux, or ChromeOS.

  6. Support Screen Sharing in web browser

    The web app doesn't support screen sharing. This would be a huge setback for the linux users as we don't have a native Linux client.

  7. Making phone calls from the Teams web application

    Making phone calls from the browser app is not possible yet. This would be an alternative for a native linux app. This is the only feature I am missing now

  10. Our observations. Overall we will keep using Teams but needs some work

    Too much real estate
    chat-content-to-app-window-size ratio is waaay too low. Only about 1/3 of my app's window contains chat content. A good chat app should display a rich chat history and occupy the bulk of the window space. Slack and Hipchat both did this much better.

    What's wrong with single-flow chat?
    The nested conversations make for an awkward message flow. This can make it difficult to find old messages in the chat history or to see recently posted messages

    Now you see me ...
    conversations auto-collapse after a certain number of messages (even for messages I haven't yet read!) and…

  11. Bug report: Link missing when hiding large text-body in Teams Webhook Connectors

    So, I followed the advice given here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Where-is-the-best-place-to-report-bugs/td-p/32183

    I posted a bug report here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Bug-report-Link-missing-when-hiding-large-text-body-in-Teams/m-p/169272#M12158

    Apparently, it has been marked as spam, so Ill try posting the same report here:

    I have been looking for the documentation for Teams Webhook Connectors. I did a Bing-search for 'MS teams webhook connector documentation' and found soemthing [1]. The documentation doesn't fully explain the purpose of all fields that can be included in the POST request. I hope there's a better resource out there, somewhere, but I highly doubt it.

    To the point: An example webhook POST [2] specifies that the body of…

  13. Ability to turn off 'Are you still here?'

    Gets quite annoying after a while as it affects multiple windows during the same session. I am on Chrome (Ubuntu, Linux)

  14. Add a setting that allows skipping the "Join conversation"/"Launching Microsoft Teams" tab by default

    Every time I open a Teams link in my browser, it shows a tab that attempts to open the Teams desktop application. The "Join conversation"/"Launching Microsoft Teams" tab.

    I'm on Linux, I don't have the application on my desktop, so this is pointless.

    Add a setting, that would allow me to opt-out of ever seeing this tab again. I'd like the Teams link to take me directly to the Team web application.

  15. Use system notifications and system APIs

    Properly using system notifications instead of running your own would be a better experience for the user. It would respect their do not disturb settings and keep an alert in the notification area of the desktop.

    Using the proper system APIs for notifications would also help show notification bubbles on applications to quickly let the user know how many events he has missed.

  16. Native window manager in Linux app

    Linux has different desktop environments each of them has different kind of windows manager that provides window borders and window header with close,minimize buttons, etc.

    Teams ignore window manager at all ant provides its own window controls for main application window.

    This is looks ugly because it does no comply with system look and feel. Also there is no window borders so it is hard to resize main window.
    No shadows and other effects, because most of them related to default windows manager.
    Look into attachment how teams window looks that in placed over web page.

    VS Code for Linux…

  17. user agent string

    Some organisations use a third party Authorisation layer (like DUO Security for example) and the Teams Client for Linux cannot authenticate against those yet. The web version works because you can change the default user agent string that requests use, it would be great to have an option (can be a command line flag) to override the user agent string used by the application. This functionality is already built into Electron so it should just be a matter of enabling the command line flag.
