  3. Tool tips for Close and Minimize remain on the screen

    Minimize and Close button tips remain on the screen after clicking each respective button. The only way to get them to go away is to either bring Teams back into focus or kill and restart the application. It is super annoying.

  5. Add "quick reply" box to chat notification

    Add one line text box to the new message notification so I can respond to a message quickly without switching the apps.

  6. macOS - Don't quit the app when I close the window

    Mac apps, especially something like a chat client, should not QUIT when the user clicks the red X to close the window, as it does for Teams.

    The red X should only close the WINDOW, but the app should remain running and logged in in the background.

    Clicking the dock item should re-open the window instantly to where it was previously.

    I find myself having to reopen Teams dozens of times a day, as well as missing important messages because I didn't realise the app had actually quit and not stayed running in the background.

    Hi everyone, thanks so much for your feedback. We have this fixed with release of GA.
    Hope you all have experienced the fix and app must be running in background even on closing the window.

    StaffHub integration would be nice, a connector for two way data flow?

  8. See usage stats per team in Admin Center

    We need to be able to see usage stats per team in admin center. Current stats show usage per user. This tells us very little as a user can be a member of multiple teams. Business area owner and rollout/adoption managers want to be able to select a team and see how much activity per week/month etc. In our case, this is the only metric that they're interested in.

  9. Render linked images

    If I link an image by URL (jpg, gif, etc.) render it inline in the chat as if I had pasted the image from my clipboard.

  10. Name a chat

    When you start a chat with some people, this chat appears in the Chat tab with the names of people in the chat, and there is no way to rename it. It would be helpful to be able to rename a chat.

    You can now “name a chat” by clicking the edit icon on the left side of the text field. Tweet me at @skprufo if you have any questions!

  12. A Brown Hand (instead of just the yellow)

    Hello, it's 2017. Teams needs to start supporting multiple skin colors in emoji. Why is the default for thumbs-up, shaking hands, and all other "realistic" emoji still white?

    These little things matter, especially now that Teams is available in Office 365 Education tenants. Our young students deserve to see emoji that represent them. Slack is way ahead of Teams on inclusive design: https://medium.com/@uxdiogenes/just-a-brown-hand-313db35230c5

  13. Meeting Policy - presenter permissions

    In Skype, you were able to set your meeting options for any particular meeting. You don't have this option in Teams and everyone from your organization is made a presenter by default, so anyone can mute or remove anyone including the meeting organizer from the meeting. At the very least, we should be able to set an option in the Meeting Policies to not allow entire organization to be presenters, but it would be better if the meeting organizer could decide who if anyone, can have those permissions.

  14. ability to join meeting by calling me instead of using computer mic & speakers

    Like with Skype PSTN Conferencing, let me join the meeting by calling me instead of using computer mic & speakers. The way Teams works today, I have to manually mute my mic and my speakers, and then call out to my phone. It would also be nice to be able to select from a list of frequently called numbers, so I don't have to type in the whole number every time.

    We are pleased to announce general availability of 5,000 member teams. Starting today, all new and existing teams can accommodate up to 5,000 members, double the previous limit. Larger groups can now collaborate effortlessly in a single team and leaders can connect with a broad audience within their organization.

    Thanks for the feedback, and for being great Teams users!

  17. Fully support OneNote notebooks

    The current support for notes is HORRIBLE. Here's why:
    1. It doesn't show the full contents of OneNote notebooks after they are edited in OneNote (the Windows client).
    2. It claims to be OneNote, but it doesn't sync with the mobile OneNote app.

    To elaborate on #1, here's an example to reproduce the problem:


    1. Create a new OneNote page in the notes section of a channel.

    2. Select "Edit in OneNote".

    3. When the note opens in OneNote, click the tab within OneNote to "Add new section".

    4. Add some text to the "Untitled page" in the new section.

    This new section will…

    Full OneNote support was released a couple months back and it looks like this topic missed getting updated.

  18. Allow email notifications for more notification types

    More options on notifications. Would be better if all notifications had an email option. Could easily be done via a check box next to how you would like to be notified. This applies to everything; team notifications, personal mentions, chats, etc. A lot in my organization have complained about missing things because there is not an option of email for most notifications.

  19. Save audio / video devices

    On each meeting I have to re-select my audio and video devices. It would be good of those would stick, or if there a settings option to control that.

  20. Right To Left Support

    I hope that unlike every other Office product, we won't have to wait for years before decent Right to Left languages are supported.

    Please add RTL by default!
