  1. Edit Office documents without leaving Teams

    While it's wonderful you can view docs shared with a team and said doc gets placed in share-point. The moment you edit the doc you get sent to a web-browser. Considering it's literally HTML, it would be nice if that session presented with within Teams rather than a separate browser pop up. It would make the collaboration process more seamless as well s allow people to continue their persistent chat in teams while editing and not be tempted to use the suddenly disjointed chat built into word/excel.

    I feel the more seamless this experience is (only pop up word if…

    Hi everyone, this feature is completed and will ship to your clients soon. Some of you may have received it too soon (our error, not yours) and then seen it mysteriously disappear. Don’t worry, it’s coming back! :-)

    Cheers,

  2. Ability to check call quality ahead of calls/meetings

    Skype for Business has a way to check your call quality so you can hear how you sound. Teams really needs this as well. I've had a few calls where I can hear the audience clearly, however they say my audio quality is poor.

    I'd like the ability check and see how I sound before I join a Teams meeting or make a call.

  3. Start a meeting with the mic muted, like Skype and Lync do

    When joining a meeting, the video and mic should be turned off by default and need to be turned on by the user either per session or globally via settings. This is the default behavior for both Skype for Business and Lync 2013 (as I recall).

  4. Desktop notifications for Windows

    Need to have notifications in the action centre on Windows 10 also preferably make the desktop client a UWP app (I understand it is not currently) for full integration of notifications and (hopefully) Cortana

  5. Proper MSI Installer for VDI

    The recent MSI installer isn't really what people are asking for. It doesn't actually install to program files. It just puts an installer in program files which then installs to the users app data. This doesn't work for me at all.

    In a non-persistent VDI environment the application has to install on every login (unless I roam appdata/local which I don't want to do). This isn't the end of the world as it's fairly quick but the problem comes when you also use Yammer. Yammer has the same weird install method and when both teams and yammer try to install…

  6. Busy Options (Busy on Busy or Voicemail on Busy)

    Provide a functionalitiy similar to the one is SfB Server.

    There are two items tracked here:
    1) Busy on Busy - Incoming calls will be rejected with a busy signal if the user is busy.
    2) Voicemail on Busy - Incoming calls will be forwarded to voice mail if the user is busy.

  7. MacOS shortcuts and keyboard interactions

    Please make MacOS default interactions (keyboard shortcuts/nav, menus, prefs, notifications). Other Office 365 apps are more native than this.

    --

    Request that text navigation shortcuts follow the system standard:
    cmd+left arrow – jumps cursor to beginning of text
    cmd+right arrow – jumps cursor to end of text
    option + left arrow – jumps cursor left one word
    option + right arrow – jumps cursor right one word


    One of the issues with this is that the native notifications from other apps cover up the Team ones when both are active. If it was a native app, these notifications would stack.

  8. Create teams meeting from calendar using OWA

    When using calendar on OWA, there is no way to create a Microsoft Teams meeting. You need to create it from Microsoft Teams instead.

  10. Mobile app doesn't have all the tabs like the web or desktop app does

    Mobile app doesn't have all the tabs that the web Mobile app doesn't have all the tabs like the web or desktop app does. Example is I added planner and third party website to the team. Doesn't show in mobile app and I get error "can't open the file" when clicking on the app in the conversations area.

  11. Fix Mac client updates

    Multiple problems reported:

    1

    It seems whenever the OSX client updates, we get a "An update is ready to install. Microsoft Teams is trying to add a new helper tool." authentication request, then the app quits. Or sometime the app just quits on it's own without any notification. When it launches again, the "loading" box then sometimes doesn't disappear. I really want to roll this out for our teams to start playing with, but having the app quit on us ~10 times a day without notification makes it unusable.

    On most Macs I’ve tried, the automatic update framework is…

  12. Allow turning off automatic spell checking

    Please add the ability to turn off the "check spelling as I type" feature in the Microsoft Teams Windows app. I use the web app instead of the Windows app simply because I cannot turn off this feature in the Windows app. My opinion is probably in the minority, but I find automatic, real-time spell checking (with the squiggly red lines) to be the most annoying feature ever implemented in any computer program -- even worse than "Clippy" the Windows paperclip help assistant.

  14. 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.

  17. 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.

  19. 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.
