  1. Provide a way for an individual to minimize animated GIF display for their local teams client.

    Animated gifs can be very distracting visual noise and obscure the more important content in a team conversation. Allow an individual to opt out of viewing animated GIFS and automatically minimize them.

  2. Allow the Teams app to take and make calls on my smartphone

    Please make the Teams app able to make and receive calls on my smartphone the same way that Skype does. Smartphones are used by many professionals in their day-to-day work. The inability to use the Teams app to make calls is severely limiting.

  6. Duplicate chats appear when sending private message

    My colleague and I are both using Teams inside our organization. When he started a private chat with me, it opened a new thread (as I would expect). However, after a few messages, Teams opened up yet another new chat, rather than adding the messages to the existing chat.

    Additionally, in each of our Teams client, it says that the other is using S4B. Neither of us is signed into S4B.

  7. Block gifs per user

    Stop the noise!

    I cannot work with all the damned blinking and cutesy images. I'm trying to use Teams for work. If my colleagues want to post gifs, okay, just let me turn them off.

    Slack had a command, /collapse , that allowed me to opt out.

    This is the ONE thing that will keep me from using teams.

  8. Use local settings for Teams Language (FR-fr is currently switching to fr-ca automatically)

    On many computers we've seen that on the the fr-fr PC , the locale is switched to fr-ca in Teams desktop app, which is wrong.

  9. Files Sharing - Drag/Drop

    Files Sharing
    Its a bit annoying that I can't just drag and drop a file to share with someone and that I have to go online to see the file instead of it just showing me the file within the conversation... Doesn't much sense to have to leave the app to another app to see a file.
    All this should work like Slack...!

    You can now drag/drop a file into your compose box. Let me know if you have any questions on this!

  10. Update files are stored on the MAC taking up a lot of disk space

    It seems every time Mac app updates itself, it stores the update file to Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Teams/tmp folder.
    The update files are named as Teamsosx (1).zip, Teamsosx (2).zip etc. Each file seems to be around 80 MB. Since the Mac app updates itself constantly (microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-..), they start consuming significant amount of disk space. When I first noticed this, there was ~70GB of update files! Garbage collection would be welcome.

  11. Maximum number of members

    More than 2500 members!
    We are a company of more than 15,000, in our global capabilities we frequently exceed 2,500.
    Our Architecture community is around 3,600.
    As an alternative a model where a "Master" team can aggregate other teams is introduced, this member limit - is truly limiting.

  13. Free version of Teams or be condemned in small adoption rate.

    Slack and even Discord grow because they are fresh, but also free. Especially Slack is free for up to 10 people. Which is great for small talented teams. And these are the people who adopt it fast.

  14. Don't leave EDIT mode so fast in Wiki

    Every time I leave the TEAM app (windows) or switch tabs in my browser if I am in Teams, if I am editing a Wiki, it goes back to read mode. This makes it really cumbersome to be adding data into the Wiki and having to switch out to get more info.

    At least put a time of 60 seconds or so before the Wiki automatically switches from EDIT mode to READ ONLY mode.

    Now you can just click into the field to edit in Wiki. No dropdown anymore!

  15. show emails sent to Teams in the Teams interface

    Emails sent to teams only show up in the Outlook Group. They should be visible in the Team interface as well. One location, multiple inputs.

    We have this now! When you email a Teams channel, it will show up in the channel with the email message visible to the channel. You will also be able to see the sender and download the email.

  16. Want to be able to @mention an entire team.

    Say for instance, one of our sales people wants to pose a question to our engineering team. And they really aren't sure who to pose the question to.

    Could they have the ability within the sales team, to start a conversation/thread by @mentioning the entire engineering team.

    Just tag the channel “General” in your message and it notify all your users of your message.

  17. Filter shifts by members

    Should be able to filter shifts by member. We could have an option to filter by one or more members, so shifts rows would be displayed only for that members filtered. That would be faster to manage more than one team members at the same time, not looking for one by one member as it is today.

  18. Add private channels inside the team

    Add private channels inside the team. If we have a big department some topics may not be interesting for everyone and some can be not for everyone, so when we have team now, inside the team you can only create channels that are visible and accessible for the whole team, but team admin should have the possibility to create private channel inside the team to discuss anything only with the team participants that he/she will invite.

  19. Wiki tab can be removed

    Why the Wiki tab cannot be removed?
    There's alway the error saying:
    We weren't able to remove the Wiki
    There was a problem removing your Wiki. Please check the Wiki and try again.

    Thanks!

  20. Add channel in mobile app

    Ability to add a channel to team from the mobile app would make it WAY more useful...
