  1. Browser/OS independent desktop notifications using HTML5

    Not sure about the desktop clients because there isn't one available for my operating system. However, the web app is essentially unfit for purpose because I can't tell when anyone is trying to contact me unless I sit there, constantly staring at the app.

  2. View Pinned Chats in mobile app

    Showing pinned chats t the top of the Recent Chat list works great in the desktop app. It is especially nice for pinning named group chats. But this functionality doesn't appear in the mobile app. Users should also be able to view pinned chat groups in the mobile app.

  3. Windows app should be in the Windows store

    Even if there won't be a modern UWP app for Teams, the Win32 app should be available through the Microsoft Store so it is discoverable by Windows 10 users (that's where I looked first, with no luck of course).

    This feature is still in the works. There was some adjustments to the overall strategy.
    I’ll try to get some additional details and share them with you.

  4. data retention

    on the settings there needs to be something for enterprise data retention. e.g. after 60 or 90 days data is purged off, or conversations roll off.

  6. Teams Meetings appear to take a lot of CPU (avg 32%)

    When running a Teams Meeting on my Surface Pro i7 (2017), my screen-sharing, video meeting used about 30-32% of my CPU constantly. This seems different than Skype for Business. My battery life went from 100% to 35% over the 2 hour meeting.

  7. Sharing Desktop Zoom in and out capability

    Participants should have the capability to zoom in on the user who's sharing their screen with the participants.
    this functionality is available on Skype for business, it's called Actual Size / Windows Fit

    We are actively working on developing a solution for this. I will update when this gets to testing/validation.

  8. Remove Bot Mention Requirement

    It seems as though currently all bots only work if you @mention them, so my assumption is that this is a requirement of the api used to develop the bots.

    Many people from my organization are used to IRC/Slack style bots where an explicit @mention isn't required for bots to parse a message and respond.

    Sometimes there is fun functionality that can be added for a lot of bots and having to @mention a bot really detracts from the user experience of some bots.

    I can also see this getting out of hand when using a lot of bots, so…

  9. Battery life on iOS & Android

    According to iOS Battery report, Teams is responsible for 24% of my battery usage. I am not actively running or using the program, so I assume this is related to background tasks / notifications.

  10. Dark theme problems!

    See thread for issues related to dark theme. Here are some that are noted:


    1. In dark theme, the warning messages are quite unreadable in the private messaging window


    2. When an email is sent in from Outlook on the Web when I’m using the dark theme, the text in the email is very dark as per the original email. When viewing this email with Teams using the default (light) theme, it looks great.


    3. In Teams chat, no way to turn text back to WHITE, when using the dark theme.


    4. Using the dark theme, I have to hunt around a bit to…

  11. Shifts - Date localisation

    Ability to localise dates - In at least AU and UK we use DD/MM - its becomes confusing quickly when half the dates are in local and the other half are in US format

  12. Advance Whiteboard Features

    Advance whiteboard features would add massive value to remote teams like icon & photo finder, wireframes templates, idea voting,web page capture or via URL, prebuilt templates (eg.Strategy, Agile, ideation, mind maps, sixsigma tools...)... A good inspiration can be found in Realtimeboard or Mural.

    We are working on improving the Microsoft Whiteboard in Teams to include new features including sticky notes, pen and ink, and drag and drop capabilities. These features will enable team members who don’t have access to a touchscreen or Surface Hub to participate in whiteboarding sessions during Teams meetings. You can read more details here: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/blog/2020/07/08/reimagining-virtual-collaboration-future-work-learning/.

  13. "What's Changed" overlay (Coachmarks)

    You should have a "what's changed" overlay everytime it updates, or at least a pinned topic on this page with a summary of the changelogs.
    Given that it is a new product, some updates might include the missing feature that a team is waiting to switch over to Teams and it would be good to be able to discover this.

    I’m super excited about this one! This should help the daily user experience tremendously. Looking forward to bringing this to you.

  14. Take over locals from windows - or at least allow them to be set

    Allow me to use my language, 24 h clock and similar
    Plus it could proof read my chats accordingly

  16. Ability to provision existing Office 365 groups to Teams through Admin center or PowerShell.

    When trying to create a team, an Owner of a 365 Group can be prompted to add Teams to that Group, but only once. After adding the first group they own, they are not prompted again. There is also no way to manually provision this service to existing Groups in the Admin center.

  17. Stop scrolling while I type a message.

    When I am typing a message, whether in chat or channel, the conversation window scrolls up for as long as I'm typing for. A message this long will scroll up a few dozen lines, while a much longer message will scroll to the beginning of the conversation.

    This year-old bug has popped back up, as some of you may have noticed.

    It is only affecting users who are scrolled at 85%. If you are experiencing this, please send me user logs so the team can crush this bug!

    Thank you :-)

  20. Filter Call History

    For us and our customers it would be helpful to be able to filter the results in the call history. At the moment, this list is just getting longer and longer. So, I'd like to be able to sort and filter by type (incomming, outgoing, missed), date or source/destination number.
