  1. There needs to be an alert to indicate new items added.

    Within the desktop version, there is no indication that new items have been added to review... or new comments

    The only communication is via email this would really improve the usage of teams

  2. Some notification bugs in moste recent client

    Here are some bugs, I'd like to mention, which I am experiencing for some weeks now:

    The notification doesn't work any longer, although, I downloaded the most recent client from the o365 Dashboard - regardless whether I choose the option "banner only", "banner and e-mail"

    e-mail notification doesn't work either with MS outlook, regardless which setting I choose - seems like the options are only click dummies without function

    sound issues with notification - some times I get a sound, when receiving a new message, some times not.

    Please fix these I really like MS Teams, thank you

  3. Is it possible to add translate feature when searching people's Name in Teams?

    Is it possible to add translate feature when searching people's Name in Teams? We think this is very serious problem as we have 2 different type of Chinese (Traditional Chinese and Simplified Chinese). We have employee in China and their name will be built with simplified Chinese; however, we are the IT admin in Taiwan, so not all of us can really understand simplified Chinese. If we could leverage Translation API on this searching feature, it will be amazing.
    I believe this will also benefit other countries that has similar problem as us.

  5. Font Alterations staying at time of change throughout chat

    The font allows us to change it but only for one message. In a group chat its easier to distinguish who is talking with different fonts but its difficult to change every time you send a message.

  6. webhook

    Events or Webhooks to get notified whenever a message is posted in a channel or team.:

    For development purpose, when we need to monitor a channel, events to a URI must be available whenever a message is posted by a user. This feature is available in several messaging clients like Slack, Webex Teams , Watson Workspace. This would be really useful.

  8. Accessibility Improvements

    MS teams does not work with any screen readers. I have had much difficulty trying to find a screen reader that works with MS teams and had no success. The Microsoft Narrator does not work consistently enough to be reliable and it works far better than any other reader I know of with MS teams.

  10. unable to add people to the free teams

    I have signed for the Free version of Teams using my personal Microsoft account and I am unable to add people to a Team or to my Org in the Free version of Teams. When trying to invite someone I get an error that says "We're having trouble sending the invitations. Please try again later". No matter how many times I try, it doesn't work. I even created a new Free-Teams account and got the same result with that one too. Please help.

  11. download

    I uploaded a few files in the "Files" tab of a team, but if I try to download the file back to my PC, it doesn't do anything.
    I tried to right click on the file name and choose download.
    I tried to select the file and then click on the ... on the right side and select download, nothing happens.
    What should I do?

  13. Mac version navigation seems superior

    Why do the small number of my MAC users report great joy from the the MAC Teams aspp as opposed to the Windows version?

    The navigation (< and >) appears to work so much better on the MAC.

    Is there a plan to match the functionality?

  15. Make it possible to return to Office 365 from the Teams app

    We use the browser in Office 365 to go to a Team which opens the Teams app. But from the Teams app it is not possible to go back to Office 365/SharePoint Online.
    It is possible to create a new tab which opens the website but this is an I-frame and does not look nice. Also you have to log in again to a site that you just visited.

  17. Allow the users to turn off e-Mail notifications, and still keep the standard phone/computer notifications on.

    Allow users to manage, not only what they are notified by, but also what kind of notifications the user would like.
    I cant turn off notifications. If I do, I wont see the messages. I cant let it stay on, because it spams my email more than regular spam-Mail does.

  18. Improve UI/UX

    The UI is very difficult to navigate. As a user I have to move between teams and chats and feed to see my activity making me change environments every time.

    Some Ideas:

    1. A Team should be a master object
    2. Activity, Chats, Meetings, Wiki and Files should be properties of the object Team.

    First left bar should show A list of teams

    1. When I click on a Team it should show on the next bar a list of chats, one to one and groups.
    2. Tabs on top should let me move between chats, meetings, wiki and files.

  19. TeamsOnly mode - Change Skype for Business Sign-On SIP Address

    Present the Options icon in the Skype for Business client after a user has been upgraded to TeamsOnly mode, so the user can change the sign-in address.

    Once a user has been set to TeamsOnly (UpgradeToTeams) mode, the Skype for Business client displays a new splash screen after sign-in. This splash screen displays a notification that "Your organization is now using Teams", and prevents the user from using the Skype for Business client.

    The new Teams splash screen hides the Options box which would allow you to change the sign-in address. For those testing, supporting multiple organizations, or simply have…
