  1. Improve chat history search

    It looks like those designing the Chat are not really using it. Searching the chat history is still an awful experience:
    1. When you are in a conversation with a person and want to search for something, you want BY DEFAULT the results from the conversation with THAT person. But no, the smart designer of Chat was thinking to flood you first with a lot of results and then to ask you for few additional clicks to filter what you need...
    Please change the default to show the results for the current conversation or add another quick find or provide…

  2. Prepare meeting breakout rooms

    As a creator of a meeting I want to prepare my breakout rooms before the meeting gets started. So i already assigned people to rooms before the meeting is going to start.

    When the meeting is in progress i Only need to open the rooms.

    Next to that you want to send documents directly from the main room to the breakout rooms

  3. High CPU/GPU/Power usage

    For some reason the latest update has Teams using between 8% and 25% CPU idling, doing nothing. There is an issue with this update.

  4. Enable editing of Wiki pages in the Teams Mobile App

    Currently Wiki pages are read only in the Mobile App. Please make them read/write so we can make a quick change to a Wiki page while on the go. Thanks :-)

  5. Copy & Paste is tempermental

    Users reporting multiple copy/paste issues for text:


    1. Can't paste multi-messages. Often, only the first line pastes, the rest disappear. As one user puts it: "On the Windows 10 desktop client it is nearly impossible to copy multiple messages from the chat history. A fraction of a second after letting go of the mouse, the highlight collapses down to a single message."


    2. Can't paste in general: "Copy & Paste is tempermental, when i try to paste text in from other sources it simply doesn't paste, but then if I only copy a few (3-6) words then it does. It means I…

  6. Reliability issues: crashing, hanging, freezing

    Literally Teams will crash 5 or 6 times a day. Hugely annoying and unproductive.

    Thank you for your feedback. The team is actively working on the performance of Teams, and have made some small improvements around crashing, reliability, hanging and freezing. We will share updates as soon as they are available.

  7. Support device call controls

    Support call controls for popular 3rd party headsets (handup, mute) like Plantronics 740-M or Jabra.

  8. Speech to text meeting notes

  9. Expand emojis to reflect the diversity of ethnicity, gender, sexuality and disability of your user base

    Emoji set is limited and almost exclusively white and male. This doesn't reflect the make up of most modern workplaces and certainly doesn't reflect the make up of your global user base.

  10. PSTN Reverse Number Lookup (show username from Address book not PSTN number) in Teams Toast and Call History

    When a PSTN user calls you on Microsoft Teams, if the number is in the address book I would like to be presented with the users name on the toast, not just the PSTN number. The same for call history or anywhere else a PSTN number appears in the client

  11. Search Public and Private Teams

    Users report its very difficult for their peers to find a team that they have created. This hinders their ability to increase team membership.


    Other users report its frustrating that they can't just search ALL the teams at their organization -- that only a small fraction are surfaced to them in their "Suggested" view.


    The capability to view Public Teams when you click on "Create Team" is great.

    HOWEVER... it would be a better user experience if there was a prominent button or link called "Search for Teams".

    Teams needs this discovery capability to avoid the duplication of Team areas…

    Unfortunately we hit some snags and this has moved back to “working on it”. The team is working to make some corrections and I hope to have a release date in the near future. I’ll keep you posted with what I hear.

    Great news! We just started working on this for the AUDIO portion. We are still trying to determine feasibility for the video portion of your request.

  13. Search results should show the full thread

    Searching for something works (mostly), however if the thing you're search for is sufficiently far back in time, then it's nigh impossible to actually get results back. Clicking the message says "go to chat to see the rest", but clicking on that does nothing but take you back to the chat at the current time, rather than the target message. If you bookmark the message and try to get at the location in chat via that, then the client just lags and eventually crashes. (while chewing up 100% CPU) Tried the desktop client (developer preview), web client Chrome, web client…

    Right now it simply loads too slowly, and it has that massive in-your-face splash screen while doing it.

    Application load time is something we are continuously working to improve, and the team is hard at work on fixes. We have validated a recent regression in application launch time that will be fixed in the coming weeks.

  16. @Tag without selection

    Current when @Tagging someone you have to type @PartOfTheirName then wait for the dialog to pop up, then hit tab or enter click the desired name (Person, Channel, Team). If you fail to use the dialog the @Tag fails to work even if you match the name perfectly.

    What we'd like to see is typing @Name or @ChannelName or @TeamName just works even without using the dialog.

    I’m excited to share that I got to use this in our experimental settings the other day. We’ve built it and are testing it internally. I’ll let you know once it moves up in the validation rings!

  17. Links/attachments in chat

    If you attach an item to a chat it will be saved in the files section of the channel. But if you are chatting about a document and you want to reference it you do not want to save it to the channel as it is already in another folder of the SP Site. To create a copy in the channel does not make sense as you are creating duplicates. a link would be the solution.

  19. Add Cortana

    Imagine this chat conversation between two users:

    Patrick : Sales is doing great now...
    James : Yes but I wonder where we are growing?
    Patrick: @Cortana Show me revenue by country in October 2016
    Cortana: [Shows a graph with top selling countries with a link to the Power BI report]
    James: @Cortana What product sells best in Sweden?
    Cortana: [Answers with text] "Superduper Sport Shoe" has most revenue in Sweden for October 2016.

    Now imagine adding in a bot that can answer questions about inventory or even a procurement bot...

    This feature request is still being worked upon.

    I am still trying to get details on what we could expect for Cortana in Teams and will share examples once something is available.
